What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
38 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 a“Son of man, bset your face against cGog, of the land of dMagog, 1the prince of Rosh, eMeshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4 fI will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and glead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, hall splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 5 Persia, 2Ethiopia, and 3Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 iGomer and all its troops; the house of jTogarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.
7 k“Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. 8 lAfter many days myou will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword nand gathered from many people on othe mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them pdwell safely. 9 You will ascend, coming qlike a storm, covering the rland like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
10 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of sunwalled villages; I will tgo to a peaceful people, uwho dwell 4safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, vand against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 wSheba, xDedan, the merchants yof Tarshish, and all ztheir young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ’
14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: a“On that day when My people Israel bdwell safely, will you not know it? 15 cThen you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. 16 You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may dknow Me, when I am ehallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” 17 Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?
18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. 19 For fin My jealousy gand in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: h‘Surely in that day there shall be a great 5earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that ithe fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. jThe mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21 I will kcall for la sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. m“Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 And I will nbring him to judgment with opestilence and bloodshed; pI will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, qgreat hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus I will magnify Myself and rsanctify Myself, sand I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’
