Psalm 83 and Islam

By Walid Shoebat

Before reading the below, please watch this video clip of Psalm 83 which depicts the events that are unfolding before our eyes!

I lived it (Psalm 83) during the Six Day War when, a few days prior, we were demonstrating in favor of Gamal Abd Al-Nasser the prime minister of Egypt who called for the destruction of Israel - and just within hours before the battle and before even a bullet was fired - we were shocked to see everyone fleeing. People piled up in cars or ran on foot across the Jordan River. Why? No one knows but, simply put, FEAR struck their hearts as Arab media announced that they were going to blow everything up so it was better for everyone to flee to Jordan.

Look at the verses of Psalm 83 carefully; they are SO ACCURATE and most people do not pay attention to each word:

"So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm." (v15)

There is only ONE element which caused Israel to win and it was definitely not their strength since the Arab armies were outnumbered 100 to 1 and 100 to 1 in weapons. The reason the Arabs lost the war was the fear factor.

Now in Psalm 81 there is an interesting verse:

"The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him, But their fate would endure forever " (v15)

So it's speaking of a people who hate God when they think in their mind that they submit to God. The word "Muslims" means "submitters to God"; Islam means "submission".

In essence, when one read Psalm 83:2 "For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head." What this is saying is that the enemies in this Psalm (Ishmaelites, Hagarites, Assyrians, Lot, Edom, and the people of Tyre) who think in their minds they submit to God, in reality are full of pride and indeed are haters of God.

Notice also that this prophecy is future - that the punishment would be forever; it would be at the end of days. So, in reality Psalm 83 has NOT been fully fulfilled; there is another event that must happen in order for it to be fully be fulfilled. Here are my reasons:

"That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth. " (Psalm 83:18)

The reason God will allow Israel to be victorious is one reason: to witness with tough love to the Arabs and Muslims. I am one of few who followed this verse, but five-sixths of the future armies will perish and the one-sixth remainder will recognize the God of Israel.

Notice on the clip they took great care to interpret the nations. This is why I love the clip; it's the first I've seen which included TURKEY. Look at it again.

Why did they do that? Simply put, Assyria included Turkey; not only Syria and Iraq. So we have a future showdown with Turkey when Messiah comes.

Listen: we had a Six Day War. This is significant and the church is asleep at the wheels. There is ONE day left to make it seven - the Day of the Lord. We will have a ONE DAY WAR which will be called "The Battle over Jerusalem" in which believers will fight. In all the context of the day of the Lord he has an army and a camp with bodies that cannot be destroyed. This is in Joel chapter 2: "...a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it" (v2) These are people, human beings.

"Though they lunge between the weapons, They are not cut down" - Definitely only once that a people cannot be cut down (killed) is in their glorified body state. On that day it's "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." (v31)

And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp [is] very great" (v11) Who is this army? The people who have glorified bodies!

"...let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet." (v16-b) When will this happen? When we meet the Lord; where else will the bridegroom (Messiah) meet the bride?

"And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered" (v32)

I know of no one even looking at these things!

Now back to Psalm 83 - "Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna" (verse 11)

Messiah is compared to Gideon who is an interesting character; he represents the War Messiah. This story is documented in Judges 8: "So Gideon arose and killed Zebah and Zalmunna, and took the crescent ornaments that were on their camels' necks." (Judges 8:21)

This the Messiah will do as well. Look at Turkey and many Muslim flags, their symbol is what? A crescent moon. Look at every Muslim country and mosque - the crescent is at the highest point.

If you doubt what I am saying, then look at this verse which will put any doubts at ease; the clue comes from Isaiah:

"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth [in] righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear...." (Isaiah 45:23)

This is the famous "every knee will bow", yet most Christians never study the rest. Look at two verses after that:

"Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle" (Isaiah 46:1)

What was on the beasts and cattle? Crescent moons. This will bow, and God calls it Bel.

One of the greatest authors of Islamic history is Arthur Jeffrey. Here are some of his quotes:

"Allah is a pre-Islamic name corresponding to the Babylonian god known as Bel".

Allah is the moon god of Babylonia - Bel. This symbol will bow. In other words all minarets with crescents on top will be taken down - to bow.

Mystery Babylon is NOT Rome as popularly thought or the Catholic Church, but Islam and Arabia. Do a search on Arabia in the Bible and see for yourself, then do a search on Rome and you will see about 15 hits with not one instance of a punishment.

Now, Galatians 4 has some interesting verses:

"Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar."

"For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia"

Why Arabia? Why does bondage, slavery, submission, and false faith come out of Arabia? Isn't submission [Islam] the same as bondage?

Because the author of Galatians was a prophet - he was predicting the bottom line. "So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free."

So I got out of Islam/bondage/desert/empty/hagar and I joined the free woman Sarah/Israel/Messiah!

