Mideast Matters May Meltdown in 2010!

By Bill Salus

Major Mideast wars are coming according to the Bible prophecies in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39. It would be prudent for people to prepare now, in 2010, for their soon and sequential arrivals.

It is public knowledge that as of December 2009 Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas became allied together by bonafide war pacts against Israel. Iran is a member of Ezekiel 38-39 and Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas appear to be identified in Psalm 83. These war pacts reportedly commit them to fight alongside each other should any of them come under attack by Israel. Had these war pacts been in place during the 22 day conflict between Israel and Hamas that ended in January 2009, the outcome could have been dramatically different.

Back then the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.) seemingly ambushed Hamas with their retaliatory show of force and caught these others off guard. None of them were able to lift a finger to rescue Hamas from the pounding inflicted by the I.D.F. Iran’s nuclear program was incomplete, Hezbollah was in the process of restocking their rocket arsenals, and Syrian war scars from 1948, 1967, and 1973 made them reluctant to join alongside Hamas. Thus, these vowed enemies of Israel were reduced to sideline saber-rattling at the time.

However, matters have deteriorated and are quite different today. A brief review of Mideast events occurring since the Israel – Hamas war suggests the Fertile Crescent is presently a ticking end time’s bomb set to explode. In addition to the war pacts described above, here are a few more troublesome interim occurrences:

1. Israelis are being fitted for gas masks.
2. Israelis are preparing for a multi-front chemical war with Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, and Hamas.
3. Israel is constructing new and renovating thousands of old bomb shelters.
4. Israel is threatening a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s nuclear sites.
5. Iran could have a nuclear bomb within eighteen months.
6. Syria is now thought to have the most powerful scud missiles in the world.
7. Syria has reportedly shipped scud missiles to Hezbollah.
8. Syria has threatened to attack major Israeli cities in the event of war.
9. Hezbollah has declared that it can wipe out one-half of Israel’s army.
10. Hezbollah has been training for hand to hand combat inside Israeli cities.
11. Hezbollah and Syria reportedly have chemical weapons.
12. Hezbollah has stockpiled over 50,000 rockets.
13. Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are within rocket reach of Israel’s enemies.
14. Hamas reportedly has rockets that can reach Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona.

These are just a few of the numerous events that point toward war soon in the Middle East. The Israel – Hamas war created a heightened degree of animosity amongst Israel’s Arab and Persian enemies against Israel. As a result of the conflict, Turkey restricted relations with Israel and the Arab League voted unanimously again not to normalize relations with Israel.

Warranting additional concerns, King Abdullah of Jordan recently voiced serious dissatisfaction about his country's fragile peace treaty with Israel. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he warned that "Jerusalem could blow up into another war" and declared "Jordan was better off economically before it made peace with Israel in 1994." Jordan and Egypt are the only Arab States presently at peace with Israel making Abdullah's statements extremely disconcerting.

Odds are strong that war is about to break out soon in the Middle East. Diplomatic solutions to resolve the conflict have continually failed. Relations between Iran and Israel, the Arab League and Israel, and even America and Israel are desperately tense and in a seeming state of disrepair.

At no time in Israel’s history has it ever faced an existential threat of the magnitude it faces presently. Israel’s ancient enemies possessed bows and arrows, but today the Jewish State faces arsenals that can wipe it off the map.

Humanity ought to now heed the war prophecies of the Bible and prepare for war rather than peace in the Middle East! These prophecies are scheduled to occur soon and sequentially each building upon the other. According to scripture the aftermath of these wars will lead to a one world order, construction of a third Jewish Temple, and the arrival of Antichrist.

Time is of the essence evidenced by events stage setting in the Holy Land. Christians, not knowing if they will experience these prophetic wars or be Raptured prior, should consider living each day on earth as though it were their last. In so doing, they will improve their Christian witness. These are the days when Evangelists and Eschatologists should work together in order to bring more people to Christ.

