In the backdrop of the disastrous, toxic climate here in the United States, the prophecies of the Bible continue to unfold in the Middle East. Let us not forget it is Israel that is pushed to the forefront of the world for the end time era. One of the most horrific scenes will be the battle of Magog and Israel.
But before that happens, the Bible says that Israel will be dwelling safely; a thought incomprehensible today.
And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, to take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Ez. 38:11-12
Recently there has been a string of peace treaties between Israel and other Arab countries like Bahrain and United Arab Emirates. I am sure more are to come, but the big one is quite possibly in the works and could be announced within a week. Regardless of the time frame, we know it will happen as Ezekiel tells us it will.
Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Ez. 38:13
As the Magog force advances on Israel, Sheba and Dedan will be an exception. Sheba and Dedan, the great-grandsons of Ham have historically been documented to reside in Saudi Arabia with that linage reaching into the other Arab countries previously mentioned.
There is an interesting article here that sheds light on a number of issues: Saudis Say Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Not Important to Islam. “In further departure from Palestinian narrative, Saudis recognize Jewish connection to the Temple Mount”
When have we ever seen this? Look carefully at the tail fins.
But to be truly at rest without walls and gates, Israel also needs to eliminate the threat to the North and immediate West of its borders. That would be Syria and specifically the oldest continuous city in history, Damascus. The current Iranian threat against Israel is coming primarily out of Damascus. We know the fate of Damascus.
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. Isa. 17:1-2
This would temporarily put an end to the Iranian threat and any threat that Jordan (The cities of Aroer) may pose.
This is what this blog is all about since the very first post July 8th, 2014, almost 7 years ago – watching the world events take place leading up to the departure of the Church and the subsequent Tribulation period.
Watching – waiting – “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13
