  • 00:07 Caleb Colson: Every generation says it,
  • 00:09 the end is near.
  • 00:11 So forever there's been biblical confusion on how close we are
  • 00:14 to the end.
  • 00:16 Joshua Colson: Just 20 years ago the Psalm 83 war would have
  • 00:18 seemed impossible; but because of recent events like
  • 00:19 in 2005 the Gaza disengagement set the stage,
  • 00:24 things like Arab Spring in 2011.
  • 00:26 Caleb: It's time to explain to people the possibility

  • 00:40 David Hart: We're so glad you've joined us today for our
  • 00:41 series all about Armageddon.
  • 00:44 I don't believe it's by coincidence that right now
  • 00:47 is this series, right?
  • 00:49 Caleb: That's right.
  • 00:50 There's so much going on in the world today.
  • 00:51 There's been wars of Israel and Hamas and people are wondering
  • 00:54 what's going on.
  • 00:56 That's why our series is called "Roadmap to Armageddon."
  • 00:59 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 01:01 It's the time where we're going to see
  • 01:03 these chronological steps that it takes to get to that battle,
  • 01:07 and some people think, "Oh, it could happen any day now."
  • 01:10 No.
  • 01:11 There are prerequisites that must occur
  • 01:12 before it can take place.
  • 01:14 Joshua: We know people have had questions for years about
  • 01:16 this topic and, you know, you don't usually want to ask
  • 01:18 the questions 'cause you don't want to be that guy,
  • 01:20 but we're going to put everybody in the same position to learn.
  • 01:23 So get your pen and paper.

  • 01:52 Caleb: And today we're going to talk about--

  • 01:55 Caleb: I'm sorry. Hey, it's Jeff.
  • 01:57 Joshua: Oh.
  • 01:59 Dr. Jeffrey Seif: Gentlemen. Caleb: What's up, Jeff?
  • 02:01 Dr. Jeffrey Seif: There's a song in culture from my day,
  • 02:03 maybe I'm dating myself, called "Stairway to Heaven."
  • 02:06 It's not particularly religious, but I'm thinking of this because
  • 02:09 we're going to be looking at the highway to hell.
  • 02:13 We're going a different direction.
  • 02:14 In this case it's not a rock group singing,
  • 02:17 it's the rock of ages who offers a telling of the ragged edge
  • 02:21 of human history.
  • 02:23 Gentlemen, in this series you are tasked to open up the book,

  • 02:59 Dr. Jeffrey Seif: Off you go, gentlemen,
  • 03:01 to look at the war of wars as you consider the roadmap
  • 03:05 to Armageddon.
  • 03:11 Caleb: Every generation says it, the end is near.
  • 03:15 So forever there's been biblical confusion on how close
  • 03:17 we are to the end.
  • 03:19 Why?
  • 03:20 Because most Christians don't read the Bible.
  • 03:23 Instead, they derive all their apocalyptic knowledge
  • 03:25 from pop culture.
  • 03:27 In fact, this has become an obsession recently with young
  • 03:29 adult media and post-dystopian period entertainment.
  • 03:33 Joshua: But Kirk Cameron's already made all those movies
  • 03:36 about the rapture.
  • 03:38 What else is there to talk about, brother?
  • 03:40 Caleb: Most Christians, Josh, believe the tribulation has
  • 03:43 already started even though the beast hasn't ratified a peace
  • 03:45 treaty between Israel and her enemies yet.
  • 03:48 Joshua: What if we made like a felt board and it had like
  • 03:53 a timeline for everything that was going to happen
  • 03:56 before everybody gets... you know?
  • 04:00 Caleb: I can't believe I'm going to say this,
  • 04:01 Josh, but that's not a bad idea.
  • 04:03 Joshua: Yes, I knew it. Felt saves lives.
  • 04:08 Caleb: Not a felt, Josh, but a timeline;
  • 04:12 actually a roadmap, a roadmap through Israel showing everyone
  • 04:16 step by step the chronological steps it takes to reach
  • 04:20 Armageddon.
  • 04:22 Joshua: Oh, yeah. Okay.
  • 04:23 Like an idiot's--like a cliff notes guide to everything's
  • 04:25 going to happen in Armageddon.
  • 04:27 Yeah, I like that idea.
  • 04:29 Hey, can we get some shawarma though?
  • 04:31 Like a--not the idol worship shawarma,
  • 04:33 the one that everybody's going to go to hell with.
  • 04:34 Like the good, Old Testament shawarma;
  • 04:36 you know, the one that's Levitically-sound.
  • 04:38 I think that'd be wonderful.
  • 04:40 Caleb: You know, there's actually a rogue event that
  • 04:43 could possibly take place before the rapture that actually sets
  • 04:46 up all the events to come, including the battle of
  • 04:49 Gog and Magog.

