Mat 24:6-7 a "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom."
Since WW2, the powerful and rich US using UN Human rights (the West) had been slowly imposing some abominable and unacceptable rules. Towards the end of the century, this started the suspicious relationship between the West (US as the big bully) and the rest of the world (esp the Muslim and Communist world).
On Sept 11, 2001 al Qaeda terrorists attacked Pentagon and brought down the twin towers killing 3K people. 14 out of the 19 involved were Saudis (Wahhabi Muslim). Osama bin Laden founded 'Al Qaeda' in Saudi Arabia in 1988. Immediately President Bush condemned Iran, Iraq (for conquering Kuwait in 1990) and North Korea as 'Axles of evil' but not the rich Saudi Arabia (the real Islamic extremist). US invaded Afghanistan on Oct 7, to get Osama bin Laden. On March 20, 2003, US invaded Iraq, wrongly accusing Iraq (even though Sunni doesn't associate with Wahhabi) of assisting al Qaeda and also in possession of WMD. After the death of Saddam Husain (Sunni), Zarqawi merged with al Qaeda to form 'Al Qaeda in Iraq', the present IS, who promised to destroy US and the West for mistakenly destroying Iraq who had no WMD. US warned Iran of the possibly of attack on their nuclear sites if there were signs of Iran making WMD (nuclear bomb).
Rumours of wars
Since the formation of the nation of Israel, the neighbouring Arab states had been threatening to annihilate Israel. Their few futile attempts and subsequent defeats were costly and humiliating to them.
After the revolution and removal of the Shah of Persia (a puppet of US) in 1979, the new Islamic Republic of Iran was targeted by US as an enemy. Iraq (an ally of US then) then attacked Iran and the war lasted from 1980-1988. US and UN had been trying to destroy Iran nuclear sites by sending IAEA to verify their compliances.
However, leakage of Iran secretly making the nuclear bomb sent Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the rest of the Muslim Sunni world into the 'panic drive', and they called for the destruction of all Iranian's nuclear sites. On Nov 8, 2011, as the world awaited IAEA's news of Iran intention of making nuclear weapon and rumours of Israel supported by Saudi Arabia imminent attack of Iran nuclear sites, heavy snowfalls covered Teheran and many parts of Iran preventing any aerial attack.
In recent years, the new favorable nuclear deals of US and UN with Iran enraged the neighbouring Arab nations.
2015 Feb 26, "The Saudis have declared their readiness for the Israeli Air Force to overfly Saudi air space en route to attack Iran if an attack is necessary," an unnamed senior European diplomat was cited as saying by Israel's Channel 2 News.
WND VIDEO, 2015 April 4.
EGYPT TV TO ISRAEL: 'TRUST IN GOD AND BOMB' IRAN. An Egyptian television personality sent Israel some strong signs of support for any possible Jewish state move that could lead to an attack on Iran, telling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly: Go ahead and bomb.
These are the fulfillments of bible prophecies of wars and rumours of wars in the last days.
Brethren, the next prophecy is
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
and how and when will they be fulfilled?
