The below listed players of the Psalm 83 war are beginning to dominate the worlds' news.
Tents of Edom = [decedents of Esau] Palestinian Refugees and Southern Jordanians (including the terrorist group, Hamas, who rules over Gaza
Ishmaelites = Saudi Arabians
Moab = Palestinian Refugees and Central Jordanians
Hagrites = Egyptians NOTE: Since the Arab Spring's ousting of Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood is heading Egypt towards breaking the decades long peace treaty with Israel, leading towards enmity with Israel.
Gebal = Northern Lebanese
Ammon = Palestinian Refugees and Northern Jordanians
Amalek = Arabs South of Israel
Philista = Palestinian Refugees, including Hamas of Gaza
Inhabitants of Tyre = Hezbollah and Southern Lebanese
Assyria = Syrians and perhaps Northern Iraqis included
Children of Lot = Moab and Ammon=Palestinian Refugees and Central and Northern Jordanians
Most of the nationalities listed in the above Psalm 83 alliance are currently making headlines, spewing anti-Semitic war rhetoric. The others, that are currently not so vocal, will probably join into the fray once the conflict begins.
It is a known, yet unstated fact, that Iran is racing to complete it’s nuclear weaponry, so it can make good on its many threats to “annihilate” the nation of modern day Israel.
Please see the previous blog entry detailing why there are no hopes, whatsoever, of curtailing Iran’s efforts to achieve its stated goal “to wipe Israel off the map”.
It provides ample evidence how attacking Israel, is a a religious/spiritual obligation that Iran’s leaders cannot deviate from:
It is important to note that more than two years ago, Syria, Iran and Hezbollah forged a pact to be allies against Israel.
The terrorist group, Hamas ,which has governmental control of Gaza is also linked to Iran. Iran financially backs this enemy of Israel. Hamas began shelling Israel with rockets this past week.
It appears that Hamas, as Iran’s proxy is acting on Iran’s behalf . Their purpose may be twofold:
1) To distract Israel while Iran hurriedly puts the finishing touches on its nuclear warheads.
2) To aid in the assessment of Israel’s military capability as well as Israel's system of protecting her citizenry. These evaluations may be being performed in order to stratergize prior to waging war against Israel.
As of today, Iran is also calling it’s ally, Hezbollah, quartered in Lebanon, to start the assault on Israel:
“Iran threatens Israel with bombardment from Lebanon”
Also being reported today, is further provocation of Israel; wherein “Iran is wanting to Syria to “distract” Israel“ :
"Iran officials told Assad to focus on Israel to divert attention from Syria crisis"
As Iran's ally, Syria may even strike Israel with weapons of mass destruction. Israel may be forced into the "Samson Option" if this occurs.
Please see details of the “Samson Option” here:
Syria may also try to utilize weapons of mass destruction against Israel in order to divert the world’s attention off of Assad’s continued massacre of his Syrian citizens.
This call to "distract Israel" by Iran to its ally, Syria; would be a measure to buy Iran more time. Iran appears to be in the end stages of procuring a nuclear weapon, to use against Israel.
Both of these situations may lead to the fulfillment of the Psalm 83 War, as well as the leveling of Damascus as prophesied in Isaiah 17:
Isaiah 17:1 “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.
Below are likely scenarios that could easily kick start this last days war:
A) Israel is forced into a preemptive strike against Iran; due to their nuclear weapon ambitions and threats to annihilate Israel.
B) Israel is forced to retaliate against Syria.
To reiterate, Assad may try to divert attention from Syria's civil war by making Israel the new battleground in conjunction with it being an offensive attack to "distract" Israel, so Iran can complete the preparation of its nukes.
From all the multiple, intimidating threats it appears that Iran and her allies may be intentionally trying to goad Israel into a preemptive strike against Iran; so that Syria and the other Psalm 83 allies can join in and attack Israel.
As such, the world would blame only Israel. The world at large, hates Israel and always blames her, even though she has always only operated on the defensive.
From Psalm 83:1-8 it is evident that all of aforementioned enemies of Israel have devised a plot against her, in order to "cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
1 Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! 2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. 4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” 5 For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: 6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; 7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot. Selah
As such, Iran and her allies appear to be deliberately taunting Israel in an effort:
1) to bring about the cataclysmic return of their Shiite Islamic Messiah, the Mahdi
2) to bring to fulfillment, their long awaiting goal of the extinction of Israel.
Therefore, these enemies of Israel are literally “looking for a fight”.
Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah) and the Palestinians (Hamas) want to be able to justify to the world, their rationales for attacking Israel.
Israel may soon be forced into striking Iran in order to preserve her very existence. Iran’s allies will use their alliance, with the excuse of being Iran's protectorate; in order to launch a multifront attack against the tiny nation of Israel.
Satan has used many wicked men, throughout the ages, to try to exterminate God's chosen people.
God's Word tells us that this time will be no different. No matter how hard they try, no one will never be able to destroy Israel, the apple of God's eye.
In fact, the children of Israel will emerge from the Psalm 83 War as the victors.
The destruction of Israel, that her enemies so desire, will be heaped instead upon them, just as God forewarned at the beginning of time, in the Book of Genesis:
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."
As we see this advent of the Psalm 83 War, may we also see that we are at the end of the age.
With that realization, may we all finally conclude that all that really matters is our relationship with the Most High God through His Son, Yeshua, Jesus the Christ.
