For a number of years now, Israel has been warning Hezbollah in Lebanon that it will respond to any attack ferociously. Hezbollah targets Israel and has continued to re-arm since the 2006 war and has tried to get high-tech anti-aircraft missiles via Syria.
Israel had some serious casualties in that war and is determined that the next will be a decisive victory. She has told the southern Lebanese population to leave when hostilities break out and has destroyed arms convoys coming from Syria, with weapons that could threaten her air force.
Kim Jong-Un, like his father before him, is kept in power for political reasons but is Kim Jong-Un in bible prophecy? He is just a puppet, someone to fight over, someone to heat up the Cold War. Sounds simplistic but that’s about it.
Like Castro’s Cuba, Kim Jong-Un’s North Korea is not a financial reality; it’s propped up with foreign cash.
The time is now close for Satan to be bound and the world to be judged for sin.
Yet he is still the adversary of the Church while the Lord is in Heaven. He is a dangerous enemy who needs to be treated with respect. Not for what he is or for what he does, but that you do not underestimate him and that you ‘know your enemy’ to be victorious over him in Christ.
