Is it just me or are we seeing a movement of changing governments in the Middle East? We first heard about Tunsinia which fueled fire for Egypt. Egypt fueled the fires for Syria and other surrounding countries. Even today the president/dictator of Yemen announced that he would be stepping down and turning over his power to a new government. The people of these nations are crying out for democracy and many are getting what they have asked for. Do you think this is a good thing? I have often said that the rise of Antichrist would be on the wings of democracy. Are we seeing a change in this region for a reason?
Many of the nations that have already ousted their dictators have become full Muslim states. We have fought hard for the people of Iraq to be free to only allow them to become a Muslim country. Saddam Hussein was a crazy dictator who killed many but the Christians were not as persecuted as they are now. Egypt had a horrible dictator as well but Christians for the most part were given some religious freedoms. We will probably see this status change once the new government makes strict laws against other religions besides Christianity.
I am not saying that these countries should not have a democracy but at what end? Democracy should be for all the people who live in that country. I believe we will see a different environment for believers in these countries in the next few years. Christian persecution has always been strong in this region but we will now see a rise in it.
I believe someone is orchestrating these events. He or she are forerunners for the Antichrist to come. There is a secret group of people who are calling the shots and situating this part of the world to where they need it to be. I know this sounds crazy but it is something one can feel in their spirit man. When I hear about the stories taking place over in this region of the world; my spirit man keeps jumping within side. I hear the warning of the Lord for his people to beware and stay alert. We need to man our watch towers more than ever in this hour. I believe Revelation 17 sheds some light on what we are seeing. The recent chain of events have to occur in order for the promise of the Lord to happen.
I would like to encourage all believers to stay alert and be open to what Holy Spirit is saying in this hour. We don't need to be so caught up in our everyday lives to miss what our God is about to do next and what the enemy is doing around the world.
