"The Rise of the Persian "Ram" - IRAN
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
Many Christians are of the mind-set that the events of the Old and New Testaments all happened back in the "Biblical days" of human history …and they fail to grasp the awesome truth that we are still living in Biblical days. They never ended! What will yet happen on the face of this Earth in the years to come has already been prophesied and written in the Bible. There remain prophecies and things written in the Bible in both the New and Old Testaments that are yet to come to pass. Although the prophets and disciples have long since passed from our world, what they wrote lives on just as relevant today as it was in the day it was written. If you really trust the Bible, it can and will tell you …where we are today …and what is about to come to pass in the very near future. We have shifted gears from, “In the beginning” …to the “Beginning of the end.”
Friends, Satan is doing his very best to suppress the truth because he knows the Bible …he knows Bible prophecy …and is fully aware that the truth is the most powerful weapon to use against him and his deceptions …which is why he is doing all he can to keep people entertained so that they cannot see what is right in front of them!
Writing about Israel at any given time is very difficult because that nation is in a constant state of change... Things are moving at a face pace! Anyone who has visited Israel will testify to the almost electrifying atmosphere in this unique place! World opinion is created by media bias which is very anti-Israel these days. We sincerely believe that March 2015 could be a very prophetic month with Prime Minster Bibi Netanyahu’s invitation to speak on the 03rd before the US Congress and Senate. He will be speaking of the dangers of Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb. US President Obama has already begun his backlash and is even trying to sabotage the Israeli elections on the 17th so as to oust Bibi Netanyahu. On the 05th – 06th it is the Purim and with Iran (Persia) on the forefront we can certainly pay heed to the book of Esther! It is not co-incidence that Iran is back in the news just as prophesised and is now threatening to destroy Israel and the Jewish people. On the 20th the last Total Solar Eclipse for the century according to NASA precedes the 3rd (of 4) Blood Moons tetrad on the 04th April, 2015.
Tensions are rapidly rising… Israeli intelligence indicates that Iran and Hezbollah have been planning a series of major attacks against civilians along Israel’s northern border with Syria and Lebanon. This followed Israel’s pre-emptive action on the 18th January that killed an Iranian general and six Hezbollah terrorists in an air strike in the Golan Heights while they were looking at setting up rocket launchers with intention to strike Israel. Iran and Hezbollah are vowing to revenge and Israel has since ordered tight border control with iron dome anti-missile defence systems. If that weren’t troubling enough, Russia and Iran have just signed a dramatic military agreement that bodes ill for Israel. The Israeli-Lebanese border build-up may be moving from high tension to a violent eruption as threatening events escalate. A mysterious explosion was one of the events occurring Sunday Jan. 25, along with rapid Israeli and Hezbollah military movements.
Troop build-ups on both sides of the border, bulwarks trucked in to protect Israeli locations, an Israel warning to Hezbollah not to harm Israel’s overseas institutions …and persistent rumours of secret Hezbollah tunnels. Israel and Iran’s Lebanese surrogate the Shiite Hezbollah are both evidently moving up to the brink in their efforts to sound out their opponents’ intentions following vows of revenge for the air strike which killed a dozen Hezbollah and Iranian officers on the Golan. The 900-meter tall Ramim Ridge was the focus of military movements. The IDF sits on the eastern slope of this ridge, commanding the path of entry into Lebanon; while Hezbollah holds most of the western slope, which overlooks the Kadesh Valley (site of an epic Biblical battle) in the Upper Galilee and its border roads and villages. Hezbollah has fortified houses in South Lebanese villages within range, especially A-Taibeh, where it has established command positions. Also Hezbollah for the first time detached fighting units from battles in support of the Syrian army and sent them to the Israeli border as reinforcements. All in all, both sides are piling up strength in an ever higher build-up. As increasing numbers of heavily armed troops glare at each other across the Lebanese-Israeli frontier, an incendiary standoff is evolving that can’t be sustained much longer without being withdrawn, or tipping over into some sort of future clash!
Are we heading towards another war between Israel and Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed terror movement in Lebanon…?
