Many of the world events of today can be viewed as the maneuvering of game-pieces on a chessboard, with pawns on either side being conquered and removed, as the major players are moving into their final positions. And though there are wars and riots breaking out all over the world, the first of the significant End Times events has yet to occur: Ezekiel 38-39. The exciting, sobering aspect of this particular prophecy is that it appears to be on our very-near horizon, and could be literally fulfilled within our lifetimes.
The Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy describes in detail a massive attack known as the "Magog Invasion" on Israel by Russia, Iran, and the other Islamic nations of the Middle East and then God's intervention on Israel's behalf. This attack occurs when Israel has been regathered to her native homeland, which was unimaginable before 1948.
But before the Magog Invasion occurs, another war may transpire first: the Psalm 83 War.
