Signs are pointing toward another world war starting very soon

One hundred years after World War I there are many signs pointing toward another world war. It likely will begin in just a matter of months. The flash points are Syria, Israel, Iran, Ukraine and North Korea. The major world powers involved would include Russia, China, NATO and the US.

America is now blaming Assad of Syria for a nerve gas attack that killed scores of people. There is no doubt that nerve gas was used, but blaming Assad for the attack is premature and it might be misguided. After years of the United States telling Assad that he had to go, the United States just a week ago said that he could stay. Why then would Assad now risk losing it all by using nerve agents on a remote village of no consequence?

Assad was not supposed to even have nerve agents. According to Obama, Russia and the UN he gave them up and they were destroyed. Yet, the main stream news media and the Trump administration are convinced that Assad was behind the nerve gas attack. Both stories cannot be true. Did they destroy their gas stockpiles or not? And if they did not, why did Obama, Russia and the UN claim that they did? Why would Assad use nerve gas when he is winning the war and he knows what would happen if he used the gas. It does not make sense.

In response to the gas, yesterday the US launched a cruise missile attack on a base where they think the gas came from. In the short time they had to gather intelligence they can’t possibly know with any certainty that Assad was behind the attack. Ron Paul thinks it is a false flag and he explains why.  Rand Paul thinks the bombing is unconstitutional. The usual hawks like McCain and Graham just love the cruise missile response.

The reports are that Trump turned against Assad and directed the cruise missile attack because he was horrified about beautiful little children being gassed. Before that apparently Trump had little problem with Assad’s bombings that killed tens of thousands of people. False flags are designed to cause emotional knee-jerk responses and if it was a false flag, Trump fell for it.

It is known that Al Qaeda has it own gas manufacturing capability and with Assad winning the war it seems logical to me that Al Qaeda would want to try to make it look like Assad used gas. If you recall, they probably did that a few years ago. The nerve gas attack conveniently allows America to insist that Assad must go after all. The Secretary of State is already talking about building a coalition of forces to accomplish removing Assad. The gas attack gives America a reason to not have a deal with Russia on Syria. The real issue with the deep state Russiaphobe neo-con hawks is Russia having bases in Syria.

You cannot believe anything coming from our government because they lie to the people so much. History is clear that false flags were used to get us involved in past wars. Government leaders today are not getting more honest. Professional political liars and the secret intelligence agencies are controlling the narrative. All is secret because they do not want Americans to even know the truth.

Are we now going to once again support Al Qaeda against Assad? It was the Arab Spring revolution that started the Syrian civil war. America helped fund and arm that revolution in the first place. Many of the rebels America supported soon morphed into ISIS. Six years later, a quarter of a million dead, and Europe being destabilized by millions of war refuges and America learns nothing. That is exactly what Russia is saying.

Russia says Assad did not do it. They claim bombs hit a facility where the gas may have been stored. Russia will oppose America’s actions in Syria and if Russians are killed it could spiral into a world war. Russia is already feeling paranoid with NATO and the neo-cons building a first strike capability near its borders. It will not take much for Russia to believe that an imminent attack is coming and to preemptively launch against strategic targets.

Putin has said that conditions are now worse than they were in the cold war. In the cold war, there almost was nuclear war a couple of times when Russia thought it was about to be attacked by the West. Europeans and American Globalists are acting like they want Russia out of the picture and Russia is acting like a wounded bear. We should keep in mind that Russia is allied with Iran and Syria. We should sit down with Russia and work out these issues instead of acting like Russia is a threat to everyone. It can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

America would be the big loser in a nuclear war against Russia. Most of the Russia population would survive but most Americans would die due to their near total dependence on modern infrastructure. The destruction of America is what some globalists want, so it may happen. A war with Russia might be the best way to bring that about.

If America got in a war with Russia, China might fight with Russia. If America gets in a war with China, Russia might fight with China. A naval or air conflict in the South China Sea could break out at any time and quickly escalate into a war. This becomes even more likely if the world economy tanks.

