Russian miltary base attacked by ISIS

STRATFOR – a private global intelligence firm has published an article showing that a Russian base has been attacked by ISIS in Syria.

In Ezekiel 38, God says to Gog (latter day Russia):

I will put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet.

Hooks in Jaws: why did God choose to use a violent analogy?

The placing of ‘hooks in jaws’ was a brutal tradition conceived by the ancient neo-Assyrian’s.

The Assyrian’s typically put hooks in the jaws of defeated enemies, either for the purposes of humiliation or to deport them to other lands. This practices is often described in their annuls, and graphically depicted in their wall relief’s.

~ The IVP Bible Background Commentary

Why does God choose to use an ancient Assyrian practice to explain how he will drag Russia south to build a confederacy?

Perhaps because it would be an Assyrian like power – ISIS – that would provoke Russia to move South, and establish and guard a confederacy of nations.

Here is an article that deals briefly with some of the similarities between the Assyrian’s and ISIS:

Some similarities are listed here:

  • Both powers are known for executing absolute and excessive barbarity, and subsequently advertising it to their enemies. For example, enemies of the ancient Assyrian regime were beheaded in public, and the walls of their cities were lined with impaled men, women and children in order to send a message to their enemies. In the 21st century, ISIS use social media and other technologies to project their gruesome decapitations to the world.
  • The capital of the ancient Assyrian empire was located in Nineveh. Today, The Islamic States biggest city – Mosul – surrounds the ruins of Nineveh, and is the hometown of ISIS.
  • The Assyrian’s wiped out virtual all culture prior to them as do ISIS today.
  • Women were forced into slavery by the ancient Assyrian’s as they are today, under ISIS

So there are many indicators which show that ISIS bears many of the hallmarks of the ancient neo-Assyrian empire.

Is ISIS the Hooks in the Jaws that we are witnessing today?

A Historic Vote which could result in Ten Toes of Daniels Image

For those who visit our website, you will have noticed that for a couple of months we have had a countdown timer running for the UK vote on EU membership.

Today, that count sits at 32 days to a historic vote which could bring us a step closer to the alliance of the latter days.

But in the mean time get up to scratch by watching a movie created by the BREXIT campaign. This highly recommended watch provides some amazing insight into why there is massive political, economic and social impetus for Britain to leave the EU.

Impetus to leave is strong. Watch this heated debate on this issue in the UK:

Why will Britain eventually be separate from the European Union?

  • Ten Toes (Daniel 2) or Horns (Revelation 17) manifesting as ten nations will emerge in Europe who give their power to the Papacy and become aligned with Russia. Britain is not one of these kingdoms.
  • The Tarshish (Britain) of Ezekiel 38 is opposed to Russia in the latter days when the invasion of Israel occurs.

Perhaps the bigger issue at hand is that many analysts are saying if the UK leaves the EU, the EU project is likely to collapse with debt ridden nations like Greece also wanting to leave.

A collapse of the European Union would give rise to another confederacy of European Nations – is this the year that we will see ten Kingdoms emerge in Europe under the leadership of the Papacy?

Don’t forget, the UK is a protestant influence (anti-catholic). If the protestant influence leaves, than the Pope will suddenly have far more influence in Europe.

Furthermore when this happens the unity between Russia and Europe will only grow as many in Europe have sought to have stronger relations with Russia were it nor for pressure from the US to sanction Russia.

In short, the vote to leave the European Union is about something far bigger than a UK vote on democracy: It is an event which could initiate some far bigger changes across the world that lead to the ten toes of Daniels image, and eventually the return of Christ.

Even so, Come Lord Jesus.

Pope Francis receives the Charlemagne prize, and speaks of his dream for Europe.

This headline is personally one of the most faith affirming headlines I have read this year.

While so much prophetic progress is taking place in Russia – which due to the birth of a new child I have not had the time to write about – the Papacy on the other hand is outworking exactly what Christ said it would be, those few moments before his own return.

What exactly is this apostate system up to now? Well lets cover some context briefly.

Yesterday, Pope Francis was awarded by – none other than Europe itself – the ‘prestigious Charlemagne award’. Charlemagne was the first Emperor of Holy Roman Empire, a Catholic, who united several nations together to form a religious empire.

