Gog-Magog: Turkey and the Caucasus Form Alliance

Sometimes the news speaks for itself.

Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 contain the prophecy of a war involving several countries that will rise up against Israel in the last days.  The names used for the countries involved are the subject of controversy.  Some of the countries such as Persia are well known, but other countries such as Magog are not known.  There are a few references in ancient texts that give a general location, but it is difficult to directly relate these names to a modern country.

The Nations of Ezekiel 38-39 / Who Will Participate in the Battle?

Ezekiel 38:2-6:
Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
