The prophetic Middle East leap created by the White House

The man who occupies the Oval Office has created a game changing prophetic leap in the Middle East that may well have set America's course in prophetic eschatology. Christian and Jewish eschatology speak of the Day of the Lord where the Bible plainly prophesies that Arab/Islamic nations attack Israel and Israel is saved by the Messiah, the Christ, in an end time battle that ushers in the Millennial Reign of Christ. There are many current events that point to this eschatology being set up by the actions of leaders of many nations. The support and acceptance by the White House of the Muslim Brotherhood is a major prophetic and eschatological step that has tremendous consequences.

The Muslim Brotherhood's advance to establish a worldwide Sharia-based caliphate has been catalyzed by the White House. The Administration throwing its support behind the Muslim Brotherhood in what was called the Arab Spring has resulted in Islamists using democracy to take over Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Yemen. Additionally, there is strife in Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia that is either a direct or a collateral affect of advancing the Muslim Brotherhood plan. This destabilization of the Middle East has created an even more hostile environment for Israel by legitimizing Islamic control through democracy and by energizing Islamic terror groups in Israel--Hamas, al Qaeda, Hezbollah and others.

It is well known that Muslim Brotherhood operatives hold positions at the highest levels of US government. Starting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aide Huma Abedin, whose ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are undeniable, and continuing with Islamic appointments within the departments of Defense and Homeland Security. The Administration apparently is banking on a theory that the Muslim Brotherhood will help isolate Iran, as the Muslim Brotherhood is Sunni and Iran is largely Shiite. The Muslim Brotherhood plan as revealed in the Holy Land Foundation terror trial in Texas, however, indicates that it will unify all Muslims under a worldwide Caliphate, similar to the Ottoman Empire.

Islamic eschatology has its Mahdi returning to earth to establish a seven year worldwide rule of Islamic peace. Islam's version of Jesus (Isa) is to be the Mahdi's prophet in leading Jews and Christians to Islam. Islam's eschatology is strikingly similar to the Biblical antichrist. Indeed, Islam denies the deity of Christ. 2 John 7 says, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist." And Zechariah 12:9 speaks of the day of the Lord, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." America has played the eschatological catalyst with its Middle East policy. Its final place in prophecy is yet to be determined.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
