“There will be wars and rumours of wars.”-Jesus.
We need not search obscure Scripture passages to find if the latest Middle Eastern conflict is found therein; Jesus’ declaration tells us enough. “War” is a characteristic of this present evil age, another indicator of mankind’s deadly disease, another marker for Adam’s transgression.
Hope lies in the Last Adam,Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace who causes wars to cease.
Do we do nothing in the meantime? No. We do what prayerfully our conscience dictates. But realise that there is a far bigger war going on, the war between the Dragon and the Lamb. Of that war, the victory is not in doubt, for it has been decided:”….. I saw a Lamb standing as though it had been slain.”
That is the Good News to share in this present evil age.