  • 05:14 Caleb: Flowing with milk and honey.

  • 05:36 Caleb: All right, guys.
  • 05:38 The next event on God's prophetic calendar is a Psalm 83
  • 05:39 war and already nations are in alignment to form
  • 05:43 a coalition against Israel.
  • 05:45 Joshua: Coa what?
  • 05:46 Brother, if you're going to keep using big words nobody
  • 05:48 understands, nobody's going to learn everything.
  • 05:50 What we need to do is go find all this koala stuff you're
  • 05:52 talking about, get pictures of it,
  • 05:54 show ourselves with selfies with it,
  • 05:55 then people are going to believe what we're saying

  • 06:02 Joshua: Damascus. Kenneth Berg: Damascus?
  • 06:07 Joshua: Yeah.
  • 06:08 Kenneth: Kind of dangerous. I don't think so.

  • 06:57 Oh, Phil. Okay.
  • 06:59 Do I work out? Yeah, I do.
  • 07:01 Brother is going to have to hit the gym.

  • 07:34 Joshua: Well, that was a journey.
  • 07:36 Let me just tell you I'm more than a little bit jet-lagged,
  • 07:39 but we finally made it to our hotel here in Galilee.
  • 07:42 You can probably see the sea behind me
  • 07:44 if you squint hard enough.
  • 07:46 We're going to have to get some rest because;
  • 07:48 well, we got a lot ahead of us.
  • 07:50 Caleb: Yeah.
  • 07:51 At sunset tonight, guys, begins the Feast of Sukkot.
  • 07:53 I don't think it's by accident that we're here during
  • 07:55 the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • 07:57 That's a foreshadowing, a reminder that Yeshua wins at the
  • 08:00 end of the day; that he will tabernacle with men,
  • 08:03 and we will rule and reign with him for 1,000 years.
  • 08:06 But there's a lot of bad that happens before that,
  • 08:08 and that's going to be part of a journey you're going to come on
  • 08:10 us with these next few weeks.
  • 08:12 Joshua: So tomorrow we get up early and we head to the
  • 08:14 northernmost city on the border of--
  • 08:18 Caleb: Lebanon.
  • 08:19 Joshua: Lebanon. I thought it was Lebanon.
  • 08:20 I just wanted to make sure.
  • 08:21 I've also got to find out from the hotel if I can
  • 08:23 get a different one.
  • 08:24 I think this is a medium.

  • 08:41 Caleb: What you see there, stage one of sleep deprivation.

