Bible Prophecy Update       3/3/23

May 14, 1948, this is the date of the rebirth of Israel—the date many Bible Prophecy scholars believe started the latter days of the end times. A date that started a countdown clock that would include many Biblical prophecies coming to pass. (Check out this link if you are interested in what these prophecies include.) So, as a born‐again believer in Jesus, what are we watching for? What are we waiting to see?

One event would be the line‐up of the Russian invasion of Israel—this happens after the Rapture. If this event happens after the Rapture, then why are we watching now? When we see the line‐up of events coming to fulfillment, then we know our redemption is near. Remember, Jesus is coming back for those who are waiting and watching for Him‐ref Heb 9:27,28.

The war in Ukraine is of particular interest. The Scriptures indicate that at least part, if not all of Ukraine aligns itself with Magog in the invasion of Israel. It never says it is part of Magog—it only partakes, along with other nation, in the invasion. (Click here to see our blog of 2/12/20, What Is Really Important To Look For Regarding Bible Prophecy? to see what other countries the Bible says will be involved.) It is interesting to note that some political scientist do not believe that President Putin desires to conquer the Ukrainian territory—he only desires to position the Ukrainian government back to leaning toward Russia, instead of the West. This would fit perfectly with Bible Prophecy.

A second interesting event has been the sanctions against Russia by the U.S., U.K. and EU. These sanctions have help create a dismal Russian economy along with crushing financial woos for many of President Putin′s closest friends and supporters. The sanctions, along with natural disasters in and around Russia, have created difficulties for the Russian people. There are still those countries who are part of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) that trade with Russia. They include Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. These countries have created a single market that also trades with China. In turn, China compliments the deal by sending Chinese companies to build roads, railways, fiber‐optic cables, and other hard infrastructure throughout the Eurasian super continent.

Due to the sanctions, Russia has also found an interested country to buy some air craft. In a report from the Jerusalem Post, date February 25, 2023, entitled, Russia′s fighter jet deal with Iran is a sign of weakness‐analysis, brings forth some interesting facts. Not only is Russia trying to create some revenue, but this move actually is enabling Iran′s air force, if the deal goes through, to expand their range around the Middle‐East. It would also grant a bombing capability—setting them in a better position to attack Israel. As the Americans are very confident about their plan of hindering Russia in Ukraine with sanctions, these same sanctions may actually enable Pandora′s box to be opened within the Middle‐East.

Another interesting turn of events is the hostilities between the U.S. and Russia. You may say, “These two countries have been at odds before—remember the Cold War? Remember the Cuban Missile Crisis?” Yes, but other events also needed to be in place just before the Rapture. That would include the coming forth of a one world government—with a one world leader—the Anti‐Christ. Back in the days of the cold war, the United States was far more united than today. Patriotism was at a high. Presently, according to a Pew study taken in July 2021, only a quarter of the adults they surveyed believe the U.S. is the greatest country. This can further be broken down by age and political parties. The conclusion of the article is most revealing. Pew reports, “Views of how the U.S. compares with other countries have long been divided along partisan lines—and the partisan gap, in views of the United States′ standing, today remains large. Today, about a third of Democrats say there are other countries that are better than the U.S.; while just 11% of Republicans say the same. And while 38% of Republicans say the U.S. stands above all other countries, just 12% of Democrats believe this. These shares are roughly on par with partisans′ views of the U.S. in 2019”. Another poll given in June 2021 by Axios/Momentive, revealed that, “Today, 18‐34 year‐olds are almost evenly split between those who view capitalism positively and those who view it negatively (49% vs. 46%). Two years ago, that margin was a gaping 20 points (58% vs. 38%)”. It is clear to see that very rapidly the desire, especially among the younger generations, to be included in a global union with others who have the same ideology, will be a reality in the not to distant future. Especially considering that many American leaders are globalist. But it is not only in the U.S.—it′s world wide. Let us not forget the World Economic Forum and their push to cause, The Great Reset. Some consider The Great Reset to be a vague proposal of ideas, while others consider the statements by the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab to be alarming. Check out this link for an argument in favor of Klaus Schwab and this linkthat raises concerns about his intentions.

Why is any of this of any importance regarding Bible Prophecy? Because this is the picture the Bible illustrates the world will look like just before the Rapture. Some people believe that throughout history there has been a golden thread woven that pertains to the superintending Providence of Almighty God. To Bible Prophecy student this is not just a belief but a fact.

Whatever your position regarding the soon return of Jesus, the most important issue is, are you ready. If you do not know a lot about what can be expected after the Rapture, please take time to read this extensive booklet written in a manner as if the Rapture and Tribulation had already happened—the reporter is looking back on the events that have just happened. It is based on Scripture and we do not believe it to be science fiction. It is entitled, BIBLE PROPHECY - The Tribulation In Detail, THE UNIVERSAL NEWS BROADCAST. (Note, when you get to the bottom of the page look for the link, "Universal News Broadcast-Part 2"). Do not wait until it is too late for you to do anything about your eternity.;;;'s Fighter Jet Deal With Iran;;;; Russia Can't Ignore NATO's Nukes;
