I watch the news coming directly form Iraq. ISIS is a terrorist organization whose intent is to take the entire Middle East, and then the world. Some other power is supplying them with weapons, since they have no legal government or country. It seems neither Syria, Lebanon or Iraq is strong enough to stop them. Some of you may have noticed as you watched the news that their flag i black, they dress in black and the represent death. It is unusual to have a bold and blatant group such as this in the 21st century.
Ore president has ordered humanitarian aid to the Christians and other minorities in Iraq who are stranded in the mountains. However, he has not ordered the destruction of ISIS. We need to pray for our government and our president, because ISIS has the potential of taking over all of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and will not be stopped after that. To me, ISIS represents the power of darkness. The only answer I have is that Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy.
The land of /Iraq dates back to old Testament and was called Babylon. Babylon was mentioned in the book of Revelations and in Daniel. As I have noted in the past, Babylon is mentioned more than any other city in the Bible after Jerusalem. The Bible says the people of Babylon are the most evil people on earth. If ISIS takes over Iraq, are we living in the last days? Are we getting closer to what Daniel saw? What John the Revelator saw? I believe we are. We talk about the coming of the Lord and w know that one day with the Lord is like a thousand years and one thousand years like one day. The false prophet and the Anti-Christ are ready to be revealed. I also believe that something is holding them back and I believe it is the appearance of Jesus in the clouds coming to take His bride!
