One more absolutely deep and interesting update from Amir Tsarfati on the recent events in the ME.
Things, you will never read in the mainstream media.
“My own plans are made. While I can, I sail east in the Dawn Treader. When she fails me, I paddle east in my coracle. When she sinks, I shall swim east with my four paws. And when I can swim no longer, if I have not reached Aslan’s country, or shot over the edge of the world into some vast cataract, I shall sink with my nose to the sunrise.” - Reepicheep
From link - MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s government unexpectedly resigned on Wednesday after President Vladimir Putin proposed sweeping constitutional changes that could allow him to extend his rule. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said he was stepping down to give Putin room to carry out the changes, which, if implemented, would shift power to parliament and the prime minister - and might thus allow Putin, 67, to rule on in another capacity after his current term ends in 2024. ... Attention now turns to who becomes the next prime minister. The array of possible candidates includes Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, who is credited with breathing new life into the capital.
Wednesday’s changes will be seen by many as the start of Putin’s preparations for his own political future when he leaves the presidency in 2024.
Whoever he picks as prime minister will inevitably be viewed as a possible presidential successor - echoing the way that Putin stepped down from the presidency in 2008 to become prime minister under Medvedev, who then stepped aside four years later to allow Putin to resume the presidency.
In power in one of the two roles since 1999, Putin is due to step down in 2024, when his fourth presidential term ends.
He has not yet said what he plans to do when his term expires but, under the current constitution, which sets a maximum of two successive terms, Putin is barred from immediately running again.
2024. Another sign that that year could be a high watch year. If we are still here.
Sweeping top to bottom change to the government of the Russian Federation came as the result of a stunning speech this past Wednesday (15JAN20) by its President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly. In the speech Putin announced reforms that would change the very nature of Russia's governance. Those changes resulted in the instantaneous resignation of the entire government. The resignations were not in protest of the announced reforms, but in support of them and of Putin's objective agenda behind them. In the midst of this single day upheaval came word that an obscure apparatchik of the Russian tax service (my thought - What is it they say? "only two things are certain, death and taxes.") , Mikhail Mishushkin, was elevated to the office of Prime Minister. Mishushkin was elevated in leap-frog fashion above a total of thirty-two (my thoughts - So, that would make him the 33rd?) Deputy Prime Ministers and Ministers of the Government with nary a single protest. Not so much as a peep. Tsar Valdimir has spoken.
Or should it now be acknowledged, Gog of Magog the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, has spoken.
On that last statement, maybe. Or maybe this... Mikhail is a Hebrew name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Mikhail is: Gift from God. Last name is Mishustin not Mishushkin. In Russian, Misha is a short form for the Russian male name Mikhail (Michael), and Mishka is a diminutive of Misha. This name, in any of its forms, is a common colloquialism in Russian for a bear. The bear is the symbol of Russia. The Bear of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13? A Hebrew name, From Russia, in alliance with Iran/Persia, possibly coming down from the North in areas of the world with a high Muslim populace. So is the Bear Russia or Persia or both in alliance? What of the 3 ribs in Daniel 7? Interesting take on the 3 ribs in this link - www.christianforums.com/threads/bear-and-three-ribs.7859610/ One possible theory from his article. 3 Military powers. (Russian/Iran/Turkey?) Also interesting, his 3 periods of time in history, each being 666 years, end at 2027.
Born on the 3rd day of the 3rd month of 1966. Interesting things in the week of March 3rd, 1966 - In that week of March people in US were listening to The Ballad Of The Green Berets. In UK The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore was in the top 5 hits. War and Peace was one of the most viewed movies released in 1966 while A Gift Of Prophecy was one of the best selling books. Hmmmm.... worth watching this man's actions.
From link - Baghdad (AFP) - Three rockets slammed into the US embassy in Iraq's capital on Sunday in the first direct hit reported after months of close calls, as thousands of protesters kept up anti-government sit-ins across the country.
The attack marked a dangerous escalation in the spree of rocket attacks in recent months that have targeted the embassy or Iraqi military bases where American troops are deployed.
None of the attacks has been claimed but Washington has repeatedly blamed Iran-backed military factions in Iraq.
mike: i find Amirs understanding of Revelation very narrow in that he only sees the book linear "Chapter 6 comes after chapter 4" - in this Corona virus update www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1kPkltskn0

EnochWalked: "it embodied the controversial notion that it might be possible to fight, and win, a battle with nuclear weapons, without the exchange leading to an all-out world-ending conflict." By "controversial" they mean "suicidally deluded".

visit-r: Strange, It somehow feels like censorship to me. As a Christian AND a senior citizen, I do not ever remember experiencing this before. I also believe it is a current event that needs to be aired.

Natalie: I wish I understood the video a bit better. Yes, Trump is a lover of self and many have made an idol of him. He's done a lot of good but he's not the Savior. I see God using Him for this time.
Feb 25, 2020 14:43:44 GMT -6
visit-r: Hi Natalie. The video is obvious - nothing deep to understand. Not all of the idolizing throngs are "Christians", but you can bet a good many of them are. The present day political parallels with WWII era, Nazi Germany, and Hitler are all there.
Feb 25, 2020 14:50:53 GMT -6
visit-r: And, I see no "bit of good" that he does. Sorry folks, nada.
Feb 25, 2020 14:51:37 GMT -6
visit-r: I can only hold my peace as I'm able, and pretending there is no problem is not helpful. I have noticed that certain "topics" are even off limits - even for "eschatological" discussion. So, I guess if I am "put out of the synagogues" then so be it.

visit-r: I just watched in horror today as he hypocritically berated CNN's Jim Acosta for trying to do his job. Nope, sorry, this acceptance of such behaviour - IS NOT what Christians believe. I'm convinced "Christians" have become todays "Pharisees".
Feb 25, 2020 15:12:02 GMT -6
visit-r: The Pharisees also believed that THEY were God's "standard bearers" of their day. Yep, the parallels are all there for anyone to see. Y'all should want to make peace with those "lefty sinners". Jesus walked among them - now didn't he? Sickening.

Natalie: I'm not going to defend him or how he does things. I voted for him because of what the Republican party stands for and because of what I had heard about Pence. I could not in good conscience vote for the other candidate.
Feb 25, 2020 15:24:20 GMT -6
visit-r: I'm sorry to hear that. Have a good day.
Feb 25, 2020 15:25:42 GMT -6
Natalie: Maybe you should stick around and get to know the people here instead of just lumping everyone together.
Feb 25, 2020 15:29:26 GMT -6
visit-r: Yes, jump in. The water's fine. So, I've been told. Frogs and tepid water.
Feb 25, 2020 15:31:41 GMT -6
Natalie: then, may I ask, why are you here?
Feb 25, 2020 15:34:30 GMT -6
visit-r: Because I too believe in the signs and that Jesus is returning soon. Just been visiting for a few good links and articles (there are few...), but I am not a "rapture" hound. And now I am here no longer.
