Is the end of times mentioned in revelation going to happen soon?

  • The prophesies are coming true.

    According to the Bible, there will come a time when Russia, in alliance with several other countries, will amass a huge army against Israel, with a view to plunder the Jews’ land. The nations aligned with Russia for this military endeavor are Persia (modern-day Iran), Put (modern-day Sudan), Cush (modern-day Libya), Gomer (part of modern-day Turkey), and Beth Togarmah (another portion of modern-day Turkey or possibly Syria). Most of these nations are currently militant Islamic states with an express hatred of Israel. Ezekiel says that, when the aggressors move against Israel, a few other nations (“Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish”) will remonstrate, as will “all her villages”—possibly colonies. Sheba and Dedan are associated with areas of northern Africa. Tarshish could be a reference to Spain (which colonized much of South America), Britain (which colonized the United States), or somewhere in eastern Africa.

    Ezekiel 38:1-10 . . .

    "Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
    ‘Son of man, set your face against Gog (a powerful leader),
    of the land of Magog (translated 'Scythia' in Greek ... The area of modern day RUSSIA),
    the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, (Meshech and Tubal are in and around TURKEY)
    and prophesy against him, and say,
    Thus says the Lord GOD:
    ‘Behold, I am against you, O Gog (a powerful human or dark-angelic leader behind Russia),
    the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. (Turkey)
    I will turn you around,
    put hooks into your jaws (Israel's new gas fields, a mutual defense treaty, or UN effort?)
    and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed,
    a great company with bucklers and shields,
    all of them handling swords (weapons). (The Russian army will march again)
    Persia (IRAN), (Iran is listed first, meaning it will be the 'lead' ally)
    Ethiopia (Sudan ..."Cush"), and Libya (northern Africa) are with them,
    all of them with shield and helmet.
    Gomer and all its troops; (Germany-France, eastern Europe, or "Galatia"- Turkey)
    the house of Togarmah (Armenia) from the far north and all its troops -
    many people are with you. (NATO member Turkey will join this coalition)
    Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you;
    and be a guard for them. (Russia will act as a "guard" ... And supplier of weapons)
    After many days you will be visited. (Meaning, this would happen far from Ezekiel's time)
    In the LATTER YEARS you (Russia-Iran-Turkey)
    will come into the land of those brought back from the sword (Israel!)
    and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel,
    which had long been desolate (this war will take place after Israel became a nation in 1948)
    they (the children of Israel) were brought OUT of the nations,
    and now all of them dwell safely.
    You will ascend, coming like a storm,
    covering the land (of Israel) like a cloud,
    you and all your troops and many peoples with you."

  • They will never happen

    The prophecies in the book of Revelations weren't prophecies for our time. They have nothing to do with the literal end of the world. It's a description of the events surrounding the destruction of the Second Temple in Judaism by Rome, and a consolation to the Jews and followers of Christ. It's stating that God will have his revenge on ROME for destroying the temple and much of Jerusalem.
