Like Asshur, modern Elam will meet with end-time destruction, and become a nation the lost tribes of the Israelite northern kingdom exodus from. Isaiah 22’s dual prophecy concerning Assyria’s attack on Jerusalem, prophesying Satan’s end-time imprisonment into the abyss, foretold a day when Elam will be trodden down. Elam faced destruction in Nebuchadnezzar’s time and will again face destruction in the end times, in the time of “trouble,” “Jacob’s trouble”: the time of the Second Exodus. One deduces Elam and Asshur will be included in the great end-time Persian alliance that will partake in the counterfeit Armageddon war that occurs before the midpoint of the last seven years, the war Antichrist rides to power on as the counterfeit messiah.
Meshech and Tubal were tallied next in Ezekiel 32 as part of the Terrible Ones. They too were slain as kings of terror of powerful nations, kings accompanied by their multitudes that Babylon destroyed. Oddly though, Meshech, Tubal and perhaps their multitudes were not delivered to the pit prison to be with their brethren, the mighty/gibbowr warriors of old, even though “they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.”
It follows that something more is attributed to Meshech and Tubal. Know that Meshech and Tubal were words or names from foreign origins, even though both were listed sons of Japheth in the table of nations. Meshech established a nation that settled in the north; it is generally associated in Scripture with Tubal, Magog, and Moschi, according to Strong’s Dictionary. The latter was a nation that dwelled in the land bordering Armenia and Colchis. Tubal was in eastern Asia Minor.
What is curious regarding Meshech and Tubal is that these kings and nations were connected to Gog and Magog in the end-time counterfeit Armageddon war, although Gog does not surface in the table of nations. “Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.”
