Russia invades Ukraine. That’s the news headlines, but what does that mean for these end-times, and what does the Christian believer need to know when viewed from a Biblical perspective.

First, God has promised in Amos 3:7, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” There is a definite time for the works of God to be unveiled. Some of the ways of God were given to Daniel, yet God said to the prophet in Daniel 12:4, “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end….” In Daniel 12:8, Daniel said, “I heard, but I understood not: then  said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?”

The prophet is confessing he does not know the  meaning of his writings. When he confessed this to the Father, God’s answer is found in verses 9-13 in Daniel 12,  here he told this obedient and humble man of God,  "Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”

With each work of God going on in the earth, it should be evident we are getting closer to the complete thought and revelation of God. This article is not my attempt to say something I know nothing about, but to bring to our attention the things God has both shown and told us is His will up to this point. At this crucial hour, God’s desire and care is for the multitudes and masses of sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:36 says this is so “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

As of this writing, February 8, 2022, this is a perilous and dangerous hour, but it could all be changed by the time you read this. God’s family could have already been removed to our heavenly abode. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 says, “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The “SCHOOL OF CHRIST MINISTRY” was ordained and called out to be a holy and Godly people to take the whole Gospel to the entire world. Everyone associated with this ministry has been called to help reach all peoples with the message of salvation and discipleship.

In these days (at least as of this writing) of war and indescribable suffering and sorrow, it is the Will of God that we pray for the lost. Of the untold numbers that this Gospel work has led to the Lord Jesus, they obeyed and through repentance were made Godly in Christ; we must remember our brothers and sisters in the Ukraine in continuing prayer.
