2013: Is This the Year for Isaiah 17/Psalm 83 Fulfillment?

16 March 2013: In "The Bedouin Rebellion Against Israel" on FrontPageMag yesterday author Eric Burns has written a very informative article that serves as both a reminder and background brief for the coming greater Middle East war and the Bedouin role in it.

I'd only read the first couple of paragraph's of this article when I recalled writing in a December 2011 forecast for the year 2012 how the Sinai Bedouin would likely fulfill the modern-day role of Amalekites in the Psalm 83 prophecy. In "The State of the Middle East 2012" I wrote:
"In Egypt, as in other Islamic Arab nations formerly ruled by dictators, the military remnant of the Mubarak regime still tenuously holds power in the face of renewed uprisings by the Muslim fundamentalist masses led by the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen (Muslim Brotherhood) and the Salafists in their respective strongholds around the country and in Cairo. In the Egyptian Sinai the overt rise in the past few weeks of the Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group "Ansar al-Jihad in the Sinai Peninsula" since the fall of Mubarak was inevitable and led to the attacks in Eilat, Israel as well as the repeated attacks on the Egypt-Israel gas pipeline. This newly emergent terrorist organization could not exist without the tacit support and/or involvement of HAMAS, Egypt, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Islamic Republic of Sudan (Ezekiel's Kuwsh, as noted here). These Islamic terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula will likely fulfill the role of Amalek per Psalm 83 verse 7."

In the next paragraph of that blog item I brought up the "basket case that is Bashar al-Assad's Syria," saying in full:
"Then there's the basket case of Bashar al-Assad's Syria, ruled by a minority Shi'a faction of Alawites it remains in the throes of a Sunni Islamonazi insurrection very much like that which just toppled the dictatorial regime of Muamar Ghadaffi in Libya. This internal Syrian affair has drawn in both Turkey and Iran on opposite sides of the conflict, and placed Israeli-Turkish relations in the odd position of being simultaneously belligerent and non-belligerent with respect to each others national interests. Clearly Ezekiel 38/39 is not an imminent or next-in-line prophetic fulfillment as Isaiah 17, Psalm 83 and Joshua 13:1-7 all appear to be."

And so, here we are in the closing days of the first quarter of 2013, and it's as if all these things are being held in place by some kind of limbo, orchestrated for a precision release in the violent outburst that I believe will be the imminent fulfillment and last battle of the prophetic Psalm 83 war (November 1947 to the Present) and that I also believe will be catalyzed into that state by events to the north and the fulfillment of the Isaiah 17 prophecy.

And it all could blow up one of these evenings without any further warning. On that day we here in the USA will awake to the news that war between Syria and Israel erupted; that Damascus has been nuked and that war rages throughout Lebanon, Syria and northern Israel.  The thing is... thanks to the Lord's prophetic word we know how it ends before it really begins, and this is what I need to be talking about and focused on instead of other distractions.

Good points Sean. I agree that we are going to wake up one morning to find the region in flames. It is not going to be pretty.

Thankfully we have Bible prophecy to help us know what is around the corner and how it turns out.

God bless.

Amen Chris, that's it exactly, we know what's coming.

For myself, and possibly for others who have written similar exegesis on the sequence of the various pre-70th Week wars that must take place to create the conditions for the 70th Week to occur... I have no doubt whatsoever that the "sign" of a massive radioactive cloud over Damascus and that then drifts to the southeast over the 'cities of Aroer' causing their populations to abandon the entire region and flee for their lives, will serve as a definitive sign on the 'last days' linear time-line of events.

The Harpazo could occur at any instant, so this eventual fulfillment of prophecy has no direct relation to the Harpazo, but it MUST serve as a catalyst for all of the Bride of Christ to take to the street and every other place there is to powerfully preach The Word as if it was our last day on this earth, simply because it might well be.

Who wants to be caught up in the Harpazo with Christ without having done his or her utmost to preach salvation in Christ alone?

Who wants to have to answer His inevitable questioning of why His directives were not carried out to the fullest extent possible?

There is work to be completed right here, right now. Is there anyone who doubts this?

Understand this completely - the world is relatively silent right now when compared to the noise that will exist and the overwhelming terror which will seize people around the world and cause many to fall over dead in full-blown cardiac arrest due to abject fear of what is occurring.

The Bride of Christ should be using this relative quiet to loudly secure and collect additional brothers and sisters for the elopement with the Groom that could occur at any moment.

hello sean, its been awhile since i posted. i got a new phone and it doesnt allow me to comment on websites and i dont own a computer. i have a question and i am pretty sure you could help me understand the "big picture" my question is this; where does the country of jordan currently stand? its my understanding that jordan, in the past, was not completely on bored just yet with an all out attack on israel yet according to psalm 83 and a number of other passages jordan is in fact listed among the nations that come against israel. is jordan at this point fully on bored with an attack on israel? where do they currently stand?

Jordan literally (pun intended) stands between Iraq and a hard place.

King Abdullah is as smart as his father was after the June 1967 war. The problem is if he can survive as monarch of Jordan for much longer. I seriously doubt this is possible. The Islamist forces to his north may well drive him from power and that will prepared Jordan for its fate in the Psalm 83 war concluding battle.

At least the western half of Jordan will one day soon become Israeli territory. In the future all of it will be.
