I’m sure you can connect to what I’m going to talk about…. Bible is filled with prophecies and is well known for it being alive through the ages! Well, a lot has been already said by various preachers regarding the unrest and Middle East! I’m not theologically sound to make a thesis but this is my observation!
To date, rulers have been forced from power in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen; civil uprisings have erupted in Bahrain and Syria;major protests have broken out in Algeria, Iraq,Jordan,Kuwait,Morocco, and Sudan;and minor protests have occurred in Mauritania, Oman,Saudi Arabia,Djibouti, and Western Sahara
Media uses the term “Arab Spring” to define the revolutionary wave of both non violent and violent demonstrations / protests / riots / civil wars in the Arab world that began on December 2010
I definitely know this is the fulfillment of biblical prophecies, without getting into the details about the war I would want to focus on what Jesus said in Matthew 24:4-14
4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
The passage is self explanatory but just a few reflections from my side –
1) Its definitely true that we are hearing about wars and rumors of wars! And we should know that it is just the beginning of all the signs to come of the end of age
2) We will pass worse situations and people will fall away from the faith, but a caution so clear – THE ONE WHO STANDS FIRM TILL THE END WILL BE SAVED
3)Gospel of the kingdom has to be preached to the whole world – Whats our part?
