Meditate on Prophecy

Prophecy Central: Meditate on the Truth! 3/22/2023

Many years ago I read “Sit Walk Stand” by Watchman Nee. The book taught the outline of the book of Ephesians, focusing on our rest in Jesus (sit) always preceded our lifestyle (walk). The teaching focused on the pattern in the Bible; God giving us the promises before the commands and laws. In my Greek classes in graduate school they called this the indicative-imperative pattern of teaching. Indicative verb form in grammar tells us the facts while the imperative verb form tells us the commands. 

Recently, I have been meditating on the importance of thinking and meditating on all that God has done for us in Christ. The pattern for the believer, set by the Lord is the truth about our relationship with Jesus then commands us to obey. I often teach that it is “promise before law, always!” The first commandment in the book of Romans comes at Romans 6:11 and says, 

 “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

This command follows the teaching on salvation, focusing on all that God has done in Jesus to save us. God uses the word “know” three times in Romans 6:1-10 to alert us to the facts that we are united with Christ.  We are given the same pattern when it comes to understanding the last days. 

“Then he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the time of the end.” 

Daniel 12:9

God sealed up the book until the end of times. What does this mean? Certainly, God would give understanding to people about the book of Daniel in every age, wouldn’t He? The answer is yes and God knows how to increase understanding as the years come closer and closer to the end. Some interpreters take this verse to mean that the angel sealed up the book he was reading from, some take it to mean the book that Daniel wrote. In either case, we have historical proof that Daniel was studied in earnest in the 19th and 20th centuries more than all of the centuries preceding it.

“Then about the middle of the nineteenth century — and not until then — there came a reawakened interest in prophecy. This can be traced very clearly in history. The Reformers did not deal much with prophetic passages; they were concerned about other issues. But about the middle of the nineteenth century, in England and other places, prophetic truth came to light again. Christians began to study predictive passages earnestly, and great conventions were held to propagate prophetic truths. It was also at that time that knowledge began to increase. The vast explosion of modern knowledge broke upon men as a result. I do not know how to prove that, but it is most interesting to note the connection of these things. There are hidden secrets of life that we have not yet begun to understand. One of them is the strange connection within the spirit of man between his knowledge of God and the rest of his life. Here is, perhaps, one very remarkable instance of how that connection has been demonstrated in a most practical way.” https://www.raystedman.org/ 

It was at this time that the interest in Israel was dawning in the church of the living God. Horatius Bonar, Robert Murray McCheyne, and J.C. Ryle, just to name a few, began writing in Britain on prophecy and the importance of Israel in the early and mid 1800’s. In America, prophecy conferences broke out all over the USA. The timing of these things is nothing less than supernatural! Zionism was growing and the call to restart the nation of Israel came to fruition in 1896 when Theodor Herzl, the founder of the Modern Zionist movement wrote “Der Judenstaat” a vision for the future independent Jewish state he hoped would come to fruition during the 20th century. 

Meditating on Daniel and the end time prophecies has increased in the last 200 years among Christians. It is important for us to meditate on these truths because it is the time we live in. In Matt.24-26 God used the word that means ‘stay awake’ ‘watch with me’ in relation to the end times, we are to be watchmen on the wall. We do not know the day or hour when Jesus will show up to take us to be with Him, therefore be ready! Consider yourself dead to sin, meaning that we are dead to the moves of the new world order globalists who push us to believe unbiblical evil things! Consider yourself alive to God, meaning that we are actively looking for our Savior to come and take us home!

“But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the time of the end; many will go to and fro, and knowledge will increase.” Daniel 12:4

The prophetic teaching is that the knowledge of end times prophecy would increase at the same time, knowledge and travel would increase. That is exactly what happened. 

Let’s look at the fulfillment of this prophecy. At the time of Daniel the prophet, travel was primarily by foot, with only the wealthy able to afford a horse, donkey, or animal drawn carriage. As a result, few traveled, and even those that could were not able to travel frequently, or very far. Travel was limited to getting to the next village, or town – perhaps at most a few hundred miles, Even Jesus traveled no more that a few hundred miles about Israel during His time on earth.

