Editor’s Note: Recently  the Jerusalem  Channel posted a video entitled, “How  Close Are We to the  Ezekiel War?” by founder Christine Darg. We have also received the following article along the same lines by a Messianic believer in Jerusalem. The following are thoughts and opinions solely from Mr. Honorof.

Messianic Body in Israel Prepare for War!

Gog Magog Ezekiel 38 – 39 War may happen very soon!

By Richard Aaron Honorof


The God of Israel will not allow War to come against

His land of Israel and to His people except by His perfect will

and also in His perfect timing.

I believe we are now very close to War, both Isaiah 17:1-14

and also the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog Magog War.


Amazingly, never before in world history have all the

nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39 now aligned together,

on hold, perhaps waiting for this War to begin against Israel.

[Watch JD Farag, Middle East Prophesy Update, 1/6/ 2019]

Only God could have caused this, according to His Word.


With our Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu having

taken over the Defense Ministry of the Israeli Government,

he has now placed himself in the position to make all the

military decisions.  Has God kept Benjamin Netanyahu

in the Prime Minister’s position for such a time as this, for

a prophetic purpose to be fulfilled while he is still in office?

He may or may not win in this next election on April 9th.


The Iranian Government is extremely angry with Israel.

For many Sunni Arab nations, especially Saudi Arabia and

Egypt, Jordan, Oman and others have been negotiating with

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, both regarding forming

a Palestinian State on Israeli soil, and also joining against Iran.

This has also shamed and disgraced Iran before many of

their Arab neighbors.  Iran has vowed to destroy Israel.


If Netanyahu believes that Iran is ready to launch their

nuclear missiles at Israel even prior to the elections, he will

be forced to make a pre-emptive strike to take out the

Iranian nuclear facilities.  However, I sense the following

could happen before the elections.  If Netanyahu knows for

sure that he will not win the next elections, which is very

possible now, then his last action as Israel’s Prime Minister

may be to suddenly attack Iran and take out all the Iranian

nuclear facilities for obvious reasons, and just before elections.

This would stop the elections, and immediately bring Israel

into a major War.  And everything would then change, not

only in Israel but also across the whole world political scene.

Attacking Iran would very quickly bring Russia into action,

i.e. the Ezekiel 38- 39 Gog Magog War.


But if Netanyahu wins the election then President Trump

will announce his Peace Plan for Israel, to divide Jerusalem

and form a Palestinian State on Israeli soil.  This will mean

Arab Muslims will greatly accelerate their deadly attacks to

destroy both Israel and God’s Jewish people.  That will make

both Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump traitors

to Israel.  Also is this the peace plan the Bible calls the

covenant of death, which God annuls?  Isaiah 28:15, 18


But if the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog Magog War comes first

before the elections, with God using Benjamin Netanyahu

for such a time as this, then this will have derailed Trump’s

Peace Plan for Israel, setting the stage for a total shift in Israel,

and move things into the next phase in the One World

Government’s agendas for coming world domination,

before the Lord returns.


God alone is the One who will decide which way things go!


In Jeremiah 49:34-38, the LORD says that He will break

the bow of Elam (Iran’s nuclear weapons), and also send

the sword after Elam.  Prime Minister Netanyahu sent jets

to do this in 2014, and was stopped.  Will he attempt this

again soon, and this time succeed?


[Arutz Sheva 7 Israel National News, January 3, 2015,

by Mark Langfan … ‘Obama Threatened to Shoot Down

I.A.F. Iran Strike’  The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an

had cited Kawaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President

Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s

nuclear facilities in 2014, by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets

before they could reach their targets in Iran.  Following Obama’s

threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly

forced to abort the planned Iran attack.]


For as long as I can remember our Prime Minister’s primary

concern has always been to totally stop Iran’s nuclear program.

But he had also confidently believed that his big brother, the U.S.

Government’s military power, with President Trump backing him,

would also be there to help him, to protect him and Israel.

