The Middle East has been in turmoil for as long as anyone can remember dating back to the time of Isaac and Ishmael. It’s never been an easy place. Today, much angst points to the nation of Israel, as the world makes unrelenting demands for God’s chosen people to trade land for peace.
According to Daniel and the last book of the Bible, a charismatic figure will rise and do what no other world leader has been able to do: Negotiate peace in the Middle East and secure Israel’s safety. It will be a temporary peace before hell unleashes its final fury on God’s chosen people.
Keep your eye on the Eastern sky and pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).