Travel has increased exponentially since the time of Daniel. We no longer travel by foot, but by many other forms – horse, wagon, chariot, then in the 1800’s travel began using trains, automobiles, and eventually planes and jet aircraft. And indeed “many”, in contrast to the past few, and running “to and fro” throughout the earth! https://evidencetobelieve.com/  

“Many will be purged, purified, and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.” 

Daniel 12:10

We live in a day where the wicked do not understand what they are doing. They are following the prophetic mandate because our Sovereign God is making it happen. Christians are understanding and have insight into what is happening! The globalist push for a global government is happening when apostasy spreads across the globe. Even in the Catholic church they see apostasy in the church.

“Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), blasted the heretical German Synodal Way, saying it is worse than schism and calling it a variant of “materialistic and nihilistic woke culture” that has abandoned “the very essence of Christianity. In a recent interview with the conservative German magazine Tichys Einblicke, Müller was asked about his most recent book “In Buona Fede,” in which he stated that the situation of the Catholic Church in Germany is “worse than schism.” https://www.lifesitenews.com/  

“Pope Francis has again denied Catholic dogma concerning the afterlife. First he said, “No one can be condemned forever”  then he said that the souls of unrepentant sinners who die in mortal sin are simply “annihilated” or disappear and are not punished eternally. Now he’s saying that Hell does not exist.” https://canadafreepress.com/   

The apostasy in the American church and the churches in England is well documented. Some of the apostasy is expressed in the rise of Islam. This is causing great waves among the wicked. Consider the dilemma the wicked face when considering a global government. It can’t be Chinese, it can’t be Russian, and it can’t be Islamic, so what do they do? Satan has decided to mix the religions so that one day he can destroy all of them so they worship him in the man of his choosing, the antichrist. 

The Church in England has been overrun by false teachers who teach Chrislam. They mix Islam and Christianity to form an end times new religion. The Abraham House which features a church, synagogue, and mosque is the new religion that is being pushed by the Pope and many other protestant churches. This movement is part of the fall of Christianity in Europe. This is clearly seen in Britain as these next few articles highlight. First, let me alert you to Melanie Phillips’ book “Londonistan” which she wrote in 2006. 

“The suicide bombings carried out in London in 2005 by British Muslims revealed an enormous fifth column of Islamist terrorists and their sympathizers. Under the noses of British intelligence, London has become the European hub for the promotion, recruitment and financing of Islamic terror and extremism – so much so that it has been mockingly dubbed Londonistan. In this ground-breaking book Melanie Phillips pieces together the story of how Londonistan developed as a result of the collapse of traditional English identity and accommodation of a particularly virulent form of multiculturalism. Londonistan has become a country within the country and not only threatens Britain but its special relationship with the U.S. as well.

Notice what she says, the multiculturalism of Britain has overran Christianity and the Christian worldview! The same process that happened in Britain is happening in America. Barack Obama pushed the Muslim Brotherhood to places of prominence and authority in American government and law and now it is in full swing under Biden. 

The Islamization of Great Britain is on full display in Central London’s iconic West End which has been decorated for the first time to mark the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Countries across the Middle East, from Turkey to Iran celebrated the news in their media.” https://rairfoundation.com/   

I believe that the Gog Magog war may have a double effect: just thinking out loud now so please take this in the spirit it is given. I think that the war could knock out much of the Islamic terror groups and leave a deflated, defeated Islamic world so that Antichrist can rise in its vacuum of power. Satan will never put up with an Abraham House religion!  Also it will have a second effect, as Russia will be destroyed and many nations with it, Europe can rise with the antichrist influence and savior complex, the man with a plan so to speak! He will come riding in on a white horse to save the day. This possible scenario points to the fact that we need more than ever to be close to our Lord. With the threat of bank failures, the digital currency becoming  a reality in July, and world war 3, Christians need the wisdom of Jesus. The rapture of the church is the blessing and hope of all Christians, let us encourage each other as we see the day drawing near. 

