Prophecy Update: Why Russia invaded Ukraine 12/7/2022

The two most important prophetic scriptures that bear on what is happening today are the scriptures describing the return of Israel to her land, and the scriptures describing the wars that will ensue over that return. At the heart of the wars are Russia and the Islamic nations surrounding Israel. Here is a very important verse regarding the return of Israel:

“Behold, days are coming,” declares Yahweh, When the plowman will overtake the reaper And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; When the mountains will drip sweet wine And all the hills will melt. Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel, And they will rebuild the desolated cities and live in them; They will also plant  vineyards and drink their wine And make gardens and eat their fruit. 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 9:13-15

Notice how God says Israel will never be uprooted from the land. The UN and a host of nations believe otherwise! Russia took center stage in American leftist circles when they were blamed for the election of Donald Trump. Since that time, Russia has increasingly seen the need to go to war with the USA and Israel. The USA has so much influence over Israel that the Russians see them as a vassal state of America. The socialist left in America is enamored with their power over Israel and many of her leaders. The election of Benjamin Netanyahu has changed everything. We must understand Putin as a Russian leader, understand what drives him so that we can see clearly why many believe he is the end times leader called Gog in Ezekiel 38. 

Two authors who have written important books regarding Putin are Garry Kasparov and Rebekah Koffler. Kasparov was the Soviet chess champion and youngest world  champion at the age of 22 (1985). In March 2005 he founded the United Civil Front in Russia, a group dedicated to free and fair elections in Russia. Kasparov wrote “Winter is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the enemies of the free world must be stopped.” 

Rebekah Koffler wrote, “Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s secret plan to defeat America.” Koffler is a Russian born US intelligence expert and worked for both the CIA and DIA. Her insight into the machinations of Russian military plans is awesome. Based on these two books, we can get a very clear picture of Russia’s goals and how they intend to destroy America and Israel. We will start in 2007 and I will be sharing thoughts from these two books throughout the update:

“2007 Munich Security Conference, the speech in which Putin told us who he was.  In February 2007, Putin stood in Munich’s Bayerischer Hof for 30 minutes and accused the United States of creating a unipolar world “in which there is one master, one sovereign.” He added, “at the end of the day this is pernicious.” https://www.politico.com/

Even before 2007, Putin has accused NATO and the USA of waging illegitimate wars and desiring to destroy Russia. The fact that Russia believes that America wages illegitimate wars caused them to militarily enter Syria in 2015, at the request of Bashir Assad, dictator of Syria, to counter the desire of the USA to replace Bashir Assad. Under the leadership of President Barack Obama, the CIA planned the removal of Assad of Syria which Obama announced to the world at the UN on Sept.15, 2015. He said, “US President Barack Obama says the United States is willing to work with Russia and Iran to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power.” https://www.bbc.com/

President Obama made the prediction that Assad would be gone and it never happened because Russia entered Syria to help Assad stay in power.  Obama’s people saw Russia as weak, a regional power, without military ability to enter either Crimea or Syria in 2015. Wrong on both accounts and Obama fired anyone who saw otherwise. They fired five Russian experts at the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) because they would not go along with the lies of Obama. So, blame Russia for the loss of Hilary Clinton. This is still part of the campaign to destroy Russia! DISINFORMATION!  

This may sound very familiar to you in 2022 what was being said about Putin in 2015. Obama said that Putin is irrational, delusional, and counters his long term interests by going into Syria. Condolezza Rice said that Putin was wholly irrational and that there was a five percent chance that he was delusional. America falsely believes that if they get rid of Putin, all of their problems with Russia will be gone. I say our leaders are delusional. 

Putin is shaped by his parents. His dad was a NKVD officer (internal security officer), a soldier in WW2, and his mom almost died in the siege of Leningrad by the Germans in 1941 to 1944. His older brother died in the siege of Leningrad. Putin was a street fighter and ended up a black belt in Judo, he was Judo champion of Leningrad in 1976. His playbook for war includes these instruments of war, and I might add, they are advanced beyond where America stands at this moment in history: space warfare, cyber-attacks, spy craft,  special activities known as “active measures’ meaning do whatever it takes to destroy your enemy, and nuclear warfare. The Russians do not believe in personal rights and they do not have a problem with killing civilians. Civilians are committed to their nation’s wars so kill them…that’s the Russian way!

