Read How Russia Could Conquer Israel

The following is part of an article on  The interview with the defected Russian spy is at that site.  I cannot move it here due to copyright matters.  Please go read the interview.  What I want you to understand is this:  America will collapse before the final stages of the end times.  The Middle East must rise, and prosperity will be rampant, as in the days of Noah, just before the rain came down.  There will be no world war before the rapture of the Lord's Church, according to the Bible.  Life will be good.  Y2K could be enough of a crisis to take the USA down, collapse the US dollar, and install Europe in the political driver's seat.

Now, where will that leave Russia?  She will be all alone, and the Middle East will be the trade and political center of life with Europe co-ruling world trade etc.  Russia will see the state of Israel as a target for food and wealth, and the Arab nations will welcome Russia to attack Israel.  This war is described in Ezekiel 38-39.  Read it.  This event has NOT happened yet, and it now fits very well in the flow of the immediate future.

I believe Russia is tooling up for this last war in which five sixths of her population will be destroyed in the battle.  What looks like preparation for attack on the USA will be turned by Satan in the minds of the Russians.  They will turn against Israel.

Here is the NewsMax article up to the interview:

Defector Reveals Russian War Plans

Christopher Ruddy
February 8, 1999

For and The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has just released a new video with Colonel Lunev, and a special report by Christopher Ruddy on how Y2K increases the risk of a Russian surprise attack against the United States.

WASHINGTON - Russia cannot threaten the United States. She is poor. She is weak. She is starving. She is in chaos.

Think again, says Stanislav Lunev.

Col. Lunev is the highest ranking military intelligence officer ever to have defected from Russia. He did so in 1992 after the Soviet Union dissolved and Boris Yeltsin had come to power.

At the time of his defection Lunev was living in Washington with his wife, working a cover job as a journalist for TASS, the Russian news agency, while doing his real job: spying on America.

As a GRU officer Lunev's spying related to military matters: gathering information on America's military plans; reporting on U.S. vulnerabilities; devising special operations in the advent of war.

Last year, Lunev detailed just some of his activities in a new book he co-authored with Ira Winkler, "Through the Eyes of the Enemy: Russia's Highest Ranking Military Defector Reveals Why Russia is More Dangerous than Ever" (Regnery, (800) 639-7629).

The book is a light read with some sensational details about Russian plans to bring suitcase nuclear bombs into America and to use special forces to assassinate the president and congressional, military and other leaders during the initial phases of a war.

Lunev claims in "Through the Eyes of the Enemy" that Russian military leaders still view a war with the United States as "inevitable" and that the Cold War never really ended.

Save for some talk radio outlets and the Internet, Lunev's book got little media coverage. This comes as no surprise since most Americans believe the United States won the Cold War. Russia is not a threat and any suggestion that it is has to be written off as just paranoid jingoism.

Lunev is used to unfriendly receptions. When he did defect, higher-ups at the CIA and the Pentagon did not accept what he had to say.

What he said was rather simple. Russia is continuing its old ways. The military is still preparing for war against the United States. A nuclear war.

In the era of fuzzy warm feelings between the United States and Russia, American officials were not going to upset the applecart no matter how much evidence Lunev offered.

In the intervening years, Russia has appeared to further disintegrate. Can she really be a threat? skeptics ask. Lunev most certainly has been proven wrong.

Lunev says think again. He retorts that Russia still retains a formidable military-industrial complex. She is one of the world's largest arms exporters. She makes quality products and delivers them on time.

Russia continues to build nuclear submarines, bombers and missiles. Last year Yeltsin commissioned Peter the Great, the largest ballistic missile cruiser ever built by mankind. This past Christmas, Russia deployed a regiment of 10 Topol-M intercontinental ballistic missiles, missiles reportedly more sophisticated than anything we have. Just last month, Russia unveiled her stealth bomber. The New York Times reports Russia continues to build huge underground bunkers, some as large as cities, in case of war. She also continues to build an arsenal of chemical and biological weapons. Russia's nuclear arsenal remains the world's largest. She continues testing of her nuclear weapons.

Such facts demonstrate that Lunev, who refuses to be photographed for security reasons, is not to be dismissed.

Editor: Balaam's Ass Speaks--  Again, please go read the interview with General Lunev.
It is the height of folly to assume that the threat of a restored Russia is null and void when the Bible indicates she will attack Israel soon, and then after the 1000 year rule of Christ, Gog and Megog try again with Satan.  If you really believe the Bible is absolute truth, this news item comes as expected and anticipated.

Here is the final destiny of Russia.  
She has many terrible but awesome years
to pursue her hate for God and His nation Israel.

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

8 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.

9 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.

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
