Rumors of War

11 11 2017


See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. Matthew 24:6-7

This week’s resignation of Lebanon’s Prime Minister (via video from Saudi Arabia) has signaled a dangerous escalation in the tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Until now, they have fought a proxy war in Yemen, but it now threatens expansion to direct war. They represent the two largest sects of Islam. The Saudi Monarchy controls Mecca and leads the Sunni branch of Islam which is about 85% of all Muslims. Even though Iran and the Shia are a much smaller percentage, Iran has a powerful and fanatical military, plus terrorist militias spread through the Middle East.

This poses a real danger to Israel and could even involve the US. We should be watchful and pray for Yehovah God’s purpose and peace.

People better start waking up and paying attention to what is happening in the Middle East, because the situation is becoming quite serious.  If things go badly, we could be facing a major regional war which would involve not only Saudi Arabia and Iran, but also potentially the United States and Israel.

Psalm 83 outlines the present threats to Israel and also gives us the answer in the form of a prayer in verse 9: Deal with them as with Midian. This short prayer is pregnant with revelation. It refers back to the time of Gideon’s victory with his 300 men over the Midianites.

When the three hundred blew the trumpets, Yehovah set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; Judges 7:22

This is exactly the pattern now sweeping the Middle East. Israel’s enemies are fighting each other since the Arab Spring. You can see it in internal civil wars like Syria, but also between nations. Most Bible students have not noticed that two different Greek words are used in Matthew 24 (quoted above). It is not repeating itself. First it refers to ethnic divisions and then to national divisions. We also see this pattern in conflicts in the whole world.

Yet, the counsel of Yeshua is clear. “The end is not yet.”

The Psalm 83 War must be settled first, followed by a time of peace before the Ezekiel Gog & Magog War. So, fasten your seat-belt, but know that God is in control and we are right on His schedule.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and pray for rain!
