Satan's Throne and the Gog / Magog War

     First, if you have read the study I have written within Part D of the prophecy page called "Rise of the Eighth Head and World War Three", you'll recall that I stated that there are two wars within the book of revelation instead of one.  First is Armageddon and then the second and final war will be the Gog / Magog War.

     Second, if you have read the study I have written in Part 4 of Part A of the prophecy page you'll recall how the earthly kingdom becomes the heavenly kingdom and that one has to happen first before the other.  You'll also recall how the world will then be purged and purified by fire before the heavenly kingdom is established upon the earth in the final end.

     Third, if you have read the studies of Part C concerning the book of revelation; you'll recall that I stated and revealed where the throne of Satan is currently as well as historically located from what is stated within the book of revelation as well as how and when power was given to the beast and when the power and seat of authority was then shifted back to the East from the West along with both East and West being "mirrored" images and likenesses.

     Fourth, if you have read "The Mystery of the Seven Thunders" along with "Rise of the Eighth Head and World War Three" and did a wee bit of studying concerning the summary within "Rise of the Eighth head and World War Three", you'll realize that after the seven thunders, the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem and the appearance of the two witnesses have to happen first before the third and final woe (also known as the seventh trump) as stated within the book of revelation within chapter 11.

     I'd like to pick up here from these studies and reveal to you what I have found..............

     A quick recap.  The throne of Satan as stated and revealed within prior studies, specifically under the subject of "deification of planets" within "the harlot that rides the beast" is located within modern day Istanbul, Turkey.  It is where "The Alter of Zeus" is located within the Acropolis of the Ancient Greek city Pergamon, now known as modern day Turkey, in Mysia, that became the capital of the kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic Period.  Historically it was also known as Byzantium as well as Constantinople.

     Pergamos.  A city in the district of Mysia in western Asia Minor located 15 miles (24 km) inland from the Aegean near the seaward end of the Caicus Valley. Pergamos was settled from early times and served as the capital of the Roman province of Asia from 133 B.C. to the 2nd century A.D. However, under the Romans, Pergamos retained only official and religious preeminence, as Ephesus became the commercial center.

     Revelation Chapter 2 : 12 - 13  "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write", "These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is; and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

     Let us now take a look at modern day Turkey and its largest city Istanbul.  What will be shown here is just short of amazing concerning Turkey as well as Gog / Magog for the two are working hand in hand right along with Rome / The Vatican.  Russia has no part at all being Gog / Magog as would the modern day "religious" experts of prophecy have one to believe although they do have a part in modern day politics.  In other words Gog / Magog is a coalition of Turkey (with Satan residing within), the Northern Middle East along with the four quarters of the earth being that of the religion of Islam and the surrounding countries of Israel and is not the country known as Russia.  Islam is Satan's new b**ch.  I see a major cat fight that layed low for awhile.  Let's move on.

     First, Turkey was part of the Greek Empire, the Roman Empire and also the old Eastern Roman Empire as well as it being part of the "Holy" Roman Empire.  Byzantium, also later renamed Constantinople, was later conquered by Sultan Mehmed of the Ottoman Empire in 1453.  The Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923 and Istanbul became the chosen name for Constantinople / Byzantium in 1930.

      The capital city of Turkey is Ankara. The territory of Turkey is subdivided into 81 provinces for administrative purposes. The provinces are organized into 7 regions for census purposes; however, they do not represent an administrative structure. Each province is divided into districts, for a total of 923 districts.

     Turkey is a democratic, secular, unitary, constitutional republic, with an ancient cultural heritage and is a parliamentary representative democracy.  The President of the Republic is the head of state and has a largely ceremonial role.  The term length is five years, renewable once.

      Executive power is exercised by the Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers which make up the government, while the legislative power is vested in the unicameral parliament, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey.  The prime minister has the power to dissolve the parliament and thus force a new election, which he is obligated to do within four years of the previous elections.  The term of the prime minister is 4 years, unlimited.

