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 prince should 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 David television 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!
