An Israeli general says that King Abdullah could be the last king of Jordan

Addressing a group of diplomats and journalists recently, the commanding officer of Israel's Central Command, Major General Yair Naveh said that Jordan's King Abdullah could be toppled by an "Islamist axis" and he could well be the last king of Jordan.

Naveh said that Hamas is gathering strength and a dangerous axis starting in Iran continuing through Iraq and Jordan is in the process of forming, then the Israeli general said that he did not want to be a prophet, but he was not sure that there will be another king of Jordan after King Abdullah. General Naveh said that today 80 percent of Jordan's population is Palestinian and with the spread of Hamas ideology and leadership, Hamas will become stronger in Jordan and could topple King Adbullah.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The overthrow of Jordan's King Abdullah by the Palestinian terror group Hamas would actually be a page out of Bible prophecy. Israeli Ambassador Dore Gold said that he interpreted Naveh's remarks to be referring to the growing Islamic terror threats both Jordan and Israel are beginning to face with Hamas becoming a serious threat to both Israel and Jordan.

Though General Naveh said that he did not want to be a prophet, that is truly what he has become. The Israeli Defense Force general's remarks are indeed a page out of Bible prophecy.

The ancient, Jewish prophet Malachi wrote some 2,400 years ago that the Edomites, the Palestinians of today who are 80 percent of Jordan's population, would return to their homeland which is Jordan, actually the lower third of the nation which includes Petra, and they would rebuild the area that they were thrown out of some 2,500 years ago. In fact, it is that same area, the ancient Palestinian lands, where Petra is located which God has prepared a place to protect the Jewish people in the Last Days, Revelation 12:6.

The potential for Hamas to become stronger in Jordan and King Abdullah to be Jordan's last king is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
