Damascus, Syria is the oldest inhabited city in world history. We are now seeing many Mideast events that could cause it to "cease to be a city", possibly igniting the Psalm 83 War.

Once it all begins, it will be like a chain of dominoes falling.

“See, Damascus will cease to be a city but will become a heap of ruins" Isaiah 17:1
Note the fact that Iran is not listed among the Psalm 83 allies, even though it is Israel's most vocal enemy.

The f
ollowing may explain Iran's conspicuous absence from the Psalm 83 War:

Shi'ite Muslim belief is that one day their Messiah, the Mahdi, will return during a very cataclysmic time in human history and will establish the rule of Islam around the world in the last days.

The leader of Iran, Ahmadinejad, and others among the Iranian leadership believe that they are divinely appointed to set up the great cataclysm; which will usher in the Mahdi, their Messiah.

Especially in recent days, it appears as though Iran is deliberately taunting Israel to strike its nuclear program.

Iran goading Israel to strike may be a two fold effort:

1)To bring about global cataclysm so their "Mahdi" will return.

2)To open the door for Syria, Hezbollah of Lebanon and the Palestinians (Hamas), the Saudis & Jordanians to counter attack Israel .

In this manner, the Psalm 83 allies could justify attacking Israel, saying they had provocation as Iran's defenders. Therefore, it would all be blamed on Israel.

Due to a strike by Israel, Iran may be "out of commission" for the remainder of the Psalm 83 War.

This would explain Iran's absence from the list of Psalm 83 War allies.

It is important to note that as a result of the coming Psalm 83 War, victorious Israel will no longer be bordered by her enemies.

Her enemies will be vanquished and she will be in possession of most of her Covenant land.

This week's headlines seem to be directing all the players of the Psalm 83 War to take their place on center stage:

Psalm 83 Coalition-

Tents of Edom = [decedents of Esau] Palestinian Refugees and Southern Jordanians

Ishmaelites = Saudi Arabians

Moab = Palestinian Refugees and Central Jordanians

Hagrites = Egyptians

Gebal = Northern Lebanese

Ammon = Palestinian Refugees and Northern Jordanians

Amalek = Arabs South of Israel

Philista = Palestinian Refugees and Hamas of Gaza Strip

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

Important to note: Israel has developed a strategy if she is attacked by weapons of mass destruction (WMD's). 

This protective move is named after Samson in the Bible.

Like Samson, who killed himself in order to destroy his enemies, Israel has the "Samson Option".

This is the military strategy wherein:

Israel would respond with massive retaliation according to the "alleged deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a "last resort" against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence, and possibly against other targets as well"

The Samson Option would probably have to be employed if Israel finds herself simultaneously attacked on multiple fronts.

Scripture appears to indicate that Israel herself will suffer mass casualties in this coming conflict.

However, Israel's surrounding enemies will either be decimated or subdued.

After the Psalm 83 war, the anti-Zionist countries of the world would be reeling with hatred towards Israel at the carnage.

They viciously hate Israel with a rage from the pits of Hell.

it would really inflame them if Israel not only destroyed her menacing neighbors, but also gained their land (including the vast oil resources of Saudi Arabia).

No longer is it acceptable to seize and own land after military defeats as in the days of the "empires".

The world would be livid about Israel's new "occupation" of the land of her defeated enemies.

This is where the "confirm a covenant with many" of Daniel 9:27 comes to play-

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Everyone has always thought that the "covenant with many" would be a peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians.

The Palestinians will never agree to anything less than ALL of Israel and it’s total destruction  There will never be any "peace plan" acceptable.

Many have tried through the years but all have failed at their "peace plans".

After the Psalm 83 war, a Mideast peace plan will be a moot point anyway, because most of the Palestinians will have perished in it.

The antichrist’s “covenant with many”, in the Book of Daniel, has to be an agreement already in place, as it is going to be "confirmed".

It appears that this covenant that is confirmed will not be of of men, but of God, as His covenant is ALL that is important-

God does not care about mere men's agreements!

The covenant in question would be God's Covenant with Abraham giving His land to Abraham and his descendants:

Genesis 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:19The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,20And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,21And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

After Israel defeats her many adversaries and victoriously wins  her Abrahamic Covenant land back; the nations of the world would vehemently protest the mass acquisition of her Covenant land.

It may be that after the Psalm 83 War, the antichrist will stand up, against the protests of all the nations, in favor of Israel's right to keep her God-given land.

He may even do so by actually acknowledging the fact that this land is actually God's Covenant land given to Israel.

Thus, he would "confirm the covenant" (God's Covenant) with many (the nations and Israel).

The antichrist figure thus would be instrumental in Israel being allowed to retain and redeem her Covenant land.

Therefore, it may be thought by the Children of Israel that he is their long awaited Messiah.

As per the preceding Temple Mount Faithful link:

"The complete redemption of Israel, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the coming of Messiah Ben David are the next stages in G-d's end-time plans with Israel and the entire world."

