Please study that as a prelude to the texts on the Last Days.
The text written then eight years ago was as follows.
One of the key moves on the Last Days is foretold by prophecy. We are approaching that situation now and we will see it develop over the next short period of time.
Let us examine what was said in the book of Daniel.
 And as for me, in the first year of Darius the Mede, I stood up to confirm and strengthen him.  "And now I will show you the truth. Behold, three more kings shall arise in Persia; and a fourth shall be far richer than all of them; and when he has become strong through his riches, he shall stir up all against the kingdom of Greece.  Then a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion and do according to his will.  And when he has arisen, his kingdom shall be broken and divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not to his posterity, nor according to the dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom shall be plucked up and go to others besides these.  "Then the king of the south shall be strong, but one of his princes shall be stronger than he and his dominion shall be a great dominion.  After some years they shall make an alliance, and the daughter of the king of the south shall come to the king of the north to make peace; but she shall not retain the strength of her arm, and he and his offspring shall not endure; but she shall be given up, and her attendants, her child, and he who got possession of her.  "In those times a branch from her roots shall arise in his place; he shall come against the army and enter the fortress of the king of the north, and he shall deal with them and shall prevail.  He shall also carry off to Egypt their gods with their molten images and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and for some years he shall refrain from attacking the king of the north.  Then the latter shall come into the realm of the king of the south but shall return into his own land.  "His sons shall wage war and assemble a multitude of great forces, which shall come on and overflow and pass through, and again shall carry the war as far as his fortress.  Then the king of the south, moved with anger, shall come out and fight with the king of the north; and he shall raise a great multitude, but it shall be given into his hand.  And when the multitude is taken, his heart shall be exalted, and he shall cast down tens of thousands, but he shall not prevail.  For the king of the north shall again raise a multitude, greater than the former; and after some years he shall come on with a great army and abundant supplies.  "In those times many shall rise against the king of the south; and the men of violence among your own people shall lift themselves up in order to fulfil the vision; but they shall fail.  Then the king of the north shall come and throw up siegeworks, and take a well-fortified city. And the forces of the south shall not stand, or even his picked troops, for there shall be no strength to stand.  But he who comes against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; and he shall stand in the glorious land, and all of it shall be in his power.  He shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and he shall bring terms of peace and perform them. He shall give him the daughter of women to destroy the kingdom; but it shall not stand or be to his advantage.  Afterward he shall turn his face to the coastlands, and shall take many of them; but a commander shall put an end to his insolence; indeed he shall turn his insolence back upon him.  Then he shall turn his face back toward the fortresses of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found.  "Then shall arise in his place one who shall send an exactor of tribute through the glory of the kingdom; but within a few days he shall be broken, neither in anger nor in battle.  In his place shall arise a contemptible person to whom royal majesty has not been given; he shall come in without warning and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.  Armies shall be utterly swept away before him and broken, and the prince of the covenant also.  And from the time that an alliance is made with him he shall act deceitfully; and he shall become strong with a small people.  Without warning he shall come into the richest parts of the province; and he shall do what neither his fathers nor his fathers' fathers have done, scattering among them plunder, spoil, and goods. He shall devise plans against strongholds, but only for a time.  And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall wage war with an exceedingly great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for plots shall be devised against him.  Even those who eat his rich food shall be his undoing; his army shall be swept away, and many shall fall down slain.  And as for the two kings, their minds shall be bent on mischief; they shall speak lies at the same table, but to no avail; for the end is yet to be at the time appointed.  And he shall return to his land with great substance, but his heart shall be set against the holy covenant. And he shall work his will, and return to his own land.  "At the time appointed he shall return and come into the south; but it shall not be this time as it was before.  For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be afraid and withdraw, and shall turn back and be enraged and take action against the holy covenant. He shall turn back and give heed to those who forsake the holy covenant.  Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and fortress, and shall take away the continual burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate.  He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant; but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action.  And those among the people who are wise shall make many understand, though they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plunder, for some days.  When they fall, they shall receive a little help. And many shall join themselves to them with flattery;  and some of those who are wise shall fall, to refine and to cleanse them and to make them white, until the time of the end, for it is yet for the time appointed.  "And the king shall do according to his will; he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods. He shall prosper till the indignation is accomplished; for what is determined shall be done.  He shall give no heed to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women; he shall not give heed to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.  He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these; a god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.  He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god; those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price.  "At the time of the end the king of the south shall attack him; but the king of the north shall rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through.  He shall come into the glorious land. And tens of thousands shall fall, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom and Moab and the main part of the Ammonites.  He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.  He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall follow in his train.  But tidings from the east and the north shall alarm him, and he shall go forth with great fury to exterminate and utterly destroy many.  And he shall pitch his palatial tents between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, with none to help him.
