We see Bible prophecy coming to pass with foreign nations recruiting their future military teammates. An all-star team solidifies victory on all fronts so they believe. It's not a coincidence these nations are written in scripture pointing to the fulfillment of God's word.
According to the Russia Insider article Trump's hands are tied up in knots. I don’t believe Trump is tied up in anything. His hands are free to offer up his 666 sign every few seconds while his triangle hand gestures point below.
Words are meaningless when they are not honoring to God. He sees and knows the heart of every man and He will not be mocked.
Why is it when war has ceased or tapered to a slow drip there is another feud rising on the horizon? Tantrums and fits turn into rages and explosive tempers ignite theaters of war in the hearts of nations. Could it be greed gone a-muck? Covetousness...for power, for possessions, for stolen wealth of another, a beastly appetite with insatiable hunger for more but never satisfied.
God rules the earth and He will set in motion all prophecy written in His word. He is the beginning, the end and is eternal.
This man called the anti-Christ will enter peacefully deceiving many with flatteries but he worships a god of fortresses and war. He is the king of the North. Why the North, possibly because that is where satan has his seat in Pergamum.
Revelation 2:12-13 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
36 “The king will do as he pleases, exalting himself and claiming to be greater than every god, even blaspheming the God of gods. He will succeed, but only until the time of wrath is completed. For what has been determined will surely take place.37 He will have no respect for the gods of his ancestors, or for the god loved by women, or for any other god, for he will boast that he is greater than them all.38 Instead of these, he will worship the god of fortresses—a god his ancestors never knew—and lavish on him gold, silver, precious stones, and expensive gifts.39 Claiming this foreign god’s help, he will attack the strongest fortresses. He will honor those who submit to him, appointing them to positions of authority and dividing the land among them as their reward.
40 “Then at the time of the end, the king of the south will attack the king of the north. The king of the north will storm out with chariots, charioteers, and a vast navy. He will invade various lands and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will enter the glorious land of Israel,[h] and many nations will fall, but Moab, Edom, and the best part of Ammon will escape. 42 He will conquer many countries, and even Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control over the gold, silver, and treasures of Egypt, and the Libyans and Ethiopians[i] will be his servants.
44 “But then news from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in great anger to destroy and obliterate many. 45 He will stop between the glorious holy mountain and the sea and will pitch his royal tents. But while he is there, his time will suddenly run out, and no one will help him.
Revelation 3:7-8 (KJV)
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.
At this time nations have rose in fury against Israel attempting to make them tremble. When Yeshua comes in battle against Israel's enemies, they will meet their demise against the armies of the living God.
Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
I Chronicles 17:21 And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?
Jeremiah 1:10 (KJV) See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
Chessmaster Putin Goes to Cairo as Trump Ties Himself in Knots
"The West will be wary that Putin doesn’t do a Syria on them and checkmate them in Libya too. Washington may appear to be better placed in Libya, since the US’s NATO allies are stakeholders. But all bets are off when Putin enters the center stage."
The United States’ self-goal on Jerusalem opens a window of opportunity for Russia to strengthen its standing as the most creative and positive player in the Middle East politics.
Within four days of President Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem, President Vladimir Putin is undertaking unscheduled ‘working visits’ to Egypt and Turkey.
On Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a lengthy statement criticizing the US decision on Jerusalem and affirming that
We believe a fair and lasting solution to the protracted Palestinian-Israeli conflict should be based on international law, including UN Security Council and General Assembly resolutions that provide for settling all aspects of the final status of the Palestinian territories, including the highly delicate issue of Jerusalem, through direct Palestinian-Israeli talks.
The United States’ new position on Jerusalem can further complicate Palestinian-Israeli relations and the situation in the region… Russia sees East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state and West Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
Russia has positioned itself appropriately on the Arab Street. But the Jerusalem issue is not what is taking Putin to Cairo. The Kremlin readout flagged the need for “providing stability and security in the Middle East and North Africa.” Which means Libya, Sinai and Syria and, to an extent, Yemen – in that order, perhaps.
The point is, the ‘Libyan file’ has re-opened. The Islamist State is relocating to Libya after its crushing defeat in Iraq and Syria. Russia and Egypt sense the imperative need to mobilize quickly and confront the extremist groups in Libya.Both are supportive of the Libyan National Army commander Khalifa Haftar who is ensconced in Benghazi, and whom they (rightly) see as a bulwark against violent extremism in Libya.
The power vacuum in Libya and the growing insecurity in western Egypt threaten the stability of Egypt and President Sisi’s prestige is at stake. On the other hand, Egyptian involvement in Libya affects the balance of power in the Middle East. Interestingly, the Gulf monarchies are also involved in the Libyan crisis.
Enter Trump. The Libyan PM Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj visited the White House on December 1 and Trump discussed with him “opportunities for future partnerships” while emphasizing “America’s continued commitment to defeating ISIS and other jihadist terrorists in Libya” and “to work together to advance Libyan stability and unity.”
On a parallel track, French President Emmanuel Macron had also hosted Sarraj in Paris. (Sarraj has an established reputation as the ‘Ashraf Ghani’ of the Maghreb – a politician imposed by Western powers. Keeping Russia out of Libya is a key template of the Western strategy (as is the case in Afghanistan).
But Russia and Egypt have specific interests, too. Libya used to be a Soviet ally and it has a strategic Mediterranean location facing NATO’s southern tier. As for Egypt, the instability in Libya spills over to the Sinai Peninsula, which is already happening. Sisi’s ambition could be to create a sort of Egyptian protectorate in Cyrenaica against extremist groups. No doubt, with 1200 kilometers of shared border with Libya, Egypt’s security concerns are legitimate.
Egypt is also a net importer of energy. Haftar controls the so-called oil crescent in Libya and the Russian oil giant Rosneft is back in Libya. Clearly, the energy platform provides a potentially lucrative 3-way cooperation between Russia, Haftar and Egypt – although secondary to the military and security dimensions.
Prima facie, Moscow is deferring to the UN in key matters and is also engaging Sarraj’s government in Tripoli. Which suggests that Moscow may be positioning itself as a broker between Libya’s rival partners – Sarraj and Haftar, principally – and eventually to manoeuver itself to make up for the financial losses it suffered in 2011 following the regime change, which is estimated to be in excess of $10 billion in railway contracts, construction projects, energy deals and arms sales.
But the West will be wary that Putin doesn’t do a Syria on them and checkmate them in Libya too. The Libyan situation has its specific features but big-power rivalry is accelerating. Washington may appear to be better placed in Libya, since the US’s NATO allies are stakeholders. But all bets are off when Putin enters the center stage.
For an effective Russian role in the military and security sphere to stabilize Libya, Moscow needs a regional partner. Putin enjoys an excellent rapport with Sisi. Washington will be closely monitoring their talks in Cairo on Monday.
