Psalm 83 – Is It about to Happen?

26 signs headerIn 2014 I wrote a 4 part series of articles titled 26 Signs on the Lord’s Soon Return.

Many Bible scholars have identified Gog with Russia, even before Russia ever became a political power. If this is true, and I believe it is, Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark Continue reading
