Israel and Egypt Devastate Lebanon and Gaza
Jeremiah 47:1, 4-7~
word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the
Philistines, before that Pharaoh smote Gaza ...
Because of the day that cometh to spoil all the Philistines, and to cut off from Tyre and Sidon every helper that
remaineth: for the LORD will spoil the Philistines, the remnant of the country of Caphtor. Baldness is come
upon Gaza; Ashkelon is cut off with the remnant of their valley: how long wilt thou cut thyself?
thou sword of the LORD, how long will it be ere thou be quiet?
put up thyself into thy scabbard, rest, and be still.
How can it be quiet, seeing the LORD hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore?
there hath he appointed it.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED: 5/13/09: At first glance it might appear that the war in Gaza of December 2008/January 2009 was the fulfilment of the above prophecy of Jeremiah, until we realise that this war is far more wide-reaching in scope since it also includes the whole of Lebanon and has Egypt fighting alongside Israel against Hamas and Hezbollah. Clearly this is what the war in Gaza could have escalated into. One might even say the war in Gaza and Lebanon that occurred in July 2006 came very close to this also, but not quite where Egypt's role was concerned.
If Jeremiah's prophecies are followed sequentially from this point, we fairly quickly arrive at a point where Jordan is attacked and largely destroyed by an Iraqi leader allied to Iran and a war is fought between Israel and Syria culminating in the nuclear destruction of Damascus and other Syrian cities. And it gets even worse as we progress through Jeremiah's prophecies.
The above event has a base 7 dating of March/April 2009, which has passed, but it would be foolish to think that it cannot happen at any time this spring or summer. If it does, it would mark a renewal of the war in Gaza and the beginning of World War III in the Middle East.
