US Election

The year 2022 was a time of more political conflict as the United States ends more divided. Inflation is at the highest levels in forty years increasing interest rates and uncertainty in the financial markets. The Supreme Court decision on abortion had an influence on younger women voters. The Republicans ripple took nine seats and now control the House by four seats but Democrats gained one seat in the Senate. This guarantees gridlock and slows legislation except when both parties agree. As the 2024 presidential campaign begins, there will be more politics and less governing.

He [God] has made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times appointed, and the bounds of their habitation (Acts 17:26).

Live with the End in Mind

There is a reason world events are aligning to prophecy in this decade. Jesus Christ was born ~7-1 BC and died ~27-33 AD, then ~2027-2033 could be the Second Coming. So the years ~2019-2026 is a possible seven year rapture window as God prepares Christians for heaven and the world for seven years of Tribulation, within the margin of calendar errors. Since we are at the end of the Church Age, work but also watch for Jesus Christ to rapture His people.

Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11).

About this time of year, we remember what happened in the previous year and look forward to the new year. A part of remembering the past year is to learn from our successes and failures. Then we change priorities, make improvements and plan for success in the coming year.

Since September 2019, we have been in a possible seven year window before the final seven as God prepares Christians for heaven and the world for the Tribulation.

Russia-Ukraine War - Red Russia vs Black Globalists

The Russian-Ukrainian War points to many prophecies. In 1994, Ukraine agreed to destroy nuclear weapons but Russia, United Kingdom and United States reneged on their promise to keep out of Ukraine. In 2014, President Viktor Yanukovych, backed by Red Russia in the election, was ousted by the pro-European movement, backed by the black globalists. See Seals. Russian President Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea on March 20, 2014 (Purim) and supported rebels in the eastern provinces of Ukraine. The European Union, dependent on Russian energy, complained and kicked Russia out of NATO. The opposite of "Peace through Strength" is "War through Weakness".

2nd Seal - Red Horse of War
: There went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
3rd Seal - Black Horse of Trade
: I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a [denarius], and three measures of barley for a [denarius]; and see you hurt not the oil and the wine (Revelation 6:3-4, 5-6).
Russia-Ukraine War Continued

On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine, escalating the war. What side are we on? The Russian bear is back to its old Soviet ways. They fight to keep their oil and gas monopoly with the EU. The globalists (German, United Kingdom, United States) use Ukraine as a pawn. See Daniel's Dream. Since Ukraine's independence, their government has been corrupt and now their people suffer from Russian aggression while western countries' energy imports and weapon exports fund both sides of the war.

The beast [European Union] which I saw was like a leopard [Germany], and his feet were of a bear [Russia], and his mouth of a lion [United Kingdom]. And I saw one of his [seven] heads [or nations-Germany] as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast (Revelation 13:2-3).

The fallout of the war is an energy and food crisis. Russia supplies ~45 percent of EU, ~55 percent of Germany and ~8 percent of US oil and natural gas imports but Russian exports to the EU dropped ~80 percent. Climate change supporters use this crisis to rid the world of fossil fuels. Ukraine is 14th in energy reserves and supplies ~10-15 percent of wheat, corn and barley which caused prices to rise and potential famine in poorer countries.

How does this tug of war end? The Bible tells us that the Russian bear will unite with the United Kingdom lion and the German leopard (Revelation 13:2-3). Georgia and Ukraine are previews of Israel's war. Israel is exporting natural gas to the EU, which requires a Russian response. When Antichrist begins his rule, Russia joins with a radical Islamic and usurps his authority by attacking Israel (Ezekiel 37-38). See Ukraine: EU vs Russia.

At the time of the end shall the king of the south [Radical Islam] push at him [Antichrist]: and the king of the north [Russia] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter into the glorious land [Israel], and many countries shall be overthrown. (Daniel 11:40, 41).

There is better way. Jesus said, My kingdom is not of this world (Joshua 5:13-15, John 18:36). At the end of the Tribulation, all nations fall and Jesus Christ reigns (Matthew 25:31-32).
US Supreme Court

The Supreme Court decided a few important cases. Despite an early leak, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization agreed with a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks and overturned Roe v. Wade's right to an abortion as unconstitutional. Abortion is sent back to each state to resolve. In Washington State, a football coach at a public high school has the right to pray at the 50-yard line after his team's games. In Maine, a tuition program excluding religious schools violated the free exercise of religion. The court rejected the Biden administration's COVID vaccine mandate for employers but allowed it for health care workers.

Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Will you then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and you shall have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to you for good (Romans 13:3).

Israel Election

Since April 2019, the Israeli parliament has been stuck by their broken election system. In March 2021 leftist Yair Lapid and religious right Naftali Bennett ousted Benjamin Netanyahu until their liberal coalition fell apart. November 2022 was the fifth election with forty parties running and ten parties winning seats. Netanyahu is back for a record third time with secular and religious conservatives. The covenant peace treaty and nuclear Iran are two key issues. Israel needs a strong leader to prepare for the Tribulation. God's plan brings Israel back to their land and gives them new hearts. 

I [God] will take you [Israel] from among the heathen, gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. A new heart will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God (Ezekiel 36:24, 26, 28).
