The scriptures indicate that a northern army will invade Israel in the last days. Bible scholars have traced the tribes and have determined that this northern army is led by tribes that have settled in Russia. This prophecy has never been fulfilled so it will be fulfilled in the future.
The details of this invasion from the north are given in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. The allies that come with this northern invader are named by nation (tribe). Today most of these nations are Islamic and are enemies of Israel. Ezekiel even lists the countries that will question the reason for this invasion. These nations seem to be nations that come out of the old British Empire and oil rich nations aligned with the West. Ezekiel mentions these nations as Tarshish, all her young lions (English speaking nations), Sheba and Dedan (Saudi Arabia Kuwait). The alignment of nations predicted in Ezekiel is the alignment that we see in that region today. God said He will destroy this northern army that comes against Israel and by doing so He will magnify Himself and become known to many nations.
It says in Ezekiel that at the time of this invasion God will send fire on Magog (Russia) and those that dwell securely in the isles (or coast lands), and from that day they shall know that the God of Israel exists.
Russia is moving toward superpower status again and a new dictatorshipRussia has emerged out of the depression it was in for many years after the fall of the Soviet Union. New growth in the economy due to Russia's rich natural resources will soon bring Russia back to superpower status again. Nationalism, lawlessness and anti-Semitism are rising today in Russia. Most of the former Soviet bloc leaders of the old Soviet Union have come back into power. Over fifty percent of the positions of power in Russia including Putin are former KGB officers.
They lament the fall of the old Soviet Union and they wish to form a new union of nations led by Russia. Putin recently announced that there will be a new Eurasian union and it is expect to be in place by 2014.
There is no longer freedom of speech in Russia. TV and other media are once again government controlled and enemies often end up dead. The new steps taken by Putin to regain centralized control is leading to a dictatorship.
Russia continues to modernize its nuclear weapons and to prepare underground facilities in case of war. Russia has successfully developed a new long range missile that can change directions after launch. These missiles can successfully penetrate the antimissile system shield that is being developed by the United States.
Russia also has strategic ties to regional Islamic countries. Russia is actively aiding Iran in building nuclear power plants that will giver Iran nuclear material for nuclear weapons. The Arab/Islamic countries have one common enemy and at some point they will try to rid themselves of the Israeli presence with Russia as their protector. The prophecies in Ezekiel 38 and 39 indicate that God will put a hook in the jaw of Russia and bring her down against the land of Israel in the latter years. The hook could very well be the defense pacts and economic agreements that Russia has established with Syria, Iran and other Islamic nations. In the battle described in Ezekiel, Russia will be the leader of a regional coalition against Israel.
Until this battle Russia will continue to be a world military superpowerThe United States had been dismantling its nuclear capability as if Russia were no longer a world threat but Russia's nuclear submarine and missile capability has been modernized and is quite capable of destroying the United States or any adversary. Scripture says that this army from the north will be splendidly attired. This could mean that they will be equipped with every conceivable weapon. Russia still has a large population of educated scientists that could develop formidable military weapons very quickly if that becomes their paramount concern and national focus.
Some think the United States and Russia are no longer a threat to each other, yet Russia almost always takes a position that is contrary to the national security interests of the United States. Russia exports nuclear technology and advanced weapons of war that they know will be used against the United States, Israel, and the West. Russia has a world agenda that willfully arms Islamic fascism and rogue dictators to carry out warfare against the West. The major world powers enabling Islamic fascism and other nations confessing hatred toward the United States are Russia and China. Although Russia and Western leaders announced the end of the cold war after the fall of the Soviet Union the recent actions and rhetoric of Russia indicate that the cold war continues.
Signs of the timeRussia is following in the footsteps of Germany before the second World War. National pride and the memory of the empire they once had is now compelling them to rebuild a strong military under an authoritative leader. Putin stepped aside as President for a few years and took the number two position but at the next election he will almost certainly become president of Russia until the time of the Ezekiel war. Putin is gaining more power all the time and he has specifically stated that his primary goal is to bring Russia to world superpower status again.
If we assume that it will take Russia about 10 to 15 years to accomplish the reestablishment of a first class military, it probably is no coincidence that the same amount of time is needed for the Arab/Islamic block to become a real nuclear military threat to Israel.
They will indeed join forces in this battle when Russia invades Israel as Ezekiel prophesied over twenty-five hundred years ago. All indications are that the battle against Israel that is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and the supernatural defeat of these forces by God will take place in this generation.

Russia sees union with Belarus and Kazakhstan by 2015Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan have agreed to set up a Eurasian economic union, modelled on the EU, with a target date of 2015.The three countries already have a customs union but now aim to go further by removing trade barriers.
Their respective presidents signed a deal to create an executive body similar to the European Commission.
Earlier this year, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin denied the bloc would re-create the Soviet Union.
In a ceremony broadcast live on Russian television, President Dmitry Medvedev said that "without doubt this will be decisive in the future of our countries". He added that the prospect of a Eurasian union had also aroused interest from several other states.
Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in particular are said to be looking at the project.
'Soviet-style vocabulary' Mr Medvedev also did not rule out the possibility that the union would take shape even earlier than 2015: "If the prerequisites are there, we shall move faster, if we are able to."
Although Russia is spear-heading the plan, Mr Medvedev praised the Kazakh leader, Nursultan Nazarbayev, as its creator as far back as the 1990s "when the very word integration was regarded as a remnant of Soviet-style vocabulary".
In a newspaper article last month, Vladimir Putin insisted that there was no talk of reforming the USSR, arguing that it would be naive to copy what had been abandoned in the past.
