The Arab World Explodes

And how should the Christian respond to all these events? It is vital to understand that Christians living in these Middle East countries are suffering greatly in the turmoil.  Persecution of Christians has been growing in many of them, including Egypt, and their position is a very precarious and dangerous one.  True Christians should be earnestly praying for their brothers and sisters throughout the Middle East; for their safety, and for the spread of the Gospel of Christ in these turbulent times.  Stand with them!  Meet with them around the throne of grace!  Pray for pastors there, for evangelists there, for the ordinary believers there – and for the Lord to send forth still more labourers into this needy and dangerous mission field! But please: do not be misled by these Middle Eastern events, as some Futurist interpreters of Bible prophecy and others are being, into thinking that these things mark the end of the world.  This is the Middle East!  It is the most volatile place on earth.  Revolutions and uprisings are a way of life in the Muslim world, always have been and always will be.  It is not the physical nation of Israel, nor the Islamic fanatics who for many centuries have lived by the sword and will continue to do so, which are at the centre of Bible prophecy; rather, it is the Great Whore, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the earth (Rev. 17), the Roman Papacy, the religion of the Papal Antichrist, which occupies that position, and which must be most carefully watched.  And in fact, in many unseen ways which may or may not be revealed with the passing of time, it is the emissaries of the Papal system, in particular the Jesuits, who are behind the scenes of world events, agitating, stirring, working both sides, pulling the strings of governments, and who are behind the very Globalism which is manipulating the Middle East turmoil right now.  Islam is a devilish religion, a religion of bloodshed and war, but events in the Islamic world do not point to the world’s end.  Pay no heed to sensationalist preachers and “prophetic experts” who have been wrong time and time again; heed the Holy Scriptures alone. Pray for those whom the Lord Jesus Christ is drawing to Himself from the tumultuous Middle East region!  May many Muslims yet see in Him the Prince of Peace, the true and only Saviour of the world!
