Oil, Russia and Israel... 3 Wars yet to come so you might want to take time to read this in light of current events.
The price of oil is down at the moment which brings joy to some and unemployment to American Oil employees. This is obviously a political move by Arab Nations to keep the US from using its own resources because they can't eat sand nor oil so it will keep us buying their oil. But since our "not so patriotic" politicians have made private agreements to buy their oil for years to come it's actually just a photo op to keep us thinking they are giving us a break on our oil prices from time to time.... NOT!!! They are wealthy so they can do this on occasion to control the markets of other nations. But what they don't know is, it's God Almighty that controls the nations of the earth like pawns on a chess board!! The same is true of diamonds, millions of diamonds are kept in storage with a limited amount released into the market place to keep the price high by controlling the market. There are at least three more wars left to be fought according to the scriptures. The "Battle of Armageddon " in Revelation chapter 19:11-21 which is the 2nd war ahead, clearly at the end of the 7 year tribulation and is a World War involving all nations and "White Horse" riders that are Christ and His Church coming down from Heaven!!
The 3rd war ahead will be at the end of the 1000 year Reign of Christ on earth which starts after the 2nd war, Armageddon.
"And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the NATIONS which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to BATTLE; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the SAINTS about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from GOD out of heaven, and devoured them."(Revelation 20:7-9 KJV)
Ezekiel prophesies about another war in Ezekiel 38 when Israel seems to be at peace. Since Israel hasn't had peace since the early days of Solomon's reign this war hasn't happened yet. It doesn't have the characteristics of Armageddon nor the 3rd war in Revelation 20, so it must be yet to come but before Armageddon.
"And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates," (false peace)
(Ezekiel 38:11 KJV)
The only peace in Israel's near future is in a time of blindness when they assume the "White Horse Rider" of Revelation chapter 6 is the Messiah but he is the anti-Christ. The first seal with be opened immediately following the catching away of the Blood Washed Born again followers of Jesus which will release the "White Horse Rider"!!
"And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer."(Revelation 6:1-2 KJV)
The war of Ezekiel 38 will most likely take place sometime between the beginning of "Jacob's Trouble", the 7 year tribulation period and the midway point of this 7 years when the anti-Christ declares himself God then sits on the Throne of David. At this point Israel will know they have made a terrible covenant, the "Abomination of Desolation"!
"And thou shalt come from thy place out of the NORTH PARTS, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes." (Ezekiel 38:15-16 KJV)
(Highlights from article in The Telegraph)
"Russia faces oil export catastrophe, snared in Opec price trap;
Russia's crude exports to drop to $95bn over next 12 months as Saudi Arabia and Opec take aim with oil price weapon;
Comments made over the weekend by Saudi Arabia's powerful oil minister Ali Naimi that the kingdom would not cut production even if pricesfell to a level of $20 per barrel will have sent a cold chill through the corridors of the Kremlin where preparations are already being made to cope with a deep economic recession. Russia is being squeezed hard by a combination of tough trade and financial sanctions and plummeting oil prices, which are eroding its main source of hard foreign currency earnings."

Please notice that a marching army from the North with many people will come south on Israel. Please feel free to look at a world map and draw a line due north from Jerusalem, it will go straight through Moscow. Russia is facing a major financial crisis because they are not wealthy and can't compete with oil at 65$ per barrel much less 20$ per barrel. They will get hungry before long and come south but we have a Savior named Jesus that is watching the prophetic clock as it ticks away.....HE COMETH!!!
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
