NATO agrees to boost defences after Russian ‘aggression’
February 6, 2015 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “NATO agreed Thursday to dramatically boost its defenses with six command centers in eastern Europe and a spearhead force of 5,000 troops, to counter what the alliance called Russian aggression in Ukraine.
Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg insisted that the increase approved by defense ministers in Brussels was purely defensive, but it is likely to rile a Moscow that is more wary than ever of Western military intentions.

I believe the Rapture will happen before this climactic war – “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” – Revelation 3:10.)
