The Glorious Harvest of Abraham’s Seed
When I travel to Israel I fully expect the Lord to talk to me about Israel, and this latest trip was no exception. All He had to say about His plans for my people wonderfully encouraged me. But this article is not about those marvelous insights. The purpose of this article is to open to you the insights He gave to me about Abraham’s other sons, and to proclaim new prophecy over these nations.
Our gracious and wonderful heavenly Father is about to do something so extremely exciting I can hardly contain my joy concerning it.
Before I go into detail about this extravagant thing the Lord is about to do, I want to share from my heart about Israeli Jews.
I have been doing a great deal of study and research to complete this expose. Invariably when you venture into anything that pertains to Jewish history you are going to find things that I as a Jew would rather not find. This journey has been no different. The history I have uncovered was very difficult for me to read. I already knew about the pogroms that occurred in Israel against the Jewish settlers by Arabs earlier in the 1900s. It took me weeks to filter the information and deal with the pain I encountered.
This time I have tripped over information about the terrible pogroms and Hitler like brutality of the Arabs against the Jewish settlers in Arab lands. I will be speaking on all these countries in the articles I am writing before I finish this series, simply because the wisdom of God is to now turn the tide and bless our persecutors with His own Light. Night after night, as I continue my research, I retire with my heart breaking, trying hard to swallow what I have learned and then recapture the enthusiasm I have been given by the Lord over the people to whom this article is dedicated. It is difficult at best for some people to hear that the Lord is going to visit their enemies with blessings. But, to deal with the idea that He is not only going to do this, but also that His heart is full of delight and joy over what He is about to do, may bring unbearable pain.
For that reason I would like to reveal a little about the Lord’s heart in all of this. Messiah cares about every living soul. He knows better than anyone just how bad hell is. His heart convulses with pain at the idea of anyone spending eternity in that place. His love for everyone is such that the Father sent the Son to die for each and every living being. To think that someone would spend eternity in hell for which Messiah died further adds to the Father’s suffering as well. Among those for whom Messiah died are my people — the Jewish populace worldwide and the international Hebrew/Arab people for whom He also died.
He looks into the heart of the suffering Jewish person and quakes with grief over their sufferings. The same Heavenly Father then looks into the Hebrew/Arab heart and agonizes over their blindness. This blindness that leads them to a murderous hate for which there is seemingly no cure, and of which torments the soul of the one by whom it is possessed. He knows that the light of the glory of the Gospel will open their blinded eyes and cure them of this demonic hatred.
The Angel of the Lord once spoke to John G. Lake and told him that the Father’s heart was much grieved over the continual wars in the Middle East. Then he said: The Kingdom of God must first be in the hearts of men. He spoke this as the only answer to the Middle East problem. Until Jew and Arab have Messiah in their heart they will never have the freedom to love one another again. The Father loves them both. Because He loves them, He agonizes over the suffering of their lost souls.
As you read this article keep in mind that it is the Father’s love for both people groups that is going to move Him to pour out His amazing glory and heal the generations of misunderstandings, hate and unbearable pain the exists over the millenniums of war between the seeds of Abraham.
During my last visit to Israel in December of 2002 I took a local ministry with me and we drove to Jordan. Our goal was to drive through Jordan proclaiming the Father’s will among the Middle Eastern Countries, of which Jordan is certainly one. Arni Klein was driving his van. His wife Yonit and I were his passengers. Although the Kleins were kind enough to offer me the front seat, I chose to sit in the back seat so I could keep myself locked away in the spirit through prayer. I wanted to make sure I was sensitive enough to hear all that Messiah wanted to say. We had not long been in Jordan before we could see how precious the Jordanian people were. My heart was touched with pearl-drops of heavenly love for the people repeatedly as we drove through the northern part of the country. Then came the heart of Messiah awakening me to His purpose and marvelous plan for Jordan. I began to weep quietly although, uncontrollably. Messiah spoke to me through the Scripture, (Isaiah 9:1b & 2).
