12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto 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 come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Blog note: The beast has ‘no worries mate’ with the Kings of the East (China, India, Koreas, lesser Asian countries). They are firmly aligned with him politically, in spirit and financially/economically. Heck, they are all autocratic dictators/despots made in the same evil mold as MbS. Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un are currently leading the two strongest persecutions against Christians in the world today. Satan already rules these countries and kingdoms. His work is done in these countries. All that is left for him to do is bring them to the final battle to war against Christ on The Great Day of the Lord (Christ’s 2nd coming to earth) on the very last day of the Great Tribulation period (final 3 ½ years of the total 7 year Tribulation period). Based on the book of Revelation, waring against Christ seems to be the only role the ‘kings of the east’ play in the Tribulation and Great Tribulation.
Although the Bible is silent on what prompts or motivates the ‘kings of the east’ to want to come to the place known as Armageddon, my hypothesis is that they are lured into the region under the auspices of energy… either crude oil or natural gas. During the final 3 ½ years of the Great Tribulation, the earth is literally getting ‘celestially hammered’. Is it hard to assume that energy extraction, energy transport, energy refining are all decimated and destroyed to varying degrees? Kings of the East are DEPENDENT on Saudi Arabia for crude oil … will they become depending on Israel for Liquidated Natural Gas (LNG)? Time will tell. Functioning access to energy may be driving or motivating force. Is it not today? End of note.
