I. The Syrian

  • (a) He is one of the four horns of the goat in Daniel’s visions ( where the four horns represent Egypt, Syria, Greek, Turkey)
    Daniel 8:8, Daniel 8:21
  • (b) He is foreshadowed by the last King of the North; Antiochus IV, a Syrian foreshadow of the Antichrist, where the chapter skips directly from Antiochus IV to the coming Antichrist.
    Daniel 11:31
  • Therefore; the choice is specifically narrowed down to Syria in Daniel 11:31 which ties Antiochus IV from history to the Antichrist at the end times.
    • Daniel 11:31,35 they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation.(Fulfilled by Antiochus IV Syrian King of the North in the past) 35 ..the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time (to be fulfilled by the Antichrist also a Syrian King of the future).
    • Mark 13:14 The Great Tribulation “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not”…, “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

II. Gog of Gog and Magog

  • Ezekiel 38:17
    Thus says the Lord God: “Are you HE (Gog) of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?
  • The “HE” by reason of the prophets is the coming Antichrist: Balaam, Amos, Daniel, Joel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, and John the Revelator.

III. King Agag, the Amalekite

  • The names Agag and Gog are synonymous, interchangeable and identical. Some translations use “Agag” while others use “Gog”.
    • Numbers 24:7b in the Biblical Hebrew Bible
      “His king shall be higher than Agag,
      And his kingdom shall be exalted.”
    • Numbers 24:7b in the Greek Septuagint
      “His king shall be higher than Gog,
      And his kingdom shall be exalted.”
    • “His king” from Numbers 24:7 refers to the Millennium when Jesus reigns in Jerusalem. “His king” is Jesus.
  • “Gog signifies ‘high’ and eminent, one in a very exalted station: it comes from the same root, and has the same signification, as Agag, to whose height and exaltation there is an allusion in Num 24:7 … where the Samaritan and Septuagint versions read Gog: it is the same with Arabic, ‘Jagog’ …” (the New John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible)
  • The prophet is Balaam
  • Which prophets wrote of Agag? King Agag is the descendant of Amalek. Many prophets spoke of Amalek in multigenerational warfare.
  • Daniel 11 illustrates how God speaks of specific people according to their dynasties; likewise with Gog/Agag and Amalek.

IV. Locusts of Amos 7:1

  • Throughout scripture locusts are used to symbolize an invading, destructive army destroying everything in its path.
  • Amos 7:1 – in the Greek Septuagint, Contemporary English Version
    • Amos 7:1 Thus has the Lord God shewed me; and, behold, a swarm of locusts coming from the east; and, behold, one caterpillar, king Gog.
  • Amos 7:1 – New King James,
    • Amos 7:1 Thus the Lord God showed me: Behold, He formed locust swarms at the beginning (sprouting) of the late crop; indeed it was the late crop after the king’s mowings.
  • The comparison of translations indicate the locusts have a king: King Gog (aka Agag).
  • The prophet is Amos

V. Locusts (Gog and Magog) of End Times in the book of Joel

  • What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten;
    What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten;
    And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten. Joel 1:4
  • Vision of the locusts in Joel chapter 1
  • The Day of the Lord (the phrase used for the seven year tribulation in scripture also called the Day of the Lord’s wrath) in Joel chapter 2
    • Compare with Isaiah 21
  • Phrases in Joel used in other scripture for end time events:
  • The prophet is Joel

VI. Gog is King of the Locust army.

  • The armies of Gog and Magog are listed as ten tribes/nations.
  • The armies of Psalm 83 are listed as ten tribes/nations
  • There are ten horns (powers) who give their power to the Antichrist in Revelation.
  • There are ten toes on Nebuchadezzar’s statue in Daniel in the last gentile kingdom of iron and clay.

VII. The Antichrist is a progression of influence and power:

  • He is the caterpillar in Amos 1
  • He is the little horn in Daniel
  • He is (one of the) head(s) of the beast/dragon in Revelation
  • Indwelt by Satan he becomes one with the beast, Satan
  • His career begins leading an army and ends as a Global Leader eventually becoming “The image of the beast”.
    • Jesus refuted Satan’s offer to fall down and worship him and Satan would give him all the kingdom’s of the world.
    • The Antichrist will take Satan up on that offer.
