Put, Cush and Libya
I’ve often wondered how Libya ends up being aligned for an invasion of Israel from the North. They are just coming out of a coup d’ etat and it just doesn’t seem reasonable for a country with recent political instability to be sending troops. My assumptions were wrong – the following article shows how “Put” in this verse
The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.
(Ezekiel 38:1-6 ESV)
is certainly with those that think to invade the land of God’s chosen people.
The answer – Put is already there via the Liwa al-Ummah.
