The Middle East Today in Bible Prophecy

Tactical Nuclear Gulf War ?

Judgment on Edom ...

"For I have sworn by Myself," says the LORD, "that Bozrah [an ancient city state in Edom] shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse. And all its cities shall be perpetual wastes."
Jeremiah 49:13 NKJV

"I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; says the Lord GOD."
Ezekiel 25:14 NKJV

The ancient city of Bozrah is still there, in modern day Jordan — a tourist attraction. People still go there. It is not "a desolation", yet!

The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, brought the middle east wars to American soil.

On July 7, 2005 terrorist attacks on the London public transportation system, brought the middle east wars to British soil.

On October 22, 2014, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau a Canadian-born muslim terrorist shot and killed a Canadian soldier standing guard at the Ottawa National War Memorial. The world as we know it has changed. With all the interest in the Book of Revelation and apocalyptic scenarios, what does the Bible really say about the territory of Iraq and Middle East terrorism? Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were not the only ones fostering an atmosphere of world terror.

The Islamic State has taken over the role of Amalek in the middle easty today. Amalek's descendants were the first recorded terrorists, and they were a major middle east player in ancient times.

We more recently have witnessed the horrific November 2015 Paris attacks, on television news — around the world.   What next?

"Then the LORD said to Moses, 'Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.' And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-LORD-Is-My-Banner; for he said, 'Because the LORD has sworn: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.' "
(Exodus 17: 14-16)

Amalek was a grandson of Esau. Esau's children were the founders of the peoples of Edom. The confederacy of Edom has a MAJOR part to play in Middle East bible prophecy in the end time, and the tribe of Judah has always been the target of the peoples of Edom. Why? Because they identify Jews with the people of Israel, whom Edomites and Amalekites had a hatred for, as the Israelites came out of Egypt, anciently.

The lost ten tribes of Israel have a greater role to play in history than Edom, as it is modern-day Israelites, not Jews, who will go to war with the Edomites, and defeat them. Modern Israelites, the lost ten tribes, have the job of protecting the interests of the Jews in Palestine. The Jews watch over Jerusalem. The lost ten tribes of Israel watch over and protect the Israelis. The Israelis are a people made up of displaced Jews who have come from around the world, back to their ancestral homeland. Palestine is interestingly the ancestral homeland of the lost ten tribes of Israel, as well.

The phrase "by the hand of My people Israel" is one you should become familiar with. Your bible predicts that the descendants of Joseph (America and the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples), including the decendants of Reuben (France), will join together militarily, to destroy state assisted Middle East terrorism. That is a bible fact.

War between nations and groups of nations is of a general nature, so the prophecy of Matthew 24 is another matter:

"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom ..."
(Matthew 24: 6-7)

But, Amalek's descendants are specifically named in the bible to be active terrorists, in the end time, so ... get ready for the BIG BANG of Bible prophecy in the Middle East !

Historic Perspective Versus Bible Scholars

Bible scholars unanimously and INCORRECTLY proclaim that the Ten Tribes of Israel, the nation of Edom, and the Amalekites disappeared from history into obscurity.

The explanation for this, is usually intermarriage and blending in with other nations and cultures. Why is it so important to be able to identify these three national entities? Because, if you don't know who the players are, you cannot follow the history, nor can you understand current prophetic events, in the light of bible prophecy.

What people do not get, is that the bible refers to the "Israelis" as the House of Judah. The bible refers to America and Britain as the House of Joseph - the leading nations of the larger entity, the House of Israel, in the end time. In end time bible prophecy, Judah is the smaller nation, but a significant player on the world scene.

The House of Israel (comprising of many more nations) is the larger, militarily dominant power, being the leading nations of the Twentieth and Twenty-first centuries - the end time. America is the only nation to use nuclear weapons in a world war setting, and is the leading "mega" power of the lost ten tribes of Israel.

It is necessary to know several of the ancient nations, by their ancient and modern names, as they are key players, and this enables the modern student of history, how they relate to the middle east today, in bible prophecy. They are:   Edomites, Amalekites, Assyrians, and the lost 10 tribes of Israel.

The Amalekites ... Terrorists Then, International Terrorists Now !

