Gog meet Magog
That is exactly what I thought when I read the article. It is chilling. When I read first read prophecy over 25 years ago I could never envision how and why America would be among the countries “coming against Israel”. Unfortunately, now I know.
When I was in seminary about 10 years ago, we had a casual discussion with a few professors and they all agreed there were basically three main ideas floating around. 1) The U.S. did not exist any more (the 1/3 of the world that was burned up or too much internal strife or civil war) 2) the U.S. is represented by the lamb with the forked tongue before the throne, meaning we decided to sit the war out 3) or we no longer existed as the same nation, with the same values. At the time, I couldn’t imagine any of these happening. Lately... I would be more surprised if our leaders didn’t help our historic enemies.
