Could the War in Ukraine be part of the Countdown to Armageddon? Nobody can say for certain but there are indications that this could be Bible prophecy unfolding before our very eyes. The world has changed so much in the last few years and it’s clear there are many formidable forces at work to change life as we knew it. This is not a doom and gloom article though… keep reading to find out why…
Why do I think the world has changed so much? For what reason could the countdown to Armageddon be so much nearer? Consider the world in 2020… People were prophesying a bright season ahead, full of “2020 vision”. Yet within months a pandemic caused worldwide havoc. One of the world’s leading superpowers, America started to unravel, fraught with division. The Bible clearly tells us that a nation divided cannot stand. Subsequently, a chain of events ensued that has resulted in the current war in Ukraine, as Russia and China start to bear their teeth to the “free world” which has lost much of its standing.
We have witnessed things we never thought possible. How could an election possibly be stolen in America of all places? Why would Facebook, which gives us the power of free speech, suddenly try and stop us from even talking about the possibility of electoral fraud? Or consider existing cures for COVID-19 apart from the vaccine rollout? How could America leave Afghanistan so quickly, causing a humanitarian crisis and leaving so much equipment in the hands of the enemy? How could Russia attack its neighbour and risk a new war in Europe?
Yet each of these issues is relevant to the countdown to Armageddon. Armageddon for those unfamiliar with the term is the prophesied final battle of the ages when the armies of the world descend on Israel to destroy the nation God calls His own. At this point Christians expect the Messiah to return to defeat the armies gathered in the Valley of Megiddo. In this way, Israel will be saved and God’s judgement will start to be served upon the nations.
How far are we on the countdown to Armageddon?
This sounds like a million miles away, or a thousand years. Yet everything is starting to align for this to happen… Love him or hate him, could Donald Trump have been used by God to hold back the darkness of the globalist, One World Order agenda? In their eyes, he could do nothing right and it seems they would go to any length to get rid of him. Perhaps for them, the end justified the means. Talking about a stolen election now seems like ‘crying over spilt milk’ – too late to do anything about it. Our ‘friends’ in the global media reassured us that “the election was the freest and fairest ever”… Yet the truth is starting to come to the surface.
Why bother to even talk about the US Election? Because, it seems so clear that a strong leader was replaced by a weak one. Has this emboldened Russia and China. Vladimir Putin to move ahead with an evil plan of restoring the USSR, and Xi Jinping to clamp down on Taiwan? Have the restrictions of the global pandemic laid the foundation for entire populations to be controlled?
Listening to two podcasts put things in perspective for me. The one is the Charlie Kirk show, where Charlie was discussing the latest revelations to come out of Wisconsin on election fraud… These seem to implicate Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook. From listening to this podcast you will hear how improbable it was for Joe Biden to have won the election legitimately. How could he have secured more votes than Barrack Obama, and lost in Florida and Iowa and yet still won the Election? Something that has never happened before. You will also hear how elderly people were targeted, and how so many care homes reported a 95 to 100% voter turnout which is far in excess of the national average. You will hear how people who were unable to even talk still somehow voted….
Of course, the mainstream or ‘lamestream’ news outlets will not pick up on this, nor will they report about the millions of dollars that Mark Zuckerberg poured into key cities. Could this explain why Facebook was hypersensitive to any allegations of voter fraud? Could they be part of the election steal all along?
Another Podcast that gives immediate cause for concern is Bible in the News. In their latest episode they report on prophecies about the Rise of Russia in the Last Days and how they believe it will subdue the whole of Europe. Now I am not sure everything they say is correct, especially since this is produced by Christadelphians who differ from mainstream Christianity in various ways. The most important factor is that they don’t believe in the Trinity. However their Bible in News podcast makes for fascinating listening and I like to listen to multiple sources and come to my own conclusions, as I hope you do.
Of course, hearing that Russia will ultimately take over the entire European continent is not the news any European wants to hear, as it gives little hope for Ukraine. Many have taught that the antichrist will come out of a revived European empire… This podcast suggests that Russia is the revived Eastern wing of the Roman empire and will become the final world superpower. While I disagree on Christadelphian theology on the trinity, the Scriptural backing they provide for this assertion is persuasive.
The mind boggles considering all that is going on in the world right now. We know we are living in the End Times, and we as believers have the only real message of hope to a world in dire need. Let us, therefore, cast aside all the works of darkness and put on God’s armour of light and of love in these evil days. Nobody else can hold back the darkness as we can. Nobody else can petition Heaven for more time, for the mercy of God upon the earth like the Church of Jesus Christ. It seems our prayers for Ukraine have slowed down the Russian invasion. Their ‘special military operation’ is taking longer than they expected. Lord give this world more time, for Christians to get right with you, to share the message of salvation with those who are perishing, to bring hope to the hopeless. Lord you have promised that the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world before the End comes. We know the countdown to Armageddon has begun, but Lord give us more time.
“The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armour of right living.” (Romans 13:12)
As believers let us be ever watchful and prayerful.
