According to the end time prophecy in Psalm 83, a confederacy of Arab nations, "united in their plans," saying: "Come, let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence." See http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...83;&version=78; , http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...83;&version=51; http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...83;&version=50; .

Do you agree or disagree that this prophecy is forming today?

Greetings, PrestonM: I completely disagree. Have you considered the entire context of Psalm 83 to ascertain who these Arab nations are? Are they modern Arabs nations?

Who makes up this "confederacy" Asaph speaks of in Psalm 83:5b-8)? Who is it that spoke the words "Come, and let US cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more."

"They form a confederacy against You;
the tents of EDOM and the ISHMAELITES;
MOAB and the HAGRITES;
GEBAL, AMMON, and AMALEK;
PHILISTIA with the inhabitants of TYRE;
ASSYRIA also has joined THEM;
They have helped the children of LOT."

This is not speaking of the modern Arab world but those of the OT times!

Greetings, Preterist. It's good to read your comment. Indeed, Psalm 83 is an end time prophecy "speaking" in "the OT times!"

Hi, PrestonM: What is "end time prophecy?" The Bible speaks of the "time of the end" and the "end of the age"--where is the end times? Where in Psalm 83 does Asaph mention "end time prophecy?" Thanks.
