(The Hunt For) RED OCTOBER
Matthew 24:6-8-–6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.8 All these are the beginning of sorrows
In the 24th Chapter of the Book Matthew Jesus describes in detail the many events that would occur prior to the end of the age. We know that this generation ALONE has witnessed practically every sign mentioned in the 24th Chapter.
Here in the U.S., our country was hit by one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the country! It is being reported that when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, it was just a Category 3 storm. I’ll talk about that Hurricane in a moment…. The current Hurricane from this past week, Hurricane Ian was a very strong Category 4 storm when it finally made landfall, very close to qualifying to be a Category 5 storm! Several media outlets were reporting that Hurricane Ian had maximum sustained winds of 150 -155 mph.
As was the case with Hurricane Katrina, note that when our government is involved in an effort to divide the land of Israel, our nation is hit by some sort of a major disaster almost immediately afterwards. If you recall in 2005, Former President George W. Bush convinced Israel that it was necessary to remove all of the Jewish settlers out of Gaza and turn it over entirely to the Palestinians. According to the New York Times, the last settlers were evacuated on August 23, 2005 and that precise day, Hurricane Katrina started forming over the Bahamas. The city of New Orleans still has not fully recovered from the damage that storm caused, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in all of U.S. history up to that time. Hurricane Ian may have changed that.
Just last week, U.S. President Joe Biden delivered a major speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly in which he boldly called for the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
1 Timothy 2:1-4—I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
Although it is our responsibility to pray for the leaders of our nation(s), it appears as if the leaders of the nations ultimately are going to continue to push for the land of Israel to be formally divided. I have discussed this in the past in a series of separate posts going as far back as 2016:
I want to mention that what we are witnessing is not just one event as prophesied by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24 coming to past. Rather we are seeing a convergence of multiple events taking place simultaneously!
Which brings me to my next point. It is being reported that as of today that Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin delivered a speech in the Kremlin in which he announced the annexation of four occupied/partially occupied, Ukrainian political subdivisions( Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia ) de facto Russian territory, as well as the defense of which from external attacks from any source can be met with the use of Russian nuclear weapons. The question one must ask is what will be the response of NATO?
NATO had already vehemently condemned Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression against Ukraine which has now past SEVEN months. We already are aware of the fact that the United States, the European Union AND ISRAEL have unilaterally rejected the Russian annexation.
Let us not forget that this week , European and NATO officials are claiming sabotage for three leaks in the Nord Stream 1 & 2 pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Each of the pipelines, Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2, are actually a pair of pipes officials did not accuse anyone directly, but the allegation underscored the uncertainty around Europe’s energy standoff with Russia, and how volatile the continent’s energy security is as winter approaches.
Putin has retaliated and claims that the United States is responsible for the sabotage. See here:
So………..Russia blames the United States, and the United States blames Russia, as does Poland and Ukraine. The European Union is officially silent, and as of now no one is blaming Israel. According to the West, the damage and escaping gas are too dangerous to repair. One might want to ask just exactly where does Europe get its gas supply from?
By 2021, Russia was supplying around 40 percent of the European Union’s natural gas, with some smaller countries, such as Latvia, almost completely reliant on Russia for their supplies. Germany, with its heavy steel industry and gas-powered heating, relied on Russia for just under half of its natural gas.
Now consider this: Thanks to major offshore discoveries over the last decade, ISRAEL has more natural gas than it can use or readily export.
The Ministry of Energy is the governmental body responsible for the supply of energy and management of natural resources of the State of Israel. They recently held a summit in which it was decided that an Israel-Europe gas Pipeline will be built to enable Israel gas to reach every home in Europe. The planned 2,000-km pipeline will cost approximately 20B ILS and expected to be completed by 2025. We are currently 3 months removed from 2023 so this is not too far off win the distant future. See here:
As the Russian energy monopoly Gazprom continues to cut off the gas pipeline from Europe and if Europe becomes more dependent on gas from Israel in the near future…….could it be that as we enter the month of October we are literally looking at the prophetic fulfillment for the “hooks in the jaws of Magog” to to be inserted and will the spoil Magog seeks to seize be natural gas????
Ezekiel 38:1-12–And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of 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 gates,12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
As we head into the month of October and close out the year 2022 A.D., things are about to get very, very interesting…………
