"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
A very sad and unnecessary event, and, it will not stop here with Ukraine. So who will be next?
As I recall, the overthrow (8 years ago) of the pro-Russian government from Ukraine was to prevent Putin's Eurasian Union from acquiring that country. No one at that time argued against that overthrow except Russia. So, now we are seeing the continuation of that objection with Russia resetting a deposed pro-Russian government. They were standing upon a good argument that should have been successfully addressed. That the overthrow was illegal at that time. However, no one wanted to listen and the situation was unresolvable in the eyes of Russia. So, now it is being resolved through military action.
And as these things go, once the military machine begins moving then it does not want to stop. It will not stop with Ukraine but role forward from here to the world stage.
The Lord's blessings to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! Just want you all to know that I pray for you consistently. For all of our brothers and sisters who are in the regions where battles are raging, I pray the Lord will protect you, comfort you, provide for your needs, strengthen you in body and spirit, supply you mightily with the peace that passes all understanding, give you wisdom and knowledge and a word from Him to guide you in all you face. My heart goes out to you and my prayers go up for you. The Lord be with you eternally.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. (Psalm 119:148)
Watching one of the hosts talking to a retired general on Fox News today, one of them made a point that perked my ears a little. Something about how Putin seems like he's suddenly become a different person as for as being a "logical" world leader. Like a switch has been flipped. I feel like the Holy Spirit is telling me this may be the time.
For many years we have watched for this unfolding; the hidden beginning of the end.
I was thinking of Rev. 13:4 today, that fits Ukraine's fall perfectly. Who can make war with Russia? No One!!!
So, Russia makes it's move on Ukraine and this will be followed by some other move on someone else. And, Rev. 13:3, the world will wonder after the beast; Russia. At this point no one can stop it's movement forward to nullify Europe and the United States.
Did you see how fast our ships exited the Mediterranean? And this was over some airplanes that they moved into Syria.
Where is our back bone. Oh, yes, we are a nation without God on our side. Because, if we had God on our side why would we have ran from the threat. Like, did David run? No! But he went forward with confidence in his God; the God of Israel.
But we are not secure in the confidence of our Savior. As a nation that is. And we run in the face of danger. We are cowards as a nation.
Stand strong in the confidence of the Lord. Is our testimony so weak that we can only watch the fall of Ukraine. We should be ashamed of ourselves. Our nation is gone to other gods and ripe for destruction.
How could we have left Ukraine to stand alone in the face of danger. It is shameful.

What is Really Going on in Ukraine? An Alternative Scenario By Larry Johnson Published February 28, 2022 at 7:00am 1460 Comments
Some believe this indicates Putin’s troops are bogged down and making little progress. But I think there is an alternative explanation. First, Russia has not deployed its most sophisticated weaponry. It remains in place in Russia on the Ukrainian border but showing no signs as of this writing of being activated. Second, little attention is being paid to eastern Ukraine where the bulk of the Ukrainian Army is deployed. Jacob Dreizin offers some important insight on this:
You won’t hear this on CNN, but Putin’s Army of Darkness, in the most complex and ambitious ground maneuver operation since World War 2, following the Soviet “deep war” playbook, is also working on cutting off the Ukrainian army group in the Donbass from Kiev. This is by far the most capable (or only capable) large portion of the Ukrainian army. Yesterday, its main reserves of diesel fuel were destroyed from the air. It will soon be cut off and immobile.

Once that happens, the entire Donbass front collapses (they will no longer have a “front”), and BILLIONS of dollars in U.S.-funded or U.S.-supplied weaponry will be captured almost without a battle. (To be clear, it’s almost all U.S. funded or supplied—even most of the Soviet vintage stuff was bought and shipped in from Poland, Czechia, etc. by the CIA, “off the books” but well documented in videos of tank trains crossing the border into Ukraine, in 2015-2016.)
The Russians have finally entered Kharkov, Ukraine’s second largest city, very close to the Russian border. Previously, they had bypassed it the same way that America bypassed every town in southern Iraq to reach Baghdad in 2003. On Saturday night, they finally wasted all significant, organized resistance with a rain of thermobaric death in the outskirts. Today, they started to go in and mop up. Of course, it’s not a job for one day.
The Ukrainian army is falling back (mostly in organized fashion) throughout the Donbass. They have largely evacuated Mariupol, a very pro-Russian, major steelmaking and steel-shipping center (responsible for billions of dollars in exports) on the Sea of Azov. The sole garrison in Mariupol is now said to be the Azov regiment, a group of bona fide, tattooed Nazis—you know, your typical Ukrainian democracy guys, the ones the MSM doesn’t tell you about, and our State Department prefers to ignore. The kind of guys you must use to garrison a pro-Russian city that hates you.
The “real” army looks to be falling back to Dnepropetrovsk, about 60 miles west of Donetsk, if the Russians don’t cut them off—that’s now the big “if.” Either way, they’ll get hit badly from the air.
They are leaving behind lots of brand spanking new, British and American weaponry. I wish I had time to make a photo collage for you. It turns out, the stuff doesn’t work well. Among other things, you have to charge the battery on those Javelins or whatever. No charge, no fire. No one told them. I guess they had so many dumped on them, it was not realistic to plug them all into the wall, and sit there and wait. I can relate, I don’t even like waiting to charge one new smartphone.
The Ukrainian Air Force, what is left of it, is now flying on Helen Keller terms. It seems that Ukraine combat aircraft rely on ground controlled radar to conduct air to air intercepts. Guess what the Russians obliterated in the first hours of their invasion on Wednesday? If you said, “ground controlled radar” you are a winner.
Without that radar the Russians have air superiority. They have castrated the Ukrainians’ ability to provide close air support and disrupt Russian air cover. They are flying blind (if they are flying and can find an operational air field.) Then there are the lines of communication for the Ukrainian Army. Critical military fuel dumps are on fire and the ability of the Ukrainian Army to keep their tanks and trucks running is slipping away.

