Less than 24 hours ago, a U.S. airstrike killed a top Iranian general. Since then, the top trending hashtags on Twitter have been #WorldWar3, #WorldWarIII, #WWIII, #WW3, and #Iran. People who don’t even follow conflicts in the Middle East are all of a sudden experts on the region, and predicting that this will lead to the War to end all wars. In this article, I will explain why they are wrong in their assumptions driven by fear.
Most liberals and Democrats are actually upset by President Trump’s authorization to take out the murderous Islamist general. Terrorist-sympathizer and U.S. Congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, said she was “outraged” by the President’s “assassination” of Major General Qassim Suleimani. Just another reason why anti-Semitic Omar needs to be removed from Congress – along with her Palestinian terrorist-sympathizer pal, Rashida Tlaib. Their hatred for Israel, Jews, Christians, and the fabric of our Country is grossly unAmerican; and any of my fellow citizens that voted for either of these women should be ashamed.
Suleimani was taken out by a drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq, early Friday morning. It’s unbelievable how many liberal Americans, with seemingly no education on the Israel/America vs. Iran conflict, are actually apologizing to Iran’s regime for the elimination of the general. They actually had “Dear Iran” trending, tweeting their condolences and “we’re sorry.” It reminded me of former President Obama’s apology tours to the Islamic world. God help us if another Dem like him assumes power as President.
What the libs fail to understand is that Suleimani was a TERRORIST.
He was the head of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and the architect behind nearly every significant attack against the United States or Israel by Iranian forces or proxies over the past 20 years. He has called for the destruction of both Israel and America on numerous occasions. Just last year, he said, “The Islamic Republic has prepared the capability to annihilate Israel, and Israel must be wiped off the world’s geographic history.”
He has ordered many of the rocket attacks by Islamic terror groups on innocent Israelis, carried out by Hezbollah in Lebanon or by Islamic Jihad in Palestine. His death makes the world a safer place. He caused nothing but death, and he lived by the sword. Therefore, no one should be morning his death by the sword. He shed the blood of thousands, and now his blood has been shed in return. He got exactly what he deserved.
Iran’s leadership wasted no time in issuing public threats to America and our greatest Ally, Israel, following the death of the general. President Hassan Rouhani said, “The great nation of Iran will take revenge for this heinous crime.” And Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Ayatollah Khamenei warned that a “harsh retaliation is waiting.” Anyone who is sending condolences to the Iranian regime needs to learn about just who they are speaking to. The regime publicly calls for “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” every single year.
Because of the obvious ignorance of many of my fellow Americans concerning Iran, the Middle East region, and what the Holy Bible says about World War 3, I thought now would be a great time to educate them. I have written extensively about these subjects in all 3 of my books. Here are just a few excerpts…
First, from my book, “The Signs of Our TImes: 12 Biblical Reasons Why This Could Be the Generation of the Rapture” –
Since Israel’s rebirth in 1948, there have been around 1,400 terror attacks – leaving about 3,500 dead and injuring over 14,000 innocent Israelis. Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad terrorists are all proxies of Israel’s biggest enemy on the world stage: IRAN. These terror groups receive their weapon arsenals directly from Iran. The Islamic regime in Tehran is the largest funder of terrorism globally. If we ever want to truly win the “War on Terror,” and destroy the deadly serpent which has been threatening our world, then we must cut off the serpent’s head – which is unquestionably Iran.
The Iranians have stationed the terror groups that I mentioned strategically on the borders of Israel. They receive their marching orders from the Ayatollahs, and serve as hired hands of the anti-Israel regime. The close proximity of these groups to the Jewish State allows Iran to make war on Israel, without having the two nations actually engaged in direct conflict. Iran knows – full well – that they would lose a one-on-one war with Israel.
Iran is undoubtedly the number one modern enemy of Israel. The Ayatollahs have been itching to go to war with Israel for decades. The Islamic regime’s leaders have long threatened to “blow Israel off the map.” The supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khameni, was even bold enough to reveal, in a televised speech, that Iran’s reason for participating in the “Nuclear Deal” with world powers was “not for eventual peace.” Khameni said that the long drawn out talks were, instead, an opportunity to “build up Iran’s nuclear arsenal to use against Israel soon.”