America has just made it clear that it will use the military option if the nuclear buildup and missile development in North Korea does not stop. I think North Korea will attempt to take down our grid if fighting takes place. The North Koreans have two satellites in orbit over the United States and there is a good chance that one or both have a nuke on board. I suggest that those satellites be taken out before America attempts any military action against North Korea.

If we get tied down in Korea or anywhere else, I can see Iran making a move in the middle east. Iran could release Hezbollah to fire thousands of missiles into Israel. Israel will then occupy Lebanon and air strike Iran. Syria with help from Iran would try to take back the Golan Heights. There could be a world war started in the middle east with Israel, NATO and the Sunni nations on one side and Russia and the Shiite nations on the other. Where Turkey would align is anyone’s guess.

Turkey is being controlled by an Islamic dictator that is black mailing the EU by threatening to send millions of Muslim invaders to further destabilize Europe. I am convinced the Muslim invasion of Europe will bring about civil war in Europe. The only question is where it will begin and how soon?

President Trump thinks he is his own man but it seems to me that he gets misled quite easily. It appears that the deep state establishment with its neo-con hawks are back in control. The decision to bomb Syria makes Trump look tough and that probably was the main reason for it. That attack is not going to fix the problem in Syria, it will just get us deeper involved. The gas attack gave the neo-cons an excuse to send a message to North Korea, Iran, Russia and China.

Why is Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, acting like some alternate Secretary of State? The conflicts against Steve Bannon originate with Kushner and security adviser McMaster. Apparently, these two are more acceptable to the deep state then Flynn and Bannon. McMaster does not believe that there is Islamic terrorism or that radical Islam exists. He appears to be a neo-con Russiaphobe. We are now getting the same type of people that Clinton would have put in. It also is a mistake to put close relatives in the White House to work on policy. Trump will prove to be more loyal to his family then he is to his promises to the American people.

Many high level positions are still filled or are being filled with Obama people and Islamic agents. If Trump just made one mistake, I might call it a fluke but I am seeing a very troubling trend developing. After just a few months in office it looks like Trump is beginning to abandon some of the platform that he ran on.

There are betrayals underway by the Trump administration that make it obvious that Trump has little interest in carrying out some of the agenda that he ran on. The health bill that Trump supported was not a repeal and replacement of Obamacare. It was a statist socialist bill that was much like Obamacare. When the Freedom Caucus opposed it, and the bill was not passed, Trump declared war on the Freedom Caucus. He called the Freedom Caucus and the Democrats the enemy. The influences of the Freedom Caucus got Trump elected in the first place.

Trump ran on deporting all illegals but that changed into just deporting those with a criminal record. One prime example of betrayal is seen in Trump’s selection to head the Border Patrol. The Border Patrol feels betrayed by the Trump administration. The Border Patrol was against the Obama immigration polices and that is why they stood with Trump in the election. Trump gives them payback by putting a guy in charge that advanced the Obama agenda that they hated.

It looks to me like Kushner, Ivanka and McMaster will increasingly set the Trump agenda. Ivanka and Kushner think like democrats and that will reflect on social issues. McMaster will work with the neo-con hawks and get us involved in more nation building and foreign wars. I do not think the libertarian views of Steve Brannon will exist in the White House much longer.

With all the flash points suddenly appearing at the same time, I have to think the globalists intend to get the world into another world war. With Europe breaking apart, I think the globalists have now come to a conclusion that a new world war is necessary in order to realign the nations, bring a superstate in Europe and bring about their globalist agenda. Mostly the U.S. and Russia stand in the way of globalism. They will try to get them to destroy each other.  After all, order out of chaos is their motto.

Why do the elite want a world war now? Because their old world order is collapsing and they know they are about to be exposed for their widespread pedophilia rings and satanic witchcraft. They do not want to go to prison where grown men will give them payback. Many of the Western elite have remote hideouts where they think they can survive a world war and then come back and set up a new world order and rule again. Remember, their fascist daddies hid in the Americas after the Third Reich was defeated.

I can easily see Iran, North Korea, Russia, China and others forming an axis to fight against the  world order that is now being enforced by America. World War happened twice in the last 100 years. They both were started to realign the world order and bring about globalism. It will happen again in the very near future. With all the flash points and with all the unstable leaders in charge, it might be wise for us to stock up on supplies while we still can.

