The Revelation is coming when the US is backing Israel in its bombardment of Gaza since Hamas launched an attack on some Israelis on Saturday, October 7.
Prophet Joshua Iginla, the leader and founder of Champions Royal Assembly, earlier urged world leaders to ensure that the ongoing war between Israel and Gaza did not become World War III.
In a video posted on the church's YouTube page, the cleric said he saw "a big battle coming. It is like a pandemic, not of sickness but of guns, an exchange of superpowers".
