What Is Putin Doing in Ukraine? He’s Fulfilling Prophecy, That’s What He’s Doing.
For more on this subject…see 2nd War of the Antichrist
Ezekiel 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years [the Endtime] thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. [I have always believed that this verse was speaking of the “Jews” returning to Israel. However, recently I’ve come to suspect otherwise and wondered if this verse could be speaking of another country. I’m often reminded of an analogy David Berg shared in his writings when speaking of Bible prophecy being like a mountain range. He said, “The Prophets looked into the future & saw the coming events like a row of mountaintops. You can see them all at once, like you look at a whole scene at once, but actually, as you travel along, you don’t get to them all at once. As you drive closer & closer, all you can see is the one range right in front of you, it looks like only ONE mountain range.–But when you journey up that mountain & get to the top, some of those mountains that you thought were the same range turn out to be another 20 or 30 miles away! So in the Scriptures these events are kind of mixed up sometimes, just the way the Prophets saw them!” (end of quote)
Over the past few years, the gift of hearing from God in prophecy has become an indispensable ally. I now find myself earnestly “listening” for His voice whilst reading Bible verses. Then, instead of mechanically accepting what I’ve been taught during my life of studying the Word, I listen for His whispers to reveal the hidden treasures of darkness. Much of what we have come to believe as truth today has been passed down through the years by teachers who were yet many miles from the ‘mountain range’; a mountain range that we now have the honor of standing at the foot of. We have come to the very path leading up the mountain of final-hour events. Jesus is right beside us with lamp in hand as we pick our way through the flood of lies spewed out by the dragon through his news media conduit. How can this wicked generation receive a sign other than the sign of Jonah? Oh generation of vipers, full of subtlety and deceit! There will be no sign be given thee but the sign of the Son of Man. As three days passed over the Son of Man in the belly of the earth, so will three years pass over this generation in the belly of the beast.
In respect to this verse, the country of Israel is not a safe place to live today. It is surrounded by enemies and is continually bickering with them, not to mention also frequently tormented by internal discord. Israel is still a mountainous waste with very few resources to speak of. So could this verse possibly be talking about a people coming out of Israel to another more prosperous place? Could it be that the “land of Israel” is country at all but a gathering of people having come out in the latter years, to a more desirable abode?]
Ezekiel 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. [Here we picture the Russian army invading Ukraine.]
Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, [Before the invention of airplanes, towns and villages had walls and barred gates as protection against their enemies. Modern towns and villages have no such thing as they are ineffective against rockets, planes and artillery. Again, as far as this being Israel ..well, she is certainly not dwelling in safety. In fact, the Israelis, in fear of their lives, spend millions every year on military hardware.]
Ezekiel 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. [As you have read, Ukraine is rich in goods, cattle, wheat and natural resources; whereas the country of Israel is as verse 8 declares; always a waste.]
Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? Hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? [There is no great spoil to be had in Israel, but there is a great spoil to be had in Ukraine. I dare say that these verses are talking about another country where the Jews are numbered in their thousands, if not millions. Where did the Jews disperse to? Did they truly go back to what the world calls Israel, or do they in reality have another country that they call spiritual Israel?
And who are these countries numbered here in this verse? Or more importantly, are they in existence today? Sheba and Dedan are the ancient names for Saudi Arabia; Tarshish, according to many historians, is supposed to be Britain, & of course she’s symbolized by a lion. (Gibraltar, which some believe is Biblical Tarshish, is a Royal Air Force station.) All the “young lions” are of course the whelps of the mother lion England. The once-upon-a-time colonies of Australia, Canada, the USA and others are certainly doing just what this verse is implying…they are literally “up in arms” over Russia’s invasion of “greater Israel”, if those behind Zelenskyy would have their way.]
(Notes from the internet of things) ‘Kievan Rus’, the ancient name for the lands that encompass modern day Ukraine lay between the Baltic and Caspian Seas. Have you ever heard of the Kingdom of Kuzari? From roughly the seventh to tenth centuries, the Khazars ruled an empire spanning the steppes between the Caspian and Black Seas. Not much is known about Khazar culture and society: they did not leave a literary heritage and the archaeological finds have been meager. The Khazar Empire was overrun by Svyatoslav of Kiev around the year 969, and little was heard from the Khazars after. Yet a widely held belief that the Khazars or their leaders at some point converted to Judaism persists. (https://www.sciencedaily.com…) Although this history is now being discredited by the “learned elders” perhaps the Bible is telling us a different story.
Daniel 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

UNTIL FINALLY, VERSE 45, “HE SHALL PLANT THE TABERNACLES OF HIS PALACE BETWEEN THE SEAS IN THE GLORIOUS HOLY MOUNTAIN.” HE MAKES JERUSALEM HIS CAPITAL. See, he’s the false messiah & he’s making the false Jerusalem his capital. That Jerusalem is not the Holy City, that Jerusalem is not the Heavenly Jerusalem, that Jerusalem is not the Bride of Christ! We know who the Holy City is & who the Bride of Christ is, don’t we? John describes it in the last couple of chapters of Revelation, describes her & the City.
THAT CITY OF OLD JERUSALEM REVELATION ITSELF SPEAKS OF AS SODOM & GOMORRAH & WHERE ALL THE PROPHETS HAVE BEEN KILLED, INCLUDING JESUS! Revelation 11:8 He makes old Jerusalem virtually symbolic of all the most ungodly cities in the World! That’s not the Holy City! But according to the Jews, their messiah is to take over Jerusalem & rule & reign from Jerusalem,
