Mitt Romney, the US Republican presidential candidate, is now saying that if elected he will aid the rebels in Syria;
“Iran is sending arms to Assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for them. We should be working no less vigorously with our international partners to support the many Syrians who would deliver that defeat to Iran – rather than sitting on the sidelines,”
While condemning the Obama administration’s reaction to the killing of US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, Romney is now acting in the same way in Syria, as Obama did in Egypt, and Libya.
Didn’t Romney learn anything from the comedy of errors the US policy has been on Libya and Egypt? It appears not.
A lot of speculation has questioned the apparent absence of the United States of America in biblical prophecy. What is the role of the USA in prophecy anyway?
I think, from the events of the last four years, the USA is an enabler of the Muslim Brotherhood. By supporting the rebellions in the Arab world, the USA is assisting the Muslim nations of the Middle East to form the coalition found in Psalm 83, the coalition that makes an all-out attack on Israel!
5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah Psalm 83:5-8
Just who are these tribes mentioned today? As I have documented more thoroughly in The Spirit of Prophecy they are;
Edom = The southern part of the nation to the east of Israel
Ishmaelites = Saudi Arabia and perhaps Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, etc.
Moab = Northern part of the nation directly to the east of Jerusalem
Hagarenes = The Arabs of southern Syria (1 Chronicles 10:10, 19, 20)
Gebal = A city of Lebanon
Ammon = The city of Amman is named after this tribe
Amalek = The Arabs of the Sinai peninsula, Egyptian citizens today. They will drag Egypt into this conflict.
Phillistines = The inhabitants of the Gaza strip
Tyre = Another city of Lebanon
Assur = The ancient Assyrians, living mainly in Northern Iraq
“The children of Lot” are the Ammonites and Moabites of the nation directly to the east of Jerusalem. The repetition of these names might just indicate their central role in this war.
While the psalm does not indicate the result of this war, I think you can find those results in places like Isaiah 17:1, Isaiah 19, and Zechariah 11.
1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1
In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction. Isaiah 19:18
1 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. 2 Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. Zechariah 11:1-2
The Psalm 83 war is almost imminent. We are watching the coalition being put together on our daily news. It is almost all together now, it is just the final shuffling that needs to take place. Iran is not part of that coalition. Something will happen there to remove them from the fight.
Lebanon and Iraq are today a part of Iran’s axis. We will see something happen in those nations, to change their orientation to that of the Sunni Muslims of Saudi Arabia. I can’t say exactly what will occur, but the fall of Assad in Syria will cut off Hezbollah from Iran, and Sunni terrorists are already on the offensive in Iraq.
Yes indeed, the Americans are not making the situation in the Middle East any better. It almost seems like everything they do there, in recent years, has been counter-productive!
When God told king Saul that “rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft”, we ought to have taken note! Whether Obama, or Romney, those who support rebellion are not friends of God!
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. I Samuel 15:23
