MOSCOW – The head of Iran’s elite military Quds Force, who is subject to a United Nations travel ban , has visited Russia , two U.S. security sources said on Friday. Qassem Soleimani , chief of the force which is an overseas arm of the Revolutionary Guards , has been subject to an ' international travel ban & asset freeze ' by the U.N. Security Council since 2007.
Fox News reported that Soleimani had arrived in Moscow on July 24 & met Russian President Vladimir Putin & Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu before departing three days later. A Kremlin spokesman ' denied ' any meeting between Soleimani & Putin had taken place , RIA news agency reported.
Two officials at the Russian Foreign Ministry said they could neither confirm nor deny a Soleimani visit to Moscow. The Russian defense ministry was not available for comment. Washington designated Soleimani’s Quds Force as a supporter of terrorism in 2007. The European Union did the same in 2011. Western governments & Israel accuse it of arming various militant groups in the Middle East. U.N. member states are required to deny entry to blacklisted individuals.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - This secretive meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin & Iran's military mastermind General Soleimani , was not merely a violation of the P5+1 sanctions applied by the Western nations . . . it was also a meeting destined to unleash a geo-political earthquake upon the nations. It was a meeting that ' WILL ' change the course of world history !!! . . . & it was foretold over 2,500 years ago in God's Word !!
In the apocalyptic 38th chapter of Ezekiel's prophecy ( which details the outbreak of the end-times ' Battle of Armageddon ' ) in verse 8 the latter-day ' Gog ' is told " After many days thou shalt be visited " As the chapter describes this " visit " is the prophetic catalyst to the subsequent invasion of the Middle East - & ultimately Israel - by Russia's ' Gog ' & his accompanying ' confederacy of nations '. Other renderings of this phrase in verse 8 have the idea of a " call to arms / call to action " in a military sense. As military & political analysts have observed , the likely purpose of General Soleimani's trip to meet Vladimir Putin , was two-fold . . . to facilitate the Iranian purchase of Russian S-300 missiles & to procure Russia's involvement to prop up their mutual ally , Syria's Assad Regime. Russia's sudden deployment of military forces in recent days , is confirmation of the prophetic importance of this meeting & a troubling development that may be the foundation for Russia's coming invasion of ' many ' countries in the Middle East . . as foretold in God's Word.
EZEKIEL 38 v 7-8 - Be thou ( Russian ' Gog ' ) prepared & prepare for thyself , thou & all thy company that are assembled unto thee & be thou a ' guard ' unto them. After many days ' thou shalt be visited ' . . . ' in the latter years ' thou shalt come into the land ( Israel ) that is brought back from the sword & is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste : but is brought forth out of the nations & they shall dwell safely all of them.
v9-12 Thou shalt ascend & come like a storm, thou shalt be ' like a cloud ' to cover the land , thou , & all thy bands, & many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord GOD ; It shall also come to pass , that at the same time shall things come into thy mind & thou shalt think an evil thought : And thou shalt say , I will go up to the land of unwalled villages ; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls & having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, & to take a prey ; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited & upon the people that are gathered out of the nations,
