PROPHECY QUESTION 3

QUESTION 3
With all the good news about Russia and the fall of the Soviet Union we ought to look forward to a time of peace on earth. What about the talk that the Bible prophesied Russia as invading the land of Israel. Which are we to believe?

ANSWER:
It was so called good news when Chamberlain and Roosevelt came back from their meeting with Hitler in l939. They returned with a peace treaty; but it wasn't long before we were in a total war with him.

The Bible is the only guide. In spite of outward and apparent circumstances we can always rely on: "THUS SAITH THE LORD." While I am not decrying the turn in Russia's system I am not accepting it as good news. Good news can only be determined by it's outcome. The bible is very clear that a nation from the far north of Jerusalem will march into the land of Israel in the last days, Ezekiel 38. The names mentioned in Ezekiel 38:2, are all associated with Russia. The countries in Ezekiel 38:5-6 are allies of Russia. The words "north parts" in Ezekiel 38:15 means the "extreme north." The times in Ezekiel 38:16 are the "latter days." These things alone tell me that Russia will come against Israel in the last days. Russia will be miraculously defeated by divine intervention, Ezekiel 38:22-23. Do not be deceived, Russia is a candidate for a revolution. Things could be different next week at this time. Russia is in a transition period; where she will end up, we have not yet seen?

Be ready. Jesus is coming soon. Trust Him and be saved.
