Modern Day Names In Psalm 83 Prophecy

This post is an addition to my previous posting titled,"May 15th Invasion Of Israel?" - also referred to as The Third Intifada. We could be very close to seeing fulfillment of the Psalm 83 prophecy, as well as other related prophecies.

As watchmen, we must be able to relate the names in current events to those names spoken of in Scripture. I thought it might be useful to review the nations/peoples involved in the Psalm 83 prophecy, and identify them using modern day names.

Psalm 83
1 O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.
4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

5 With one mind they plot together;
they form an alliance against you—
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
of Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Byblos, Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
8 Even Assyria has joined them
to reinforce Lot’s descendants.

9 Do to them as you did to Midian,
as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
10 who perished at Endor
and became like dung on the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 who said, “Let us take possession
of the pasturelands of God.”

13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
like chaff before the wind.
14 As fire consumes the forest
or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15 so pursue them with your tempest
and terrify them with your storm.
16 Cover their faces with shame, LORD,
so that they will seek your name.

17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
may they perish in disgrace.
18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD—
that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

Edom = Jordan
The Ishmmaelites = Jordan
Moab = Jordan
Ammon = Jordan
Hagrites = Syria
Gebal/Byblos = Lebanon
Tyre = Lebanon
Assyria = Northern Iraq/ Aram, but really all over the "Near East"
Philistia = Gaza
Descendants of Lot = Jordan
Amalekites = Israel's southern Desert

Now...imagine the Palestinians who are already there in Israel marching toward the borders of Israel to meet the others outside Israel. Also, much of Jordan's population is Palestinian.

Their planned event beginning May 15th will result in all of Israel being surrounded by her enemies. The total numbers involved could be millions attempting to overwhelm Israel. To me, it certainly has all the earmarks of prophecy being fulfilled. Don't you think so?

Hi Don,

Where would one look to find more information on this? I've only heard about this situation on your blog. Why isn't this an issue in the media? If this is actually being planned,and I don't doubt it, it seems to me, there would be some serious worldwide concern. I would like to hear more, please direct.

Thanks Darryl Trimble

Mid Stutsman said...

It sure does...and guess who has the spotlight instead...
This Yom Ha'atzmaut...Independence Day for Israel. Will be praying and fasting and believing!!

Don said...

cowiche, I will attempt to address the questions posed to me in your previous comment, but it won't happen today due to other time demands. Tomorrow...stay tuned!


Don said...

In answer to your question, Darryl, there are numerous websites and prophecy ministries that include maps, etc. containing the names of the historic Middle East nations. Also, try an on-line search to find history details of the region. Often times a good study Bible will have maps showing the Biblical names of nations around Israel.

As I've said before, the media and much of the public has a secular world view as to where this sin-sick world is headed, as opposed to a Biblical world view. The secular world view crowd has little interest in hearing about Israel, the Jewish people, and the end-times - much of it due to the heresy of Replacement Theology teaching that is popular in many churches today.

I have considered this prophecy and think it has had its application in 1948 and in the 1967 wat. We can trace the exact language used in a documentary about the Arab coalition in the 67 war. Psalm 83:3-8.

Shannah, Amir Tsarfati of behold Israel, agrees with you. He is a Jewish Christian, who has connections in the Israeli military.
