Ezekiel 38:2-3 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal…”
The Bible and ancient, secular historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See attached post for background information.
Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.
Ezekiel instructs the invasion comes from the north against the mountains of Israel. The largest peaks and mountains in Israel are located in the Golan Heights.
June 9, 2017: The Russian Ministry of Defense, Russian TV and media sources, along with embedded journalists have confirmed Russia and Shia Muslim allies have reached the Jordanian Border in the southern tip of Syria. Multiple sources have also confirmed Russia and its allies have reached the Iraqi border in south, central Syria.
Russia is allied with forces from the Assad regime of Syria, the terrorist group Hezbollah from Lebanon, and Iranian forces. Russia’s allies in Syria are Shia Muslims.
Russia and its Shia Muslim allies are filling the void left by defeated Sunni ISIS and defeated Sunni Al Qaeda/Al Nusra in Syria.
The staging for the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39 appears to be drawing closer. Initially, Vladimir Putin had indicated there would be no boots on the ground in Syria. Russian armed forces initially came into northern Syria in late 2015. A year and a half later in June 2017, Russia continues its march south through the country of Syria. By reaching the southern tip of Syria, Russia is now about 75-100 miles east of the Golan Heights in Israel.

We are getting closer to crunch time. A point of consideration to Russia and their allies, just know the prophet Ezekiel had a few words for all to read. God spoke through Ezekiel and stated the following among many other items.
Ezekiel 38:19 For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare, on that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.
Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.
Ezekiel 38:22 “With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.”
Ezekiel 39:6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD. -Lord God
So…earthquake, war, civil war within troops, disease, more bloodshed, rain, flooding rains, severe thunderstorms with lightning and hail, fire, and sulfur, and more fire on the land of Magog…
Something to think about. It says what it says.