  • 08:53 country we got to do it in style,
  • 08:56 but we should also be unexpected.
  • 08:57 I was thinking smart car. No.
  • 09:00 A Jeep. Okay.
  • 09:03 I mean, it's not much bigger than my coach seat on
  • 09:04 the airplane, but it can climb over stuff.
  • 09:07 Let's see if we can get me in this thing.
  • 09:10 Does anybody have Crisco?
  • 09:15 Caleb: Guys, to understand Psalm 83,
  • 09:17 we have to look at the context first and its offer.
  • 09:20 Asaph the seer, Josh.
  • 09:22 Asaph was not a conventional prophet,
  • 09:25 a nabi in Hebrew; one that would deliver a message from the Lord.
  • 09:28 He was a ro'eh or a hozeh; someone who saw things in the
  • 09:34 future and then wrote them down, chronicle of what he saw.
  • 09:36 He was a poet, a musician; and he wrote Psalm 50 and 73
  • 09:43 through 83.
  • 09:44 Joshua: Yes, he did.
  • 09:45 Asaph was the chief among the Levites and a musicians at the
  • 09:49 tabernacle of David, and around--that was 1000 BC.
  • 09:52 He wrote prophetic psalms.
  • 09:55 He gave them to the chief musicians so that they could
  • 09:58 play them.
  • 10:00 I believe his favorite instrument was clanging, right?
  • 10:02 Caleb: The cymbals.
  • 10:03 Joshua: Clanging the cymbals. He loved that.
  • 10:07 Caleb: It's my instrument of choice.
  • 10:09 Joshua: Psalm 83 was a prophetic paradigm that
  • 10:11 was written and it caused a lot of controversy,
  • 10:14 but that's a cry of deliverance to God.
  • 10:17 Caleb: Yes.
  • 10:19 From a future enemy, Josh, a coalition that was intent on
  • 10:22 destroying Israel.
  • 10:24 Joshua: Psalm 83:1 through 4, "Do not keep silent, O God.
  • 10:28 Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God.
  • 10:32 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
  • 10:35 and those who hate You have lifted up their head.
  • 10:37 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people and
  • 10:40 consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
  • 10:44 They have said, 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a
  • 10:47 nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.'"
  • 10:53 Joshua: That was heavy.
  • 10:55 We were recently talking with Shaul,
  • 10:57 our very good friend, Israeli-born master of the
  • 10:59 Hebrew tongue, talking about the repetition in verse 1.
  • 11:03 Three times Asaph implores Adonai to rise up
  • 11:05 against the enemy.
  • 11:07 He implores the Father, the Son, the Ruach HaKodesh.
  • 11:11 Caleb: In verse 3 it says, "They've taken crafty counsel
  • 11:14 against Your people.
  • 11:15 They've consulted against Your sheltered ones."
  • 11:18 Sheltered is very interesting because we are here at Kiryat
  • 11:21 Shmona, the furthest city to the north on the border of Lebanon.
  • 11:25 There are shelters throughout this entire city,
  • 11:28 bomb shelters, because of rockets that rain down
  • 11:30 upon this city.
  • 11:32 Well, shelter would better be translated as hidden ones from
  • 11:34 the Hebrew word tzafun, which is the same word used to describe
  • 11:39 the afikoman in the Passover Seder.
  • 11:41 So these--this coalition that's coming against Israel is trying
  • 11:44 to discover the hidden secret behind Israel's success just
  • 11:48 like with Samson and the Philistines trying to find out
  • 11:52 his secret to lead to his downfall.
  • 11:54 Joshua: I've kind of learned that when they start asking me
  • 11:57 my secret don't answer it.
  • 11:58 Joshua: But just like that.
  • 12:00 It's like when somebody walks into the parking lot and says,
  • 12:01 "Are you Joshua?"
  • 12:03 I say no because three seconds later I'm getting my hair cut,
  • 12:05 my strength falls out, and I'm having to say,
  • 12:07 "Yes, sir," in court.
  • 12:09 [machine whirring]
  • 12:12 Caleb: There's our friend Jewish Bob the--
  • 12:15 He traveled all the way from DFW Dallas-Fort Worth to visit us,
  • 12:19 and he knows right when we say action to turn on and start
  • 12:22 weeding it, man, every time in the "Bearded Bible Brothers"
  • 12:25 without fail.
  • 12:28 Joshua: Kiryat Shmona, Israel's northernmost city just
  • 12:32 a mile from the Lebanon border, has seen its shares of woes.
  • 12:36 Asaph's prophetic psalm said it all.
  • 12:40 It's faced massacre, suicide bombers,
  • 12:42 even all-out war.
