This is huge news in the Prophetic world concerning GOG/Magog and the Chief Prince of Rosh. Listen, break your Bibles out and read Ezekiel 38-39. If you cant see what is happening and the prophetic effects  concerning Russia in these latter days, than you are in spiritual blindness. I am not saying that the Gog/Magog war will happen tomorrow. What I am saying is  that events are being played out that is leading into Ezekiel’s prophecy. You need to see the signs that are happening now.  Russia has revealed her hand and she will cause the wrath of God to fall on her soon.  Hooks are being set into her Jaws and you and I are witnessing God set his plans into motion before our very eyes. The winds of Prophecy are rolling in  and we can sit back  and see what  move God will make next. Ezekiel 38:3-4  And say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. 4“I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords 

WND.COM: Russia is preparing a contingency plan to prompt Hezbollah and possibly the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad into a direct military conflict with Israel, according to a French official who has been apprised of the situation.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the contingency was meant to be used as a card against the West, particularly the U.S. and European Union, which has been engaged in efforts to isolate Moscow.

This past week, the U.S. and E.U. adapted tighter sanctions on the Russian economy, including restrictions on investments in the Crimea, with emphasis on Russian Black Sea oil and gas exploration and tourism READ MORE:

WOW! ‘UFO Takes Down Russian Rocket’


UFO Shoots Down Russian Rocket! Zoomed In


SPACE.COM: “Contact with the carrier rocket was lost in the 540th second after liftoff,” said an official with Russia’s federal space agency, known as Roscosmos, according to Itar-Tass. “It is known that the nose cone did not separate from the rocket.”

There are no reports at this time of any injuries or damage resulting from the crash, according to Russia Today. Future launches of Proton-type vehicles from Baikonur will be grounded until investigators determine the cause of the crash, the outlet added, citing reports by Ria Novosti READ MORE:

RT NEWS: A Russian Proton-M rocket with an advanced satellite on board crashed outside of Kazakhstan’s territory on Friday, about nine minutes after lift-off. The Express-AM4R would have been Russia’s most advanced and powerful satellite.

The crash was likely caused by a failure in one of the third stage’s steering engines, reported Oleg Ostapenko, the head of the Russian national space agency Roscosmos.

“The exact cause is hard to establish immediately, we will be studying the telemetry. Preliminary information points to an emergency pressure drop in a steering engine of the third stage of the rocket,” he said.

Fragments of the rocket and its cargo have apparently burned in the atmosphere, he added, which means they could not cause any damage on the ground.

The launch went abnormal on the 540th second of the flight, when an emergency engines shutdown kicked in in response to the rocket deviating from its intended trajectory, the Russian Federal Space Agency reported after the crash. The third stage, which is called Briz-M, was approximately 150km above the ground at that moment and had some 40 seconds to go before deploying its payload into the orbit READ MORE:  

B-52 Bomber In Action

DEFESEONE.COM: U.S. Strategic Command this week is conducting a massive nuclear arms drill designed to “deter and detect strategic attacks” on the United States and allies.

A Sunday press release announcing the May 12-16  “Global Lightning” exercise explicitly noted that the event’s timing is “unrelated to real-world events.” Observers of ongoing East-West tensions will note, however, that Russia on Thursday conducted its own large-scale nuclear response drill under the supervision of President Vladimir Putin. That exercise was widely promoted in Russian media and included the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile and submarine-fired ballistic missiles.

“Exercise Global Lightning 14 has been planned for more than a year and is based on a notional scenario READ MORE:


BARENTSOBSERVER.COM: Russia’s Ministry of Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters has issued travel restrictions to all employees like the country’s firefighters, ambulance drivers and rescue troopers, reports LifeNews.

A similar travel ban is imposed for parts of employees under the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) including tens of thousands of police officers, prison guards, and other law enforcement agencies like the Federal Drug Control and the Federal Migration Service. Others listed are people with access to state secrets, like certain employees of the Foreign Ministry. According to estimates, they are around 250,000 people.

The two reasons given to explain the travel ban are to take measure to prevent leaks of secrets and secondly, to prevent the possibility of being arrested by U.S. law enforcement agencies READ MORE:

GULFDAILYNEWS.COM: Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea and threat to Ukraine are causing damage he perhaps did not anticipate: disorientation of the US and profound division in Europe, especially in Germany, and in Nato. A real risk of war.

