Allow me to state something at the outset of this: evangelical Christians and biblically literate Jews have been noting and pointing to the ominous four blood moons that are happening during the current twelve-month period we are now in. I myself have written about them (and see here). The phenomena of a tetrad of blood moons occurring simultaneously with the Jewish biblical feasts is rare and each time it has occurred, it has signaled ominous events for Jews. As I pointed out, the first blood moon was accompanied by a massive rocket attack as the terrorist organization running Lebanon began raining rockets onto Israel and Israel was forced to react. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed out that the same United Nations that has passed twenty resolutions condemning Israel for that action have passed only ONE resolution against Syria – even though the 250,000 people murdered so far in that conflict DWARF the ENTIRE NUMBER killed in the entire HISTORY of every war Israel has ever been in combined. All I can say for certain is that they ALL are ominous harbingers for Israel and they ALL happened during this incredibly prophetic blood moon tetrad.
What we are finding now is that there are SO MANY ominous events for Israel going on right now that it may be IMPOSSIBLE to determine precisely WHICH truly fulfills the blood moons Because there are SO MANY things that are truly terrible for Israel all going on at the same time right now. I talk about the Obama Administration as a firehose of pure evil just pouring out wickedness. You literally can’t keep track of it all. So we can look at the first blood moon and wonder if it heralded the massive rocket attack by Hamas or the creation of the caliphate by Islamic State or Obama’s wicked Iran nuclear deal.
In the same way, was this last blood moon that just occurred September 28 a harbinger of the sealing of the wicked Iran nuclear deal or was it the harbinger of the beginning of Russia’s outright projection of military force against the few people friendly to United States’ interests that just began?
Obama has demonized Bush wars so much it is beyond unreal. He has cast himself as the anti-Bush. But Bush fought wars and thousands died. So why is it that if Bush is responsible for people dying by the thousands because of his wars, Obama is NOT responsible for deaths now going by the QUARTERS OF MILLIONS due to Obama refusing to fight evil??? 250,000 have miserably perished just in Syria alone, while tens of thousands more have perished in Iraq, in Egypt, in Libya, etcetera.
It is precisely because Obama stood by and did nothing that Gog of Magog just stormed into Syria.
It is this last that I want to deal with today. I want to talk about Russia directly entering the Middle East as a great and greatly violent power. And I want to talk about how the Bible prophesied this last days event 2,600 years ago. Pick up a Bible and turn to Ezekiel 38:
And the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. “I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you. “Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. “After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them. — Ezekiel 38:1-8
I know that there isn’t a Democrat on planet earth who takes the Holy Bible, the Word of God, seriously. Which is why you can worship homosexual sodomy in violation of Romans chapter one on an altar of sixty million murdered babies in violation of Psalm 139 when the Bible declares you are in fact as wicked and depraved as any NAZI. But here’s the thing: the fact that you refuse to honor God or believe His Word doesn’t change the fundamental FACT that God’s Word is TRUE and WILL come to pass.
And so here we are: just as the Bible taught, in the very last days that the Bible was speaking about, Russia – or shall we call them Gog of the land of Magog given the fact that Russia (formerly Scythia) was identified as Gog dating back to Josephus in the first century AD – is in Syria right on the doorstep of Israel. You can mock us dispensationalist premillennial Christians all you want, but we were RIGHT about boldly stating that the Bible taught Israel would be resurrected from the dead as a nation in fulfillment of Ezekiel 37 – when there were ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNS IN THIS WORLD that Israel would be so resurrected from the dead – and we were also right in boldly stating going back to John Nelson Darby and CI Scofield that Russia would one day become a great and mighty world power in order to fulfill its role in biblical prophecy.
When Darby – who was merely faithful to the Word of God just as faithful Jews had been every year when they hopefully said, “Next year in Jerusalem!” – stated that the Bible clearly teaches a rebirth of the state of Israel, the nation of Israel was as dead as the dirt of the land it had been on. When Darby was writing, Mark Twain was also writing. This is what Mark Twain said about the land that had been “Israel” at the time that Darby was boldly claiming that Israel would be resurrected and regathered as a nation in fulfillment of passages like Ezekiel 37:
Stirring scenes … occur in the valley [Jezreel] no more. There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent-not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.
God and those who believed His Word were right; and everyone else on earth was utterly wrong.