"Amalekites were descendants of Esau; a wandering tribe, ... roaming in wide circles even into Judah, and far to the east. ... Moses authorized their extinction (Exodus 17:8-16). They have disappeared from history."
(Halley's Bible Handbook, by Henry H. Halley, Twenty-Fourth Edition, page 171)

Fate of Amalek: quoting from the ...

"I Chron. iv. 42-43 states that in the time of Hezekiah five hundred Simeonites annihilated the last remnant 'of the Amalekites that had escaped' ... "
So history says. But, this scripture is dealing with the Amalekites in their area. We find an Amalekite alive and well in the court of the Babylonian king, at the time the Jews were captive there. His name was Haman.

"Haman, son of Hammedatha, was the chief minister serving King Ahasuerus (Esther 3:1-2), and as his name indicates, Haman was a descendant of Agag, the king of the Amalekites."
"On account of his attempt to exterminate the Jews in the kingdom of Ahasuerus, he is frequently called "the persecutor of the Jews". In Rabinnical literature, "Haman is identified by the Talmudists with Memucan, the last of the seven princes 'which saw the king's face' (Esther 1:14), giving to Memucan the signification of 'prepared for punishment.' Haman was a direct descendant of [King] Agag in the sixteenth generation and consequently an Amalekite."

We also find Haman mentioned in the bible in Ester 3:10, as "the enemy of the Jews." So Amalekites were NOT killed off by Israelites when they moved into Palestine. Look for them in positions of political inflence. They like the ear of the king or spirital leader, rather than doing the dastardly deeds themselves. The perfect psychopath, hiding behind someone in power.

An Aside ... Did God Damn Saddam ?

Saddam Hussein was in the process of rebuilding Babylon. This man was under the misguided delusion that he could bring back the past glory of the Babylonian empire. Archaeological excavations and restorations have taken place over the past while. History is being relived, Saddam's picture was in place of kings and emperors of Babylon's great and golden age.

The Bible foretold the destruction of Babylon's Empire and the fate of this great city: 'And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans' pride, will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It will never be inhabited, Nor will it be settled from generation to generation;' (Isaiah 13:19-20) Yet, this Saddam thought he could resurrect a part of history and rebuild a city which God Himself has proclaimed shall never be.

So, did God damn Saddam? No! - America did. The explanation - America won the war. Saddam is dead. God watched America take care of the problem. After all, it is the Lord God of Israel who gave America the military might above all their ememies.

There is something interesting about the history of this part of the Middle East. The alliances of the past and the family feuds of yesteryear are the basis of what we call the Middle East TODAY in Bible Prophecy.

Ancient Confederacy through Marriage

Jacob (renamed Israel) started a lineage of princes over the twelve tribes of Israel. His brother, Esau (renamed Edom), not only despised his inheritance, but also destroyed his genetic inheritance by marrying into the surrounding Gentile nations. Edom created Gentile princes of his own against God's national design and built a confederacy of princes against his brother Israel.

'Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite; Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite; and Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.'
Genesis 36:2-3

The confederacy is alive and well today

This very 'old hatred' [perpetual or unrepented of hatred] is the source of the trouble in the Middle East war soon to erupt again. Edomites are alive today. The descendants of Amalek are the instigators of Middle East terrorism. This is an old family dispute over an inheritance and blessing from God.

For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; ASSYRIA also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot. Selah
Psalm 83:5

[NOTE: German companies were Saddam's biggest supplier of modern weapons and dual use technology. Germany is modern ASSYRIA in bible prophecy.]

A Command From God: Ethnic Cleansing

'Then the LORD said to Moses, ''Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.'' And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-LORD-Is-My-Banner; for he said, ''because the LORD has sworn: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation ."'
(Exodus 17:14-15)

The Amalekites (descendants of Esau) used the same tactics as the terrorists of today. They attacked from the rear of the military columns, where the women, children, and the elderly were.

