GOD SAYS IN EZEKIEL 38 TO PROPHESY AGAINST HIM IN THE LATTER DAYS BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE CATACLYSMIC! THE ASIAN POWER THAT IS ALREADY RAPIDLY SOLIDIFYING WILL BE LIKE NOTHING THIS EARTH HAS EVER EXPERIENCED.
We need to watch Vladimir Putin closely. He is the “prince of Rosh” that God inspired Ezekiel to write about 2,500 years ago! We need to watch what is happening in Russia and how Europe responds to it. Daniel 11:44 talks about “tidings out of the east” troubling Europe. Mr. Putin’s tactics in Ukraine, Georgia, the Middle East and elsewhere are already deeply troubling to Europe. If you study Moscow’s foreign policy under Putin’s leadership, it is plain that the ultimate goal is to eventually conquer the whole world. Europe is certainly aware of this goal and is closely watching its neighbor to the east. Russia’s resurgence—which we see happening in headlines every day—shows that end-time Bible prophecies are rapidly being fulfilled!
Joel 2:12 explains what all of this is about: “Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning.” That’s God’s message to the people of the world. He wants us to turn to Him. All of this is about getting the men and women of the Earth to turn to God. God is a God of love.
“[H]e is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil” (verse 13). This merciful, kind, gracious God wants us to turn to Him because of all the emptiness and suffering we are bringing on ourselves! Right now, He lets us go our own way because that’s what we chose. All right, God says, You go ahead, and I’ll let you see that you cannot rule yourself.
”Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?” (verse 14). How do you know what God will do for you? If you turn to Him, He will pour out all kinds of blessings on you! That’s what He says.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly” (verse 15). This verse commands the very elect to make some noise and tell the people what God prophesies to us! How often do you hear a Bible-based message such as this from any religious body of this world? Never.
