End-time Bible prophecies indicate that a coalition of nations from east and north of Jerusalem (Daniel 11:40-44; Revelation 16:12) will bring a huge army into the Middle East to confront the armed forces of a European beast power (Revelation 9:14-16). Exactly how these prophecies will be fulfilled remains to be seen. However, as world events continue to speed up, we may be witnessing how this group of kings “from the east and the north” (where Russia and China are located) will come together. “Pakistan has called off three high-level meetings with Washington, as experts warn that President Donald Trump’s new Afghanistan policy risks driving Islamabad closer towards Beijing” (Financial Times, August 28, 2017). Analysts “also warn the US policy is likely to push Pakistan closer into the embrace of China… They point out that instead of going to the US, Mr Asif is travelling to China, Turkey and Russia.” A senior Pakistani official warned, “In this hour of need once again, we have China standing firmly with us as president Trump threatens to bring the Afghan war to Pakistan.”
These current moves should not be surprising for students of Bible prophecy. To learn more about future developments on the Eurasian continent, be sure to read or listen to Revelation: The Mystery Unveiled.
