Edom, Moab, & Ammon During the End Times

The fate of Moab, Ammon, and Edom is an end time Bible prophecy topic that a lot of people tend to overlook.

Moab, Ammon, and Edom, located in Jordan, will have an important role to play in the future. In this article, I will give an overview of what will happen to Moab, Ammon, and Edom during the end times.

A Place of Refuge

The Antichrist will attack many places in the Mideast. However, Daniel 11:41 suggests that the Edom, Moab, and Ammon will escape the worst of his attacks:

“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.” (Daniel 11:41)

Edom, Moab, and Ammon will escape the Antichrist’s attack because there will be some from Israel who will seek refuge at these locations.

Revelation 12 describes a woman (the remnant of Israel) finding refuge in an area that corresponds to Edom, Moab, and Ammon. The refugees will find safety from the dragon’s (Satan’s) attack:

“(13) And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. (14) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (15) And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. (16) And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” (Revelation 12:13-16)

The Gentiles Attack Edom

Despite being spared by the Antichrist, Edom will be attacked by another Gentile force (unaffiliated with Antichrist) near the end of the tribulation.

Obadiah describes the attack where Edom’s allies will betray them:

“(1) The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord God concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the Lord, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle. (2) Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised. […] (7) All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee, and prevailed against thee; they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee: there is none understanding in him.” (Obadiah 1:1-2, 7)

Interestingly, Psalm 83:6-8 links Edom to an alliance of nations in Psalm 83:6-8. The thrust of the Psalm 83 attack is against the “hidden ones”, who I believe are a remnant of Israel seeking refuge.

Israel Attacks

Israel vs Edom, Moab, and Ammon

The Bible indicates that Israel will destroy Edom, Moab, and Ammon in the future.

Numbers 24:17-19 is a Messianic prophecy that predicts that the Messiah (Christ) will lead Israel’s effort to destroy Moab and take over Edom:

“(17) I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. (18) And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly. (19) Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.” (Numbers 24:17-19)

Similarly, Zephaniah 2:8-9 promises that God will destroy Moab and Ammon and that the remnant of Israel will take over their lands in the future:

“(8) I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. (9) Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.” (Zephaniah 2:8-9)

There’s no doubt that Edom, Moab, and Ammon will be dealt with harshly in the future. However, a key question is “when will Israel deal with Edom, Moab, and Ammon?”

When Will Israel Attack?

The search for an answer begins with Ezekiel 35. Ezekiel 35:9, 14-15 pinpoints the ultimate destruction of Edom at the time when the “whole earth rejoiceth”.

“(9) I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD… (14) Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate. (15) As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 35:9, 14-15)

I searched all over the Bible for a passage that hints at the specific time when the world will rejoice. If we can find the time when the “whole earth rejoiceth” we will know when Edom, Moab, and Ammon will meet their demise.

Isaiah 14:5-8

Isaiah 14:5-8 suggests that the whole earth will “break forth into singing” or rejoice after the “Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers”:

“(5) The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. (6) He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth. (7) The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing. (8) Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.” (Isaiah 14:5-8)

In other words, the world will rejoice after evil’s defeat at the events of Armageddon. The Edomites, the Ammonites, and the Moabites won’t rejoice since the remnant of Israel will destroy them.

Ezekiel 39:10

Ezekiel 39:10 also indicates that Israel will deal with Moab, Ammon, and Edom after the events of Armageddon.

  • The verse tells us that Israel will “spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them” as they clean up the land after Armageddon.

