Jordan; Ammon,Moab and Edom…Islam in Prophecy pt 5

“‘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.

By writing lines on maps, British and French diplomats created the ‘nations’ of Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and others. The victors of World War 1 also set up Kings and Kingdoms.

Arabia was once ruled by the royal Hashemite family, who claim direct descent to Mohammed and Fatimah.  But the Hashemites were driven out of Arabia by the now ruling Saud family. The British allotted the rule over the newly created  nation,”Jordan” to the Hashemites who rule over it to this day.

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 in Biblical times 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 “Jordanians” possess the God-given territory of the children of Israel ,in the name of a false god, (Malcolm, Moloch) ?

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, referred 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 ‘desolate 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)

Moab, or central Jordan is slated for destruction at the coming of Jesus. Isaiah 25 has Israel hiding, and longing for Jesus. At the breaking of the Day of His return, Israel celebrates the Saviour, and his salvation,

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.(Isaiah 25:9)

But the next verses have Jesus’s foot on Moab’s neck as he is made to swim in a dunghill…

For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands. And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.(Isaiah 25:10-12)

Both Isaiah and Jeremiah mourn Moab and lament that her pride was her undoing. The destruction coming upon her is frightening.

Fear, and the pit, and the snare, shall be upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab, saith the LORD. He that fleeth from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that getteth up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.(Jeremiah 47:43-44)

But the destruction of North and central Jordan will not be complete, for we are told that like Ammon, a remnant of Moab will repent and be saved.

Yet will I bring again the captivity of Moab in the latter days, saith the LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.(Jeremiah 47:48)

Southern Jordan, Edom, or Mt Sier,  is slated for perhaps the grimmest judgment, it shall be rendered in places, utterly uninhabitable. Obadiah and Ezekiel 35 both direct their focus on Edom, as representative of the perpetual hatred against Israel they have nourished.

Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,

And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate.

I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:

Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.

Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.(Ezekiel 35:1-7)

Obadiah tells us that God remembered the help Edom gave to oppressors of Israel over the years, barring their escapes, rejoicing in their calamities, possessing their vacated lands, and in particular the temple mount.!

For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

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…”

    Perhaps you have forgotten the Gospel. Read the Bible again and try not to forget that Jesus came to bring an attitude of loving your enemy instead of racially profiling and applying prophecy where it very well may not belong.

    • billrandles says:

      I do love my enemies, which is why I ended the article with this exhortation to pray for the Muslim people,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…”

    • billrandles says:

      There is nothing racial at all about what I as saying, for I only believe in One race, the human race.I do believe I have an obligation to warn, according to the Word of God, those in danger. Was Isaiah being a racist when he gave prophecies against Babylon,Egypt and SYria? Of course not! If I have misapplied prophecy I rapy the LORD forgive me and show me, but I think not. Don’t take my Word for it, search the scriptures and see f these things be so.

  2. children of Israel says:

    Love thy brother *Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. (Genesis 27:41 then will I slay my brother Jacob.) Edom is apart of Moab and Ammon lineage. *Nehemiah 13:1-3 On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever; Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing. Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude. *John 7:49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. *Genesis 27:29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: *Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

    • says:

      You are right, Children of Israel. However in Christ, that penalty is paid and there is no more curse. In fact they will have become grafted into the tree of Israel.

    • scott0075 says:

      Very good stuff bro! Hey just a note about a small writing errror: you referenced Jeremiah 48:47 as 47:48

  3. Nnamdi says:

    u r right wen i read dat part of d bible fear griped me coz its so true. world war 3 is inevitable.

  4. Jeremiah says:

    Please, lets not forget what the Prophet Daniel prophesied: Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
    – Even though, ULTIMATELY, they will be destroyed, their judgment is NO different than all nations of disobedience, INCLUDING disobedient Israel. But during the tribulation, they will be spared the wrath of the anti-christ.
    The difference, I think, lies in them, being a muslim nation, willing participants (as with Israel)in the persecution of God’s saints who will not bow down to the anti-christ nor take the mark. Who hates true UNYIELDING Christians more than right wing Jews and Muslims, yet they will be united in this effort, as the anti-christ will pass himself off as the universal savior and will unite both through the Satanically induced hatred of God’s people.

  5. EnemytotheworldFriendofGod says:

    So are you saying that all who relocate to Northern Jordan will be spared of the anti-christ’s killing spree??

  6. 456Charlie says:

    I’m wrestling with information of those occupying Israel who profess to be Jews. For in fact, they are the gentile descendants of Ashknazi/Khazars. This has been proven genetically and documented they have no familial ties to the land Israel… which is what a true Jew is. Ashkenaz (sp?)is also in bible!!! This would bring better clarity to Rev 2:9 and Rev 3:9. where Jesus described those who say they are Jews, but do lie, and are of the synagogue of Satan, to paraphrase. If God’s people are scattered and will be gathered from captivity upon HIs return, how do these wealthy, fully armed and capable people who run the world fit this description? Presently, those in Israel remind me of the USA. Through false flags and the twisting of scripture of being “God’s chosen”, they spare no weaponry to shed innocent blood in the name of “terror”. The deception keeps on unfolding. Truly, the Lord is coming soon!!!

