The World is Clearly Divided Regarding Bashar al-Assad

The Middle East has often been a hot bed of intricate political chaos but Bashar al-Assad and his regime continue to clearly divide the world into two camps. The support for Bashar al-Assad is quite unprecedented. The great nuclear super powers of Russia and China out rightly support him. They have continued to veto taking military action against him at the UN. In the last few days Putin has used the G20 to publicly strengthen his stance against President Barack Obama’s intention to deploy a military strike against the Syrian government. Obama and several other world leaders have accused Assad of using chemical weapons against his own people.

Interestingly, Israel has kept silent in the midst of all this debate but some of those supporting Assad have spoken about attacking Israel if Syria is attacked. Furthermore, the divide between the world’s superpowers regarding Syria, as well as the existing tensions in the Middle East, will likely escalate the entire situation to where the world has never been before. However, many questions have yet to be answered.

For us, God does not declare in His Word the dates of when prophecy will be fulfilled, but we do know bible prophecy is Middle-East and Israel centric. Before the final 7 years occur the world stage will need to have been prepared. This stage is now being set before our eyes. As God’s children we are instructed to watch and be aware regarding what’s happening around us. So let’s watch!!

Is the Sweeping Political Reform in the Middle East a Pre-Requisite for the Coming of the Antichrist?

The Word tells us that one day Israel will be trodden under foot by Islamic nations but many of these nations today have many factions and schisms. For example, we have seen in Iraq how Shiites and Sunnis have conflicted with each other even to the point of bloodshed and how the relationship between Hamas and Fatah has presented a weak and divided Palestinian front, in the face of Israel and to the rest of the world.

To understand the Middle East situation today as just Islam versus Israel would be an over simplified view. We must see it as this but also with many other minor conflicts between various groups and even nations. Democracy may indeed be the key to unifying a common purposes in the Islamic Middle East to bring about a unified crusade against Israel in the years to come.

Presently, the support for Islamic nations to become democracies from the West is further supporting the underlying polarisation of Israel on the world stage. The wave of sweeping political reform may indeed be a pre-requiste for Ezekiel 38 with Russia in alliance with these nations fulfilling the prophecy of Gog and Magog. These things must come to pass but one truth will always remain which is that our God in His sovereignty will always be on His throne and will conclude all things according to His will.
