Putin said: “I know when the world will end, the sun will turn into a white dwarf, other things will happen too, now that will be the end of the world as we know it, so if this is what you mean by the end of the world, it will come even sooner, but I am not afraid, it is inevitable!”
Wow, the obvious pride we can notice behind that statement is quite unnerving! By saying “I know when the world will end…” plus “it will come even sooner,” he is declaring that he holds the power to make it happened. It is all under his control. But, by the phrase “the world as we know it” we can see that he defined the end of the world, not in the biblical sense, but in the “balance of power” sense. Let us study what the “balance of power” means:
Beginning of quote
Britannica Concise Encyclopedia:
Balance of Power
In international relations, an equilibrium of power sufficient to discourage or prevent one nation or party from imposing its will on or interfering with the interests of another. The term came into use at the end of the Napoleonic Wars to denote the power relationships in the European state system. Until World War I, Britain played the role of balancer in a number of shifting alliances. After World War II, a Northern Hemisphere balance of power pitted the U.S. and its allies ( NATO) against the Soviet Union and its satellites ( Warsaw Pact) in a bipolar balance of power backed by the threat of nuclear war. China’s defection from the Soviet camp to a nonaligned but covertly anti-Soviet stance produced a third node of power. With the Soviet Union’s collapse (1991), the U.S. and its NATO allies were recognized universally as the world’s paramount military power.

So I would submit that Putin was not talking about the end of the world in the biblical sense, since he declared that he could decide when he can make it happened. Was he threatening to launch “NUCEAR headed” missiles against any country that challenges his superiority? Whether we like it or not, the balance of power status is being tested now; in the Syrian civil conflict; in the North Korean challenge, all against the USA! It is even more obvious when we come to the last video presented for this article.
Having said that, let us see what the Lord Jesus said about the sun when the world will really ends:
Matthews 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken…
Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood…
I just quoted two verses of scripture above. In the book of Matthews, the Lord taught us about a “darkened sun”, while He was walking on this earth; in the book of Revelation, the Lord disclosed to us the same “darkened sun” appearance.
So, I repeat, Putin was not talking about the biblical end of the world as prophesied, but rather, when he said, “I know when…,” and “it will even come sooner”, he was, in a way, declaring that he has the “power” to end the world, and by further saying that he is not afraid, he further shows that not only he can end the world “as we know it” which actually means the shifting of the world’s balance of power. He is only talking about his superior fire power as compared to the present situation as “we know it!”
But, what did the Lord Jesus said concerning the real end of the world and its timing?
Matthews 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Now let us watch Russian’s “Show of Force” on which Putin is banking on his power to End the World.
Gog & Magog. The Hook has been cast. RUSSIA DEPLOYS SOLDIERS TO ISRAEL
Published on Jun 5, 2013
This video is from “signs of thy coming” channel
Let me quote a portion of the prophecy regarding Russian and her allies “baited” desire to invade and occupy Israel:
Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:  And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords…
Note: In past article, I have quoted the modern names of Gog, which is Russia; and the prince (President) of Mesech (Moscow). Putin re-election to the presidency of Russia is ordained by the Almighty God as prophesied in verse 4 above in the phrase “I will turn thee back.” He is “baited” (put hooks) by God to march (deploy) in the phrase “will bring thee forth” So, no matter what, I want you to keep in mind that our Almighty God is always in control; even the election of world leaders!
Ezekiel 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
Note: First, let us examine the phrase “is gathered out of many people.” The only people that had been scattered all over the world are the Israelis (popularly known as Jews). The Israelis re-settled the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael) in the years following the end of World War 2. They achieved their independence status in May 1948 with a few area, including East Jerusalem which God said as My land and My City were still in the hands of the Arabs (Palestinians).
“…in the latter years” is now, where we can see and read the signs in past posted articles in my website. First let us examine the phrase: “the land that is brought back from the sword.”
After the battle following their independence, the war of note was the Six Day War which the Israelis named the Yom Kippur War. Please watch the following:
The Six-Day War, 1967 [Full Resolution]
Uploaded on Aug 22, 2011
The Six-Day War, 1967 [Full Resolution]. Also known as the War of 1967, this war was fought between Israeli and the Arab Forces across large areas across the Middle-East. Tension between Israel and her Arab neighbours had been growing for several months. Egypt, known as the United Arab Republic at the time, Jordan and Syria were all involved in the conflict. By the end of the war Israel had taken control of the Gaza Strip, Sinai Peninsula (from Egypt), West Bank and Eastern Jerusalem (from Jordan) and the Golan Heights from Syria.
Note (continued): “the land that is brought back from the sword” was none other than the remaining land comprising of “the Gaza strip”, “Sinai Peninsula”, “West Bank”, Golan Heights” and most importantly, “Eastern Jerusalem”! Why am I saying that? By virtue of the achievements of repossessing the remaining land area in the time the battle was fought, “Six Days.” On the Seventh day, the war ended. God only works for six days; on the seventh day He rested:
Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Knowing God’s involvement in re-establishing the acceptable boundaries of the land of Israel, is it right for any mere human being to change God’s handy works in re-establishing the land of Israel?
Ezekiel 38: Continued
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.  Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:  And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,  To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Note: As Putin’s army and allies march to the Middle East battle positions to face USA and its NATO allies, evil thought came to them to start the war by invading Israel, the “un-walled villages.”
In the opening video, we learned that Putin considers Russia as the current world power as opposed to the USA and its NATO allies at the end of Soviet Union era. Why did he come to that conclusion? While Putin assumed his position as Prime Minister (a ploy to be re-elected back to his Presidency position), USA, under the Obama administration was blatantly challenged as we can see in the following video:
Russia Warns the USA; they will nuke the US!
Published on Sep 14, 2012
There is nothing more realistic than hearing it right from the horse’s mouth itself. The whole country (Russia) hates America. Don’t believe CNN.
Thus, we see the how Putin can boast that he has the power to end “the world as we know it!” But his invasion of Israel will end up as follows:
 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:  And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.  Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.  Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.  And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.  So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
Can you not see that the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; YAHWEH is His Holy Name, protect His people from forces who tried to eliminate them from their God-given land; Eretz Yisrael! No, it is never called Palestine from time immemorial; it has always been Israel from the time God declared it to Moses as follows:
Exodus 3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
God came down Himself to free the Israelites from the Egyptians’ slavery and gave them the above listed named places! No, I repeat, the land of Israel has always been Israel’s when Joshua destroyed the giant race, the descendants of the union between fallen angels with the daughters of man!
Do you believe in the Almighty God, YAHWEH? You can see very clearly that He is closing the book on this sinful world. But because of His loving nature, He wants to reduce the number of human beings from perishing, not the other way around. It is still not too late to seek His favor (grace)!
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” [2 Peter 3:9]
The way to be saved from the end time disasters and burning forever in the lake of fire, all He asks is, believe in His Son, Jesus Messiah, whom He had send into the world to be the ultimate sin sacrifice. There is no other way! This invitation is open to all: atheists, Judaism, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, for people of all walk and beliefs. Go and find a bible believing church; not the likes of the ones which I have disclosed in the article linked as follows:
COUNTERFEIT SPIRITS ON A WORLDWIDE SCALE
Here is how: Romans 10:
 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Remember; His Name is YAHWEH, not ALLAH or any other names!
the voice of one crying in the wilderness (or this darkened world).
