Hook in the Jaw

Prophecy Update: Hook in the Jaw! Sept.28, 2018

If anyone tells you that the Old Testament is not the Word of God for Christians, reject that because it is false. 2 Timothy 3:16 is very clear about this—“all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.” All Scripture includes the Old Testament. There are over 2500 allusions to the OT in the NT and 855 direct quotes. What this means is that the OT is sufficient as the absolute authority of God in the lives of Christians! God claims that the Bible, which existed in Jesus day, is the absolute authority for all people in every country regardless of what there circumstances are. It is this authority that makes prophecy so amazing. You can still say, the Bible tells me so!
If anyone tells you that you do not have to obey the Ten Commandments, do not believe them. All of the Ten Commandments are reiterated and restated in the NT, they are not part of a covenant which God threw away, they are part of the moral fabric of the creation. The covenant God made with Israel is eternal, it will never go away.

Isaiah 45:5-7 “I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me; That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other, The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.”

If you suppose with me that God is clear about His desire for people to hear His Word, and respond to Him as the only God, then the Gog-Magog prophecy will help accomplish that goal. All people around the globe will see God destroy the combined armies of Russia and Iran and their allies and it will bring Him glory. Ezekiel 38:23 is clear on this point: “I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the LORD.”’
God is looking to the world and giving them a choice: this choice is expressed many times, here is an example:

Isaiah 45:22-23, “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. “I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance.”

Did not God declare this also in the NT, as God makes clear that all people will bow to Him and His son Jesus.(Phil.2:9-11, Romans 14:11) The Gog Magog fulfillment will be another time when the world will be called on to bow to God and they will not do it!
This is OT teaching and is not to be rejected. Prophecy is coming about in our day, it is time to read the Old Testament, this is our Bible and it was written for us, it is for our profit!

Listen to what God says in Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’

When we remember the former things long past, we are remembering Ezekiel’s Prophecy and this is the Word of the Lord to the world in 2018, this Word which He gave us regarding the future war of Gog Magog, the rapture, the tribulation, all taught in the OT! God declared this war in Ezekiel 38-39, long ago and He will do what He said He will do. He will put a hook in the jaw of Russia and drag them down into Israel to fight.

This past week, several things took place that advanced the likelihood of this war. One of them was the shooting down of the Russian plane. It was shot down by Syrians and Russia blamed the Jews. Here is what took place right after:

“In the wake of one of their planes being shot down by Syrian missiles during an Israeli airstrike, Russia announced that within the next two weeks, they will be supplying Syria with the advanced S-300 missile defense system. The presence of the Russian missiles will seriously curtail Israel’s ability to cope with the Iranian military presence along their northern border and raises tensions in the region several notches.”

“[Israel is] determined to stop Iranian military entrenchment in Syria and the attempts by Iran, which calls for the destruction of Israel, to transfer to Hezbollah lethal weaponry [to be used] against Israel,” Netanyahu told Putin. The new S-300 system will not only enhance the Syrian army’s ability to respond to attacks but will also seriously inhibit Israel’s ability to operate in the region. Debka, an Israeli military intelligence website, suggested that the use of the system in such a manner might be a high-tech declaration of war.
Russia in two weeks will deploy the S-300 anti-aircraft system and will jam any jets trying to come into Syrian airspace. This will bring Russia and Israel into direct military conflict because Israel will not stop firing on Iranian military movements in Syria.
I have been studying and following the developments of the Gog Magog prophecy since 1979. At that point Russia Iran and Turkey were not allies. The Old Testament teaches me that these nations would become allies and it has happened. Other nations will join them and all of them are Muslim nations that hate Israel. If you believe the OT then you will believe what God says regarding the future. This is why I say, if someone tries to convince you that the OT is not for you and the Ten Commandments are not for you, do not believe them. Jesus said the exact opposite.
Jesus quoted OT passages to fight off the temptation of Satan, I encourage you to do the same thing! There is no difference in the God of the OT and the God of the NT. They are the same God and this God who demanded obedience in the OT still demands obedience in the NT. John 14:21 tells us that if we love Jesus we will keep His commandments. Romans 8:4 tells us that the fulfillment of the New Covenant from Jeremiah 31 is to fulfill the law inside of the believer, the righteous requirements of the law will be fulfilled in us—the believers who love the God of the OT. He is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and Jesus loves Him with all of His heart! If anyone believes that the OT God is a God of wrath and the God of the NT is love, then you do not know God. God is going to throw down His wrath on the world according to Revelation and Jesus is going to bring the wrath. Same God and same wrath!!

