PROPHECY INSIGHTS - A Biblical plague of locusts in Southern Russia is amazing to see with Bible in hand. In Joel 1 v 1-12 we read about a plague of locusts coming. Read it in a modern version as it talks about the different stages of the locust. In verse 6 we read that the locusts are symbolic of a nation powerful & without number invading God’s land. In chapter 2 the army comes. And there has never been an army like this one. It devours everything in front of it. Before them it looks like Eden, behind them as they pass over it is a desert waste. Joel 2v20 says the sky goes dark & there are thick clouds ( like locusts ). So who is this army ? Well Joel 2v20 tells us they are a “ northern army ”. We are told God himself will destroy this army. The northern army that invades with such destruction is of course Russia. And this week the locust swarms literally have appeared!
JOEL 1 v 4-6 - What the locust swarm has left the great locusts have eaten ; what the great locusts have left the young locusts have eaten ; what the young locusts have left other locusts have eaten . Wake up , you drunkards & weep ! Wail ; wail because of the new wine, for it has been snatched from your lips. A nation ( Russia ) has invaded my land ( Israel ) , a mighty army without number.
