While the world focuses upon a piece of debris floating somewhere in the distant and obscure South Indian Ocean, World War III is likely beginning among the nations of the earth. Russia’s troops are now preparing for a very possible and imminent invasion of Ukraine. News reports show that Russia is firming up relations and plans with Iran and China for economic espionage and sabotage against the United States. Their hope is to isolate the U.S. and make it more irrelevant than it has already become under the distracted and ideologically confused leadership of Barak Obama.
Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Venezuela and more than a few Islamic countries like Syria and Iran, are “cooking up” some surprises for the West. Analysts who write on geopolitical matters are aware of this as their articles show. (see, for example, Kevin Freeman, http://globaleconomicwarfare.com/) But the nations of the West, having abandoned God and the Bible, being focused on equal incomes, equal rights for homosexuals, equal regard for all religions except genuine Judaism and Christianity are blind and willfully oblivious to the affairs of nations that are screaming for attention, like Malaysia.
Well, in spite of this neglect, Malaysia is now in the global focus, as well it should be! This is because, as I have pointed out in previous articles, missing Flight 370 is much more than a simple aviation tragedy, it is a symptomatic geopolitical statement! I believe Israel understands this much more than the other nations of the West are willing to, because their very existence is at stake. They are a primary target to the countries that represent the global revolution that, under Russia’s leadership, is now under way.
This is why missing Malaysian Flight 370, which has probably simply made its way quietly into Pakistan or Iran at their invitation, is actually key to global events that are unfolding before our eyes! Israel’s heightened alert of approaching unidentified aircraft is precisely the result of the reality that they do not allow the distracted focus of the Western nations to affect their readiness to defend themselves.
The Bible actually predicted centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ that God would re-establish and re-populate Israel in the latter days. This was hundreds of years before the beginning of many of the world’s competing and non-biblical religions. One passage in Ezekiel is a prime example of how God intends to make Israel the key to latter-day world issues and events.
For the Lord God says: “I will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places they were scattered in that dark and cloudy day. And I will bring them back from among the people and nations where they were, back home to their own land of Israel, and I will feed them upon the mountains of Israel and by the rivers where the land is fertile and good. Yes, I will give them good pasture on the high hills of Israel. There they will lie down in peace and feed in luscious mountain pastures. I myself will be the Shepherd of my sheep and cause them to lie down in peace,” the Lord God says. “I will seek my lost ones, those who strayed away, and bring them safely home again. I will put splints and bandages upon their broken limbs and heal the sick. And I will destroy the powerful, fat shepherds; I will feed them, yes—feed them punishment! (Ezekiel 34:11-16, TLB, 1971)
This prophecy was given in 587 B.C.! God has great plans for Israel! Yet, as things stand presently, the Western nations often want to diffuse the importance of Israel in the world’s affairs, the Middle-Eastern, and Eastern nations seek to dismiss and even desire the destruction of Israel! But, as the above prophecy shows, God intends to establish Israel and to judge the nations that neglect and who seek the destruction of this tiny land and people.
Is World War III beginning? It seems so! Russia is certainly on the march and is aligning with other anti-Western, anti-Israel and especially anti-American countries. Putin is out maneuvering and out smarting President Obama. Obama seems to see the world as he wants it to be, but Putin sees the world as it is! And for now, Putin sees the world as his for the taking! And in reality, who will stop him?
It may be some time before we know what happened to Malaysia Flight 370, but mark well that its sudden and mysterious disappearance has great significance in the days in which we live. Yet believers in Jesus Christ should take heart that all of these things signal that the prophecies of the Bible are unfolding. They signal that God has great plans for those who place their faith in Him and in His Son Jesus Christ! He is the One and Only coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
