The Bible is more up to date than tomorrow’s Newspaper. It is a book of history which is also the most accurate and reliable book of prophecy, predicting all the events that will happen at the end of this turbulent age in which we live. A dramatic event will soon happen in the Middle East that will transform the nation of Israel and subsequently impact every nation on earth. This pamphlet contains details of this event that have seldom been recognized even by ardent students of the Bible. It certainly deserves your thoughtful consideration. It may change your life and destiny forever!

A war against Israel is certainly inevitable in the very near future. All the indications of this are presently extremely evident. The stage has been carefully set by Iran using several terrorist agencies in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. This war has also been graphically predicted in the Bible. The enemy armies are sitting on Israel’s borders awaiting the strategic moment to strike. This war will be intended to annihilate the Jewish nation but will have several unforeseen results that will explode upon the world.

It will be followed by a visitation and revelation of Messiah to Israel. These results will begin in Israel and Jerusalem but the impact will ultimately be felt all around the world.

In our present troubled world three things are currently imminent and inevitable. The first is a vicious attack on Israel by all her surrounding neighbours with the aim of totally destroying the Jewish State. The second thing is a miraculous, supernatural intervention by Almighty God to save, deliver and preserve Israel and her population. The third thing will be the visitation and revelation of the Jewish Messiah who will have led Israel to this amazing victory (Zechariah 12:10).

The first of these critical events, the attack upon Israel, will be made by mortal men under the banner of a false god. As such it will be flawed and unsuccessful. The response to the attack will be made by the true God who has declared Himself to be the saviour, deliverer and King of Israel. In the wake of this amazing victory Israel will recognize the identity of their deliverer and the whole nation will humbly acknowledge Him as their long awaited Messiah.

For some years now Israel has been living under the serious threat and threshold of a possible nuclear war. The threats have been consistently made by the President of Iran and the religious Mullahs who support him. President Ahmadinejad is obviously a mentally deranged psychopathic tyrant, capable of anything who is certainly a dangerous person whose threats need to be seriously considered. He is an Haman/Hitler tyrant who must certainly never be underestimated. He is spending billions of dollars of his nation’s budget to produce weapons of mass destruction that include nuclear warheads. He has also been supplied with hitech missiles capable of reaching targets hundreds of miles away bearing highly destructive warheads.

Ahmadinejad has already launched the early stages of this war under the auspices of his minions in Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and Egypt. Thousands of highly trained terrorist - fanatically minded men and women have dedicated their lives to the cause of destroying Israel. They have already launched several efforts to attack, invade and destroy the structure of the Jewish State but each attack so far has been defeated. Nevertheless they continue to persuade themselves that their task is not an impossible one. They are constantly planning further more effective attacks and have surreptitiously gained the support of numerous nations and organizations.

The world in general and the church in particular needs to wake up and realize that these threats are more than empty threats. They are explicit, intentional and extremely serious. Not only is Israel under intimidation, the entire world will suffer fearful repercussions from such a war.

The Bible Clearly Predicts These Events

Few people have recognized it. Even fewer are evidently truly convinced that it will happen any time soon. Even though the Bible foretells it and the present world situation confirms it, most people thrust their heads into the proverbial sand and try to ignore the possibility. Secularists of all shades have tried to prove that the Bible is outmoded, unreliable and inaccurate. But they will soon see that Bible prophecy concerning the days in which we now live is meticulously accurate and in considerable detail. Hundreds of prophecies that occur in the Bible have already been fulfilled with amazing accuracy. These were mainly concerning the first coming of Christ to this earth. However there are yet many predictions still to be fulfilled concerning the End Times of this age. Some of those prophecies refer to a war that will be launched upon Israel by her closest neighbours backed by several other nations. We will look into some of these prophecies in Psalm 83, Joel 3, Zechariah 12 and elsewhere. Not only does the Bible predict an amazing, startling, supernatural victory for Israel. It also predicts the greatest event that has happened to Israel since the exodus from Egypt. It will be the spiritual re-birth and transformation of Israel as a precursor to a worldwide harvest from all nations into the Kingdom of God.

