This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
This weekend, Jews around the world celebrate the Feast of Purim. I find it ironic that the greatest current threat to the Jews smolders in the same nation that originally gave us the inspiring story of Queen Esther -- Persia or modern Iran.
Please pray as never before that God will protect His own, both in Israel and in Iran itself.
You can't miss it. The signs are everywhere. Interest in the future is growing... Nostradamus, the Mayan calendar, St. Malachy, Edgar Cayce. People everywhere sense that something is about to happen. They're nervous and they're searching for answers.
In the last part of the 20th century and into the 21st, it seems an entire industry sprang up to publish the "amazing" prophecies of Nostradamus. Amazing? At best, his quatrains are so nebulous that they can be interpreted myriad ways. Just the law of averages proves him "right" occasionally!
With the recent resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the world is also waiting to see if St. Malachy's extra-Biblical prophecy concerning the end of the succession of Popes will soon come to pass.
But if you want to talk about truly "amazing" prophecies, you have to talk about the predictions of the ancient Bible prophet Ezekiel. And unlike Nostradamus and the others, he wasn't afraid to name names! Ezekiel's prophecies pinpoint an exact time, place, and the precise historical conditions of a future world catastrophe. He names the peoples and nations involved in an intricate convergence of history. Out of a spectacular chain of eleven specific prophecies, we have witnessed ten come to exact fruition. And we see the eleventh taking unmistakable shape today. What's more, Ezekiel predicted all of these things more than 2,600 years ago!
If you haven't been quite convinced that we're barreling into the last laps of the race to Armageddon, you will be after I show you the stunning implications of "Ezekiel's Prophetic Enigma."
