Q. I’m curious as to your thoughts on the Israeli elections next week. If the left-leaning coalition wins, and Netanyahu is replaced as Prime Minister by Herzog, it would seem a potential major turning point with respect to end times prophecy, Israel’s future, and specifically, the division of Jerusalem.
A. I’m of the opinion that while the battles foretold in Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, and Ezekiel 38 will take place, the election of leaders who are more accommodating to Israel’s enemies will most likely hasten their arrival. I don’t believe Israel’s enemies want peace. I believe they’re looking for ways to weaken Israel in order to create an opportunity for a war they can win.