In the same way, Russia did in fact become a great world power when it had basically been a large mostly empty wasteland just as boldly predicted. Just as Darby and Scofield, based on their wisdom in properly handling the Word of God – said would happen.
In the very same vein, we can look to what has not yet happened but has been just as boldly predicted by prophetic writers like Joel Rosenberg, to see that one day, Russia, in league with Iran and a host of nations that today are ALL Muslim, will invade/attack Israel in the last days.
Name the writers or thinkers that predicted an airplane would fly kamikaze-style into the World Trade Center and start a great war in the Middle East. I can: Joel C. Rosenberg in his book, “The Last Jihad.” He was called the “modern-day Nostradamus” for reading the Bible literally and devising a fictional plot scenario that took what the Bible prophetically taught into account.
So you can mock us all you want, liberal, for fearing and honoring the Word of the Living God. But here we are, with a country that we predicted would be a great empire on the doorstep of a nation that we said would exist when there were nothing but a few Bedouins and camels there.
The last-days war of Gog-Magog WILL happen. At this point in history – recognizing that fools abound – only a FOOL would argue that it will not.
Too bad there are so many damn fools. Which is why we ended up with Obama. And which is why all the prophecies about the soon-coming Antichrist, a.k.a. the beast, will soon come to pass as people literally worship this world tyrant and take his mark on their right hands or on their foreheads.
I want you to consider Russia’s violent entry into the Middle East.
I want you to realize that every single president since Israel became a nation in 1948 would have gone to WAR with Russia to prevent this day from ever happening.
In 1947, Harry Truman – recognizing the terrifying threat posed by Gog of the land of Magog – issued his Truman Doctrine:
Another of Stalin’s broken promises was to remove troops from Iran after the war. Iran was rich in oil and was an important ally for both the U.S. and the Soviet Union. The Soviets stationed troops in Iran during the war to secure the Middle East and prevent German attacks. At the Tehran Conference in 1943, all of the major Allies agreed to remove troops from Iran. However, the Soviets still had troops stationed there in 1946, a full year after the war. Stalin went so far as to use his military to support and aid a rebellion in Iran in 1946. Truman was furious about Stalin’s betrayal. Americans grew distrustful of the Soviets and began to worry that the USSR intended to spread communism to the Middle East. […]
WWII put the U.S. in a new and unfamiliar role. Having previously chosen to remain relatively isolated, America was now cast as a world leader. American leaders quickly realized that a plan was required to address the Soviet Union. George F. Kennan was a brilliant U.S. diplomat and an expert on the Soviet Union. In 1946, he was stationed in Moscow, and the State Department asked him to clarify recent Soviet conduct. The world had never seen a threat like communism or a nation that behaved as the Soviet Union did, and the West was confused about how to address these issues. Kennan was one of the few western experts on the Soviet Union, and he was essentially tasked with creating a policy that would be used to deal with the Soviet threat.
Kennan drafted his response to the State Department in a telegram in February 1946. His reply was 8,000 words and contained significant coverage of the issue. The length and breadth of his reply earned it the nickname the “Long Telegram.” He painstakingly covered the history of the USSR and how it had shaped current policies. He provided information that helped American leaders gain a greater insight into the background and mentality of Soviets like Stalin. He advised that the USSR was “ruthlessly expansionary” but also cautious. Kennan stated that if left unchecked the Soviets would expand their regime whenever and wherever possible. He also believed that the Soviet Union’s cautious nature allowed the U.S. to avoid actively engaging the Soviets militarily to keep them in check. It was his belief that a policy of “firm and vigilant containment” could control the Soviet threat. Kennan’s telegram helped form the basis of America’s containment policy toward the Soviet Union.
The Truman Doctrine was BORN out of Gog of the land of Magog’s determination to involve itself in the Middle East, a study of history reveals. It was born out of an American determination to prevent Russia from being allowed to involve itself. The idea behind the Truman Doctrine was that the United States would go to any length to fight Gog of the land of Magog’s expansion or projection of influence. Truman also declared, “it must be the policy of the United States to support free people who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.”
In 1973 Russia threatened to directly enter into the Middle East during the Yom Kippur War when things went badly for their side. And the United States of America directly threatened all-out NUCLEAR WAR to tell Gog of the land of Magog that there was NO WAY IN HELL THEY WERE GOING IN THERE.