  • 12:43 Most recently the first and second Lebanon war in 2006 in
  • 12:46 the war Hezbollah in Lebanon, over 1,000 Katyusha
  • 12:50 rockets hit the city.
  • 12:51 This place became a ghost town.
  • 12:53 Forty-three Israeli citizens were killed and a hundred and
  • 12:56 seventeen IDF soldiers.
  • 12:57 Caleb: FYI, guys, this teaching was taught just days
  • 13:00 before the war of Hamas began, and once again Kiryat Shmona
  • 13:05 became a ghost town thanks to Hezbollah joining the war.
  • 13:08 This should give new meaning to the teachings you're
  • 13:10 about to hear.
  • 13:12 Caleb: It's interesting that a lot of Bible prophecy experts
  • 13:16 believe that Psalm 83 has already been fulfilled,
  • 13:18 you know, from the myriad of wars and conflicts since the
  • 13:21 rebirth of the state of Israel.
  • 13:23 In 1948 you had the Arab-Israeli war;
  • 13:25 1967, the Six-Day War; 1973, the Yom Kippur War.
  • 13:30 We had Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, even Saudi Arabia,
  • 13:33 but none of those wars had all of the nations in a single
  • 13:36 coalition as Psalm 83 describes.
  • 13:39 Joshua: Yet despite all of the attempts of the enemy to
  • 13:43 destroy the Israeli people, today they still thrive.
  • 13:45 Around me you can see commerce, you can see all of the amenities
  • 13:50 of a normal life as people still flourish here in Kiryat Shmona.
  • 13:56 Caleb: Psalm 83:5 through 8 says,
  • 13:58 "For they have consulted together with one consent;
  • 14:01 they form a confederacy against You.
  • 14:04 The tents of Edom and Ishmaelites,
  • 14:06 Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal, Byblos,
  • 14:10 Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
  • 14:13 Assyria also has joined with them.
  • 14:16 They have helped the children of Lot.
  • 14:19 Selah."
  • 14:22 Joshua: These are the modern-day countries of
  • 14:25 those from times past.
  • 14:27 They form a confederacy, more literally a covenant.
  • 14:30 Berit in Hebrew.
  • 14:31 This covenant is a satanic one where they literally sell their
  • 14:35 soul to darkness.
  • 14:37 Caleb: I think someone needs to discuss the elephant
  • 14:39 in the room.
  • 14:40 It's a child's playground.
  • 14:42 There's three dirty, old rusted tanks hijacked from Lebanon.
  • 14:45 I mean, someone could get tetanus playing
  • 14:47 on one of those things.
  • 14:48 Caleb: Well, these nations listed the leader is Edom and
  • 14:51 Ishmaelites, and you know the conflict in times past with
  • 14:55 Jacob and Esau.
  • 14:57 Esau is Edom.
  • 14:58 And though these two brothers settle their dispute toward the
  • 15:01 end of their lives, the generations of their children
  • 15:03 did not and the conflict continue.
  • 15:05 Well, these Edomites or so-called Palestinians,
  • 15:10 as we refer to them, carried on through history.
  • 15:13 When the 1948 Arab-Israeli war happened,
  • 15:15 they left the country at the behest of their hatred
  • 15:19 for the Jews.
  • 15:20 They came into countries like Jordan who promised them,
  • 15:23 you know, citizenship or rights and once they conquered Israel
  • 15:27 they would come back, but they never got to come back
  • 15:30 because Israel won.
  • 15:31 I mean, we obtained the victory, and then they were treated
  • 15:34 as third-class citizens in those countries.
  • 15:37 So these are Edomites, which would possibly be the West Bank
  • 15:41 territory as well.
  • 15:42 Joshua: Those Ishmaelites, the descendants of the redheaded
  • 15:44 stepchild Ishmael, who was Abraham's son with his--
  • 15:47 from Egypt Hagar.
  • 15:49 We know that this feud was formed because God chose Isaac
  • 15:53 to put the covenant with, not Ishmael.
  • 15:56 As the descendants went on, even though God blessed his
  • 15:58 descendants with 12 sons and massive land because his father
  • 16:02 was Abraham, it wasn't enough for them.
  • 16:05 Saudi Arabia wasn't enough.
  • 16:07 They wanted the small land of Israel.
  • 16:09 Joshua: Genesis 16:12, "Ishmael,
  • 16:12 he will be a wild donkey of a man;
  • 16:15 his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand
  • 16:17 against him, and he will live in hostility towards all
  • 16:21 his brothers."
  • 16:22 Caleb: The next country is Ammon and Moab.
  • 16:25 These were the illegitimate children that Lot had through
