Magog & the Wheel of the Giants
Psalms 12:6-7 "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."
1 Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."

Jeremiah 10:22: “Behold, the noise
of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of
the north country, to make the cities of Judah
desolate, and a den of dragons.”
Jeremiah 6:22: “Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.”
A people cometh? WHO are these PEOPLE?
Before this is answered, let’s read from the BOOK ... the book of Hosea.
“The word of the LORD that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel. The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea.
And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD. So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.
And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.
And she conceived again, and bare a daughter.
And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.
Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God. Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.”
The day of Jezreel is about … JUDGMENT and WARS!
This is where this message will begin … with wars!
History is replete with them.
God’s word [THE BIBLE] prophesies that the frequency, and even the severity, of wars will steadily increase to such an explosive level that it will engulf all the world’s nations at the end of the very age in which we live [which age marks the times of the Gentiles] [Luke 21:24].
In the Gospel according to Mark, chapter thirteen, verse eight, we have this: “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.” [Mark 13:8]
Indeed, we are here: The beginnings of sorrows is already upon us!
I. The Valley of Judgment & II. The Valley of Graves
There are two valleys reserved for judgment in the near future [also additionally one of them being specifically designated a burial ground].
The first of these two valleys is the valley of Jezreel.
The valley of Jezreel is also known as “the valley of Megiddon” with a city within this valley called “Megiddo”.
The first mention of this place in the Bible gives us the name of the place: “Megiddo”.
III. Two Different Valleys & IV. The Remnant of the Giants
There are yet three more gigantic wars coming to this earth [before the end of time].
All three of these wars are going to be fought for the purpose of ridding the earth of one very small nation.
This small nation … is the nation of Israel.
V. The Giants in Opposition, VI. The Wheel of the Giants, VII. The Burial Place for Gog
Recall what was said in the Bible [the record] concerning Goliath, a Philistine, a remnant of the giants.
This Goliath, was just a runt of a giant measuring only six cubits and a span in height [or 9’ 9” high]. This is found in First Samuel, chapter seventeen, verse four].
Now, where is the proof for all this?
Why is this judgment [and more] coming to the people of this earth?
Here is the problem: SIN.
Specifically here, it is the sin of coming together: Globalism
