SAUDI ARABIA SAYS LEBANON DECLARES WAR
Prime Minister of Lebanon Saad al-Hariri suddenly announced his resignation as Prime Minister, which was broadcast from Saudi Arabia on Saturday. He said during his speech that he resigned because of a plot to assassinate him. Even his guards were stunned by al-Hariri’s resignation.
Hezbollah, a faction of Shi’ite Muslim terrorists, actually has two ministers in Lebanon’s Parliament and Hezbollah militants are also powerful in Lebanon. It could very well be that al-Hariri feared for his life and anticipates a coup by Hezbollah terrorists, who are allied with Iran.
An Iranian official, Ali Akbar Velayati (Shi’ite), met with al-Hariri in Lebanon and after their meeting, al-Hariri cancelled his appointments and left immediately for Saudi Arabia.
After his meeting with al-Hariri, Velayati then announced from Beirut Iran’s (Shi’ites) victories in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
A number of interesting things have happened suddenly throughout the Middle East simultaneously, which may all be linked together, leading up to a major war of Biblical proportions, fulfilling last days Bible prophecy.
Amidst al-Hariri’s resignation, Houthi Muslim terrorists, Shi’ites and allies of Iran, launched a missile near the capital of Saudi Arabia (Sunni Muslims) from Yemen on Saturday.
Saudis said the missile, which was intercepted, was made in Iran and they see this attack as a declaration of war.
American propagandized media have been publishing reports that Islamic State terrorists are defeated, annihilated in Syria, suggesting we can all calm down now.
As long as Iranian Shi’ite terrorists exist and Hezbollah and other terrorist groups like Houthi Shi’ite Muslims remain alive on the earth, no one in the world is safe. The idea that Muslim terrorists have been defeated to any large degree defies Bible prophecy and it will not happen until Christ returns, after the seven-year great tribulation.
According to Bible prophecy, the antichrist (Muslim Mahdi – messiah) will rise up from a small group, according to Daniel’s prophecies. It is interesting to note that the Shi’ite Muslim terrorists are far outnumbered by the large majority of Sunnis.
According to Islamicweb.com, Shia, or Shi’ite, Muslims are about 7.5 – 11 percent of the Muslim population, so mostly Sunni and a few other small factions make up the remaining 89 – 92.5 percent.
The Prophet Daniel wrote this about the antichrist of the last days:
“After the league (a seven-year peace treaty – a Biblical “week”) made with him, he shall work deceitfully, for he shall come up and shall become strong with a small people” Daniel 11:23 (emphasis added).
The antichrist will come to power in the last days with a “small” people, according to Daniel’s prophecy.
How do we know that the antichrist is the Muslim Mahdi (messiah)?
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads, that no man might buy or sell, except he who has the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding county the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, sixty-six” Revelation 13:16-18 (emphasis added). (The beast (antichrist) will establish a cashless society and only those bearing his “mark” will be able to buy or sell.)
“I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given unto them, and I saw the souls of them who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” Revelation 20:4 (emphasis added). (Those who refuse the “mark” of the “beast” will be “beheaded.”)
Who “beheads” people? Muslims, Muslims, MUSLIMS!
Iranian, Hezbollah and Houthi Shi’ites are stirring up strife right now in the Middle East and they are among the relatively small group of Shi’ites, but they are also very strong, so we need to keep our eyes on the situation.
According to Bible prophecy, we are definitely living in the last days, so what is happening now could be very significant prophetically.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.