Russia had allies in the Middle East. But we largely kept them OUT. We did not and never would have allowed them to bring in large numbers of troops who would launch airstrikes and armor and infantry attacks – particularly against OUR ALLIES, as Russia just did:
Colossal Stupidity by the US in Syria as Russia Attacks Our Allies
by S. Noble • September 30, 2015
Russia swears they’re attacking Islamic State positions. But after giving the United States a one-hour window to get out, their aircraft attacked Homs, where the backbone of the anti-Assad rebellion which is allied with the United States, is centered.
Gog of the land of Magog is wiping out the few remaining U.S. allies. And Obama is passively allowing him to do it.
Another headline even makes it MORE “biblical”:
‘Russia kills US-backed Syrian rebels in second day of air strikes as Iran prepares for ground offensive’
Russia and Iran. As In Gog of the land of Magog and Persia. Just as the Word of God declared this alliance would surely happen.
This was UNTHINKABLE ten years ago. No way IN HELL would the United States have EVER allowed Russia and Iran into the Arab Middle East.
But Lucifer’s pawn is our president now. And he is the worst fool the human race has ever seen, supported by the worst fools the human race has ever seen.
Remember Obama mocking Mitt Romney because Romney was wise and Obama is a fool? Obama mocked: “You said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.”
Now (apology in advance here) Obama is Putin’s bitch.
There are two wicked entities right now – neither one being more utterly demonic than the other – that have “fundamentally transformed” America’s foreign policy from preventing Armageddon to guaranteeing that Armageddon WILL happen: and that is Islamic State and Barack Hussein Obama.
Islamic State could never have existed in the first place without Barack Hussein Obama. It barely even existed when Obama arrogantly placed his feet on top of the desk in the Oval Office of the White House. Just as the vicious civil war that has seen a quarter million Syrian civilians murdered would not have consumed so many lives had Obama not backed down from his “red line” warning like the cowardly, pathetic weasel that he truly is. In fact Obama began the process that culminated in the current military conquest by Gog of the land of Magog when he apathetically allowed Vladimir Putin to exploit his key ally Assad’s use of weapons of mass destruction against his own people.
Over a year and a half ago, a New Republic article began, “The Obama administration’s foreign policy toward Syria is looking like an unmitigated disaster.” Millions of refugees fleeing Syria with no place to go later, what in the hell would you call it NOW??? What would you call Obama’s foreign policy now that Russia is the principle power on earth and the weak and irrelevant United States just got ordered to get the hell OUT by Gog of the land of Magog???
It’s not quite enough to point out that ISIS was nothing but a disenfranchised offshoot of the al Qaeda in Iraq THAT WAS DEFEATED BY BUSH:
“By the end of 2008 and in the beginning of 2009, President Bush’s surge strategy, led by General Petraeus and General Odierno, now the Chief of Staff of the Army, defeated the al-Qaeda in Iraq. I saw the transmissions because I was advising Petraeus on the ground in Iraq. They showed me the transmissions from al-Qaeda that they were intercepting. They said: ‘We are defeated, don’t send any more foreign fighters.’ So we knew how to deal with this enemy in that category.” — General Jack Keane, former commander of the 101st Airborne Division, former commander of the XVIII Airborne Corps, i.e. the Rapid Deployment Force, former Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army
It wasn’t just General Keane. Consider what Vice President Joe Biden declared:
“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.”
It wasn’t just General Keane and Joe Biden. Consider what Barack Obama declared:
“Today, I can announce that our review is complete, and that the United States will pursue a new strategy to end the war in Iraq through a transition to full Iraqi responsibility. […]
This strategy is grounded in a clear and achievable goal shared by the Iraqi people and the American people: an Iraq that is sovereign, stable, and self-reliant.
General David Petraeus and all the key generals were shocked and awed by the profound, demon-possessed STUPIDITY of Barack Obama that guaranteed that the Iraq they had fought to hard to win would fall to the very terrorists they had defeated:
US-IRAQ: Generals Seek to Reverse Obama Withdrawal Decision
By Gareth Porter
WASHINGTON, Feb 2 2009 (IPS) – CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence Secretary Robert Gates, tried to convince President Barack Obama that he had to back down from his campaign pledge to withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months at an Oval Office meeting Jan. 21.
But Obama informed Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen that he wasn’t convinced and that he wanted Gates and the military leaders to come back quickly with a detailed 16-month plan, according to two sources who have talked with participants in the meeting.
