Bastethotep opines that talking about oneself in the third person is rarely a good sign.
Also, from the article:
Ancient Ethiopia is the land south of Egypt known as modern-day Sudan
Actually, no, Aithopia (“Land of Burnt Faces”, in reference to the dark skin) was the Greek word for the lands inhabited by dark-skinned peoples. This did indeed include modern Sudan, but also the north of modern Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa (e.g. the Kingdom of Aksum), the Sahara (the Berber expansion in late antiquity and the early Islamic period would later displace these populations to the south), the southernmost tradepost of Kerne on an island along the central portions of modern Morocco (the Carthagians did make it further south, at least to the mouths of the Senegal and Niger), and also all the entire Terra Incognita to the South - basically, all of Africa except the coastal regions and the riverine oasis of Egypt (Africa, on the other hand, was just the Roman province that covered the former territory of Carthage, a long stretch of the coastal band extending from eastern Algeria to most of modern Lybia, bordering the Cyrenaica. North Africa, back then, was called Lybia.) If this was to refer to the modern nation of Sudan, surely, the prophecy would have spoken of Nubia; while the correlation is not perfect - historically, Nubia was further north, starting at the first Cataract at Assuan in the south of modern Egypt and the Fifth Cataract in central Sudan -, it certainly would have been more specific (especially since South Sudan was not part of the historical region of Nubia, although it was part of the Meroitic empire that ruled these lands at the time).
Most Bible commentators interpret “Magog” as Russia, as it is directly north of Israel.
While Magog is indeed generally thought to refer to the fearesome Scythian and Sarmatian horse nomads of the Eurasian steppes north of the Caucasus, there’s quite a lot of stuff between Israel and Russia. And the massive difference in longitudinal extend between Russia and Israel makes this phrasing look even more off.
The Cimmerians (Gomer) were Iranic nomads related to but displaced by the Scythians who migrated in the eight Century BC southwards from the Caspian-Pontic steppes, with the bulk conquering Central Anatolia, launching attacks against their neighbours including Tabal/Tubal to the Southeast, and another section invading Urartu (the Armenian Highlands, modern northern Iraq, Biblical Ararat) and the Assyrian Empire. The Persians were also Iranic nomads who had populated the Persis - a region in Northwestern Iran, not to be confused with wider Persia – since the ninth Century BC who, in alliance with their northern neighbours the Medes (more Iranic nomads) would eventually be a major factor in the downfall of the Assyrian Empire and who under the Achaeminids would erect the greatest empire the world had ever seen up to this point. These incursions from beyond the towering mountains of the Caucasus - that well may have seemed as Creation’s northern border walls of the (Civilised) World to the inhabitants of the Fertile Crescent - would certainly have fueled fears of further invasions - and who knows what may lurk there in this deep Morth, especially given that even the fearsome Cimmerians claim to have been forced out of their homelands by another people that surely must be more mighty and terrible still? And now take these threads, in the North-Western, the Northern and the North-Eastern end of their known world, and imagine them allying with the peoples at the other two frontiers of Terra Incognita, the coast beyond Egypt to the East and the lands across the Red Sea to the South and South-East, and you have a great apocalyptic vision of being beset by the unknown barabarians from all directions.
Note that none of these nations discussed are particularly close to Israel, whether modern or ancient. Now, Comfort quietly adds Egypt to his list, but it is not listed in the Bible passage, and Comfort does nothing to explain this addition. And note that other Levantine nations, modern or ancient, are conspiciously absent despite both modern and ancient Egypt not getting along well with its neighbours. Further, Comfort links this to Islam, which again ignores the neglect of the other Middle Eastern nations, and further makes Russia a strange inclusion, being a majority and ostentatiously Christian country (and, even knowing that this is recycled from the Cold War… the Soviet Union was directed towards atheism, making it even less Islamic than Putin’s Russia)…
