Ancient Prophecies Point
Toward London Bombings, Hurricane
Dennis As Judgment Warnings
By Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst
WASH--Jul 13—KIN— The recent terrorist attacks in London and Hurricane Dennis that hit the Florida Panhandle, occurred within days of one another, are possible warning signs of supernatural judgment as predicted by prophets some 2,500 years ago.
Both the United States and Great Britain share many things in common. First, there is a common ancestry, both in genetics, religion, societal norms and in laws and government. Both countries, for example, based their legal governance upon the principles of the Ten Commandments. English Common Law is derived from the Decalogue and American law is derived both from English Common Law and the Ten Commandments.
Both countries are the West’s representatives on the Middle East Quartet—the so-called peace-making body established to bring an end to hostilities between Israel and the Palestinian terrorists. This group, comprised of the United States, Britain, Russia and the United Nations, led primarily by U.S. President George W. Bush and U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair have demanded and pressured Israel to unilaterally give up God’s covenant land to the Palestinian terrorists in order to foment peace and establish a Palestinian state, “living side by side in peace with Israel.”
Both nations are also the lead invaders against Islamist terrorists, fighting the war on terror in the Iraqi front, sandwiched between Syria and Iran, flanked by the tiny nation of Israel.
All these similarities have prophetic import. Great Britain and the U.S. have turned their backs on the basis of their legal system, supporting abortion on demand, promoting homosexuality and, even worse by Biblical standards, rejecting God in the public square and replacing Him with secularism and humanism. In America, just weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Ten Commandments could only be displayed on public property if there were no religious intent behind the context of their display. The High Court also ruled in a decision that abolished private property rights that the law must be interpreted based on the evolving needs of society.
The ancient prophecies in the Bible and in other writings predict warnings such as harsh weather, wars and pestilences to predicate God’s longsuffering anger to be released in judgment. Habakkuk wrote circa 612 B.C., “The law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.” And he prophesied the Lord’s reply in Habakkuk 1:5,6, “Look among the nations and watch—be utterly astounded! For I will work a work, in your days, which you would not believe, though it were told you. For indeed I am raising up the Chaldeans, a bitter and hasty nation, which marches through the breadth of the earth, to possess dwelling places that are not theirs.”
The Chaldeans were what is now modern Iraq, the mighty empire of Babylonia, who were conquered by Persia in 539 B.C., extending the Persian empire to the Mediterranean sea. These are the forefathers of Islam and those who history documents ruled over Israel after Israel turned away from its God in favor of paganism—a judgment of God against Israel as written in the Bible.
Turning away from God’s laws is just one way to set in motion judgment, according to the ancient prophets. Dividing the covenant land of Israel is yet another—something to which both the U.S. and the U.K. are also aspiring. The prophet Joel, who wrote around 600 B.C., said that God will be zealous for His land and pity His people and that (Joel 2:19) “I will send you grain and new wine and oil, and you will be satisfied by them; I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.” This, among many other prophecies, could have signaled the restoration of Israel that occurred at the hand of the United Nations on May 15, 1948.
But then there was a warning for those who would come against the covenant land of Israel—something that is echoed independently by several other prophets, including Ezekiel and Zechariah in and around 600 B.C.: “I will restore you to the years that the swarming locust has eaten (locust was often a reference to Arabs like the Chaldeans)…I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshapat; And I will enter into judgment with them on the account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations.”
Zechariah prophesied, “And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Certainly, the consequence of dividing Israel once she is reestablished is dire. Both the U.S. and the U.K. are among the chief nations who are attempting to divide Israel and give the land to form a Palestinian state, comprised of Israel’s stated enemies. The Bible is full of references showing God is slow to anger with many warnings prior to meting out judgment.
A study of both secular and Biblical history would find it more than coincidence that the U.S. and U.K. are fighting against terrorism in Iraq, the very place where 2,500 years ago, the Chaldeans were used to render judgment upon an Israel who had turned its back on God, allowed its laws to become secular and humanist and evolving without justice, and would only be restored with true repentance. Secular historians would say simply that history is repeating itself. Some Bible scholars and students of eschatology may very well say this is a type and shadow of coming judgment against the U.S. and U.K. for its sins of abortion, homosexuality, paganism and trying to divide God’s covenant land. And that news events such as the London terrorist bombings and Hurricane Dennis are just warning shots fired across the bow of contemporary times.
