Middle East Update – What Will Russia Do?

Commentary & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

I landed in OK City safely and my good friend, Bob Ulrich met me at the Baggage claim.  When we left the air-conditioned terminal, Bob quipped, “Welcome to the oven!”  The temperature was over 100,’ and I immediately took off my jacket and rolled up my sleeves.

We headed out to Prophecy in the News as Bob had a few items to attend to, and I made my way toward the product room where I eyed the latest books and DVDs.  We then headed out to see Gary Stearman and wound up talking with Gary and his lovely wife Doris, until eight, pm!  We covered everything from the Nephilim, UFOs, Ezekiel 38 and Big Foot!   Then it was off to P.F. Chang’s for a late night dinner.  We will shoot two interviews today on Watchers 4, and then I head back home to Los Angeles, to start working on my presentations for the Branson Conference, which by the way, is sold out!

Now to todays business at hand!

Russia and China vow to protect Syria from becoming another Libya

Russia and China vow to protect Syria from becoming another Libya – English pravda.ru

And with the recent announcement of joint war games, and one of the biggest, among China, Russia, Iran and Syria, the signal is going strong for forces that wish to intervene in either Syria or Iran.

Iran’s Fars news agency reported that more than 90,000 soldiers from the aforementioned 4 countries would take part in the military exercises, making it the largest in regional history. Theses war games will include air defense and missile units as well as ground, air and naval forces and are scheduled for early July.

Although it is very clear that Russia and China are saying No to Syrian intervention, President Obama clearly seems to defy this intention. If this happens, the situation would certainly move towards a conflict, a conflict for which the Chinese and Russian militaries have now long been preparing for whereas the US military is already stuck in major failed campaigns such as Iraq and Afghanistan. And with proxy engagements in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan, it would be daunting task for the US forces to face Chinese and Russian militaries.

Here is an interesting article that our Weasels-in-the-stream, media seems to have overlooked.  I would encourage everyone to click the link above and read the entire article.

It would appear that Russia is not going to back down, as it has repeatedly stated that it will put its military muscle behind the faltering Assad regime in Syria.  Russia, combined with China and Iran are about to conduct the largest war-games in the region’s history.  British commando units are in Damascus and Turkey is chomping at the bit to attack Syria so the big question is when, not if Russia will move to counter the British and multi national forces that are moving into Syria.

Obama rebuffs Erdogan’s appeal to lead Turkey in Syria attack

From a Biblical, prophetic, viewpoint all of this movement of troops and munitions begs the question, are we looking at the formation of the ancient prophecy of Ezekiel 38 being fulfilled?  I h ave stated this before and do so again now, that Assad has a large chemical weapons cache and at some point I believe he will use it against Israel.  Israel is not going to stand down and do nothing if she is attacked and if Syria does attack it will surely lead to an all out confrontation.

The battle lines are drawn and I believe we are seeing the formation of WWIII.

In closing todays post:  It is now summer and our INTEL has reported that Israel will more  than likely move against Iran between July and September.  Of course this is no secret and the Iranians are expecting an attack.  I will close with this “word” that I received while at a conference in Maryland as God is in control.

Be still and know that I am God.  Behold, the days are coming when I will show my strength on the mountains of Israel.

  1. How does one embed youtube video? It has been done before— I just know it.

    Anyhoo, the moderated-failure-to-link video is: “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH1InoWMCh8&feature=g-u-u”

    Looks like N/S Korea (China/US) is to be thrown at the fan, too, simultaeously. Woo hoo.

  2. Today’s top fire news from the Southwest is that 32,000 people have evacuated from the fire region around Colorado Springs. (Wednesday). I am in northern New Mexico, and for several weeks we have been without that smoke which afflicted us when the wind blew from the south, where the Gila Fire was raging at that time. Our sky is a beautiful blue with fluffy white clouds, or “fingerpainting” cloud shapes. Thank you, Lord, for a day without smoke,
    and prayers for those displaced in Colorado. Please pray for all of us threatened with fire, smoke pollution, and poisonous chemicals from fire-fighting slurry. If we have to evacuate Los Alamos it will be the third time since year 2000. People could hardly believe we had evacuated twice, in 2000 and 2011. So I know how it feels in Colorado.

  3. Our God is an AWESOME God!

    In the valley of death during the dead of night I remain bold in faith that Your strength will conquer all. If God is with us then who can be against us. Death… Where is your sting!

