Preparation of the Russian Dragon
The Re-Christianization of Russia, long looked for by Bible Students, is evident in the news today.
Russia is the latter day Dragon of Revelation described as working in concert with Europe and the Papacy in bringing the nations to Armageddon. It’s activity is also described in the prophets who paint a picture of religious entity in the latter days. Bible students have looked for this for years, and now a religious revival is being witnessed in the news.
As the world recoils in horror at the spreading of ISIS’ influence, and the western nations are dragged back into their protectorate role in the Middle East, Russia is also being shaped and moulded to fit its role in the latter day.
Development of the Dragon
Russia is the successor to the pagan Roman dragon of the book of Revelation. The dragon is found in chapter 12 where a drama unfolds. In this chapter a picture is painted of a woman, a dragon and a manchild.
The woman who brings forth the manchild, is apostate Christendom. Paul had said that the body of believers was supposed to remain faithful to Christ:
“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:2)
In Revelation 12 the woman is not a chaste virgin, but found pregnant with child:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” (Revelation 12:1–2) Read more
