Is War Immenent?
The Syrians have been reported to have reached into their arsonal and have got out their WMDs. This has got Israel on edge.
Meanwhile in the Persian Gulf. The Iranians have threatened to shut off the straight of Harmuze. If they do that then we are looking at not being able to get any of the oil from Iran, Kuwait and most of Saudi Arabia cannot get out. This is in response to the western nations imposing sanctions against them. They have oil that no one is buying. This oil is floating around Indian Ocean with no one to buy it. They have made sales to India but no one else is buying.
In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood has placed one of their own in the presidents office. This has got Israel on edge. Since 1978, they have had a peace agreement with Egypt. The Brotherhood has not agreed to keep it. The Military of Egypt is not necessarily on board with the agenda of the new regime.
How does all this relate to Bible prophecy? We know that in the Battle of Gog and Magog, a list of Nations including Persia and Magog are listed. It does not include Egypt and Syria. In Psalm 83, Those nations are listed. The debate currently gong on in the prophetic community is if these two events are separate and by how far. One thing that we do know there is an interesting reference to the rapture in Psalm 83.
Psa 83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
Who are the hidden ones? I would say that the rapture has already happened when this event takes place. If you don't think so, look at Isaiah
Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
So if Psalm 83 is the first event, then the rapture has to come first. Does that mean the rapture is soon. Looks like it. If the rapture happens, then America will be left the weakest from the event. So at that point, the attacks will come upon America. Israel will win that battle and it looks like peace. At that point, Russia, Persia and It's allies will attack Israel. They will also attack America. You don't think so. Then Answer who lives "carelessly in the Isles".
Eze 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
As the pretrib Activist, I would advise against any attacks. But knowing is coming I will tell each of the readers that it is time to examine yourself to see if you are in the faith. If war is imminent, then the rapture is even more imminent.
So for now keep looking up, for your redemption is drawing neigh.
