Cainish Russia and Lil Brother Ukraine

On the morning of March 12th, 2022, as I drank my first cup of coffee, I decided to see what was on YouTube® and in my feed was Flashpoint, a faith-based political program that discusses how prophesy and current events align. The most recent broadcast was about the war in Ukraine, so I decided to watch. As I did, Christian New York Bestselling author, Eric Metaxes said something that though I thought I knew, in this moment in time it started to make sense. He said that God blessed the United States to be a blessing to other nations. And though he didn’t say it, I took that to mean, that since God has blessed our nation to hold over 33% of the world’s wealth[1] along with holding the most military power, God expect us to both share and defend.

“…to whom much is given, from him much will be required…”

Luke 12:48

In the grand scheme of things, we’ve done relatively well…on certain occasions. And not saying our nation is sinless or has shared the wealth, provided aid or defended everyone perfectly. But for the most part, we have done our share. But this is what he said that got my attention.
