It’s starting to look like Jordan is about to rise as a powerful end times player in the new Trump Era of Middle east relations.
“For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” Psalm 83:2-4 (KJV)
In the end times war mentioned in the Bible, we of course read about the Battle of Armageddon mentioned in Ezekiel 39 that takes place at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble, and the Battle of Gog and Magog that happens after the 1,000 Reign of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. But there is another war mentioned, connected to the time of Jacob’s trouble, that would appear to be separate from either of these two wars – the Psalm 83 War.
In our article entitled “The Real Meaning Of The Word Selah In The Bible“, we showed you that Selah was an actual place in the Bible that today is known simply as Petra in Jordan. Until the early 1800’s, that region was known by it’s full name of Selah Petra, which can be seen on old hand-drawn maps from that time. So everywhere in the Bible where you see the word ‘Selah’, it is invariably a reference to the coming time of Jacob’s trouble. In the King James Bible, Selah appears 75 times. In the NIV “bible” they have removed the word completely. Hmm, I wonder why?
An article on jpost.com just this morning talks about the role that Jordan might play in resolving the status of a Palestinian state:
The inauguration of an American administration uncommitted to the principle of an independent Palestinian state provides Israel with the opportunity to advocate a long-term strategic vision of building up a prosperous Jordan that could provide an alternative to the model of a two-state solution based on the Palestinian Authority. Such a vision will not only attenuate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but, equally importantly, it will bolster a Jordan whose importance to regional stability has never been so crucial. source
It’s starting to look like Jordan is about to rise as a powerful end times player in the new Trump Era of Middle east relations. Indeed, as we have shown you time and again, Donald Trump was elected by God for just this purpose – to bring out amazing change and upheaval in the Middle East leading to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
Let’s identify the players in the coming Psalm 83 War:
- Edom, Moab and Ammon: These three kingdom cities were located in Jordan, to the south of Israel. source
- Tyre and Gebal: Tyre was a major city in Lebanon, located to the north of Israel. source
- Assur: First capital city of Assyria, which was located to the east of Israel. source
- The Hagarenes: Descendants of the Hagar and connected to the people of Ishmael, located near the Persian Gulf. source
- The Philistines: Israel’s ancient enemy settled in Canaan, today they are known as the Palestinians and still trying to take over the land. source
It’s interesting to note that in 2017, Israel is surrounded by every one of these nations and peoples mentioned in Psalm 83, as we have just shown you, easily identifiable by the their ethnicity. Jordan in the Bible was a place where many important events occurred. John the Baptist baptized Jesus in the Jordan river, most likely on the east side. John would later be beheaded by Herod at the fortress located in Jordan. And Jordan will be the place, in Selah Petra, where the Jews will be miraculously protected and preserved from the Antichrist by God for a three and a half year period.
“Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion. For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of the nest,so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon. Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth. Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land. And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.” Isaiah 16:1-5 (KJV)
But what’s coming next is a major attack on Israel that looks for all the world like it will originate from Jordan.
It is our contention here at NTEB that the Psalm 83 War will be triggered when Donald Trump authorizes the moving of the U.S. Embassy from its current location in Tel Aviv to the Old City of Jerusalem. A senior Palestinian official said that the move would be a ‘declaration of war’:
A senior Palestinian official warned Sunday that a move by the Trump administration to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would be perceived as an act of aggression against the entire Muslim world. “In our opinion moving the embassy to Jerusalem is a declaration of war against Muslims,” Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub, who also presides over the Palestinian soccer association, told The Times of Israel in an interview. source
Jordan looms large in coming Bible prophecy, and as the Trump administration plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, things will get explosive very quickly. I would even go so far as to say that the confederacy mentioned in Psalm 83 is being formed at this very moment.
“Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save..” Isaiah 63:1 (KJV)
