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.
