War in Israel?
With so many prophets proclaiming the coming war in Israel, I am exercised. I MUST take this opportunity to bring a word of encouragement. Trust in the written word of God, it cannot fail. Let us dig a little deeper for a fuller picture that eclipses all of the doom and gloom.
Here are my thoughts on possibly an even wider conflict than the miserable Syrian war according to Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.
Now with President elect Trump coming into office on January 20th 2017, he will surely have to address the situation in Syria.
Putin has a “hook in his jaw” just as it is written by Ezekiel. He just cannot stay out of the Middle East, whether he is wanted or not!
His wicked plans and shrewd manuevers are unfolding like a chess game. He is a very strong adversary working all over the earth.
There has to be a confrontation IF, he, President elect Trump will make good on his campaign promise to “destroy ISIS swiftly in Syria and Iraq. World opinion due to the tragic situation in Aleppo will mitigate this. Meanwhile militarily, Putin has propped up the Assad regime along with Iran’s backing, known in history as Persia. These countries are on a collision course with the West.
Iran and Russian harbor hatred towards Israel, see Ezekiel 38. “Gog comes down to take a plunder and a booty or spoil” (perhaps huge natural gas reserves in Israel). Ezekiel 39:3 is very clear. It says, God Himself will “knock the bow (missiles) out of Gog’s hand” by incredibly powerful natural forces. Could this be the armies from the north, including Russian & Iranian men and missile? Lebanon and Syria will be neutralized, Israel will live! Am Israel Hai!
Putin is the major threat at the moment. Also, PRAY for President elect Trump to resist any aggressive moves in Cuba. Remember the Soviet’s 1960 attempt to plant Nuclear weapons 90 kilometers from America in Cuba’s Bay of Pigs? This previous strategy cannot be repeated. It is high time for Biblical principles to be employed by the White House such as …“resist the enemy and he will flee from you.” I believe the LORD God of Israel is looking into the affairs of the nations to bring glory to HIS Name!
Our work is to BELIEVE God’s Word. We all must lay aside our criticisms and jugements and PRAY for President elect Trump. This man is richer than all 44 preceding US Presidents combined, yet he has chosen to take a salary of US $1.00 and give his Presidential salary to charity. He has placed more Christian advisors around him that ever before in American history. PRAY that these anointed men and women give him the divine strategies found in the Eternal Word of God. Let us look up and not faint. We are standing on the edge of the greatest revolution our world has ever seen. Let God be God and all men liars!
