When Israel dwells securely Iran intends to invade

Bible Predicts Israel and Iran will go to war!
By Bill Salus
Current Middle East events suggest that several key prophetic biblical pages of the past have flipped open for their final fulfillment. The Arabs, Jews, and Persians are presently arming themselves for what could easily become the “Mother of Mideast Conflicts”. The ever illusive Arab – Israeli peace talks have become apocalyptically complicated by their collective concerns about Iran’s nuclear aspirations.

President Obama is actively trying to diffuse the volatile situation through the similar failed diplomatic efforts of the former Clinton and Bush administrations. Will he prevail? Is there a peaceful end in sight, or has humanity come to the crossroads of a powerful last day’s crisis?

The world cries “heaven forbid”, but heaven foreknows that war is inevitable.
According to an ancient Bible prophecy contained in Ezekiel 38-39, Iran, formerly known as Persia, will someday invade Israel. The Hebrew prophet declares that Iran, Russia, Turkey, Libya, along with a consortium of several other nations, invades a very wealthy Israel that is supposedly “dwelling securely” “without walls” in “the latter years”. Ezekiel declares that this end time’s confederacy plans to destroy the Jewish State and confiscate their national wealth.
For several sound reasons many respected eschatologists believe that the fulfillment of this prophetic event is near. However, in a previous article entitled, “Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38, which is the next Middle East news headline”, I point out that it could be near but probably not next.
Presently Israel is not dwelling securely without walls in the prosperous condition Ezekiel describes. In fact, they have been preparing for a multi-front war with Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, and the Hamas in tandem with a possible strategic strike against Iran’s nuclear sites. Furthermore Israel has constructed a massive wall spanning approximately 400 feet intended to keep Palestinian terrorists out of Israel proper.
When will Israel dwell securely?
Ezekiel points out ten chapters earlier that a time is coming when the modern day Jewish State will dwell securely. This condition of national security results from forthcoming judgments determined against the Arab nations that share common borders with Israel. The prophet declares the following:

“And there shall no longer be a pricking brier or a painful thorn for the house of Israel from among all who are around them, who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.” ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God.”’” (Ezekiel 28:24-26; NKJV)

For approximately two-thousand years the Jews were scattered throughout the Gentile nations of the world and over the past sixty-one years they have been returning into the land of Israel. This is in direct fulfillment of the first part of this Ezekiel 28 prophecy.
Continued Middle East conflicts have evidenced that the Arab States and their sponsored terrorist organizations are indeed “all those around them [Israel] who despise them”. Thus they have become “a pricking brier or a painful thorn” to the reforming Jewish State.
Furthermore, Ezekiel declares that Israel will someday “dwell safely” and “build houses”. For the past sixty-one years Israel has been building houses in order to accommodate the influx of returning Jews into their ancient homeland. However, presently the Obama administration is pressuring Israel to freeze all home building in Palestinian occupied territories.

This political attempt to create peace between the Arabs and Jews is not the remedy prescribed in the Ezekiel 28 prophecy. The prophet does not encourage the forfeiture of Jewish land nor a moratorium on housing; rather he declares that devastating judgments are coming against the Arab States sharing common borders with Israel!
How will these devastating judgments be formatted?
irst and foremost it is of utmost importance to note that the God of the Bible does not delight in the destruction of anyone according to John 3:16, which states; “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
However, these Arab populations are predominately Muslims and believe in Allah rather than the God of the Bible’s “only begotten Son” whom Christians declare to be Jesus Christ. Furthermore for the most part, they don’t recognize Israel’s right to exist and are the primary reason the Jewish nation does not “dwell securely” today. Their thorny behavior necessitates their forthcoming judgments.
These judgments will be executed through the might of the Israeli Defense Forces, who exist today in fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Extensive details about these judgments are provided in my book Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East.

Israel “dwelling securely” “without walls” in “the latter years” whereby they can continue to “build houses” and “plant vineyards” without restriction occurs after the I.D.F. defeats the Arabs that surround and despise them.
According to another ancient Bible prophecy located in Psalm 83, these Arab States confederate in one final Arab attempt to wipe Israel off the map. This Psalm, which is a central theme of Isralestine, predicts that present political Mideast peace negotiations will fail forcing Israel and the “pricking brier” Arabs to go to war.
The modern day equivalents of this coming coalition consist of the Palestinians, Hezbollah, Hamas, Syrians, Saudis, Lebanese, Jordanians and Egyptians. This formidable confederacy represents those Arabs who have been the primary thorn in Israel’s side since it became a nation on May 14, 1948.
Isralestine references the important related Bible prophecies that find likely fulfillment as a result of this coming Psalm 83 war. Damascus, Syria will cease to exist. Jordan will surrender sovereignty to Israel. Israel will annex more territory and likely triple its present size. At least five cities in Egypt will belong to Israel. The Hamas will surrender in Gaza and many Palestinians will either be killed or become prisoners of war. Israel will take over oil and other Arab spoils of war.
Above is a sampling of prophetic results that enables Israel to remove the thorny hedge presently surrounding them and ultimately “dwell securely” in the Middle East. In the aftermath Israel will momentarily enjoy a brief calm before the next prophetic storm, which is the Ezekiel 38 and 39 Russian – Iranian led invasion.
Presently the international community frets over very serious rumors of war between Israel and Iran. The holy scriptures validate their concerns! However, Israel today is not residing in the specific conditions that Ezekiel 38 predicts. Therefore, there may even be a lesser conflict between the two nations before the massive end time’s Ezekiel 38 invasion occurs. In any case, the I.D.F. has a future—and probably soon--divine appointment to execute a series of military “judgments on all those [Arabs] around them who despise them.”

Bill I got and read your book after seeing 'What is the next mid-east headline' article. After reading the article I said 'did I miss something, where did this come from'. I have been a student of prophecy since the Great Late Planet Earth and I had never seen or heard of the Ps 83 conflict, was it missing from my Bible? What really impresses me is all the smaller prophetic passages that support this picture. Anyway, I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed and value your book. This has 'opened my eyes' and I now see the current happenings in the Mid-east in a new light. Thank you.

They will not invade, but be warned the to interpret prophesies one must have a pure heart, for I ran all prophesies in the days of the time keepers.

Excellent post Bill!

The time is up, according to some, for Iran. It was supposed to have given full disclosure and access to it's nuclear facilities and halted all processing of Uranium, by the first of September O9'! None of which has happened. In fact it is coservatively estimated that they have over 1,500 kg of Low grade refined Uranium now, which could be quickly refined to enough high grade Uranium to make 2 nuclear devices! Y'israel must either fish or cut bait... if they don't attack before the low grade uranium can be refined then all bets are off, and unless the high grade stuff can be located and destroyed or confiscated, it could very easily end up in a device capable of destroying Washington D.C. or any large city in Y'israel!

Iran is reportedly preparing for Y'israel's attack as well, so the question isn't, "Will Y'israel attack?", but what will happen next and how fast will thing traspire, once Y'israel pulls the trigger!

Blessings to all!

Maranatha! Mark

Bill, we have all heard the statement that you find what you are looking for. Before your book when I looked at the Mid-East I was looking for certain things. Now, after I read your great book, as I look at the Mid-east I am looking for other things that I would have missed or missed the significance of had I not read your book. Think of the book as a lense. An optical lense brings together seemingly unrelated bits of optical info. to make an image where there was none or a blured one before. A good book does the same thing, as yours has. As I look at the Mid-East through the "lense" of your book I see things I never did before. Thank you for your work in this. David.
