Bible prophecies record that at the end of the age, a great power will arise in the East (Daniel 11:44). This multi-national force will be a 200 million-man army that will destroy a third of mankind (Revelation 9:13-19). It will cross the Euphrates river from the east and bear down on Jerusalem and the King of the North (Revelation 16:12). Events in Asia could lead to the fulfillment of these ancient prophecies.
Students of prophecy need to remember another prophecy that “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). For more about events that will occur at the end of the age, read our booklet Armageddon and Beyond.
