Gog-Magog Update: ‘Door of Destruction’ stands wide-open – Veronika West

I copied this from Koenig’s World Watch Daily when booting up this pc and intended posting about Ezekiel 38 being still in play after dealing with top-priority tasks, only to find our dear sister has beaten me to ‘the draw’!

Great minds think alike – or more likely, Holy Spirit’s getting us ‘over target’!

Gog-Magog Update: The Bear, the Dragon and the Beast from the East – Veronika West

Are Bible and modern prophecy lining up? 3 – Gog-Magog update, Russia & Iran

To enable this to get out after a late-afternoon of internet dropouts – even corrections failing – I’m limiting this posting to screenshots of news connecting the prophecies Veronika West brought into the ongoing Gog-Magog alliance of chapter 38 in prophet Ezekiel’s book.

A week or so ago I was taking so-called ‘friendly-fire’ from someone adamantly insistent this prophecy has been fulfilled, according to medieval historians – BUT IF that’s true, then how come modern scholars STILL say its eschatalogical?  AND how come the specific modern-day nations of great military prowess are in an operational alliance???  SEE below, in reverse chronological order:

AND this doesn’t include modern rabbinic prophecies!!

3 prophecies fulfilled in Biden’s State Of The Union slip-of-tongue

Is it yet another of ‘Resident’ Biden’s gaffes, OR did the Lord make him unwittingly refer to the Gog-Magog alliance whilst making his most important speech to the nation’s political representatives of all 50 states of the American republic! 

Source: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/03/biden-putin-may-circle-kiev-tanks-never-gain-hearts-souls-iranian-people-video/

We recently considered prophesied ‘slips of the tongue’ in Prophecy Fulfilled on Spoken Slips made by Biden Regime and let’s remind ourselves of the specific part of the Word from the Lord of 17th December to Amanda Grace (emphases mine, colour as original):

“And says the Lord of Hosts, the mouth of the one in a White House shall get tongue-tied and twisted as the Spirit of truth descends upon their stump. And they shall reveal the secrets and keys to a plan gone rogue, more lone wolves says the Lord, and they shall connect back. As the donkey so spoke truth to Balaam so the donkeys shall be kicking themselves as they lose control of their mouths at MY WORD and they shall make slips of the century, slips of the tongue that shall change some of the narratives, says the Lord of Hosts, truth serum shall be slipped as those who serve the constitution and this nation have become more and more EAGER to execute operations under the cuff, says the Lord of Hosts….”

Here’s the part of the Lord gave Veronika West on 22nd February in The Bear, The  Beast from the East and The Dragon

…I say Beloved, Watch and Pray, and pay close attention, for in the days ahead the right hand of The Bear Nation shall shake hands with the right hand of the nation of Turkey and a powerful alliance will be created, and then the two shall come into agreement to form a threefold cord of allegiance with the Beast of The East with a desire to destroy the land flowing with milk and honey….”

In the footnotes to that post I drew attention to Ezekiel 38-39 which refers to the Gog-Magog alliance of Russia, Turkey and Iran and is implicit in this contemporary word, as delivered by Veronika.

Therefore, Joe Biden’s prophesied ‘tongue-tied and twisted’ words were directed, as Amanda Grace stated, by The Spirit and turned from “Ukranian” into “Iranian”, and this mistake alludes directly to the connection between Persia/Iran and ‘Gog’ Russia, as in the words given to Ezekiel and to Veronika West.

Ezekiel 38 Gog-Magog and Veronika West prophecies on Russia – a recap

In view of events in The Ukraine, a clarification of my linking the prophecies Veronika West brought on ‘The Bear’ to the Gog-Magog alliance (Russia, Turkey and Iran) of Ezekiel chapter 38 may be of help.

News subsequent to the word she received on the Bear nation arising with a hunger for war, reminded me of Old Testament prophet Daniel’s vision of four beasts.

A month later the first part of what Veronika heard about The Bear, the Beast from the East and the Dragon focused clearly upon The Ukraine (emphases mine):

“Watch and Pray, for did I not say that The Bear Nation has emerged from a time of political hibernation with a hunger for War and an appetite for greater territorial occupation and domination among The Nations?

