Psalm 83 and Caliphate Revisited

MC900030073The Muslim Caliphate and The Psalm 83 War: The Domino Theory Ends Here

(This is a reprint of my post of February 19, 2011. It seems more appropriate than ever.)

We are now seeing the dominoes falling at a dizzying pace. Where will it lead? Where will it stop? The final result will be the resurrection of the Islamic Caliphate. The entire Islamic Empire will be revived from Indonesia to Morocco, and from Turkey and the “stans” to the Sudan and Somalia. This will transpire in just a few years.

How can such a monumental event occur so fast? There are two forces, one physical, one spiritual. There is a physical theory of dominoes falling called “domino amplifier” which has proven that each domino can be larger than the previous. This can be demonstrated by starting with a normal one and, in 29 steps, knocking down the last one as tall as a skyscraper. See Domino Amplifier (scroll down to Article 1.68 on this link).

Thus what has already begun in Gaza, Lebanon, Tunisia and now Egypt, Syria and Iraq, will continue to amplify until the fall of the Arab world to radical Islam and the revived Caliphate.

The second force is spiritual. Radical Islam is above all else a spiritual movement. By this I mean that it is a political ideology on steroids. If Communism was not godless it may have conquered the world. Ideas are not enough. But ideas with fanatical allegiance to an apocalyptic deity will indeed threaten the entire world. Now couple these facts with the Biblical narrative.

Psalm 83 is a core prophecy that must be understood. The first five verses explain the motive of these enemies: hatred of the God of the Bible who is worshipped by both Christians and Jews. Since God is out of reach, they must indirectly attack His chosen people Israel, even to the extent “that the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5).

The Psalm continues by listing the actual attacking countries. The prophecy stands alone, but is even more profound when compared with a more common prophecy of the Gog and Magog War recorded in Ezekiel 38. This later war also lists the countries involved. The amazing fact is that none of the Psalm 83 protagonist countries are listed in Ezekiel’s prophecy. This leads to the conclusion that Israel actually wins the Psalm 83 war and occupies much of the surrounding territory. The first Israel land promise to Abraham was “from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18)

Another distinction between the prophecies is that the Psalm 83 nations in the closer ring around the land of Israel are all Arab Muslim nations. The nations remaining are all non-Arab Muslims. It is this larger circle of nations that fulfills the Biblical antichrist prophecies. The Islamic Empire will rise again and be governed under Sharia Law by the Caliphate. This revived empire will be ruled by the Islamic messianic figure called the Mahdi (or Twelfth Imam).

My friend Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim and former terrorist, expressed the process clearly in his excellent book: God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the  Bible (p.81; Top Executive Media, 2008). “Biblically, the Empire of the Antichrist will not be a new empire; rather it will be the revival of a previously great empire that will have suffered what the Bible calls a ‘fatal head wound’. (Revelation 13:3) But the wound will be healed and the empire will be revived from the dead as it were: ‘And the beast [Antichrist Empire] which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain and his fatal wound healed. And the whole world was amazed and followed after the beast.” (Revelation 13:2-3) “Today the Caliphate exists only in the desires of hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide who want to revive this beast that was slain March 3, 1924. The last Caliphate – the Ottoman Caliphate – was officially abolished by the first President of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The abolition of the Caliphate is profoundly significant for our study. For it was on this day that the Islamic Empire, led by a sitting Caliph for over fourteen hundred years suffered a fatal head wound. The position of “head of state” of the Islamic Empire was severed.”

The part that jumps out in Walid’s quote is the interpretation of the fatal head wound. By applying that verse to the line of Caliphs, we come full circle to our conclusion. The Middle East dominoes are falling. It is now unstoppable until the rise of the final Caliph and his Caliphate over the Muslim world and however many other nations that succumb. Ignorance and apathy are blinding many from this truth. It is time for the West to open their eyes to the inevitable realities. (READ MORE)

From Tunisia to Jerusalem

19 11 2011

Daily reports are flooding the Internet detailing the rapid expansion of Islamist goals in all areas of the Arab Spring. As the Muslim Brotherhood assumes power in state after state, two clear goals emerge. One is to impose Sharia law on all citizens. Number two is to “liberate” Jerusalem.

