Pastor Troy Brewer, OpenDoor Church, Burleson, TX
War in the Ukraine
One pastor tells the world: “If the church is not relevant at a time of crisis, it is not relevant in a time of peace.”
If necessary, the church premises can be turned into a shelter. We have a good basement. We’re ready to deploy a heating station, as well as provide a place for a military hospital. To make this a reality, we’re creating response teams. If martial law is declared, they’re ready with a strategic supply of fuel, food, and material for dressing wounds. We’ve even gathered information on who in the church are doctors, mechanics, plumbers—even who has wells in case of a water shortage.
We have decided to stay, both as a family and as a church. When this is over, the citizens of Kyiv will remember how Christians have responded in their time of need.
2 Samuel 11 2 X 11 = 22
“In the spring when Kings go to war”
2022 AND WARFARE
1 Kings 20:22 – And the prophet came to the king of Israel and said to him, “Go, strengthen yourself; take note, and see what you should do, for in the spring of the year the king of Syria will come up against you.”
2 Samuel 20:22
2 Chronicles 20:22
On Tuesday, February 24, after months of troop and tank buildups–of grim warnings of violence and vague assurances of peace–and of efforts at diplomacy in Washington, the halls of the United Nations and the capitals of Europe, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began early Thursday morning, with shelling and rocket attacks on several major cities including the capital, Kyiv, and dozens of deaths.
The wider implications of this one war

Commandancy of the The Alamo
Bejar, Feb. 24, 1836
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World-
Fellow Citizens & compatriots-
I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna – I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man – The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken – I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls – I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch – The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days.
If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country – Victory or Death.
William Barret Travis.
Lt. Col. Comdt.
P. S. The Lord is on our side –
Feb. 24, 1836
The Alamo – prophetic foreshadow of the events we are watching on our television screen and the Ukrainian people are living.
The civilian population is taking up arms against this devil and the soldiers who’ve been ordered to take this on February 24, 2022 – exactly 186 years to the day that this happened at the Alamo.
