Q. In the past, you’ve explained what the Bible has to say about the future of Lebanon and Egypt. Can you do the same for Libya?
A. Libya is mentioned 7 times in the Bible. Chronologically speaking, The earliest is in Genesis 10:6 identifying its patriarch, Put, as the 3rd son of Ham, a son of Noah. And the latest is in Ezekiel 38:5 where Libya (Put) is identified as part of the Moslem Coalition that will soon invade Israel. After that, there’s no further reference to Libya as a sovereign nation. The only subsequent mention of the Libyan people is that the anti-Christ will have them in submission during the Great Tribulation (Daniel 11:43).
I believe this means that Libya will come through its current crisis with its sovereignty intact and either retain Colonel Qaddafi as its leader or wind up with a replacement who’s just as bad from Israel’s standpoint. Libya will align itself with the Magog coalition and be utterly defeated, to the point where it will no longer be considered a nation.
