Is it the destiny of Europe to become more actively involved in the Middle East as events hurtle toward the climactic return of Jesus Christ? Will it begin to exercise a strong influence in the region of, and even militarily occupy, the Holy Land? Your Bible plainly affirms that this will be the case.
An interesting Euobserver.com article titled, “EU faces ‘last chance’ for peace in Israel”, offers an insight into what may be the beginnings of a more crucial role for Europe in the Middle East. In the article, Mr. Meir Margalit, a Jerusalem city councilor on the front lines of the mid-east peace process, states: “We have reached the last moment when it is still possible to divide and share Jerusalem. If it [decisive action] does not happen this year, it will become impossible to implement any plan like the two-state solution.” (emphasis mine) The leadership of Jerusalem is imploring the European Union to get involved in the political and geographical division of Jerusalem...
If this truly is the “last chance” for Jerusalem being divided into a Palestinian/Israeli state, and the hand of the European Union does stretch to exert “influence” in the region of Jerusalem, we are most certainly in momentous times, for the Bible speaks of a time when God says He “…will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity…” (Zechariah 14:2, emphasis mine).
Take note of what is being said – half of Jerusalem’s inhabitants will be taken, and led away, into captivity. Other prophecies clearly state that captivity is coming for the modern day descendants of ancient Israel as well. You need to understand the identity of who these modern-day peoples are. The answer may shock you!
The armies gathered together, surrounding Jerusalem just before Christ’s return, will fight against Him in what men call the battle of Armageddon.
To learn more about this exciting yet terrifying battle to occur in Jerusalem in the final climactic world war, and to find out what you can do to protect yourself from the terror that is to come, read Armageddon and Beyond and continue to watch events unfold in the mid-east powder keg!
