What Clues Does Bible Prophecy Give About What’s Next for Israel?

Part 2 of a SPECIAL REPORT on, Is This the End of the World?

As the conflict in Israel concludes its fifth day, I want to walk through some events that happened over the past few years that led to this war. But, before going there, let’s talk about why many individuals feel this conflict relates to events predicted over two thousand years ago.

What’s Special About Israel?

Israel is “ground zero” for all Bible prophecy. The entirety of the Old Testament focuses on the formation, development, eventual fall, and preservation of the Nation of Israel.

Ethnic Israel could have been wiped off the face of the planet many times; they were held as slaves in Egypt in ancient times, detained in captivity in Babylon in 586 B.C., driven from Rome in 70 A.D., persecuted and expelled from Europe during the Spanish Inquisition in the 1400s, and later 6 million Jews were mass murdered during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany in the 1940s.

At each juncture in history, the Jewish people faced annihilation. But, in each instance, the Lord miraculously protected and preserved His people, Israel.

The Messiah of the world came out of Israel, and he is going to return to Israel. But when he comes back again, it will not be as a helpless child born to a poor family but as a military commander riding a white horse to signify war.

When He finally returns, The Lord will come to the aid of outnumbered Israel—an entire nation the size of the state of New Jersey—and defeat her enemies in an epic battle taking place on the plains of Megiddo, a hilltop strategically located on a main road built by the Romans to connect Egypt with Damascus, Syria. This will be the battle famously known as Armageddon.

During the final struggle, the Lord will judge the various nations for how they treated Israel and attempted to “divide the land” that the God of Creation rightfully gave to his people, the Jewish nation.

Joel 3:1-2

 “In those days and at that time,
    when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather all nations
    and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
There, I will put them on trial
    for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
because they scattered my people among the nations
    and divided up my land.

As I said in my last post, we’re not here yet. Before this world-ending conflict, the Antichrist will negotiate a 7-year peace deal with Israel. This hasn’t happened yet, but be on the lookout for nations, organizations (U.N., I.A.E.A.?), or other entities that promise peace to Israel in exchange for a cease-fire—which could come any day now!
