End Times Prophecy Expert, the late Dr. Grant Jeffrey says, “Aside from Russia, it would be difficult to name any other nation to the far north of Israel that is capable of leading a huge confederacy of nations from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East against Israel. Furthermore, Russia is the arms supplier to every one of these nations.
They all use Russian AK-47 rifles, T-72 tanks, missiles, and personnel carriers. For the last four decades Russia has trained the military officers and intelligence staff of all of the nations listed in Ezekiel’s prophecy. The phrase ‘Prepare yourself’ and ‘be a guard for them’ may indicate Russia’s future role in providing arms and military leadership to the huge confederacy of nations.”
After the invasion of Israel by Russia, (Russia – lose) according to the prophecy in the book of Daniel, there will be a time lapse of about three-and-half years, a time when the Jews rebuild the Temple (Revelation 11:1–2).