But in the latter time He will make it glorious by way of the sea [of Galilee,
the land beyond] beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. The people
who were walking in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who
dwelt in the land of the shadow of death a light has shined.
He instructed me that this Scripture pertained to the people now known as the "Jordanian People." Then He said: "Now pray that My light will dawn in this great darkness and that I will flood this nation with my glory in the spirit of revival." I wept continually through the north down through the outskirts of Ammon as we headed toward Mt. Nebo. I wept for the souls of the people now dwelling in darkness but to whom our Messiah desires to send His great light. My heart was filled with His love for a people who are precious to Him.
As I interceded, I began to enter a realm of light I have never touched before. I would like to share all that He has given me about this lofty subject.
The Light of the Gentiles
I am writing this article for three reasons. The first is that I feel compelled by the love of our gracious and wonderful Messiah to relate His heart for those we call the Arabian people.
The second reason I am writing is because Christians feel they either have to be for Israel or the Arabian People, but cannot be for both and please God too. The truth is God is for both, and wants us to stand in the gap for His plans for both. This leads me to the third reason for this writing: The Lord needs to fully birth the plan I am going to share into the earth through His intercessors.
Messiah loves to be known as the "Light to the Gentiles." He has no less love for the Gentile than He does the Jewish people in the world. He loves people! It is sin that He hates.
A person might look at the current Middle East crises and think: Well, if Abraham would not have messed up with Hagar all these problems would not have happened, because there would be no Ishmael.
I would first like to address that theory. The Arabs that make up the many Arabian nations are not all Ishmaelites. Among what are defined as the Arabian people you have the descendants of Ishmael, Esau, Lot, Keturah, Egyptians, some of the northern Africans, and others. Incased in this precious Arab box we also have what the Arabs call the pure and the impure Arabs. (We will expound on this last category momentarily.) So we can throw away the theory that Abraham and Hagar are responsible for all the suffering.
A little insight on how the community of Arabs came to be and where they originally landed may help us in this study. Ishmael’s descendants spread out in the south, through northern Africa and Southern Asia. Isaac’s wayward son, Esau crouched down in what is now known as southern Jordan, southern Israel, and Saudi Arabia, (primarily in north and the western slope). Lot’s descendants through Moab and Ammon settled just north of Edom. So Moab, Ammon, and Edom comprise what we now call Jordan. Then of course you have the sons of Keturah who occupied "The East Country", that is the country east of what was referred to earlier in the century as Palestine or the Euphrates. As far as I can tell from my study helps and my friend and Hebrew scholar, David Michael who knows this history well, traveling due-east and northeast, you have what we now call lands such as Turkey which incidentally is not Arab, Iraq, parts of Assyria, etc. which were inhabited by Keturah’s sons. Although the boys were sent east some of them did end up settling in parts of Africa. Also, Joktan the brother of Heber Abraham’s Father), son of Arphaxad inhabited parts of what is now called Saudi Arabia.
These of course were the movements of the Arabian people of ancient times. A hundred or so years ago, those who were at that time considered Arabian people; that is the tribes of Arabia; were largely nomadic and traveled all over what is today considered the Arab world as well as Palestine. These living patterns brought about a degree of mixture among the descendants. Not to mention the kingdoms and dynasties who sent their own people into the new areas of their control when they ruled among various Arab nations. One example is the Turkish Empire who peppered Turks throughout the Arab nations during the course of their rule. We do however know the roots of the Arab people stem back to the sources I mentioned earlier. So, you see Abraham has many sons and many descendants now comprising what we call the Arab world.
We could just say, well Abraham should have stayed home with Sarah and left everyone else alone, then today Israel would know peace. Those of us embracing that theory might do so forgetting that no soul can be born without the permission of our Divine Creator. Secondly, once again, Edom, Ammon, and Moab have nothing directly to do with Abraham in that sense. The matrix of Israel’s problem is not the Arabian Nations, nor is it the Palestinians, (whom many theorize are descendants of the Philistines.) Israel’s greatest problem is the anti-Christ spirit who hates all Christians, Israel, and those whom we call the Arabian People whom it dominates with great delight, under the spirit of Islam. The human tragedies have risen out of the anti-semite spirit.