Under the customs union that came into operation in July 2010, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan agreed to remove tariffs and customs controls along their shared borders. They will then form a single economic space at the start of 2012.
Mr Nazarbayev said they would also have to come to a deal on inflation and debt levels before economic union could begin.
All three countries are still members of the Commonwealth of Independent States, along with eight other nations, including Ukraine.
- Eurozone leaders urge governments to focus on growth amid fears about the negative impact of austerity measures.

In its latest TW News & Prophecy, LCG reported that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is continuing his quest on creating a Eurasian union:
Eurasian union developing?China has its own ambitions:
Vladimir Putin envisions a Eurasian Union that will put Moscow as a top leader among the world’s nations by 2015. The Russian Prime Minister “has a vision for a Soviet Union-lite he hopes will become a new Moscow-led global powerhouse.” On January 1, 2012, Russia moved one step closer to this goal with an agreement with Belarus and Kazakhstan to allow free movement of goods and capital across their borders.Putin’s plan is to extend his reach, becoming head of a Eurasian superpower. “As Putin envisions it, the still-hypothetical union will eventually stretch from the eastern fringes of Central Europe to the Pacific Coast and south to the rugged Pamir Mountains abutting Afghanistan” (Associated Press, January 3, 2012). Mr. Putin’s plans for a Eurasian union fit with prophecies recorded long ago in the Bible, where God revealed a future alliance that He would bring to pass (Isaiah 46:9-10). In Daniel 11:40-44 the European King of the North (or “Beast”) is prophesied to destroy the Middle-Eastern King of the South. This Beast will occupy Jerusalem, yet news from the east and north will “trouble him” (v. 44). This Eurasian Union could be a source of a 200-million-man army that is prophesied to march from the east across the Euphrates and descend on Jerusalem (Revelation 9:13-19; 16:12-16). This massive army will annihilate a third of mankind and will destroy the Beast just prior to the return of Jesus Christ. The only nations capable of assembling such an army are those intended to be in this Eurasian union and include Russia, China, and possibly India, among others.

The reality is that the Chinese comments will likely persuade the USA to make alliances with Europe and others that will not help. Europe, with various allies, and not primarily China and Russia, will be the main threats to the USA as Europe with its allies will succeed in not a huge number of years.China in US gunsightsIs China’s rise going to lead to conflict with America? Is Beijing destined to go to war with today’s undisputed global superpower?
BBC - Jan 6, 2012
One early response to the new US policy has come from the state-controlled Global Times newspaper, often nationalist in its opinions.
It says “China needs to enhance its long-distance military attack ability and develop more ways to threaten US territory in order to gradually push outward the front line of its ‘game’ with America”.
“China,” the paper says, “must make the US realise that its rise can’t be stopped and that it is best for the US to show friendliness towards China.”
China Warns US on New Asia Military FocusIts message: America should steer clear “militarism” in the region.
Of course, in the New Testament it is shown that a group of nations known as the Kings of the East will form–but to come into the Middle East and not the USA:
12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” 16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16).This concept of Asian involvement in a major battle is confirmed in the Book of Revelation. Notice the following:
13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed–by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths(Revelation 9:13-18).Only China, and possibly India and others in Asia, which would apparently align themselves with a Russia confederation against the European Empire, are capable of fielding a two hundred million man army.
But this will not be against the USA as it will be gone before (Daniel 11:39).
The Bible shows that a Eurasian military union will happen involving those from the north AND the east will form and frighten the European King of the North:
…the king of the North… 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. 44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him (Dan 11:40,43-45).And will all of that WILL happen, it is likely that it may be proceeded by various types of economic unions and/or treaties. Such as what Vladimir Putin has been proposing. The fact that China expects to increase its military power will likely help.

PHYSICAL PATH CHINA WOULD HAVE TO TAKE TO ATTACK ISRAEL
- If this Chinese Army, marching from the East, were equipped with weapons of mass destruction, i.e., nuclear, chemical, and biological, they could easily kill tens of millions of people on their way to Israel. Remember, modern weaponry has tactical shells and missiles of all three of these weapons of mass destruction.
- Let us examine the path from China this terrible army might take to get to Israel. We already know they will be coming from the East, but then in Revelation 16:12, we discover that they will be crossing the River Euphrates, which has been dried up. Please take a close look at the map, above, at the beginning of this section.
- What countries will the Chinese Army have to go through or near to get from China to Israel by way of the Euphrates River in the Middle East? And, more importantly, what are their populations?The Chinese Army would have to progress through the following countries, or very near them. From Northern China is where this enormous army would have to stage to begin the march, as you can see from the map of China, above. The superhighway is shown in red. Then, as the road crosses over the Chinese border, it goes into the Chinese controlled area of Kashmir, through the Pakistan controlled area of Kashmir, and then through the Karahoram Highway! Then, the road would go West through the following countries.
- Tibet -- Some maps will have taken Tibet off the map, showing just China
- Pakistan -- Notice on the map that China and India have a "disputed area" exactly in the way where this road would logically enter from China to Pakistan. This map even shows a "Cease Fire Line". This disputed area is Kashmir! Further, this Chinese highway goes right through Karahorum Pass!
- India -- this super highway would run immediately North of India, but right through the disputed area of Kashmir. The one characteristic shared by the Chinese and the Pakistanis is their hatred of the Indians. Both China and Pakistan have fought wars against India. Historic hatred and competition is fierce. When China marches her 200,000,000 man army along this highway, through the Karahoram Pass, the most incredibly powerful army the world has ever seen will be passing from China through the Chinese-controlled portion of Kashmir, through the Pakistan-controlled portion of Kashmir, and right through the Karahoram Pass! When India sees such a powerful army passing just north of her border, she is likely to feel threatened enough to attempt to interdict it. When this happens, China is likely to launch a devastating counterattack using all of the Weapons of Mass Destruction at her disposal. All of India might be annihilated, comprising 25% of the world's population at that point in the Great Tribulation!
