Western nations should be aware that Russia’s leading political genius, Alexander Dugin, claims to be a prophet. In his “role” as the grand Russian prophet, he has called that NATO should be destroyed.
The Bible explains what is going on in the world today.
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Daniel 8:23).
Certainly, it is possible for a person have have prophetic gifts. But what power is Dugin utalising to see and proclaim his vision of the future?
Mr Dugin is in fact promoting a Dark Enlightenment, which means, to turn back to pre-Enlightenment, pre-Modern ideas (e.g. traditional religion).
Now, the “dark sentences” of Daniel 8:23 carries the idea of obscurity.
“I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old” (Psalm 78:2). “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.” (Proverbs 1:5, 6).
In all this we see it is not bad to understand dark things, because there are things of God which have been hidden or little known for many years.
We can become understanding people, people of knowledge, by being opened to the Bible and connecting to the Spirit of God.
