    Default U.S. troops landing in Jordan

    Some 1,000 American troops have arrived at the Jordanian port city of Aquba on June 4, 2013 and they will be stationed on the Jordanian Syrian border.

    I wonder which Aroer the prophet Isaiah is talking about. (Isaiah 17:2) I pray our troops are not in harms way. (Jordan Aroer, Syrian Aroer or Israeli Aroer)

    We should also pray for the people of Damascus and Ephraim (central Israel) that they leave these areas and save their lives. (Isaiah 17:1 and Isaiah 17:3)

    It's the bulk of the 24th MEU that has landed with advance columns going north on Highway 65 on a 180-190 mile movement into "the cities of Aroer" (i.e. the Jordanian governorates of Jarash and Ajloun in the extreme northwestern part of the country).

    Pray for them indeed!

    Training Jordanian troops? Peace keeping? Combat posturing? I don't know much about how the USMC operates but it seems odd that an MEU would be sent for anything other than possible combat.

    Defending Jordan from Syrian civil war spill-over as is occurring in Lebanon.

    N.A.T.O. is protecting a member nation Turkey north of Syria, while the United States is protecting Jordan south of Syria. Turkey is not mentioned in the Isaiah 17 prophecy.

    Many nations will come against Israel. (Isaiah 17:13) They shall be chased like chaff of the mountains before the wind.

    Who are these nations? Psalms 83:13 says God will make them as stubble before the wind.

    Does this mean the Shites and the Sunni will quit fighting at some point and turn their guns upon Israel completing Isaiah 17:1-14 & Psalms 83:1-18 prophecy AT THE VERY SAME TIME?

    Or do we see Assad fall from power as I have previous thought then the Sunni Arabs attack Israel?

    United States troops if in the region at the time of these wars in the Moslem people's eyes they will consider these wars a joint U.S. and Israeli operation where they say Big Satan and Little Satan have gotten together to defeat them.

    The United States will likely be ruled out as a world peacekeeper opening the door for a European anti-Christ After the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel 38/39 chapters to be the world's peace keeper.

    Its just my opinion. What is yours?

    Yes, in Psalm 83 the peoples identified by Asaph, the cymbalist and (Hebrew: chozeh: seer, prophet) singer of sacred prophetic songs, are members of both the Sunni and Shi'a sects in submission to the false god allah.

    Lujack: Will the Shites and Sunnis at some time quit fighting each other and turn their guns on Israel completing the Isaiah 17:1-14 and Psalms 83:1-18 prophecies AT THE VERY SAME TIME?

    Lujack: Assad just a few weeks ago stated anyone wanting to fight Israel could join in the fight to take over the Golan Heights. This seems like his first invitation to have Sunni and Shite forces fight against Israel.

    It seems like these prophecies can be fulfilled in a very short time. The attitude Egypt's Moslem Brotherhood has for Israel, the Palestinians in Gaza, Samaria, Judea and Jordan all wanting Israel's demise, Syrians on both sides of the religious divide wanting back the Golan Heights and the Lebanese wanting to stop Israeli flights over their nation.

    Prophecy seems to be taking another giant step forward so we must seriously pray for the people in Damascus, Aroer, Ephraim (central Israel) and all other places that they take God's prophecies seriously and leave those areas which will be under direct attack and doing so will likely save their lives.

    Glad PM Benjamin Netanyahu is in charge of Israel's government and not Tipsi Livni!

    Pray Re: U.S. troops landing in Jordan

    At first glance I saw the word "troops" in this post and was not too concerned. However when I saw the MEU posted my heart sank as being the father of a combat marine I know what this means. The marines are the point of the spear, so to speak, meaning they are not their to hand out flowers and candy to the inhabitants even though they may make it look as if that is their purpose. This concerns me as I know and love many of my son's brothers and would like to find confirmation about this. Also my son was contacted last night by officials inquiring about his overall health.

    My family and I can't go thru that again .... prayers.

