Atheist Russian tries to be a prophet
A Russian “political prophet” predicts the demise of America, with unlikely groups all having a share of the property.
According to Igor Panarin, President Barack Obama will order martial law this year (2009), the U.S. will split into six rump-states before 2011, and Russia and China will become the backbones of a new world order.
Panarin is a former spokesman for Russia’s Federal Space Agency and reportedly an ex-KGB analyst, and he meshes with the negative view of Vladimir Putin.
But he said the recent economic turmoil in the U.S. and other “social and cultural phenomena” led him to nail down a specific timeframe for “The End”—when the United States will break up into six autonomous regions and Alaska will revert to Russian control.
** Notice that Russia gets to benefit from this “prediction”
Panarin argued that Americans are in moral decline, saying their great psychological stress is evident from school shootings, the size of the prison population and the number of gay men.
*** So, Russia has no social or moral problems?
Turning to economic woes, he cited the slide in major stock indexes, the decline in U.S. gross domestic product and Washington’s bailout of banking giant Citigroup as evidence that American dominance of global markets has collapsed.
*** So, Russia has no economic problems?
Panarin dismissed that idea: “The collapse of Russia will not occur.”
** says who? It will be wiped out in the Gog/Magog war, when it tries to help Iran invade Israel for its booty.
But Alexei Malashenko, a scholar-in-residence at the Carnegie Moscow Center who did not attend the lecture, sided with the skeptical instructor, saying Russia is the country that is on the verge of disintegration.
*** this sounds more realistic
– The vodka in Russia is not enough to make Russians happy any more.
– For one thing, all these countries, except for maybe China, are in worse economic shape than the USA.
– Mexico is so poor, it sends its citizens to America for free help.
– The economic situation is a global one, and all countries are under stress, not just the USA
– personally, I have always thought that bartering was a more solid way to trade than currency. Currency is just paper.
– Russian atheists make lousy prophets…..they need to read the Bible, and learn something. You cannot prophesy without the presence of the Holy Spirit.
These are the international exchange rates for currency:
Comparisons of US Dollar and other countries:
Some things that Russians need to know about Americans
Do not try to take their money
Do not try to take their homes
Do not try to take their cars
Do not try to take their freedom
Americans shoot trespassers.
If America falls, then other nations will too.
And when this all happens, GOD will get the property, not other countries. He is going to establish His own kingdom on earth.
Russia needs to know who God is, and repent, like the rest of us.
I will pray for Russia, that its eyes will be open to the reality of God, and to His plan to redeem mankind from his own self-destruction.
