The death of ex-Libyan leader Col. Muammar Khaddafi is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
After 42 years of a treacherous dictatorship in Libya, the former dictator Col. Khaddafi, has been killed by the opposition that brought down his decades old regime. Khaddafi's death is an end to a terrible time for his people but the beginning of the future for the liberated nation, a future that is very uncertain at this time. Col. Khaddafi had stockpiled a large arsenal of chemical weapons and various other military munitions over the years. The big question today is who is controlling this vast arsenal and could it get into the hands of radical terrorist elements in our world? Another very important question is who is the opposition that brought down Khaddafi? We do know there is a radical Islamic element that played a key role in the overthrow of Khaddafi.
Of great interest to students of Bible prophecy is the fact that the name of one of the nations that moves in the last days to destroy the Jewish state of Israel is Libya, used in the book of Daniel 11:43 and Ezekiel 38:5. Both of the Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel include Libya in the coalition of nations that endeavor to wipe Israel off the face of the earth in the last days. Libya and the other nations listed in Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83 will make their strike on the Jewish state of Israel when there is peace in place in the Middle East (Ezekiel 38:8,11).
The world stage is indeed set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
