Current events in the Middle East (April 13th, 2018)

If you’ve been keeping up with events happening around the world and specifically in the Middle East, you’ll find that many prophetically significant events are stacking up as the region is in turmoil. If you’re not keeping up then this article is for you as it’s a good resource for articles and videos on events that have been occurring for the past couple of weeks.  Before moving on, there are 3 main prophecies that are currently being focused on regarding recent events in the Middle East and specifically, Israel (Jerusalem): Zechariah 12, Isaiah 17, and Ezekiel 38.

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it”, (Zechariah 12:2-3)

“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap…Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us”, (Isaiah 17:1, 12-14)

“And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee”, (Ezekiel 38:1-6)

Zechariah 12 is about God using Jerusalem as a stumbling block to the nations that attempt to break her apart or destroy her. Isaiah 17 is a prophecy concerning the future destruction of Damascus, Syria. Ezekiel 38 talks about a future coalition of nations that will make war against Israel but will be defeated by God himself.
