Coffee with Job 130 – God’s Answer for Ukraine

Job 40:8-14 – The world is filled with people who think that if only they were in charge they could sort things out. If only we were in charge we would bomb Russia, get rid of Putin and bring peace. So why doesn’t God do that? Things ain’t that simple…

Coffee with Job 129 – Brace Yourself!



  1. Hallelujah! Some godly sense at last in an incredibly mad ‘free’ world, where everyone seems to think they are free to do and say whatever they like without consequences.
    I tremble to think what might happen as the ‘chatter’ rises in the media.

    But I loved your phrase, ‘only God can destroy creatively’.
    Sometimes this is a necessary part of his infinite wisdom, plan, and power. But I cannot second guess it, and need to bow my head and pray. How little the church in the west seems to know God.

  2. Great analysis as always David..,

    Thoughts on some one from within the Kremlin, or a sniper / marksman / assassin taking out Vladimir.., for what is known as the ‘Greater Good’ ..?

    The offer from someone of £1m to take him out seems somehow wrong, however despite his ‘Super security shield’ there is always a way to remove Putin for the greater good of the world, before he has an opportunity to launch a few Sarmat-2 long range (11,200 miles) ballistic missiles, each containing 16 precision guided nuclear warheads, and one missile of which could vaporise UK and another one France…

    The Western world may be a bit mad, however respectfully suggest Putin, in his desperate quest to hold on to power (remember that he is the world’s richest person) and regain some of the old USSR will stop at nothing in order to achieve his goals at any cost, is much more desperately mad these days…

    It is the ordinary Ukrainian and Russian person who comes off worst initially and thereafter, in all of this madness, followed by the fallout to the rest of the world in energy, economic, social and geo-political terms.

    1. Gordon

      Despite Bonhoeffer, I wouldn’t like to be a Christian voice encouraging assassination. The Lord will deal with him as he sees fit. We seek to act righteously. I know it is not always easy to see the righteous way forward,

  3. “I listen to a number of Bible Believing Christian “Leaders” in this country (including our own pastor), as well as around the world and they don’t give me any answers”.
    Sadly this is my experience in that they offer little hope. Too focused on following whatever the covid rules are today, drinking coffee and what’s on their calendar/agenda. It all seems a very cultural Christianity or “moral therapeutic deism”.

  4. Thanks David. Now in my 50th year of marriage and 52nd year of the Lord saving me, more and more I’m looking to the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
    His timetable is never too early or late, nothing happens outside of His will and purpose, and so, as believers, we leave ourselves in the hands of one who Paul says that His peace, which passes all understanding, will keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

  5. Thank you David. I heard Prince Charles comment on the war in Ukraine that ‘He couldn’t believe it could happen in this day and age’. Someone who would not have been shocked or surprised at another war, whatever age it might be, is Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. One of his sermons ‘The Devil and the Nations’ is well worth listening to. He quotes from Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians – ‘We wrestle not against flesh and blood’, etc. Satan is the real culprit behind what is happening and Putin is just an instrument of the evil and the destruction that the devil wants to unleash into our world. Just pray for the Ukrainian people that God will be with them and also with the ordinary Russian people too.
