DAVID WILKERSON'S PROPHECY OF JUDGMENT
By Paul McGuire
On March 7, 2009 David Wilkerson issued a strong prophetic
warning of impending judgment upon America and the world.
Wilkerson said, "AN
EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO
BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE - EVEN THE
GODLIEST AMONG US.
Some Bible teacher's, who teach a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, which I believe the Bible teaches, may have difficulty with David Wilkerson's prophecy because at face-value it appears to describe events that would occur during the seven year Tribulation Period. However, I would like to point out two things. First, there is nothing in the Old Testament or New Testament that state's that God cannot allow judgment prior to the Tribulation Period. History is filled with examples, of what may have been God's judgment on a nation or an individual after the birth of the Church or what is commonly referred to as the "Church Age." It is a clear that "the time of Jacob's trouble" begins with the Rapture of the Church and the revealing of the Anti-Christ. But, judgment has and can occur before that time period. The difference is that the judgment and wrath of God during the seven year Tribulation Period begins with the Church of Jesus Christ being removed from the earth and the man of sin or the Anti-Christ is revealed.
Clearly, when one reads David Wilkerson's vision of judgment and his word's, it appears to reflect David Wilkerson's Post Tribulation viewpoint. For example, Wilkerson writes,
In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation." These words indicate a Post Tribulation viewpoint. However, if Wilkerson's vision is from the Lord none of the things Wilkerson says necessarily have to occur after the seven year Tribulation Period begins or we are on the verge of the Rapture immediately before the Tribulation Period begins. I am not saying this with certainty as to the date of the "Rapture," as the Bible warns against specific date setting.
Obviously, we cannot equate David Wilkerson's vision at the same level as the scripture. David Wilkerson has had earlier visions which did not seem to come true exactly as he saw them. Yet, many of the things he saw did come true. Some would raise the argument, that if David Wilkerson's prophecy is not 100% accurate that he is not truly a Biblical prophet. There is no question that in the Old Testament, a prophet could be stoned to death for not being 100% accurate. However, there are many faithful leaders in the Body of Christ who are alive today who have missed God's timing or who have gotten certain things wrong. Yet, they remain faithful men of God. Again, the question could be legitimately raised "your argument is on a slippery slope theologically?" In the strictest sense of interpretation that challenge is legitimate. That is why no man, vision or experience, including the opinions of this author can be put on the same level of scripture.
However, what if God did reveal something to David Wilkerson? What if for example, what he saw was a consequence of an Israeli strike against Iran where computer guided missiles from Russia and other nations were launched. Intelligence experts are aware of the fact that there are thousands of missile aimed at major U.S. cities and vice versa that are on a hair-trigger alert. What if Iran attacked Israel and that action precipitated a nuclear missile exchange through super-powers like Russia, China, Germany, Britain and the U.S. or Russian vessels armed with nukes traveling through the Panama Canal or off the coast of Venezuela or Cub a? What if an act of terrorism such as an EMP or Electronic Pulse Weapon crashed the power grid and U.S. system? Clearly, riots would occur and cities would burn. Or the possibility of unexpected asteroid hit? The possibilities are endless. In addition, we have the theological debate among those who hold to a Pre-Tribulation position of an Ezekiel 38 scenario taking place before the Tribulation Period. I am not here to be an apologist for David Wilkerson, but I am suggesting that his vision does not necessarily conflict with the prophetic time table.
In the final analysis, David Wilkerson's prophetic warning should be heeded. It does not mean that the Tribulation Period has begun, even though Wilkerson probably believes that. The point is that David Wilkerson had a long term track record of being a strong and faithful preacher of the Word of God. He has challenged apostasy and false prophecy for years. At every level, David Wilkerson's character is one of a true Biblical leader in a day where apostasy is epidemic. I for one take David Wilkerson's prophecy soberly. I do not put it at the same level as the Scripture and I do so, recognizing the fallibility of even the best of Christian leaders. But, begin to be prepared both spiritually practically is prudent. The American Church and much of the Church in Europe is the Laodecian Church described by Jesus Christ in the Book of Revelation. After 911, the Church continued to slumber and even in the midst of global economic crisis the modern Laodecian Church refuses to consider the real possibility that Christ could return and Israel is our major prophetic sign.
