Israel appears to be preparing for war against Iran in the Middle East and the Obama White House does not appear to want to get involved in a war until after the elections. However, a wild card remains: will Putin and Russia intervene in the Middle East?” During his campaign for Russian President, Vladmir Putin promised to significantly improve the Russian economy. If Putin is able to move up oil prices to $150 per barrel from $120 a barrel, this would improve the Russian economy quickly.
This gives Putin and Russia a strong incentive to instigate tensions in the Middle East. Already, Putin is moving Russian special forces into Syria and he is establishing a new political, military and economic alliance called the “Eurasian Union.” Remember Rome learned early on, that the nation that controls Eurasia controls the world. Ironically, this is the backdrop of the George Orwell’s novel, “1984.”
There are many military analysts and leaders around the world who seem unaware of the predictions of the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel Chapter 38, where Russia, Iran, Syria and an alliance of other Middle Eastern nations invade Israel in the last days. In Ezekiel 38:1-6, we read:
“Now the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.”
World leaders spend trillions of dollars on military intelligence, but because of a bias against the Bible, even as literature, they cut themselves off from a vital source of intelligence, which speaks directly to the military conflicts of our day.
