Hello folks, may the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob be with you, guide you and give you his wisdom in truth and knowledge. Amen
I had a dream last night. It was very short, but also very real and of course in living color.
I was standing in a room full of world leaders and diplomats. It was a small room. All of these people were sitting in a large circle around the walls of the room. They were in the process of voting for a new world leader. Vladimir Putin was there, as well as representatives from the United States, I believe it was John Kerry (Secretary of State) and Chuck Hagel (Secretary of Defense), along with many other world leaders. I do not recall President Obama being there.
Just before they were about to read the results of the voting, I told Kerry and Hagel that the new leader would be Vladimir Putin, they both scoffed at me and ignored me. Then the vote was read aloud. The new world leader is “Vladimir Putin” from Russia. No one could believe what they just heard. I looked at them, like, I told you so! Vladimir Putin then gave a short speech on how he was going to make the world a better place (Ha!).
The dream then ended.
I am not saying that Vladimir Putin will be the “Anti-Christ”. I do not think that he is. But, I do think that he is claiming a new role in the pecking order of world leaders. What else could the dream mean? Maybe just a dream. But, I thought that it was important and significant enough to share with you. Many people believe that he has already taken this role as of the Syrian chemical weapons fiasco.
God Bless! 🙂
Russian president says it is too early to say what Russia will do but does not exclude supporting a UN resolution
Vladimir Putin has warned the US against launching military action in Syria, stating that Russia has “plans” on how it would react if such a scenario unfolded.
The Russian president’s comments came as Barack Obama for the first time portrayed his plans for US military action as part of a broader strategy to topple Bashar al-Assad, as the White House’s campaign to win over sceptics in Congress gained momentum.
In an interview with Associated Press and Russia’s state Channel 1 television, Putin said it was too early to talk about what Russia would do if the US attacked Syria but added: “We have our ideas about what we will do and how we will do it in case the situation develops toward the use of force or otherwise. We have our plans.”
MOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin hopes to send a delegation of Russian lawmakers to the United States to discuss the situation in Syria with members of Congress, the Interfax news agency reported Monday.
Russian legislators Valentina Matvienko and Sergei Naryshkin proposed that to Putin, saying polls have shown little support among Americans for armed intervention in Syria to punish its regime for an alleged chemical weapons attack.
The lawmakers said maybe U.S. legislators can be persuaded to take a “balanced stance” on the issue. Putin supported the initiative, which would require formal approval by the Foreign Ministry.
Russia has sent legislators to the U.S. before to try to persuade Congress about pending legislation. But sending a delegation to Washington to discuss Syria’s civil war could be seen as a publicity stunt, given the strong positions Moscow already has taken as a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. The U.S. has accused Russia of providing military support to Assad that has allowed Assad to cling to power during Syria’s civil war.
On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dismissed evidence of the alleged chemical weapons use by the Syrian regime as “absolutely unconvincing.”
