Yes, I believe in the armies of gog and magog... because the Bible refers to them. I do not know in what manner the Muslims believe.
Gog and Magog. We need not be too inquisitive as to what particular powers are meant by these names, since the army was gathered from all parts of the world. These names are found in other parts of scripture. Magog we read of in Gen. 10:2. He was one of the sons of Japheth, and peopled the country called Syria, from which his descendants spread into many other parts. Of Gog and Magog together we only read in Eze. 38:2, a prophecy whence this in Revelation borrows many of its images. 5. We have the march and military disposition of this formidable army (v. 9.): They went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city, that is, the spiritual Jerusalem, in which the most precious interests of the people of God are lodged, and therefore to them a beloved city. The army of the saints is described as drawn forth out of the city, and lying under the walls of it, to defend it; they were encamped about Jerusalem: but the army of the enemy was so much superior to that of the church that they compassed them and their city about. 6. You have an account of the battle, and the issue of this war: Fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured the enemy. Thus the ruin of Gog and Magog is foretold (Eze. 38:22), I will rain upon him and upon his bands an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, and fire and brimstone. God would, in an extraordinary and more immediate manner, fight this last and decisive battle for his people, that the victory might be complete and the glory redound to himself. 7. The doom and punishment of the grand enemy, the devil: he is now cast into hell, with his two great officers, the beast and the false prophet, tyranny and idolatry, and that not for any term of time, but to be there tormented night and day, for ever and ever.
"Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him
I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the Lord.
and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth--Gog and Magog--to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.Source(s): the Bible the Matthew Henry Commentary

No, Gog and Magog are mentioned in several places in the Christian Bible, but the description you give does not fit the persons/places represented by Gog and Magog in the Christian belief.

I'm a christian and I've never heard of gog and magog.
The only beings Christians believe in concerning doomsday (to my knowledge) are God, Satan, and angels. Even then, none of them are believed to visibly or physically appear any time before doomsday; only after the rapture.
The book of Revelation in the Bible pretty much describes Christians' beliefs about doomsday, if you want more info.

You've been playing too many video games and are getting fantasy confused with reality. In fantasy, there are gog, magog and gods - lots of em. In reality, there are none of these things.
