 Setting Up The Stage Of Conflict    

This is a very relevant topic. Hearing about talks on pushing for peace. The immediate answer is Yes and No. We will explore the truths behind this answer. There will never be a quick resolve on the conflicts of the Middle East, until the antichrist who will rise into power, who will bring a resolve, but it will be shortly lived. Just like any quick resolutions of the past, is shortly lived. And during that time Jesus will come to put an end to these and future conflict’s, forever. There is something more, if you Look behind the scenes, there is a force behind these conflicts. In this blog we’ll be dealing with the “No” side of the answer. As we have recently explored the Truth stated in:

Mathew 24:6&7

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nations will rise against Nations, and Kingdoms against kingdoms.”

This undeniable truth, that Jesus Himself had stated, is happening today. That is how relevant the Holy Word of God is for us today. This statement, (that is to the point), cut at the throat and heart of all in the world, and of the world, the absolute answer. And to truly understand how these conflicts that we are seeing today began, you must first understand Jewish history. For Jewish history will not only show how these conflict’s have started, but also why they are happening today. I will only give a brief overview. I encourage you to read these chapters below for yourself.

Genesis 3 (The fall Of man)

Genesis 9:18-29 (The curse of Noahs son, Ham)

Genesis 10 (A Genealogy of the Middle Eastern Nations). We find that Ham begot the sons of these nations: Cush, Mizraim, Put and Canaan. For these were the name of his sons. (The Curse of Noah’s Son, Ham).(The Fall of Man). (referring to: “Sign’s Of The End Times Part 4”).

And his sons established these nations:

Assyria; Egypt, Somaliland and; (Israel, Canaan before God made a covenant with Abraham; Issiac, and Jacob.)

Hams grandsons established the regions of:

Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey, Philistia; (Palastine, Gaza Stripe), Crete. Parts of Lebenon, Syria, and Trans Jordan, (which is Jordan today).

Next major events in Jewish history,

Genesis 12 & Genesis 15:18-21 (The Covenant between God and Abraham), Which was also reaffirmed in Genesis 22:15-18

In Genesis 16 (The ill begotten son). Because of Sarah’s unbelief of the covenant, Sarah, who could not give Abraham children at that time ( for she was Barren). She gave Abraham her maid servant (Hagar). And Hagar gave birth to a son named Ishmael. But Ishmael is not the promised son of the covenant (even though he his technically the first born, through Abraham and Hagar, not with Abraham and Sarah. So Ishmael begot this nation, Saudi Arabia, (in which they claim that they descended from Ishmael, and which is most likely true). But because of God Almighty of Heaven, who created all mankind. His Sovereignty, Mercy, and Grace. His Loving kindness, His Right Judgments, and His deep delight in all His creation, He promised Hagar (Ishmael’s Mother) This:

Genesis 16:10 -12

“The angel added, ‘I will so increase your descendants that they will be too numerous to count.’ The Angel of the Lord also said to her, ‘You are now with child and you will have a son. You shall name him Ishmael (,which means: God hears), for the Lord has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and every ones hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers, (neighbors.)

Ishmael’s sons:

Nebioth, Kedar, Abdeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad/ or Hadar, Tema, Jeture, Naphish Kedemah.

Nations established by his sons:

Predominantly, Saudi Arabia,, but also the Persian Gulf. Interesting enough, Mohammed (the Founder of the Muslims) claimed, Ishmael as his ancestor.

Historical Conflicts

Now we know some of the back ground on the conflicts that are happening in the Middle East today, that’s been happening for literally thousands of years. In Jewish history, which is an undeniable fact that it is relevant yesterday as well as today, the boiling point had began through the millennia’s of persecution of the Jews. Take for example:

Exodus 1:11-22

“So they (,The Egyptians,) put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh. But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites and worked them ruthlessly. They made their lives bitter with hard labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their hard labor the Egyptians used them ruthlessly.The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth and observe them on the delivery stool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?” The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.”So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. And because the midwives feared God, He gave them families of their own. Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

Joseph had past away. And Egypt had long forgotten how merciful God Almighty, (Creator of heaven and earth and the sea’s; and everything in them), really was toward all the land of Egypt, as well as all the world in those days, during a 7 year famine, Where God had positioned Joseph, who was put into position of power directly under Pharaoh, where God had given Joseph wisdom to store, and to ration food for the famine years, where literally all the world was fed with plenty. Genesis 41 Exodus 1:8-14, (Egypt putting the Jews into forced labor. 430 years of bondage and slavery in Egypt.)