The Scriptures indicate that eventually every nation will abandon and turn-against Israel. BUT, we’re not quite there yet, and are now witnessing the strained relations coming from Israel’s closest ally America …through the Obama Administration. It would be a sad day if the US turns against Israel and the Jewish people …not only for Israel …but especially for America as God has blessed them because of the Jewish people! That said, there has never been an American President (worse than Carter) as consistently antagonistic towards their most faithful ally Israel …and as sympathetic to the enemies of Israel, like Iran …as we see today! It won’t be a surprise if in the very near future if it is announced that Obama will be visiting Iran!
US President Obama told Israel there will be a price to be paid because Prime Minister Netanyahu accepted an invitation - 03rd March by the US Congress to speak on "the dangers of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon." Under the US Constitution, the US Congress can invite whomever they want to speak to their chamber. The US House has invited the US Senate into the House chambers, and it will be a joint session. This platform is huge for Netanyahu, and Obama knows it. We believe the price to be paid …is a total abandonment of US support of Israel in the UNSC! Therefore, when the Palestinians re-introduce the resolution forcing Israel to withdraw within a timeline, it may pass with a US abstention. This man is evil to the core! The most significant news over the past few weeks is the admission from the Obama Administration that they will punish Israel. This threat will probably be met in the months to come, and we believe it will be in the form of a Palestinian resolution forcing a time frame on Israeli withdrawal from the Temple Mount and Judea and Samaria the so-called West Bank. If this happens, the religious Jews will be very upset, and events could move very fast.
President Obama is leading the world toward violence and instability… He cannot even say "Islamic terror" even while he was standing next to British Prime Minister Cameron and most recently when he met with King Abdullah from Jordan after the horrific burning alive of the Jordanian pilot. King Abdullah openly condemned ISIS as Islamic fundamental terrorist but Obama just could not! Obama’s spiritual leanings toward the Islamic religion are very evident. The European terror raids are not supported by the Whitehouse …and British Prime Minister Cameron was visibly frustrated at President Obama. As Israel goes to the election, in March, this could bode very ill for Israel. Obama’s Muslim leanings will force Israel into some very difficult decisions after the March 17th election!
The spiritual battle here in Israel is increasing by the day… you can feel it around you …and you can feel it in you. Europe is battling an enemy of "radical Islam" that is ready to destroy its culture. In time, Europe will have to give its power over to the Antichrist in order to save itself. Will terror be that reason? God knows what will transpire, and we must trust in Him, and know that these things must take place.
Ponder on this; When a World Leader stands before his nation and says; "no challenge… no challenge… no challenge poses a greater threat to the world than "climate change!" Here US President Obama openly chose to ignore the rising existing and dangerous threat of Radical Islam and does NOT take decisive action to neutralize the treat of Iran’s nuclear program … nor does he take decisive action to crush terrorist movements like al Qaeda and ISIS who are beheading and murdering Christians and Muslims throughout the Middle East, and simply refuses to even mention the words; "Islam" or "Radical Islam" or "al Qaeda" in his State of Union address in January to his nation. In his refusal to openly condemn "radical, fundamental Islam" as a serious threat, he has put the US, Israel, the West and especially the Middle East in a very dangerous situation.
Iran has expanded its influence to Yemen, Syria, Turkey, Russia, and Iraq with Obama's blessings…!
This new Persian Caliphate is waiting for their grand prize … Israel! With Saudi Arabia going through a transition, the Americans turning their backs on Israel, we have a very dangerous situation developing in the Middle East. Right now, we also need to watch the situation in Syria. There may be an overreach by Israel or another entity and Damascus could be destroyed as it was prophesied thousands of years ago (Isaiah 17). That could trigger a broader Middle East war where Russia, Iran, and Turkey invade Israel (Ezekiel 38/39). We know the "dry bones prophecy" is being fulfilled now (Ezekiel 37). One day all Israel will be saved (Romans 11).