- Afghanistan --- America continues to fight a war against the Taliban of Afghanistan. Now, the entire country lies at our strategic disposal. Whatever we want to do, the Afghan government is not going to be able to say "No"; therefore, it is logical that the interim government of Afghanistan would now allow free access to a super highway already built across their land, particularly if they heard the explanation that this road would enable the Chinese to "take out" the Israelis once and for all. Was our war in Afghanistan really fought only to provide free, unfettered access to this highway?From China all the way across Afghanistan, this super highway would run across some of the tallest mountains in the world. You can see that, if a nation is going to rapidly move 200,000,000 fighting men and their war materiel across such a long distance, they would need such a modern super highway. Otherwise, the mountains would prohibit such movement.Grant Jeffrey says very plainly, "The Chinese government has spent enormous sums and expended the lives of hundreds of thousands of construction workers building a military superhighway across Asia heading directly toward Israel. The highway has no economic purpose and no foreigners are allowed anywhere near this road. The highway has been completed through the south of China, Tibet, Pakistan, and Afghanistan." [Ibid., p. 199]Why is this highway only completed through Afghanistan? After all, this 200 million man army still has to travel through Iran, Iraq, and Jordan to get to Israel. Why would the highway be constructed only through Afghanistan? One possible answer is that they have not received the permission from Iran and Iraq to build such a super highway; however, I do not believe this is the case, because of the hatred of the Arabs against Israel. They would do anything to see Israel defeated and annihilated, including the building of a super highway. The second possible answer is that the terrain of Iran, Iraq, and Jordan is so flat that huge tanks, trucks, and tens of thousands of other tracked vehicles could easily travel across the land. In military terms, this land is called "Tank Country", because tanks can so easily move quickly across.
- Iran -- Once the highway ends at Afghanistan, Iran will be easily traversed. Its land is so flat, it is called, "Tank Country". Huge numbers of men, materiel, and heavy equipment can easily travel on it quickly!
- Iraq -- Ditto Iran. Most interesting is that, at this moment, Coalition Forces control Iraq. Specifically, the Americans control Baghdad, which is located on the 33rd parallel and through which the Tigris and Euphrates pass. No one can be sure of the effect on this portion of prophecy the American control of Baghdad may have. However, I believe that the American control will be gone by the time the world has reached the end of the 7-year prophecy, which is when this particular event occurs.
However, once the army reaches Baghdad, it will have to cross the rivers Tigris and Euphrates. I find it interesting that these prophecies do not mention the Tigris River being crossed, when it is most obvious that the army must cross it if they are going to cross the Euphrates. There are only three reasons the Tigris River is not mentioned. 1) The Bible considers the Tigris-Euphrates River Basin as one system. 2) For the army to have crossed the Euphrates River from the East, they would have to cross the Tigris. 3) It is at the Euphrates River that God has chained the four powerful evil angels that are leading this tremendous army toward Israel. Whatever the reason, we know that Turkey has built their systems of dams so that they can shut the water completely off both the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Both mighty rivers will be dry!! On this note, do you know that the Government of Turkey now has, in place, a system of dams that could completely shut off the flow of water down the River Euphrates? That system of dams has just been recently constructed, and is one more indication that we are living in the End of the Age! Let us examine this most pertinent Scripture once again:"And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way [the road] of the kings of the east might be prepared." [Revelation 16:12;
Southern Russia -- Even though much of the Russian army has probably been destroyed prior to this invasion, as they were attempting to destroy Israel in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39, it is conceivable that they might try to intercept this massive army as it passes to the south. Or, the Chinese just might "get even" with the Russians, and kill as many as possible as they move along the highway. Remember, with today's weaponry, much killing of population centers could occur without the vehicles leaving the highway.
Jordan -- Jordanian territory is as flat and as conducive to rapid tank and truck traffic as Iran.
Remember the prophecy that this 200 million man army would kill one-third of the world's population? If this calculation is figured on the basis of the 6 billion people now in the world, then this would be a death figure of 2 billion people. However, by this time, at least one-fourth of the world's population is dead from God's judgments, which means that, before this army marches, approximately 1 billion, 500 million people have already died, leaving a world population of no more than 4.5 billion. This means that 1.5 billion people will be killed by this army of the East.
