08 The Great Europe vs Asia War

The New Federal Europe Attacks Asia

Today America is planning for a existential conflict with Asia and the Asian nations are coalescing through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Current as of Nov 2017

  1. Member States: Kazakhstan. China. Kyrgyzstan. Russia. Tajikistan. Uzbekistan, India, Pakistan.
  2. Observer States: Afghanistan. Belarus, Iran. Mongolia. 
  3. Dialogue Partners: Armenia, Azurbijan, Cambodia, Nepal. Turkey. Sri Lanka.

While Turkey will ally with the New Europe the nations of Asia will ultimately ally together and will be seen as a threat by Europe.

This organization is a developing economic and military partnership.

The American actions in the Middle East and plans to build up in Asia, after Balkanizing the Mideast nations to control the regions resources, are a part of this existential geopolitical struggle of the 21st century.

When America is taken out of the equation and in a state of collapse, the New Europe will find itself facing the rapidly growing power of Asia and in its third year will launch a massive attack on the Asian association.

Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him [the New Europe]: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

The final consortium of Asian nations will absorb the blow, after which they will counterattack against the New Europe and its allies and a vast army from Asia will begin advancing towards Europe.

This will cause the political and religious leaders to move to Jerusalem.

Daniel 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

When these two leaders move to Jerusalem the Asian armies will wheel south and pass through the countries of Psalm 83 who are allied with the New Europe.

Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Arabia, Jordan, Gaza and Palestine will be overrun and devastated by a huge Asian army of unimaginable numbers, which will then mass before Jerusalem to destroy the two leaders of the New Europe and their last stronghold at Jerusalem.

The Armies of Asia Will Sweep Through the Middle East to Attack Jerusalem

At this point in the early part of the fourth year, the resurrection of the dead takes place and Christ takes them to the Father’s throne in heaven, (Rev 15, Rev 19) for the marriage of the Lamb, while the seven last plagues are poured out. 

The sixth plague opens up the way for the armies of Asia to wheel south and sweep through the Middle East to surround Jerusalem where the miracle working false prophet and the political leader have fled with their remaining forces at Jerusalem. 

Not all Jews have yet been deported and a significant number of Jews also remain in the city while large numbers of Palestinians, Jordanians, Europeans and others also remain in the city. 

Revelation 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

As the Euphrates dries up demons go forth to encourage these armies to turn south to Jerusalem to confront the coming Christ. Of course these are lying spirits and may be saying that a final blow can be struck against the beast in Jerusalem where he has taken refuge; or any similar thing.

16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Outside Jerusalem an Asian army in the tens of millions will be massed and at the ready for the final assault.

The Daily Sacrifice

God told Daniel that a prince who would come later, would stop the Daily Sacrifice;  This was accomplished by the Roman prince Titus who stopped the Daily by destroying the Temple as per Matthew 24. 

See The 70 Weeks Prophecy (Daniel) which explains how the first half of the last [70th] week has already been fulfilled and only the last 3 1/2 years remains to be fulfilled.  

The prophecy then said that the Daily Sacrifice would REMAIN stopped until the consummation of the age [the coming of Christ to cleanse the mount and build the Ezekiel Temple].  

The scriptures cannot be broken; No, there will not be a Temple built nor is it necessary to restore the physical Daily Sacrifice before Christ comes.  

The scriptures cannot be broken:  The prophecy of the stopping of the Daily Sacrifice referred to the destruction of the Temple at the end of the 3 1/2 year siege of Jerusalem [during which time the faithful hid in Pella] in the first century.  

The Daily was stopped by Prince Titus with the destruction of the Temple AFTER the first 3 1/2 years and BEFORE the latter day 3  1/2 years, between the two halves of the 70th week.  

Yes, the first 3 1/2 years of the 70th week have already been fulfilled!  

NO, there will not be 3 1/2 years from the declaration of a peace deal BEFORE the tribulation begins, the tribulation will begin immediately after a Mideast peace is achieved (1 Thess 5:3, Mat 24:15).

The scriptures cannot be broken; The prophecy that Christ would come to his Temple, was referring to the faithful in whom God’s Spirit dwells as the spiritual Temple to which Christ will come.  For a study about the Temple click this link.

