I was asked recently, “Is it true that Russia would supply arms to Middle East nations in war with Israel as taught in Scripture preceding the Return of Christ?”
The simple and straightforward answer in Scripture was a definite “no, nowhere in the Bible”; but with Christian myths and fictitious novels, “yes, a lot!”
Here was the warning from Christ Jesus our Lord on His return:
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:18-20
It is important to note that Jesus Christ said “soon”, not today but two thousand years ago. And He made that promise to a real person, the apostle John, not just any John Doe today.
“And he (the angel) said to me (John), ‘These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants (John, included) what must soon take place.’ ‘And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.’ I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me.” Revelation 22:6-8
For decades, perhaps centuries even, the same narrative has been repeated until recently. It’s truly pathetic and becoming like “the boy who cries wolf”.
For Jesus Christ attested to His disciples – that is, Peter, James and John, and the rest – saying:
“Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” Matthew 16:28
Are any of the apostles, to whom Jesus Christ gave the assurance of His return, still alive today?
Anyone who insists otherwise should debunk the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Would anyone dare to do so?