'Thus says the Lord GOD: ''Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them," 'therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword.'   "I will lay My vengeance on Edom, by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance," says the Lord GOD.
(Ezekiel 25:12-14 NKJV)

Can things be worded any clearer? God has commanded the descendants of Israel - the British Commonwealth and the United States of America and the Israelis to obliterate the likes of Saddam Hussein, Arab terrorists, and terrorist supporting nations, from the face of the earth. The problem was the ancient Israelites would not obey this command, as it was too horrific for them to contemplate. The character of the descendants of Israelites has not changed. We being those people, will not carry out such an order, even from God Himself. Let's come back to this thought, a little later on in the article.

The city states of Bozrah and Damascus - future wastelands - like Sodom

Just read the prophesies as written. Emphasis added. They are astonishing !!

'Woe to you who plunder , though you have not been plundered; And you who deal treacherously , though they have not dealt treacherously with you! When you cease plundering, You will be plundered; When you make an end of dealing treacherously, they will deal treacherously with you .'
(Isaiah 33:1)

'But I have made Esau bare; I have uncovered his secret places , And he shall not be able to hide himself . His descendants are plundered, His brethren and his neighbors, And he is no more.'
(Jeremiah 49:10)

[Although Iran is considered to be a modern Persia, it is disconcerning that, like Saddam Hussein, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thought he too can continue to hide Iran's weapons programs from God?]

' Against Edom . Thus says the LORD of hosts: "Is wisdom no more in Teman? Has counsel perished from the prudent? Has their wisdom vanished? Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Dedan! For I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him, The time that I will punish him.'
(Jeremiah 49:7-8)

"For I have sworn by Myself," says the LORD, "that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse. And all its cities shall be perpetual wastes." I have heard a message from the LORD, And an ambassador has been sent to the nations Gather together, come against her, And rise up to battle! For indeed, I will make you small among nations, Despised among men. Your fierceness [brutality - BEHEADINGS ?] has deceived you, The pride of your heart, O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Who hold the height of the hill! Though you make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there," says the LORD.
"Edom also shall be an astonishment; Everyone who goes by it will be astonished And will hiss at all its plagues. As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighbors ," says the LORD, No one shall remain there, Nor shall a son of man dwell in it." [tactical nukes used?]
"Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan Against the dwelling place of the strong; But I will suddenly make him run away from her. And who is a chosen man that I may appoint over her? For who is like Me? Who will arraign Me? And who is that shepherd Who will withstand Me?" Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD that He has taken against Edom, And His purposes that He has proposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out; Surely He shall make their dwelling places desolate with them."
"The earth shakes at the noise of their fall; At the cry its noise is heard at the Red Sea. Behold, He shall come up and fly like the eagle, And spread His wings over Bozrah; The heart of the mighty men of Edom in that day shall be like the heart of a woman in birth pangs.
(Jeremiah 49:13-22)

The burden against Damascus. "Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap."
(Isaiah 17:1)

"I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, And it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad."
(Jeremiah 49:27)

Burning Iraqi Oil Wells

... For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah , And a great slaughter in the land of Edom. ... For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, The year of recompense for the cause of Zion. Its streams shall be turned into pitch , And its dust into brimstone; Its land shall become burning pitch [burning oil wells]. It shall not be quenched night or day; Its' smoke shall ascend forever. From generation to generation it shall lie waste; No one shall pass through it forever and ever.
(Isaiah 34:6-10 NKJV)

Ambassadors of Peace Shall Weep !

'Surely their valiant ones shall cry outside, The ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly . The highways lie waste, The traveling man ceases. He has broken the covenant , He has despised the cities, He regards no man. The earth mourns and languishes, Lebanon is shamed and shriveled; Sharon is like a wilderness, And Bashan [grassy plains east of Israel, today parts of Jordan and Iraq] and Carmel shake off their fruits.'
(Isaiah 33:7-9)

The Time of this Prophecy

This is an End Time prophecy. It has not been fulfilled. When you look at what Obadiah has to say it is clear: verse 15 'For the day of the Lord upon all the nations is near '. This is for our time. That expression 'the day of the Lord' can only be referring to an end-time setting. You are shortly going to see a dramatic set of events which will rock the nations. When God says it will astonish us, He means just that!