Note that in Chapter 11 the story develops from the Babylonians and the Medo-Persians to the Greeks and then the Romans and continues on up until the Last Days (see the paper Day of the Lord and the Last Days (No. 192)). We have discussed this section elsewhere but in the last section (in emphasis) the text shows the occupation of the Middle East by this great military power which brings the end time power of the Roman Beast system into conflict after its occupation of the Middle East with the powers to the East and North of the Holy Land. Many US ministers could not understand that the invasion of Russia and the Battle of Stalingrad was to the West and North of Jerusalem and could not have been the area in question. Thus the Nazi invasion of Russia in Operation Barbarossa in WWII did not qualify and could not have qualified for the conflict mentioned in Daniel 11:44-45.
We know that at this time that the great tribulation will occur and the full catastrophe of WWIII will come to fruition. At that time the Messiah will come to save those of us that eagerly await him. The Host of Heaven will imprison the Fallen Host in Tartaros for the Millennium.
The start of the crisis will develop with the attack against Europe by the King of the South which in the Last Days is the Islamic union of the Arab States.
Europe will retaliate and push the Muslim forces out of Europe. The Muslim attacks will concentrate on Rome and two other prongs. Rome will be destroyed. Its end shall come with a flood.
After major conflict, the European system will occupy the Middle East and set up the new religious center at Jerusalem. The Muslims will receive assistance from the Russians but following their defeat the system will be faced with a major crisis in the Central Asian Republics.
It is not all that difficult to understand this last phase.
The area to the North and East of Jerusalem has to be no further west than the Caucasus Mountains and to the east of the Black Sea. It must therefore be East of the Ukraine. The lands South of the Caucasus are Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The area north of the Caucasus between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea is the Southern Part of Russia moving north to the Volga and the Caspian Depression and the Ural Zayyq or Ural River, which drains into the Caspian Sea. The Don is to the West of the Volga and drains into the Black Sea and not the Caspian. The Don is the Western most delineation of the placement of the forces mentioned in Daniel 11:44-45.
Georgia is the northern most of the Semitic nations and its border on the Caucasus marks the division of the allocation of Shem and the regions of Japheth are to the north of that divide.
The East of the Caspian Sea we see the former Republics of the Soviet Union that border Iran, Afghanistan and China with a small section of Tajikistan bordering northern Pakistan and the northern border of the disputed area of Jammu and Kashmir.
These areas are, running from West to east, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with Khazakstan spanning the northern borders of all the others and with China in the South east and the entire Russian Federation in the Northern borders from West to East.
It does not take much imagination to see that the news that alarms the King of the North, that is the Beast power, is mobilisation of the entire Russian Federation to move into and reclaim all the old Soviet Socialist Republics and restore the so-called Russian Empire. This will be encouraged by the Communist Chinese who seek expansion to the West also and will use the Russians to achieve it.
The first step in this reclamation has been undertaken over the period of the Olympic Games in Beijing. Russia has been working behind the scenes for quite some time now to destabilise Georgia and to stop the eastward move of NATO. Russia has taken the gamble that NATO will not act to protect Georgia and they are probably right. However, the EU is faced with a serious problem and Russia will continue to try to swallow the former republics, which include the Baltic Republics.
elarus is forced back into the fold through catastrophe and the Ukraine will be pressured and subject to invasion but will be free after the subjugation of the New Soviet Union under Putin and his bureaucrats.
That war will be a massive Holocaust and will result in the final annihilation of the second expansion of the Russians trying to rebuild the Soviets.
