My Bible Prophecy Commentary – Iran and the West:
Watch out! I am reminded of a story in the Bible found in 2 Kings 6. This is about Gideon who was told by the Lord to reduce his army from the original 22,000 men as it was too big. The ones who were fearful and trembled were sent home. 10,000 remained, but the Lord said to Gideon that was still too many. The final culling test was in how they drank from the water. The ones that kneeled down and lapped with their tongue, as a dog does, were set aside. The ones who lapped water putting their hands to their mouths was 300. These were kept and the others sent home. You see these 300 as they drank were constantly aware of what was going on around them – alert and wide awake. These because of their awareness could then be used by the Lord in Gideon’s army.
You decide – is the West becoming like the 300 or like the ones sent home?
Keep alert, keep watch, keep your eyes on Israel and keep in prayer.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” – Luke 21:28
