Beware: The Russians ARE COMING!

While attempting to keep my feet warm this morning, due to an overabundance of snow (obviously produced by the effects of Global Warming!), I ran across an event that has received little or no attention in the West. If you recall, Ezekiel 38 and 39 clearly define the partners of an international (predominantly Arab) coalition that will descend upon the mountains surrounding Israel in order to wipe the Jews off the map, or at least subdue them into dividing their land. (Joel 3)
The nations mentioned by Ezekiel are Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Central Asian Nations, Libya, and the Horn of Africa nations of Sudan and Ethiopia. Amazingly, it seems the ball might be rolling in Ezekiel's direction. Read this article from today's (Dec. 27) Jerusalem Post and raise your eyebrows. You may want to read earlier posts to get a feel for the "bigger picture" as well. Gog and Magog appear to be packing their gear and getting ready to march.

Diplomacy: The Russians Are Coming

In a luxury hotel at Suweima, on the eastern shores of the Dead Sea, the Russians held a "Track II" conference this week designed to send a clear message to the Arab world: "We are back."

The conference, covered widely in the Arab world but hardly at all in Israel, took place just weeks after the re-launch - after an absence of some 18 years - of an Arabic version of the Moscow News. It also comes at a time of diplomatic stagnation in the Middle East that has led to increased calls from many quarters - particularly the Palestinians and the EU - for various actors in the international community to step in and impose a solution on the parties.
Russia, obviously, wants to be one of these actors. Hence the two-day conference, part of the Valdai Discussion Club, put on jointly by the Ria Novosti, the Russian News and Information Agency funded by the government, and the Russian Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, the equivalent to the Council on Foreign relations in the US.
The organizers invited a slew of Mideast experts from Russia and the region - including Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, the "State of Palestine," Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey, with a couple of people from the UK, US and France thrown in for good measure - to discuss whether a comprehensive settlement is possible in the Middle East by 2020.
The hope of the conference, said Sergei Karaganov of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy at its outset, was to "generate fresh ideas." Forget about it. The real agenda, it seems, was to implant in the Arab public a sense that Russia has returned to the region and is a player.

As my preacher/father used to say....stay prayed up, paid up, and ready to go up! Good advice. Jesus said in Luke 21:34-36; "But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strenght to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man."
