ensions keep building throughout the world, but this is a direct statement of what is certain to occur at some point – another war in the Middle East involving Israel. Estimates of Hezbollah’s stockpiled rockets range up to 150,000 and when fighting breaks out, they will be directed straight at Israel. How could such a conflict be anything except ferocious?
Because we know the word of God, we know how it will end, and that’s with the destruction of Hezbollah. Prophecy makes it clear that all of the nations surrounding Israel who come against it will suffer defeat. That’s been true of every conflict in which Israel has been engaged since its founding as a state. God is faithful and will fulfill his word, so there’s no doubt how future conflicts ultimately will end.
But the Islamic nations and terrorist groups who view Jerusalem as the ultimate prize won’t rest until they try to take it since they don’t believe in God’s Word, the Bible. Because of that, they’re going to pay a heavy toll because prophecy will be fulfilled. The concern is that if war begins it will spiral into world war 3, because that is coming as well. It won’t be Armageddon, but it will be devastating.
