Since Libya and Gaddafi is so much on the news today, I’ve been finding prophecy news regarding the civil war all over the blogosphere. Joel Rosenberg, one of the most popular evangelical Zionists today, writes:

In Ezekiel 38-39, we learn that Libya is one of the nations that joins the Russian-Iranian alliance against Israel in “the last days.” … This tells us the no matter what the near term outcomes of the revolutions underway in North Africa are, in the not-too-distant future Libya for certain and possibly her neighbors will have virulently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel leadership who will eagerly join a coalition bent on destroying the Jews and occupy the land of Israel … Hopefully Gaddafi will be deposed and a more moderate leadership will rise up for a season before the prophecy of the “War of Gog and Magog” comes to fulfillment. Either way, the Church should be using this window of time to do everything possible to get the gospel into Libya and to strengthen the persecuted believers in Libya before the country faces God’s judgment for attacking Israel.

I don’t want to be “left behind” in all this excitement about the unfolding of prophecy right before our eyes on CNN and CBN, so I say, “Me, too!” Are dispensationalists the only ones who keep revising their prophecies? So here’s an update of two old posts regarding how Biblical prophecy must be interpreted.