Consider the boasting and impudence of Saddam Hussein. More recently Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was boasting against the Israelis, Europe, and the United States. So read the following scriptures:

'The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom (We have heard a report from the LORD, And a messenger has been sent among the nations, saying, "Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle"): "Behold, I will make you small among the nations; You shall be greatly despised . The pride of your heart has deceived you , You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Whose habitation is high; You who say in your heart, ' Who will bring me down to the ground?'
(Obadiah 1:1-3)

Don't these words capture the situation. Before it was Saddam's military burying and hidding war materials, and dispersing other Iraqi weapons to Syria and Iran? Now it is Iran doing the same thing, hiding their preparations for war.

"Oh, how Esau shall be searched out! How his hidden treasures shall be sought after! All the men in your confederacy shall force you to the border ; the men at peace with you shall deceive you and prevail against you. Those who eat your bread shall lay a trap for you. No one is aware of it."
(Obadiah 1:6-7)

Notice now Iran is being forced into a position politically. Allies deceive and set up a war footing. A trap. Iran is being searched out and Iran's treasured possessions are being discovered. We see it in the news, daily. But Iran is not alone. In the Middle East, there still is the modern confederacy of Edom to be dealt with.

Gulf War Three ?

Be prepared for other nations to be drawn into this conflict. The Arabs will do as before. They will attempt to draw the Israelis into battle. The Americans presently do not have a substantial military presence in Iraq. But, America can be placed in a position where the only defense of Israel, is using tactical nuclear weapons, delivered by air, from a navy carrier. If the situation is critial, with the Isralis being attacked on several sides, by formidable armoured division, the Yanks have to act fast. Even the French, a few years ago, said their submarines were off the coast of Palestine in the Mediterranean Sea, and ready to act to protect their (oil?) interests in the Middle East.

"Battle of the Red Sea" - a Possibility ...

The American naval battle groups, and the precious aircraft carriers are vulnerable to attacking Iranian naval forces (150 assorted vessels). American naval forces can overwhelm any Arab naval attack. Iraq could lose its entire navy, at the same time costing American lives in Iraq, in the land battle. Waiting for navy air support will be costly to land forces, as the navy fighter jets defend the carriers and battle groups.

Palestinian uprisings in Gaza and the West Bank , would keep badly needed Israeli forces from turning north to face the formidable Syrian armoured units. Israelis would be completely on the defensive.

Israel under a nuclear, or chemical and biological threat of annihilation, will be forced to respond with extreme force. That means nuclear weapons.

If Saudi Arabia joins in against Israel, the mercenaries, and the few remaining American forces in Iraq, are trapped between the Saudi force, to the south-west and Iranian forces to the east. The Iranian and Saudi air forces have sufficient air power to press American and allied forces into diversionary and delaying actions, by attacking American land and naval targets. The Israelis will be hard pressed in a life and death battle for their national survival, in an attack from both Syria and Iran. Seeing what they see as a quick end to Israelis in Palestine, Turkey could join Syria in an attack from the north, the battle would be fierce. But wait!! The God of our fathers has made it CLEAR that the modern day Israelites (not just Jews) will destroy the men of Edom, FOREVER. They are to be wiped out of existence. Do you get the point? God has determined because of the EVIL of the Edomites, that they are to be victim of God's ETHNIC CLEANSING at the hands of the American and British forces.

"Battle of Bozrah"

Now take a look at the American NUCLEAR armed submarines in the Mediterranean. The Israelis have atomic bombs, to be used if they are pressed by their enemies. The British and American air forces are nuclear armed.

Jordan is the unexpected battle field: the ancient plains of Bashan (western Iraq and Jordan and a portion of SYRIA.) The combined Arab forces will be drawn into the Jordanian and Syrian plains. Here they will be destroyed. The lands of Edom are to be uninhabitable!! The Bible prophesies are to be fulfilled, whether we like it or not. God has spoken it through the pen of His prophets. Remember we are not to despise prophesies. They will take place because God Himself will force the events to happen for His purpose. The world will be aghast at the calamity foretold by the Bible to happen to the peoples of Edom. Not a man will survive!! Cities will lay waste. Highways will be empty. The people will not be there. Areas of Jordan and Iraq will be uninhabited. How grave this is. How sobering.

Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. (Revelation 16:12 NKJV)

In some way this battle will close the way of the Euphrates, which has been a travel route for armies back to the time of the Babylonian conquests of the Middle East. Otherwise, there would be no need to open it up again in order to fulfull the end-time prophecy of the sixth angel of Revelation 16.

Torah ! Torah ! Torah ! Climb Mount Nebo !

... and the prayer of the Jews.

The news did not make that big a deal about the 144 Jewish Rabbis flying around Israel, seven times, in prayer (some years ago).

Do you see the parallel to another historical event - one where an enemy was wiped out to the man, woman, and child? JERICHO? - which comes from the root word meaning: a lunation ; month; moon.

The story of Jericho is one we do not really want to believe. It was a case of God [not man] practicing ethnic cleansing.

The Israelis see the gravity of the situation. They know they are in peril. The Israelis have called upon the God of their fathers to help them out in a time of extreme danger. I don't know about you, but this wakes me up! This is REAL!

In Defense of Jerusalem ...

What more can you say about nuclear war in the Middle East, when you read it in the news, 2500 years ago ... it is called bible prophecy:

And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.
Zechariah 14:12 NKJV

This prophecy being used is, time-wise, out of context. This actually refers to an event a little later on in history. The context is never-the-less, nuclear. But it is obvious - God knows how to make a clean nuclear bomb. He made the atom. He knows how to split it.

Consider that Canada started its nationhood at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham.

Even though the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, Americans linked themselves to history when the armies of the North and the South clashed at Manassas (Manasseh's ?) Junction.


And, Iran wants "the bomb" and wants to take on the Israelis and America?

Japan wanted to unite one billion Asians and rule the world. Their answer came when America took out Hiroshima and Nagasaki. America was given an enourmous tool to stop Japan from thwarting bible prophecy via Asian world rule, under their emporer, the Sun God, whom they worshipped during the Second World War. It was a warning to all nations, that no one will be allowed to dominate and rule the whole world - except the living God Himself and His saints, at His coming.

It is interesting that America dawns fifty stars on its flag. The Jublilee year is a memorial, a sort of place marker, and God's Jublilee number is fifty. It is a sign of the chosen people under the God of the Hebrews — a sign of prophetic things to come. What nation has fifty stars on it's flag?

"By The Hand of My People Israel" — including the half-tribe of Joseph — The United States of America

The number of America is "50" ...

An Aside — the biblical symbolism of seven, twelve, and fifty stars

In Revelation 1:20, the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches. The seven stars ... represent the seven angels of the churches, and the seven eras of the Church throughout Christian history.

"Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars."
(Revelation 12:1)

"She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne."
(Revelation 12:5)

The twelve stars ... represent the twelve tribes of Israel — the woman, who bore the male child who would be Messiah.

Now in modern history, the thirteen stripes ... represent the fact that America is the half-tribe, Manasseh, along with Ephraim, which is Britain — both nations form the modern-day Israelite tribe of Joseph.

The fifty stars? ... no man could have planned for the symbolism of fifty stars for the country of America. This has to be the hand of God.

The founding fathers of the American thirteen colonies, were masons. They were quite familiar with biblical symobolism, and it can be stated they had a good knowledge of ancient Israel's history when they formed thirteen colonies, as they also thought their work, to be in tune with the will of God. These men would have been aware of the Sabbatarians and the British-Israel historic perspective — the knowledge of the link to being Israelites on the move to a promised land. What is more interesting, is that God first separated church and state, not Americans. Again — America's founding fathers got the hint — the number 13 was their historic starting point. God worked behind the scenes to build America up to 50 states — His jubilee number.

The biblical "day of the Lord" encompasses a lot of things, but it is the time when the "accepable year" or the Jubilee Year is proclaimed, and restores the fifty year cycle, which will begin the Millennial rule of the Messiah. We really do not know when the Jubilee year is to be observed. The knowledge of that year was lost by the Jews entering the Babylonian captivity many years ago. The Jubilee Year will be restored to humanity — a year of celebration and true jubilation to those who serve the God of the Hebrews. Those who keep the Day of Atonement, will understand this more clearly, as it is on this day the Jubilee is proclaimed, every fifty years:

"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn ..."
(Isaiah 61:1-2)

Man's memorials are for remembering our failures — mainly war. God thinks in terms of salvation. His memorials map out his plan of salvation. The thirteen stripes, and the fifty stars are no accident. It was by the inspiration of the Almighty, the American flag evolved into what it is today.