“(8) Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. (9) And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: (10) So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 39:8-10)

Isaiah 11:14

Finally, Isaiah 11:14, which is part of a passage relating to the post-Armageddon period, mentions that Israel shall spoil those located east of them: Edom, Moab, and Ammon:

“But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.” (Isaiah 11:14)

Other verses or chapters that likely deal with the destruction of Edom, Moab, and/or Ammon include:

  • Isaiah 63:1-6
  • Habakkuk 3
  • Joel 3:19
  • Isaiah 34:6-17
  • Jeremiah 25
  • Lamentations 4:22
  • Jeremiah 49:1-6
  • Ezekiel 25

Israel vs. the Philistines

Isaiah 11:14 tells us that Israel shall “fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines”:

“But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.” (Isaiah 11:14)

What does “Fly upon the shoulders” mean? Habakkuk 1:18 and other verses may help us understand what it means.

Habakkuk 1:18 describes an aggressor flying upon its enemies like an eagle who swoops down to consume its prey:

“Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.” (Habakkuk 1:8)

Similarly, Jeremiah 48:40 and Jeremiah 49:22 describe an aggressor flying like an eagle to destroy Edom and Moab:

“For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab.” (Jeremiah 48:40)

“Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.” (Jeremiah 49:22)

With these verses in mind, “fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines” likely means that Israel will overwhelm the Philistines with military force. This leads to a key question:

  • “Will Israel attack the Philistines at the same time they attack the Ammonites, the Edomites, and the Moabites?

Falling Together

The Bible indicates that Israel will attack the Philistines at the same time they attack Ammon, Edom, and Moab.

For instance, Isaiah 11:14’s grouping of the Philistines with Ammon, Edom, and Moab suggests that these nations may fall at the same time:

“But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.” (Isaiah 11:14)

Also, Obadiah 1:19 suggests that Israel will possess the “plain of the Philistines” at the same time they will possess the mount of Esau, which is in Bozrah (Edom):

“And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.” (Obadiah 1:19)

Zephaniah 2 also describes the remnant of Israel taking possession of the land of the Philistines:

“(5) Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. (6) And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. (7) And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.” (Zephaniah 2:5-7)

Similarly, the land of the Philistines is grouped with Moab and Edom in a Psalms passage where the Lord describes His dominance over these peoples:

“(6) God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. (7) Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; (8) Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.” (Psalm 60:6-8)

Finally, other verses or chapters that relate the Philistines’ demise to the demise of the Ammonites, Edomites, and/or Moabites are:

  • Zephaniah 2
  • Ezekiel 25
  • Amos 1
  • Amos 2

Conclusion

Edom, Moab, and Ammon will serve as a relatively safe place for some to hide at during the tribulation. However, these locations will not be immune to God’s judgment. Israel will devastate these areas after the events of Armageddon.

  1. Love you Bro. keep up the good work , I was born in 1939 so I’m not the last generation . But I know He [Yashua] is coming home . My kids and there kids are. Shalom Gerald Wendell Radford of the Zerah tribe P.S. we know the season , not the DAY or the Hr. Keep PRAYING .

  2. Hey Wayne good article. I found your sight while searching for insight on Edom. The rabbi’s believe it refers to the Christians. The two house people think it’s the Jews and to round it off the black Hebrew think it refers to white people. All these rather fanciful interpretations have one thing in common they alligorize the scripture. I see that you have all three of these allegorical. Interpretations represented in your comments. Keep up the good work.

  3. Yes,you are right , that an heathen miltary force,not associated with the Antichrist ,will attack Ammon,Edom and moab. This miltary force are Men from the East, verified by Ezekiel 25:1-17 especially verses 4 and 10 that identify “Men from the East” who are to take “possession” of ammon,edom and moab.

  4. Here are my first thoughts on this. Maybe Edom, Moab a d Ammon joins up with the Antichrist, take the mark and such, believe he is the real christ and that is why they escape him. However I believe they will be consumed by the fire that comes down from God out if heaven in Rev 20:9.

  5. If Donald Trump is the antichrist, and I believe that he is, then Edom, Moab and Ammon escaping from him, is particularly relevant because these are all GOLF RELATED clubs/organisation, presumably ones that he has NOT taken over!

    They therefore have nothing to do with the COUNTRIES of the same name!

    Does the prophecy now make more sense?