    It’s getting close now. Thank you Jesus.

  4. EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT VOWS TO IMPOSE SHARIA LAW: Bible prophecy warns Egypt of a “cruel master” in the last days

    In a speech that the Muslim Brotherhood senior leader turned new President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi gave in Cairo on May 13, 2012 in which he declared: “The Koran is our constitution. The Prophet Muhammad is our leader. Jihad is our path. And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.”

    Then, Morsi proclaims “This nation will enjoy blessing and revival only through the Islamic sharia [law].” He adds: “I take an oath before Allah and before you all that regardless of the actual text [of the current Egyptian constitution], Allah willing, the text will truly reflect sharia law, as will be agreed upon by the Egyptian people, by the Islamic scholars, and by legal and constitutional experts. Rejoice and rest assured that these people will not accept a text that does not reflect the true meaning of the Islamic sharia as a text to be implemented and as a platform. The people will not agree to anything else.”

  5. Can’t wait for that PITN material to air. Excited about Watchers 4. 🙂

    Speaking of wild weather patterns: Here where I’m at in Western Ohio it’s going to be a legit 100 degrees tomorrow. We’re getting a taste of the summers they usually have down in the southwest and southern USA like OU, Texas, and New Mexico. Not fun. I’m t thinking maybe I need to move to the North Pole. 😉

    Praying for all the folks affected by those wildfires in CO and other places, too! Lots going on. Egypt is going exactly how I think we all knew it was going to go. Keep praying!

    • I no Eric W I can’t wait either for the PITN material to air on L.A. Wacther’s 4 i have all 3 latest watcher’s series. I also just received my PITN magazine today. I love there ministry. For anyone who wants to go off the deep end in the latter times study PITN is the number 1 best resource to go for books. I been ordering from them for the past five years and just lately been ordering up on some fascinating books like Peterus Rom anus, and just got The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus book and it’s thick but worth the buy, a little pricey. also I just wanted to say it’s interesting that the article that L.A said yesterday about the Intel of Israel attacking Iran either in July or September,This is interesting because in July it’s the ninth of’ Av, and in September we supposedly have another earthquake watch for the 188 day cycle and it dose say in the Bible there will be a great shaking in the land before war.

    • It’s at Prophecy in the news web site. You will like the book I’m on chapter 13. Hope this helps Binny you will get a lot of in sight from this book.

    • LOL! There is a lot of that ‘anus’ stuff all over the world these days!hehehe

      All joking aside(for now), Tom Horn is a great author and teacher. I am thankful for men and women who are wise in the Word for sharing their long sought after knowledge. Can hardly wait for my ‘Watchers 4’ DVD.

    • I agree with you Jeremiah. I owe PITN for introducing me to a lot of great teachers that have blessed my life like brother LA here. 🙂 I don’t have enough words to describe the impact and blessing that ministry has been for my family and I here. Petraus Romanus is an AMAZING book. Definitely something that merits many re-reads. Lots going on there. We also got that Josephus book as soon as we saw that daily update where poor Gary muscled that huge tome over his shoulder with one arm. I’m going to be amazed if this summer comes and goes without incident to say nothing about if all of 2012 goes out. It’s just too volatile out in the Middle East. You even have Turkey starting to get annoyed with Syria and talking about retaliation for those planes being shot at. Something new every day!

  6. 1 Mountain of Israel = Mt. of Olives … Jesus touches down, splits the mountain, probably the temple mount, and floods a major portion of anti-christ controlled Jerusalem.

    I challenge you all to find other instances.

    • Other instances? Not sure what you mean but I’ll take a stab at it.

      Isaiah 63:1-6…Who is this who comes from Edom, with garments of glowing colors from Bozrah, this One who is majestic in His apparel, marching in the greaatness of His strength? “It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.” Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like the one who treads in the wine press? “I have trodden the wine through alone, and from the peoples there was no man with Me. I also trod them in My anger and trampled them in my wrath; and their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, and I stained all My raiment. “For the day of vengeance was in My heart, and My year of redemption has come. “I looked, and there was no one to help, and I was astonished and there was no one to uphold; so My own arm brought salvation to Me, and My wrath upheld Me. “I trod down the peoples in My anger and made them drunk in My wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

      Revelation 19:13…He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

    • Daniel,

      You’ve definitely got the right idea. I believe prophecy is even more specific and we can tie what’s coming to the actual mountains of Israel.


