Putin claimed to be re-establishing ‘Third Holy Roman Empire,’ but that is happening elsewhere

Vladimir Putin


A reader sent me a link to the following:

“Two Romes have fallen. The third stands. And there will be no fourth. No one shall replace your Christian Tsardom!” said Russian monk Philotheus (Filofey) of Pskov in 1510 to their son Grand Duke Vasili III.  At the time, the Byzantine or Eastern Roman Empire had just fallen to the Ottomans, radically altering the global geopolitical order at the time.  Many holy Christian relics had been moved from Constantinople to Moscow to protect them from the Muslim invaders.  The tsars of the Rurik dynasty took on this mantle of authority and expanded imperial Russia all of the way to the shores of California.  The Russian Orthodox Church was intimately woven into the affairs of state and wielded extraordinary power.  One line of thought suggests the name “Romanov”, which the new tsarist dynasty called themselves after the death of Ivan the Terrible’s heir, came from the idea of a third Rome (although some dispute this.)…

Today, if one visits Moscow or any other Russian city or village, one of the main things you notice is the number of churches…

The western media has failed to pick up on this phenomenon.  That may be intentional or not; however, Putin has also intimately connected the Russian Orthodox Church into the halls of power…

He sees Russia as the new home of “family values.”

Whether or not you believe Putin is sincere, the end result is the same.  He has successfully harnessed the motivations of the vast Russian populace who are believers.  He is using this newfound moral authority to expand Russian influence around the world. http://www.westernjournalism.com/onward-christian-russian-soldiers-putin-believes-resurrecting-third-holy-roman-empire/#HRvjwcCGuL8Tf4xh.99

The Russian Orthodox and Vladimir Putin have a close relationship. Some have suggested that Putin’s Russia wants to begin WWIII (see World War III: Steps in Progress).

However, irrespective of what he may believe he is doing, Vladimir Putin is not re-establishing the ‘Holy Roman Empire,’ though for a time he may cooperate with that entity (which is in the process of rising up in Europe).  Vladimir Putin has lamented the fall of the old Soviet Union and wants to regain more territories.  But he also does believe that he has moral superiority over most of the leaders of the West–probably with the exception of the Vatican’s Pope Francis, who he is on good terms with (see Vatican credits Russia’s Putin for ‘defending Christianity’ and confirms a meeting and Moscow Patriarchate pleased Putin to meet Vatican, while Vatican works many sides for its ecumenical plans and Russia’s Putin and Pope Francis both kiss Marian icon).  Vladimir Putin has spoken out against the homosexual agenda (see Uganda Senate votes against homosexual agenda, while New Mexico judge rules for it and Vladimir Putin wants to cleanse Russia of homosexuality) and even taken steps against foul language in entertainment (see Russia’s Vladimir Putin takes a stand against vulgar language).

Speaking of the Vatican, Catholic writings do tell of a time of revived ‘Holy Roman Empire’:

In the process of replacing boundaries, the conceptual continuity with the preceding Mediterranean continent…was assured by a theological interpretation of history: in connection with the Book of Daniel, the Roman Empire—renewed and transformed by the Christian faith—was considered to be the final and permanent kingdom in the history of the world in general, and therefore the association of peoples and states that was taking shape was defined as the permanent Sacrum Imperium Romanum [Holy Roman Empire]. (Raztinger J. Europe today and tomorrow: addressing the fundamental issues. Translated by Michael Miller. Ignatius Press, 2007, p. 13)

Several private prophecies of canonized Saints specifically state that there will be a latter restoration of the Holy Roman Empire and that there will be at least one last Holy Roman Emperor. The authenticity of the authorship of such prophecies of canonized Saints (e.g., St. Hildegard, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Francis of Paula, and St. John Vianney) at least over the last eight hundred years is scholastically unquestionable… The Great King will be crowned Holy Roman Emperor by the reigning Pope (Birch, DA. Trial, Tribulation & Triumph: Before During and After Antichrist. Queenship Publishing Company, Goleta (CA), 1996, pp. 281, 555).

The first item above was written by the man who became Pope Benedict XVI.  A revived ‘Holy Roman Empire’ in Europe is what supporters of the Vatican want.

While the Church of Rome looks forward to this, Church of God literature has warned that a version of the old ‘Holy Roman Empire’ would rise up. In the December 1948 issue of The Plain Truth, the late Herbert W. Armstrong predicted a coming “United States of Europe” when he wrote:

It was the SERMON that shot forth that spark, impregnating the minds of world leaders in attendance. This amazing sermon was delivered by a foremost radio speaker of the Catholic Church, Bishop Duane G. Hunt of Salt Lake City…Without the guidance, supervision, authority of the Catholic Church, he told these men, they were laboring in vain…

This was the Roman Catholic bid to resurrect the so-called “HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE” ! And PROPHECY says they will succeed!…At the psychological time, the pope will step in… Thru this political movement, he will UNIFY…nations in Europe. It will be a “The UNITED STATES OF EUROPE,” but that probably will never become its official name.  (Armstrong HW. Now It Can Be Told…The Plain Truth,December 1948, pp. 2,5).

Notice also something else Herbert Armstrong wrote:

“And in the days of these kings…”–it is here speaking of the ten toes, part of iron and part of brittle clay. This, by connecting the prophecy with Daniel 7, and Revelation 13 and 17, is referring to the new UNITED STATES OF EUROPE that is now forming, out of the European Common Market, before your very eyes! Revelation 17:12 makes plain the detail that it shall be a union of TEN KINGS OR KINGDOMS that (Rev. 17:8) shall resurrect the old ROMAN EMPIRE. So, mark carefully the time element! “In the days of these kings”–in the days of these then nations or groups of nations that shall, IN OUR TIME, resurrect briefly the Roman Empire… (The members of the European Common Market are probably not the same ten that will resurrect the Holy Roman Empire.) (Armstrong HW. Mystery of the Ages. Dood, Mead & Company, New York, 1985, pp. 301,302-303)

These ten nations, or groups of nations, comprising the modern revived Beast, are to fight Christ at His coming. This shows the time for the fulfillment of this prophecy…Remember that there must be TEN NATIONS or groups of nations to comprise the final resurrection of the modern “Holy Roman Empire”! (AMBASSADOR COLLEGE, BIBLE CORRESPONDENCE COURSE. LESSON 32 (1963, 1965, 1967, 1969).

In a sermon on July 7, 1984, he added:

And I can see now, the event that is going to trigger the formation of the reunification in Europe; the resurrection of the medieval Holy Roman Empire that we’ve been looking forward to that is prophesied to come…

But I believe that some event is going to happen suddenly just like out a blue sky that is going to shock the whole world and is going to cause the nations in Europe to realize they must unite! … Well now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger…that is the economic situation in the world

The whole banking structure in the United States is a network all jointed together. But not only that, one nation has to deal with other nations and imports and exports. And so they have to have a means of transforming money from one nation to another. And so the banking structure is international and interwoven…

Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down…

Europe has already claimed that it needs to unite further for economic reasons.

Vladimir Putin, himself, would like to contribute to the financial fall of the USA.  But, whether or not he believes he is re-establishing the ‘Third Holy Roman Empire,’ that is now being established in Europe. Vladimir Putin’s actions have sent signals to Europe that they need to better re-arm.  In several respects, he is helping lead to the formation of the final Babylonian Roman Empire.  But what he is doing will lead to its destruction.

Vladimir Putin is ambitious.  And his intended Eurasian Union is consistent with biblical prophecy.  According to the Bible, a Eurasian confederation will be instrumental in eliminating the final Babylonian revival of the ‘Holy Roman Empire.’
