They’re Baaaaack — Russian Forces return to the Middle East
Verse of the Day
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Prophetic events are accelerating in all areas now. Russia is pouring weapons and soldiers into Syria. This will put the Russians on the border of Israel. There is a possibility that Russia will bring the Iranian army into Syria which Israel cannot allow. Tensions are arising all over the world.
Stay focused on the Lord otherwise fear could overcome you. There is no turning back now as God’s prophetic plan is starting to kick into high gear.
I am watching the UN very closely to see what it going to happen with Israel. Any pressure against Israel could trigger His judgment on America and the nations.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Isaiah 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
Israel and the Middle East War
Putin: ISIS has designs on Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, endangers Europe & Russia 09/16/15 Since Obama appears to be protecting ISIS in that he is playing games with the air assault, now Putin is filling the void. Russia is claiming to be the savior of Europe and Israel from ISIS. You can see right before your eyes, that the power is shifting away from America to Russia.
Putin is setting himself up as the savior and thus can expand Russian power. I think that this is brilliant on his part.
God is using Obama to strip away America’s global power because we are now a wicked nation ready for judgment.
“Islamic State has designs on the holy cities of Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem and endangers Europe and Russia, Vladimir Putin said. Moscow is concerned about IS-trained jihadists returning to EU countries, the CIS and Russia. The situation is very serious, Putin said, adding that Moscow is very worried that IS terrorists are publicly announcing their designs on Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. The jihadists also plan to spread their activities to Europe, Russia, central and southeastern Asia. “Extremists from many countries of the world, including, unfortunately, European counties, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) undertake ideological and military training in the ranks of Islamic State [IS, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL],” said Putin, speaking at the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) summit in Tajikistan’s capital, Dushanbe. “And certainly we are worried that they could possibly return.” Putin said it’s necessary for geopolitical ambitions to be set aside in the fight against IS terrorists”
Satellite Image Leaves No Doubt That Russia Is Throwing Troops and Aircraft Into Syria 09/16/15 This is a great article about current events in Syria with the Russians pouring in troops and equipment. What comes to mind is that the Russian economy is collapsing, so how far can Russia go with Syria and how long?
“What Russia has done, however, is make it clear that it will not let Assad fall. He can’t win, but Russia won’t let him lose. That dooms Syria to what looks like endless war, as Assad fights to the last man. There are those who see Syria as a quagmire for Putin, a kind of matched pair to our own folly in Iraq; just as Washington collectively saw Afghanistan as payback for Vietnam. I am not so sanguine.”
They’re Baaaaack — Russian Forces return to the Middle East 09/16/15 This is a great article which gives very good information about the history of Israeli vs Russian confrontations in the Middle East.
“And so now Israel finds itself in a situation not too dissimilar to the one it faced in July 1970. The Russian S-300 missiles and MIG 31s which are moving into Syria threaten the IAF’s freedom of action there, where it has intervened occasionally to limit the movement of weaponry to Hizb’allah and to keep the Golan front quiet. No doubt the IAF could shoot the Russian MIG 31s out of the sky as easily as it did Soviet MIG 21s four decades ago, but the costs of such a move, then as now, are unpredictable. Whether and how Israel handles the Russian MIGs may well define how Russia’s reentry to the Middle East goes. One thing Israel cannot count on, with Obama in office, is that the U.S. will have its back.”
US Air Force: Russia Makes ‘Alarming’ Strides in Air Power 09/14/15 Obama is weakening America in every way while Russia and China prepare for war. I really believe that Russia will attack while Obama is president because he is weak and such a poor leader. Now is their best chance because a real American might be elected. I fully believe that God is raising up Russia as a “rod of judgment” against America. It is no coincidence that Russia is becoming so strong as America tampered with God’s holy institution of marriage. Where is God’s church in all this?