  6. Wayne my thoughts on this is as such, the destruction you speak of regarding Edom, Moab, and Ammon happens at the very end upon the return of our Lord and Savior Yashaya Christ, who most ignorantly call Jesus, but that is not his name because there where no letter J’s at that time. Christ will bring the destruction to Jordan, because the Children of Israel will be there and the Powers that be will think and evil thought to come up against them there and Christ will return to protect His chosen. I will provide the scriptures and I would love to hear your thoughts on this…

    Num 24:16-20: (16) He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: (17) I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. (18) And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly. (19) Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city. (20) And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever.

    In verse 17 that sceptre and star is Christ, He will take dont Moab and Edom … these verses precepts to Isaiah 63 ( the WHole Chapter). Please read..

    This next verse show that the enemies against the Children of Israel will be in Jordan (the Wilderness) and the Powers that be will think to come up against them….This will cause Isaiah 63 and Num 24:16-20 to come to pass…

    Eze 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
    Eze 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
    Eze 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
    Eze 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
    Eze 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
    Eze 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
    Eze 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
    Eze 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
    Eze 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
    Eze 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
    Eze 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.
    Eze 38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
    Eze 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, 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.

    This why I myself and others are migrating to Jordan. The destruction of America is soon to come. The Children of Israel are commanded to Come out of Babylon …Hence Reveleation 18:4

    Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on this is well……You should be leaving America as soon as Possible!
    Thanks for the Article….

  7. i had this:

    Edom is from Essau, who is without blessing, instead Jacob recieves the blessing.

    Moabites and Ammonites are Lot’s offspring, both stem from incest with Lot’s daughters (in a sense Lot was robbed of ‘decency’)

    Difference between Edom and Moab & Ammon:

    – Edom’s blessing is stolen and birthright sold. Blessing indeed stolen by trickery (Zion’s controversy?), but birthright sold…
    – Moab&Amman’s dignity is stolen, but no birthright sold (their father was ‘made drunk’ and ‘raped’… he wasn’t actively participating in this ‘apostasy’

  8. Very interesting. I have been looking into the profoundness of these verses as well because this suggests a physical safe haven for the children of the woman. Deuteronomy 4:41-43 details the names of the initial cities of refuge and I have come to find out today that there are three other cities to the west of the Jordan River. However, I’m specifically interested in the three mentioned in these verses because they correlate with the location of Moab, Edom, and Ammon. I would really like to pinpoint specifically where we need to journey to (two wings of the great eagle, i.e. plane Revelation 12:14).

    • From overhead view the geography north to south and facing west reveals a great eagle with head in the dead sea and feet below exactly a an eagle can be superimpoed upon its appearance with wings outspread!!! See satellite image.

  9. Wayne….it is a great encouragement to me to see someone of your intelligence (3 degrees) interested in Bible Prophecy and handling the Scriptures with such Biblical study and knowledge. There are not many, today, that take the time or have the ability to search out the deep things of God. You have encouraged and blessed me today, my brother.

  10. Updated thoughts… I believe there will be a significant Gentile military force that will oppose the Antichrist eventually, so I can now easily see Edom, Moab, and Ammon subject to attack. I believe this military force will attack Edom, Moab, and Ammon (Obadiah suggests this attack will be an act of betrayal against Edom). The attack will likely come near the end of the 1260th day that the woman from Revelation 12 hides in the wilderness.