But President Trump pulled out his U. S. military forces from

Syria.  Early elections for the new Israeli Government are now

scheduled for April 9.  Are we about to witness some drastic

changes here in Israel?


Will Israel suddenly be forced, with no other nation to help

them, to single handedly take out the Iran nuclear facilities?

Will Damascus suddenly be totally wiped out?  (Isaiah 17:1)

Will the United States be one of those ‘young lions’ who stands

by, just looking on, and saying to Gog, of the land of Magog,

“have you come … to take booty … to take great plunder?”

Ezekiel 38:13


Here is the sign to watch for …

We may possibly know ahead of time if this War is now,

if Trump’s Administration suddenly becomes totally

immobilized and unable to help their Middle East ally, Israel.


It’s been over 70 years since Israel became a nation.

Is this the time for God to begin pouring out His Holy Spirit

in Israel?  God said that He will bring us back to the land,

and then pour out His Spirit on us.  Ezekiel 36:24, 27


If the Ezekiel 38–39 Gog Magog War comes suddenly

to Israel, the new immediate focus at the end of this War

will shift from Islam to the Orthodox religious Jews, who will

then quickly have come into great political power, and begin

putting up their house on Mount Zion hill.  For God will have

sovereignly destroyed both Russia’s and also all the Islamic

armies coming against Israel from heaven in this War.


The whole world, especially all the Muslims will witness

Allah defeated by the God of Israel.  The 70 Arab Christian

Congregatons in Israel who are now mostly into replacement

theology, will have seen the God of Israel both save His Israeli

Jewish people and also save them, and their attitudes will change.

And also the Muslim agendas will no longer carry their political

power in Israel.  Multitudes of Muslims will quickly leave Allah

and Islam and come to the God of the Christians, to Jesus.  And

the Muslim harvest of souls in Israel will overnight be tremendous.


Why is Iran, the first nation mentioned coming with Gog

in this War, but coming just as foot soldiers?  Ezekiel 38:5

For if Iran still had nuclear power they would have annihilated

Israel.  Is this because Israel had launched a pre-emptive strike,

and had suddently taken out all of Iran’s nuclear power?


If Israel first takes out the Iran’s nuclear facilities, then

because of the war covenant pacts between Russia and Iran,

any attack on Iran would cause this war, and be the hooks in

the jaws of Gog (38:4) which God would use as the catalyst

to bring about this Bible prophesied Ezekiel 38-39 War,

especially in God’s perfect will and God’s perfect timing.


Are nuclear weapons used in this War?  Perhaps Isaiah 17:1,

Damascus being a ruinous heap may be a nuclear explosion?


If a military War, such as the Ezekiel 38, 39 Gog Magog War

happens suddenly, Scriptures also shows that no other nation

will be there to help Israel.  When God brings Israel to Himself

by sovereignly winning this War and saving His Israeli Jewish

peoples and also Israeli Arabs, then this will show the Israeli

Jews that their God has always been there for them, and that

He has never left them.  So are things about to change very

drastically both here in Israel and also in the United States?

I believe so, but only time will tell.  Perhaps we will know

the answer, and very soon.


The Ezekiel 38-39 enemy nations need the spoils of Israel,

especially the vast oil and vast gas reserves only recently

discovered in Israel.  When will this War happen?  Iran is

the chief nation who continually vows to totally annihilate

Israel and all the Jews.  In their demonic pride for conquest,

what day might they possibly choose to attack to annihilate

the Jews?  Is it before Israel’s new Government elections?


Let’s look into the Bible for the historical clues …


The Citadel of Shushan in Persia (Iran), around 480 B.C.


