Analysis

In this post, we will use current events.

 

Outline

  1. Spiritual Leaders
  2. World Leaders
  3. Holy Scripture

Points

Spiritual Leaders

None of the mainline spiritual leaders are saying that conditions as they currently see them are indicative of the Gog and Magog War.

Christianity

Catholic Church
Pope Francis

The Catholic Church’s head, Pope Francis, is not saying so.

In fact, he has reached out to the leaders of both Russia and Ukraine.

He has given his opinions and offered diplomatic channels.

 

Protestant Church

Mainline Protestant denominations remain sanguine and they are being very careful to not draw a quick parallel.

 

World Leaders

United States

Joe Biden

The current POTUS, Joe Biden, has been very deliberative, as well.

The 79-years old man understands the weight of responsibility.

Again, the diplomatic channel is fully open, fluid, and operational between Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Nato, and United States.

 

Israel

Naftali Bennett

The 49-year-old prime minister of Israel has worked tirelessly to help facilitate negotiations between the two states.

Crediting Israel; it has been one of the few countries that enjoy diplomatic ties between the warring states.

Isreal is very thankful for Putin’s and Russia’s help with the Syrian Civil War.

Again, thankfully, that strife was relatively contained and did not spill over unto neighboring middle eastern nations.

 

Holy Scripture

Messiah

  1. Matthew 24:6 – Signs of the End of the Age ( Link )
    • 5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
    • 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come.
    • 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.…

 

Paul, The Apostle

  1. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 – The Man of Lawlessness ( Link )
    • 2 …not to be easily disconcerted or alarmed by any spirit or message or letter seeming to be from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has already come.
      3 Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness— the son of destruction— is revealed.
      4 He will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship. So he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.…
  2. 1st Timothy 4:1 – Warnings against False Teachers ( Link )
    • 1 Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons,
      2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.…

 

Beloved

The Holy Script is very dear and clear.

It clearly states:-

  1. Habits to look for

      • Do not be deceived
    • Alarm
      • Do not be alarmed

      • Famine
      • EarthQuakes
  3. Spiritual Warfare
    • Deceitful Spirits
    • Teaching of Demons