  7. “Will a Total Economic Collapse Occur in September – October?”

    St.Louis Police Officer says, “We’ve been told to be ready in October.”

    Over the past 48 hours we’ve stumbled across three separate pieces of information, all predicting essentially the exact same thing regarding a fall 2012 economic collapse. It’s information I want to pass on.

    After Alex Jones announced that he only wanted to take calls from members of the military or police. A man identifying himself as a police officer named ‘Jim’ called in to report some startling information.
    “We have been told that in October we need to be prepared for an event that will require us to use air and ground support, in conjunction with the military here.”

    During the call Jim comes across as passionate, sincere and very shaken by the information he tries to share. After the commercial break, Jim gets choked up as he tries to convey his appreciation for what Alex Jones has tried to do in terms of waking people up in the effort to save the Republic from the clutches of the forces seeking to destroy it. Now, nearly in tears, Jim concludes by saying “This country’s dead Alex. It’s gone” before unexpectedly hanging up.

    • Investment experts at Deutsche Bank now feel that a collapse of the common currency is “a very likely scenario.” German companies are preparing themselves for the possibility that their business contacts in Madrid and Barcelona could soon be paying with pesetas again. And in Italy, former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is thinking of running a new election campaign, possibly this year, on a return-to-the-lira platform

    • Richard, I have heard the same exact thing concerning October from family and neighbors who are in the law enforcement community. From a Security Trainer,Level 1 for Homeland Security, a Federal Marshall and several local Sheriff Deputies. They have been vigilant in preparing for the safety of their families also, even more than usual.

    • Is the world about to repeat the economic catastrophe of 1931?

      A growing chorus of economists of all stripes thinks so.

      “Suddenly normally calm economists are talking about 1931, the year everything fell apart,” writes Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman in the New York Times.

      “The parallels between Europe in the 1930s and Europe today are stark, striking, and increasingly frightening, write Bradford DeLong and Barry Eichengreen in the new preface to Charles Kindleberger, The World in Depression 1929-1939.

      “We see unemployment, youth unemployment especially, soaring to unprecedented heights. Financial instability and distress are widespread. There is growing political support for extremist parties of the far left and right.”

  8. 65 percent of Americans say Obama better suited to handle alien invasion than Romney

    In the event that Bill Pullman isn’t available, two-thirds of respondents to a new survey say that President Barack Obama would be better suited to handle an alien invasion than presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

    “We wanted the pulse on people’s opinions,” said Brad Dancer, senior vice president of research and digital media for National Geographic, who conducted the survey for the new series “Chasing UFOs.” “We wanted to get a sense of how Americans view UFOs, what people believe and how mainstream pop culture may or may not be playing into their opinions on it.”

    Nearly 65 percent of respondents said Obama would be better suited to handle a theoretical alien invasion than Romney.

    In fact, Obama trumped Romney across the board, winning a majority of support from women (68 percent), men (61 percent) and those aged 18 to 64 (68 percent).

    Romney’s strongest bracket was with senior citizens, where he split the vote with Obama at 50 percent each.

    During a May visit to the White House by the actor Will Smith and his family, Obama was quizzed by Smith’s 13-year-old son, Jaden, about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. In an interview with the BBC, Smith recounted Obama’s reaction to his son:

    “OK, I can neither confirm or deny the existence of extraterrestrials,” Obama reportedly said from the White House Situation Room. “But I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting, and if there would have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.”

  9. “Food For thought,”
    What if not to go against what L.A is saying that Israel will attack in July or September. What if this is a massive build up in the middle east and with all this natural disaster’s that are a curing around the world is just a build up to the Jewish feast of rosh hashana, and God un veiling the Vail for the true believers who study his word? To me it seems that a lot more has to happen before the break out of WWIII, just like all the previous wars. Like WWI and WWII, but we may see a little skirmish. It seems possible that this war could break out during the Rosh Hashana Israel’s Jewish Feast, because we’ve been hearing around the World during December and through March, the sounding of trumpets and then after the Month of March they seem to stop sounding and there’s no trumpet sounds. Also it dose say in the Bible that don’t let your flight be during the winter time, and also the sounding of Trumpet signifies the next event’s to take place , so to me it seems logical that it could happen right before or on the feast of trumpet’s. Just like what J.R Church had mention before that the Rapture could happen before or on the Tribulation which would make more sense in light of the Tribulation being exactly 7 years. In the light of this thinking to me it seems possible especially when Obama said to Put tin while the mike was on “I’ll have more flexibly after my election”, could have God maybe have given us a sign that something could happen during the Jewish Feast of Trumpet’s? Because remember when a President gets reelected it’s usual after the new year and his in inauguration. Also I’m not trying to set the date for the Rapture either cause no man knows the day nor the hour but we shall no the season’s keep in mind(season’s) but to me it just seems that everything is lining up to what it’s going to be, and also it seems like it’s a slow build up before the time bomb goes off. But in reality no one’s exactly what will happen we just have to wait to see what God’s going to do. this is why I love to study his word, cause we live in exciting times God bless.