Yes!  And did I not say that the Dragon Spirit would strike, and The Bear Nation would invade to take a rich and fertile land?

I say Beloved, Watch and Pray, and pay close attention, for in the days ahead the right hand of The Bear Nation shall shake hands with the right hand of the nation of Turkey and a powerful alliance will be created, and then the two shall come into agreement to form a threefold cord of allegiance with the Beast of The East with a desire to destroy the land flowing with milk and honey.

But I say, Nay!  Nay, for when their diabolical plan begins to unfold, a great unraveling will take place, and the demonic threefold cord shall surely be broken, and the strength and military power of The Bear Nation shall be brought to nought.…”

Although it refers initially to the Bear’s neighbouring nation, I noted the reference to a 3-fold alliance involving another and different neighbour as well as what is indubitably the bellicose Muslim regime of Iran – exactly foretold in Ezekiel’s hearing the Lord about the God-Magog alliance and its intention of invading Israel. Also, the oft-used scriptural description of the Promised Land is of a ‘land flowing with milk and honey’.

AND I recalled how it states the Almighty will put a hook in Gog and his alliance!‘ ‘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…’

That post linked into a previous Update bearing news of Iran’s president visiting Putin, who is backing their stance in atomic weapons negotiations in Vienna.

THUS, in the midst of the deeply distressing Russian invasion of The Ukraine – and many important aspects ignored by mainstream media – we mustn’t lose sight of how the words brought by Veronika, and those events, are in accord with Bible prophecy!

LATEST NEWS:

Two important prophetic words and explanation re Gog-Magog – Veronika West

These two prophetic words were posted yesterday by Veronika, please read in full at His Kingdom Prophecy by clicking these links:

WATCH & PRAY AS A POLITICAL DOMINO-EFFECT COMES INTO PLAY

A DIVINE CONVERGENCE ZONE OVER A WAR ZONE

To the latter Veronika adds a helpful explanatory Postscript in reply to this question:

“What do you think to Ezekiel 38 Gog and Magog? Because that’s what I’m “feeling”.
“Gog” is “the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal”. The proper translation is “The Prince of Rosh. Meshech and Tubal!” In Hebrew, the word for chief is “Rosh”. That is also the ancient name for “Russia”. So GOG is The Prince of Rosh, or the president or ruler of Rosh. Simply put. – the President or ruler of Russia.”

Yes! The timeline of God is unfolding, but we must also recognise that Satan is endeavouring to accelerate the timeline to destroy the Harvest.

This is why we are seeing the great upheavals, as we pray let us seek wisdom understanding and discernment of the times so we rightly align.

It concerns me that some are just taking the back-foot, because they hold onto a false hope narrative that says, “Don’t worry, it’s all just going to be fine and everything we desire will be sitting in front of us after the dust settles!” This is being in denial not walking in true discernment.

Unfortunately many in The Body have an “Escapism Mindset”. The LORD is not as concerned about our comfort than he is about our character. The road to The Cross was one of suffering, not satisfaction and comfort.

To truly understand the times, we must recognise that prophetically, Nations are now being separated and sifted.

This should not bring fear, but rather a greater expectation for the greater outpouring of the glory that is to come.

Take a look at the Word I gave on what Nations will look like as the weight of His Glory falls… The weight of His Glory will dismantle destroy, uproot and tear-down, expose and purify, but it will also build, establish and plant the new.

When The Glory comes, Nations will be brought to their knees.

Blessings to you all.

Gog-Magog Update: The Bear, the Dragon and the Beast from the East – Veronika West

Last night Veronika published what she’d earlier in the day heard from the Lord :

Click image to visit SeekGrowLove’s website

THE BEAR, THE BEAST FROM THE EAST AND THE DRAGON

In prayer this afternoon while seeking The LORD concerning The Nations, I heard The Spirit say,  “Watch and Pray, for did I not say that The Bear Nation has emerged from a time of political hibernation with a hunger for War and an appetite for greater territorial occupation and domination among The Nations?

