Russian Annexation of Crimea An Ominous Development for Israel

I wanted to know what Scripture has stated about the recent annexation of Crimea by Russia, and I located an article which lays out the larger picture in broad simple and sweeping terms. I have cited the entire essay below.

American leaders have been foolishly lulled into complacency by their assumption that the old cold war days are over, when in fact, Russia has been making covert, strategic moves in earnest to rebuild their military to a point of superiority over Western forces, while two Mideast wars have dragged our own military into disrepair and philosophical disillusionment.

Our far-left leaning president, Barack Obama, has further eroded our credibility among world leaders during his tenure in office. Putin made his move at a moment when he well knew that most likely, western military forces would not put boots on the ground to oppose him. Whether that changes in the next few years, we will see. At the date of this post, there are now 20,000 Russian troops on the ground, massed along the eastern and southern border of the Ukraine. Should Putin choose to begin to march them into eastern Ukraine, truthfully, there would be scant opposition on the ground capable of thwarting a forward push.

Vladimir Putin has made a sudden and bold opportunistic move in western Russia which puts his military just a little bit closer to being capable of a southern invasion of Israel, which is exactly what Ezekiel 38 and 39 states will eventually take place.

Here’s the article. Please feel free to share it on your own social networks.

Russia will invade Israel in the end times

By Don Koenig

The scriptures indicate that a northern army will invade Israel in the last days. Bible scholars have traced the tribes and have determined that this northern army is led by tribes that have settled in Russia. This prophecy has never been fulfilled so it will be fulfilled in the future.

The details of this invasion from the north are given in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. The allies that come with this northern invader are named by nation (tribe). Today most of these nations are Islamic and are enemies of Israel. Ezekiel even lists the countries that will question the reason for this invasion. These nations seem to be nations that come out of the old British Empire and oil rich nations aligned with the West. Ezekiel mentions these nations as Tarshish, all her young lions (English speaking nations), Sheba and Dedan (Saudi Arabia Kuwait). The alignment of nations predicted in Ezekiel is the alignment that we see in that region today. God said He will destroy this northern army that comes against Israel and by doing so He will magnify Himself and become known to many nations.

It says in Ezekiel that at the time of this invasion God will send fire on Magog (Russia) and those that dwell securely in the isles (or coast lands), and from that day they shall know that the God of Israel exists.

Russia is moving toward superpower status again and a new dictatorship

Russia has emerged out of the depression it was in for many years after the fall of the Soviet Union. New growth in the economy due to Russia’s rich natural resources will soon bring Russia back to superpower status again. Nationalism, lawlessness and anti-Semitism are rising today in Russia. Most of the former Soviet bloc leaders of the old Soviet Union have come back into power. Over fifty percent of the positions of power in Russia including Putin are former KGB officers.

They lament the fall of the old Soviet Union and they wish to form a new union of nations led by Russia. Putin recently announced that there will be a new Eurasian union and it is expect to be in place by 2014.

There is no longer freedom of speech in Russia. TV and other media are once again government controlled and enemies often end up dead. The new steps taken by Putin to regain centralized control is leading to a dictatorship.

Russia continues to modernize its nuclear weapons and to prepare underground facilities in case of war. Russia has successfully developed a new long range missile that can change directions after launch. These missiles can successfully penetrate the antimissile system shield that is being developed by the United States.

Russia also has strategic ties to regional Islamic countries. Russia is actively aiding Iran in building nuclear power plants that will giver Iran nuclear material for nuclear weapons. The Arab/Islamic countries have one common enemy and at some point they will try to rid themselves of the Israeli presence with Russia as their protector.

The prophecies in Ezekiel 38 and 39 indicate that God will put a hook in the jaw of Russia and bring her down against the land of Israel in the latter years.

The hook could very well be the defense pacts and economic agreements that Russia has established with Syria, Iran and other Islamic nations. In the battle described in Ezekiel, Russia will be the leader of a regional coalition against Israel.

Until this battle Russia will continue to be a world military superpower

The United States had been dismantling its nuclear capability as if Russia were no longer a world threat but Russia’s nuclear submarine and missile capability has been modernized and is quite capable of destroying the United States or any adversary. Scripture says that this army from the north will be splendidly attired. This could mean that they will be equipped with every conceivable weapon. Russia still has a large population of educated scientists that could develop formidable military weapons very quickly if that becomes their paramount concern and national focus.

