Unrest in the Middle East

February 28, 2011

As we get closer and closer to the rapture of the church and the return of Christ we will see an increase in tension in the Middle East. The things that we see happening in Egypt, Libya, and other countries in the Middle East are not random or coincidental. The following is a blog post by Joel Rosenberg a Jewish believer in Jesus Christ. In this post he reminds us of some key Scriptures that focus on Libya. Below is an excerpt and a link for more. Check it out!

It is so painful to watch the horror show underway in Libya right now. Estimates tell us that at least 1,000 Libyans are dead. Many more are wounded. Some 100,000 people have apparently fled Libya in recent days as the situation goes from bad to worse.

The first sentence of a new Time magazine article asks, “Is it the End of Days for Libya?” The article looks at the rising death toll as Gaddafi continues using his army to slaughter the Libyan people desperate for change. It also asks the question of whether Libya will experience peace even if (or when) Gaddafi is deposed. Dirk Vandewalle, a Libyan expert at Dartmouth University, told Time: ”Both sides, both the population, and the security organizations, know exactly what’s at stake. If government militias [are to] win, they will have to kill many more, and if the security organizations lose, then the people, the regular people in Libya are going to take their revenge….Either way we’re going to see a terrible blood bath.” David Mack, a former deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, told Timethat the worst possible outcome would be a widespread lawlessness in which Libya degenerated into a kind of “Somalia on the Mediterranean.”

What does the Bible tell us? Libya is referred to numerous times in the Scriptures, both directly and indirectly. For more click http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/ .
