The tension between Russia and the United States is growing by the hour. These headlines will give an idea of how tense things are:

Thursday, June 16: Russian Jets Bomb US Backed Rebels after US told Russia to Stop — Fox News

Thursday, June 16:  US will Patrol Black Sea Despite Russian Warnings — Time

Thursday, June 16:  Vladimir Putin Has Everything He Needs to Blackmail Hillary Clinton — The Observer

Saturday, June 18: Tensions between Us/NATO and Russia are Flaring Dangerously  — Zero Hedge

The US and NATO continually poke the Bear—‘Russia’ and one commentator said, “We risk open war with Russia, I wish this were idle speculation. But if you haven’t been paying attention, you will probably be shocked at just how much direct military and diplomatic provocation has been going on between NATO and Russia over the past few years and especially the past few weeks.”

If you are not ready mentally, physically, spiritually, for war with Russia, you should get ready.

One blogger wrote a piece called, A Russian Warning and it warned, “If there is going to be open war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed and most of us will be dead.” This blog has gone viral all over Europe and is making its rounds in the USA.

The US and her NATO allies have done a lot to isolate Russia these past few years since Russia took the Crimea in 2014.  It has been noted by many that the Russians feel like the USA is at war with them. Listen to this quote from today:

The US leadership has done everything it could to push the situation to the brink of disaster. First, its anti-Russian policies have convinced the Russian leadership that making concessions or negotiating with the West is futile. It has become apparent that the West will always support any individual, movement or government that is anti-Russian, be it tax-cheating Russian oligarchs, convicted Ukrainian war criminals, Saudi-supported Wahhabi terrorists in Chechnya or cathedral-desecrating punks in Moscow.

Now that NATO, in violation of its previous promises, has expanded right up to the Russian border, with US forces deployed in the Baltic states, within artillery range of St. Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, the Russians have nowhere left to retreat. They will not attack; nor will they back down or surrender.

This year the US has been placing more and more troops in the Baltic States and Poland, as well as military equipment on her borders. Russia claims that the US can now bomb St. Petersburg with artillery. This is stunning!

As Russian jets continue to buzz our ships and planes in the Black Sea, Russia is warning America to get back. The threats of war are being thrown about by the big boys and it is just a matter of time before they fight or back down. So far, the US will not back down. Another headline today is shocking:

U.S. State Department Officials Call for Strikes Against Syria’s AssadWall Street Journal June 16, 2016

BEIRUT—Dozens of State Department officials this week protested against U.S. policy in Syria, signing an internal document that calls for targeted military strikes against the Damascus government and urging regime change as the only way to defeat Islamic State.

This Wall Street journal article is alarming because it calls for open war with Russia in Syria. As Russia is determined to fight the groups that the US and Europe back, we are already at war with Russia, we are on opposite sides of the Syrian conflict. They said,

“In other words, there are 51 insane people (a least) in the US State Department that think attacking Russia directly would be a swell idea.”

Russia plays prominently in the Gog Magog war, I do not see the USA in any prophecies. Makes you wonder! Pray for revival my friends.

About Joe

We live in the last days and the Bible commands us to watch for the Lord’s coming. I have a keen interest in history, prophecy and current events. I read widely about political and military developments and write a weekly blog from the things I follow. My special interest is in Middle Eastern affairs.

Since I was in college, I have also studied how God judges nations. It all started in Buck Hatches’ class at Columbia Bible College in 1979.

I fell in love with God’s word and especially the prophets. The results of this interest led me to writing The ‘I’ Judgements: Four Sins that Bring about the Fall of Nations. It serves as a warning to the United States, showing biblically of what we need to repent.
