This is from an article in John McTernon's Insights called, "World War 3: Russia's Economic Meltdown"
"And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog (Russian leader), before their eyes."
The world scene is starting to look like pre-World War 2 Japan. In 1937, Japan invaded China and the world wanted Japan out of China. Japan refused to pull out, but needed oil to continue its war. Japan received 80 percent of its oil from the US, and the rest from other countries.
On July 21, 1941, the US issued a total embargo against Japan and froze its funds in America. Other nations followed, and this left Japan with a narrow window of time to either pull out of China or go to war against America. Just four months later, Japan attacked the US fleet at Pearl Harbor and started WW2. Oil was the key reason for the Japanese attack.
Now, 73 years later, Russia attacked the Ukraine and oil is the key. The Russian economy is based on the price of oil which collapsed. There are sanctions placed against the nation. Russia is in a position exactly like Japan’s. Either succumb to the economic situation or war. There is no doubt in my mind that Russia will attack. Japan had a six month window and in the forth month the nation attacked. Russia has no set window of time, but its economy is melting down. Putin must act soon, and I would guess this year. There soon will be social unrest in Russia as the money becomes worthless. This is the possible trigger for WW3 along with so many other events.
Stay close to the Lord Jesus as events are accelerating towards WW3 and the Day of the LORD. No matter what happens keep your spiritual eyes focused on the Groom coming for His bride. What else matters in this world?
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