  • 16:28 his two daughters.
  • 16:29 They have been at conflict with Israel since the beginning.
  • 16:33 Joshua: Hagrites are from Egypt,
  • 16:35 the descendants of Hagar; and they never lost their
  • 16:37 hatred for Israel.
  • 16:38 Caleb: That's right, Josh.
  • 16:40 And then the next group is the Philistines.
  • 16:42 You think of Philistines as the Palestinians today.
  • 16:46 That's what they claimed their moniker as.
  • 16:48 They were originally Greek-seafaring people and they
  • 16:51 weren't the Arab nationals that people try to claim today.
  • 16:55 It was all part of a disinformation campaign created
  • 16:57 by Yasser Arafat who's Egyptian born,
  • 17:00 who decided this was a plane to claim that they
  • 17:02 were the original Philistines, the Palestinians,
  • 17:05 to claim that territory of Israel.
  • 17:07 Joshua: Assyria is interesting.
  • 17:09 Its territory stretched from Syria to northern Iraq
  • 17:13 to parts of Turkey.
  • 17:14 Caleb: That's right.
  • 17:15 And the oracle of Damascus, Isaiah 17,
  • 17:17 could be part of the Psalm 83 conflict where Damascus is
  • 17:19 wiped out in a single night.
  • 17:21 But interesting country Amalek, one of the very last,
  • 17:24 the Amalekites were wiped out by King Saul at the command of God;
  • 17:29 but King Agag, his descendants survived.
  • 17:33 They became the Agagites.
  • 17:34 You know the story Esther with Purim,
  • 17:36 and Haman was an Agagite.
  • 17:38 His whole lineage and sea were wiped out.
  • 17:40 So how can Amalek, who was completely wiped out--wiped off
  • 17:44 the face of the earth, be involved in this war?
  • 17:47 Well, are they the Bedouins that lived in the desert?
  • 17:49 No. This is the wildcard.
  • 17:51 They could be a hidden nation.
  • 17:53 They could be mercenaries, people who joined against Israel
  • 17:56 because of their common hatred of the Jews.
  • 17:59 But that--I think we have one country we missed, Josh.
  • 18:02 One country, Byblos and Tyre, which is modern-day Lebanon.
  • 18:10 ♪♪♪
  • 18:20 Caleb: And here we are at the Metula overlooking Leba--Josh,
  • 18:24 stop throwing rocks into Lebanon.
  • 18:26 Joshua: Sorry.
  • 18:27 Joshua: Are you kidding me?
  • 18:29 They get to shoot missiles and I can't throw a rock.
  • 18:30 Okay. What about David?
  • 18:32 You going to tell him no rocks?
  • 18:33 Caleb: All right.
  • 18:34 Lebanon is over there, one of the participants in the Psalm 83
  • 18:37 war; and Lebanon has long been used as a proxy vessel for any
  • 18:40 disgruntled terrorist regime in the Middle East,
  • 18:43 including the PLO in times past.
  • 18:45 But today it's Hezbollah, which is bankrolled by Iran.
  • 18:48 Now, since the spring 2023, Hezbollah and Syria and Hamas in
  • 18:53 Gaza have taken advantage of the political turmoil in Israel to
  • 18:56 fire off missiles into our country here.
  • 18:59 It's kind of sad.
  • 19:01 But you have reservists from the IDF that aren't showing up
  • 19:05 because of their stance on political reform and this is
  • 19:08 only embolden Israel's enemies, and right now the IDF are
  • 19:12 preparing for the event that an all-out war may occur
  • 19:15 with Lebanon.
  • 19:16 Joshua: Just 20 years ago the Psalm 83 war would have seemed
  • 19:19 impossible, but because of recent events like in 2005
  • 19:23 the Gaza disengagement set the stage,
  • 19:24 things like Obama's Arab Spring in 2011.
  • 19:28 So it's going to happen.
  • 19:31 Now, you ask yourself this question:
  • 19:33 Who's going to win the Psalm 83 war?
  • 19:34 Is God going to not protect his people?
  • 19:38 I think you know the answer to that already.
  • 19:40 So Asaph, he implores God to lay the smackdown on this coalition
  • 19:46 just one more time.
  • 19:47 Caleb: That's right.
  • 19:49 Joshua: Psalm 83:13 through 18,
  • 19:51 "O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
  • 19:53 like the chaff before the wind.
  • 19:56 Pursue them with Your tempest, and frighten them
  • 19:57 with Your storm.
  • 19:58 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek
  • 20:01 Your Name, O Lord.
  • 20:03 Let them be confounded and dismayed forever.
  • 20:05 Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
  • 20:08 that they may know that You, whose Name alone is the Lord,
  • 20:11 are the Most High over all the earth."
