Holding Back the King of the South—Temporarily

North Africa is currently suffering through its worst convulsions of political upheaval since the Arab Spring in 2011. Back then, the United States enacted a policy that backed the protesters’ right to remove their leaders from power.

As foretold by the Trumpet, the radical Islamist camp used the democratic process to gain power in Egypt and promote a strong alliance with Iran. This essentially gave Iran access to North Africa, a necessary victory to fulfill Bible prophecy.

Although the Islamist camp in Egypt fell a year later, the events of the Arab Spring offered profound insight into Iran’s desire for power over North Africa, something the Bible says it must achieve in order to trigger World War III.

On today’s show, Middle East correspondent Brent Nagtegaal discusses how events in North Africa may signal the end of U.S. President Donald Trump’s ability to hold back Iran.