As we look at the countries through which, or near which, this army will pass, we see two very interesting situations. First, we see India, with a population of slightly more than 1 billion. If India begins to move her forces to meet the Chinese army, then it is highly likely that China might retaliate with all the weapons of mass destruction at her disposal. India could be annihilated.Second, New World Order Plans envision the complete annihilation of the world's 1 billion Muslims because their belief in One God is too strong for them to ever accept the claims of the New Age Christ [Antichrist]. It is interesting to note that the majority of the population in Southern Russia is Muslim, so they would be targeted for destruction from the beginning.However it works out, this invasion of the 200 million man army from the "East", China, will result in the deaths of one-third of all the people of the Earth. Thus, by the time this army reaches Jerusalem, it will have many victories and much blood on their hands. We believe this is the true prophetic significance between the current dispute between Pakistan, India, and China over Kashmir. China may just be acting to ensure that her access to Karahoram Pass remains firmly in either her hands or in Pakistan's. If this war were to really break out, and Pakistan is decimated, and in danger of losing control of the critical mountain pass, China would most certainly enter the war with all weapons at her disposal.ARMING CHINA WITH MODERN WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION TO FULFILL THIS PROPHECYSince the mid-1990's, China has been arming to an alarming degree! Using monies gained primarily from her growing, lucrative trade with the United States and the European Union, China has been arming herself like a young boy who has a lot of money to spend in a candy store. China has bought, stolen, or bartered arms from Russia, the United States, and Israel.Furthermore, China has quietly been making alliances with nations she deems necessary to further her aim to march to Israel at the latter end of the Tribulation Period. Not only does prophecy state this, as we noted above, but the New World Order Plan envisions this also. Listen:"Eventually the Chinese invasion, it seems, will split into two prongs ... Chinese forces will eventually reach the Middle East ... Above all, there will be the Great Chinese War ... the initial skirmishes will take place in South-East Asia and India ...". (Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", page 223)Note carefully that this plan nearly perfectly parallels Scriptural prophecy as we noted, above. China will destroy wantonly in "South-East Asia and India", just as prophecy indicates.Now, let us view some news articles to see how feverishly China is arming.NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. Missile Gap Widen: Pentagon's hypersonic weapon program by 2010, WorldNetDaily, by Charles Smith, October 3, 2000.""Despite the Pentagon's development of a new generation of hypersonic missile, the U.S. is still a decade behind Russia in high-speed cruise-missile design, according to defense analysts. According to the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, the U.S. military is developing a new hypersonic robot missile reported to be capable of traveling in excess of six times the speed of sound and armed with its own miniature smart bombs. The new weapon, called the Advanced Rapid Response Missile Demonstrator, or ARRMD, is designed to cruise at over 4,000 miles an hour and strike targets hundreds of miles away in only a few seconds. "Wow! This type of weapon would be a devastating weapon that could penetrate any defense system known today. A missile moving toward a target at 4,000 miles per hour would move so quickly through even the most sophisticated defense system that no computer could react quickly enough to shoot it down before it blew the targeted ship out of the water. Thank God we are working on it, and not the Russians and Chinese. Right? Wrong!!
"Nevertheless, defense analysts agree that the U.S. is fully a decade behind Russia in high-speed cruise missile designs. Russia currently deploys and exports the supersonic SS-N-22 Moskit cruise missile, NATO codenamed "Sunburn." The SS-N-22 is considered the most lethal anti-ship missile in the world, and flies at over 2.5 times the speed of sound only a few feet from the surface of the water." [This speed amounts to almost 1,700 miles per hour, or 28 miles per minute].
Wait a minute! You mean that Russia not only has this type of missile, but they have already deployed it? Further, they are exporting it to other nations! Does this mean that China might have this missile? Does this mean that both China and Russia might be able to deploy this missile in the upcoming planned Third World War? Listen:
"The Sunburn missile has been sold to China. The SS-N-22s are part of a recent Chinese purchase of two Sovremenny-class destroyers. Each warship carries two quad SS-N-22 launchers providing eight missiles per destroyer. According to U.S. Navy documentation, each Sunburn missile can be armed with a nuclear warhead equal to over 200,000 tons of TNT. News reports of nuclear warheads on the new Chinese anti-ship missiles were first published in WorldNetDaily in 1999."
Russia has also supplied Iran with this Sunburn supersonic missile. If hostilities were initiated between Iran and the United States, the Sunburn missile, guided by Russian radar, will immediately attack oil shipping in the Strait of Hormuz, through which one-third of crude oil to the West passes. The American Navy simply does not have the weaponry with which to counter-attack the Sunburn. If Russian radar and scalar weaponry can neutralize American fighter jets, our interests could suffer immediately, perhaps permanently.
NEWS BRIEF: "China And Russia Flex Their Muscles As They Join Forces To Play The War Game", By Simon Tisdall, The Guardian - UK, 8-8-5"Next week will see far larger war games involving Chinese and Russian troops in and around the Shandong peninsula in the Yellow sea. Regional observers say such military cooperation is unprecedented and could mark the start of something new. 'The China-Russia exercise is intended to send a message to Taiwan', said Andrew Yang of the Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies in Taipei. 'But it's also a very significant move in terms of the developing relationship between Russia and China and joint efforts to manage regional security. China considers it's time to increase strategic cooperation with Russia to balance the US role in the region. Both are interested in demonstrating this is a multipolar rather than a unipolar world'.""Russia was already China's biggest arms and energy supplier. Bilateral collaboration would progressively deepen not only in the Asia-Pacific area but also in central Asia, he predicted. The prospect of a revamped Beijing-Moscow 'axis' is feeding American paranoia about the challenge to US security and economic interests posed by China's rise ... Max Boot, of the Council on Foreign Relations thinktank in New York, warned ominously last month of a Chinese 'stealth war' involving financial, resource, psychological, media and even ecological warfare.""A recent Pentagon report reemphasized concerns that China's military build-up could in time pose a 'credible threat' to the US and its allies in the Asia-Pacific theatre ..."This report simply screams that China now possesses enough state-of-the-art weaponry in enough quantity to pose a very significant threat to the United States.NEWS BRIEF: "China's missiles can target US, Japan, Australia", rediff.com, August 13, 2005"China's rapid military build-up is a direct threat not only to Taiwan but to the United States, Japan, and Australia as well, Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian warned ... 