    Have a friend from the Ukraine, sister in Christ, who also has a sister there with several kids. All are Believers. The sister in Ukraine said that they've been pretty scared and praying constantly for God's protection.

    She also shared that many, many Ukrainians are coming to the prayer tents set up by Christians where coffee is served and also Gideon Bibles being distributed. The Ukrainians totally bypass the coffee wanting, more than anything, bibles and are also being saved!! She said that there is a revival happening there. People are wanting to understand what's going on and why and the Christians there are able to explain things, sounds like also the prophetic implications.

    My friend also confirmed that there is a Christian pastor as interim leader. He was unanimously requested to take the position, did not pursue it and had asked God to be in charge of it all. As interim leader he is removing all leadership that is communist and putting in place good people.

    I let her know that there are many people aware and praying for the situation in Ukraine, my friend was very, very grateful to hear of this and it really comforted her heart and brightened her face immediately.

    She says thanks so much for your prayers. :-)

    This is an interesting story which provides a decent historical summary of the region and history:

    I still remember the day You saved me
    The day I heard You call out my name
    You said You loved me and would never leave me
    And I’ve never been the same!

    That was very interesting to read:

    From the 15th century, the dominant Muslim power was the Turkish Ottoman Empire, which ruled over millions of Christians—Armenians, Greeks, Slavs, and others. As Ottoman power crumbled, European Christian nations pressed hard on its shrinking borders, annexing its territory. From the 1770s, the main predator was Orthodox Russia, which soon established its control of the Black Sea region and pushed into the Caucasus. The Russians also demanded and won the right to protect the holy places, which were to be under Orthodox supervision.
    Through the 19th century, even seemingly rational and cynical Russian statesmen maintained this concept of the messianic nation, destined to defend Orthodoxy against Muslims and Catholics alike. Nothing would prevent that empire from freeing Christians in the Balkans and then extending its power over Anatolia, Syria, and Palestine. The words of Pseudo-Daniel still guided Russian actions in 1914.
    Tsarist power is long gone, and the Soviet regime that succeeded it had no time for mystical visions. Yet, as that Soviet idea perished in its turn, Russians have turned once more to the religious roots of national ideology. Post-Soviet regimes have worked intimately with the Orthodox Church, which has been happy to support strong government and to consecrate national occasions. In return, the state has helped the church rebuild Orthodox cathedrals and monasteries aplenty. For 20 years now, both state and church have even labored to reconstruct the once potent Russian presence in the holy places themselves, now of course under Israeli political control

    Why are we surprised to see this new holy Russia extend its protecting arm over the Christian-backed Ba'athist regime in Syria? Russian regimes have been staking a claim to guard that region's Christians for 250 years.

    It would be pleasant to think that the U.S. and Europe are taking these religious factors into full account as they calculate their response to the present crisis in Crimea and Ukraine. Pleasant, but unlikely.

    How does Russia treat true Christians, like those of us on this forum? Would they protect us, or persecute us for not being part of the state church?

    Russian (Gog) prophecy will one day be fulfilled. Israel wild animal jackal population is ever increasing. (Ezekiel 39:4) *Advertisement

    http://www.carmelbirdingtours.com/ Some 500 million birds fly over Israel each year.

    Shows the rapture can happen anytime before Gog's forces attack Israel. God has wrath in Ezekiel 38:19. God has not appoined us to wrath. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 If the ravenous birds and wild animal populations are increasing in Israel, the pre-Gog wars must be on the horizon and the rapture can not be so far away.

    With Crimean appeal, Putin goes head-to-head with West over Ukraine

    Almost certainly orchestrated by Vladimir Putin, Crimea's appeal to join Russia pits the president directly against the West in a standoff that has increasingly high stakes and unpredictable consequences.

    The vote by Crimea's parliament gives Putin the upper hand in the crisis over Ukraine, but risks antagonizing pro-Western leaders in Kiev who have refused to resort to military action or fan tensions in Ukraine's Russian-speaking south and east.

    "We are at a very dangerous point, and it threatens to push a political crisis in the direction of a military situation," said former Kremlin spin doctor Gleb Pavlovsky.

    Russia says there will be no war with Ukraine

    Russia's assembly speaker denounces conflict between "two brotherly nations," says Crimean parliament has right to referendum, to be held March 16.

    There will be no war between Russia and Ukraine, the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said on Friday.

    "It's complete nonsense, it absolutely does not reflect our intentions, the feelings of empathy and the pain we feel for the Ukrainian people," said Valentina Matviyenko, head of the Russian Federation Council.

    "We are absolutely sure that there will never be a war between the two brotherly nations."

    Russia, US still far apart on Ukraine, says Putin

    Amid the worst crisis in US-Russia relations since the Cold War, Obama and Putin say ties between the two countries should not be sacrificed.

    President Vladimir Putin said Russia and the United States still stood far apart over Ukraine, but the two countries should not sacrifice relations over a disagreement on an individual, albeit very important, international problem.

    In a statement issued by the Kremlin on Friday, the Russian leader told US President Barack Obama in a telephone call on Thursday that Ukraine's new leaders, who had come to power in an anti-constitutional coup, had imposed "absolutely illegitimate decisions on the eastern, southeastern and Crimea regions".

