Psalm 83 War
Psalms 83 War in Prophecy
As you can see from what the Apostle Paul warned us in I Thessalonians 5:3,4 we are going to witness sudden destruction at a time when we are hear the call for Peace and safety. During the call for Peace and safety Paul warns us (sudden destruction) will come. When you read Psalm 83 you will see where this destruction will come from. While the War spoken about in Ezekiel 38 takes place when Israel thinks they are living in safety without any walls to protect them, we believe the Psalms 83 war will take place at the time Israel and the Arabs are still calling for this Peace and safety and, at the time when Israel is protected by all their bars, gates, and walls.
Psalm 83 tells us the Ishmaelites, Edom, Ammon, Amalek, Hagarenes, Gebal, and the Philistines will attack Israel. Who are these nations described as Old Testament territories? In our modern times, these are the nations of Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Eqypt, the Palestinians, and Syria. Over the course of the last few years, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Syria have all come up with their own peace plans to deal with the Middle East peace talks between the PLO and Israel. None of these plans ever were installed because they all want the PLO to take over East Jerusalem and divide Israel into two states. Israel’s government has repeated over and over again East Jerusalem belongs to Israel and they will never give that holy city up. This of course is setting the stage for a major conflict between all the nations listed in the Psalm 83 war. At the present time many nations around the world are calling on Israel and the PLO to make some kind of peace plan work. As you can see from what Paul warned the timing of the sudden destruction is ripe. You may ask who will win this war? Take note that Israel will not be wiped out as planned by the attacking nations listed in Psalm 83. Fact is, after that war is over Israel will take away more land from the nations who tried to wipe her out which will no doubt set the stage for the Ezekiel 38 war. Note: none of the nations listed in the Ezekiel war are listed in the Psalm 83 war. Why? Because those nations from the Psalm 83 war were already defeated by Israel.