We need to be strengthened in our faith because the world is heading towards war. Iran has once again threatened the USA and says they will destroy us because they blame us for an attack in Iran. Donald Trump responded to Iran by telling them that we are ready for war with you!! Mike Pompeo said that we will attack Iran if they move against the USA. President Trump also warned Russia to not put the S-300 missile system in Syria. Both Israel and the USA are against what Russia and Iran are doing in Syria. This conflict will lead to the war that is prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39. Satan is working overtime to destroy Israel and Christians.
I was very encouraged by over 250 pastors in China who wrote to their government that they will not bow to the Chinese government if it meant that they would have to deny that Jesus is their Lord. We need to do the same thing in America. Jesus is our King, and we need to stand on that truth. Jesus told Pilate that He was a king and this is why He came into the world. In China, they are doing what is happening here. They track what you believe and then they censor you. Christians are censored on Facebook, Google, and by the IRS. The anti-Christ system is rising.

At the UN this week, the European Union made clear that they are going to back Iran against Israel and America. They are going to push a peace deal, one that they say will keep Iran from getting a nuke by giving them more money. I do not see how this will keep them from getting advanced weapons when China and Russia both support Iran with arms and money. All of these nations are on the path the Bible predicted. This week make a concerted effort to read the Bible and especially Isaiah 45-46 and Ezekiel 36-39. These passages will strengthen your faith and give you hope for the future.
If anyone tells you that Paul and Peter do not base their faith on the Word of God and namely the OT, they are not telling you the truth. Paul said, I Cor.15:3-4, For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. Paul did not deny the OT or cut it off! Peter says in I Peter 1:23-25 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. For,“ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.” And this is the word which was preached to you.” Peter thought salvation was based on the OT. Ask God for discernment this week.

Smorgasbord of Prophecy

Prophecy Update: Smorgasbord 9/21/18

Satan hates Israel and the Church. This week I want to show how Biblical prophecy is being pushed forward on multiple fronts. Matt.24:4-14 will be our guide.
I have been reading a lot about the persecution of Christians around the world. China has begun a renewed effort to destroy Christianity. Mao tried this and failed. Dictators have a desire to make everyone worship them as Xi Jingping of China is doing now. Matt.24:9 says, “then they will deliver you up to tribulation and will kill you and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name.”

“Largest Country In The World Is Destroying 1000s Of Crosses And Bibles. Many Christians in the western world don’t even realize that the persecution of the end times has already started. All over the world, Christians are being attacked, Bibles are being burned and churches are being shut down. This persecution has been escalating for quite some time, but what prompted me to write this article today was the dramatic change that we have witnessed in China this year. Up to this point, the Chinese government has largely tolerated the booming house church movement, but now that era of toleration is officially over. New religious regulations that went into effect in February are being brutally enforced, and this is causing some to point out the frightening parallels between Communist China and Nazi Germany.” (By Right Side News -September 17, 2018) The suppression of religious freedoms is part of an official campaign to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party and removing any potential challenge to the party’s power in the country.

Matt.24:5 says, “for many will come in My name saying I am the Christ and will mislead many.” I John 2:18 talks about many antichrists arising on the scene. This comes in the form of false teaching and outright defiance of God. The 20th century saw its share of dictators who acted as god—Hitler, Mao, Stalin. Now we have this year’s crop of megalomaniacs—Xi Jingping of China, Kim Jong Un of North Korea, Vladimir Putin of Russia, Erdogan of Turkey, Maduro of Venezuela, Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa and most of the leaders of the Muslim states just to name a few.
How about this headline: Biden: “Christians ‘intolerant’ of LGBT are ‘virulent dregs of society’ Former Vice President Joe Biden bashed Christians opposing the homosexual agenda as “forces of intolerance” and “virulent dregs of society” at a recent LGBT event, and a prominent pro-family group used his rant to alert Americans about what a leftist takeover in the nation’s capital would mean for believers.” Many in the progressive movement are giddy about the possibilities of winning back the house or senate in November—specifically so they can persecute Christians. I guess we are all ‘dregs of society’ according to Joe Biden.

