No One Gave Support: A Foreshadowing of World War III
In Christ’s 2nd coming, he saves the Jewish people from annihilation. When the nations surrounding Israel have moved in for the kill, Israel’s heart turns to her Messiah, and he returns to save her. But upon his return, he is appalled that no nations are standing with the Jewish people. Let’s look at God’s words:
I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm [God’s “arm” is a Biblical reference to Jesus Christ] worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me. I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground.” ~ Isaiah 63:5-6
With this scenario in mind, let’s now consider Ecclesiastes 1:9.
“There is nothing new under the sun.” ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9.
That is, history repeats itself over and over. Satan, in the form of Leftist and Islamist intellectuals, dresses up the same old demonic, genocidal, seething hatred of Jews in “new” packaging and labels it a “peace plan” or a “solution.” Combining Ecclesiastes 1:9 with Isaiah 63:5-6, we should be able to see, somewhere in history, a foreshadowing of the end-times scenario whereby the Jewish people are surrounded, attacked, and marked for genocide. We should also be able to see that during this time, “no one gave support” to the Jews, and that “there was no one to help” the Jews. Have we seen such a foreshadowing anywhere in history? Yes, we absolutely have.
World War II was a foreshadowing of World War III. The world stood silent as Jews were attacked, put into ghettos, and then put into ovens. The title of this collection of poetry by Sephardic Jews during the holocaust of World War II is stunningly similar to the words Isaiah uses to describe the Jewish predicament in World War III.
“the world stood silent”
“there was no one to help”
“no one gave support”
When his chosen people are involved, God gives historical hints and foreshadowings so that anyone willing to look (which is almost no one), can search the scriptures, and compare them with past world events concerning the Jews, to identify future world events concerning the Jews. To wit, just as the world did nothing as Hitler’s National Socialist Party (with Islamist support) built it’s genocide machine to snuff out the Jews, so the world will do nothing as Islamists build their genocide machine (with socialist support) to snuff out the Jews.
Let’s take a closer look at the verses from Isaiah 63:
I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me. I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground.” ~ Isaiah 63:3-6
I have looked at these verses in several different English translations of the Bible, and I have looked at the Hebrew. I have parsed it, pondered it, and picked it apart. I wanted to believe that the USA would be the exception to the underlined verses, that the USA would defend Israel, that the USA would stand with God. But at the end of the day, I believe God is clearly stating that no nation will be on his side during the time spoken of in these verses. This was a very gloomy prospect to me, until I thought about what happened in World War II.
So, what happened in World War II? No one, including the USA, of their own volition came to the aid of the Jews! “No one gave support.” European leaders practically begged the socialist president of the USA, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), to send the mighty American military to crush Hitler’s National Socialists. But he refused (hmm, a socialist American president refuses to confront Hitler’s National Socialist party, shocking…). The Jews were marginalized, attacked, put into ghettos, and then put into ovens, and through it all, no one came to their rescue. No one gave support.
I am going to use the word “hubris” in this article. Hubris was a key demonic force in World War II, and it will be a key demonic force in World War III. Therefore, before going any further, let me define it.
Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.
Since hubris is defined as extreme pride, let’s see what the Bible says about pride.
Pride goes before destruction… ~ Proverbs 16:18
Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud… ~ Proverbs 18:12
Pride is not of God. It is of Satan and the flesh. These two scriptures proved to be an accurate narrative of what happened to the Axis Powers of World War II– Germany-Japan-Italy.
Now, even though FDR refused, of his own volition, to unleash the mighty U.S. military on Hitler, the Axis Powers committed two acts of colossal hubris that made it impossible for the U.S. to stay out of the war. These events will be replicated in World War III, with the same result– drawing the U.S. into a war that ultimately helps the Jewish people, even though the U.S., of its own volition, refused to fight.
Let’s look at the two acts that drew the U.S. into World War II, and the way they will replicate to draw the U.S. into World War III.
- World War II: One socialist power (Hitler’s National Socialist Party) attacked another (Stalin’s Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) in a bid for dominance.
- World War III: One Islamic coalition (headed by Turkey, and called “the king of the North” in Daniel Chapter 11) will fight another (headed by Egypt, and called “the king of the South” in Daniel Chapter 11) in a bid for dominance. The Turkish-led coalition will win. (He [the king of the North, the Antichrist] will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Nubians in submission. ~ Daniel 11:42-44)
- World War II: The forces jockeying for world domination attacked the U.S. at Pearl Harbor.
- World War III: The forces jockeying for world domination will attack the U.S. (He [the Antichrist] will attack the mightiest fortresses [USA] with the help of a foreign god [that is, foreign to Israel. This is Allah.] and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price. ~ Daniel 11:39)
Hitler’s National Socialist Party attacked Stalin’s Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Now, Because the USSR was even more Leftist than Nazi Germany, and Stalin an even bigger lunatic than Hitler, this move infuriated the American Left, and when the Left is infuriated, they mobilize. The American Left, which had vehemently opposed U.S. involvement in World War II, now demanded it. Unopposed evil always metastasizes into self-destructive hubris. To wit, the hubris of the Axis Powers (Germany-Japan-Italy) did not stop with the attack on the USSR. No, it led them to attack the USA as well:
The Nazi attack on the Soviets started the snowball of American military power rolling downhill toward Hitler, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was Hitler’s death warrant– which brings us back to the Bible.
Regarding the end-times war, World War III, the Bible warns that a profoundly evil man leads a coalition that conquers lands, builds an empire, makes the Jewish people the target of his fury, and bites off more than he can chew by attacking a mighty nation that destroys his empire in retaliation. Sound familiar?
World War II was a foreshadowing of World War III.
The Bible also says that no one, of their own volition, will give support as the Jews are surrounded and attacked in the end-times war (exactly as happened in World War II). Finally, the Bible says that God himself will bring mighty nations against the enemies of the Jews in the end-times war.
“‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘Because you [the Antichrist] think you are wise, as wise as a god, I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of nations [USA]
they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor.
They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. Will you then say, “I am a god,” in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a man, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you. You will die the death of the uncircumcised at the hands of foreigners. I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.'”
No one will give support to God and the Jewish people against the Antichrist, but God will use the Antichrist’s own hubris against him to draw America into the fight– the same set of circumstances we saw in World War II. The Antichrist’s empire will attack the United States of America, even though the USA will have done nothing to provoke his aggression. Indeed, not only will the USA have done nothing to provoke the Antichrist, but if the current trend continues, the USA will actually be courting the Antichrist’s affection, but to no avail. By this unprovoked attack, the USA will arouse from its sleep and destroy the Antichrist and his forces.
The Bible is always proven true.
