Christian evangelist and YouTube star Paul Begley believes the world is coming to an end and says that the catastrophic events of 2020 are clear signs.

Begley has cited the coronavirus pandemic and several eclipses as indicators of the end times on his YouTube channel with nearly 340,000 followers. Recently, he’s discussed how the Holy Land of Isreal might also be at play.

Violent clashes on the border is a premonition of things to come, he says. Earlier this week, the Isreal Defence Forces announced it had stopped an infiltration attempt by a Lebanese militant group after months of tension.

“The Bible told us that Israel was going to come under attack, without question,” he said.

Begley then quoted Zechariah Chapter 11, which contains references to fire devouring Lebanon. It says: “‘For I will no longer have pity on the people of the land,’ declares the Lord. ‘I will give everyone into the hands of their neighbours and their king. They will devastate the land, and I will not rescue anyone from their hands.'”

Begley claims the Bible predicted Lebanon being taken over by Hezbollah, the Lebanese militant group, and causing their own downfall in the Israeli border conflict.

“They have set themselves up for the slaughter, for the attack upon them, because they opened a door they shouldn’t have opened.”

He goes on to describe Israel as “the holiest place on Earth” and the location of a spiritual battle between good and evil that he believes is heating up and could result in apocalyptic scenes.

“This isn’t really about us, this is about God and Lucifer.”
