One of the reasons I write so much about politics and the news is because the Bible predicted so many of these stories.
One of the things the Bible tells us to look for is the rise evil of our modern society, the falling away of the Church, the rise of Messianic Judaism, etc.... I can give you chapter and verse for most of the news stories from the Bible today -- that wasn't so easy to do as late as 10 years ago.
If you are an American you can be sure the Bible predicts the nation's rise and fall (Isaiah and Ezekiel). The end of American might is found in Ezekiel 39:6 -- a nuclear exchange between The U.S. and Russia. This war (Ezekiel 38 and 39) is the leading factor for the rise of the EU (Revived Roman Empire) as the world's leading nation before Yeshua's return.
So as you read your news keep in mind that these stories are leading to these future Biblical events; as well as world politcal leaders such as the merchants of Tarshish, the kings of the East, the king of the North, the king of the South, Gog and the KING OF KINGS and LORD of LORDS --Yeshua haMashiach.
