Israeli citizen and Middle East expert Avi Lipkin has quite the track record of accurate prognostication. So when we asked him if World War III was upon us his response was more than a bit interesting. Avi is no prophet, but recent events in the Middle East have students of Bible prophecy “looking up” like never before. Russia now has military control over the airspace over Syria as they defend the Assad regime—right on Israel’s northern border. Turkey shot down a Russian jet and is now on high alert, facing economic sanctions from Russia. The Palestinian Authority may be on the brink of extinction; the US seems to have given up on Middle East peace as the refugees pour in and Iran moves forward with their nuclear testing, completely ignoring UN mandates. What in the world is going on? Could we be right on the verge of World War 3?
