Russia Could Replace US as Israel’s Primary Ally in Middle East

Prophecy Sign:  The rise of the Land of Magog - Russia


Bible prophecy tells us that at the time of the end, a powerful nation state from the farthest most points north of Israel, (which many prophecy scholars interpret to mean present day Russia), will look gleefully at the riches of Israel.  This 'hook in the jaw' will cause this power player to enter into an alliance with several Islamic nations and attempt to invade Israel for those riches.  The following articles seemed to indicate that the hook is now being set and the reeling in will begin shortly.  

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him  and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army. Ezekiel 38:1-4 NIV


This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme.  You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land. Ezekiel 38:10-12 NIV 

Russia Could Replace US as Israel’s Primary Ally in Middle East
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is strengthening ties with Russia, while Washington's influence in the Middle East is waning. On Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Moscow to hold talks with President Vladimir Putin and to celebrate 25 years of diplomatic relations between the countries. It is Netanyahu's fourth face-to-face meeting with the Russian President in less than a year. For comparison's sake, the Israeli Prime Minister has met US President Obama only once in the last year.

Israel and Russia: BFFs? Netanyahu’s budding ‘bromance’ with Putin
It’s no secret that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a thorny personal relationship with the leader of his country’s closest ally, President Obama. There is a long litany of faux pas and numerous public comments showing that there is no love lost between these two. That’s why it’s no big surprise that Netanyahu this week is on yet another trip — his third since September — to Moscow, to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The trip was meant to mark 25 years of bilateral relations between Israel and Russia but, as many in both countries pointed out, it also indicated a blooming “bromance” between the Russian president and the Israeli prime minister.

Netanyahu invites Russia to develop Israel's gas fields
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow. They discussed economic cooperation including energy ties. "Our doors are open for every company from any country that has vast experience in the development of gas fields, including Russia, of course," said Netanyahu at a joint news conference, adding that there are no legislative barriers stopping Russian companies working in Israel. Putin was also asked about the gas contract with Poland which expires in 2022. The Russian President said Gazprom is looking for another partner in Europe who will buy the volume taken by Poland, including Israel.
