After 175 years of the Christadelphians telling us that "Gog" of Ezekiel chapter 38 is Russia invading Israel prior to the return of Christ in our own times, we read this in Arutz Sheva Israeli new website this morning:
"Russian military officials were to hold talks with their Israeli counterparts in Tel Aviv on Tuesday after the countries' leaders agreed to establish a mechanism to avoid accidental clashes in Syria. Israel's military confirmed the two-day meeting on "regional coordination," which comes after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin held talks last month related to Syria. The two agreed on a mechanism to avoid "misunderstandings" and clashes in Syrian airspace between the two militaries' jets. Tuesday's talks were to include Russian Deputy Chief of Staff Nikolai Bogdanovsky and his Israeli counterpart Yair Golan."
Once again the Christadelphians have been shown to be wrong about Bible prophecy, just as they are wrong about everything. Russia is not going to invade Israel because they know that if they do they will be immediately nuked by Israel, France, Britain, the United States and Saudi Arabia using the nuclear weapons they purchased from Pakistan. The Saudis won't want the Russians grabbing their oil.
The Christadelphians can wait a thousand years and Russia will NEVER invade Israel. But even a thousand years from now the Christadelphians will still be telling people that Russia is about to invade Israel and that this will bring about the return of Christ in their lifetimes.
Ezekiel was wrong about Tyre being conquered and destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, wrong about Egypt being laid waste, wrong about Israel dwelling safely in our times and wrong about everything else that he predicted. He will be wrong about Gog and Magog.
Christadelphians (like me thirty years ago) who lecture on this subject are suffering from the delusion of apophenia. There is no evidence that the Bible can predict the future.
