Patriarchate of Moscow
The Atlanta Journal Constitution had an article titled Stalin’s secret plans to invade Alaska … (http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/atlantas-public-housing-is-587310.html) in which it was mentioned Joseph Stalin had a plan to take back Alaska towards the end or after WWII.
Alaska was sold to the United States by the Russian Empire on March 30, 1867, for $7.2 million.
There is a Russian Professor who still holds on to the hope that Alaska will again be part of Russia. He has been pessimistic about the USA for over a decade:
Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s academy for future diplomats. He…appears in the media as an expert on U.S.-Russia relations…“There’s a 55-45% chance right now that disintegration will occur,” he says… he says, the U.S. will break into six pieces — with Alaska reverting to Russian control. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123051100709638419.html)
Russian Professor Igor Panarin says that events are continuing to confirm his doomsday prediction first made over 10 years ago, that the United States will completely collapse like the Soviet Union before the end of 2010 (http://www.infowars.com/russian-professor-collapse-of-america-could-begin-in-two-months/).
Now, while I do not believe that it is possible for the USA to fall apart by the end of 2010 and have part of it become part of Russia, the Bible is clear that the lands of the “strongest fortresses” (the USA) will “be divided” (Daniel 11:39).
11 months ago, notice what he reportedly stated about President Obama:
“Obama is “the president of hope”, but in a year there won’t be any hope,” said Panarin. “He’s practically another Gorbachev – he likes to talk but hasn’t really managed to do anything. Gorbachev at least had been a secretary of a regional communist party administration, whereas Obama was just a social worker. His mentality is totally different. He’s a nice person and talks nicely – but he’s not a leader and will take America to a crash. When Americans understand that – it will be like a bomb explosion.” (http://www.infowars.com/russian-professor-collapse-of-america-could-begin-in-two-months/)
In December 2008, he stated this about President Obama:
Americans hope President-elect Barack Obama “can work miracles,” he wrote. “But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles.” (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123051100709638419.html)
Now, the professor has stated that there was about a 50% chance for this happening in June or July of 2010 (Russian Professor To Be Wrong Again, But USA/UK/Canada/Australia/New Zealand Still at Risk). Obviously, he was wrong about the when. But he has not been wrong about his implication that US President Obama would not be able to work miracles. Nor that the USA has problems.
But my point in bringing out the Russian professor’s comments is simply to make it clear that there are those who come from a non-Church of God perspective see the USA in danger and expect the USA to be divided as well.
In addition to various biblical prophecies (Daniel 11:39; Lamentations 4:16; Joel 3:2-3; Amos 7:17; Ezekiel 5:1-2,12; 6:8; Ezekiel 22:13-15), there are also several Roman and Orthodox Catholic prophecies that also seem to believe that the lands of the English-speakers will be divided. The fact that Joseph Stalin wanted to make this happen decades ago, and a current Russian professor has expected it, suggests that these prophecies may have relevance in the 21st century.
BTW, Professor Panarin believes that Southern California will also be taken over–and he has suggested several groups that may end up with it.