Some think the United States and Russia are no longer a threat to each other, yet Russia almost always takes a position that is contrary to the national security interests of the United States.

Russia exports nuclear technology and advanced weapons of war that they know will be used against the United States, Israel, and the West.

Russia has a world agenda that willfully arms Islamic fascism and rogue dictators to carry out warfare against the West. The major world powers enabling Islamic fascism and other nations confessing hatred toward the United States are Russia and China. Although Russia and Western leaders announced the end of the cold war after the fall of the Soviet Union the recent actions and rhetoric of Russia indicate that the cold war continues.

Signs of the time

Russia is following in the footsteps of Germany before the second World War. National pride and the memory of the empire they once had is now compelling them to rebuild a strong military under an authoritative leader. Putin stepped aside as President for a few years and took the number two position but at the next election he will almost certainly become president of Russia until the time of the Ezekiel war. Putin is gaining more power all the time and he has specifically stated that his primary goal is to bring Russia to world superpower status again.

If we assume that it will take Russia about 10 to 15 years to accomplish the reestablishment of a first class military, it probably is no coincidence that the same amount of time is needed for the Arab/Islamic block to become a real nuclear military threat to Israel.

They will indeed join forces in this battle when Russia invades Israel as Ezekiel prophesied over twenty-five hundred years ago. All indications are that the battle against Israel that is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and the supernatural defeat of these forces by God will take place in this generation.

House Stenographer Diane Reidy Tries to Warn Congress: “God Will Not Be Mocked” & “No Man Can Serve Two Masters”

Of course it does not surprise me that Congressional leaders had long time house stenographer Diane Reidy removed from chambers and sent to have her head examined. We live in an age where spirit led prophesies are called “rants” and bearing witness to the inner call of the Holy Spirit makes one “delusional.” I do believe that Ms. Reidy was trying to say something of urgent importance to Congress, but she was removed before she could finish her comments. I consider what she said to be completely sane and sound. It’s Congress whom I think needs it’s collective head examined:

Pastor Steve Cioccolanti, the pastor of Discover Church , Melbourne, Australia, has published a “Warning” video about 8 Super-Signs in the Heavens. You will be shocked to see the signs that he shows that are, according to him, what God has written about in the Bible. Talking about the Hebrew roots of end time prophecies, he points to 8 signs that might be seen until and before 70th Birthday of Israel. Why 70 is important? He explains: “Because Israel was given 70 years in Babylonian captivity and 70 years from the time that Jesus was born to the time when its temple was destroyed.” “So there is something important that is the fact that Israel is about to turn 70 years old since it was born again in 1948.” And here are the 8 signs, along with some observations about the date. And he affirms, “they will never occur again in your life time” and they “will start soon.”

1-Comet Ison (Nov 28, 2013) – NASA said is a comet as bright as the moon and it is predict to come in November 2013.

2-Blood Moon (April 15, 2014) – War tetrad is coming in April in 2014

3-Blood Moon (Oct 08, 2014) – Sukkot

4-Total Solar (March 20, 2015) – Sign for Gentiles

5-Blood Moon (April 4, 2015) – Passover

6- Partial Solar (Sept 13, 2015) Elul 29 Culce Tishri 1 Civil New 7th Anniversary since last market crash

Alternative News Reporters Ponder Significance of Comet Ison and Wormwood

“Nobody will recognize the signs on the sand.” – Nostradamus

I am looking into any and everything I can find these days about Comet Ison. I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry, and the MSM is ignoring the topic of comet Ison. I found some VERY interesting material to ponder in the videos posted below.  The videographer who discussed the bible codes he found on comet  Ison also made mention of Revelation 8.

Let’s look at what that verses say in the KJV [ see below ]. One video reveals the bible codes on Comet Ison and all the other words and phrases which occur in the same block of scripture:

Wormwood

Ison

The Famine

Harvest

Calamity

Poison

666

In a speculative scenario, knowing as we all well know that many of the governments of the world cannot be trusted to do right by their citizens and to WARN them of science and astronomy that is known to the elites, but suppressed from public perusal, supposing that we all agree that it’s quite well established that the government will suppress or censor information which it feels might lead to public panic, hoarding, rioting, runs on banks, civil unrest, et al – what IF comet Ison was a more serious threat than we have been lead to believe and what IF the governments of the world were suppressing this fact?

