Prophecy Update: World War Three? 10/25/23
The prospect of a new world war is disconcerting to many who wish to advance peace. The Bible is clear that there are going to be global wars. The first world war happened in Genesis 3 when Satan convinced Adam and Eve to rebel against God and start a global war. This war has been going on for six thousand years between the saved and unsaved. The second world war started after Abraham was given the blueprint for salvation in Genesis 12. Satan has fought against Israel and the Messiah who would come from her since that time. The third global war came during David’s reign because now Satan had to worry about a city. The city of Jerusalem would be the catalyst for the final war, Armageddon! World War One (1914-1918) and World War Two (1939-1945) had a spiritual connection to Israel, the Church, and Jerusalem.
A secular history teacher Nial Ferguson wrote an incredible book called: “Civilization: The West and the Rest.” I am fascinated by the book because what he deems the reason for the West’s success does not include the most important reason. Here is what the book is about:
“Beginning in the fifteenth century, the West developed six powerful new concepts that the Rest lacked: competition, science, the rule of law, consumerism, modern medicine, and the work ethic. These were the “killer applications” that allowed the West to leap ahead of the Rest, opening global trade routes, exploiting newly discovered scientific laws, evolving a system of representative government, more than doubling life expectancy, unleashing the Industrial Revolution, and embracing a dynamic work ethic. Civilization shows just how fewer than a dozen Western empires came to control more than half of humanity and four fifths of the world economy.” https://wcfia.harvard.edu/
The reason the West leapt forward was because the six killer apps were rooted in the Judeo-Christian worldview and the Scriptures. The Protestant Reformation was a turning point, not just spiritually but culturally. The work ethic that Ferguson wrote about he called the ‘word ethic’ because it was so important for people to learn to read the Bible. This “Word/Work ethic included the nations of the West, and they leapt forward economically because they started believing the Biblical worldview that the provisions of earth were unlimited! Why? Because God is eternal. Capitalism is rooted in the biblical idea of personal property rights and the unlimited resources given by God. Satan did not like this! All wars start because the Judeo-Christian worldview is being violated!
Why is there a war in Israel today? Satan hates Jews and he loves to curse Jerusalem. He has convinced a whole religion that it is their duty to take out the Jews. He perpetrated this lie since the days of Abraham. He convinced the Nazi’s that they had to kill every Jew in the world. Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, Wahabi, Islamic Jihad, Palestinian Authority, and all the countries included in the Organization of Islamic States believe the lie. This war only makes sense if you know the Scriptures.
“Hamas-Israel war: Palestinians, allies are to blame for the coming Nakba – opinion: The Palestinians and their allies have brought down on their own head the coming losses and suffering, this coming Nakba, in the Hamas-Israel war. The Palestinians have often asserted that the creation of Israel was the cause of their Nakba (catastrophe). But they have failed to acknowledge that they brought the Nakba on themselves by their own actions and those of their leadership. The same holds true for the forthcoming invasion of Gaza, which will inevitably cause many deaths and heavy damage to the Gaza infrastructure. The Hamas brutality and mass murder of October 7 left Israel no alternative but to invade to stop future massacres.” https://www.jpost.com/
“We started by asking Niall Ferguson whether President Biden is right when he said, on Sunday, that “We’re the United States of America, for God’s sake. . . . We can take care of both of these and still maintain our overall international defense.” Can the U.S. support Ukraine and Israel at the same time?
In theory, the United States is capable of coping with two international crises at the same time. Especially given the fact that the U.S. is not directly fighting in Ukraine, it really ought to be possible for America to assist Israel against Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah, not to mention their Iranian sponsor. The question is whether an administration that has such a bad record on deterrence is going to fail again to deter a hostile power. Remember, they failed to deter Russia from invading Ukraine. And at the moment, I fear they’re going to fail to deter Iran from launching further attacks on Israel from Lebanon via their Hezbollah client.”
America is failing because of two rejections: The American culture has rejected the Judeo-Christian Worldview and because they have embraced the globalist agenda. Biden’s pride in this last speech is unbelievable. America cannot handle a war on two fronts, let alone one front.
“If you find the terminology of World War III alarmist, as some people do, I would merely point out that the objective of Russia is to wipe Ukraine from the map, the objective of Iran and Hamas is to wipe Israel from the map, and the objective of China is to end Taiwan’s democracy and autonomy. And if the United States fails to prevent those things from happening, we will be in as dark a situation as the world was in in the late 1930s when the totalitarian regimes were able to change borders with an utter disregard for international law. So it’s a bad situation.“ https://www.thefp.com/
It is a bad situation because Biblical Prophecy is being fulfilled. God is pushing the world to adopt the one world government so He can save His people Israel, rapture the church, open the door for Anti-Christ, and then mess them all up by sending Moses and Elijah to ruin everything for them for 3.5 years!
