30 Apr “The Mystical Gog and Magog Connection Between North Korea and Iran” by Breaking Israel News
“For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world, and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.” Deuteronomy 32:22
They have roused Me to jealousy with a no-god; they have provoked Me with their vanities; and I will rouse them to jealousy with a no-people; I will provoke them with a vile nation. For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world (She’ol), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains. Deuteronomy 32:22
Dov Bar Leib, an end-of-days blogger, explained the apparent conflation of North and South Korea to Breaking Israel News. “Rabbi Nachmani was hinting that God’s fire cited in the verse is a nuclear war that would begin between North and South Korea. North Korea will attack Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Those same nukes will be used by Iran to threaten Israel,” he clarified. “In the verses, the ‘no-god’ is the current global tendency towards atheism,” Bar Leib explained. “The ‘no-people’ are the Palestinians who are not a nation.” Bar Leib explained that Rabbi Nachmani’s reference to North Korea had its source in the Zohar, the foundational work of Jewish mysticism. He cited a section of the Zohar (VaEira 32a) which states that the nation of Islam would be given 1,300 years to rule in the land of Israel, 100 years for every year until Ishmael was circumcised. After that period, a nation “from the edge of the earth” would be aroused against Rome and wage war against it for three months. “The globe does not have an edge,” acknowledged Bar Leib. “But the international date line runs through North Korea. That line is in effect the dividing line on the globe, technically the beginning and the end.” The Zohar, Bar Leb notes, quotes a verse in Isaiah which describes this catastrophic war with the country at the edge of the world.
The sword of Hashem is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams; for Hashem hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. Isaiah 34:6
“Bozrah is a Shi’ite city in Iraq, technically controlled by Iran,” explained Bar Leib. Bozrah is described in the Zohar as aligned with the country at the edge of the world, which, according to Bar Leib, is North Korea. “This is the Biblical source for this unholy and unlikely connection between Iran, named as Bozrah, and North Korea, described as the edge of the earth. Edom, their common enemy, is the Western World.” An alliance between Iran and North Korea seems illogical, since the two nations have nothing in common, sharing neither a religion or a border. They seem to be united only in their hatred for the Western World, a commonality that has led them to cooperate on their intercontinental ballistic missile programs, and perhaps on their nuclear programs as well. “When the two come together, as described in the Zohar,” said Bar Leib, “It will be the final war of Gog and Magog, as described by Rabbi Nachmani.” Watch Rabbi Nachmani’s prediction (in Hebrew with English subtitles):
