Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of June 22 - June 28, 2017

Aside from the usual collection of articles for the week, we came across a couple interesting items of note:

1)  Well know journalist Charles Krauthammer wrote an article, (link below) where he summarized the two competing factions of Islam that are currently in proxy wars attempting to take control of the Middle-East.  On one side is the Shiite alliance with Iran as the main belligerent with Russia as her benefactor.  The other side are the Sunnis with Saudi Arabia as the key figure supported by the West. This is very interesting considering what the Prophet Ezekiel foresaw in the Last Days in his description of what is called the Gog/Magog War, (Ezekiel 38/39).  In that prophecy we see two sides to the Islamic coin with Persia, (Iran), leading a coalition of nations backed by Magog, (Russia), against Israel.  The other side of the coin features an alliance of nations headed by Sheba/Dedan, (Arabian Peninsula), raising a diplomatic response to the invasion.  This alliance also contains a nation Ezekiel names as Tarshish and the young lions thereof.  Many prophecy scholars identify this terminology to mean Great Britain and her offspring, (America, Canada, Australia, etc, eg The West).

So in short, the alliances for the coming war of Gog/Magog would seem to be quickly firming up, which begs the question;  Just how close is this prophetic war?  (As they say, 'objects in the mirror are closer than they appear').

2)  An expert on the Ark of the Covenant stated the following: “There can be no prophecy without the Holy Ark playing a central role", (article below).  This also begs a question;  Just what does this expert know about the Ark of the Covenant that the remainder of us are in the dark concerning?  The Prophet Jeremiah had this to say about the Ark and the Last Days:

In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land," declares the LORD, "people will no longer say, 'The ark of the covenant of the LORD.' It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made. Jeremiah 3:16 NIV

There is no doubt that the number of Jews have indeed 'greatly increased in the land' in these the Last Days.  In addition, the Ark has been a thing of interest for centuries with many recent documentaries and movies made about it, (including 'Raiders of the Lost Ark').    It will be interesting to know what transpires during the coming Tribulation with regards to the Ark of the Covenant.  Will it make an appearance only to be destroyed and remembered no more?

If you like numbers and think that this fall, (2017), may be very significant in God's grand scheme of things, then why not check out the following article:  2300 Evenings And Mornings  A very interesting read.

Until next week. Maranatha.

Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7 NIV

Prophecy Sign:  Gog/Magog War - Alliances

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Ezekiel 38:13 KJV

The great Muslim civil war — and us
Taken together, they comprise a vast arc — the Shiite Crescent — stretching from Iran through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon to the Mediterranean. If consolidated, it gives the Persians a Mediterranean reach they have not had in 2,300 years. This alliance operates under the patronage and protection of Russia, which supplies the Iranian-allied side with cash, weapons and, since 2015, air cover from its new bases in Syria. 
Arrayed on the other side of the great Muslim civil war are the Sunnis, moderate and Western-allied, led by Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states, Egypt and Jordan — with their Great Power patron, the United States, now (post-Obama) back in action.