Without question we are in the last days and Israel is God's prophetic time clock. Iran is a threat to Israel's very existence. Although, the Church and what Henry Kissinger recently called, "the new world order" trifles with Israel's existence and right to the land, God does not. Isn't it interesting that Wilkerson issue's his warning as the threat to Israel is at the critical state. I don't know about you, but I am going to seek the face of God and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I will not be headed to the hills in a camouflage outfit, but I will do what the Lord has commanded us to do which is "occupy until I come." Ultimately, my faith is in the Word of God and not the prophecy of any man
The Prophet Daniel Part 7 - Paul teaches through the lens of Daniel and talks about where America and the world is prophetically on the time line? What makes a Biblical prophet? Paul discusses in detail the recent vision and dream of warning David Wilkerson had of cities on fire with rioting and supernatural judgment. How does this fit with the timing of the Rapture? What are the dangers of putting men above God in terms of prophetic callings? How do you both spiritually and practically prepare for the days ahead? Economically, food supplies and other ways to prepare. What if the system crashes? Listen to this MP3 download.
Paul McGuire's prophetic novel depicts an America and the world very much like David Wilkerson's recent vision. "The Warning" shows how Christian's survive and like Joseph and Daniel in the midst of cities of fire, rioting and earth-shattering judgment. "The Warning" takes place before the Tribulation Period and the book's hero has a plan to fulfill the Great Commission and to "occupy until I come" as judgment unfolds in America and the world triggered by their division. "The Warning" gives a plan and hope in the midst of cities burning and rioting. God has a plan for you in this time and it is not just to survive. He wants to bring His people into leadership positions.

cover of the The Are You Ready? shows fireball over major areas
of the world. Nuclear attack, and EMP ( Electro- Magnetic
Pulse Weapon) or God's judgment? This prophetic book by
Paul McGuire is a best-selling book that put the coming merger
of Canada, Mexico and the United States front and center in the
national debate. The book was read by the Prime Minister
of Israel before the Israeli-Lebanon war. In the book Paul
warns of the dangers of giving up land for peace. The book
also exposes the move towards global government, global currency
and the possibility of a major terrorist attacks against U.S.,
European and Israeli cities. It exposes an occult
conspiracy operating in the America and the reason for hope in
the future. Wendy Alec called it a "fantastic hook!"
THE DAY THE DOLLAR DIED" THE MOST POWERFUL BOOK ON PROPHECY SINCE "THE LATE GREAT PLANET EARTH" McGUIRE REVEALS THE SECRET BEHIND THE CURRENT FINANCIAL MELTDOWN AND THE COMING ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM & CASHLESS SOCIETY!"
"The Day The Dollar Died" explains in easy to understand detail why the current financial meltdown is being engineered by a powerful group who are deliberately using the crisis to bring in a new financial world order, an "International Federal Reserve," a cashless society, a microchip, global government and a new world order Constitution which is based on "one world under man - the Antichrist" instead of "one world under God." The U.S. Declaration of Independence tells us that the "Creator gives us certain inalienable rights such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Founding Father's believed in God and therefore understood that God not only created man, but gave men and women certain rights that no government should be allowed to take away such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of the press. But, under the "new world order" there is a conspiracy to create a new humanisitic Constitution where government will take away your rights especially if you are a Christian. Who are these men and women? What is their secret plan? What can you do about it? How can you prepare? There is hope because knowledge is power! Once you understand who the Shadow Government is and how they are moving quickly to create a Big Brother society where they are the "scientific elite" who rule the rest of us, than you will understand the Luciferian nature of this plot. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in our lifetime. The predictions of Daniel about a "Fourth Beast" and the Apostle John's warning of a one world government, one world economic system and mark of the beast is emerging all around us. Educate yourself and know what is going on and why?
