If you have been keeping up with today’s news than you are aware Russia is taking action against cities from the former Soviet Union in an attempt to take them back under Russian control. In February 2014 Russia infiltrated the Ukraine by sending undercover troops into the area. By April 2014 president Putin openly admitted he sent troops there. Russia is working on establishing stronger alliances with countries like Belarus, Syria, Iran, China and India in an attempt to strengthen their now almost useless currency of the ruble. Because of embargo’s and boycott’s placed against Russia by the United States and other United Nation countries for their attack on the Ukraine and with the United States now using more of its own oil and selling it to other countries, Russia’s economy is suffering. The price of oil (Russia’s main export) has dropped from approximately $140 a barrel to below $50 a barrel. Russia will have to do something SOON!!
Scripture tells us in the day of the Lord’s returning: Gog in the land of Magog (Russia), the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (Turkey), along with Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer (Ukraine), Togarmah (Armenia) and all his bands (house): “Georgia,Yerevan, Baku, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Moldavia, Yugoslavia, Albania, Istanbul, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Czechoslovakia” will march against Israel in the hopes of wiping them out once and for all. But God has different plans in mind. God says “Therefore, Son of Man, prophesy and say to Gog: “This is what the Sovereign LORD says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it? You will come from your place in the far North, and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. You will advance against My people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, O Gog, I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I show Myself holy through you before their eyes.”
This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Are you not the one I spoke of in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel? At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. This is what will happen in that day: when Gog attacks the land of Israel, My hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. In My zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at My presence.The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all My mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hail stones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him.and so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make Myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
“Son of man, Prophesy against Gog and Say: “This is what the Sovereign LORD Says:I am against you, O Gog, chief princes of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coast-lands, and they will know that I am the LORD.I will make known My holy name among My people Israel.I will no longer let My holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the LORD am the Holy One in Israel. It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign LORD. This is the day I have spoken of.” Ezekiel 38:14 – 39:8