One last thing, yesterday the news was ablaze with a story about Bezael Smoktrich claiming that there is no such thing as a Palestinian with a map of Israel behind him that included all of the land of Israel, encompassing Jordan. Jordan lodged a protest calling it racist. Problem for everyone, what Smoktrich said was true and God will give all of the land back to Israel. The game is afoot as they say, God is on the move to fulfill prophecy.

Decepton

Prophecy Update: Deception at an all time high! 3/15/2023

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” 

Colossians 2:8

We live during a time of deception. Jesus warned us that deception would be one of the hallmarks of evil governments, false teachers, prophets, and the end times. The increase of nations using deception as a weapon of warfare was inevitable. The increase of deception in the church was also inevitable!

“Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, Nor deceive with your lips.” Proverbs 24:28

In Matthew 24 Jesus gives us an intelligence briefing on the end times and mentions deception four times. (vss.4,5,8,24) The increase of deception would happen because Satan will be given more and more room to do his evil. When God gives permission to Satan to increase his evil, we know that God is up to something big. 

“and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were finished. After these things he must be released for a short time.” 

Revelation 20:3

Satan has been deceiving the nations from the beginning, he works to deceive them in two major areas. First, Satan deceives the nations religiously because he wants to get the glory that is God alone. Second, he deceives the nations socially and culturally. If he can convince people groups to adopt foundational truths that are anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-semitic, and anti-truth, he will move that people group to corruption. 

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” 

1Tim.4:1

The Holy Spirit told us this to prepare us for the last days. This satanic deception is multi-layered and infiltrates the church and the culture. For some reason, UFO’s and UAP, unidentified aerial phenomena are at the heart of some of the deception. If you are going to have a new religion for the last days, then you have to have a deception worthy of getting a new religion. Would it surprise you that a place like Harvard University takes very  seriously that we are being visited by alien beings? The end times deception will include aliens in spaceships who were seeding the planet. This is the view of the Pentagon and Harvard University: 

“A mysterious object in our solar system could be an alien mothership sending smaller probes to monitor the Earth, according to a new draft report co-authored by the head of the Pentagon’s UFO research office. Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the Pentagon’s new All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, put forward the theory in a recently released, but still-unfinalized paper he wrote with a long-serving head of Harvard University’s astronomy department, Abraham Loeb.” The paper notes that Harvard’s alien-seeking Galileo Project, which Abraham leads, is hoping to recover a 2014 interstellar meteor from the Pacific Ocean floor “in the coming year.” Researchers will determine “whether its extraordinary material strength resulted from it being made out of an artificial alloy, like stainless steel or materials not yet developed by humans.” https://americanmilitarynews.com/  

I say this a lot these days, but you can’t make this stuff up. Seriously, Harvard and the Pentagon are buying into the fiction of alien planets, super advanced species that will teach us and guide us in the new age about to commence. Satan is having a field day among the so-called elite of our country.  He is also having a field day among the churches:

“Is belief in God and the biblical worldview nearing extinction in America? According to a new and not exactly shocking study from the Cultural Research Center (CRC) at Arizona Christian University, the answer is yes. Though there is still a remnant of true, mature, Bible-believing Christians is strong and doctrinally sound, the numbers don’t look good. This is the first study of Americans’ worldview in the “post-lockdown era” of the last few years. According to the CRC, the biblical worldview has declined to a disturbing, historic low of just 4%. Ouch.” https://harbingersdaily.com/  

Not only in culture is the biblical worldview under attack, but also in the church. I do not say this lightly, but many pastors I know personally, do not operate out of the Christian worldview, and very few pastors I know believe in the inerrancy of scripture. This is the reason that morally the church has sunk down so low. The Methodist have split over the LGBT, alphabet soup crowd. Can you imagine that churches, instead of preaching the gospel, will compromise on any moral issue! Here’s why:

