The Muslim Brotherhood is now aiming at Jordan’s king Abdullah, in their quest to form the Psalm 83 confederacy.
Readers of this blog will have noted that I believe the biblical Antichrist will come from the modern nation of Jordan. I have itemized my reasons in several posts, starting with “The Jordanian Antichrist”. A more complete study of this subject can be found in chapter seven of The Spirit of Prophecy.
My analysis of the Antichrist’s ethnicity is based on a study of the bible’s End Times passages, and is not dependent on the events in the news. Go and read through my posts and you will see that there is a solid case that the Antichrist will come from the descendants of Jacob’s brother, Esau. Nevertheless, the events in the news have an uncanny tendency to follow biblical prophecy.
Note that Abdullah is not a descendant of Esau, though evidence is that his children are.
Now it appears that the rebels of the Muslim Brotherhood are taking aim at the king of Jordan, Abdullah II. Its funny how Muslims kill people accused of witchcraft, and yet the bible says “rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft”. (1 Samuel 15:23)
There is even evidence that the US administration has decided to support the ouster of Abdullah.
“Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner managed to create panic [and anger] in the Royal Palace in Amman when he stated that there was “thirst for change” in Jordan and that the Jordanian people had “economic, political concerns,” as well as “aspirations.”
Very clearly the American government doesn’t learn from its mistakes. It appears they are intent on throwing as many of their friends under the bus, as they can!
It’s not that he has been an oppressive ruler, or really bad in any way. Yes, there’s some corruption there, but that’s par for the course in the Muslim world. It’s just that he has been keeping (albeit reluctantly) the peace treaty with Israel, negotiated by his father king Hussein. This is unforgivable to the Brotherhood.
The truth is that the world-wide economy is in a recession, but the Brotherhood is using this as a pretext to foment discontent.
These current events beg the question “What if Abdullah and his family are deposed as leaders of Jordan? Does this mean that the Antichrist could not come from this family? What if Abdullah is assassinated?”
My first reaction, when I thought that the Muslim Brotherhood could target Jordan was “Oh, no!” but then I had another thought;
If the Antichrist were to come from this family, they must NOT be involved in the Psalm 83 attack on Israel! The Antichrist, or the Little Horn, will be trusted to keep his word, by the leadership of Israel. A man from a rabidly anti-semitic family would not be trusted, and though this family has this history, their involvement in a recent, and very large attack against Israel would be a raw wound that would prevent the Israeli leadership from trusting such a man.
For this reason I would predict that Abdullah will lose his grip on Jordan, and he and his family will have to flee… If he survives. If he doesn’t survive, his family will still flee. Where will they flee to? I don’t know. Israel? Iraq? The USA? It really doesn’t matter, so long as they are not a part of that war, and are able to make some public statements against it. If they were to take shelter in Israel during this war it would give them great credibility with Israelis later on. I can’t say they will, but this is a real possibility.
No, in the final analysis, I still think the Little Horn will come from the Jordanian royal family, though I can’t say for sure which person it is.
