I have just finished readinG ezekiel in my daily bible study

For those of you who are unfamilair with Ezekiel, it is one of my favourite old testment texts. It follows what happens when the Jews are so naughty that GOD decides to have the mighty Babylon come and squash them so badly, the Original Temple of the Jews is left in Ruins at Jerusalem, and as with many Empires of that day...when you conqured a land, you displaced the people back to your hub. So the Jewish nation was taken away from the promised land.

Nebuchanezza who was the King in Babylon at the time, he warmed to the Jews eventually...and towards the end of his reign...and I think into his Successor who I think could have been Cyrus, the Jews were slowly allowed to return in dribs and drabs, so they were back in the promised land when Babylon itself fell.

There are three distinct parts to the Oracle. The first is how GOD felt about what had happened, and for this visual demonstrations of symbolism were required for the poor prophet to do infront of the populus. During this time, GOD can be heard wrestling in words with the fact that he longs for an amicable relationship with Israel, where he is their GOD, and they are His People on the one hand...with the truth that they are a rebellious house, that go whoring after native idols on the other. The second part of the book deals with Prophecy which could be completed, or might yet still be to come, depending on if you view it as separate, or if you tie it into the third component of the Book.

The final component of the book involves an act of vision, Where Ezekiel is transported through time to the End Times in Jerusalem, and gets to see the Millenial Temple. Which is the version of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, during the time when Christ has his Millenial Reign, and from where he Judges the Nations...and possibly where final judgement takes place. They dynamics, Schematics, and the people who can enter and leave by which gate. The Highest authority in the land appears to be "The Prince" indicating, that the Throne may be occupied by Christ The King.

Gog and Magog are used in two very different contexts in the Bible. but needless to say they are two closely linked Places, or closely linked friend. Some say infact sons of each other, that is to say that Gog creates, or is followed by in some way Magog.

Ma-Gog, would therefore be the reference "from, or of, Gog" They characterize the E