Signs are pointing toward another world war starting very soon — 63 Comments

  1. Hi Don,
    Kushner is an interesting character. He owns 666 Fifth Avenue, is a devout Jew, and is setting himself up for something big. Hmm. Makes one wonder.

  2. doug,

    he is also in charge of brokering the middle east peace deal!!! hmm interesting.. i might actually consider stockpiling cuz this is getting out of control

  3. Don you hit the nail on the head. Everything you said is exactly what I am thinking as well.

    I do not like where we are headed. I voted for Trump and will still support him, but he has made some serious mistakes. Namely turning his back on the base.

    This strike on Syria may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Eventually Russia is going to act. You cannot keep pushing and not expect retaliation. When it comes, it will be swift and punishing. Remember, Putin stated that the US would not be so fortunate in the next world conflict and I believe he is absolutely right.

    I pray for the families of our soldiers who are most likely headed back into harms way. How quickly many forget the sacrifice that is given. All of these talking heads giving their strategic opinions. All of them blood thirsty for war and death. Not them though. Always someone else’s blood.

  4. Hi Steve,

    Yeah we should pray for our soldiers, but an EMP will hit home. Americans don’t realize just how vulnerable we are. Putin understands that America can be taken down in a flash.

  5. the only way to make assad step down is to destroy damascus like it says in the bible and i think that prophecy will come soon.

  6. If things get much worse I may head to the family farm. Only problem is that I have land, but no shelter. Yet anyways.

    An EMP would bring walking dead scenario to real life. Thank the Lord I don’t live in the big cities. I try to keep a bug out bag in my car with food, water, ammo, make shift survival kit. Would only last me so long though.

    Anyone have any suggestions for survival stuff? Maybe a book that is recommended?

  7. Hi Don,

    All I know is what I read, what is reported, and it looks like I’ve read everything you talk about in this article. Unfortunately I have to agree with you on all of it.

  8. Don, if we have WWIII does that change your timeline for the Rapture? In part of my misspent youth I was a submarine officer (on a missile sub), I believe that WWIII would go nuclear, with the bombs going off like Fourth of July firecrackers. The problem we discussed, in my time, was that a tactical weapon we use would be seen as a strategic weapon by the other side. Once one goes off, a lot more will likely follow. It is easy to see the massive casualties that start in Revelation 6, should that occur.

    I believe we are in the time sequencing that God has set to restore Israel as the center of his interaction with mankind and to remove the Church. That said, God may not allow the war, at this time. God may allow destruction of the US without the Rapture, but WWIII would have such huge consequence that it would seem, to me, to be the great war discussed in Revelation 6. If you are correct about it starting in 2017, we may see the “Blessed Hope” of the Church this year. I believe that God will delay the war until his time is ready for the spiritual restoration of Israel, if he is not ready yet. He may be ready to do so though. However, as a believer, that has seen a few hard times, I always remember Psalms 37:25. “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Whatever happens, we are to keep our faith in our Lord and trust him to guide us through it.

  9. Don,

    I have been reading for several years from Israeli News Sources that Syria still has massive stockpiles of Chemical Weapons from Saddam Hussein.

    Israel News claims that Israeli Intel knows exactly where they are, they monitor them around the clock, and will strike and destroy them if they (Israel) ever feels they are a direct threat to them, via the “wrong people” gaining access to them.

    I think it is most likely that the Intel Trump acted on was from Israel anyway…and I’d bet it was accurate.

  10. Hi Don, all,

    I have been following along over the last couple months, and sad to say, I have to agree with everything that’s been written. It’s all coming to a head, and it’s like waiting for the storm to hit, that you see on the horizon. I don’t really have much to add. But, getting familiar with survival skills, and having supplies on hand is never a bad idea. You might want to learn gardening too, if you never tried your hand at it. I’ve been at it for little over four years now.

