As Magog Takes The Stage, A Stunned Global Community Struggles For Answers

Vladimir Putin is a man of few words and much action, but don’t make the mistake of rooting for him. The Bible says that Magog and it’s leader Gog are led by the spirit of Satan, with their goal being the destruction of God’s holy land of Israel.

“I think the Russians have made clear that they’re not interested in provoking a conflict,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.

“Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.” Ezekiel 39:1-3 (KJV)

Vladimir Putin is a man on a mission, and he doesn’t even know it. Early this morning, the Russian parliament approved the use of Russian force in Syria mere hours after Putin’s appearance at the United Nations General Assembly. And in the blink of an eye, Russia instantly became the biggest player and the dominant force in the Middle East. Reaction from the pusillanimous American president Barack Hussein Obama was akin to that of watching Barney Fife attempting to deal with a traffic violation. More and more daily life is starting to resemble a plot line from the Left Behind book series. Seriously.

Putin’s real goal is the invasion of the nation of Israel.

Obama’s press secretary open his mouth and uttered this amazingly and mind-numbingly ignorant comment: “I think the Russians have made clear that they’re not interested in provoking a conflict,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said. “Their actions thus far indicate that that’s what they believe.” Oh, really now. Hey, guess what? Putin just took Syria after he took Ukraine, and he’s just getting started. He is on a march towards the “grand prize” that the Bible declares they will strive to obtain, and that is to take Israel. Putin is a very smart man, he waited patiently until Syria became so weakened by civil war and sectarian violence that there would be no objection to his arrival. 

Is Putin now assembling the nations that will make up the mighty force of Magog?

Russia is, by far, the largest nation on the face of the earth, nearly twice as big as second place Canada. In ancient times, and even in maps found in the 17th and 18th centuries, Russia was called Magog. They are the northern most point on the face of the Earth from the nation of Israel. Why is this important? Because Bible prophecy states that Israel’s main end times enemy is due north of them. The Bible says that Russia, Magog, will take two really good shots at attacking Israel. The first time will be during the Battle of Armageddon at the end of the Time of Jacob’s Trouble after the Rapture, and the second time will be 1,000 years after that in the Battle of Armageddon. Revelation 19 and 20 clearly show two separate battles with 1,000 years between them, they are not the same. (For more on this, please read our article on the Two Wars of the Prophet Ezekiel.)

Obama finds himself in a crazy, bad predicament now. After doing nothing with the 2 and a half years in which he could have taken control of the Syrian situation, Russia has stepped in and taken over. Yes. the United States military is more powerful than the Russian military – BUT – we have a spineless Commander-in-chief who is quaking in his bunny slippers right now. While Obama has been sharpening his golf game the last few years, Putin has been putting all the pieces in place to take functional control of the Middle East in a very Reaganesque way. From this point forward, the gateway to Syria will be through Russia. As a result, America has absolutely no response to today’s events other than to lamely attempt to spin it in a positive light.

Here are some of the actual statements that came from the Obama administration today:

  • “The United States supports any genuine effort to fight ISIL and al-Qaida affiliated groups, especially al-Nusra,” Kerry says. If Russia’s efforts represent a genuine commitment, “we welcome that effort”, he continues. source
  • “We have informed Russia that we are prepared to hold these deconfliction talks as early as possible: this week.” source
  • Secretary of Defense Ash Carter lashed out at Russia on Wednesday for escalating the conflict, saying its actions were equivalent to “pouring gasoline on a fire.” source
  • “Putin has this opening because of the absence of any U.S. strategy in Syria,” said Cotton, a former Army officer. “The U.S. must reject Russia’s interference and rally our partners to do the same.” source
  • “We don’t have much choice at this point but to figure out to co-exist” with the Russians, Rep. Adam Smith, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee said. source

Yeah, that’s the ticket, go figure out how to “co-exist” with the Russia. Are you kidding me? But sadly, that’s what our foreign policy truly is – nothing. So while our military may be superior to Russia’s, and it is, our leadership is not. Under Obama, we have lost the appetite and resolve necessary to be not only a world leader but the world leader. Putin has stepped in to fill that leadership vacuum, and is doing a bang-up job so far. Magog will continue to rise in strength and numbers.

10-irrefutable-proofs-for-the-pretribulation-rapture-doctrine-rightly-dividing-dispensational-truth

The Christian is waiting for the Rapture, which will usher in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

In the coming months, you will see a slow but very steady increase by Russia in expanding it’s military presence across the Middle East. Their ascent will be virtually unchecked and unchallenged. The internationally recognised Ukrainian territory of Crimea was annexed by the Russian Federation in March 2014. The military intervention and annexation by Russia took place in the aftermath of the Ukrainian Revolution. Did any other country outside of Ukraine lift a finger to stop Putin as he did this? No, they did not.

