Reports that Putin will sideline the Syrian President

Putins intentions are becoming clearer.

First he offers to secure Israel gas & oil assets, now he is more concerned for the Syrian people than he is the Syrian President.

Bloomberg reports that Putin working with power brokers (US & Saudis) to explore the option of sidelining the Syrian President.

If the report is true is this going to be a case of invasion via diplomacy?

Note in the article a killer phrase; “Putins WHIRLWIND diplomacy”.

Reminds me of Daniel 11: “and the king of the North shall come against him like a WHIRLWIND”.

Well this isn’t exactly an invasion but the infrastructure is being built in Syria for a rapid deployment if Putin needs it as reports have shown.

Putin offers to guard Israel’s Oil & Gas Assets

Speaking of Russia in the latter day, Ezekiel 38:8 says;

After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

~ Ezekiel 38

Ezekiel prophecies that at the same time that Russia comes down like a storm and invades the land, an evil thought will enter Russia’s mind and they will want to take a spoil from the land of Israel, and Egypt (Daniel 11:42)

The news today show that the seeds are being sown.

DebkaFile Reports:

More than a fortnight ago, Russian President Vladimir put a proposition to Israel for Moscow to undertake responsibility for guarding Israel’s Mediterranean gas fields, along with the offer of a Russian investment of $7-10 billion for developing Leviathan, the largest well, and building a pipeline to Turkey for exporting the gas to Europe, DEBKAfile reports.

A multibillion Russian investment in the field would make it a Russian project which neither Syria nor Hizballah would dare attack, even though it belongs to Israel.

But now the situation has assumed a different face. Russian forces are streaming to Latakia, and Moscow has declared the area from Tartous, Syria up to Cyprus closed to shipping and air traffic from Sept. 15 to Oct. 7 in view of a “military exercise including test firings of guided missiles” from Russian warships.

When he offered a shield for Israeli gas fields in late August, The Russian ruler knew that implementation would rest with Russian military forces on the spot, rather than Iranian and Syrian reluctance to harm Russian interests

World Bank Warns that the Fed is about to cause “Panic and Turmoil”

The US Federal Reserve is likely to lift interest rates for the first time next week in almost 10 years.

However, both the IMF and the World Bank have been consistently warning the US Federal reserve against such a decision.

“the World Bank and IMF are urging the Fed not to raise rates until 2016 because the U.S. economy isn’t strong enough yet”

CNN money

Today, the World Bank stepped up its rhetoric:

The Federal Reserve will cause “panic and turmoil” if it raises interest rates in the next few weeks, the World Bank’s chief economist has warned.

~ The Telegraph

It was during this time that the Central Bank of Central Banks (The BIS) had also warned that the world is defenseless against the next Financial Crisis:

Further to this, the leading financial markets news site in the US (Wall Street Journal) reported the following as the Greece crisis began to unfold a few months back:

“Talk to almost any banker, investor or hedge-fund manager today and one topic is likely to dominate the conversation: It isn’t Greece.

The fear is that a Fed rate increase could unleash such disruptions on a grand scale.”

~ Wall Street Journal

The picture couldn’t be clearer; this is an event that has had many people worried for many months.

Will there be turmoil and panic next week? We dont know.

Many US evangelical pastors have been warning of a Shemitah collapse. Whether a financial crisis does or doesn’t happen, we have little reason to believe that there is any scriptural precedent for applying the Shemitah cycle to the US instead of Israel as it was originally intended.

One thing is for sure, this month wont be lacking in financial crisis flash points. Here are at least two coming up in the next few weeks:

  • The Greek Prime Minister is up for re-election on the 20th of September. Polls suggest that he wont be voted in as originally expected which will put the latest round of bailouts under significant risk. This could also be a flash-point for significant change in the geopolitics of the Eurozone.
  • Remember the Government Shutdown of 2013? Well the US House of Representatives passed a bill a few years back to end the crisis temporarily until the 30th of September 2015. Once again, republicans are gearing up to see if they use a shutdown as political blackmail.

NATO looks to leave Afghanistan & The King of the North plans to fill the void

Only last week we heard that Russia was increasing its military presence in Syria.

Now we hear that Russia is planning to support Afghanistan’s military when NATO pulls out.

When we revisit the map of the ancient Seleucid empire we find that Afghanistan is included within the ancient boundary which formed the empire of the King of the North.

Here is a list of very recent news related to Daniel 11:

  1. Egypt discovers what is likely to be the biggest gas field in the world. 
  2. Putin confirms Russian military increase in Syria

Even So, Come Lord Jesus.

This week – Putin, Syria, Europe & the Pope

Putin officially confirms that he has forces in Syria.

Another milestone in current events – Putin himself has officially confirmed reports that he has boots on the ground in Syria.

Russia has sent the biggest nuclear submarine in the world down to Syria

The world’s largest submarine, the Dmitri Donskoy (TK-208), Nato-coded Typhoon, has set sail for the Mediterranean and is destined for the Syrian coast, DEBKAfile reports exclusively from its military and intelligence sources. Aboard the sub are 20 Bulava (NATO-code SS-N-30) intercontinental ballistic missiles with an estimated up to 200 nuclear warheads. Each missile, with a reported range of 10,000km, carries 6-10 MIRV nuclear warheads.

The Russian sub set sail from its North Sea base on Sept. 4, escorted by two anti-sub warfare ships. Their arrival at destination in 10 days time will top up the new Russian military deployment in Syria.

Europe is experiencing more instability with a migrant & a farmers crisis

Thousands of migrants have crossed into Austria and Germany, following a long journey that has brought many from conflict zones like Syria into the heart of Europe.

Police have used water cannon during a farmers’ protest in Brussels. Hundreds of protesters were throwing stones, eggs and firecrackers at officers and used two tractors to try and break through a cordon.

Not what you expect to to see in Brussels which is the de facto capital of the European Union (EU) and headquarters for NATO.

Russia had a hand in this when it decided to cut off agricultural imports from Europe.

The EU can only suffer from so much instability. Greece is dragging them down. What will Russia do next?

The False Prophet speaks again

Pope Francis has called on every European parish to host one refugee family each in a goodwill gesture that will begin in the Vatican state. It comes as Europe faces the worst refugee crisis since World War II.
