Is Psalm 83 Occurring Today? Where is Israel?
Sunday January 06, 2019
Psalm 83 KJV 1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
Psalm 83:1-4 says the enemies of Israel have one plan, to destroy them as a nation and remove them from memory. There are different thoughts on whether this is past or future but the articles make it obvious it is in the now. At this present time the enemies of Israel are working to destroy her. These people who have become apart of America's government have big dreams and expectations but what will actually happen.
In Zechariah 9 we find God will destroy all those who come to destroy Israel. In Zechariah 12 Israel and Jerusalem are attacked and God destroys all the nations coming against them. Ezekiel 38:18-23 nations come against Israel and God destroys them all. These scriptures and others make 2 things clear:
- God knows and is Sovereign
- think as you will, anyone who comes to destroy Israel will meet their fate at the hand of God.
What is the purpose?
Ezekiel 38:23 KJV 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.
The last days will be filled with unknown acts of violence and destruction as God's judgments are sent to the earth.
What does God want now?
Isaiah 55: 7 KJV Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Revelation 22:17 KJV And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Will you come and drink of the Living Water, Jesus the Christ, the Son of God?
