ANTICHRIST’S LAST TREK
They enter Aiath; they pass through Migron; they store
supplies at Micmash. They go over the pass, and say, ‘We will
camp overnight at Geba.’ Ramah trembles; Gibeah of Saul
flees. Cry out, O Daughter of Gallim! Listen, O Laishah! Poor
Anathoth! Madmenah is in flight; the people of Gebim take
cover. This day they will halt at Nob; they will shake their fist
at the mount of the Daughter of Zion, at the hill of Jerusalem”
From the book, Thru the Bible With J. Vernon McGee, 46
Dr. McGee comments on the above passages: “This is a re-
markable section of prophecy. It gives geographical locations,
all of them north of Jerusalem, and it shows the route taken by
Assyria and of the future invader from the north… The invader
comes from the land of Magog (see Ezek. 38:39).
“Now notice the places mentioned: ‘Aiath’ is about fifteen
miles north of Jerusalem. ‘Migron’ is south of Aiath and is the
pass where Jonathan got a victory over the Philistines (see 1
Sam. 14). I understand that General Allenby secured a victory
over Turkey in the same place. ‘Geba’ and ‘Ramah’ are about
six miles north of Jerusalem. ‘Anathoth’ was about three miles
north of Jerusalem. This is the home of the prophet Jeremiah.
‘Laish’ is in the extreme north of Palestine, in the tribe of Dan.
‘Madmenah’ (dunghill) is a garbage dump north of Jerusalem.
‘Gebim’ is probably north of Jerusalem. The exact site is not
known. ‘Nob’ is the last place mentioned, and it is north of the
city and in sight of Jerusalem.
