The Prophecy of a Ten-Nation Confederacy
In early January, I mentioned the top 5 things I was keeping an eye on. Well, here’s another one we should watch closely. Bible prophecy tells us that in the last days there will be a revived but unstable Roman Empire of sorts (see Daniel 2:29-45). Daniel and Revelation also inform us that in the last days there will be a 10-king confederacy. (Daniel 2:31-35, 40-45; 7:7-8, 19-24 ; Revelation 13:1-2; 17:3, 7, 12-16).
Students of Bible prophecy have speculated about whether this will be 10 nations, 10 world regions, or simply 10 elite leaders. When the European Union emerged (with 6 original members) and eventually grew to 10 member nations, prophecy students were sounding alarms—until the EU grew past 10 nations (current EU members total 28 nations). Then the excitement died down a bit.
Another development that confused some prophecy students was the rise of nationalism with Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. It seemed that globalism (the collective push toward a one-world government and currency) was speeding down the tracks toward its prescribed end-time format, but hit a major speed bump with those two surprising events. Would the EU dissolve? Would America return to her roots?
I came across an article today that piqued my interest if it proves true. Given everything else going on (70th Anniversary of Israel’s rebirth, Ezekiel 38 players completely aligned, a Pope who fits the spirit/character and ideology of the false prophet to a “T”, the threats of war from Iran, the constant calls for peace and safety, the explosion of end-time era technology, and SO MANY other things), I have to admit, this article really got my attention.
Rather than being speed bumps in the road toward the end-time landscape, Brexit and the strange election of Donald Trump may have actually been accelerators toward the conditions that need to fall into place. Prophecy expert and Pastor, J.D. Farag has long sensed that would be the case.
Emmanuel Macron, whom many have shown to have the exact characteristics (nationality, background, globalist worldview, and several other qualifications noted in passages about the future/evil end-time ruler) is gathering the leaders of exactly ten nations to form an official coalition in June (just one month after Israel’s 70th anniversary—a very prophetic date for several reasons) to form a “common European intervention force, defense budget, and doctrine.” Did I mention it will consist of exactly 10 nations?
Please hear me—I’m not playing pin-the-tail-on-the-antichrist (even if Macron’s first name means “god with us” and he has apparently compared himself to the ancient Roman “god” Jupiter), and I think we need to be very careful not to speculate too much. Perhaps he’s the guy that organizes the 10 nations. Perhaps the 10 nations won’t come together as planned. We’ll have to wait and see. That said however, this news of a 10-nation confederacy has my attention simply because of the avalanche of other prophetic developments all occurring at the exact same time.
Trumps soon-to-be-revealed “deal of the century” has the hallmarks of the covenant the Bible says the antichrist will later enforce. A ten-nation union in the geographical area of the ancient Roman Empire is set to unite, Israel was reborn in a day (in 1948) seventy years (Matthew 24’s generation) ago, the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and the impending US exit from the Iranian nuclear deal, all of the players and conditions for the Ezekiel 38 war are currently in place, all of the end-time technology is in place, and so may other things I don’t even have space to include here. You simply can’t make this stuff up. ALL of the key things that prophecy teachers have been studying with increasing intensity over the past 40 years are in place or quickly moving into position right now. That is not something that should be easy to brush off.
If you have never studied Bible prophecy, that may all just seem coincidental…or even crazy. That’s ok. Please check it out for yourself. See what the Bible has to say about these things. I think you will be as surprised as I am to find today’s news written 2600 years ago. Life is short and often difficult. If you have never put your faith in Jesus and accepted his offer of salvation, please do so now. If you have questions about how to become a Christian, I would love to talk with you.
All of the proverbial road signs tell us we are getting closer and closer to our exit ramp. Scripture teaches that the rapture is an imminent event that can occur at anytime. Fulfilled prophecy proves the Bible is not a fairy tale. One day—possibly very soon—supernatural events beginning with the rapture will explode onto the scene and the paranormal will become the new normal. Don’t take my word for it. Please investigate these things for yourself and pray for eyes to see and ears to hear.
