Eurasian Economic Union: Pakistan wants in; is this consistent with what G.G. Rupert wrote?

Pakistan is interested in Vladimir Putin’s Eurasian Economic Union:

August 26, 2015

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif – who is on an official visit to Kazakhstan – has said that Pakistan is interested in signing a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).

“Pakistan wants to sign a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union. This will promote fruitful cooperation between Pakistan’s business community and the union,” he said in an interview with the Kazakh Express. Nawaz said that Kazakhstan can be a very helpful in maintaining the free trade agreement, since being an active member of the association.

The Eurasian Economic Union – comprising Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia – is an international organisation to streamline the flow of goods and services between its member countries. More than 40 countries and international organisations, including China, Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia, have expressed interest in creating a free trade area with the union, according to Russian Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukaev.

Relatively few in the West even know that there is a Eurasian Economic Union.

The EEU officially formed on January 1, 2015.

India established a task force a couple of months ago as it is also looking to be a member (see Eurasian Economic Union: India wants in).

The Bible shows that a confederation of leaders in the East (Revelation 16:12) will form and have Russian dominance (cf. Jeremiah 50:41-43). Because of the coming formation of a 200,000,000 man army (Revelation 9:16, this strongly points to that army having Indian support–and that would likely also include Pakistan.

The reality is that the Church of God has seen a confederation of Eurasian nations coming together for a long time. While this has been believed since biblical times, COG leaders such as G.G. Rupert wrote about it last century.

Although he had some prophetic and timing misunderstandings, here is something from G.G. Rupert (a Church of God leader in the early 20th century with distant ties to CG7):

The Yellow Peril; or, the Orient versus the Occident

Russia has today one hundred and twenty-nine millions of population. Persistently, carrying out a plan conceived more than forty years ago, she has quietly occupied every position in Asia which would eventually enable her to annex the four hundred millions of China; then the two hundred and eighty millions of India, and finally the eight millions of Persia. …

Men talk of ‘the Yellow Peril.’ They do not seem to see that it is through Russia, and through Russia only, that the yellow races might become a peril to the world at large. …

Russia has a wonderful assimilating power. Having absorbed the tribes of central and northern Asia, and moulded them into Russian legions to carry forward the Russian advance, it does not require a prophet to see a day when with Russo-Chinese armies, Russia would drive the Germans, the French, Italians and other Europeans into the seas and the distant mother countries would be powerless to prevent Russia then in control of 400,000,000 Chinese. …

Armageddon is rapidly drawing near. …

Mrs. Helen E. Gardner, who has been six years in touring the world, has spent considerable time in China. She says of this country: “China is going to give us a tremendous surprise. It will be a surprise such as the world has never known.” …

As we view the history of the world for many centuries through the history as given by the pen of inspiration, we will now seek to show the teaching of the Bible concerning the three great divisions of the world in the last days, the movement of the nations, and the issue be- tween them as they shall gather to the great battle of Armageddon.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false . prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” Rev. 16:13-16.

The events here described take place under the sixth plague. When the vial of the seventh plague is poured out, there comes a voice out of the temple of heaven out of the throne, saying, “It is done.” This movement is the greatest and the crowning event of all earth’s history. …

The prophet Jeremiah, in speaking of this power, uses this expression, “For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the Lord.” Jer. 1:15.

This expression shows there are many families of kingdoms clustered together, which we understand must include all the territory controlled by the dragon power, which would include all the kings of the East, such as China, India, and any others that might exist in the dragon territory. …

China. It is the oldest nation in the world, and from the prophet’s standpoint it would come from far, or the end of the earth, lying eastward. It is a mighty nation… in the sixteenth chapter of Revelation, Japan, China and India are called the kings of the East. …

Russia is the land of Magog which was the grandson of Noah. It is an ancient nation. But even a more ancient Nation is to be joined to them, namely, China, Japan and India with others. (Rupert GG. The Yellow Peril; or, the Orient versus the Occident, Third ed. c.1911)

An alignment between Russia and India is consistent with G.G. Rupert’s writings.  What about Pakistan?

Well, there was no nation called Pakistan when G.G. Rupert wrote what he did.  Pakistan formed when many of the Muslims in India decided that they did not want to be under Indian rule and many located to the eastern and western border areas.  For decades they were know as East and West Pakistan.  East Pakistan finally changed its name to Bangladesh.

The time will come when a confederation of Russia, India, China, and others in Asia will form.

The Bible tells about the times of the Gentiles:

25… Gentiles, who do not know You…they have eaten up Jacob, Devoured him and consumed him, And made his dwelling place desolate. (Jeremiah 10:25)

23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:23-24)

2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. (Revelation 11:2)

What about Pakistan?

Pakistan is a Gentile nation.

Pakistan is also an Islamic nation.

Since the Bible shows that some of the descendants of Phut are shown as part of a failed confederation involving Egypt in Ezekiel 30:1-9 and this appears to be an Islamic confederation, it is likely that Pakistan, to a degree, may support the King of the South in Daniel 11:40–though probably not too closely.

Pakistan may actually directly or indirectly temporarily support the final King of the South to the point that it may even provide some nuclear support (see Pakistan’s Nuclear Weapons, Saudi Arabia, and the King of the South). Yet, since the “European beast,” who is also the final King of the North will defeat the King of the South, Pakistan will likely suppress its ties to Islam around that time–at least for a while.

Also, notice that the Bible teaches:

3b And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast…7b And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:3-4,7-8).

However this worship of the coming beast power will not last–thus various ones of Indian backgrounds will sadly be part of this. Yet, according to the Bible, those from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka will likely rebel (Revelation 9 & 16).

It seems likely that to fulfill Daniel 11:44 and Revelation 16:12, that those of Indian heritage will actually cooperate militarily against the future European Beast power. And they will do this apparently by supporting a coming confederation biblically known as the “kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12).  This may include Pakistan.

More on how those of Indian ancestry while be affected according to prophecy is also discussed in the article, Asia in Prophecy.

Perhaps I should mention that one of the results of Western sanctions against Russia is that they pushing Russia to look more to the East than the West. While the West is focused a lot this week on stock markets (including China’s), major economic realignments are usually more prophetically significant.

Many Gentile nations are trying to get together and the final time of the Gentiles is getting closer.
