  • "Standing with the residents of Sderot and Ashkelon as the war with Hamas continues DID ISRAEL JUST BLINK, OR WIN?: Olmert declares unilateral cease-fire January 16, 2009...7:21 am BIBLE PROPHECY AND GAZA WAR “Is there a connection between Bible prophecy and the war in Gaza right now?” I’m getting asked that everywhere I travel here in the epicenter. It’s an intriguing question, and there are two quick answers — no, and yes. 1.) No, there is no specific passage of Scripture that points to this specific war between Israel and terrorists in Gaza in the “last days,” though there are certainly some passages that are evocative of the current conflict. The Lord once said through the Hebrew Prophet Amos, for example, “I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza and it will consume her citadels….I will even unleash My power upon Ekron, and the remnant of the Philistines will perish.” But this was fulfilled between 760 and 750 B.C. 2.) That said, the current war between Israel and the terrorist leaders and fighters of Hamas in Gaza could be preparing the way for the coming “War of Gog and Magog” described in Ezekiel 38-39. In that prophecy (as well as chapters 36 and 37), Ezekiel says that: 1. The State of Israel will be resurrected in the last days 2. Jews will pour back into the Holy Land after centuries of being scattered in exile all over the world 3. By God’s grace, the Jews will rebuild the ancient ruins in the land of Israel 4. By God’s grace, the Jews will see the land of Israel blossom and bear fruit like never before"
