Before Russia comes to invade Israel, she -- along with perhaps
North Korea -- will seek to thwart any retaliation by the US.

We are told in Matthew 24: 6-8 that in the Last Days there will be "wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."
The end is not yet for there are 3 and 1/2 more years coming quickly, called the " Great Tribulation".
And this Russian Invasion does indeed herald the coming of the Great Tribulation-- Matthew 24:21.
Time line http://hopetotheend.com/tsar.html please see section called “Daniel Ch. 9”
There still remains another foreign force -- after WW 3 of the Russian Invasion-- that will takeover Israel until the final Battle of Armageddon. That final Battle of Armageddon takes place 3 and 1/2 years after the Magog war of Ezekiel 38 and 39.. It is our belief that the Great Tribulation begins when the abominable army of desolation --- Matthew 24: 15 and Luke 21: 20 -- is actually standing in the holy place (the Temple Mount) in Jerusalem. For now, let us take a closer look at the Russian Invasion of Israel.
SCENE ONE Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39; The Russian Invasion of Israel
Today, 2017, we are on the eve of World War 3.
The Russian - Magog war is told in detail in Ezekiel 38 and 39. In Ezekiel 38:2 , two cities are mentioned :
Principle cities of Russian government:
Meshech (Moscow, European Russia ) and Tubal (Tobolsk. Asian Russia)
Is "Tubal " Tiblisi ? http://www.contenderministries.org/prophecy/gogmagogPF.php
In Ezekiel 38, GOG is the leader of Magog ( Russia ) ; Leader today: Prime Minister Vladimir Putin ( Chief Prince )
Commander-in-Chief of Russian Forces: PM Vladimir Putin; Leader of Russian Military Forces: Sergei Shoigu
The Russian-Confederation Invades Israel Ezekiel
38 + 39; and Rev.
8 + 9 .. ( W W 3 at Mid- Trib )
As we see it:
The Magog War consists of three parts:
A. An attack upon Israel's ally , America :
Ezekiel 38:10,11 "It shall ALSO come to pass, that at the SAME TIME shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
And thou shalt say, "I will go up to the land of unwalled villages ( USA ? ) ; I will go to them that are at rest ( USA ? ) , that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates ( USA ? )
B. Russian-led confederacy comes against Israel, but is defeated upon Israel's Northern mountain. ( Golan area, Mt. Hermon )
C. U.S. attempts retaliatory strikes hopetotheend.com/ch3p3.html
She might not be able to retaliate if North Korea sends an EMP bomb over the USA, and our grids are down.
The Book of Ezekiel was written to show forth the fact that God is God...He is LORD, whether people want to acknowledge this fact or not.
God will demonstrate His mighty power in WW 3, as the enemies of Israel [Soviet-Islamic Confederacy] are vanquished.
American coasts are right now surrounded on Eastern, Southern and Western coasts by North Korea, Iran, Russia and China :
1. North Korean submarine along U.S. Eastern Coast with nuclear missile for possible EMP strike?
( electromagnetic pulse that would wipe out U.S. electricity etc. reducing America to a third world status.)
Biological-Chemical warfare of Rev. 9
The nation of North Korea is foremost in chemical warfare:
"Bolton also said that there is little doubt that North Korea has an active chemical weapons program and has "one of the most robust offensive bio-weapons programs on earth" [ underlining, this editor ]
2. Fleet of Iranian warships off U.S. East Coast
Their ships are in the port of Havanah, Cuba.
Is New York City the city referred to in Revelation:18: 10, devastated in one hour ?
"And there was silence in heaven, about the space of half an hour"--Revelation 8:1 [ exact time of missile flight]
"The missile follows a ballistic trajectory aimed with taking into account the Earth's rotation during the half-hour or so that the missile is in flight."

3. Russian silent subs in Gulf of Mexico http://freebeacon.com/national-security/silent-running/
4. China's Nuclear Submarine
Capable of attacking US from home waters in excess of 4,600 miles away ( our West coast and beyond)

OTHER End-time WARS : Seven Thunders ; during the Great Tribulation there will be seven other major conflicts. Their time sequence is not given, and is sealed up. Rev. 10:3
Once one nation attacks another nation with nukes, other nations will use their nukes against their enemies, now that Pandora’s box is finally opened.
FINAL WAR -- War of Armageddon Rev. 16:16; Rev. 19:11--20 Valley of Megiddo at the END of the Great Tribulation