The death of the Saudi King …is the End Time Event Islamists have been waiting for! A Lebanese reporter for the Al-Monitor Middle East news service explains that Iran and Hezbollah view the Syrian civil war not only in a strategic context, but in a prophetic one. In their belief, the radical Sunnis will conquer Syria for a short period of time and then Iranian forces will intervene on their way to destroying Israel. The unnamed reporter points out that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is like Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, "known for being a strong believer" in the Shiite prophecy that Iran will lead an "End Times" war against Islam’s enemies. At that time, their Mahdi will "reappear" and defeat the infidel (that’s us)! According to the author, Iran and Hezbollah rely upon a book of prophecies called Al-Jafr to guide them. It was passed down to Jafar al-Sadiq, for whom the Jafari school of Shiite jurisprudence is named after. In this book it is said that the Syrian leader will be killed in a civil war during the End Times. A Sunni leader will take over Syria to persecute Shiites, Allawites and Christians. The persecution will continue until an Iranian army invades Syria via Iraq, killing this Sunni leader on the way to capturing Jerusalem. Once Jerusalem is taken, their Mahdi will appear. Interestingly… in a modern context, this means that Hezbollah is fighting to preserve the regime of a man (Bashar Assad) that they believe will be killed. Keep in mind, the Jafari School of jurisprudence is mainstream Shiite doctrine. In July 2010, a senior Iranian cleric said that Khamenei told his inner circle that he had met with the Mahdi, who promised to "reappear" during his lifetime.
A very similar Islamic "End-times" viewpoint is clearly conveyed in a 2011 documentary produced by the office of then Iranian President Ahmadinejad. The film, titled "The Coming is Upon Us" does not predict a Syrian civil war but shares many of the same details expressed by the Al-Monitor reporter in Lebanon. A critical point of convergence between the two sources is about Saudi Arabia’s role in Islamic prophecy. Both agree that the death of Saudi King Abdullah will be a major trigger. In fact, this event is so central to the Iranian film that it opens up with the statement… "Whoever guarantees the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, I will guarantee the imminent reappearance of Mahdi." An interesting fact about this film is the high level of detail of the discussed Islamic future events.
It is easy to see why Muslims (especially a Shiite) believe that their 12th Imam or Mahdi’s return is near! They believe an "Allah-blessed revolution" will take place in Iran led by a man based out of Qom. The narrators point to the 1979 Islamic Revolution as a clear fulfilment. After, this happens a series of vague and specific "signs are to follow." The most specific "signs" are related to Iraq. The Iranian video claimed that fulfilment of their end-times event requires the invasion of Iraq by infidels (non- Muslims) from the south with heavy use of aircraft, as happened in 2003. The so-called "infidel" will cause tribal divisions and the evil dictator of Iraq (Saddam Hussein), will be killed.
Iran and Hezbollah are first focused on assembling an anti-Western Arab coalition. "The Coming is Upon Us" film specifically cites the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood as a step towards this, even if Iran and the Brotherhood are on opposite sides in Syria. The development that Iran was eagerly awaiting is the death of the Saudi King Abdullah, which will trigger internal strife throughout Saudi Arabia. It is probable that this is when Iran hopes to begin a rebellion in the Shiite-majority Eastern Province where 90% of the country’s oil is. Islamist Muslims believe that after President Assad of Syria is killed and replaced by a vicious Sunni leader …Iranian forces are to invade Syria from Iraq. The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the Iraqi government’s slide into the Iranian orbit are undoubtedly seen as dramatic "signs." Any policy debate that takes place among Muslims is not about whether to pursue the war that summons their Mahdi, but how!
Although 1948, the year when Israel became a State, is the natural benchmark for the start of the latter times of Biblical days …another benchmark emerged in 1979 when the Iranian Revolution catapulted the land of Ancient Persia back onto the global political stage. The Iranian Revolution inspired an aggressive rise of Islamic fundamentalist sentiment against the west …an angry wind that began to blow with increasing velocity across the Middle East and the larger Islamic world. When the Islamic world saw that Iran could blatantly snub its nose at the powerful United States of America and the West, and get away with it, others quickly followed!
The subsequent Iran/Iraq war, the rise of Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden… As well as the attack on Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, the Gulf Wars and the wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan …and the rise of the extreme evil (Islamic radical ideology) in the name of ISIS/L and Boko Haram …and other terrorist organizations all directly or indirectly precipitated from this 1979 Islamic Revolution event. The Arab Spring uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East and the increase in sectarian strife between Sunni and Shiite Islamic factions across the Muslim world are all part of this equation. And, Iran is an active political driving force in this phenomenon!
