Russia vs Ukraine

Russia's Advance on Ukraine

Ezekiel 38-39 tells us about a future end times war known as the Gog Magog war in which Russia, Turkey, Iran, Sudan and Libya will attack Israel in a desire to take its wealth. It is unclear if this war will happen before or during the 7-year Tribulation. But before this war happens, the United States, Israel’s biggest ally, will not come to Israel's aid. This means at that time, the U.S. will no longer be in a position to defend Israel or it will be unwilling.

In the past this would have been hard to imagine. But today, Israel as well as the other United States allies are trying to anticipate whether the current U.S. administration can be counted on to come to their aid and defend them if they are facing an attack. This is in question after the Afghanistan pullout which happened without coordination with the allies.

But the U.S. allies are not the only ones trying to figure this out. Russia, China, and Iran are as well. Currently Russia is gathering close to 100,000 troops along the Ukraine border. Meanwhile the U.S. administration is telling Ukraine, “don’t worry we’ve got your back.” But Ukraine is wondering if push comes to shove if they can really count on the U.S. and so is Putin.

If Putin sends his troops into Ukraine and the U.S. doesn’t come to their aid, that will send a strong message to Russia, Iran and China that Israel is probably also on their own.

So let's keep our eyes on Ukraine and what our U.S. administration does to help them, if Russia attacks in the next month or two. We also want to be watching for a push towards the One World Government as these leading world powers are making moves as well as positioning around Israel. (Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, Daniel 7, Revelation 13)