  11. I always wondered if what others in alternative media said is true, mainly Trump being a globalist plant though it would be hard to fathom or he is a damn good actor. Even though he appointed Gorsuch, I have no faith in him. Look what happened with Justice Roberts. After seeing some of his appointments I have to wonder, but he may also be getting poor advice along with the leftover deep state employees still in Washington. D.C. Is a cesspool of corruption and the American people, myself included trust nobody in the upper echelon of government, business, or media. It’s as though we have become what the USSR once was. I don’t know how America could survive an attack from a foreign nation, let alone survive the division of its people. I always stockpile water, canned & packaged food, toilet paper, cash, etc, but only for a 2-3 week period. After that there is no point. I will have to rely on God for provision if it’s his will or I will meet my maker sooner than expected.

  12. Hi Phil,

    I think a world war can happen before the Rapture. After all we had two of them in the last 100 years. I really do not have a timeline for the Rapture. I just say the second coming will most likely be in the 2030’s

    I also am not saying that this world war will start in 2017. It probably will start in the next year or two but it could evolve into a world war from a regional war over even more years.

    This war could be the war at the second seal in Revelation but remember I think the first seals occur before the last seven years. In any case, there will be a number of big wars after this one.

  13. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one extremely dissappointed and concerned with the direction Trump has taken. How did Trump go from saying we will destroy ISIS and befriend Russia, to bombing Assad under false pretenses and agitating Russia?! This is no different than if that evil hag Hillary would have won. Plus this happens as soon as Bannon seems to have been pushed aside for Jared Kushner. Who is this Kushner guy anyway? We did not elect him, but he seems to be the 2nd in command for some insane reason.

  14. Nice article once again.

    Perhaps Trump launched that missile attack to show he’s not aliened w/ Russia? To kinda debunk media talking points, That’s why it didn’t do much damage they just used that airstrip again & launched another attack using conventional weapons this time.

    It probably was a false flag for multiple purposes.

    Why in the world would we allow North Korea have one satellite not to mention two! over the United States is beyond me.

    With Trump I’m hearing his attention span isn’t that great he goes w/ the last opinion he hears. That might be rubbish but I’m not too pleased w/ him.

    Kushner’s brother gave money to Clinton and supports Clinton’s in a big way. Kushner’s rise on the world stage is very interesting to me and that he’s Jewish too..

    Don, now does the antichrist necessarily have to be Assyrian?

    That seems to be the only hole in this case. IF he makes a piece deal w/ Israel I think people in the prophecy know will began to scratch their heads.

    As all the rumors of war come to a head and missiles began to fly say as in stages rapid stages that is, then if the cool headed Kushner calls for a emergency world council at once to halt all fighting then comes up w/ a solution for piece then I think we have a case.

    We live in interesting times.

  15. bill,

    it is a possibility but i thought the antichrist had no love for women and kushner is a married man so im not sure about him.

  16. Bill, He has no love for Jesus, who was “the desire of women”. Back then, the desire of women was to give birth to the Messiah.

  17. Hi Bill,

    Every time there is a Jew associated with the white house we get such unmerited speculation.

    Kushner is not the Antichrist. Yes, it appears to me that the Antichrist needs to be Assyrian. He is said to come from Dan of the land of Bashan (the Syrian side of the Golan heights).

    In any case, nobody is the Beast Antichrist until he gets a head wound that is healed, become incarnated and kills the two witnesses. When he rises pseudo Christians will think that he is the return of Jesus Christ. Jews will think that he is the Messiah. Muslims will think that he is the Mahdi, Buddhists will think he is the Lord Maitreya, Hindus will think he is the Lord Vishnu and on it goes. All religions will see him as a fulfillment.

    Besides, Kushner is too skinny and pleasant looking to be the Beast. Satin would reject him. The Beast Antichrist will have a fierce countenance. (Da 8:23).

  18. I think Don is correct that Antichrist is an Assyrian from Dan , I believe a careful verse by verse study of Daniel 11 supports that conclusion. I also think Isaiah 10 supports that conclusion. He may very well have some Jewish heritage or connection.

  19. I believe it is possible to have another World War without a nuclear holocaust being the end result. After all what kinda of spoils will go to the victor if everything is destroyed and uninhabitable? I believe the use of tactical nukes would be much more likely. It may be that nuclear warheads are somewhat obsolete anyway.