Iran is Biblical Persia …and, in retrospect, we can now see that the emergence of Iran as a world power, and a modern-day growing global threat, is prophesized in the book of Daniel. The prophetic seal is unsealing right before our very eyes! The Church Age is rapidly drawing to a close. The Old Persian Empire encompassed the areas of present-day Iraq, Iran, Syria, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Pakistan and also occupied-present day Turkey, Palestine, northern Egypt and Libya around 500 B.C. The Persian Empire figured most prominently in the captivity of Israel in Biblical history and, Persia also figures prominently in future prophecy and the beginning of the “latter days” (Daniel 10:14).
It is NO coincidence that the Middle East is a powder keg, awaiting only the proper spark to explode! It is NO coincidence that radical Islam has become the global terror threat … it is NO coincidence that Iran is threatening to wipe the nation of Israel off the map …and it is NO coincidence that Israel exists as a nation, once again back in most of the very same Biblical lands that God promised Abraham thousands of years ago. None of this is coincidence! It is the fulfilling and unfolding of God's Words and setting of the stage for the fulfilment of the coming events written about in the book of Revelation. During the days of the Old Persian Empire when Israel was in captivity, the prophet, Daniel received many visions concerning his people and Jerusalem, and what would happen to Israel in the times before “The End.” God told Daniel that those things would be sealed until this “time of the end.” (Daniel 12:4, 9)
Daniel was in what today is south-western Iran when he had a vision (Daniel 8:2) and didn’t have the foggiest notion of the vision’s meaning even after the angel Gabriel has interpreted the vision for him. This is in spite of the fact that he had a reputation for being able to understand and interpret all kinds of visions and dreams (Daniel 1:17; 5:11-12). Daniel had already demonstrated his God-given skill in interpreting the two visions of Nebuchadnezzar …yet, the vision he receives in chapter 8 leaves him exhausted and physically ill and He simply cannot grasp its meaning!
Verse 1: tells us when Daniel received the vision and explains the relationship of the second vision to the first, recorded in chapter 7.
Verse 2: is more geographical, telling us not where Daniel was when he received the vision, but where he was in the vision.
“Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spoke, how long will the vision be concerning the daily (sacrifice) and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot? And he said to me, for two thousand and three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed,” Daniel 8:13, 14. Now Daniel hears two heavenly beings talking about these cruel powers who were going to trample on God’s truth and His people and they ask “How long is this going to go on? How long will evil trample on the good?” The question is of duration of the vision and the word translated ‘vision’ here is ‘Chazown’ (Khaw-zone). This word means the entire vision. Then the answer comes …“For two thousand and three hundred days, then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” Remember when Yeshua (Jesus) was on earth, how He went into the temple and drove out the wicked ones who were disobeying God? Well this verse tells of a time that God had set from way back, and when that time would come, He would begin a special work that would lead to the end of all cruel and wicked powers.
“And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision,” Daniel 8:15-17. Daniel wanted to understand what all the things he was seeing in the vision meant, and so he asked and in verse 16 we see the angel Gabriel was asked to explain it. Now in this verse there is a different Hebrew word that is translated ‘vision’… It is ‘mar’eh’, and it means a small part of the vision rather than ‘chazown’ which means the entire vision; sort of like a snapshot compared to a whole movie. Yeshua (Jesus) was the one who asked the angel Gabriel to explain to Daniel what part of the vision meant. Notice how Daniel was affected by the presence of these holy beings. Daniel is one of the few people in the Bible that there is no record made of his ever being unfaithful to the Lord …and yet even he falls helpless to the ground when Yeshua (Jesus) speaks and the angel comes near. What do you think will happen to the wicked when Yeshua returns in all His glory and all His angels?
Now Daniel knew that God had told the Prophet Jeremiah that the Jewish people would be kept in Babylon as slaves for 70 years, and then they would be allowed to return to Jerusalem. Daniel knew that soon those years would end and had been praying about it. Gabriel then told Daniel that the whole vision, the ‘chazown’ would be at the time of the end of the world.