     *** The current president is Recep Tayyip Erdogan

     *** The current prime minister Binali Yildirim

     The predominant religion in Turkey is Islam with small minorities of Christianity and Judaism.  There are less than 100,000 people following religions other than Islam, mainly Christians, mostly Armenian Apostolic, Assyrian Church of the East and Greek Orthodox (64,000 people) and Jews, mainly Sephardi (26,000 people).

     *** Turkey's location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia makes it a country of significant geostrategic importance.

     Turkey is bordered by eight countries: Bulgaria to the northwest; Greece to the west; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, Azerbaijan (the exclave of Nakhchivan) and Iran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the southeast. The Mediterranean Sea and Cyprus are to the south; the Aegean Sea to the west; and the Black Sea is to the north. The Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles (which together form the Turkish Straits) demarcate the boundary between Eastern Thrace and Anatolia; they also separate Europe and Asia.

     Turkey is located directly north of Israel.

     Turkey is a founding member of the United Nations (1945), the OECD (1961), the OIC (1969), the OSCE (1973), the ECO (1985), the BSEC (1992) and the G-20 major economies (1999).

     Turkey has become increasingly integrated with the West through membership in organizations such as the Council of Europe, NATO, OECD, OSCE and the G-20 major economies. Turkey began full membership negotiations with the European Union in 2005, having been an associate member of the European Economic Community since 1963 and having reached a customs union agreement in 1995. Turkey has also fostered close cultural, political, economic and industrial relations with the Middle East, the Turkic states of Central Asia and the African countries through membership in organizations such as the Organization of the Islamic Conference and the Economic Cooperation Organization. Given its strategic location, large economy and army, Turkey is classified as a regional power.

     The Turkish Armed Forces is the second largest standing armed force in NATO, after the U.S. Armed Forces, with a combined strength of just over a million uniformed personnel serving in its five branches.  Turkey is one of five NATO member states which are part of the nuclear sharing policy of the alliance, together with Belgium, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands.  A total of 90 B61 nuclear bombs are hosted at the Incirlik Air Base, 40 of which are allocated for use by the Turkish Air Force.

      In 1998, Turkey announced a program of modernization worth US$160 billion over a twenty year period in various projects including tanks, fighter jets, helicopters, submarines, warships and assault rifles.

     In 2005, Turkey began full membership negotiations with the European Union having been an associate member of the EEC since 1963.

     Second, the largest city of Turkey is Istanbul which is located in the northwest part of the country on both sides of the Bosporus at its entrance into the Sea of Marmara.  Remember, this is where Satan's seat / throne is located.

    The emperor Constantine I made the city the seat of the Eastern Roman Empire in 330 AD, later naming it Constantinople. It remained the capital of the subsequent Byzantine Empire after the fall of Rome in the late 5th century. In the 6th – 13th centuries it was frequently besieged by Persians, Arabs, Bulgars, and Russians. It was captured by the Fourth Crusade (1203) and turned over to Latin Christian rule. It was returned to Byzantine rule in 1261. In 1453 it was captured by the Ottoman Empire and made the Ottoman capital. When the Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923, the capital was moved to Ankara, and Constantinople was officially renamed Istanbul in 1930.

     Istanbul is the only city in the world straddling two continents (Europe and Asia).   Following are two maps of Turkey and also the Ottoman Empire.  Notice on the world map where Italy is located.

   

     And now for the original face that had been reflected in Rome and is still being reflected although the two are of different religions and cultures.  The mask is about to come off and neither religion is the true religion nor are they pure.

 May I present for you now the seven hills of Istanbul :

     Istanbul is known as the City on the Seven Hills (Turkish: Yedi tepeli şehir). Whether Constantine the Great was actually aware of the fact that the new city was founded on seven hills is unknown.

      The first hill on which the ancient city of Byzantium was founded, begins from Seraglio Point and extends over the whole area containing Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmet Mosque and Topkapi Palace.  Here is your little horn.

