Last week HNewsWire explored the Old Testament prophecy in Ezekiel 38:18-23, which suggests that Russia will attack Israel on some future date. You can find part 1 of this series by clicking here: https://hnewswire.com/will-putin-fulfill-biblical-prophecy-and-attack-israel/
While no one can be 100% certain that Ezekiel’s prophecy is unfolding before our very eyes, the stage has already been set for this to happen exactly as predicted… and it may be sooner than you think. Consider the main points of what we covered in part 1 of this series:
- Vladimir Putin is a soulless demoniac, hell-bent on murdering hundreds of thousands of people regardless of the suffering inflicted around the world.
- He believes that NATO is an existential threat to Russia and has already established two military bases in Syria… a little-known fact. Yes, this gives him access to the Mediterranean Sea, all of NATO controlled Europe, and the northern border of Israel.
- The Dangerous Love Triangle: Syria, Israel’s mortal enemy, has joined forces with Russia to destroy Ukraine, while Israel remains “unconditional allies” with Russia. There is reason to believe that Putin offered something in return for the Syrians to join the war against Ukraine. The only thing the Syrians would want is for Russia to force Israel out of the Golan Heights, which technically belonged to Syria until President Trump formally recognized Israeli sovereignty over the region.
- Israel does not belong to NATO and would be left to defend herself from a Russian or Russo-proxy invasion.
If the whole earth were a powder keg ready to explode, the fuse would be set in Jerusalem. Bitter tensions between the Jews and the Arab nations have been raging for centuries. Jerusalem, the ancient city founded by King David over 3,000 years ago, has been the epicenter of invasions, wars, occupations, and crusades. Without a doubt, these events have shaped the course of human civilization for several millennia. Even today, there is no “real peace” in the Middle East. The difference between War and Peace always exists on the thin margin of a razor's edge.
And just how bad are these hostilities today? Not so great! Consider the list of the nations who are sworn enemies of Israel:
- Saudi Arabia
Let’s just summarize this section by saying, “The emotions and hostilities run deeper than the Mariana Trench at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
The most complicated part of this picture is the relationship that America has maintained with Israel for nearly 75 years. Most conservative American Christians believe that God has commanded all Believers to support Israel. To illustrate, God spoke these words to Abraham:
I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and all the families of the earth will be blessed through you. Genesis 12:2-3
Most Christians know that Jesus Christ was a Jew, born in Bethlehem—also the birthplace of his ancestor, the great King David. Furthermore, many Christians believe that Israel is the only nation created by a sovereign act of God Almighty, and that He often referred to the Jews as “My people.” Many Believers feel a spiritual kinship with the nation that gave rise to their Savior and their Christian faith. No doubt, American pilgrimages to the Holy Land have equaled “big business” for the Israeli economy.
Consider these statistics from the Pew Research Center:
- Among white evangelical Protestants, 46% say that the U.S. is not providing enough support for Israel.
- When asked whether God gave Israel to the Jewish people, more Christians (55%) than Jews (40%) say yes.
- When it comes to the long-standing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, asked whether they sympathize with either side, 72% of white evangelicals sided with Israel in the dispute while 4% picked the Palestinians.
Megachurch Pastor, John Hage, boasts of having sent over $100 million in support to Jewish causes. And that’s just one ministry! No one really knows the total amount of support that evangelical Christians have sent to Israel.
Regardless of where one stands on this issue, it’s a fact that U.S. support for Israel has had far reaching consequences. For instance, one of the primary reasons that Osama bin Laden attacked the U.S. on 9/11 was America’s support of Israel (Source: Wikipedia). As a result, America waged over two decades of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and spent trillions of dollars to protect America from the people who hate her… mostly on account of the ongoing support of Israel.
Putin hates America too, but for different reasons. In his twisted perspective, the U.S. is the dominant leader of NATO, which he considers the “existential threat” to Russia… Chicken Little be damned. America is like the Rocky Balboa to his Ivan Vasilyevich Drago. O.K. That reference was so 1980’s Cold War.
On a more serious note, the U.S. has demonstrated its ability to impose crippling sanctions against Russia, butt-kick (yeehaw) them out of the world banking system, freeze billions of dollars in assets, take away their toys, yachts, Big Macs… and the list goes on.
So, each time the five-foot-three-inch Russian president is humiliated (5’7” in high heels), the more his Napoleonic Syndrome flares. Don’t let anybody tell you that’s not a real thing. Let’s face it, Putin is being shamed by the Ukrainian army. His quick takeover plan was an epic failure. He must be so butt-sore by now. Russia doesn’t have the resources for their marshmallow military to occupy Ukraine forever.