“The transformation of once-wholesome American corporations like Disney and Walmart into fulcrums of LGBT power, advancing a wildly destructive sex-and-gender revolution, is not just a tragic story of American moral decline, but also one that offers vital and little-known lessons on the strategies and tactics of the Sexual Left. How did it happen? Surely, a host of factors contributed to the present crisis — the nation’s growing secularization and abandonment of biblical ethos, the increasingly slavish devotion of corporate media to all things LGBTQ, the “coming out” of millions of Americans.”  https://www.wnd.com/   

Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 4 that in the last days that people in the church will not endure sound doctrine. This is not only true of the immoral behavior of the people in the LGBT community that have infiltrated the church, but Christian churches are driven more by self improvement psychological preaching then biblical preaching. Sound doctrine is the healthy teaching of the truths of God’s Word. God has a standard for all people and He expects everyone to accept that standard for their lives. This is not up for debate among those who love God and love His Word! This generation rejects sound doctrine, wants woke teaching that conforms to the world which fulfills their “itching ears”  2Tim.4:3!

In our community, we have seen the faithful preach the Gospel, the truth of sound doctrine, and increase the influence of God’s Word. The LifeWise academy movement is one hopeful movement that is getting the Word of God into the hands of the children. God is moving even in the midst of the darkening of American culture. 

I just read a story of God supernaturally saving over 10,000 Muslims in a Muslim nation. These new Christians will be under the threat of death by their families and Imam’s. Satan is using Islam to persecute Christians worldwide and in America. Here is a list of things our government has done to encourage the persecution of Christians and Jews:

Hady Amr is a Beirut-born Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Biden Administration and part of the Muslim Brotherhood movement to destroy America:

  • “Biden Sends Pro-Hamas Envoy ‘Inspired by Intifada’ to Mediate Between Israel and Jihad Terrorists”, Jihad Watch, by Daniel Greenfield, May 14, 2021
  • “Two Biden administration officials attend ISNA convention, State Department distances itself from pro-jihad rhetoric”, Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer
  • Retired General John R. Allen secretly lobbied for the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government of Qatar, lied to investigators about his role, and tried to withhold evidence sought by a federal subpoena, according to court documents
  •  “Feds drop probe of far-Left general accused of lobbying for Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Qatar”, Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer, February 5, 2023

The Muslim Brotherhood flourished under President Obama, his influence over Pres. Biden is revealed by the infiltration of Islamic Jihadi organizations in our government. This movement is the Trojan Horse of America and will lead to terrorist attacks all over America. The alliance between Islamic Jihad groups and the American left is called the Red Green alliance.  

The Red Green alliance includes communist China and they are invading our southern border. Illegal Chinese border crossings are up 800% over the last two years. The O Biden administration has gone all in on his love for communism and Iran! However, the pandemic caused the wheat to be separated from the chaff in the Christian community. Our heritage as Christians is to stand in the gap, to be a restraining force against evil, and to be a hedge against the deception of our generation. As we tell the truth, we will see more people turn to the Lord. God has always used these times in history to initiate revival. Take Jesus warning seriously, false teachers and those who wish to mislead us are everywhere! When we stay in the Word and prayer, we will see the Holy Spirit fulfill His mission to guide us into all of the truth and speak with boldness and clarity. 

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” 

Proverbs 28:1

Jerusalem History and Purim

Prophecy Update: Jerusalem, history and the Feast of Purim. 3/9/2023

“Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” 

Luke 21:28

The prophetic scriptures regarding the last days reveal a pattern. The pattern is like a woven fabric. When Jesus told us to ‘look up’ He was referring to the pattern of prophetic events. When we see all of these things happening then we know that Jesus is about to bring into being, all that He said He would do!

On Oct. 30, 2008, Pres. candidate Barack Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” I would argue with President Obama that the fundamental change in America started before he was born. Obama was just one part of the process that Jesus initiated in WW2. The greatest generation was known for defeating fascism and Reagan was known for defeating communism, but no one could defeat Jesus’ plan to bring Israel back to the land and set up the last days.

