What Did You Think Would Happen?

With the rise of the New World Order, we see the predictions from the Bible coming true! God prophesied that in the last days there would be persecution of the church, peace deals in the Middle East, and the rise of an alliance that will attack Israel. These three truths are the subject of our update.

Persecution

“Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.” Luke 6:22

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.” John 15:18

“and you will be hated by all because of My name.” Luke 21:17

The Persecution Of Christians Is Escalating Dramatically All Over The World. “Ethiopia: Extremists have been conducting a door-to-door campaign as they search for Christians to kill… At least 500 Christians have been killed in an ongoing spate of coordinated door-to-door attacks and thousands of traumatized survivors have fled for their lives over the last two months in southern Ethiopia’s Oromia regional state, including its capital Addis Ababa, according to reports. In South Sudan, 23 Christians were gunned down at a church gathering on July 27th. This year already nearly 2,000 Christians have been mercilessly hacked and shot to death in surprise raids on Nigerian villages. In India, religious extremists regularly kill Christians, but those deaths rarely get much attention. The Chinese government seems to have decided that the elimination of the Christian faith should be official government policy.” prophecynewswatch.com

The persecution of the church is the precursor to the antichrist’s reign of terror. Satan is in an all-out effort to eliminate the church. The church is being attacked from without and within. John Macarthur has taken a heroic stand for the church in America. The California state government said he could not meet in his church with his people and they did anyways! The pastors who want to tickle peoples ears do not like it that pastors are standing up and defying the government. This battle is going to get more intense as we get closer to the rapture of the church.

Abraham Accords

“While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.” 1Thess.5:3

Any peace deal in the Middle East makes Christians nervous. We know that a peace deal will be the beginning of the tribulation period. When antichrist signs the peace deal, it will mark the beginning of the seven-year tribulation. The deal that President Trump presented in January is not the peace deal the Bible predicts.

President Trump cut the Palestinian Authority out of any peace deal.  The way he did it was to ask them to agree to things to which they will never agree!  The peace deal included…

  • Hamas has to give up hating Israel
  • Disarm
  • Agree that Israel has a right to the land
  • Palestinian Authority has to stop paying terrorists
  • Give up the demand for Jerusalem
  • Give up the right of return

Why did Trump do this? He did it to make peace with Arab states who are at war with Iran!

Iran threatens to destroy Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Israel, the United States, and all Sunni Arab states. In 2015 President Obama signed a deal with Iran that betrayed all of the Sunni states, Israel, and America. Trump has used this horrible deal with Iran to gain the trust of the Arab States!!

Trump stopped the deal with Iran and attacked Iran with deals of his own.

  • In January, he killed the hero of Iran, Qasem Soleimani.
  • The Abraham Accords: The Arab league has 22 states and they voted to accept the Abraham Accords against the Palestinian Authority, against the will of the UN, the EU, the New World Order, and all of the left in the USA!

Joe Biden already said that he would go back to the deal with Iran, helping them with their goal of destroying Saudi Arabia. Iran wants to destroy Saudi Arabia because they believe they are the true leaders of Islam!

Trump: ‘We Mark the Dawn of a New Middle East’: “Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the United States signed the historic Abraham Accords at a celebratory White House ceremony Tuesday, marking the first time since the 1994 Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty that an Arab country signed such a pact with the Jewish state. “Thank you … for joining us in bringing hope to all the children of Abraham,” Netanyahu said, expressing a desire that Tuesday’s events would help “end the Israeli-Arab conflict once and for all.” themedialine.org

In response to the Abraham Accords, Iran threaten war. They are desperate.  I think that it will lead to the war that God teaches us in Ezekiel 38-39.

Gog Magog War

“After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.” Ezekiel 38:8

The conflict in the Middle East over oil and gas is at the heart of why the Gog Magog war will transpire. Israel will control the free flow of oil and gas out of the Middle East as a result of the Abraham Accords. This is something that Russia and Iran cannot allow to happen.

Large number of Russian warships deployed between Syria and Cyprus: “A large number of Russian warships were recently tracked off the coasts of Syria and Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean region, the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported. Experts are seriously concerned about the presence of at least 15 Russian warships and submarines off the coast of Syria. This is the first time such a large military formation has been seen here, which raises suspicions about whether Russia plans to engage in a military special operation against jihadists using the navy. This Russian naval buildup also comes at a time of increased tension between Turkey, Cyprus and Greece in the eastern Mediterranean, as the latter two countries have accused Ankara of encroaching on their territorial waters.” almasdarnews.com

Russia has a serious problem in the Mediterranean Sea. Since Russia controls the gas market in Europe, they do not want competition in the European market.

