India makes a deal with Belarus as it inches towards the Eurasian Union


We are getting closer to the final ‘The Times of the Gentiles.’ India took another step towards increased cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union:

New Delhi, Sep 27 The government today approved signing and ratification of the Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) between India and Belarus to boost investment.

“The Treaty is likely to increase investment flows between the two countries,” Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said after the Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. …

The signing and ratification of a BIT between the two countries will work as a strategic initiative as Belarus is the member of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

India has already initiated the BIT text with the Kyrgyz Republic and is in talks with the Russian Federation for a new BIT, based on the Model BIT text.

India has expressed interest in the past. Here is something from a few years ago:

Putin … said that, during Monday’s visit of the Indian prime minister to Moscow, the prime minister asked him to consider the possibility of signing a free trade area agreement with the Customs Union.

Notice a couple of items from two years ago:

June 18, 2015

MOSCOW: India will sign a free trade agreement with Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) to boost trade and economic ties with the region, an Indian diplomat said on Thursday.

“We are definitely signing this agreement”, Amit Telang, first secretary of India’s embassy in Russia told TASS news agency.

The agreement will be signed at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2015).

July 8, 2015

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the issue of a possible free trade deal between India and the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

UFA (Sputnik) — Putin and Modi also discussed cooperation in areas such as nuclear energy and the military-technical sphere.

India is Russia’s largest military-technical partner, with an estimated $4.78 billion worth of weapons and military equipment, including nuclear submarines, jet fighters and battle tanks, purchased in 2013, according to Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.

India has interest.

Although the EAEU is still relatively small, Vladimir Putin wants all the former Soviet republics in the Eurasian Economic Union. Plus, he also wants other Asian nations.

Vietnam, Mongolia, and other nations in Asia have expressed interest in the EAEU.

The Bible supports that there will be a confederation of nations tied to a northern power, like Russia:

50:41 “Behold, a people shall come from the north,
And a great nation and many kings
Shall be raised up from the ends of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance;
They are cruel and shall not show mercy.
Their voice shall roar like the sea;
They shall ride on horses,
Set in array, like a man for the battle,
Against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 “The king of Babylon has heard the report about them,
And his hands grow feeble;
Anguish has taken hold of him,
Pangs as of a woman in childbirth…”(Jeremiah 50:41-43).

The above shows that a coming European empire (the “daughter of Babylon”) is to be destroyed by a northern (apparently Russian led) force. This force that has “kings” from “the ends of the earth” will apparently be those from the far north and the far east. This is consistent with Daniel 11:44. And the “many kings” is consistent with the “kings of the sunrise” of Revelation 16:12 (literal translation).

Notice that the “king of Babylon,” the “daughter of Babylon,” heard reports about them. This is totally consistent with the King of the North being troubled by “news from the east and the north” (Daniel 11:44).

Although he had some prophetic and timing misunderstandings, here is something from over a century ago by 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)

So, the idea of cooperation between India, Russia, and other Asian nations is not a new theological concept.

Although India is not north of Europe, it is most certainly east of it–and the Bible teaches that powers to the north AND east will trouble the final European empire (cf. Daniel 11:44).

Notice also the following:

13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed–by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths (Revelation 9:13-18).

Only Asian forces, such as those in China and India and likely many others, could put together a 200,000,000 man army. India, China, and others in Asia will apparently align themselves with a Russian confederation against the European Empire. The fact that India is expressing some limited interest now may mean that it will be more willing to have greater cooperation with a Russian-led block in the future that is consistent with biblical prophecy.

As more countries consider the Eurasian Union, this organization may well be part of the confederation that will fulfill end time Bible prophecy.
