Prophecy Update: Wars and really we are going to war! 8/3/2022
The Bible gives a lot of indications that there will be global wars prior to the seven year tribulation period. The Scriptures make it plain that wars in the Middle East will dominate the headlines prior to the tribulation period. Some wars will be global in nature. Here are some scriptures that teach this:
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Matt.24:6-7
They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out [fn]as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4
This gives us a good overview of the 20th century that saw constant warfare and two world wars. The cold war was characterized by constant wars in places like Korea, Vietnam, and Israel. The 21st century started with a bang and wars have not stopped.
“Nuclear arsenals are swelling. Conflict is on the rise. Millions are displaced. International law is disregarded with impunity, as criminal and terrorist networks profit from the division and violence. This is the situation the world finds itself in today. According to the Council on Foreign Relations’s Global Conflict Tracker, there are currently 27 ongoing conflicts worldwide.” https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content/facts-about-world-conflicts/#:~:text=According%20to%20the%20Council%20on,currently%2
The current conflict with Russia and China has its roots in the 1970’s. The USA had compromised its Christian values in WW2 when they had to use the dragon (USSR) to defeat the Nazis. This compromise with communism led millions into slavery and death. The death camps of the USSR (Gulag) filled up with Europeans in the aftermath of WW2 because of compromises from the victorious allies. This compromise with the devil has led us to the current conflict.
“Nixon’s meeting with Chinese leader Mao Zedong [signaled America’s] formal recognition of the People’s Republic of China, after the latter had regained its seat in the UN, which had [previously] been held by the National Government of [the Republic of] China – Taiwan. Formal diplomatic ties between Washington and Beijing were established based on the ‘One China’ principle, which [regards] Taiwan as an integral part of China. This principle was the basis of the diplomatic relations between the two countries. But, despite this, the U.S. continues to maintain unofficial economic and security relations with Taiwan, which Beijing regards as a violation of agreements…https://www.memri.org/reports/emirati-al-khalij-daily-us-employing-confrontational-policy-against-china-which-could-lead
The 1970’s saw many compromises with the communist devils, China and the USSR. Nixon was responsible for betraying Taiwan and subsequent presidents have been up and down on their commitments to freedom, especially when it came to Taiwan.
“After China launched its Belt and Road Initiative in 2017, the U.S. began changing its strategy by shifting its military focus to the Pacific in order to confront China’s expansion. Then it started to forge military alliances in order to besiege Beijing. And, as a complementary move, it recently declared, through NATO, that China challenges the interests and security of the NATO countries. Furthermore, in his meetings with European and NATO leaders in the past month, President Joe Biden tried to convince these leaders that opposing Russia and confronting China were complementary, rather than contradictory, objectives. During his visit to Japan [in May 2022], Biden expressed that the U.S. would defend Taiwan in the case of a Chinese attack on it – thus openly relinquishing the strategic obfuscation policy that consecutive U.S. administrations had taken.” https://www.memri.org/reports/emirati-al-khalij-daily-us-employing-confrontational-policy-against-china-which-could-lead
The Bible is very clear that the final kingdom on the earth, the one that the antichrist will lead, comes out of Europe. This means that the current push for world dominance out of China and Russia will fail. War will ensue with these nations. The west will be divided over how to handle the situation and out of the chaos will come the man with the plan. The antichrist will ride in on a white horse with all of the answers.
“Then came the decision of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan, which poured oil on the fire of the crisis, and China warned that the U.S. ‘would be responsible for all the implications of the visit.’
“It appears that the American decision-makers have decided to renege on all the commitments that have been signed with China and to continue provoking it, in disregard of the danger inherent in this approach. They are also disregarding the warning of the architect of U.S.-China relations, Henry Kissinger, who advised the U.S. to form ties with China and find ways to cooperate with it, otherwise the world will slide into a catastrophe comparable to a World War.” https://www.memri.org/reports/emirati-al-khalij-daily-us-employing-confrontational-policy-against-china-which-could-lead
The Chinese conflict can only go towards war. China has been planning a war with Taiwan and America for years. As of this morning, Wednesday (8/3) China has prepositioned its army for the invasion. Here are the headlines this morning:

The Iranians have been very active lately. With the USA concentrating on Russia and China, the Iranians have developed a nuke, have threatened to use nukes against the USA and Israel, and not many in the administration take them seriously. The basic premise of the state department is that it is good for the middle east if Iran counters Israel as a nuclear state.
“The “Bisimchi Media” channel on Telegram, which is reportedly affiliated with the IRGC, posted a video on July 29, 2022 titled “When Will Iran’s Nuclear Bombs Be Awakened From Their Slumber?” It should be noted that the video refers not only to an Iranian nuclear attack but also, for the first time, to an Iranian intercontinental ballistic missile attack on New York. The video mentions the Iranian military nuclear “Emad Project” that will be activated in the blink of an eye in the event of an Israeli or Western attack on Iran. It adds that if the vulnerable nuclear facility at Natanz is attacked, the invulnerable Fordo facility will immediately begin production of nuclear weapons, and that if “hostile steps” are taken by the U.S., Iran’s intercontinental ballistic missiles will turn New York into “a heap of rubble from Hell.” https://www.memri.org/reports/shift-iranian-regime-statements-nuclear-weapons-regime-spokesmen-talk-openly-obtaining-them
Jeremiah 49:34-39 gives a prophecy about Elam which is part of Iran.Two phrases from the prophecy are “I will shatter Elam” vs.37 and “I will set my throne in Elam” vs.38. This prophecy has never been fulfilled!
Jeremiah’s foretelling of Iran’s Future presents us with a treasure trove of clues that may enlighten us about the fate of Iran’s current nuclear aspirations.The war-weary world is watching with worrisome eyes as Iran assembles a uranium enrichment arsenal, “Israeli Official: Iran to Have 50–100 Nuclear Warheads by 2024”
Jeremiah 49:36: Against Elam I will bring the four winds From the four quarters of heaven, And scatter them toward all those winds; There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
For a plethora of justifiable reasons, Israel, many Arabs, and much of the international community are deeply troubled by the prospects of the current rogue Islamic Iranian regime possessing such a robust atomic arsenal. Jeremiah’s foretelling of Iran’s future presents us with a treasure trove of clues that may enlighten us about the fate of Iran’s current nuclear aspirations.“Iran Has Double Trouble Ahead, Ezekiel 38 and Jeremiah 49” https://www.khouse.org/articles/2014/1199/
Elam is part of Iran, the territory that houses most of its nuclear facilities. God has said that the territory will be destroyed and the people scattered around the world. The two prophecies of Jer.49 and Ezek.38 are related. Both show that war is coming in the Middle East and Iran is going to be hit hard. We are on the cusp of these two wars. Both of these wars will include Russia and China. Chinese troops are already in the Middle East and China.Although China is not mentioned in the prophecies, they will have an ancillary relationship providing arms and intelligence as they have treaties with both Iran and Russia. One of the nuclear plants, Bushehr, is in Elam. Here is an interesting quote regarding that nuclear plant:
“Bushehr, however, could turn out to be the most dangerous piece of Iran’s nuclear puzzle for another reason: haphazard planning and ongoing technical problems mean it could be the next Chernobyl, igniting a humanitarian disaster and explosive economic damage across the oil-rich region.”
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and that God will get the glory. He has a great plan in all of this. Like the song says, these are the days of Elijah–very exciting!