Using China as an example again, the communist leadership of China, a country of 1.4 billion people is determined to stamp out Christianity. The Gospel Herald wrote this on Sunday: ‘China Forces Churches to Replace Crosses with National Flag, Display Pictures of President Xi Jinping. According to new regulations, “China’s Policies and Practices on Protecting Freedom of Religious Belief,” religious leaders “must conduct religious activities in the Chinese context, practice core socialist values, carry forward the fine traditions of the Chinese nation, and actively explore religious thought which conforms to the reality in China.” When Mao tried to destroy Christianity it sparked one of the largest revivals in history. Dictators never learn do they? Satan will do the same thing thru the anti-Christ only it won’t be an atheist doing it.
The persecution of Jews is also at an all-time high. The hatred of Israel around the world has grown to unprecedented heights. The Algemeiner reported Aug.28, “Former UK Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks Denounces Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn as ‘Antisemite’ Who Supports ‘Dealers of Hate” “Now, within living memory of the Holocaust, and while Jews are being murdered elsewhere in Europe for being Jews, we have an antisemite as the leader of the Labour Party and her majesty’s opposition. That is why Jews feel so threatened by Mr Corbyn and those who support him.”
The Sydney Morning Herald reported Sept.7th, More ‘prejudice in general’: creeping anti-Semitism stalks Europe. “Whenever anti-Semitism has been on the rise, you know that something bigger is going on. It is a sign that something is going wrong with society.” On the continent that saw the Holocaust, Jewish people are worried. In Germany many had metaphorically put their suitcases in the cellar – but they are now wondering if they should bring them back upstairs and start packing. In Austria, One of the party’s candidates in January’s national election had stood down after it was revealed he was a member of a fraternity whose songbook included lyrics about killing Jews, including “step on the gas, we’ll manage the seventh million”. He claimed not to have read all the pages.

Matt.24:6, “And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars see that you are not frightened for those things must take place but that is not yet the end.”
I believe that God raised up Barack Obama to set the conditions in Europe and the Middle East for war. I believe that God raised up Trump to light the match that will lead to the wars that will eventually bring in the Tribulation period.

Check out these flashpoints: Azov Sea Flashpoint: Russia, Ukraine Teetering On The Brink Of War. This article was written on 9/17 and catalogues the tension on the sea between Russia and Ukraine, tensions are very high for war.
“US backed Syrian forces launched an offensive on last ISIS holdout on eastern bank of the Euphrates River.” I will say more about this later in the update, but this is a bigger deal then most realize.
“Japan has carried out its first submarine drill in the South China Sea, a newspaper said Monday (Sep 17), a move that could provoke Beijing which claims most of the disputed waters. Submarine Kuroshio on Thursday joined three Japanese warships in waters just southwest of the China-controlled Scarborough Shoal, the Asahi Shimbun said.” The South China Sea is a bomb ready to go off, China has many nations angry at her for her dominance of the sea!

Matt.24:7, “for nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

This headline is stunning (9/18): “Trump Does Not Have a Problem with West Bank Settlements” The U.S. ambassador said President Trump believes that Jewish settlements are not an obstacle to peace. One of the places on earth where nation is rising against nation is in the West Bank, biblical Judea and Samaria. God is very clear that He will bring the Jews back to this land and that it will not be a divided country. There will be no two state solution according to Biblical prophecy. As most of you know, I have written extensively on this topic and it is now at the forefront. With Trump putting so much pressure on the PA, they are falling apart. They will stike Israel and lose everything! God will have His way in Israel and the whole world will stand in awe! Ezekiel 36:36 says, “Then the nations that are left round about you will know that I the LORD have rebuilt the ruined places and planted that which was desolate I the LORD have spoken and will do it.”
America has troops on the Euphrates river, a river that is drying up. This is biblical prophecy, according to Revelation, the 200 million man army that comes from the east will cross a dried up Euphrates. (Rev.16:12) The pictures on the internet are stunning. Why is it drying up? Iran and Turkey are intentionally taking the water of the Euphrates. Check out this article from today, Sept.21–
Iran, Turkey dam projects drying up Iraq’s water, Gulf News Iraq. Iran is trying to cut off the Tigris River completely from the Sirwan — its original source. Iraq, the land of the ancient Assyrian and Sumerian civilisations, had, until recent years, abundant water sources. But, not anymore. At present, the country faces a growing shortage of water due to many factors, including several dam projects built by Iran and Turkey on the two main rivers — the Euphrates and Tigris, they account for nearly 98 per cent of the country’s surface water, studies show. This is why it is so important that American troops are on the Euphrates.

