What Will Putin Do With Six More Years of Power? | theTrumpet.com


An Army of 200 Million
The Bible warns people in the end time to expect a great power to rise from the East. Scripture calls this power “the kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12). In Revelation 9:16, the Apostle John recorded a stunning prophecy about this Eastern power bloc: “And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand.”
This Asian military bloc will have an army of 200 million men!
The Bible provides many vital details about this largest army ever assembled. Daniel 11:44, 12:1 and Matthew 24:21-22 make clear that this force will be one of the main players in a nuclear World War iii.
A passage in Ezekiel tells which specific countries will contribute soldiers to this mega-army, and shows that it will be led by one nation—and one man.
The ‘Prince of Russia’
“[S]on of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him” (Ezekiel 38:1-2).
Bible scholars generally agree that “Gog” refers to Russia and “the land of Magog” includes the vast area where modern-day China is located.
Meshech is a group of people whose name appears throughout history in several variations: Musku, Muski, Mushki. These are related to the modern Russian spelling of Moscow: Москва.
Tubal refers to another region of Russia. To the east of Russia’s Ural Mountains lies the city of Tobolsk, a name derived from the ancient name Tubal. Tobolsk formerly functioned essentially as the capital of Russia’s central and eastern Asian region.
Yet another name for all of Russia lies somewhat hidden in this passage. There is disagreement over how the Hebrew word rosh should be translated into English in this verse. The King James Version quoted above renders it as the adjective “chief.” But the correct translation renders it not as an adjective, but a proper noun: Rosh.
Properly translated, the verse reads: “the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.”
Rosh was an ancient name for the people who became known as Rus—Russia. So the identity of this “prince” of Russia, Moscow and Tobolsk begins to take clear shape: The list of all three names confirms that this is one individual ruling over all the various peoples across Russia—from west to east.
The mention of Magog shows that this man’s leadership extends beyond the borders of Russia and into China. Ezekiel 38:5-6 mention ancient names for the peoples of such nations as India, Japan and the Koreas, saying these will also lend their military might to this bloc, led by Russia. Russia is already building a powerful alliance with China and laying the groundwork for close relationships with many of these other nations.

When these Bible passages are examined alongside current events in Moscow, the identity of this “prince of Russia” becomes clear. In the September 2014 issue of the Trumpet,Mr. Flurry wrote:
I strongly believe Vladimir Putin is going to lead the 200 million-man army. Just look at the power he already has. Can you think of any other Russian politician who could become so powerful and have the will to lead Russia into the crisis of crises? I see nobody else on the horizon who could do that. … I believe there is not enough time for a competitor to arise and challenge him. Over 80 percent of his people support his leadership.
This much is absolutely certain: The restoring of Russia’s power by Vladimir Putin—the prince of Russia—was prophesied!
Europe’s Response
As Putin begins his fourth term, he does so with astonishing political, economic and military power—and proven determination to use it. Many Europeans—particularly in the eastern part of the Continent—are alarmed by Putin’s increasing aggression.
In 2014, shortly after Russia annexed Crimea, Mr. Flurry explained the significance of this move in terms of Bible prophecy: “We have been prophesying for around 70 years that Eastern Europe would become a vital part of a new European superpower—a resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire. This prophecy is directly related to the Crimean crisis! The fear you see in Europe because of events in Crimea is going to cause 10 leaders in Europe to unite in a sudden and dramatic way—and in precise accordance with the Bible’s description of that European empire! … Europe’s new fear of Russia is going to play a major role in hastening the fulfillment of that prophecy!”
The Europeans have not forgotten what Putin has done to Georgia and Ukraine. They see Russia’s increasingly provocative involvement in the Middle East and its bellicose nuclear threats. Many Europeans are fearful enough to more urgently seek European unification. Within a politically, economically and militarily unified European bloc, the Europeans can better stand up to the rising Russian threat.
A Sign of Great Hope
In his booklet The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia,’ Mr. Flurry thoroughly examines the role that Putin plays in end-time Bible prophecy. He writes that the fact that this “prince of Russia” is on the scene proves that the most hope-filled event in mankind’s history is now near: “Vladimir Putin is a sign, literally a sign,that Jesus Christ is about to return!” he writes. “This is one of the most inspiring messages in the Bible.”
Mr. Flurry continues: “What we are seeing in Russia ultimately leads to the transition from man ruling man to Godruling man! And it is almost here! It is just a few short years away. … Russia’s resurgence—which we see reported in headlines often—shows that end-time Bible prophecies are rapidly being fulfilled!”
In the near term, the fact that Putin has secured six more years at the helm of a resurgent Russia is a harbinger of terrible global tumult. But this development is intimately tied to the best imaginable news: Jesus Christ will return to Earth and usher in an age of peace for the peoples of Russia and all the world!

Vladimir Putin: Friend or Foe? | theTrumpet.com


Set Your Face Against Him

Thousands of years ago, the Prophet Ezekiel forecast the arrival of Vladimir Putin on the world scene. “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him”(Ezekiel 38:1-2). Gog and Magog refer to Russia and China today. Chief princeshould read prince of Rosh, or Russia.This end-time leader rules, among other cities, Meshech (Moscow, the capital) and Tubal (Tobolsk, in eastern Russia). (Request my free booklets Russia and China in Prophecy and The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia’ for extensive proof of this man’s identity.) It is easy to prove who he is.

God tells His end-time messenger to prophesy against the prince of Russia! You’re reading part of that message right now.

