Hi, Tovey

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, I believe that those burials, and the seven years of Israel "burning Gog's weapons for fuel" will happen BEFORE the Perousia. You seem to believe that seven years of tribulation begin with the Gog attack on Israel -- an attack which I have reasoned must come from Turkey; but which you have reasoned probably will come from Turkey in league with Russia.

The "good news" (if one can call it that) is that Turkey, Russia and Iran now seem to be working together:

Turkey does not have a good track record of keeping good relations with its neighbors; but this is a possible start. In order to fulfill Ezekiel 39, all Turkey has to do is work together with Iran long enough to attack Israel. Then,

Ezekiel 38:
[18] And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.
[19] For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
[20] So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
[21] And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: EVERY MAN'S SWORD SHALL BE AGAINST HIS BROTHER.

THAT seems to be "normal" behavior in the Middle East nowadays. I'm believe Daniel Pipes and many others here will concur on this. Ezekiel foresaw it, some 2700 years ago.

Concerning the tribulation, I foresee only 3½ years of such:

Revelation 12:
[3] And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
[4] And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
[5] And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
[6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there A THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND THREESCORE DAYS.

I MAY have seen something in astrology concerning this; and you may or may not approve of this: On Inauguration day, 2021, there is an ominous aspect between the sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus, a very rare occurence. Sun, Jupiter and Saturn will be in early Aquarius, and some might see this as the start of the "Age of Aquarius". Mars and Uranus will be square that conjunction. Curiously, aspects between Mars and Uranus are typical in the charts of violent revolutionaries; and Uranus and Saturn are co-rulers of Aquarius.

If ever there was an obvious indicator of the start of the reign of an "Antichrist", that will be the sign. 38½ months later, a total solar eclipse will be seen throughout North America; and 40 months after that (nearly 3½ years), another total solar eclipse will be seen throughout Europe and the Middle East. If seven years is to be taken as the entire REIGN of "The Beast", then he, she or it may be the 46th US President.

To me, that's interesting.

God bless and keep you and yours.

Michael :-)