     On the second hill are to be found the Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Column of Constantine. The second hill is divided from the first by a fairly deep valley running from Babiali on the east Eminönü.

     The third hill is now occupied by the main buildings of Istanbul University, the Bayezid II Mosque to the south and the Süleymaniye Mosque to the north. The southern slopes of the hill descend to Kumkapi and Langa.

     The fourth hill on which stood the Church of the Holy Apostles and, subsequently, the Fatih Mosque, slopes down rather steeply to the Golden Horn on the north and, rather more gently, to Aksaray on the south.

     On the fifth hill we find the Mosque of Sultan Selim. The fifth and the sixth hills are separated by the valley running down on the west to Balat on the shore of the Golden Horn.

     On the sixth hill are to be found the districts of Edirnekapı and Ayvansaray. Its gentle slopes run out beyond the line of the defense walls.

     The seventh hill extends from Aksaray to the city defense walls and the Marmara. It is a broad hill with three summits producing a triangle with apices at Topkapı, Aksaray, and Yedikule.

     The Great Altar of Pergamon is in the Pergamon Museum, Berlin. The base of this altar remains on the upper part of the Acropolis circled in red. It was perhaps this altar, believed dedicated to Zeus, that John of Patmos referred to as "Satan's Throne" in his Book of Revelation (Revelation 2:12-13).  Looks like a dragons head with a little horn on the nose !

     In relation to the above information and map, Pergamon, Pergamum or Pérgamo (Ancient Greek: Πέργαμον or Πέργαμος) was an ancient Greek city in modern-day Turkey, in Mysia, today located 16 miles (26 km) from the Aegean Sea on a promontory on the north side of the river Caicus (modern day Bakırçay), that became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic period, under the Attalid dynasty, 281–133 BC.  Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamon are to the north and west of the modern city of Bergama.Currently within the boundaries of the city of İzmir.
     Kingdom of Pergamon at it's greatest extent in 188 BC (colored in olive).

    One should be able to see clearly now, with all prior studies, how Satan works, where his seat is located, who is in league with him and what is soon coming.  Up next, Gog / Magog.

    First, I would like to present another map so you can get a scope of the situation :

 
   Here at right we have Satan who is located in Istanbul, Turkey.

   The prince of the North located in Turkey is Gog with Magog being in modern day Iraq.  The rest of the surrounding countries are part of a confederacy.

      From chapters 16 to the end of chapter 19 in the book of Revelation will be the time of Armageddon / World War 3, the destruction of the harlot and the beast with Christ's second coming and the old testament saints.  There was a resurrection at the time of Christ's death as stated in the book of Matthew 27 : 50 - 54 that will back up what I am stating here as proof.  Psalm 83 will most likely tie in with both World War 3 as well as Gog / Magog.

     In Chapter 20 (verses 1 - 3) after Armageddon, Satan will be cast into prison for 1,000 years and the millennial reign of the earthly kingdom of Christ will happen.  There is no so called "rapture", only those who have been martyred will be resurrected. Verses 3 and 4 show proof of this and this is considered to be the "first resurrection".   This will coincide with verse 6 and also coincide with the book 1 Corinthians 15 verses 51 - 58. 

      The rest of the dead lived not again until after the 1,000 years as stated in verse 5.  This will be known as the second resurrection and ties in with verses 11 - 15.  This is also where the earthly kingdom will be taken up into heaven then becoming the heavenly kingdom as stated in 1 Corinthians 15 : 20 - 28 and also ties in with the book of 1 Thessalonians 4 : 13 - 18.

     Please refer to Nebs Dream Part 4 concerning the earthly kingdom becoming the heavenly kingdom and what happens in between for it will tie in with all of chapters 20, 21 and 22. 

     Please also refer to Rise of the Eighth Head and World War 3 for added referance.

     So let's get back to Gog / Magog, the final war.  You will find all the verses containing Gog / Magog in the following books :

     Genesis 10 : 2,  1 Chronicles 5 : 4,  Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, Revelation 20 : 8 and Psalm 83 just may coincide although it also may coincide with a prelude to Armageddon / World War 3.  Remember, there are two wars stated in the book of Revelation; not just one.

