Jordan’s Reversal in the Last Days
What will go wrong with Jordan?
Jordan has had a peaceful history with Israel since 1967, after its defeat in the Third Arab – Israeli War.
The current King Abdullah of Jordan is the offspring of a Muslim father, and a Christian mother.
He has what seems to be a tolerant, friendly and open relationship with Christians and Jews .
Will something change with his country, or with him?
However, there are some passages which show that Jordan is not favor with God in the end times.
Even though it has a current positive relationship with Israel, as of this writing, something will go wrong.
Jordan is the modern name for the territories of Moab, Edom, and Ammon.
Isaiah 34 describes Edom in the last days, starting with the 6th seal.
Isa 34:2 For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
Isa 34:4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree.
This passage is equivalent to Rev 6:14
Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
At this point, the wrath of God turns toward Edom. It is as if Edom is top on the list for vengeance.
Isa 34:5 ¶ For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea [Edom], and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
Isa 34:6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
The wrath is due to its treatment of Zion
Isa 34:8 ¶ For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
The destruction is forever. Edom will become a wasteland.
Isa 34:10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
