One of the most known “end times” Biblical prophecies is the Battle of Armageddon. It is the final battle when Jesus liberates Israel from the Antichrist forces on the plains of Megiddo. Armageddon is a Hebrew word for the valley called Megiddo (valley of Megiddo).
The following article from the Jewish News Syndicate is evidence that we are fast approaching the time when the Antichrist will appear on the scene. At first, he will appear to be Israel’s saviour with a peace plan.
I am not suggesting that this will happen in the next year or two because the Bible’s timeline for the “end times” reveals in Daniel 8.
1. The Goat (Turkey, Sunni) and the Ram (Iran, Shia) battle for dominance has not yet played out.
2. Turkey’s attempt to re-establish a revived Ottoman Empire will be dashed when it is broken up into four Kingdoms out of which the Antichrist (Little Horn) emerges.
Then the goat (Turkey) became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
“Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.” Daniel 8:9-10
Israel is in a war that is difficult to identify, as there is no shelling by tanks and cannons or bombing by planes.

“When senior Israeli government ministers meet with the chairman of the Palestinian Authority; when the defense minister promotes a long line of gestures and grants to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas; when the American administration revives the notion of a two-state solution and partition of the land; when U.S. President Joe Biden presses for the opening of a consulate for the PA in the heart of Jerusalem as an expression of his aspiration to see it as the capital of Palestine; when more and more Israeli ministers speak out against settlement and in favor of the partition of the land; we find ourselves in the midst of a silent, gradual and dangerous war.
That is why the Sovereignty Movement and some 20 other organizations that love the land of Israel and Jerusalem, have initiated protests to call on Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his government to stand resolutely and preserve the unity of Jerusalem.
For 12 years, the impression was that it was no longer necessary to stage demonstrations and vigils, but, apparently, we were wrong.
We must take to the streets and, in the name of devotion to and love of Jerusalem, to battle in its defense, rouse the people and spur the leaders to action. We will not enable Israeli submission to American dictates.”
As well as being surrounded by hostile Muslim nations intent on Israel’s destruction they are pressured by the UN and now America whom Israel considers one of its only allies.
Many of the orthodox Jews believe the 1800 prophecies in their Torah that reveal that their Messiah, will return to rescue Israel and He will rule and reign the nations from a completely restored Jerusalem. Sadly, they do not know it is Jesus whom they rejected 2000 odd years ago now. Pray for Israel.
