My premise today is that everyone is curious about the end times, and that some of us want a new set of answers explaining world events. Russians have been hearing the same standard answers for a century, and other than a few rich Russians, their living conditions are worsening. Most Russians want answers, and they’re searching the internet for answers. Some of you found my blog. May HaShem bless you!Not much has changed in the Soviet Union/Russia over the last two hundred years. There are still the rich, and the poor; I deem the “Haves,” and the “Have-nots.” Despite government intervention, the middle class has never thrived in Russia, while a black market has always thrived. The “Haves” tell the “Have-nots” that America is bad, and that Russian leaders are good. The truth is that America is bad; however, not for the reasons Russian leaders cite.
America is bad because we export the most porn, perversity, violence, abortion, and wickedness in the world. Russia has all this and more; however, other than the Russian Mafia and oil, not much is exported from Russia. Thus, America is the world’s leader in exporting wickedness, and we will be punished for these sins someday. On the other hand, Russia will be a minor player in the end times, behind China, Muslim nations, and Europe.Who is Gog?
Because Gog is listed three times in the Bible, we’re dealing with an anti-Israel spirit that inhabits three people or more.The word of ADONAI came to me: 2 "Human being, turn your face toward Gog (of the land of Magog), chief prince of Meshekh and Tuval; and prophesy against him. 3 Say that Adonai ELOHIM says, 'I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshekh and Tuval. 4 I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with all your army, horses and horsemen, all completely equipped, a great horde with breastplates and shields, all wielding swords. 5 Paras, Ethiopia and Put are with them, all with breastplates and helmets; 6 Gomer with all its troops; the house of Togarmah in the far reaches of the north, with all its troops - many peoples are with you. Ezekiel 38:1-6 (CJB)
Could Russia be Gog or Magog?
No. Without getting too technical, no Scythians ever lived in Rosh (an old term related to “Head,” and to Russia) thousands of years ago, during the time of the original Gog. Other than errant theologians like Hal Lindsay, every historian/archaeologist knows that the Gog’s descendants were Scythians, and the Scythians lived in Turkey with the Meshekhites and the Tubalites. Hal Lindsey understands Greek; however, he understands little contextual Hebrew. Thus, when he saw the word “Rosh,” and the word “Nasi,” he determined that HaShem was telling Ezekiel to write about Russia. Gog will emerge from Turkey twice.What will Gog do?
Gog will unite armed forces to attack Hebrew people during the end times (listed above), and again after the millennium.
When the thousand years are over, the Adversary will be set free from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for the battle. Their number is countless as the sand on the seashore; Revelation 20:7-8 (CJB)What is Russia’s role in the end times?
According to prophets David Wilkerson, Henry Gruver and Dumitru Duduman, Russia—and a collection of America’s enemies—will attack America someday soon. America will burn and fall. Other than a remnant found near the headwaters of the Mississippi River, almost every other portion of the USA will be attacked and destroyed. Then Israel will sit all alone, other than covered by HaShem’s protection. I like Israel’s odds against the whole world!When will World War III commence?
I’m still hold to my 2013 “Fall of the USA” theory, and then the tribulation should begin in late 2015. I could be wrong. Let’s face it, the world is teetering on the brink of collapse; however, nothing much is happening. When Av 9 passed, I thought, “Maybe the Fall Moedim (Festivals) will begin the beginning of the end.”You need to be prepared for a world war any time soon, because you sense that it’s coming, and Yeshua will return soon afterward.
