WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS US ABOUT THE FUTURE

Joseph had a dream and he told his brothers. They became very angry with him. He had another dream and they planned on killing him. I had a dream and will not share it. Have you ever had a dream that when telling others, they reacted negatively to it?

Genesis 37:5 – 9 – “Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said. Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”

September 17, 2001 was the beginning of America’s economic problems. The next big crash of the stock market was September 29, 2008. September 17, 2015 is the final 60 days that congress has to vote down the nuclear agreement John Kerry and President Obama has with Iran. We believe this will not happen and it will begin what Ezekiel says will be the war against Israel.

A war with Israel is described in chapters 38 and 39 of Ezekiel. We read in Ezekiel 39:2 – 4 – “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him…..I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.”

Russia leads Iran, Turkey, Libya, Ethiopia and parts of Eastern Europe. It is believed that Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria could be destroyed in this battle. Magog is identified as Russia and Meshech is Moscow and Tubal is Turkey.

Turkey belongs to NATO and has a military treaty with Israel. Turkey must line up with Russia and Iran for the battle to begin. We have witnessed Turkey turning on Israel when they assisted in the attempt to push through Israel’s blockade of Gaza and the Hamas.

We must keep in mind that this is Biblical interpretation and not everyone agrees. In fact, most of the world would not agree. Otherwise, nations would leave Israel alone. It is very clear that God is going to protect Israel and nations are going to try to destroy them. If this does not happen then the Bible has been very misleading and I can’t accept that. We also know this all happens after Israel becomes a nation as it did in 1948, over 1800 years without being a nation.

Also remember that Palestine has never been a nation. They last resided in Lebanon and they were kicked out in 1920 and came to Israel’s covenant land. The only claim the Palestinians has is that they got there 28 years before Israel was mandated as a legitimate country, but Palestine had never been a legal nation. They were just descendants of Esau, Jacob’s brother. Esau was a son of Isaac whose father was Abraham. From Jacob came the twelve tribes of Israel. To some degree Ishmael, Abrahams illegitimate son and Esau, Jacob’s brother, were descendents of Abraham and are fighting against their relatives that came from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This makes Jerusalem and the covenant land a vital part of each family’s heritage. But other nations having a large population of Muslins want to destroy Israel to prove that Mohammed and the Koran is correct and Jesus and our Bible are not. Muslims believe destroying Israel will allow the twelfth Imam, their messiah Mahdi, to come back and rule the earth. Whereas, we believe Jesus will come back to rule the world for a 1000 years. Then there will come a new heaven and the new earth. Our present earth will be destroyed by fire according to II Peter 3:7 – “By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men.”

For years many have said something had to happen to the U.S., either weakened or losing its super-power status. We have seen President Obama and his administration and Pope Francis become pro-Palestine and anti-Israel. It is believed, regardless what happens to Israel; they will find a way to not support them. We are then told that a poll showed many Jewish people in America who support Obama agreeing that the United States does not need to support Israel when they are attacked.

During this war, God will make Himself known. Ezekiel 38:23 – “And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.” It is starting to make sense. But if this is true, we are very close to the end or future presidents will also agree to no longer support Israel. Or, our national debt could be so great that we would be unable to finance any support for Israel. It is projected to reach $20 trillion shortly and that could financially cripple us. Are we getting close to a stock market crash? Should we not be praying for America?

God waits until the Armies led by Russia touch covenant land before He stops them. That is when prophecy states He must stop them to keep His promise to Israel. The destruction takes place on the Mountains of Israel. Ezekiel 38:21 – 22 – “I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him.”

When this happens, Israel and other nations will realize who is God. Even Muslims will recognize that they have been worshipping the wrong God. This is when we will see the great spiritual revival giving everyone one a last chance to accept Christ as their Savior.

Peace comes over Israel for a period of time and this could be right away or in a number of years. Then the final war begins, the war of Armageddon. The Bible says, in these days, many will be scoffers and not believe any of this is likely. In fact, many believe that accepting the nuclear agreement with Iran will create peace throughout the world. The Bible also says there will be many false prophets during these times. Who will you believe: False prophets or the Bible?
