NEWS UPDATE - 7th October 2022

On 30th September 2022, Russian president Vladimir Putin gave a speech to both chambers of the Russian parliament about the annexation of parts of Ukraine into Russia. In that speech he made a very prophetic statement concerning America that God prophesied would take place in the end times. This is what President Putin said:

"The West is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology, to collect an actual tribute from humanity ... It is critically important for them to FORCE ALL COUNTRIES TO SURRENDER THEIR SOVEREIGNTY TO THE UNITED STATES. In certain countries, the ruling elites voluntarily agree to do this, voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated. And if this does not work, they destroy entire states, leaving behind humanitarian disasters, devastation, ruins, millions of wrecked and mangled human lives, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones, protectorates, colonies and semi-colonies. They don't care. All they care about is their own benefit ..."

"The dictates of the US are backed up by crude force, on the law of the fist. Sometimes it is beautifully wrapped sometimes there is no wrapping at all but the gist is the same - the law of the fist. Hence, the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of military bases in all corners of the world, NATO expansion, and attempts to cobble together new military alliances, such as AUKUS and the like. Much is being done to create a Washington-Seoul-Tokyo military-political chain. All states that possess or aspire to genuine strategic sovereignty and are capable of challenging Western hegemony, are automatically declared enemies. These are the principles that underlie US and NATO military doctrines that require total domination..."

"Profits from World War II helped the United States finally overcome the Great Depression and become the largest economy in the world, and to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency." (Link)

Putin is confirming what God prophesied in Revelation 13 would take place in the end times - American dominance over the world, with America causing the world to take the mark of the beast!

Revelation 13 speaks of two beasts that represent two kingdoms which would play major roles in end time world affairs. The first beast represents none other than Papal Rome, and the second beast represents none other than America. You can see our study pages below for evidence on this. And what does Revelation 13 say the second beast (America) will do? Exercise power over the world and cause the world to worship the first beast and receive its mark:

Revelation 13:11,12,15-17 ...'And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed ... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.'

Which two kingdoms have involved themselves in all affairs all over the world? The Vatican and America! And which one nation has become the dominating force in world politics and military? America. And what is America going to do according to Revelation 13? Cause the world to bow to the dictates of the Roman Catholic Church and receive her mark, which will be against God's commandments. But America isn't going to just use brute force. There are great deceptions coming from the fallen churches in America who are uniting with the state:

Revelation 13:13-14 ...'And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.'

That 'image of the beast' which America will form is the image to the first beast, Papal Rome, a church-state union in America, with the churches leading the state power and causing the state power to do her bidding, just like the Papal Church of Rome. Once this is completely formed, we will see these false 'signs and wonders' being performed to deceive the world into bowing to the dictates of this church-state union in America. One of those dictates being the Sunday rest law which the Vatican wants enforced around the world, the false sabbath of Satan, in opposition to God's holy 7th day Sabbath (our Saturday).

Friends, President Putin is not the good guy in all of this. But he is telling it as it is, even though he doesn't have the whole picture, he rightly declares that America is the nation involved in all the troubles around the world. The part he misses out is regarding the Vatican steering things behind the scenes. And it will be America which will cause the world to take the mark of Papal Rome one day soon. Seventh-day Adventists have been preaching this truth for over 150 years, and we are now seeing all this taking place in the world. The final events are soon upon us. Let us be wide awake, seeking the truth and preparing by surrendering all to Jesus Christ, so that we will be ready for what is to come.
