Thursday, October 20

In the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him [the king of the north] in a pushing.—Dan. 11:40.


A large portion of the prophecy about the king of the north and the king of the south has already been fulfilled, so we can be confident that the rest of it will also come true. To understand the prophecy recorded in Daniel chapter 11, we need to keep in mind that it identifies only rulers and governments that have had a direct influence on God’s people. And even though God’s servants make up only a small portion of the world’s population, they are often at the center of major world events. Why? Because Satan and his entire system have one prime objective—conquering those who serve Jehovah and Jesus. (Gen. 3:15; Rev. 11:7; 12:17) In addition, the prophecy recorded by Daniel must harmonize with other prophecies in God’s Word. In fact, we can come to the right understanding of Daniel’s prophecy only if we compare it with other portions of the Scriptures. w20.05 2 ¶1-2

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

It sure is exciting to life in a time of Bible prophecy being fulfilled. I remember a decade or so ago when Russia was putting forward a softer image and was less in the center of world affairs I thought perhaps the KotN had changed. But seeing the belligerence with which they have acted in Ukraine, first in Crimea and now in the rest of Ukraine you can see how well the Russian government fits the prophecy with their aggression and devotion to the "god of fortresses". It's hard to see our dear Brothers and Sisters caught up in the persecution, but this too is Bible prophecy and we should rejoice in it's fulfillment. It only serves to strengthen our faith and our resolve to see this system come to it's end.
