Ukraine or Israel

There certainly has been no shortage of “rumors of war” lately. China attacking Taiwan, North Korea against South, Iran against Israel, and the most pressing, Russia against the Ukraine. Will we now see the “wars”? 

If you want to understand what is going on with Russia and the Ukraine, I highly encourage you to watch the video update below from Amir. Will this turn into an all out war between Russia and the western powers, maybe but it could also be the catalyst that brings in the many end time war prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled. I agree with Amir that Isaiah 17 must be fulfilled before the Ezekiel 38 war comes about. I would take that a step further and say maybe even the prophecy of Nuclear Iran and the Prophecy against Elam 

The latest rounds of Iran nuclear deal should be wrapping up soon and will most certainly be more in their favor prompting a possible disaster on their Bushehr nuclear facility which is said to already house nuclear weapons. If that is destroyed, the next logical position of attack of retaliation by Iran would come from Damascus prompting the Isaiah 17 prophecy. 

This may drag on for a while or may commence very quickly, but we must continue to watch, waiting patiently for our Lord. 

Since the release of Amir’s video, the following has taken place:

President Vladimir Putin: I hereby recognize the sovereignty of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.

Syria – the first country to recognize Donetsk and Luhansk

Iran’s supreme leader: This is the beginning of the post-American era

2022 will not be an uneventful year by any means both abroad and at home. Video posted below. The first is a quick review of America’s response to the Ukraine situation. The second is Amir’s update. 

Elam Rising

Movement at the Bushehr power plant in Iran draws this prophecy closer to fulfillment.

Ali Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, announced on Monday that construction of the two new nuclear plants have begun in the southern Iranian city of Bushehr.

“Everything is moving ahead in an excellent manner,” Salehi was quoted as saying in the country’s state-controlled press. “I was in Bushehr two or three days ago and the Bushehr 2 and Bushehr 3 power plants are being constructed.”

Putin orders start of Russian military withdrawal from Syria

Putin orders start of Russian military withdrawal from Syria, says ‘objectives achieved’

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu to start the withdrawal of forces from Syria starting Tuesday. Russia will however keep a military presence at the port of Tartus and at the Khmeimim airbase to observe ceasefire agreements.

Putin to Assad, Tehran: You want to carry on fighting? Count me out

A deep rift with Tehran over the continuation of the Syrian war and an irreconcilable spat with Syrian ruler Bashar Assad over his future prompted Russian President Vladimir’s shock order Monday, March 14, for the “main part” of Russian military forces to quit Syria the next morning. This is reported by debkafile’s military and intelligence sources. Moscow would retain a military presence at the naval port of Tartous and the Hmeymim airbase outside Latakia.

The Russian president did not fix a timeline for the military withdrawal – only its start. Neither did he promise to discontinue all military operations in Syria.

He did say only that “The task put before the defense ministry and Russian armed forces has on the whole been fulfilled” and he spoke of a “fundamental turnaround in the fight against international terrorism.”

To some extent, Russia has kept a volatile country from going completely ballistic. Once the majority of the Russian military is gone, will the country resume its’ tailspin? Will Iran or Hezbollah be the instigator?

We know the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17) is yet to occur, and we know it is caused by the children of Israel.

In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation. Is. 17:9

One would think Israel would not create this type of destruction as long as a country as powerful as Russia were present, but now they leave….what’s next? Will this prophecy occur in the near future or will it commence in the seven year Tribulation? Will it be before or after Gog and Magog? Time will tell, but this author leans towards a pre-Gog & Magog occurrence. 

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Tit 2:13

Saudi Arabia, Turkey Discussing Unlikely Alliance To Oust Syria’s Assad

Turkey and Saudi Arabia, two nations with a long history of rivalry, are in high-level talks with the goal of forming a military alliance to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

Russia lifts ban on S-300 missile deliveries to Iran

Sources told Reuters more than a year ago that a deal worth up to $20 billion was being discussed with Tehran and would involve Russia buying up to 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil a day in exchange for Russian equipment and goods.

And finally…….

The official noted that cooperation between Russia’s state nuclear company, Rosatom, and AEOI is proceeding well. In November, Tehran and Moscow struck a deal under which Russia is to build eight new nuclear reactors in Iran.

According to the agreement, four of the planned reactors are to be constructed at the Bushehr nuclear station, already the site of one Russian-built reactor. The remaining four are to be built elsewhere in the Islamic republic, though the exact location has not yet been determined.

Concerning the joint Arab army:

The Egyptian delegation is also expected to discuss the creation of a joint Arab army.

Houthis, Iran, and the Saudis

Over the last year Iran has developed a major presence in the middle east conflicts and “Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) are now leading war action in four Mid East arenas: Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon,while building Shiite “popular” armies deferring to Tehran in three: Syria, Iraq and Yemen.”

Like so many other Middle East countries, the country of Yemen has recently fallen into civil war with the Iranian backed Houthis at the center. With the recent solar eclipse behind us, Saudi Arabia and Egypt in a joint effort, have attacked the country of Yemen. It seems the predictions of Middle East expert, Avi Lipkin are now coming to past. The end game is the capture and control of Islam’s two most holy cities. That of Mecca and Medina located in Saudi Arabia. Both the Sunnis (Saudis) and the Shiites (Iran) want control.

We are one step closer…….while the Iran Nuclear deadline is fast approaching…..
