Today, we have some breaking news that has been making headlines around the world. Palestinian nationalist group, Hamas, has launched thousands of rockets into the Jewish state as of the morning of October 7th, 2023. It’s a situation that has been causing a great deal of concern today. So, let’s dive right into it.
This recent development in the ongoing conflict between Hamas and what they view as an illegal occupant of Jerusalem, the State of Israel. Despite the presence of the impenetrable Iron Dome defense system, Hamas has fired a barrage of rockets into Israel, with reports of at least 100 dead as a result of the ongoing violence. This has led to a heightened state of tension and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declaring that we are at war.
This morning’s events are the most severe in decades, and come about after more than 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in 2023 alone. It is a deeply concerning escalation that has the potential to further destabilize the region. “Our enemy will pay a price the type of which it has never known,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.
Those versed in Bible prophecy believe today [October 7, 2023] is the official launch of the battle of Armageddon foretold of in Joel chapter 3, when God will return the Israelites who have been scattered around the world via the Slave trade back Home to their Land.
“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” (Joel 3:1-2)
This poses a serious problem for Israelis and is the source of conflict between Hamas and the Jewish State. In addition to recognizing their own Semitism, Palestinians are aware that the Jewish people are not
the Children of Israel: “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24). As such, Israelis have no legitimate claim to the Land of Israel or justification for the forced violent, bloody removal of 750,000 Palestinians to create the Jewish State
in 1948. It is only the financial, military, and political support from the West that makes this gross violation of international law
The God of the Bible promises in Joel 3:7 that in the End Times, he will raise up his Chosen People from the places where they were sold and are presently located, as well as punish those who conspired to destroy the Israelites and steal their Identity (Psalms 83:3-5). In other words, the Battle of Armageddon and the Day of the Lord
are about the God of Israel luring the Western nations responsible for destroying true Israel and scattering them via slavery down into the “valley of decision” (Joel 3:14), to exact judgement upon them for their heinous crimes.
“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:”; “Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.” (Joel 3:9 &11-13)
As a result of the injustice and on-going abuses of true Israel, God is destroying the old system of Western dominance, and instituting a New World Order after he dethrones the old world powers at the return of Christ
. These enemies of God are being gathered to Israel to battle the Lord.
“For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.” (Zechariah 14:2-3)
The Israelis are at the center of Judgement because, they are who is referred to as the “Synagogue of Satan” in Revelations 2:9 and 3:9 due to their false claim of being the People of God. They and their Western co-conspirators will be defeated in the Valley of Jehosaphat, “And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.” (Zechariah 14:9)