'Some of their missiles can reach 10,000 kilometres', Chen told The Weekend Australian in Taipei. 'Therefore, their targets include the US, Japan, Australia - all the countries in the Asia-Pacific region', he said, adding that Beijing was also strengthening its worldwide espionage operations. An estimated 600-700 ballistic missiles along the Chinese coast face Taiwan, just 160 kilometres away.""The report said that an increasingly modern Chinese military could pose a threat to the US and other forces. Governments across Asia worry about Beijing's growing military power, driven by a booming economy and double-digit annual spending increases. China's military-spending is already the world's third-highest at US Dollar 50 billion to US Dollar 70 billion a year, behind only to US and Russia, the Pentagon report had said."China is feeling bold enough these days to actually threaten the United States with a nuclear attack.NEWS BRIEF: "China's nuke warning to US on Taiwan", rediff.com, July 15, 2005"A Chinese general said that if the United States were to attack China in a conflict over Taiwan, he believed Beijing might respond with nuclear weapons ... Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu, a dean at China's National Defense University, stressed that he was expressing a personal view, not official policy ... Zhu was responding to a question about how China might respond to US involvement in a conflict with Taiwan. The United States is Taiwan's biggest arms supplier and could be drawn into fighting to help defend the island. 'If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition into the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons', the general was quoted as saying."While this general is not directly now involved with military planning, neither would he dare say anything directly contrary to official Chinese government wishes, knowing he would easily and quickly disappear. Thus, we can only conclude that, as a private citizen now, he is stating official Chinese thinking in an unofficial capacity, thus giving China's officials the opportunity to issue a "plausible denial".By the way, this is not the first time a Chinese general has threatened America with nuclear war should we intervene on behalf of Taiwan.In some instances, China has simply outsmarted both the United States and Russian leadership.NEWS BRIEF: "China Duplicates Russian Top Secret Fire-Control Codes For SU-27 Fighter", by DEBKAfile, 29 June 2002"A 33-year old Chinese software engineer, Zhu Rong Gong, has duplicated the secret fire-control software and systems integration for Russia’s Su-27 series of aircraft, giving his country’s drive towards the fully autonomous production of this potent weapon a sharp spurt ... China is currently believed to operate 100 or more of these state of the art fighter aircraft, which parallel the Russian Mig-29 and US F-15C. In February 1996, Russia sold full Su-27 production rights to China for US$2.5 billion, but withheld the production secrets of certain key technologies, such as the software used to control the aircraft’s sophisticated integrated fire control system, which were supplied only in “black box” form.""... The Russians counted on their “bans and restrictions”, coupled with China’s practical limitations, to hold Beijing back from modernizing and exporting non-licensed versions of the SU-27 and SU-30 variants without their help. They relied on the fact that the AL-31F engines and all the sets of radio-electronic equipment for these planes had to come from Russia. However, Chinese intelligence has actively pursued the secrets of the aircraft sub-systems Russia is withholding ..."Thus, by successfully carrying out "reverse engineering", China has unlocked the full capabilities of Russia's most sophisticated fighter-bomber aircraft!NEWS BRIEF: "PLA (Chinese) Navy Obtains New-Generation Submarines", Dr. Alexandr Nemets, Thursday, Nov. 21, 2002"In July 2001, in an article about PLA Navy modernization written jointly with Dr. Thomas Torda (PLA Navy: From 'Green Water' to 'Blue Water'), the author gave the most recent information available (from June-August 2001) regarding the "093 project" nuclear attack submarine: By mid-2001, Huludao Military Shipbuilding Plant, in northeastern Liaoning province, finished construction of one submarine or, more probably, two submarines of this kind; this submarine (or these submarines) participated, in August 2001, in PLA's large-scale Dongshan maneuvers in the Taiwan Strait."This article then listed some of the significant newly acquired capabilities of the Chinese Navy:"By 2000-2001, China, with heavy Russian assistance, finished developing and mastered production of HN(Hong Niao)-2 and HN-3 Land Attack Cruise Missiles (LACMS). All of them are capable of carrying nuclear warheads.""The HN-2 series includes three varieties – namely, HN-2A and HN-2B for ground launching, with a range of 1,800 km, and HN-2C for submerged launching from submarines, with a 1,400-km range. According to reliable sources, HN-2Cs are installed on PLA Navy Song-class diesel-electric submarines; they could be vertically launched from standard 533-mm torpedo tubes.""The HN-3 series, with a range of 2,500-3,000 km and maximal rate of 0.9 Mach (speed of sound), includes the HN-3A variety for ground launching and the HN-3B variety for submerged launching from the "093 project" nuclear attack submarine.""China (no doubt with heavy assistance from Russia) is presently engaged in developing "super-advanced" LACM with a range of 4,000 km.""Very probably, in 2003-2005, the PLA Navy will concentrate efforts on purchasing Akula-II (nuclear) submarines from Russia. Some sources give $2 billion as the possible bargaining figure. At the same time, Huludao Shipyard could get the technology to manufacture Akula II. It is considered the most advanced in the Russian Navy inventory of nuclear attack submarines. Gepard weaponry includes:Time and space do not allow me to continue adding more news stories of the incredibly fast rate of improvement of Chinese weapons systems. During the past 6 years of the Clinton Administration, China received unbelievable assistance in satellite guidance systems, which make missile guidance systems incredibly more accurate.* Granit (SS-N-21 Sampson) submarine-launched LACMs with a range of approximately 3,000 km; they are usually equipped with nuclear warheads.* Yakhont supersonic ship-to-ship missiles, with a maximal rate of 3 Mach (1,000 m/s) and a range of about 300 km.
* Advanced torpedoes and missile-torpedoes.
The submarine could dive to depths of 520-600 m and sail autonomously for 100 days.
Clinton allowed China to "steal" our most advanced nuclear warhead designs.
In as many ways as you can count, China has advanced to the cusp of superpower status. Now, America is said to be trying to formulate a reasonable response.
