Financial Times – ‎5 June 2011

Fears are growing of a power vacuum in Yemen after the president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, and several senior government ministers fled to Saudi Arabia on Saturday…

William Hague, the UK foreign secretary, told the BBC he was “very worried” about the threat to Britain if Yemen descending into chaos, describing it as “a much more serious threat’’ to UK national security.”

More and more governments have changed in the Middle East.  As I have long written here, I believe that they will be mainly replaced by semi-secular governments that ultimately will not deliver what the people want, and then be replaced by governments that will support a pan-national Islamic leader.

Ultimately the Bible tells of an Arabic confederation that will rise up with a leader that it calls the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).  The events in Yemen are one more step in that direction.

Africa: Its Biblical Past and Prophesied Future What does the Bible teach about Africa and its future? Did the early Church reach Africa? Will God call all the Africans?