During WWI, it was Britain who took the lead. During WWII, America became the world's dominant power. America is the "hammer of God" so to speak, in the end-time, before the Tribulation and the Day of the Lord come into the prophetic picture. America leads the Israelite nations in the end-time. Hense, the fifty stars on the flag. America has military bases around the globe. The Greeks and the Romans could not accoplish such an achievement. The British empire set the stage for modern Israelites to take charge of the world scene. America took over from the Brits.

The fifty stars on the American flag — a physical "type" of the "Jubilee" of God's intervention and power over human affairs. God has blessed America, to do "His work" in the end-time.

American Nuclear Strike !

There is soon to be a monumental event in the Middle East - nuclear war. The only way to neutralize certain chemical and biological weapons is to incinerate them at a very high heat.

"The house of Jacob shall be a fire , And the house of Joseph (America and the British Commonwealth) a flame ; But the house of Esau shall be stubble; They shall kindle them and devour them, And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau," For the LORD has spoken.
(Obadiah 1:18 NKJV)

Tactical nuclear war is the only practical solution to the Middle East dilemma of Arab nations getting their hands on nuclear weapons. It will establish a new and sobering view of world geopolitics: the period of regional tactical nuclear war. The European Union will be enchanted by the new reality, that nuclear war can be carried out on a limited scale, without bringing the world to total annihilation. America beware!

The ambassadors of peace will weep bitterly at the horrific loss of human life. There is no real ' peace in our time '. America will be greatly feared. The Israelis will be able to build the end-time temple for the coming of the Messiah, in our time.

Edomites did not just fade from Middle East history. They are still there and against Israel. God's Word is true. Edom and their evil works will be cleansed from the face of the earth. Jacob-Israel (America and Britain) triumphs over his wicked brother Esau.

'Thus says the Lord GOD:'

"Because of what Edom did against the House of Judah by taking vengeance,
and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them,"

'therefore thus says the Lord GOD:'

"I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it,
and make it desolate from Teman;
Dedan shall fall by the sword.
I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel,
that they may do in Edom according to My anger
and according to My fury;
and they shall know My vengeance"

(Ezekiel 25:12-14 NKJV)

The End-time Prophesy of Balaam Against Amalek

... the least understood prophecy in Christendom !   Balaam's prophecy against end-time terrorism, in the Middle East — the destruction of the Amalekites — forever.

So he took up his oracle and said: "The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, and the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened;   The utterance of him who hears the words of God, And has the knowledge of the Most High, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open:   "I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; A Star shall come out of Jacob; A Scepter shall rise out of Israel, And batter the brow of Moab, And destroy all the sons of tumult.   "And Edom shall be a possession; Seir also, his enemies, shall be a possession, While [end-time] Israel does valiantly.   Out of Jacob One [America] shall have dominion, And destroy the remains of the city."

Then he looked on Amalek, and he took up his oracle and said: "Amalek was first among the nations, But shall be last until he perishes."   Then he looked on the Kenites, and he took up his oracle and said: "Firm is your dwelling place, And your nest is set in the rock;   Nevertheless Kain shall be burned. How long until Asshur carries you away captive?"   Then he took up his oracle and said: "Alas! Who shall live when God does this?   But ships shall come from the coasts of Cyprus [the "west" — that is the western democracies — namely the American navy], And they shall afflict Asshur [WWII Germany] and afflict Eber [WWII Eastern Europe], And so shall [they do to] Amalek [with Gulf War III], until he perishes [forever]."

(Numbers 24:15-24 — comments added for clarification and prophetic perspective)

That will be the end of Amalek. It will also be the end of international terrorism originating out of the Middle East. What is next, is a continuation of wars and romours of wars, until the rest of end-time bible prophecy and The Day of the Lord, is fulfilled.
