Is Putin Fulfilling End-Times Prophecy With Invasion of Ukraine?

Few understand that the wars of the 21st century have been economic wars, media wars, ideological wars and ultimately proxy wars—virtual and invisible. By the time the war is won or lost, democracies respond and are, in essence, irrelevant.

Russian President Vladmir Putin has fought an economic war and he's won. The price of oil has skyrocketed thanks to Putin. He is making hundreds of billions of dollars of profit off of this Ukrainian crisis. Whatever sanctions are put on Putin will be minor compared to the profits he's making and will continue to make if he presses Ukraine harder.

Putin has also won an ideological war. He has become perceived as the most powerful leader on the planet at this present moment. He has control of virtually all the media and the governments of the world as they submit in an attempt to appease him.

But perhaps the biggest takeaway is that the 2021 proportion is double the 3.5% who called themselves part of the LGBTQ community in 2012.

Emerald Robinson, beloved and photogenic star of the White House Press Room, has not only a polished, professional demeanor but the boldness of the anointing of Jesus—a tough combination to beat, even by a liberal administration.

Born in a small coal-mining town in Virginia to a father who was both a coal miner and a Pentecostal pastor, Emerald has a word for believers living in tough times where it appears evil has overtaken the country.
