Hello to all my subscribers:
Today is July 10th 2015. I haven’t posted much to this blog for several years, as I was told in Spirit to withdraw and take care of many personal concerns in my life which urgently needed attention. But I have not ceased watching and praying about the times we are living in, spending many late nights researching and quietly documenting world events.
Today I decided I should post an update. Back in 2011-2012 I began to pray and query the Holy Spirit urgently concerning what I should watch for in the Mideast concerning the coming rise of the Son of Perdition. I believe this person whom the KJV Holy Bible names as “the Son of Perdition” is the same person whom the Islamic world names as the coming Imam Mahdi.
I was always told by Spirit when I prayed about this topic the same reply each time: to “watch Turkey” and to “watch Israel” – specifically, in Turkey, for the consolidation of lesser political powers in the Islamic world, and for the emergence of new political alliances which would consolidate all power in Islam. I was also told to keep my eye on peculiar new developments within the military of Turkey. I’d like to state in this post that I have never been told in prayer or meditation that Turkey’s Erdogan was or is the Son of Perdition. What I do sense, however, is that there is a person who has long been hovering in the shadows of his regime who seeks to come forward in his own right. He may be a military man in the Turkish army or related. I cannot corroborate any of these intuitions, but here they are. If they are helpful, excellent. Beyond that, I do not feel comfortable relaying anything else.
Regarding Israel, I was told to watch for sudden news regarding the rebuilding of the Temple and the whirling political power struggle around same.
I have kept all of this information to myself for many years. We live in a time where literally tens of thousands of self-anointed prophets, seers, and predictors are pouring information forth at such an alarming rate that it is almost impossible to make sense of it. I see this as being of Satan’s design. To literally attempt to ‘bury the masses’ in oceans of predictions, prophecies, teachings and ‘isms’ is an excellent way to disenfranchise billions of people, and to confuse their souls to such an extent that they cease looking for the truth at all. I have had that very same experience, while trying to sift through the sheer volume of ‘end time’ material which now pours onto the internet daily. I have great compassion for anyone who loves God, who cares about the outcome, and who is trying to seek the truth and understand it. I wouldn’t ever want to add to the confusing melee.
But today I found some video reports which seem to confirm what the Holy Spirit told me to watch for at least 3-4 years back, and also indicate that world events are fast-moving toward a new phase in the unfolding cycles of long foretold “end times” events. Below are several of those videos. There is another disturbing video clip online which I have known about for many years, but I will not publish it as I don’t want to draw more attention to the manifestation of the Mahdi in physical form which was recorded and documented in that clip. Trust me on this. After I saw the clip years back, it took me weeks to get over it. I won’t publish it and the person who took the video footage was not educated and no idea what it was they were capturing in that recording. It took place late at night in the Mideast. I’m not even sure if the person who recorded the clip and posted it realized what it was that he was posting. The people who were present when the manifestation took place appeared to fall into a trance and they swayed back and forth senselessly like zombies in front of it. It was very troubling.
Pray for our world, for all life, for Christian people everywhere and seek God with all your body, mind, heart and Spirit.

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.

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.