At this moment, many nations are vying for water in the Middle East and China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and America have a lot of arms and men ready to fight it out over the water and oil and gas. Israel is caught in the middle because they need nothing from any of these nations—they have all of the gas, oil, and water that they need. What happens in history when one nation has more natural resources then other nations? War!!! This is not a minor amount of water, oil, and gas, it is a lot of it and the nations want what Israel has. Russia will eventually attack Israel to get it. The tensions between Israel and Russia grew this week when Syria downed a Russian plane and Russia blamed Israel.
The drying up of the Euphrates leads to Armageddon. The tensions of the nations in Europe and the Middle East with the persecution of believers and Jews are all in play and prophesied by Jesus to take place in the end times. These things are happening quicker like birth pangs. I have not even spoken about earthquakes and natural disasters! Iraq is in a catastrophic drought at the same time that Turkey and Iran are diverting the waters of the Euphrates. The Washington Times reported last week that Iraq will only have 40% of the water they had just 10 years ago. This is happening quickly my friend which means the Rapture of the Church is just around the corner!! One last thing, as all of this is happening the world has moved closer to the mark of the beast. I will write more on this next week but suffice to say, China has already introduced the system that antichrist will use in the end times. Come Lord Jesus Come—can’t happen fast enough for me!

Peace Treaty

Prophecy Update: Peace Treaty 9/14/18

I am concerned about anyone who says that they can make a peace deal between Israel and the world. The world says that the problems in the world are a direct result of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. If you solve this problem it will bring peace to the world. Our President says that it is the ultimate peace plan. The Jewish Press reported on Sept.8, “Tasked by U.S. President Donald Trump to help reach the “deal of the century,” Jason Greenblatt, who serves as one of Trump’s top Middle East envoys, has a herculean task before him: to help negotiate the peace plan between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

The deal of the century can be the peace plan that is confirmed by the anti-Christ. The last few peace deals were all failures and none of them had anything in them that I thought could be used by the anti-Christ for the seven year peace deal he will confirm. Here are two important verses about this peace deal.

Daniel 9:27 says, “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”

2 Thess.2:3-4, “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”

These two verses point out that the peace deal will be confirmed for seven years. In the middle of the seven years, anti-Christ will break the deal and sit in the Temple to make everyone worship him as God. Here is what Greenblatt said about the peace deal: “I think our plan begins with reality. It recognizes the history of the conflict of course, but [other plans] were always relying on tired notions of what it should be. Instead, it focuses on what it could be. Our plan isn’t just a two-page turn sheet; it’s an extensive document that we’ve developed that explains how we think the conflict can be resolved.”

Here is a list of all the failed peace deals: Arab–Israeli peace diplomacy and treaties
1949 Armistice Agreements, Allon Plan, Rogers Plan, Geneva Conference (1973)
Camp David Accords (1978), Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty (1979), Madrid Conference of 1991, Oslo Accords (1993). Notice that after 1993, all of the attempts at a new peace deal have failed. In 1995 they upped the ante of the Oslo accords but they were never really followed. It was a sham in my eyes. I don’t have time to show you how all of these peace deals were deficient and failures, all you have to do is see that today there is no peace. This is what Jesus said, they cry peace but it never comes.

