In these last few weeks, we have been assisting to historical, epic (and may I add, prophetical) changes in the geo-politics of the Middle East and African quadrant, the outcome of which is clear to those who know and understand the Word of God: the final re-alignment of countries and allegiances, in line with the prophetic Word of God for the End Times, while unpredictable and shocking to the big players (read U.S.A., Europe).
To their great embarrassment, the “big players” have been caught practically unawares, and to their utter shame they have reacted in the most confused, disparaged and much exceptionable way. Makes you wonder, with all the money they spend on espionage, satellite monitoring, telephone and internet surveillance and God knows what else, that they had no inkling of the smoldering cauldron the Middle East has turned out to be. As if all things were under control, as if all the small-time and big-time tyrants (mostly enthroned by them) could forever hold down their oppressed people, while generating untold fortunes for themselves, their families and friends.
As usual, the hypocrisy of most of the reporting media is hallucinating: why, until yesterday, nary an article on these tyrants, who went about their daily business and today all sort of evil is reversed upon them, as if magically, some mysterious portal has been opened for the very first time revealing an endless litany of horror and evil. Disgusting.
I am writing this article for two specific reasons:
1) to point to the foolishness of it all
And when I say “it all,” beside the tyrants-in-loco I am including the appalling response of the Western Powers: an unbelievable show of ineptitude, confusion, back-biting, warmongering, posturing and gesturing which has left the common people scrambling for truth and fresh air. Unfortunately, the “truth” part will go the way of the dodos, while the “fresh air” part, oh, that will eventually come in the coming weeks.
2) to point the real outcome of all this
Unfortunately, for some, mostly Israel, this turn of events will play negatively. Very negatively.
Sometimes, in the course of history, even tyrants have played a somewhat mediated role. The expression “benevolent tyrant” has been used to describe such men. In our “cultured” western thought, however democracy has shaped our thinking in ways that we feel repelled by the very word a “tyrant,” while leaving plenty of space for being inclined otherwise in regards to other countries. So, we are well disposed to close one eye, or both upon foreign dictators, in classical 3-monkeys style, as long as it serves our interests.
In the Middle East, a lot of more or less enlightened countries have been fighting an underground war with Islamic fundamentalists, who, when the dust shall settle, will have carte blanche to carry out all of their distorted heart’s content, and Israel, mainly, will be at the receiving end. So much is clear from statements and proclaims banded about by the new official rabble-rousers emerged as by magic from the desert sand.
If the Western countries really believe they will be left unscathed by all these new developments, and it is only Israel’s business, they are indeed insane and criminally so.
So, the players are being set and there is no confusion to those who know and trust the Word of God.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. – Zechariah 12:2,3