“Blinken, Austin: We’re Ready for War In the Middle East: Shortly after the terror attacks of October 7, the United States’ position initially appeared to be very clear. This was Israel’s war to fight and we would provide material and vocal support, but allow them to handle it as they saw fit. That lasted for about two weeks. By this past weekend, the situation had shifted noticeably, with threats of escalation showing up to the north of Israel from Hezbollah and rocket attacks on American posts in various places, including Iraq. And now both the Secretary of State and the Defense Secretary are clearly preparing the country for the possibility that the entire situation may blow up and our military is “ready” to go to war if we must. That’s a lot to soak in on a Monday morning, but a wider war may turn out to be inevitable unless Iran can be convinced to back down. (Associated Press)https://hotair.com/
Joe Biden bears a significant amount of blame for the war in Ukraine and Israel. We didn’t see this level of war and fighting in the Middle East or Ukraine during the Trump administration because we were cracking down on Iran, enforcing sanctions, keeping them from prospering on their oil exports, and taking out leading terrorist figures like Sulieman, and bombed them with missiles when they got out of line. I think Russia feared Trump. That all changed when Joe Biden took office. He begged Iran to restart Obama’s nuclear deal so he could give them more money. Iran has grown fat with cash under Biden’s watch, Biden has acted like a mafia Don, handing out cash to all he wants to corrupt. (Cash and weapons for Ukraine have showed up in Gaza and with Hezbollah: so Biden has cursed Israel) Iran shipped massive amounts of oil to China and other destinations, all of which should have been blocked under the existing sanctions. OBiden does not want Netanyahu to be in charge or get any praise for a victory over Hamas so he has delayed, stymied, threatened, and stood in the way of Israel!
When Biden pulled us out of Afghanistan the way he did, the whole Muslim world knew that Biden was weak, and Biden would do what they wanted. That is what he has done. This next article explains this:
“With the eyes of the world transfixed upon the UN Security Council’s vote on whether or not to seek a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, a less heralded event coming out of the council may prove to be even more consequential should that conflict widen. October 18th marked the expiration of UN Security Council Resolution 2231. The resolution was passed in 2015 as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action more commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Deal. One core component of the provisions set forth by the resolution was the prohibition of transferring missiles, drones, and adjacent weapons technologies to and from Iran. With the resolution’s expiration, Iran is now free to send and receive those arms. With the risk of a northern front emerging in the conflict between Israel and Hamas that would see Hezbollah enter intro the fray, the ability to Iran to freely transfer its military technology looms large. Israel has expressed its concern about Hezbollah using the vulnerability presented by the IDF’s focus on an impending ground invasion of the Gaza Strip to its advantage by launching an offensive out of southern Lebanon. As a conduit of Iran, that risk is exacerbated by Lebanon’s ability to now receive advanced military technologies from its middle eastern ally.” The Russian Foreign Ministry issued remarks on the matter stating “Supplies to and from Iran of products falling under the Missile Technology Control Regime no longer require prior approval by the U.N. Security Council,” on Tuesday. Although the ministry’s tight lipped remarks did not delve into any forthcoming plans to aid in the advancement of Iran’s missile development program, the absence of any internationally binding resolution on the matter foreshadows that inevitability.” https://www.zerohedge.com/
So, let’s get this straight; Iran can now freely send all its missile technology to whomever it wants to? Can you say Gog Magog!!? Can you say Obama runs the White House and has just secured a blessing to Iran to destroy Israel! This is their ultimate goal. But God!!!
“Tucker Carlson sat down with Col. Douglas Macgregor (ret.), who laid out a disturbing scenario in which the United States could quickly be pulled into a direct conflict with Iran, Russia and China over Israel’s anticipated response to the October 7 Hamas attack. “So what would war with Iran mean? “The chosen destination” if we continue on this path, “is Armageddon,” and the implications (of which nobody seems to be considering) for the United States, Europe, and the Middle East are grave. For example, “just on the economic side, about 20% of the world’s oil passes through the Straits of Hormuz every month – probably 25% of liquefied natural gas, and you’re talking about shutting down 2 to three million barrels a day of oil from Iran. We have the wild-card in Israel. They do have a nuclear capability. We don’t know what the trip wire is for them to employ such a weapon. At that point of course, all bets are off and I think most of the world would turn against Israel. Right now, they just have to worry about the Muslim world against them,” he continued, explaining that by focusing on Hamas and Hezbollah as immediate threats, the broader implications are obscured. For example, attacking urban environments such as Gaza comes with a high risk of civilian casualties – the consequences of which would catastrophic, both morally and strategically. “Hezbollah has a very large operation in Mexico,” says Macgregor. “There are no doubt many, many Hezbollah agents inside the United States. We can only begin to imagine the kind of trouble they could cause.” https://www.zerohedge.com/
Col. Macgregor does not speak from a Christian worldview so he is missing a very important fact. He is missing that just as God did not fail to give His land to His people in Joshua’s day, so He will not fail to give all the land of Israel to His people, the Jews, in our day!! Do you think that the nations are going to boast that God could not fulfill His Word in Ezekiel 36, Jeremiah 30-31, Amos 9, etc. God is going to accomplish His Word again and the Jews will possess their land as they did in the days of Joshua, it is prophesied! They are bragging across the Muslim world and in the West Bank.
“Fatah’s Terror Wing Brags It Helped Hamas in Massacre, Promises to Continue Terror: Less than two days after Hamas launched its terror war against Israelis, killing 1,400 people — among them infants, children, teens, women, men, and elderly — Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah Movement applauded the massacre and promised more terror via its terror wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. In a video posted by the Brigades, a spokesman, Abu Muhammad, thanks Allah for the massacre and for “humiliating and defeating the Zionists,” and brags that Fatah’s Brigades are “fighting” with the Gazan terror organizations and that they also carried out their own terror attacks “behind enemy lines,” meaning within Israel.” https://www.algemeiner.com/
The whole Muslim world is bragging against our God and the UN, Iran, Russia, China, and the USA is doing all it can to curse Israel. The God of Israel will show up and put down the sin, arrogance, and Psalm 83 desire to wipe out Israel as a nation that the name of Israel will be remembered no more. They will fail!