Where else is a warning message being proclaimed to the nations of Israel? Do you see any other place where this message is being thundered to America over and over again? My Key of Davidtelevision program is on the air all over America, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. God says that the people in these nations will hear the warning. It’s just a matter of them heeding.

Our people need to find God. As America gets further and further from our Maker, it gets closer and closer to rabid predators like Vladimir Putin. That’s why we must sound the trumpet(Hosea 8:1).

Our people continue to rely on themselves. “For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof” (verse 14). They trust in their own ingenuity for protection. That will only lead them into a devouring fire!

There are real consequences for getting close to a monster like Vladimir Putin.

“They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto me. Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned” (Hosea 7:7-8). Hosea is an end-time book. Ephraim refers to the British peoples and also Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. (Request Herbert W. Armstrong’s free book The United States and Britain in Prophecy to prove the identity of these nations in Bible prophecy.)

God says that Britain today is hot as an oven, or steeped in corruption. They are a cake not turned: They look good on the exterior, but they are burned to the core by sin and ready to collapse! If America doesn’t learn some sobering lessons then it will crumble the same way!

Foreign nations like Russia, China, Iran and Germany are devouring Israel’s strength, but Israel doesn’t realize the severity of its condition! (verse 9). What happens when we get closer and closer to Putin? We get further and further away from God! That’s deadly dangerous!

“And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the Lord their God, nor seek him for all this” (verse 10). God condemns Israel for foolishly seeking alliances with Gentiles instead of with Him. He calls America, Britain and the Jews in the Middle East a silly dove! (verse 11). We have forsaken God. Woe unto us! (verse 13). Only He can save us in these horrifying times.

God will have to teach America a stern lesson through unthinkable trials and tests. “When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard” (verse 12).

When Americans finally wake up to the danger staring them in the face, it will be too late. “They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof” (Ezekiel 7:14). Cyberattacks will cripple our infrastructure, including our military technology, making it impossible to go to war. That is a frightening scenario to think about!

There is good news in the midst of so much gloom. The prophesied prince of Russia and all of these savage Gentile powers are prophesied to lead directly to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ! No longer will these armies terrorize the world!

Facing Manpower Shortage, British Army Reaches Out to LGBTs and Emotional Basket Cases by Trumpet Daily Radio Show

Russian jets continue to buzz Britain’s coasts. Vladimir Putin’s henchmen have proved their ability to carry out chemical attacks on British soil. The island is within range of a potential North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile, yet has no plan to respond to such an attack.

The United Kingdom is about to be alone on Europe’s doorstep—a dangerous position considering World War II history.

Can Britain count on America to fulfill its NATO commitments?

While powers like China and Russia continue to arm, Britain—the nation that once ruled the seas—is facing a defense budget crisis and a politically correct campaign that is showing the world just how soft its armed forces have become.

Would Britain be able to survive another war?

The Bible and the Constiution

The United States Constitution is under attack. Some Americans want to uphold and apply every word, but others want to radically change and eventually abolish this foundational document. Which side is right? Learn what makes the Constitution different from any other document in history—next, on The Key of David, with Gerald Flurry.




To America’s Founding Fathers, character meant everything to the success of the nation and its leadership. Where did they get that idea? What does it mean if we have strayed from that ideal today?
Request our free booklet Character in Crisis to track the sharp moral decline that now threatens to dismantle America. Abraham Lincoln said during the Civil War, “We have forsaken God.” The same is true today. What is happening to the United States of America? Why have divorce, adultery, lying and other appalling sins become a way of life? Is it possible that the American people have gone horribly off track?
Read Character in Crisis for a history lesson about the Founding Fathers’ inspiration: the Holy Bible. These brave men knew the two foundational building blocks of any successful society: religion and morality. They also knew that the people had to be willing to die to defend these biblical principles.
Would the American people shed blood to preserve religion and morality today? Does God even care how we choose to live our lives? Is he pleased with American leadership in the end time? Who is behind the tragic breakdown of family in the U.S.? Read Character in Crisis to learn the cause and the solution to America’s impending collapse.
You will also receive a free copy of Gerald Flurry’s booklet No Freedom Without Law. People everywhere fight and strive for greater freedom. At the same time, they fight against law. That shows a dangerous misunderstanding of the nature of true freedom and the need for righteous law. Without law, there is no real freedom.
America is besieged by a multitude of devastating problems. Alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual perversion, fatherless homes, childish leadership and rebellion against law all result from our freedom to choose. No nation has ever had more freedom. Paradoxically, no nation has ever been so enslaved to sin.
As America continues to reject God and the law of the land, the evils will intensify. Tragically, America will be primary proof for all time that there truly is no freedom without law.

The Battle for Control of Your Mind | The Trumpet Daily

Not even science can explain the true significance of the human mind.

Many people believe that the human mind is nothing more than physical matter, that it is just an arrangement of atoms that evolved from nothingness. So whether a human mind grows up to nurture people or save lives, or whether it abuses people or destroys lives, there is nothing more to it than physical matter.

The human brain is physical matter, but the human mind is the human brain plus something more. It is the human brain plus the human spirit. There is a spirit world, and that spirit world can influence the human spirit for good—or evil. A spiritual war is going on, and the battle is for control of your mind.

What Stephen Hawking Didn’t Know About the Universe by Trumpet Daily Radio Show

The late Stephen Hawking was regarded as one of the most brilliant minds on the planet. But how much did he actually know about the universe? He wasn’t even able to answer some of the most fundamental questions: How did it start? Where did it all come from? Why does it exist? What scientists don’t realize is that when they study the universe, they’re peering into the creative mind of a grand Designer. On today’s program, I discuss what the Bible says about God’s purpose for the universe!
