MUSLIM NATIONS DETERMINED TO DESTROY ISRAEL
By Ken Blue
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness… In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. 9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:1-9.
“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.” Zechariah 14:1-3.
Anyone who follows the Middle East news is aware that all Muslim nations are determined to destroy Israel. In fact, they must destroy Israel for their objectives for world dominion to be realized. Some non-Muslim nations may join them for a share in the riches of the land.
One of the greatest proofs that the Bible is true is the prophecies of this coming event and its outcome. God will allow the anti-Jewish nations to come together for the “final solution.” However, this will be their final act against Israel and God’s purpose will be fulfilled through Israel.
The following article from the Associated Press is the Ayatollahs most recent reminder of their determination to unwittingly fulfill this prophecy.

“TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran’s supreme leader predicted the destruction of Israel in comments posted on his Web site on Wednesday, in some of his strongest remarks in years about the Jewish state.
In the past, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that must be wiped from the map, but the new comments mark the first time in years he has openly speculated about Israel’s demise.
“Definitely, the day will come when nations of the region will witness the destruction of the Zionist regime,” Khamenei was quoted as saying. “How soon or late (Israel’s demise) will happen depends on how Islamic countries and Muslim nations approach the issue.” He did not elaborate.”
If you need proof that the Bible is true, one word will do; that word is “Jew.” Keep reading the Book, keep looking up and keep your eye on what happens to Israel.
