Saddam Hussein has been executed, Iran is near to having a nuclear weapon, and other headlines from 2006

The headlines for 2006 focus on the war in Iraq, Iran's development of nuclear weapons, and President Ahmadinejad's rhetoric calling for the total destruction of the Jewish state of Israel. In Israel. the Israeli-Palestinian conflict continues with no end in sight. There is a prospect of a civil war among the Palestinians and among the Jewish people as well. The Jews are divided over the evacuation of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria.

On the European continent, the coming together of the European Union and its member states forming a major economic and political power is growing closer as the EU celebrates its 50 anniversary in the year ahead.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The current events of the year 2006 have set the stage for the scenario for the End Times found in Bible prophecy to be fulfilled in 2007.

The radical rhetoric of Iranian President Ahmadinejad calling for Israel to be removed from the Earth has a close connection to Bible prophecy. A nuclear powered Iran in the hands of Ahmadinejad would present a grave danger to the entire world. On a daily basis one can see the Islamic world aligning themselves against the Jewish nation. During the new year of 2007, the low-key celebration of the 50th anniversary of the European Union puts in place the infrastructure for the Revived Roman Empire.

This look at current events is evidence that the world is set for the final drama in history to unfold - a drama that is described in Bible prophecy. Add to that the execution of Saddam Hussein. Revelation 18 speaks of the headquarters of a one world governmental, economic, politcal system located in Babylon, which is modern day Iraq. The leader of that one world system is the Antichrist who comes out of the Revived Roman Empire. The last thing that happens before Jesus Christ steps down in Jerusalem is the destruction of Babylon and that one world system, Revelation 16:17-22.

As we look into 2007, the world is set for these Bible prophecies to be fulfilled.