Exodus 1:15-22, (mass killing of Jewish born males). At this time where Exodus 1:11-22, picks up, the Jewish nation living under pharaoh freely, and being too numerous, Egypt had decided to kill all the new born Jewish males. (Simply because they were too numerous and Egypt was afraid. Hieroglyphs are found in Egypt that documents the slave labor of Jews, as well as the fear, that griped all of Egypt for twenty years after the parting of the Red Sea. The Jewish Exodus.) Even the past hundred years. In 1940-45 Hitler had ordered all the Jews to be put into concentrations camps all over Europe. Millions of Jews were slaughtered and treated in, inhuman ways, under the direction of Hitler & Pope Pius the seventh. Hitler’s goals was to create an Aryan race. An Aryan nation, (and Israel were simply in the way, in Hitler’s mind), even though Hitler was half Jewish. But Because of the mercy of God and of His Covenant with His treasured possessions, (the Jews), He kept a remnant, and Israel became a Nation once and for all, in 1948. And that’s when the boiling point had rose.

I’ll try to keep this short and to the point. In 1948-49, (The War Of Independence, In Israel). 1948, National Israel had become officially a Nation once and for all time. Arab military forces began invading Israel on may 15th. Arab forces consisted of Egyptian, Iraqi, Transjordan, Syrian, Lebanese, Saudi Arabian and Yemeni Forces, who tried to stop Israel.

In 1956, (The Sinai War).                                                                                                                                  

In 1967, (The Six Day War). Several weeks of growing tension between Egypt and Israel. They both had met on the Sinai border. Israel had won this war in 6 days.

In 1973, (The Yom Kippur War).

1978 and in 1982-2000, (The Invasion of Lebanon).

1960-1980, (Terrorist attacks).

1981, (Iraq Nuclear Reactor).

1987-1993, (The Intifada War).

This is why, that there is no quick resolution because these conflicts has been going on for thousands of years. and they are increasing, just like birth pain of soon to be mother, is about to give birth.

The Agenda

Iran with Syria is now becoming a growing problem for Israel. The leaders of Iran refuses to acknowledge Israel exists, and yet they clearly had stated their agenda in this quote “Israel must be wiped off, from the map of the world.” For this is the spirit of antichrist that is at work. This is the most blunt antisemetic statement of all times. This is another case, in this year, that clearly shows, that Israel has been attacked & targeted from Biblical times up to the now. There is no other Nation who has been in more wars, in all of the world, at any given time, than Israel. All this has been setting up the stage of conflicts today, and in the future, to the ultimate war, Armageddon.

Mathew 24: 21

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been seen since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

And in: Revelation 16:11

“And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, ‘Armageddon.”(Megiddo.)

Megiddo is an actual place in Israel, Geographically, it is a vast valley that could literally hold all the armies of the world at one time.

Revelation 19:19

“And I saw the beast, the king of the earth (,the devil & the antichrist), and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse (,Jesus the Christ,) and against His army.”

But ultimately, who is behind these growing opposition in the middle east? The answer is found in:

Ephesians 6:11-12

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the day of evil, and having done all to stand.”

And why is the devil bringing opposition and conflict to the world? For a couple of reasons. he hates God Almighty, Jesus the Christ, The Son of God, and His Holy Spirit. he Hates you. he hates me. he hates the Jews, and the covenant God has made with man through the Jews. And absolutely he hates Christians. he is setting up the stage for the antichrist. For satan is creating a flood of world problems in order for the antichrist to rise, bringing an ultimate solution that will deceive many. he will pose himself in the flesh as God in that day. Because God can only fix these problems, right?
