BOSTON, MA—Iran, Israel, the Arab Spring and the rise of militant Islam: Are we heading for another Middle East war or something much bigger—like the biblical Apocalypse? Researcher David Reed points to the Bible for what will happen next. “The focus will shift to Jerusalem,” Reed says. He cites a prophecy in the book of Zechariah: “Jerusalem will be a heavy stone burdening the world...all the nations of the earth unite in an attempt” to impose their solution.
“United Nations resolutions on Jerusalem dovetail with ancient prophecies,” Reed asserts. He cites General Assembly resolution 181, which declares that Jerusalem should be under U.N. control, and another resolution passed last year that rejects Israeli control over the city. “When the United Nations enforces these resolutions, that’s the scenario the Bible calls Armageddon,” Reed explains. “The nations of the world unite against Israel, and then God steps in and destroys the nations.”
Before discussing what the future holds, the book establishes the Bible’s track record. “It accurately predicted that the pagan idols everyone worshipped back then would be abandoned and people of all nations would worship Israel’s God,” Reed says. “And it foretold that the Jews would be uprooted from the Promised Land, scattered throughout the world, and finally restored as a nation thousands of years later.”
Was anti-Semitism foretold in the Bible, as well as the Holocaust and Israel’s victorious wars against Arab neighbors? Is there an Islamic Antichrist, as Martin Luther and John Calvin taught, and does Islam fulfill the prophecy of someone sitting in God’s place on Temple Mount? Did the Bible predict the deforestation, global warming, and loss of marine life that we see today? Chapters in Reed’s book address all these topics.
“Enemies of God should be afraid of what’s coming, but Christians should be glad,” Reed says, “because Christ’s kingdom will soon replace corrupt human governments.”
DAVID A. REED served for a decade as a contributing editor of Dr. Walter Martin's Christian Research Journal and has authored more than a dozen books on Bible topics.
