Vladimir Putin supports formation of a Eurasian Union

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin recently told Izvestiya (a Russian newspaper) about his support for creating a new Eurasian Union.

If Putin gets his way, this new union will lead to the formation of a new supranational union that will remove travel, customs and economic barriers

According to Putin,

“We offer a model of a powerful supranational union, which would become a key player in the modern world and play a role of an effective link between Europe and the dynamic Asian and Pacific region,”

To many people who follow Bible prophecy, this news is one more sign that we are rapidly approaching the rise of the Antichrist. In Daniel chapters 2 & 7, the Bible appears to say a union, or grouping, of kings/nations will form at the end of time. The Antichrist will gain standing within this group and eventually assume full control of it’s resources. In Daniel chapter 2, this grouping is referred to as the fourth great empire that will inhabit the Earth when Daniel interprets Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

While this new Eurasian Union might not lead to the fourth great empire, there can be no doubt about which direction the wind is blowing. The creation of new unions (usually in the name of economic growth) seems to be the “in” thing to do (it was only 1993 when the European Union was officially created) which means it is highly likely we’ll be hearing more news about countries coming together in the near future.

    I believe in Armeggdon coming at some point, but don’t you think it is a little like reading into horoscopes. The same thing could have been said about the states forming a “union” or the way the US has a bunch of “Unions” or even when the 1993 EU was created starting a count down. Is it better to assume you will be living your whole life serving the Lord King or is it better to assume he is coming tomorrow and always be planning for destruction? It says in the Bible to wait with an oil lamp, but if we keep looking for “signs of the end” you are going to find them. But you would find them in every generation. Wouldn’t the Axis and Allies powers of WWII be a perfect end times sign, but here we are years later still waiting. I would prefer to live thinking that I have my whole life ahead of me and plan to serve that way then to think the world is ending soon and be miserable and on edge all the time.

    Hi Christopher. I definitely agree with some of your points, but I think man has been made to explore and understand all of creation. Some of us are very interested in watching God’s words unfold because it’s interesting to witness; prophecy is a way God builds trust with us. It was by learning a little bit about Bible prophecy that I was able to let go and become a Christian. I recognize that prophecy isn’t as important to all Christians and I completely respect that.

    And just like any subject, people can make incorrect interpretations. That doesn’t mean we should stop asking questions or trying to understand our world. The Bible seems to be saying an evil union is going to emerge in the end times. And while I doubt we’ll be able to identify the union as “the evil union” when it first starts out, it’s reassuring to see the world in a “union forming mode” at time when so many other prophetic events are lining up. The fact that Israel reformed as a nation after such a long dispora, in my mind, starts the countdown.

    Personally, I expect to the end to occur in my lifetime and I’m not miserable at all; “amazed”, “excited” and a “little fearful” are better ways to describe my feelings.

    Thanks for commenting and welcome to the site!
