This morning, Pastor Hagee gave a brief summary of the Egypt uprising.
In that summary he said, "The King of the South has mounted his horse".
Who is the King of the South?
One Day Closer Home
In Daniel 11:40, it talks of "the King of the South". Most bible scholars believe it refers to Egypt.
Here is a commentary by Jack Kelley on Daniel 11 and the Kings of the North and South. It's one of the prophectic passages which many consider to have already had a partial [forerunner] fulfillment, and yet is awaiting the complete [actual] fulfillment.
Thank you blueteapot for your kind response.
You are very welcome...
Blessings on your day!
According to Daniel,
The Greek Empire broke into 4 winds and out of the South came a King which had great dominion.
It is not simply Egypt. It could be the Roman Empire which controls Israel till now...USA/UK/UN/EU are still influencing as King of the South.
The King of the North is Muslim Empire (from Ottomon/Bzantine period till Gog/Magog) and I believe AntiChrist will control the North.
free doc Revived Roman Empire
Do you remember (Nebuchadnezzar's dream) the stature with 2 legs...& feet with 10 Toes
This shows Roman Empire (South) with Muslim Empire (North)
There is no east mentioned yet...kings of the East are Chinese/Japanese/Koreas/SoutheastAsian countries etc which had to fight with AntiChrist after Gog/Magog was destroyed...see what I mean?
Kings of east gathered out of the north(only after Daniel 11:verse44) ...for last WorldWar...War of the Worlds
Blueteapot...Pls note that Empires are people or civilisations...which grows in time. Expanding more and more till the 4 ends of the Earth.
The African, Indian, Australian etc are linked to EU companies economically, militarily and even religions influence as well.
All the commercial companies are German/British/American/Italian/Spainish/Portugese...
You can see that everywhere in this whole world that every infra structures is made of IRON and Clay!
Have you downloaded my files? Pls read them.
One last post on this tonight and then my part of the conversation will have to wait for another day....it's past my bedtime!
I've attempted to look at your excel file. Two things:
1) I see you have a map with the four divisions of the break-up of Alexander's kingdom, labelled north, south, east and west. What I don't understand is why did you labelled the west as east, the east as south, and the south as west? I do not understand your rationale for such labels.
2) I will try to look at it more as I have time, but I have to say...and please don't take this wrong...that I find that chart very hard to read and understand....I can tell you worked very hard on it and put a lot of thought into it...but there is so much stuff on one page, that the whole becomes overwhelming, and one doesn't know where to start.
Interesting discussion...but one I will have to pick up later...
Wasn't the seat of Roman power always in Rome(relative to Egypt)? Calling Rome a southern kingdom when the king is in the north or west doesn't make much sense, to me.
If you are right, mike, the terminology in the bible becomes much less useful. Should we not take the literal meaning first?
Hal Lindsey spoke of the King of the South in his weekly video this week.
Sorry that I could only reply now cos' I was ill since 7Feb.
The King of South need not mean His Capitol. King of the South Empire.
Pls read the documents which blueteapot saw too.
Then you will realise Daniel was looking into the 2 Empires of the same Roman Iron&Clay Empire which is still around till date.
Rome is the capitol city since Christ' times.
Rome is still the same capitol till now.
Daniel's South was the same Roman Empire which became the 4th Empire right?
Pls download and read my document.
mike, that is an interesting way to look at it; Daniel's perspective. I see the logic. Far be it from me to not consider someone else's "out of the box" thinking . The writer's own perspective is definitely a correct method of understanding.
If the progression of events is a bit slower than I am thinking now, I will probably do some more study on this.
Glad you are feeling better now, God's Blessings to you.