Yes!  And did I not say that the Dragon Spirit would strike, and The Bear Nation would invade to take a rich and fertile land?

I say Beloved, Watch and Pray, and pay close attention, for in the days ahead the right hand of The Bear Nation shall shake hands with the right hand of the nation of Turkey and a powerful alliance will be created, and then the two shall come into agreement to form a threefold cord of allegiance with the Beast of The East with a desire to destroy the land flowing with milk and honey.

But I say, Nay!  Nay, for when their diabolical plan begins to unfold, a great unraveling will take place, and the demonic threefold cord shall surely be broken, and the strength and military power of The Bear Nation shall be brought to nought.

But!  Watch and Pray for surely I tell you, the eye of Leviathan is now upon the fruitful Vineyard, and the tail of The Dragon Spirit is thrashing in the realm of The Spirit, to stir up turmoil and trouble for The Nation of Taiwan.

But I say, keep Watch and Pray, and stay alert, for False Flags and the pointing of fingers will take place to bring a desired distraction from that which is now being fully exposed and uncovered in the realm of darkness.

For I tell you, this is the beginning of birthing pangs as greater and greater shakings and divine disruptions take place as Nation rises against Nation.

For in The Valley of Decision, goat and sheep nations are now being sifted and shifted, scattered and gathered up.

Look and see, for a Demonic Convergence is now taking place over Nations in the midst of birthing, as the spirit of the Antichrist rises to resist the advancement of My Righteous Remnant Army, as they build and establish My Kingdom Government in The Nations of the earth.

And watch!  As the spirits of deception and death masquerade as messengers of light, but come seeking to divide and conquer, dominate and occupy more and more territory, by striking fear and torment in the hearts.

Many who have become woke, weak and willing vessels, have fully submitted and surrendered themselves to an Antichrist Agenda and to a One World Order.

I say again — Watch and Pray.  For The Bear Nation shall bite down hard, and the tail of The Dragon Nation shall suddenly strike without warning in the coming days!”

Blessings to you all.

Gog-Magog update: leaked tape of ‘puppet’ Kerry and Zaif

In my post of last Thursday on Donna Rigney’s prophecy that confirms exposures of corruption through forthcoming ‘leaks’ I gave some screenshots of supportive media headlines. In referring to the above I said details of this leak’s source are especially interesting with respect to the Gog-Magog alliance.

In actual fact, I’d awoken on Tuesday 27th April with a sense of American betrayal of Israel and so the news from USA about John Kerry’s chats with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zaif may be of direct relevance. You may recall my blogging on Kim Clement’s Two Presidents prophecy that US would no longer be reliable ally.

Later that day, I was alerted to Karen Edeling’s comment about Kerry on my post of 23 April on Prophetic Words for USA about the possibility of US military taking action. She refers to this video of Robin Bullock posted 16 April in which he claims to have ‘overheard’ plotters deciding to use John Kerry in their secret schemes:

(From 0:40) – “I heard the name ‘John Kerry’…Now something is moving in the Spirit concerning him. I don’t know exactly what’s about to take place, but I know his name’s being thrown around in the spirit-world right now. And I’m hearing things discussed in private by people for they say,

“We make our plans, let’s use Kerry, let’s bring him and use him this time. He’s no good for anything else – let’s use him in this area. I hear them talk, I see their faces, for their strategies now are going to use a new puppet – let’s use John Kerry. Yes, yes.”

(At 1:58) – “But “NAY” says the Lord. “I am going to unleash a torrent, a river into this earth…”

So, the later news-leak of John Kerry having revealed Israeli attacks upon Syria to Iran’s FM can’t be coincidental. However, we need to examine such a claim carefully and so I dug out the original article on this matter:

Previously a senior writer and war correspondent for the Wall Street Journal for 17 years based in the Middle East, Farnaz Fassihi is now based in New York and she tells how she learned about this private, leaked tape:

‘The recording, of a conversation in March between Mr. Zarif and an economist named Saeed Leylaz, an ally, was not meant for publication, as the foreign minister can be heard repeatedly saying on the audio. A copy was leaked to the London-based Persian news channel Iran International, which first reported on the recording and shared it with The New York Times.’

