abdullahOil Price.com: During his visit to Washington last week the King of Jordan said that the events unfolding in the region today were nothing less than the start of World War III.

“We have to stand up and say, ‘This is the line that is drawn in the sand,’” the king said in an interview that was broadcast on CBS’s This Morning. “It’s clearly a fight between good and evil.”

Coming from one of the rare voices of reason in the Arab world this is certainly cause for concern.

“This is a Muslim problem,” said the king. The importance of this statement cannot be stressed enough. Until now, many in the Middle East saw the conflict as one opposing the United States and its Western allies to Islamist groups. The king’s statement in Washington sheds a whole new light on the problem and how to approach it.

Opinion: King Abdullah II heads one of two strategically important non-oil producing nations in the Middle East; the other is Israel. He does not know that his nation will be part of the first of three final wars leading to the return of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 83:6-7  lists 3 armies from Jordan:

  • Edom (Mt. Seir) – southern Jordan
  • Moab – central Jordan
  • Ammon – northern Jordan

1. Edom:  In the 6th century BC, Esau’s tribe was forced out of their ancestral home in Mt. Seir by a Nabatean tribe leaving the land desolate and fulfilling Ezekiel 35:1-4. Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you; I will stretch out My hand against you, And make you most desolate; I shall lay your cities waste, And you shall be desolate. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”

Esau’s descendants then settled into southern Judea (West Bank), where they still reside today.

2-3. Moab and Ammon join the attack.

Both brothers were born from an incestuous relationship between Lot and his daughters in the aftermath of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:30). The Bible refers to both the Ammonites and Moabites as Lot’s sons.

The three tribes make up most of the Palestinian people of today.

The ancient hatred has not changed.

Washington Free Beacon: “Leaders of the Palestinian terror group Hamas announced on Sunday that a national unity government formed earlier this year with the Fatah party had officially expired, leaving the status of the fragile political framework up in the air, according to regional reports.

The end of a tenuous six-month unity deal reached between Hamas and Fatah means that leaders from both Palestinian factions will have to meet in the coming weeks to decide whether or not to renew the governing coalition, which had united the ruling parties in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.”

Opinion: From a prophecy standpoint, the break-up of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas makes sense since they are represented separately in prophecy.

In Psalm 83, the Levite temple priest Asaph prophesied an alliance of nations that will attack Israel at some point in history. Asaph lived 3000 years ago but accurately named all of Israel’s Arab enemies today.

Asaph had never heard of Islam since it would not exist for 2500 years. But each one of the nations in the alliance are Muslim in one form (Shia/Sunni) or another.

The alliance that Asaph prophesied wanted to do precisely what the same nations want to do today – (caution, do not be surprised when telling this to friends or family that blank stares and a change of conversation will occur) – destroy Israel.

  • Edom:  Judea or West Bank (Palestinian authority – Esau)
  • Moab and Ammon: Central and Northern Jordan
  • Amalek: Arabs of southern Israel and the Sinai
  • Ishmaelites: Saudi Arabia
  • Hagrites: modern-day Egypt
  • Philistia: Gaza, (Palestinians of Hamas  – Amalek)
  • Gebal: northern Lebanon
  • Assyria: Syria including Kurdish (northern) Iraq
  • Inhabitants’ of Tyre: modern-day Lebanon (Hezbollah)

Because the Lord has sworn, The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” Exodus 17:16.

Arutz Sheva: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu apparently is very intent on forbidding Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount – the holiest site in Judaism – so much so that on Thursday he called Jordanian King Abdullah II and stressed to him again that the discriminatory “status quo” on the site will be kept.

Ahead of a meeting with Indian Home Affairs Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday evening, Netanyahu said “I spoke today to King Abdullah of Jordan and we agreed that we’ll do every effort to calm the situation.”

“I explained to him that we’re keeping the status quo on the Temple Mount and that this includes Jordan’s traditional role there, as consistent with the peace treaty between Israel and Jordan,” said Netanyahu.”

Opinion: “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Luke 21:24

Look at that face.