The plan Jesus initiated regards the city of the Great King, the city of Jerusalem. On the heels of WW2, and for the first time since 70A.D. the Jews were no longer wanderers, they came back to the land promised to them by Jesus; 1948! That date is the start of the admonition given to us by Jesus in Luke 21:28, when you see these things begin to happen!

First, Jesus initiated the war that would kick the Turks out of Jerusalem (WW1) and give it to the British. The British had a long and tortuous relationship with the Jews. The Crusader king, Edward the First, expelled the Jews from England in 1291. Believing that they were doing their Christian duty, the Brits treated the Jews as the enemy of Christendom. It was not until 1656 that Oliver Cromwell gave permission to Jews to resettle in Britain.  Jesus was doing a work in Britain that would lead to the Balfour Declaration in 1917. It was in 1538 that King Henry VIII issued a proclamation “one book of the whole Bible of the largest volume in English to be placed in every church in England. The Bible was to be placed in some convenient place whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it.” The next command will make you weep–King Henry then wrote, “that you shall discourage no man from reading or hearing of the said Bible but you shall expressly stir, provoke and exhort every person to read the same.”  If only our own nation would make such a proclamation!  

I will be very bold to suggest that God was stirring the hearts of the British to read the Bible so they would do what Jesus wanted them to do with the gospel and the Jews! In 1611, the King James Bible was complete and I highly doubt that this nation would have written the Balfour Declaration in 1917 if it had not been for the movement of the Spirit of God to cause the nation to read and learn from the Bible, as their final authority, what Jesus was going to do with the Jews. The nation that saw John Wycliffe murdered for translating the Bible into the English language in 1380, was now pushing everyone to read the Bible as their final authority in their lives. God raised up another group of people who would play a central part in this story. 

In 1649, the Puritans petitioned the government, “That this nation of England, with the inhabitants of the Netherlands, shall be the first and the readiest to transport Israel’s sons and daughters in their ships to the land promised to their forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for an everlasting inheritance.” Part of the petition was to repeal Edward I’s act of banishment and restore Jews to their own land and give them permission to come back to England. To understand the motives for this move, one must see that the Spirit of God was using the reading of the Bible to cause people to see the teaching of Scripture regarding the Jews! The Puritan evangelical movement was instrumental in the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948! The Puritans embodied what we see in the evangelical movement the last three years, the uncompromising belief in the authority of God’s Word for our lives! The Bible is a higher authority than the government, church leaders, and police! 

Just as the Puritans ran into persecution in England from church officials and kings who refused to see the authority of the Bible, so Israel is seeing the same thing happening in the UN and its own country. We in America have been experiencing the same thing for many years, the Bible has been thrown out of the public square. 

Fast forward to the 1800’s in our story and a significant letter was written by Lord Palmerston in 1840 to his ambassador in Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire. The letter said, “There exists at the present time among the Jews dispersed over Europe a strong notion that the time is approaching when their nation is to return to Palestine.” Several British leaders, chief among them, Lord Shaftesbury, said that it was high time to fulfill prophecy and restore Jews to their land. It was said of Lord Shaftesbury that, “a deeply religious man who based his life on literal acceptance of the Bible. The Bible he said, “is God’s word written from the very first syllable down to the very last and from the last back to the first.” 

Let me say it as firmly as possible, whenever Christians return to the authority of the whole Bible, they will find the prophecies regarding the nation of Israel and Jerusalem pulling them, duty bound to obey God regarding a love for Israel! Paul had this love for his people when he said in Romans 9 that he wished he could be accursed for the sake of the salvation of his own people, the Jews; when he said in Romans 10 that his heart desire was for their salvation; and in Romans 11 that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of Gentiles has come in and then all Israel will be saved! That is a great prophecy!

A prophetic fact, in 1838 there were only 9,690 Jews in Jerusalem and zero in Tel Aviv! God was about to act! He started the Zionist movement among evangelicals in the 1600’s and among the Jews in the 1800’s. Now Jews were getting into the act to move their fellow countrymen to consider moving back to the land God promised their fathers!