The part relating to John Kerry is very brief BUT is undated and its position within the disclosure suggest his remarks were made relatively recently, yet it was more likely they were made during his tenure in the pre-2017 Obama administration (and on Kerry’s activity I’ve blogged many times). I’ve also covered some of the Israeli and US actions against Iran from DebkaFile reports and The Four Signposts.

Here’s Farnaz’ reference set in context:

‘On the night that Iran decided to retaliate against the United States for the killing of General Suleimani, two Quds Force commanders went to see the Iraqi prime minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, to inform him that in about 45 minutes Iran would be firing missiles at a military base where U.S. troops were stationed, Mr. Zarif said. The Americans knew about the strike before he did.

‘Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Mr. Zarif said.

‘He also pointed to the cover-up of the Guards’ downing of a Ukrainian jetliner in Iran that killed 176 on board on the morning after Iran attacked the air base. The Guards knew immediately that their missiles had hit the plane, but only admitted to it three days later….’

Kerry’s subsequent denial is, in my opinion, possibly a tenable position because it was well-known that, for its national self-defence, Israel had to make frequent forays against Iranian and Syrian positions. From Zaif’s account of his rivalry with the Iranian general and the fact of total military oversight nationally and internationally, he could possibly have been ignorant of the truth about that Syrian situation!!

EZEKIEL 38-39, GOG-MAGOG ALLIANCE

However, Farnaz’s earlier paragraphs make even more informative reading (emphases mine):

‘In a leaked audiotape that offers a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes power struggles of Iranian leaders, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Revolutionary Guards Corps call the shots, overruling many government decisions and ignoring advice.

‘In one extraordinary moment on the tape that surfaced Sunday, Mr. Zarif departed from the reverential official line on Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the commander of the Guards’ elite Quds Force, the foreign-facing arm of Iran’s security apparatus, who was killed by the United States in January 2020.

‘The general, Mr. Zarif said, undermined him at many steps, working with Russia to sabotage the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and adopting policies toward Syria’s long war that damaged Iran’s interests.

“In the Islamic Republic the military field rules,” Mr. Zarif said in a three-hour taped conversation that was a part of an oral history project documenting the work of the current administration. “I have sacrificed diplomacy for the military field rather than the field servicing diplomacy.”…

‘In the portions that were leaked, Mr. Zarif does praise the general and says they worked productively together in the prelude to the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. He also says that by assassinating him in Iraq, the United States delivered a major blow to Iran, more damaging than if it had wiped out an entire city in an attack.

‘But he said some of Mr. Suleimani’s actions also damaged the country, citing, as one example, his moves against the nuclear deal Iran reached in 2015 with Western nations, the United States among them (the Trump administration later renounced it).

‘Mr. Zarif said Russia did not want the agreement to succeed and “put all its weight” behind creating obstacles because it was not in Moscow’s interests for Iran to normalize relations with the West. To that end, Mr. Zarif said, General Suleimani traveled to Russia to “demolish our achievement,” meaning the nuclear deal.

Mr. Zarif took issue with General Suleimani on other fronts, criticizing him for allowing Russian warplanes to fly over Iran to bomb Syria and for moving military equipment and personnel to Syria on the state-owned Iran Air airline without the knowledge of the government and deploying Iranian ground forces to Syria.’

THE PLOTTERS: BIDEN AND CIA ?

Last week I was able to read Iran International’s Twitter platform and spotted this intriguing reference to Biden’s CIA director Burns meeting in Iranians in Iraq!

SO let’s keep watching for the fulfillment of Biblical and contemporary prophecies.

The Lord says, “WATCH WHAT I WILL DO!” – Neil Mackereth

Long-time followers of this blog may recall the many solid contributions from Neil Mackereth, especially about Brexit (as in his first, Stay or Leave?), and my review of his book Signs, The Significance of Bible Prophecy.

We’ve known one another for over 10 years since the Sat ‘encounter evenings’ at Winchester Vineyard Church, and then I attended two years of his highly informative evening courses on End-times. Hence my high motivation to write!

