So I finally got around to reading the prophecy about the King of the North in Daniel 11 in full context
Church of God teaches that the King of the North is North of Jerusalem and therefore as Mother is "spiritual Jerusalem" the last days fulfillment would be north of Mother IE North Korea.
BUT even if Mother were "spiritual Jerusalem" the prophecy would not work as they explain it…
Daniel 11:2 clearly shows they are talking about the persian empire until its defeat by Greece.
11:3 is clearly talking about Alexander the Great until his down fall and its subsequent split into four parts. The applicable kingdoms being Ptolmaic Egypt to the south and Selucid Empire (Syria) to the North. So this prophecy is about the Kingdom north of Egypt not Jerusalem.
There is no country the Church of God uses as "spiritual egypt" they use Revelation 11:8 to claim that Spiritual Egypt is the sinful world so what would north of that be?
Any last days interpretation of Daniel 11 with their definitions for spiritual Egypt is pretty much impossible. And the claim North of Jerusalem is false (as Israel was part of both Kingdoms at one time or another neither position can be relative to Jerusalem.)
Furthermore the King of the South is supposed to attack first in Daniel 11:7 so even if somehow you could make it North of Jerusalem and Jerusalem=Mother South Korea would need to spark WWIII not North Korea using Daniel 11 as a prophecy in such a way.
