Speaker 1

So the question is, is what’s going on in the Ukraine a precursor to the battle of Armageddon? If so, shall we be looking up now for our redemption draw? If not correct.

Speaker 2

I need to get a little bit of background maybe on this, which is.

Speaker 3

I think a lot of people believe.

Speaker 2

That there’s Armageddon and God versus Magog.

Speaker 3

And all these things involve Russia.

Speaker 2

Everybody so excited when, oh, there might be war. Russia russia’s acting weird, and no, Putin is probably this and Putin’s probably that.

Speaker 3

So now, Tina, I’ll let you go and answer this question.

Speaker 4

Yeah, I think that’s another aspect I’d even think about off the top of my head. But what I would say to this, because I think a lot of people think, oh, Russia’s king of the north, dan Eleven, or all these things I don’t want to say, like, oh, it’s nothing. I think everything should point us back to the reality that Jesus is coming soon, that we need to make sure we’re always right with God and that we don’t know when our time is. The end of our life will be in the end of our story, and how we made a decision to be with God. So we need to be doing that on a daily basis. But as far as what’s going on in the world over in the Ukraine, I don’t mean to dismiss it. I’m not dismissing what’s happening because I know it’s very serious. And I think we need to be praying for these people in this part of the world and doing what we can to show them Christ love. But I do think it’s one of many climaxing things that are happening in our world that are part of what we see in Matthew, chapter 24 six, where basically Jesus is talking about the end of the world, signs of his coming to his disciples.

Speaker 4

And what it says in 24 or six, it says, Jesus says, and you shall hear wars and rumors of war. See that you’ll be not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. So basically, if you continue in verse seven, it says, for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there should be famines and pestilences, earthquakes in diverse places. We definitely experienced that recently, in the last two years of pestilence that’s gone on. But again, the end is not yet. We do need to be looking for Jesus coming. These are signs of his coming. But this is not the end. This situation in and of itself, I wouldn’t say is the end. The end is not yet. But I would say we definitely need to be. Again, like I’m saying, praying, making sure we’re right with God, and again, using every chance we have to witness to others of the love of God and of Jesus that his coming is very soon. I don’t know. Jay or Wendy.

Speaker 1

Obviously, for people who are more at higher risk from this event. All of us have our life. It’s limited. We don’t know when our last breath will be. We don’t know. And so making the choice each day, each moment to give a heart to God, to live according to Him, to seek his path for us, for us. That is the important thing that we focus on all the time. It’s not the world events that are going on. We know these things are going to happen because the Bible has talked about it for thousands of years. So we know these things are going to happen. But the focus should be on our relationship with God, our connection with God and living our life the way he would have us.

Speaker 4

Sorry, I just wanted to say one last thing. If you keep on one more verse 24, Mercy, it says all these are the beginning of sorrows, which is like birth pains, which they’re going to be seeing these wars, rumors of wars, they’ve been around for hundreds of years, but they’re going to get more intense and more strong as we get closer and closer to the coming of Jesus. So I definitely see that this is definitely again, it’s a warning, just like as birth pains, meaning when you’re going to have a baby, which as somebody who’s had a baby, let me tell you, it gets more and more intense right before you give birth. And at first it might be a little bit, but then as it gets closer, they become stronger and closer together and we see that definitely happening in our world. So may this be a wake up call for all of us to, again, like you’re saying, be right with God and do what we can to share the gospel with the time we have left. Because we don’t know, we don’t know the hour.

Speaker 2

Yeah, the battle of Armageddon, just to say it really is the battle of.

Speaker 3

The heart, as we’re talking about, is that decision to be with God, the decision to be on his team, his.

Speaker 2

Decision to stand like chattered, Mishuk and bendigo when everybody’s bound down to the.

Speaker 3

False idol, the false image.

Speaker 2

Are you willing to stand true even.

Speaker 3

In the threat of death for God and for what’s right and for what’s truth? And that’s the heart of this battle that we see in Revelation through 16.

Speaker 4

Amen. Amen to that. I’m sorry.

Speaker 3

Just to say pray everybody chooses God and chooses life.

Speaker 4

Amen to that. That’s God’s will for all of us.