A week ago today, Thursday 3rd October, I received this email from him and draw your attention to its content, especially the start of the second paragraph in the light of the Bercow-Brussels conspiracy revealed only yesterday!!

‘Hi Richard…

TURMOIL

‘The Lord made it clear to me some weeks ago that we should not get drawn into playing the devil’s games. I had a download this morning.:

“Why are the people in tumult; why do the MPs plot in vain? Many in Parliament rise up: the Remainers band together against the will of the Lord.

“Indeed, the ones who should know better meet together with the unelected EU leaders, in Westminster and in Brussels, to conspire against the will of the people of Great Britain. In doing so they conspire against My Holy Name, against My power and authority, not understanding that these things have been ordained. My plans will not be thwarted: this shaking and revealing was decided long ago. Their hearts and intentions, threats and deceits, are being laid bare. The outcome will not be what they expect, the outcome will not be what you expect! Do not panic or play their games, WATCH WHAT I WILL DO!”

Prayer: Please Lord: empower us to pray with heartfelt passion and anguish: to speak with great boldness your word and your will into the turmoil of our Nation. Stretch out your hand we beseech you; heal our land and perform signs and wonders that reveal the reality of Your power and authority, that those who do not know you will see the Glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and be saved. Amen

”I noticed your comment re the white horse in Revelation 6 (it is the first horse, at the opening of the first seal). Derek Prince suggested that it represents Jesus sending out the Gospel to the nations for one last call (opportunity) before the 3 subsequent horses.

As ever, amazed at your stamina and devotion to the watch-keeper and herald role at this unprecedented time of upheaval.

‘Blessings,

Neil

‘PS. The Lord has told me (and I know you are excellent at keeping it in view) that I am not to lose sight of Turkey, Iran and Russia, (Gog and Magog) and the resurgence, re-emergence of the Ottoman Empire.

‘PPS (4 Oct) Just read Professor Finnis’ assessment of the Supreme Court judgement – very revealing – the demonic web of intrigue and deception is insinuating/permeating every level of society.

‘Iran’s Press TV tweeted in English on Wednesday with a quote from Turkey’s leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “Nuclear power should be forbidden for all or permissible for all.” Press TV included an image of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appearing to be sweating.

‘Iran’s message wasn’t a secret: the account tagged Erdogan and included the hashtag “#IsraelisExempt”. What is more secretive is the Iran-Turkey-Russia alliance that is emerging and illustrated via state-controlled media.

‘RT, a Russian television network, similarly highlights the greatness of Turkey and Iran as part of a campaign that clearly indicates Moscow’s support for the two. On Wednesday, it tweeted about Iran showcasing its drone expertise amid tensions in the Gulf. It also shared images from Erdogan’s speech in which he slammed Israel. Russian news agency Sputnik similarly highlighted comments by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday morning. “Turkey will probably never buy American aircraft again,” Sputnik noted as well.’

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ game-changing event on Israel’s border

This morning’s news brings a reminder, in the midst of the current political upheavals, of what Bible prophecy points to: an almighty battle near the Mount of Megiddo, otherwise known in Greek as ‘Armageddon’!

In the previous update we heard about Russia and China’s increasing influence in Africa and noted publication of a most comprehensive US Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” documenting Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. Now comes this development:

DebkaFile reports Russia lets Hezbollah-Iranian forces redeploy opposite Syrian-Israel border; in other words, it looks like Putin has reneged upon his agreement with Israel and USA (emphasis mine). This exclusive reads:

‘Deep apprehension in Israel over a Russian U-turn, which is letting small Iranian Al Qods and Hizballah units regain former positions 10-15km from the Israeli and Jordanian borders. They are coming back after Russian forces drove them out last year and established a safe zone at those border districts in their stead.

‘Reporting this turn of events, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources add that the Russian forces, not content with allowing this Iranian-Hizballah comeback, have also evacuated their own positions, leaving the local population under the control of the Al Qods and Hizballah invaders. These actions violate Russian President Vladimir Putin’s commitment last year to US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to purge S. Syrian borders of the hostile elements ruled from Tehran and provide monitors for a safe zone.

