One of the puzzles I have been trying to work through in by head is how will the Psalm 83 prophecy be fulfilled.  For the longest time there were several roadblocks that kept this from being a feasible occurence.  Some examples would be:

– Turkey was a NATO ally and future member of the EU

– Libya was under a secular dictator

– Egypt was protecting Israel’s southern border and under a secular dictator.

– Syria was under a secular dictator.

– Iraq was under US protection with a major military presence.  This acted as a buffer between Israel and Iran.

Why do I list these in particular?  Because of God’s prophecy in Psalm 83.

Psalm 83

 1 O God, do not remain silent;
   do not turn a deaf ear,
   do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,
   how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
   they plot against those you cherish.
4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
   so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

Lebanon, believe it or not, use to be a majority christian nation.  It has been and is being torn apart and is living on the edge.  This is all setting the stage for the Psalm 83 War.  It looms, and Lebanon is listed among the ancient names God laid out.


Lebanon on the Edge

The sign at the entrance of the barracks of the United Nations’ peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon (UNIFIL) reads:

“Better Late Than Never.”

When tensions rise between Israel and Lebanon, some worry UNIFIL isn’t strong or fast enough to intervene.

“We are not here to fight,” says Maj. Sabindra Nagarkoti of UNIFIL. “Our mandate says we are here just to monitor and support the (Lebanese) armed forces. Unless we have a threat to UNIFIL troops, we can’t point or shoot our weapons.”
