Russian Invasion of Ukraine and Bible Prophecy
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is not unexpected. End time prophecies of the Bible require that Russia be in control of Ukraine and quite a few other countries too. Western countries have voiced strong opposition to what Russia is doing in taking Ukraine but have stopped short of taking military action. This is also prophesied in the end time prophecies in the Bible book of Ezekiel.
What Russia is doing is a sign that we are approaching the end times – the times of Armageddon but also the times of happiness when Jesus Christ will return and set up God’s kingdom on earth. The Kingdom of God will be a time of unprecedented peace and happiness for all peoples.
This understanding of the prophecies of the Bible is not a recent interpretation in response to the current aggression of Russia. Christadelphians have been presenting these prophecies about Russian aggression in the end times for over a hundred years. This video gives an introduction to a key prophecy about what Russia will do in the end times and what it means for you. For more on this see here and here.
Is Bible Truth important?
Knowing the truth of what the Bible teaches is vitally important. Why?
Because where you will spend eternity depends on whether you know and believe the Truth of the Bible.
Jesus said to his disciples “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation, whoever believes and is baptized
will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:15-16 (ESV)
Therefore understanding what is the Gospel is very important.
If you don’t believe the Truth of the Gospel, you won’t be saved, which means spending eternity in the grave.
Sadly many people believe that the Gospel is limited to the good news about Jesus Christ. But that is not right!
The gospel also includes the good news about the coming kingdom of God. The gospel that Jesus Christ taught was mainly about the Kingdom.
For example: In Matthew 4:23 (ESV) it says that Jesus “went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming
the gospel of the kingdom“. (see also Matt 9:35, 24:14, Mark 1:14)
So what is the Truth about the Gospel? See the Gospel page.
Is the Bible really true?
You may well ask, how can I be sure that the Bible is really true?
Or how can I know whether there really is a God?
Or how can I know that the content of the Bible we have now is the same as what was originally
written thousands of years ago?
God requires we worship him in Truth
The Samaritans religion was a corrupted form of Judaism. Jesus said to one of Samaritan women:
“You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father
in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him“.
See also Josh 24:13
Therefore, for worship to be acceptable to God it needs to be done according to Bible Truth. A summary of Bible Truth is here.