Reports from BBC sources in Tunisia tell of an agreement to name Hammadi Jebali as the new Prime Minister of Tunisia. Just last Sunday at a huge stadium rally he publicly declared: “The liberation of Tunisia will, God willing, bring about the liberation of Jerusalem.” Jebali declared that the occasion was “a divine moment in a new state, and in, hopefully, a 6th caliphate,” referring to the historical system of Islamic monarchies. (The video with English subtitles is available at MEMRI here.)

Hamas Speaks in Tunisia Here is the quote from Tunisia Live: Tunisian Islamist party Ennahda invited Houda Naïm, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council based in Gaza, to speak at a rally in Sousse, a coastal Tunisian city, this past Sunday. The event marked the first time in known memory a member of Hamas has addressed the Tunisian public.

Both speakers at the rally called for the liberation of Jerusalem. This obsession with Jerusalem brings to mind the clear scriptural promise of the God of Israel. The Bible describes this obsession with Jerusalem as “drunkenness”:

The burden of the word of Yehovah against Israel. Thus says Yehovah, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. Zechariah 12:1-3

Yehovah also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But Yehovah will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Joel 3:16

And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of Yehovah shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as Yehovah has said, among the remnant whom Yehovah calls. Joel 2:32

It is happening so fast! Please continue to watch and pray for the shalom of Jerusalem that only comes from the Prince of Shalom, Jesus Messiah of Israel.

Syrian Snipers and Turks in Cairo

13 09 2011

The New Middle East

The winds of radical change are blowing over the cradle of civilization. Almost daily some new event adds to the reshaping of old loyalties. Egypt has fallen from the Western sphere and is quickly descending into ancient barbaric blood lust. Twice in as many weeks, radicals have attacked the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. Today, the Prime Minister of Turkey is in Cairo extending his influence, attempting to re-establish a world-wide Islamic Caliphate. This, only days after announcing that Turkish warships will guard the next Flotilla to Gaza. He is seeking to intimidate Israel and Cyprus who lay claim to massive new natural gas deposits offshore in the Mediterranean.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo on Tuesday that the recognition of a Palestinian state was “not an option but an obligation.”

Meanwhile, also today, Syrian snipers killed five mourners at a funeral near Hama. The five were shot dead by security police snipers from the rooftop of a public school and a municipal water tank in the town of Kfar Nubouzeh, when hundreds of mourners began chanting slogans demanding the downfall of President Bashar Assad. Such is the perverse concept of “security” in the Islamic dictatorship. This utter disregard for the sanctity of life is endemic in Islam. It is a well know boast in Islam that they will defeat Israel (the little satan) and America ( the great satan) because “you love life, the Muslim loves death.”

In 2007, two years before he killed thirteen people and wounded twenty-nine at Fort Hood, Texas, Nidal Malik Hasan prepared a slide show for his fellow Army doctors on the subject of Islam. One of his last points read: “We love death more than you love life!”

There are also plans to attack the Israeli Embassy in Jordan according to Fox News. Many times I have warned that the Psalm 83 War is close. Each new event makes it that much more inevitable. There are even those calling for a million man march in Aman. Ezekiel warned of an “eternal hatred” against Israel. God has declared that it will lead to a bloodbath for Edom (Jordan hanging by a thread). It has begun. It will culminate with a terrible defeat for the nations immediately around, and a great victory for Israel by the hand of Yehovah God.

Your eternal hatred for the people of Israel led you to butcher them when they were helpless, when I had already punished them for all their sins. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Yehovah, since you show no distaste for blood, I will give you a bloodbath of your own. Your turn has come! Ezekiel 35:5-6 NLT

So what does this mean for us? Should we be fearful? God forbid! It is time for us to snatch people from the burning and bring them to the One Who is Salvation, Yeshua (Jesus means salvation). It is time for us to wake up, stand up and speak up! Our Lord said he would not leave us or forsake us. We may suffer, but He will be with us in the process. Jesus spoke of these things in Luke 21 with the admonition:

But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 NASB

Caliphate Coming

29 07 2011

Breaking News Today: Huge news today with the announcement of the “retirement” of General Isik Kosaner, the head of Turkey’s military. The three generals over Turkey’s ground, naval and air forces also “resigned”. This pretty much completed the total takeover of Turkey by Islamists.

