Psalm 83 New King James Version (NKJV)
Prayer to Frustrate Conspiracy Against Israel
A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.
1 Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God!
 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more…”
In the preceding video presentation we heard Mr. Joel Rosenberg mentioned that Iraq will become powerful world democratic and capitalistic nation. Thus I have quoted only the following three out of twenty-five Bible facts presented in the article; courtesy Dr. O.Wilburn Swaim Th.D

11. As Israel is now the least of the nations, so Iraq shall be in that day (Jeremiah 50:12). But first she must rise to great power in the world! (Jeremiah 50:11, 23; 5 1:13, 25; Isaiah 1 Revelation 18:7, 10, !5a,16-19). Col. Oliver North stated on Fox News Network, on Thursday Night, January 9, 2003, that upon the defeat of Saddam Hussein, the establishment of democracy in Iraq would be a tremendous and immediate success. Unlike our experience in Afghanistan, Iraq’s people are educated and well able to seize hold of democracy and make it work. Could it be that we will succeed in removing Saddam, and Iraq will become a powerful world democratic and capitalistic nation?
Verses of scripture referred to:
Jeremiah 50:12 Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert…[50:11] Because ye were glad, because ye rejoiced, O ye destroyers of mine heritage, because ye are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls; [50:23] How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! [ 51:13] O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness. [51:24] And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD.  Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.
Isaiah 1 talks about: The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem…
Revelation 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow…[18:10] Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come… [18:5a] For her sins have reached unto heaven… And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,  And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
12. The wrath upon her shall be unlimited (Jeremiah 50:14, 15; Revelation 18:21-23); total retribution (Isaiah 13:13-19).
Verses of scriptures referred to:
Jeremiah 50:14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD.  Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.
Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.  And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.  And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.  Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.  Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.  Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.  Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.  And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
13. As Iraq has destroyed the nations by force and cruelty (Jeremiah 51:25), so shall she be. She will be riding high among the nations, but God will surprise her with His destruction (Jeremiah 50:23-25; Psalm 137:8, 9; Isaiah 14:4-6; 47:11). God will use the alliance to do His work. Iraq will even be in an alliance that will destroy Egypt (Ezekiel 32, note verses 11, 12.) Verse15 locates it at the end time.
Verses of scriptures referred to:
Jeremiah 51:25 Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain… [50:23] How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!  I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.  The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
Psalms 137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.  Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
Isaiah 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!  The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.  He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth… [47:11] Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.
THE IRAQI PRIME MINISTER PROMISES TO ELIMINATE AL QAEDA MILITANTS
Do you believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? You can see very clearly that He is closing the book on this sinful world. But because of His loving nature, He wants to reduce the number of human beings from perishing, not the other way around. It is still not too late to seek His favor (grace)!
“THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONG SUFFERING TO US-WARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.” [2 Peter 3:9]
The way to be saved from the end time disasters and burning forever in the lake of fire, all He asks is, believe in His Son, Jesus Messiah, whom He had sent into the world to be the ultimate sin sacrifice. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY! This invitation is open to all: atheists, Judaism, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, for people of all walk and beliefs.