  11. Wayne,
    I am just reading your article and so now I am responding a year later….I wonder if your thoughts on this matter have changed?
    I believe your question is a relevant one and I will tell you why.Daniel does says in 11:41 that these cities will escape out of the antichrist’s hand…meaning reign or control. But I believe your assertion is right on point. Control and destruction are not the same thing. Is there a safe haven here for believers and a military force that is striking against the anti-christ’s power? That would be within reason, right?
    BUT, let me share something which the Lord just revealed to me, and here is where your point becomes relevant:
    Deu 2:5 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir to Esau for a possession.(Mount Seir was Edomite territory)
    Deu 2:9 And the LORD said to me, Do not distress the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give you of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar to the children of Lot for a possession
    Deu 2:19 And when you come near facing the children of Ammon, do not distress them, nor meddle with them: for I will not give you of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it to the children of Lot for a possession.
    I think, if you take into account that in order for the Jews to place a man on the “Seat of David”, then reasoning (especially spiritual) would dictate that the Anti-Christ must be of Jewish descent, because no one else would the Jews even consider placing on the throne since the messiah that they are looking for is of the house of David(and since the devil tries to mimic all that God has done, this, too, would be within spiritual reasoning. The Christ is of the House of David, so it makes sense that the devil would have his person come from Jewish blood as well).
    God has given revelation, for those of us who desire eyes that see, that He has placed protection on them from the endtimes conquest from the anti-christ (Jews)
    who he has forbidden to militarily conquer. This is not anti semitism, but it IS biblical reasoning. We know God has demanded the Jews not touch theses territories, and according to Daniel, in the last days,they are not touched. They must have been conquered previously, so this would indeed make Daniel’s vision one of last days. Why are they not conquered? Because God has said that they shall be left alone by the Jews. So, although Daniel says that they will not be ruled by him, it does not spare them from fallout.

    • From overhead view the geography north to south and facing west reveals a great eagle with head in the dead sea and feet below exactly a an eagle can be superimpoed upon its appearance with wings outspread!!! See satellite image.

    • Solomon did rule in Edom, and his Song is set partially in Petra. And didn’t an Israeli king rule Ammon for a short time? So some has already happened. I totally agree with you, Jeremiah. But if a king does come from the east it might have been Khubla Khan, who is memorialized at the Petra Museum – or even perhaps a future Chinese army. Also, Aqaba of Edom is the northernmost border of the new digital city of Neom, which may play into the picture of it all and the king attempting to overspread his tent between the seas & beside the holy mountain.

  12. “LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.”
    Edom is the US – endtimes chaldeans – mystery Babylon.
    http://dreamingofmoshiach.blogspot.no/2008/05/zohar-hakadosh-edom-is-usa.html
    e Zohar HaKadosh (זוהר שמות ח, א-ב) write that a big event will take place in a central city, Roma, and 3 towers will collapse on the very same day in Romi.

    …יזדעזעון כל בני עלמא, ויתחשך שמשא בפלגות יומא, כמא דאתחשך יומא דאתחרב בי מקדשא, עד דלא יתחזון שמיא וארעא. ויתער חד קלא ברעם וזיקין ויתחלחל ארעא מההוא קלא וכמה חילין ומשריין ימותון מניה. וההוא יומא ממש יתער בקרתא רבתא חד שלהובא דאשא בההוא קלא דיתער בכל עלמא. ויוקיד כמה מגדלין וכמה היכלין וכמה מגדלין יפלון.. וכמה פרדשכי יפלון בההוא יומא. וכלהו יתכנשון עליה לביש. וכל בני עלמא לא יכלין לאשתזבא.
    These towers are located in a city, in a predominantly xtian country. The collapse of the tall towers will be accompanied by a thunder-like sound and tremendeous fire. The fall will be so massive and it will darken the entire area before noon, and daytime will be transformed into night and nothing will be visible. The loss of life will be enormous and people from all walks of life will perish. People will believe that they will never survive the imminent disasters.
    2,000 years ago, Roma was the central city of the Edom empire. She reincarnated and today, it’s not difficult to identify that the central city Roma is New York City in America.

    Now that we understand that Roma is NYC, where the UN building is located, we can understand the following Zohar:

    כל מלכי עלמא יתכנשון לגו קרתא רבתא דרומי
    All the kings of the world shall assemble in the great city of Rome (in the UN).

  13. Joel 2:20, Ezekiel 38:21, and Daniel 11:44-45 all fit this same pattern. He is drawn away from his main interests and appears to remain occupied until he is destroyed at armageddon.

