The Nations are Preparing for War.

For those of us who follow Bible prophecy, this is rich stuff. It reinforces in a huge way the point that I love to think about and discuss: the Bible is validated due to “facts on the ground” in our world. In other words, what you see in the Bible is what you see in our world: hatred for Israel and the status of Jerusalem. What could account for this, but a Supernatural Being who predicted it long ago?

This is what God says in Obadiah 15-18:

“The day of the LORD is near for all nations. 
As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head. Just as you drank on my holy hill, so all the nations will drink continually; 
they will drink and drink and be as if they had never been. But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance. Jacob will be a fire and Joseph a flame; 
Esau will be stubble, and they will set him on fire and destroy him. 
There will be no survivors from Esau.” The LORD has spoken.

This is a specific prophecy for the last days, regarding the Arab people. Note also the warning given in Joel 3:2:

“I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, 
because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”

It doesn’t matter that liberal scholars, the Emergent crowd, and others constantly repeat the lie that the Bible isn’t true, is full of mistakes, outdated, etc. What matters is that God has pierced our world, and has directed history to a conclusion that we can clearly see from network news, online, and in newspapers: the world is getting its fill of the Jewish state, and intends to do something about it, even if that means imposing a hostile Arab state in its doorway; a whole host of hostile Arab states already sits on Israel’s doorstep. Soon they’ll be inside the house.

And what will be their fate? Interestingly, the Lord says He will do this to them. This isn’t something that He sits passively for, and waits for it to unfold. In fact, the Lord of History causes these things to happen, for a specific reason: to enter into judgment with the nations for how they have treated Israel.

Krauthammer is right about many things. He’s one of my favorite commentators. But on one point he is wrong on a colossal scale: Israel is not only going to retain the “West Bank”—the Jewish state is set to become the crown jewel of the entire world.

My friends, this is where the mystery of true religion melds with our gritty, day to day lives. Bible prophecy is now a cold, hard fact.

The nations are preparing for war. The Lord has told us how that will turn out.

  1. Its very interesting … have you ever gone to an Atheist… Forum… and talk about God…. They will cut you .. off.. slam dunk you off their web site so fast your head will spin… try it some time!

  2. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour

  3. And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

  4. this guy says:

    you do know that all the things in the bible were prophecised by other religions too right? and that the bible has had many revisions? maybe they integrated the prophecies of others. because even my religion prophecises a war, but it even names the countries that branched off. and this was long before chrisianity came to the US

  5. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult:
    and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people,
    and consulted against thy hidden ones.

    4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
    that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

    5 For they have consulted together with one consent:
    they are confederate against thee

  6. The nation of Israel is in the forefront of the news continually. Although we have many end time events happening all around us, Israel remains the focus of the coming New World order. To the mind of the elite that are clamoring to solidify their complete power, Israel stands in their way when it comes to the vast riches to be found in the Middle East. The unrest from an age old hatred between half brothers continues to simmer and is fast approaching the boiling point when the lid will be blown off the region and this area of the world will be thrown into a major war.

    In the book of Zechariah, the prophet gives a look into our future when nations think they can impose their will onto God’s land and His chosen people:

    12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

  7. It is exciting to watch this unfold.(Kind of scary too) I have heard others say that the unrest in the middle-east ( with the uprisings against government) will result not in the freedoms that they are seeking.But the instability will pave the way for the ” Muslim Brotherhood ” to take over and dictate their fanatical rule. Almost like Iran back in the 70’s. The Shaw was part of a single party system,and the people didn’t like that ( so,it wasn’t the Shaw,per se) When they revolted,the result was Khomeini ,and that was an end of our friendship, their friendship with Israel ,not to mention their freedom. Some believe the same for all the countries currently in protest. If that happens,there would be a more united front to come against Israel……the beginning of the end?….
    Beloved.

    When the whole 12 tribes are once again reunited, they will need every bit of that land!

    You are a Very Raraity in this Apostate World!

    I have news for the world: Israel has more land coming to it, not less; it is written.