    Here is where a truly critical eschatological distinction occurs in the Psalm 83 prophecy that bears our full attention.

    This is a distinction that separates Psalm 83 from Isaiah 17, and provides the primary sequential prophetic indicator that Isaiah 17, specifically the destruction of Damascus and of Aram-Syria as a nation, precedes the final "inner ring" battle against Israel prophesied by Asaph in Psalm 83.

    Isaiah 11 also specifically names Assyria and not Aram-Syria in the same prophetic context. God in His prophetic narrative to Ezekiel in Chapter 28 references Lebanon and its destruction as well as the other "all who are around them, who despise them" "inner ring" enemies, wherein God says he will "execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God."

    But there is no specific mention of Aram-Syria or of its ages-old and near-perpetual capital city Damascus.

    No where in Psalm 83 is Aram-Syria mentioned by the singing prophet Asaph. Get that - Syria is not a specifically identified participant in the "inner ring" conspiracy to cause Israel's destruction. Isaiah 17 happens first.

    However, in verse 8, Asshur is mentioned as being a source of strength or assistance to the "children of Lot", (i.e. modern-day Jordan).

    Asshur is not Aram-Syria, in this age it is Sunni Islamic Iraq. Asshur at the time Asaph wrote Psalm 83 (circa 3,000 years ago or 1,000 BC) was a rump of its former size and power centered in the same region as Saddam Hussein's family and tribal clan live today (Tikrit, Samara, Balad, and al-Faluja, what we called "the Sunni Triangle during Operation Iraqi Freedom).

    Also note that except for Ezekiel 38/39 there is also no mention of Persia (Iran) in these preceding wars involving Syria (Isaiah 17) or Lebanon (Psalm 83 and Joshua 13:1-7). When Iran does appear its in a secondary, supporting military role to the major powers to the north in the Russian Caucasus and Federation and Central Asian Republics. So, what must have occurred to sever the essential alliance between Persia/Iran and Hezbollah/Lebanon and Aram/Syria? Something very significant that's for sure! See what Jeremiah 49 might have to say about all this.

    The Iraq-Jordan linkage in the continuous war against Israel since November 1947 is a matter of historical record.

    Yes, prayers always. It's all in the Lord's hands.

    With respect to your looking for confirmation... I have done some digging and asking around. Based upon what I have gathered thus far I do not believe it was the 24th MEU that landed at Aqaba.

    I'm now 99.9% sure that it was the 26th MEU that disembarked from the USS Kearsarge (LHD-3). The 26th MEU is designated as a SOC Marine Corps unit meaning that it is "Special Operations Capable."

    This unit was ashore in neighboring Eilat, Israel in the middle of May (three weeks ago) where they participated in a public relations- cultural exchange program in Eilat with Israeli kids aged 13 to 16 years old.

    Two weeks later they were back afloat in the Gulf of Aden. I have a photograph of LHD-3 in the Gulf of Aden recovering a LCAC hovercraft on 30 MAY 2013 in its well deck.


    Posted 6/1/2013

    Photo Caption: GULF OF ADEN (May 30, 2013) A landing craft air cushion (LCAC) enters the well deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3). Kearsarge is the flagship for the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group and, with the embarked 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, is deployed supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Corbin J. Shea)

    This is the only MEU currently in a position to have landed at Aqaba, Jordan.

    For the obvious OPSEC reasons I am not going to pursue or post further information unless it comes from a Marine Corps PAO.

    Syrian ambassador to Jordan says Syrian missles can target Patriot missles. Jordan threatens to expel Syrian ambassador. (Jerusalem Post)

    Muhammad Shalabi Jihadist leader in Jordan calls for Jihad against Hezbollah.

    Al-Qaida leader Zahahri calls on Syrians to bring down Assad, thwart U.S. plans to set up a client state in Syria to safeguard Israel's security.

    Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Sheik Saudi Arabia's highest religious leader calls for action to be taken against Hezbollah.

    Assad and Hezbollah at this writing have made more Sunni enemies.
