There are just 18 days until the Opening Ceremonies of the Sochi Olympics. Those ceremonies represent the biggest target for any terrorist attack, and the Chechen Islamic rebels have promised a ‘surprise package’ for everyone who goes to the Olympics. And, it seems that some pretty powerful figures have decided that their schedules are too full to attend the games.
Isn’t that interesting?
To me, the question isn’t whether there will be terrorism at the Sochi Olympics. No, the big question revolves around what Russia will do in response to terrorism at Sochi. And, I believe that it will center on the hooks of Ezekiel 38.

Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has invested a tremendous amount of personal and national prestige in the success of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Putin has flooded Sochi with tens of thousands of elite security personnel. And, with a price tag of $50 billion, these Olympics will be the most expensive in the history of the world. And, the Chechens have vowed to stop these games and blacken the eye of Russia.
And, if the Chechens succeed in stopping the Winter Olympics with a massive terrorist attack, who will Russia blame?
Do you remember what he did on Tuesday, July 30 of last year?
He shoved a finger in the face of Vladimir Putin and threatened him with Chechen terrorism at the Sochi Olympics – if Putin didn’t back off on his support for the Assad regime in Syria. Putin hasn’t backed off… so… you can expect terrorism at Sochi. And, you can expect a Russian response. The only question is what that response will be.
Or, is there really a question about the Russian response to terrorism at the Sochi Olympics?
How about THIS response:
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 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: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. – Ezekiel 38:1-7
God said to the prophet Ezekiel that He would but hooks in the jaws of Gog and bring him down to attack Israel and the Middle East. And, God used the plural – hooks.
Terrorism at the Sochi Olympics would be a HUGE hook in the jaw of Gog, and would be just one of many hooks already drawing Russia southwards into the Middle East.
Yes, I know that Ezekiel 38 describes an attack on Israel, not Saudi Arabia. But, remember that Israel is the single largest – and only – strategic power in the Middle East. If the Russians want to take out Saudi Arabia, they will need to attack Israel first. Oh, and consider who is responsible for the hooks in the jaw of Gog. If one of those hooks is a major terrorist attack at Sochi, there is no WAY that the Russians will be able to stop it.
You can’t fight against God.
The opening ceremonies start at 11 a.m. EST on February 7th. Expect the Saudi-backed Chechens to go for gold on that Friday.