    • First of all the majority of Israeli Jews today are not Ashkenazi but the majority are Mizrachim, Sephardic, and Beta Israel Jews from the Middle East and Africa. This fact makes your entire argument pointless but let’s keep going

      Secondly, Numerous DNA and genetical studies have proven the Khazar THEORY to be wrong and that is why the great majority of Historians and Bible Scholars outright reject the theory. Khazar theory states that Ashkenazi Jews are descendants of Khazarians yet DNA evidence have shown that Ahskenzi Jews have a significant connection to Sephardic and Mizhrahim Jews and barely any connection to Russians or Turks of the Area where the Khazar empire existed. Again this is scientific evidence. How do you explain the similarities in DNA between Jews from all over the world?

      Thirdly, yes Ashkenaz was in the Bible. That’s precisely where Jews got that name from. Ashkenaz means Europe in Hebrew. That’s why Jews from Europe are called Ashkenazi Jews meaning European Jews. Duh!

      Fourthly, you take the New Testamant out of Context. Jesus was addressing the Church of Philiphia when he made those comments. He wasn’t addressing Jews. Try actually reading it

  7. rosa perry says:

    Dear God 456charlie. There is a never ending parade of bleeding heart misfits who cannot wait to find any outlet to spew your venom. “So they spare no weaponry to shed innocent blood in the name of terror.” OK mister let me see you offer your head or the lives of your love ones to these ungodly terrorists, then I can give you a 2 on your opinions. So in the interim, keep writing trash, it has been helpful in deterring any untoward reactions from your caliber of “THE FAITHFUL’ ALSO get off America’s back. You may be riding a tiger which will unexpectedly turn and rend you to pieces. Do you get the picture?

  8. I am a deep Christian but some of these post are unsettling and devoid of the greatest commandment……….love. Just sad and hard to comprehend.

  9. Floyce Blocker says:

    Great article! I agree with your ending paragraph, salvation is for all who believe in Jesus Christ Son Of God and put their faith in Christ alone for forgiveness of their sin. Salvation, first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. We should pray for all unbelievers to to put their faith and trust in the true Messiah and receive salvation. It is the will of God for all to be saved. We are all one in Christ.

  10. Ed harv says:

    Will the real Israel please stand up! Since the beginning of your captivity the world has been in turmoil, your God scattered you all over the planet, had you taken by ships into every nation under the heavens, made to serve hard bondage, hidden in prison houses and slaughtered like sheep and no one takes it to heart. Your land is parted and fought over by gentiles who claim they are the people of the bible, while you lie in ruin, hidden and blinded until the time of the end. Your Redeemer is soon to return with fierce vengeance to mete out judgment upon the nations and all those who wronged you. Won’t they be surprised when the King of Glory stand with you by His side and say “The least of these my brothers”. It’s not what think or what you’ve been told people, know the truth and be made free!

    • Brigitte Rosales says:

      Thats so beautiful. You made me cry. …and so,
      “Therefore hear this, you afflicted one, made drunk but not with wine. This is what your Sovereign LORD says, your God who defends his people; ‘See, I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of my wrath, you will never drink again. I will put it into the hands of your tormentors, who said to you, “Fall prostrate that we may walk over you.” And you made your back like the ground, like a street to be walked over.’ Isaiah 51:21

  11. nancynorthrup says:

    You have a typo. The paragraph that begins: Fear, and the pit, and the snare… is Jer. 48:43-44, NOT Jer. 47. There are only 7 verses in Jer. 47.

    Also, same thing with the paragraph that begins: “Yet I will bring again…” That should also be Jer. 48.

  12. jtstryffeler says:

    I think the angry comments are because you used scripture to make a not so pleasant point about how shall I say it, ancient enemies of Israel. Awake church of Jesus. The scripture is truth. Even if you don’t understand the words. The hatred of Isreal is a spiritual disorder, demonicaly powered. If my family spent 2000 years in Sudan, my Irish family would have dark skin. So go the Jews. They look like where they been. Shalom to everyone.

  13. jtstryffeler says:

    PS great article.

  14. Leon says:

    Hi Pastor Bill, I found your article helpful. Thanks for taking the time to write it. The first Apostles did not understand many of the prophecies concerning Jesus until after his resurrection. I think the same is true for prophecies concerning the end times. We will look back after the Lord’s return and see how perfectly everything was foretold. God Bless You! And all those that are trying to better understand the word of God. I also have a blog that some might find helpful.

  15. Livinglife says:

    In the end we shall see the truth, and the truth shall set us free!

    Solomom said: ” I am black and I am beautiful, daughters of Jerusalem”.

    • No way says:

      That wasn’t Solomon that was the Shulamite woman. If you notice it says like the tents of (Kedar) like the curtains of (Solomon). Why would Solomon say he is black like his own curtains. What does this have to do with this article anyway.

  19. Arlene says:

    Thank you for writing. And those who read, please stand with Israel. Strife accomplishes nothing except except turmoil in the one expressing it or truly trying to cause it. Those going against Israel ….. this is just not a good thing; be blessed, stand with Israel.

    • Brigitte Rosales says:

      The reason I ask is that, when I was a new Christian, I tended to think of things in the physical. A physical Israel, a physical Jerusalem, a physical manifestation of Christ…

      But the more spiritual my walk becomes (and I have far to go), the more I think of things in the spiritual. A spiritual Israel, a spiritual New Jerusalem, a spiritual manifestation of the kingdom of God within me. And these are the foundations of the revealing that is to come..”Christ in you, the hope of glory”. So we are not so much praying for the peace or power of a physical nation (God is at work!), but the perfection of the body of Christ, that Israel of God. We groan along with all creation for the manifestation of the Sons of God.
      Yes LORD…we wait for you! Your glory and renown are the desire of our heart.

      • Arlene says:

        Just a note — Pray for the true peace of Israel …. the peace Jesus died to give them.
