PUTIN AT EASTER SERVICE
By Mickey McConnell, December 22, 2015
Is it possible? that former member of the KGB, Vladimir Putin, is showing signs of seeking after Almighty God? I cannot say for sure that he is a Christian, but he seems far more Christian than President Obama. Apparently Putin’s father was atheistic and a communist; but get this, his mother was Eastern Orthodox Christian. She had Vladimir Putin baptized secretly at a young age, because she feared her husband would not like it. Could it be, that Putin was so influenced by his mother’s Christianity, that he has come full circle? Only Almighty God knows the answer to that.
According to the story, Putin wears a cross that he never takes off. It was given to him by his mother for a trip he was taking to Israel. He took it with him to Christ’s tomb in Israel for a blessing and the cross is very special to him. Putin has been seen making the sign of the cross at church. Putin and Russia have in recent years supported traditional Christian morality; such as, resisting the spread of homosexuality. Apparently Putin has spoken strongly about the foolishness of the U.S. Democrat Party and President Obama in pushing for more socialism saying, that the USSR has already experienced the failure of socialism. Under Putin, Russia seems to be having somewhat of a revival of Christianity with Putin’s blessing. Putin seems to be perplexed at how the great United States of America is leaving behind its Christian roots.
Of course, none of this proves, that Putin is a Christian; however, it strongly suggests something unusual is going on inside of him and in a good way. Wise men will think more and more about eternity the older they get. Wisdom makes its voice heard all around us, and the heavens declare the glory of Almighty God. Almighty God is not so much concerned about our past, but directs us to prepare for eternity. The apostle Paul was guilty of heinous crimes against “The Young Christian Church”; and yet, Almighty God forgave him and used him mightily. King David was guilty of adultery and murder; and yet, Almighty God forgave him and set him back on the right path.
Vladimir Putin may be guilty of many offenses in his past, but the Holy Bible says that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. If Putin confesses his sins to Almighty God, then he is forgiven same as anyone else. (I John 1:9). Also in Romans 10:9, “If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that Almighty God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
I don’t know about you, but I have great respect for anyone who seeks after Almighty God to know Him. Putin interests me a lot. I am a disciple of Christ first and foremost, and my allegiance is to Him. The “kingdom of God” is more about making disciples for Christ, than it is about being American or Russian. I 100% support Putin in his journey to know Christ, and I hope that he gets it right for time and eternity. Man looks at the outward appearance but the Almighty looks on the heart.
I am greatly saddened, that the president of the United States is moving the USA in the opposite direction. Obama is undermining Christianity and Christians in the United States, while Putin is encouraging Christianity and Christians in Russia. The United States has lost its moral authority to dictate morality to the world. We have become and example of what not to do and what not to be. The United States of America better repent while there is still time. Our great republic is in steep spiritual decline and will not be turned around without turning back to Almighty YaHVeH.
