I was at a camp when I heard about the war between Israel and Hamas.  This skirmish should come as no surprise to believers because the conflict is written in the Bible.  The unrest will continue despite President Obama’s best efforts.  The peace will only happen albeit temporarily when the Beast (of Revelation) or King of the North (Daniel 11) strikes a covenant.  This covenant will assure the world of a false peace and will signal the start of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:23-24).  While the US plays a major role today in the peace talks it will soon find itself on the outside looking in.  Someone new will step in and be able to do what no other nation could do.

This individual will use his new found fame to capture the attention of the world.  The Tribulation will be a turbulent time to say the least.  However, the Beast will grow in popularity until all the world recognizes him and worships him.  The ironic part is the message that the new atheism espouses about the end of Faith.  I have been amazed by how they evolutionist and humanist alike can speak of the end of God with confidence and yet ignore what is happening right before their eyes.  Say what you will, disagree with me but there is an unrest in the Middle East and in Russia, that should make the world take note and pause.  As the old saying goes, “There are no atheist in foxholes.”  Everyone believes or exercises faith in something.  Now that faith may be in science.  Those who exercise their faith in science feel comfortable because they believe they have the facts or at least smarter people in their corner.  The god of atheism is the god called self.  Or as Richard Dawkins might put it, “The selfish Gene.”  Nevertheless, despite this new atheism the world will exercise faith and put that faith in the Beast of Revelation.  It will be a fatal mistake.

When will all these events take place?  They are beginning to happen, but the next event on God’s time table is the Rapture of His church (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).  Afterwards the covenant with Israel will be signed.

What do we do now?  Put your faith in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47).  You do not need to join a church or get baptized in order to be saved.  You simply need to believe in the Son (Acts 16:30-31).
