Turkiye releases Azov prisoners and returns them to Ukraine, breaking a deal with Russia

Earlier this month, Zelensky went to Turkiye, secured from Erdogan the release of five former Azov commanders who had fought for Ukraine in the battle for Mariupol, and flew them back with him to Ukraine (ref. 1). Upon receiving news of the release, an angry Kremlin said, “Nobody informed us about this. According to the terms of the agreement, these persons were supposed to stay on the territory of Turkiye until the end of the conflict”. So, Turkiye brokered a deal with Russia in 2022, and then less than a year later broke that deal.

Making a covenant only to break it (ref. Daniel 9:27) is the Devil’s way, for the Devil is the father of lies (ref. John 8:44).

What is more, these prisoners of war are far-right neo-Nazis, soldiers of Ukraine’s Azov battalion, who emblazon themselves with the Wolfsangel and even the Swastika. The fact that Nazis and Islamists are on the same side of this unfolding world war should surprise no one, because ultimately both groups serve the Devil, and both groups despise, above all, the Jews.

And when the dragon [Satan] saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [the Jewish people] which brought forth the man child [Jesus Christ, the Son of man].

Revelation 12:13

I should also point out that the anti-Putin Russian militia that raided Russia’s Belgorod region a few months ago was in essence a neo-Nazi formation armed with American vehicles (ref. 2). German officials have come out and said that Denis Kasputin, the leader of that Russian group, is a neo-Nazi. He lived in Germany in the early 2000s and was a person of interest.

Then, there is also the fact that Prigozhin, who a few weeks ago tricked his mercenaries into rebelling against Russian military high command, chose to name his mercenary force after Hitler’s favourite composer, “Wagner”.

So, neo-Nazism in these last days is not some misappropriated cliche and trope merely for slinging mud. Hitler’s ideology survives today and continues to spread because after WWII, America’s CIA in particular not only let prominent Nazis go free, but even recruited them, partly for the sake of acquiring German science and technology – i.e., Operation Paperclip – and partly because they considered communism the greater evil – i.e., the Nazi Reinhard Gehlen was recruited by the CIA to lead West Germany’s BND.

Today, alongside neo-Nazis are drug users, basically zombies that have lost their minds to demons, such as the stilleto wearing Zelensky (ref. Revelation 2:9), and also those who have long been spiritually inclined towards evil, for example someone who thinks it okay to adopt the callsign “witch” (ref. 3).

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

Exodus 22:18

Notice also that neo-Nazis today tend to have beards. The beard in the west in these last days is not about the fashion of hipsters, but rather about Islam. In time, the Devil will require all who are on his side to submit to will of the Assyrian, an Iraqi of Turkmen origin, and to obey also the False Prophet, a black American man.

And he exerciseth all the power of the first before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Revelation 13:12

You might think, there is no such thing as a black Nazi, but the pop song “Black Skinhead” says otherwise.

Now, the release of the Azovstal neo-Nazi POWs has put Russia at odds with Turkiye.

One response from Russia has been to cancel the grain deal, which was also brokered by Turkiye, an arrangement that saw Ukraine export its grain through the Black Sea (ref. 4). American sanctions on Russian grain and fertiliser exports might have been a contributing factor. Nevertheless, there is no doubt now that Russia is starting to regard Turkiye as an enemy. Indeed, Russian state media has begun to openly talk about war with Turkiye over the Black Sea (ref. 5).

The whole idea of Gog and Magog before the Millennial Reign, and somehow Russia and Turkiye aligned together for Gog, to attack Israel, was always wrong and delusional – the propaganda of demons. First of all, Turkiye is a member of NATO. Secondly, the Bible prophesies that Turkiye will be a part of the fourth beast, in other words the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. Turkiye is the part of the Islamic caliphate that resembles a “leopard”, a land that was once Greek (ref. Revelation 13:2). Russia, however, is to be a part of the kings of the east (ref. Job 39:26-30), the ones that fight against the fourth beast and against Babylon at the time of the sixth trumpet and vial (ref. Daniel 11:44).

The end of the grain deal should see the market price of wheat rise considerably. The Bible prophesies that there will be famines in some parts of the world at the time of the wars of nations and kingdoms (ref. Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11). Furthermore, at the time of the opening of the third seal, a measure of wheat is to cost a day’s wage somewhere in the world (ref. Revelation 6:6). This is something I brought up over a year ago, when cost of living and food shortage issues first started to appear in the news. By now, Christians and everyone else paying attention should have prepped.

Besides news that point to third seal, there is news also that point to the fourth. In Israel, there is a growing national security crisis in regard to the IDF. Over ten thousand reservists have so far announced that in protest of the proposed judicial reforms of Likud, they won’t continue to show up for national service (ref. 6). To add to that, the prime minister of Israel, Netanyahu, has recently had to undergo surgery to have a cardiac pacemaker implanted (ref. 7). For both of these reasons, Israel has never been more vulnerable militarily. The fourth seal of the apocalypse will begin the time of Jacob’s trouble.

As for the second seal, although sometimes it seems that China is trying to go in a different direction, not realising that it owes all of its wealth and military power in recent decades to God rather than luck or some kind of shortsightedness on the part of the USA, I should remind that during WWII, both the USA and the USSR were led by Freemasons, that is to say, individuals opposed to God. Yet by the end, both the USSR and the USA were fighting for the LORD of hosts, against Nazi Germany and the other Axis Powers.

For now, it is remarkable that even though Russia is alone against the entire US-led world order, Russia is winning the war! As the Bible prophesies, Russia has managed to conquer territory and hold on to it.

… he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
