Russia and Her Allies Will Attack Israel

Written by Michael Bradley

This next event will be a major one! The Bible says that inrepparttar latter days, Russia and what appears to be Iran, Libya, Turkey and possibly Sudan will descend upon Israel and try to destroy her.

Israel will have no chance to win against this large army that will attempt to come against her. However, as you will see inrepparttar 140801 Scripture verse listed below, Godrepparttar 140802 Father will come to her rescue and will literally wipe this army offrepparttar 140803 face ofrepparttar 140804 earth. Here arerepparttar 140805 basic facts and Scripture verses that will tell you exactly what is going to happen with this awesome event.

1. The word "Gog" as will be mentioned inrepparttar 140806 Scripture verse below has been determined by many Bible historians to be referring to what is nowrepparttar 140807 country of Russia.

The other strange names that you will see listed below have been determined to be Iran, Libya, Turkey and possibly Poland and Sudan. All of these countries will be joining forces with Russia to try and destroy Israel. You already know that most ofrepparttar 140808 Arab nations hate Israel and would love nothing better than to have a chance to wipe her out.

2. When readingrepparttar 140809 Scripture verses listed below, you will notice that it appears to be Godrepparttar 140810 Father who isrepparttar 140811 One who will be pulling Russia and her allies out to come against His chosen people. The Bible says:

"I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws and lead you out."

3. The Bible says that Israel will be dwelling safely in her land when this event happens - so this cannot be occurring atrepparttar 140812 midpoint ofrepparttar 140813 Tribulation. It has to occur sometime beforerepparttar 140814 midpoint. The Jews will not be living in peace and safety duringrepparttar 140815 midpoint ofrepparttar 140816 Tribulation becauserepparttar 140817 Antichrist will be starting to massacre them once he sits himself in their temple proclaiming himself to be God.

The Bible says that after God destroys this army that will come against Israel, that it will take seven months to buryrepparttar 140818 dead and 7 years to burn all of their weapons left onrepparttar 140819 battlefield. If it is going to take 7 years to burn their weapons, this event will probably occur at least 7 years if not longer beforerepparttar 140820 midpoint ofrepparttar 140821 Tribulation to giverepparttar 140822 Jewish people that amount of time to be able to complete this kind of task. Remember, inrepparttar 140823 first half ofrepparttar 140824 Tribulation,repparttar 140825 Antichrist will make establish some kind of peace treaty with Israel -which may help explain how Israel could be in any kind of peace as described inrepparttar 140826 Scripture verse below.

4. How does God destroy this army coming against His people? He will do it in 6 ways. This will berepparttar 140827 wrath of God coming into full manifestation against this invading army! God will be releasingrepparttar 140828 following judgments against this army:

  • A great earthquake
  • Pestilence, disease and bloodshed
  • A torrent of flooding rain
  • Great hailstones
  • Will pour down fire and brimstone
  • This army will then be so decimated by all ofrepparttar 140829 above judgments, that they will then start fighting and killing on another - probably in an effort to get away from all of this which they will not be able to do.
The Bible says that God will have "FURY IN HIS FACE" and that He will render all ofrepparttar 140830 above judgments because ofrepparttar 140831 JEALOUSY FOR HIS OWN PEOPLE. His fury and jealousy in seeing this army try to come against His chosen people will cause Him to release His Wrath against them in full force.
The release of His wrath will be so powerful when He releases these specific judgments against this invading army - thatrepparttar 140832 Bible says that allrepparttar 140833 creatures and all ofrepparttar 140834 people on this earth will be shaking at His presence.
I believe God is making a powerful statement torepparttar 140835 rest ofrepparttar 140836 world with this event. The Scripture verse listed below says that God will magnify Himself and that all ofrepparttar 140837 nations ofrepparttar 140838 world will know that He isrepparttar 140839 Lord after all of these events unfold!

I believe that this one event alone will cause a lot of people to get saved. It will be so supernatural in its outcome, that people will be looking for answers - and ifrepparttar 140840 Church has not been raptured at this point, Christians will be able to provide answers torepparttar 140841 rest ofrepparttar 140842 world as to what just happened and how it all was prophesied to occur back inrepparttar 140843 Old Testament.

The Scripture Verse

1. Here isrepparttar 140844 main verse that very clearly and very graphically describes this incredible event. This verse is out of Ezekiel inrepparttar 140845 Old Testament.

"Nowrepparttar 140846 word ofrepparttar 140847 Lord came to me, saying, "Son of man, set your face against Gog,repparttar 140848 land of Magog,repparttar 140849 prince of Rosh, Meschech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him," and say, ĎThus saysrepparttar 140850 Lord God; "Behold, I am against you, O Gog,repparttar 140851 prince of Rosh, Meschech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them with shield and helmet ... After many days you will be visited.

A War in Heaven

Written by Michael Bradley

This next event, a war in heaven, will not be able to be seen withrepparttar naked eye byrepparttar 140800 people still left onrepparttar 140801 earth asrepparttar 140802 7 year Tribulation starts to unfold. What happens in this next incredible event is that Satan and his angels are cast out of "heaven" and cast down ontorepparttar 140803 earth by St. Michael and his army of angels. There will literally be a war inrepparttar 140804 "heavens" between Godís angels andrepparttar 140805 Devil and his fallen angels.