Is the current financial crisis an accident or a planned event? What is the motive for a global financial meltdown? What was the motive behind the 1929 stock market crash? Who control's our money supply and who really owns America and the rest of the world?
Paul's brand new book "The DAY THE DOLLAR DIED explains how the current financial meltdown is leading to a one world economic system, cashless society, the mark of the beast and one world government. If you want to understand why trillions of dollars are being spent on bailouts around the world and what the hidden agenda is behind it all then you must read Paul's new book.

McGUIRE REPORT: ON THE ROAD TO GLOBAL CURRENCY , THE FEDERAL RESERVE, THE MORTGAGE BAIL OUT, WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING IN THE FINANCIAL MARKETS, WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOUR FAMILY & HOW YOU CAN PROSPER!
In my special McGuire Report entitled “On The Road To Global Currency: The Federal Reserve, The Mortgage Bail Out, What Is Really Happening In The Financial Markets, What It Means For Your Family & What You Can Do About It.” I will give you a detailed MP3 Audio Report for you to download. Also, I will discuss how this interfaces with Israel, Iran, Russia and America- What On Earth Is Happening at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa October 16th at 7pm admission is FREE. Please pass the word, bring friends, and send out E Mails to as many people as you can.
I am going to go into far more detail in the Audio MP3 which you can download, but here is an overview. First, I believe that the current economic crisis in the long term is engineered with the purpose of giving the Federal Reserve, or powerful international banking concerns more control of our financial system. In a sense, it is a coup d’état by the Federal Reserve to control billions of dollars in assets globally. The passage of “The Treasury Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory System,” transfers to the Federal Reserve what little is left of our financial sovereignty: savings and loans; state chartered banks; thrifts and credit unions; the entire mortgage and insurance systems, as well as oversight of the Payment and Settlement System of Wall Street. The Federal Reserve now controls all of America’s financial markets and international markets as well. You can read “The Treasury Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory Structure”, visit: http://www.ustreas.gov).
In the MP3 I go into how this established the financial architecture for a global currency and one world economic system. This is no longer a future event it is a happening now and it will be mean profound changes for you, your family and your children. You must prepare yourself and understand what is happening. But, there are Kingdom Principles you can employ to prosper in the middle of the chaos. If you are not actively seeking after wisdom you are going to miss it.
McGUIRE REPORT PART 1 - ON THE ROAD TO GLOBAL CURRENCY, THE FEDERAL RESERVE, THE MORTGAGE BAIL OUT, WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING IN THE FINANCIAL MARKETS, WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOUR FAMILY & HOW YOU CAN PROSPER
During the Great Depression large numbers of people built thriving businesses, acquired wealth and built great ministries during this time.
Today, the Federal Reserve is printing billions of dollars into the American and global financial system. The net result will be a massive increase of interest on the debt that Americans owe to the Federal Reserve. (Remember the Federal Reserve has nothing to do with our government and is not Federal) Essentially what this means billions of dollars that Americans owe to private international banks who actually own and run our financial system. Depending upon how this debt is monetized, it will impact our purchasing power, The value of the dollar of the dollar will drop. This may be provide the motivation for millions of Americans to accept the proposed merger of our currency with Canada and Mexico in the very near future. Potentially it could create en environment where Americans will readily accept a complete merger of other nations in North and South America. CAFTA, NAFTA and the “amero” dollar. However, things could accelerate and instead of simply an “amero” dollar you would have the Special Drawing Rights-SDR which would create a new global currency consisting of the dollar, the euro, the British pound sterling and the Chinese yen. The SDR is the currency of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. A new global currency.
