While Iran rattles its sabers in the Middle East new alliances are being formed between America, Israel and the Arab states of United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and a few other Arabian partners.. There is a scripture in Ezekiel 38 that is often overlooked and this new development could very well speak to this scripture.
“Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’” – vs. 13
While many scholars have wondered about the mystery of who Sheba and Dedan are it seems clear now who they are –
“Sheba and Dedan seem best described by the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and a few other Arabian partners. Because of their commitments to the US over the last seventy years, they will continue to side with the West, and the merchants of Tarshish, including the US and Western Europe. Right up until the time of the great invasion from the north, Arab determination to produce and sell oil will win out over their desire to be good Islamists.” – The Mystery of Sheba and Dedan by: Gary Stearman
These Arab states have been poor wanderers throughout the Middle East for most of their history but now they have become rich and powerful through their new found resource of oil, which the world needs. And Iran is seen as a direct threat to their kingdoms. So much so that they would put aside age old animosity’s and join with Israel for their own security.
As I have written in other posts, there is little doubt that the ‘Rosh’ of Ezekiel 38:2, 3 is modern Russia.
“Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.:
Of course, Tarshish refers to nations of the west and principally to England, which was known for its tin and lead. This source of tin was known to the Phoenicians as “Barath-anak“, which means ‘land of tin’. The Greeks interpreted this name as Britain. Herodotus also alludes to the British Isles as the ‘tin islands.’ That the United States is included is very clear as we are a “young lion” of the mother lion, England.
I used to believe Sheba, Dedan, and Tarshish only get involved in this war by diplomatic talk but, recent developments seem to imply their challenge to Gog goes much deeper – to the point of war.
If this is true, recent events happening in Syria have clear implications of a third world war about to break out and give much more meaning to Ezekiel’s warning –
“And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” – Ezek. 39:6
I won’t go into it here but, it is also clear that Ezekiel’s war begins the Tribulation period –
“And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord GOD, “that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ – Ezek. 38:18-20
This sounds very much like the 6th chapter of Revelation where the four horsemen begin a conflict that brings devastation and a great earthquake that darkens the sun and turns the moon to blood red and has world-wide negative impact. Soon after this time the Antichrist arises.
Russia and Iran moving into Syria, new alliances between Israel, the U.S., and many Arab states as well as recent heavenly signs of Blood Red Moons, the heavenly Virgin, Virgo and the sign of Taurus (Shur in heb.) all point to the soon conclusion of this age and the arising of an Antichrist.
Are you prepared?
