I have copied below an exchange I had recently with a brother in Jesus and hope it is a blessing to you. It concerns the letter I sent out about the coming “interfaith dialogue” proposed by the King of Saudi Arabia. Imagine Jews, Christians, and Muslims all sitting at the same table trying to establish world peace and security before a nuclear bomb destroys some city, setting off a nuclear World War III. The President and Pope must be delighted as are Barrack Obama and John McCain.
I am stunned, but not surprised, how this “dominion and ecumenical” religious spirit has intensified in all religions, especially among the diverse groups among Christendom. In Christendom, we have a so-called dominion revival in Florida led by Todd Bentley, urging all Charismatic and Pentecostal followers to join him in saving the world from destruction. We have Rick Warren leading the way in calling for conservative Evangelicals and Fundamentalists to join in the great movement of the Emerging Church as it unites with governments and religions to establish peace and safety among the nations.
Will all of these men be successful as they reach out to the exhausted masses who long for world peace? Are we seeing the rise of the “final” form of Babylon the Great with all of its political-religious-economic institutions coming together at the same time? Many years ago I learned from the scriptures that all of mankind will have to answer one question when God’s final judgment upon the nations begins. Will you look for and trust in the bodily second coming of Jesus Christ or will you follow the false Christ who comes in his place?
Your eternal friend,
I don’t know how you got my e-mail address sent to my Gmail acct. For many years I’ve watched Jack Van Impe talk about the prophecy of when Magog (Russia) and a collection of Muslim countries attack Israel. No one has ever replied to my query regarding this scenario. My question involves this…the “big brother” “defender” of Israel has always been the superpower, United States. Then, how is it that Magog and these other countries feel they can jump on Israel?
I think something good or something bad has happened to our USA. The GOOD would be that the Rapture has occurred, 35-40% of the population of the U.S. has gone to heaven and only the brutes, the pagans, the lost are left. The USA would immediately become a 3rd world weak state unable to defend herself much less Israel. The BAD would be this: nuclear devices have exploded in some of our major cities. Millions have died and many will die indirectly. Some areas of the country will be contaminated for 100’s of years. These are the only reasons I can think of why America can no longer fight Israel’s enemies.
I am struck by recent news reports how many of the rich elite are jumping ship and moving to other countries and their businesses as well, as if they know something. I understand that VP Chaney has already purchased a multimillion dollar home in Dubai and that President Bush and family have bought a huge plantation in South America. If these reports are true, I believe it would be the first time a president and a vice president would no longer live in their own country. I would appreciate any comments you might have.
Yours in Christ….
Thank you so much for your response. I’m sorry but I don’t keep track of every website that I visit, so I can’t tell you which site had your name. I am retired and a writer, so I spend a lot of time on the internet researching material, especially in the religious-political-military arena. That’s how I saw your name.
Many Christians who understand the basic timeline of prophecy ask the same questions you have concerning America and Israel. How is it possible for Russia to attack Israel when America has promised to defend her? What could cause America not to come to Israel’s defense? Your answers are the ones given by most and for a time in my early walk with our Lord Jesus I felt the same way. But the correct answer is found in the ministry of the two Jewish prophets in Jerusalem found in Revelation 11.
For after the American President signs the Peace Covenant beginning the seven years known as the 70th week of Daniel, Israel and America are united as one, and all the nations are at peace. So much so that many begin to call the President the Messiah. But when the two Jewish prophets in Jerusalem begin their ministry things change, for they clearly, boldly, and with all the power of the Holy Spirit, call the President the Antichrist (Beast, Little Horn, King of Babylon) and the Pope his False Prophet.
Americans and Europeans will be enraged at these two men of God and begin to despise all Jews for what they have said. So, by the time of the Russian invasion towards the middle of the 70th week, there will be no desire to defend Israel anymore, thereby allowing the Russians and their Moslem friends to overwhelm Israel before entering World War III which began when the Russian/Islamic confederacy invaded. Then God’s angels destroy Russia’s invading armies to stop the nuclear annihilation of mankind. All of this and more I have documented in my articles “Babylon’s Final Fall” and The Judgment Chronicles” both posted on our website.
If you are interested in reading my work and knowing more about me, the “About the Author” section on my site details my background. I am a Christian who wholeheartedly believes that Jesus Christ is alive and returning soon to take back the government of all the nations. There is coming a day when the Lord will return in judgment and then imprison the fallen angels who are temporarily allowed by God to rule the nations because of the Adamic sin nature of all men. Until that day of judgment we are to call all men to repentance, to love and offer forgiveness to the worst of our enemies, even those who wish us dead.
My purpose is not to intrude or offend, but to humbly ask people if they are ready for his return. It is great news that you are “in” Christ and ready. I hope my online book and articles help you in your study of the Bible and the person of Jesus Christ, who alone, is the final firm foundation of our faith. See you in Heaven my new friend.
