JD: There is this problem that’s going on between Russia and the European Union. What is the bases of that? And this is key as we look at future events and the two major super powers when we go into the tribulation period I’m talking about the European Union and Russia of course with their alignment there in the Middle East. Is this part of setting the stage or is there real political animosity between these two different factions?
JR: The Russian’s government and the tensions with the European Union have been great through the years. The European Parliament at one time was nearly, I believe it was close to ten percent at the time communist. So, we have political spectrum in Europe which is very wide. In the United States we have contention between Republican and Democrat this is the vast majority of the political alignment of thought. On European standards that would actually be pretty narrow.
So, Russia has had into European politics and of course there’s been tension through the years with NATO and with the Russian republics even the fact of Crimea it was annexed to Ukraine in 1950s and then again that’s become a major issue of the expansionism of Russia that’s right now. So, they do see their self you know in terms of a new Cold War I believe that there are elements that are there that have never passed away. But countries have their own interest and leaders have their own interest.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The Russian spy that was poisoned in Great Britain brought to the world’s attention the growing tensions between the European Union member states and the Russian political hierarchy. Theresa May the Prime Minister of Great Britain accusing President Putin of Russia of an act of assassination.
Many European Union nations and even the United States have come out against Russia. This tension is absolute evidence of two super powers vying for leadership in our world today. This scenario was foretold in Bible prophecy. There will be these two super powers in the coming tribulation. The European Union will become the revived Roman Empire that’s Daniel 7:7 & 8 and Russia the Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38:2. This European Union Russian tension is a precursor to the end of times scenario that can be found in God’s word.
