Trayvon Martin Case: Nation Against Nation(Ethnic versus Ethnic Group)

Jesus said in Matthew 24:7, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.” In this scripture the Lord is speaking about the “end of this age.” The focus of this verse is the rising of one nation against another. The Greek word for nation is “ethnos."  It means race or tribe. In other words, Jesus was prophesying that at the end of the age there would be an increase in racial/tribal conflict between ethnic groups. Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamashiach) is not only the Savior, He is the "greatest Prophet" ever born.  There is no one person greater than He. His prophecies haven't fallen to the ground.

How is nation rising against nation relevant for today's times? One prime example is that of the Trayvon Martin Case.  George Zimmerman killed Trayvon after being told by police dispatcher to not to pursue him.  Zimmerman was later found not-guilty on July 13th, 2013. 

This verdict has caused an uproar across this nation and racial tension across the country.

The major media outlets have played the role of "Devil's Advocate" by fanning the flames of racial tension between blacks and whites.  They predicted even before the trial was over that there would violent riots across the nation if the verdict came back not guilty.  Since the trial, there have been peaceful protests in regards to the verdict, with a few exceptions of protesters getting out of hand in Los Angeles and Oakland.  Frankly Satan is attempting to use this in hope that it would spiral into some type of chaotic race war to begin in this country. 

That is why as the Church we must continue to pray for the Martin family and that the situation doesn't boil over to the point of no return.  Even George Zimmerman needs prayer for salvation in Jesus Christ.  What we are seeing is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy right before eyes.  Remember, Jesus prophesied over 2,000 years ago that there would be greater amounts of  racial conflict between ethnic groups in the world.  This is just one more reason to remain prayerful and pray in the Holy Ghost!
