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 640: aporia, ap-or-ee´-a; from the same as 639; a (state of) quandary: — perplexity.
; the sea and the waves roaring; — Luke 21:25

Editor’s Note: Have you noticed that the Scripture state, all of these nations fall, meet destruction,  within the borders of Israel.

Iran, Turkey, and Russia are defeated and destroyed at the battle of Gog and Magog.

China invades Armegdom and is destroyed at the coming of Jesus to judge the world in righteousness.

These all hate Western Civilization and, of course, the United States.

Western Civilization is Judeo Christian, while the nations mentioned are heathens, and they rage while imagining a vain thing.

Authoritarian regimes throughout the world are pushing narratives that appear to gloat over and celebrate that chaos unfolding in the United States. On Monday, Iran’s media pushed stories that highlighted the “collapse,” while quoting Russian sources portraying that the US is flailing about as its world order comes crashing down. The US became the world’s most powerful country, a global hegemonic superpower after the Soviet Union and its client states fell apart in 1989. However, Russia, China, Iran, and increasingly Turkey have all awaited the period when the world would become multi-polar again. They have sought to work more closely together, and they have sat frequently at global forums that the US does not attend.

To coordinate efforts against the US, these countries all have state media that is well funded, such as RT, TRT, Iran’s Tasnim and Fars News, and numerous Chinese media outlets. The policies of these countries are to slowly undermine the US and wait for moments of US weakness to push their agendas.

The leadership in Turkey and Iran view their goal as undermining the US through a more religious lens linked with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Muslim Brotherhood that influences Tehran and Ankara respectively. Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sought to capitalize on the recent riots in the US, claiming that America is part of an “unjust order” in the world. 

Iran’s former president made similar comments about the declining US “order.” This is a reference to the concept of the “axis of resistance” in Iran and the defeat of US “arrogance.” Ever since the Islamic Revolution in Iran of 1979, there had been a call for a third way between the US and Soviet Union in the 1980s that would bring about the defeat of Western systems and the rise of political Islam rooted in Tehran and then in Ankara.

Ankara is a nominal US ally, but it has drifted away and signed deals to acquire Russia’s S-400 anti-missile defense system. It seeks to partition Syria with Iran and Russia. Turkey and Iran coordinate in efforts against Israel and both support Hamas. They broadly work together against other US partners, such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, and Egypt.

Now the protests in the US and the COVID-19 crisis have made Washington appear to be declining rapidly. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the US was now having to deal with its police misconduct and said the US compared unfavorably with Russia. “Thank God things that happen in America do not happen in [Russia],” he said, according to Russia’s TASS media. 

Aleksey Pushkov, a senator in Russia’s parliament and an expert on foreign policy, argued on Twitter that the US is crumbling. He said that US withdrawals from Afghanistan and Syria, Turkey ordered the US to leave and attacked US Kurdish allies, which was an example of American decline.

He also tweeted that the US crumbling due to COVID-19 and the inability of the US to help Europe or its allies at the peak of the pandemic. He said America has been on a “hysterical” tirade against China and now faces an internal schism and racial rebellion.

Iran was pleased with Pushkov’s words, writing an article about them at Tasnim as if to affirm the Iranian regime’s own view. Meanwhile, Iran’s IRGC said it was stronger than ever and that it was resisting the “pharaonic, dictatorial, terrorist United States.”

Turkey has mobilized all its state media propaganda resources against the US. TRT’s headlines are directed at bashing the US as part of a state-controlled effort run by Ankara. It has an opinion piece on its homepage about US corporations “looting” black communities, an obvious and ironic title designed to make it appear that it is US businesses looting people, as opposed to protesters doing the looting, thus making it seem like a normal form of resistance. Turkey supports the protests but suppresses dissent at home – just like China, Iran, and Russia. TRT highlights police brutality in the US even though it never critiques police brutality in Turkey.

The goal of Turkey, Iran, China, and Russia during the current US crises is to use it to their advantage to press gains. Turkey has been flooding Libya with weapons and Syrian mercenaries during the crisis. China has pushed up against India in a border dispute. Iran is flexing its muscles at home and sending tankers to Venezuela. Russia has sent warplanes to Libya and Syria.

Meanwhile, all these countries want to leverage the economic crisis of the pandemic to their advantage. Turkey is designing a new fighter jet that Russia’s media heralds as a possible replacement for the F-16. Russia is pushing its defense systems, and Turkey wants to work with Iran, Malaysia, and Pakistan to improve economic relations and expand its role in the Mediterranean.

Concern over the rise of these countries has led to other countries scrambling to counter-balance. Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, the UAE, and France as seeking to counter Turkey’s growing role in the Mediterranean. Globally, US allies are concerned that the chaos in the US, where the US military is now being deployed, could represent a decline of US ability to concentrate abroad. That will mean all those that have been waiting for the US to reduce its footprint will be running to fill the vacuum. 

Already, Russia and Iran are running toward Afghanistan, and Turkey and Russia are sponging up Libya. The race is on, the scramble to grab up properties as the US appears to teeter. From eastern Libya to Afghanistan to Asia and Africa, everywhere the US may appear weak, the adversaries are preparing. The big four – China, Russia, Turkey, and Iran – are poised to exploit and emerge stronger. Where once George Bush Sr. spoke of new world order, now these countries want to bury that US world order amid the chaos. 




  1. While some of the Heathen Nations are the primary countries mentioned here, we seem to ignore that The United States harbors many more heathens than at any other time since the founding of this Country. The Demon-rat-hic party of progressives has no love for the United States, they hate Israel, and more importantly they Hate God! The Rebellion against God is seen everywhere, just to mention a few, universities, the murder of the unborn, while corruption, lust and perversion are rampart even in the so called churches, false gods and false teachers and prophets abound. And many have influence in the White House itself.

    And yes the heathen do rage but remember the entirety of Ps. 2 look to verses 4-9 as Gods attitude toward the raging masses. Then see Gods command to all believers of The Gospel of our Lord and Master Jesus, Gods Messiah!

    Ps 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
    Ps 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
    Ps 2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
    Ps 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
    Ps 2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
    Ps 2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
    Ps 2:7 ¶ I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
    Ps 2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
    Ps 2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
    Ps 2:10 ¶ Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
    Ps 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
    Ps 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

    In closing, I urge all to:
    Prov 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    Ps 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
    Ps 118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
    Ps 125:1 ¶ They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

    Tell your neighbor about Gods Gift of Forgivness of our sins and of Eternal Life through Jesus’ Sacrificial Death on the cross in our place, Jesus Burial, and Jesus Resurrection three days later!

    Shout it from the rooftops and prepare for persecution for you beliefs, stand strong remember we’ve read the book. God Wins! Stay on the winning side!
