Isralestine Q. & A. - “Bill, my name is Marcia and I'm not a minister or a scholar, just a retired autoworker who has studied prophecy for many years. I have read Isralestine and initially attempted to disprove the book in my own mind because it sounded like just another prophecy book with too much opinion and not enough scripture. However, please be informed that I could not find any inconsistencies. The reason I tried to find fault with your book is because it's almost to good to be true!
I searched the scriptures and read many parts of Isralestine several times. It really does fill in the gap between now and the Russian-Iranian led invasion of Israel described in Ezekiel 38-39.
Question- “Do you think there is a possibility that after Psalm 83, seeing that India is developing close ties with Israel, that this may bring on mass conversions to Christianity when the Hindu people see the God of Israel come through for the Jews? Also, it would be wonderful to have many Muslims come to know our Lord!”
Answer: Marcia - I appreciate the fact that you were a Berean when it came to reading Isralestine and am thankful that you now give it the "two thumbs up" rating. Similarly, a retired football coach who has studied prophecy for over 30 years recently called me to tell me that he picked up a copy of Isralestine at the Tulsa 2009 prophecy conference this past April. He stated he has read the book cover to cover four times in two months and is astonished by the timely importance of the new Isralestine insights, which he had never heard before. Comments like yours and his are of great encouragement that the book is right on track with today’s events.
In response to your question above, I believe that after Psalm 83 many countries will have a greater respect for Israel's military might, not necessarily for Jehovah God or Messiah Jesus Christ. The Israeli Conquest over the Psalm 83 Arab confederacy will reinforce the faith of those familiar with the Psalm and may generate some new Christian converts, but overall I believe most of humanity will wonder in the aftermath what is in it geopolitically for them. The prime example will be witnessed through the relatively prompt confederate formation of Russia, Iran, and the other members of Ezekiel 38 in the aftermath of the Psalm 83 war. They will seek to seize Israel's spoils of war not worship their God. Additionally Muslims worldwide will be appalled at Israel for decimating their Islamic brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
Hal Lindsy Reports on Psalm 83
I believe that Psalm 83 is about to, and allowed to, occur because the international community has become entirely disconnected from God’s divine foreign policy in Genesis 12:3. When Israel reigns victorious over the Arab confederacy most of humanity will fail to associate God’s empowerment of the Israeli Defense Forces with their amazing victory. Some will see the connection, but many will perceive the events through a limited secular mindset. This will be unfortunate because the LORD will use the Israeli Conquest to put the world on official notice that His Genesis 12:3 foreign policy is still effectually in tact.
The world lesson will be that if Jacob’s (Israel) own twin brother Esau (Edomites / Palestinians) gets cursed for attempting to curse Israel then what Gentile nation from that point forward that seeks to do the same (curse Israel), will be spared from the cursing they deserve.
Furthermore, in the aftermath of Ezekiel 38 and 39, I believe that many countries will begin to fear, not necessarily revere the Jewish God Jehovah. Even the Jewish nation appears to gravitate toward Jehovah worship through the reinstatement of their ancient Mosaic Law rather than Christianity. I believe that many will convert to Christianity before, during, and after both Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38, but I attribute most of their conversions to the Rapture event and the preaching of the 144,000 witnesses of Revelation 7, which I believe will be occurring in or around a similar time frame.
Post Rapture Christians will likely have a decent understanding of the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 prophecies and will be able to use their final fulfillments to better witness to the world about the credibility of the Bible and the Messiahsip of Jesus Christ. Muslims and Hindus, like many others in humanity today, are beginning to question the soundness of their belief systems in light of powerful current world events. More and more they are inclining a listening ear and an open heart to the gospel and Bible prophecy. For those among their ranks willing to step beyond the limitations of their religious dogmas the fulfillment of the Psalm 83 and subsequent Ezekiel 38 prophecies will likely play a powerful role in their future conversions to Christianity.
