Newsmax: “President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday ordered the Russian navy in the Mediterranean to establish contact with its French counterparts and work together “as allies” in a campaign against the Islamic State group in Syria.
The move, which is welcome by French President Francois Hollande, is another setback for President Barack Obama who is under fire for calling the Paris attacks ‘a setback’ even as his own counterterrorism chiefs suggest other such attacks are in the ISIS ‘pipeline.’
“It’s necessary to establish direct contact with the French and work with them as allies,” Putin told the military top brass at a meeting after French President Francois Hollande said the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle would be deployed to the eastern Mediterranean.
Opinion: This is getting hard to watch.
We have hundreds of posts on the rise of globalism and the desperate groups, both governmental and private, that are working towards that end.
We have put forth that a puppet-master of supernatural origins is directing the nations and that it would be impossible to believe it, if not for Bible prophecy.
One superpower stands in the way, and the handwriting appears to be on the wall (Daniel 5:5) once again:
The clearest teaching regarding a super dictator reining over a new world order is found in Daniel 7:23-25:
“The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.”
Daniel is describing an earthly kingdom that will overcome nations, leaving that kingdom with absolute power.
“The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.”
The prophet is describing the last days of the Gentile empire; the world will be divided into 10 divisions and the 11th king (Antichrist) will overpower three kings.
“He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.“
He will blaspheme God, attack the Jews, and try to erase any memory of Christ – possibly by changing the Christian calendar that is based on the birth and death of Christ: BC (before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini).
Times, time, and half a time means that the beast, Antichrist, will be free to wreak havoc on a Christ-rejecting world for 3.5 years, or the last half of the 7 year tribulation period.
How interesting that a Google search of 10 regions of the world shows that the UN has already thought of it:
