Poking Bears

Seeing as what has been unfolding in the Ukraine is a skip and a hop away from where our work in Romania is currently taking place, I’ve been keeping up with the developments, troop movements, and reactions to this entire drama.

In spite of all the stern warnings from pudgy politicians who’ve never seen a day of war, and the verbal tongue lashings from European and American officials alike about how inappropriate and politically incorrect this whole thing is, if Russia wants Crimea, Russia will have Crimea, then likely all of Ukraine and there is absolutely nothing save all-out war that will deter the Russians.

Having read my fair share of analysis on this topic, one point that every writer keeps making which is utterly wrong and has no basis in reality is that the Russian military is some weak, malnourished thing suffering from the rickets, barely breathing and in no mood for any sort of conflict.

To hear them tell the tale, the Russian army is comprised of fifteen pubescent teenagers with slingshots and blowguns.

‘No need to fear, their army is unmotivated, untrained, ill equipped, and a shadow of its former self,’ they say, even though all evidence points to the contrary.

This, I think is also the most important point of all the back and forth, because if indeed the Russian military complex is weak and emaciated, it would be in their best interest to attempt diplomacy. Try as our politicians might to spin it and say that the Russians are ready to sit down at the negotiating table and come to a peaceful resolution, there is no sign of this, and though some do not see the intent of these maneuvers, for those who have eyes to see they are very clear.

Before a conflict even begins, one must analyze a situation and ask the most fundamental of questions: which if any of the two parties has the stomach for a fight?

Simplistic as this might sound, it is also very telling in regards to the possibility or probability of negotiation, and of coming to a peaceful resolution.

From what I’m seeing, one of the parties involved not only has the stomach for a fight, but is relishing the idea of it, knowing that through the years while they’ve kept lean and hungry their enemies have grown soft, comfortable, and complacent.

In order to understand the true magnitude of what we are facing one must understand how the mind of one such as Vladimir Putin works. This is a cunning, disciplined, and forward thinking individual whose actions have purpose, and whose plans will remain cloaked and hidden until the last possible moment.

You cannot underestimate a man who’s been the head of the KGB, and has held the reins of power in a country like Russia for the better part of fourteen years. You don’t hold that kind of power in that kind of country if you are not ruthless, cutthroat, and extremely cunning. It just doesn’t happen!

The bear is awake, and poking it will just make it angry. It’s not as though God hasn’t warned, His people were just too busy to listen.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

I totally agree! God help us! If we choose not to repent and continue on our path of evil, destruction will most certainly come. Praying for your ministry, Michael (& for your is your wife & little one-to-be?)

Brother Michael, thank you for touching on this recent event. But there is more to this of what you wrote. Putin is trying to save Ukraine from joining the EU, which is NWO and Illuminati based and that sounds Christ-like to me, in that the darkness (EU) being exposed and along with the USA, sent and planted those "oppositions" to cause chaos and confusion in Kiev. Ironic how we in the US have forgotten that a president by the name of George Bush Sr., was the head of the CIA and he had two terms and he made the announcement of the having a NWO on 9/11/1991. Let's just say the words of the Lord your grandfather gave are coming to pass. And I would dare to say that Putin at one time may have been these things you say of him but he's been acting more Christian in the last few years than the one we have in the WH now. Also a well know prophet in the US has said the next Russian leader (after Putin) will be even more ruthless. More of the reason the church needs to pray for divine intervention and that the truth comes out. May God continue to bless you, your family and your ministry.

I have a horrible feeling in my stomach that this is just the beginning of what will eventually lead to the judgement of God. Russia isnt afraid to show their power and America seems to be blind to the danger that is building. I am praying that more Christians will wake up from their slumber before its too late. God bless you.

Overconfidence is a very strange entity. It is one thing to have a military advantage in technology and it is another to be able to use it after living a lifestyle that shelters one from hard circumstances. Being detached from reality has cost many a monarch to lose their throne. Surprise is the nature of military conflict and often technology is not the final answer. Being morally right in your cause goes a long way and requires careful reflection, but assuming that you are top dog just because you have been so in the past is a fatal mistake.

It occurs to me that being trading partners in food & mdse is better than trading bombs. Mr putin is the leader of a very strong nation. treat him with respect!

Very good post. It seems to me, that if the west does not act on their boisterous claims, and we all know that obama is a girly man at best. The Russians and Chinese will just start taking what they want. Obama and Kerry and all of these new communists that have taken over, have used the history of power that the US had years gone by, and have blustered and bragged, and now Russia and China are calling their bluff and the girl men of obama are losers at best.

Amen... poking and taunting a grizzly has serious consequences. Alarms were being sounded for years by the watchman on the wall, but no one listened to them... now the time is upon us.

I can't believe the comments about this. Putin is NOT trying to save Ukraine from the EU, he is preparing to invade a nation that has been repeatedly victimized by Russia over the years. As recently as 1932-33 under the tyrannical leadership of Stalin, the Ukrainian farmers were being starved to death in a deliberate effort to break their collective will. Today, Russia is again playing the imperialist bully, trying to force Ukraine to side with it. The people of Ukraine have the right to choose their own destiny free of influence from either the EU or Russia.

Blessings Michael,

And Russia is now placing military bases in Cuba and South America, just as your grandfather prophesied.

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Shalom, John

Talk about a sleeping giant, all this while Security Forces are demanding massive cuts! Hardest hit is the Air Force, they plan to cut 23,263 airmen this year alone.

I've read or listened to Dumitru Duduman and Henry Gruver speak of the Russians invading and nuking the USA and have often thought about how this will play out. And with the possible flash points in Connecticut, Syria, Israel, etc. ready to play out, I now see the pieces falling into position.
Yes, it's not wise to mess with a grizzly or any bear

Brother Michael,

For what it's worth, that phrase "poking the bear" is exactly what I heard in my spirit when I became aware of these sudden developments. I see that as a confirmation.