In 1896, Theodore Hertzl made it be known that his nation, the Jews, were planning on going to their ancient homeland, Israel! He wrote the pamphlet entitled, Der Judenstat, the Jewish State. Arrayed against him were the churches, the antisemitic flavor of all of Europe, the movement against the bible in science, universities, and governments bent on liberalism! In evangelical Britain and America, a movement of christians in government and the churches were working to help Jews go home. A big event was about to take place, Jesus was moving by the Spirit in hearts and minds to make prophecy happen! 

The British made it a priority in WW1 to attack the Ottoman Empire through the Middle East, and especially to take Jerusalem. That happened when General Allenby marched into Jerusalem, taking the city from the Muslims! This happened in 1917 and Lord Balfour declared that the land was to go to the Jews. Lord Balfour was a Christian Zionist, God moved his heart to believe and act on doing his part to help establish the state of Israel. At the same time, Satan was raising up his leader, Adolph Hitler. 

Hitler and Satan could not stop the steady march to Israel being established as a nation. God would have His way on May 14, 1948. This provoked the nations to attack Israel and God saved Israel. In 1967 Israel won back territory in the Six Day War, all of Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria. The histoires of the nations are defined by their response to this war. Every nation has rebelled at what God is doing, and I have proof! Here is a list of the UN resolutions regarding that war and let’s start with the big one, Res. 242. That resolution says that Israel has no right to Jerusalem or any land conquered in the war. No to Jerusalem, Jericho, Bethlehem, Shiloh, Shechem, and Bethel. All of them are not Jewish cities and all of them belong to the Palestinians. 

All of the UN resolutions have been crafted to curse Israel and all of them America has either abstained from or voted against. That is until President Trump. What he did was so radical in the eyes of the world that he was made a pariah. He had the audacity to say that Jerusalem was the eternal, undivided, capital of Israel! 

Since that day, many nations have moved their embassies to Jerusalem, Hungary just announced that they will move their embassy to Jerusalem next month. If Satan could not stop God from reestablishing His nation in WW2, what makes people think that God will not fulfill His word regarding Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem? Israel is being pushed to civil war by the Biden Administration and the EU and UN, they think that they are being successful. Even Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah said that Israel is in the process of destroying herself making it easier for them to kill every Jew. Jewish reservists said they would not fight for the nation if Netanyahu brought about judicial reform. 

“Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi (Likud) came out strongly against the IDF reservists who are refusing to attend training in protest of judicial reform,To the impudent [IDF reservist] refusers, I will tell you what Mordechai told Esther: ‘Profit and salvation will arise for the Jews from another place, and your father’s house will be destroyed.’ The people of Israel will manage without you and you will go to hell.”https://www.jpost.com/  

Today starts the feast of Purim. I want to remind everyone to read the book of Esther. As Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, UN, Biden, and the EU, cheer the conflict in Israel, hoping they can destroy Israel, they should remember that God started the nation and God will never leave the nation again! This is the promise of Amos:

“I will also plant them on their land, And they will not again be uprooted from their land

Which I have given them, Says Yahweh your God.” 

Amos 9:15

Magog and Ukraine

Prophecy Update: Magog and Ukraine 3/1/2023

Ezekiel 38-39 tells us about a future war between Russia and Israel. Can the war in Ukraine be setting up that war? There are several factors of the Ukraine-Russia war that are foundational to the future biblical war. The list of factors includes geography, military doctrine, history, and timing. 

“Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.” 

Ezekiel 38:2

Ukraine was part of Russia off and on for over 1000 years. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia has claimed that most of Ukrainian territory belongs to Russia. Ukraine is Magog territory. Putin gave a speech in 2021 in which he taught on the historical union of Ukraine and Russia. One of his main points comes from what happened in 1654. 

