Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nationalism is driving the war on Ukraine. I prophesied about the rise and the danger of nationalism on New Year’s Eve 2021. I didn’t expect it to lead to war this soon.

 Nationalism is “a feeling that people have of being loyal to and proud of their country often with the belief that it is better and more important than other countries.”

Nationalism caused World War I and World War II. History repeats itself., “Nationalism not only induces wars but, through the severity of its influence, makes compromise and acceptance of defeat more difficult. It thus tends to prolong the duration and increase the severity of wars.”

I heard the Lord say, “Nationalism is going to hit an all-time high as resources become more scarce. Many nations with resources to trade will try to take pole positions and power positions but will demand more than what can be paid. Secret trade deals are being negotiated that will cause some goat nations to prosper at the expense of sheep nations. But I hate unjust scales and I will repay. Let yourselves be Kingdom-minded not nations-minded and you will carry the authority to overturn the enemy’s plans in the nations who call upon My name.”

I prophesied that nations are going to begin shaking even more, our feet must be planted firmly in the Kingdom of God.
