Russia Unleashed – The Bear With Three Ribs

The primary beast, the lion with the eagle’s wings, is a really wonderful description because the eagle can also be the nationwide image of the USA. I imagine all of the animals that describe the 4 beasts are the nationwide symbols for these international locations. If one needed to guess what nation the second beast resembled, the bear with the three ribs in its mouth, I’ve little question that because the bear is the nationwide image of Russia that only a few individuals wouldn’t make this comparability. Let’s look once more at Daniel’s description of the second beast (Daniel 8:5): “And instantly one other beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one aspect, and had three ribs in its mouth between its enamel. 

They usually stated thus to it: ‘Come up, devour a lot flesh!'” When you recall I additionally proposed that the second beast is the second nation talked about in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. The second nation was the dominion of silver that was described because the arms and chest of the statue. If we add all these prophetic imagery collectively we’ll find yourself with the next description of the second beast. For the reason that second beast is a kingdom of silver I imagine the second beast is a powerful financial energy, not as sturdy as the USA (the primary beast, the dominion of gold) however nonetheless an financial energy. 

The 2 arms of the statue that represents the second beast point out that it’s a divided kingdom; the dominion is product of two sturdy factions that are vying for management. The outline of the bear raised up on one aspect signifies that certainly one of factions may be very a lot stronger than the opposite however the different faction, though weaker, nonetheless retains some quantity of management over the dominion. I imagine the three ribs within the bear’s mouth symbolize three totally different international locations which were invaded by Russia and their financial assets have been consumed by Russia in order that their nations have been devastated. Even so, these “ribs” appear to have sufficient political energy such that the ribs are in a position to command the bear to go invade and devastate different international locations. 

Ezekiels Imaginative and prescient of Gog
“And the phrase of the LORD got here unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face towards Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy towards him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I’m towards thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I’ll flip thee again, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I’ll convey thee forth, and all thine military, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all types of armour, even an incredible firm with bucklers and shields, all of them dealing with swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with defend and helmet:” 
(Ezekiel 38:1-5)

Whereas I’m not the primary, I imagine that this passage describes the invasion of Israel ultimately instances by a nation referred to as Gog and Gog represents the fashionable day nation of Russia. Many students imagine that Meschech and Tubal are historical names for the fashionable day cities of Moscow and Tobolsk, Russia. I imagine the three ribs that inform the Russian bear to eat extra meat are the nations of Iran (Persian), Ethiopia and Libya as described in these verses. 

“Due to this fact, thou son of man, prophesy towards Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I’m towards thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I’ll flip thee again, and go away however the sixth a part of thee, and can trigger thee to return up from the north elements, and can convey thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I’ll smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and can trigger thine arrows to fall out of thy proper hand.

Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the individuals that’s with thee: I’ll give thee unto the ravenous birds of each type, and to the beasts of the sphere to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open subject: for I’ve spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I’ll ship a hearth on Magog, and amongst them that dwell carelessly within the isles: they usually shall know that I’m the LORD. So will I make my holy identify identified within the midst of my individuals Israel; and I cannot allow them to pollute my holy identify any extra: and the heathen shall know that I’m the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezekiel 39:1-7)

This passage describes how God will shield Israel and the way devastating the destruction that Russia will encounter shall be. Russia’s weapons shall be knocked out of her arms and only one/6 of Russia’s forces will survive this encounter. The “isles” on this passage point out that Europe is concerned on this marketing campaign and God may even punish them for this offensive.
“Behold, it’s come, and it’s executed, saith the Lord GOD; that is the day whereof I’ve spoken. They usually that dwell within the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fireplace and burn the weapons, each the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, they usually shall burn them with fireplace seven years: In order that they shall take no wooden out of the sphere, neither minimize down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fireplace: they usually shall spoil those who spoiled them, and rob those who robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to cross in that day, that I’ll give unto Gog a spot there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the ocean: and it shall cease the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: they usually shall name it The valley of Hamon-gog. And 7 months shall the home of Israel be burying of them, that they might cleanse the land. Yea, all of the individuals of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. 

They usually shall sever out males of continuous employment, passing by the land to bury with the passengers those who stay upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the tip of seven months shall they search. And the passengers that cross by the land, when any seeth a person’s bone, then shall he arrange an indication by it, until the buriers have buried it within the valley of Hamon-gog. And likewise the identify of town shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Communicate unto each feathered fowl, and to each beast of the sphere, Assemble yourselves, and are available; collect yourselves on each aspect to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even an incredible sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye might eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fats until ye be full, and drink blood until ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I’ve sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be crammed at my desk with horses and chariots, with mighty males, and with all males of conflict, saith the Lord GOD. And I’ll set my glory among the many heathen, and all of the heathen shall see my judgment that I’ve executed, and my hand that I’ve laid upon them. So the home of Israel shall know that I’m the LORD their God from that day and ahead.” (Ezekiel 39:8-22)

It’s fascinating to notice that Israel will burn Russia’s weapons for seven years and makes use of them as an vitality provide; I imagine this seven 12 months interval is the tribulation interval. I imagine this as a result of the destruction of Russia, as Ezekiel writes about this additional on on this chapter, marks the time when all of the Jews return to Israel. The destruction of those armies shall be an unbelievable occasion since it can take Israel 7 months to bury all of the our bodies.

“And the heathen shall know that the home of Israel went into captivity for his or her iniquity: as a result of they trespassed towards me, due to this fact hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell all of them by the sword. In keeping with their uncleanness and in keeping with their transgressions have I executed unto them, and hid my face from them. Due to this fact thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I convey once more the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the entire home of Israel, and shall be jealous for my holy identify;   After that they’ve borne their disgrace, and all their trespasses whereby they’ve trespassed towards me, once they dwelt safely of their land, and none made them afraid. When I’ve introduced them once more from the individuals, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them within the sight of many countries;   Then shall they know that I’m the LORD their God, which trigger them to be led into captivity among the many heathen: however I’ve gathered them unto their very own land, and have left none of them any extra there. Neither will I cover my face any extra from them: for I’ve poured out my spirit upon the home of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 39:23-29)

As I discussed above on this passage it’s apparent that the destruction of the Russian bear in Israel marks the time when Israel’s individuals which can be unfold all through the world will lastly return to Israel.
