Russia has massed nearly all the forces – infantry, artillery, cruise and ballistic missiles – it will need to mount a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a senior Defense official told USA TODAY.

Those forces include two dozen warships in the Black Sea and represent nearly 100% of the combat power needed for a large-scale at, said the official who briefed reporters but was not authorized to speak publicly.

The strategic movement of Russian forces comes as Ukraine was poised to implement a 30-day state of emergency on Wednesday. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called up military reservists, as Russia recognized two separatist regions as independent and appeared mobilized for major military action.

Zelenskyy said that Ukraine wants “silence” but noted it must act. “But if we remain silent today, we will disappear tomorrow,” he said late Tuesday.

God’s Name

God has a hundred names and Allah ninety-nine. Jesus’ name occurs more in the Quran than Mohammed’s. All God’s names in the bible serve to show the many sides of His Person.

The True Trinity

Muslims claim that Christians believe in three gods and not in the One. Catholics believe rightly, like the Jews, that God is One. But they go wrong in inventing the idea of the procession of the Trinity.

The True Faith!

Some sceptics reason that there are so many different kinds of faith that one can impossibly find out whether there is a true one. But if there is a God He must have given us a chance to know Him. There is one God and only One Truth. And Christ Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life. But like a resplendent brilliant He has many glorious facets.

The Bible Is Unique

The bible is the most sold book. Thomas a Kempis wrote his all-time bestseller “On the Imitation of Christ” and Bunyan his one “The Pilgim’s Progress”. They may have been translated in more than a hundred languages, but the bible in at least ten times more than that! Christian’s pretty well swear by the bible, yet they have tremendous difficulty to read it by themselves. Few and far between are they that read it on a daily basis.

Higher Criticism

Higher criticism seems to hail down from the age of reason. However the Sadducees of old were already higher critics of some sort. But is the use of reason all there is to it? No! I argue that there is a deep seated hatred in us that not only makes us to abuse our ratio, but anything goes when it comes to denying Jesus as Lord and God.