Ironically, the finance chiefs of five of the six-member, Gulf Corporation, which is rolling in oil money adopted a plan to create a single currency. The six Islamic states are Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Oman pulled out last year. These Middle Eastern nations who have hundreds of billions in oil wealth are targeted 2010 for the creation of their monetary union which will establish an Islamic single currency. This follows the trend of leaving national currencies in favor of “regional currencies.” The EU nations have abandoned their national currencies in favor of the “euro.” You can guess what’s next on the horizon? The U.S. adopting a common currency with Canada and Mexico or the “amero” dollar, or moving into an International currency consisting of the dollar, the Swiss Franc, the British pound sterling, the euro and the Chinese yen. Either regional a regional currency, or an International currency. A one world economic system incrementally, or in a bigger step. What does that mean for you, your family and children? It means major changes in the mortgage market in America. The banks and investment firms that will own your mortgage will be International. Maybe, British, Chinese or French? Like the European Commonwealth America will transition into a more feudalistic arrangement. The idea of o the American dream and owning your own home will be the exception. Now, like Europe, middle class Americans will lease or pay a monthly rent for their homes. The dream of owning your own home in America will be the exception because your standard of living is being adjusted and International banks will own your home.
I go into this in detail in the MP3. But, this has been the game plan all along. The Four Pillars of the U.N. Agenda. Environmental which means the implementation of Agenda 21,Sustainable Development,Biodiversity, and the President’s Commission on Sustainable Development. Bottom line- the whole Gore Agenda is about lowering the American standard of living to make it equal to Third World Nations. Then there is the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, WTO, and Global Security and Exchange Commission. I discuss it further in the MP3.
McGUIRE REPORT PART 2: PLANNED CHAOS, THE FEDERAL RESERVE GLOBAL CURRENCY, GLOBAL GOVERNANCE, END OF THE NATION STATE, THE SPREADING OF APOSTASY & PREPARATION FOR A POLITICAL MESSIAH, END OF THE MIDDLE CLASS? HOPE FOR YOUR FUTURE !
Harvard Economist Schumpeter called this “creative destruction” as a mechanism of saving capitalism. However, in this case capitalism is saved by a massive wealth transfer from the middle class to International banks and the Federal Reserve. The U.S. economy and the prosperity of the last few decades has been created by debt: mortgages, credit cards, home equity loans, lines of credit, auto loans, tuition loans, medical loans, Treasury bills, notes and bonds. However, although there may be a percentage lowering of the American standard of living in order to artificially bring in line with the standard of living of other nations. I believe that economic opportunities will continue to abound in the U.S. and for those who are diligent, educated, wise and prepared there still will remain tremendous economic opportunities. In others words, in the U.S. people can still make money, build businesses, become entrepreneurs, and opportunity will continue to exist. There are people today who are going to create the next Microsoft, Google, Starbucks, Ebay, biotech industries and so on. It would be a serious mistake to get into a doom and gloom mindset. Without question, there are going to be serious economic adjustments, the coming economic upheaval is going to affect many people adversely. This is going to being about economic disruption, but not economic collapse.
It is important to understand that because many businesses, industries, and ministries will be launched and created during this time. This means your children must continue to be educated at the highest levels possible, and adults must keep their eye on the bouncing ball. Dave Hunt made the remark that economic prosperity will continue until a world charismatic leaders arrives and the word enters a Tribulation period. This is not a time for a “bunker” mentality or you are going to miss incredibly opportunity. I will go into this further at the Hilton Hotel meeting in Costa Mesa on October 16th at 7PM and I am going to into this more in depth on the MP3 Download. Remember “as long as they sought the Lord they continue to prosper.” That does not mean to you will be immune or not affected by the economic storm. But, “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread.”
McGUIRE REPORT: PROPHECY, ECONOMIC MELTDOWN, ISRAEL & WHAT IS TO COME IN AMERICA
Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve stated that we are in the worst financial crisis of the last 100 years. Yet, this crisis was predicted by a number or people before and there are some who speculate it is in some degree connected to our relationship with the nation of Israel. I have just finished a third MP3 in a series entitled “Economic Meltdown, Israel and What is to Come in America? I go into details and I invited you to our special meeting at the Hilton Hotel In Costa Mesa on October 16th which is free, but you must pre-register by E Mail.
