Prophecy Minute

it seems to be clear that Israel is ready to apply the "MAD" policy. If attacked, Israel would respond with mutually assured destruction.

These words indicate how close our world may be to the end time scenario that is found in Bible prophecy for the Jewish state.

An alignment of nations including nuclear powered Middle Eastern nations will join Iran in this attack only to be destroyed not by an Israeli nuclear weapon, but by Jesus Christ who will devastate these attackers.

God, not nuclear weapons, will protect His chosen people. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.


A Look at the Book



Ezekiel:
Retribution or Restoration

  Prophetic Prospective
Israel's national security adviser, Uzi Arad, says that Israel must have tremendously powerful weapons to ward off a nuclear attack or destroy an enemy that dares to launch an atomic strike against the Jewish state. Arad's comments appeared to allude to what is widely believed to be Israel's own nuclear arsenal and a standing Israeli policy of mutually assured destruction, a warning to other countries that could bring about their own devastation if they launch an attack.

The Israeli security advisor to the prime minister said that he feared that if Iran became a nuclear power, five or six other states in the Middle East would follow suit which he called a potential nightmare for Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A nuclear powered Israel in a face off with with a nuclear powered Iran and a number of other Middle Eastern states is a scenario that is real today but also a scenario found in Bible prophecy for a soon to be tomorrow.

As US President Obama and Russian President Medvedev recently discussed the reduction of their own nuclear arsenals, the Middle East is actively building up their potential nuclear capabilities. With the statement from the national security advisor in Israel, Uzi Arad, that the Jewish state must be nuclear powered to ward off a nuclear attack by Iran or a number of other Middle Eastern states, it seems to be clear that Israel is ready to apply the "MAD" policy. If attacked, Israel would respond with mutually assured destruction.

These words indicate how close our world may be to the end time scenario that is found in Bible prophecy for the Jewish state. The nation of Iran, mentioned in Ezekiel 38:5, when nuclear powered will follow through on their threat to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. An alignment of nations including nuclear powered Middle Eastern nations will join Iran in this attack only to be destroyed not by an Israeli nuclear weapon, but by Jesus Christ who will devastate these attackers (Ezekiel 38:18-23).

God, not nuclear weapons, will protect His chosen people. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

  Further Study
In Ezekiel 38:2, "Magog" is modern-day Russia, "Meshech and Tubal" along with "Gomer and Togarmah", in verse 6 is present-day Turkey. "Persia" in verse 5 is Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The other two names, "Ethiopia and Libya", are also nations that will join the "alignment" to attack Israel.

The "battle of Gog and Magog" is what the prophet is discussing with us in this passage. It is an "alignment of nations" that will come to Israel to destroy the Jewish State. In this passage we not only see the "who" and the "when", but we also see the "what", that which happens during the coming seven-year period of judgment known as the "Tribulation".

This passage in Ezekiel 38 and 39 helps us to understand why the nations of the Middle East and the Islamic world hate the Jews and want to destroy the Jewish State. These nations will continue to do what they can to eliminate Israel until this prophecy is fulfilled.
