In the days of those kings ... (specifically, Rome and it's derivative Iron-Clay feet and toes) the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever, ---------------- God brought Syria into Israel, and the "northerner" is called by Jehovah is a punishing agent - so I'm with you there. I would be on board with the idea that this is the 8th king if it weren't for that last line. Regardless, I completely agree that we're headed for a Satanic global system!
