What is “the year-day system” of interpreting Bible prophecy?

One question visitors to Historicism.com (the parent site of ProphecyBlog.net) have asked me over and over again throughout the years is something like, “Why do you say all time periods in Bible prophecy should be interpreted taking a year of history for every day in the prophecy?” In other words, why should all Bible prophecy Read more about What is “the year-day system” of interpreting Bible prophecy?[…]

Israel Was Never the Problem

A thought-provoking article was posted last week in Canada’s National Post online: The Arab world may be in turmoil, but none of the Arab uprisings has included Israel as a central issue. Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Libya — the one factor common to all is that protests centre on local conditions and domestic grievances. What Read more about Israel Was Never the Problem[…]

Introducing “Gomer and all his hordes”

For the first time in the context of 21st century political realities, France has taken a step forward as a de facto leader of European military intervention. An obscure bit of prophecy in Ezekiel 38:6 identifies a nation known as “Gomer”—an ancient reference to “The eldest son of Japheth, and father of Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Read more about Introducing “Gomer and all his hordes”[…]

Not All Is As It Seems… in Libya …in the Oval Office … or in the Future

Yesterday a Canadian General was appointed to command NATO forces in their war against Libyan President Muammar al-Qaddafi. But today FoxNews reports that Pentagon officials are now considering turning the NATO campaign into a ground war—not just the defense of a no-fly zone in Libyan airspace.

Obama’s Cowardice Leaves a Leadership Vacuum in the Middle East: Will Russia Fill It?

When the President of the United States bravely stands up and pushes for military intervention to protect the people of Libya from a murderous dictator, but then tries to shirk his responsibility to live with the consequences of leadership by withdrawing his service it is nothing less than cowardice on a global stage. President Obama’s Read more about Obama’s Cowardice Leaves a Leadership Vacuum in the Middle East: Will Russia Fill It?[…]

NATO Allies Prepare for War With Libya

In a unanimous decision no less breathtaking for being somewhat expected, the United Nations Security Council has approved military action against President Muammar Gaddafi, embattled dictator of the North African nation of Libya. Canada’s National Post reported Thursday evening that forces are being deployed for airstrikes and “necessary” actions—anything short of an occupation force.

Strategist Warns of Nationalistic Arab Rage Turning Against Israel

One strategist argued in a FoxNews piece, Wednesday, that in the wake of “eMageddon” uprisings threatening to engulf the Arab world, desperate rulers may seek their own survival by refocusing the rage of their citizenry against a common, much hated enemy: Israel. This does seem likely. After all, as the old adage goes, “the enemy Read more about Strategist Warns of Nationalistic Arab Rage Turning Against Israel[…]
