World War in the Middle East

Commentary By:  Gordon King

The evil and violence in the Middle East is escalating with no end in sight.  The wars keep changing and growing.  Right when you think “what else could happen?”, something else happens!

We’ve seen many of the countries in the region fall to the “Arab Spring”, Syria pulled into a civil war, Hamas attacking Israel with thousands of rockets and Israel responding with military action.  I haven’t even mentioned the fighting in Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, or many other countries in Africa!  And let us not forget about the fighting in Ukraine with Russia. 

An Islamic State gunman makes sure the prisoners are dead by shooting them once again.

Now we see the Islamic State growing, spreading like a cancer, killing, murdering, executing, torturing, and committing heinous acts of violence against innocent people.

The Islamic State’s victims are carted to their death.

The world is finally waking up to the violence and atrocities committed by the IS.  President Obama and John Kerry pledge to unite the world in a fight against them.  A little too late if you ask me. 

The world is being pulled into war in the Middle East.  Sounds a bit like bible prophecy doesn’t it?  So much focus on the Middle East, and now the world at war in the Middle East!  Little by little, the evil, violence and war is accelerating into something much bigger.

The world is being pulled like a magnet into the center of it all.  An unseen force leading the masses towards the center of the world, Jerusalem!  A burdensome stone.

Keep your eyes focused on the Middle East, pray for the lost to come to repentance and salvation through Jesus Christ!  Pray for Israels protection, peace, and guidance.  Pray for the protection and wisdom of Christians throughout the world.  Our time is short, bible prophecy is quickly unfolding.

God Bless my friends, until next time!

  1. Amen. In Jesus’ name. How true..
    “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.” Eph.5:6 God’s word is truthful and sure for anyone who has an ear to listen to the voice of prophesy. It might tardy (because of prayers from believers) but eventually gets fulfilled.
    My question is: what’s the point of going to war with Syria? especially now, where were we when they needed us the most a year ago…or when the Arab Spring was just getting started 3 years ago? Russia and China are on our backs if we do anything.. The countries are at odds with each other and the world is on fire. It most definitely too little too late.
    Question #2: We’re sending advisers to do what exactly? How many have we sent already? What have we gain from it all? Everything is being done under closed doors who knows what the real reasons are… Countries are bailing out especially our allies who want no part. Yet our borders are still open for anyone to enter. Why aren’t we securing the point of entry to our own survival?
    Are we really promoting freedom? Seems to me it’s being taken away…
    More chaos is coming. I feel WW3 is on the horizon and mother nature is unleashing her fury. Time is ticking. The deception is mind boggling, Gordan. America was born out of a need to escape tyranny and persecution; how far we have fallen… There is no where to go (but outer space)… Nothing is new under the sun! We’re on God’s timetable. Yes the world is being pulled to the Middle East as Scripture’s prophecies.
    God hears prayers, we must get back to the word with sincerity of heart and on our knees with repentance. “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” Eph. 5:1 We must put on the armor of God for things ARE snowballing, and an eye on the MiddleEast to know the seasons… Jesus IS coming! Do not loose faith! God Bless.

  2. SweetJava, There is one thing in your comment you have wrong. There is no mother nature controlling the weather that is only a fictional female made up in the last 200 years. The one controlling the weather conditions is “The Heavenly Father” GOD Almighty. What I am thinking myself that we may be very near is what is described in what will lead to the 7 year peace treaty created by the Anti- Christ because it says in Revelation that he will rise up stopping those other countries from destroying Israel and promising 7 years of peace and then at the half way point go against his own word and desecrate the Jewish Temple and force that evil mark on all who want to buy or sell. I have a strong feeling we may be just around the corner from the Tribulation’s start.

  3. My prayers go out to you Gordan, to be back on your feet and healthy. May the Good Lord heal your ailment(s) and make you stronger with each passing day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  4. Hi Ted McAlister, thank you for your observation. My apologies that the wrong impression was taken from me using the term, it was not my intent, only mention it as a phrase not that she is an actual persona of the weather. I too believe Our Heavenly Father is in control of everything including the weather. I will refrain from using the term in future and giving the wrong idea.
    That being said, I too, believe we are on the brink of major changes happening worldwide, especially in the Middle East,and now with this coalition getting momentum, for me it means WW3 is not too far off. We must prepare ourselves. In Psalm 83-the nations of this region will try but God will show them whose in charge. Everything is in place according to His timetable. Time is indeed short and ticking.
    All this is making it easier for a World leader to come into the scene and make further demands on our liberties (and not just in the US.) Everything is aligning itself for the beast to take charge. The beast in my opinion is the world government, with its co-hort the world religion. We need to pay attention to the Middle East, like Gordan has keenly stated. I also believe the signing of this peace (in word only) treaty is the signal for the Tribulation to begin and hence the count down begins for believers to know the seasons of His visitation… For “when you see all these things know He is near.” Matt.24:33
    A lot of fearsome horror lay ahead. We’re witnessing the prophesies of Rev. 6, the horsemen are running a muck: Conquering, conflicts on earth, scarcity of food and water, widespread diseases and death, the cry of the martyrs, cosmic disturbances. All of it draws us nearer to the coming of our Lord. We must be diligent in our faith and a firm reliance in God. God’s calling is greater now then ever, for we ARE living in the end times! Jesus is our only way to truth and life eternal, with sincerity of heart and prayer. God Bless.
