Ezekiel 38:3-6 – “I will bring Rosh, Meshech and Tubal along with Persia, Ethiopia and Put, as well as Gomer and Beth-Togarmah against Israel”
Russia and the Ukraine have had a tumultuous relationship for many years, with Ukraine gaining lands from Russia and Poland, and then Russia taking them back, only to be taken away again. But the recent gathering of Russian troops in Crimea has little to do with these ongoing conflicts.
Russia (Rosh) and Turkey (Meshech and Tubal) with a coalition of other countries is prophesied to invade Israel in what is commonly called the Gog-Magog war. Joining them will be Iran (Persia), Ethiopia (Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan), Put (Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia), Gomer (Germany), and Beth-Togarmah (Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia).
Setting the Stage
The stage is being set for the easy movement of troops from these nations into Israel. In 2005 Russia invaded Georgia. Russia has already made an alliance with Syria. Today, Russia is invading the Ukraine. For many centuries, Russia controlled Poland, and we may see in the near future another invasion of that country. Russia was in cahoots with Iraq during Saddam Hussein’s reign, and we may well see a revival of that alliance in the near future.
Once all of these nations have come under the Russian umbrella, it will be easy for the combined troops of the nations above to move those troops across the land bridges that lead to Israel. The bridge from Germany leads directly through Poland and the Ukraine. From there, it turns south directly through Georgia, and Azerbaijan!
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. History is moving extremely quickly towards the prophesied one world government, the one world financial system, and the rise of both the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The birth pangs are just over the horizon. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
