The situation between the USA and North Korea remain tense (see Russia warns of ‘apocalyptic scenario’ on Korean Peninsula). Furthermore, North Korea just successfully launched a more sophisticated ICBM that theoretically could hit any part of the USA (see North Korea launches more advanced missile; Hawaii taking steps). If the situation escalates to a full war in the future, many will die in North Korea and the USA will have losses.
In the Middle East, various Kurds are concerned that the USA will no longer support them as the Islamic State suffers more defeat (see AP: Syrian Kurdish official to US: Don’t turn your back on us). While the CCOG is not taking a political position on what the Kurds want, it should be pointed out the the USA has seemed to use the Kurds when convenient and ignored them when it wanted to. The Bible warns of judgment coming to “an hypocritical nation” (Isaiah 106, KJV) and how the USA has tended to treat the Kurds is simply one example of apparent USA hypocrisy.
Hundreds were killed by Islamic terrorists in Egypt last Friday (see Hundreds killed in Egypt). As many of you are aware, we in CCOG have been teaching that Islamic terrorism is likely to be a motivating factor for the rise of the final King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43) of biblical prophecy. This past Sunday:
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said the country’s two-year-old military coalition would “pursue terrorism until it is eradicated completely” http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/26/middleeast/saudi-arabia-crown-prince-terrorism-fight/index.html
While we do not yet have the formation of the final King of the South, some steps towards such a formation have been taking place (see also Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman pushing King of the South?).
On other matters, digital blockchain cryptocurrencies have been in the news (see CNN Money: There’s no stopping bitcoin right now.). Blockchain currencies may very well be used by the 666 Beast of Revelation 13:16-18 as our recent video “Blockchain, Karl Guttenberg, and 666” indicates.