Woman is always allegoric of a faith or a people. Israel is called a woman, we are called the bride, a woman; our faith in Galatians is described as a woman. Yet, they argue that "the woman riding the beast" is the Catholic Church because they honor Mary - a woman.


Arabia is what was predicted all along and is what causes all the hell we live in. After all, didn't the Euro fall a bit as a result of Muslims causing havoc in France in early November 2005? Where did Islam come from - the BOND woman - Arabia. Don't all the kings of the earth sleep in bed with Arabia? Who is the most favorite harlot for President Bush - Arabia or Rome? What wine is the favored wine - the Oil of Arabia or the Pope's Chalice? Why would Evangelicals say that Rome is the harlot, then run to watch The Passion of the Christ produced by a Catholic with some Catholic dogma in it?

Now we come to the conclusion of the Psalm:

"That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth." (Psalm 83:18)

Look at that verse above carefully. Do you know what Muslims battle cry in every battle, victory, or demonstration is? Does the term "Allah Akbar" ring a bell? What does it mean? It means: "Allah is Greater". Greater than who? Greater than any God, especially the God of the Jews and the Christians. Allah Akbar means that Allah is the most high - the greatest.

This is blasphemy!

So, what is the essence of Psalm 83? It is verse 18, that men may know that only JEHOVAH'S NAME is the most high and NOT Allah.

Allah Akbar is a great blasphemy:

"And he [Antichrist] opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. " (Rev 13:6)

What is in a name?

"...they shall call his name Emmanuel," which being interpreted is, "God with us".

A name has an interpretation; it is significant - it's a title and not simply a name. Jesus' name is not Emmanuel per say, but it's a message - God is with us!

What do Muslims deny? They deny that God came to visit earth; they deny the Son and Father and the Holy spirit are all God - ONE GOD:

"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. " (1 John 2:22)

Muslims are vehement in denying the attributes of the God of the Bible. As a matter of fact, the SOLE purpose of Islam is to supposedly restore God's attribute specifically to deny what Christians say about God - that Jesus is God, or part of the "trinity". This is the first issue every Muslim will argue over.

What does this mean? It means the Antichrist cannot be Jew since the Jewish faith does not deny Abba (Our Father), or the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha-Qudesh)! In other words, the essence of this Psalm is that God will restore to the world His name and His essence, and His attributes where everyone will finally recognize His Name.

About The Author

Born in Bethlehem of Judea, Walid's grandfather was the Muslim Mukhtar (chieftain) of Beit Sahour-Bethlehem (The Shepherd's Fields) and a friend of Haj-Ameen Al-Husseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and notorious friend of Adolf Hitler.

As a young man, he became a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel, and was later imprisoned in the Russian Compound, Jerusalem's central prison for incitement and violence against Israel.

In 1993, Walid studied the Tanach (Jewish Bible) in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam. Six months later, after intense study, Walid realized that everything he had been taught about Jews was a lie. Convinced he was on the side of evil, he became an advocate for his former enemy.

Driven by a deep passion to heal his own soul, and to bring the truth about the Jews and Israel to the world, Walid shed his former life and his work as a software engineer and set out to tirelessly bring the cause of Israel to tens of thousands of people throughout the world: churches and synagogues, civic groups, government leaders and media.

Walid's latest book is titled "God's War on Terror" available now.

The Origin of The Antichrist - Part II

By Ray Gano

Well this is another large 40+ page special OPEN issue of the PZ Insider Report.

Like the prior special issue addressing this debate, we are opening up this issue for all and enableing everyone to download this special PDF.


About a month ago Dr. David Reagan put out a “book review.”

What many people considered it actually, was a personal attack on some brothers in Christ.

READ NOW - Dr Reagan's Article >>>

After David Reagan’s Jan / Feb issue of Lamplighter was published, we provided space for the authors to refute what David said.

Joel Richardson as well as Walid Shoebat responded. Emails were sent to the other authors.

If you missed thier responces, you can read them here>>>

READ NOW - Joel Richardson's Responce >>>

READ NOW - Walid Shoebat's Responce>>>

This past weekend I heard from Phillip Goodman, author of “The Assyrian Connection” asking me if I would include his response to David Reagan.

Like I have mentioned in the past, we at Prophezine try to be “neutral ground” where authors can come and present their views. We support the Watchmen on the Wall and promote many great ministries out there.

Rodrigo Silva who runs “The Beast from the East” website has also been involved with this discussion and the promotion of the “Eastern Leg” ideal. I have included his very well documented argument in support of the Eastern Leg of the Roman Empire in this special issue also.

All four of these men have gone above and beyond in showing factual, historical proof as well as very strong scriptural evidence in support of this ideal. They all have strongly and gracefully refuted Dr. Reagan’s allegations as well as what is appearing to be very poor research on Dr.Reagan's part.

