Libya’s Destiny According to Prophecy

And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.(Ezekiel 38:3-7)

Libya is in the news lately for obvious reasons. The popular uprising against the Gaddafi terrorist regime, the Savagery of Gaddafi himself, as well as the feckless quality of leadership displayed by the Obama administration, the bungled attempt at coalition building, and the debate as to the wisdom ,not to mention constitutionality of the intervention in the first place all make for an interesting situation.

God has plans for Libya, that are not as fickle as those of the Kings of the earth.  Libya is slated to go down to destruction as part of a coalition of nations armed and headed up by Russia and Turkey, and including Iran, Somalia, and Ethiopia in a catastrophic war against Israel, that will demonstrate to the world that the LORD is the only true God.

It is beyond interesting, it is distressing that the USA is lending its strength to make war on behalf of Al Qaeda, which is leading the opposition to Gaddafi, in the eastern province of Cyrenaica, a long known hotbed of Islamist fervor. We have aided Al Qaeda before, when we bombed our former allies the Serbs into ceding Kosovo to the Albanian branch of Al Qaeda,under the Clinton administration. Elections have consequences, but then again, God is Sovereign.

Did you notice that I said the Eastern province which is resisting Gaddafi in the name of Al Queda is Cyrenaica? Remember Simon of Cyrene? The man who carried Jesus’ cross was from Libya! At one time in the first three centuries, North Africa was the Christian center of the world.  There were several Cyrenians among the first disciples, and at Pentecost. But Libya has long been swallowed up in Islam’s tomb.

God says to Russia, that He is going to put a hook in his mouth and draw him out, down to the mountains of Israel, for his epic last battle.It is interesting that Vladimir Putin, condemned the Obama coalition for its bombing of Gaddafi’s strongholds, as being a “modern crusade”, words calculated to stir Islamic passions around the world against us.

Persia(Iran)  will be there also. Russia is a staunch ally of Iran, a nuclear enabler, and a devil’s advocate for the terrorist state of , resisting any sanctions against Iran, and is a chief armorer, as Ezekiel predicted,

Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.(Ezekiel 38:7)

The expression, “be thou a guard unto them” could as easily be rendered, “Be thou an armorer unto them”.

Gaddafi was and is a brutal terrorist, He was not made to pay on this earth for his crimes, such as the Lockerbie bombing that he ordered in which a plane load of innocent people was blown out of the sky. But God remembers and it is important to realise tat God is in these events, orchestrating all for his glory.

The battle ends poorly for the coalition, all but one sixth are destroyed in the mountains of Israel, for the Holy God takes an attack on Israel personally,

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;(Ezekiel 38:17-19)

All of the classic elements of Old testament warfare by God against pagan invaders comes into play, Lightening, thunder ,Hail, and the spectacle of Coalition armies trning on each other.The goal? all of the earth will know, and perhaps most importantly, Israel will again know that there is a God, and the LORD is He.

And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.(Ezekiel 38:21-23)

    Are we in Ezekiel 38 right now?

  2. Guy says:

    Indeed. Mankind’s freewill cannot stand against God’s will! Sometimes I am shocked that I am so accepting of the wickedness in the world, but God isn’t accepting of it at all.

  3. C Smith says:

    The impetus du jour is insurrection. Presidents and prime ministers and a far flung unity of nations are facilitating anarchy to their own ends. Facebook and Google are also complicit in fermenting rebellion. A plethora of “talking heads,” like an aviary of parrots, mimic the refrain, obvious to reason. And “He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh: The Lord will have them in derision” (Psalms 2:4).

    As Libya continues to affirm national sovereignty i.e., not only her right but responsibility to repress anarchy, the US, France, and UK, by launching a barrage of missiles, have imposed a greater tyranny then that they profess to oppose.
    Although Gadhafi may lack international “graces,” he is hardly to be compared with the Rome’s Nero during an era when the Apostile Paul pinned these words affirming “civil obedience,” rather than the always contemporary “civil disobedience”:

    “Let every soul be subject unto the higher [civil] powers [be it Nero or Gadhafi or Mubarak]. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God” (Romans 13:1).

    “Whosoever therefore resisteth the power [be it Thoreau or Gandhi or Martin Luther King], resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation” (Romans 13:2).

    “For he [Nero] is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil” (Romans 13:4).

