Daniel 11: 40 “In the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him in a pushing, and against him the king of the north will storm with chariots and horsemen and many ships; and he will enter into the lands and sweep through like a flood”
Bible scholars have been able to track the prophetic fulfilment of Daniel chapter 11. Identifying the powers, their wars and activities, how they have different ideologies but both want and enjoy wealth and power.
Are we seeing the next stage of this prophetic fulfilment?
Russia the agressor and the democratic powers trying to hold a line in opposition but because of their material interests always giving ground. It appears to be the case.
Yet there is one thing that unites the Kings, their desire for power, which fuels their need to oppose those who advocate for God’s Kingdom.
Daniel 11: 44 Looms Large
The reports out of the east do not refer to China or Asia because the east is where he will come to his end.
If we look to the parallel prophesy in Revelation the powers of the world unite in opposition and begin a process that leads to their defeat.
Given the final book of the Bible was written in 98 A.D. we have had the time to unravel the mysteries because as Daniel 12: 4 “As for you, Daniel, keep the words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.” explains there is a time period when that information is known.
We are living in an unparalleled period of human history, to unite the world against a common foe the politicians are going to need an easy target. Biblically it is shown to be religion, faith in God has been replaced by jingoism and nationalism.
The riches of the religion are the initial attraction and its power over people. Envy and greed will cause the governments to turn against the structures. Leaving only those with deep-seated faith who are prepared to die for their exclusive devotion to God. We need to ask ourselves? Would I be prepared to die for my faith? Would I betray my faith or recant on my belief to save my life? Remember what the Devil taunted God with. In Job 2: 4 “But Satan answered Jehovah: “Skin for skin. A man will give everything that he has for his life.5 But, for a change, stretch out your hand and strike his bone and flesh, and he will surely curse you to your very face.” Your life for your faith.
In Russia, China, Germany, Eastern Europe, Islamic states and tyrannies Christians have been martyrs since the days of Stephen, James and Peter. 1900 years of faith but billions sold out their faith to false doctrines, philosophical religious concepts, yes they left the Bible and worked on their Creed, their acceptable gift to God. As I once heard it described as their shopping list.
Be very clear because Jesus was in Matthew 7 and Matthew 24 not everyone saying they serve God does so acceptably and they will be caught up in this conflict without protection.
Those who appear to have the least protection who advocate God’s Kingdom know 1 true Christian servant + Jehovah God forms the majority. They understand the truth of the words at Isaiah 54: 17 “No weapon formed against you will have any success, And you will condemn any tongue that rises up against you in the judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, And their righteousness is from me,” declares Jehovah.”
So as we look down the barrel of two opposing human government styles remember the solution isn’t with them. They are puppets, the governments are manipulated by Satanic forces and those who service Jehovah know for a certainty Romans 8: 35 “Who will separate us from the love of the Christ? Will tribulation or distress or persecution or hunger or nakedness or danger or sword?36 Just as it is written: “For your sake we are being put to death all day long; we have been accounted as sheep for slaughtering.”37 On the contrary, in all these things we are coming off completely victorious through the one who loved us.38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life nor angels nor governments nor things now here nor things to come nor powers39 nor height nor depth nor any other creation will be able to separate us from God’s love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Jesus told us to “Keep on the Watch!” When we see the signs to use discernment and take our stand on the side of God’s Kingdom because it will be victorious.
Now you’re asking what convinces this crazed fool to write these stark words. It is simple lives are at stake, the burning building is collapsing but there is still time left for people to find the exit and find salvation.
To choose life is a positive step to do nothing or reject the words of the Bible is the convenient position but like the toad in the pan of boiling water whatever happens as soon as the lid goes on the options have run out.
God said to Israel “Choose Life!” Yes find out how to make that affirmative decision now because the water is boiling, the building is burning and the political system is sinking locate the escape routes now!