Vladimir Putin is a man of few words and much action, but don’t make the mistake of rooting for him. The Bible says that Magog and it’s leader Gog are led by the spirit of Satan, with their goal being the destruction of God’s holy land of Israel. Would that make Gog the Antichrist? You tell me, but it sure looks that way. Perhaps Putin is just the “advance man” for the actual Antichrist that will control Russia/Magog.

Maybe this whole thing will all blow over in a few weeks, or maybe we are witnessing events that will culminate in Magog at the Battle of Armageddon. I am not making predictions so much as reading what the Bible says and observing what’s going on. But either way now is no time to not be paying attention. As for me, I fully intend to watch the battle when it happens from the Balcony. For an unsaved, Christ-rejecting world, it’s not going to be a pretty sight.

These are truly the days of prophecy long ago foretold in the pages of the Holy Bible.

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” Romans 13:11 (KJV)

Israel Defense Forces Announce The Start Of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ After 200 Rocket Attacks By Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Is Hamas Next?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Israel Defense forces on Friday launched Operation Breaking Dawn in the Gaza Strip, following days of tensions in the wake of the arrest of the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Judea and Samaria.

Israel announced the start of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ to deal aggressively with terror threats and rocket attacks from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which began in earnest yesterday. Over 200 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, with the IDF responding late into the night, seeing the death of 15 PIJ militants to date. The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.” Isaiah 31:5 (KJB)

Meanwhile over in Tbilsli, Georgia, we see something called the Peace Cathedral, which houses places of worship for Muslims, Jews and Christians. It’s based on a similar model called the House of One with plans laid in 2011, and construction started in 2021 in Berlin. We rightly understand this to be the One World Religion of Chrislam, and will be led by Antichrist and the False Prophet during the time of Jacob’s trouble. What began with Rick Warren’s ‘Peace Plan’ 20 years ago, has come to stunning fruition under the work of Pope Francis, Mohamed bin Zayed and the Abraham Accords.

Israel launches ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ against Islamic Jihad in Gaza

BREAKING UPDATE: Rocket sirens sound in the southern part of Tel Aviv and the central cities of Rishon Lezion and Holon, for the first time since violence escalated between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Friday. source

FROM THE JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE: Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement that the goal of the operation was “the elimination of a concrete threat” against civilians, as well as the targeting of terrorists and their sponsors.

“Anyone who tries to harm Israel should know: We will find you,” the premier said.

A senior Israeli source was quoted by media as saying that the mission was initiated with a view to thwarting an imminent large-scale terrorist attack.

According to the IDF, an airstrike on Friday killed senior PIJ commander Tayseer Jabari, who replaced Baha Abu al-Ata as the head of the terrorist group in northern Gaza after the latter’s assassination by the Israeli military in 2019.

The IDF said that some 15 PIJ terrorists had been killed in initial strikes targeting anti-tank missile operators and snipers in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the military has declared a “special situation” throughout the home front and warned residents within an 80-kilometer (50-mile) radius of Gaza, including those living in Tel Aviv, that there was a risk of rocket attacks.

Palestinian terrorists indeed began firing projectiles towards Israeli civilian areas at approximately 21:30 local time, as sirens blared across the country. So far, since the operation began, 71 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, 9 of which fell inside the Gaza strip, according to the IDF.

The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“We will not allow anyone to threaten or harm the citizens of Israel. Whoever tries to do so will get hurt,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said in reference to the ongoing military campaign. READ MORE

Prince Charles Opens The 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games With An Idol Of A Raging, Fiery Bull Prompting Comparisons To Baal Worship

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Baal-like ‘Raging Bull’ was so popular with people attending the Commonwealth Games that a crowdfunding campaign was set up to preserve it to be admired for future generations

One of the things I find most interesting about the idolatrous ‘raging bull’  is not only its close association with Baal worship, but the fact that Prince Charles was the man opening the games. If you recall, we’ve mentioned multiple times on our Prophecy News Podcast about Prince Charles calling for an unnamed man to be given trillions of dollars to wage a military-style campaign. Now he presiding over a massive 32-foot high idol of a fiery bull, what do we call that, progress?

“And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.” 1 Kings 18:26 (KJB)

Whatever happened to shows and ceremonies where people were happy, upbeat and optimistic? That seems to be now completely wiped from our collective memory. Everytime you turn around, you are assaulted with dark, menacing imagery that seems be be not only sending you hidden messages, but perhaps a harbinger of the arrival of something worse? Time is almost up, Christian, if you’re planning on doing something for the Lord, better get after it.

