Today, Azerbaijian launched a military operation against Armenia, for the disputed territory known to Armenia as Artsakh, the same known to Azerbaijian as Nagorno-Karabakh (ref. 1).
This is one of the wars of nations and kingdoms prophesied in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, because the disputed region is essentially a realm or “kingdom” contested by two different peoples, each people being a separate “nation”.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.Matthew 24:6-8
A military spokesman for Azerbaijan said that Azerbaijan has no military objectives in the nation of Armenia, and the intention of this operation is to take the disputed territory once and for all (ref. 1): “Enough is enough. We cannot tolerate any longer having such armed forces on our territory and also a structure which, on a daily basis, challenges the security and sovereignty of Azerbaijan”.
The hostilities commences with artillery fire into the capital Stepanakert, killing 2 civilians and wounding 23. Azerbaijan announced the start of operations hours after 4 of their soldiers and 2 civilians died as a result of landmine explosions in the disputed territory.
For months now, Azerbaijan has blockaded the Lachin Corridor, the only road that connects Armenia to the 120000 ethnic Armenians in Artsakh (ref. 2). This created a humanitarian crisis for Armenians living in the disputed territory. For its part, Azerbaijan accused Armenia of using the road to bring in military supplies.
The Lachin Corridor was supposed to be held by Russian peacekeepers after the 2020 conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, but Moscow’s attention and military resources have been diverted because of the war in Ukraine.
In the grand scheme of things, this war is happening because of the current prime minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan. Pashinyan was a journalist who came to power in 2018 through a colour revolution, that in all likelihood involved the CIA. Pashinyan himself described it as a “Velvet Revolution”. Since then, Pashinyan has stacked the Armenian government with minions of George Soros.
To make matters worse, now in regard to this latest conflict, Pashinyan has appeared on TV to say that Armenia will not intervene (ref. 3).
Armenians must rise up and somehow recover their own country from the grip of Satan. Pashinyan is a traitor, ethnically and spiritually! Only by rising up can Armenians save their brethren in Artsakh.
For some time now, Pashinyan has been taking Armenia, which has long been an ally of Russia, into the orbit of the west. In fact, last week, 11 September 2023, Armenia and the USA held a 10 day joint military exercise codenamed “Eagle Partner” (ref. 4).
Yet, it is God’s will that Armenia side with Russia, being one of the young ones of the double headed bird, an emblem of the Russian Federation. This is Job 39:30.
Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south? Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence she seeketh her prey, and her eyes behold afar off. Her young ones [incl. Armenia] also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.Job 39:26-30
Armenia destiny in these last days is also described in Jeremiah 51:27, “Ararat”.
Set ye up a standard in the land, blow the trumpet among the nations, prepare the nations against her, call together against her the kingdoms of Ararat [Armenia], Minni, Ashchenaz; appoint a captain against her; cause the horses to come up as the rough caterpillers.Jeremiah 51:27
It is said that Noah’s ark rests somewhere on Mount Ararat, a mountain that is on Armenia’s coat of arms. The same coat of arms features an eagle and a lion, two very Christian and saintly ideas.
Mount Ararat has always been one of the symbols of the nation of Armenia, but today, Mount Ararat is in Turkey.
This means, it is Armenia’s destiny to side with Russia in these last days, and eventually fight against the Islamists, including the coming Assyrian, the Antichrist.
Remember, Armenia is Christian, whereas Azerbaijan, backed by Turkey, is Muslim.
