CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE JEWISH BOY NATAN'S VISION CONCERNING THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG


On December 8th, 2015, I spent the afternoon watching and analyzing the YouTube video with English subtitles that shows a Jewish boy named Natan, who said that he went to heaven and saw Israel's future. This video message has been causing a good deal of speculation and discussion among believers right now, and many are discussing whether or not it could be true. Due to the boy's reference to Obama as Prince Gog of Magog, many of the people who already think that US President Obama is the biblical Antichrist find the boy's testimony to be plausible. However, I am still skeptical of this claim. In fact, there are many compelling reasons why I do not think Obama is Gog, but just another antichrist in a long line of antichrists that have led the world over the past 2000 years, and that have become especially prominent in the last 100 or so years.

First of all, President Obama is NOT universally popular, which the Antichrist is going to be. There is a huge faction in the USA and abroad that does not like Obama or his policies, and that alone is a major strike against him being the biblical Antichrist, who will be so well-liked that he will fool the world into thinking he is the Messiah that they have been looking for, and who will convince the world to worship him. Obama does not have that kind of following right now, and I doubt that he ever will. In fact, the only people who see Obama as any kind of Messiah are antichristians and Muslim sympathizers in the USA and abroad that follow the teachings of Malcom X, the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, and Mohammed, the false prophet of Allah, the Moon god of hate.

Also, although much of thew world believes that the Antichrist will be a Muslim's expected end-time Mahdi, I beg to differ. The Prince of Gog described in the prophetic Book of Ezekiel, Chapters 38 and 39 is going to be a leader of all of Magog (which includes Russia, and possibly China), as well as the leader of many Middle Eastern nations that hate Israel - and NOT just the tiny nation of Israel, but the United States as a type of Israel as well. I will shed more light on this belief of mine a bit later in this article.

Another reason I find the boy Natan's vision suspect is because he appears to have been heavily coached by the Rabbi sitting next to him in the video where he relates his vision. But first and foremost, the boy's testimony does not agree with the prophecies in the Bible about Israel in the Last Days. For this reason, I found the boy's recollections disturbing. For purposes of this discussion, I've linked to the video testimony on YouTube below so that you can watch it also - either before or after reading this article:

The problems that I had with the story that the boy named Natan was telling in this video testimony makes me believe that the Jewish boy did not receive an authentic Word from God through the Holy Spirit. Here are the major problems that I saw with it:

First of all, the Jewish boy who had this out of body or near death experience assumed that the Messiah the Jews are hoping for is alive on the Earth today, and will appear when it is time. This contradicts the truth that believers in Christ know about our Messiah, Who is not on the Earth today except in people's hearts through the Holy Spirit. Believers also know that Christ is coming again from Heaven when it is time - just as Scripture says.

Secondly, the being of light that greeted the Jewish boy when he entered what appeared to be Heaven or Abraham's Bosom did not identify himself. This is strange, since it would have been a perfect time to introduce himself as his real Messiah, or a representative of that Messiah, Who is the Light of the World.

Thirdly, while up in the heavenly places in his out-of-body vision, Natan was shown that the mitzvah or good deed of studying Torah was the lowest tier of virtue in Heaven. However, the fact that this point was made without any revelation that Yahshua is the Messiah, and the Word of God or the Torah made flesh is highly disturbing. This is because I firmly believe that the Jews who do not follow Yahshua or Jesus are not truly saved until they are converted to the truth, which is that Yahshua is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and no one comes to the Father God called Yahweh except through Yahshua or Jesus, as stated in John 14:6. Due to the massive importance of this teaching as regards salvation, God the Father surely would have wanted to convey this to the Jewish boy if he had been having an authentic visionary experience from God.

Also in regard to this Jewish boy's vision, Natan speaks of different levels of initiation or understanding in Heaven that are like tiers of greater and great knowledge, and that not everyone in Heaven understands everything the same way, or is at the same level of knowledge. This implies that there is a class system in Heaven, and this goes against Scripture, which tells us that - though now we see things darkly, as in a mirror, we will one day see God face to face, and understand all things. We are also told that we are all one body in Christ, and none of us is to be more highly regarded than another except in matters of guidance and authority. In this regard, Yahshua's Parables such as the Parable of the Talents and the Parable of the Minahs clearly indicate that He will choose leaders from among all of those who worship Him to rule with Christ during the Millennial Kingdom.