I would like to take another minute before we go into the heart of this theses and share a little further about the origin of the Arab people. With David Michael’s vast knowledge, the Bible, and my study helps I have been able to piece together only a small portion of Arab history. I feel that what I can offer will help us better understand God’s end-time purpose so I would like to share a little of it with you.
Genealogists claim there are two streams of Arabian people. First you have what has come to be termed the Pure Arabs, who are descendents of Shem (the son of Noah), through Arphaxad. *(S/B) It was through Arphaxad’s son Heber, the ancestor of Abraham by six generations that the Hebrews first began being called "Hebrews." (In other words descendents of Heber: the title simply meaning "Children of Heber, the people from beyond.") But when Adonai called Abraham aside unto Himself, he came to be known as a Jew, meaning "true worshipper of Yahveh". Nevertheless his original, natural lineage is from Arphaxad, the father of all Pure Arabs and Heber, his son the father of all Hebrews. Sarah was Abraham’s half sister carrying the lineage of the Pure Hebrews from Heber as well. Isaac their only son also married Rebecca from a Pure Hebrew tribe so again their offspring would have been in the natural, Hebrew. However, as the title "Jew" (in Hebrew, Yehudi) depicted Abraham’s devotion to Yahveh, Abraham became the head of a new clan writing a new destiny…being a true worshipper of Yahveh, whom the Lord called a JEW.
This is why Abraham was told to leave his country and his people. Much of his extended family had fallen into idol worship. The Lord wanted to make a whole new nation that would love, serve Him, and through whom He could preserve the world as a result of their devotion to the one true God. It would be likened to the Church today. If there were no Church there would be no world as the degeneration of the world would have become such a long time ago, that God would have been forced to destroy it. However, because the Church remains, it is by virtue its very existence the salt that preserves the earth from eminent judgment. In this same way Abraham and his family became the only salt by which God was able to preserve the earth until the appearing of His Son, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). At the time appointed, it would be that through the Abrahamic family line, moreover through his Jewish line that He would send a Savior who would more than preserve the world but would SAVE the world.
Going back to the Arab history for a minute, we also have what is known as the Impure Arab, bloodline. Ishmael, who was descendant of Abraham the Hebrew, and of Hagar an Egyptian, is the fountain source of the impure Arab. Further, after the birth of Ishmael, the intermarriages that occurred among his descendents caused even greater impurity in the bloodline. They did however populate much of northern Africa incorporating many Nations on our current geographical maps. We also have Syria whose ancient father was Aram, Arphaxad’s brother. Shem had other sons who raised up other nations who would have been considered Semite. But only the lineage through his son Arphaxad would have been considered a Pure Arab lineage.
So, you see that only a few of what we have heretofore considered the Arab Nations actually come out of the loins of Abraham. Others come out of a vast reservoir of Shemites that now covers much of the Arab world.
In my studies for this article it occurred to me that Heber the father of all Hebrew people, Abram being only one of his sons, gave birth to other sons and daughters whom were all considered Hebrew not Arab. But, of whom today we call Arab. These people such as the descendants of Lot, Esau, Peleg, Reu, Nahor, and Haran are all actually Hebrew. Some, of these are traceable today and some are not.
Well, the Lord has hidden in His Word some major and extraordinary promises for the other sons of Abraham, which David suggested might be called Abrahamic people, both Hebrew and Arab, of the Arab World. Upon these I want to expound.
We will begin with Jordan, which again comprises ~ the sons of Lot, who became a believer through Abraham, — Ammon, Moab, and Edom, (Esau) Isaac’s firstborn. This Nation though largely inhabited by Arabs who have migrated to the area, is also inhabited by Hebrews, the descendents of the afore mentioned subjects.
