Rumors of war!

Collage for MENA protests

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

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 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. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

“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?

  1. Thought provoking and quite alarming !!!! Its too difficult to type the same words “FANTABULOUS” “AWESOME” “AMAZING” for al ur posts.. so this applies to all ur previous n future articles 😛 Great job!!! Infact people have a notion that ministry is just preaching in churches or congregation. But spreading god’s word by any means and also following it by every means is doing his ministry… !!! U r into it !! Keep up this momentum always. God bless u 🙂

  2. Bible is the only book in the globe, which speaks about the facts. As you have rightly mentioned about the prophecies which are spoken by different prophets and which were fulfilled. The most important which I liked about this blog is the observation. Your observation is very interesting and has relevant facts. God bless you so much.

    1. We are all about our business – that is doing God’s will…. With much prayer I started this blog and with utter submission to God! I don’t write unless the Holy Spirit enables me write.. Infact there was an article that i wrote about “Twice and Never” and every time i pressed update button it never got updated… And I kept doing it – and finally after some 20 attempts it got submitted. Later one day, God was telling me that he dint want to me to publish it because its not important because it was more about “ME”… And instantly i deleted that post! Its his grace and I’m his servant and I want to stand firm till the end! Keep me in your prayers!

      1. God uses every one in some or the other way. Everybody is blessed with some talent to praise and spread his holy name. You are bleseed to write such amazing blogs, its only his blessing on you. Infact a useless vessel like me is useful in sight of god. So keep up the same spirit, i will for sure remember you and your family in my prayers. Keep writing such blogs and be blessing for many. God bless you abunduntly for such amazing work.
