This week President Putin announced he was pulling out most of his military from Syria. His announcement shocked many who assumed Russia was eager to grow its military presence across the Shi’ite Crescent. I had indicated in my post the day before that Putin was “in Syria to stay”.

REFUTING THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST: THE STUBBORN GEOPOLITICAL REALITIES
Why Geography Mandates Russia and Not Turkey Will Be Gog
Readers of my blogs know that I express worry that Russia is being backed into a corner economically and will come out swinging.

We taped three radio programs with Larry Spargimino of SW Radio Church in a “fireside chat” format rather than a ‘full-on’ debate. I anticipate these programs will air in … Read More
One of the core tenets of the Islamic Antichrist Theory (IAT) is that the conflicts of the last days are regional… they are not global. The Antichrist is from Turkey. He leads an Islamic horde (including its rival Iran!) against Israel. Europe and the United States are not involved in the Battle of Armageddon (which is also considered in IAT as the same War as the Battle of Gog and Magog). Is this true? Are Bible Prophecies limited to the Middle East? Were biblical writings ignorant of
Mystery Babylon and the Daughter of Babylon are references to a last day’s kingdom, ten kings, nations united under a “king of fierce countenance” (aka the “Little Horn”), and a global gentile economic, political, and religious system that stands opposed to the City of God – the Holy City – Jerusalem.

It has been a subject that I have written and spoken about extensively. Many of my
