During these events in Ukraine, many people are asking whether this crisis has anything to do with Bible prophecy. Pastor Greg Laurie gives his answer:

We’re all aware of what’s happening over in the Ukraine right now. They’re under attack from Russia, and people have asked the question, “Is there any significance to all of this prophetically?” Let me pull the camera back and say this: I believe we’re living in the last days. I believe Christ could come back at any moment.

There are signs of the times the Bible tells us to be looking for. And in fact, Jesus likened it to labor pains in a woman who’s ready to give birth, the idea being the closer they get together, the closer you are to the birth. And as we see more signs—more things happening—they’re reminding us Christ is coming back again.

Right now there under attack from Russia and people about the question. Is there any significance to all of this prophetically. Let me pull the camera back and say this I believe were living in the last days. I believe Christ could come back at any moment. There are signs of the times. The Bible tells us to be looking for and in fact Jesus likened it to labor pains in a woman who's ready to give birth.

The idea being the closer they get together.

The closer you are to the birth and as we see more signs were things happening there reminding us Christ is coming back again. Let's go to Matthew 24. What did Jesus say in the last days will be wars and rumors of wars, so this is war and the scale we have not seen in a long time, but let me look at another thing in Matthew 24 that talks about plagues being about us around this in the last days.

If the coronavirus is not a plague. I don't know what it is a global plague. Also I would add that the Bible warns of a world leader that will common and dominate to deceive people ultimately but ultimately reveal his true colors and is called the antichrist. I believe a lot of this government overreach imposing themselves on their people is a sign of what is going to come later when antichrist emerges on the scene. Let's come to the situation in the Ukraine. So many Bible scholars believe in Ezekiel 38 as it speaks of Magog attacking Israel that that is modern-day Russia. I could go talk about there for an old 30 minutes. Why they believe that's true. I happen to agree with them but it says in Ezekiel that the Jewish people will be scattered and re-gathered in our land. Again, we know during World War II. After the Holocaust. Jewish people from around the planet begin to return to their land in Israel officially became a nation.

On May 14, 1948. So that part of the prophecy has been fulfilled. Then Scripture says a nation from the extreme north of Israel will march on her called Gog and Magog. If you look on any map you'll see that is the geographical area of Russia, Ukraine, used to be a part of the Russian Empire. They broke up in 1991. Are they good to be part of Russia again could be with the one thing that I think of is when I see the aggression of Russia or Magog if you will. It's a reminder that that's organist see when Magog attacks Israel.

So Jesus said when you see these things begin to happen freak out because your dad know he didn't say that.

He said when you see these things begin to happen. Look up for your redemption is drawing near.

Here's the bottom line the take away true Bible prophecies are being fulfilled in our lifetime. It seems like were seen more things happen in real time closer together. As the Scripture said they would be so what should we do, we should look up and we should remember that God is in control and we read the last page of the Bible. The last page of Revelation and we win in the end, let me add this. Let's all be praying for the people of the Ukraine. They're going through a time of great suffering right now. Pray for them.

Pray that God gives to our leaders wisdom, as are making very important decisions in the days ahead.
