SURROGATES - Part III Linking Damascus With Libya, As Qaddaffi & Son Heard On Syrian Media
s mainstream media in America parrots the Northern line by discounting the presence of Moammar Qaddaffi, speaking to his people through a Syrian media network, the clueless continue to overlook the huge prophetic significance of such an event.
Moammar Qaddaffi, heretofore not identified in any significant way with the Syrian/Iranian/Hezbollah axis pressing in on the Little Horn state of Israel, is now recognized to have a relationship with the trio, an important development which connects the two streams of prophecy found in Daniel 11, and Ezekiel 38 and 39.
Ironically, because of the Surrogate identities involved (see parts I and II of the Surrogate series), this simply inserts the Iranian axis into the Libyan picture, which will bring about further alignments, which hardly anyone sees coming.
For the benefit of the null and void who, floating through this world like a ship without a rudder, have never read the Bible, this is huge. Ezekiel's passages detail the list of players in World War III, while Daniel's visionary input articulates a broader overview of the geo-political alignments which drive events at the end of the age.
In line with the present thread covering the secretive identities we would refer to as Surrogates, the presence of the Libyan in the Islamic power bloc is anticipated in the prophecies of Ezekiel. Under the leadership of the mysteriously named Gog, the prophet's two lengthy chapters describe a military campaign in the ancient land of Israel, a battle which occurs in the last days, and which provides Scriptural evidence that weapons of mass destruction are utilized:
"All of them clothed with all sorts of armour Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.Thou shall ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land against the mountains of Israel." (Ezekiel 38:5,2,9,8)
This alliance, labeled in the ancient text through very old place names, blurs the identities to the degree that our probe into Surrogates is germane. Persia, although commonly thought to be Iran, also historically encompassed Iraq now clearly under American control.
GEO (which is the political arm of the Christian Media ministry), has repeatedly moved in a contrarian path to the conventional identifications offered by the slop apologists of contemporary Christendom. For over 40 years, prophecy figures have widely identified Meschech and Tubal as antecedents of Moscow and Tobolsk but such are untenable links, based on historical and migratory records.
Cold War era Rapture Cultists (such as the false prophets Hal Lindsay and Chuck Missler) sculpted modern interpretive systems based on their best selling books and media presentations, and their inaccurate views have become tantamount to tradition. With anti-Soviet propaganda permeating their mutual prophetic perspectives, entire Christian congregations have been constructed around faulty interpretive systems.
Because the big Russian power then known as the Soviet Union, consistently characterized as the "evil empire" by our leadership at the time, seemed likely to hate our friend and ally Israel, the idea of Russia as Gog played well in Rapture oriented circles. All sorts of ridiculous ideas accompanied this nonsense, including the idea that Mikhail Gorbachev would be the Antichrist, simply because of an unfortunate birthmark on his head, which many said is the Mark of the Beast!
The problem is, the supposed connection between the ancient names Gog and Magog, and Russia is extremely tenuous, for the locales in question are not only imprecise, they lack the crucial Spiritual layer of identification. Admittedly, the Gog identity is clearly Northern, for the text says
"And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee.a mighty army." (Ezekiel 39:2)
However, in the end of days, the "North" is seen in Daniel's 11th chapter as a globalist geo-political North, where we would find the military command known as Northcom, an extension of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), with its leading power, North America.
Intriguingly, Gog the Northern power described in Ezekiel, is the one who assembles and arms the coalition of nations which will move on Israel:
"Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them" (Ezekiel 38:7)
Because the mystical requirement of that elusive quality known as "the Spirit of truth" (I John 4:6) is not in the Rapture Cult, they misidentify just about everyone and everything, and that includes Daniel's coalition described as "The King of the North."
Because that same passage mentions Libya (a geo-political Southern power, therein described as "The King of the South"), moving in cooperation with the Northern leader, even as Ezekiel has Libya in the Southern coalition invading Israel, clearly something is skewed. The answer is, the identities must be seen as Surrogates or an ongoing version of a false flag military campaign.
With Libya now penetrated by the mysterious Al Quaida, and the historically pro-Israel Hosni Mubarak of Egypt also deposed, the two Southern powers, both named in Daniel, are now secretive Surrogates of the King of the North an identity already seen in the invader from the North in Ezekiel known as "Gog."
The truth is right in front of us. The king of the North is led America, and so is Gog.
