Pat Robertson retired as the host of “The 700 Club” several months ago, but returned recently to share his take on the current Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Robertson claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been “compelled by God” in the invasion of Ukraine, and that this invasion is leading to the fulfillment of a Biblical prophecy in which there is an end of times battle in Israel.
Robertson has claimed that other end of times scenarios would occur before in 1982, 2006, 2007, and 2020.