Putin’s Achilles Heel was to underestimate that a comedian/actor who played the role of a Ukrainian President on a popular sitcom would become the real President and an international hero. Volodymyr Zelensky has captured the world’s stage. Not only that, but he’s also inspired world-wide support for the survival of Ukraine. “Glory to Ukraine,” and “Support Ukraine” are common refrains heard in the news and around the world.
This whole news cycle is strangely similar to the plot of the epic Star Wars fantasy series! In a galaxy far away, the rebels have united. Their mission is to thwart the autocratic ambitions of the evil emperor. Gasp and grimace… and the memes keep coming.
Let’s shift gears to a more sobering reality. Crawl into the twisted mind of Putin for a minute, if you dare. Yes, it’s a very dark journey into the realm of the belly of hell itself—an infested, demon-polluted psyche of epic proportions. He fears for his life. Yes, he knows that he can’t lose this war and escape the same fate of many Russian leaders who preceded him. The list of assassinations is long, (source: Wikipedia). He’s a small desperate man, threatening the world with nuclear war, firing upon nuclear power plants… and purportedly, ready to use chemical and biological weapons. Curiously, he’s convinced the Syrian and Belarusian soldiers to join the campaign and rescue his marshmallow military.
Don’t you know that every brain cell in Putin’s mind is firing off signals in a mad neurotic rampage? Our official and professional diagnosis of Vladimir Putin’s brain is this: it’s a hot mess, surrounded hatred, wrapped inside a dysfunctional childhood. Seriously, his formative years were messed up. Read more here.
To Putin’s dismay, the Ukrainian army/militia is blowing up Russian tanks, sinking war ships, commandeering equipment that the twenty-something Russkies abandon after soiling their pants. Putin’s head must be ready to explode. America keeps supplying the resistance: Over 7,000 anti-tank Javelin systems, 1,400 Stinger anti-aircraft systems, 100 tactical kamikaze drones, grenade launchers, body armor, 400 shotguns, pistols, rifles… and more arrives each day, (source). Oh, how he must hate America and Americans to the bottom of his wretched soul. Falsely accusing and imprisoning Americans must ease the pain a bit… perhaps satisfying his need for vengeance. But it’s not enough for this man.
Strategically, Putin has one last move remaining to save face, save his ass, and save his life. Ultimately, he will seek to regain the upper hand by changing the rules of the current war against NATO/Ukraine. Our prediction is that Putin will attempt to weaken his enemies by expanding the theater of war… by manipulating them (primarily America) into a war that siphons off their resources. What would be the most logical strategy here?
Glad you asked!
The Sycophant Syrians would be the most logical weapon in Putin’s arsenal. With back-channel support from Russia, they could attack Israel and exact “sweet revenge” for all the lost wars in previous decades. Sensing blood in the water, the Palestinians would be quick to pile on. Next come the Iranians. Then all the dominoes fall one-by-one. Every Jew-hating nation and anti-Semite encircles the victims.
How will America respond? That’s the easiest question to answer if you understand how religion and politics in America have fused together over the last 50 years. Every election is ultimately decided by people who donate to and vote for political candidates in the primaries. One group understand this best. Evangelical Christians—a fierce political force by all counts—cries out for America to defend Israel “at all costs.”
But this won’t happen—at least not immediately. Why? Joe Biden is the most sympathetic President to the Palestinians grievances that Americans ever elected to office. He defends the Palestinian’s rights to live in Jerusalem (evangelical anathema). Biden is against the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights. And, as we mentioned earlier, Israel is not part of NATO. The most likely scenario is that the Biden administration will drag it heels before giving much more support to Israel.
THAT WILL NOT GO OVER WELL IN AMERICA!
The division between the Red and Blue states will widen. Conspiracy theorists will join the discussion and confuse the masses. Hostilities will increase. Americans will become deeply divided over the contrast between “diplomacy by the State Department” vs. “diplomacy by Biblical prophecy.” More on this subject in part 3 of this series.
Meanwhile, and let there be no doubt here, Israel has nuclear weapons and will defend her “right to exist” no matter the cost is to the world!
Itchy fingers all over the world are within millimeters of the big-red launch button. Every international treaty is under microscopic examination to determine who must defend whom.
Did you know that India has a nuclear arsenal too? And did you know that they along with Pakistan are strategic allies with Russia?
For the first time ever, America is now at DEFCON 1, the maximum state of readiness for all-out nuclear warfare.
The powder keg is in place. The fuse is in Jerusalem. What will be the spark?
