The world is at odds with itself, tensions around the globe are increasing faster and faster, as nuclear threats loom not only from rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran, but also from Russia. Not since the cold war have tensions between the United States of America and Russia been so high, in fact it would seem that we are back to a cold war status.
While stand offs between both super powers in the Middle East are heating up, so is the threat of war upon the tiny nation of Israel. Not only has Russia moved into Syria and seems to have taken control of that war-torn country, but the nation of Iran seems to as well!
Iran is determined to see the total annihilation of Israel, and with each passing day it is positioning itself into making that determination a reality. Iran also has military troops in Syria, as well as missiles, missiles aimed at Israel, and missiles being shipped to Hezbollah, a faction of Iran in Lebanon.
While Russia is a nuclear power house, it is also a country desperately hurting financially, and as such is being setup at this very moment for a confrontation with Israel, a tiny country with a wealth of natural resources. If you ask me, the Ezekiel 38 War could happen at any moment! The players are in place and the time is ripe. Whatever the time, it couldn’t be far off.
Venezuela is a country led by a Socialist dictator, it is in the midst of falling to pieces. What was once a very wealthy country in South America, is now a country on the brink of collapse!
Tensions in the world are very high, and it would seem that most of the world just continues on, as if all is normal. Are we not told by Jesus Himself that the days just before His return would be like the days of Noah, that even though the times were evil, people continued on as if everything were normal?! And say it isn’t so now.
Stay strong in the Lord, keep the faith, be encouraged by knowing that our redemption is near, even at the door!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