“Putin tells that Hmelnitsky requested help from the Russian Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich against the Polish-Lithuanian Union and that many cities such as Kyiv declared their loyalty to the Russian Tsar as a result of the acceptance of the request. This loyalty was determined with the Pereyaslav Agreement in 1654 and the Russian Tsardom fought together with the Zaporozhian Cossacks.”  https://www.ankasam.org/

Putin also teaches that Kiev is the mother of all Russian cities since 900 AD. So for over a thousand years there has been some type of relationship between the peoples in Russia proper and from the west over the Dnieper River. Despite the disintegration of the USSR, as NATO continued to expand, Russian decision-makers perceived this expansion as an aggressive move against them. The USA and NATO are moving to destroy Russia and thus the idea that Russia was the new target of the containment strategy became an important cornerstone in the foreign policy of the Moscow administration. The argument that can be drawn from this discourse is that Moscow is afraid of Ukraine being a staging area for war against them. 

Here is an interesting article from March of 2014 that sheds light on the Ukraine being part of Magog. —”The Allard Pierson archeological museum in Amsterdam is in a bind. Since February 7, it has exhibited “The Crimea, Gold and secrets from the Black Sea,” which it originally billed as “Spectacular archeological finds from the Ukraine.” The reason this report caught my eye is that most of the “Gold and secrets” of Crimea come from the Scythians. Originally from what is today northern Iran, the Scythians were a horse riding tribe that inhabited much of today’s Georgia, Armenia and the southern parts of Ukraine and Russia for close to 1300 years, from the 7th century BC to the 4th century AD. The northern coast of the Black Sea was absolutely Scythian.” https://www.haaretz.com/

The Scythians are the ancient name of the Russians who occupied Ukraine. This is why bible students do not believe the propaganda that Ukraine was never part of Russia, it most certainly will be part of the attack on Israel as part of the Gog Magog prophecy. The Scythians are mentioned in Colossians 3:11. 

“And what’s so special about the Scythians? Well, it turns out that Josephus Flavius, the turncoat Jewish historian who chronicled the Masada saga, had an interesting theory about the Scythians and the lands in which they lived. He concluded that their land was the Magog, as in Gog and Magog, as in the war of Gog and Magog, as in the biblical prelude to the End of Days.” https://www.haaretz.com/  

This is why Russia must gain a great advantage in this war. The Bible leads us to believe that it might include nuclear weapons? 

“And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the coastlands securely; and they will know that I am Yahweh.” 

Ezekiel 39:6

One of the reasons that America does not come to the aid of Israel in this war certainly means that America is weakened. Many Bible teachers have made the suggestion that the fire that comes on Magog and the coastlands, meaning America, may in fact be a nuclear war. So geographically, Ukraine will participate in the Gog Magog war. Also there is military doctrine. Russia has its own way of fighting that does not match the way that America fights. 

Putin is an avowed nationalist who believes in the greatness of Russia. According to Annie Jacobsen’s book on the CIA, “Surprise, Kill, Vanish” and Tim Weiners massive study on the CIA, “Legacy of Ashes”, Russia has determined that the CIA and America have been in Ukraine since 2014 to destroy Russia. Since 1950 covert operations of the CIA were intended to foster regime change. 

JR Nyquist wrote in his book, “The New Tactics of Global War”, (2015) “The sudden emergence of Russian military superiority should surprise no one. This emergence may not be entirely obvious at the moment of this writing, but awareness of a shift in the balance of power is rippling like a shiver through the capitals of Europe.” 

After the fall of the Soviet Union, there was a fear that the Russians had snuck into the United States suitcase nuclear bombs. These suitcase nukes are asymmetrical warfare. The Russians are openly talking about using tactical nukes, one kiloton nukes that will change the course of the war. As Russia preaches that the war in Ukraine is with the USA and NATO and not Ukraine, China and Iran have entered the war. It is turning into WW3 very quickly. This puts the USA on notice that they are now at war with Russia, China, and Iran. 

Nyquist went on to say, “The suit-case nuke comprises such a stealthy threat. A small device that can destroy half a city is an asymmetrical weapon. Plus, despite claims to the contrary the responsible party may not be apparent for days or even weeks after the fact. The supplier of that explosive device and the planners of its usage could be perfectly cloaked within government buildings in Tehran, Pyongyang, Beijing, or Moscow. Nuclear warfare includes the EMP attack on our electric grid.” 