What IF it were finally left up to us, the “meek” – to warn each other about possible future events on our world which might threaten our safety, including celestial events which are beyond all human control, still yet to come, which may bring harm? I am completely aware that I may be wrong and that the passing of Comet Ison may turn out to be as big of a non-event as 12.21.2012. But something keeps me looking, watching reports, reading and studying the material that others have researched as well. The Bible has been eerily correct in predicting event after event, for hundreds of years.

What is Revelation 8 trying to tell us? Is there a relationship between Revelation 8 and comet Ison? That’s what I want to know. That’s why I am posting what I learn.  This is Revelation 8: 1-13:

Rev 8:1

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
Rev 8:2
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
Rev 8:3
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Rev 8:4
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
Rev 8:5
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Rev 8:6
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
Rev 8:7

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
Rev 8:8

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
Rev 8:9
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
Rev 8:10

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
Rev 8:11
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Rev 8:12

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Rev 8:13
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

A Significant Man and A Prominent Movement to Watch in Turkey

The Holy Spirit instructed me to begin watching this man [ see him speak in the first video below ] about 4-5 years ago, when I was heavily involved in news blogging. I had already been researching the end times and the Advent of the final Son of Perdition for more than 20 years before that. I am not making any sort of prediction about this man specifically [ Harun Yahya ]. But there is a distinct vibration about him, his organization and the people who surround him that leads me to believe he will be a significant player in the near future regarding the identification of the personage of the Imam Mahdi and his introduction to the world. I am asking my readers to keep their eyes on Turkey, and to investigate every news story which they can find about various events within the Turkish military.

“We speak of the way of the Mahdi. I know what I am talking about.”

- Adnan Aktar aka Harun Yahya

Links:

http://harunyahya.org/

http://harunyahya.tv/

https://www.youtube.com/user/HarunYahyaEnglish/videos

As a further example of how complicated and fraught with delusion the topic of “Imam Mahdi” has become, there are numerous individuals out there who have already either proclaimed themselves the “Mahdi” or have been proclaimed as such by their followers. This link leads to a website featuring a man who claims he is the Imam Mahdi.

My deepest spiritual gut tells me that as the time grows ever closer for the final Son of Perdition to appear on the world scene there will soon be such an abundance of websites, new cults, “fake Mahdis’ and smoke, mirrors erupting out of the Mideast that it will become quite clear that obfuscation of the real person is part of the movement of the Mahdi itself. Pause to consider why this would be needed and you will understand how difficult the task is for American Christians and Christians around the world who are watching world events with a prayerful eye.

Other Helpful Clues

If an American citizen reporter wanted to try to research and report on who the actual real Mahdi might be, and when he might be introduced to the world stage  – then he or she might want to learn all that they could about the vast business holdings, promotions and marketing deals being made by the richest man in the Mideast, Prince Al Walid [ or Al Waleed ] Bin Talal. Talal owns a media empire which sprawls across the Mideast and dominates the airwaves of TV and radio. Who and what he promotes would be helpful to know about in the next 2-3 years. Below is a video about the Prince.

North Korea Ups the Ante on War on Christian ‘Good Friday’

[ Re-posted from http://21stcenturyscreenshots.wordpress.com ]

“…. Hopefully what will occur is that cooler heads will prevail…. and this will de-escalate.” – US Senator Bob Corker

The ongoing game of “military bluff” between  US and North Korea military leaders is getting deadlier by the day, and neither side seems to be backing down.

We all know what the deadly game of “chicken” is all about, when two speeding vehicles are facing head on, trained upon one another on a collision course, traveling at break neck speed, and the first vehicles to veer away from the imminent head on collision is the “chicken”.

It would appear that’s where we are here. I’m not comfortable with it, and I wasn’t thrilled to learn that the head of our own military command is not actually sure “how our actions [ US Stealth bomber SE Asia fly-over 3.28.2013 ] are being interpreted in North Korea” by Jong Eun. Isn’t that like tossing a weapon into the air then wondering right before you catch it  “…wow, I hope this thing’s not loaded ….”