Obama’s decision to override Petraeus’s recommendation has not ended the conflict between the president and senior military officers over troop withdrawal, however. There are indications that Petraeus and his allies in the military and the Pentagon, including Gen. Ray Odierno, now the top commander in Iraq, have already begun to try to pressure Obama to change his withdrawal policy.
A network of senior military officers is also reported to be preparing to support Petraeus and Odierno by mobilising public opinion against Obama’s decision.
Petraeus was visibly unhappy when he left the Oval Office, according to one of the sources. A White House staffer present at the meeting was quoted by the source as saying, “Petraeus made the mistake of thinking he was still dealing with George Bush instead of with Barack Obama.”
Petraeus, Gates and Odierno had hoped to sell Obama on a plan that they formulated in the final months of the Bush administration that aimed at getting around a key provision of the U.S.-Iraqi withdrawal agreement signed envisioned re-categorising large numbers of combat troops as support troops. That subterfuge was by the United States last November while ostensibly allowing Obama to deliver on his campaign promise. […]
The opening argument by the Petraeus-Odierno faction against Obama’s withdrawal policy was revealed the evening of the Jan. 21 meeting when retired Army Gen. Jack Keane, one of the authors of the Bush troop surge policy and a close political ally and mentor of Gen. Petraeus, appeared on the Lehrer News Hour to comment on Obama’s pledge on Iraq combat troop withdrawal.
Keane, who had certainly been briefed by Petraeus on the outcome of the Oval Office meeting, argued that implementing such a withdrawal of combat troops would “increase the risk rather dramatically over the 16 months”. He asserted that it would jeopardise the “stable political situation in Iraq” and called that risk “not acceptable”.
Anybody who states that Obama had no choice but to leave Iraq is a fool and a liar. Just as Obama himself is a fool and a liar. OBAMA AND OBAMA ALONE decided to cut and run from Iraq AFTER we won the war when there WAS not ONE but SEVERAL ALTERNATIVES to the most literalistic reading of the Status of Forces Agreement that Obama swore tied his hands. The FACT is that the United States had multiple options that anyone but a FOOL would have pursued: but Obama was and IS a fool and Obama wanted out so he could boast about being the president who brought the troops home.
And LOOK what an unending HOLOCAUST we have across the Middle East to show for this petty man’s arrogant childishness.
It’s not enough to point out that the Obama Administration declared the victory that Bush had won in Iraq where Islamic State now reigns because Obama cut and ran just like General Petraeus and pretty much all decent people feared he would do. No, we have to go that one step further and point out that Obama actually let the man who truly formed Islamic State into the monster that it is free six years ago.
This is the same Obama who foolishly declared that Islamic State was “JayVee” even as they were seizing cities in Iraq. And then lied about having done it. Because he’s a lying fool.
Now Obama is absolutely HELPLESS before them and POWERLESS TO STOP THEM and has to plead with his superiors in Russia and Iran to deal with this “JayVee” power.
It might be true that Islamic State is “JayVee,” I suppose, but the United States of America is “PeeWee” under Barack Hussein Obama’s treasonous and cowardly and idiotic and incompetent administration.
All I am saying is that NO TRUE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD EVER HAVE ALLOWED what Obama has treasonously allowed to come to pass by his cowardice and his stupidity and his demonic moral idiocy.
You want to see what Obama has done to “win” the war in Syria? Some headlines:
Column In Syria: $36 million to train 60 opposition fighters?
Doyle McManus•Contact Reporter
July 12, 2015, 5:00 AM
A little more than a year ago, President Obama asked Congress for $500 million to train and equip some 15,000 opposition fighters in Syria, arguing that the best way to defeat Islamic State terrorists was to arm local forces.
The war against Islamic State “will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil,” Obama promised. “Instead, we must strengthen the opposition as the best counterweight to extremists.”
Last week, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter gave Congress a progress report. The training program is up and running, he said, and almost 7,000 Syrians have applied to join — but the total number of fighters trained comes to exactly 60.
Sixty? UCLA has more men on its football roster. That’s “not an impressive number,” Carter acknowledged.
Skeptics instantly did the arithmetic: If that’s all we get for $500 million, it comes to almost $9 million per fighter — and the trainees haven’t even made it onto the battlefield yet.
