Our series continue in the last three teachings under this series, we've been able to touch History and origin of the Arab nations and Israel, we also see the coming of Islam, then the creation of modern middle east, and finally we see Israel in Prophecy and the Peace Agreement. In this next article under this series, we want to see the main reason of continues crises and struggles in the Middle East and Israel Especially. We will also be touching a little on the Antichrist and The False Prophet.
Then we will concluding this write up with the end time news analysis, videos (of 15th - 18th of August) and screen shots. As we see crises all over the world, in Serra Leone, Bukina Faso, Spain, Congo Dr and Europe nations entirely. Make sure you read this write up with your Bible and read to the end, it's a very long article.
Jerusalem remains the most contested city on earth, having fallen to invading forces more than 20 times throughout its recorded history. The land to which God sent Abraham some 4,000 years ago lies at the very crossroads of three continents. It is also holy to three religions. More than 2,500 years ago God revealed to the prophet Daniel that the land of His people would be fought over throughout the centuries. Interestingly, we see a long time gap in Daniel’s prophecy that accurately foretold what would happen in the centuries ahead. To understand this, we need to turn again to Daniel 11.
As earlier explained, the first 35 verses of Daniel 11 are an accurate, detailed account of what would befall the people of Judah caught up in a confict between the Ptolemaic dynasty of Egypt to the south and the Seleucids of Syria to the north. The rulers of these kingdoms were descended from generals of Alexander the Great, the cruel ruler who was also foretold in the book of Daniel.
In an interesting historical footnote, the first century Jewish historian Josephus recounts a meeting between Alexander and the Jewish high priestn in Jerusalem, who pointed out that Alexander’s coming had been prophesied by Daniel more than two centuries before he emerged on the scene!
Verses 32- 35 appear to concern the faithful Maccabees, who would not abandon God’s laws for pagan Greek ways. Yet these same verses appear to be dual, as the group referred to in verse 35 continues to the “time of the end”, meaning that God’s faithful people in New Testament times, His Church, the early Apostles and Christians of all agest that were killed because of their faith in Jesus Christ. This also include the foolish virgins that missed the Rapture, remember they also will be persecuted and killed by the Antichrist. That's why you must prepare and make yourself ready for the rapture. You can read our teaching series on Rapture here.
Zechariah 14:4 reveals that Jesus Christ will return to the Mount of Olives overlooking Jerusalem. At His return He will establish God’s government on earth, finally bringing peace to the Middle East and the entire world.
End-time prophecy could not be fulflled without the restoration of the Jews to their homeland. Although their nation is called Israel, remember that the 10 tribes of the ancient northern kingdom known as Israel were taken into captivity by Assyria more than a century before the kingdom of Judah (comprising the Israelite tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with a considerable portion of Levi) was invaded and its people taken to Babylon.
Many of the Jews returned from their captivity, but the 10 tribes seemingly disappeared (to where? I believe i will do a thorough analysis of this one day). The Bible shows that in time all the tribes of Israel will return to the Promised Land, but at this point only the tribe of Judah—or at least a portion of it—has been restored to its historic home.
In the Old Testament prophetic book of Zechariah we read that Jerusalem and Judah (Jews constituting the modern state of Israel) are at the center of world confict immediately before Christ’s return. But this prophesied event could not have taken place without the physical restoration of Judah (now named Israel) to some extent in the Holy Land before the end of the age.
In Zechariah 14:3-5 we see this prophecy about Christ’s second coming at the Armagedoon:
“Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fghts in the day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. Then you shall fee through My mountain valley"
Clearly, this prophecy is still for the future.
The preceding verses show that the reason the people need to fear is because Jerusalem will once again be a scene of great turmoil:
“For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem, the city shall be taken, the houses rifed, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city”
Previously Zechariah had recorded these words from God: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it” (Zechariah 12:2-3).
Judah (the Israelis, most of whom are Jews) and Jerusalem are destined to be at the very center of end-time events. The nations that come against her will be so ideologically and emotionally driven they will not be able to think straight (that's the “drunkenness” Zechariah refers to).
Already, some nations and peoples are obsessed with destroying the Jewish homeland of Israel. Another prophet tells of the fall of end-time Israel (descendants of the northern lost 10 tribes) and Judah (the Jews) together, apparently in the same month, an event that never happened in ancient history.
We read of this in Hosea 5.
Condemning Israel and Judah for their repeated idolatry, God says:
“The pride of Israel testifes to his face; therefore Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity [sin]; Judah also stumbles with them…They have dealt treacherously with the Lord… Now a New Moon shall devour them and their heritage” (verses 5, 7).
A New Moon “devouring” them would seem to mean that they both will fall within a month, a 30- day period.
The struggle Continues
Clearly, at the time of the end another round of great turmoil will engulf the Middle East, only this time it will be far worse than anything ever seen before.
Part of the key to understanding this passage is to realize that the center of the prophecy is the Holy Land and Jerusalem, the historic land given to the children of Israel. The “kings” referred to are powerful leaders who will come from regions to the north and south and vie for control of the area, trampling all over Judah in the process.
A century ago no one could have understood many of the prophecies relating to this part of the world because the Ottoman Empire ruled over the places now occupied by the chief adversaries in the Mideast confict. This fact helps us understand God’s words to Daniel at the end of his prophetic book: “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end” (Daniel 12:9). It would have been impossible for Daniel, living in the sixth century B.C., to have understood the astounding changes that would lead up to today’s complex Middle East situation.
