Paris: “Holy War” Flashpoint
The tragic terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13 appear to be acting as a flashpoint in the “Holy War” between Islam and Christianity predicted in Daniel 11:40-43. France’s leader Hollande has come out declaring war on the Islamic State and the pent up frustrations across Europe on Islamic immigration are now really boiling over. Several European countries are saying “no” to Muslim refugees and some state Governors in the USA are also rejecting Muslim refugees. Unfortunately, the liberal politicians have tried to bury their heads in the sand as to the risks of radical Islam. The president of the US has even refused to call the Islamic state “Islamic”. This has been leading to the build up of frustrations. Now with the attack in France, some conservative politicians are openly talking about closing mosques. This opposite extreme will also cause trouble by leading Muslims who would otherwise have resisted radical islam to join the radicals because of the closing of mosques. I encourage you to read the previous posts to understand better what this Daniel 11 prophecy is all about and how we are currently seeing its fulfillment. You should especially read “An Explanation” and “The Third and Final Holy War Begins”
Now that the Paris attack has occurred and the backlash has begun, the “holy war” will most likely intensify rapidly. It is time for every Christian to be serious about trusting every aspect of their lives to Jesus and following the Bible as their guide for life. At this time in history you should make sure that you are not knowingly living in disobedience to any Biblical teaching. You should be preparing to meet Jesus at His very soon return.
As a Christian your role in this final “holy war” is to love people on both sides and teach them God’s love and truth. God’s people will be caught in the middle just like Jerusalem gets caught in the middle in the middle east. Don’t worry, though, because soon Jesus will rescue His people caught in the middle. We may be entering the time when we should begin to divest of earthly investments and invest them in the work of God. You should prayerfully ask God for His leading on this.
