Why Does God Use Other Nations to Oppose Israel?

Whether we’re dealing with a minor prophet like Micah, Nahum, Joel, or another, the truth is very clear. God will use whatever He chooses to use in order to purify and perfect the nation that He created and whose original leaders entered into an irrevocable covenant with Jehovah Himself. God originally dealt with Israel’s leaders who set things in motion. All who are born into that nation share the responsibility (and the guilt when falling), of carrying on that covenantal relationship. God is certainly very much aware of the fact that at some point, His promises to Israel will be completely fulfilled. All nations who seek Israel’s harm will be dealt with by God, in His way and in His time.

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 7

It will be interesting to see what transpires over the next few years regarding Babylon. Will it rise again? If so, what will it be like? Chances are great that this city, according to Scripture, will be rebuilt and play a part in the coming Tribulation. However, what is far more important for each and every Christian is to live in a way that glorifies God so that others might see the difference in our lives and be pointed to the God of glory, who has died for their sin.

Babylon’s Future Demise

Jeremiah 50:4 tells us several things will occur with the Israelites due to the destruction of Babylon in the future. Notice it says that the people will “come together.” This means that en masse, they will actually leave Babylon and seek the way to Zion. This is not allegorical verbiage to be interpreted metaphorically. It clearly means that in the day Babylon is fully and utterly destroyed, those Israelites living there will leave and journey to Zion (Jerusalem/Israel), where they will enter into a new covenant with God, an everlasting covenant. This is all part of God’s plan to open the eyes of those who will make up the final remnant and enter the Millennial Kingdom ruled by Jesus as saved Israelites who will finally and fully inhabit the Land of Promise.

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 6

God gets things done and in this case, he moved Isaiah to prophecy regarding Babylon and its demise by the Medes. It is believed that Isaiah prophesied this upcoming historical fact roughly 150 years before it occurred. The actual event took place right around 539 BC. Higher critics say that another “Isaiah” came along after the fact and wrote about the event after either seeing it or hearing about it. The testimony of Scripture (including the New Testament) makes no indication that there might have been more than one Isaiah. In fact, John quotes several places of Isaiah in his same Gospel and attributes both to the same Isaiah (John 12:37–41).

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 3

But where does all of this start? As we noted previously, even though the coming one-world government has roots all the way back to Genesis 11, Nimrod, and the Tower of Babel, it all begins in earnest in Daniel 2. This is where God chose to reveal what was previously hidden and starts the clock ticking. It is interesting that God chose to reveal the start of the first empire all the way to the global unification of the fourth and final empire in its revised or “resurrected” form (yet future), through Nebuchadnezzar. However, it makes sense if this is where God began tracking the 70 “weeks” that are revealed in Daniel 9.

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 2

Don’t you love the consistency of Scripture and how it actually interprets itself? Revelation 17 refers to the ten kings and so does Daniel 7, written hundreds of years apart. Just as we learn in Revelation 17, these Tribulation kings arise out of the final stages of the fourth kingdom that refers back to Daniel 2 (and 7), when Nebuchadnezzar received a dream that God interpreted through Daniel.

Politics, the Bible and You

This is not to suggest it doesn’t matter who we vote for or that their character doesn’t matter. It is saying that their personal ethics [are] not the first or sole criteria for determining the best candidate. As God is raising up and taking down leaders, we, as citizens of America, should use our best judgment to choose the candidate that will maintain law and order, seek the welfare of all people, and to promote good and restrain evil as God defines it. We do our best and allow love and grace to abound.