We read in the prophetic books of Daniel and Revelation that another global superpower will arise at the end of this age. We find further details of this end-time power in Revelation 17. Just as Daniel saw various beasts that represented the dominant powers to come, so the apostle John saw a vision of another beast that would dominate the world at the very time of the end (verse 3).
The 10 horns referred to here, as an angel explained to John, represent 10 rulers who receive power “for one hour”—symbolic of a short time— with a single ruler who is also called “the beast”, the Antichrist (Revelation 17:12-13). Notice the time setting of these events: “These will make war with the Lamb [the returning Jesus Christ], and the Lamb will overcome them…” (verse 14). This prophecy, then, is for the future, and leads right into the return of Jesus Christ to earth.
But these are not the only signifcant end time players. A religious leader (The False Prophet) symbolized as having “two horns like a lamb” but who speaks “like a dragon” (Revelation 13:11) will play a prominent role in this end- time union of nations. Jesus Christ is the true Lamb of God (John 1:29, 36; Revelation 5:8-9; 19:7-9), so this religious leader apparently will claim to be Christian. But he is really of Satan, “the dragon who… deceives the whole world”
This “beast”, The Antichrist, referred to in Revelation 17 is a continuation of the four beasts of Daniel 7. As we saw earlier, Daniel, while in captivity in Babylon, recorded a vision of “four great beasts” (verse 3), gentile empires that would dominate the Middle East and have a major impact on the people of God. The empires were, in chronological order, the Babylonian Empire, the Medo-Persian Empire, the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great and the Roman Empire.
Attempts to revive the Roman Empire are to succeed dramatically at the time of the end. At that time a successor empire is prophesied to restore the European unity that Rome first achieved more than 2,000 years ago. This empire is to lead right into Christ’s return and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth (verses 9-14).
Since the fourth beast described in Daniel 7 exists at the time of Jesus Christ’s return, and the same is true of the beast John saw in Revelation 17, both prophecies speak of an end-time resurrection of the Roman Empire. This is the other key to understanding the prophecy. The Roman Empire has been revived in numerous forms over the centuries. And one fnal revival remains.
This final resurrection of the Roman Empire, like the original empire, will be centered in Europe. It appears that it can be seen today in its embryonic form in the European Union. These EU nations will combine to form a powerful military force that will involve itself in the Middle East. The Antichrist will come out of Europe, remember he shall be a Roman Prince but he will also have a jewish blood. And he will appear to be the False Messaih the Israel are waiting for. Their true Messaih, Jesus Christ has come and they rejected Him (though they were blinded), Now they will have to receive and accept the false messiah, the Antichrist.
I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
News the Antichrist come in his own name, him will the Israelites believe.
Now, from part one to part four of this topic, we see that series of wars had taken place in this region and the last world war will also take place here too. In our concluding part of this topic, we shall see how the stage is been set for the Armageddon war. There are still many scriptural relevant informations and prophecies a Bride of Christ preparing for His Return at the Rapture should know. This i will do also in the concluding part of this series.
I believe this series from Part 1 to Part 4 has open our of understanding to understand many things especially the significance of the middle east and Israel in the end of time.
We can really see that Israel and the Middle East is the End Time Clock of God. So, watch closer the events happening in this region.
Kindly share the series (from part one to part four) with your friends... I believe they need it.
Stay Tuned for the final part, Part 5 and Part 6.

TRUMP SENDING KUSHNER TO MIDDLE EAST FOR PEACE TALK
President Donald Trump is dispatching a team led by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner to Israel in pursuit of a Middle East peace deal.
Trump is sending the delegation to try to take advantage of a period of relative calm following violent clashes last month over Israeli security arrangements at the Jerusalem shrine, known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, said a senior administration official who requested anonymity to discuss the negotiations.
Kushner will be joined by Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell on the trip, which will include meetings with leaders from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The president wants to set an ambitious agenda for the talks, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, efforts to combat extremism, and addressing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, the official said.
Trump has said he is hopeful his son-in-law can help restart a peace process that has made little headway over the past 25 years. He made addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict an early priority, hosting leaders from both sides at the White House during the opening months of his presidency and visiting Israel during his first international trip as president.
During the visit of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas in May, Trump said a peace agreement "is frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years." He told reporters that negotiators would get a deal done, even while acknowledging that he had heard that "perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians."
"Let's see if we can prove them wrong, OK?" Trump continued.
But his early forays into diplomacy have also run into some hiccups. He suggested during the state visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in February that the U.S. wouldn't necessarily press for a two-state solution, a seeming reversal of long-standing U.S. policy that reflects a key Palestinian demand.
Kushner is a longtime friend of the Israeli prime minister, who is facing a slew of domestic legal troubles. Netanyahu's former chief of staff, Ari Harow, has signed a deal to cooperate with prosecutors there, and police have confirmed they're investigating the prime minister as a suspect in a bribery, fraud, and breach of trust case. Netanyahu has blasted the media and critics over the controversy and accused opponents of attempting a "governmental coup."
The last round of U.S.-led talks, a pet project of former Secretary of State John Kerry, broke down three years ago amid mutual recriminations. ( End of The News).
So we see that thus region is of great importance in the ebd of time, as world leaders are seeking for peace in the region... I believe by now, we suppose to understand the significance of this peace deal in this end of time. If you are not, read our prophetic analysis here.