‘Washington and Jerusalem have interceded strongly with Moscow against this breach while trying to establish whether they were ordered from Putin’s office in the Kremlin or the local command on a directive from the Russian defense ministry. For now, neither the US nor Israel has decided how to respond to the new pro-Iranian buildup at Israel’s back door. They are also trying to find out if the Russian step is Moscow’s response to the US-Turkish safe zone initiative for northeastern Syria. This week, a large American unit landed in southern Turkey to start activating the joint US-Turkish safe zone, which aims to separate the Turkish army from the pro-US SDF militia which is dominated by Syrian Kurds. Moscow may have opened the door to Iran in southern Syria to counter expanding US involvement in the north.

‘Israel showed first resistance to the new hostile presence at its border on July 24 by firing surface missiles at the intelligence stations Iran was setting up on the Tal Al-Harara hilltop opposite the Golan border. But the Russian move continued notwithstanding.’

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ moves into Africa and meets ‘Kings of the East’

Ezekiel 38
Gog and Allies Attack Israel

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, [a]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, [b]Ethiopia, and [c]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…”

Ezekiel 39
Gog’s Armies Destroyed

“And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel…”  (NKJV – BibleGateway)

In last Friday’s in-depth news-roundup Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House, the presidential seat’s ‘resident’ Christian journalist William Koenig reports:

‘The Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” presented by Anna Borshchevskaya is extremely comprehensive. It documents Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. It also shows how Russia is out-positioning the United States in many countries. The testimony even mentioned that Benjamin Netanyahu has met with Russian President Vladimir Putin more often than he did with the Obama administration or has with the Trump White House. I highly recommend you take the time to read the entire testimony.‘ (emphasis mine)

Here’s some of its pertinent parts that Bill quotes:

  • With a combination of aggression and diplomacy, Russian president Vladimir Putin has ensured Russia’s long-term prominence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Washington must now take Moscow into account in the region to a degree it hasn’t had to for years.
  • Moscow’s September 2015 military intervention in Syria was a game changer, but it’s important to remember that, prior to the intervention, Putin had worked methodically and consistently for at least fifteen years to return Russia to the Middle East—a region that has historically mattered to Russian rulers. While he had achieved considerable influence by as early as 2010, the Syria intervention officially restored Russia’s place as a critical regional player and helped position Putin as a regional power-broker.
  • Putin has developed pragmatic ties with every government and major opposition movement in the region—an approach that has proven more successful than the Soviet Union’s ideological blinkering.
  • The region’s leaders feel comfortable dealing with Putin, who appeals to their self-interest. They covet Russian weaponry and hedge their bets in the uncertainty of U.S. policy. Moscow doesn’t ask Middle East leaders to improve the human rights situation in their countries.
  • American allies in the region, from Egypt, Turkey, Israel, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and Morocco, to one degree or another, have come to see Putin as a necessary reality and a more reliable partner than the United States—a mediator who can talk to all sides. Not only has the Kremlin courted every major government and opposition movement in the region, but increasingly, they conversely court the Kremlin.
  • The Kremlin has been careful and holds its cards close when it comes to its ultimate intentions in Libya, but Russia’s presence in the country is real:
  • Saudi Arabian King Salman made a historic visit to Moscow in October 2017, which demonstrates Moscow’s accepted prominence in the region.
  • Arms and nuclear deals play an important role in Egypt’s increasingly closer ties to Russia.
  • Moscow is also building Turkey’s nuclear power plant. Erdogan’s ongoing discussion about the purchase of S- 400’s from Moscow would have been unthinkable even a decade ago but increasingly appears to reflect reality rather than mere posturing.
  • Morocco has grown closer to Russia in terms of Moscow’s support for Morocco’s nuclear energy.

CHINA

The Testimony also covers China’s involvement in the Middle East, which so far is mainly economic with a military and political component.

