For the last two weeks we have compared the nations and events of the Middle East today...To the End Time scenario described by Old and New Testament writings in Scriptures...And have found every seemingly needed piece of the puzzle to be in place for the events leading into the Seven Year Tribulation of the last Days!
With all of the alarming events occurring in the Middle East recently, many Christians are questioning how it may all may fit into the "End Times" scenario of Scriptures. And as we said last week, even though the current situation is a far cry from the Last Battle of Armageddon spoken of in prophecy, these current events and many, many others do come together to create an amazingly perfect scenario for the Stage to be set just as Scriptures predict preceding a battle that will begin near the start of the Tribulation—therefore near Christ’s Return.
In this second part of Pastor Doug's series on the what the Middle East should look like in End Times, Doug looks at how the countries around Israel should be aligned and how that compares to the current geopolitical situation in the region today.
Many of us have heard of predictions about End Times and people pointing to current events. In this message Pastor Doug begins a series focusing on exactly what God's Word says about the state the Middle East will be in at that time starting with the centerpiece of God's plan: Israel.
Many times in the past, we have seen people predicting that the end of time was coming... And obviously we are still here! And it tends to discredit the whole idea to honest believers...Making them leery and passive when they hear yet another person saying the same thing...But these instances in the past, have been because people saw one or two major events which seemed related to the End Time Scenario in their time...And they would try to build the Events spoken of in Scriptures around the events happening...And just because one portion of the many events and scenarios of Biblical Prophecy seems to be occurring...The rest of those many and detailed prophecies cannot be ignored or changed to fit the Times...
What are some things that we know could happen to us in life, yet we always think it will happens to someone else... Then, BAM?!
And in that, "Oh-my-gosh!" moment, everything changes instantly...You are in a totally different circumstance than you were moments ago...And there is no going back now! Well, not meaning to sound morbid, but how many people in this room are going to die someday? Duhh... All. And do you realize that just as easily and quickly as some have had an unexpected event or accident... Some of us will leave this earth? In an instant, that thing we thought would never come, IS HERE! And everything has changed... And there is no going back!
Last week we took a good look at who we are in Christ! Not in the eyes of the world... Not in the eyes of parents, friends, spouses, or even in our own eyes...But in Christ! And we found that many, even MOST of us... Have been held in a prison of false Self-Identity for much of our lives! Not seeing ourselves as we should...Therefore, not seeing and loving others as we should...And especially, not feeling worthy or accepted to be close to Christ as we should!
