While one way this is exhibited is birthmarks, another is similar appearances. In this regard, the current cast of leaders in Russia is an interesting study.
Is Russian President Dmitiri Medvedev the reincarnation of Tsar Nicholas II?
Is Medvedev's wife, Svetlana, the reincarnation of the wife of Tsar Nicholas II, Alexandra?
Is Russian Prime Minister Putin the reincarnation of RasPUTIN? (Note that the name "Rasputin" is comparable to the Russian word "rasputny" (распу́тный) which means "licentious" or "unrestrained by law or general morality; lawless", i.e., equivalent to The Lawless One.)
For those who aren't aware of the history of Grigori Rasputin, the "Mad Monk" of Russia, this evil incarnate persona would make sense as the foundation for the Antichrist. In fact, at one point a woman tried to stab Rasputin to death believing he was the antichrist.
"The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]
There's no doubt that pre-1917 imperial, tsarist Russia is reincarnating. Indeed....that Prime Minister Putin is currently the real Russian leader in the background relative to President Medvedev, similar to how Rasputin was the real leader in the background during the final years of the reign of Tsar Nicholas II, makes a good deal of sense in the context of this reincarnation hypothesis.
As I have been attempting to point out to this world for almost 20 years, the collapse of the Soviet Union and end of Russian Communism was effected not by pro-Western reformers seeking democracy but rather by anti-Western nationalists seeking autocracy.
"Today the Soviet system can no longer seriously strive toward the spectre of Communism - but at the same time it cannot yet abandon the grandeur of its tasks, for otherwise it would have to answer for fruitless sacrifices which are truly innumerable. But in what then can the Soviet system find its justification? Only in the consciousness that it was unconsciously in the past, as it is now quite consciously, God's instrument for constructing a new Christian world. It has no other justification, and this is . . . a genuine and great justification. By adopting it, our state will discover in itself a truly inexhaustable source of Truth, spiritual energy and strength, which has never before existed in history . . . The old pagan world has now finally outlived its era . . . In order not to perish with it we must build a new civilization - but is Western society, whose foundations have been destroyed, really capable of this? Only the Soviet sytem, having adopted Russian Orthodoxy . . . is capable of beginning THE GREAT TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD." (Passage written by Russian nationalist G.M. Shimanov quoted in Yanov's The Russian Challenge, p.236)
The conversion was staged to appear benign so that the West could be lulled into a false sense of security, but the reality is that what has been underway is about as dangerous for the West as possible.
More specifically, as forewarned about by Alexander Yanov, the Russian Right assumed control of the Kremlin back in the 1970s and 1980s and thereafter did away with Communism to ultimately replace this false ideological front with the false front of Christianity. Russia's ruling elite see themselves as being on a messianic mission to destroy the evil West they believe is controlled by satanic Jews in order to make way for the "kingdom of god" which, in their mind, is a global tyrannical monarchy where their tsar serves as Tsar of Tsars, i.e., King of Kings....Christ incarnate.
That this is the case can easily be discerned by examining Russia's state emblem as adopted in 1993, soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union. (The state emblem had been the well-known hammer and sickle of communism up to the change over.). Here's an image of the central Coat of Arms:
Now here is the Byzantine Empire emblem that appears above the front entrance of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople which signifies the Second Rome:
The main difference is the central image in the Russian state emblem of St. George on a white horse slaying the satanic serpent....which, in a modern context, represents Russia slaying the satanic evil of the West.
Now here's an image of the banner of the Holy Roman emperor:
Further evidence that Russia is resurrecting into the Third Rome can be seen in an image comparison between maps of modern Moscow and Ancient Rome:
Here's the Kremlin versus the Golden Palace (Domus Aurea) after Emperor Nero had Rome burnt to the ground to make way for his tyrannical vision:
And while on the topic of Nero, one might note the similarity between this infamous murderer of Christians and Mikhail Gorbachev, the last Soviet Premier:
Caesar Nero's name is represented by 666 in numerology, the number of the beast from Revelation 13:
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.
And let's not forget that birthmark on Gorby's forehead that looks like a map of Italy (READ: Rome - it's air brushed out of the official image above because many Russians believed it represented the "mark of the beast" when he became leader of the USSR.) Gorbachev's birthmark apparently has special meaning to him as can be noted from the painting that hangs over the fireplace in the living room of his private dacha:
Gorbachev has gone the extra mile to cultivate this savior image, regularly comparing himself to Jesus Christ, making reference to Calvary and referring to the “crosses and suffering” and “crucifixion” he must bear. In an interview with the major German newspaper Spiegel he said that the break-up of the Soviet Union “is the pain and cross I shall have to bear until the end of my days.”
Spiegel reports that “he compared his journey to Jesus’s journey to Calvary, when once before, ‘people had spat on their redeemer.’ ”
He is greatly pained, reportedly because though he is celebrated like a rock star throughout most of the world, he is rejected and scorned by most of his Russian countrymen. According to Spiegel:He concealed his pain with a dash of megalomania. A painting by Russian artist Andrei Myagkov hung in Gorbachev’s dacha outside Moscow where only a few friends were welcome. It showed Gorbachev as a shadow of the savior: Jesus has Gorby’s birthmark on his right hand, which is bleeding.
[From Gorbachev on the “New World Order” circuit again]
One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. [Revelation 13:3]
There are, of course, rather dire implications for the world, and Western Civilization in particular, if, indeed, Russia fancies itself the resurrecting 'Holy' Roman Empire. First off, bear in mind that the concept of the "Third Rome" is parallel to the "Third Reich" of Nazi Germany:
The name Third Reich (Drittes Reich, "Third Reich") refers to the state as the successor to the Holy Roman Empire of the Middle Ages and the German Empire of 1871–1918. (Wikipedia)
Thus, the current mentality of the Kremlin is on par with that of Hitler's Third Reich. What's worse, Russia's identification with resurrecting into the Third Rome means that the leader is upheld not just as a czar but, more so, as Czar of Czars, i.e., the incarnation of Christ (READ: "Czar" = C-zar = Caesar). In this sense, the utopian social goal of Communism is displaced by a utopian totalitarian goal of Russia's version of the kingdom of god. Also, since Jews are deemed to be responsible for the murder of Jesus, they are therefore the primary target of divine Russian retribution....thus making "Zionism", purportedly advanced by Israel and America, primary strategic targets of Moscow's thermonuclear machinations.
Of course, the truth of the matter is that Constantine I hijacked the message of Christ for personal deification in order to cement control over his empire. This is no different than what the modern-day ruling elite of Russia are up to.
Of course, as is made clear by my blog, I believe I'm here to upset the Kremlin's diabolical, megalomaniacal plans by revealing that Russia's leaders are, in fact, telling a total lie and committing the ultimate act of premeditated mass murder in human history. After all, 'the devil is a liar and murderer from the beginning'.