Connected to the King of the South
Finally, the boy identified Obama as Gog, when there is no way possible that Obama could be Prince Gog, the leader of Magog because he is not the King of the North, but the King of the South through his actions in aiding the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, where he was once depicted as a Pharaoh on mugs and t-shirts during his visit to Egypt early on in his Presidency. I believe this was surely a prophetic sign from God as to Obama's true identity - especially in light of his sympathetic actions toward Muslims, his upbringing in Muslim-controlled nations, and his early education in Muslim-controlled schools.

This is especially clear to me because, while very few people are fooled by Obama's pretense at being a Christian anymore, Putin is trying hard to convince and fool the world into thinking that - since he purportedly loves Israel and the Jews, and supports Orthodox Christianity (which, like Roman Catholicism, is not truly biblical Christianity) - that he could be the Savior that the Old-School Churches are seeking, as well as the Messiah of Israel that the Jews have been waiting for over the millenia.

This makes sense since Russia is situated to the far North of Israel, making Putin a perfect representative of the King of the North spoken of in the Bible's Book of Daniel. According to the Prophet Daniel, the King of the North will win a major war against the King of the South, who likely signifies Obama as one of the leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, aka NATO. According to the Prophesied War described in the Book of Ezekiel, Chapters 38 and 39, Russia or Magog will form an alliance with most of the Middle East outside of Israel. This is partly true of Russia, which is allied with Iran and Syria. Like Russia, Syria and Iran are also to the North of Israel.

According to Ezekiel 38 and 39, the Prince of Gog or King of the North will stage an invasion of Israel. However, when Scripture mentions Israel in future prophecies - this likely includes both branches of people within the nation called Israel. These branches are the Tribe or House of Judah or the Jews, and the House or Tribe of Ephraim, which is made up of former Gentiles who are now born-again believers in Yahshua or Jesus. Fascinatingly, since there are more Jews living in the USA than in Israel or any other nation right now, and there are also more devoted Christians in the USA than anywhere else, this also means that the USA can be viewed as a part of "Israel". In fact, the USA could well be the Israel being mentioned in Ezekiel 38 and 39 because, unlike the tiny Mid-East nation of Israel, which has a large wall separating Palestinian-held Gaza from Israel, the USA has huge stretches of largely unprotected and indefensible borders. This suggests that the land of unwalled villages mentioned in Ezekiel 38 is the nation called the United States, and NOT the nation called Israel:
~*~ Ezekiel 38:10-13 ~*~ “Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’”’
An important fact in regard to the prophetic scenario that I am painting here is that there are many conspiracy reports that President Obama may be acting in partnership with Russian President Putin behind the scenes to achieve their mutual desire, which is the destruction of the United States. If so, it is God Almighty - the God of all Israel - Who will step in and defend the remnant of godly people still living in the United States when this happens - confusing and destroying the invading armies with their own weapons on the mountains near to both coastlines of the United States, and also found in the north between Israel and Iraq - as stated in Ezekiel 39:1-6:
~*~ Ezekiel 39:1-6 ~*~ “And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; 2 and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. 3 Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. 4 You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken,” says the Lord God. 6 “And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.”
The only part of the Jewish boy Natan's testimony in the video that I know is true from other prophetic Scriptures in the Bible such as Psalm 89 is the fact that the tiny nation of Israel will be surrounded by enemy armies, and it will be attacked, potentially killing many Israelis. Personally, I think this could happen in tandem with a massive Russian war strike on the United States - possibly with Chinese and/or Radical Islamic assistance. The reason I suspect this is because the many nations surrounding Israel that hate the Jewish people, but are pretending to view ISIS and other Radical Islamic Terrorist groups as a threat, may seize the opportunity to attack Israel and the United States when their biggest and strongest western ally is incapable of assisting or aiding Israel in her defense. In fact, this would make sense of the inclusion of the Middle Eastern nations listed as working together with Magog  or the Russians to invade and plunder both the USA and Israel. If this is news to you, or you find this unbelievable, please read my articles that I've linked to below the closing of this article. They will help you to understand the sound reasoning behind my conclusions.

After analyzing the Jewish boy's video testimony with my own knowledge of the prophetic subject matter, and finding so much in it that doesn't agree with the yet future prophecies in Scripture regarding the War of Gog and Magog, the Psalm 89 war, and the battle between the Kings of the North and the South, I do not trust it, and I do not think anyone else should either. Due to the seriousness of this dubious vision's incorrect implications, I hope you will share my analysis of it with others so that they can analyze it in reference to Scripture as well, and form their own conclusions.
