Prophecy Sign: The rise of Gog and the Land of Magog, (Russia and it's Leader)
Russia has been very busy of late re-establishing itself as a global super-power and is making great inroads in the Middle-East rebuilding alliances. Right on queue, the nation from the farthest most northerly parts is getting ready to plays it's role in God's future plans for Israel.

Russia Prepares Once Again To Become "Great Power" And Challenge The US
These latest provocations by Russia may provide insight into a military that is now willing to challenge the US similar to the cold war days. Russian President Vladimir Putin is rebuilding Russia's military capability to restore it to "great power" status and is doing it fast thanks to a large population base with a highly trained workforce and a budget of almost $50 Billion annually. With over 140 million people and 13 million college graduates, Russia has nearly a million first-class scientists, engineers and technicians, most of whom work for the military. The Russian military complex is turning out new weapons technology at a rapid pace, many designed to counter US weapons systems. The US has reason to be concerned and has tasked Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster to oversee a high-level government panel intended to figure out how the military should adapt to this Russian wake-up call.
