Russia in the Middle East

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom,


Here we are in the middle of the festival of lights. Two of them are done and almost done with one more pagan feast to deal with.

I want to thank those of you who have written me this past week, thanking me for the web site and the radio show and telling us how much you are learning from us, as we stick to the straight and narrow. One lady from NZ I think it is, has been in this walk just one year and she is as hot as anything taking on her pastor and family and sharing with them these truths she is now learning. It is amazing to me how fast the new people are learning.

Others write to tell me that they and their entire group are now looking at the Sabbatical year teachings we have done and the whole group is going to be keeping it. I am getting more and more letters from around the world saying this same thing.

You have no idea how much these letters bless me at the times I need to read them the most. So thank you, each and every one of you.

I want to ask you all to help share this message and some are doing this already. But if each and every one of you were to take it upon yourself to write and keep writing and keep explaining to the News Anchor or the TV host or Religious host about the Sabbatical years and to send them a copy of the 2016 book, it would help to get this message out.

I have tried to write many of them and just do not have enough time to do it, nor know all those to write to. But if each of you were to be like the women nagging that judge for action then who knows what Yehovah will do through your efforts.

We have been thinking about building a school to teach Torah in the Philippines. If we could sell 100,000 books each quarter this dream would be a reality. But we need each of you talking to many of your brethren and family members encouraging them to get the books and to read them. The guys I work with have the books. When the Paris carnage took place and then again when the San Bernardino shooting took place and now the immigration of Syrians to Canada and the USA, these same non religious guys are talking to me about this and how it ties into the end times. They now pray I am wrong. But they are now thinking about it.

Your help in spreading the word is fulfilling the command in Ezekiel 33 of warning them about the sword coming when you see it. If we do this once or twice it is not enough. We must keep shouting it each day and every day until that time comes to pass. People who fought me tooth and nail years ago write to apologize and are now learning about the Sabbatical year. Keep shouting out the warning, you just never know who is listening.

You can use anything on my web site. Copy and paste all you want. Just help us to get the job done. Please tell others to get the books and begin to learn these truths. Time is running out.



Russia in the Middle East

This week I wanted to address those things that Russia is doing and causing in the Middle East. Some are claiming this is the start of the Gog Magog War. Is it? I question those who teach such things.

Rev 20:1  And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. 3  And he cast him into the abyss and shut him up and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the nations no more until the thousand years should be fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed a little time. 4  And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, nor in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5  But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6  Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years. 7  And when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison. 8  And he will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle. The number of them is as the sand of the sea. 9  And they went up over the breadth of the earth and circled around the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. 10  And the Devil who deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were . And he will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

The Gog Magog war that is going to come does so at the end of the 7th Millennium against Israel with all her wealth that she will have at that time. So I do not see Russia, whom I believe to be Gog, attacking now. And Magog I believe to be China.

A footnote: Although I prepared this article over a month ago, I have received information that states Gog and Magog to be what today is Italy. I regret I have not had time to do further research into that aspect of this article.

So what is going on now in the Middle East and how is Russia affecting prophecy?

We have this very interesting prophecy in Zechariah that we all need to pay attention to.

Zec 5:1  And I again lifted up my eyes and looked. And behold! A flying scroll. 2  And he said to me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits. 3 And he said to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth; for from now on everyone who steals shall be cut off according to it; and everyone who swears from now on shall be cut off according to it. 4  I will bring it forth, says Jehovah of Hosts; and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by My name. And it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall devour it, and its timber and its stones. 5  Then the angel who talked with me went forth and said to me, Now lift up your eyes and see what this is that goes forth. 6  And I said, What isit? And he said, This is the ephah that goes forth. And he said, This is their form in all the earth. 7  And behold, a lead cover was lifted up, and a woman was sitting in the middle of the ephah. 8  And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah. And he cast the lead stone over its opening. 9  And I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, two women came out. And the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork. And they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens. 10  And I said to the angel who talked with me, Where are they going with the ephah? 11  And he said to me, To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; and it shall be established and set there on its own base.



Let us now look at this again. The word for scroll is;


H4039    hlygm megilla?h      meg-il-law’

From H1556; a roll: – roll, volume.

Megillah, also spelled Megilla, Hebrew Megillah (“Scroll”), plural Megillot,  in the Hebrew Bible, any of the five sacred books of the Ketuvim  (the third division of the Old Testament), in scroll form, that are read in the synagogue in the course of certain festivals. The Song of Solomon (Song of Songs) is read on the sabbath of Passover week, the Book of Ruth on Shavuot, Lamentations of Jeremiah on Tisha be-Av, Ecclesiastes on the sabbath of the week of Sukkoth, and the Book of Esther on Purim. A Megillah is a book that rolls up into a single scroll. Our Torah, the first five books are two scrolls for each one. But a Megillah is one single scroll.

The 20 Cubits in length is 20 X 20.6 inches = 412.08 inches. We then divide this by 12 to get 34.34 Feet for the height.

The word width is circumference. To get the circumference you must take the 10 Cubits and divide it by pi. 10 x 20.6 dived by 3.142 = 65.64 which you must now divide by 12 to get the footage which is 5.47 feet.

This flying scroll is then 34.34 feet tall by 5.5 feet round.

