Where Does Gog of Magog Rule From?
Not Russia (Magog). Ezekiel 38 defines Gog of Magog’s seat of power as Tubal
and Meshech. The Book of Jubilees locates these territories as West and Central
Europe. This would in modern terms define the Colonial Powers, Vatican, Germany,
Italy, etc. Now prophecy makes sense. (see Ch. 9 Map).
Why Is Russia Split Into 2 Continents?
Noah set this boundary in his division here in Jubilees. The River Tina which is the
modern Don(Tanais to Scythians) and Volga Rivers continues to divide Europe and
Asia. Europe was Japheth and Asia was Shem. Essentially, follow history and you
will find Russia bleeds into Shem’s territory from Japheth. To this day, the people
principally are from Japheth (78%) not Shem. (see Ch. 8 Commentary).
Why Is Borneo Divided Between 2 Countries?
Noah split the island in his setting of the border of Shem to the North and Ham to
the South defined by the volcanoes. (see Ch. 8 Commentary).
Did the name Africa derive from Abraham’s son Epher or Publius
Cornelius Scipio Africanus as some claim?
Neither are remotely accurately as Jubilees uses both Afra (East Side) and Aferag
(West side) to refer to the continent in the days of Moses long before either character
lived. Jubilees 8. (See Map) Neither are even similar in Hebrew either.
Is the Moon the Measure for the Start of the Day in the Bible?
No. The sun is the measure for the start of the day at sunrise. The moon comes in 10
days too soon on the year and is off 22 of 52 weeks of the year for the Sabbath or
week and day was first not night. Jub. 1:8 (Sun rules over Day and Night) 1:9 (Sun
appointed as the sign for days, sabbaths (weeks), months, years, etc.), Jub. 6:36-40
(moon disrupts the Biblical calendar as the wrong measure for days, sabbaths (weeks),
months and years). See our commentary on this as we offer abundant scripture from
the modern canon which concurs.
