Rev 6:6 NAS And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”
LEBANON OFFICIALLY DECLARES BANKRUPTCY; A PROPHECY OF EZEKIEL
Lebanon’s Deputy Prime Minister, Saadeh al-Shami made an official announcement on Monday declaring that Lebanon is bankrupt.
“Unfortunately, the state is bankrupt, as is the Banque du Liban. Our Government wanted to come up with a solution, and the loss occurred due to policies for decades, but if we did nothing, the loss would be much greater.”
“This is a fact that cannot be ignored, and we cannot live in a state of denial, and we cannot open (bank) withdrawals to everyone. I wish that our situation was normal.”
In chapter 26 in the Book of Ezekiel, the prophet foresees that Lebanon will become a place of “drying nets” and a “spoil for the nations.” The chapter speaks of Tyre, which was the Phonecian capital of Lebanon at that time.
She shall be in the heart of the sea A place for drying nets; For I have spoken it —declares Hashem. She shall become spoil for the nations (Ezekiel 26:5)
The prophecy about Lebanon becoming a ‘spoil for the nations’ seems to have merit today. That’s because, following the infamous Beirut blast of 2020, China has targeted the northern port of Tripoli as a critical link for Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Lebanon has also been reported to be a Chinese business target.
This might also be referenced in the 12th passage:
They shall plunder your wealth And loot your merchandise. (Ezekiel 26:12)
“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, ‘This is what the Lord God says: Behold, I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. So I will turn you around and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them magnificently dressed, a great contingent with shield and buckler, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Cush, and Put with them, all of them with buckler and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-Togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you.'” — Ezekiel 38:1-6
‘God Is Getting Ready to Do Something Amazing’: CBN Founder Pat Robertson on Russia and Its Place in Prophecy
He cited key passages from the prophet Ezekiel regarding nations coming together one day to rise up against Israel – specifically pointing to what Russia is doing in Ukraine as a precursor to that event:
Referring to a map showing the location of Ukraine, Robertson pointed to a “choke point” between Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece and why Russia might eventually be aiming to control that point.
Robertson also showed a map explaining which biblical names correspond to the modern-day countries.
Gomer = Ukraine
Rosh = Russia
Magog = Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Armenia, and Azerbaijan
Persia = Iran
Togarmah and Tubal = Turkey and Syria
Put = Libya
Cush = North Sudan and Egypt
“All of those troops there are going to be coming against Israel in the latter days. And God says, ‘I am going to take care of it.'”
“But is Putin insane?” he asked. “Well, yes and no. Because he is being driven to move against Israel because God says ‘I’m going to put hooks in your jaws and I’m going to bring you down on them.’ Now you get the picture.”
