ISRAEL WAS caught by surprise this morning as Hamas launched more than 5,000 rockets and crossed the border, reportedly abducting more than 50 Israelis to Gaza.
As of this recording, more than 100 Israelis are dead and another 900 injured. The Israeli government reports that Hamas terrorists have been engaged in 22 communities in southern Israel.
This is a fluid situation, so there is no breaking news here, but we try to make sense of this in light of world events and Bible prophecy. Is this the beginning of a Psalm 83 war, or could it be another front in the early days of World War III?
We know this: The fallen realm wants control of Jerusalem, and specifically the Temple Mount. However the current situation unfolds, the final battle of the age, Armageddon, will be fought there.
Until then, just remember Psalm 82:4–6:
He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
Then He will speak to them in His wrath,
and terrify them in His fury, saying,
“As for Me, I have set My King
on Zion, my holy hill.”
