Rosh On Fire

The US and Russia are at war. The fact that there are no aircraft carriers or helicopter gunships involved should not fool you. What is happening in Kiev is war, and Vladimir Putin – the president of Russia – knows it.

Putin’s problem right now is that his hands have been tied by the Winter Olympics in Sochi. But, the last day of the Olympics is in two days, on the 23rd. When you wake up on the morning of the 24th, will you see Russian troops in the Ukraine?

Maybe yes. Maybe no. But, that is a very good question. A very good question, indeed.

Rosh On Fire

But, let’s ask a more important question first.

Why is this important to us?

Well, as I wrote last month, the Ukraine is mentioned in the Bible – as a part of the army of Gog and Magog. In Hebrew, the Ukraine is referred to as Rosh. In Ukrainian: Rus.

Wikipedia has an interesting article that talks about the Rus name, and indicates that the earliest written documents refer to the Ukrainians as… Rhos.

Curiouser and curiouser.

So, why isn’t the Ukraine called Rus?

Well, until the 19th century, they WERE called Rus. But, they lost their ideological battle with their stronger neighbor to the north… and, well… I strongly suspect that being called the Ukraine is preferable to being tortured to death. (But, that’s just me.)

Here’s an interesting article on the subject from Ukrainian Week:

Where Did “Ukraine” Come From?

For more history on Kievan-Rus, Wikipedia has an interesting article:

Kievan Rus

And, if that’s not enough history for you, here’s this:

The Rus People

To lighten up the discussion a little and give you more historical background, here’s John Green and Crash Course:

Russia, the Kievan Rus, and the Mongols: Crash Course World History #20


Back to the Important Question

Okay, I can see that you’ve had enough, so let’s pull this back to the question of why this is important to us. Remember that Gog and Magog cannot happen without Rosh, and the US and Europe would like to pull Rosh away from Gog and Magog. (Although, they do NOT see this with a Biblical perspective.)

This is a bloody struggle that has been going on for more than ten years, and the result will be a harsher, more militarized Russia and Ukraine. The US and Europe are going to lose this struggle and the results will be catastrophic and will be another incentive for Russia’s move southwards.

Again, why is this important to us?

You mean, besides the importance of the Bible and Biblical prophecy?

This puts YOU in danger. Remember this verse in Ezekiel:

And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.Ezekiel 39:6

That sounds like a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from a Z-Class Solar Flare. If you’ve been reading my articles, you’ve ‘heard’ me talk about an EMP attack. You DO NOT want to be caught in such a situation.

Get OUT of the Northern Hemisphere

The question is this:

Who are ‘them’ that dwell carelessly in the isles?

I believe this to be North America and Europe. It would take a very long CME for this to happen, because the Earth would need to rotate so that Russia, Europe and then North America would be facing the Sun. However, we know that ‘Solar Storms’ can last five hours, and that is more than enough time.

Do you want to be caught in such an event?

I don’t, which is one of the reasons why I recommend sitting on the OTHER side of the planet in East Asia, or Southeast Asia when Ezekiel 39 begins to be fulfilled. I am NOT in Taiwan for this reason, but this issue is certainly another argument for me to stay. (We’ll see how the Lord directs my wife and I.) The other place to go is the Southern Hemisphere.

There are quite a few reasons to go there already, so think of this as another one. The worst of the radiation from Fukushima is being contained in the Northern Hemisphere. The worst of the current effects of GeoEngineering is contained in the Northern Hemisphere. The worst of the current insanity plaguing the world seems to be focused there.

So think about it.

Avoid the fire that is going to come down on them that dwell carelessly in the isles by going to the Southern Hemisphere.

It’s warm down there.

Are you ready for this?

  1. Hi Brother in the Kingdom,
    I have developed many questions over a lifetime on the end-time prophecies and searched the scriptures for myself…with an astonishing discovery. It seems what we will experience in this age is natural disasters, war, rumours of war, persecution, and a thermal nuclear event. Revelation brings it all together and clearly depicts a timeline for the “Armageddon” event only at the end of the millennial reign of Messiah! The time when Lucifer will be released again for a short time……

  2. According to Jeffrey Goodman, a Jewish archaeologist and student of ancient texts who’s also a follower of Jesus, Russia is not Magog. Be like the Bereans and check it out:

    If this is true, then most prophecy teachers need to change their stance on Russia, especially since Russia is now more Biblical than the US! See Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S.

    • Hi Ted,

      We have a problem with your source. Jeffrey Goodman is the guy who wrote ‘Psychic Archeology’. I would have trouble accepting someone like that as a source, unless they repudiated their book.

