Some readers of the Gog Package have asked me if PSALM 83 will be fulfilled prior to the Gog-Magog war.

Yes, it will be fulfilled after the Arab Spring and before the Gog-Magog war. PSALM 83 is a Prayer against a Hostile Alliance that will invade to annihilate Israel.  The members of the Alliance are neighboring nations of Israel, such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Syria (Ps 83:7-9). After being defeated, the Alliance will grow to include Russia, Iran and Turkey among other nations, to invade Israel in the Gog-Magog war.

2 God, do not be silent;
God, do not be deaf or remain unmoved!
3 See how your enemies rage;
your foes proudly raise their heads.
4 They conspire against your people,
plot against those you protect.
5 They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
let Israel’s name be remembered no more!”
6 They scheme with one mind,
they have entered into a covenant against you.  (Ps 83:2-6)

The preceding verses allude primarily to the formation of a hostile alliance, and the following verses invoke divine protection from the Almighty Father to Israel.

16 Cover their faces with shame,
till they seek your name, LORD.
17 Let them be ashamed and terrified forever;
let them perish in disgrace.
18 Let them know that your name is LORD,
you alone are the Most High over all the earth.  (Ps 83:16-18)