    Joel 2:20
    “I will remove the northerner far from you,

    and drive him into a parched and desolate land,

    his vanguard into the eastern sea,

    and his rear guard into the western sea;

    the stench and foul smell of him will rise,

    for he has done great things.”

    Ezekiel 38:21-22
    “I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

    With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.”

    Daniel 11:44-45
    “But news from the east and the north shall alarm him, and he shall go out with great fury to destroy and devote many to destruction.

    And he shall pitch his palatial tents between the sea and the glorious holy mountain. Yet he shall come to his end, with none to help him.”

  14. When the final battle of Armageddon occurs it will involve 4 sectors or geographic regions. 1st the king of the south will attack the anti Christ. This I believe to be a unified coalition of nations from Africa. We notice that the attack is not given much description and seems to be the least powerful of the forces in play. This would be in proper standing with the military and economic powers of the continent of Africa.
    Next we read that the king of the north attacks the Antichrist. Now we have more descriptions of the kind of attack and the methods used. They are said to be chariots, soldiers and a vast navy. I believe that is king of the north is summed up in one word, Russia. They are known to have a competent navy with subs, ships ect. The Russian military is also equipped with tanks in abundance.
    Finally the force with the greatest power to wield is introduced. It is the “Kings of the East” . We read that the river Euphrates is actually dried up to prepare the way for this group of nations which will be comprised of China, India, Japan, The Koreans, Tiawan, Indonisia, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thialand, Phillipines, Mongolia ect…
    I believe that the reason the nations listed as Edomite, Moab, and Ammon escape is because of the limited military and economic capabilities that the Antichrist will posses. Having his military engaged by these three opposing forces which come from three dirrections will limit his ability to extend dominance or this region. We can see that the field of armegido will be the limit of how far he can extend himself thus allowing the present day nation of Jordan or demo, moab, and Ammon to escape the rule of the Antichrist. The military force coming from the east will not be concerned with the regions and will not try to controll them as they will be heading toward armegedon.

    • To Jason:” The coming of the Bear!” (This is one day before the Inauguration of our new President, Donald Trump.) Little do we know, that in Russia, the local populations, are now calling Him; Your Majesty? It’s almost like they are bowing down to his ascension to the throne in Russia, while being our president in United States. There’s a total disconnect with reality concerning, (Donald) Trump, I believe here and there. They are saying he has a genius for charming the most ruthless nations and their rulers. And according to Putin himself, The Donald, can do no harm. Donald wants to tear up NATO, tear up the IRAQ nuclear curtailments, belittle rulers in Europe, and exploit any nation south of Russia. Trump is giving the feeling that a Police state is coming, or about to appear, to all of them. This is exactly how the Bear of the North will come down, as a sweeping horde. And that’s the way the news is reporting it. Please Christian’s, we have a lot to look at and ponder and take action, if truly this is happening. Jn

    • If the antichrist turns out to be a Muslim, obviously he would attempt to spare a Muslin nation such as Jordan. This would not stop a western power from destroying them, though. The United States and a coalition of Western nations could easily turn them into “pitch”!

        • The reason why Moab (southern Syria,northern Jordan), Ammon (Jordan), and Edom (Russia), are so called “not attacked by the anti-christ” is because they are spiritually in bed with him,….on his side doing his bidding now and then. Heathen means “unbelievers” which Russia is arthritic communism, and the others either are or will become ….very soon for Jordan…..radical Islamic states which are most definitely heathen. Gentile means in Hebtew…ethnos….ethnic people’s of the world….from the 6th Day creation. And you don’t even know that in 2Peter….one day with the Lord is as a 1000 years ( on Earth), and a 1000 years as one day….the Lord’s Day is most definitely 1000 years long. GP in the clouds ….for you….does not mean go preach….it means go plow…..start studying…..and fast…..we’re only months away from those heathen armies in Syria,….Russia, Iran, communist China, etc……turning against Israel…..overwhelming her…..surrounding Jerusalem. ….and Johnny on the spot…..here comes satan as anti (instead of christ)….looking like Jesus…..but with the voice of the dragon twisting the truth……deceiving the whole world…..to worship the one world system with him as it’s fake jesus leader….with the fallen angels…..fortunately for the elects sake….only 5 months…..the same period as his radical Islam locust army…..between this coming May to September. …watch Jerusalem. ….where the son of perdition will sit….2Thess2….get studying….get “SEALED”….GET READY…..THE &\*% IS ABOUT TO HIT THE FAN!!!