Just like Charlemagne, Pope Francis is now playing a key role in European unification. While calling himself ‘a political animal’, the Pope is dutifully acting out the part of the prostitute riding the beast as described by Christ in Revelation 17.

But that is just the beginning: During his award speech to the European Parliament, Pope Francis spoke wistfully about his dream for a ‘new Europe’ which brings us back to chapter Daniel 2.

Remember Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Daniel 2? The feet were made of iron and clay, but it was the iron (the Roman Catholic influence) that kept the clay together. This was together manifested in ten toes – the ten European nations – whose only reason for unification, was Roman Catholicism, just like the state of affairs brought about by Charlemagne himself.

Infact, speaking of the kingdoms under Charlemagne, Bro. Thomas says;

At this crisis of affairs, there existed … the Ten Toe Kingdoms. I would remark here in passing that it has hitherto been found impossible to define these kingdoms according to the number given. Several tens have been guessed at, but the lists bear inaccuracy on the face of  them. The kingdoms are represented by ten horns, and ten toes, because there would be that number appearing on the territory of the Roman Beast between A.D. 476 and A.D. 799, the interval between the fall and restoration of the Western Roman Empire…

At the time of the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Saints, there will also be ten kingdoms whose territories will embrace those of the original Gothic Ten.

Exposition of Daniel Pg 75

So while the Pope is fulfilling Revelation 17 by committing fornication with the “kings of Europe”, he is also on the cusp of fulfilling the unification of 10 nations as described by the ten toes in Daniel chapter 2 & the ten horns in Rev 17:

“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.

Revelation 17

However this prophecy could well be fulfilled AFTER the return of Christ.
While we are witnessing these amazing prophecies come into fulfilment before our eyes, neither of those prophecies mentioned in Rev 17 or Daniel 2 directly portend the return of Christ.

But there is one prophecy which does portend the return of Christ:

The very last sign to occur before His return is the “Unclean Spirits like Frogs” which are explained here in more detail, but in short, represent unclean teachings being spoken from the mouth of the false prophet (the papacy), the beast (Europe), and the dragon (Russia).

One such unclean teaching, is the doctrine of humanism.

In his Charlemagne speech, (full script here FYI) the Pope talks extensively about his dream for “a new European humanism”:

“Europe is weary, aging, no longer fertile…

With mind and heart, with hope and without vain nostalgia, like a son who rediscovers in Mother Europe his roots of life and faith, I dream of a new European humanism, one that involves “a constant work of humanization” and calls for “memory, courage, [and] a sound and humane utopian vision”.

I dream of a Europe that is young, still capable of being a mother: a mother who has life because she respects life and offers hope for life.

Pope Francis

What you just read is a perfect example of the “Unclean Spirits like Frogs” being uttered by the Papacy; the last sign, before the return of Christ.

Even so, Come, King Jesus.

The Kingdom of God – Part 2

Continued from Part 1: Brother Roberts vision of the Kingdom:

This is only the profane portion of the land – a scene of peace and righteousness and plenty, truly, but not comparable to “the holy portion of the land.” Come to the holy portion of the land – the land given as an oblation to the Lord.

We approach Jerusalem, or rather Yah Shammah (the new name of the new city) from the south.

It stands in the southernmost section of the holy portion.

It is an immense city, built upon a plan of perfect symmetry and proportion.

It is very unlike the huddled clusters of human dwellings called towns with which we have been familiar.

The general plan is an exact square, marked by an outer wall.

The square is of enormous extent, measuring nine miles through at any point.

The wall is of bright stone, and adorned with towers at regular distances.

We only see the south wall.

It stretches away right and left further than the eye can follow.

It is over nine miles long on the south side, and on all the other sides the same.

There are lofty ornamental gates at regular distances.

We descend from the overlooking hill and enter by one of these gates.

It would be pleasant to stay and inspect the city; but we want to hurry on to the temple, and, therefore we must be content with a rapid passage through the central thoroughfare, which we have chosen, to the northern exit by one of the gates in the north wall.

Just before passing on, we notice at a glance the stately character of the city.

The streets are straight and wide, and shaded with trees, and, at regular distances, open out into squares and crescents.