Ester 3:8  Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain

people scattered & dispersed among the people in all the provinces

of your kingdom; their laws are different from all other people’s,

and they do not keep the king’s laws.  Therefore it is not fitting for

the king to let them remain.  3:9  If it pleases the king, let a decree

be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand

talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring

it into the king’s treasuries.”  3:10  So the king took his signet ring

from his hand and gave it to Haman, the son of Hammedatha the

Agagite, the enemy of the Jews. 3:11  And the king said to Haman,

“The money and the people are given to you, to do with them as

seems good to you.” 3:12  Then the king’s scribes were called

on the thirteenth day of the first month, and a decree was written

according to all that Haman commanded, to the king’s satraps, to

the governors who were over each province, to the officials of

all people, to every province according to its script, and to every

people in their language.  In the name of King Ahasuerus it was

written, and sealed with the king’s signet ring. 3:13  And the letters

were sent by couriers into all the king’s provinces, to destroy,

to kill, and to annihilate all the Jews, both young and old, little

children and women, in one day, on the thirteenth day of the

twelfth month, which is the month of Adar, and to plunder their

possessions.  3:14  A copy of the document was to be issued as law

in every province, being published for all people, that they should

be ready for that day (13th of Adar).


The 13th day of Adar falls this year on March 20th, 2019.


Ezekiel 38:2  “Son of man, set your face against Gog,

of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech,

and Tubal, and prophesy against him,  38:3  and say,

‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you,

O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 38:4

I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and

lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen,

all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers

and shields, all of them handling swords.  38:5  Persia

(first nation mentioned), Ethiopia, and Libya are with

them, all of them with shield and helmet;” ’ ”


How do we know this War will not be the Psalm 83 War?

Because some of the Arab nations mentioned in Psalm 83,

especially Saudi Arabia are now in relationship with Israel,

encouraging Israel to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities.

But some of the other nations or peoples listed in Psalm 83

may join Russia and Iran in this Ezekiel 38-39 War.

Remember Ezekiel 38:6 says many people will also come

with those nations mentioned.


Isaiah 17:4 says that after this War Israel will grow lean.

Isaiah 17:7 says in that day a man will look to his Maker,

and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.

Also Ezekiel 39:9 tells us that after this War there will be

seven years of burning weapons, possibly for fuel.  Could

this begin the time of Daniel’s 70th Week, the last 7 years

before Yeshua returns & sets up His Millennial Kingdom?


Mike Evans, a U. S. Messianic minister gave

Benjamin Netanyahu a prophetic word from the Lord back

in 1982 …  “It was more than thirty years ago that I first met

Benjamin Netanyahu.  On the day we met, I anointed him with

oil and prophesied that he would twice be Prime Minister

of Israel, and that the second time would be during Israel’s

greatest crisis.  Benjamin wasn’t involved in politics at all then.

I went to Menachem Begin (who was the Prime Minister)

the next day and asked him to find a place for Benjamin

in his government, and he did.  God was working to prepare

his son to be the man who would lead the nation of Israel

in its moment of greatest crisis and danger.”


Another prophetic word was given to Benjamin Netanyahu

by Wendy Alec in April of 2008, “Not one term, not two terms,

but three terms you shall see.  And then the time of the end!”


When the God of Israel sovereignly wins this War,

then the unsaved secular Israeli Jews, in gratitude to God for

saving their lives, will do something, I believe, which they have

never done before, they will give their support to the Israeli

Orthodox religious Jews, who will very quickly gain great

political power in Israel.  With this newly gained political

power, I believe that the Israeli religious Jews will then

strongly persecute those Jews in the over 300 Congregations

and also the Christian Chuches in Israel whom they think

believe in other gods, specifically in Yeshua.  The sad fact

is that it is they, the Orthodox religious Jews, who have left

the Word of God of the Tanakh, and have followed a non

biblical Oral Law.  Thus they cannot see, or perhaps even

refuse to see Yeshua as their Messiah in the Holy Scriptures.


And you must also know the Israeli Orthodox religious

Jews already know exactly where every public Messianic

Congregation and Christian Church is located in Israel.


