Putin’s Moves Toward War in Ukraine Show How Dangerous He Has Become

Antiochus Epiphanes & Putin even look the same!

A common claim among experts in Russian politics is that the Kremlin “has many towers.” It is meant to suggest a kind of pluralism in the chambers of power in Moscow, with rival camps of liberals and hawks, oligarchs and generals, pulling the President toward fringe positions, which his decisions balance out. As he marches ever closer toward a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has shattered that view of the Kremlin. He showed that he has no real advisers left — only sycophants — and that his own views are as extreme as any of theirs. But that system has now shrunk into the space between Putin’s ears, a space inscrutable and often terrifying even for the people closest to him.
As one longtime Kremlin insider describes Putin’s thinking in the recent TIME cover story about the crisis in Ukraine,

“The world inside his head is only his own.”

And that makes Putin far more dangerous for the world the rest of us inhabit. After his meeting with the Security Council, Putin gave a speech that laid out the rationale for an invasion of Ukraine. The Russian President claimed that Ukraine’s very existence was a historical mistake.

Vladimir Putin – Appeal to the citizens of Russia.

The full Biblical title of Putin is this – King of the north, latter day Antiochus Epiphanes, Gog of the land of Magog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Daniel 8:23-25 describe him. And Daniel 11:36-39 describe him.

The detail is amazing and can only correspond to this man.

We now see someone like the last king of the north – Antiochus Epiphanes. He was known as the “mad man”. He also invaded Israel in the same way Putin will one day.

We are told he is fierce looking, a master of intrigue, successful in whatever he does, causes a shocking amount of destruction, causes deceit to prosper, a master of deception, arrogant, magnified in his own eyes, does what he wants, not interested in women, worships the god of forces, loves money and riches, works in a stronghold (Kremlin means stronghold!), rewards those who submit to him. It is Putin.

Thus shall he [Gog / Putin] do [work] in the most strong holds [Kremlin] with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he will honor those who submit to him, appointing them to positions of authority and dividing the land among them as their reward. (Daniel 11:39 last sentence from the NLT version)

If we are right and Putin is Gog then remarkably we are told in Daniel 8 that this very man will

“also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”.

Ezekiel 38 says he will be destroyed by fire and brimstone on the mountains of Israel. The return of Christ therefore must be close…

And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. (Ezekiel 38:22)

This is the end of Gog – he will succeed in all he does until this point…
