The world watches as a crisis unfolds in Gaza at the Israeli-Egyptian border

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have crossed over into Egypt at the Rafah Crossing in the Gaza Strip at the Israeli-Egyptian border and it looks like both Egypt and Israel are at a loss as how to return stability to the border.

For a number of months now, Hamas has been destroying the infrastructure of the border fence and the Palestinians have breached the border with up to one half million Palestinians crossing into Egypt overrunning the Egyptian army at the border. Israeli officials fear that Palestinian terrorists will use the Sinai as a staging area for additional rocket attacks on Israel all along the Israeli-Egyptian border focused on the Negev and the Southern most Israeli city of Eilat on the Red Sea coast.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The crisis at the Israeli-Egyptian border with hundreds and thousands of Palestinians breaching the border is in lockstep with Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

Tensions have been building in the Gaza Strip basically because of the IDF's actions against the Hamas terrorists who keep firing rockets into Israel and help to incite the Palestinians to breach the border and rush into Egypt with the borders open for terrorists who have free access into Gaza with no security to stop the inflow of all types of weapons and rockets to use against Israel. In fact, Hamas says they will march half a million Palestinians against the Northern border of the Gaza Strip to enter Israel proper if pushed by the IDF.

This looming crisis in the Gaza Strip is part of a scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for the Last Days. The ancient Jewish prophet Malachi wrote over 2,000 years ago that the Edomites, Palestinians of today, would return to rebuild and the Lord said He would call their borders the borders of wickedness, Malachi 1:4. Ezekiel wrote that the Palestinians would kill the Jews and try to take their land, Ezekiel 35. Obadiah said that the pride of the Palestinians would bring them down and that when Jesus Christ returns to the Earth, they would be completely destroyed.

The crisis in the Gaza Strip at the Israeli-Egyptian border is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