Daniel’s vision transported him both in time and space as he found himself in Susa, about 150 miles north of the head of the Persian Gulf. Susa, the ancient Capital of Elam, was destined in a few years to become a leading city in the Persian Empire and the location of the king’s palace (Nehemiah 1:1; Esther 1:2, 5; 2:3, 5). The canal (or river) mentioned by Daniel may have been the very one down which Alexander the Great would later sail his fleet? How dramatically “things to come” are communicated to the prophet Daniel. He is actually transported to the future capital of the Persian Empire. There, in Susa, beside the Ulai Canal, he learns that the two kingdoms which will follow the Babylonian Empire will be Medo-Persia and Greece (Daniel 8: 20-21). It will be some twelve years until the death of Belshazzar and the end of the Babylonian domination of the world …but Daniel’s vision takes him to the very capital of Persia where Nehemiah and Esther will later dwell.
Persia (Iran) is the context and focus of this vision… “Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last. I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great. And as I was considering, behold a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with rage against him, and smote the ram, and broke his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand,” Daniel 8:3-7.
The Bible goes on to define the identities of this “ram” and the “he goat” spoken of in this prophecy in Daniel 8:19-21. First of all, the Lord God reiterates that this is an END TIMES prophecy; a yet future event. Then the Lord God identifies the two horns of the ram as the kings of “Media and Persia” which would roughly indicate the land area from eastern Turkey and Iraq into Iran and eastward into Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is no coincidence that the conflicts in these lands are the current focal points of the daily news! Syria is currently siding with the Iranians and their Hezbollah counterparts against Israel.
Turkey, which used to be an ally of Israel, is now seen as sliding towards Iran. Following the pull-out of U.S. forces, Iraq is unstable and is dominated by a Shiite government that is increasingly being drawn into the Iranian sphere of influence. There is a building fault-line between Shiites and Sunnis in the region, most notably precipitated by the conflict in Syria. Expect to see the unexpected in this region in the coming months!
The king of "Grecia" is a reference to the peoples immediately west and north of present day Turkey… specifically, the regions around Greece, Macedonia and up into the Crimea and present day Ukraine and the Balkan states. What would happen to Greece should the crisis there deepen and the Greeks leave the Euro Zone after the recent elections? Besides defaulting on their debt, and throwing Europe into an economic tailspin, such a possibility would precipitate a political rift between the Greek peoples and Europe …and a shift into the Russian sphere of influence. There is a common strong religious bond between the Greeks and the Russians because these regions are bastions of the Greek Orthodox faith. And, there is a strong enmity between the Greeks (Christian Orthodox) and the Turks (Muslims) going back to the conquest of Constantinople (Istanbul) and the rise of the Ottoman Empire. There exists the strong possibility of a new political power block rising across this region and peoples, which would become aligned against the West and Europe for economic reasons …and against the Muslim peoples of Turkey and the rising Islamic forces to the east for religious and political reasons. Certainly the winds of politics are blowing is this direction. The recent Russian aggression in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine is just another unfolding episode in this story.
We are certainly living in the days before this prophecy will be fulfilled …and we are also living in the times when the prophecy is actually unsealing right before our eyes so that we can understand what is happening in this world and where all this is leading. The Ram (Iran) in Daniel 8:3-7 is rising, it is becoming "great" but the larger of its two horns is yet to rise… Specifically, the lands of Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan are yet to fully join forces with the Iranians. It should also be pointed out that these nations, although they are all predominantly Islamic nations, are not all Arab nations.
These are different peoples than the descendants of the Ishmaelite who inhabit the predominately Sunni Arab nations to the south that are on the western shores of the Persian Gulf (Arab Gulf) and in Northern Africa. There is a religious/political cultural line that runs between the Greeks and the Turks …the peoples of the west facing the people of the east …the predominately Orthodox Greeks against the Turks and the Islamic Muslim people. It is NO coincidence that the beginning of John's visions in the Book of Revelation focuses on the western shores of Turkey. That is the Biblical land of Asia Minor where the seven churches of Revelation are located… All of the seven churches of Revelation chapters 1-3 are situated along the western edge of Turkey. And the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey is a geopolitical dividing line between the so-called lands of Christianity to the West and the lands of Islam to the East. The Apostle John was on an island named Patmos (currently a Greek controlled island), situated in the Aegean Sea just west of the Asia Minor mainland, today just off the coast of Turkey, when he saw his vision. Daniel's visions are a complement to the visions of John. And, the Middle East region is the future literal focus of the events in the Book of Revelation.
