Russia ships weapons to Iran
Do the Russians never learn, or do they continue on their
path to cause trouble worldwide and to go against every other country on the
We quote herewith an article taken from the net, Special To
World Tribune.com, 24 November 2000. Moscow.
"Having withdrawn from an agreement to end arms sales to
Iran, Russia has shipped hundreds of missiles to Tehran which may be used
The shipment is part of a deal to export 700 SA-16 missiles
to Iran as part of a $1.75 billion contract. Yediot quoted U.S. sources as
saying hundreds of missiles have been placed on a Russian train and ship for
Iran, Middle East Newsline reported.
Russian officials said Moscow would not allow the United
States or any other country to dictate its policy...
Russian defense sources said that President Vladimir Putin
was bowing to pressure by the defense industries. The industries are pressuring
Putin to eliminate all barriers for sales to Iran amid soaring oil prices..." End
And now for the prophetic implications we turn to the
prophecy in Ezekiel 38:1 that speaks about the Russians coming down on the land
of Israel together with their cohorts.
"and the word of the Lord came unto me saying, son of man
set they face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and
Tubal and prophecy against him." Then in verse 5 it mentions those who are
coming with the Russians, that is:
"Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them, all with shield and
helmet. Gomer, and all his bands, the house of Togarmah of the north quarters,
and all his bands, and many people with thee."
It is clear that the Russian inavasion along with their
friends will take place after the peace treaty as we see in verse 11:
"And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of the
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 gate, to take a spoil..."
Many have questioned the statement that this passage refers
to Russia, and yet it becomes very clear when one understands the origin of
these names written for us. Gog is a demon prince living in a demonic area
called the land of Magog. This demonic entity is called the chief prince of
Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk). Then we see by reading verses 3 and 4 that
God is against these armies that come against his holy land, Israel and speaks
of those who will come with Russia. Persia (Iran), Ethiopia a country that has
been dominated by communism for many years, Libya, where General Gadaffi reigns,
Gomer is the Hebrew word for Germany of which half was under communist rule for
many many years until recently, and therefore the spirit of communism is still
there. Then the house of Togarmah refers to the mountains of Turkey, together no
doubt with other Muslim groups who are referred to as 'and all his bands and
many people with them.'
A reading of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will show the reader that all
is not well for this invading force as God will ultimately destroy them, and
even at this stage in history Middle East observers know very well that all
countries are dead scared of attacking Israel, as they have the most powerful
army in the world and their security is very powerful also
However, their own security will do them no good in this day,
and when all appears to be against them with fighting from within and without,
only God Himself and His intervention can save the people that He has put in the
We say again that Israel is for the Jews. The Arabs,
according to the Word of God, do not have any right at all to try and take over
portions of that land, and God will ultimately see to it that His will is
fulfilled come what may. This is not an anti-Arabic statement as we have many
Arab friends in various parts of the world, but a statement that God will do
what He wants and there is nobody who is going to stop Him.
We have discovered over the years that if God makes
statements it pays to go along with everything He says.
Romans 9:20, "Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest
against God? Shallt he thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou
made me thus?. Hath not the potter power over the clay..."
And thus we predict that Russian communism which is still
lurking in the background in particular under the watchful eye of the ex-spy
Putin, will very shortly come to an end once and for all on the mountains of