“A U.S. Air Force general on Monday cited what he called “alarming” moves by the Russian military to beef up its air forces in the years since the invasion of Georgia in 2008 and to establish firm defenses around areas like Crimea. General Frank Gorenc, commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, told reporters he was concerned about Russia’s moves to increase the quantity and quality of its aircraft and field unmanned aircraft. “The advantage that we had from the air, I can honestly say, is shrinking,” Gorenc said at the annual Air Force Association conference. Gorenc called “alarming” both Russia’s investments in modernizing its air force and in building formidable surface-to-air missile defenses. Two examples of the latter are defenses set up around the Crimea region of Ukraine, which Russia annexed in 2014, and Kaliningrad, a Russia enclave between Poland and Lithuania. U.S. officials often warn of strides by China in developing defenses against U.S. stealth fighters and bombers and more capable surface-to-air missiles, but Gorenc said Russia was making similar moves. “This is not just a Pacific problem; it is as significant in Europe as it is anywhere else on the planet,” he said. “I don’t think it’s controversial to say they’ve closed the gap in capability.”
Arab League Threatens Action Against Israel Over Al-Aqsa 09/14/15 Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
Once again, the Temple Mount comes into play as the focus of world attention. This is not going away but is going to be more and more intense. It is very possible that the Temple Mount could trigger a war or throw gasoline on a conflict to make it an all-out war. Notice the timing how the Temple Mount is coming into focus at this time as so much is happening now in the Middle East. In the very end, the final battle that triggers the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will be fought over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Events that we are seeing are falling into place for that final battle.
“The Arab League on Sunday warned against the “Judaization of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israel” and called for action against the Jewish state, Channel 2 News reported. The condemnation came after masked Muslim rioters hurled rocks and fireworks at police on the Temple Mount, as well as firebombs near two entrances to the site. Jerusalem District Police and Border Police were forced to respond with riot dispersal measures. No injuries were reported during the clashes. “We warn Israel – do not allow Jews to pray inside the mosque and do not allow extremist settlers to break in and harm its holiness,” the foreign ministers of the Arab League warned, according to Channel 2 News. “Israel is the occupying power and bears the consequences of its actions – we call for the protection of the Palestinian civilians and their holy places against Israeli attacks which will deteriorate the region to violence and conflict,” the statement continued. The ministers also threatened that they would turn to international legal institutions to prevent Israeli activity in the area, including the International Court in The Hague.”

California fire updates: Valley fire among the most destructive in state history 09/15/15 First the record droughts and now the record fires. There does not appear to be any letup coming from the Lord. These states are hardened in sin and most kill massive amounts of babies and promote the homosexual agenda. Many in the church are breathing in the smoke from the fires, but still fail to cry out to the Lord. Join us in prayer as we cry out to the Lord and all are welcome.
“With 12 major fires raging throughout the state, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that the way the federal government pays for wildfire suppression exacerbates the problem. “California is suffering from one of the worst fire seasons in decades,” she said in a statement . “Unfortunately, the way we pay for firefighting activities worsens the situation.” Feinstein noted that the U.S. Forest Service will borrow $700 million this year to fight fires that are currently burning, siphoning funds away from prevention efforts like removing brush and dead trees. “This approach means California and other Western states will be even more vulnerable to devastating wildfires next year as vital prevention programs are delayed, sometimes indefinitely.”
Psalm 107:33,34 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
Since the vast numbers of Christians and pastors in California are not crying out to the Lord, the state has no hope as it is really hardening in its sin. Even if rains do come it will not be enough and will be destructive like with floods and landslides. This state is doomed as the church lost the fear of God and appears to be comfortable with the sin of this state.
“Snow cover in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, a water lifeline for California’s cities and agriculture, has hit its lowest level in 500 years, a study said Monday. Measured on April 1, the natural, frozen reservoir was barely five percent of the 1950-2000 average, threatening tens of millions of Californians and the state’s $50-billion (44-billion-euro) agriculture sector with chronic water shortages, its authors warned. And things were set to get worse, they wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change. “We should be prepared for this type of snow drought to occur much more frequently because of rising temperatures,” lead author Valerie Trouet, a professor at the University of Arizona, said in a statement.”
1Thess 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
