Is Vladimir Putin Gog?Daymond Duck

God foretold a great battle that will take place when three conditions exist (Ezek. 38-39):When the latter years and latter days have arrived (Ezek. 38:8, 16); when Jews have returned to the Promised Land from many Nations (Ezek. 38:8); when the Jews are dwelling safely (Ezek. 38:8, 11).

All three of these conditions exist right now (Israel is dwelling under God’s protection).

This great battle will be led by a man called Gog. He will rule the land of Magog (modern Russia; Ezek. 38:2).

Magog lies north of Israel (Ezek. 38:15). Some translations say the “far north.” Others say the “uttermost parts of the north.” Russia occupies that location.

Only God knows, but many prophecy writers, including this one, believe Vladimir Putin is Gog. continue link below

What is Russia up to? “Prophecy Update: Russia’s imminent nuclear threat!” With Amir Tsarfati 

Russia is preparing for something.  They just completed a drill involving 40 million people, has joined with China to counter U.S. missle defense and has called all Russian citizens located throughout the world to come home NOW, not to wait. Russia already has basic control of the middle east, so Ezekiel 38/9 is just around the corner. Is a nuclear conflict with NATO in the works? Amir Tsarfati weighs in below. 

Will Russia End Up Controlling 73% of Global Oil Supply?

Russia has played a master stroke in the current oil crisis by taking the lead in forming a new cartel, but it’s a move that could spell geopolitical disaster.

The meeting between Russia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela on 16 February 2016 was the first step. During the next meeting in mid-March, which is with a larger group of participants, if Russia manages to build a consensus—however small—it will further strengthen its leadership position.

Until the current oil crisis, Saudi Arabia called the crude oil price shots; however, its clout has been weakening in the aftermath of the massive price drop with the emergence of US shale. The smaller OPEC nations have been calling for a production cut to support prices, but the last OPEC meeting in December 2015 ended without any agreement. Continue

Unwalled and Un-gated

With Russia in Syria, many-including myself- have speculated that Ezekiel 38/9 may be around the corner.  While it is certainly in the future, it may not be as close as some think. Let’s take a look again at some verses from this passage:

‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.

You see, it says Israel will be dwelling in safety with no walls, bars or gates. Is Israel presently living in such conditions?  Obviously not.

It will be interesting to see the events which lead up to this sense of security.

Mr. Putin makes moves in Syria, exploiting America’s inaction

via The Washington Post

IN JULY, President Obama said he had been “encouraged” by a telephone call Russian President Vladi­mir Putin had initiated to discuss Syria. The Russians, Mr. Obama confidently declared, “get a sense that the Assad regime is losing a grip over greater and greater swaths of territory” and “that offers us an opportunity to have a serious conversation with them.” Not for the first time, Mr. Obama was supposing that Mr. Putin could be enlisted in a diplomatic settlement to the Syrian civil war along lines Washington and its Arab allies support. Not for the first time, the president appears to have badly misread the Russian ruler.
