A coming Nuclear War In The Middle East?
Many people will dismiss this post because they have convinced themselves that God is dead. This is too bad. I pray there is still time left for them to realize the error of their ways, to repent and to seek God and His Son. God is real, He lives, and so does His Son. And it is only by accepting Christ as our personal Savior and by placing our trust in Him that we can be saved from ourselves. God is good and because He loves us and wants us to know Him, He has left signs for us to discover. It is by coming to understand these signs that we discover and come to understand what humans can know and understand about God. One of these signs is prophecy. It is through prophecy that we can be sure Jesus is the Messiah.
Now, I don’t make any claims to being any sort of ‘expert’ on Scripture or Biblical prophecy. I am no better than anyone else who studies God’s word: I depend on His Grace and the Holy Spirit to guide me and give me understanding. But I do know this: there are some prophecies that – if nothing else – should have us paying closer attention to the things of God and God’s kingdom. For example:
New International Version (NIV)
A Prophecy Against Damascus
17 A prophecy against Damascus:
“See, Damascus will no longer be a city
but will become a heap of ruins.
2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted
and left to flocks, which will lie down,
with no one to make them afraid.
3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
and royal power from Damascus;
the remnant of Aram will be
like the glory of the Israelites,”
declares the Lord Almighty.
