The world is nervously watching the Middle East. Rocket attacks, suicide bombers, & clashes between Israeli forces with terrorist groups are common occurrences. Add to this explosive mixture the growing threat of nuclear weapons in the hands of radical Islamic nations & militias, & it is no wonder people everywhere are worried! However, the volatile Middle Eastern situation should not catch any Bible student by surprise because GOD has told us that Israel will be the center of great trouble & anxiety for the world until the end of the age. The Bible says that Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone for all people, & it is, & it will only increase in its burden as we approach the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Ladies & gentlemen, as you watch the news & read the newspaper, you are seeing the storm clouds of the Battle of Armageddon forming.
