 The Nations Uniting against Israel

Signals the End of the World


 

Several ancient Bible prophecies about Israel and Jerusalem have already come true in recent decades, including the foretold restoration of the Jewish state and Jewish control over Jerusalem.  The remaining prophecies point to an international confrontation over Jerusalem that will lead to the battle of Armageddon, the return of Christ, and the end of the world.

First, according to these prophecies, Jerusalem would become a problem for the whole world.  And then the nations would unite in an attempt to enforce a solution:

“Jerusalem will be a heavy stone burdening the world . . . all the nations of the earth unite in an attempt . . .”

— Zechariah 12:3 LB

United Nations resolutions quoted later in this book show that the international community today does view Jerusalem as a problem for the whole world.  And these U.N. resolutions form a legal basis for the international community to take concerted military action.  Soon, as the Bible says,

. . . all the nations on earth will come together to attack Jerusalem.” 

—Zechariah 12:3 NCV

“They . . . go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle . . . all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name [Armageddon][a location in Israel].

—Revelation 16:14-16 NLT

Yes, the Bible makes it plain that the restoration of Jewish control over the land of Israel and Jerusalem would lead up to military action against Israel by the rest of the world.  The prophet Joel quotes God as saying this:

“‘At that time, when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem,’ says the LORD,  ‘I will gather the armies of the world into the valley of Jehoshaphat’” [a location in Israel].

—Joel 3:1-2 NLT

And this military action would be met by Divine intervention:

The armies of heaven . . . defeat the nations”

—Revelation 19:14-15 NCV

“The God of heaven will set up another kingdom that will . . . crush all the other kingdoms and bring them to an end . . .

—Daniel 2:44 NCV

This book does not endorse the policies of the Israeli government.  Rather, it points out Bible prophecies that condemn Israel.  But the prophecies also cite Israel and Jerusalem as a timeline marker and as a warning for all mankind.

Some two thousand years after Roman legions destroyed ancient Jerusalem and scattered the Jewish people worldwide, the state of Israel was restored with Jerusalem as its capital—against all odds, but exactly as predicted in the Bible. 

So, what about the remaining prophecies that all the nations will unite against Israel, mobilize armies against Jerusalem, and march into the war of Armageddon that will end the world as we know it?  The prophecies that have already been fulfilled guarantee that the rest will also come true.

As this book will demonstrate, the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament both contain prophecies pointing to the same series of events.  Written by different human penmen, but inspired by the same God, these prophecies agree that the world’s governments will unite to mobilize their armed forces against Israel, just before God brings an end to this world.

What else does the Bible say about the time period leading up to the end? 

It would be a time when environmental disasters would plague mankind.  The prophecies mention earthquakes in one place after another:

“. . . earthquakes in various places.”

—Matthew 24:7 NCV

There would be destructive ocean waves like those caused recently by severe coastal storms and devastating tsunamis:

“. . . distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves . . .”

—Luke 21:25 RSV

Mankind would be plagued by climate change with extreme weather events:

“. . . and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat. . .”

—Revelation 16:8-9 NIV

Like the volcanic eruptions that have interfered with air traffic in recent years, smoke rising up from beneath the earth would plague mankind:

“When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace.”

—Revelation 9:2

The prophecies foretell drastic deforestation world wide:

“. . . one third of the trees were burnt up . . .”

—Revelation 8:7

And the planet’s sea life would be threatened, with fish stocks greatly reduced, much as we see happening in the world today:

“. . . a third of the living creatures in the sea died . . .”

—Revelation 8:8-9

The prophecies of the end of the world also point to the immoral cities of Sodom and Gomorrah as examples of what will happen to this world:

“. . . the evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah . . . an example of what is going to happen to those who are against God.”

—2 Peter 2:6 NCV

The prophecies go on to say worldwide opposition to Israel will culminate in the final war of Armageddon that will destroy all human governments.  The government of the United States will cease to exist.  The governments of the European Union countries will fall.  The government of the state of Israel will be replaced.  And most of the people on earth will be killed in the final war that these prophecies describe.  But those who survive will find peace and happiness under a new world government ruled by Jesus, the Messiah.

So, our survival and the future of our loved ones depend on how we prepare now for what is coming.

This book explains what these ancient prophecies actually say, how today’s events are already lining up with what was foretold—as well as what you need to do to survive.  Gaining life in the peaceful new world that will replace this evil world is not a matter of chance or of survival skills.  Rather, it is a matter of following the instructions found in the Scriptures alongside these prophecies, as this book will discuss.