    So as presidents and prime ministers and a far flung unity of nations perfect the art form of anarchy, there is an unseen reality “… we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

    “No,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton bluntly stated when asked on “Face the Nation” if the U.S. would intervene in Syrian unrest as in Libya. She defended her position by saying that the situations in Libya and Syria are respectively “unique.” Yes, they are unique, but not for reasons mentioned:

    Syria’s human rights record is among the worst according to Human Rights Watch. Syrian secret police detain, torture, and are suspect in the disappearance of an estimated 17,000 political prisoners. Libya, by comparison, is not even in the ball park.

    Syria, according to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), supports the following terrorist organizations: Hezbollah, the Iraqi insurgency, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Libya of course is culpable for Lockerbie, but even here Gaddafi personal sanction on the matter is debatable.

    Iran and Syria maintain a mutual defense agreement, while Iran and Libya are enemies with the former encouraging the West to arm their anarchist allies.

    Syria possesses weapons of mass destruction (chemical and biological) and the capability to deliver them according to U.S.defense and intelligence reports. However, a September 2007 Israeli air strike is generally credited with putting Syria’s nuclear program on hold. Libya, in stark contrast, has complied with the “world community,” and what was her reward, “decimation”:

    “On December 19, 2003, Libya announced it would dismantle its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and ballistic missile programs. Since then, U.S., British, and international officials have inspected and removed or destroyed key components of those programs, and Libya has provided valuable information, particularly about foreign suppliers. Libya’s WMD disarmament is a critical step towards reintegration into the world community…. ” (Sharon A. Squassoni and Andrew Feickert (Specialists in National Defense Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade Division), CRS Report for Congress, Disarming Libya: Weapons of Mass Destruction, September 22, 2006).

    Clinton’s unsubstantiated preference of Syria over Libya is not an error in judgment, but rather something more sinister:

    Frank Gaffney, a columnist at the Washington Times, recently made the obvious connection in an analysis titled “The Gadhafi Precedent.” Gaffney indicates that the hostilities initiated against Libya might soon be used to “justify and threaten the use of U.S. military forces against an American ally: Israel.” Actually, Gaffney was too restrained in his analysis. The coalition’s assault on Libya was a test run or perhaps a dress rehearsal of the “Expedient for Jerusalem”:

    Palestinian preparations for the opportune moment to initiate anarchy in Israel are complete, pending Secretary Clinton’s affirmation of the “Gadhafi Precedent.” However, the situations in Libya and Israel are respectively “unique”. Secretary Clinton and her coalition are unaware “the LORD hath chosen” Israel (cf. Deuteronomy 14:2), has “chosen Jerusalem” (cf. 2 Chronicles 6:6) and unto Abraham promised: “… all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever” (Genesis 13:15).

    Secretary Clinton and her coalition are also unaware the LORD doesn’t settles His accounts on Friday, but has chosen one DAY in all eternity to judge the earth. Yet as that DAY draws ever nearer “the kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us” (Psalms 2:2-3). And as Secretary Clinton and her coalition covertly prepare ambush for Israel, the LORD prepares the pit: “…I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people… and in that day will… make Jerusalem a burdensome stone… And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:2-9).

  5. C Smith says:

    Our president so time ago affirmed that he is ” a Christian by choice” and that his public service is part of an effort to express that “faith,” but how can we know if his unilateral decision to initiate war with Libya is of God?

    There is a very disturbing video circulating on YouTube, of a nature I cannot bring myself to watch. Reportedly, it graphically displays our Libyan “allies” committing atrocities against Gadhafi regulars clothed in dark green standard issue. War is war, but this savaging of Islamic brother by Islamic brother is something far more barbaric than war.

    So, how can we know if Our president’s unilateral decision to initiate war with Libya is of God? Mathew chapter seven provides the litmus test:

    “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits…. every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit…. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Mathew 7:15-23).

    “… wisdom is justified of her children” (Mathew 11:19 ).

  6. C Smith says:

    When Admiral James Stavridis, NATO’s supreme allied commander reported “flickers” of al Qaeda and Hezbollah involvement within ranks of the Libyan rebels, he was soundly reproved. National security officials quickly denied the affiliation, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton immediately mitigated the allegation. However, as the Western coalition continues to facilitate rebellion within the Arab League, a vacuum is undeniably being created. The obvious question: what is going to fill the vacuum? There is an obvious answer, but is won’t be forthcoming from Obama or Clinton, or Cameron or Sarkozy:

    “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation” (Mathew 12:43-45).
