Prophecies about Russia
Different Prophets had Visions and made Predictions for Russia.
The Prophecy of Ishmael
Ishmael would be a great nation ! In the Bible, God promised Abraham and Hagar that Ishmael would become a great nation: “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren ["defying all his kinsman]” (James Moffatt Transl)].
And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation…(Gen 16:11-12;17:20). Now, the brother of Ishmael was Isaac, and his descendants are the Modern-day peoples of the United States and the British Commonwealth of Nations. The prophecies of Genesis are for the end time.
The birthright blessings of Isaac, Esau, and Ishmael all have the same time element to them. And the rise of Russia is in exact sequence to Britain and America. Russia’s rise to world power actually began before World War II, It began back in the Great European Colonial Expansion of the 17th thru the 20th centuries with the Russian Empire and Russian Revolution.
The Fall of Communism In the places and times of flesh giving way to fish, The communal law will be made in opposition: It will hold strongly the old ones, then removed from the midst, Loving of Everything in Common put far behind. We have already seen this prophecy coming true. During the early 1990s in Soviet Union and Communist Europe (in those times and places), when the economic condition in these countries deteriorated (meat gave way to fish), Communism (the law of commune) was opposed by the people. The old leaders indeed tried to hold on but ultimately were removed from powers.
Ultimately Communism (all things common among friends – equality among friends – comrades) collapsed. This prophecy was understood even before its accomplishment by many interpreters. But the instability caused by collapse of USSR and the resulting unipolar world may indirectly be the cause of the next great war.