NEWS BRIEF: "US, China entering new Cold War", Taipei Times, Aug 13, 2005
"The main theme running through East Asian history in recent years has shifted away from economic issues and a war on terror, and is now focused on geopolitical conflict. The contest between the major powers -- which is becoming increasingly tense -- looks more and more like a 'Cold War' between the US and China ... the anti-terror alliance between the US, Russia, China and other countries has practically disintegrated.
"It has been replaced by a geopolitical contest between major powers, particularly the US and China. This is clearly indicated by recent incidents, including China National Offshore Oil Corp's (CNOOC) failure to take over the US oil company Unocal, Uzbekistan's decision to drive the US military off its territory, and the six-party talks about nuclear disarmament on the Korean Peninsula ... Concerns over energy security are making Beijing authorities eager to drive out US forces from Central Asia as a way of breaking through the US' 'containment' ... The Pentagon's latest annual report on China's military strength, which was issued on July 19, for the first time points out that China's active expansion of its military arsenal is not only aimed at Taiwan, but rather at 'Taiwan and beyond'."
"All signs point to China and the US now entering into a new version of the Cold War. The two are still important trading partners, but they are also becoming involved in a geopolitical struggle centering around their opposing energy strategies. This struggle is now heating up."
Finally, both China and Russia have armed Iran to the teeth, a buildup calculated to ensure that President Bush could never actually attack Iran.
NEWS BRIEF: "Greater China: The US and that 'other' axis", By Jephraim P Gundzik, Asia Times, June 9, 2005
"Beijing's increasingly close ties with Moscow and Tehran will thwart Washington's foreign policy goal of expanding US security footholds in the Middle East, Central Asia and Asia ... Since the beginning of the war in Iraq, Beijing has worked feverishly to strengthen its ties with Moscow and Teheran in an apparent effort to prevent US military action against the remaining "axis of evil" members, Iran and North Korea. In addition to recent massive energy deals with Teheran, which place Iran in China's security web, both Beijing and Moscow have accelerated the transfer of missile technology to Teheran, while selling the Islamic republic increasingly sophisticated military equipment."
"Armed with a vast array of anti-ship and long-range missiles, Iran can target US troop positions throughout the Middle East and strike US Navy ships. Iran can also use its weapons to blockade the Straits of Hormuz through which one-third of the world's traded oil is shipped. With the help of Beijing and Moscow, Teheran is becoming an increasingly unappealing military target for the US."
CONCLUSIONTo the discerning Christian, who is continually looking beyond the rhetoric and the news of the day to see how the world is changing in ways foretold in Scriptural prophecy, this vast arming of China, coupled with the completion of an all-weather road which runs from China to Israel's doorstep, causes a very loud warning siren to go off in your mind.
China is literally preparing for the time in the 7-year Tribulation Period, when both America and Russia are destroyed, and the "Kings of the East" are summoned by the demonic host to march along that all-weather road to Israel's border, preparing for attack. Along the way, this massive Chinese force will kill and kill and kill some more, all according to prophecy.
And, when these 200,000,000 troops surround Jerusalem, Jesus will come to kill them instantly with the sword of His mouth (Rev 19:14-15). This tremendous event should not be called "The Battle of Armageddon", but "The Slaughter of Armageddon". In one instant, every one of these soldiers will die. And, the Lord has prepared for the disposal of their bodies.
ISRAEL, IRAN, ARMAGEDDON & THE COMING WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG
By Paul McGuire
November 29, 2011
NewsWithViews.comRussian General Nikolai Makarov said in RIANOVSTI, “NATO’s eastward expansion or an attack on Iran by the U.S. and Israel could cause Russia to enter the conflicts. The General said, ”The possibility of local armed conflicts along nearly the whole border has increased dramatically. In certain conditions, I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”Due to Vladimir Putin, Russia is no longer a poor nation. It has built up $516 billion in foreign reserves, which is the world’s third largest, after China and Japan. Russia is now the world’s largest oil exporter, putting it ahead of Saudi Arabia. Tapping into its massive Siberian oil fields, some of which are very close to Alaska, has made Russia the number one oil and gas exporter in the world. In contrast, due to environmental regulations, the U.S. is unable to tap into its massive oil reserves such as the AMWR oil fields which could supply the oil needs of the U.S. for the next 200 years. Moreover, Russia possesses the world’s most advanced military after the USA.It is interesting to note that the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 38 predicts a last days’ invasion of Israel, led by Russia, Iran and other Middle Eastern nations. The Ezekiel 38 invasion is also known as the War of Gog and Magog. Bible scholars disagree as to whether the War of Gog and Magog happens before Armageddon or towards the end of Armageddon. Military generals from around the world refer to this coming conflict as World War III. This is why there is a mad rush around the world to build massive underground bases the size of cities, preparation against nuclear attacks and why the U.S. has invested in a Nationwide Emergency Alert System. According to research provided by Researcher Joel C. Skousen in his World Affairs Brief “Further, the Russians are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. "Yamantau Mountain is the largest nuclear-secure project in the world," said US Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md). "They have very large train tracks running in and out of it [actually 5 tracks wide], with enormous rooms carved inside the mountain.It has been built to resist a half dozen direct nuclear hits, one after the other in a direct hole. It's very disquieting that the Russians are doing this when they [supposedly] don't have $200 million to build the service module on the international space station and can't pay housing for their own military people." Ken Timmerman, one of the best sources of information on the subject says, "The Russians have constructed two entire cities over the site, known as Beloretsk 15 & 16, which are closed to the public, each with 30,000 workers. No foreigner has ever set foot near the site. A US military attaché stationed in Moscow was turned back when he attempted to visit the region a few years ago..."In public testimony before a House Armed Services Subcommittee last October, KGB defector Col. Oleg Gordievsky said the KGB had maintained a separate, top-secret organization, known as Directorate 15, to build and maintain a network of underground command bunkers for the Soviet leadership -- including the vast site beneath Yamantau Mountain. In Revelation 6:16-17, the world’s elite are hiding in massive underground bunkers in the rocks looking for safety as nuclear war goes off during the Tribulation Period, “and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”Russia, Iran and an alliance on Militant Muslin nations will invade Israel. Ezekiel 38:1-7 gives us a list of the nations that will come against Israel.“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.”The nations that Ezekiel named in his prophecy are many of the nations that are still with us today. For example:The land of Magog .................... Russia
Meshech and Tubal .................. Somewhere in Russia
Persia ......................................... Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan
Ethiopia ..................................... Ethiopia and Sudan
Libya .......................................... Libya
Ashkenaz .................................. Austria and Germany
Gomer ....................................... Eastern Europe
Togarmah ................................. Southeastern Europe-Turkey
"Many peoples with thee" ...... Nations allied with RussiaUnofficially, the world is run by a prototype of the soon-coming global government. The G20 heads of state met in Cannes, France, as the world economy continues to reel in preparation for the coming one world economic system. The nations of the world are alarmed at the massive military buildup in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region, in what could be the prelude to Ezekiel 38 or the War of Gog and Magog. Israel seems to be preparing to launch a military strike against Iran.
