Question: It is written in The Book of Zohar that Gog will come from the north. Therefore, according to Christian tradition, it is believed that the last war between the forces of darkness and light will most likely take place in the north, near Mount Megido. From the name of this mountain came the word “Armageddon” (Har-Megido).
“Har” means mountain, Megido is a place 10 kilometers from Afula. It is called the Lowlands of Israel, and for thousands of years most battles have been fought there.
Why will the power of Gog come from the north?
Answer: Because a fearsome force always comes from the north. North is that part that does not like the world, always bullies, always manifests itself as Gvurot (harsh forces).
Question: How will humanity know that the war of Gog and Magog has begun?
Answer: I think that they will not know. I hope that all this will happen on a spiritual level and no physical actions will be required. We will only see how everything calms down and returns to normal with the exception, perhaps, of a few instances that an ordinary person will not notice. I really count on that.
At least, according to Kabbalah, we strive to shift this from military actions, suffering, and death, to man resolving it within himself and with others.