Also, your previous dream of the "Eagle and the serpents" came to mind recently and I do feel the second part of your dream may come to pass soon.

On another note, the Spirit has firmly reminded me that for those who are fully trusting the Lord,they are and will be sheltered in His shadow and they are not to worry for these things MUST come to pass as Jesus told us they would but that HE is firmly in control and while there may be turmoil in the world, it will be well with the righteous.Not necessarily "easy" mind you.But "well". The Lord knows how to keep those who have entrusted themselves unto Him. Selah.
May God's blessings be upon the children of the Most High....

I stumbled across your site via Steve Q's site! Putin is an evilly clever individual and w/the socialist game (Marx/Ill-loom's manifesto) you could say they've been successful! Vlad does have a problem, he's got in bed w/the Ishmaelite's, china has another agenda(s) & all are playing the losing game of the foolish cabal of the Scottish Rite!
This 'beast system' will be full of holes by many who've taken the 'mark' once they realize they've been duped! Apollo's demise will come at the 3.5 year point when he claims to be the lie of 'i am that i am' and the wealth of the world will be sought after so 'he' can do battle w/Israel, China (at that time) will move against the man of perdition but will join 'him' at the 'great wine press'!
*Christian's need to seek His face and at all cost, not to be fooled! Persecution is coming, Satan loves attacking loved ones. Got to be Bold, knowing the Lord will Right all wrong's!
* I find it interesting that the Lord has blocked the Ill-looms from resurrecting the total power of the pyramids - yes i know they have the gwen's, harp players, bluebeams etc and gookle glass which will be a curse for the control freaks, hmm, what about all the calcified pineal gland's?!

God bless
you all

Russia And China 'In Agreement' Over Ukraine

A Vision Received by Brother Dumitru Duduman April 22, 1996

I prayed, then went to bed. I was still awake, when suddenly I heard a trumpet sound. A voice cried out to me, "Stand!"

In my vision, I was in America. I walked out of my home, and began to look for the one who had spoken to me. As I looked, I saw three men dressed alike. Two of the men carried weapons. One of the armed men came to me. "I woke you to show you what is to come." He said. "Come with me."

I didn't know where I was being taken, but when we reached a certain place he said, "stop here!"

A pair of binoculars was handed to me, and I was told to look through them.

"Stand there, don't move, and look," he continued. "You will see what they are saying, and what they are preparing for America."
As I was looking, I saw a great light. A dark cloud appeared over it. I saw the president of Russia, a short, chubby man, who said he was the president of China, and two others. The last two also said where they were from, but I did not understand. However, I gathered they were part of Russian controlled territory. The men stepped out of the cloud.

The Russian president began to speak to the Chinese one. "I will give you the land with all the people, but you must free Taiwan of the Americans. Do not fear, we will attack them from behind."

A voice said to me, "Watch where the Russians penetrate America."

I saw these words being written: Alaska; Minnesota; Florida.

Then, the man spoke again, "When America goes to war with China, the Russians will strike without warning."

The other two presidents spoke, "We, too, will fight for you." Each had a place already planned as a point of attack.

All of them shook hands and hugged. Then they all signed a contract. One of them said, "We're sure that Korea and Cuba will be on our side, too. Without a doubt, together, we can destroy America."

The president of Russia began to speak insistently, "Why let ourselves be led by the Americans? Why not rule the world ourselves? They have to be kicked out of Europe, too! Then I could do as I please with Europe!"

The man standing beside me asked, "This is what you saw: they act as friends, and say they respect the treaties made together. But everything I've shown you is how it will REALLY happen. You must tell them what is being planned against American. Then, when it comes to pass, the people will remember the words the Lord has spoken."

Who are you?" I asked.

"I am the protector of America. America's sin has reached God. He will allow this destruction, for He can no longer stand such wickedness. God however, still has people that worship Him with a clean heart as they do His work. He has prepared a heavenly army to save these people."

As I looked, a great army, well armed and dressed in white, appeared before me.

"Do you see that?" the man asked. "This army will go to battle to save My chosen ones. Then, the difference between the Godly and the ungodly will be evident."

If would be so kind, look at my sober assessment of the Ukraine situation and let me know what you think.

Brother Michael,
Thank you for the keenly insightful comments, knowing that you have some familiarity with this country that borders your native Romania. I am remembering how,before he was re-elected, President Obama was accidentally video-taped in March 2012 saying to outgoing President Medvedev, "This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility." I just looked this up online, and found he was referring to missile defense issues. I wonder what this means exactly? Also I'm remembering how the multinational beast of Revelation 13 has "the feet of a bear." Does "feet" mean "motive force"? Yes, dear brothers and sisters, we must pray and stay as close to the Lord as we know how, letting our love for Him cast out all fear. For our Lord Jesus is soon coming to conquer!
Bless you, Michael,

Poking the bear is only the first act of this play.

Something you've always said remains very true: Christians are supposed to die daily to this world. If we're already dead, what is there to fear?

Good piece!

In Daniels dream of 4 Beasts (Dan 7) - the BEAR has 3 RIBS in his mouth! Three ribs = America (Babylon), Britain (Her Mother - Jer 50:12) and Austrailia?! Esentially, "The West"?! This line of reasoning would match perfectfully with Dimitru's, Allens and Gruver's Prophecies?!
And the BEARS being RAISED on a side could indicate 1. Russia's Alliance with China! Or 2. Communist Russia/China's Alliance with Islam (Iran, etc.). What you think?!
