Three “kingdoms” NOT discussed in the Bible.

“So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all the creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I (God) will call for a sword against him throughout the mountains, saith the Lord God: EVERY MAN’S SWORD SHALL BE AGAINST HIS BROTHER (capitals mine).”

Ezekiel 38:20-21

If you keep up with current events like the Hamas attack from the Gaza strip on Israel; the Hezbollah launching of precise, guided missiles from Lebanon; the missile launches by the Houthi rebels in Yemen towards Israel; the attacks on American bases in Syria and Iraq; the declaration by President of Turkey Recep Erdogan that Israel is a “terrorist” state; and yes, even the ongoing Ukranian/Russian War, you might wonder “What in the world is going on?”

Well, as you know, Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthi (et.al.) are all “proxies” of Iran. In other words, Iran is launching a full out assault on Israel, not directly, but by groups that they have organized, funded and guided to do their bidding. Why would Iran do this? Of course, for years we have heard the ayatollah of Iran publicly proclaim Israel to be the “little Satan” while he has also said America is the “great” Satan. While Iran is only days away from having enough enriched nuclear material to make a nuclear bomb, they also know Israel has the ability to strike first and decimate the country of Iran.

So how does Iran’s current actions and in the future also include Turkey and Russia? And why? Remember a few years ago Russia, Turkey (a supposed NATO ally of the US), and Iran signed a mutual agreement to support each other as they helped Assad of Syria in his country’s civil war? This was a historic first! Never before had these 3 countries gathered together peacefully to agree to, if need be, fight alongside each other. For centuries these countries have fought each other!

Think about this for a moment. Over the past few years Putin of Russia has maintained his desire to REESTABLISH the old Soviet Union that he feels Gorbachev destroyed in his agreement with Reagan to “tear down this wall”, the Berlin wall that separated the east from the west, the Soviet Union from Western civilization. Putin began this effort when he invaded and took over Crimea (part of the country of Ukraine) in 2014. If he is successful taking back Ukraine, then Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, etc. will soon be next.

If you missed it, after Hamas invaded Israel and slaughtered so many (estimated 1,400+), President Erdogan of Turkey, in support of Hamas, proclaimed Israel to be a “terrorist” state which should be eliminated. What may not be as widely known is that Erdogan (a past member of a radical Islamist group) has also spoken of his desire to REESTABLISH the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire which ruled the Mideast (which included Israel) for over 500 years until their defeat as allies of Germany after WWI. In 1949 Turkey was the very first Muslim country to recognize the Nation of Israel!

Finally, Iran is widely know for having the goal of REESTABLISHING the Mede-Persian empire, but more importantly, creating a Muslim caliphate that will eventually rule the world with Sharia law. By doing this according to the Quran, they believe that will finally bring back the 12th Imam, their Shite messiah who will rule the world. Their belief is they must make the world acceptable to the Imam before he can return. This can only happen if the world is by then Muslim. Look at a map of the world and what is the only country in the Mideast that IS NOT Muslim? Israel! Between Satan’s hatred of the Jews and their false belief’s surrounding the End Times, they strongly believe the destruction of Israel is required!

OK, so how does this all relate to this week’s article.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM (capitals mine) and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Matthew 24:6-8

As I have previously written regarding the End Times and the wars that will be prevalent at that time, there appears to be a difference between the wars between NATIONs and KINGDOMs (What are the differences between “Nations” and “Kingdoms” that Jesus told us about?). In the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24 & 25, I believe Jesus highlighted these because the wars will be between various countries but also between various kingdoms and ethnic groups. Could a coming war against Israel actually be between the Soviet Union, the reborn Ottoman Empire, and the Muslim Caliphate based in Iran? That answer is clearly stated in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The Scripture at the beginning also gives us another bit of information. Russia, Iran and Turkey (along with Libya, Sudan and Ethiopia) will invade Israel as part of the Gog and Magog alliance BUT with God’s Wrath they will actually end up FIGHTING EACH OTHER, not just Israel.

As you know, Iran, Tukey, Libya, Sudan, and Ethiopia are majority Muslim countries. While Russia per se is not Muslim, they do today control the ancient land of Magog (The War of Gog and Magog ) Today the countries of ancient Magog are Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and oh yeah, Afghanistan. All are Muslim states! So, you have a number of Muslim countries in the Last Days invading Israel “…to take a spoil”. What happens next?

“And he will be a wild man; HIS HAND WILL BE AGAINST EVERY MAN, AND EVERY MAN’S HAND AGAINST HIM (capitals mine); and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

Genesis 16:12

Here we see the descendants of Ishmael, the illegitimate son of Abraham (Ishmael and Isaac – Two Brothers from different Mothers are shaping today’s world! ) are called “wild men” who throughout history will fight their brothers/each other.

In reading Ezekiel 38 & 39 about the War of Gog and Magog, we know it is not the Israeli’s who defeat the invading countries. We know it is not Israels “allies” who will come to her defense. Rather it is God from Heaven who will destroy 5 of every 6 of the invaders and who will bring His Wrath on their homelands. He will do this through “… famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.” But He will also turn them on each other so that”… EVERY MAN’S SWORD SHALL BE AGAINST HIS BROTHER (capitals mine)“. These three main “kingdoms” have never in history been friends and all three today are trying to regain their former power. I believe we are today seeing yet another prophecy coming to fruition right before our very eyes.

“Thus will I (God) magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.”

Ezekiel 38:23

What a perfect scenario for the ultimate rise of the anti-christ and his one world government. The elimination of three very anti-Israel “kingdoms” and the resulting 7-year “peace” covenant the anti-christ will sign between Israel and the rest of the world which will usher in the 7-year Tribulation period, the worst time period in world history. But we have so much to be grateful for because in the Bible God told us what is coming and if people will only listen to what He says then when this happens, they should then know He is the Lord! Admit that He is the Lord and came to earth as a humble, sin free man to die on the cross for our sins, repent of those sins and ask Him for His forgiveness and you will spend Eternity in Heaven with Him. His message is so clear and so comforting! If you are also comforted by what He has told us, then please do as He asked us to do and that is to “…therefore comfort one another with these words”. I am doing it and I hope and pray you do also.

May God Bless you as we all witness His Promises being fulfilled in our lifetimes!
