Introduction:
As we watch the news about the current events in the middle east, I believe we may be seeing a Biblical prophesy unfolding before our very own eyes. The president of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has now openly admitted his plan to destroy Israel. Then Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, whom has been indoctrinated by Stalin, atheism and the KGB, is working together with Ahmadinejad.

Three years ago I spoke at a multi Western States event in Nevada (a secular event.) I advised them then, that I believed we may soon see a catastrophic Biblical prophecy unfold before us. That is the war of ‘Gog and Magog’ (aka Russia.) This is nothing to be afraid of, for the Christian it’s exciting to watch. Below are excerpts from my speakers’ notes.

There’s nothing our Country and its military can do to stop this war, nor should we try, nor could we if we did try. However, we still must defend Israel. Defending Israel will be tantamount to defending America.

In the meantime, Christians have a duty to warn others of prophetic events, making sure that we’re ready.  Spiritually speaking, as it’s been said “to edify the saints, and evangelize to those that aint.” Physically speaking, to be prepared to defend yourself.

The current threats to America (including but not limited to):
As I spoke of in one of my PowerPoint presentations (which I no longer give,) right now China has 20 missiles pointed at us. There are 12 suitcase nuclear packages within the United States of America. Al-Qaida purchased them from Russia at $500,000.00 each. They were brought into America thru the Mexican border.  Iran, China and other Nations within the Arab region, are working together to destroy Israel. Iran admits they have nearly achieved their 80% capacity of uranium required to complete the nuclear bomb to destroy Israel.

Rightfully so, in 2001 President George W. Bush categorized many Middle Eastern countries as enemies to us. Hence placing them into the phrase he coined, now known as the “axis of evil.”  However, I believe he should have inserted the country ‘Russia’ into the axis of evil. In a moment, I will tell you why.

Sadly, today America may no longer have the military might to defend Israel or America. We’ve been complacent and vulnerable for too long. Even back in the 1940’s the President of Japan advised, “America is a sleeping giant.”

Much of our complacency has to do with ~

  • A lack of intelligence due to the 1978 Senate Intelligence hearings. Where over 100 of the most experienced Intelligence officers were either fired, or forced to resign
  • Political correctness & tolerance
  • In the 1970’s President Carter penned an executive order, where we could no longer assassinate any evil and dangerous heads of other States that plan to destroy us
  • In the 1980’s President Reagan was the president to pen our first amnesty bill
  • In the 1990’s President Clinton was more concerned about his career & covering his own rear-end, than he was our safety. Americans were distracted, being more concerned as to whose DNA was on Lewinski’s dress. When really we should have been watching the obvious threat of terrorism and China Gate
  • In the 1990’s President George W. Bush was an advocate of open borders, and over spending
  • U.S. Congress continues to give China the “Most Favored Nation” (MFN) status. Back in 1998 when I was in leadership of a particular lobbyist  organization, I personally met with Congressman Calvert over this. He still supports  the MFN to China. Now we’re poor, and China’s rich
  • President Obama has dismantled our missile defense system (meanwhile China has missiles aimed right at us.)
  • President Obama had cauterized our Militaries ‘rules of engagement’ to nearly the role of a police officer
  • And last but not least, America needs to repent as a Nation. We must go back to our Judeo Christian values and principles (2 Chronicles 7:14.)

Let’s see what the Lord says about these current events. The Lord warned Christians that we would experience an intense time of trouble in the last days.

Jesus prophesied this in Luke 21:26-27. ‘Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. ”

In these two verses, Jesus doesn’t just end His warnings with a negative. In the next verse, He then encourages us, of His soon second coming. Verse 28 says, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

The prophetic warnings in the Bible are not just for ‘doom and gloom’ as some have suggested. But rather a promise of redemption at the return of Christ. In other words, instead being filled with fear, we should be filled with excitement.

“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2nd Tim 1:6-7

Did you know that over 2/3s of the hundreds of Bible prophecies have already been fulfilled? We’re getting close!

But what we see regarding Iran and Russia’s plans of attack on Israel may soon be a major fulfillment of prophesy. That is why we often hear Christians say “keep an eye on Israel…watch Israel!” It is Biblically important (commanded) to support Israel.

“I will bless those who bless you (Israel), And I will curse him who curses you (Israel).” Gen 12:3

The current threat of Russia:
What I’m about to tell you, isn’t something you’re going to hear on the mainstream media. That is the soon coming Russian & Arab Invasion of Israel. This will be a prophetic war, a fulfillment of prophecy.

Contrary to what the media says, and even our late President Ronald Reagan. Russia is still a communist Country under the disguise of a democracy. Even after the end of the cold war. However we do need to pray for, and support the Christians in Russia.

