12 Nov Islamist Super-Bloc Begins Forming in the Middle East
The following article is quite powerful as it pertains to the testimony of Biblical prophecy. On one hand, you have the Islamist government of Turkey aligning with the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas as well as Iran and Hezbollah, while Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf States form their own defensive block.
A monumental strategic shift is taking place in the Middle East as an Islamist super-bloc is forming. Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood are making up with Iran and Hezbollah. Egypt and the Gulf states are forming their own alliance. The U.S. outreach to Iran and the Brotherhood has left it missing from the equation.
The alliances being formed are almost perfectly in alignment with my basic view of the coming structure of the region. First, you have Turkey at the head, leading the northern swatch of the Middle East, with Egypt increasingly isolated in the South. Daniel 11:40-45 states that Egypt will be conquered by the leader of the last days northern coalition. Isaiah 19 refers to this conqueror as “a cruel master”. Beyond this, for some years, I’ve also suggested that toward the end of the tribulation, the Beast coalition of nations will turn its rage against Saudi Arabia. The basic texture of things to come seems to be becoming visible. Of course, even as I say this, I must caution that at best, we only see through a glass darkly, and there will be many twists and unforeseen turns before the final period emerges. But this is all certainly well worth taking note of. The end of this age may be closer than most think. Let us be about the work of God.