    • Thank you Chad Schafer but i know all about the feast and how they fit in, I got Mark Blitzes Feast DVD. It’s an amazing DVD and he throws in an extra DVD called linking the Messiah to the eclipses. You should pick this up. This is why I have been keeping an eye on what feast we are in cause so much happens around the world when certain feast come up. I would like to hear from any one else about post. By the way thanks again.

    • Mark Biltz is speaking at Maranatha Chapel tonight. 7:30 Pacific if you want to Live Stream it. It’s supposed to be an interesting topic. To find Maranatha Chapel it’s the name plus dot org.

    • It will be interesting to see how things progress from where we are today. It really does seem that the build up toward war has been happening in that region since last year to the point where we are at now. They are going to go at it soon. Matter of fact, look for news coming in from outside the U.S. and you will see that we are not getting the half of it. With such a closed media it can be difficult to follow just how fast things are now progressing. The closer we get toward the return of Christ, the faster these things all happen. Think of prophecy as being cyclical…everytime it comes back around you learn more about the ultimate fulfillment(which is the revelation of Jesus). It gains momentum which creates greater velocity. The greater the velocity, the quicker you get to the target. That is why so many of the characters in the bible are types and shadows of Jesus, Satan, Antichrist, false prophet, the church. Just one example of this would be David vs. Goliath as forshadowing the entime battle between Jesus and the Antichrist . It’s like the story keeps getting played out over and over again with different players giving different details. Mark Biltz should have some interesting teaching similar to this example on his website. I know he has an interesting midrash on Solomon(who is a shadow or type of Antichrist)…I should say backslidden Solomon is one of the greatest types of Antichrist next to King Herod. Just in the fact that we see Solomon as a major type of Jesus in scripture shows how in his backslidden state he is a major type of Antichrist, as the Antichrist will come immitating Christ. Things can change so rapidly anymore that we sure can expect the unexpected.

    • Good to know. I believe that if we are to know any kind of timing we have to stick to God’s calender. The adversary also has a calender. Sticking to God’s calender and knowing His appointed times will help us when other things fail

    • Wow once again I right a comment and a food for thought and people like to shoot me down just because I mention the Rapture possibilities. I think I’m done writing on this blog. Like I said I’m not setting dates here I never do. I don’t no why people go around the Rapture theory and they them selves say I can’t wait for it to happen but then when the topic comes up every one avoids. Lol

    • Jeremiah…slow down holmes. I’m not not shooting you down. I love to talk about the rapture and rapture positions. I value what you have to say…I’ll talk about anything. I find the subject of the blood moons, and the feast dates fascinating, especially given that things have a tendancy to happen at those times. I definately think that there is something going on with the tetrad of blood moons. There are different idea’s based on how different folks believe about the timing of the rapture. As far as what’s going on in the middle east right now, you could very well be right about it being a slow build up. The way that I’m kinda looking at it is this…for a year now, several countries have been “showing their muscles” so to speak, kind of like a bunch of guys hanging around for a fist fight and puffing their chests out walking around in front of everybody…once someone throws the first blow…it’s on like donkey kong! I wouldn’t expect that there will be much “tit for tat” going on. I would think, and maybe it’s just me, but I would think that many of the major players would want this to start before the U.S. election. To me it just makes sense but I also could be very wrong. One thing that I solidly believe however is that the rapture will not happen until the Antichrist is reavealed to the faithful church. I think that ppl avoid even talking in debth about the rapture because they just don’t really know how to have a back and forth with someone who might not see it like they do…I don’t have this problem because the timing of the rapture is a 2ndary issue…an important issue but a 2ndary issue non the less. Iron sharpens iron right bro?

