Just a few years ago, Russia was almost irrelevant. But that has changed, and here’s why:
Russia’s Getting Ready for Something
“Russia may be gearing up and preparing for military action,” said Dr. Nikolas Gvosdev recently, a chair for the US Naval War College. “That comes on the heels of the latest Russian snap exercise.”
These snap exercises – or military drills – have been occurring more frequently over the last few years.
Did you know NATO recently put military presence on the Russian border?
While we were watching Trump and Hillary, NATO quietly filed onto Russia’s border because, well, they’re doing something.
And Russia’s response? Form three new military divisions.
In the Last Days – and quite possibly after the Rapture (see timeline below) – Russia will lead a coalition in an attack against Israel. The reawakening of the sleeping Russian giant is a strong indicator that time could be near.
America appears to be descending into a heartbreaking cultural civil war. Whether instigated by incessant media coverage or not, the fact is – it’s happening. Tension between US law enforcement and the general population appears to be at an all-time high.
People Hesitant to Live in Some Cities
Civil unrest has crept into many American cities; in fact, a recent poll indicated New York City and Chicago dropped in desirability rankings due to police misconduct and violence (did you hear about the 71-year-old Chicago man shot while watering his yard?)
That’s not all:
Nearly a fifth of the cities surveyed slipped due to security fears, suggesting that as far as many urban areas are concerned, we’re living in tense times.

Dallas Massacre Suspect
One suspect in the Dallas law enforcement standoff this summer told then-Dallas Police Chief the “end is coming.”
And it’s not just in the States. The president of the Philippines declared a state of lawlessness in response to an ISIS attack.
Jesus Himself said violence would increase in the Last Days (Matthew 24:12). You don’t have to look far to find it.
Flakka, a drug popularized by the 2013 case of a homeless man eating another’s face, appears to be transforming normal people into superhumans. It’s gripping many and has resulted in several gruesome crimes.
Flakka, along with other psychedelic drugs, has caused all this (and more):
- 28-year-old Joseph Goda of Bethlehem, PA, was killed by two friends after they snorted flakka. Police discovered Goda’s bitten body in his friend’s car trunk.
- 19-year-old Austin Harrouff, a college student, attacked a random couple in their home and then gnawed the male victim’s face.
- Nico Gallo, 19, was allegedly high on Dibutylone when he cannon-balled through a glass window and attacked a woman and her son.
What is flakka?
There’s nothing remotely natural about flakka. The pharmaceutical name for the designer drug is a-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone – otherwise known as a-PVP or alpha-PVP – a chemical compound originally synthesized in the 1960s. The Drug Policy Alliance calls it the “second-generation bath salts.” Flakka comes as a foul-smelling white or pink crystal that, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, you can snort, eat, inject or even vape. Like bath salts, the substance is packaged in plastic bags or vials and labeled “not for human consumption” or “plant food.” You can buy it online or off the street.
Revelation 9:20-21 says that people in the Last Days will be increasingly consumed with “pharmakeia” which is the Greek word for drugs. The more widespread it becomes, the closer we are.
Are you afraid of increasing violence coming to you? Have you experienced any of this? Please share your story in the comments.
