Black Rifle Coffee Co. With the US withdrawal from Afghanistan more than 90% complete and on track for the Sept. 11 deadline, both Russia and Iran are positioning themselves as regional power brokers, looking to fill the void left in the wake of America’s departure.

Iranian officials hosted high-level peace talks between the Taliban and Kabul this week in Tehran. And on Wednesday, Moscow pledged assistance to Tajikistan, a post-Soviet country bracing for a flood of refugees from neighboring Afghanistan.

“We are closely watching what is happening in Afghanistan where the situation has a tendency to swiftly deteriorate, including against the backdrop of the hasty exit of American and other NATO troops,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday in Tajikistan.

“Iran is ready to help in the process of dialog between different factions in order to resolve the current conflicts and crises in Afghanistan,” Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said about this week’s Afghanistan peace negotiations, according to Iran’s semi-official Tasnim News Agency.

Opinion: “Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12

Let’s define east in the Bible:

Ezekiel 5:5: “Thus says the Lord God: ‘This is Jerusalem; I have set her in the midst of the nations and the countries all around her”, therefore all points on the compass are based on Israel and specifically Jerusalem, at the center.

From the article:

“Afghanistan shares its borders with Iran, Pakistan, China, and the three post-Soviet countries of Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.” All are east of Israel and eligible to be part of the kings of the east, as well as Australia, Japan, etc.

Zechariah 14:2: For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem …”

Armageddon, the final war, is global with the exception of nations that were obliterated in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39. The world’s armies will be split into 4 power blocs:

  • King of the North
  • King of the South
  • Kings of the East
  • Western alliance of Antichrist

Daniel 11:40: The king of the South (Egypt) will attack the King of the North (Syria)

Daniel 11:41 Antichrist enters Israel the ‘Glorious Land’ and all of Jordan is spared – the Jews of Judea will have fled (Matthew 24:15-16) to Edom (southern Jordan) at the beginning of the great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21).

Daniel 11:42-43 Antichrist attacks the south  – Egypt, Africa

Daniel 11:44 News from the east shall trouble him …

Daniel 11:45 With the great River Euphrates dried up, Antichrist will be vulnerable to attack by the kings of the east. Their arrival will mark the beginning of the greatest war of all history.

“And he (Antichrist) shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas (Israel) and the glorious holy mountain (Jerusalem/Temple Mount) yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.”