The slide towards an Islamic theocracy has accelerated sharply in recent months with this news signaling a total plunge. The seismic advance of Islam threatens the  NATO alliance for all of Europe. Just a few short years ago everyone was wondering if Turkey would be admitted to the European Union. Perhaps the question is will the EU be admitted to the Islamic Caliphate?

The last Caliphate ended when Turkey turned to secularism in the 1920’s at the end of the Ottoman Empire. Yet the Koran predicts the rise of an end time Caliph to rule over a revived world-wide Islamic empire. This now appears more probable and imminent.

We have been warning for some time of a regional war based on Psalm 83. We have also reminded you of Ezekiel 38 which speaks of Gog and Magog War. It is important to notice the sequence of these two separate wars. The countries listed in Psalm 83 correspond to the modern countries with borders next to Israel. However, none of these are mentioned in the list of countries in the Ezekiel 38 War. Why not? Perhaps the answer is a decisive victory by Israel in the Psalm 83 War extending Israel’s borders to the Genesis 15 definition: On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates. Genesis 15:18.

Stay tuned and keep praying!

Radicalizing or Radicals Rising?

7 03 2011

Radicals Rising Leads to Sunset Over Cairo

A serious media mistake is routinely using the term “radicalizing” to explain jihad. “Radicals rising” is a more accurate term. DEBKAfile’s sources report that large sums of Iranian petrodollars have reached the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and radicalized its message to the Egyptian people. It is true that Iran’s propaganda is a radicalized message, but it finds ready acceptance in young Muslim minds because of generations of indoctrination.
It is beyond the Western mind’s frame of reference to accept that Islamists hold their position logically from the beginning. Since we are the product of a Judeo/Christian heritage, Islamic jihad doesn’t make sense. We are taught to love our enemies, they are taught to kill their enemies (which by the way is defined as all non-Muslims and apostate Muslims). Psalm 83 (below) clearly declares their opposition to the God of Israel.

Entire generations of young Muslims have been taught from pre-school to hate and kill Jews and Christians. That is when they were radicalized, not between weeks four and five of the Egyptian revolution (or fill in any other Muslim revolt). Koranic basic doctrine teaches that chaos and destruction are the means of overthrowing the infidels or as in Egypt’s case, the apostate Westernized Muslim states. The fundamental Islamic prophecy of the last days requires chaos and destruction to usher in the final Caliph and conquest of the whole world.

Therefore, what we have is radicals rising up to fulfill the apocalyptic vision. It is logically within the literal reading of their holy texts. Yet, the media persists in feigning shock when what they insisted was a democracy movement suddenly “became radicalized”. It is the only conclusion that makes sense to the naive Western humanist. Everything the media believes rejects the idea of anyone actually choosing to die for their god. It does not compute, therefore they were “radicalized” somehow. Even the Ft. Hood shooter must have been “radicalized” because he could not possibly believe in such radical jihad all by himself.

The 9-11 suicide jihadists were not mysteriously radicalized while standing in line at the airport. They worked hard and prepared for a long time on an unthinkable plot to hijack airplanes and fly them into skyscrapers. To us it was unthinkable; to them it was brilliant and perfectly logical.

The truth is this. It is not the “bad” Muslims rising up, but faithful literalist Muslims doing what their imams are preaching every Friday at the mosques. Good Muslims are faithful, bad Muslims (from their viewpoint) are Westernized or modernized and are therefore unfaithful and even apostate.

Pray for the Muslim hordes to turn from the god of Islam to find Yehovah, God of Israel and Yeshua haMeshiach (Jesus the Messiah), the Son of God.

Consider the contrast between the nature of Islam and the nature of our Judeo/Christian heritage.

Nature of Islamic Heritage:

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5 NKJV).

Nature of Judeo/Christian Heritage:

If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever (1 Corinthians 13:3-8 NLT).