          • OMG you REALLY think gentiles are just ethnic?!…….. Oh my god……. oh my dear, dear.. god….. You should really look up *LEPROSY* in the bible, a.k.a. *Vitiligo*, *Albino*. Pretty much ALL white heathens will be tricked by the “new world order” (the nations leaders). Whoever shows up as THE anti-Christ will be a milky white, and all these poor, weak minded, heathen, not EVEN THINKING ABOUT GOD IN THEIR LIVES will be tricked into supporting the mass killing of *ETHNIC PEOPLE*.. BECAUSE THE ANTI-CHRIST… WHO EVERYONE BELIEVES IS CHRIST, HAS NOW SAID TO THE WORLD THAT:-> “ETHNIC PEOPLE REALLY ARE CURSED AND MUST BE WIPED OFF THE PLANET”…… SAID FROM A MAN PERFORMING FALSE MIRACLES TO SWAY THE PEOPLES SENSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. THOSE ETHNIC PEOPLE BEING KILLED ARE GODS CHOSEN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!! YOU FUCKING JELLY BRAINED IDIOTS!!!!!!!!! THE LORDS BLOODLINE!!!!!!!!! THIS WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU’RE TO WEAK… YOU CAN’T USE SENSE.. SENSIBILITY TELLS YOU NOT TO KILL!!!!! I MEAN “THOUGH SHALL NOT MURDER”!!!!! RIGHT????!!!!!! DO NOT FALL FOR RACISM…. IT *WILL* COST YOU ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE, FOR YOUR TRANSGRESSION AGAINST THE LORDS LAWS!!!!!!!!!!! I’M TRYING TO WARN WHOEVER SEES THIS!!!!!!

          • Now if the LORD is dark skinned, what is the FATHER?

            Cain = Esau + Edomites = Edom = white people = Roman empire descendants replaced the old images, and knowledge with THEIR OWN.

            1 Maccabees 3:48
            “And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.

            2 Thessalonians 2:4
            “Who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God”
            (who did that? The pope? The Vatican?) “I’m white = God’s white”.. *um …I don’t think so*!->
            Revelation 1:14-15
            “His head and his hairs were white like *wool*, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
            15 And *his feet like unto fine brass*, *as if they BURNED in a furnace*; and his voice as the sound of many waters”
            Daniel 10:6
            His body also [was] like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and *his arms and his feet like in color to polished brass*, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude”

            Job 9:24
            “*The earth is given into the hand of the wicked*: he *covereth the faces of the judges* thereof; if not, where, and who is he?”
            (who controls the world today? who?????!!!!!!!! Don’t be a coward)
            NO! EVEN YOU ALL WHO PUSH FALSE PERVERSE RELIGIONS WITHOUT KNOWING YOU’RE DOING IT…*WE WILL NOT LET YOU GET AWAY WITH IT!!!!!!!*

          • LOOK! Who might have done THAT?
            Why is God putting it there in the book? Why?
            Daniel 7:25
            “He shall speak words against the Most High,
            and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
            and shall *think to change the times and the law*;
            *and they shall be given into his hand*
            for a time, times, and half a time.

