Listen to Today's Program Play

Jordan's King Abdullah is warning the world that the situation in the Middle East could explode due to Israel's building of settlements in the eastern section of the city of Jerusalem. The king said that Israel is playing with fire by carrying out unilateral actions in eastern Jerusalem which the Jewish state captured from Jordan in the 1967 war. 

King Abdullah also said that Israel must choose between living in an isolated fortress in the region or reaching peace with all of the Arab Islamic states in accordance with the Arab peace initiative. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jordan's King Abdullah's warning of an explosion in the Middle East, an all out war, is prophetic - in fact, that is the scenario that is called for in Bible prophecy for the last days.

The most recent warning from Jordan's King Abdullah about a major war in the Middle East is not the first time the king has made these statements. King Abdullah believes that Israel's actions pertaining to Jerusalem are the flash point that could trigger what the king refers to as an explosion in the Middle East. The Jordanian king is especially concerned about the moves that Israel makes as it relates to the Palestinians since almost 70% of his population is made up of Palestinians. The king's focus on Israel action in Jerusalem is a precursor to Bible prophecy as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a lead up to the prophetic scenario for the last days being played out today. 

Zechariah, the ancient Jewish prophet, wrote some 2500 years ago that Jerusalem would be the center of controversy in the last days (Zechariah 12:2). Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Malachi, and Obadiah also wrote about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Malachi said that the Palestinians would return and endeavor to build a nation that would be the scorn of the Lord (Malachi 1). Ezekiel said that the Palestinians would rise up and kill the Jewish people as they stole their land (Ezekiel 35). Obadiah says that when the Messiah Jesus Christ returns to the earth, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be resolved (Obadiah 14-18). 

Basically, King Abdullah's warning is correct - Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
