Q. If I may ask, what is your take on the Rabbis’ calling Bush “Gog”? Is their meaning political or spiritual? Do you think they concur with your belief that Gog is a supernatural being, or is their meaning only allegorical/political in that Bush is playing out a similar role? (I have never heard anyone else make that assertion about Gog.) If the former, are they implying that they believe Bush is possessed?
A. All I know is what I read in their letter. They didn’t come right out and call him Gog, but only addressed him by Gog’s title from Ezek. 38:1 “chief prince of Meshech and Tubal”. To me the letter means they believe that if he keeps going in the direction he’s headed, he could be the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy.
Whether Christian or Jewish, most people believe Gog is a human leader of the forces that attack Israel and is associated with Russia. I’m the only one I know of who thinks he’s a supernatural figure. I’ve explained this position in my article
If Pres. Bush is a born again believer, as I believe him to be, then he can’t be possessed. But all believers can be spiritually influenced by the enemy because we all retain our sin nature and that’s where the devil does his work.
