Where is any of this in the American media? While we have wall to wall banal coverage of our bread and circuses from our useless so called leaders here this impending march to possibly World War 3 continues on unabated.
There’s a number of things I’ve already discussed on this blog that are potential global game changers but this coming Middle East blow up could very well be the most imminent and upfront that we are going to see.
There’s any number of ways this could go all down and we simply can’t know what that is going to look like yet but at the very least we are due for more stage settings for the eventual Isaiah 17 prophecies in regards to Syria and Damscus, Isaiah 19 prophecies in regards to Egypt, and I’m personally convinced Pslam 83 is not simply an imprecatory prayer along with a growing number of Bible scholars way above me out there that pay attention to prophecy. That’s the big one although we may very well see an Iran-Israel clash prior to these things that lights the fuse.
Why should you care? Because everyone on the planet will be impacted on at least an economic level when some of this hits. How do you think $7 and up a gallon gas is going to work for starters? Imagine if Iran decides during the course of things to attempt to blog the Strait of Hormuz and what that will mean. There’s simply too many unknown wildcard variables that come into play when…not if…a major Middle Eastern war breaks out. It’s not going to be the wham bam thank you ma’am that the Gulf War was.
The other meaningful impact these events can have and already should for Christians is as follows: The church needs to wake up to literal Bible prophecy being on the threshold and all of these things are easy concrete examples we can use to share the Gospel with people. When you can flip on the news and show people clear stage setting that matches with the Scripture it’s hard to against it.
An easy example of this is the Ezekiel 38 war that takes place after the events that I’ve just mentioned. Iran, Russia, and Syria are the three main leads in that event and we can turn the news on right now and see how close and chummy they are right now. We are seeing the ascendancy of the Russians as a major global player in international politics and out in the Middle East and I daresay they have no plans of going away from that. The Bible identifies them as Gog and Magog and it’s clear they are in for the long haul to the bitter end. It will be a bitter end for the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 participants beyond any doubt.
As usual my thrust here is: There isn’t a lot of time left to tarry on which side you are going to be on: God’s side or Satan’s. Jesus Christ came to this world to die for all of our sins and in our place. He took the death we all deserved. Do you know Him? I don’t mean running through some religious hopes, either. I mean, do you know Him? Take a look through the book of John. Just read it. You have nothing to lose except a little time and potentially everything to gain. Ask God to show you the truth.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
