The war to come – Jordan follows Edom

Author Stephen Pidgeon - Wednesday, February 11, 2015


The discussion in the Cepher Amoc concerning a nation we now call Jordan is a two-fold discussion, because Jordan is a two-fold nation; the joining of Ammon (northern Jordan) and Mo’av (southern Jordan).  Therefore, two prophecies are present in Amoc. 

Amoc (Amos) 1:13-15

Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gil`ad, that they might enlarge their border: 14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind: 15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, says YAHUAH.

This is a difficult prophecy, for the King of Jordan is acting the hero in the current day, personally going after ISIS for the barbaric slaughter of a Jordanian pilot by fire. Yet the prophecy is such that a fire will be kindled in the wall of Rabbah; that there shall be a day of battle; and a tempest in the day of the whirlwind.

This judgment comes upon Jordan and its King – a king who shall go into exile – because they have ripped up the women with child of Gil`ad, that they might enlarge their border.

Without going into a great deal of detail, the Balfour Declaration made a political division of an area under British control known as the Trans-Jordan (the Levant) following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1917.  This created a two-state solution where the Arab peoples of the region would have political autonomy over the lands east of the Jordan River, and the Jewish peoples would have political autonomy over the lands west of the Jordan. 

By the time the Europeans (who would go on to condone the slaughter of every European Jew they could round up) considered the issue, the Arabs of the region were given all of the land east of the Jordan, and a two-state solution over the land west of the Jordan.  This denied the Jews access to the city of Jerusalem and the most holy sites in Judaism, the city of Hebron and the second most holy site in Judaism which is the Ma’arat Machpelah (the tomb of Avraham, Yitschaq, and Ya’aqov), and the city of Shechchem, the third most sacred site which includes the Tomb of Yoceph (now defiled).

While at the time, the western lands were essentially desolate, with Jerusalem housing fewer than 25,000 people, the understanding was reached by the nations surrounding Israel that should the Jews follow UN edict S. 181, which authorized the creation of a Jewish state, then there would be immediate and conclusive war which would exterminate all Jewish claims over the land.  When defeat ensued, the Jordanians elected to embark on a strategy to populate the western lands with people who would later come to be called Palestinians, and to enlarge the border of Jordan to include the “West Bank” of Israel, and the sacred sites of Judaism held in the Holy Land.

It is for this reason that the King of Jordan will ultimately go into exile.  This shall occur during the day of the whirlwind. Consider this discussion in Mishlei.

Mishlei (Proverbs) 1:7-9

The fear of YAHUAH is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 8 My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the Torah of your mother: 9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto your head, and chains about your neck.

Mishlei (Proverbs) 1:20-33

Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets: 21 She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she utters her words, saying, 22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my RUACH unto you, I will make known my words unto you. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes; 27 When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of YAHUAH: 30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. 33 But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

There remains more to this prophecy in Amoc, however:

Amoc (Amos) 2:1-3

THUS says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Mo’av, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime: 2 But I will send a fire upon Mo’av, and it shall devour the palaces of Qeriyoth: and Mo’av shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the shofar: 3 And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, says YAHUAH.

Let us consider this statement that Mo’av burned the bones (ehtsem) of the king of Edom into lime (siyd).  This term ehstem which is correctly translated as bones, can also mean the structural (or skeletal) strength.  This term siyd means lime or plaster.  From one view, then, the verse can mean that Mo’av kindled a fire under the structural strength of the king of Edom, whose strength then became nothing more than a thin plaster-like covering; i.e., a façade. 

The outlook for southern Jordan is not as good as it is for northern Jordan, for a fire will be sent upon its palaces and Mo’av shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the shofar. The judge will be cut off, and all of the princes shall be slain.  The King, in the meantime, will be in exile. 

We note, in closing, that this destruction on Mo’av happens at the time of shouting and the sound of the shofar, which is a dating, namely on Yom Teruah (the Feast of Trumpets), also known as Rosh Hashanah.  This judgment may come very, very soon.
