Jordan's King Abdullah says a failure in the Middle East peace talks could lead to war in the region

Listen to Today's Program Play

Jordan's King Abdullah told talk show host John Stewart, on a recent appearance on The Daily Show that if Middle East peace talks fail there could be a war in the Middle East and the United States will be involved in this war which could spread throughout the entire region. Abdullah said that the lack of ability to move the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks forward as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are factors in the success or failure of bringing peace to the region. 

The Jordanian king said that his country has a vested interest in the success of the peace talks reminding Stewart that the future security for the Israelis and the Palestinians is security for Jordan as well.  

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jordanian King Abdullah's warning of a Middle East war, if the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks fail, is in essence a page out of Bible prophecy for the last days. 

Jordan's King Abdullah on the John Stewart talk show, The Daily Show, was almost prophetic as he warned of a war in the Middle East if the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks fail. The king said that Jordan was between Iraq and a hard place, with a hint of humor, however the king is speaking truth about a region of the world that he knows very well. Jordan's population is made up of Palestinians who have moved into Jordan over the last 60 years and number almost 3.5 million, 70% of Jordan's total population. King Abdullah is eagerly watching as the peace talks move ahead with many bumps on the road to success. 

The king may not realize that his warning of a Middle East war happening in the next year is a page right out of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophets did not name the exact time but they did prewrite history pertaining to the Middle East war in the future (Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11). Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Malachi, and Obadiah were more specific in their prophecies as it relates to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Malachi 1 reveals that the Edomites, modern-day Palestinians, that the Edomites will return to power and build borders that the Lord calls borders of wickedness. Ezekiel 35 predicts the Palestinians will kill Jews and take their land. Both Obadiah and Jeremiah say that when the Messiah comes back to the Earth, the Edomites, today's Palestinians will be destroyed. 

King Abdullah's warning of a Middle East war is correct. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
