Could it be Iran
Could this be it?
Why the Middle East should concern us today.
Measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want. Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. Revelation 11:1-10 New International Version
Does a look at the Middle East today correspond with this Revelation?
Hasn’t the Muslim Brotherhood, which openly states its desire for a complete destruction of Israel, has now taken power in Egypt (with the west’s support).
Iran now has the most sophisticated drone (which it captured from the Sates recently) which can hit any Israeli defense. It recently flew into Israel and took photos of military installations before being shot down. It is now known they will have a nuclear weapon in month’s time, not years. Doesn’t the Koran say a great prophet will arise out of the pit to destroy Israel and Christians? Isn’t that where they where they are building their nuclear bomb?
As well China is sending a missile which destroys aircraft carriers to Iran.
Don’t you think in Syria the Muslim Brotherhood and militant Muslims that seek to destroy Israel are going to take power (with the west’s support)?
Aren’t the Muslim jihads are sending aircraft destroying missiles to the Gaza strip and West Bank and training them how to use them as well as to the Sinai?
Look at a map of the Middle East. Isn’t Israel completely surrounded by hostile forces of Satan drooling for its destruction?
I saw this on The Hal Lindsey Report for 10-21-12(October twenty first 2012)
It certainly looks ominous doesn’t it?
How will the inhabitants of the earth be able to gaze upon the two witnesses? Can’t that be done with the internet and satellite TV?
What I don’t understand is that Jesus was crucified outside of Jerusalem while Sodom is in Jordon. What do you think they mean by figuratively speaking its called Sodom and Egypt?
Could it be that Sodom represents that the people have turned away from God just as the Sodomites did and some headquarters that represents some earthly desire, maybe internet headquarters?
Could Egypt represent slavery? What type of bondage do you think the Israelites have now?
Therefore, could the bodies be placed in front of some place representing where they worship another God and are enslaved to it?
Are we seeing the preparations for the seven woes are warned in Revelation? Are you prepared? Do you believe the rapture could literally happen any moment now?
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” Matthew 24:23 New International Version
Prayer: Please Holy Spirit my teacher; open my eyes to the events that are rapidly hurling us toward the final great battle. Please show me how to open the eyes of those I know and love to the urgency to becoming a member of Your Holy family before it is too late. I ask this in the name of the greatest warrior king, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