To really understand what is happening with this war in heaven, you need to know that there are apparently three "heavens." The apostle Paul says that he was taken up torepparttar 140806 third heaven - Paradise, where I believe he encountered Jesus and possibly Godrepparttar 140807 Father. He says he does not know if he was in his body or out of his body when he had this experience. Here isrepparttar 140808 verse:

"It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations ofrepparttar 140809 Lord: I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago - whether inrepparttar 140810 body I do not know, or whether out ofrepparttar 140811 body I do not know, God knows - such a one was caught up torepparttar 140812 third heaven.

And I know such a man - whether inrepparttar 140813 body or out ofrepparttar 140814 body I do not know, God knows - how he wascaught up into paradiseand heard inexpressible words, which is not lawful for a man to utter." (2 Corinthians 12:1-4)

Many believe that Paul was talking about himself - that he wasrepparttar 140815 one who hadrepparttar 140816 experience. If this verse is telling us that there is a third Heaven, then there must be a first Heaven and a second Heaven. If God and Jesus live inrepparttar 140817 third Heaven, thenrepparttar 140818 first Heaven has to be our earth. The second heaven then has to berepparttar 140819 "air" orrepparttar 140820 atmosphere between heaven and our earth. Satan is calledrepparttar 140821 prince ofrepparttar 140822 power ofrepparttar 140823 "air" inrepparttar 140824 Bible. This is where he and his demons live and roam in. I believe Satan and his fallen angels were cast out ofrepparttar 140825 third Heaven where God and Jesus live long before we humans were ever created. Satan had rebelled against God before we were created and thus was cast out ofrepparttar 140826 third Heaven down intorepparttar 140827 second Heaven -repparttar 140828 Air. The Bible calls Satanrepparttar 140829 "prince ofrepparttar 140830 power ofrepparttar 140831 AIR." Here isrepparttar 140832 verse that specifically tells us this:
"And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according torepparttar 140833 course of this world, according torepparttar 140834 prince ofrepparttar 140835 power ofrepparttar 140836 air,repparttar 140837 spirit who now works inrepparttar 140838 sons of disobedience." (Ephesians 2:1-2)
Satan is not confined torepparttar 140839 bottomless pit orrepparttar 140840 lake of fire and brimstone at this time. He is free to roam inrepparttar 140841 "air" until Jesus comes back for His second coming. After Jesus comes back, Satan is then thrown intorepparttar 140842 bottomless pit for a 1000 years and then eventually intorepparttar 140843 lake of fire and brimstone atrepparttar 140844 end ofrepparttar 140845 1000 Millennium Kingdom.

What happens in this event is that Satan is cast fromrepparttar 140846 second heaven down torepparttar 140847 first heaven - which isrepparttar 140848 earth. The Bible says he really gets mad when this event occurs because he knows he has but little time left before Jesus comes back for His second coming to throw him intorepparttar 140849 bottomless pit.

The Bible then says woe torepparttar 140850 people still left onrepparttar 140851 earth when this event happens - for Satan will then start to release his wrath uponrepparttar 140852 earth! He first goes afterrepparttar 140853 Jewish people, but God will provide protection for 1/3 ofrepparttar 140854 Jews so he wonít be able to kill all of them. The Bible then says that he will then turn his attention torepparttar 140855 rest of Godís people -repparttar 140856 saints in Christ - and this is where you getrepparttar 140857 42 months that Godís saints will allowed to be given intorepparttar 140858 hand ofrepparttar 140859 Devil andrepparttar 140860 Antichrist for persecution.

The war in heaven will probably occur right aroundrepparttar 140861 midpoint ofrepparttar 140862 Tribulation. This event may also explain whyrepparttar 140863 Antichrist, all of a sudden inrepparttar 140864 middle ofrepparttar 140865 Tribulation, breaks off his peace treaty withrepparttar 140866 Jews and proceeds to sit himself inrepparttar 140867 Jewish Temple proclaiming himself to be God - and then startsrepparttar 140868 mass persecution ofrepparttar 140869 Jewish people and Godís saints. Some people actually think Satan himself may possessrepparttar 140870 Antichrist at this time since he has now been officially cast down ontorepparttar 140871 earth.

Why would God castrepparttar 140872 Devil out ofrepparttar 140873 second heaven? Why not just wait till His Son comes back and then cast him intorepparttar 140874 bottomless pit fromrepparttar 140875 second heaven? I believe that when Jesus comes backrepparttar 140876 second time, He will start His descension fromrepparttar 140877 third Heaven where He now resides. He will then pass throughrepparttar 140878 second heaven and then land onrepparttar 140879 first heaven - our earth atrepparttar 140880 Mount of Olives.

I believe God may wantrepparttar 140881 second Heaven cleaned out from Satan and his demons before His Son starts to descend fromrepparttar 140882 third Heaven. The Bible says that Godís saints will be coming back with Jesus when He comes backrepparttar 140883 second time. If Jesus and all of Godís saints are coming together at one time for this event, I believe God may wantrepparttar 140884 second Heaven free and clear of any demons in this middle realm.