The Asian Army and Ezekiel 38 – 39

The vast majority of professing Christianity DOES NOT understand the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39 because they have been deceived into thinking of this as exclusively a tribulation premillennial fulfillment. 

Part of the confusion comes from the fact that the order of events is reversed in the designation of chapters 38 and 39. This prophecy is dual; with Ezekiel 39 being a fore-type fulfillment ending the tribulation just BEFORE the millennium, and later it will be fulfilled in its Ezekiel 38 fullness AFTER the millennium!

Since this prophecy is mainly about Gog and Magog we should begin by identifying them.

The Madai are identified as the Medes who ruled with the Persians and are now located in Ukraine, where a struggle is going on between Russia and the EU for control of the Medes. 

Meshech is simply an old spelling for Moscow the capital of Russia today.

Likewise Tubal is the old spelling of  Tobolsk the capitol of Siberia today. 

Magog are the Mongolian and Chinese people.

This is a DUAL prophecy:  First fulfilled in a fore-type at the end of the tribulation (Ezekiel 39); and later completely fulfilled AFTER the millennium (Ezekiel 38). 

Ezekiel 38 comes AFTER the Millennium

Ezekiel 39  The Premillennial Coming of Christ 

Ezekiel 39 is about the coming of Christ as King of kings, to destroy the armies of Europe and Asia gathered at Jerusalem

The Biblical account of the tribulation and the Asian armies.

Remember that the beast and false prophet first conquer Israel / Egypt and then later in the third year they attack Asia (Dan 11:42)

The [beast] ruler of the New Europe to attack Asia in the third year of his power.  Asia will endure the European attack, and will respond, striking and devastating Europe and will then pour through the Middle East to attack the final false prophet and the political leader at Jerusalem. 

In doing this the Asian armies will destroy the New Europe and all her Mideast allies.  Finally Messiah the Christ will come to destroy all the enemies of the righteousness of zeal to learn and live by every Word of God (Zec 14). 

Notice how the order of events is reversed in the designation of chapters 38 and 39. This prophecy is dual; with Ezekiel 39 being a fore-type fulfillment ending the tribulation just BEFORE the millennium, and later it will be fulfilled in its Ezekiel 38 fullness AFTER the millennium!

Only one sixth of the invaders will survive.

Ezekiel 39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

This verse alludes to Revelation 19 and the coming of Christ.

39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.  39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly [securely] in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

The coming of Messiah and the deliverance of Israel will turn them to true godliness!  They will not again rebel at the keeping of every Word of God, like physical and spiritual Israel do today.

39:7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. 39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: 39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

The graves of Gog in Israel

39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.

39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. 39:13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. 39:14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.

39:15 And the passengers [travelers] that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. 39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.

Revelation 19:17   And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

The kings of the east along with the remaining forces of the New Europe will turn and fight Christ at his coming.

19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Ezekiel 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. 39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. 39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 39:20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

All the earth will see the power and glory of Messiah the Christ when he resurrects many of the dead to spirit and eternal life and defeats the massive armies gathered to fight against him at his coming;  humanity will then sincerely repent and accept him as king of kings, but another lesson will be needed one thousand years later as revealed in Ezekiel 38, because humanity will have become complacent and self-righteous after a thousand years of peace and prosperity.

39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

Israel will then turn to the Eternal in sincere repentance and the nations of the earth will also turn from their wickedness to the Mighty One of Jacob.

Ezekiel 39 is about the coming of Christ and the conversion of all Israel and the grafting of all humanity into a repentant and spiritual Israel (Joel 2:28).

39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward [forever more]. 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.

39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them [allowing them to be corrected in great tribulation].

39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; 39:26 After that they have borne their shame, [have been corrected for their sin]  and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 39:28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen [for all our abominations]: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.

Then God will pour out his Spirit on all Israel (Jer 31:31) and on all flesh (Joel 2:28).

39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD. 

 

Revelation 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen [soldiers] were two hundred thousand thousand [200 million]: and I heard the number of them.

The entire army is put at 200 million men, however they will be deployed across the entire region and not all of them will be massed immediately outside Jerusalem.
