I want you to know that we are living in extremely exciting, yet dangerous days on earth! The prophecies that are fulfilled all around us are staggering. Confidence in governments around the world has been shaken, perhaps beyond repair. Global financial foundations are crumbling. There are so many strategic hot spots around the world that are ticking time-bombs, waiting to explode.
Yet at the same time, God is doing something truly remarkable, historic, and breathtaking! He desires us to do something world-changing that is unprecedented.
I don’t remember ever seeing so many reports of the nations struggling politically, morally, financially, and spiritually—all at the same time! I don’t think it has happened so universally around the world since the dawn of human history.
Today’s news headlines, taken at face value, should shock each of us to the core!
What’s happening in Syria right now is of utmost importance prophetically, for the Word of God clearly states that it is from Syria that the antichrist will arise (Isaiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, and Malachi refer to the antichrist as being from the Assyrian Empire, or modern-day Syria).
We are living in a time when great changes are quickly taking place all around us in each hemisphere.
Everything happening in the Middle East, especially when so much hostility is increasingly pointed toward Israel, carries great, prophetic importance for the rest of the world.
It is as if these words that our Lord Jesus spoke were given to us for this hour:
And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. (Luke 21:25-28, NKJV)
Even as we anticipate the coming of our Lord Jesus, we are told to “occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13). We must be about our Father’s business, especially during these crucial times.
As the prophetic clock ticks, massive doors are opening in nations where I have never gone before as we seek to take the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations through every means possible!
And whatever we do, we dare not pull back now!