Since Israel would then be the recognized owner of the land, the 3rd Temple could also be rebuilt.

All the preparations to build the Third Temple are completely ready:

If the antichrist protects Israel's right to retain/redeem God's Covenant land and be able to rebuild their Temple, it would reason that he could easily be viewed to be  anointed by God.

According to the below, the revealing of the antichrist, by his role in confirming the above ”covenant with many", appears to be after the Rapture.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-8".. now you know what is restraining him from being revealed at this time; it is so that he may be manifested (revealed) in his own appointed time. For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, but it is restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one (the antichrist) will be revealed "

Therefore, it appears that the Rapture of the Church may coincide closely with the destruction of Damascus and/or the Psalm 83 War.

Many reputable Christians have validated their reasoning and are of the mindset that Obama may possibly be THE antichrist (or at least a forerunner).

Interestingly, Obama has direct ancestry to all the potential blood lines speculated for the Antichrist:


2.Muslim,traced to the Prophet Muhammed

3.Traced to the Caesar's Roman Empire 

Even though Obama presently politically leans anti-Israel and pro-Arab-Muslim, he could flip-flop (as is his method of operation).

After there is no Palestinian presence to give Israel's land away to, Obama could change his tune and instead advocate in favor of Israel.

If not Obama, someone else could come as a broker, to "confirm" this covenant, allowing Israel to redeem the rest of her Covenant land.

The Psalm 83 War would probably be of very short duration due to all of our high tech, modern weapons of mass destruction.

As noted above, the Rapture may be in close proximity to the coming Mideast War.

Therefore, there may not be a chance for believers to continue a "wait and see" attitude; in order to decide to give up the things of the world, and to focus on God.

Those who choose to do so would be the foolish virgins, not having enough oil in their lamps.

God knows the intent of the heart.

The discerner of men's hearts knows whether the affections for the world are only being released, because they are all about to be ripped away.

God knows if one is crying out to Him only because of fear of the coming Tribulation, as opposed to having a remorseful and repentant heart.

To be among the readied Bride, we have to love, obey and be so devoted to God that He is our focus, not the world.

To put the world over God is to be found in a state of adultery when Jesus, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, comes.

Those found in such a condition will not be among the true Bride...

There will be much "weeping and gnashing of teeth" by those who allowed themselves to be entrapped by the fleeting allures of this life.

The time to REPENT and PUT GOD FIRST is TODAY-before it is too late!!


  1. Glad to be able to share it Scott!

  2. Looks like HERE we go....thanks for writing this I was searching for info on Psalms 63 sharing. May the Lord continue to bless you & all of us with wisdom.

  3. So glad it blessed you! Thanks for sharing...the days are growing so short and we need to warn as often as possible!


  4. Well.... almost.

    The Psalm 83 war does not include Iran because Iran is part of the coalition of the Ezekiel 38 war of Gog and Magog. The Psalm 83 war precedes the war of Gog & Magog.

    I believe the war of Gog and Magog is the war that ushers in the Anti-Christ. Interestingly Israel will be burying the dead for 7 months and be using the armaments from this war as fuel for 7 years. interesting number isn't it?

    By the way, on what do you base your belief in a Rapture? Oh I know the many disjointed verses Christians use, but as a believer in Yeshua I have to look to the bible and not bible commentaries.

    Yeshua gathers his elect from the four corners of the earth when? At the last trump! When is that? When He returns! When is He going to return? When the Jewish people are saved, recognize Him as their Messiah and call out Baruch HaBa B'Shem adonai! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. (Good reason to start praying for the salvation of the Jewish people.)

    When are we called up to meet Him in the air? At his coming in a great cloud of witnesses. We will be changed in the twinkling of an eye when? At His coming.

    No one ever conceived, spoke of, or wrote about a rapture until John Darby heard of the prophetic utterance of a 15 year old Mary McDonald of Scotland who said she was shown that the second coming of Jesus is in two parts. Frankly you have to go through some pretty twisted justifications to try and pull it out of scripture.

    From the beginning of time God's true followers have been persecuted for His name, and Jesus (Yeshua) warns that this will be the case for ALL who would follow after Him!

    What makes anyone think in this evil age of apostasy we have a special escape that others didn't have? What glorifies God more... someone who is taken out of harms way? Or someone who walks through persecution and speaks the truth even unto death?

    I have dual citizenship with Israel and lived there for 10 years. I had believers from all over the world working for me and only the Americans and Brits believed there is a Rapture. It is a western contrivance. People who read the scriptures and aren't influenced by teachers of the rapture don't see any evidence of it in the scriptures and frankly neither do I.

    I hope I'm wrong. If I am not however I think the warning should be to prepare yourself to live through the most terrible time in history and walk through it in faith so that you can glorify God and lose your life for His sake and not try to save it so you lose it.

    I do agree with you on this... the days are growing short.

    God Bless