      I’ve heard the theories that point to Turkey as Gog/Magog. They are interesting theories, but they do not make sense at the moment. I would certainly need to see more evidence than has been raised.

      Furthermore, Russia isn’t as ‘Godly’ as they appear, and they have a far more strategic interest in the region than Turkey seems to have at the moment. We’ll see what happens.

      Having said all that, I am not married to the ‘Russia is Gog’ theory. If someone can clearly show me hard evidence that Turkey is Gog, I’m willing to listen. And, please do not throw massive links at me, I just do not have the time to wade through them all. Short, to the point and clearly worded evidence is what I need.

      In the end (which we are close to) we’ll see it coming and understand.

      Thanks for that thought-provoking comment, Ted.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. I used to live in a warn climate,THEN one day, some one said HERE type this into the internet,IT was a direct code ,to see what the HUBBLE space telescope was looking at,RIGHT on the computer screen,WE watched,and watched,and watched,and all we saw was a big fuzzy red ball at first,then the angle of the cameras changed and started looking around,THEN we were told its coming this way and will roll earth unside down when it goes by,THAT explained EVERYTHING that we saw going on in the world,THEY don’t care if they kill everyone,ITS JUST SPORT TO THEM,when it comes up under us,the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE will be barbequed,and as it passes the planet will follow it around,ANY IDEA,HOW MUCH DANGER everyones in, who are in the southern hemisphere,I moved to he highest mountains in north america,THE ROCKIES,and I still might not be far enough from the coasts,HOW ABOUT YOU…………..

    • Hey Arizona,

      Well, if I were to choose to stay in North America, I’d choose the Rockies too. Flathead Valley sounds like a really good idea.

      James Wesley Rawles talks about ‘The American Redoubt’ on his site His article on the subject is here:

      That area might be the safest place in North America, or even the Northern Hemisphere. (Or, if you’re right, the planet.)

      May the Lord direct us to the right place at the right time, that we might serve Him well.

      • Part 4/Last

        Rev 17:16-17
        16 The beast (Anti-Christ) and the ten horns (Kings alligned with AC) you saw will hate the prostitute (Babylon). They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. (Nuclear Holocaust) 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose (Jer 50:45, Jer 51:29), by agreeing to hand over to the beast (AC Empire) their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled.

        The AC is The King of the Medes (Persia/Iran) whom “Receives Athority from G-d” for one hour to accomplish G-ds Purpose/Will which is the destruction of “Sex, Drugs and Rock-N-Roll /Abortion” – the WHORE/HARLOT Babylon!!!!

        America’s Occultic days are numbered!!!

        • Hi MagenD,

          It is up for debate as to whether the US is Babylon the Great or whether it is the Vatican. I see the arguments for both and am happy to avoid BOTH dangers by leaving the US. However, some are not so lucky.

          Furthermore, Revelation refers to The Great Whore as a city – in a wilderness. What city is this? New York? Is America a wilderness? Will she become a wilderness?

          If you search for the word ‘wilderness’ in the Bible, you will find that ‘The Wilderness’ will protect God’s people from the dragon (Rev 12). Is this the same ‘wilderness’?

          Such as, ‘the Rockies’? Montana?

          Although, I completely agree that America’s Occultic days are numbered.

          We must all earnestly and prayerfully seek the Lord’s direction. Each of us will be led according to his/her calling.

          Thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about that, MagenD.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

          • Not at all!!! Thank you for the response!
            I fail to see anywhere in Revelation (Or otherwise) where she is refered to as a city in the Wilderness!
            She’s Called:
            1. The Great City that rules over the Kings of the earth. (17:18)
            2. Oh Great City of Power! (18:10)
            3. City Adorned with Fine Linen, Precious Stones and Pearls (18:16)
            4. City of Merchants (Center of World Trade) (18:19)

            No “City of the Wilderness”.
            What Bible are you using?!
            The Vatican is out! To many verses DON’T fit!!! Like those above!!!
            Me thinks America’s Occultic Veil is being lifted just as prophesied in Is 47 – just prior to her destruction. There seems also to be confusion between the Anti-Christ (Who is “The Assyrian”) and the “King of Babylon” – whose hands will go limp and whose knees will buckle when Babylon is Surprisingly and Relentlessly Attacked. (2 Places in Jeremiah 50:43 and 51:31-32).
            The Assyrian (AC) is the Rod of G-ds Anger who Wields the Club of His Wrath (Is 10:5) – whom G-d uses to destroy Babylon.

