Dan 11:40 At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.
The king of the South is Egypt and Israel. Egypt is a Sunni Muslim nation but a secular state and will not tolerate extremism. The Islamic Brotherhood government was recently removed by the military. It has volunteers or army fighting alongside the Sunni rebels against Assad’s Shia government, which rules over more than 70% Sunni majority in Syria.
The king of the North (the former Persian Empire) comprises of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
There are 6 groups fighting one another in this area:
1. The Shia, which governs Iran, Iraq and Syria.
2. The Sunni, which is the majority in Syria and are rebelling against the ruling party in both Syria and Iraq.
3. ISIS the Sunni extremists, formed the Sunni Caliphate in Syria and Iraq and are fighting everyone.
4. The Kurds are protecting their own land from ISIS and are rebelling against the ruling powers for independence.
5. The West supports the Shia by disposing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, but in Syria they are supporting the rebelling Sunnis.
6. Russia bombing ISIS,
This mess will eventually see the Shias, with help from the Russians, to finally kill many Sunnis and control this area. Egypt with support from the West and other Sunni States will then attack Iran. Israel may take this opportunity to attack the nuclear facilities in Iran. This will start World War 3.
Dan 11:29-30 “At the appointed time he shall return and go toward the south; but it shall not be like the former or the latter. For ships from Cyprus (Western nations) shall come against him; therefore, he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage. So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant.”
When Egypt and Israel attack Iran (king of the North), Iran will overrun all the Sunni Arab nations and will destroy all the military bases of the West. Immediately, US (Western nation) will attack Iran from its fifth fleet based in the Arabian Sea, thus expanding World War 3.
Mat 24:6-7 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
Since WW3 is imminent to fulfill the rumours of wars, and with natural disasters killing a quarter of mankind, the whole world will definitely be destroyed and made desolate. Without help, many will starve to death.
Rev 6:7-8 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
Brethren, WW3 will definitely reduce everyone to pauper, desperate and in great despair. Hurricane Harvey’s destruction of Houston, Texas and Hurricane Irma’s destruction of the Caribbean are just preludes of the disastrous effects of WW3. We thank God that He will use WW3 to protect and nourish His faithful servants that His name is glorified.
