The Coming War in the Middle East Draws Closer

The United Nations is preparing to vote on a Palestinian state. It's no coincidence that war posturing is taking place. The question is, who will strike first, Iran or Israel. The president of Iran said that the proof that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon is that Israel still exists!  Psalm 83 and Obadiah discuss the unholy alliances surrounding Israel as well as Gaza and the West Bank. The war is going to focus on Jerusalem.  It will be a massive war in which nuclear weapons are going to be used (Ezekiel 38-39). "This war is going to be so devastating that the world is going to think it was Armageddon. It is going to be centered around Jerusalem while entire Arab nations with millions of people are about to die. John states in Revelation that the world economy is going to break. In the midst of this chaos and war the anti-christ will rise and broker peace. The church will be raptured at that point. Will you be raptured as well?
