Well, as we continue to be locked in here in the Midwest by snow and sub-frigid temperatures things are heating up in other parts of the world. No, it has nothing to do with global warming, but it has everything to do with the condition of the world and the times we live in. Depending on how you read it Russian troops have invaded Crimea of the Ukraine or Russian troops have entered in to protect Russians in the Crimea. Ukraine claims up to 16,000 troops are on soil right now. Russian President Putin has stood his ground claiming the need while the POTUS wags his finger and says “get out of there or else”. Okay we won’t go there for now. Prison Planet has blamed this on the POTUS arrogance and hubris, maybe, but then Putin is claiming Western influence as the problem also.
Criminy, what’s the Crimea anyway? It’s called a peninsula but really looks more like an island that, historically, used to be a part of Russia but when the Soviet block was assembled the Crimea was given over to the Ukraine. Then when the Ukraine declared independence it naturally took the Crimea with it. So Russia wants it back, apparently the people there want to go back so what’s the big deal? To quote sales folk it’s location, location, location.
A look at the world map will show you that the island/peninsula of Crimea is directly west of what I call the Russian funnel. Western Russia funnels into, I guess, a sort of territorial peninsula. But where does this peninsula go? South, my boy, go south. And what is south? Turkey, Iran, Syria and, what’s this…..Israel.
The Prison Planet article above goes on to share, okay rag on, another failed revolt sponsored by the POTUS, even Putin agrees. But the guys at Prison Planet don’t see the big picture. It’s part of the fun to rag on the POTUS but dig a little deeper in a bigger world view. Irrespective of what Obama is, his part is more or less just a part of the big picture.
Two years ago, almost to the day I wrote about the election of Putin (Gog/Magog) and felt led to declare what my spirit felt, that Putin was Gog, put in place for that time spoken of in the book of Ezekiel. So, where are we now two years later? Putin has an excuse to start amassing troops and arms in the Russian funnel under the pretense of Crimea. Two years later he just laughs at any threat from the US because the US is lame, impotent, not any threat at all. As he begins to arm the funnel, let’s watch China, yeah, those guys NOT in the news.
I’m not declaring anything at the moment. Just postulating what it means for us here. If this is the beginning of the build up for the invasion spoken of in Ezekiel 38,39 , of particular import is the biblical lack of United States presence when the invasion occurs. What that means is that if the invasion takes place this year the US has to be reduced to nothing worldwide. Many prophetic Words have indicated and many secular advisers have also stated that this year the bottom is dropping out for the US. Is that what the POTUS has set up all along? Is he setting himself up to be foisted up to a bigger platform?
For you and me this is a time not to be taken lightly. What’s going on over there is a distraction. Now, actually always, is a time for fervent and deep prayer as to what to do for preparation or if God is moving you, to where? Are you even in a position to seek that Word from Him? The Bible says that ALL have fallen short. That includes you and me. But God has provided a way, the truth and the life, back to Him. He has provided a free gift to you so that you can be saved from what’s coming down the pike. Take that opportunity now, time is way too short.
