It’s official. Russia’s Vladimir Putin has openly called the USA and the United Kingdom “enemies” (first link). Russia has been acting as if this were the case for some time, but now it is out in the open and there is no doubt about it. This candor is of momentous importance. As I’m sure readers realize, Russia is allied with China, Iran and other nations in a rapidly-militarizing alliance. Obviously, they are preparing for war. What nations will be the ones attacked by this militarizing alliance? Obviously, they will attack their “enemy” nations. They now have names: The USA and the United Kingdom. However, the list of Russia’s enemies is far longer than just these two Anglo-Saxon nations.

The cause of Putin’s angry candor is the decision by the leaders of the USA, the UK and other western nations to boycott Russia’s celebration of its victory over Nazi Germany. This celebration will be an especially militaristic one which is designed to showcase Russia’s military might. The first link reports that the military parade will include “a record 16,000 soldiers, more than 200 aircraft and 1,880 military equipment units.” That last category will include tanks, self-propelled armored artillery, APCs, mechanized anti-aircraft vehicles, etc. That is a truly massive display of military force. I think Putin wanted the western leaders at the event so his display of military power would intimidate them.

The second link reports what other nation’s leaders will be boycotting Russia’s military muscle-flexing event. That list includes Poland, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and (partially) Germany. It reports that China, Cuba, North Korea, India and other nations will send their leaders. The only western leader known to be attending the event is the Czech Republic’s leader. The third link reports that the French and German heads-of-state, Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel, have also come under specific angry criticism by Putin for not attending Russia’s military “show of force” parade.

As long-time readers of this blog realize, this headline could practically be ripped from the specific predictions of the biblical prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 re: the latter days. That approximately 2500 year-old prophecy foretells that in the latter days of this age just prior to overwhelming Divine intervention in the affairs of mankind, the nations of Russia, China, Iran and others will form a “Gog-Magog” alliance that will launch a surprise attack vs. an alliance of nations led by the latter-day nations of the so-called “lost” ten tribes of Israel. As readers of my books know, the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel are the Caucasian nations of North America, Europe, Scandinavia, etc. They have never really been “lost.” That is a mostly modern myth. The Jews, Greeks, Romans and others kept track of their Asian locations after they were exiled circa 721 BC. Hosea 1:10 prophesied that God would make their numbers exceedingly large after their exile, and Isaiah 14:2 prophesied they would eventually subjugate the empires that took them captive or held them captive. Josephus wrote they lived “beyond [the] Euphrates” River in the first century AD and that river had then long been the recognized border between the Roman and Parthian Empires. Parthians are mentioned among the devout followers of the God of the Bible in Acts 2:9–which would make no sense unless they were Israelites who still cherished and recognized their Israelite origins. It was Parthia that furnished the Wise Men/Magi of Matthew 2. As huge as Parthia was, there may have been even more Israelites in the Scythian confederation of tribes that stretched from Balkan Europe and the Black Sea region to the Aral Sea of Central Asia. All were generically named after Isaac, which was foretold in Genesis 21:12 to occur.

When Parthia and Scythia fell circa 227 AD, their descendants migrated into Europe over the next few centuries, fighting Rome, each other and eventually furnishing the population bases for the modern nations of Europe. While I will barely touch on the subject, Abraham’s seed was prophesied to be unbelievably large in the future (Genesis 13:16, 17:1-7). His descendants include not only the Israelite nations, but also the Ishmaelite nations (modern Arabs via Hagar), the Edomite nations (Turks and others), the descendents of all of Abraham’s concubines who migrated in very ancient times to an “east country (Genesis 25:6),” and all the nations that descended from Abraham’s many sons via his last wife, Keturah (Genesis 25:1-4). It is my view that many of the nations of Eastern Europe are descended from Abraham via his last wife, Keturah. Who were the sons of his concubines who migrated to an “east country?” Genesis 25:6 doesn’t name those sons or how many there were and it doesn’t name the races of their mothers, but I believe many of their descendants are found in India today. Abraham’s initial name, during which he had those sons via his concubines, was Abram. The ruling caste of India is called the Brahmins. Ancient languages didn’t generally list vowels. If you add an initial “A” to “Brahmin,” one comes up with “Abrahmin”–very recognizable as preserving the names of either Abram or Abraham. India is also an “east country” from the vantage point of the modern Promised Land. When we recall that Abram was originally from South Central Asia (“Ur of the Caldees”–Genesis 11:31), it could easily have been the case that Abram’s concubines included women from the region of modern India and that Abraham later sent their sons back to the land of their mothers’ origins.

As we look at the various alliances developing in the world, they are falling into place exactly as Ezekiel 38-39 prophesied. This confirms that there is a Divine Hand guiding national destinies, and that the Divine Hand is from the God of the Bible who inspired Ezekiel 38-39.

So Vladimir Putin has openly and publicly declared the USA and the UK to be his “enemies.” This reveals who he eventually intends to go to war against, and it is exactly the nations indicated in the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy. The birthright tribes of the original Israelite tribes were the “brother” tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48:14-22) and these two brother tribes were prophesied to, in the latter days, be composed of one single large nation and a “multitude” of nations (Genesis 48:19). Genesis 49:22-26 prophesies that the latter days (Gen. 49:1) will be a time when the birthright blessings of national prosperity will be abundantly given to the nations descended from Ephraim and Manasseh. Manasseh was to be the single great nation and the multitude of nations was to be the related nations of Ephraim. They are easily recognized in the world today. Manasseh is the USA and the British Commonwealth nations of England, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, etc. are the tribe of Ephraim. They are brother nations with a common culture and language, and they bear on them the name of Isaac (“Saxon” is a Roman/Latin version of that name). Logically, since Ezekiel 38-39 prophesies that the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel will be attacked by a military alliance of Russia, China, Iran. etc., it makes sense that the main modern nations to be attacked will be those descended from the Israelite tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. That would be the UK and the USA, respectively…and those are the two nations which Russia’s Vladimir Putin just named Russia’s “enemies” as he prepares for a major military parade to showcase Russia’s growing military power.

Bible prophecy is really being fulfilled today in remarkable detail. For further reading, I recommend my articles, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days?The USA in Biblical Prophecy, and What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III. I also urge you to order and read either my E-book, The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel…Found! or the four-book expanded set which includes not only the material in my E-book but also includes additional information as well. You need to know the information contained in those books in order to understand how biblical prophecies are being worked out today and how they have been fulfilled throughout human history.
