Russia and NATO Actively Preparing for War

Russia and Nato 'actively preparing for war'

Russia and Nato are actively preparing for war with one another amid the greatest build up of military tension in Europe since the end of the Cold War, a new report says.

Rival exercises by the Russian armed forces and Nato have led to several near-miss incidents that could result in confrontation between the two sides, and leaders need to consider a new arms control treaty to avert the possibility of heightened tensions spilling into war.

The report by the European Leadership Network, a think tank, comes amid the most intense fighting for six months in eastern Ukraine and as Michael Fallon, the defence minister, pledged to expand a British army training mission to Ukraine.

“We do not suggest that the leadership of either side has made a decision to go to war or that a military conflict between the two is inevitable, but that the changed profile of exercises is a fact and it does play a role in sustaining the current climate of tensions in Europe,” the authors write.

The report outlines how both Nato and Russia have primed their forces to respond to an escalation since the Ukraine crisis erupted in early 2014.

The preparations include major military exercises by both Russia and Nato that appear designed exclusively to respond to one another’s capabilities and potential war plans.

”Whilst spokespeople may maintain that these operations are targeted against only hypothetical opponents, the nature and scale of the operations indicate otherwise,” the report writers say.

In March 2015, Russian conducted “snap exercises” that saw 80,000 troops engaged in long-range deployments and simulate combat on a scale that made the United States or Nato the only possibly adversary.

Nato’s exercise “Allied Shield,” in June this year, saw 15,000 allied troops engaged in a series of mock operations including response to a Crimea-style infiltration of irregular forces.


With 100% certainty we can say that there will be a WWIII.  Of course we have no idea when....but with the way things are brewing in the Middle East and the sudden aggressiveness of Russia and China, it could be a lot sooner than most complacent Americans can imagine.

What we don't know is whether or not followers of Jesus Christ will be around to witness the next World War.  It's quite possible that the next world war that involves Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Middle East, Israel, and the Kings of the East could be part of the wars that will take place during the Great Tribulation.....if so, we followers of Christ will already be with Jesus enjoying or glorified bodies and  waiting to mount our white horses and watch from the sky as Jesus puts an end to the whole chaotic mess.

"But Dennis, are you serious?  You honestly believe that Jesus is going to come snatch you and your buddies off the earth and transform your bodies into some type of eternal flesh?  You DO KNOW that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy are all make-believe....right?"

Yes, I am well aware that the Bible tells a fantastic story involving global floods, lakes being parted, dead people rising, the earth opening up and swallowing hundreds of rebels, water being turned to blood, demons from hell inhabiting human bodies, fallen angels breeding with women in an attempt to usurp God's plan, and the Creator of the World humbling himself and dying on a cross to make atonement for our sins.....and I believe it all!!

So when the Bible says,  "After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.".....I TOTALLY BELIEVE IT'S GONNA HAPPEN!

Are YOU ready for that day?  Are your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers ready for that day?
