Ezekiel 38 v1. And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, v2.”Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, v3. And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: v4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws…v18. And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up into my face.
