ISIS: The Armies Of The North

Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them. And I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast, nor his image, nor had received his mark upon their foreheads or on their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

 Seems as though we are witnessing the fulfillment of end time prophecy in Syria and Iraq. Jordan will be next, where approximately 500,000 refugees from Syria and Iraq, having fled the violence, will once again be subjected to the threat of violence. After Jordan is Israel.

 Luke 21:20 “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh."

 What is ISIS trying to accomplish?
 It wants to establish an Islamic caliphate, or state, stretching across the region.
 In the words of the Soufan Group, a political risk consultancy, "ISIS has become indisputably the most effective and ruthless terrorist organization in the world."

 The Islamic caliphate includes the historical lands of Babylon. Why does this matter?

 Revelation 18:2 "And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, 'Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. '"
Daniel 11:15 "So the king of the north shall come and cast up a mound, and take the most fortified cities; and the armies of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand."

 If you are still having trouble seeing a pattern, there is this passage as we read a little further into Daniel.

 Daniel 11:31 "And armies shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place there the abomination that maketh desolate."

Pray, pray hard. And I leave you with this: Revelation 2:10 "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer. Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried, and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of Life."

God bless you all!