In the Bible, the bull is connected with Baal worship and idolatry from Babylon and Egypt

FROM ISRAEL 365 NEWS: The centerpiece of the opening ceremony of the 2022 commonwealth games was a 10-meter tall mechanical bull. Fifty people spent more than five months building the monstrosity dubbed “Raging Bull.” This stood in stark contrast to the games themselves, which were heavily promoted as “The Friendly Games.”

The dramatic display, directed by Steven Knight, had the bull led into the Stadium by dancers in a dramatic production with a politicized presentation of history, as described by Wales Online:

The bull is led into the Stadium by underpaid, overworked female chain-makers of the Industrial Revolution, trapped by their own circumstances as they produce the bonds that hold others in the slave trade. The women break free via a minimum wage strike of 1910. The bull itself breaks free because of its huge stature. Stella, the hero of the Opening Ceremony, calms it down by offering it love and light. The emotive section ends with the bull eventually moving towards mutual tolerance after it is riled up once again and cries in pain.

As an expression of this love, the female athletes gather around and embrace the bull.

A creepy element was added at the last minute when the names of the 21 victims killed in the 1974 Mulberry Bush and Tavern in the Town bombings by the Irish Republican Army were inscribed on its headpiece. The organizers failed to inform the families of the victims who expressed annoyment in the media.

The bull is massive, requiring a 17-ton vehicle to move it around the stadium. Due to its size, the bull cannot be stored away, so the organizers plan to dismantle it. But the bull has a devoted following, and a petition has been set up to save it.

The popular attraction for the creation could be rooted in the bull being one of the oldest forms of idolatry. When Moses delayed in coming down from Sinai, the Children of Israel resorted to creating a golden calf, a form of idolatry they had witnessed in Egypt. In ancient Egyptian religion, Apis was a sacred bull worshiped in the Memphis region and was later adopted by Alexander the Great. The Canaanites worshipped a bull as the depiction of the fertility god Baal. Jeroboam erected two golden bulls in the northern kingdom of Israel. READ MORE

Artificial Intelligence Image Generator DALL-E 2 Was Asked What The Last Selfie Would Look Like, And It Looks A Whole Lot Like Revelation 9:6

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Horrifying images of what the ‘last’ selfies taken on Earth may look like have been depicted by DALL-E 2, an Artificial Intelligence image generator. It looks like Revelation.

The Artificial Intelligence image generator known as DALL-E-2 was asked to produce images of what the last, human selfie ever taken on earth would look like, and wouldn’t you know it, those last selfies look a whole lot like passages in the book of Revelation. In chapter 9, we see human zombies, under mind-numbing duress and agony, desperately looking to die while death flees from them, prolonging their agony. Those AI generated images pretty much show you an illustrated example of what that might look like.

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” Revelation 9:6 (KJB)

You’ll never get past that dusty, old, antiquated King James Bible, not even with a 21st century AI image generator, so don’t even try. That Book is so far ahead of tomorrow’s headlines that, even when the end come, they’ll never catch up. The scripture of truth’s depiction of the true condition of lost mankind during the great Tribulation is ‘right on the money’ every time it opens it’s mouth. You should read it sometime, and then you too will know what comes next.

Artificial Intelligence program predicts what last selfie on Earth will look like, and it looks like Revelation

FROM THE NY POST: The haunting images, which look straight out of a Hollywood horror blockbuster, were posted to the “Robot Overloads” TikTok account, which provides “daily disturbing” AI-generated images to nearly 200,000 followers.

The creepy images show disfigured humans with elongated fingers and oversized eyes. One features a man maniacally staring into the camera as a huge explosion goes off over his shoulder. Another shows a frightening skeletal figure framed by a huge plume of smoke.

“OK no more sleeping,” one TikTok user replied.

“That’s exactly how it’s going to be,” another surmised.

One user suggested one of the images actually appeared realistic, while some said the disturbing potential future may be closer than we think – perhaps as early as 2024.

“Average day in Ohio,” one person quipped.

Some said the images appeared to show the aftermath of a nuclear bomb, but the account had entered “selfie of the end of the world” into the AI image generator. A second post showed more distressing scenes featuring several mutilated figures in a largely abandoned war-torn hellscape. One bloodied person’s eyes even moved in the disturbing creation.

“Moving?!” one commenter noted. “Like it wasn’t scary enough?”

“School will remain open,” another joked.

The DALL-E 2 AI system, created earlier this year, can “create realistic images and art” from a user’s description, according to its website.

“DALL-E 2 has learned the relationship between images and the text used to describe them,” the site explains. “It uses a process called ‘diffusion,’ which starts with a pattern of random dots and gradually alters that pattern towards an image when it recognizes specific aspects of that image.” READ MORE
