The Glorious Land

Please click on the Archives arrow above, and review Prophecy Updates 44 and 45 before reading this update.  This update is a continuation of WHY the final all out war will not break out until a false peace occurs in the Middle East.

Ezekiel 38:8,9

[8] After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and THEY SHALL DWELL SAFELY ALL OF THEM. [9] Thou shalt ascend and come LIKE A STORM, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

Daniel 11:41

[41] He shall enter also into THE GLORIOUS LAND, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these SHALL ESCAPE out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

The ancient boil of conflict between the descendants of Jacob, Ishmael, and the six sons of Keturah, with all its internal blend of impurities, is finally coming to a head in the Middle East. The current drastic rise in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis will, in the end, be the catalyst that brings a temporary false peace between them.  The reasons for this false peace have been outlined thoroughly in the last five prophecy updates.  The apparently genuine peace will be shattered suddenly by a rapid blitzkrieg attack from the north by Syria.  In league with Syria will be Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan.  I feel very confident of all but the last two named, and it could well be two other countries in the Middle East.  Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran will move rapidly southward through the “glorious land” of Israel like a fast moving thunderstorm, bypassing the land where the people of Moab, Ammon, and Edom were settled when Daniel wrote his prophecies in about 600 B.C.   The descendants of Edom (Jacob’s brother), and Ammon and Moab (the sons of Lot), as found on every published map for this time period, were settled immediately to the southeast, east, and northeast of the Dead Sea, precisely in the country we know as Jordan today.  Hence, we can know that the antichrist will bypass Jordan as he moves south through Israel.  Why would he bypass Jordan?  She has no strategic, political, or economic advantage to offer him, but the Suez Canal and Egypt do, so he will head southwest toward that area after having driven the woman Israel into the Negev Wilderness south of Beersheva.

Revelation 12:6

[6]  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Daniel 11:42

[42] He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

Lord willing, in Prophecy Update Number 47, I will continue to exposit on the remainder of the eleventh chapter of Daniel.  If you want to know what Israel is trying to do currently with her stepped up war against the Palestinians, I would recommend that you go into the prophecy archives and read what I wrote Ariel Sharon would eventually do when negotiations completely broke down with Yassar Arafat.  It is found in Prophecy Update Number 3, and involves what I wrote concerning a “forced peace.”  If you want more information as to why Israel flees into the Negev Wilderness, and what has already been prepared for her there, then review Prophecy Updates 4 through 12.  The events now occurring in the Middle East are opening the door for the beginning of the Tribulation Period, and the door when opened will usher in a false peace, which is the calm before the tornado.
