Seeing world-events through Armageddon Tinted Glasses

Here's what John Van Impe, whose website describes him as "the man known as the 'Walking Bible' and one of the world's foremost prophetic scholars," just look at the supposedly inspired armageddon tinted world-view he promotes to his audience:

Armageddon coalition forming

Syria, Iran and Turkey - three nations depicted in the Bible as forming an endtimes coalition against Israel - have put differences aside to establish themselves as a major regional power center, according to Intelligence Digest.

The prestigious journal warns that if Syria's President Hafez Assad can manage to bring Iraq into this coalition - with or without Saddam Hussein - western influence in the region will be thoroughly undermined. (Ezekiel 38:5)

If this doesn't get you trigger happy to get Armageddon started already, get a load of the answer to this question and answer by Van Imp:

Q: all your studies of the Bible is there any mention of where the United States will be before and after the Rapture? I have head a few pastors say there is no mention of it and some say we won’t be around.
- Kim Peterson

a: The United States will very definitely be around; you can find that in Jeremiah chapters 50 & 51 and Revelation chapter 18.

But, remember when Russia makes that move there are some nations that object and that’s Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof…” Look up Sheba in your dictionaries – its Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and they are going to go along with the American nations because Tarshsih there is Great Briton. The symbol for America is the great eagle, but the symbol for Britain in the great lion – and there is Tarshish with all her young lions – the English speaking nations of the world which of course takes in America, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, etc. So yes they will be here.

But there will be mass confusion in America because when the Rapture takes place this is the greatest Christian nation on the earth right now and when the Rapture happens there will be millions taken and there will be mass confusion here in this country.
