If you have been following the news within the last few weeks than you know about the ISIS v. Jordanian incident. ISIS burnt to death a Jordanian pilot by the name of Moaz Al-Kasasbeh because Jordan would not release to ISIS terrorists.Jordan then killed the two ISIS terrorists in retaliation. Since then Jordan has launched 56 revenge airstrikes against ISIS. Jordan is targeting Syria and has moved thousands of troops to the Iraq border. ISIS has turned many Muslims who were on their side against them because of the burning of the Jordanian pilot.
Jordan’s King Abdullah threatened to make ISIS pay.He vowed to wage a harsh war against ISIS because this terrorist organization is not only fighting Jordan, but also Islam and its pure values.
Jordan has been at peace with Israel for quite a long time and this incident with ISIS may have made the bond between Jordan and Israel even stronger.
In the Old Testament the cities of Edom, Moab and Ammon allowed Israel safe passage through their lands. These three cities make up present day Jordan. Daniel 11:41 says that Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from the Antichrist’s hand. The leaders of Ammon are the Hashemite family, with King Abdullah II as its head. This family has ruled Jordan, whose capital is Ahman (after Ammon), since its inception.
There are several references that when combined seem to conclude at the beginning of the Great Tribulation, believing Jews will flee to Petra in southern Jordan, where they will be supernaturally protected by the Lord. In Matthew 24:16 the Lord warned those in Judea (Israel) to flee to the mountains when they see the Abomination of Desolation. the closest mountains are to the east and southern Jordan where Petra is located. Revelation 12:14 tells of Satan pursuing them across the desert as they flee to a place prepared for them. This desert lies between Israel and the mountains of southern Jordan around the northern and eastern shores of the Dead Sea. In Isaiah 63:1 – 6 there’s a description of the Lord coming from Bozrah in Edom after single handedly defeating His enemies there.Bozrah is the region of Edom were Petra is located. This indicates that when the time comes the Lord will declare Jordan off-limits to the Antichrist and give His people refugee there.
No other country is mentioned in the Bible as being excluded from the Antichrist control.