This perhaps explains the volte face of Zelensky in being willing to sit down with the Russians and try to negotiate an end to the evisceration of Ukraine’s military capability.
Putin Announces Total Independence from ‘Rothschild-Controlled’ US Dollar
Putin Announces Total Independence from ‘Rothschild-Controlled’ US Dollar Tap News / Weaver
In a statement about the news, Mr. Putin said his country is finally free from the “icy grip” of the Rothschild banking cartel and New World Order cabal.
Two years previous, President Putin prohibited Jacob Rothschild and his New World Order banking cabal from operating in Russian territory “under any circumstances.”
Now, following his current election success, Putin has vowed to continue “unburdening” Russia’s economy from the dangerous monopoly of the US dollar in order to guarantee Russian sovereignty in an increasingly globalized world.
Addressing the Russian Parliament following his inauguration, Vladimir Putin said that stating “total independence” from the worldwide banking cartel and Rothschild global money providing organizations would be the “biggest gift” he could provide to future generations.
“We used to behave naïvely, but now we see that the WTO [the World Trade Organization] rules are all too often broken, the restrictions are imposed for political reasons, which they call sanctions. Plus more and more of them are imposed to secure its favorite competitive advantages,” Putin said.
Biden Administration Kills Israel-to-Europe Gas Pipeline in yet another gift to Russia’s energy sector By Geller Report Staff - on February 28, 2022 Latest News
Facebook Twitter Google+
Few in the mainstream media are reporting on this terrible decision made by the Biden Administration. Biden killing the Israel-to-Europe pipeline was another gift to Russia’s energy sector by the Biden Administration. The EastMed pipeline would have enabled Israel to export natural gas to mainland Europe by way of Greece and Cyprus. Thereby reducing Europe’s dependence on Russia for it’s energy needs. The Biden Administration new this but killed it anyway, at the behest of John Kerry and the environmentalist radicals. Once again, the Biden Administration is a dangerous joke. Watch former U.S envoy to Israel David Friedman’s statements below. It’s a must watch.
Obama's giveaway: Oil-rich islands to Russia Exclusive: Joe Miller sounds alarm over deal to put land in hands of Putin's Kremlin WND Staff By WND Staff Published February 16, 2012 at 7:55pm
By Joe Miller
The Obama administration, despite the nation's economic woes, effectively killed the job-producing Keystone Pipeline last month. The Arab Spring is turning the oil production of Libya and other Arab nations over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Iraq is distancing itself from the U.S. And everyone recognizes that Iran, whose crude supplies are critical to the European economy, will do anything it can to frustrate America's strategic interests. In the face of all of this, Obama insists on cutting back U.S. oil potential with outrageous restrictions.
Part of Obama's apparent war against U.S. energy independence includes a foreign-aid program that directly threatens my state's sovereign territory. Obama's State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin.

The Biden-Harris administration on Monday reportedly began weighing the closure of a Michigan oil pipeline while gas prices have tripled since 2020.
The administration is considering a request from 12 federally recognized tribes to cancel the 78-year-old Line 5 oil pipeline, the Daily Mail reported. The pipeline is owned by a Canadian company named Enbridge.
Enbridge is already fighting multiple state and federal court battles to keep the pipeline open. According to Detroit News, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has already “revoked and terminated Enbridge’s easement with the state last fall and ordered a Line 5 shutdown by the spring, which the company is resisting.”
The tribes sent a letter to the Biden-Harris administration Friday to request their “help” in terminating an “existential threat to our treaty-protected rights, resources, and fundamental way of life.”
The tribes also called on President Biden to honor his campaign promise to “protect… fundamental interests.”
They argue the oil pipeline infringes on the 1836 Treaty of Washington, “which ceded Ojibwe and Odawa lands in Michigan in exchange for fishing, hunting and gathering rights on the treaty territory.” But Jason Hayes, director of environmental policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, believes canceling the pipeline would violate an agreement with Canada that allows the pipeline to flow between the two North American countries.

What is going on with Putin? Has God put "hooks in the jaws" of him? Is satan influencing him more directly? Many people that have dealt with him and/or studied him are saying that he is behaving very differently than in the past. This whole aggression seems unnecessary to us, but necessary to God.
The nuke talk seems to be just threatening bluster. It would be totally irrational to nuke Ukraine or any NATO bordering nations. You would destroy the very countries you're trying to take over with nuclear fallout. What about the USA? I'm sure he'd like to, but that's madness. It would certainly cause mutually assured destruction. Has he become that irrational?
Misery loves company. Thus, Russia will consider making many nations miserable due to their (those nation's) interference in Ukraine. As far as Russia is concerned, Ukraine is a vassal state and subject to their domination. A nuke here or there is a reasonable price to pay to get everyone on the same playing field of honoring Russia, they consider. The ones to watch out for are the submarine nukes lurking in the oceans. I saw once, as I stood upon a submarine in a dream, the coastline riddled with nuclear explosions. Henry Gruver saw a similar thing in his "I saw Russia attack the United States" vision. This thing with Russia is very dangerous; to laugh at his 4,000 nukes is not realizing the danger that the world is in. He now has no option but to return to communism from wince he came. The cold war is back on and it is going hot very soon.
yardstick: @ew, re: US economy - it wont, but the pandemic is irrelevant. It has more to do with demographics. We have about 5 years of inflation before things calm down.

yardstick: @ew, re: annexing ukraine - it was never about annexing them when they proved intractable. Now it is only about razing the entire country to the ground and making it unliveable - no infrastructure. Then on to Warsaw, Bucharest, and Lithuania...
