Russia has invaded Crimea, and troops are patrolling the significant peninsula. Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Crimea in 2014, and the continue slowly march south toward the Middle East. Also, Ynetnews is reporting Israel is raising its alert on the northern border with Lebanon and Syria.
Russia may be trying to bait Israel in attacking Syria upon a Hezbollah attack on the Jewish state. Isaiah 17 states that Israel will destroy the city of Damascus, and I believe it could unleash Ezekiel 38/39. Watch both developments along the Israeli border, and the Russian invasion of southern Ukraine, Crimea, because Gog may be on the move to fulfill Scripture. Watch for news out of Turkey and Iran and any military movements that may come from those countries. Time will tell, but Russia is rising in time for its destruction upon the mountains of Israel.
One significant news that must not be missed is the paralyzing EU response. Is it time for a very strong EU foreign minister to replace the current Catherine Ashton in time for 2015? America’s weakness also fulfills Scripture because no one will come to Israel’s aid in the Ezekiel 38/39 war. America is too weak to protect Israel, and Russia knows it.