Folks we can believe what we may, but when fact and historical documentation is presented, it is only right that we as watchmen on the wall honestly weigh this evidence. Not weigh it with some preconceived ideas, notions or teachings of man which in fact may be in error.

We must apply proper biblical hermeneutics, maintaining context and author intent.

I fear that there are those out there that refuse to look at the evidence in a honest light, but instead based upon what they have been taught, use that as the filter instead the Word of God, the Historical fact and proper interpretation.

We must strive for the truth, continually putting the theories into the fire and burn away the incorrect findings.

If we are not willing to truly examine the evidence, then all we become are just a bunch of “YES” men to teachers.

The four authors have presented strong enough evidence that being a watchman on the wall, it is my duty to examine it.

I am reminded of the following…

2 Timothy 3:1-7 (KJV) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:13 (KJV) But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (KJV) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

If we are not willing to examine evidence that is presented properly, we run the risk in falling into what Paul warned young Timothy about.

The blood of innocent is upon the hands of the watchmen, we must be diligent in our duties and ensure that what we are warning about is correct.

Daniel tells us that God told him to seal up the book till the end times where many will run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased. (Dan 12:4)

Folks, we are in fact living in the last days. I feel that God has been revealing the knowledge that was once sealed up.

The problem is; if we are not willing to justly and honestly examine evidence presented, then we will fall prey to the itching ears and deceitful teachers that Paul warned us about.

Me, I take my job seriously and I work hard to search the scriptures daily to see if what is being said is true.

I challenge you to do the same.

With that I am honored to present the following article is this special issue of The PZ Insider Report.

Debunking the European Antichrist

By Rodrigo Silva

Continue to keep us in prayer. Please pray that God helps to keep us humble and that we continue to do right in His eyes and not the eyes of men. Pray that we not lean on our own understanding and that in everything we do we give God the honor and glory which all is due to Him alone and not to us.

Pray that we get more PZ Insiders and that this year we make even more of a difference for His kingdom taking the gospel to the entire world and sharing the blessed hope of our Lord’s soon return.

He Rides a Black Horse

By Ray Gano

In the last several months I have been seeing a drastic increase in the cost of food. Milk is sitting at $4.25 a gallon, Cheese has gone up $2.00 for a quarter pound block and butter is sitting at $4.65 a box.

Folks, we are coming to the end of the age. We are beginning to see the foundations that have been put in place, start to take effect.

During the tribulation we know that food will become scarce and the cost will sky rocket.

We read in Revelation 6:5-6…

Revelation 6:5 – 6 (KJV) And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Christ himself stated..

Matthew 24:8 (KJV) All these are the beginning of sorrows.

In this Christ was speaking of wars, rumors of wars, false Christ’s, earthquakes, famines, pestilences. He was speaking about now, the end of the age.

Matthew 24:7 (KJV) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

When one does a study on this verse we learn that he is using verbiage which equates to that of a woman about to give birth, or the birth pangs as it is commonly stated.

Birth pangs do not slow down, ask any mother, she will attest to the fact that they increase in strength and timing. They get harder and more painful as well as coming more frequently.

That is exactly what we are seeing today, read on…

Forget Oil, the New Global Crisis is Food

BMO strategist Donald Coxe warns credit crunch and soaring oil prices will pale in comparison to looming catastrophe.

A new crisis is emerging, a global food catastrophe that will reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen. The credit crunch and the reverberations of soaring oil prices around the world will pale in comparison to what is about to transpire, Donald Coxe, global portfolio strategist at BMO Financial Group said at the Empire Club's 14th annual investment outlook in Toronto on Thursday.

"It's not a matter of if, but when," he warned investors. "It's going to hit this year hard."

Mr. Coxe said the sharp rise in raw food prices in the past year will intensify in the next few years amid increased demand for meat and dairy products from the growing middle classes of countries such as China and India as well as heavy demand from the biofuels industry.

"The greatest challenge to the world is not US$100 oil; it's getting enough food so that the new middle class can eat the way our middle class does, and that means we've got to expand food output dramatically," he said.

The impact of tighter food supply is already evident in raw food prices, which have risen 22% in the past year.

Source -

In this article Mr.Coxe is pointing out the production of biofuel / biodiesel is one of his primary concerns. If you do not know, biofuel / biodiesels are produced by using corn, wheat, sugar beets, ect. Many of the grains and produce used to make biofuel / biodiesel is also the same thing we use to feed the livestock thus promoting a healthy food supply.

Living here on the Gano Ranch, we have seen this directly as well as having an effect on us as these prices go up. In fact this was my main topic for this week’s Prophezine’s This Week In Bible Prophecy Show.

