It has finally happened. A secular media article has stated that Russia, China and Iran form an anti-American alliance. Notice the subheading under the main title, which states: “This is no Cold War: Russia, China and Iran are already striking back online.” I’m sure the writer of this article had no biblical perspective in mind when he wrote that subheading. However, the prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 is now being brought to pass so obviously in world geopolitics that even secular writers are listing these three nations as heading an anti-American, anti-Western alliance in our time. This is to be expected as Ezekiel 38 prophesied these three nations would form such an alliance, as I’ve been warning for over two decades. Today’s media stories are now confirming the prophecy of Ezekiel 38, whether they realize it or not.

The first link also has updated information on Russia’s major re-militarization program which coincides with China’s major militarization programs and Iran’s determination to build nuclear weapons. It notes Russia is now producing “three new, utterly-modern armored vehicles,” “a new MIG-35 fighter,” and even a “mobile surface to air battery that  can bring down cruise missiles in flight.”  It reports that Russia now has 22,550 tanks! That is far more than I realized. This fact alone practically screams the necessity of not retiring the USA’s A-10 warplanes which are designed specifically to take out tanks and armored vehicles. The last I read, the Obama administration wants to disarm the US military of this critical weapons system by mothballing them.

In related news on the Gog-Magog alliance of Ezekiel 38, the second link provides an update on the militarization of China and the third link reveals that even liberals are beginning to be worried about how much Obama is surrendering to the Iranians in the Iranian nuclear talks being conducted between Iran and a group of western nations.

The author of the first article pens these words: “we’re in a new arms race…so we’d better start playing for keeps.” It is my view that while Russia, China and Iran are “playing for keeps,” the Obama administration is still just “playing” on the world stage. There is no indication the Obama administration grasps the nature of this new arms race. It was just last year he scoffed at ISIL as a “B-team” threat and didn’t take it seriously. He could hardly have been more wrong. The Russian-Chinese-Iranian alliance is clearly the “A team” of threats to America and its allies. I hope someone convinces him to take this threat seriously.
