Gog and Magog?

Many believe Psalm 83 predicts a future war between Israel and a coalition of Arab-Islamic nations surrounding it. Here is the list of the nations from Psalm 83 and their modern-day descendants:

5 For they have consulted together with one consent;

They form a confederacy against You:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;

Moab and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;

Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also has joined with them;

They have helped the children of Lot. Selah

Edom, descendants of Esau (Jacob’s son) – southern Jordan and Edom = Idumeans = modern Palestinian Arabs (Gaza, West Bank, Refugees): Palestinians/Jordanians

Ishmaelites, descendants of Ishmael (Abraham’s son) – northern Arabia: Saudi Arabia

Moab, descendants of Moab (Lot’s son) – Jordan: Palestinians/Jordanians

Hagrites, east of the Jordan river – Jordan: Palestinians/Jordan

Byblos – also “Gebal”, north of Tyre and Sidon in Lebanon: Lebanese/Hezbollah

Ammon, descendants of Ammon (Lot’s son) – Jordan: Palestinians/Jordanians

Amalek, descendants of Amalek (Esau’s grandson) – S. Israel/Sinai: Palestinians/Egypt

Philistia - Palestinians, Hamas/(Al-Qaida?)

People of Tyre (Lebanon area): Hezbollah

Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants: Syria

The difference between the Psalm 83 War and the Gog and Magog war is that the former is a coalition and the latter is primarily led and participated in by Gog and Magog located in modern-day Turkey.

Could we be watching prophecy come to pass? I'll let you know when we get there!
