Gog And Magog: Who Are They And What Have They Got To Do With London?

Holmes and Watson, Gilbert and George, Reggie and Ronnie: London has spawned its fair share of famous duos before now. But how much do you know about London's original duo, Gog and Magog?

 

Who are Gog and Magog?

 

Good question. Their names first appear in the Old Testament's Book of Ezekiel, in which Gog is a landowner and Magog is the name of the land. Later on, in Revelation, they become one entity — a representation of the hostile nations of the world (in 1971 US president Ronald Reagan claimed "Gog must be Russia"). From hereon in, things get chaotic, "bewildering", even, as Brewer's Dictionary of London Phrase & Fable puts it; Gog and Magog crop up in all manner of folklore from all number of countries, religions and eras — as people, giants, countries, armies and various other entities. At one time or another, everyone wanted a piece of — or was at least scared witless by — Gog and Magog.

 
So what have they got to do with London?
 

One of the legends of Gog and Magog explicitly concerns London. As with most legends, there are variations on the theme, but a popular one goes that Gog and Magog (or confusingly Magog and Cornelius) were two monstrous giants, the product of the 33 wicked daughters of Roman emperor Diocletian and certain demons they'd been canoodling with. As he founded New Troy (which would become London), the heroic Brutus tamed the two colossi, forcing them to serve as guardians of the city by chaining them outside his palace, the site of which is now Guildhall. Of course, the tale is nonsense, but somehow the legend lived on, and the duo continued to be associated as the city's guardians. The effigies of 'Gogmagot the Albion' and 'Corineus the Britain' were recorded as appearing at the coronation of Elizabeth I in 1558 (where exactly, it isn't clear), while the giants were already making appearances at the Lord Mayor's Show by 1554.

 

 

While originals, made from papier mache, went up in smoke during the Great Fire of London, the replacements were gnawed away by mice.

 

  Where can I see Gog and Magog now?

 

From 1839 until the late 1920s, you could see Gog and Magog figures on the front of the grand Bennett's Clock Shop on Cheapside. After that, they went on permanent vacation to the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan, where they now appear as part of a glorified candy store (the same museum has the limo JFK was assassinated in — it sounds like quite a place).

 

 

Today your best bet in London is in Guildhall's Great Hall; Brewer's claims there have been statues of Gog and Magog here at least since the 15th century. The originals, made from papier mache, went up in smoke during the Great Fire of London, and though, in 1672 Lord Mayor's Pageantmaster Thomas Jordan hoped the replacement figures "never to be demolished by such dismal violence as happened to their predecessors,” they were gnawed away by mice within years. Sturdier oak replacements were carved by Richard Saunders and installed in 1708, but destroyed in the Blitz. Today's Gog and Magog — these ones crafted from lime wood — were fitted by sculptor David Elms in 1953, and loom nine feet tall. Here's a video of Elms making his finishing touches.

 

 

 
But these aren't the only Gog and Magog in Guildhall's possession. Just outside the Great Hall, on display behind a glass panel, reside a wicker Gog and Magog. Just like the statues in Guildhall, there have been various incarnations of these wicker men — the ones here now were donated by the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers in 2007, and have been paraded in every Lord Mayor's Show since (see main image). It's a strangely pagan spectacle to behold, especially in the middle of London. But these two mighty symbols of London have earned their status, if through sheer tenacity.

Mr. Dementia Raygun was the moron who said Russia has anything to do with Gog or Magog.

 

Good comment

 

 

GOG AND MAGOG ARE SYMBOLIC OF HOW THE CITY OF LONDON IS A SOVEREIGN SATANIC MASONIC CRIMINAL BANKSTER HEADQUARTERS. Gog and Magog, the ultimate enemies of God's people, to be destroyed in the final battle.[20] The author of the Book of Revelation tells how he sees in a vision Satan rallying Gog and Magog, "the nations in the four corners of the Earth," to a final battle with Christ and his saints:

 

When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the Earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. Ezekiel's Gog from Magog was a symbol of the evil darkness of the north and the powers hostile to God,[1] but in Revelation, Gog and Magog have no geographic location, and instead represent the nations of the world, banded together for the final assault on Christ and those who follow him.

Since you (most of this forum) hate Jews/Israel ... you should be proud that Russia will lead the soon coming invasion of Israel. 

However,  I would find an excuse not to join in the invasion, twere I invited.  The invaders will end up annihilated.

israel is loathsome for its exceptionalism/master race ideology and behavior, but that doesn't translate into hating jews.

