We should watch and see if they go any further with their aggressive annexation of what use to be known as the Soviet Union (U S S R). Which of those small countries will be next in the Russian advancement to reclaim what they may consider as their lost territory (*1) ? Will it be the tiny little country of Moldova? One could consider what Russia is doing in the process of annexation as a spiritual act. Let me explain…
What takes place in the realm of worldly politics, is often a shadow of what the spirit of worldly religions, and the Holy Spirit is doing in the Church of the Living God .
Not long before Russia began it’s military takeover of the Crimea section of Ukraine, we witnessed one of the most phenomenal ecumenical calls of modern times. A group of Charismatic Pentecostal Christian were told that an Anglican bishop was attending their convention in the spirit of Elijah the prophet according to Malachi 4: 5-6 (*2) .
Anyone familiar with this scripture understands that the spirit of Elijah the prophet was to visit Earth five times in the ministry of the Word of God. Those five time were with Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, Malachi 4: 5-6 (to the gentiles in the last days) , and with Moses to the Jews in the Great Tribulation period.
As one reads the accounts of the Spirit of Elijah anointing a prophet, they find an anointing to call a people to be separate unto the purpose of the Lord. Thus we read in Malachi 4: 5-6 that it is before the great and dreadful day of the Lord, that the heart of the fathers are to be turned to the children, and the heart of the children are to be turned to the father.
Please note; Malachi 4: 5-6 could not be the ministry of John the Baptist. If it were so, John would have turned those who followed his message to the Law of Moses. Instead, John’s anointing pointed to Jesus Christ (*3) . Hence, we find Jesus Christ saying the next ministry of Elijah will be a ministry of restoration (*4) .
A very interesting fact in the presentation of (*2) was that the bishop told the Pentecostals that Luther’s’ protest was over. He did so indicating that their protest should also be over. The bishop then introduced Pope Francis who proceeded with the standard ecumenical call. At the end of the presentation, the bishop extended an invitation to visit Rome to the leader of the Pentecostal’s . The reply given by the Pentecostal leader was “I am available.”
In typology what was witnessed in the Pentecostal convention may be called a calling to unity of the last of the protestant daughters with the Mother Church in Rome (*5) . It has long been known that the desire of the Roman Church is to reunite all of the Christian denominations under the banner of her authority. When this goal has been reached the world can expect that the manifestation of the Beast will almost be complete (*6) .
According to prophecy, the United Nations, the denominational church, Russia, and the Bride of Christ will all be involved in the spirit of unity at the same time. For Russia, it is called a false Pentecost. For the denomination church it is a false unity. For the Bride of Christ it is the Kingdom of God in our hearts (*7) .
As we witness the advancement of the power of Russia to bring men under the power of Communism, the call of the United Nations for political unity, and the call of the Roman church to make all Christians Catholic, we should also witness the call of the Holy Spirit to the Bride of Christ to unite in the spiritual Kingdom of God for the appearing of Jesus Christ and the catching away.
Daily news articles will tell us how the call of the United Nations, Russia, and the Catholic Church are being completed. However, to hear the call in the Bride of Jesus Christ, one must be in tune with the Holy Spirit. This call for unity will come to the Bride of Christ in Her heart by the word of God through the voice of the prophet of Malachi 4: 5-6, etc.
