WND (Langley Intelligence Group): “Putin may feel he has been backed into a corner (due to U.S. and EU sanctions) and could respond by sending troops into Ukraine on a supposed humanitarian mission to shore up the separatists in the east of the country,” according to the open intelligence Langley Intelligence Group Network, or Lignet.

“Since Putin has shown no willingness to lose face by abandoning the rebels, he probably plans to continue to stand behind them, even if this means invading eastern Ukraine,” the Lignet report said.

Opinion: The past weeks have brought new readers to our site with the war in Israel and the tensions in Russia. Biblically, Ukraine is an important country, so lets review it in relation to prophecy.

On January 25, 2014 we posted “Should Ukraine Be Divided” with this by-line from the article from Zero Hedge “The western and north central parts will then be able to create a Western oriented state which is linguistically entirely Ukrainian while the southern and eastern parts can either merge with Russia or create a linguistically Russian state allied with Russia.”

Trouble began in Ukraine on November 25, 2013 when the pro-EU western part of the nation rebelled against Russia for voting down an EU trade agreement. A statue of Vladimir Lenin was torn down in Kiev similar to Saddam Hussein in 2003.

West Ukraine was part of three empires:

  • Assyrian Empire that dominated the known world in three stages from 2500 to 700 BC.
  • Scythian Empire from 700 to 200 BC
  • Roman Empire AD 117-138 under the Emperor Hadrian

Daniel 2:40-44 describes a fourth kingdom, a revived Roman Empire that will dominate the world in the last days. Daniel 7:23 says that the kingdom will trample the earth and in Daniel 9:26 we are told that the final dictator will emerge from somewhere inside it’s borders.

The nations that were part of the ancient Roman Empire are beginning to return to fulfill the prophecy.

If Putin takes East Ukraine an important piece of the prophetic puzzle will be in focus as West Ukraine will be free to apply for membership into the EU after almost 1000 years.

Awesome.

The Jerusalem Post: “The situation facing European Jewry is “simply intolerable, unacceptable and inexcusable,” Israeli Jewish Congress president Vladimir Sloutsker told MKs and foreign diplomats at a special session of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee on Monday.

Calling the rise in anti-Semitic incidents accompanying Israel’s invasion of Gaza an “SOS situation,” Sloutsker warned that if left unchecked, such behavior could lead to another European genocide.

Jews in Belgium are being asked “why are you killing children in Gaza?”

Opinion: If the world is close to the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27, then Vladimir Sloutsker is right.

He (Antichrist) will confirm a covenant (peace treaty) with many for one ‘seven (7 years). In the middle (42 months) of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”

Daniel’s prophecy indicates that Antichrist will negotiate a temple as part of the peace deal, but halfway through the 7 year period he will cause a second abomination of desolation when he enters the temple and declares himself god.

He will put an end to the reinstituted Jewish practice of animal sacrifice which can only be performed in the temple.

All hell will break loose as the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21) will cause the deaths of two-thirds of both Jews and Gentiles (Zechariah 13:8-9), those who enter the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

By the way, all who accept the pardon that Jesus’ death on a Roman cross provides are not here for that, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18.

1406065699539_cachedThe Daily Beast: “After being issued an ultimatum from ISIS in Mosul, some of the city’s last Christian families have fled, only to be robbed of their last possessions at ISIS checkpoints. Friday at noon was the deadline for Christian families to meet ISIS’s demands:

Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims known as jizya, leave Mosul, or be killed. But the day before the final exodus, Christians were informed jizya was no longer an option. The order came to convert, leave, or die.”

Opinion: There are deep roots in ‘convert or die’, and it is not just Islam.

AD 392: Forced conversion was a major way for the Christianization of the Roman Empire. Emperor Theodosius I decreed that Christianity was the only legal religion of the Roman Empire, and forbid pagan practices by law.

AD 782: Charlemagne, king of the Franks, forcibly Roman Catholicized the Saxons from their native Germanic paganism by way of warfare and law upon conquest.

AD 1088: Pope Urban II called Europe to arms, launching the Crusades and driving 100,000 Christians to descend on the Middle East, eager to spill Muslim blood.

AD 1492: Muslims and Jews were expelled from Spain and in 1497 from Portugal.

It is disturbing how Americans are shocked by news of Christian persecution 13 years after 9/11. The progressive left continues to deny the violence of Muslims, the Pope ignores the plight of Christians, as does the President of the United States.

Muslims are commanded to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation under Muslim  domination.  Allowing people of other faiths to live and worship independently of Islamic rule is not an option.

Qur’an (8:39)“And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism:  i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be  for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping  others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”   Translation from the Noble Quran.

What we are seeing is a preview of Antichrist – accept his mark or be killed, Revelation 13:16-18.
