Why Russia is going to lose in this war - фото 1
I am a believer, an Orthodox Christian. I don't know what's going to happen, I'm not a prophet. But based on what I see and hear around me, I am convinced that Russia will lose the war with Ukraine.

No matter how good our army is, whatever the morale of the people, but any victory is from God, according to His Will.

That is why I believe Ukraine is going to win:

1.The scathing lies of the Putin regime

Gospel of John, chapter 8, verse 14 (NKJV)
"You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it”.

What the Russian government shows now is simply an abyss of lies and hypocrisy. They started shelling Donbas with their own weapons and then accused Ukraine in this and used this as an argument for invasion. Suggesting civilians to get out of the besieged cities they keep destroying, and then they start shelling and killing them. They destroy churches, kill children, civilians and they not only lie they do not do this but they strictly prohibit people in Russia telling truth.

This is an unseen level of lies, comparable exclusively to Nazi Germany and Stalin's USSR.

Putin is a person who is obsessed with lies. Since the father of lies is Satan, Putin is a man possessed by an evil spirit, Satan.

According to Western Media, the level of lies in his entourage comes to such extent that his political strategist stole $ 5 billion pretending they invested it to convincing Ukrainians to support Russia but nothing was done. It turned out that by lies they persuaded a liar Putin that Ukrainians support him, which became the trigger for the beginning of the war.

It is already quite clear that Vladimir Putin blew up houses with civilians in Moscow on the Kashir highway to come to power and he put all the responsibility for this at Chechen terrorists.

This is an unthinkable level of slander; it follows hand in hand with death. For sure God cannot be on the same side with this disgust.

2. Direct persecution of Christians for Christian beliefs by an "Orthodox" country

Galatians, chapter 6, verse 7 (NKJV)
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”.

Putin's Russia is not a blatantly ungodly state, because formally churches work here.

But this is a false Christian state.

Why? Because when the priest Ivan Burdin preached that Christians should not kill other Christians and a brother should not kill his brother, he was called to a police station and accused in anti-war propaganda.

It turns out that when a believer preaches God’s Word according to the Scripture, they threaten him with prison, as for now only prison. Taking all these facts into consideration that government still dares to call itself Orthodox.

This is disgusting hypocrisy, something that doesn’t praise God, such blasphemy will not be forgiven. Punishment, pay day will definitely come.

3. Attacking a state which is smaller in size.

Matthew 26:52 (NKJV)
But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword”.

When Russia attacked Ukraine, one pro-Putin priest said that Ukraine got it because of the Maidan revolution. Like “sow the wind, reap the whirlwind”

Russia sowed a storm now they need to wait for a tsunami.

There were dozens of countries like that in the world: Assyria, Babylon, ancient Egypt, other empires. Where are they now? What have God done with them? There definitely will be a pay day.

4. Destruction of the weak and oppression of the defenseless

Psalm 7, verse 10 (NKJV)
"My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart."

God is on the side of the weak and defenseless, those who are not guilty of anything, like dozens of children who died in this war, as well as women and civilians who were killed.

God defends his people. He makes the hearts of persecutors tremble, they run away, even when escaping makes no sense. And if they stay, they stay only to commit the worst sins, die and go to hell.

You need to be a completely blind, deaf, and spiritually callous person so as not to see what is happening. God stands up for Ukrainians.

Because He is not in power, but in truth. The truth is on the side of Ukraine today.
