And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of (Rosh), Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal…. (Ezekiel 38:1-3).
In apparently all other Bibles, Rosh has been omitted. World English Bible and my old Bible from 1952 as well as Biblehub write:”Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal”. Rosh, the Russians, descendants of the ancient inhabitants on the river Araxes or Rosh”.
The Independent 10 June 2016: After years of capitalism, Russia wants a tsar again.
And so does Svetlana Alexievich. The Nobel Laureate, who has spent years collecting stories from all strata in the former USSR, says her own people can’t handle democracy
“Putin the democrat’ is our shortest joke.”
The Daily Mail 1 Jan. 2017 and The Sun 1. Jan. 2017: Russia should reinstate the monarchy, and appoint Vladimir Putin as royal emperor, says an influential Moscow churchman.
Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said another option would be to bring back the Romanov dynasty, which was overthrown exactly a century ago in 1917.
The Orthodox Church figurehead’s comments come amid increasing concern Russia is moving towards a feudal system where church and state go hand-in-hand.
“It doesn’t matter that we don’t now have formal monarchy, I think we can re-make it with Putin on top”.
In the imperial era, the tsar or emperor was also head of the Orthodox church.
The Royal Central 2 jan. 2017 After Kirill I, Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Chaplin was found in a survey to be the most widely recognised figure of the Russian Orthodox Church
The current leading heir to the former Russian Empire is Maria Vladimirovna, Grand Duchess of Russia. A firm believer in the restoration of the Russian monarchy she has said before that she “is ready to answer the people’s call”, and has styled herself as Her Imperial Highness for much of her life. In 2013, she received the backing of Kirill I, who declared her and her son, Grand Duke George Mikhailiovich, to be the sole heirs to the Romanov dynasty and its legacy.
Russian society is hardly aching for the reinstatement of the royal family, which was deposed by Bolshevik revolutionaries nearly a century ago, experts said.
Radio Free Europe 28 March 2016: Chaplin´s rhetoric often seemed to place him at the vanguard of Putin’s conservative pivot — and even in its most extreme forms, it seemed to express real Kremlin fears. But it also got him enemies: Patriarch Kirill and influential Volodin in the Kremlin. Therefore, he was fired as spokesman for the Orthodox Russian Church. However, he has been very loyal to Putin all along.
BUT: CHAPLIN IS ANOTHER ZHIRINOVSKY WORKING FOR PUTIN:
Euromaidanpress 19 Aug. 2016: He is the scapegoat to launch views of government and church, to measure the popular response – and possibly be mildly “punished”.
Patriarch Kirill I, the Moscow Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, with Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin – probably of Jewish origin – behind him. Kirill is a good friend of Putin´s and also superrich. He is a former KGB agent – like Putin – as was his predecessor Alexei II (The Telegraph 23 Febr. 2008). The Orthodox Church was a loyal collaborator with the Soviet system, although it killed 200.000 clergymen. The Church is infiltrated by many Crypto-Jews – like Putin.
After Chaplin lost his position as a senior aide to and frequent spokesman for Patriarch Kirill a year ago, the paper noted, the archpriest has become a kind of “Zhirinovsky from Orthodoxy,” someone who will say openly what others are only thinking.
Just as with Zhirinovsky, there is good reason to think that Chaplin’s words reflect more than just his own thoughts, especially since the archpriest was close for so long to Kirill and shares his former boss’s hatred of humanism.
The fact is that he, the paper suggests, will make it easier for others to say the same and ultimately to act on that as well.
In all probability, Putin´s original name was Epstein – and his Parents Jews in St. Petersburg. This is supported by the fact that a united orthodox Jewry leadership visited and addressed Putin the way they did when they anointed ancient Israeli kings. Thus Putin was appointed king of Jews!!
Here the Supreme rabbis of the Sephardic and Azhkenazi Jews visit Putin – and de facto appoint him King of Jews: Putin is among Pharisaic friends:
iDigital Times 30 June 2015: Vladimir Putin is, right now, president of just one of the the Russian Federation, the largest state in the world. Historically speaking, there are three Russias: Great Russia, Little Russia, and White Russia, or as they are known today, Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus.
Vladimir Putin is ultimately of unknown stock, possibly peasant stock, possibly a semi-mythical branch of the Rurikids. That last part is important: He’s got an almost certainly spurious connection to the family that founded Russia, giving him a claim more senior even to the Romanovs.
And Putin remains unprecedentedly popular, around or above 80% much of the time.
Why not restore Russia to its true height, and lock himself into its history for all eternity? I even know when he would do it: July 17, 2018. A hundred years to the day from the extermination of the Romanovs. It would bring about the age of Vladimir Putin I, Emperor and Autocrat of all the Russias, of Moscow. May it be so.
The Pravda 31 Aug. 2016 is even proposing that Putin´s ancestor, Stalin´s cook, from Tver was an illegitimate descendant of a Russian Prince Putyanin there – and thus would be related to all European families. It was customary for aristocracy to give cut names to their illegitinate offspring.
This is mere guesswork – but one cannot look away from the weird circumstance that Russia´s Communist Party Newspaper launches such an unfounded theory at this time.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE? Also the fact that The Euromaidan Press guesses that Putin might be a descendant of the Viking chief who founded a kingdom near St. Petersburg is strange at this time.
“Prince” Putin already is the new TSAR.
The Moscow Times 13 July 2015: The Romanows Will never govern again. Russia already has its Tsar: Putin. However: The Express 24 June 2015 stated that Putin wanted ro reinstate the Romanov Family as tsars of Russia.
For one, it would make it easier for him to “legalize” the enormous fortune he hastaken from the Russians – instead of trying to conceal it in a Panaman tax haven.
Next: This man´s ambitions on Russia´s and his own behalf are big.
Does Chaplin express Putin´s desire of the Tsar throne for himself? He has been indoctrinated by his mentor, Alexandr Dugin, to reestablish the Romanov Empire – in fact a Eurasian Empire from Lisbon to Vladivostock!