Two things bother me about the Trump plan: they believe that they can resolve the problem thru a peace deal. They believe that their peace deal is dealing with reality. I think both of these beliefs are not taking into consideration the spiritual battle going on behind the invisible veil of prophecy. No one can solve this problem because Satan will move all of the nations of the world to hate Israel and hate Jesus. Reality means that your eyes are open to what people believe and are committed to. This is why what Trump is doing is so amazing–

What is ironic is that Trump is actually beginning to stand against all of the lies of the evil one. He is going after the lie of the Palestinian right of return. As Trump has put pressure on the PLO and cut off their funds they are reeling. He shut off funds to pay terrorists which every president refused to stand up to. He shut off funds at the UN. “After cutting aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in January, the U.S. announced two weeks ago that they would no longer contribute to the organization. The U.S. is the major contributor to the organization which is currently in an economic crisis, scrambling among the other nations for funding.” He is now shutting down the PLO offices in Washington D.C. When he moved the embassy to Jerusalem he attacked the false teaching that Jerusalem is the capital of the Palestinian state. John Bolton spoke about this Tuesday and linked the decision to abandon the PLO with the false court called the International Criminal Court.
Here are some quotes: “The Trump administration will not keep the office open when the Palestinians refuse to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel,” according to an early draft of Bolton’s remarks reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. “We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC. We will not join the ICC. We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us,” says Bolton’s draft text. The PLO responded by saying: “We reiterate that the rights of the Palestinian people are not for sale, that we will not succumb to US threats and bullying,” Erekat said in a statement. “Accordingly, we continue to call upon the International Criminal Court to open its immediate investigation into Israeli crimes.”

The US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman said, “We have thrown billions of dollars at the Palestinians and we are not a millimeter closer to peace.” He went on to say that “since 1994 we have thrown 10 billion dollars at the Palestinians and got nothing.” I have been saying for years that no Palestinian or Muslim wants peace with Israel, they want Israel to leave or die. We have thrown ten billion dollars of American money at people to get them to stop attacking Jews! They have never stopped attacking Jews and Christians. Now we have a President who is standing up for Jews and Christians around the world and the world hates it.
The other player in this mess is Iran. Trump also stood against the lies of the Obama administration concerning the intent of the Iranians. Their intent is clear, death to Israel and death to America. How can you make peace with someone who cries war every Friday afternoon? Psalm 120:7 says, “I am for peace but when I speak they are for war.” This is the true nature of all negotiations with Iran and the PLO the last 40 years. No one in Iran wants peace with Israel except the populace who are at odds with the dictatorship. Europe will eventually have the anti-Christ come to power, made their intentions known this week. Consider this headline:
“A Greater Threat to Israel than Iran: The Deception of NGOs. In direct opposition to President Donald Trump’s renewed sanctions against Iran, the European Union has made the grandiose offer of $20.7 million in aid to the Ayatollah Khamanei and his terrorist regime. Mr. Trump made the decision to reinstate the measures in order to halt Iran’s threat of furthering its pursuit of nuclear weapons. While the move by the EU has posed a renewed threat by Iran to Israel and the Middle East, there is an even greater and less perceived menace: Non-governmental organizations, or NGOs. Supposedly humanitarian groups claiming only to promote human rights, these bodies are known to be actively involved in discrediting Israel in every way possible. Often working behind the scenes and totally unaccountable for their political actions, NGOs are the recipients of major subsidies from governments.”
NGO’s are proof that many governments are working overtime to destroy the Jewish people and country. The EU is full of government funding for groups dedicated to destroying Israel. They are dedicated to covering up who is doing the funding. “The lack of transparency when it comes to donors, dispersal, budgets, and extent of said aid is in contravention of rudimentary democratic values. Some governments that supports NGOs have alleged that such information is, in fact, “state secrets” and disclosure of the information would be a “danger to public security.” Heaven forbid that Israel should discover who is secretly funding the internal riots, attacks, and terrorist activities!”
Many people are seeing that the removal of the PLO from the process works into biblical prophecy. Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-days author, “believes the political marginalization of the Palestinians is a sign that they have fulfilled their purpose in the Messianic process and are no longer necessary. “This is clearly a divine process since it was totally unexpected. It certainly wouldn’t have happened under Obama and probably not under any of the previous presidents who promised to move the embassy but didn’t.” The world under the leadership of Satan promotes Iran and the PLO so that they can destroy Israel. Trump has stopped funding to the two darlings of the Satanic hatred of Israel. This is Biblical prophecy coming true in our day.
A new bill in the House of Representatives is H.R. 1697, The Israel Anti-Boycott Act and it prohibits boycotts against allies of the United States boycotts fostered by international governmental organizations against Israel and to direct the Export-Import Bank of the United States to oppose boycotts against Israel, and for other purposes. This is a great bill and will bless Israel and the USA. The world hates this stuff that Trump is doing and as you see, this year has been an amazing year of seeing the USA and Israel forging ties of solidarity I have never seen in my life. I am thrilled, but I know the evil one will never allow a peace deal that will be in Gods will. He is working overtime to stop Trump blessing Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and that God will protect our President against those who hate what is right and good. I also pray that Trump may stop the peace deal! Are you ready for the Lord to come back? I hope you are praying and in the Word of God daily to prepare. God Bless You.

