Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
On Veteran's Day 2008, the world stops to remember their loved ones who gave their lives to defend liberty and to remember the end of WWI; however, this day reminds us of more wars to come that is according to Bible prophecy.
Veteran's Day in America, is a national holiday, a time to remember the Veteran's of all US wars and the sacrifices these brave young men and women made for the rest of us to be able to enjoy freedom. This Veteran's Day, November 11th, also marks the end of WWI 90 years ago. WWI was to be the last war, but as history has taught us, that would not be the case.
In fact, Jesus Christ taught in the Olivet Discourse on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago that as the age would draw to an end and before He would return to the earth, the world could expect wars and rumors of wars, nations against nations and kingdoms against kingdoms, Matthew 24:6 and 7. Revelation 19 reveals the prophecy of the "mother of all wars", the Battle of Amageddon, which takes place at the end of a seven year Tribulation Period, a terrible time of judgment yet to come.
Our world today, Veteran's Day 2008 and all the wars and rumors of wars around this world today, seems to indicate we are moving closer to the fullfillment of these prophecies.
