Q. I’ve read where some other prophecy teachers say the world is now at the point where Ezekiel 38-39 wars and/or Psalm 83 wars could happen, everything in perfect alignment, but before the next steps, the Rapture. In a nutshell, do you believe the world stage is now set for these wars, or do you believe there are still other conditions that need to be met?
A. I think the stage is set for the Battle prophesied in Psalm 83, but I don’t think we’re quite ready for Ezekiel 38. In my opinion Israel has to be living in a perceived state of peace, so much so that they’ll be taken by surprise when the Muslim coalition attacks. Quoting Gog, Ezekiel wrote, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will invade a peaceful and unsuspecting people – all of them living without walls and without gates and bars” (Ezekiel 38:11) I don’t believe that’s the case in Israel today, but it could be after their victory in the battle of Psalm 83.
