For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth…
(Zephaniah 2:11b, NKJV; emphasis added)
The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish…
(Jeremiah 10:11b NKJV; emphasis added)
The Hebrew prophets Jeremiah and Zephaniah declared approximately 2600 years ago, that their God Jehovah would someday destroy “all the gods of the earth”. Perched atop a lofty god-list inclusive of Satan, Shiva, Vishnu, and hundreds of other imposters, sits Allah. Part two of this three-part study explores the two primary prophetic episodes that extinguish Allah, and expire Islam. In essence we will discover how Allah surrenders his Akbar (i.e.- greatness).
Moments before taking a last breath, many Israelis and Americans were forced to hear the explosive words, Allah, or Allahu Akbar. This chant, often uttered by the Islamic suicide bomber on route to his supposed 70 heavenly virgins, alludes to Allah being greater than everything. This claim, which commonly leads Muslims worldwide into their daily prayers, is about to be proven false. This article estimates the remaining shelf life of Islam at 20 to 30 years, after which humanity will find it futile to further credit Allah with any Akbar.
Psalm 83 – ALLAH FAILS THE ARABS
In the very near future the world will witness two distinctly differing, and chronologically sequential, invasions of Israel. In both instances the assailants’ populations operate predominately under Islamic influence. The first episode, likely occurring within the next 10 to 20 years, aligns Palestinians, Syrians, Saudis, Egyptians, Jordanians, Lebanese, and associated terrorist organizations, like the Hezbollah, Hamas, and Al-Qaeda (i), in a confederate effort to destroy the Jewish State of Israel. Psalm 83 describes this coming war, and alludes to these populations by their ancestral equivalents: the Edomites, Ishmaelites, Moabites, Hagarenes, Gebalites, Ammonites, Amalekites, Philistians, Tyrians, and Assyrians.
As pointed out in the first of this three-part study, the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.) decimates this confederation. It is in the context of this war that Zephaniah issues his Zenocidal (ii) decree: “The LORD will be awesome to them, for He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, indeed all the shores of the nations.” (Zephaniah 2:11, NKJV; emphasis added)
Prior to issuing this decree against the false gods, Zephaniah 2:4-10 describes the I.D.F. takeover of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, as well as parts of Northern and Central Jordan. As my book Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East points out, additional Arab soil is annexed by the I.D.F. at this time.
The point the prophet makes is that his God, Jehovah, is greater than the Arab god Allah. In ancient times a god was to bless his worshippers in battle, and greatness (Akbar) was awarded to the god of the victor. The subject gods of Zephaniah’s prophecy were, Chemosh and Milcom. These gods, along with numerous others, were abandoned prior to, or forfeited later, in favor of Allah. By the time the 7th century AD rolled around, Allah presided as the undisputed god of these Psalm 83 Arab populations. Hence, in accordance with historical Hebrew precedence, comes the understanding that in bitter defeat Allah will have failed to deliver his Akbar to the Arabs.
Ezekiel 38-39 – ALLAH ABANDONS HIS POST
The I.D.F. conquest, over the Psalm 83 Arab confederates, will be the first of a one-two punch combination that knocks Allah down to the canvas and out for the count. The second devastating blow to the god of Islam is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. Ezekiel foretells of a time when Gog of Magog, brings together the historical populations of Rosh, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and Togarmah, to invade the nation of Israel. This coalition also banners Islam as its common denominator.
This Russian – Iranian led nuclear equipped alliance will be coming after the spoils Israel will possess as a result of their prior victory over the Psalm 83 Arabs. The I.D.F. will be no match for this assault, nor are they intended to be. As per Ezekiel 39:1-8, their God, Jehovah, plans to take care of these adversaries single-handedly, and in the process notify the world that He is alive, well, and powerfully sovereign.
At a Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, CA. prophecy conference on May 17, 2008, Joel Rosenberg, the well known author and lecturer, suggested that the day following the conclusion of this prophetic Ezekiel event, should find Muslims hard pressed to remain faithful to Islam. The inference is that the embarrassment of worshipping an obviously incompetent god will cause many to question their Islamic faith. This author is in full agreement with this presumption.
In conclusion, the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 prophecies present Anti-Semitic end time events having the fingerprints of Allah upon them. The survival of the Jewish descendants of Abraham is paramount historical proof that Jehovah is a promise keeper. The collapse of the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 confederacies bring with them the final surrender of Allah’s Akbar. With no god at its future helm, the Islamic Religion shall one day cease to exist.