          • Hi MagenD,

            I was combining several references into one. In Revelation 17, John is taken out into the wilderness where he sees the woman sit on a scarlet colored beast.

            I also agree that it is extremely difficult to fit the Vatican into this. And, I strongly lean towards your interpretation. Having said that, I have been hearing some interesting evidence that the Vatican has more power than you and I believe. Take a look at some of the things that Karen Hudes says, as well as others who speak of the Jesuits.

            We’ll see what happens, MagenD.

            Yours in Christ,

  4. Great site. Love the set up, easy to navigate and a wealth of information. I just discovered your website and You Tube Channel. Always listening to Steve Quayle. His books are phenomenal.

    Glad to see another site that is not anti-Semitic. I see a progression among many so called “Christians” that make very anti-Semitic remarks now on other sites and agree this is playing into satan’s new world order.

    • Hi Claudia,

      Thank you.

      It grieves me to see that so many have chosen the path of hatred. I know that God will protect Israel and her people, but those who have chosen to resist God’s plan… well, it will go badly for them, and I would love to help them avoid God’s judgment.

      Judgment ALWAYS comes first to the House of God – 1 Peter 4:17

      I’m glad to have you as a reader, Claudia.

      Yours in Christ,

  5. Hey, I enjoyed your article and history lesson.

    I just wanted to add a couple of points onto your argument for the hemispheres.

    Zechariah 6:2-7

    Cross reference that with Rev 6 and one might conclude that:
    The economy will crash affecting the northern hemisphere the most, then comes the conquering (probably Iranians and Russians to America) Then for the southern hemisphere, the grisled and bay horse (pale horse) will do it’s damage.

    rev 6:8

    So we could infer that the southern hemisphere is going to deal with people killing one another (civil wars), hunger, death and attack from animals.

    • Hi Tim,

      Excellent point. And, you may be right in that the Pale Horse goes south. And, this may have already begun in Africa with the terrible (man-caused) turmoil over recent decades – and, in Venezuela and Argentina. We will see.

      Remember that our challenge is to fit what we see happening in the world with what the Bible says. We will not always know for sure. We may be trading one danger for another – hopefully lesser – danger. This is why you should always seek the Lord’s direction.

      One thing is for certain. North America will be a bad place to be. Are you sure that you want to ‘stick it out’ there?

      Thank you for that point, Tim.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. Hello John,

    The downside to an EMP event is that you will be knocked back technologically about 100 years. This would be life threatening if you aren’t prepared…but it could be life lengthening if you are prepared. I believe there is an upside! It would throw a huge monkey wrench into the high tech security state…making it very difficult for a totalitarian government to track, control and eventually exterminate millions or billions of people.

    • Hey Michael Haller,

      I hadn’t quite thought of that angle.

      Destroying the technological infrastructure may be the Lord’s way of protecting those who have prepared. Hmmmm… interesting. I will be thinking about this. I really will.

      Thank you, Michael!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  7. John,

    Do you have any insight into the recent treaty developments between Israel and the Palestinians?
    Both Obama and Kerry have pounded their fists on podiums declaring in their own words that this will be the FINAL peace arrangement between Israel and the Palestinians. There’s been tremendous pressure exerted upon Netanyahu from the American government and the international community at large to get this peace treaty done.

    Pastor Paul ‘Whaaaa…..are you serious?!’ Begley has been following this developing story since July, 2013. He has mentioned that there has been discussions between the geopolitical players involved that Israel will cede 90% of the West Bank, all of Gaza and East Jerusalem to the Palestinians for the creation of a Palestinian state. Israel will be guaranteed “peace and safety” and be permitted to rebuild their Jewish Temple in the northern sector of the temple mount. See Revelation 11:1-2.

    This final treaty is to be completed this year in April. This also coincides with the first of four blood moons on Pesach Seder (Passover), April 15th.

    Your thoughts?

    Uri W.

    • Hi Uri Weiss,

      I’ve been through several of these treaties before while living in Jerusalem, and they’ve ALL crashed and burned. And, I think that this one will too. The Israeli side ALWAYS caves in to US pressure and makes all the promises that they are forced to make, and the Palestinians ALWAYS rescue the Israeli side from having to go through with the treaty.

      (The Palestinians are actually quite unintentionally Zionist.)

      One thing that I think that we can all rest on is that there IS a God, and He loves Jerusalem more than any other place on Earth. No one can change that. So, if such a peace treaty goes through… expect ‘fireworks’.

      But again, I am highly doubtful. We’ve been here before – many times.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
