VLADIMIR , THE GREAT ?!?. . . ' THE 21st CENTURY GLADIATOR '
' NEWS FLASH ' - Vladimir Putin - Russia's bare-chested testosterone-injected President - leads his team to a crushing victory in a ' charity ' ice-hockey game. Personally scoring a swag of goals himself , the iron-man of world politics put on a ' exhibition ' of his extraordinary sporting prowess & further fed his need for ' cheesey ' staged-propaganda. So justhow many goalsdid the illustrious Russian leader score ?? In a game where only rarely does a player score 3 or 4 goals in a game . . . Vladimir scored an astonishing '6' goals himself !!! Entirely appropriate. In scripture , 6 is the number of Man , the number of imperfection in man's nature & work. Man was created on the sixth day ; six days were given to man to do labor & to toil ; the ' kingdoms of men ' will last 6,000 years & the giant ' Goliath ' of Gath , who with his 6 fingers & 6 toes , stood 6 cubits high& was the ultimate symbol & embodiment of fleshly men. As we witness the rise of a latter-day ' giant ' in the form of Vladimir Putin , we know with absolute certainty , he ( together with his confederate armies ) will also be destroyed - like Goliath - by the Lord Jesus Christ himself.
Daniel 8v23-25 - In the latter time of their kingdom , when the ' transgressors ' are come to the full , a KING of fierce countenance ( Russian Gog ) understanding dark sentences ( ex-KGB Chief ) shall stand up & his power shall be ' mighty ' but not by his own power & he shall destroy wonderfully & shall prosper & practise & shall destroy ' the mighty ' & ' the holy people ' ( Israel ) & through his policy also he shall cause ' craft ' ( deceit ) to prosper in his hand & he shall magnify himself in his heart & ' by peace ' shall destroy many : he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes ( Lord Jesus Christ ) but he shall be broken ' without hand '
