A reader’s thoughts about the Middle East, the Parallels and Reliving the 1930s


I’m writing to throw out some thoughts for your readers to ponder, because I’ve been wondering if anyone else had noticed these things, too.

For instance, over the last several years, I've been fascinated by the Middle East. Since becoming a believer in YHWH, I've realized that the events in the Middle East (ancient AND modern) have repercussions on the rest of the planet (Genesis 10:1-4, Genesis 10:8-12, Genesis 10:25, Genesis 11:1-32, Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 16:12, Genesis 19:24-26, Genesis 36, Genesis 46, and Joshua 10:13-14). 

People do mock me over this. Regardless of where we live, we must realize YHWH is in control and that events in the Middle East are still forecast to happen in the not too distant future (Yeshayahu 17, Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38 and 39, Joel 3:12 and Revelation 16:12).

I’ve also been wondering if anyone else has noticed the pararallels between the Islamic world and the actions of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan? I see many parallels. The actions of Hamas and Hezbollah as well the rhetoric of Iran's Revolutionary Guard mirror that of Hitler and the Third Reich. Islamic suicide bombers mirror the tactics of Imperial Japan's kamikaze pilots crashing their planes into Allied warships. I hope many more out there come to YHWH while there is still time. The Prophetic Clock is ticking. YHWH isn't messing around.

Lastly, does it seem to you as if we re repeating the events of the 1930s?  Every day, I see reports on the Israel-Hamas war while surfing the web. Rampant Anti-Semitism spreads like a virus (like other perversions such as homosexuality and drug-use). May I please obtain some insight into this? I know that we are living in the End Times and that the days are likened to the days of Noah and Lot. I know we must do our best to be Set Apart, especially right now and do our best to focus on YHWH and His Word and stay away from darkness, deception, falsehoods, lies and ignorance.


These are some very deep and appropriate thoughts to ponder, and I agree with everything you wrote.  I would love to hear from our other readers, to get their perspective on this!


  1. In ancient times, YHWH used the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Egyptians and the Persians to show His Sovereignty to the world. In today's world, YHWH uses the peoples from the same geographic area surrounding Israel (Arabs as well as the Iranian and Turkic peoples) to show His Sovereignty to wake up the blind and deaf of the world.

  2. In order to understand the Middle East and how it affects the rest of the planet, we need to look beyond assumption, conjecture, opinion and speculation. We need to factor in eyewitness accounts, historical accounts, historical documents, observation and research. Most important, we need to look to what YHWH and His Word says (Yeshayahu 34:16, Joel 3:9, Mattithyahu 24:6 and Revelation 6:4).
