UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The coronavirus epidemic that rages in China and barely touches Russia shifts the balance of power between these countries, which means that biblical prophecies that Vladimir Putin will become “king of the East” began to come true, writes The Trumpet, an American publication.
Back in 2017, its chief editor, founder of the Philadelphia Church of God, Gerald Flurry, wrote the book “The Predictable Phenomenon of the“ Prince of Russia ”, in which, in his peculiar interpretation of some biblical stanzas, he calls Vladimir Putin the ruler of the future Asian superpower. “And the word of the Lord came to me: the son of man! turn your face to Gog in the land of Magog, Prince Roche, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him ”(Ezekiel 38: 1-2) – he quotes and explains: Gog is Russia, Magog is China, Prince Roche is Putin, Meshech – Moscow, and Fluval – Tobolsk, which will become the capital of supranational education. Even then, Flurry warned: “In verse 8 of chapter 38 of the book of Ezekiel, it speaks of” the last years “- that is what we are living now.”
The outbreak of coronavirus and its strike on the Chinese economy accelerated events, writes The Trumpet. The growth of China’s GDP, and so declining in 2019 to a minimum over the past 30 years, this year will fall to 5.4% according to the most optimistic forecasts – if the epidemic is suppressed by March. “True despair and suffering reigns here,” the publication paints.
It also recalls, referring to The Financial Times, that in ancient China, epidemics often preceded radical political changes. “In the early history of China, outbreaks of disease, invasion of enemies and internal uprisings against the emperor were considered” ominous omens “: the leader was losing” heavenly predestination “, and it was believed that the end of his dynasty was near,” the article says.
Given the upcoming constitutional amendments in Russia and its growing power amid the weakening of China, everything is going to ensure that Vladimir Putin will head the new Asian superpower, the publication concludes.
