Some people think Gog & Magog refers to Russia, and that Russia will grow stronger. I suspect the context of prophecy may indicate it is people closer to the north instead of further; leaving Russia's significance in question. Will we see Russia rise as a mighty power again, or will it come to serve the NWO, with the main parties rising more in the Middle East? Yehovah only knows, and time only will tell.