  20. Steve,

    A scrimmage in not a world war. Russia has Satan II missiles that can deliver a warhead rated at 200 megatons. Do you think they are willing to lose a world war with the United States when all they have to do is put one EMP over the United States and send us back to the nineteenth century? The spoils of war are not the issue. Sovereignty would be the issue. The problem in this country and why the nation is now at risk is that everyone is living in glass houses but too many of them still think they can throw stones.

  21. wow thats a monster bomb, i think the bomb dropped on japan wasn’t even 1 megaton so 200 is a crazy number

  22. Don that is true. I guess Russia views themselves as the resistance to the NWO.

    Also, what’s your take on Israeli influence in our govt? If it’s there do you see it as a positive? It’s my opinion that we should support Israel at all costs, but I know some do not see it that way. For instance war with Iran or something of the like that could be avoidable. Maybe that is too off topic.

  23. Hi Steve,

    I think being on the right side of Israel is in our best interests.

    The U.S. is not going to avoid war by trying to appease evil predator regimes.

  24. crazy article.. these russians have some powerful missiles able to destroy the size of france? huh we dont stand a chance and they have no reason to be scared of us

  25. So Don, would a single nuclear strike with a large megaton payload have the same type of EMP affect on our national grid as one detonated in the atmosphere over the US?

  26. Seems to me an EMP strike by one side would result in the same type of retaliation by the other side . Both we and the Russians have nuclear capability from submarines . If you attack us are you also attacking Canada and Mexico as they would likely be affected to some extent. Also , just read we have dispatched The USS Carl Vinson carrier group to the Korean Peninsula .Things could get interesting there. I see no good solution for the situation in Syria, and would leave it alone unless Israel is attacked. I personally would go nuclear if necessary to defend Israel.

  27. Steve,

    An EMP only happens in line of sight of the nuclear blast. The big factor is the altitude of the nuclear blast not the payload. It is likely that Russia would attempt to cause an EMP to cripple America and at the same try to take out any retaliatory capability. For example, Russia probably could take out all of our aircraft carriers and our nuclear bombers bases in a flash. Hitting them back with nukes than is pretty much down to our subs and some NATO assets. Russia also has the capability to cause tidal waves on our coasts. By the way, Russia and China probably can take down our grid by just using cyber warfare. We might not even know who did it. Would we then nuke them?

  28. Don Fritts,

    We have much more to to lose from an EMP war. Russia does not have our grid. Russia is not an economic power. Russia also is much larger. I also think at their high latitude an EMP would have less effect. If Russia takes down our grid, up to 90 percent of people in the US could die because of the collapse of vital infrastructure and the social breakdown. I doubt if we could take out 15 percent of the Russia population even with an all out nuclear attack.

    Russia is far more prepared for a nuclear war than America is. They have huge underground shelters and even the civilians drill for a nuclear attack.

  29. Thanks for the breakdown Don. I seem to remember reading an article somewhat recently about Russian civilians drilling for a nuclear strike and taking shelter in one of the bunkers. The US population will be completely caught off guard if a nuclear war breaks out.

    An interesting note. I found one of our old fallout shelters at a post office near me. There was a radiation sign on the outer wall of the building labeled fallout shelter.

  30. Hi you all, Dr Savage had a segment on nerve gas Friday, most agreed that it was not nerve gas used because the cleanup crew was in there without any protection. Also the choking and spasms are a symptom of a different type of gas. Anyway I am totally convinced they have something on Trump and/or that he is not very smart and/or is corrupt. He has let me down on everything he has done/not done. Sad and I am grieving. I was prepared for it, but it still hurts.
    These convergences are happening on all fronts…medical, food, water, geopolitical, and more. We need to be prepared on all fronts. I agree that after a month or so of being a prepped, what is it worth? I hope Jesus comes to get us before it gets reall really bad.
    God bless.

  31. Don,
    I came across a statement last night that said if America collapsed (was destroyed) the world economy would collapse. Economics not being my strong point I did a little research but came up with some agreeing and some disagreeing. What do you think?

    If so, who would be foolish enough to try to destroy us? If not so then my question is moot.