In response to threats of an attack from Israel, Iran is threatening to mount an attack on Israel via the Syrian border. 30,000 Syrian and Palestinian militants are ready to infiltrate Israel in order to carry out suicide missions, the Iranian Fars news agency has reported [how long ago?].The European and U.S. banking cartels that form the Trans-Atlantic Union (which may constitute the Revived Roman Empire spoken of by the prophet Daniel) may support a strike by Israel against Iran and attack Iran and Syria under the auspices of NATO. As Ezekiel 38 predicts, Russia who is in partnership with Iran, transporting oil produced in Siberia and Iran to the Caspian Sea, may lead an invasion against Israel for oil or other strategic reasons.Military think-tanks are speculating that an attack on Iran will cause an immediate counter attack by the Islamic Republic [what entity are you referring to?] against U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf. Islamic forces under such a scenario are likely to strike oil fields, refineries, and desalination facilities in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the islands of the Persian Gulf, the U.A.E., Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait.Furthermore, an attack on Iran could induce Russia to enter the conflict, especially with Putin back in power. China is also dependent on oil from the Persian Gulf and could enter the conflict either economically or militarily. The NATO war on Libya allowed Britain and France to seize Chinese assets in that country. China owns a lot of US debt that they can use as leverage to free up such assets]Iran has openly threatened that an attack on Iran would inevitably lead to World War III. It is entirely possible that we could see a rapid acceleration of prophetic events, leading to the War of Gog and Magog. World War III and nukes going off in cities in the U.S. and Europe would provide ample reason for the people of the world to cry out for the imposition of a world government to quell the violence and bring peace at almost any cost.A War of Gog and Magog would motivate Israel to sign a peace treaty with the head of this global government. I go into detail on this in my new 3-DVD series entitled “Are You Ready for the Coming One World Government, One World Economic System and One World Religion?”Something very big is about to happen in the Middle East and soon. Right now there are 100,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, 30,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, and 27,000 U.S. troops in the Gulf states, as well as NATO, British, and American bases and naval forces. This is a massive Armageddon-like military build- up in the Middle East! A series of regional thermonuclear wars could break out with nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean.Israel has just tested its new Jericho missile that is capable of transporting multiple nuclear warheads deep into Iran. In addition, Israel is conducting air force maneuvers in Sardinia, Italy, which includes F-16 fighter jets capable of delivering nuclear weapons. According to DEBKA, “Israel successfully test-fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile on November 2, 2011." Foreign sources say the ICBM tested was an upgraded Jericho 3 able to carry a 750-kilo nuclear warhead to a distance of 7,000 kilometers, and further with a smaller warhead. Soon after the test, the IDF announced the Israeli and Italian air forces had concluded a joint maneuver at Sardinia, and a large-scale exercise had just begun to prepare central Israel for missile attack.”The new ICBM would therefore be capable of disabling Iran’s nuclear power program at facilities in Natanz, Isfahan and Arak. Although Iran has built an underground facility to guard against such an attack, the US has supplied Israel with GBU-28 bunker busters, capable of reaching such underground facilities. As for Iran's newest subterranean Fordo facility near Qom, the US supplied Israel with GBU-28 bunker busters.The world is in a critical time period. Israel is in the process of deciding if they are going to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s nuclear program. President Obama has asked the UN for tough new sanctions which Iran claims they would consider an act of war. There is the very real possibility that Iran already has nuclear weapons, along with terrorist sleeper cells in the U.S. ready to strike American cities should such sanctions be supported by the U.S. or should Israel launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran.Iran is already prepared to counter any sanctions with the help of Russia, China and India. Proceeds from its sale of oil already go through Russian banks, which keep the U.S. out of the loop. Russian banks are handling Iran's international financial transactions in currencies other than the US dollar – mostly the Russian ruble and Chinese Yuan. This continues to weaken the dollar as the world’s currency.A top Iranian naval commander is planning to send Iran’s warships into the Atlantic Ocean and, specifically, the Gulf of Mexico. The Iranian navy is no match for the U.S., but Iran has been building a presence in South America and is allied to Hugo Chavez’s government in Venezuela. In addition Iranian-financed Hezbollah is setting up operations in Cuba. Hezbollah has a presence in the Dirty Triangle area of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. “Like the arrogant powers that are present near our marine borders, we will also have a powerful presence close to American marine borders,” the Iranian state media quoted Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari as saying.In Ezekiel 38 and the War of Gog and Magog, Russia, Iran and an alliance of Middle Eastern nations attack Israel. Iran is currently already attacking Israel through various terrorist organizations. Beersheba, Ashkelon, Ashdod and Soderot are under missile attacks from Gaza. Israel’s defense weapon, called the Iron Dome, is not successfully intercepting the missiles. Either the Iron Dome is not functioning properly or as the IDF has suggested, it has been disarmed by Iranian specialist forces.A number of intelligence agencies believe that a US and/or Israel military strike against Iran, is in the works. A massive Russian-Central Asian military exercise