The table is set for sure and the guests are about to arrive. I expect to see the Psalm 83 events before the end of the year, as Iran uses Hezbollah and Hamas to launch an attack on Israel, as a diversion to an impending Israeli attack on Iran.

If Hezbollah does have scud missles, the attack must be imminent, and I am sure Israel will "pay back" Damascus for giving those scuds to the terrorists.

Israel is about to extend her borders.....big time!!

If Israel's support dwindles further she will be attacked....this could be caused by the Rapture.

Israel’s ancient enemies possessed (bows and arrows), but today the Jewish State faces arsenals that can wipe it off the map.
With regard to the above article comment: It looks like Israel's enemies still have bows and arrows.
The (bows) of today are the missile launch pads. The (arrows) are the missiles launched from those bows. GOD'S imagery very up to date.

Thank you for being the watchman on the wall for us. You seem to have seen farther and apparently more correctly than others. I have wondered for a while (since reading your great book) what would set it all off, what would happen to start the Psm83 war. I think now it is America pulling away from Israel, something we can see happening now. Of couse that will have great consiquences for America, as you pointed out in your book about the curse for curse part of the promise to Abraham. Keep being that watchman, we all benefit from your work. May God bless you my brother. David.

I just found your website about a month ago. I have read every single thing I can find here about Israel, Psalm 83, etc... My birthday is next month, so today I bought myself "Isralestine" as an early present. I can hardley wait for it to come , and I know that I will DEVOUR it when I get it!

Your style of writing is so easy to read and follow, and I get what you are saying instantly. I gave my heart to Jesus Christ 36 years ago, and, like you, eschatology was my passion instantly.

I had the privilege of sitting under the preaching of Pastor Ray Stedman at Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto, CA. all those years ago. He taught us how to look for typology, etc..., in the Word, and how to read our Bibles for ourselves. What a blessing to begin my journey with Christ under the teaching of such a great and Godly man!!

Now, with the "discovery" of your website and the anticipation of reading "Isralestine", I feel the excitement and the passion I had for God's Word and our Bridegroom's soon coming for us as intensely as I did in the beginning of my Christian walk.

I've even begun to re-read the Books of Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc..., from beginning to end so that I, too, can divide what prophecies have already been fulfilled from those that are still future.

The Ezek.38-39 Gog/Magog war didn't fit yet into what I know about God's sequence of events for these end days. Also, people were coming out with "Muslim antichrist" theories, "Muslim one world religion" theories that the Holy Spirit just kept yelling "NOT SO!" to in my spirit. I've always known that Islam MUST be so subdued worldwide in order for antichrist to rise.

The "missing link" in prophecy for me was Psalm 83!!! NOW I see how all the things God has shown me over all these 36 years will come together, even Exekiel 38-39, Isaiah 17, etc...!! The most exciting part is that Psalm 83 could come right out of TODAY'S headlines and news reports!!! I truly believe Psalm 83's fulfillment is any moment. Praise our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!

We have an Egyptian neighbor here where we live, and he keeps up with Mid East news via Egyptian T.V. on a cable system my husband my recommended about 7 months ago. Egypt KNOWS that Israel is going to war with them very soon, and they are very AFRAID of Israel. I intend to lend this neighbor my copy of "Isralestine" as soon as I have finished it. I have a feeling that this is a "Divine Appointment", and I ask you to pray with my husband and me that this neighbor and his family come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through your writing of this book.

May God bless you abundantly for your obedience and faith by sharing what you have learned from His Holy Spirit and His Holy Word in your writings and this website.

In the great Love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Sherry Brown

Israel is slumbering and dwelling carelessly, while their enemies grow in numbers, strength, and advanced weapondry. Israel and the U.S. refuse to confront these enemies. This is the exact scenario described in Ezekiel 38-39. The hebrew word for safely is "betach" which also has a dual meaning, in the context it desribes Israel as dwelling carelessly.