World War in Revelation

Prophecy Update: Sept.7, 2018

As I track the moves of China and Russia, I see that a major war is brewing between the USA and her allies and China, Russia and their allies. I am tracking these developments because the Bible tells us that after Anti-Christ signs the peace deal with Israel, Revelation says there will be a world war. The four horsemen of the apocalypse will ride and one of the horses has Anti-Christ riding the horse to take control of the earth. The white horse has a rider going out to conquer, the red horse brings war for men to kill each other and the ashen horse rides as death and one fourth of the earth is killed.

America is in danger from other nations as we have never been in the past. Having two oceans protecting us and weak neighbors militarily, we have always felt safe. Not anymore! I usually track the specific prophecies regarding Israel and the wars that they are facing biblically. The question has always bothered and fascinated me about where is America in prophecy. Is God going to remove America from the power players on the earth? If He is then I think these developments will be a part of that judgment.

The Russians have started war games and have been moving tanks and arms in place that give evidence that Russia is preparing for war. There are now 25 warships in the Mediterranean Sea and 1000 tanks have been moved to the western edge of Russia. To say that Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia are nervous is an understatement.

Debka file reported this weekend: “Taking part in Russia’s 8-day sea-air exercise that was launched in the eastern Mediterranean on Saturday are 26 warships and 30 aircraft. Commanded by Russian Navy chief Adm. Vladimir Korolov, the drills range over a section of water between the Syrian coast and Cyprus. The cruise missile carrier, the Marshal Ustinov cruiser, is the flag ship. The air force contingent taking part in the exercise includes Tu-160 strategic bombers, Tu-142 and Il-38 anti-submarine warfare planes and Su-33 and Su-30SM fighter-bombers.”
Russia’s Multinational Military Exercise Last Week Was A Dry Run For Bigger War Games. NPR is reporting: The exercise on the remote Chebarkul tank range was a dry run for even bigger Russian war games with China, starting next week. Moscow is billing the upcoming Vostok-2018, or East-2018, exercises in eastern Russia as the most massive in almost four decades. “Russia’s entire Central Military District, with all its personnel, will directly take part in the upcoming military maneuvers,” said Lt. Gen. Alexander Lapin as a helicopter clattered overhead. “We will proudly take part in these exercises — unprecedented in their size — and apply new methods for the current circumstances.” “Peace Mission 2018” was held under the auspices of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a loose grouping of Eurasian nations. The 3,000 troops who participated came from seven member countries, with regional rivals India and Pakistan taking part in a joint military exercise for the first time ever.

This coalition of armies from the Shanghai Cooperation Organization is preparing for war with the United States. These countries would like to get rid of the dollar and the US for good. “The SCO’s eight members now account for about half of the world’s population, a quarter of the world’s GDP, and about 80 percent of the Eurasian landmass. Two of the SCO members are permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia and China), and four are nuclear states (Russia, China, India, and Pakistan). Three of the SCO members are part of the BRICS grouping (Russia, China, and India). All of this grants considerable perceived political value to the SCO.” As the West is in crises, turning her back on the Judeo/Christian worldview, persecuting Jews and Christians, the East is rising.

These forces are partly responsible for what happened today: 9/4: Russia resumed air strikes on rebel-held Idlib on Tuesday, after a 22-day pause, the London-based observatory reported. Earlier, President Donald Trump warned Bashar Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies against “recklessly attacking” the last rebel-held province of Syria. “The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy,” he tweeted. “Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed.” But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov rejected the warning and said the Syrian army was “getting ready” to clear a “nest of terrorists” there.