A Modern Day Haman/Hitler Has Arisen

The Book of Esther is coming to life again. And God is calling out to those who “have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this” to be watchmen on behalf of Jerusalem. This great drama was played out on the stage of Persia (modern Iran) when a psychopathic maniac determined to completely annihilate all Jews throughout a vast kingdom. The thrilling story of how God intervened and saved the Jews through the intervention of a young unknown Jewish girl is still celebrated to this day among Jews. How ironic that another madman has taken the centre stage in Iran and declared to all the world his intention to annihilate the Jewish State and restore their land to Islamic rule.

Bible believers who recognize that Bible prophecy is accurate to the finest detail may understand that history often repeats itself and that this will be the case with Iran. Firstly because a new potential destroyer has arisen breathing fearsome threats against Jews. Secondly because Jehovah God will once again outwit the destroyer and obliterate him. Israel is about to be dramatically rescued once again and the ultimate result will be even more sensational than was their deliverance and exodus from Egypt.

Iran Is Frantically Stockpiling Nuclear Weapons And Missiles

Working in and with Syria, Lebanon, Russia, North Korea and China, Iran has been working for several years now on a plan to wipe out the Jewish presence in “Palestine.” Not only has Ahmadinejad made verbal threats of annihilation he has also made many concrete steps towards his objective by creating a nuclear arsenal at tremendous expense. Not even a madman would expend so much money, time and effort into the project he had no intention of fulfilling. The scenario is so much like what happened in Germany in the 1930’s. Initially at that time the world did not take Hitler seriously. Although he had laboriously made his plans widely known to all and sundry, no one took him seriously until he had invaded and devastated several European nations. By the time the world awoke to the dreadful reality that Hitler really mean to carry out his plans it was too late to save millions from tragedy and genocide.

Islamic Resolve And Determination

The agents of Islam have a maniacal and fanatical dedication that defies the understanding of the non Muslim world. The perpetrators of international terrorism are filled with a dark obsession with death. Christians may talk, preach and sing about the impending Kingdom of God but their dedication to its reality pales desperately compared to the dedication of Islamic disciples. When most Christian speak of dying with Christ they usually have a sentimental, idealistic euphoria with purely spiritual application. In complete contrast when Muslims volunteer for martyrdom they have a very real purpose in mind such as strapping a bomb around their waist and blowing a group of innocent people into eternity. The Islamic vision of world domination is not a fairy story. They fully intend to literally gain ascendancy over all humanity and many of them are prepared to enthusiastically lay down their lives to attain it.

The Predicted Result Of The War

The war that will soon be launched by Israel’s nearest neighbours will produce an amazing, supernatural victory for Israel. The Israeli Defence Force that has already gained an awesome respect through the victories they have won against overwhelming odds, will gain a victory that will eclipse all previous victories. This time it will not be Israel’s military skills and strategies that will win the day. It will become recognized by every nation on earth that this victory has been procured with direct divine aid. The world will be staggered and stand amazed in awe and wonder before the unusual event in Israel.

The Messianic Unveiling

Isaiah prophesied that Jehovah’s servant (the Messiah) would bring Jacob back to Him and gather Israel to Him. He further declared that this task alone was too small for Messiah and that He would also be a light to the Gentiles to bring salvation to the ends of the earth.

Isaiah 49:5-6

5 "And now the LORD says, Who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, To bring Jacob back to Him, So that Israel is gathered to Him (For I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, And My God shall be My strength),

6 Indeed He says, 'It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob, And to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, That You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.'" NKJV

Immediately after the victory has been won the world will then witness a tremendous spiritual phenomena when Israel’s deliver will reveal His true identity as the long promised Messiah.

