Peace Treaty Set Up…

And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week [seven years]. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing or pinnacle of abominations [shall come] one who makes desolate, until the full determined end is poured out on the desolator.

Daniel 9:27 AMP

 

Be aware, there are several things that must happen BEFORE a treaty can come about.  Let’s look at this week’s headlines (June 5, 2016).

We begin with Israel having utterly defeated and conquered her neighboring enemies in a regional Middle East war prophesied in Psalm 83 as well as Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 25:13-14, Jeremiah 49, Obadiah, Isaiah 17, Zephaniah 2:3-5. Israel will expand her borders and will no longer have a boot to her throat by her immediate neighbors.

I agree with Bill Salus of Prophecy Depot Ministries, and the thesis of his books about this war, Isralestine and Psalm 83.  His thesis is that Psalm 83 describes an end time war between Israel and the nations that share a common border with it, namely Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and the Gaza Strip.  It is precisely Israel’s overwhelming victory in this regional war that motivates the Arab world to seek Russian assistance, the Gog and Magog war.

Asaph {the seer prophet who wrote this Psalm} calls the very first member {of the confederacy} the “tents of Edom.” Now, biblically speaking, that would even be military encampments or refugee conditions. The Edomites the descendants of Esau have ethnical representation in the Palestinians today. I do believe what Asaph was trying to tell us which became a reality in 1948 would be a Palestinian refugee crisis and they would play a part in this overall confederacy. I think the Palestinians find their face in prophecy today.

Following very closely on the heels of this, a huge coalition of forces lead by Russia and Iran will converge on Israel and will be destroyed not by any military force but by God alone in what is known as the war of Tribulation.

Gog and Magog  This is the key event that sets the stage for the seven year Tribulation.

The Gog-Magog Battle is set between a massive coalition of nations descended from Noah’s sons Japheth and Ham against Israel (Gen. 10:2-7). The nations are from the territories of ancient Rosh, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Cush, Gomer and Beth-togarmah. Their leader is called “Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal” (Ezek. 38:2-3). The battlefield is on the “mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate” (Ezek. 38:8). The purpose of the invasion is to “plunder and loot” and destroy the people of Israel (Ezek. 38:12, 16).

Meanwhile, back in the 21st century, the awesomeness of God is being revealed in the most unlikely places…

The evangelization of Persia

Hormoz Shariat, the man that Bible prophecy expert Joel Rosenberg calls, “The Billy Graham of Iran,” spoke with Bill Salus to discuss the supernatural conversion of Iran into a Christian nation.

Hormoz Shariat is a highly educated, American Iranian. He formerly lived in Iran until the Iranian revolution of 1979. Fortunately, he had left Iran just prior to the revolution to attend an American university. He became a Christian while living in America. As a child, he was raised in a Muslim household, and prior to coming to America, he was among the throngs of Iranian Muslims that would shout, “Death to Israel, the little Satan, and Death to America, the great Satan.”

Conversely, now as a Christian that is on fire for Christ, he utilizes satellite TV as a means to spread the gospel into the Middle East. Hormoz is the founder of Iran Alive Ministries. He penetrates through the ethereal airways over the turban wrapped heads of the Islamic Mullahs, and preaches the gospel into the Farsi speaking countries of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. It is probably no coincidence that these three countries rank among the top ten of the fastest growing evangelical populations in the world. Iran is #1, Afghanistan #2, and Tajikistan #10.

If the LORD God can move the heart of Sunni Islam in the middle of her home turf, is there nothing He can’t do in our day?  God’s purposes will not be thwarted.  So CHIN UP, brothers and sisters—our Savior comes and does not delay; He is coming soon!
