Understanding the Times
This year I'm studying the book of Revelation with Bible Study Fellowship https://www.bsfinternational.org/ . How does Revelation relate to todays' turmoil in the Middle East? Amir Tsarfati, at the Understanding the Times Conference, helps make sense of all that is happening. Amir joined the Israeli army in 1990 and underwent basic training during the first Gulf War. He served almost a year in the IDF Armored (Tank) Corps, and after graduating from the officer's academy in 1992, he was stationed in Jeri¬cho. Shortly afterward, the peace process began and Jericho was the first city transferred to the Palestinian Authority. Amir, then 21, was appointed as active Deputy Governor of Jericho and the Jordan Valley, also becoming one of Israel's military negotiators with the Palestinians. He served approximately six more months after the city changed authority before returning to civilian life. Since 2004, Amir has been consultant to various law enforcement agencies and seminars on homeland-security issues. In 2008 he was invited by the Rochester (NY) Police to lecture at a seminar on terrorism, as the keynote speaker at the Hostage Negotiators Conference. He also held a HLS seminar at the Philippine Military Academy. Here is a radio program where he explains the prophecies about Israel.