But if you think THAT’S pathetic, it actually was even WORSE. ‘Cause, I mean, don’t knock sixty fighters. Sixty actual fighters would be an impressive achievement for an idiotic, disgraceful pile of human waste like Barack Hussein Obama. So when the actual facts came out…
Only handful of U.S.-trained Syrian rebels still fighting: general
WASHINGTON | By Phil Stewart
Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:48pm EDT
Only four or five U.S.-trained Syrian rebels are still fighting in Syria, a top U.S. general told Congress on Wednesday, a stark admission of setbacks to a fledgling military program that critics have already pronounced a failure.
The U.S. military began training in May for up to 5,400 fighters a year, in what was seen as a test of President Barack Obama’s strategy of having local partners combat Islamic State militants and keep U.S. troops off the front lines.
But the program was troubled from the start, with some of the first class of less than 60 fighters coming under attack from al Qaeda’s Syria wing, Nusra Front, in their battlefield debut. Some were captured and killed while others scattered.
This is kind of like Obama’s inane oft-repeated boast that he has a coalition of sixty nations. Because he has a coalition of sixty nations the way he had 15,000 opposition fighters. Or even SIXTY fighters, for that matter. Obama’s “coalition” is as much of a sick joke as his shambles of a foreign policy is.
Obama boasts that his “coalition” has flown nearly 7,000 sorties since the start of Obama’s red line warning fiasco three years ago. Do you know what a joke that is??? Let me put it into perspective: we flew more than 8,000 sorties IN THE FIRST FIVE DAYS of Operation Desert Storm.
When you compare Obama’s war with actual wars that our leaders wanted to truly make any real difference in, Obama becomes a joke. We averaged 1,100 sorties a day against Iraq in 1991; under Obama it’s a laughable SEVEN sorties a day.
Then factor in that 75% of Obama’s sorties return with all of their weapons, having dropped no bombs and not having fired a damn SHOT.
Which puts Obama’s airstrikes into the laugh-riot of his 4 or 5 fighters. Who are undoubtedly dead now that Putin is bombing them.
Obama’s mission against Islamic State is designed to FAIL. It is designed to appear like he’s doing something when he really is doing NOTHING.
If Barack Obama is your ally, YOU ARE A TRUE FOOL. Anyone, EVERYONE who trusts in Obama deserves to perish miserably.
Obama has been cooking his own intelligence. All along, this fool – the same fool who ridiculed Islamic State as “JayVee” – has been intentionally minimizing the threat against America, against Israel, against the world. Now fifty intelligence experts are coming right out and DECLARING it.
Now, anybody who is fool enough or stupid enough or just insane enough to believe that Obama is a man who wants the truth but is being deceived by those under him, I simply point out this: Major Nidal Hasan, the Allahu Akbar-screaming, card-carrying “Soldier of Allah” TERRORIST who murdered American soldiers but was amazingly declared an example of “workplace violence” by a president who is and has always BEEN pathologically dishonest about being honest about terrorists and terrorism. We have now seen DOZENS of examples of OBVIOUS terrorism being declared anything but by this lying fool president. There is no question that his top brass was ordered to produce the “proof” that Obama wanted – and the fact that Obama’s “proof” is a mountain of lies is irrelevant to anyone but the few who still care about “truth” in this postmodern and post-Christian planet.
The Obama presidency is an eight-year experiment in treason against the United States of America as the basis of a foreign policy.
But 2,600 years ago, God foreknew that there would be an utterly useless turd in the White House, and that this useless turd would allow a terrorist army to rise into the status of creating the very first terrorist caliphate in history. And that Russia would see the opening and come in much the way a fish sees the bait on a line and swoops in.
Anyone who isn’t a fool can see Vladimir Putin’s end game: he is in Syria right now destroying all of the U.S.-backed rebels who were a threat to the regime of Putin’s Syrian ally Assad. And after Putin has wiped out the resistance, there will be only Assad and Islamic State left, and Putin will argue that we must support his ally Assad. That’s what brought Putin into Syria, THAT was the hook God put in Russia’s jaw: the opportunity to essentially take over the influence in the Middle East that the United States had and abandoned and that Russia wanted but had always been shut-out by a too-powerful United States. At least until Obama the fool came along to create a giant vacuum of leadership and invite in what all previous presidents would have gone to war to keep out.
Armageddon IS going to happen now. Democrats voted for it, just as much as they will surely one day soon vote to take the Antichrist’s mark on their right hands or on their foreheads.
You go ahead and mock me, but one day you’ll be taking that mark on your OWN right hand or forehead as you worship the beast that is the face of human Government in defiance of the One True God.