 

However, you've been listening to too many fundy wacko evangelical Mossad/CIA agent preachers. God is neither a real estate agent or part of the IOF.

Those who are occupying Palestine and pretending to be Biblical Israel, are not Israel.

Therefore, some attack on TelAviville will not invoke Divine retribution on the attackers.

 

However, since the Talmuidists in Palestine, pretending to be Israel, have most Christian Israel European capitals targeted with nuclear bombs, Europe has to play along.  

This is one reason why Russia is being very restrained in dealing with the explosive situation.

 

Just as Talmudists pretended to be Judah & Israel 2000 years ago, so they pretend to be something other than themselves today.

After 70 A.D. destruction of Jerusalem, they had to disguise themselves.

They became Romans and then Christians, and took over most of Rome and the Roman Church.

Since then, the Vatican has been the main headquarters for Gog, all nicely dressed up as a Christian;

Whatever "Gog/Magog" parade lunacy happens in London has absolutely nothing
to do with Biblical Gog/Magog. Gog is a man, the prince of Magog. [Ezekiel 38:2]
who gathers the hordes of the earth to invade and destroy the "camp of the saints"
[Revelation 20:7-9], the last remnants of God's Aryan European Christ-bearing people.

The antichrist Edomite-jews who maliciously occupy God's ancient holy land are Gog/Magog's allies who think they are secure on the coast. Tel Aviv is on the coast.

Per Ezekiel 39:6, like Gog/Magog, Gog's ally on the coast will likewise be destroyed by fire from heaven.

Btw... Tel Aviv is the sodomite capital of the Middle East. They just had a huge sodomite parade last week. They will have a sodomite parade in Jerusalem in August.

I shouldn't have to remind you that the original Sodom was destroyed by fire from heaven.

Again... that has NOTHING to do with the Biblical Gog/Magog.
In the Bible, Gog is a man, the prince of the land of Magog.

Revelation 20.7 is a thousand years away.




Rev 20's symbolic 1000 years reigning with Christ
was Aryan Christendom's European golden church age.

Antichirst Edomite-jews are satan [ie, adversaries]
symbolically released from prison.

Edomite-jew-bolsheviks destroyed the Third Rome
when they murdered the last Tsar, 70 years before
the Third Rome's 1000 year anniversary.

Hitler wanted to create a 1000 year Christian Reich.
But Aryan Christendom proved itself unworthy of Hitler
when it allied with antichrist Edomite-jew-bolsheviks
to destroy Hitler.

Putin might have created a 1000 year kingdom. Instead,
he became the Edomite-jew-bolshevik's Khazar king, Gog.

Since the evil antichrist Edomite-jews and their demented
cultural marxist useful idiots have taken over the planet,
Aryan Christendom has waned and faithful Aryan Christians
have become remnants in their own lands. This is exactly
what the situation is in both Ezekiel 38/39 and Rev 20 when
Gog/Magog's global hordes are unleashed to invade the lands
of [former] Aryan Christendom to destroy what little is left
of the faithful Aryan Christian remnant, "camp of the saints."

I'd rather discuss the irony about Putin.

He might have created another 1000 year Aryan Christian kingdom.
But instead, he allied with evil antichrist Edomite-jew-bolsheviks.
Instead of being the hero, he became the villain in the passion play
by becoming the antichrist Edomite-jews' Protocols Khazar king = Gog.

Meanwhile, Republicans have agreed to support an immigration bill that will [again]
give amnesty to millions of non-white illegal aliens. Ryan says Trump will support
this abominable Gog/Magog law.

Gog is the kingdom of the South,
Magog is the kingdom of the North.

Prince Gog (aka Rosh or Hashem?) commanding coalition forces of Magog, 200 thousand-thousand strong, (that's like 200M) going up against 'an army of Christ".

Now! Magog...what is it? Scripture gives (after a whole lot 'historical' deliberation) reference to Moscow and Asia. So, again....a unified army of Russ-Asia going up against an army of Christians. Here is the flip-side....The God commends an army of Magog to form and attack an army of His SON!!! Go figure?! Well? God is pissed about the ways of Christianity and intends to punish them dearly! Europe is destroyed but army of Christ makes it out Okay. And few months later there is another battle - Magog vs. Christians at which point Christ Himself returns and destroys an army of Magog....in other words....Son of God vs God the Father battle in which Son's the victor!!!