Can our nation afford the luxury of not knowing how this week’s stealth bomber fly-over of North Korean targets would be interpreted by an unhinged, untried, untested young lunatic head-of-state in North Korea? Judging from recent propaganda videos which are emerging from North Korea, the North Korean people are already being whipped up into a frenzy to go to all out war with South Korea and the US.  This has to be a nerve wracking time to be living in South Korea. The video below appears to portray an invasion of South Korea by the North, among other things.

Cited:  “Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the North’s ruling communist party, said that with “the ceasefire agreement blown apart… no one can predict what will happen from now on”.

Voiding the armistice theoretically paves the way for a resumption of hostilities, as the two Koreas never signed a formal peace treaty and remain technically at war.

“The North is giving the impression it wants to put things back to where they were 60 years ago,” said Yang Moo-Jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

Experts point out that North Korea has declared the ceasefire dead or obsolete nearly a dozen times in the past 20 years.”

It’s way past time to de-escalate this ongoing war game and ratchet down the growing tensions. Let’s please NOT let this ongoing military PR show get to the point where Jong Eun actually believes that a pre-emptive strike on US soil is a thinkable, doable action that his nation can survive.

Is there anyone anywhere out there in foreign policy [ WHERE is John Kerry right now? ] land who can remind Jong Eun of what will happen to his nation if they let loose a missile trained onto the United States? There are millions of innocent lives at stake here.  Hello???

North Korea plan to attack US mainland revealed in photographs

North Korea has revealed its plans to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States in photos taken in Kim Jong-un‘s military command centre.

North Korea has revealed its plans to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States in photos taken in Kim Jong-un's military command centre.

12:08PM GMT 29 Mar 2013

The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an “emergency meeting” early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea’s strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.

The images show a chart marked “US mainland strike plan” and missile trajectories that the NK News web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and what they claim is Austin, Texas.

The text on the map, which shows the west coast of North America, says “Plan to hit the U.S. mainland”

The meeting of Pyongyang’s senior military leaders was called after two US B2 bombers, flying out of bases in Missouri, carried out simulated bombing raids on North Korean targets on an island off the coast of South Korea.

“He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets, ordering them to be on standby to fire so that they may strike any time the US mainland, its military bases in the operational theatres in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea,” the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

It added that the B2 test flights demonstrated Washington’s “hostile intent” and said the “reckless” act had gone “beyond the phase of threat and blackmail.”

The North’s military was placed on its highest alert level earlier this week and a hotline link with the South Korean military was severed.

North Korea has also cut the mobile Internet link for foreign visitors, only weeks after the 3G service was introduced.

North Koreans have held a rally at Kim Il-sung Square in central Pyongyang in support of military actionDespite the increasingly belligerent rhetoric and new images emerging from the North Korean regime, analysts believe its missiles are not capable of striking targets as far away as the US mainland and are not, as yet, capable of delivering a nuclear payload.

The images of Kim surrounded by his officers and diagrams of targets in the US are designed for a domestic consumption and to demonstrate the young leader’s mastery of military affairs, experts believe.

Plague of Locusts Descends on Egypt, Creates Panic in Israel

As if out of the pages of the Book of Revelation, this unnerving breaking news story from the UK based news website Mail Online was posted on March 4th. I have re-blogged it below for subscribers. As the Papal conclave selects a new Pope [ Will he be the last Pope?] look what is happening close by in Egypt and Israel:

Locust alert in Middle East as plague descends on Egypt and creates panic in Israel

  • Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline and task force
  • The swarm is estimated to be made up of 30million insects
  • The infestation has been devastating crops in Egypt ahead of Passover

By Alex Ward

PUBLISHED: 10:31 EST, 4 March 2013 | UPDATED: 11:04 EST, 4 March 2013

As swarms of locust devour Egyptian crops, the Middle East is bracing for the destructive bugs to migrate their way ahead of the Passover holiday.

A swarm of an estimated 30million insects has been devastating crops in Egypt, fuelling apocalyptic fears because of the infestation’s proximity to the Bible story of Passover in which a swarm of locusts, the eighth of ten plagues, is imposed on Egyptians by God for enslaving and abusing ancient Hebrews.

Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline today and urged residents to be vigilant in reporting sightings of the insects to prevent an outbreak.

