“‘No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors who are painful briers and sharp thorns. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.(Ezekiel 28:24)
The Bible makes no reference to a national entity by the name of Jordan, because the modern nation called Jordan is a relatively recent creation. The British and French victors of the first World War divided the middle east as the spoils of the ottoman empire, which had sided with the Germans, creating the nations of Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and others.
Biblically that land is known as Ammon, Moab and Edom, and is of great significance in Bible prophecy. The Ammonites and Moabites were the children born of incest by Lot and his daughters, after they fled Sodom and Gomorrah. Edom is the land given by God to Esau and his seed. Traditionally these three nations, though related to Israel, have been her enemies.
Ammon is a reference to the northern third of the modern state of Jordan, bordered on the west by the Jordan river It is currently antagonistic to Israel, but in a “cold peace”. King Abdullah, of the Hashemite family that rules Jordan, has the distinction in the Arab world of being the direct descendant of Mohammed.
Concerning the Ammonites, thus saith the LORD; Hath Israel no sons? hath he no heir? why then doth their king inherit Gad, and his people dwell in his cities?(Jeremiah 49:1)
The God of Israel wonders out loud in irony, Aren’t there enough children being born to Israel, that Ammonites inhabit the cities of Gad? Gad is the eastern bank of the Jordan river that was at one time the territory of Reuben, Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh.
But the King James obscures an important aspect of this statement by God, for According to the New American Standard, God asks “Why does Malcolm possess Gad?” In other words how is it that in the name of a false god, (Malcolm,Moloch), “Jordanians”possess the God-given territory of the children of Israel ?
Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites; and it shall be a desolate heap, and her daughters shall be burned with fire: then shall Israel be heir unto them that were his heirs, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 49:2)
Ammon, Moab and Edom all feature in the doomed Psalm 83 war, refferred to as “the children of Lot, and “Edom”.
War sirens will be heard in Rabbah, which is known now as Ammon , Jordan. The city is slated for destruction, like Damascus it shall be turned into a heap. There will no longer be a “west bank” controversy, for as a result of God’s judgement on Ammon, Israel shall retake the territory of the east bank of the Jordan.
Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled: cry, ye daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth; lament, and run to and fro by the hedges; for their king shall go into captivity, and his priests and his princes together.(Jeremiah 49:3)
Once again, the New American Standard Bible is helpful, for it tells us that “Malcolm shall go into captivity, with his priests and princes”. Malcolm, or Moloch, is just another demonic god worshipped by the pagan Arabs, and currently masquerades as Allah.
Because Ammon rejoiced over Israel’s many calamities, and partook of the everlasting hatred of Israel, according to Ezekiel also, Ammon is to suffer destruction,
For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you have clapped your hands and stamped your feet, rejoicing with all the malice of your heart against the land of Israel, therefore I will stretch out my hand against you and give you as plunder to the nations. I will wipe you out from among the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy you, and you will know that I am the LORD.’(Ezekiel 25:6-7)
But the destruction will not be total for Ammon, for He promises them in Ezekiel, “You will know that I am the LORD”, and in Jeremiah, the refugees of northern Jordan will be brought back to the land!
Behold, I will bring a fear upon thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts, from all those that be about thee; and ye shall be driven out every man right forth; and none shall gather up him that wandereth.And afterward I will bring again the captivity of the children of Ammon, saith the LORD.(Jeremiah 49:5-6)
Pray for the Muslim people, that they will indeed come to know the Lord, for these prophecies are given that all people might see what is happening and repent of their sins and call upon the name of the true and living God, while there is still time. God is not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.”Whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus who died for their sins), will be saved…”
