For many Bible scholars, the world’s prophetic super sign, Israel, is the center of the cyclone. There is a strong possibility that Israel will strike Iran’s nuclear production facilities in the immediate future. When this happens, there will be serious repercussions throughout the Middle East and the world. The greatest danger is the escalation of regional thermonuclear war into global thermonuclear war. Regional thermonuclear war could send economic shockwaves across the world, Europe and the U.S. This economic crisis could create martial law, severe food shortages and governmental collapse around the world. If the Iranian Navy, along with the help of nations like Russia, can block the Strait of Hormuz, Iran has the power to crash the world’s economy, by withholding oil!
According to Charles Krauthammer, in an article entitled, “The Abandonment,” “Not since its birth has Israel been so cast adrift by its closest ally.” The consequences of abandoning Israel by America or any other nation is clearly spelled out in the Abrahamic Covenant that God made to Abraham and his physical descendants, giving them the physical land of Israel. The land is not given on the basis of their righteousness or goodness. In the Abrahamic Covenant, God say’s, “I will bless those that bless thee (Israel) and curse those that curse thee (Israel).” America is on the verge of economic collapse and totalitarianism to manage the chaos, either from the left or right. To put it bluntly, if America is cursed by God, I don’t believe America will survive as a nation.
All across the Middle East there have been attacks on the U.S. A third US aircraft carrier, USS Stennis, is moving into place for leading 25 nations in a 12-day naval exercise off Iran’s Gulf coast. A large-scale mine-sweeping drill will simulate the prevention of Iranian efforts to block the Strait of Hormuz. There is an armada of British naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike. In addition, we are in a kind of cosmic convergence of geopolitical and spiritual factors. Israel has a brief window of opportunity to destroy Iran’s nuclear production facilities, before Israel could be nuked. The importance of this window is amplified by the U.S. Presidential election.
There are many people who believe that the Israel of the Bible is not the same as the genetic line of the people who live in Israel today. In addition, they point out that that due to the secular nature of modern Israel, and the Rothschild connection to giving Israel the land, that it no longer has a right to the land. However, they do not understand the basis of the Covenant, God made with the physical descendants of Abraham, to give them the physical land of Israel.
The Covenant that God made with Abraham and his physical descendant, to give them the physical land of Israel, is an “Everlasting Covenant.” That means it is without end. Secondly, the Abrahamic Covenant is not contingent upon the performance of the Jews or the nation of Israel. To illustrate that, God “cut,” the Covenant, while Abraham was passed out, or in a trance on the ground. God passed the torches over Abraham’s body. The purpose of this action was to clearly demonstrate, the unilateral nature of the Abrahamic Covenant. In other words, it was given to Abraham, without his direct participation.
This is not to say that the Jews and Israel are not accountable to God for their sins. The history of the children of Israel, is the history of God giving the Jews, not because they were in anyway better than any other people, His laws, so that they would be a light to the world. They have failed God countless times and have been punished by God by going into captivity and being driven from the land of Israel. For example, the Mosaic and Abrahamic Covenant, show the cycle of Israel’s disobedience to God and their restoration.
When Israel’s Messiah came to the Jewish people, in the form of Christ, Israel as well as the Romans and other Gentile nations, rejected Christ. Jesus Christ prophetically told His disciples, while sitting on the Mount of Olives, with Herod’s Temple, behind them, that both Jerusalem and the Temple would be destroyed. In A.D. 70, the Roman General Titus, invaded Israel, and burned down Jerusalem and the Temple. Titus also sold the Jews into slavery and they were dispersed into all the nations of the world for over 2,000 years.
This is why the Jews did not have a homeland or Temple for over 2,000 years. However, numerous Old Testament prophets predicted that in the last days, the Jews would return to Israel. This happened in 1948, when Israel was reformed as a nation. But, the ancient prophets like Zechariah, Ezekiel and others predicted that in the last days, the Jews would be a “cup of trembling,” and hated, along with being invaded in the last days. Everything we see on the news regarding Israel, Iran, Russia and other nations are these ancient prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. In fact, in Ezekiel 38, we read about an alliance of Middle Eastern nations, led by Russian and Iran, invading Israel in the last days.
These prophecies as problematic for a lot of people because current and past economic alliances that Israel has made. I am aware of those problematic questions and have answers for them.
I have been researching, writing and speaking on this for over 30 years. As such a few Hollywood producers have met with me and are in the process of producing a film called “Chaos Reaction – Human Extinction,” based on my writing and have asked me to be on the on-camera prophecy expert. In this film, I am going to not only look at the Biblical prophets, but also look at the convergence of prophecies from Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, the Mayan Calendar, the Fatima visions, the Time Wave Zero Theory developed by Terrance McKenna and his studies on the I Ching. Massive monolithic monuments, many from Pre-flood and highly advanced civilizations built technological structures that served as star gate’s, such as Stonehenge, the Pyramids and the ancient Mayan and Incan ruins. There is an amazing statistical similarity from many ancient cultures, that all point to the general time period of 2012 and beyond. Even the former Confederate General and Freemason, Albert Pike predicted a World War III, in the Middle East, along with the science fiction writer H.G. Wells, who was the former head of British Intelligence, during World War I.
The world has now entered a period of massive acceleration, much of it engineered by powerful unseen influences, who are manipulating world events in order to bring in their New World Order. We must remember that when Nimrod built the Tower of Babel, he was creating the world’s first one world government, one world economic system and one world religion. Babylon is being rebuilt in our lifetime.
If you read the book of Revelation, the entire Babylonian system is going to come down in ruins. It is called “Mystery Babylon,” the Mother of Harlots.” Babylon is the city of man and Jerusalem is the city of God. Despite what you think about Israel or the Jews, there is something far larger going on. Jesus Christ, the Messiah is returning to Planet Earth. But, He is returning specifically to Jerusalem, from where He will rule Planet Earth. At His Second Coming, all the nation’s armies will attempt to attack Him, even to the extent of firing nuclear missiles at Him, because they may believe it is an alien invasion. The final battle in mankind’s history will be Armageddon, in Israel. This is not an accident!
All of life and human activity must be conducted in the light of the return of the Messiah to Jerusalem and the final conflict at Armageddon. Clearly, no one can claim to know the particular date. But, we do know based on events with Israel and the Middle East that the hour is drawing closer.