These invasions and pressure tactics by Russia will continue until the emergent Beast Power that is Europe will be forced to take action to consolidate its expanding empire and its energy resources that come in through the Caucasus and the Ukraine. Russia is gambling on the fact that Europe needs the unfettered resources and the Globalists will want them in charge of the Asia Co-prosperity sphere.
The problem is that China wants to control the Asia Co-prosperity sphere and the Globalist morons in Australia are all to eager to oblige by forming the sphere when South East Asia has everything to lose in terms of freedom under such a European like union being pushed by Prime Minster Rudd and his predecessors Hawke and Keating that deliberately destroyed the Australian Defence capacity.
The visionof the Globalists is not shared by the authoritarians of the Russian Federation and the Peoples Republic of China. They are merely used as a means to an end for world domination by a very dangerous authoritarian regime.
Georgia’s desperate plea to Australia to send troops to control the Russian advances was sad in that they appealed to a nation that once could stand up to untold thousands and win and now cannot even engage in normal military operations as a regular armed infantry force. Not only that, they do not have the political will to fight any sustained military action. They do not train sufficient pilots and their aircraft are substandard and they rely on US submarine staff to assist them in their undersea operations. Australia is being destroyed from within by traitors and the Defence Force Senior officers and the retired officers are dumb dogs.
The aggressive behaviour of the Russians is carefully calculated brinkmanship that will bring the area to total war and the devastation that will occur will be massive.
Georgia is just the beginning. Watch now as the two areas of influence build up to an inevitable confrontation that will start from the Caucasus and extend all the way into the Russian Steppes and East to India.
The Globalists will force the destruction of the Islamic states not realising that the conflict will spill into Central Asia after they are pushed out of Europe and the EU occupies the Middle East and Jerusalem. The King of the North has to occupy Israel from Jerusalem right through Gaza and rebuild the entire structure while this build up in the North takes place.
When this Beast Power of the North wipes out the forces from Central Asia we will see them meet their end with the advent of the Messiah and the Host.
 "At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book.  And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.  And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.  But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."  Then I Daniel looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream.  And I said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?"  The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives for ever that it would be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be accomplished.  I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, "O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?"  He said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.  Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand.  And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.  But go your way till the end; and you shall rest, and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days."
So we face three and a half times or 1260 days of terrible holocaust and the power is shattered and it will all be over.
Then the First Resurrection will see us in Jerusalem and the world brought down to Megiddo and subjected.
Then we will rule the nations with a rod of iron and God’s Law will stand forever. From one Sabbath to another and from one New Moon to another we will worship God (Isa. 66:23). We will keep the Feasts of God and at every Feast of Tabernacles each nation will send their representatives to Jerusalem and keep the Feasts in each nation otherwise we will have no rain in due season and suffer the plagues of Egypt and die (Zech. 14:16-19).
That is Scripture and Scripture cannot be broken (Jn 10:34-35).
**** End article of 31/120 of 2008 ***
The things said over this sequence have come to pass and are now developing fully. Russia is now occupying Syria in support of the Assad Regime and President Trump is now in discussion with Vladimir Putin. We will continue with the sequence over the days ahead. Watch and learn as to the events coming to pass.
The subsequent prime ministers, over the next eight years, did little or nothing to solve the problems through Gillard, Rudd, Abbott and Turnbull. The US was ruled by what was effectively a traitor and in 2016 on November 8 President Donald J Trump was elected and then inaugurated on 20 January 2017. He is now trying to untangle the Globalist cess pit that has become the US. The invasion of Europe has occurred and the Globalist Communist Merkel has brought Europe to crisis with the invited invasion of Europe and that invasion has almost crippled UK. France, NL and Italy are in rebellion. The UK voted for Brexit in 23 June 2016 and they are being frustrated by the Globalist traitors in the Labour and the Tory movements as well as the SNP and the Lib-Dems. The Lords are a den of vipers that are seeking to frustrate the freedom of Britain. The courts are open traitors. There may well be civil insurrection. We will explain this over the next few weeks
We will take the sequence over the next ten years to 2027 and then on into the Millennium from 2028-2077 in the Golden Jubilee (See the paper The Golden Jubilee (No. 300).