            But God, through his Son said to us early on:
            Matthew 5:17-18
            “Do not think(*NOT EVEN THINK*) that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets*; *I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them*. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law *until all is accomplished*”

            1 John 3:4
            “Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.”

            YOU’D BETTER WAKE UP BITCH!!!!!!!!
            Ecclesiastes 7:7
            “Surely oppression maketh a wise man MAD; and a gift destroyeth the heart”
            Ephesians 4:26
            “BE ANGRY and *do not sin*; do not let the sun go down on your anger”

        • EZEKIEL 31 tells us that tashur (Satan) was made the full pattern, full of beauty….we’re all created in the image of God to some degree….he (Satan) was the “full” pattern….Rev13….he (satan,ant-christ) looks like the Lamb of God. The Lamb of God is Jesus Christ,…who is identified in Isaiah9 as the Everlasting Father, Price of Peace, Mighty Counselor, Mighty God,…..He’s the Lord God Almighty. And satan looks just like Him! All the images of Jesus is what satan looks like….together with his supernatural angelic body and abilities. …and those of the fallen angels….the 1st tribulation is of anti-christ….it’s a time of deception…..”let no man deceive you”…..1st warning in all 4 gospels as to the events ,….the 6 trumps ….BEFORE the 7th trump and the 2nd tribulation of God’s Tribulation. …which is vengeance on His enemies. …those that worshipped the 2 beast,…the multi-headed one world political system and the fake jesus satan…..they all get the hailstones, the sickle, their flesh melting off their bones,….the change of bodies in 1CORINTHIANS15,….some will be transfigured in a twinklin of the eye….those remain faithful to the true Christ “to the end”,….”the last trump”….who were not “the one taken” of the two working (for Jesus!) in the field….beware of the leaven (false doctrine!) of the Pharacies,…which is hypocrisy……for they have the Key of Knowledge, that unlocks heaven, they neither enter in themselves, and those trying to enter they hinder! The Kenites, the “bad figs” are real….they use false traditions of men,….like the apple story, the easter bunny, th r rapture, etc…..to lie and deceive God’s children away from Him into the arms of their father,…the Devil!!! Test the fruit (actions) of the tree,….and,…..check every man out in God’s Word!!!

          • Jesus Christ does not look the same as Satan. Satan is red, “Esau came out of the womb first, RED all over like a hairy garment”. Why not mention the parents being red? WHITE PEOPLE ARE RED! NOT WHITE!!!! WAKE UP, COME TO GRIPS WITH REALITY!!!! Jesus is as BLACK as coal, “feet as if *BURNT* brass”.. “with *WOOLLY* white hair.. The *BLACK* MADONNA… where people are CRAWLING to worship. The POPE is photographed worshiping the *BLACK* MADONNA. Here it is: —-> THE ROMAN EMPIRE TOOK OVER THE WORLD, ROMANS ARE ESAU = EDOMITES, the nation of Edom went everywhere, if you have WHITE – LEPROSY – VITILIGO – ALBINO SKIN.. then you are related to them.. (what color is a white newborn?) …and you’ll believe all your own Edomite scholars, and back them up, and push their false doctrine…. FAKE MESSIAH = WHITE/PINK/RED. REAL MESSIAH = BURNT BRASS = BLACK BURNED. Esau is Cain reincarnated, Cain hated Abel(black=negro), Edomites were banished, because they still had hate and could not live in harmony with the normal dark skinned society on Earth. They secretly attacked (*like a snake*) and took over. See why the kkk got started, does all the racist hatred make sense now?
            Your being lied to. Is your faith stronger than racism?

            1 John 2:22
            “Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.”

            (“Feet as if *burnt* brass (<<- brown), *woolly* white hair") *This is in the bible*, *Do you deny*?
            Mark 3:29
            "but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin"

            Matthew 24:4-5
            And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray"

            1 Timothy 4:1
            "Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons"

            Daniel 8:25
            "And through his shrewdness He will cause deceit to succeed by his influence; And he will magnify himself in his heart, And he will destroy many while they are at ease. He will even oppose the Prince of princes, But he will be broken without human agency. "
