The Times Of Israel: “Bashar Assad can relax. Barack Obama blinked, and entrusted the decision on whether to attack Syria to Congress. It may be that this was a necessary step from Obama’s point of view. It may be that it was a wise decision politically, in an America traumatized by Iraq and Afghanistan. But the smiles on the faces of decision-makers in Syria, Lebanon and Iran, on hearing Obama’s Saturday speech, tell their own story.
Until Saturday, Obama’s Middle East policies were generally regarded by the Arab world as confused and incoherent. As of Saturday, he will be perceived as one of the weakest presidents in American history.”
Opinion: Nature abhors a vacuum. We are only 9 months into the second term and the world has figured it out. The US is a shell of its former self. The progressive left politicians, aided and abetted by the mainstream media, are laying the groundwork for the final wars of mankind.
Yeah, it’s that serious. Somewhere in the footprint of the Holy Roman Empire (Daniel 9:26) a young politician is watching a new global order emerge. The Post American World (book in photo) will sputter and stumble until a strong leader rides in on a White Horse (Revelation 6:2) with the promise of peace and order.
Beginning with Psalm 83:1-8, the nations will think it is just another Arab/Israeli conflict. But as the war escalates and Isaiah 17:1 is fulfilled, fear of the things coming upon the earth (Luke 21:26) will become a reality.
The global leader will convince the nations to give him control of the nuclear arsenals so that no other nation will witness the total destruction of its capital. He will enforce a 7 year peace treaty (Daniel 9:27) that had previously been drafted promising peace, and propose a new global currency to replace the crumbling US dollar.
His government will be different from all others, and very soon after assuming power by global mandate will become “exceedingly dreadful,” Daniel 7:19.
(Bible scholars are divided on the timing of Psalm 83, whether it is pre or post-Rapture. Since the Bible does not tell us, we line up with the teaching (Walvoord) that Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 are pre-Rapture, while Ezekiel 38 and Armageddon are post-Rapture.)
