I was listening to podcast 83, you were talking about the ”pushing” from America, which you said there hasn’t been a significant pushing yet. When the king of the north floods over, will we know it’s the empire? I ask because Jehovah’s Witnesses have been led to believe it’s Russia, so will it be obvious who it is?
There is a reason Jehovah’s Witnesses (or anyone else) cannot understand the prophecies. Daniel was told to seal up the book until the time of the end. And the time of the end has not begun; hence, the book is still sealed up, as it were.
There is also a fundamental ignorance about how the world works. The men who publish the Watchtower have never really understood the meaning of the iron and clay feet of the image. They have always simplistically identified Great Britain as a world power. But the British Empire and Great Britain are not the same things. Empires, by nature, are supranational. Since the development of the modern nation-state that marked the end of the feudal system, the European aristocracy has sought to destroy the republican system of sovereign nations. Hold that thought.
Even though the book may be sealed up we can at least try to fit the pieces of the puzzle together correctly. For example, Daniel 11:36 says concerning the king of the north: “The king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt himself and magnify himself above every god; and against the God of gods he will speak astonishing things. And he will prove successful until the denunciation comes to a finish; because what is determined must take place.”
Contrary to what the Watchtower teaches, there is no king of the south on hand when Michael stands up and brings the king of the north to an inglorious end. That is because the king of the north will subjugate his longtime nemesis, even as the verse above indicates: “he will prove successful until the denunciation comes to a finish.” Is the Watchtower ready to boldly predict that Russia is going to conquer the world?
But there is another more glaring problem with the Watchtower’s interpretation. Whereas Daniel says the king of the north will speak astonishing things against the God of gods, the 13th chapter of Revelation depicts the seven-headed beast in the same manner, saying of it: “And they worshipped the dragon because it gave the authority to the wild beast, and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: ‘Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?’ It was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for 42 months. And it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, even those residing in heaven.”
The WT has a completely different identity attached to the head of the beast that is mortally wounded and then revives. The NWT says the king of the north will “speak astonishing things.” Other translations word it differently. The Living English Bible uses the word “monstrous.” The New Revised Standard Version says “horrendous.” This better harmonizes with the blasphemies that the beast will spew.
Furthermore, the seventh chapter of Daniel presents a beast with a little horn that will emerge and it will possess eyes and a mouth that speaks arrogantly. These three prophecies portray the same thing. Furthermore, we have not experienced what is foretold.
Concerning the modern empire, true, it has been headquartered in London and hosted by the British for the past 250 years, but the empire recognizes no national borders or any nation. The days of armies clad in red coats marching all in a row are obviously long gone. That is because the modern method of conquest is not outright invasion, but rather—subversion. Primarily, since the end of WW2, the empire has been waging psychological warfare against humanity. It is what LaRouche termed an empire of the mind—otherwise known as brainwashing. The assault is now becoming intense.
As regards the “pushing,” it did seem to me as though the ongoing conflict between the kings of the north and south was coming to a head at the beginning of this year. There was talk of Trump imposing martial law because of the obvious election shenanigans. Instead, a puppet president was installed and through the FBI the empire sucker-punched the American patriots by luring some rowdy flag-wavers into the Capitol building, which has since been endlessly portrayed in the CIA’s media as an insurrection.
President Bush just recently described his former base of political support as possessing the same foul spirit as the Saudi terrorists who murdered 3,000 people on 9-11. Also, the most outspoken opponents of vaccination are the right-wing patriots. So, millions of American patriots are being demonized as seditionists and terrorists. They are being pushed into a corner, no doubt to provoke outrage and pushback as a pretext for martial law.
In answer to your question, it may not be obvious who the king is when he floods over like a storm. That is because proxies may come into play. It is well known or at least should be, that the Anglo beast organized and trained various terrorist groups and deployed them against nations, like Syria. Given the deceptive methods of the empire, we should not expect some sort of massive D-Day invasion. It seems to me that the initial phase of the final assault has already begun.
Over recent decades, the pharmaceutical industry has quietly become a trillion-dollar monster. Half of the commercials on television are advertising some prescription drug. Most people are on at least one. When the so-called pandemic began the media—bought and paid for by Big Pharma—subjected us to shock and awe, showing horrifying images of people in China falling over dead as they walked down the street. It was all staged. If not, why aren’t people keeling over now?
Because of the power of Big Pharma effective drugs have been disallowed. Just the other day Australia outlawed the use of ivermectin to treat Covid. Not only that, but the Covid tests are totally unreliable. And the drugs and ventilators used to treat patients are killing them. But hospitals are paid more to treat Covid. So anyone who is admitted to the hospital for any illness might be falsely diagnosed with Covid and murdered. Lust for money really is the root of all sorts of evil things.
Then came the mRNA vaccines—the real bioweapon. Why is it that the majority of new Covid cases are infecting those who have been fully vaccinated? Is it because the vaccines do not afford protection, or are the mRNA injections designed to use the host to create more virulent variations of the virus? Or, are people falling ill because of the vaccine itself? In any case, why is it that those who are vaccinated must now be protected from those who are unvaccinated? It makes no sense. Civilization is being pitted against itself. Even the Watchtower is now persecuting those who decide not to take the vaccine.
Everything about this pandemic emergency is fraught with fraud and deception. And we are seeing the emergence of a tyranny never before experienced in the so-called Free world. But what does Daniel say regarding the fierce-looking king? He will keep throwing truth to the earth “and by his cunning he will use deception to succeed; and in his heart he will exalt himself; and during a time of security he will bring many to ruin.” — Daniel 8:26
It is truly laughable, no, more like disgusting and pathetic, that the Watchtower warns Jehovah’s Witnesses to be wary of conspiracy theories.
But about the “pushing.” The prophecy of Joel, which the Watchtower recently relegated to the ancient past with no relevance as regards any future fulfillment, depicts the coming flood as an unstoppable insect invasion that will serve as Jehovah’s mighty military force. Jehovah even refers to it as the northerner. Of note, it describes an army of locusts that will climb over walls and come into every home as if through open windows.
Are we to expect a literal home invasion? No. Not necessarily. Because of the complexities of the modern world, everyone can be dispossessed from afar. Perhaps our Internet portals are the “windows” through which the devourers come. We should expect the empire to crash the Internet and the financial system and foreclose on everyone. There are probably terror cells already in place that will suddenly appear when ordered. Perhaps Chinese soldiers will be secretly spirited into targeted nations to destroy the patriots and resisters.
When the smoke clears the United Nations will be ruling the world. Then it will be obvious who the king of the north is.