Watch Now -

We have noticed the cost of our chicken feed going up and even our dog food, which is also predominately made from grains.

With the continued cost of rising livestock feed going up, the products such as meat, diary, poultry and eggs are also going up.

Soon the rule of supply and demand will impact us. But which demand will win out? Will the demand to run our machinery win or will the demand to feed our livestock win.

No matter what, in the end, we learn that food will become scarce.

We read in Revelation 6:6

Rev 6:6 (KJV) And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible states…

“a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; "Choenix", the measure here used, signifies as much as was sufficient for a man for one day, as a penny was the usual hire of a laborer for a day as found in Mat 20:2; so a choenix of corn was allowed to each man in Xerxes's army for a day, according to Herodotus ; the same quantity for a day was given by the Romans to their shepherds and servants, and is generally said to be about two pounds; according to Agricola it was two pounds and a quarter.”

So we learn that a measure of grain is approximately 2 pounds and the cost for that grain will be an average day’s wage.

In 2006 the average hourly pay across the board was $16.31. If you add benefits the average was $19.57 per hour for non supervisory workers. To get yearly income figure you take approx 2000 hours per year per hour ($16.31 x 2000) and you come up with $32620.00 for a full time employee for a year’s worth of work.

Source -

We have 52 weeks in a year so if you minus 104 from 365, that gives you 261 days a person works on average. This is not counting vacation time. That comes to an average of $124.98 or $125.00 per day if you round up.

Now this is US Dollars, but you can take your countries currency and basically do the same rough math and come out with a figure that meets to your countries’ currency.

So what does this tell us?

For approximately two pounds of wheat, it will cost the US consumer approximately $125.00. The cost for 6 pounds of barley will also cost approximately a days wage or $125.00. Now this is during the tribulation. What prevents the price making a climb up as we draw closer to the end of this age? Here is an interesting side note about barley; it is what beer is made from. Pay attention later in the article discussing alcohol.

One other point to make, we also know that the population of man is also going up thus making the current supply and demand even greater.

In reading the second part of Rev 6:6 is says “see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

The oil spoken of here was olive oil which was used in their lamps, to bath in, cook with but primarily it was used as an energy source. As for wine it was and still is a luxury.

In past articles I have pointed to Isaiah 5, the judgment of nations, as what will befall the United States as well as other nations that turn their backs upon God. But take note of what is spoken about here; we see greed, the cost of food going up and extreme drunkenness.

Isaiah 5:8-10 (KJV) Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! 9 In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. 10 Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of a homer shall yield an ephah.

Isaiah 5:11 (KJV) Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!

In reading these verses, we see that man driven by his greed will work to possess all that he can. He will displace all others not caring for his fellow man. He will drive off from their lands all others, and take possession of all they can and all for themselves. We see also that the land will not yield properly. Here ten acres only yields one bath or approximately seven gallons of wine. It does not tell us why, but I bet it is through the continued overworking of the land to the point that the good earth no longer produces. Again greed and the worship of self are to blame.

We continue in Isaiah and see that man will rise up and begin his day early with strong drink and do this until the night.

These things are taking place today. We are sittng at the edge of the end of the age. In Revelation 6:5-6 God’s judgment befalls man. It will be worse than today, but today we are already seeing the foundations begin to stir.

Folks, time is at hand and Jesus is returning very soon for his bride. If you do not know the Lord, you will be left behind to face the tribulation. If you are left behind, the odds are against you and you will most likely die a horrible death. If you choose to come to Christ during the tribulation, you will see persecution by the antichrist who despises all man, but especially those who love God. In that case scripture says that you will give your head and be a martyr.

Who Do You Serve?

Jesus stated the following…

John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If you do not have Christ in your life, you will spend eternity in hell. This is a fact. It does not matter if you believe this or not, it is the truth spoken by Jesus himself. If your name is not written in the Lambs Book of Life you will go to hell for what you have not done and that is accepting Christ as your personal savior. To be placed in the Lamb Book of Life, you need to turn your life completely over to Him. Having “head” knowledge or “just believing in Christ” is not the same as having “heart” knowledge with Christ living in your heart. We know that even the devils believe in Him, where are they spending eternity?

James 2:19 (KJV) Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

We work hard at Prophezine to show that Bible Prophecy is coming to pass. Because of this fact, the Bible is true. Since the Bible is the true and inerrant word of God, there is a heaven and there is a hell.

If you claim the title of “Christian” then take account of yourself this day. Many claim the title, but we read in God’s Word that the title does not get you into heaven.

Matthew 7:21(KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 7:22(KJV) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Matthew 7:23(KJV) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Who you serve will determine where you will spend eternity. If you are not serving Christ and a true child of God, then you are serving Satan and a child of the enemy.

If you are not 110% sure, then take account of yourself, your very life depends upon it.

1John 1:9 (KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
