The Ten Muslim Nation Confederacy – The Same Ten Nation Confederacy Spoken By Prophet Daniel?
Posted by addisethiopia on March 30, 2015
This war is no longer a war about Yemen, but a formation of a Sunni coalition they call it Al-Tahaluf Al-A’shari, literally the Ten Nation Confederacy which the media in English calls Ten Sunni-led Arab states.
In response to U.S. abandonment of Saudi Arabia and a response to Iran’s threat to the region, the Sunni Muslim world has risen to form a major unified force. The Coalition never informed the U.S. of its actions in Yemen fearing the U.S. is flirting with Iran.
Caricature of this new alliance is shown in the Arab media as a right-arm fist portruding out of the earth with the mark “There is No God But Allah and Muhammad Is His Messenger” the flag, badge and emblem of Islam stemming from Saudi Arabia. It is the pride of Muslims to mark their right arms and foreheads with the mark of Islam. It also reminds of Daniel 4 which speaks of Babylon leaving the tree stump of its roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze while re-arising, not in ancient Babel in Iraq, but in Dumma, Kedar and Arabia as Isaiah 21 prophesied prior to God’s final judgment “Babylon is fallen is fallen” (Isaiah 21:9, Revelation 18:1-2, Revelation 14:8) in which Iran will finally give it a death blow.
One wonders is this what the Bible speaks of, the ten horns representing ten kings, and all is left, is an eleventh, a little horn which comes up among them who is the Antichrist (Daniel 7:8, 11)?
One must admit, the temptation to make such declarations can arise as we see the events unfold on daily basis, but let the wise increase in patience which is the wisdom in not rushing to conclusion. The bronze nails in Daniel 7:19 points to a Grecian, not European entity. And with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze (Daniel 7:19), there are ten nails and only time will tell if 20 to 30 other states (iron teeth) joins the ten nation confederacy under this umbrella. And we have additions, foreign ministers from 22 Arab countries agreed to form a unified military force on Thursday, approving a draft resolution designed to counter growing security threats in the region.
Is what we see a prelude to something greater, or if Erdogan of Turkey becomes more active in this confederacy, or if even this confederacy grows to be some fulfillment, is very interesting, but only time will tell. “Its nails of bronze” must be alluding to the correlation of the ten toes to the Grecian Empire. This is deduced because bronze as is accepted by biblical scholars represents Greece which today is Asia Minor. Revelation 17 also speaks of the ten kings will be joined by another king—an eleventh (the little horn)—who is the Antichrist, the ruler over the entire fourth kingdom (Daniel 7:8, 11).
Mecca is what drives this ten nation confederacy in Yemen, is the latest front in a growing regional contest for power with Iran that is also playing out in Syria, where Tehran backs Assad’s government, and Iraq, where Iranian-backed Shiite militias are playing a major role in fighting.
And this confederacy, as it seems, means business. Al Arabiya reported a massive 150,000 Saudi ground troops have been mobilized along with fighter jets and naval units, as part of the move codenamed, “Operation Decisive Storm.” Egyptian TV reportedly said that the Arab League will coordinate with the chiefs of staff of the various Arab nations’ armies to organize the new Ten Nation Confederacy force within one month. Egyptian officials also announced that a ground invasion of Yemen will follow the airstrikes. This, including a naval blockade has been imposed by the Saudi ship Asifat Al-Hazm (Firm Storm) on a strait that connects the Red Sea to the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, and provides passage to the Mediterranean Sea. The strait is used by Egypt, Sudan, Jordan, Yemen, Djibouti and Saudi Arabia, among other nations.
Four Egyptian vessels were spotted en route to secure the Gulf of Aden, off the city where President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi was based out of after leaving the capital city of Sanaa, and before being forced to flee the country. Both Sudan and Morocco announced that this war is in defense of their beloved Mecca. The Sunni Alliance fears Shiite talk of shift from Mecca to Karbala. Any harm on Saudi Arabia means to harm Islam’s Qibla, the direction to the image, the meteor in Mecca which over a billion Muslim prostrate towards daily.
And such support for this Sunni coalition is not only by secularists, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the largest body of Islamic states, affirmed its support for the deal and the ten state confederacy.
Iran’s rise to power, forced the Arab world to respond to the unprecedented threats on multiple fronts in Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Syria, all of which are in end-times context biblically. In Yemen (biblical Teman) Houthi militants believed to have Iranian backing have taken over large swathes of the country including its official capital. In Libya (also becomes part of a future league in Ezekiel 30,38) a civil war is raging between a government that controls the capital of Tripoli, and the internationally recognized government — aided by Arab and Egyptian airstrikes — based out of the city of Tobruk. In Syria (see Isaiah 17) a civil war has raged on for four years between President Bashar Assad’s government, which is backed by Iran (biblical Persia), and loose coalitions of militants, as well as ISIS which has taken over significant portions of Iraq and Syria, has expanded into Libya, and has been drawing membership from across the Islamic world, recently gaining the loyalty of Nigerian Boko Haram and claiming responsibility for a deadly terror attack in Tunisia.
There is no doubt that a shift and confederacy buildup has happened, but for it to be the final culmination, Persia, its enemy must ally with Turkey despite the Shiite Sunni divide which will later unravel again on the Mountains of Israel. This healing is unlikely to happen until a false peace treaty is first established. It is then that the focus shifts by both Sunni and Shiite coalition towards the persecution of both the Church and Jerusalem which will exclude some Arab states: “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” (Revelation 12:3). In Ezekiel 38, both Persia as well as Meshech and Tubal (Asia Minor Turkey) are involved as well as Libya and Egypt (Ezekiel 30) in a “league”.
The beginning embryo and realization that such states can unite is already made firm, but for a seven year peace deal, there needs to be turmoil, which we are witnessing on a daily basis already. This military power will force the Houthis to accept a resolution within days or weeks. This will take Iran back to the drawing board as Russia will play the peace maker. And while Iran harbors its hate, eventually, both Sunni and Shiites will realize that the warring has no end and one sinister plan will be devised to unite the fractured Muslim world which sees the turmoil lasting seven years beginning in 2011 at the rise of the Arab Spring. Such unity cannot happen unless a scapegoat is found: Israel. As the days come, the Middle East is realizing, why is Sunni killing Shiite while Jerusalem remains “un-liberated”? This is the outcry currently on the streets of the Muslim world, and if the devil would make a statement it would be: “for not killing Jews, ISIS I hated”.
