What does this most recent conflict in Israel mean?

CNN reported that rockets have landed near two of Israel’s most populated cities.  The fighting since Wednesday has let 24 dead and 270 wounded.   The attack was from Hamas militants.  Hamas is a political party that governs the Gaza Strip.  Wikipedia stated that their “1988 charter calls for the replacement of Israel and the Palestinian Territories with an Islamic Palestinian state.”

What does this recent event mean?  There has never been any rest in the Middle-East since I have been alive.  I am sure some will observe what is going on and think nothing of it.  However, this conflict has been escalating and now that the United States has been lukewarm as to their involvement the stage is being seemingly set for the Antichrist to rise up and offer a false peace.

Daniel 9:27 says, “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week…”  The he goes back to verse 26 and the phrase “And the people of prince who is to come…”  The prince to come is the Antichrist or The Beast.  The first 3 1/2 years this covenant will be honored but then he will break it.  Also please remember that the Tribulation will not begin until the covenant is signed.  The Rapture can happen at any moment.

What does this mean for us today?  This conflict is the beginning of a possible all out war.  I would not be surprised at all if Russia were to get involved.   I make that assumption because Russia has been helping Iran and for some reason they seem to be persistent in wanting to have some sort of stake in the Middle-East.  Why?  Probably because they want to be in on the oil that is plentiful in the Middle-East.  Is Russia Gog and Magog?  I lean towards that view.  For a time it looked like Russia would never be a world power any more in the ’90s, however, now they are beginning to assert themselves once again.  Even with all that is happening in the Middle-East, the next thing on God’s timetable is the Rapture.  As Revelation says, “Behold I come quickly…”  May our Lord come back for us quickly.

  1. Your right about the time table Dan
    One question are we in a age of judgement or Grace ..Dan?

    Or does the judgement of God begin as the great tribulation starts if after the rapture or during

    Should believers be worried or simply keep praying sharing , encouraging each other~ what do you say Dan?

      We are as Luke 21:24 tells us that we are living in the times of the Gentiles. I believe we are still in a day and age of Grace. Or The Church Age if you will. The Church Age ends with the Rapture of believers (Ephesians 4:30b). Believers will be kept from the hour of trial which will come upon the whole world (Revelation 3:10). God does disciplines those He loves (Hebrews 12:9). 1 Peter 4:17 tells us that judgment should start with us, meaning we should evaluate our lives and make corrections. Noah’s flood is a great picture of how the Rapture and Tribulation will play out. Noah warned the people, however, no one listened. The Ark saved Noah from the judgement of God. Matthew 24:36-38 makes reference of it. I believe God will save believers before the Tribulation.

      The people in the Church at Thessalonica were scared that they had missed the Rapture. Paul told them, “to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come” (1 Thess. 1:10). I believe that wrath to come is the Tribulation. I don’t believe we are in an age of judgment per se as we are in an age of opportunity to Go and Tell. I hope that answers your question. Love the questions.

  2. Great stuff and praise God!!
    Thanks Dan.