Also, here’s ‘Rosh’, the leader of the Gog-Magog alliance at a summit with that ‘king’ of the East, who stated that,

Beijing will continue to promote steady development of ties with Tehran no matter how the situation changes.” Xi condemned Washington’s unilateral pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran as the main reason behind rising tensions in the region, calling for the promotion of multilateralism. He stressed that Beijing will continue its strategic relations with Tehran in various fields, including fighting terrorism and systematic crimes.’

Let’s see what scripture says about them in Revelation 16:

Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up

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 [g]of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

22 biblically-related news headlines in one week!

Within days of New Year’s Day seven years ago I introduced this blog’s first readers to the Watcher in The White House, accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, in Points to Ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles. It was the first of occasional sorties into the nature of Time and the Bible, now collated in this hub – Time: a Primer.

In last Friday’s Eye View from the White House Bill opens his weekly report with…

“22 significant new events that happened this week – This has been an amazing week of prophetic significance with continued final-day alignment activities” and briefly reports upon activities and then enumerates the events as follows:

“The following are news articles that are prophetically significant. Below the news is insight and information regarding Secretary Pompeo’s trip and more news.

Bill doesn’t refer to specific bible prophecies because most of his readership, like mine, is familiar with Old and New Testament prophecies. [Those covering current events in the Middle-East are Daniel 7-8 (the vision of four beasts, the goat and ram), Zecharia 12 (Jerusalem and its enemies) and Ezekiel 36-19 (Gog & Magog) in the main.]

Next, he outlines the points Secretary Pompeo made in his speech in Cairo, which was a sensible turnaround of the seriously flawed one addressed to the whole Muslim world by Obama in 2009. [My critiques of Obama’s Cairo Speech followed by Europe and Two Daniels (ie. the EU) were some of my early emails on end-times.]

Subsequently, Debka reports Sunni Arab leaders are very uneasy about America pulling out of their region in the face of Iranian aggression, but they have to learn to look after themselves – in my opinion they will draw more closely alongside Israel, an alignment that started months ago.  Also, it’s a necessary part of shaking off the shackles of the Obama pro-Iranian legacy.

For in-depth consideration of Trump’s new policy see Carolyn Glick:

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ axis moves onto financial footing

Latest developments on ‘axis of infamy’ foreseen by OT prophet Ezekiel is that last week’s Putin-Rouhani-Erdogan summit in Tehran determined ways of circumventing US economic sanctions against their three nations (ie Russia, Iran and Turkey).

Once their troops in Syria overcome the rebels last stronghold in Idlib then Syria will be rebuilt and become a sanctions-busting hub. According to DebkaFile, ‘the three leaders forged an economic-strategic pact to create measures for fighting American sanctions. One measure approved was to contract all business deals among Russia, Iran and Turkey, including gas and oil, in local currencies instead of American dollars. The same rule would apply to banking transactions….US and Israel paid special note to the trilateral decision reached in Tehran to convert the massive projects for Syria’s post-war recovery (after Iran had solidified its military foothold there) into a back-door hatch for escaping US sanctions against Iran. During the Obama presidency, Oman and Abu Dhabi served this purpose; under Donald Trump, it will pass to Damascus, with the added benefit of protection from the deepening Russian-Iranian-Syrian military cooperation…’

Many have long suspected events are well on the way to final fulfillment of the prophecy of the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1). With ‘Basher’ Assad’s obliteration of rebel areas, large parts of that capital are already in ruins!

‘Gog-Magog’ on ‘front-burner’: Iran’s president warned “Never, ever threaten the US again or…”

We read in the previous post about Putin’s response to PM Netanyahu’s no-nonsense stance on the presence of his Iranian ally’s proxy forces on the Israel-Syrian border. After posting that I read the news-feed on Koenig’s World Watch Daily of President Trump’s reaction to Iranian president Rouhani threatening America with “the mother of all wars”!  He tweeted:

(Source: CNBC; for more on Iran’s perspective see BIN.)

So, around the 6th anniversary of the previous Iranian president’s End-times threat to Israel announced in the United Nations – plus years of belligerent threats, including that of “the mother of all wars” (ie. ‘Armageddon’), as oft’ reported here – at long last there’s now someone with a very big stick promising to make them eat their words!

Thank you Donald.
