JPost: “Throughout the  turmoil that has roiled the Middle East during the last five-and-a-half years, Jordan has managed to maintain its equilibrium, affected by events, to be sure, but seemingly immune from the twin catastrophes of state failure and rampant violent conflict that has characterized much of the region.

However, two recent jihadi terrorist attacks, the largest experienced by Jordan in a decade, give cause for concern, especially in the context of larger trends.

The most recent attack, carried out by the Islamic State on June 21, killed seven Jordanian soldiers and injured at least twice that many at a Syrian-Jordanian border checkpoint.”

jrdanOpinion: Jordan has a significant role to play in end times prophecy. In Psalm 83:1-8 the entire state is represented in great detail as part of an alliance to eliminate the Jewish state.

  • Edom: Southern Jordan, home  of the tribes of Esau until the 6th century BC
  • Moab: Central Jordan, firstborn son of Lot
  • Ammon: Northern Jordan, brother of Moab

Edom, or Esau (Genesis 36:1), is known as the eternal enemy of the Israelites. In Genesis 27:41 Esau vows to kill his brother Jacob whom God named Israel (Genesis 35:10) over the birthright that Esau squandered. Esau’s descendants are still trying to kill Jacob.

Modern day Edom is the West Bank (Judea) today.

Moab and Ammon were born to Lot and Lot’s elder and younger daughters in the aftermath of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Bible refers to both the Moabites and Ammonites as Lot’s sons, born of incest with his daughters, Genesis 19:37-38.

After the Psalm 83 alliance is defeated, Jordan is not mentioned again until the final war of Armageddon.

Daniel 11:40-41: “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.”

Daniel prophesies one of the final battles of Armageddon right before Antichrist moves his armies into Israel. Notice that Jordan will escape the wrath and destruction.

Here’s why: In Matthew 24:15-16, Jesus instructs the Jews who will be in Judea in that day to “flee to the mountains”. The mountains are modern-day Petra in southern Jordan.

All Jordan is spared because the remnant of the Jews will be there.

RENO, NV - FEBRUARY 22: The trusted branding is seen behind republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as he speaks at the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows in Reno, Nevada on February 22, 2016, the night before the Nevada GOP caucus. (Photo by David Calvert/Getty Images)

Breitbart: “Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a stirring address to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, but failed to endorse Donald Trump, telling Americans to “vote your conscience.”

Cruz congratulated Donald Trump on winning the party’s nomination, but stopped short of endorsing Trump outright, saying merely that he wanted to see the party’s principles prevailing in November.

He urged voters: “Please: don’t stay home in November.” But then he added: “If you love our country, and love your children as much as I know that you do, vote your conscience.”

Opinion: A most unusual election year to be sure. Two flawed candidates, a fractured Republican party and a deeply divided country.

As Bible prophecy students none of this should be a surprise. The apostle Paul warned us that in the last days perilous times would come (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

The apostle John laid out 4 symbolic horsemen that would kick off the apocalypse: a time of great distress and wrath unequaled in history:

  • The first horseman would be a counterfeit Christ on a white horse: Rev 6:1-2
  • The second would be a red horse taking peace from the earth: Rev 6:2-3
  • The third a black horse symbolizing economic collapse: Rev 6:3-4
  • The fourth is a pale horse symbolizing death and disease: Rev 6:5-6

But John was clear that before the first horseman would appear, those who have accepted the pardon that the blood of Christ provides would by no means be subjected to the wrath to come, Rev 3:10.

And Paul was careful to let the last generation before the return of Christ know that those who have accepted the pardon that the cross of Christ provides, would be taken up to meet Him in the air (2 Thess 4:16-18) before the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer 30:7) would begin.

So have no fear, and call somebody with the best news of all.

watchman

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me” Ezekiel 33:7

Has God assigned watchmen for today? Or were watchmen only appointed to speak to Israel on His behalf?

Russia Is Building a Nuclear Space Bomber

The Daily Beast: “The Russian military claims it’s making progress on a space plane similar to the U.S. Air Force’s secretive X-37B robotic mini-shuttle. That in itself isn’t terribly surprising or even, for the United States, particularly worrisome. Lots of governments and even private companies are working on space planes that can launch from rockets