The Lord gave me two visions regarding Jordan as I prayed over the revelation I was receiving regarding the Arab people, most particularly Edom.
"Suddenly, I saw a vision of all of Jordan. The Lord then spoke to me saying: I will cover this land. I was given to feel His own passion. It was as though the Father had claimed for Himself, with great earnest, the land of Jordan. I was not yet through attempting to work through the passion I had just been baptized with when He gave me another vision. I saw all the land of Edom’s inheritance clear down almost to Yemen. With this vision came that same passionate love of the Father for the descendants of Esau. Then the Lord spoke saying: All of this is mine!"
It was because of historical judgments that I knew the Lord made against Edom that He had to cut across my natural knowledge and give me the truth about the future of Edom. After I saw these visions I began to search out the Scriptures I had never considered before. As I read verse after verse, the mystery of the future of many of the Arabian Nations peopled by both Hebrews and Arabs, began to unfold. That wasn’t enough for me however. I then phoned my friend David Michael, the Hebrew Scholar, and went over the visions and the Scriptures as well as the unfolding revelations I was receiving. He added much historical insight to what I was being given and added some revelation of his own. We were both so wrapped in the glory of the Lord we were no longer in touch with the earthly sphere. The Spirit of revelation continued releasing Scripture and historical insight giving meaning to both as we talked. All that we came upon by the Spirit of Revelation was easily confirmed through the Word or historical studies once we knew where to look.
OF EDOM, particularly, the Lord made some startling decisions many centuries ago. Those decisions are all listed in the Bible and depicted as a cleansing of the land upon which the Edomites lived by eliminating the inhabitants. Some of these judgments were so severe, one wonders how these Hebrews could survive for any future blessings.
Yet, God is so merciful that He has included even Edom in His end time blessings. Jeremiah prophesied in (Jeremiah 49:6, 11, 15) that when God finished the cycle of His judgments upon Edom that Edom would be small among the nations, but nevertheless alive and thriving. Further, God promised to be a refuge to the women and children of Edom. In other words, a remnant would survive and live to tell the glories of Yahveh. That is where we are today. Most of the land given to Edom is desolate and uninhabitable as a result of the past judgments of the Lord. I remember a recent prayer journey to Israel to which I took a team of ministers. As we passed by the mountain range that Edom was given, many of us saw what looked like streams of blood running down the mountain side for several miles. Slope after slope seemed to be covered with this image of streaming blood. I prayed and prayed, asked the others to look: yes many of them saw it: so I prayed some more, what does it mean. The Holy Spirit then led me to some Scriptures that spoke of the judgment that He sent upon Edom for the shedding of innocent blood. Moreover, shedding of the innocent blood of the Jewish people. Still Jeremiah promised that even in the great judgment, Messiah would still show mercy. So, there are flourishing metropolises such as Aqaba that have huge populations in Edom.
The Lord said: Moab is my washpot; upon Edom I cast my shoe in triumph;
over Philistia I raise the shout of victory. Who will bring me into the
strong city of Petra? Who will lead me into Edom.
For Edom: Messiah is saying I will enter into covenant with them. The covenant of the Kinsmen Redeemer which, is a covenant to raise them up and give them children so that the redeemed one can restore the name of the deceased family to their inheritance. This act of casting a shoe over or toward someone was an ancient practice in Israel for entering into the covenant. This covenant is so comprehensive that it promises to protect the land from all intruders as well as, to care for the land to bring forth the rightful fruit. Also, to raise up offspring to the deceased that his name not be lost in Israel. In otherwords, the Kinsmen Redeemer marries — but like Boaz marrying Ruth, he gives birth to a son to restore the name of the deceased to their rightful inheritance, such as in the case of Naomi’s husband and sons, whom had died in Moab losing their inheritance. In this true story, Boaz was a type of Messiah. He showed us how Messiah would redeem Moab, or in this case Edom and give the Edomite Church sons to restore their ancestral name to the kingdom of God. I can imagine how thrilled Isaac will be to see his son’s name restored through his offspring. This one Scripture shows us the great and ancient love the Lord has carried for the sons of Esau. Though He disciplined them greatly, He loved them still.