Iran’s so-called “moderate” President, Hassan Rouhani, also publicly calls for the “destruction of Israel.” Even after signing the horrible Nuclear Deal, with former President Obama and world leaders, the Ayatollah and Rouhani were chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel” on live TV.
In the Book of Ezekiel, God warns that “Persia” (which is modern-day Iran) would be one of the most threatening enemies of Israel in the Latter Days. Another Biblical prophecy about Iran (found in Ezekiel 32:24), that has come to pass in our generation, says that the nation would be an exporter of terror. Today, the Islamic regime is the biggest exporter of terrorism worldwide – especially against Israel.
World War 3 will be the war to end all wars, and it is known to Bible believers as the “Battle of Armageddon.” The war will be fought at Megiddo in Israel’s Jezreel Valley. Virtually all nations of the world will come against God’s Chosen Nation.
When all hope seems lost for the tiny Jewish State, and their destruction seems imminent, that is when their Messiah will make His long-awaited return to the Holy Land to destroy their enemies. Of course, their Messiah is our Lord Jesus Christ. This war will be the culmination of the 7-Year Tribulation period on the earth, and the AntiChrist will lead the charge against Israel. Being Satan incarnate, he will actually attempt to fight against Lord Jesus – but is swiftly defeated and cast into “the lake of fire” (Revelation 19).
Holy Bible-believing Christians will not be here for the 7-Year Tribulation, because we will be raptured well before Armageddon begins. I believe the Latter-Day wars that Jesus was referring to in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, are any wars post-1948; and especially the future “Psalm 83” and “Gog-Magog” wars. The Psalm 83 War is obviously described in Psalm 83, while the Gog-Magog War can be found in the Book of Ezekiel, Chapters 38 and 39.
Both wars, like the Battle of Armageddon, are attempts by nations of the world to obliterate the Nation of Israel. We read in Psalm 83:4-5, “They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a Nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against you.” Those last five words refer to all of the Islamic nations that are mentioned in the Psalm forming a confederacy to make war on the Jewish State.
The confederacy resembles that of the nations that came against Israel in the Six-Day War of 1967. Yet, in the Psalm 83 War, the Arab nations who border and surround Israel will be joined by virtually all Islamic nations in the Middle East and Africa. Just like in 1967, the Bible tells us that they will fail and that Israel will have another miraculous military victory. I believe that the defeat of the Muslim armies will lead those nations to cry out to Russia, who is allied with most of Israel’s enemies in the Middle East, and this will lead to the Gog-Magog War.
In my previous book, I pointed out how Russia is currently closely allied with the exact nations that Ezekiel prophesied it would be in the war. Specifically, Iran (Persia) and Turkey (Togarmah) are two of Russia’s closest friends on the world stage today. Ezekiel names them as the two closest military allies of Russia in his prophecy. This nearly 3,000-year-old Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled perfectly before our very eyes.
The Gog-Magog War is fought on “the mountains of Israel,” which would most likely be on the border of Syria in the Golan Heights region. It is beyond interesting to note that, as we speak, Russia has military boots on the ground in the Golan Heights to protect their interests in Syria. It is not far-fetched to think that a flare-up between the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) and the Syrian army could claim the lives of Russians stationed in the area. I believe that could provoke Vladimir Putin of Russia to consider military action against the Jewish State.
Russia has made numerous public threats against Israel over the course of the past decade, which leads me to believe that the Gog-Magog War is at the doors. In 2012, Russia warned that an Israeli attack on Tehran (Iran’s Capital) would be an attack on Moscow (Russia’s Capital). The warning implied that a war between Israel and Iran would lead to Russia fighting alongside the Iranians (just as Ezekiel had prophesied). We all know how much the President of Turkey hates Israel, so it’s easy to envision the Turks joining forces with the Iranians and Russians.
In 2017, a senior commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “Over one hundred thousand missiles located across the Middle East are ready to strike Israel at a moment’s notice.” Iran’s leaders have long called for the destruction of the Jewish State – from the Supreme Leader to the President, and right on down the line. They all desire for Israel to be “wiped off the map.” In a 2018 video of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps military drills, as the soldiers chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America,” a depiction of the White House and the Star of David were both split by a sword.