    Here's What Obama Said to Putin During Their Hour-Long Phone Call

    President Obama warned Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone today that his country's intervention in the Crimean Peninsula is in violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

    Obama urged Putin during an hour-long phone call this afternoon to embrace a diplomatic resolution "which addresses the interests of Russia, the people of Ukraine, and the international community," according to the White House.

    "As a part of that resolution, the governments of Ukraine and Russia would hold direct talks, facilitated by the international community; international monitors could ensure that the rights of all Ukrainians are protected, including ethnic Russians; Russian forces would return to their bases; and the international community would work together to support the Ukrainian people as they prepare for elections in May," the White House said.

    Ukraine says Russian troops in Crimea have doubled to 30,000

    Published: 03.07.14, 14:38 / Israel News

    Russia now has 30,000 troops in Ukraine's Crimea region, Ukrainian border guards said on Friday, nearly twice the previous figure given by the government in Kiev.

    Serhiy Astakhov, aide to the head of border guards service, told Reuters the figure was an estimate and included both troops that had arrived since last week and Russia's Black Sea Fleet, permanently based in the Crimean port of Sevastopol. (Reuters)

    These signs are becoming ominous that Russia means business. Not sure where this is all going but I'd be confident in stating that Russia has no plan whatsoever in giving up Crimea.

    IMHO God is working here. I am amazed how peaceful this whole process of Russia taking over this entire country. Russia needs the country to bring its troops down to Israel's north mountains to fulfill Gods word in Ezekiel. It is occurring as we breath. Should be interesting how soon the entire Ukraine county side is taken over. The leaders in the world are just sitting back and watching just as they will say when gog comes down to Israel to take a spoil.Ezekiel 38:13. Incredible times we are living. Just amazing to know Gods plan before it happens. Praise God for His prophetic word as we watch.
    The word was made flesh = Jesus John 1:14

    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
    In the world ye will have tribulation but be of good cheer;
    I have overcome the world. John 16:33 Halleluiah!!!

    Putin wants sanctions for the Russian people will rally around the Russian leader and Putin can cut off natural gas to Europe at anytime. Putin is waiting for Ukraine to unravel into ethnic tribal areas for his future take over of the Ukraine. The Ukraine will fall into Gog's alliance before Gog invades Israel.

    Gog trying to unite so many different groups of people together Orthodox and Muslim will later work against Gog as they will show their ethnic hatreds and draw their weapons upon each other. (Ezekiel 38:21)

    So... as we're watching more pieces come into place for Ezekiel 38-39, there doesn't seem to be quite as much going on in terms of Psalm 83/Isaiah 17. Or does it just appear that way due to media bias?

    What will it take to get Ethiopia and Libya added to the Ezekiel coalition? It seems that the EU/NATO are working hard on building relations with Libya at the moment... and I'm not sure what (if anything) is happening in Ethiopia.

    Foreign Affairs: Does America have to take sides in the Ukrainian crisis? | JPost | Israel News

    (1) President XXX wanted us to fight Syrian president Assad's forces. Had American forces struck Assad forces Al-Qaeda would have made tremendous gains on the battlefield.

    (2) XXX is a Marxist and Russian president Putin is a Marxist. There is no reason for XXX to take sides since XXX in his first Christmas at the White House had ornaments with Chinese Marxist Mao face on them.

    (3) President XXX supporting Ukrainian nationalist? Over 22% of the Ukrainian nationists are neo-Nazis and the movement is growing.

    (4) There is no real reason for the western nations to militarily intervene Putin figures in his actions taking place in the Crimea.

    Psalms 83 territories like Hezbollah and Hamas are being armed right now. Iran is using all proxy connections hoping these forces will fight Israel so Iran can continue building nuclear weapons.

    The prophecies are falling into place. Witnessing about Jesus Christ and the coming rapture should take top priority as we see these events unfolding in front of our very own eyes.

    Would not the rapture anytime in the future strengthen Russia's quest to formulate the new Russian empire?

    (1) Rapture (2) Russia arises (3) Russia falls (4) God name is magnified (Ezekiel 38:23) (5) Israel praises God (Ezekiel 39:22) (6) False Christ appears (7) Temple construction and completion (8) Anti-Christ blasphemies God (Revelation 13:6) and those in heaven in the temple. (2 Thessalonians 2:4) (9) Those coming to proclaim Jesus Christ are beheaded for their testimony (Revelation 20:4) (10) Anti-Christ and false prophet thrown in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20) (11) Jesus Christ reigns on earth for 1,000 years. (Revelation 20:4) The devil thrown into the Lake of Fire. (Revelation 20:10) (12) The new heaven and earth is created for eternity. (Revelation 21:1)

    Just my opinion in the stream of prophetic developments.

    Remember this is just a drill nothing more -

    Pentagon confirms report of Russian air defense drills
    Published March 07, 2014

    Russia has reportedly begun large-scale air defense drills as tensions with the West continue escalating over the fate of Crimea.

    Roughly 3,500 troops and more than 1,000 units of military hardware will be hosted for about a month in Kapustin Yar, some 280 miles east of the Ukrainian border. The exercise by Russia’s Western Military District, according to a report from RIA Novosti, will culminate with live-firing drills and deployment of air defense systems.

    It is for the first time that all air defense units from the district, including coastal defenses of the Northern Fleet, have gathered in one place,” district spokesman Col. Oleg Kochetkov said, adding that the drills were part of regular training cycles. “It is the largest-ever exercise held by air defense units of the Western Military District.”
