GOD THE MESSIAH CRUSHES JORDAN

In Daniel 11:41, we see that Edom, Moab, and Ammon

(which is occupied by modern day Jordan) escape out of the

Antichrist’s hand. Perhaps because the Jordanian Arabs are

much like him, they join the destroyer in an alliance.

“‘Come,’

they say, ‘let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Is-

rael be remembered no more.’ With one mind they plot to-

gether; they form an alliance against you; the tents of Edom

and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal, Ammon

and Amalek”

(Psalm 83:4-7).

In reality, the Jordanians are not spared just because it was

in the destroyer’s mind to do so (for he is only a tool under

God’s sovereignty), but because God Himself Jesus Christ will

at His return be the sole judge of these Jordanians. Jesus

Christ, who is, “the Root and the Offspring of David, and the

bright Morning Star (Rev. 22:16),” will slaughter them Himself

for destroying His people, the Jews; at the same time He will

fulfill this prophecy:

“A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Is-

rael. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the

sons of Sheth. Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will

be conquered, but Israel will grow strong”

(Num. 24:17-18).

Christ, the bright Morning Star, who comes out of Jacob

(or from his portion) is called The Lord Almighty:

“He who is

the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all

things, including the tribe of his inheritance; the Lord Almighty

is his name”

(Jer. 51:19).
