Outside the Box Israel Peace

24 02 2017


Here is an intriguing thought for meditation over the weekend. What if the Psalm 83 War is already over? What if Israel and the Psalm 83 states agree to a regional peace with Israel. This new cartoon raises the question. These same states have been trying to destroy Israel since 1948 through several wars.

I have maintained for several years that there would be one more war which Israel wins and then enjoys real peace for a few years. The big war of Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38 is clearly when Israel is at peace with un-walled villages. This is not the case today. When Morsi (of the Muslim Brotherhood) ruled Egypt for one year, it seemed the fall of Jordan would allow for one last battle. But then a more friendly government rose in Egypt, and Jordan continues as Israel’s friend. So, I am willing to consider adjusting my scenario.

So what contradicts this new possibility? First, there may not be an agreement at all. The prospect could disappear in a puff of smoke. Also, Syria is certainly not yet in such a position. Plus, Hezbollah now has 100,000 rockets aimed at Israel, and they effectively control Lebanon thus blocking a role for Lebanon to join the peace. Finally, this new scenario is hard to get around Isaiah 17 and 19. The first text declares the complete destruction of Damascus. The second chapter describes a worse Egyptian civil war than Syria’s, along with the Nile River drying up completely, after which the remaining Egyptians accept the God of Israel and His “Savior”. Hmm, maybe I will stick with my original scenario.

And it will be for a sign and for a witness to Yehovah of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to Yehovah because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them. Then Yehovah will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know Yehovah in that day, and will make sacrifice and offering; yes, they will make a vow to Yehovah and perform it. And Yehovah will strike Egypt, He will strike and heal it; they will return to Yehovah, and He will be entreated by them and heal them. Isaiah 19:20-22

Have fun figuring this one out, and enjoy your weekend!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