The “Little Horn” of Daniel 8:8-14… First we need to remember the ram has 2 horns… One for the early time, and one for last. Or later. And, the goat comes from the West, across the face of the whole earth, and he does this without touching the ground! (a) For early times: the enemy was the Empire of Greece, but in the end times …who is also included in this Empire? Alexander the Great, (the original horn) who fulfilled the prophecy first, it was NOT possible for him to travel without touching the ground …and he only came from Greece, NOT from across the face of the whole earth. He marched on the ground until he arrived at his destination. It was his empire that was divided into 4 horns. (b) For end times: the farthest point from Iran on the surface of the earth is the United States but then, it does not say the goat travelled from the farthest point on the earth away from Persia. Now, how does one travel …and have a war without touching the ground? We would guess with guided missiles or fighter aircraft. The goat defeats the ram, and breaks both horns with its one horn, and great power. So, the ram (Persia – Iran) is defeated twice. Once in ancient history (first horn), and once in the end times (last horn). It would seem like it would be either a nation from the original Greek territory, or a newer nation that can trace back to Greek origins.
The final “Little horn” of Daniel 8:7 …is described as committing the abomination of desolation in ancient times, and seems to re-emerge as a fierce leader of the latter day kingdom (v. 23), to repeat the indignation (v.19) at the “appointed time of the end.” Obviously, it is not the same person, but it is the same kingdom, and personality type of the leader as “goat” to defeat the Persian ram…?
Whoever the “goat” is …he will also act to “destroy the mighty, and also the holy people” (V. 24). He shall also “destroy many in their prosperity” …and rise against the Prince of Prince’s (Messiah), (v. 25). This would make him an Antichrist figure. In the days and years ahead, it should be important to watch who comes against Iran (Persia) as the end time Goat, who appears to not only subdue Iran, but cause general destruction in the Middle East. Only time will tell as we watch all this unfold, if we are correct in seeing this, the key to the identity of the Antichrist will be his overpowering and defeat of Iran in the future.
Does Israel have the capabilities to take out Iran…? Yes, definitely but we believe the real reason why not could be that Israel will not strike Iran because it is based on biblical prophecy. For several months now we have all been watching and speculating on when Israel would take some kind of military action against the nuclear sites in Iran. From an Israeli perspective, the major issue does not appear to be the initial strike. Israel may indeed attack. But even if she does, Iran will not be significantly injured. In Ezekiel 38, God tells us that Iran will join Russia, Turkey, and other distant enemies of the Jews in a ‘surprise attack.’ We believe this attack will take place soon and if Iran’s war-making capabilities were severely damaged she wouldn’t have the necessary means to participate. During Prime Minister Netanyahu’s last visit to Auschwitz, he said that horrible place held some of the “dry bones” that had been prophesied of in Ezekiel 37. Considering Bibi Netanyahu’s knowledge of Scripture, we cannot believe that he is unaware of a secret, future attack against Israel predicted in Ezekiel 38 and 39. By the way, Russia, Iran, and all of the other forces that will attack Israel on that future day will suffer a catastrophic defeat …and the good news is that Christians will no longer be on the earth!
Israel is mentioned as the Glorious Land in Daniel 8:9 … In the Hebrew, the same term is used for the land of Israel in Ezekiel 20:6 (the glory of all lands), Ezekiel 25:9 (the glory of the country), and in Daniel 11:16; 41. Similar wording is used in Psalm 48:2. We can rightly see the Glorious Land as the centre of the world …It is the nerve centre of civilization since the days of Abraham …It is the truth centre from which flowed God’s revelation to man … It is the storm centre of warring nations since the days of Joshua … It will be the peace centre of the earth during the millennial reign of Yeshua (Jesus) … And, it will be the home centre for the Jewish people forever more.
Please remember (if you ever doubt there is a God) that Israel’s enemies’ defeat should remove any doubt that God exists and loves the Jews! We are living through an absolutely fantastic time, and everything is wrapping up …just as prophesied!