Swarms descending: A swarm of an estimated 30million locust has descended on Egypt (including these insects seen over the Al-Mogattam district of Cairo) as Israel braces for the infestation to head their waySwarms descending: A swarm of an estimated 30million locust has descended on Egypt (including these insects seen over the Al-Mogattam district of Cairo) as Israel braces for the infestation to head their way

A special task force has also been set up to help farmers manage infestations.

The locusts pass through the country as part of their normal migration from north east Sudan to Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian Agriculture Ministry said, emphasizing that Egypt was just ‘a transfer station’ for the locusts, which were in larger numbers this year.

As the insects descended on agricultural farms in Giza and in Cairo, causing significant damage, fears have been raised that they could spread to Israel.

In a statement from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, the infestation was described as a ‘immature swarm’ which ‘appeared in the afternoon (on March 2) in the eastern Cairo districts of New Cairo and Mokattam and dispersed into several smaller swarmlets’.

The statement read: ‘The locusts originated from breeding that has been in progress since November in southeast Egypt between Berenice and the Sudanese border.

‘As vegetation dried out, small groups and swarms of immature adults moved slowly north along the Red Sea coast, reaching Marsa Alam on 8 February, Hurghada on the 16th and Zafarana on the 26th.’

As well as Israel, Lebanon and Jordan have been alerted.

In Cairo, people were burning tyres to create black smoke to deter the locust from settling and there were reports that swarms had been seen in Zafarana, about 124 miles from Cairo, on the Red Sea and in the city of Qena, where the insects have been sighted in at least three villages.

According to the Israel National News, the Egyptian Agriculture Minister Dr Salah Abd Al Mamon said: ‘Egyptian armed forces and border guards are attempting to fight the swarm with all means at their disposal.

‘I ask the families living in the locust-plagues areas not to burn tyres. This does not chase away the locusts, but only causes damage and could ignite largescale fires that would cost in lives.’

He said that strong winds were predicted in weather forecasts and he hoped that this would force the insects to migrate toward the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia. Crop duster planes were also going to be used to handle the infestation.

Egypt and Israel was infested with locust in 2004. Israeli agriculture officials sent crop dusters into the air to spray against the locusts that swept in from North Africa in the first such invasion since 1959.

The Egyptian Agriculture Ministry said that the locusts pass through the country as part of their normal migration from north east Sudan to Saudi Arabia, reaffirming that Egypt is just 'a transfer station' for the locustsThe Egyptian Agriculture Ministry said that the locusts pass through the country as part of their normal migration from north east Sudan to Saudi Arabia, reaffirming that Egypt is just ‘a transfer station’ for the locusts

Farmers in 15 out of the 27 Egyptian governorates suffered significant agricultural damage as the insects devoured crops and flowers.

This year Passover will begin on the evening of March 25 and end on the evening of April 2.

The infestation comes as a study warns that yellow-legged Asian hornets that prey on bees are among the latest non-native species threatening UK wildlife, and even people’s health.

A growing number of alien species, from killer shrimps to Spanish slugs, are set to soon reach our shores, a Europe-wide study warns.

The Asian hornet, which grows to between 2.5cm and 3cm (1-1.2 inches), preys on native honeybees, wasps and other pollinators, potentially devastating hives and threatening honey and crop production.

 

#MyJihad Advertising Campaign On City Buses Exhorts Muslims to Do Violence on American Streets

Talk about your “advertising PR campaign TOP epic fails” – OMG.  – Chase Kyla Hunter

Add to today’s news the latest abomination appearing on America streets: city buses which display “My Jihad” adverts. I can only assume that Americans everywhere – and especially residents of the cities where these ads are appearing, will be outraged enough to gather and peacefully storm local city hall meetings to demand that the outrageously offensive “hate advertising” be pulled and prohibited. Any lame excuses made by politically correct Muslims that these horrific ads are an effort to “re-introduce” Muslims to America via PR is utter nonsense and needs to be immediately and powerfully refuted as such.

I can read. I can comprehend clearly how the message of these ads will speak to an already radicalized American or immigrant Muslim, urging he or she to act on their urges to hurt and harm Christians on American city streets. Pull this outrageously offensive and preposterously misguided ad campaign immediately, before someone gets hurt or killed over it.

Cited:  “The ads are already up in Chicago (with more there to come). And they will be up in San Francisco and Washington, DC next week.”
