There are many uncertainties in this world today, but this we know for sure: There is coming a day when the faithful will be called to meet Him in the air. If you aren’t looking for Him, you aren’t going with Him. That is why this message is so crucial because one day EVERY knee will bow, and EVERY tongue confess that He is the Lord our God! And there is no one like Him.
Read through the 38th chapter of Ezekiel. The chapter ends like this: “Then they shall know that I am the Lord,” (v. 23b). That is an incredibly powerful statement. But what will happen before that time? What does Bible prophecy tell us? If we open the Word of God, it gives us a prophetic view of tomorrow with precise accuracy.
The world is fascinated with the future of planet earth, grasping at straws in their search for answers. The rich and powerful are digging underground cities, looking over their shoulders at the possibility of a nuclear mushroom cloud coming our way. People are hoarding food, living in fear that we might one day run out.
Psalm 37:25 tells us, “I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging for bread.” Fear not, friends! We serve a God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and He always has your very best interests in mind. Has He brought you this far only to let you down now? Certainly not!
Do not live in fear of what the future might bring! You know who holds tomorrow in the palm of His hand.
Will Russia once again become the mighty USSR? Will Iran attack $150 billion? Will there be another terrorist attack on our streets? Will the global markets crash? Are wars about to explode between Iran and Israel?
If you think that Bible prophecy is just Old Testament news, think again! 25% of the Bible is prophecy, and it affects us today in a very real and tangible way. Written more than 3,000 years ago, God’s Word predicts the future like no other source ever known to man.
4 Kings, 2 Objectives, 1 Antichrist
Bible prophecy reveals that immediately prior to the Rapture of the Church, four powerful kings will race onto the stage of world history with two objectives. The first objective is to conquer the world and bring it under a global dictatorship. This dictator will seek to sit on an imperial throne as the king of all the earth, stripping you of your freedoms and civil rights. Is any of this starting to sound familiar? Think this could never happen? Think again! You can stand by, say and do nothing, and watch as we all become slaves of the state.
The second objective is to conquer Israel and destroy the Jewish people. Israel is currently surrounded by nations that are screaming for their blood. Anti-Semitism is raging throughout Europe. Jews are being targeted for assassination in France. And if you don’t think this is true, just read the news. Earlier this year, an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor was brutally murdered in Paris simply because she was a Jew. The stage is being set for the drama of the ages.
Last year, Iran launched a drone from Syria into Israel. That drone penetrated Israel’s airspace and was shot down by an Apache helicopter. Israel responded by sending jets into Syria to destroy the Iranian base that launched the drone. The base was destroyed. And this was certainly not the only incident in Israel, as many are never released to the public. Israel and the Jewish people, in general, are under constant attack. These are signs of the times, my friends. Are you paying attention?
But fear not! The God that keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. He has a set time to deal with the nations of the world and Israel is God’s prophetic time clock. I believe that we are indeed watching the preliminary birth pains of the Gog-Magog wars mentioned in Ezekiel 38.
The four kings who are principal players in this prophecy are on center stage RIGHT NOW for the first time in history.
Think about it. Their stories were written by Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel, and John the Revelator. And NOW it’s happening, unfolding before our very eyes. You are watching a massive, prophetic geopolitical drama unfold on the front pages of our newspapers. You see it broadcast on TV every day as turmoil continues to flood our streets like never before.
Why should you care? Because the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ happens before the Gog-Magog wars take place. Psalm 102:13 tells us, “You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time has come.”
One of the greatest Jewish scholars in the world, Rabbi RaDaK, writes, “When the sun turns to darkness (like an eclipse), and the moon turns to blood (like the four blood moons described in Joel) ...this will occur at the Gog-Magog War.” This war is the beginning of World War III. A Russian headline recently read, “Russia Warns of a New World War.” Russia gets it, but for some reason, the rest of the world does not. We are racing toward the end of the world as we know it.
The King of the North is coming from Russia. The King of the South represents Egypt and the Arabic Islamic nations. When Ezekiel speaks of Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya in Chapter 38:5, he is speaking of the Arabic Islamic states. The King of the East represents China. China has a massive military that has no respect or fear of the U.S. The King of the West is the Anti-Christ.
In the Bible, all locations are given with regard to the city of Jerusalem. In the eyes of Almighty God, Jerusalem is the center of the world.
It is the most important city on the planet today, tomorrow, and for all of eternity. And when Christ returns, He will rule and reign from Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is now and will always be the eternal and undivided capital of the Jewish people. Jerusalem has never belonged to anyone but the Jewish people. It is theirs according to the covenant that God made with Abraham in the Book of Genesis.
I am thrilled beyond my ability to express that the American Embassy has been moved to Jerusalem where it belongs. I pray that God will bless this administration, and our nation, for all that it is doing to support Israel.
Currently, in America, we see great blessings. Our economy is growing, the enemies of democracy and their evil corruption are being exposed, and our military is being rebuilt with stronger infrastructure. We are seeing the results of a nation who honors Israel and God’s chosen people.
But if we continue to function on the streets, in our homes, and in our churches as people who do not honor the Lord with our lives, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
So, pack up, pray up, and look up, because soon and very soon we are going to see the King, where He will rule and reign for all of eternity.