simulating Iranian retaliation for a hypothetical strike on US-owned Caspian oil fields is being carried out. Is it more than coincidence that two of the most important nations in Ezekiel 38, Russia and Iran, are now maneuvering against Israel?In response, Israel can be expected to launch an air strike against Iranian nuclear facilities and send ships into the Persian Gulf. The Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf areas are the major distribution points for oil from Siberia and Iran to sell to Europe. A military conflict at this time could cause a global economic meltdown, riots in the streets, food shortages, martial law and mass chaos. Those who say,” Never let a good crisis go to waste,” will move quickly to radically transform our nation. The Fabian Socialists Bertrand Russell and H.G. Wells predicted a World War III that would break out in the Middle East. The Freemason leader, Albert Pike, also predicted World War III rising out of the Middle East and the prophet Ezekiel details this battle in Ezekiel 38. Many believe that the Illuminati control the international banking families. The Illuminati motto is, “Order out of Chaos,” by which they mean a New World Order, which President George H.W. Bush referred to in a speech to Congress in 1991, after the first Iraq invasion.The occult-based Illuminati plan for a new world order goes back before 1776. World War III and a major war in the Middle East is an essential part of the globalist strategy. Globalist organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, Committee of 300 and the Club of Rome are united in order to establish global government, a one world economic system and the coming one world religion. Behind the stroboscopic bombardment of the planned world chaos, generated by governments, economic manipulation, assassinations, terrorist attacks, illegal weapons and drug trade, like the massive drug cartel armies on the border of the U.S. and Mexico, the Illuminati strategy of “order out of chaos” is being implemented. One of the primary intentions of the globalists is to generate a massive Russian and Chinese strike on the West.People have commented to me, “Why would Russia or China use nukes when they could use EMP’s and win a war that preserves the assets and people of the U.S. at the same time? “ The reason is that the U.S., China and Russia have massive underground bunkers to withstand a nuclear confrontation. The globalists stand to gain by creating a nuclear crisis, to bring in their one world government and then they can pull down one of the governments like China, by making a secret deal for China to turn its back on Russia before a nuclear war begins. Russia and the world is willing to give up national sovereignty if the threat of nuclear war is used to produce radical social transformation.The globalists have been planning this new world order for over 100 years. They understand the Soviet/KGB science of mass brainwashing. On an individual it is possible to break a person down psychologically through brainwashing. This process is called trauma-based programming and can use things like physical torture, sleep deprivation and drugs. These are severe shocks to the system and hypnotic suggestions along with inducing altered states of consciousness can brainwash an individual or nation. The Russians took the psychology theories of Pavlovian conditioning and applied them to people and populations. Then came the father of Behavioral Psychology, B.F. Skinner, who developed “Operant Conditioning.” Skinner believed individuals and nations should be brainwashed. What most people do not understand is that both Russia, China, U.K., U.S. and Australia are under the science of mind control. The average American is in a trance state and has no idea about why he or she feels helpless in changing our society and restoring freedoms.The Book of Revelation talks about nuclear warfare during the Tribulation and the hypnotic power of the False Beast, who is the head of a one world economic system which distributes the “mark of the beast” and had billions of people in a deep hypnotic trance which is called the great delusion. Ironically, many people who are supposed to know the truth, such as Christians succumb to a global brainwashing process so powerful, that it is referred to as the “great apostasy.” No matter what your religious views or if you have any at all, the human individual has been created with the power to make history through intelligence and creative activity.When people surrender their minds over to a “great apostasy,” which they do by choice, they become fatalistic robots. Truth is not always pleasant. Copernicus' publication On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres, which stated that the Earth was not the center of the universe, was not published until after he died in order for him to avoid being persecuted by the Church. Often called the Copernican Revolution, this actually was not much of a revolution.The book was published in Latin, so the general public was not able to read it. Academics could, but few learned people were willing to face the Church and risk death. Jesus Christ got crucified for speaking truth to the religious system. The reality is that in much of what is called the Christian church, the surrender of the mind to apostasy has already occurred.
This explains the paralysis of many Christians in our time, especially the leadership, to engage evil and stand for truth. There are many true Christians to be sure. But, the fact that 40-60 million evangelical Christians in America alone are unable to protect our Constitutional freedoms or understand them, is proof that both mind control and apostasy has infected like a mental virus, just about every Christian institution in America. Marxist social theory has replaced Christ’s teachings on agape love. America, perhaps the last true free nation on earth, is about to be taken over suddenly and violently. Unless there is radical and instantaneous change, which our Founding Fathers called, “The Great Awakening,” we are heading to the abyss.The question I ask you is, are you part of the problem or part of the solution? You say you know the “Signs of the Times?’ But, do you know what to do with the “Signs of the Times? Seize the time!messianic prophetic scriptures of the lord jesus christ