American Secretary of State John Kerry has given an interview to The Wall Street Journal stating that the American government and administration are “fully aware” that this confrontation with Russia could lead to nuclear war. He made an angry attack on the Russian television international service, Russia Today, for declaring that he had threatened Nato war if Russia laid a finger “on a single inch” of Nato

territory. President Obama himself has used harsh words about his Russian opponents, but not comparable to this.

At the same time there is near-silence from the Pentagon and from Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel and senior commanders, including General Martin Dempsey, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This might be interpreted as prudence on the part of the military men who would bear the price of a war that civilian officials brandish as if only words were the weapons.

An echo to Mr Kerry’s belligerence has come from Nato, where the Deputy Secretary General, Alexander Vershbow, a former US ambassador to Russia, accused President Putin of compelling Nato to treat the Russians as “enemies READ MORE:

THE GUARDIAN: Romania has asked Moscow for an explanation after Russia’s deputy prime minister, Dmitry Rogozin, reacting to being barred from its airspace, tweeted he would return in a TU-160 strategic bomber.

Rogozin, one of the senior Russian officials sanctioned by the European Union and United States after Moscow moved to annex Crimea, was turned away when his plane tried to fly to Moscow from Moldova’s breakaway Transdniestria region.

According to his tweets in English, Rogozin, who oversees Russia’s powerful arms industry, was also blocked by Ukrainian interceptor jets as he tried to fly home from the Russian-speaking region of Moldova bordering Ukraine READ MORE:

Arsen Avakov, the interior minister, said that 20 “terrorists” had been “annihilated” and another four captured. “Most of those who attacked the building have left their weapons and hidden in the city,” he added READ MORE:

Armed guard: A Ukrainian soldier looks on at a Ukrainian checkpoint near the eastern town of Slaviansk - a city that has become the focus of the insurgency

ENGLISH PRAVADA: Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Kiev to establish a dialogue within the country, rather than point fingers at other countries. According to Putin, the new Kiev authorities need to take actions to equally treat the rights of those residing on other territories of Ukraine. “First of all, I mean the east and southeast. They need to establish a dialogue to find a compromise. This is what one must do. Looking for the guilty ones outside is wrong. Pies on Maidan – this is a road to the crisis. One needs to understand that the situation is serious and look for serious approaches to its solution,” he said.

The President also said that the government proposed to introduce retaliatory sanctions against the U.S. and the EU, but he has not given permission for it. “The Russian government has already proposed some steps in response. I believe that this is not necessary,” he stressed. However, Vladimir Putin said that “if something like this continues,then, of course, we’ll have to think about who works in the Russian Federation in the key sectors of the Russian economy and how, including in the energy sector.” “We really do not want to resort to any steps in response,” said the president of Russia READ MORE:

RT NEWS: The Ukrainian army is on full alert due to the “threat of a Russian invasion,” Ukraine’s acting President Aleksandr Turchinov said after admitting that the government in Kiev cannot control the situation in the east of the country.

“I am going back to the real threat that Russia would unleash a continental war against Ukraine. Our armed forces have been put on full alert,” Turchinov told Wednesday a council of heads of Ukrainian regions in Kiev, as news agencies report.

He called on the audience to speed up the creation of regional militias loyal to Kiev.

“We must have the capability to move those units fast to support other regions against such a threat,” he stressed.

Turchinov admitted that Kiev simply cannot get the situation in the rebellious eastern regions under control and reiterated earlier accusations, saying some people in law enforcement “are cooperating with terrorist organizations,” the name Kiev authorities use to refer to anti-government protesters who are seizing government buildings in eastern Ukraine READ MORE:

AL JEEZERA.COM:The US ambassador to Ukraine says an “inevitable, sharp reaction” should be expected from the United States if Russian troops were to cross the border into Ukraine.

Geoffrey Pyatt, speaking at a news conference in Kiev on Tuesday, said such a move would be “a major escalation”.

Russia has massed tens of thousands of troops in areas near the Ukrainian border, feeding concerns that Moscow aims to use unrest in the east as a pretext for an invasion.

Pyatt also said the Ukrainian government had been advised not to use force to clear local government buildings seized by pro-Russian protesters.

The separatists have seized city halls, police stations and other government buildings in at least 10 cities and towns across eastern Ukraine.

They are seeking – at the very least – a referendum on granting greater authority to Ukraine’s regions READ MORE:
