UKRAINE – RUSSIA – USA
World War 3?
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
UKRAINE: The headlines sound ominous.
Revolution, protests and uprisings in Ukraine, the Ukrainian president flees to Russia, Russian troops (or Russian-backed Ukrainians, depending upon who one believes) are in the Crimea, Obama is warning Russia, Russia is warning Ukraine: what does all of this chaos mean?
Is this how World War 3 starts?
What does the Bible have to say about the Ukraine?
What does the Bible have to say about World War 3?
Here’s a quick question and answer session with the staff at End Times Prophecy Report on the Ukraine, World War 3 and what the Bible says.
QUESTION: Why is everyone fighting over the Ukraine?
Answer: The Ukraine used to be part of the U.S.S.R. or Soviet Union–which is what Russia used to be called before it became Russia by jettisoning most of the parts that didn’t contain many actual Russians. The Russians, being right next-door to Ukraine, keep a very close eye on the country and its affairs.
Ukraine is not part of NATO, the western military alliance headed by the USA. However, Ukraine has stated that it wants to “integrate” with western Europe. This has set up tensions between those Ukrainians who look west–toward the western democracies and the USA–and those Ukrainians who look east to Russia.
At least that’s what the Corporate Media has been telling us.
QUESTION: Is this how World War 3 starts?
Answers: While it’s possible, it’s unlikely. According to what those who have labored for a New World Order have said, the Third World War will start in the Middle East and spread from there. However, the ones who have worked for the New World Order are notoriously deceptive. So can we believe them? Probably not.
QUESTION: What does the Bible say about all of this?
Answer: The Bible talks of a great war at the end of this present age. This war will kill many people and there will be great bloodshed.
“And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”
During all of the numerous end times wars, judgments and disasters, the Bible says that eventually one-half of the earth’s population will die.
The Bible does not say where this great war will start. (It does say where it will end: at the battle of Armageddon, in the valley of Jezreel at Megiddo, outside of the city of Jerusalem. )
However, the Bible does guarantee that whatever takes place, Jesus will not forsake nor abandon those who believe on His name.
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
—Hebrews 13:5 (ESB)
QUESTION: Are the events in the Ukraine the beginning of the events Revelation 6:4 is referring to?
Answer: Could be. But, Jesus spoke of what would happen leading up to the great cataclysms which would take place immediately before He returned.
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. “
” And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”
The false Christs, the wars and rumors of war, as well as the earthquakes in divers (many) places have been already taking place. Jesus referred to this time as “birth pangs” or “the beginning of sorrows.” It is a time of warning right before end time events of disaster and judgment begin happening. It is a time for people to get right with God.
The Corporate Media has spent the last six or seven years hyping tensions in one hot spot after another. Ukraine–like North Korea, Syria, Israel and Iran and China and Japan before it–appears to be a media-created “rumor of war.”
But at some point, the Bible is clear: the hype stops and the shooting starts. And then things begin to happen quickly.
QUESTION: Does “rumors of war” mean that Ukraine will not have war?
No. Any time armies are invading and chaos breaks out, there is a danger of war –especially in the times in which we live.
But regardless of what does or does not happen in Ukraine, dark times are coming. Regardless of the claims the media, the government or anyone else makes about “prepping,” the Bible says that no amount of physical preparation will enable someone to survive what’s coming upon the earth.
This will not stop men from using their own strength and ingenuity to attempt to prepare for what’s coming.
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
- The boom in luxury underground bomb shelters which can have room for swimming pools, basketball courts and even a private jet
- Bunker mentality: The booming business of Doomsday
- Underground real estate boom: Bomb shelters sales are on the rise
2000 years ago, the Bible foretold that in the last days, men would be building underground bunkers and “dens in mountains” in an attempt to escape what was to come upon the earth. It also foretold that those types of preparations would be utterly useless.
QUESTION: If physical preparation will not save anyone, what can one do?
Once saved, a believer will have the peace which passeth all understanding. Do you have peace of mind? You can.
Regardless of what happens around them, true believers have peace of mind about the future.
There is always a spike in interest in what the Bible says when chaos threatens to overtake the best laid plans of mice and men. When the future appears uncertain, it is easier for men to throw themselves on the mercy of God.
Don’t wait. Don’t delay.
It’s later than you think.
