When Empires Die: Thoughts on the Centennial of World War I

The Sykes-Picot Agreement:  Original plan devised in 1916 gave Area A to France and Area B to Britain.  Subsequent adjustments (1917-1922) created the borders of Syria, Iraq, Trans-Jordan (Jordan), Lebanon, and Palestine,  Current borders of Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan resulted from and the Arab-Israeli wars of 1947-48, 1956, 1967, and 1973.

Current borders of Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan resulted from and the Arab-Israeli wars of 1947-48, 1956, 1967, and 1973.

June 28, 2014, marked the centennial of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  His death was the first act in a series of events that brought the onset of World War I exactly one month later, on July 28, 1914.  That was brought changes to the world which are with us to this day.  The borders of the Middle East, for example, derive from the Sykes-Picot Agreement concluded by Great Britain and France as a plan to divide the lands of the Ottoman Empire.  Those borders are now in the process of revision as war and upheaval have visited the Middle East on a scale unseen since World War I.

This series of articles begins with an investigation of the causes and results of the Great War, or the “War to End All Wars” as it came to be called.  The series continues with examination of the astounding series of parallel developments taking place in this summer of 2014 from a Hebraic biblical perspective, with a view toward how these events fit in prophecies of the end of this age.

Part I.  The Road To Sarajevo.

Part II.  Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration).

Part III.  What Has Been Done Will Be Done Again.

Part IV.  Babylon At The Abyss.

Part V.  The Last Summer Of The World.

Part VI.  To Survive The Coming Night.

This series is also accessible as a single (but very long) document here.
