The situation in Libya is changing and the final King of the South will ultimately rise up. The more chaos there becomes in the world in general, and the Middle East/North Africa in particular, the more the stage is being set for the people there to desire to support such a leader. The fact that so many Western nations are encouraging this is of passing interest, yet they likely do not realize what they are encouraging to be created in the Middle East.
Yet, as I have written this entire Spring, I suspect that many of the Middle Eastern nations will end up with temporary governments that ultimately will be replaced and/or will become part of an Arab-North Africa-Islamic confederation, that will be led by the one the Bible refers to as the final King of the South.
The final King of the South may rise up relatively soon–and, according to the Bible, this will be a leader that will cooperate with, then turn against the West (Psalm 83; Daniel 11:27, 40).
Watch (cf. Mark 13:33-37).