Russia has been practicing at war in Syria and Ukraine for many years and America has been blind to the developing capabilities and alliance made with China. The current large scale war games are being done with Chinese soldiers. Yale professor Paul Bracken has spoken about this blind spot in American diplomacy. He said that Russia is trying to disrupt any notion that America is leading the world with any kind of coalition of countries that support her. China is clearly following a plan to attack and hinder America. Both of these countries for the last ten years have attacked America thru cyber warfare without the country saying anything publicly. China and Russia are opposing USA power by disrupting NATO, and splitting any alliances that we have. China has two economic reasons to oppose America, the South China sea and the One Belt Initiative which is their economic strategy uniting Asia and Europe.

In the last year, Putin of Russia threatened to nuke America. He put up a video of Florida being nuked. In an interview with Megyn Kelly several months ago, Putin said that Russia’s nuclear weapons are battle ready. How seriously should America take this threat? Putin said, “Russia was and remains a big nuclear state but no, no one wanted to speak with us constructively, no one has listened to us, but you will listen now. Sarmat is a very powerful mighty weapon due to its characteristics. No anti-ballistic missile systems could be used to stop it.”

The United Nations Security council met on 9/6 to talk about the battle over Idlib. As the US has warned Russia about killing all of those people, Russia has basically told the Americans to butt out of it. The confrontation has been further complicated by America claiming that the Syrians and Russians are going to use chemical weapons in this fight. The BBC reported this morning that: “Syria war: US ‘has seen evidence’ chemical weapons being prepared. The new US envoy for Syria has said there is “lots of evidence” that Syrian government forces are preparing to use chemical weapons in Idlib. Jim Jeffrey said an anticipated offensive against the last major rebel-held area would be a “reckless escalation”, Reuters reported.” America is controlling the eastern part of Syria over the Euphrates River, Russia wants the spoils of war and Idlib is the last holdout. If America intervenes because of chemical warfare, the war will get much bigger. Syria and Russia are telling people that it is the US led people who are using chemical weapons. Russia is flexing its muscles and they are preparing for a bigger war. As the Ruble falls and the economy dies in Russia, war is the answer.

TEHRAN, Iran (AFP) — “The presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey were due to meet Friday in Tehran for talks on the future of Idlib province amid growing fears of a humanitarian disaster in Syria’s last major rebel bastion.” These three countries are experiencing the failure of their currencies because of American sanctions. Russia and China are ditching the dollar and as they do this, globally we will see more and more instability. Most people are unaware of the dangers this poses for America. How will America enforce the use of the dollar across the world?
Add to this explosive mix the desires of the Communist Chinese. With absolute control over their people comes absolute efficiency. China is controlling the South China Sea so they can control the economies of the region, bribe those who move cargo thru the sea, and stay in power. 18% of our exports go to China and now Trump has thrown down the gauntlet, raising tariffs to raise money and right some wrongs economically. Whenever a rising power threatens an established power, war is inevitable. This is a rule of history. That is why I say that war is inevitable with China. What is worse, China and Russia are now allies against the USA. China is ruled by an absolutist dictator who added his name to the constitution and made all 88 million communist party members copy the constitution by hand! Xi Jingping is worse than Mao, and Mao was a murdering evil man. He has effectively gained control of the South China Sea from America.

I read a military analysis of WW2 and the paper concluded that whoever controlled the Pacific theatre could potentially control the world. China has dominated her neighbors and few if any have objected to this takeover! The One Belt policy connects China to 68 countries and is their largest investment into their economy. It joins the One child policy and the One China policy. China throws money into this endeavor, they give the money and ask nothing about human rights. They do not care about human rights, only China rights and communist rights. Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, and Vietnam beg to differ with China on control of the South China Sea, but what can they do? None of these countries are strong enough to fight China. That is where the USA enters—Britain also has entered this fray and China threatened them today with economic war. BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) – “China on Friday warned Britain ties were at risk unless it took steps to “rectify” the situation, after a British warship sailed close to South China Sea islands claimed by China, while a major newspaper said sealing a free trade deal could now be harder.”
These tensions are setting up a big war that can only culminate in the war described in Revelation with the four horseman of the apocalypse. Time is short, this weekend is the feast of Trumpets, pray that God will preserve us. Pray that Jesus will come for His church! Maranatha.
