Russia says the declaration of independence by Kosovo threatens the destruction of world order and international stability

The Russian FM has warned the world that Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia could have dangerous consequences and it threatens the destruction of world order and international stability which has been developed over the decades.

The UN Security Council and the EU are both divided over how to respond to Kosovo's political move with Russia and China supporting Serbia in their opposition to Kosovo's withdrawal from Serbia. The Serbian parliament has passed a resolution condemning Kosovo's declaration of independence and has withdrawn its ambassadors from nations who have recognized Kosovo as an independent state.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Russia's warning of the destruction of world order and international stability has a relationship with the End Times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

For years there has been an effort by the Albanians to take over the Serbian enclave of Kosovo which has resulted in Kosovo declaring its independence with the encouragement of the US and many of the larger member states of the EU. Russia has opposed such a move from the very outset, mostly because of the relationship with Serbia in the former Soviet Union. Now, with the independence declared by Kosovo, Russia is ready to encourage instability in the region and has warned that this move could shake up the world order.

Bible prophecy records that the ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel foretold the role that Russia would play in the Last Days. Ezekiel 38:2 mentions Russia by its Biblical name, Magog. Magog will lead a coalition of nations in the Last Days, an alignment of nations that will endeavor to destroy the Jewish state of Israel, Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11.

Russia's warning of international instability and the destruction of the world order does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