  32. Hi Caitlin,

    It does not matter. If the world economy collapsed, national economies would still exist. Who would be so foolish? Those that think that they have sufficient resources to recover from a world war.

    By the way, war does not have to come as a result of a rational decision, usually war is the result of emotional responses.

  33. With China’s deployment of 150k troops to the NK border, I wonder if Trump and Xi came to some sort of agreement on regime change and or military action?

    I guess the troops could be there to prevent a massive refugee crisis on their border. Or perhaps they will actively participate in the removal process, quite a diplomatic accomplishment if true. Maybe another option, Chinese support for NK. Which would be quite problematic. In any case I hope we can avoid war. Unfortunately that is looking less and less likely.

    Don, would an EMP strike on NK be beneficial in nullifying their response? Be it conventional (artillery) or nuclear?

  34. Okay Don thanks.

    I don’t think Trump or Putin are stupid men but as you say “rational decision vs emotional responses.” Is there any rationality in Kim’s head at all?

    I’m not abandoning Trump because Assad lost some planes. The whole world has become so unhinged I’m just caught up in where does it go from here and how long will it take to get there.

  35. Hi Steve,

    I would think the Chinese troops are being put there in case the Kim regime falls. They do not want Koreans coming into China.

    I do not think nuclear EMP’s over North Korea would degrade their forces very much. I am sure their nuclear weapons are hardened and their other stuff is pretty low tech. I think we could use conventional EMP’s for critical target areas.

  36. With the number of nuclear missiles that the usa has, it doesnt even have to make a direct hit to kill 90% of the population not only of Russia but also kill by fallout the surrounding european countries and parts of china.
    Russia’s underground shelters cannot even accommodate 3% of it’s population.
    But granted it means some of them will survive but it wont be as optimistic for them as you think.
    Nuclear fallout and radiation everywhere.
    Then remember russia is very cold.

    America has already hardened several of its bases and missiles against EMP.
    Their priority would be protecting operations.
    They dont really care about the civilian population.
    Russia can kill them off and the super elite wouldnt care.

    Inspite of this, i dont believe America and Russia would want to go this far.
    It isnt time yet.

  37. bongito,

    We target military assets not population centers. Our nukes are relatively low yield, so I do not agree that 90 percent of Russians would die in a nuclear war with the U.S.

  38. Don, the problem that I see is not the wide scale destruction of 90% of the population. In my misspent youth I was an officer on a Polaris submarine. I read every public article that I could concerning this. The problem Russia has is that it’s transportation and communications all go through a limited number of chokepoints. One article, from Scientific American, I think, in the 1980’s analyzed the effect on the Soviet Union. One big issue, at the time, was that the centralized state had 90%, I believe was the number, of the rail lines went to Moscow then from Moscow. The same was true of telecommunications. They were much easier to control too. That was the product of the centralized state planning. The rail system has probably not changed a lot, telecommunications probably have. A war which disabled the rail transport and telecommunication system of the US or Russia would paralyze either country. A lot of minorities in Russia do not like Russia. Because of that, I personally, consider that destruction will not happen before the Ezekiel War. Gog has to have a large, undamaged state (or so I think) to produce the army Ezekiel foresaw. I do not really think Russia or China will push to a war of nations now because they will not survive (we may not either). I agree the main threat is the short fat guy in North Korea or the religious nuts in Iran and an EMP attack.

  39. I’m going to be controversial because of a desire for biblical truth, not from a desire to be contrary.

    Naked Bible Podcast Episode 152: Ezekiel 38-39, Part 1 (Terminology)
    Heiser addresses the fallacies of translating Hebrew nesi’ ro’sh as “prince of Rosh” and interpreting the phrase as modern-day Russia. and the difficulties ancient translators had with the term.

    Episode 153: Ezekiel 38-39, Part 2 (Interpretation)

    Okay, bottom line from part 1. Gog-Magog is not Russia and has nothing to do with Russia. If this is correct it could be a game-changer in the way we view Russia and the end times. I’m not saying I know which view is correct, but it’s a valid study from someone who actually can translate Hebrew.

