Jonathan Cahn does a great job of showing how God has been in control of nations down through history. How each nation deals with God’s nation, Israel, determines its fate – bless Israel and the nation is blessed, curse Israel and the nation is cursed.
The book of Joshua is a brutally stark reminder that God is ultimately judge of all the nations. God leveraged Israelites as His instrument of judgement on the nations of that land for their sins, just as hundreds of years later God would leverage the Babylonians to pass judgement on the nation of Judah for its sins. God is sovereign judge over all the nations.
Read what Job said about God controlling nations:
“He makes nations great, and destroys them; He enlarges nations, and guides them. He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without light, and He makes them stagger like a drunken man.” Job 14:23-25
In the last days, before Jesus returns to rule and reign on a restored earth, God says He will gather the Jewish people back to their land. He did this in part in 1948 and then gave them back Jerusalem in the Jubilee year 1967. We can be sure all of the rest of the end times biblical prophecies will unfold exactly as given.
Anyone interested in what God is doing and will do in the years ahead need to listen to Jonathan expound the relevant “end times” scriptures.
The only disagreement I have with Jonathan is on the identity of the Antichrist. Jonathan says, he will be a Roman, based on Daniel 9:26-27. I believe he will be from the Middle East, the long awaited Muslim Mahdi. In Daniel 9:26-27, we see that it is the people of the ruler shall destroy Jerusalem. The people groups that made up the four legions that Titus led were the ancient enemies of the Jewish people, from lands that surrounded Judea.
“And the people of the prince (ruler) who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war, desolations are determined. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” Daniel 9:26-27
