US President Barack Obama made nuclear comments that have offended those in India:

April 5, 2016

Much is made of Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s personal rapport with US President Barack Obama. …

But despite the growing warmth in ties between India and the US, reinforced now by Modi’s personal equation with President Obama, Washington continues to bracket India and Pakistan together when referring to risks of nuclear confrontation in the sub-continent.

Former US president Bill Clinton, had once famously called South Asia the most dangerous place on earth as chances of a nuclear flashpoint between India and Pakistan were very real. India does not like to be bracketed with Pakistan on nuclear issues, as it is well known that A Q Khan, the father of Pakistan’s nuclear program was a known proliferator. He passed on nuclear technology to North Korea and Libya. New Delhi’s record in non-proliferation is exemplary.

MEA spokesman Vikas Swarup reacted sharply on Monday to President Obama’s advise to India and Pakistan at the end of the recent Nuclear Security Summit. Obama wanted to “see progress in Pakistan and India, that subcontinent, making sure that as they develop military doctrines, that they are not continually moving in the wrong direction.”

“Yes, we have seen those remarks, Swarup said. “There seems to be a lack of understanding of India’s defence posture. Conventionally, India has never initiated military action against any neighbour. We also have a no-first use nuclear weapons policy,” he added.

New Delhi, which has been on the receiving end of terror strikes from Pakistan, including the latest at the Pathankot air base in January, is angry and hurt that the Americans often misunderstand India’s concerns. In fact in the past, the US and its allies had turned a deaf ear to India’s claims that Pakistan’s state agencies nurtured, armed and funded terror groups to bleed India. It is only in recent years, when the Afghan Taliban targeted NATO and American troops in Afghanistan, that Washington got the measure of Pakistan’s military’s tactics.

Those in India basically see Pakistan as a threat and a contributor to instability around the world. Barack Obama has generally tried to ingratiate himself with India.  He has met with its Prime Minister Modi (see India’s Modi hugs Obama and gets nuclear investment deal) and even carries a pagan Indian monkey deity and other pagan charms (see Barack Obama carries ‘charms’ and speaks of Islam), which he once displayed to a crowd of primarily Indians (see Barack Obama Carries Hindu Monkey God).

The USA would like to be an ally of both Pakistan and India, but both of those countries have issues with the USA. About two weeks ago, Pakistan told the USA that it would not stop its development of tactical nuclear weapons (see Pakistan tells USA it will continue its nuclear missile development).

Partially because India believes that the USA is too close to Pakistan, India has increased its ties with Russia.  India has also kept ties with Iran. The comments from US President Obama are sending another signal to the Indians that the USA is not really its friend.

So how will this turn out?

Well, India has expressed interest in Russia’s Eurasian Union (seeEurasian Economic Union: India wants in). And that was BEFORE this latest offense–which will tend to increase the distance between the USA and India.

The time will come when a confederation of Russia, India, China, and others in Asia will form. Notice the following:

13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed–by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths (Revelation 9:13-18).

Only China, and possibly India and others in Asia (many of which will align themselves with China and Russia against the European Empire), are capable of fielding a two hundred million man army. Thus, Revelation appears to be discussing an Indian role in the end-time prophecies.

Also notice the following:

12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” 16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16).

Here we see that the kings from the East (hence more than one country) are those that need to cross the Euphrates. This combined with Revelation 9, which shows that two hundred million man army be assisted by angels at the Euphrates is strong biblical evidence that Asia is at least part of this massive army.

China is clearly a nation that biblical is one of the “kings from the east.” RussiaIndia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and others are also probably “kings from the East” (Revelation 16:12) as they all are in the farthest eastern reaches of Asia.

So what might this have to do with something like the Eurasian Union?

Well, the Eurasian Union is led by Russia.  And the Bible shows that Russia (the land from the north) will lead a confederation of nations in the end time:

50:41 “Behold, a people shall come from the north,
And a great nation and many kings
Shall be raised up from the ends of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance;
They are cruel and shall not show mercy.
Their voice shall roar like the sea;
They shall ride on horses,
Set in array, like a man for the battle,
Against you, O daughter of Babylon.

43 “The king of Babylon has heard the report about them,
And his hands grow feeble;
Anguish has taken hold of him,
Pangs as of a woman in childbirth…”(Jeremiah 50:41-43).

India, in my view, is one of the ‘many kings’ that will align militarily with Russia and be involved in Armageddon (Revelation 9:13-18).

While Barack Obama’s comments that offended India are not the only factor that will lead to India aligning with Russia and others, it appears they were another nudge in that direction. A direction towards a confederation that will come to pass.
