When I saw on the news Monday (February 10th) that Iran warships were coming close to the US coast I thought, “Is April Fool’s Day happening sooner this year?”  Fox News reported on their website that Iran is doing this because the US has deployed ships close to their borders.  This is a puzzling development.  Iran is obviously attempting to take a stand against the US.  The US appears reluctant to start a war.  Could this be the beginnings of a new cold war?  That is one possibility.

While the world pursues peace, there will always be a stumbling block for it until the Antichrist strikes a deal with Israel and the Muslim community in the Middle East.  What does this mean for people living today?  The time is now to put your faith in the one true God.  Things are only going to escalate more and more and more in the coming years.  The peace the world desperately wants will never be until the Lord returns (John 14:3).  The bible tells us that God sent His Son to the world to die for our sins and the sins of this whole world and all that is asked is not for us to join a church or give money or be a good person.  All that is asked for you to believe in Jesus for eternal (John 3:16 and 1 John 2:1,2).  You do not need to pray a prayer or become a Christian in order to believe in Jesus.  All you need to do is believe in Him (John 6:57).

We live in a day and age where it is peace and security which seems very attainable.  The war on Terror seems to be grinding to a halt.  However, things in the Middle-East have not grinded to a halt at all.  The unrest in the Middle-East, should cause us to look to see what God is doing or going to do.

In Revelation 6:2, the first seal judgment, a white horse is released the rider of this white horse is the Antichrist.  He is given a crown, which implies he is given rule and he rules by conquering.  Daniel 11:40-45 tells us that the King of the South attacks the King of the North.  The King of the South is identified as Egypt and the King of the North is the Antichrist.  It is hard to write who will be the major players in the Middle-East at the time of the end, however, Egypt will be force that the Antichrist will put down.

In an article by the Frenso Bee on June 28, 2012 Cal Thomas stated, “Iran continues its nuclear weapons program and threatens to wipe the “Zionist entity” off the map.  Russian President Vladimir Putin visits Israel and urges Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to attack Iran, to which Russia has been providing nuclear technology.”  The stage for an attack on Israel is already being set.  However, in the Tribulation the whole world is seen coming against Israel.  Iran and Russia’s friendship is setting the stage for Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38 and 39.  In the same article it was stated that Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s new president, was at a rally where a cleric stated that, “Our capital shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing.”   In looking at bible prophecy from Daniel 11 it could be possible that in the beginning of the Tribulation the Antichrist protects Israel from Egypt’s attack.  It is a thought that is worth looking into more.
