The Contest of the Ages

Iran-nuclear-clock The situation in the Mideast is like a pot that is boiling. Iran continues stalling at the nuclear talks while building up it’s uranium and war materials. Meanwhile, Iran is also inciting it’s proxies to take aggressive actions towards Israel and friends of Israel in the region. Israel is threatening to take action against Iran and it’s proxies Hamas and Hezbollah.

Meanwhile, Israel is weakening itself with foolish lockdown and vaccine measures over the Covid19 virus. The smell of war is in the air! I have been looking again at the so-called Psalm 83 war. This war is described in Psalm 83 in which Israel’s close neighbors attack her.

The true nature of Islam rules the Muslim population with the thought that “land that was once ruled by Islam can never be surrendered” so, even so-called moderate Muslims cannot and will not oppose those radicals who claim jihad as the only answer. Thus, the Psalm 83 prophesy is the only answer left. Asaph, leader of Solomon’s priestly choir, was a prophet and he identified the people groups that would rise against Israel to destroy it in Psalm 83. ps 83 table of nationsAs you can see in the picture below, these people surround Israel and their lands abut Israel as shown in the pentagram area below. The table included identifies the people groups named with modern day identifications.

You will notice that the Palestinians are mixed with many other Arab groups. They consist of three main Arab groups: the Palestinians of the Gaza Strip, the Palestinians of the West Bank, and the Palestinian Refugees, which live mostly in various tent refugee camps.

Tps 83 confederateshese groups named all exist within the pentagram shown in this picture. They are all proxies of Iran, even ISIS which now operates in the Sinai and is aided by Iran. Israel is keeping them at bay by continuous air strikes and other actions but, this cannot go on forever. The boiling pot is building up pressure and sooner or later, like a volcano, it will erupt!

Is this war the war described by Ezekiel, the war of Gog and Magog? I don’t think so because Gog is not named in Psalm 83 and also, in Ezekiel 38, all come from outside the pentagram shown in the picture. However since all these tribes mentioned are proxies of Iran, it is possible that this war is a prelude to the Ezekiel war of Gog and Magog. They may reason that Israel is sufficiently weakened that they have an advantage, and attack.

Another scenario is that Israel attacks Iran to destroy their nuclear capability and Iran incites these peoples to attack Israel in response.  Whatever the way these things unfold, the Blood Moons we have been seeing in the heavens all are forecasting trouble for Israel.

Yet another aspect to these events is the financial pressures being exerted. Israel is spending a huge amount of it’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) on it’s military and also Iran and it’s proxies are gathering money from every source they can find. And one of the neighboring Arab countries named in the Psalm 83 war is Jordan. An article about Klaus Schwab reveals an interesting piece of information; Queen Rania of Jordan, has been ranked by Forbes as one of the 100 most powerful women in the world. And she is a member of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum whose members control trillions of dollars. These people want to control the world and they are driven by the spirit of Antichrist so, it is not hard to believe that they could also be involved in inciting these wars.

Al these wars will just be a prelude to the final war that Satan, the Dragon, will start one day soon. After a short time o f peace (probably about 7 years) during which the Antichrist will be revealed as a peacemaker between Jew and Arab and allow the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, he will set up the Abomination of Desolation in that Temple and then the real trouble for Israel (and the world) will begin! The Book of Revelation reveals this –

“And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” – Rev. 12:13-15

I will write more about this later.

As the Devil is at work formulating his plans, God is a step ahead of him. God is revitalizing His Church with an end-time harvest message. He is reminding us of who we are and where we are seated.

“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—as I also have received from My Father;” – Rev. 2:26, 27

 “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come . . . And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: ” – Eph. 1:19-2:6

The ‘latter rain’ is coming and those that are anointed are going into the fields that are white unto harvest. The Lord knows who are His and He is gathering them in to His Barn!

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Acts 2:21

“And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” – Rev.. 17:15

“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” – Isa. 59:19

Is the War of Gog about to Happen?

The chaotic election we have just been through reminded me of another topic that is seemingly unconnected – Ezekiel’s War of Gog and Magog. I want to repost part of an article I wrote in 2015 about the war of Gog against Israel.

Magog 1982 canceledRecent events in world politics have encouraged me to re-post previous articles on the Ezekiel 38/ 39 prophesy. Moves by radical Islamic forces in the Mid East are setting the stage for events described in the Psalm 83 wars which I believe will trigger the Gog/Magog war against Israel. Ezekiel begins his prophesy with the statement –

And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth …– Ezekiel 38:4

and this suggests Gog is involved in other activities when he is forced to move into the Mid East. Many Bible scholars have identified Gog with Russia, even before Russia ever became a political power. If this is true, and I believe it is, Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark with nuclear retaliation, Iran’s threatening to wipe Israel off the map, ISIS’ threats against Jordan and Saudi Arabia are all setting the scene for Israel making a preemptive strike on Lebanon, Syria, and/or Iran. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt may even support such an Israeli attack. This could very well force Russia to honor its commitments to Syria and Iran by attacking Israel. Also, with a weak, indecisive American administration in place for at least another 1-2 years, Russia may believe this is the best time for such an attack.

Biden_ObamaWe know that the radical Islamic nation of Iran has had as it’s goal the destruction of Israel and under the Obama Administration, Iran made great strides in it’s preparation for this war. But, President Trump greatly set them back by backing the U.S. out of Obama’s nuclear Iranian deal and by defeating ISIS. However, now that Biden has stolen the  Presidency, Iran is again rejoicing. They are attacking American troops in Iraq once again and threatening the soon destruction of Israel. And they are restarting their nuclear program. Meanwhile, Israel is watching the developments very closely and made the following statement by a Likud Minister  –

“In one of the most forceful statements made by an Israeli official, the Likud’s Tzachi Hanegbi, considered an ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, threatened that Israel could attack Iran’s nuclear program if the United States rejoined the nuclear deal, as US President-elect Joe Biden has indicated he plans to do.”

Erdogan calls for army to attack Israel on all sidesAnother major player in the Gog-Magog war is the nation of Turkey. Turkey was once a friend of the United States but under it’s new leader Erdogan, they have moved to open hostility towards the west and Israel and friendship with Russia. In a recent meeting of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation), the topic of forming an Army of Islam to defeat Israel was discussed.

At the conference, Tanriverdi (Erdogan’s chief military advisor) delivered a speech detailing the inner workings of the “Islamic Confederal State” that ASSAM aims to establish with 61 Muslim countries. In his address, Tanriverdi said that a “rapid deployment force” should be created. Judging by an article Tanriverdi penned in 2009, the purpose of this joint Islamic force is to defeat Israel, which “should be made to get engaged [in war] and the length of the war should be extended.”

The planning for an invasion of Israel by these Islamic nations is apparently far along. The fact that this conference of OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) nations was headed by Erdogan of Turkey does not mean Russia will not be leading the invasion. Russia has all the advanced weaponry and logistical support that will be needed and do not forget that Russia is very Islamic in its own makeup.

Now if Israel should be provoked to attack Syria or Iran’s nuclear plants, would this bring Russia down to their aid? And what would the United States do? It is no secret that Joe Biden is a puppet of Obama and has no love for Israel. I think it is very likely that he would sit back and watch the development instead of going to Israel’s aid. And it would end up with God going to Israel’s aid, just as Ezekiel writes.

“I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” – Ezek. 38:21-23

Perhaps there is a reason why God allowed Trump to lose our election, so His plan could come to pass. It does not mean Trump will not be given another four years – it may just be delayed?
