Front Page Mag: “Barack Obama announced Tuesday that he was finally fulfilling one of his foremost campaign promises and closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
Usually the closing of a prison camp for enemy combatants signals the end of the war, and since Obama has never acknowledged that the U.S.’s defense against the global jihad is a war at all, it is fitting that he should end his presidency by closing the camp that so notoriously demonstrated otherwise. And besides, the jihadi leadership ranks need replenishing.
Certainly Obama has replenished them a great deal already. With as many as thirty percent of prisoners freed from Gitmo returning to the jihad, one would think that the Obama administration would pause and consider their plan very carefully before releasing more or transferring them to far less secure prisons inside the United States.”
Opinion: We know from Bible prophecy that the wars of the last days are just in the beginning stages. That alliances prophesied 2500-3000 years ago are taking their positions and each one can be found in our paper Bible Prophecy 101, chapters 6-10, so I won’t list them again here.
What is important to remember is that the US is not mentioned in either war, and yet the destruction that is described is so devastating that it would be hard to imagine how it could happen without US technology and its vast nuclear arsenal and weaponry.
Here is what we know:
Psalm 83 describes a tight regional war with Israel and her immediate neighbors – no US involvement.
Ezekiel 38-39 describes a much larger war from the far north (Russia/Turkey) and south (North Africa) – still no US involvement.
Armageddon describes a global war with 4 power blocs – no US mention:
- King of the North: Northern coalition Russia, (Syria), Iran, Turkey (Ezek. 38:1-6)
- King of the South: Egypt, North Africa, (Dan. 11:36-39, 11:40)
- Western Alliance, Beast Army of Antichrist – revived Roman Empire (Psalm 2:1-4, Dan. 7:7, 23-24, Rev.16:14, 19:19)
- Kings of the East – China South East Asia (Rev. 16:12)
The Western Alliance, or Revived Roman Empire, will be so powerful that it will defeat the other 3 kings and do battle with Jesus Christ on His return.
It appears then, that the US (and its firepower) is part of the Western Alliance.
