Time-That-Is-To-Come of the War of Psalm 83
This is a prerequisite war to the War of Ezekiel 38-39, because the victorious expansion of Israel to a fuller possession of their covenant land will perhaps be the reason they will be dwelling in unwalled cities during the Ezekiel War.
Time-That-Is-To-Come of the War of Ezekiel 38-39
Russia, Iran, Libya, and other Muslim countries will invade Israel, and cover the Ancient Heights of the Patriarchs [so-called West Bank]. This war will not be won by the IDF or by American intervention, but only by the hand of God through earthquakes and hail and brimstone. We can know that this will happen before the 7-year Tribulation, because there will be so many of these enemies slain in this war that the prophet said it will take seven years for the Israelis to deal with the bodies and ordinance. During the last three and one-half years of the Trib, the Israelis will be in Bozrah [Petra], hiding out, not cleaning up after any war. Therefore, this war must start at least three and one-half years before the Trib.
Time-That-Is-To-Come of the PreTrib Rapture of the Church
The rapture of the church is imminent - that is, there is no other prophetic event that must occur before it can happen. It could happen before, during, or after the wars mentioned above. The raptured church saints will be caught up before the Tribulation, because they will be coming back with the LORD at His glorious appearing at the end of the Trib. When the LORD comes for the church, only they will see Him. At His glorious appearing, all the world will see Him. This catching up of the church should not be confused with the gathering of the saints who have come to faith during the Tribulation and have escaped martrydom. No change of the body is mentioned in that gathering and shows why there will be need for there to be a tree whose leaves are for healing during the Millennial Reign of Christ.
***“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I [Yeshua] would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am (John 14:2-3 NIV).”***
***“Listen, I [Paul] tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed - in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed (1 Cor.15:51-52 NIV).”***
***“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words (1 Thess. 4:13-18 NIV).”***
