Biblical prophesy is playing out right in front of our eyes, I wonder how many people recognize that fact. In a few years their will be such a catastrophic war that will devour the Middle East, and change the economic landscape as we know it. Who are the players? Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya are the main muslim countries. Also, we have Russia and its allies, and Communist China and its allies. When all is said and done over half of the earth will be officially, or unofficially, warring against Israel and its allies.
Today we see Russia lining up to support Syria in its civil war. Egypt is having it own political problems also. The United States is a military ally of Israel. But will these countries hold true to their faiths and treaties. With Obama as president, and if Armageddon happened today, there is doubt that we will support Israel in its fight against the muslims. A few years down the line, and it could be a different story. Egypt, Jordan, and possibly Saudi Arabia may be the only muslim nations that will not rise up against Israel. They may refrain, become neutral countries, or they may send supplies to the other Arab nations, but no fighting men, officially.
We need to be watching this very carefully,because this will not only affect our individual future, but our individual eternal future. It is interesting that in most military planning, if you out number your enemies you essentially win everything. But not this time. Israel will rise up and beat their enemies, at great costs to them, but they will defeat their enemies with the help of thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Angels and Saints of God. They did it in the Six Day War of 1967. Egyptian soldiers of that war spoke of Angels that protected Israel.
There will be, unfortunately, two great wars in the future. The one mentioned above. And that one comes before Armageddon. This war brings about a leader that will rule for 7 years from Jerusalem. He would have control of most, if not all of the world. Granted there will be peace for about three or three and a half years, but that is it. he economic landscape will change. At that time there will be no paper money, just a chip implanted into your hand or forehead for the purpose of buying, selling, retrieving personal information, or tracking your whereabouts. But then all of Hell will rise to attempt to destroy any reference to God, Jesus, or Salvation. This next to the last great war will be between God and earth. This next to the last great war will cause the Earth to be finally released from the from Satan's grasps. But only for a thousand years. Jesus will rule from the New Jerusalem that will appear above the earth. After the thousand years, Satan will try to take back what he claims is his, and this is the war that will destroy Earth completely.
But take heart, there are survivors. They are the Saints of old. They are those who held on to their faith in God, they are those who lived as close to a righteous life as they possibly can. They will be the only inhabitants of the New Earth. In fact, these are the same people who will rule the Old Earth during the last one thousand year of life before its destruction. These people are the ones who were martyred for their faith, or died of natural causes. But their faith keeps them alive forever.
If you want to be a part of this exciting part of history, all you have to do is give your heart to the Lord and Savior, the one who created and saved, destroyed and renewed, life. Study to see that these things will happen, and then make that decision that will give you eternal life.
