The War Against Terrorism – Where is it Going
It’s too early to fully know, but it is not Armageddon, which will not occur in Iraq, but in the Israel in the Valley of Megiddo also known as the Valley of Jezreel, at the conclusion of the Seven Year Tribulation.
Today it is a very beautiful area of farmland, but when Israel took over the land after 1948, it was nothing but swampland, which they drained and turned into farmland.
While this war will not lead to Armageddon, it is a war that will stir up passions in the Islamic world to lead to war against Israel. Saddam wanted to pull Israel into this current conflict, but we took out his airbases and missiles in the beginning so that it was not possible and Israel was spared. Yet this war will lead to Ezekiel 38-39.
Turkey will play a major role in the end-times. In Daniel chapter 2 there is the image in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. The two legs that branched off represented the two branches of the Roman Empire; Rome, Italy and Constantinople, Turkey. When the Roman Empire split, it split religiously.<
Constantine had built and made Constantinople the second Rome. Then there was the split between the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches in the 10th-11th century. It was a East-West split, politically and spiritually. For about 1000 years the Turkish Empire was very strong and from 1517-1917 the Ottoman Turkish Empire controlled Israel, Northern Africa and southern Russian states. In fact, they were the ones who rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem to fulfill the prophecy of Isaiah 60:10 that strangers would rebuild the walls of the city.
In 1917 the British took over Palestine from the Turkish Empire and that led to the re-establishment of modern Israel. The threat that Turkey feels is from the Kurds in Northern Iraq. The Kurds are the ancient Medes from the Medo-Persian Empire in Daniel’s time. They took over the Empire from the grandson of Nebuchadnezzar, Belteshazzar. The Kurds are the Ancient Medes, 4 million in Iraq and a total of some 20 million around the Iraq and the surrounding territory, including some in Turkey. They want to form their own country in North Iraq.
There is a Mosque in Karbala, Iraq. There Allie, the grandson of Mohammed was killed with 70 followers. The Shiite Muslims believed that he was the true heir of Mohammed. The Sunnis believer it was someone else. There are three main groups in Iran, mostly Shiite, the Sunni (of which Saddam was) and Kurd.
The Shiite’s in the south have accepted the U.S. troops more than the others, but it has to do with their concept of the Mahdi, who will come to power and take over the world. They believe this man will come out of Iraq.
Karbala, where much of the fighting is taking place was a part of Babylon and the Assyrian empire. The Shiites want us to liberate Iraq so they can expand their territory from the south to the north area of Karbala. During Saddam’s reign, he went into their area and killed thousands of them at a time.
There is also about a million Chaldean Christians in Iraq and Saddam was raised in such a home, but that doesn’t make one a Christian. Saddam was lenient on the Chaldean Christians and protected them from the radical Muslims and these Christians are very worried now and are being attacked by these terrorists.
The terrorists from outside Iraq are trying to send all these fanatical Muslims and suicide bombers into Iraq so they can settle into these areas to make terrorist attacks. These people who have declared that they are going there for this very purpose need to be sent to their final destination before they can blow themselves up and take others with them. You don’t have to be a warmonger to believe that there is a time and place to stand up for what is right and to defend the innocent. Even God’s Word declares there is a time for war (Ecclesiastes 3:8).<
Anyone who is a murderer and thinks they will go to heaven or paradise is deceived by devils and on their way to a devil’s hell for their wickedness. Murdering others, innocent people can never be godly or holy or righteous. Now there is a great difference between men choosing to kill and murder others for their own evil motives and desires and because of their hatred and God choosing to judge and destroy a people, as Sodom and Gomorrah for their evil and wickedness, because He is God and He has the power and right to judge men, but we do not. Judgment belongs to God! Vengeance belongs to God! Life and death belong to God and when we take the life of others in a wicked way, as the terrorists do, we play God. That is what they are doing.
Before it is over we will hear more horrible things come out of Iraq, of the horrible atrocities committed by Saddam and his sons during his reign; killing, maiming, torturing in torture chambers, gassing, and murdering those in his country that were not of his religious group.
This war is without doubt a prophetic war that is leading the way to other events that are Biblical prophecy. Some are saying that this war just made things worse and opened the door for more terrorism. Osama bin Laden had declared war on America many years before and was already waging that war against us and planning more, long before we decided to get involved in the war and start fighting back and defending ourselves, which included going after them overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq.<
We didn’t start the war, we didn’t do anything to them to cause 9/11/2002 or any of the other attacks against America and not having gone to Iraq would make no difference where terrorism against America is concerned. It is nonsense to say after the many attacks against us that if we didn’t go to Iraq they wouldn’t be planning more attacks against us. You cannot win by placating them and giving in to their demands, you can only become their slaves and hostages. You can’t negotiate with these terrorists, they do not think and speak or deal in rational ways, they are under the control of demonic spirits and fully given to these spirits of hatred and murder. They will do anything for their cause; there is nothing sacred or holy to them, but Allah and their religion. So they will lie, steal, cheat, kill and commit any atrocity in the name of Allah and it is justified and holy because they play god.<
The only hope for any of them is deliverance by the Power of God, and surely some Muslims are being brought out of this darkness and deception into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ, but few by percentage. The hatred they have against both Israel and America is a spirit of antichrist. It is a hatred of all people of the book or Bible, both Jews who follow the Old Testament and Christians who follow the entire Bible. The Koran is full of hate against both groups, telling the Muslim faithful to make no friends with Christians and Jews, but to kill them or make them slaves. I will be posting material and verses from the Koran showing this as time permits.<
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 tells us that God is restraining this spirit of antichrist, until the time in which he will be revealed. Then things will happen quickly to fulfill Biblical prophecy and the man of sin is revealed.<
2 Timothy 3:13 - “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” Things are not going to get better, but worse and worse, God said because of the evil in men’s hearts.<
This will happen until the end when Jesus returns and end this time this period of men’s history and fulfills “thy wrath is come… that they should be judged… and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” That is what the Muslims are working toward; destroying all that will not bow to their demon moon god - Allah. God told us that they would be against all men. In Genesis 16:12 God prophesied of Ishmael and his descendents; “And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Today, they dwell everywhere, in every country and in Israel. Why should we be surprised that God’s Word is correct about them and all things that are happening today and that will happen until Jesus comes and ends all the insanity of wickedness of men who hate God and hate His Son, Jesus.
