Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law last week a measure punishing any kind of religious evangelization outside of churches, which some observers have called one of the most restrictive move in “post-Soviet history.”

Moving Towards Ezekiel 38-39

“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:”
Ezekiel 38:2-5

ITD Editor's Note about the words: Gog, Magog and Persia

Many Bible teachers believe that Gog is the leader of the Russia alliance in the latter days.
Many Bible teachers believe that Magog, the descendant of Japheth, is identified as the Russian coalition in the latter days.
Persia in concert with Adolf Hitler, changed its name to Iran (Aryan Land) in May of 1935.
Russia the leader, of a coalition which is made up of Iran, Syria, Hosbollah and Hamas.
Three of that four have vowed to destroy Israel and every Jew in the world.
More of Hitler’s Satanic legacy.
Russia is the supplier of the weapons that all in coalition use as they press towards their objective, Israel.

“This new situation resembles the Soviet Union in 1929. At that time confession of faith was permitted only in church,” Hannu Haukka, president of Great Commission Media Ministries, told National Religious Broadcasters, according to Breitbart News. “Practically speaking, we are back in the same situation. These anti-terrorist laws are some of the most restrictive laws in post-Soviet history.”

The law, which is supposed to be aimed against the spread of terrorism and extremism, has also been approved by the Russian Parliament’s upper chamber. The move blocks the sharing of faith in any place that is not a government-sanctioned house of worship.

Charisma News reported that thousands of churches in Russia are coming together in prayer and fasting against the move, based on information shared by Haukka.

“The church is appalled at the news of the new law. About 7,000 evangelical/protestant churches are in fasting and prayer at the moment over the news,” Haukka said.

The Christian Post reported earlier this month that several Christian groups in Russia have already spoken out against the draconian measures, with the Seventh-day Adventist’s Moscow-based Euro-Asia Division stating that it is nearly “impossible” for religious believers to comply with the requirements.

    The Scythians were Iranian nomads who migrated to southern Russia 800 BC. They were barbarians who could eat and sleep in the saddle on a horse. A photograph of Putin without a shirt on horseback was circulated through the press a few years ago. Sort of see a strong connection there. Point being these facts sure do lend clarity to idea that Russia is Gog and Magog.

    It stands to reason if Russia will attack Israel, such a small and insignificant country by comparison, that they would also attack Christianity. In Ezekiel 38 God is clearly giving them a written warning of judgement. It is bizarre to see people “think” they are in charge, as in Isaiah 47:10.

    I have to ask, how is Gog and Magog so threatened by Christian evangelism and the land of Israel?
