Every once in awhile I read a news story that totally mystifies me. This is one such occasion. France is considering a Russian request to sell a sophisticated French aircraft carrier to Russia. I’m nonplussed! I wonder if France sold warplanes and warships to Hitler’s Germany just before World War II? That would make about as much sense as selling an aircraft carrier to Russia now. Allow me to digress to put this into biblical perspective.

As readers of this blog know, Ezekiel 38 prophesies that an attack will be launched by Russia, China, Iran and its allies against the modern nations of the ten tribes of “Israel.” Most Christians today are clueless that in biblical prophetic terminology, the terms “Israel” and “Judah” are not synonymous. These biblical terms refer to totally different modern peoples and nations! When the Bible refers to the Israelis/Jews in prophecy, it uses the term “Judah” as in Zephaniah 2, Zechariah 14, etc. I urge everyone to count how many time the term “Judah” is used in Ezekiel 38. You will find the number is “zero,'” which means the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 has nothing to do with the Israelis/Jews. In its narratives and prophecies, the Bible consistently refers to the descendants of the non-Jewish ten tribes as “Israel” or the “house of Israel,” and Ezekiel 38-39 are full of such references. Ezekiel 38:16 indicates this prophesied “Gog-Magog” attack will target the modern nations where the “people of Israel” live in the latter days, not the “people of Judah” who now live in the old Promised Land. Genesis 49 and Revelation 7 prophesy all the tribes of the ten tribes of Israel will be present among the modern nations in the latter days, so to find out what modern nations will be attacked by the Gog-Magog alliance, we need only identify the modern nations descended from the ten tribes. As readers of my books, articles and blogs realize, this isn’t hard to do.

The modern nations of  the ten tribes of “Israel” are the very nations which were the historic enemies of Russia and China in the Cold War: the NATO and western nations. If you have not done so, please read my article “The USA in Prophecy” available at the homepage of the website. It clearly identifies the USA as the leading nation of modern “Israel,” specifically the “birthright tribe” of Manasseh which was prophesied in Genesis 48:17-19 to be a single great nation in the latter days. The British nations (England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand) are the “company (or multitude) of nations” descended from Manasseh’s “brother” tribe: Ephraim. Many Scandinavian and mainland European nations are descended from the other eight tribes of the ten tribes of Israel. France is the tribe of Reuben, which would ordinarily have been the top tribe of the house of Israel because Reuben was the oldest son of Jacob, but Reuben lost his birthright because of his excessive sexual appetites and he even slept with his own father’s concubine (Genesis 35:22, 49:4)! Hmmm. Does a reputation for “wine, women and song” fit the French even as it did forefather Reuben? These NATO/western nations will all be attacked by Russia, China, Iran and their allies at the end of the latter days in the years ahead of us. There is no chance that this event will be avoided. It is certain. God will bring this prophecy to pass just as he has brought all his other prophecies to pass! If readers of this blogsite understand who the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel are today, you are way ahead of the leaders of modern nations in understanding what is happening in modern geopolitics. If you wish to see all the documentation that many modern western nations are descended from the biblical ten tribes of Israel, you can find it in my books on the subject (see the “books” link for on-line ordering) or you may listen to free audio presentations on this subject at the “speeches” link at this website.

Russia is now remilitarizing under Vladimir Putin’s vigorous leadership and has come into stronger confrontation with the West over energy prices and natural gas deliveries, American missiles in Poland and the Czech Republic (President Obama meekly “caved” to Russia on this issue, which will only embolden Russia more) and other issues. China is very rapidly building all kinds of military equipment to attack the USA and the West and is hacking key American infrastructures so it can shut them down in a cyberatttack when this future war occurs. American intelligence officials have said Russian and Chinese spying vs. the USA has reached Cold War levels. Previous blogs have documented all of this. Iran calls the USA “the Great Satan.” It is evident that the alliances of the West and East prophesied in Ezekiel 38 are the very rival alliances now extant in the modern world. The Russian- and Chinese-led alliance is preparing for the Gog-Magog War. The Western nations are blinder than bats and do not see it coming. They are blind because they are duped into thinking the Bible is unscientific and that God is not real. Baloney! God and the Bible are proveably real and God’s sovereignty is absolute. The modern nations will fulfill his latter-day prophecies whether they realize they are doing so or not.

So France (Rueben) is considering selling an aircraft carrier to Russia, the leader of the alliance that is prophesied by God to attack France and all the other nations of the West in the latter days in some future year ahead of us. Because they have forsaken God’s Word, Matthew 15:14’s words about the “blind leading the blind” certainly applies to the leaders and populations of the modern western nations. They are now thinking about helping to arm their future attackers. This absolutely amazes me, but maybe it shouldn’t.  II Thessalonians 2:10-11 states that God will send “strong delusion” upon those who do not receive the love of his truth. The modern western nations have abandoned the God who made them great and they pay no attention to biblcial truths, so “strong delusion” now guides the policy decisions of modern western nations.

Of course, we Americans are hardly in a position to criticize the French too vigorously. The USA has relocated much of its own industrial capacity to China, which denudes the USA of the ability to rearm and defend itself in a future war. A cable-TV program I watched some time ago (it might have been the Lou Dobbs show on CNN-TV) reported that the USA’s own textile and shoe-making capacity is now so shriveled that in the event of a war with China, the US could provide neither uniforms nor shoes for draftees in an expanded army. If you think things are bad now, just wait a few years.