Putin has seen and has made the calculation that the color revolutions in Ukraine Orange 2015, Georgia Rose 2003, and Kyrgyzstan Tulip 2005, are coming to Moscow. The one in Ukraine is the red line for Putin.  The minute that we made clear to Putin that Ukraine would be in NATO, that is when the fate of Ukraine was sealed. Putin needs to bring his troops into Ukraine because that is Biblically Magog territory. The army in Ukraine and western Russia will turn south and invade Israel. That is the Biblical war called Gog Magog! Being in Syria since 2015 puts Russia and Iran right on the northern border of Israel (Golan Heights). When Russia came into Syria, they had another reason to go, the Russian Orthodox Church. Barack Obama funded the systematic killing of Christians in Syria since 2011.

“In the summer of 2011, when President Obama announced his Syrian regime-change policy, roughly 3,000 people had died as a result of the “Arab Spring” uprising, according to the UN. Now, when President Trump finally has terminated the arms shipments, nearly half a million Syrians have died. Another 6.3 million have been internally displaced, while roughly the same number have been driven abroad, with millions still in their own homes reduced to utter destitution. Among the targeted victims are Christians and other religious minorities. While Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed in 2016 that the religious cleansing of Christians, Yezidis and Shiites and others in Iraq and Syria was “genocide,” his declaration was limited only to the atrocities committed by the Islamic State. It did not acknowledge the inconsistency of arming, directly or indirectly, anti-democratic Sunni jihadists as proxies among our U.S.-backed rebel forces in Syria.” https://csi-usa.org/  

When Russia came to Syria, the Christians were being massacred. Putin likes to boast that he saved the Christians, at least the Eastern Orthodox Christains. “Putin has played the religious card for geopolitical gain. In doing so, he has used Syria and the Orthodox angle to win influence over much of the Middle East. When Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Damascus to meet his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad, in January 2020, it was viewed as a significant entrenchment of Russian support for Assad – more precisely Eastern Christians, but also the Greek Orthodox Church – saw the two leaders’ lighting of candles on Orthodox Christmas Day as a much-needed boost to Christianity. Putin himself had also crafted this portrayal, in conjunction with the Russian Orthodox Church, which openly blessed his war in Syria.” https://www.middleeasteye.net/

  As Christians are wiped out in the Middle East by Jihadists and Fascists, Putin claims to be the protector of the Christians. Europe has heard that message over and over again the last few years. The message from Russia is that America is no longer Chrstian. Even the war in Ukraine is couched in Christian language, America is the antichrist and Russia is standing for true Christianity. It is true that America is antichristian but Russia is not exactly standing for true Christianity. Trump saw the problem and did this:

“President Donald Trump has ordered the C.I.A. to end its covert arming and training of anti-government rebels in Syria, according to anonymous “officials” cited by the Washington Post. Since 2011, when President Barack Obama declared in 2011 that Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad must “step aside“ to make way for a “democratic transition,” weapons supplied by the United States poured into the hands of Syria’s anti-government rebels. One former U.S. official quoted by the New York Times described the flow as a “cataract of weaponry.” The better part of it reached the hands of Sunni jihadist-dominated armed groups that brutally imposed discriminatory sharia law and engaged in religious cleansing wherever they controlled territory.” https://csi-usa.org/   

Unfortunately, all that Trump did to protect Christains in the Middle East has been undone by President Biden. Biden has also had the audacity to undo the Trump plan to protect the national electric grid. A major emphasis of Russian and Chinese military doctrine to defeat the US! 

“If anything, the Biden Administration has put the electric grid at greater risk over the past two years. On his first day in office, Biden suspended Executive Order 13920 (securing the U.S. bulk-power system) which declared “a national emergency with respect to the threat to the United States bulk power system,” and warned “that foreign adversaries are increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the United States bulk-power system. President Trump issued E.O. 13920 in response to the discovery in 2019 of hardware back doors built into Chinese-made transformers that are critical to the grid’s operations.  According to Latham Saddler, the former Director of Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council in Trump Administration, “they found hardware that was put into that that had the ability for somebody in China to switch it off.” https://centerforsecuritypolicy.org/  

What happened yesterday Dec.5th is another of the hooks in the jaw of Russia to go to war with Israel. Israel is being blamed for the attack on a Russian airbase 1000 kilometers from Ukraine. Russia claims that Israel supplied the Ukrainians with the drones that attacked and killed 3 Russian soldiers in Russia. Ukraine said on Dec.5th that they had a drone that could go 1000 kilometers, nobody believed them. Now they do, but the dirty little secret is where they got the drones from? Russia is saying Israel! Another reason that Russia is in Ukraine, to speed up the Gog Magog prophecy!

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.
