Israel’s present problems prophesied in the Bible

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Bible Prophecy

Reading Genesis 16:9-12, I realized that passage is a prophecy of what’s happening in today’s world. Genesis 16 is the story of Hagar. When Abraham was called Abram, God tells him that he and his wife will have a child. Abram was 90 and his wife Sarai was 80 – a little late to have a kid. So Sarai get’s the bright idea to have her husband lie with her Egyptian maidservant, Hagar and they had a son, Ishmael, which means “God hears.”
