On the Fringe of the Midnight Hour

By Justin Edwards

The world is primed for the Great Tribulation to begin. The war cloud in the Middle East has reached thunderous proportions and war could break out any day. Israel is reporting that North Korea is supplying Syria with WMD's, who in turn is supplying Hezbollah with scuds capable of reaching major Israeli cities. Further, Russia continues its love affair with Arab nations as it seeks nuclear cooperation with Syria to bolster its presence in addition to its relationship with the terrorist state Iran.

With time expired for the International Community to prevent Iran from achieving the ranks of nuclear powers, I believe Israel will act soon to fulfill its promise of not allowing Iran to build the bomb. For years, Iran has sworn the destruction of Israel and they will not hesitate to act on this promise as soon as they have the means. Meanwhile, Israel has been diligently preparing for war and just yesterday said it is ready for war against not only Iran, but Syria as well.

America continues to turn her back on the state of Israel as the Obama administration leans to force the Jewish state into a 2-state solution. God says of Israel in Genesis 12:3,

3 I will bless those who bless you,
      And I will curse him who curses you;
      And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” 

The United States has never been in a more precarious situation than it is today. As natural disasters increase in frequency and catastrophic impact, as America continues to spiral into mortal debt, and as we enter into a new stage of terrorism on our shores to include truck bombings and WMDs, the U.S. is ready to fall. We are ready to be removed as the world's only superpower. And the more we distance ourselves from Israel, the greater the curse will fall on America.

These briefly-mentioned realities barely scratch the surface of the plethora of endtimes activity setting the stage for the end of all things. I encourage you to watch The Hal Lindsey Report from May 9th  to gain a better understanding as to where we are on the prophetic time clock. We may very well see war in the Middle East  break out this summer. What follows could possibly be the fulfillment of Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, and Ezekiel 38-39 in short order. The world will then be ready, even more than now, for the Antichrist to come on scene to restore the world to order, if only temporarily. The Bride of Christ may see some of these things come to pass before Christ returns to snatch her away. The closer we get to the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the closer we are to the Rapture of the Church.

Are you ready?

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

 1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