In Ps. 60: 9: The Lord is asking for evangelists to bring Him to Petra, prophets to bring Him to Edom. While Arni, Yonit and I were in Petra praying, the Lord showed me things about Petra’s history as well as the present in some tangible prophetic experiences I won’t cover here. Then He began to lead me in the prayer of the Kinsman Redeemer, that He might restore the spiritually dead to life and the name of the dead (or family name) to its inheritance. (This is preparatory for the millennial reign when I believe the tribes of the earth will live on the land that has been given them by the Lord in this life. Those who are multicultural will live in the land of their inheritance for which they were destined in this life.) I prayed that He would come to Edom with His glory and a Spirit of Revival and heal the nation. I prayed that He would send laborers to the fields of Edom. (It wasn’t until weeks later that the Lord brought these Scriptures and their meaning to my attention, as I mentioned in the above narrative), confirming the revelations He gave me while in Jordan.
The Scripture says in Isaiah 16:1 to send the lamb from Petra to the prince in the wilderness. The Prince of Jordan lives in Ammon which is surrounded by Jordan’s vast wilderness. From Ammon, the lamb is to go on to Jerusalem making peace between Jordan and Israel. I also prayed this while in Petra. Can you imagine King Abdulla and his Queen coming to salvation through Messiah? I believe with all my heart this is going to happen.
Who is this Who comes from Edom, with crimson-stained
garments from Bozrah? This One Who is glorious in His
apparel, striding triumphantly in the greatness of His might?
It is I, the One Who speaks in righteousness, mighty to save.
Why is Your apparel splashed with red, and Your garments like
the one who treads in the winepress.
I have trodden the winepress alone, and of the peoples there was
no one with Me. I trod them in my anger, and trampled them in My
wrath; and their lifeblood is sprinkled upon My garments,
and I stain all My raiment. For the day of vengeance was in My
heart, and My year of redemption has come.
At first glance it may look like the Lord is speaking of destruction of Edom, but as we keep reading, we realize that He speaking of the destruction of the wicked, and that this destruction is coming because it is the year of His redemption of the righteous. Where? In Jordan! Further down in this passage, Israel is seemingly aghast at the anger of the Lord toward the unrighteous in Jordan, and a cry for Adonai’s mercy toward Israel arises as a result. So, again we see the Lord coming forth with great redemption in Jordan, and now Israel as a result of His righteous justice.
One last Scripture for Edom. Isaac was in great travail as was Esau when Esau understood that his father had just given Jacob his inheritance, the birthright of the firstborn. He pleaded with Isaac to do something that would be unprecedented. He asked Isaac to give him a blessing as well. Isaac out of his great love for his son, relented and went against tradition and gave his son a powerful blessing. The most important part of the blessing that is found in Genesis 27: 32-40 is that Isaac spoke the blessing of "the dew of heaven" over his favored son. This was the same blessing given to Joseph by Israel. It speaks of the sons of the kingdom of God, which will be as the dew. (see also Ps. 110.) This whole scene is a prophetic scene of the tribe of Edom crying out to the Father above for the blessing of the heavenly kingdom. Their awakening may come after Israel awakens, to the true kingdom, but they will, as a people group come to eternal life. We see it in Esau before Isaac, in the Word.
FOR MOAB, which is central Jordan and inhabited by Arab and Hebrew people, He is saying, in the words: "Moab is My washpot"! True Moabites are Hebrew. However, as Arabs now populate most of this region the Lord is saying of these people, both those of Hebrew and Arab descent, they will serve me as a true servant ~ a bondservant of love and eternal devotion. That is the heart of a true bondservant. They choose to be servants to their master for life and to serve him at the very cost of their life if need be. What an incredible word over Moab.
Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela (Petra) to the
wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion. For it shall be
that as a wondering bird cast out of the nest, so the daughters
of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon. Take counsel, execute
judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the
noonday; hide the outcasts; betray not him that wandereth. Let My
outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face
of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth,
the oppressors are consumed out of the land. And in mercy shall the
throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the
tabernacle of David, judging and seeking judgment, and
What awesome words! The Lord is telling His people Israel to cover and protect His outcasts of Moabite descent. He also promises that the day will come when a Prince will sit upon the throne of Jordan in the office of King David judging righteously in the Tabernacle of David. I believe this Prince will be King Abdulla. Jeremiah confirms this already incredible word the following:
saith the Lord, thus far is the judgment of Moab.
Again returning to the picture of Ruth, we see Messiah in the person of Boaz, and the nation of Moab in the person of Ruth who was a Moabitess.
Ruth, prophetically representing Moab says to Naomi who prophetically represents Israel:
Urge me not to leave you or turn back from following you;
for where you go I will go ; and where you will lodge I will
lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God will
be my God. Where you will die I will die and there I will be
buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also if anything but
death parts me from you.
Again Ruth is speaking prophetically for her generations. She is saying to Israel on behalf of her generations yet to come, your people will be my people, and your God will my God. She has thus prophesied the future of Jordan.
Again, we see Ruth speaking prophetically, answering to the Scripture in Isaiah 16:1-5 as she says to Boaz, a type of Israel and a type of Messiah : Spread your wing of protection over your maid-servant for you are next of kin. Boaz gives a ready and eager response to her plea, and enters into the role of Kinsman Redeemer. This is what Isaiah was alluding to in the word in the 16th chapter. The Lord was telling Israel to become a Kinsman Redeemer to Moab in the latter days.
Boaz meets the elders at the city gate to complete the work of the Kinsman Redeemer, and says:
Also, Ruth the Moabites, the widow of Mahlon I have bought
to be my wife to restore the name of the dead to his
inheritance, that the name of the dead may not be cut off
from among his brethren and from the gate of his birthplace.
The elders were excited about the nobility of this man Boaz and they were in awe of the nobility of this Moabitess, named Ruth who had just earned a place in their heats for her treatment of the Jewish woman Naomi. The Spirit of revelation came upon them and they began to declare the future of her people:
May the Lord make the woman who is coming into your house like
Rachel and Leah, the two who built the household of Israel.
May you do worthily and get wealth in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem.
And let your house be like the house of Perez, whom Tamar bore to
Judah, because of the offspring which the Lord will give you by this woman.
As we all know she found herself in the lineage of the Messiah. But, that is not all. They called her to be the mother of two houses. Prophetically speaking, this is Moab and Ammon. Ammon actually being her Hebrew relative through Lot who was the father of both. Indeed this woman Ruth will be the spiritual mother of the two houses of her kinsmen, Moab and Ammon.
Let me give you another parable taken from a true story of Ruth’s father Lot. The Lord gave this to David as we talked.
The Word says that God will bless a man to a thousand generations of those who love Him. The Word also tells us that Lot loved the Lord. It says that Sodom vexed his righteous soul. Most ministers condemn Lot, but the Bible applauds him by calling him righteous. The Bible says that Adonai will be merciful to those who love Him to a thousand generations. The Lord loved Lot, and Lot loved the Lord. God has yet to show this mercy to a thousand of Lot’s generations. If God will remember my people Israel in the last days because of His love for Abraham, then He will do the same for Lot. In His Word He said He would bring forth His mercy upon the children of Lot in the latter days.
David also informed me that the Jewish sages of old believe that the light of the Lord was over both Lot and Abraham, and that it was not necessarily good that they divided, as although the light was over the two men, it was a light of one. Further, they believe that the light was brought back into the unity it should never have lost through Ruth. She was a vessel in the Father’s hand to enact His prophetic plan for the generations to come bringing the sons of Abraham and the sons of Lot under the light of the glorious Kingdom.
