Lots to watch in 2015 in regard to prophecy… And.Lots of Questions…
What will happen with the current situation in the Ukraine? Russia is clearly an endtimes player that scholars believe is spoken of in Ezekiel 38. Will the present oil crisis they are experiencing be the impetus to make them continue to exert their aggressive nature?
What about Turkey? Several years ago the nation of Turkey had a good relationship with Israel. Now, since the coming to power of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, the country’s tone seems to have taken a very hostile turn.
Who will win the election in Israel this year? The national election in Israel is slated for March 17th. Will staunch conservative, Benjamin Netanyahu, win the election and stay in power? Or will his main rival, Isaac Herzog, win?
It seems like the Obama presidential election team has set up camp in Tel Aviv with the mission to defeat Netanyahu in the upcoming election for prime minister. Is Barack Obama working behind the scenes in Israel to prevent Netanyahu from being re-elected? If so, how much of a price will the United States pay for its cursing of God’s chosen people, Israel, yet again (see Genesis 12:3)?
“The “Anyone but Bibi” mission is headed by Jeremy Bird, Obama’s National Field Director in his successful presidential campaigns.
Under Bird, a group called “Victory 15” has been set up. It has recruited the young activists from Israel’s 2013 social protest movement and will man a massive social network and personal contact campaign to defeat Bibi. V15 is financed by an NGO called “One Voice” whose motto is to be “the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians.” Research finds that One Voice is funded by John Kerry’s State Department.”
If someone else is elected, will the solar eclipse on March 20th portend rough waters for Israel in the future with Herzog in power?
Many biblical scholars believe that the anti-christ will be someone with a Jewish background. If a new president is elected in Israel, could he be the one?
What about Iran, another end time player (Persia) in Ezekiel 38? Will Obama give away everything to make a bad deal with Iran and cause the Gog – Magog war to begin?
I, and many of others have reason to believe that we very close to the day of the Rapture of the Church.
With Yom Kippur 2015 coming 49 prophetic years (a jubilee) to the day after the re-claiming of Jerusalem by the nation of Israel (on June 7th, 1967), it sure seems like it could happen this year. Or something significant could take place regarding Israel that has a major impact on the Great Tribulation beginning soon.
I still have no reason to believe that the Rapture will take place before Brother Billy Graham is called home. The one and only time I have heard the Lord’s audible voice was in 2008 when I felt that I heard Him tell me, “Shortly after I call Billy Graham home, I will come for my people”. I want to emphasize that this was an experience that I personally had. In all of my beliefs and when speaking to people about my faith and my eschatological writings I emphasize the concept of “Sola Scriptura”, or Scripture alone. By this I mean that my doctrine is founded on what I read in the Bible, and not any experiential event . But, just as there were people on earth when the Lord came the first time who were told they would not die before seeing Him, I believe that it is certainly possible that He can give us personal revelation on His second coming, also.
So, stay tuned, and Maranatha!