  • 20:14 Joshua: Guys, we want you to hear our hearts.
  • 20:16 We are not hating on the Arab people,
  • 20:18 neither was Asaph.
  • 20:19 He simply wanted what we want.
  • 20:21 We want them to meet the God of Abraham,
  • 20:23 Adonai, the one true God; to turn from the lie of Satan,
  • 20:26 which is Allah, and to join us together forever
  • 20:29 with the Father.
  • 20:31 Caleb: And although Asaph does implore the destruction of
  • 20:34 these nations, we see that there's prophetic fulfillment
  • 20:37 that God does take them out in these prophetic moments in
  • 20:41 Scriptures that are parallel prophecies such as Jeremiah 49,
  • 20:44 Ezekiel 25 and 28, Obadiah, Isaiah 17 and 19, Zephaniah 2.
  • 20:50 These parallel prophecies were fulfilled in a way when the rise
  • 20:54 of Babylon with Nebuchadnezzar, but you see specific terminology
  • 20:58 referring to in the last days, in the final times.
  • 21:01 So it's going to fulfill fully when God strengthens his people
  • 21:05 with supernatural favor to defeat their enemies.
  • 21:08 This is why we believe that the IDF is going to be used to
  • 21:11 defeat their enemy in the Psalm 83 war.
  • 21:14 Joshua: Now, take a look at a map and look at all the nations
  • 21:16 that are surrounding Israel.
  • 21:17 Now, Israel may defeat them, they may tear down the walls,
  • 21:20 there may be a reprieve, but at some point there's going to be
  • 21:22 an event called the rapture; and we believe that this event is
  • 21:25 going to cause, well, a power vacuum.
  • 21:27 This is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39.
  • 21:30 Caleb: Oh, Gog and Magog coming.
  • 21:31 And when Gog and Magog comes with that power vacuum that was
  • 21:35 left because of those Psalm 83 nations being subdued,
  • 21:38 then they can march on through to invade Israel.
  • 21:43 Guys, the moral of this whole message is simply this:
  • 21:46 Yeshua is coming soon.
  • 21:49 Matthew 24, he talks about wars and rumors of wars
  • 21:52 and these birth pains that we're living in right now.
  • 21:56 This must occur before we reach the end of our roadmap
  • 22:01 to Armageddon.
  • 22:03 ♪♪♪
  • 22:12 Joshua: I've said it so many times about Israel.
  • 22:13 Learning, reading, studying the Scripture in Israel is so much
  • 22:17 more visceral.
  • 22:19 Everybody's been talking about Psalm 83 war,
  • 22:21 but going where everything's going to happen and revisiting
  • 22:24 the Scripture is amazing.
  • 22:25 Caleb: Well, we want to speak to an expert concerning the
  • 22:27 Psalm 83 war: Bill Salus, a famous author that brought it to
  • 22:30 light over two decades ago.
  • 22:32 You're going to want to hear what he has to say about this.
  • 22:35 Caleb: Bill, you are an expert on Psalm 83,
  • 22:38 and the big question is what happens to Gaza.
  • 22:40 I know that was originally the territory of Judah.
  • 22:43 Is there any kind of prophetic end to Gaza that you see
  • 22:46 in the near future?
  • 22:47 Bill Salus: Well, there's actually a few guides
  • 22:49 of prophecies.
  • 22:51 I'm going to read a couple of them to you because these could
  • 22:53 actually be involved in the Psalm 83 prophecy because
  • 22:56 Felicia is part of the Psalm 83 confederacy.
  • 23:00 Isaiah 11, verse 14 it says, "But they--" And I believe that
  • 23:05 could be referring to the Israeli Air Force.
  • 23:08 "They shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines."
  • 23:11 They shall fly down upon them.
  • 23:13 They will move toward the west.
  • 23:16 That's of course where Gaza would be,
  • 23:18 western--southern western part of Israel.
  • 23:21 "Together they shall plunder the people of the East."
  • 23:23 Perhaps that could be Syria and Iraq.
  • 23:25 "They shall lay their hand on Edom," southern Jordan,
  • 23:30 "and Moab," central Jordan, "and the people of Ammon," northern
  • 23:33 Jordan, "shall obey them."
  • 23:35 So it looks like we could have the air force attacking
  • 23:37 the Gaza.
  • 23:39 That could be what's being said there.
  • 23:40 Then it goes on to say--it says in Zephaniah 2,
  • 23:43 verses 4 through 7 it says, "For Gaza is going to be forsaken.
  • 23:47 The word of the Lord is against you,
  • 23:50 O Canaan, land of the Philistines: "I will destroy
  • 23:53 you; so there will be no inhabitant.'"
