Russians ‘will go to heaven’ in event of nuclear war: Putin

October 19, 2018SpaceDaily.com reports: “Russians will ‘go to heaven’ as martyrs in the event of nuclear war because Moscow will only ever use nuclear weapons in retaliation, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

‘We have no concept of a preemptive strike,’ Putin told a forum of international experts in the southern city of Sochi in response to a question from the audience.

‘In such a situation, we expect to be struck by nuclear weapons, but we will not use them’ first, he said.

‘The aggressor will have to understand that retaliation is inevitable, that it will be destroyed and that we, as victims of aggression, as martyrs, will go to heaven.

‘They will simply die because they won’t even have time to repent,’ he said to some laughter from the audience…”  (Ezekiel 38:5 predicts that Russia, the Orient, and Persia [which changed its name to Iran in 1932] will see millions destroyed through atomic warfare in the Latter Years and Latter Days – Ezekiel 38:8, 16. Prepare to meet thy God Israel – Amos 4:12. This battle is described in Revelation 9:14 – 18: “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.”) 

Kremlin: We’ll respond in kind if U.S. develops intermediate missiles

October 22, 2018The Jerusalem Post reports: “The Kremlin said on Monday that Russia would be forced to respond in kind if the United States began developing new missiles after quitting a landmark Cold War-era treaty.

President Donald Trump said on Saturday that Washington would withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty because Russia was violating the pact, triggering a warning of retaliatory measures from Moscow.

The treaty, signed by then-President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, required the elimination of short-range and intermediate-range nuclear and conventional missiles by both countries. Its demise would raise the possibility of a spiraling arms race…”  (Russia in Bible prophecy is the main instigator of death and suffering during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16.  Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39, which I have proclaimed for sixty years, aided by Oriental and Islamic nations, bring total chaos and atomic devastation upon the world.  Worse yes, it’s just ahead of us.  Every nation I included in World War III is forming exactly as taught this global blood bath six decades ago.  The only good news is that the Rapture precedes Armageddon – “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.  Then our deliverance as believers – Revelation 4:1 and our joy because of missing Armageddon.  See the next two reports.)

US nuclear treaty ultimatum about China as much as Russia

October 23, 2018SpaceDaily.com reports: “By announcing its intent to withdraw from a decades-old nuclear weapons treaty, the United States is targeting Russia, which it says violated the bilateral deal — but also China, which is developing arms that are banned under it.

Beijing is not a signatory to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), so it’s Russia that has been singled out for violating the accord, signed in 1987 by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

At issue is Moscow’s new 9M729 ground-based missile system, which Washington says has a reach that exceeds 500 kilometers (300 miles) — a claim the Kremlin denies.

‘Russia has not unfortunately honored the agreement, so we’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out,’ US President Donald Trump said Saturday at a campaign rally in Nevada…”

Russia Signals Willingness to Consider U.S. Complaints about Arms Treaty

October 23, 2018Voice of America News reports: “Russia signaled Monday it is willing to consider mutual complaints the United States and it have about their continued implementation of the 1987 nuclear weapons treaty between the two world powers.

Russian Security Council chairman Nikolai Patrushev expressed Moscow’s ‘readiness for joint work’ on the pact as he met in the Russian capital with his U.S. counterpart, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton.

For his part, Bolton said that the U.S. had not made any decision to deploy missiles in Europe targeting Russia if the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty is scrapped…”
