Gog and Magog: At War with Mashiach

The birthpangs of Mashiach occur at the end of the days of olam hazeh when the new experience will begin, and Gog and Magog will be in the time of the world of Mashiach when Mashiach will be present and Gog and Magog will come against him for war.

At the time of the king Mashiach, before his kingship, there will be the war of Gog and Magog, where all the nations will come up against him for war, until Mashiach defeats them all and then there will be one king in the world – the king Mashiach.

In the world to come man will not be material and physical as he is in this world, instead man will be on the level of the angels who are separate from physicality.

From the Maharal of Prague, Netzach Yisrael

  1. I read paras must fall to edom before mashiach comes . Is edom refined in the end ie pig is kosher ? Or as in the ramchals works mashiach ben yosef wears a purple coat of all the martyrs to edom in history and treads them like grapes in the winepress . I see chassiduses outlook very rosey about mashiach compared to how the gra and ramchal talk about edom , or even rashbi who many times equates amalak / edom in the same breath . I personally like most waiver back and forth between chassiduse view and the gra / ramchals approach . For one chassidus only disscusses a ben david . ramchal / gra dilienate two meshichim . A final point lazer brody shlita says gog and magog is about our emunah
