Hi friends! If you have followed news over the past week or so, you know that Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Sunni Arab nations have severed ties with another predominantly Sunni nation, Qatar (perhaps the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism). Time has prohibited me from developing explanation of those curious events, but I have discovered a terrific resource for the explanation: an update by Amir Tsarfati.
Thus, I refer you to one of his latest updates, specifically on the situation between the two Sunni rivals. It is a 45-minute video, though discussion of Saudi and Qatar begins just prior to the 13-minute mark. Fast forward to that mark if you are short on time.
Indeed, events in our world are lining up according to God’s Word! That should encourage us as Christians, as it points continually to how trustworthy God’s Word is. We can trust it…but we must study it.
These events also remind us that, ultimately, the objective is Jerusalem. For that reason, we must be faithful watchmen on the wall.
On your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the Lord in remembrance,
take no rest,
and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it a praise in the earth.
