Eurasian Economic Union: India wants in. Is this consistent with what G.G. Rupert wrote?


India is interested in Vladimir Putin’s Eurasian Union:

ASTANA – India and Kazakhstan are looking at a variety of mining, mineral and oil and gas projects, paving the way for bilateral agreements to be signed during Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s visit to the country early in July. …

A Joint Working Group is to be established to find transport and logistics linkages.

‘We also reviewed developments in trade and investment. It was decided that we would work together within the framework of the Joint Study group to consider the feasibility of a comprehensive economic partnership agreement between India and the Eurasian Economic Union, of which Kazakhstan is a member,” Pradhan said.

India is keen to join the Eurasian Economic Union … to push trade through India’s west coast via Iran to the central Asian countries. …

Minister of state for commerce and industry Nirmala Sitharaman led a high-powered delegation to the annual St Petersburg International and Economic Forum (SPIEF) held on 18-20 June 2015 at St Petersburg, Russia, which included a 30-member business delegation from CII.

The minister held bilateral discussions with Viktor Khristenko, chairman of the Eurasian Economic Union, Denis Manturov, minister of industry and trade and Andrey Slepnev, member (trade), Eurasian Economic Union.

India also signed a joint statement for establishing a joint study group between India and the Eurasian Economic Union, which will study the feasibility of a free-trade agreement.

The study group will submit its report within a year regarding the feasibility of an FTA between India and the Eurasian Economic Union.

India is already negotiating the International North-South Transport Corridor Project (INSTC) with Russia to promote bilateral trade.

Relatively few in the West even know that there is a Eurasian Union, let alone know much about it.  As far as Armenia goes, the Russians hint that Westerners are stirring up problems there:

Protesters, demanding the cancellation of a 17 percent electricity price hike that is set to take effect on August 1, have spent another night on the streets of Armenian capital. The demonstrators have refused to meet with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan to discuss their grievances, opting instead to continue their street sit-in that began last Friday.

In the midst of these protests, and with the Ukrainian political crisis still smoldering on Russia’s doorstep, attention is being given to some of the non-governmental organizations operating in the country. Many of these NGOs have been funded by the United States ever since Armenia voted for its independence following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

“The Choice is Yours” organization, for example, which is fully funded by Washington, actually performs in the election processes outside the territory of Armenia. In December 2004, during the third round of presidential elections in Ukraine, for example, over 100 independent observers from Armenia were sent to a province in Ukraine to monitor the elections. By the time the 2010 Ukrainian elections rolled around, the number of Armenian election monitors from this US-funded group appeared to more than triple.

The Bible shows that a confederation of leaders in 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.

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 and Herbert W. Armstrong 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.

Notice something about a Eurasian force from the late Herbert W. Armstrong:

The second woe, with its symbols of horses and horsemen…and is also referred to as an event in the Day OF THE Eternal in Joel 2:4. This refers to a tremendous military power–also to the NORTH–due north! They come with an army of two hundred million! Think of it–an army of two hundred million! World events are now moving rapidly to make possible a Communist Eurasian army of that unbelievable manpower! (Armstrong HW. The Book of Revelation Unveiled at Last! 1972 edition. p. 38-39).

It should be noted that all of that Eurasian army does not need to be ‘communist’ (though much of the land that Herbert Armstrong referred to were under communist domination when he wrote that).

The time will come when a confederation of Russia, India, China, and others in Asia will form.  It may be that India is now taking another step towards that as it looks into joining Russia’s Eurasian Economic Union.

The ‘unintended consequences’ of of Western sanctions against Russia is pushing it to look more to the East than the West.  That is consistent with what the Bible shows will happen in the end of this age.
