The Roots Of The Mideast Conflict
What Believers Need To Know
Why Americans Need To Prepare
The hostilities experienced in the Middle East between the Arabs and Jews go back nearly 4,000 years to God’s covenant with Abraham. Due to the inherent blessings contained within this covenant, the infamous Bible characters Hagar, Ishmael, Esau, Moab, Ammon, and Amalak coveted the rich contents of this covenant. They came to hate the Hebrews, who were heirs of this blessed covenant. Ultimately, they conceived a cleverly disguised religious package giving it license to unleash itself in a holy war. The Jihad, as it is often labeled, presently underway in the Middle East, finds its justification in Islam, but its roots are in this longstanding hatred. There is a spiritual nature to this conflict. When diplomacy fails, wars begin, and diplomacy has failed. Psalm 83 (written by Asaph, King David’s worship leader) will resolve the Israeli Arab conflict. Asaph was also a prophet and a seer. Psalm 83 tells us that the nations around Israel will form a confederacy against them, and their goal is to destroy Israel. This Psalm refers to the Edomites, Ammonites, Amalakites and Assyrians. Isis could also be part of Psalm 83. Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, which means one who wrestles with God and prevails. Esau fathered the Edomites in southern Jordan. Olam Ebah Ancient Hatred – Perpetual Enmity. This is a hostility that will not go away. The Edomites originated this hatred, referred to in Ezekiel 35:5. The Edomites felt cheated in the Abrahamic Covenant. Genesis 12:1-3 Abraham was promised an innumerable amount of descendants.

Esau Despised God’s Plan of Redemption for Man
The perpetual enmity between Edom and Israel is mentioned again in Numbers 20:20-21. Jeremiah and Obadiah prophesied that Edom would be despised among men and small among the nations.
Islam renews the ancient hatred of Israel. Israel is born as a nation on May 14, 1948. The Arabs fight them immediately. The Arabs fight them again in June, 1967. The third transgression was the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Perhaps the fourth and final transgression will be in Psalm 83. Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran. Zechariah 12:2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.” Israel will have initial success against their enemies.
Psalm 83 Confederacy-
The eternal blessings come through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, leading up to the Son of the Highest, Jesus Christ, and in His kingdom there will be no end.
The Abrahamic Covenant will complete God’s plan for the redemption of man.