First, let’s look at a brief overview of the global financial crisis. Easy money and credit has been pumped into the U.S. economy by the Fed, for over a decade. A housing bubble has exploded and the crisis is now global. Governments and economists are calling for the world to work together with a new international regulatory system and a global currency. However, just like in the time of Joseph, God knew this was coming and has made provision for His people. I will discuss this more in detail on the MP3. But, first let’s understand the dynamics of what is now happening in America and around the world.
The financial crisis is now global; that means across the world governments must work together in new a global economic system to survive. The financial Meltdown is spreading across the Atlantic into major banks all over Europe. The German government just spent $51 billion in loans borrowed from German banks and the German government to save Hypo Real Estate, the country’s second-biggest property lender. Hypo Real Estate was just one of five major banks in seven European countries bailed out in just three days. Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands rescued Fortis. England nationalized Bradford & Bingley. Belgium, France and Luxembourg saved Dexia. Iceland rescued Glitnir. Ireland took €400 billion of contingent liabilities onto the national balance sheet, when it stood behind the deposits and debts of its six large banks and building societies.
The “Bail Out Plan” consists of having the Treasury purchase
approximately $800 billion of bad dept from both U.S. and
foreign banks doing business in the United States. The
Treasury would also be authorized to buy up securities
backed by bad auto loans, student loans and credit card
debts. Unless God’s people are prepared like they were in
the days of famine in Joseph’s time, you are going to see
the American Middle Class dissolve into Third World living
conditions. This is the purpose of surfacing political
candidates from both parties who espouse to varying degrees
socialist economic policies. Obama clearly has ideological
ties to the Marxism espoused by the Weatherman and his plan
for America is socialistic in nature. But, the Republican
Party essentially is offering a similar menu. Remember both
parties share in responsibility for the Meltdown. This
clearly means the loss of personal, religious and economic
freedoms in America. Make no mistake about it. Without
God’s intervention you and your children are going to live
in a radically different kind of America. As I said in the
title of my book, “Are You Ready?”
The question should be asked has God tried to warn His people before the crisis?
In June of 1998 David Wilkerson had a prophecy about an economic holocaust in America. Here a few excerpts from that prophecy:
“For some time I have prophesied that America is about to be stricken with an economic holocaust. Now, lately, I've become convinced that one of two scenarios could take place. Here is one scenario::
“On the other hand, the stock market or bond markets may dive overnight with no rebound at all. If so, we would see a daily retreat among investors - because everyone will recognize America has been hit with a full-blown market crash. At that point, total panic will set in. And we'll know our nation has entered a period of divine judgment - because we'll take a precipitous, sudden slide into chaos”
David Wilkerson also had a vision of an economic crisis:
Wilkerson recently gave a sermon where he talked about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and revival as people come to Christ when the financial institutions are shaken Psalm 93:3 “The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the flood have lifted up their voice. The floods lift up their waves. The Lord on High is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea.”
There appears to be a direct relationship between America’s
treatment of Israel and our current financial crisis.
The stock market collapse on September 29, 2008, happened on
the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Condoleezza
Rice has been flying continually to Israel to pressure
Israel to give up land. President George W. Bush president
is calling for a Palestinian state, and for Israel to give
In the Old Testament God warns that nations who try to divide Israel in the last days will be judged. In Joel 3:2 the Lord says that He will "enter into judgment" against those nations that "have divided up My land.”
In terms of Bible prophecy, there appears to be an effort to use the financial crisis to create a global currency and a global economic system. In 1961 the nation of New Zealand experienced its private corporations, government and economy being taken over by foreign investors as sort of an experiment in globalization. The Bank for International Settlements.The World Bank, and The International Monetary Fund began lending large sums of money to New Zealand for the purpose of experimenting with a transition from nationalism to globalism.
