All Nations of the World
In our last prophecy update we discussed how the usage of a vast underground water supply in the Negev was producing a large variety of foodstuffs across its surface. However, when one-third of the population of Israel is pushed into the Negev by the Antichrist in the middle of the Tribulation Period, the initial food supply and production will only be sufficient for a few months initially, and it will take a year to bring it to adequate levels for such a rise in numbers. So, for a few months, additional food will be provided by the "they" found in verse 6 of the 12th chapter of Revelation: "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that THEY should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days." The answer, as to who the "they" represents, is to be found in the preceding verse 5, where the word "NATIONS" acts as the precedent to the word "THEY" in verse 6: "And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all NATIONS with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5). Remember, in the initial attack of the Antichrist from Syria, all the nations of the world are not involved. All the nations of the world do not become involved until some three years later at the final battle identified as Armageddon. So the "they" in verse 6 refers to nations from the free world. Such nations as the United States, England, Canada, and Australia, will airlift food, clothing, and shelters to Israel in the Negev during this critical period of shortages. The Antichrist, since he has previously overrun the fertile and industrial heartland of Israel, will seek to gain world approval of his actions by appearing, at this point, to be a merciful conqueror, and will not contest this airlifting of foodstuffs to the Negev. In fact, his aircraft will be under orders not to fire on any foreign aircraft for fear of getting involved in a war with the western powers. As I informed you in previous prophecy updates, the Antichrist will be well aware of the defenses in the Negev, and will have no desire to penetrate any further south than Beersheva. But at the end of the Tribulation Period, he will send out a call to the European mainland, all the nations once under the Soviet Union, Russia, and all the countries of Asia and Africa, and many will come to this final great battle: "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." (Revelation 16:16).
