Now I’m going to go way out on a limb with all this, but it represents my understanding, after much prayer and study. I am not claiming ‘thus saith the Lord’. I am not a prophet–just one who is curious. Consider it PRAYERFULLY and compare it with the Scriptures, and what you already know.

What I see coming is what I’ve BEEN seeing: a Russian/Chinese/Islamic coalition attacking America (I had previously believed this would be the Ezekiel 38 war, but I am no longer certain of that).

I believe that the Psalms 83 and Zechariah 12 wars are the same. (The Zechariah 14 war will be several years later, when The Antichrist enters Jerusalem and the temple.)  These are the nations that Psalms 83 says will attack Israel together:

  • Edom = Palestinians and Southern Jordanians
  • Ishmaelites = Saudis, Arabs
  • Moab = Palestinians and Central Jordanians
  • Hagarenes = Egyptians
  • Gebal = Hezbollah, Lebanese
  • Ammon = Palestinians
  • Amalek = Arabs of Sinai Peninsula
  • Philistines = Hamas of Gaza Strip
  • Tyre = Hezbollah, Southern Lebanese
  • Assur = Syrians and Northern Iraqis

God will destroy those nations that come against Israel, and she will enlarge her borders. Then all her children will come home (from all 12 tribes will return), and the temple will be rebuilt.

Isaiah 13-26 is a timeline. It spells out the doom of all the Psalms 83 nations that come against Israel. (Chapters 25-26 speak of the return of Christ, the resurrection of the dead, and the wrath of God–confirming it as a timeline.) Interwoven throughout (chapter 13, 21:9, and perhaps 23, is the fall of Babylon (America). This correlates with another timeline of sorts: Ezekiel 33-48.

That passage begins with the watchmen (who are calling out a warning right now), then God’s anger at the shepherds who have not cared for His sheep, Him seeking out His flock (of all twelve tribes) and gathering them to the mountains of Israel (correlating with Rev. 12:6, 14), then the Psalms 83 war. (There is time overlap in these chapters.)

Ezekiel 37 describes the complete reunification of all of Israel. The chapter is ‘layered’. It speaks of all the tribes returning to the land of Israel (hasn’t happened yet) and also of when the resurrection takes place. Chapters 38-39 speak of the God/Magog war, which appears (based on the timeline) to be the war of Armageddon. Chapters 40-48 describe the time of the Millennium. That chapters 40-48 describe the time after the Lord’s return, is confirmed by Ez. 47:12. The sequence of the entire passage confirms it to be another timeline.

‘And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. ‘ (Ez. 47:12)

(Ezekiel 47:12 echoes Revelation 22:2.)

But back to America: Nahum 2 & 3, Isaiah 13, 21:9, and perhaps 23, and Revelation 18.

The ultimate fall of the Antichrist, who comes forth from America, is detailed in Isaiah 14. Note verses 15-20, concerning him:

‘Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, [and] consider thee, [saying, Is] this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; [That] made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; [that] opened not the house of his prisoners?

All the kings of the nations, [even] all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, [and as] the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because THOU HAST DESTROYED THY LAND, [AND] SLAIN THY PEOPLE: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.’

I believe history will say of Obama, that he accomplished this in America:

‘He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do [that] which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall SCATTER AMONG THEM THE PREY, AND SPOIL, AND RICHES: [yea], and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.’ (Daniel 11:24)

and this:

‘Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a STRANGE GOD, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and he shall CAUSE THEM TO RULE OVER MANY, and SHALL DIVIDE THE LAND FOR GAIN.’ (Daniel 11:39)

Daniel 11:21-45 describes The Antichrist twice: verses 21-35 and verses 36-45.

I believe he is doing much behind the scenes, and has divided the people and the land between those who will help him to take down America. He has already given 7 (I think that’s the right number) Alaskan Islands to the Russians.

I believe he has made an alliance with, or is aiding, the Psalms 83 nations to destroy Israel, while counting on his Russian/Chinese/Islamic allies to simultaneously help him subdue America. I believe they will betray him though, by going beyond his agenda for America, to completely destroy it. (The fatal head wound of North America? One of 7 continents?)

Thus, while he is preoccupied with helping his Psalms 83 allies against Israel, his Russian/Chinese/Islamic allies will destroy America (Babylon). Daniel 11:44 will take place:

‘But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth WITH GREAT FURY TO DESTROY, AND UTTERLY TO MAKE AWAY MANY.’

I suspect he will launch a nuclear attack against them, where they are presently headquartered: in Syria. Thus fulfilling Isaiah 17:1

‘The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.’

(Is Zechariah 14:21 another hint as to the identitiy of the one who will set himself up in the temple and declare that he is God (The Antichrist)?

‘Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be NO MORE THE CANAANITE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD OF HOSTS.’)

(Interesting note: Isaiah 23:13 seems to refer to Nimrod. Is this a clue that there is a connection between Nimrod and the Antichrist?)

Again, I’m going way out on a limb here, but this is where my studies have led thus far.

WHAT IF  

America were the largest of the ’10 missing tribes’

and the Antichrist was its leader

and he was working, behind the scenes w/ others to accomplish the Psalms 83 war* against the modern nation of ‘Israel’?

And what if,

in the midst of that attack,

his (personal, secret) allies attacked his homeland–(the Ezekiel 38 war**)?

Is it possible that this would happen?:

‘But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.’  (Daniel 11:44)

Is it possible that a narcissistic man, with power over a nuclear arsenal, who had been betrayed . . . might use those nukes to retaliate?

And what if the base of his enemies’ joint operation was in . . . Syria?  Could this be the result?

‘The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.’  (Isaiah 17:1)

By the way, I recently heard that Russia and China ARE moving into Syria to help them . . . (Gog and Gomer).

As the ‘fourth beast’ world empire rises, we will probably see several nations in the news:

  1. Russia–having invaded South Ossetia, Georgia, and Abkhazia
  2. United Kingdom/Great Britain–something related to the Olympics?
  3. India–unknown reason

If this scenario is correct, the Mark of the Beast could be rolled out soon.  After the Antichrist  ‘goes forth with great fury to destroy and utterly make away many’, the next thing he does is:

‘And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain . . . ‘  (Daniel 11:45)

This is where Revelation 13 picks up the story, and his three and a half year reign begins, from Jerusalem.

One more thing . . . the attack on his homeland (that presumably destroys Washington DC–and I believe also includes the destruction of NYC  [see Revelation 18]) would be what the Bible calls the ‘head’ that was ‘wounded to death’ and healed.

‘And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’  (Revelation 13:3)

The destruction would not be complete however, because God WILL be glorified amongst the heathen, because of his response to the attack:

‘there shall be a great shaking in the land . . . and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.  And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.’  (Ezekiel 38:19-23)

(All of this is a matter of opinion and speculation.   Consider it prayerfully.   It could be all wrong, or partly wrong.  My belief, until now, has been that the Ezekiel 38 war would not take place until the end of the Tribulation.  I see this as an alternate possibility.)

**Ezekiel 38 players:

From the North:

  • Magog = Russia
  • Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah = Turkey

Gog = a man, or spirit/principality, that has authority over Russia and Turkey.  He will be at the head of this coalition.