It is important to remember that the primary purpose and objective of the United Nations created in 1945 is bring about world government. Under the Bretton Woods Monetary Conference of 1944, the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, International Trade Organization and Global Security Exchange Commission ( G-7 Ministers ) have been established for the ultimate purpose of a one world economic system and global government. See Revelation Chapter 13. “Economic Melt Down, Israel and What is to Come in America? Hear “Economic Meltdown, Israel and What is to Come in America? Part 3 MP3
Despite the economic chaos, God is still on the throne. You and I have been chosen for such a time as this. God will provide for His people and He will provide for you. There will be tremendous opportunities in the days ahead for God’s people. God does not want His people to develop a “bunker mentality” or “hide out in the hills.” Clearly, a shaking is coming. But, God desires to open doors for His people on many levels. These will be challenging times. But, these are times to draw closer to the Lord. Seek the face of God. He will lead you and guide you. Seek the face of God for your children. He will lead them and guide them. Do not stop education, prudent investment, building ministries or starting businesses. “The diligent shall bear rule the slothful shall be under tribute.” This is not a time for retreat, but for advance!
McGUIRE REPORT PART 3: FINANCIAL MELTDOWN, GLOBAL CURRENCY, ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM, FEDERAL RESERVE, WARNINGS OF ECONOMIC COLLAPSE DAVID WILKERSON & HOW TO PROSPER IN ECONOMIC MELTDOWN
EZEKIEL 38 STRIKE ON IRAN: BEGINNING OF WAR OF GOG & MAGOG?
After threatening to strike Israeli and U.S. interests if attacked, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards test-fired nine missiles, including one that Tehran claims has the range to reach Israel. Russia has invaded Georgia and has sent ships with nuclear missiles to Venezuela. Russia has also sent arranged to help Cuba build a space station and construct nuclear “power plants” Venezuela.
Russia is rolling in cash by selling WMD’s and supplying Europe with oil. There are so many billionaires living in Moscow that mansions are going up over night in brand new expensive enclaves for the “super-rich.”
The United States election is being watched carefully by Russia, Iran and other nations. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice continues to fly into Israel pressuring them into dividing up the land. Coincidentally, our financial institutions are collapsing and our nation has been hit with hurricanes. Are we coming to Ezekiel 38?
Iranian State-run media, said the tests near the Strait of Hormuz included long- and medium-range missiles, among them a new version of the Shahab-3, which Tehran maintains can hit targets 2,000 kilometers, or 1,250 miles, away.
The reported tests coincide with increasingly tense negotiations over Tehran's nuclear program, which Iran says is for civilian purposes but which many Western governments suspect is meant for building nuclear weapons. At the same time, U.S. and British warships have been conducting naval maneuvers in the Gulf - apparently within range of the launch site of the missiles tested. Iran’s Supreme Leader boasted that Iran will hit Tel Aviv, U.S. shipping in the Gulf and American interests around the world if it is attacked over its disputed nuclear activities.
"The first bullet fired by America at Iran will be followed by Iran burning down U.S. vital interests around the globe," the students news agency ISNA quoted Ali Shirazi as saying in a speech to Revolutionary Guards. Many people in the United States, Israel, and European Union intelligence agencies and believe Iran is building nuclear weapons. Yet, Tehran says its nuclear energy program is peaceful.
"The Zionist regime is pressuring White House officials to attack Iran. If they commit such a stupidity, Tel Aviv and U.S. shipping in the Persian Gulf will be Iran's first targets and they will be burned," Shirazi was quoted as saying. Shirazi, a mid-level cleric, is Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's representative to the Revolutionary Guards. "The Iranian nation will never accept bullying. The Iranian nation is a nation of believers which believes in jihad and martyrdom. No army in the world can confront it," he added.
In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's spokesman, Mark Regev, refused to comment on the threat to hit Tel Aviv, saying only: "Shirazi's words speak for themselves."
A number of years ago, I had the privilege of interviewing Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in San Diego, at a private briefing held by Pastor Leo Giovenitti. I asked Prime Minister Olmert directly about the threat of Iran, and the danger of “giving up land for peace.” In fact, immediately before the Israeli-Lebanon war, Prime Minister Olmert sent me note that he had ready my book where I outlined the historical results of what happened when Israel gave up land for peace. Despite his outward diplomacy, I believe Prime Minister Olmert, and Israel will no longer tolerate a threat to its survival in the form of a militantly Islamic-state of Iran whose leader continually threatens to destroy Israel. The term Jewish term “Never Again!” has fresh meaning for the nation of Israel whose very existence is threatened by a nuclear-Iran!