You can see the two rockets used to lift this missile into the air. These are the two ish or women of Zechariah.

The Shahab 1 (translation: Meteor 1) is a single-stage, liquid-fueled, short-range ballistic missile. Iran obtained this weapon in 1987 from North Korea and implemented production of the weapon in the same year, though they may have originally acquired the missiles from Libya in 1985 and Syria in 1986.  The Shahab 1 is based off of the ‘Scud B’ platform. In order to understand the caliber of the Shahab 1 it is essential to briefly review the history of the Scud.

While the names of most ballistic missiles are obscure, the ‘Scud’ has become almost a household name. The SS-1A ‘Scud’ was designed a short time after the end of World War II by captured German scientists and is based upon the Nazi V-2 rocket which was used against London in the Second World War. In essence, the ‘Scud’ is the AK-47 of the missile world: reliable, simple and ubiquitous. The missile was produced in huge quantities and not even the Russians know exactly how many they built, let alone the number copied by foreign countries.

While most ‘Scud’ missiles now carry conventional explosives, the ‘Scud’ was originally developed to carry a 50 kT nuclear warhead. The SS-1B ‘Scud A’ (Russian designation R-11) entered into service in 1955 as a short range nuclear weapon to attack western Europe and was intended to carry a nuclear 50 kT yield warhead. The high explosive (HE) warhead was developed for export to other communist countries in the Cold War whom the Soviet Union was leery of giving nuclear strike capabilities.

The ‘Scud A’ was soon replaced with the SS-1C ‘Scud B’ The new missile had the advantage of being compatible with a transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) and could thus be deployed quickly and covertly. The TEL has built-in test equipment and is able to aim and fire the missile autonomously, though a separate command and control vehicle typically controls the targeting and firing. Aboard a TEL, a typical ‘Scud B’ takes approximately one hour to finish a single launch sequence.

We also read in Zechariah the following;

Zec 5:10  And I said to the angel who talked with me, Where are they going with the ephah? 11  And he said to me, To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; and it shall be established and set there on its own base.


This should cause you to ask the question, where is the land of Shinar?

Shinar (Hebrew runc Šin?ar ) is a biblical geographical locale of uncertain boundaries in Mesopotamia. The name may be a corruption of Hebrew Shene neharot (” two rivers”), Hebrew Shene arim (“two cities) or Akkadian Shumeru or Summer.

This location of Shinar is evident from its description as encompassing both Babel (in northern Babylonia) and Erech (Uruk) (in southern Babylonia).  In the Book of Genesis 10:10, the beginning of Nimrod’s kingdom is said to have been “Babel [Babylon], and Erech [Uruk]  and Akkad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.” Verse 11:2 states that Shinar enclosed the plain that became the site of the Tower of Babel after the Great Flood. After the Flood, the sons of Shem Ham and Japheth, had stayed first in the highlands of Armenia, and then migrated to Shinar.

In Genesis 14:1,9, King Amraphel also known as Nimrod rules Shinar.

Knowing what Zechariah says then, it is stunning to know that Israel twice has destroyed nuclear facilities in this same Shinar area.


The BBC reported this on June 7 1981.

1981: Israel bombs Baghdad nuclear reactor

The Israelis have bombed a French-built nuclear plant near Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, saying they believed it was designed to make nuclear weapons to destroy Israel.

It is the world’s first air strike against a nuclear plant.

An undisclosed number of F-15 interceptors and F-16 fighter bombers destroyed the Osirak reactor 18 miles south of Baghdad, on the orders of Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

The army command said all the Israeli planes returned safely.

Operation Orchard was an Israeli airstrike on a suspected nuclear reactor in the Deir ez-Zor region of Syria, which occurred just after midnight (local time) on September 6, 2007.


Returning to Zechariah we should now read the verse we skipped over.

Zec 5:3  And he said to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth; for from now on everyone who steals shall be cut off according to it; and everyone who swears from now on shall be cut off according to it. 4  I will bring it forth, says Jehovah of Hosts; and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by My name. And it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall devour it, and its timber and its stones.

Take note of the word steals. It means to deceive.

H1589 ga?nab gaw-nab’

A primitive root; to thieve (literally or figuratively); by implication to deceive: – carry away, X indeed, secretly bring, steal (away), get by stealth.

Now take a look at the word for swearing.

H7650 sha?ba? shaw-bah’

A primitive root; properly to becomplete, but used only as a denominative from H7651; to seven oneself, that is, swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times): – adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for H7646], take an oath, X straightly, (cause to, make to) swear.

This is what the Children of Israel do each year they count the Omer to Shavuot. It is also what they do when they keep the Jubilee Year. In both cases they seven themselves. That is they recall the oath they made to Yehovah at Mount Sinai. They recall the covenant that Israel now no longer keeps. The penalty for not keeping this oath at Mount Sinai is our own death for breaking this covenant.

These missiles are going to rain down on Israel, all 12 tribes, those who swear falsely by Yehovah’s name and on the Beast power, the deceiver. And they will devour the wood and the stone with this evil fire. This is Nuclear war and it is going to rain down everywhere.

So what is happening now with Russia on the scene?

They will now prevent Israel from sabotaging any facilities built in the Shinar area by setting up the dreaded S-400 anti aircraft missiles. They just supplied the Chinese with the S-300.