    Part 2 addresses who Gog-Magog is.

    I’ll leave it to all of you as to whether you want to explore this, it’s on You Tube.

    Does it change a potential with a war with Russia? I don’t know but there doesn’t seem to be any reason for one if neither the US or Russia are involved in the Ezekiel 38-39 war.

    Have a nice Easter ya’ll.

  40. Thanks for bringing this up, Caitlin. I too have been listening to Dr. Heiser’s podcasts — I’m going through them all from the beginning — and debated whether or not to mention it here because the Gog/Magog/Russian theory is so firmly entrenched in the conservative, pre-trib mind. I too thought it was settled science because Chuck Missler taught it as truth, but realize now that it isn’t necessarily so. Dr. Heiser’s Ezekiel 38 & 39 studies (as with most of them) were real eye-openers.

  41. Doug, Caitlin, I have not listened to anyone’s podcast. He may be right, I suspect that we will all someday look back and say WOW! However, I based my opinion on the free book published by Dr. Jon Mark Ruthven at this link . He may be wrong too. I do not know but there is still the “uttermost part of the north” discussion in the Bible. There is only one “uttermost part of the north”. I still think Russia. I would be foolish to trust my interpretation, but we need to trust Christ. Whatever happens, we are his. The whole thing may be post rapture, I have read that too. Even without Ezekiel, Russia will not want war with us. They would lose and lose badly if it remained non nuclear. No one would win a nuclear war but they would cease to be a viable country should that happen and Putin wants to avoid that as much as we want to avoid seeing it happen here. I believe Don is still right. The danger is the small fry like NK or Iran.

  42. Hi Caitlin and Doug,

    The idea that it is Russia is not just based on the word Rush. The Rush argument is nothing new and it is not the basis for believing that the main player is Russia. For example, according to Dr. Ken Johnson. The book of Jasher (a 1000 BC history book) indicates that the people in question in this Ezekiel prophecy settled in what is now South Russia. In fact, he thinks those who teach otherwise really do not know ancient history.

  43. Be careful with Dr. Heiser. He has no real Eschatology. He does not know when it will all play out. I do not believe Heiser even claims to be premillennial. People with his background usually are amillennial. In other words he does not look at prophecy like those that take it literally.

    Nothing is settled science for those that believe Bible prophecy is some form of allegory.

  44. Hi Phil,

    Dr Ruthven is another scholar in the same league as Dr. Ken Johnson. They both claim Russia will lead that war. When I published an article over ten years ago on this topic, Dr. Ruthven emailed me giving me support for what I said. He also sent me a copy of his book that researched this. I then provided a link to his book from that article. The book is called The Prophecy That is Shaping History. Click on that title to get a free pdf copy of the book.

    This is my article on this topic.

    Actually, it probably was this article that triggered his email.

  45. Hi Don,

    Not sure if Heiser is Pre or A, but I do know he doesn’t talk much about it, and he doesn’t traffic much in Eschatology. As far as Magog is concerned, he claims these people are well known and from from around Turkey. The big concern I have with Dr. Heiser is that he is so scholarly-centric, I come away from his teachings with the sinking feeling that the only way to really understand the Bible is by immersing myself in Semitic history and learning Hebrew, Greek, Assyrian, and Ammorite Pig Latin. It’s at these times that I have to remind myself that God’s word is for all ages and all peoples, and therefore must be able to be understood by all who read it, if they do so diligently. I have no problem with Russia not being involved in Ezekiel 38 & 39 — at present Russia does seem to be more Christian than the US — but I do have a problem with the church going through Jacob’s Trouble, which is another area he plays it close to the vest. Even so, his teachings are very interesting and educational. Exercise discernment is the advice here.

    I tried clicking on the title above, Don, but nothing happened.

  46. Hi Doug,

    Just because someone is an expert in ancient texts does not mean they will teach all theology correct. I mean the Bible Answer Man (Hank Hanegraaff) just converted to Eastern Orthodox?????

    I believe experts with Premillennial Theology on matters of Eschatology. Many amillennial people are just trying to disprove anyone with premillennial theology. Make no mistake, the Bible taken literally only teaches Premillennial Theology. Those that think differently are interpreting scriptures through their theology.