Seymour M. Hersh, writing in an article entitled “Preparing the Battlefield,” in the New Yorker Magazine, said, “Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, according to current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources. These operations, for which the President sought up to four hundred million dollars, were described in a Presidential Finding signed by Bush, and are designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership. The covert activities involve support of the minority Ahwazi Arab and Baluchi groups and other dissident organizations. They also include gathering intelligence about Iran’s suspected nuclear-weapons program.”
Many intelligence experts believe that President Bush may well want to strike Iran before he leaves term as President of the United States in 2009. In fact, the Stratfor Intelligence Report published a briefing entitled “The War In Iraq Is Not Over,” by Dr. George Friedman. In the analysis, Dr. Friedman argued that the United States has two fundamental reasons for invading Iraq. First, “To transform the psychology of the Islamic world, which had perceived the United States as in essence weak, and unwilling to take risks to achieve its ends.” Second, “To use Iraq as a strategic base of operations from which to confront Islamist regimes that are either incapable of or unwilling to deny al Qaeda and other Islamist groups access to enabling resources.” Dr. Friedman continued;
“Iran: the extraordinarily complex game that Tehran is playing makes Syrian foreign policy transparent. Iran has positioned itself in such a way that its pro-Iranian Shiite groups in Iraq could wage a guerrilla war against the United States, while Tehran holds open the possibility of reaching implicit accommodations with the United States -- all at the same time. Iranian subtlety notwithstanding, Washington regards Iran as the single most potentially dangerous regime in the region, because of both its resources and the complexity of its politics and policies. Iran has positioned itself to be fundamentally unpredictable -- and having achieved this goal, it concerns the United States tremendously.”
The build-up of Iran’s nuclear weapons program continues to make Iran a threat to the nation of Israel, and the United States of America.”
To those of us who take Bible prophecy and the Bible literally the words of the Prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel Chapter 38 appear to be coming alive in our generation:
word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your
face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh,
Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say,
‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O
Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn
you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with
all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed,
a great company with bucklers and shields, all of
them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia,
and Libya are with them, all of them
with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the
house of Togarmah from the far north and all its
troops—many people are with you.
Although, the timing of Ezekiel Chapter 38 is a matter of debate among Bible scholars who hold to a Pre-Tribulation Rapture position. The majority believe that Ezekiel Chapter 38 or the War of Gog and Magog happens after the Rapture of the Church. However, there are some Bible scholars who believe that Ezekiel 38 is not part of the War of Armageddon, and therefore could occur before the revealing of the Antichrist, and the Rapture. It is interesting to note that in either Eschatological time frame, it clearly means we could be approaching the Seventieth Week of Daniel, or “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” If Ezekiel Chapter 38 were to occur before the Rapture, this could signal the major defeat for militant Islam, and cause many people globally to turn to the God of the Bible. If Ezekiel 38 happens after the Rapture of the Church, then we are on the verge of seeing a convergence of prophetic events occur. These events include merging of the United States into a globalist Revived Roman Empire whose headquarters could be a high-tech Babylon in Iraq.
If you view the Bible literally, and not through some distorted grid of “pre-understanding,” than the Bible speaks clearly for itself. It is God’s Word declaring the end from the beginning. If the War of Gog and Magog were to occur before the Tribulation Period, or if we are moving quickly towards the Seventieth Week of Daniel. In either scenario, it would be extremely important for us to understand the depth, and richness of God’s infallible Word. God intends to magnify Himself, and reveal Himself to many nations through the fulfillment of the everlasting covenant He made with Abraham.
I would suggest that we are closer than we think, and that it would be incumbent upon us as believers to “study to show thyself approved,” regarding all scriptures, and especially the prophetic scriptures.
