Putin, will he Last?

There are many reports that Vladmir Putin is sick and no longer able to lead the country. Typically, I would not post on something of this nature, but it may possibly be true. One can Google and see many articles will pop up. 

If this story turns out to be true, it makes more sense from a Biblical Prophecy perspective. Vladmir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu have always had a strong relationship and respect for one another. If another rises to power in Russia, we could first see the prophecy of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 fulfilled with the destruction of Damascus and Elam. You can search for those in this blog if you are not familiar with the prophecies. 

Putin calls Netanyahu as Zelensky visits Washington

The two also discussed regional issues such as Iran’s attempt to entrench itself militarily in Syria, which borders Israel. During his previous term as prime minister, Netanyahu worked out a deconfliction agreement with Russia whose army operates in Syria, to allow Israel to conduct aerial attacks against Iranian targets and their proxies without tangling with Russian forces.

Netanyahu told Putin he “is determined to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and to halt its attempts to establish a military base on our northern border.”

According to the Kremlin, the two men “expressed confidence that Russian-Israeli relations will continue to develop consistently through contacts at different levels.”

Warning to Iran: Joint US-Israel military exercise ‘most significant to date’

Juniper Oak 23 involves thousands of troops practicing land, sea, air, cyber and space drills in Israel in an implied warning to Iran.

With the Syrian/Iran threat removed from Damascus and the Iranian nuclear threat removed, it would perhaps then pave the road to the Gog Magog war of Ezekiel 38. For this war cannot happen until Israel meets the conditions below which is currently not the case.

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, Ez. 38:11

Regardless how this all pans out, time is literally running out. We are quickly moving towards the “Time of the End”. As the current Israeli administration is the most “far right” ever, we are bound to see something this year.

UN’s 70th General Assembly

UN’s 70th general assembly: the greatest political show on earth

“Eyes are on Vladimir Putin as Russian president attends event for the first time in more than a decade, joining more than 150 world leaders in New York”

“In geopolitics, this is the greatest show on earth. For the best part of a week, the world’s leaders – more than 150 of them – will mingle, bargain and argue over the state of the world at the UN general assembly in New York”

The greatest wild card this year will be Putin. It will be the first time he has shown up to talk at Unga for a decade, and he flies to New York at a critical time. While he has eased the pressure on Ukraine, dialling down Russia’s covert military campaign alongside the separatists in the east, Putin at the same time has raised his country’s stakes in Syria in support of Bashar al-Assad, setting up an air base in Latakia and consolidating Russia’s hold on a naval base at Tartus.”

And On and On It Goes……

The amount of various rhetoric and threats from around the world are at an all time high today. While historically this is nothing new, these events are soon to come to fruition. For those watching, they are a warning and prelude of what is to come. But until then The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance“, 2 Peter 3:9

Vladimir Putin has said it is Time to establish a new world order and has warned that the continued “hostile” posturing from the West and its partners could have “nuclear consequences”. In the U.S., Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has stated New world order means endless US wars.

Meanwhile in the Middle East: Just days after US President Barack Obama reportedly sent a letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei extolling America’s and Iran’s shared objectives in the Middle East, the Iranian leader on Saturday again called openly for the destruction of Israel. And posted on his twitter account Plan for Israel’s elimination by arming the West Bank (Palestinians).

While the EU’s new foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, visited the region over the weekend and insisted on the urgent need for a Palestinian state with the eastern half of Jerusalem as its capital. “We need a Palestinian state – that is the ultimate goal and this is the position of all the European Union,” said Mogherini while in the Gaza Strip, adding later during her stop in Ramallah that “Jerusalem can be and should be the capital of two states.”

Various European states are threatening to recognize Palestinian statehood, contemplating a move following Sweden if peace talks between Israel and Palestinians aren’t relaunched.

In the meantime……still watching……waiting…….looking.

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