With all that’s going on in the world it’s only natural for people to ask… are we living in the end times? This message lays the ground work for a future message I’m planning entitled, “End of Days”. Understanding the history behind the promise land and God’s chosen people is critical in understanding the answer to this question. Almost every war that breaks out in the middle east ties back to God’s original promise to the Israelites. In this message I will lay out why there is so much conflict in the middle east, and give a brief summary of how this all began as it relates to Bible prophecy. This is the Matthew 7 project, and this message is entitled, “Tensions in Israel and Bible Prophecy”.
