The demonization of Vladimir Putin may have been the factor that gave Putin another six years as president of Russia

JD: The Russian elections I do believe probably lifted up the popularity of Vladimir Putin because they tried to demonize him. What’s you take on that?

JR: Our insight actually from last weeks broadcast was exactly what came to pass. We see that Putin has been re-elected you know overwhelmingly. In 2012 he was elected sixty-three percent of the vote, 2018 was seventy-six percent of the vote so a huge increase. But it appears as we spoke about the spy-poisoning incident or whatever that that was a setup for the west to react strong handedly and it played into a greater turn out and even more popular.

The news media in Russia very clearly demonizes the west and makes the connection objections of the west work towards the interest of the Russian state. Vladimir Putin being in power now for eighteen years as President or Prime Minister has been elected for the next six years. So, we do see as you’ve said that Russia with the alignment of the Middle Eastern nations in particularly Turkey and Iran are helping to set up what we see as a scenario for an emanate invasion of Israel is Ezekiel 38 war. It appears as well even stronger these most recent years because Turkey at one time was not so clear in their alignment but now they’ve become quite vocal in taking lots of action in terms of having dictator principals. So, we do see these things lining up and it appears to be a continuation of the objectives of Russia into these next years. 

JD: John Rood on the details behind the re-election of Vladimir Putin as President of Russia.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Like it or not Vladimir Putin will be President of Russia for six more years. This scenario and the fact that the Russian leader is developing a coalition of nations in the Middle East all with a desire to destroy the Jewish state of Israel is exactly what Bible prophecy calls for that’s found in Ezekiel 38:2-6. This passage mentions Russia, Turkey and Iran the players who are key to the Gog-Magog battle. If indeed the European Union demonization of Putin was a key factor in his re-election it also puts in place the two superpowers for the end times the Revived Roman Empire and the Russian coalition.