  • 23:56 So ultimately we're going to be saying goodbye to the Hamas
  • 23:59 and the Gaza.
  • 24:01 "The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah."
  • 24:04 So Judah is going to get that area that's part of their
  • 24:06 tribal territory.
  • 24:07 "They shall feed their flocks there.
  • 24:09 In the houses of Ashkelon, they shall lie in the evening,
  • 24:12 for the Lord their God will intervene for them and return
  • 24:16 their captives."
  • 24:20 David: Kirsten and I have been to Israel 15 times.
  • 24:23 Joshua, you've been how many?
  • 24:25 Joshua: Four.
  • 24:27 David: Four times? Okay.
  • 24:28 This was your first time to Israel.
  • 24:30 I feel like I need to apologize for what you've been through for
  • 24:32 your very first experience in Israel.
  • 24:35 Caleb: Well, it was different.
  • 24:37 It was amazing.
  • 24:39 Most people don't know we were there on October 7, 2023
  • 24:41 when the war with Hamas broke out;
  • 24:44 but God ordained that time for us to be there,
  • 24:46 and we did amazing things for the Lord there on social media.
  • 24:49 But many people were asking us during this time,
  • 24:52 is this the Psalm 83 war?
  • 24:54 That's concurring, is it done?
  • 24:58 There are steps that led up to it that look like it.
  • 25:01 You know, you had Gaza, which were the Philistines.
  • 25:03 You have the north Syria.
  • 25:06 You know, they were shooting up, taking potshots at Israel.
  • 25:10 You had Lebanon, Byblos, Hezbollah;
  • 25:13 you know, all those countries that could
  • 25:15 have been represented.
  • 25:16 You have a tense of Edom in the West Bank.
  • 25:18 There's a lot of struggle riling up from those Arabs there.
  • 25:21 But you didn't see that full coalition,
  • 25:24 the Ishmaelites and Edomites joining together with this
  • 25:27 ma--Jordan wasn't involved.
  • 25:29 Saudi Arabia wasn't involved.
  • 25:30 So it wasn't quite the fulfillment,
  • 25:32 but I do believe it prophetically set
  • 25:35 the stage for that conflict to come.
  • 25:36 It's no small thing that that happened.
  • 25:38 Kirsten Hart: On the 7th. Right.
  • 25:40 And then it just starts escalating.
  • 25:42 I just have to say, you know, it's almost they equate it to
  • 25:45 the 9/11, and it is a date.
  • 25:48 What horrific Shabbat in Israel, a date that
  • 25:53 we will remember forever.
  • 25:54 Joshua: If you can imagine being there when that happened
  • 25:57 and it be in the 9/11.
  • 25:59 These are the birth pains, the issue it talks about
  • 26:01 in Matthew 24.
  • 26:02 So if those are just the pains, the intensity of what will come
  • 26:05 in Psalm 83 and everything that happens after that I can't even
  • 26:08 imagine what's going to happen.
  • 26:10 God blessed us and protected us.
  • 26:11 If our schedule had been flipped in any way,
  • 26:12 we couldn't have filmed this series because every place that
  • 26:15 was attacked we would have been right there in the
  • 26:16 middle of the attack.
  • 26:18 Like God rescued us and he saved us,
  • 26:20 and we want you guys at home to continue to pray for Israel
  • 26:22 regardless of where this moment is for them.
  • 26:27 The rebuilding, the lives that were lost,
  • 26:28 the pain, the fear.
  • 26:30 This is something that's going to cause devastation for much
  • 26:33 longer than the length of this war,
  • 26:35 and we need you guys to intercede on behalf of them that
  • 26:38 God restores them and brings full healing.
  • 26:40 Kirsten: Amen. We have more to come.
  • 26:41 Stay with us.
  • 26:45 David: Our resource this week,
  • 26:48 the book "The Iranian Menace in Jewish History and Prophecy"
  • 26:52 by Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 26:53 As Iran continues to capture the world's attention with threats
  • 26:57 and tactical support of Israel's enemies,
  • 27:00 Dr. Seif uses scriptural and secular evidence to support his
  • 27:03 case for the Iranian-Armageddon connection.

  • 27:14 David: We hope you will stay with us through
  • 27:16 this whole series.
  • 27:17 It's really like a roller coaster ride;
  • 27:19 ups and downs, good and bad.
  • 27:22 What's coming up next week?
  • 27:24 Joshua: Next week isn't necessarily more popular.
  • 27:26 We're going to talk about the rapture, this harpazo.

  • 27:32 And so we're going to discuss it and show them a version that
