Nuggets from "Judgment Day: Islam, Israel, and the Nations" by Dave Hunt

What could be more foolish than for mere men to judge God? If the Bible is God’s Word, it is all true; if not then let’s stop honoring it, the God who claims to have written it, and the Christ it tells us about, and let’s honestly admit that Christianity is a dangerous delusion.

The climax of all prophecy involves Jerusalem and occurs in what is referred to as “the day of the LORD,” also called “that day.”… The question is often asked, “Is the United States in Bible prophecy?” Yes. All nations (and that must include the United States) will join together under Antichrist in one massive attack upon Israel and Jerusalem at the end of the Great Tribulation. Christ will intervene to rescue His people, destroying Antichrist’s armies and kingdom at Armageddon.

God says, “I will gather all nations.” But isn’t Satan the one who hates Israel and who will continue to attempt to destroy her to the very end? Doesn’t he gather all nations against Israel under his false messiah, the Antichrist? How can God and Satan be working together? They cannot. God uses Satan and his followers, but He does not inspire Satan to evil – that is Satan’s nature.

Nor does God even encourage, much less cause, anyone to seek to destroy Israel. He allows this hatred against Israel to be vented in order for the truth about the human heart to be revealed. He also allows it as part of His judgment upon Israel. That judgment is clearly spelled out in the prophecies given by Israel’s own inspired prophets. It was Israel that gave us the Bible and the Messiah. The Bible’s attention is focused on Israel from beginning to end. The current Middle East crisis is unfolding exactly as the Bible foretells. Based upon overwhelming evidence, one cannot avoid the conclusion that the grand finale of “last days” prophecies is drawing very close.
