Gerald Flurry did not Foresee the Revolution in Ukraine

In the last twenty four hours it appears the government of Ukraine has been overthrown by the brave protesters. President Viktor Yanukovych has fled from Kiev. The opposition have taken control of Parliament and called for the president's ouster and elections in May. Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been released from prison and has addressed the brave protesters. 
She addressed the crowds there from her wheelchair. "You are heroes, you are the best of Ukraine," she told the vast crowd before breaking down in tears. ...

But she warned that the protesters should not think their job was done. "Until you finish this job and until we travel all the way, nobody has the right to leave," she said. "Because nobody could do it - not other countries, nobody - could do what you have done. We've eliminated this cancer, this tumour." (BBC News.)
Tragically about eighty-eight people have killed in the recent violence, largely because of heavy handed and brutal actions by the security forces of the Yanukovych government. I think it is premature to say the revolutionaries have won yet, but it is so hard to imagine Yanukovych coming back from this.

This revolution was sparked after Yanukovych axed negotiations for closer relations with the European Union and decided to pursue closer relations with Russia. When this happened Gerald Flurry, who calls himself "That Prophet", viewed this as a sign of the greatness of Vladimir Putin's power. He even declared him to be the Prince of Rosh from Ezekiel 38-39. This topic has been discussed in previous posts here, here, here and here.

Gerald Flurry thought Putin getting Yanukovych was a sign of Putin's great power, instead this move has caused the overthrow of Yanukovych and the protesters have seemed to have seized control of western Ukraine, including the capital city, Kiev. Putin cannot even keep Ukraine in check. The brave protesters took to the streets and have, for now at least, cast the government out of Kiev and western Ukraine and taken power at least there.

Unlike Gerald Flurry I am not going to pretend to know what will happen. Anything could happen. But it must be pointed out that he was totally wrong about this. He did not foresee this revolution occurring. What sort of spirit is he listening to in order to become so wrong about these events?

  1. If it weren't for the fact that Gerald Flurry is a false prophet, he'd be no prophet at all.

    Just like Herbert Armstrong.
