Libya's Col. Khaddafi is dead

Listen to Today's Program Play

After days of military assaults on the hometown of Libya's Col. Khaddafi, the opposition has claimed victory in the war and also claim they have killed the treacherous dictator of Libya Col. Khaddafi, the man who ruled Libya for 42 years with an iron fist and was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Libyans. 

Reports say that Khaddafi tried to flee in a convoy that came under attack from NATO war planes however it is unclear if Khaddafi's death was a result of that NATO strike or from ground troops that report they took Khaddafi out.  The future of Libya is in question in light of the fact that no one really knows who the opposition in Libya is and there are reports that there is a major radical Islamic element involved in the overthrow of Khaddafi. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The death of ex-Libyan leader Col. Muammar Khaddafi is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

After 42 years of a treacherous dictatorship in Libya, the former dictator Col. Khaddafi, has been killed by the opposition that brought down his decades old regime.  Khaddafi's death is an end to a terrible time for his people but the beginning of the future for the liberated nation, a future that is very uncertain at this time.  Col. Khaddafi had stockpiled a large arsenal of chemical weapons and various other military munitions over the years.  The big question today is who is controlling this vast arsenal and could it get into the hands of radical terrorist elements in our world?  Another very important question is who is the opposition that brought down Khaddafi?  We do know there is a radical Islamic element that played a key role in the overthrow of Khaddafi. 

Of great interest to students of Bible prophecy is the fact that the name of one of the nations that moves in the last days to destroy the Jewish state of Israel is Libya, used in the book of Daniel 11:43 and Ezekiel 38:5.  Both of the Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel include Libya in the coalition of nations that endeavor to wipe Israel off the face of the earth in the last days.  Libya and the other nations listed in Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83 will make their strike on the Jewish state of Israel when there is peace in place in the Middle East (Ezekiel 38:8,11). 

The world stage is indeed set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