  • Israel and Greece pose a direct threat to Russia because of the large amounts of gas they found and plan on shipping to Europe.
  • Turkey wants this gas for themselves so they have maneuvered their troops and navy to start a war with Greece.
  • France has come to the aid of Greece against the Turks

The Mediterranean Sea is a tinderbox for war. To make matters worse, Israel has just increased the likelihood of more gas and oil coming through Israel to Europe from UAE and Saudi Arabia!

UAE Deal Boosts Israeli Oil Pipeline Secretly Built With Iran: “The Jewish state is about to play a much bigger role in the region’s energy trade and petroleum politics. With the UAE formally scrapping the eight-decade Arab boycott of Israel—and other oil-rich Gulf neighbors likely to follow suit—the Jewish state is on the cusp of playing a much bigger role in the region’s energy trade, petroleum politics, and Big Oil investments. Stepping cautiously out of the shadows, the Israeli managers of Europe Asia Pipeline Co. (EAPC) say their 158-mile conduit from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea provides both a cheaper alternative to Egypt’s Suez Canal and an option to connect to the Arab pipeline grid that transports oil and gas not just to the region, but to the seaports that supply the world. While much of the hoopla over the UAE-Israel pact has focused on other sectors such as technology, health care, education, and tourism, the Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline brings the deal into the realm of petroleum, the beating heart of the Persian Gulf economy.” foreignpolicy.com

This is groundbreaking news that is causing great waves in the Middle East. Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, and the Palestinian Authority have threatened war over this. President Trump threatened Iran with a devastating blow militarily if they tried to attack us! This peace deal gives Arab states an ally against Iran that they did not have previously.

What everyone needs to understand is that the two state solution is dead. It is dead because the Palestinian Authority has been exposed as a fraud and the Arab League abandoned them! God prophesied that the land of Israel will be possessed by Israel, not the Palestinian Authority. Under the Trump plan, the settlements will come under Israeli law. The Palestinian Authority believes the settlements are illegal and Jews need to leave the land.  This will lead to war.  This war will give Israel more of her land as the Bible predicts.

Trump’s Mideast deals tout ‘peace’ where there was never war “The United Arab Emirates will establish diplomatic relations with Israel, a fellow U.S. ally it has never gone to war with, formalizing ties that go back several years. The agreement cements an informal alliance against Iran and could pave the way for the UAE to acquire advanced U.S. weapons, while leaving the far more contentious Israeli-Palestinian conflict as intractable as ever.” ynetnews.com

Notice that the problem is Iran not Israel. Now that the Arab League is moving towards Israel and giving tacit approval for these peace deals, it will lead to a backlash among Islamists. The civil war between Shia Islam and Sunni Islam will cause a war that will give Israel all of her land. Bible Prophecy is being advanced in our day—what a privilege to live in these days!

UAE-Israel deal to be phased to block Israel from applying sovereignty before 2024: “A separate report by The Times of Israel this week cited three officials with direct knowledge of the negotiations between Israel and the UAE who said that the Trump administration promised the UAE that it would not recognize any move by Israel to apply sovereignty in Judea and Samaria prior to 2024 – President Trump’s last year in office if he is reelected this November.” israelnationalnews.com

Part of the deal is for Israel to delay applying sovereignty to the West Bank. However, the deal gives one quarter of the West Bank to Israel regardless of the words of all the players. Look at the actions—Israel now controls the whole Jordan Valley. God will use this to cause the Islamists to attack then Israel can take more of the land.

I think the Abraham Accords is setting up conflict that will lead to the eventual rise of Antichrist. Here is why I am so confident.

  • Iran has a belief that in order for their Muslim messiah to come on the scene, they must start a worldwide war.
  • They believe that the Houthis are fulfilling Islamic prophecy by fighting against Saudi Arabia.
  • The Ayatollah has claimed that he met with the Mahdi (Islamic messiah) and they are right on schedule for his return.
  • When General Soleimani was killed in January, the Ayatollah tweeted, “We congratulate Imam Mahdi and Soleimani’s pure soul and condole the Iranian nation on this great martyrdom.” jpost.com
  • The Ayatollah believes that Iran will cause a global upheaval from this incident that will bring their beloved Mahdi.

“The Zionist regime is the epitome of evil,” he tweeted on Valentine’s Day in 2016.

It is a “racist, usurping, lying, vicious, apartheid regime,” he added on February 5, 2019. What then must be done?

“Once people in the West realize their problems stem from Zionist domination over governments, great social movements will give birth to a new world,” he explained on 2 March 2015. Accordingly, the “barbaric, wolflike and infanticidal regime of Israel which spares no crime but to be annihilated.”  jpost.com

The Abraham Accords will eventually lead to the Gog Magog war.  Our responsibility as Christians is to share the gospel, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and live justly before God as we await the rapture.
