Section B – Rumors of wars
Now in part three of this series I used this as an example. At that time I showed that this world in general has constantly been in a state of wars and rumors of wars. I also established that at the beginning of 20th century things start to change. Here things called “world wars” took place. Something that had never been even thought possible before that war actually occurred. It must also be pointed out that it was due to events that took place in this first of two world wars that laid the foundation for the return of the Jewish people to the lands that was theirs up until 70 A.D.
An uneasy peace took place between 1918 and 1939, which was really a time of rebuilding and restocking more than an actual peace. As a result the Second World War took place, which resulted in the death of over eighty million lives worldwide and in particular the death of over six million Jews. It was the death of the latter that resulted in making the Jewish people to return to their homeland to escape a future rise in anti-Semitism, which has been on the rise since 2009 due in large part by the election of president Obama. A person who made it clear that he hated the nation of Israel and everything it stood for.
At the end of the Second World War, the world has never known peace. There have been wars and rumors of wars. The United States has been involved in two wars that the same time since 9/11/02 and in reality we still are.
It must also be noted that this verses itself has a division.
Matthew 24:6 – And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”
In the KJV it is:
6 – And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom”
Nation – ethnos – a race, people, nation; the nations, heathen world, Gentiles
Kingdom – basileia – kingship, sovereignty, authority, rule, especially of God, both in the world, and in the hearts of men; hence: kingdom, in the concrete sense
So let’s use this in the verse now:
For races of people will rise up against other races and countries shall rise up against other countries.
This has always been an issue, but within the last eight years that has been amplified by the previous leadership of the United States. It is also being seen in Europe. A prime example of this was the 2016 New Year’s rape parties of Muslim men that went through the streets of Germany raping German national females.
So this prophecy has come to pass and is still present with us today.
So both the prophecies of Section A and Section B are fulfilled and ongoing.