I remember back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s during school, we would frequently have bomb drills during class. Where we would have to ‘duck and roll’ under our desks.  As a child, I was afraid of what Russia might do to us. That was because of the legitimate threats of Russia. We will again see Russia’s threats against us. But mostly against Israel.

Regarding Russia, did you know that?

  • 12 nuclear suit case bombs were taken out of Russia over the last 8 years, and are now in America
  • Russia currently has large military bases set up all over the Middle East
  • In the past 10 years, Russia has provided Libya with over 25 Billion dollars worth of advanced weaponry
  • And more to Syria, Yemen and Iraq (all part of the axis of evil.)
  • American intelligence has discovered that some of Iraq’s scud missiles used against us were ‘made in Russia’
  • Russia just signed a one Billion dollar arms deal with Tehran.
  • Russia is currently building nuclear facilities inside Iran.

In 2006 I worked a Federal investigation. Through my investigation, I confirmed that the Russian Mafia and the Iranian Mafia were presently active in West Los Angeles and in the SouthBay (So Calif.) That information was turned over to the United States Attorneys office, who delegated it to the U.S Department of Defense.

Scripture (Prophecy) and the ‘3 Great Wars.’
These wars will convuldge the planet during the last days (aka the apocalyptic.)

The first war:
Jeremiah 50:6. This war will be against Babylon (aka Iraq.) That will involve a Northern alliance of Nations, militarily defeating them.

The second war/The War of Gog and Magog (aka Russia):
Scriptures tell that Russia will move into Israel. When this happens this prophesy will be fulfilled. So watch closely as Russia and Iran may very well be working on this now.

The third war (aka the Armageddon):
This is the war Hollywood likes to capitalize and make movies off of. It is described in Joel, Zechariah & Rev 16:16. This catastrophic conflict will involve the armies of the west, under the antichrist world dictator. And against the heavily armies of Jesus Christ.

The fourth war:
This War occurs 1,000 years after the Armageddon, or immediately following the third war (Revelation 20: 7-8.)

However due to what’s currently happening with Iran, China & Russia,  I’m going to concentrate solely now on the 2nd War.  The second war is ‘The War of Gog and Magog’ (aka Russia.)

Gog is the leader of Magog, and Magog is known today as Russia.  This 2nd War, is the soon coming Russian and Arab invasion against Israel, and can be found in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39.

Ezekiel 38:14 says, “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it?”

This means the people of Israel will be vulnerable. Russia and other enemies will have the ‘element of surprise’ to their advantage.

Vs 15-16, ‘Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. 16 You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against  My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.”

Ezekiel describes this army to be so big, that all the men, horses and military equipment together will be so large, that their shadows will completely cover the entire land.

Verse 17, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?’

However, despite this massive strike, Israel will prevail because of Gods supernatural intervention.  For a lack of time, I will fast forward thru this horrific war. The Lord will then unleash the greatest earthquake in human history.

It says in Ezekiel 38:19-23 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel,  so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”

The plagues sent against them will be so bad, that these soldiers will go crazy / mad, and they will turn against themselves; until  85% of their army will be  left dead.

It says in Ezekiel 39:2-3, ‘I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.”

Talk about a major distraction device or tactic. God will;

  • Turn them around, He will
  • Lead them on, He will,
  • Make them 5150 mad (or literally crazy), He will then,
  • Knock their weapons out of their hands.

Continuing in verses 4-5, ‘You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops  and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken,’ says the Lord GOD.”

Gods says there will be so many dead bodies, it will take seven months to bury the dead (39:12-14.) I’m not talking about a rescue effort and then a recovery. These seven months will be solely for the recovery efforts of cadavers.

It says in Ezekiel 39:12-14, For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land. Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain renown for it on the day that I am glorified,” says the Lord GOD. They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining  on the ground, in order to cleanse it.

The good news:
There is good news to this war. God (and His church) will prevail, and He will supernaturally and prophetically eliminate the Arab and Russian super power.

Henceforth their attempt to destroy Israel, and the western democracies, will fail. However many millions of innocent will perish in this battle. Whose side will you be on?

Conclusion:
Our Country was built with the following tools ~

  • An axe (to tear down)
  • A plow (to rebuild)
  • A book (the Bible)
  • A rifle (to defend us)

We need to be armed with all of the above. We need to use them all, use them or lose them (especially the book/Bible.)

Many are caught up into the emergent church doctrine, believing that Gods’ love is unconditional. Fact is His love and expectations are conditional. I will close with one of the most popular but misused – post 9/11 bible verses. Emphasis added on the following two words “if” and “then.”

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

The church within America needs to repent, be ready, and be engaged.