Besides Russia and Iran, the Israelis could much sooner see war with Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip of Palestine and Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon. In the 2014 war with Hamas, 5,000 rockets were fired into Israel; and in the 2006 war with Hezbollah, the terrorists launched 4,000 of them into the Jewish State.
“And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” – REVELATION 16:16
Armageddon… this is the one word, known to believers and unbelievers alike, that is most synonymous with the End Times. What took me by surprise, in my research, is that there is much more to the Battle of Armageddon than I had ever thought. I had always just assumed that the nations would gather in Megiddo to come against Israel, and ultimately against Almighty God, and that they would be destroyed by our Lord in that place. It turns out that the war to end all wars is actually fought in multiple locations! This came as a big surprise to me. Sites of the final battle between Antichrist’s armies and our Lord and His armies are Babylon, Jerusalem, Bozrah in Jordan, and Megiddo.
What I have come to discover is that the least amount of physical confrontation between the Lord’s people and the armies of Antichrist actually takes place in Megiddo (Armageddon), and that it serves as more of a staging area for the coalition of nations that take up arms alongside Antichrist and his army. The name Armageddon stems from the Hebrew “Har Megiddo,” which means Mount Megiddo. It is a relatively small mountainous area located in the Jezreel Valley of Israel, southeast of Haifa.
If we take a look back at Chapter 16, where Armageddon is mentioned, we find that demonic spirits are sent forth from the mouths of the Satanic trinity – the dragon (Satan), the Antichrist (Satan’s son), and the False Prophet (religious leader) – unto the kings “of the whole world.” These spirits influence the world leaders to gather together at Megiddo (in Israel) for “the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” What message could have been sent to these kings that would lead them all to come against the Jewish State?
I believe that the Two Witnesses being resurrected, and taken into Heaven in the sight of the entire world, will be a major blow to the kingdom of Antichrist. We read in Chapter 11 that the Jews of Jerusalem who survived the great earthquake, which followed the ascension of the Two Witnesses, gave glory to the God of their fathers (YHWH). This will cause the Jews to see the Antichrist for what he truly is, a false god who represents Satan. As they preach this truth unto their fellow Jews of Israel, who will easily believe after recently witnessing Antichrist commit the abomination of desolation inside the Holy of Holies in their Temple, Antichrist will set out to destroy them all.
Thus, the message that I believe is sent out to the nations of the world will be a grossly anti-Semitic one. It will sound reminiscent of a speech by Adolf Hitler. Through the demonic spirits, Satan will speak the lie that the Jews are the reason for all of the catastrophes that have befallen the earth throughout the course of the past seven years. Antichrist will say that it is because they continue to worship “the false god” (referring to YHWH and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ) why the world has been plagued with sores, darkness, earthquakes, cosmic chaos, and historic disasters. In order to restore peace, calm, and normalcy to planet Earth, the Jews and their Nation (Israel) must be dealt with swiftly. The kings of the earth will buy in to the lies.
Once the nations of the world are gathered together in Megiddo, the Antichrist will meet them there with his armies. Now, remember when I said that I thought the literal Babylon of the Middle East would be the headquarters of the Antichrist, and that it would fall in the near future? I believe, at this time, that prophecy will be fulfilled. Because the Antichrist takes all of his firepower and military defenses out of his home base to make war on the Jews in Israel, it leaves the door wide open for his enemies to come in and destroy Babylon like the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah prophesied thousands of years ago.
There is so much more that I write about the Battle of Armageddon, known today as World War 3, in my new book. Obviously, I cannot share the entire chapter in this article. That was just a snippet to show you all that much more needs to take place before the War to end all wars will occur.
I believe that the killing of the Iranian general is just another event leading up to the Gog-Magog War which I spoke of in my first two books. That war will be pre-Rapture. The Battle of Armageddon does not take place until the 7-Year Tribulation period – AFTER the Rapture of the Church.
So, if the recent headlines and your uneducated liberal friends have been scaring you with their talk about World War 3, you have nothing to fear! It is not coming YET. There is still time to repent and get right with God, through Christ Jesus, before that great day of the LORD comes. Repent NOW. Come to Jesus NOW. Tomorrow could be too late if you miss the Rapture.
To learn much more about what the Holy Bible says will happen in the End Times, you can grab all of my books on Amazon or Barnes & Noble today. You can even grab all three of them under one cover in “The TRILOGY.” Don’t be left behind!
