In the near future, perhaps less than 5 years, events will transpire that will shock all those who do not know what Biblical prophecy teaches.
Very few forewarned of the earth-shaking wars that Iran and Turkey launched that literally transformed the Middle East and tipped the balances of power in the world. It seemed as if no one would stop Iran as they invaded Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula to, in their words, save the Shia of the region from ISIS and to gain control of all major oil wells. To the world's shock, they never even tried to hit Israel. But it was Turkey who marshalled a coalition of Sunni nations for the counterattack. Their victory was decisive and when the Middle East was divided into 4 new nations, the world again was stunned. Erdogan of Turkey and Assad of Syria was no more, the House of Saud no longer ruled Arabia, the petrodollar system was gone, and there there was an uneasy peace as an alliance formed of 10 nations; a "proper" Caliphate they said. In control of the most of the oil and natural gas in the region, this alliance now was the major player in the global economy. The nation of Egypt and parts of Arabia strongly resisted assimilation but in the end they were subdued.
Israel was as shocked as anyone when a new leader arose from the northern part of this globally recognized Caliphate and offered them not war, but official recognition as a Jewish State and a FINAL PEACE. The long awaited "final status" of Jerusalem was resolved in a historic ceremony with a promise from both sides never to attack. The earth stood agast as the former powers of America, Russia, China, Europe and even the Catholic Church played no role at all in this momentous accord. As part of this "covenant", something shook many to the core: the Jewish Temple, nonexistent
since 70AD, was rebuilt! Taking about 8 months to construct, it was placed right alongside the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, and was heralded as "a House of Prayer for all nations" by Jews, Muslims and Christians alike. But some Christians around the globe were questioning why they couldn't see this coming - and some were asking why they were still here?? The Faith of many was growing cold indeed.