The world is looking at the USA as a hypocrite when they send arms and military personnel to Ukraine and then tell China, you better not send arms to Russia! As Iran and China have entered the war, America is warning everyone to do their will!

“U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken warned China against supplying Russia with arms; his warning mirrors that of the U.K. and other Western countries and is a result of a significant shift in how the U.S. uses its intelligence. Blinken did not specify the measures the U.S. will take if Beijing supplies Moscow with weapons. On Thursday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO intelligence has detected Beijing is in the early stages of shipping arms to Russia and warned it against this.” https://www.sandboxx.us/  

“China on Monday said Washington has “no right” to point fingers at Beijing’s relations with Moscow after the US accused China of “considering sending lethal equipment” to Russia to aid in its war against Ukraine. The US has not only continued to send lethal weapons to the battlefield in Ukraine but also continued to sell weapons to China’s Taiwan region in violation of the Three China-US joint Communiqués. What does the US really want?” Mao asked, according to the Chinese daily Global Times.” https://www.aa.com.tr/ 

Both China and Russia are enemies of the Americans and they both have a desire to destroy our country. This fits the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39. Both China and Russia have written on their strategic goals in destroying the USA. The goal is to infiltrate the USA with their people and allies who hate the USA. Allies like Muslim terrorists and South Americans who hate the USA, ie. Venezuela, Cuba. These people will start terrorist attacks, asymmetrical attacks on our infrastructure such as computer hacking etc. Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia all have plans to use nukes on the American homeland. With the USA out of the way, Russia can attack Israel. 

Israel has a natural ‘hook in the jaw’ to drag Russia into a war: natural gas! Israel possesses enough natural gas to supply Europe with the gas they will not get from Nord Stream 1+2, pipelines that the Americans and NATO blew up. The last time that Russia sent troops to fight Israel was in 1973, the Yom Kippur war.

The Yom Kippur War saw the Soviet Union sending over 300,000 troops towards the war because Israel had so decisively wiped out the Egyptian and Syrian army. Some reports say that the Russians were 10 miles from Damascus before turning back. Israel has once again become a great enemy of Russia by agreeing to help Ukraine. Putin is ticked at Israel and has made more threats to Israel in the last six months then in the last ten years.  

“New York Times says 300,000 artillery shells to be sent to Kyiv’s forces from American supplies kept in Israel for emergency use. Israeli officials told the Times that Jerusalem had not altered its position against giving Ukraine lethal weapons, but was agreeing to the US using its own supplies. Israel has resisted providing weapons to Ukraine since the start of Russia’s invasion. One major reason for Israel’s hesitance appears to be its strategic need to maintain freedom of operations in Syria, where Russian forces largely control the airspace. The US stockpile in Israel dates back to the Yom Kippur War in 1973.”  https://www.timesofisrael.com/ 

During the Yom Kippur war, it was the first time that we went to Defcon 1 and had bombers in the air. Nukes were ready to fly before things calmed down. Today, all of the history of this has been scrubbed from the internet, they never talk about how close we were to all out nuclear war. If the Soviets were ready to go to war for their client Arab states in 1973, how much more are they willing to go to war for Iran? I think that the current ramp up for Israel to attack Iran will also be a hook in the jaw. Iran is getting ready to make their own nukes, Israel has said they have no choice but to attack. Russia will not be happy when this happens. 

One little known fact is that Syria, Turkey, and Lebanon are dealing with problems with their ports. This current earthquake has done such damage that Syria and Turkey are having real problems with their ports on the Mediterranean. Lebanon blew up their port a few years ago and has not recovered. Israel has the best chance of shipping gas, material, and whatever you need. This is not making the Muslims happy since their theft of Israeli gas has been halted by these tragedies. God has set the stage for the Gog Magog war this past week like we have never seen, look up and be a watchman on the wall my friends!