So, we see in this the Father above revealing His plan and bringing it to definition and perfection to honor righteous Lot and to honor righteous Ruth in these last days.
One more confirming Scripture on behalf of Ammon:
And afterwards I will reverse the captivity of Ammon and restore
But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me
that I am the Lord, Who practices lovingkindness, judgment, and
righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the
Lord. Behold the days are coming when I will punish all who though
circumcised [outwardly in the flesh] are still uncircumcised [in corresponding inward purity.] Egypt, Judah, Edom, the children of Ammon, Moab and
all who live in the desert and clip off the corners of their hair and beards.
To all of these God’s judgment would come in justice and lovingkindness. This means He will purge out the ungodly and make a place for the godly. This will occur in the last days.
One more confirming Scripture of this great work the Lord is going to do in the Hebrew-Arab Nation of Jordan. Again, David gave me this insight.
Speaking of the Anti-Christ
He shall enter into the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be
overthrown, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom, Moab,
and the chief of the children of Ammon.
Although, the anti-Christ will rise up and dare to enter the Glorious Land of Israel, the Lord will not allow him to take Jordan. I believe it goes right back to Abraham, and Lot.
Once again David Michael gave this analogy. We see Abraham standing on the mountain with the Lord interceding for Lot and his family. The Lord accepted his intercession, and Lot was spared. In Abraham we see the Church interceding for Jordan and the Lord answering our prayers by delivering Jordan from the world and bringing him into the Kingdom of Heaven and under the protection of God in the war of the anti-Christ.
Although God greatly disciplined England for dividing the land of Israel, I can see that through man’s failures God has preserved a part of the Glorious Land under the hand of the Jordanian people.
Summarizing the whole insight regarding Jordan, God is going to release a mighty outpouring of His Spirit on that Nation saving untold numbers of people. He is going to do this to honor His Word, which we find in the Holy Bible. This He will do in the last days. Further, He is going to protect Jordan from the anti-Christ. I have a feeling, the Lord is going to use Jordan as a haven of safety for many Jewish people in those days.
In Egypt we have a vast deposit of the descendents of Ishmael. We also see that although Egypt is not going to escape the attack of the anti-Christ, Messiah is going to enter into a time of an outpouring of the Spirit of the Lord in revival upon Egypt that will be unprecedented.
In that day there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the
language of [the Hebrews] of Canaan and swear allegiance to the Lord of Host.
One of them will be called the City of the Sun, or Destruction.
In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt,
and a pillar to the Lord at its boarder.
And it will be a sign and a witness to the Lord of Host in the land of Egypt;
for they will cry to the Lord because of oppressors, and He will send
them a Savior, a mighty One, and He will deliver them. And the
Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in
that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblations; yea they shall vow a vow
unto the Lord and perform it. And the Lord shall smite Egypt, He shall
smite it and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and He shall be entreated of them and shall heal them.
The Lord shall allow the smiting of Egypt only as a means of healing it for the sake of His promise to Abraham. Again we see the typology in Abraham interceding for Ishmael before the Father. He sought with earnest that the Father would watch over his firstborn Ishmael knowing that his own godly influence over Ishmael’s life would be no longer exist. The Father comforted His friend Abraham with a promise to do as he asked of Him. In this same way Messiah besought the Father on behalf of Ishmael that in these last days he might be saved. Also, we the Church are called to do what Abraham did. We are called to intercede for Ishmael that his seed is found ripe in the harvest field and ready to be picked by the Spirit of Grace in the great outpouring that has been promised. By our prayers, Messiah will give Himself a great harvest in Egypt, I believe in part to honor Abraham’s prayer for Ishmael. The Lord’s comforting response to the grievous pain that was in Abraham’s heart was: "Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman! And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation because he is your seed."
