Is it the End of the World?


No Weapon Formed

Another sure sign that we are living in the biblical last days is seen in Israel’s coastal plain, where most of the country’s population resides. Tel Aviv, the second-largest city, with over 400,000 residents, is home to much of Israel’s military industrial complex, and its high-tech industry.

Iran in particular has promised to wipe Israel off the map, an incredible threat that the international community does not take seriously. Should the Iranians (or anyone else capable) launch a nuclear missile strike against Israel, the coastal plain would be target number one.

I do not worry though about Israel being wiped off the map, and my view has very little to do with making such a prediction from the safe confines of the U.S. I don’t worry about it because God has promised to protect Israel supernaturally. (See Isaiah 54:17).

Tel Aviv isn’t going anywhere.