    • Jeremiah,
      I hope that you keep posting your comments. I am just a ‘little sprout’ on the tree of life, but I have learned so much from ALL of you on this blog. I am hungry for more knowledge of the truth, and I have found it here, backed up by scripture. One thing we all know is, that what must happen, will happen…in God’s own time. We must remain ready at all times for His return, and bring as many souls with us to the Lord.
      So you guys keep on shaking the tree and unfurl your leaves! I can’t wait to meet my brothers and sisters in Christ face to face! What a great day that will be!

  10. Luke.21

    [25] And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

  11. Yer “good friend” Bob Ulrich, has mentioned on more than one occasion that his favorite L.A. Marzulli story is the one you tell, “3 seconds to a baptism”, my title not his. You’ve told that story many times about getting ready for a shower and the 3 second vision giving you just before getting wet, I always thought that it would make a wonderful short video 3 to 5 minutes to unpack it. Any how, like yer friend Bob, it is my favorite L.A.M. story too. A very powerful story, if you ever make such a video I’d like to clone it and put it on my channel, time being short like it is .
    Happy Trails and Best to you & yours.
    ps. Best = Grace.

  12. In 2010 the Rockefeller Foundation published a document entitled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development” outlines a scenario which results in the death of 13,000 during the 2012 Olympics.

    Why would one of the worlds most powerful families and foundations write such a scenario unless they were part of the planning?

    Today Infowars published the following article “Correlation?”

    An undercover journalist going by the pseudonym ‘Lee Hazledean’ has blown the whistle on astounding revelations about how he infiltrated the G4S – the company responsible for security at the London Olympics – and discovered shocking plans for the evacuation of London, 200,000 ‘casket linings’ being on standby, along with botched security procedures that leave the Games wide open to attack.

    Hazledean noted how G4S leaders saw the public as “the scum of the earth” and also told their employees that the police had no authority over them. He also related how one of the leaders told him that an event after the Olympics would be a “defining moment” for London but when pressed, refused to divulge what she meant.

    • The fact the games open on July 27 which is the 9 of Av is pretty significant all by itself. Religious Jews from the Israeli teams wont even be able to participate in the opening ceremonies.
      I doubt there will be disclosure, though its possible. I’m expecting war first, most likely involving nukiexs or chemical, then they will show up to “save us” from our stupid humaness, cuz you know, they made us from manipulated dna. Blah blah blah. I really hope we are gone by then cuz I dont want to deal with that.
      Well whatever is going to happen, its not much longer so stay prayed up. I think we might get a repeat of the 72 olympics (i think it was 72?) When part of the Israeli team were held as hostages. Shiver 😦

    • It looks like Tisha b’Av is on July 28 (so they should be able to go to the ceremony), but the proximity of the start of competition of the Olympics with a day of fasting that commemerates the destruction of the temple is startling to say the least. Couple that with how the 2012 logo spelled out the word ‘Zion’ and its just weird.

      Many things are intertwining so I wouldn’t be surprised if something significant happens. Keep looking up.

    • Hopeful_Watcher: I believe, if I am not mistaken, that the 9th of Av starts at sundown the day before, which would be Friday, 7/27 on our gentile calendars. The opening ceremonies commence at 11:00 pm the evening of 7/27/12 (Jerusalem time,) so Ally is correct in her line of thinking. The ceremony begins with the Queen of England being greeted by the head of the IOC, Jacques Brogge. (I have long been interested in the fact that these Olympics are being hosted in the homeland of Prince William, who just turned 30 on 6/21, by the way. There are folks who believe is a candidate for the Antichrist because of his Merovingian bloodline, etc….I’m sure he will be prominently portrayed by her side.)

  13. Be still and know that I am God~


    the days are coming when I will show My Strength

    on the mountains of Israel~

    Selah and Amen LA!
    Thanks…it really is the Word to and for so much!!!

    • Step two, they will bankrupt the insurance companies who don’t have a prayer when they are supposed to maintain profitibility along side a tax payer subsidized entity. The presidential election is our last stand against 100% socialism with a chance to repeal the law. Without it all the last pieces fall into place. God help us all.

  14. Russia will continue to consolidate the Gog/Magog alliance against the forces of the West (Tarshish, young lions thereof) and their Sunni allies (Sheba and Dedan) as they prepare to clash on the mountains (borders) of Israel. While assembled however they will turn their attention of focus upon Israel, and at that time the fury of the Lord God will be unleashed upon all parties!
