|Current events commentary: Prophetic implications of recent changes in the Soviet empire|
Who Is Magog? The key to linking current events in the Soviet Union with Bible prophecy lies in determining whether or not Russia is the Magog of Ezekiel 38 and 39. Many Bible scholars say yes. A few say no. Most people are familiar with the yes because of notes in the Scofield Reference Bible and because of the case stated by Hal Lindsey in his immensely popular book The Late Great Planet Earth. Lindsey argues that Ezekiel's Rosh = Russia, Meshech = Moscow, and Tubal = Tobolsk and concludes, then, that Magog = Russia.