It clearly says that at the end of this Ezekiel 38-39 War,

in Ezekiel 39:25-28 and 39:29, that two major events will

then happen.  First the Jewish people will be coming home.

For the great world Aliyah will be taking place.  Jews will

suddenly be fleeing from both the terrible persecutions that

will be coming against them especially in America, but also

from God’s Judgment which will have begun in America.

They will be fleeing without their identity papers; for they

were not prepared to suddenly leave United States and come

to Israel.  For the hunters had been released.  (Jeremiah 16:16)


Also great Revival by God’s Holy Spirit will have begun

in Jerusalem and spread throughout Israel, and then out to

the nations, bringing in the last Great World Revival and

the Great World Harvest of souls.  see Ezekiel 39:29


With possible persecutions by religious Jews in Israel,

I believe that we may also soon see the following scenario:

This will bring the great Outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit

of Love, causing God’s Greatest World Revival, with the

Salvation of multitudes of souls, with great signs, wonders,

and miracles.  This mighty move of God’s Love will begin

from Jerusalem over the ben Hinnom Valley and perhaps also

in other places in Israel, such as in the Galilee.  This Revival

may last for a couple of years, going out to the whole world.


The soon to be appointed Sanhedrin’s Aaronic priesthood

will have appointed and be offering animal sacrifices in their

Temple on Mount Moriah (Zion’s) hill.  However they do not

know who are sons of Zadok, the only Aaronic priests that

God allows to do animal blood sacrifices.  Ezekiel 44:15,16


This Zadokite blood was carried in Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice!


Later the anti-Christ will take over by mid Tribulation time.

(Daniel 9:27)  He will stop all animal sacrifices being done

by the Aaronic priests in the Temple, and will declare himself

to be God.  He will also have set up ‘abomination of desolation’

in the Jerusalem Temple. (Matthew 24:15-22, Mark 13:14-20)


     Messianic believers in Israel, now is the time to call

for a season of urgent prayer and fasting!  To be Repenting

for both our sins and also for the many sins being done here

in Israel.  And also to be crying out to God for His Mercy

and for Revival to come to Israel.  Joel 2:12-17, Psalm 102:13


Messianic and Church pastors, do you now have many

small groups and home groups, active and functioning with

plenty of basic survival materials, such as food and water,

gas masks for possible biological or chemical warfare; also

with things necessary for growth and discipleship.  Quantities

of bibles and other evangelistic materials for the coming great

Israeli and world harvest of souls, both for the unsaved Jews

and Arabs, and also for all the many peoples from the nations.


Do your sheep really know what to do when War comes?


Do your sheep also know what to do during what follows,

the coming times of serious religious Jewish persecutions,

after the Israeli Orthodox Jews gain great political power?


Ezekiel 33:1  Again the word of the LORD came to me,

saying,  33:2  “Son of man, speak to the children of your

people, and say to them, ‘When I bring the sword upon

a land, and the people of the land take a man from their

territory and make him their watchman,  33:3  when he sees

the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the shofar and

warns the people,  33:4  then whoever hears the sound of

the shofar and does not take warning, if the sword comes

and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.

33:5  He heard the sound of the shofar, but did not take

warning; his blood shall be upon himself.  But he who takes

warning will save his life.  33:6  But if the watchman sees

the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, and the

people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any

person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’

33:7  So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman

for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word

from My mouth and warn them for Me.”


Amos 3:7  Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless

He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.



Joel 2:32 (and Romans 10:13)

“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name

of the Lord (Yeshua) shall be saved.  For in Mount Zion

and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the LORD

has said, among the remnant whom the LORD calls.”


1 John 4:8, 16  God is Love!


John 3:16  “For God so loved the world that He gave

His only begotten Son (Yeshua) that whoever believes

in Him should not perish but have Everlasting Life.  3:17

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn

the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

3:18  He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he

who does not believe is condemned already, because he has

not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
