As I began to pray and think about what to write, my mind quickly turned to the many things that have hit the news very recently. Obviously there are many scoffers walking after their own lusts, church members and non-church members who question the promise of His coming (II Pet. 3:3-4).
But when it comes to relating current events to Bible prophecy they have a veil over their minds and they are blind to what is going on (II Cor. 3:12-16).
Concerning the battle of Gog and Magog, the P5 + 1 agreement with Iran could result in a war that will change the world (Ezek. 38-39). With the negotiations dragging on through missed deadlines and overtime sessions on July 5, 2015 it was reported that the IDF has appointed a special team to plan for a potential Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities if an attack is needed.
According to the report, Israel believed a planning team was needed at that time because the P5 +1 were close to signing an agreement that would require an Israeli military attack.
Indeed, an agreement was signed that lets Iran get a nuclear bomb in the next 3 months to 10 years depending upon whether the Mullahs keep the agreement or not; lets Iran sell oil to acquire money that can be used to strengthen its military and fund terrorism; requires Israel, the EU and others to have anti-missile systems to defend against Iranian nuclear missiles, etc.
Almost immediately, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu said Israel won’t be bound by that agreement. Support for a war with Iran surged in Israel and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia said it would wreak havoc in the already destabilized Middle East.
Many pundits can’t understand why Pres. Obama would agree to what some are calling an insane document, but it occurs to this writer that he may be deliberately trying to destabilize the Middle East to create a crisis that will allow Globalists to bring in their cherished New World Order (world government).
Concerning the North American Union (perhaps one of the Ten Regions headed up by the Ten Kings), on July 10, 2015 it was reported that Rush Limbaugh spoke out on the controversy surrounding Donald Trump’s quest for the Republican nomination for president of the U.S.
Mr. Trump has drawn strong criticism over his opposition to sanctuary cities and the failure of government officials to deport Hispanic illegal alien criminals. Mr. Limbaugh believes the root cause of this criticism is the Globalist fear that Mr. Trump could upset the Globalist plan to surrender the sovereignty of the U.S. by merging Canada, Mexico and the U.S. into a North American Union.
According to the Bible, the rise of the Ten Kings is a prerequisite to the rise of the Antichrist (Dan. 7:8). We can look for the Confederate flag to be replaced with the American flag and that to be replaced with the NAU flag.
Concerning the division of Israel, on July 9, 2015 it was reported that the re-established Jewish Sanhedrin has threatened to put Pope Francis on trial if he doesn’t apologize for misinterpreting Bible prophecy, not recognizing that God gave the Promised Land to Israel forever (Gen. 17:7-8), saying God has replaced Israel (a false doctrine called Replacement Theology) and officially recognizing the State of Palestine.
The Sanhedrin has accused the Pope of blatant anti-Semitism and it is very upset over his decision to recognize a State of Palestine which would require the division of Israel, and the removal of Jews. It is the main reason why God will drag the nations into the battle of Armageddon (Joel 3:2).
Concerning the rebuilding of the Temple, on July 12, 2015 it was reported that the Temple Institute has started a “Raise a Red Heifer in Israel Fund.” According to the Bible, a third Temple must be built in Israel before the middle of the Tribulation period (Dan. 9:27; Matt. 24:15-16; II Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 11:1).
Priests who build this third Temple and all who serve there must first be cleansed with water of separation containing the ashes of a sacrificed unblemished three-year old red heifer (Num. 19). So the Temple Institute has started a fund to produce and care for a red heifer without spot and blemish in Israel, which they see as a prerequisite for the building of the third Temple.
Concerning the coming economic collapse, in addition to the Greek default, Puerto Rico’s problems and the 30%+ decline in China’s stock market, on July 15, 2015 it was reported that Texas will soon establish a bank called the Texas Bullion Depository. Customers will be allowed to store precious metals (gold, silver, etc.) there and it will be protected from seizure by our broke U.S. government.
It has been an exciting 10 days and there is a lot more that can’t be covered or this article will be too long. Just know that Bible prophecy is advancing very fast and our going home may be closer than many think.