The houses are not high, and stand apart in gardens except where here and there palatial blocks of buildings spring from the midst of the squares.

We ask what these are and are informed that they are reception-houses, for the accommodation of the visitors who daily come from all parts.

There is an immense number of the people in the city, but the city is so vast that they do not appear numerous, except at certain points, as we pass along.

Their aspect is such as never saw in any city crowd before – so quiet, yet so cheerful; so brightly interested in everything, yet so orderly and respectful; so apparently cultured and well-to-do, yet having none of the fussiness and arrogance usually associated with prosperity.

All are well-clad, clean, intelligent, good, righteous, and happy,- no boisterous merrymaking- no foolish banter – no unsuitable speaking.

They are a few of the happy subjects of the kingdom of God.

They have come from all parts of the earth to do homage to the king – wives and families with them, leaving behind them prosperous homesteads and occupations, to which they will return in a little season.

We hasten in a straight line along our nine-mile avenue of picturesque and happy human habitation – (we could take the help of an electric car, if we liked; for such has been provided in all the thoroughfares, for the use of the people; but, in our new state, we prefer to walk); we can quicken our pace, when we want to do so, as we dreamt of in our mortal days.

We get out at the gate of Judah; opposite which, after crossing an ornamental common of about half a mile in breadth that runs round the entire city, there opens a magnificent highway running in a straight line in a northern direction towards the temple which is distant about thirty miles.

Along this highway we proceed.

It is very broad, and of noble aspect.

A line of tall trees in a broad band of turf divides it in the center, and again in the middle of each side, giving four spacious roadways running side by side, lined with trees and bordered with turf and flowers.

The country on each side is laid out in field and estates, which are in the occupation of the Levites and of second order who serve the temple, whose lands, however, are accessible to visitors at all times.

The country becomes more magnificent at every step.

At certain points, side roads strike off and return in many turnings and windings to the main road again.

These side roads lead through woodsy solitudes of paradisaic beauty.

Let us go down one of these roads and behold the fulfillment of the promise that the Lord would make the place of his feet glorious.

All is quiet, comforting, and beautiful.

There is no dankness, but only a sense of bracing relief in the shade they give: no wetness on the ground, but only a pleasant soft hardness.

There are no walls or fences at the side of the road.

You may walk straight off the road on to velvet turf under the trees and among the shrubs.

Here you find all kinds of fruit growing – all kinds of flowers in bloom.

You are at liberty to put forth your hand and do as you will.

How delicious the odor everywhere! We stroll and stroll.

Bro. Robert Roberts describes his vision of the Kingdom in ‘The Final Consolation’.

Russian forces fire at Israeli Aircraft

Reuters Reports:

Russian forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft, prompting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek improved operational coordination with Moscow, Israel’s top-selling newspaper said on Friday.

The unsourced report in Yedioth Ahronoth gave no dates or locations for the incidents nor any indication Israeli planes were hit. Russia mounted its military intervention in Syria in September to shore Damascus up amid a now 5-year-old rebellion.

Separately, Israel’s Channel 10 TV said a Russian warplane approached an Israeli warplane off the Mediterranean coast of Syria last week but that there was no contact between them.

An Israeli military spokesman declined comment. Netanyahu’s office and the Russian embassy in Israel did not immediately respond.

srael, which has repeatedly bombed Syria to foil suspected arms handovers to Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas, was quick to set up an operational hotline with Moscow designed to avoid accidentally trading fire with Russian interventionary forces.

Visiting Moscow on Thursday, Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin in televised remarks: “I came here with one main goal – to strengthen the security coordination between us so as to avoid mishaps, misunderstandings and unnecessary confrontations.”

In an apparent allusion to Syria, Putin said: “I think there are understandable reasons for these intensive contacts (with Israel), given the complicated situation in the region.”

According to Yedioth, the reported Russian fire on Israeli planes was first raised with Putin by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, who visited Moscow on March 15. At the time, Putin responded that he was unaware of the incidents, Yedioth said.

“Be ready and keep ready, you and all your hosts that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them.

After many days you will be mustered. In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and now dwell securely, all of them.

You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you.”

Ezekiel 38