     The following is taken from the work of Carl Ludwigson :

     Ezekiel's Gog is the enemy from the north. In the Old Testament, the king of the north has reference to the areas of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq [see map below; not part of original article]. The word north is used of Syria or the Old Seleucid Empire six times, of Babylon sixteen times, of Assyria one time, and of Iran one time. These are the lands once occupied by Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal.

 

     Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah, Dedan and Syria traded with Tyre six centuries before Christ [Ezek.27:13-16]. These lands clearly define the north. The fact that some scholars equate the names of ancient Middle East cities with modern English cognates is appalling. Meshech is NOT Moscow; Moscow just had its 850th birthday.

     Some have interpreted the Hebrew word 'rosh' in Ezekiel 38:3, which is translated 'chief', to be a reference to Russia. In the Massoretic text the words 'chief prince' carry the accents Tiphha and Zaqeph-gadol. [See Hebrew text on which the following statements are based on this web page.]

     The Tiphha appears under the resh of the Hebrew word 'rosh'; the Zaqeph-gadol appears on top of the sin of the Hebrew word 'nish'.

     The Tiphha to the right, underneath the initial consonant of the word 'rosh', or chief, is prepositive and does not mark the tone syllable. See Kautsch and Cowley's *Grammar*, page 61 item 9.

     The word 'nish' or prince has the accent Zaqeph-gadol which is disjunctive and indicates a pause. See Kautsch and Cowley's *Grammar*, page 60 item 4b.

     So Ezekiel 38:3 should be read as follows: "Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the prince, {pause} chief of Meshech and Tubal:" Rosh is not Russia.

     The Hebrew word 'rosh' is translated head or chief 423 times in the Old Testament. Again, it is absolutely appalling how some scholars can equate the English cognate 'rosh' with Russia. Rosh is not Russia.

Thank you Carl Ludwigson for that lesson.

     All atlases of the Bible printed before the 1940's [and the Russian scare] show the land of Magog to be in the Northern part of modern day Iraq, just north of Baghdad.

 

     Meshech and Tubal are in the area that today is Turkey and portions of northern Syria as well as northern Iraq.

     A final note worth repeating here that was stated within The Harlot That Rides The Beast Study :

     I would like to make a note about Jerusalem, Israel.  I can not currently find a map of the seven hills but they are as follows :

    The northern summit (hill) is called Scopus [Hill One], The middle summit (hill) was called Nob [Hill Two], The highest point of Olivet itself, and the southern summit (hill) was called in the Holy Scriptures the "Mount of Corruption" or "Mount of Offence" [Hill Three] (II Kings 23:13), on the middle ridge between the Kedron and the Tyropoeon Valleys there was (formerly) in the south "Mount Zion" [Hill Four] (the original "Mount Zion" and not the latter southwest hill that was later called by that name), the "Ophel Mount" [Hill Five], to the north of that the "Rock" around which "Fort Antonia" was built [Hill Six], and the southwest hill itself [Hill Seven] that finally became known in the time of Simon the Hasmonean as the new "Mount Zion."

    The Islamic Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque reside within Jerusalem.

    Mecca of Saudi, Arabia is also known as a city of seven hills and is the birthplace of Muhammad (false prophet).  Mecca houses the Masjid al-Haram, the largest mosque in the world. 

    This all ties in together and both are working hand in hand with the harlot's demise coming first, then the false prophet, and finally Satan himself.

    I think the above demonstrates and proves where the seat / throne of Satan is, that Rosh, Gog and Magog is not Russia, that Armageddon happens before the Gog / Magog war and that everything is currently right in place and at the center of today's stage.

    Other cities with seven hills which could very well be part of the above are :  Amman, Jordan;  Macau;  Mecca, Saudi Arabia;  Mumbai;  Tehran, Iran;  Thiruvananthapuram, India;  and  Tirumala, India.