Israel will become a Messianic Nation when Jehovah pours upon her the anointing of the Holy Spirit and reveals His Messiah. A great army of reapers from the ranks of the house of David will combine with a multitude of Gentile believers to be the “One New Man” and gather in the greatest harvest of all from a world that is experiencing great tribulation. Not only will the awe and reverence of God be upon the nations. The knowledge of the Lord Jehovah will also cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Isaiah 11:9).

To condense and abbreviate what is going to happen soon in the Middle East let us look at what the Bible, the only truly reliable predictor of the future says:

1. A vicious attack, will be soon be launched by all Israel’s Muslim neighbours

Psalms 83:2-8

2 Don't you hear the tumult of your enemies? Don't you see what your arrogant enemies are doing?

3 They devise crafty schemes against your people, laying plans against your precious ones.

4 "Come," they say, "let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence."

5 This was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you —

6 these Edomites and Ishmaelites, Moabites and Hagrites,

7 Gebalites, Ammonites, and Amalekites, and people from Philistia and Tyre.

8 Assyria has joined them, too, and is allied with the descendants of Lot. NLT

2. Jehovah God will completely destroy the enemy armies that lead the attack blowing them way like chaff before the wind

Psalms 83:13-18

13 O my God, blow them away like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind!

14 As a fire roars through a forest and as a flame sets mountains ablaze,

15 chase them with your fierce storms; terrify them with your tempests.

16 Utterly disgrace them until they submit to your name, O LORD.

17 Let them be ashamed and terrified forever. Make them failures in everything they do,

18 until they learn that you alone are called the LORD, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth. NLT

Zechariah 12:5-6

5 And the governors (Hebrew -Alluphim i.e. generals) of Judah shall say in their heart, 'The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the LORD of hosts, their God.'

6 In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place — Jerusalem. NKJV

Zechariah 12:8-9

8 On that day the LORD will defend the people of Jerusalem; the weakest among them will be as mighty as King David! And the royal descendants will be like God, like the angel of the LORD who goes before them!

9 For my plan is to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. NLT

3. God will pour out His Holy Spirit on Israel imparting grace and prayers of national repentance to the citizens.

Zechariah 12:10-14

"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.

12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves;

13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves;

14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves. NKJV

Every person in Israel must immediately prepare themselves for the following events in the very near future

1. A vicious war will be launched against Israel by all near neighbours

2. A miraculous, supernatural intervention and deliverance will be achieved by God.

3. A revelation will occur concerning the “Angel of the Lord” Messiah.

4. A national recognition of the true Messiah will happen. (Zechariah 12:10)

5. A time of peace and prosperity for Israel will follow. Isaiah 60:1-3

1"Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the LORD is shining upon you.

2 Darkness as black as night will cover all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the LORD will shine over you.

3 All nations will come to your light. Mighty kings will come to see your radiance. NLT

6. A glorious time of national rejoicing will occur. Zephaniah 3:14-17

14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!

15 For the LORD will remove his hand of judgment and will disperse the armies of your enemy. And the LORD himself, the King of Israel, will live among you! At last your troubles will be over, and you will fear disaster no more.

16 On that day the announcement to Jerusalem will be, "Cheer up, Zion! Don't be afraid!

17 For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song." NLT

7. A new, Messianic nation will emerge proclaiming salvation to all nations.

8. The appearance of the ONE NEW MAN who is both Jew and Gentile will eventuate.

Every person on earth should urgently prepare themselves for this imminent and inevitable event that will ultimately impact all the nations on earth. We must earnestly anticipate the event by calling on God for His mercy and grace to grant us salvation.

Isaiah 55:6 Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. NLT

God is about to intervene directly in human affairs. He will judge all nations according to their attitude towards Israel. He will also save all whose hearts are surrendered to Him.

Psalms 79:6-7

6 Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to recognize you — on kingdoms that do not call upon your name.

7 For they have devoured your people Israel, making the land a desolate wilderness. NLT
