Ukraine: Deadly clashes around parliament in Kiev

Prophecy Sign:  Revolutions and civil unrest

You've probably seen the recent news reports of the decaying situation in Ukraine. One report we heard today suggested that the civil strife in the nation may be ready to escalate into civil war.  But Ukraine is not the only nation that has dealt with recent unrest and revolution as Venezuela, Thailand, Brazil, Bulgaria, much of the Middle-East and Southern Europe has been inundated with riots and revolution in past months.

This is exactly what Jesus warned would happen just prior to his return.

When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away. Luke 21:9 NIV 

Ukraine: Deadly clashes around parliament in Kiev
Violent clashes have erupted during anti-government protests in Ukraine's capital, Kiev, with at least nine people, including two policemen, dead. In the worst violence in weeks, police used rubber bullets and stun grenades as thousands of protesters marching on parliament. A deadline set by the security forces for the violence to end has passed with no immediate sign of police action. The clashes came as MPs were due to debate changes to the constitution.

Fears of more protest clashes high in Venezuela 
Security forces closed off access to a plaza where anti-government demonstrators were set to rally behind fugitive opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez in a tense standoff with pro-government forces who have organized their own march. The competing demonstrations loomed one day after President Nicolas Maduro's government gave three U.S. Embassy officials 48 hours to leave the country, claiming they were supporting what he says are opposition plots to topple his socialist administration. The U.S. denied that.

4 dead after Thai police clash with anti-government protesters in Bangkok
Thailand's bitter political crisis intensified Tuesday as five people were killed in clashes between anti-government protesters and police, and the country's anti-corruption commission filed charges against the Prime Minister. The violence erupted in the heart of Bangkok after months of protests against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra that have deepened political divisions in the Southeast Asian nation.
