All the actors have taken their places. Satan feels victorious. Does he actually think that he will prevail over God’s perfect plan for the world and His people Israel? Perhaps he thinks it, but that does not mean it will happen.
Just like in heaven, before Lucifer was cast out, along with 1/3 of the angels who followed him; his pride and arrogance continues to drive him to change history. History is in the hand of God – He knows it from its beginning to its end. God owns history. He knows every detail. God uses what Satan means for evil, and takes it and makes it useful to further His prophetic Word.
“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive” (Genesis 50:20).
Does Satan not realize that no matter what he does, God is ultimately in control? I don’t know the answer to that, but I do know that Satan knows the Word of God better than you or I know it. So he must see that it’s futile to think that he will conquer God and Israel. Satan is the rebel of rebels. He knows no other way to act. His quest for power over the universe will not allow him to acquiesce. He is steadfast in his lust to be “like God.”
Satan is watching as all of the major nations now stand against Israel. Canada was the last major nation on earth to be supportive of Israel. But now that is gone. Canada has voted in a man who not only hates Israel, but he has become a Muslim. Whether or not that election was rigged, only God knows.
Now, the Arabic world has proclaimed that the holiest sites to the Israelis are in actuality – Islamic sites! The Arabic nations are emboldened by the United Nations rabid hatred for Israel.
PM Netanyahu made an accurate statement about the Grand Mufti and his relationship with Hitler during WWII. Bibi said that Hitler’s intention was to expel The Jews from Germany. But the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem told him that the Jews would then come there. Hitler asked him what then should be done. The response from the Grand Mufti was “Burn them.”
BHO scolded Netanyahu for these words. He doesn’t want truth to be told.
So, what is the war of which I speak? I believe that it’s the war spoken of in Psalm 83. That Psalm even speaks of the Palestinians, calling them by their true name “The Philistines.”
For those who are not familiar with Psalm 83, here it is:
“Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them;
They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.
Deal with them as with Midian,
As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
Who were destroyed at En-dor,
Who became as dung for the ground.
Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb
And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves
The pastures of God.”
O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
Like chaff before the wind.
Like fire that burns the forest
And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
So pursue them with Your tempest
And terrify them with Your storm.
Fill their faces with dishonor,
That they may seek Your name, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,
And let them be humiliated and perish,
That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth” (Psalm 83)
Some believe that Psalm 83 is not a war, but an imprecatory prayer to God to destroy the enemies of Israel. They believe that this will ultimately lead up to the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war. This very well may be true. Soon, the world will see. As I said – we are at the doorstep of one of the most amazing displays of the power of our God.
Brethren, I believe that we are so very close to this war. The whole world will be astounded. I pray that many will see the power and majesty and love that God Almighty has for His people Israel. I pray that the eyes of many people will be opened and that they will want to know this mighty God who saves Israel. I pray that many will be saved!
