  • Bill Colborn
    The most pertinent chapter to current world events. Research the names and put modern faces on the countries coming against Israel, and you will see the alliance is pretty much there. Keep an eye on Turkey: they will break from NATO and join the Russia/Iran Alliance.

    Verse 21~In the past, Jehovah God has used the wicked to destroy the wicked. He can cause the same to happen again. His enemies will turn against one another.

    Rusty; Did you know that Russia and Iran are RIGHT NOW positioned on Israel's Golan border? and NO NEWS COVERAGE! Also, the things going on in the East: "Tidings from the East shall trouble him, and he shall go forth in a fury to utterly make away many...and arms shall stand on his part... and he shall devise devices and cause craft to prosper; (etc.)? Lord Jesus keep us all safe and come soon!
