For the first time ever, Putin has officially confirmed reports that he has operational boots on the ground in Syria. Wow.
This momentous admission means nothing on its own, but everything for those who understand Daniel 11.
Syria is not what matters here. What matters is that Putin has an occupational ground force inside the ancient Seleucid Empire, and he just admitted it.
This news comes only a few days after we heard that Egypt has discovered what is likely to be the biggest gas field in the world!
This week is a milestone indeed and shows us without a doubt that Daniel 11 is fast becoming a reality.
Why is this so significant?
In Daniel 11, the angel (probably Gabriel) tells Daniel a prophecy that will occur around “the time of the end”.
Interwoven throughout the prophecy is the “King of the North” who was and is the occupational power of the area of the ancient Seleucid Empire which today includes Syria.
The King of the South is the occupational power of the Ptolemic Empire which includes the territory of Egypt.
Up till now, Russia had only asserted herself as the regional power via proxy. It would supply the Arab states with weapons and act as a diplomatic power broker on behalf of regional states. It also had some military bases in the region but was never actively participating in warfare.
However it wasn’t until yesterday that Putin confirmed that his troops are in Syria and are actively engaged in war against Syrias enemies, making it the first time that Russia has had an operational ground presence within the Seleucid empire bringing him a step closer to becoming the King of the North.
This is a milestone indeed.
Furthermore, we heard this week that Egypt have discovered the biggest gas field in the world.
Why is this important? because Daniel 11 says of the King of the North in the latter day:
He (The King of the North aka Russia) shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt:
Even so, Come Lord Jesus.