    I forgot to put in the link but I fixed it.

  47. The Bible man goes Eastern Ortho? Who’d have thought it? I’m just sitting here shaking my head in wonderment. It just keeps coming ,don’t it ? Unreal.

  48. Just wanted to add my two cents in on Dr. Heiser. When his name first was mentioned on one of your other blogs, I was really interested and so went to his website and also watched a few You Tube videos he made. It didn’t take me long to realize he was way above my pay grade, but still interesting. However, I happened onto one of his You Tube videos, a very short one talking about the rapture. The way he explained it left me with a terrible sinking feeling that the rapture would not happen. That’s when I quit listening to or reading anything of his, because when I read the Bible, it plainly says we have the Blessed Hope. That’s what I hold onto every day. It’s what keeps me “running the race.” So, Don, I thank you for pointing out that just because an “expert” says something, doesn’t make it so. Thanks for all you do, Don. I couldn’t get through the day without you and Grace Thru Faith.

  49. Thanks Grandma Linda,

    If I recall correctly Heiser does not believe in Dispensational Theology with its pre-trib Rapture doctrine. Like I said, those that believe that the Bible teaches Premillennial Theology should get further illumination on Bible prophecy from premillennial teachers. The very early church fathers before Augustine taught that those in Christ would be removed before the tribulation. A literal interpretation of the scriptures does not allow for amillennial or postmillennial beliefs that often become infected with Replacement Theology.

  50. Hi Don,
    I was pretty sure my post wouldn’t play well here.

    Heiser is amillennial and he doesn’t even like to get into eschatology. He has said some things that made me angry because I didn’t agree but that doesn’t make him wrong about everything just as premillennial teachers are not right about everything.

    It wasn’t long ago that I still believed Eve was talking to a snake in the garden. I’ve learned a lot from Heiser and from you too and I haven’t agreed with you on all points either. Unless someone is way out in left field I don’t shut them off because there’s something that could be learned from them. I know enough about the bible to use discernment but not enough not to explore. My personal opinion about Russia is irrelevant but I do believe Gog is a supernatural demonic being.

    BTW, Heiser does agree with you about the gap theory, he says no. That didn’t play well here either, did it? lol.

    I’m still in the process of filtering out traditional presumption. A lot of the comments on your blog are interesting, useful and educational. I learn from them too.

  51. To me, one of the worst issue’s these days, are those who are always searching for the next NEW thing. But in reality, “there is nothing new under the sun” just different takes, on old heresies. One of the things done most, is redefining words to make new ideas fit preconceived notions. Not just redefining, but rather RE-interpreting the meanings of those words.

    I guess God’s Word needs their help after 2000+ years. The plain meaning is just too easy.

  52. Hi Caitlin,

    I am aware of much of Heisers teachings. He is very good when he stays within his area of expertise. He misses it on Bible prophecy because he does not take Bible prophecy or Revelation literally. Yes, Heiser does not buy into the gap theory. It creates more problems than it solves.

  53. Hi David L,

    Gnosticism is reappearing big time in Christianity. Those that claim new knowledge are redefining the faith. When the false Messiah appears the neo-gnostics will believe that he is Jesus Christ because their “enlightened” understanding of Christ will allow for it.

  54. Just getting around to reading your summer articles. This article I noted an error. The Shia cannot be on both sides. I am sure you meant that the Sunnis would be on the side of NATO and Israel.

  55. I think you fixed it the wrong way?
    I believe the Sunni nations align with Israel and NATO. The Shia nations of Iran, Syria, and now Iraq align with Russia.

  56. Thanks Don,

    I needed a good laugh! Self deprecating remarks always welcomed. We all have dyslexia at times though.😁

  57. I see a third major war on the horizon as well. After all, each major war, was implemented for a specific reason. World war 1 brought us the league of nations and This failed to unite the world. Then the second world war brought us the United nations. This has stuck. I feel the third World War will bring us the One World Government. They will say that the world needs to unite with one government to avoid any further conflict so men can live in Peace and Safety.Then the end will come.
