Israel's Exceedingly Great Army
Continuing in the book: "PSALM 83 - The Missing Prophecy Revealed" by Bill Salus
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. -- Ezek.37:10, NJKV

Ezekiel 37:10 informs us that Israel, rising from a seemingly helpless fate, will establish for itself an "exceedingly great army." The Jews will change from victims to victors, from destroyed to destroyers, and from hunted to hunters. Today we witness the doors to the Holy Land, which approximately 2000 years ago bid them a hostile farewell, re-opening. One by one, they come home to Israel. With the Holocaust behind them and their ancient enemies before them, they arrive with one eye on the farm/ and the other on the fight......
(WHAT TERRIBLE UNDERSTANDING he has for Ezekiel 37. The context tells you that this is so important that the House of Israel and the House of Judah will be joined together AGAIN, which most orthodox Jews know has never happened since they were divided after the death of Solomon. And the CONTEXT within chapter 37, makes it clear WHEN the joining of the two sicks will be......verse 24....DAVID will be resurrected as king over them. It is Jeremiah 30:1-9. It is all done at the coming of the Messiah in power and glory to gather Israel and Judah from all parts of the earth....it is Isaiah 11. Mark my words! This gathering has nothing to do with Jews in the 20th century returning to the Holy Land - Keith Hunt)
7. God gathers the Jews into the land of Israel
This gathering is foretold in numerous scriptures, just a few of which I will list. This present Aliyah process, whereby the world is witnessing the immigration of world. Jewry back into the land of Israel, is the fulfillment of this gathering.24
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. (Ezek. 36:24, NKJV)
Therefore prophesy and say to them, "Thus says the LORD GOD: 'Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.'" (Ezek. 37:12, NKJV)
These passages from the prophet Ezekiel describe in detail the return of the Jews to the Holy Land. He declares that the Jewish people will come out from "among the nations," alluding to the fact that the Jewish people were dispersed worldwide. Secondly, God is rescuing these returning Jews from a horrificaliy grave Holocaust-type condition.
"It shall come to pass in that day That the LORD shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four comers of the Earth." (Isa. 11:11-12, NKJV; emphasis added)
(WHY THEY CAN NOT SEE THAT THIS PROPHECY IS FOR WHEN THE MESSIAH COMES IS BEYOND ME. IT SEEMS THEY HAVE SUCH TUNNEL VISION - ALL THEY CAN SEE IS THAT JEWS ARE ALL ISRAELITES [WHICH THEY ARE NOT] AND THE CONTEXT READING SEEMS TO BE JUST IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO READ, THEY BEING SO BLINDED TO JEWS RETURNING TO THE HOLY LAND, AS FULFILLING ALL THESE PROPHECIES, WHICH THEY DO NOT. WHEN YOU READ OF THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH IN POWER AND GLORY, AND THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH, THE ISRAELITES ARE IN CAPTIVITY TO THEIR ENEMIES, FROM WHICH CHRIST DELIVERS THEM. IT IS ALL THROUGH THE PROPHETIC BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. BLOWS ME AWAY THEY CANNOT SEE IT. HENCE THE FUNDAMENTAL PROTESTANT PROPHETS HAVE BIBLE PROPHECY SO MIXED UP IT WOULD BE LAUGHABLE IF IT IS NOT SO SERIOUS A MATTER - Keith Hunt)
Isaiah informs us the LORD will set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people from "the four corners of the Earth."To set "His hand" refers to an event that occurs because of divine orchestration. In this instance, God takes the responsibility to ensure the survival and return of a remnant of Jewish people. Isaiah declares that it is "a second time;" there is no third, fourth, or fifth occurrence referenced in scripture, making the second time both significant and final. There are theories as to what constitutes the first and the second times, and they are further discussed in my book called Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East inside the chapter called "The Second Time: A Jewish Sequel." lsaiah's use of the four corners idea signifies that the extent of the gathering is worldwide......
(AND IT IS AT THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH THAT THE GATHERING OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH TAKES PLACE.....NOT BEFORE. IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED YET. THERE WILL ONLY BE A SECOND TIME .... AN EXODUS .... SO MIGHTY AND SO UPFRONT, THAT IT WILL BE LIKE THE OLD EXODUS FROM EGYPT - ISAIAH 11: 16, WHICH INCLUDES A MIRACLE OVER THE EGYPTIAN SEA, SO MEN CAN GO OVER DRY-SHOD. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TODAY OR IN THE 20TH CENTURY.
IF PEOPLE WOULD JUST READ THE CONTEXT OF ALL SCRIPTURES, THEY COULD COME TO UNDERSTAND. BUT PEOPLE JUST JUMP OVER VERSES AS IF THEY ARE NOT THERE, OR THEY ONLY BELIEVE THE VERSES THEY WANT TO SEE, TO UPHOLD THEIR VIEW - THEY WILL NOT BE CORRECTED - Keith Hunt)
7. War breaks out in the Middle East between the confederacy and Israel
Soon to come is a major and devastating war in the Middle East between the confederacy of Psalm 83:5-8 and the exceedingly great army of Israel. The previous Arab advances against Israel will be child's play compared to this final confederate attempt.
"Therefore behold, the days are coming,"says the LORD, "That I will cause to be heard an alarm of war In Rabbah [Amman, Jordan] of the Ammonites; It shall be a desolate mound, And her villages shall be burned with fire. Then Israel shall take possession of his inheritance," says the LORD. (Jer. 49:2, NKJV; emphasis added)
"Behold, he [the confederacy of Esau] shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan Against the dwelling place of the strong [the army of Israel]; But I will suddenly make him [Esau] run away from her [Israel]." (Jer. 49:19, NKJV, abbreviated)
"Flee, turn back, dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Dedan [Saudi Arabia]! For I will bring the calamity of Esau [Southern Jordan] upon him [Esau's descendants],The time that I will punish him." (Jer. 49:8, NKJV)
(I HAVE EXPOUNDED JEREMIAH AND ALL THE BOOKS OF PROPHECY FOR YOU ON MY WEBSITE, UNDER "PROPHETS" - Keith Hunt)
These three scriptures, along with many more scattered throughout this book, point to a Middle-Eastern war that many Bible scholars do not appear to recognize is coming. Among those who do, many place its occurrence in the final seven-year, tribulation period—I respectfully disagree.This event will occur soon, well in Advance of both the Russian-Iranian Magog invasion and the seventieth week of Daniel (i.e., the Tribulation).
(MARK MY WORDS! PUT THEM ON YOUR DOOR! KEEP THEM IN FRONT OF YOU! THIS WAR THIS MAN SAYS IS COMING WILL NEVER COME. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN!!
AS YOU CAN SEE HE STILL BELIEVES IN A WAR COMING OF EZEKIEL 38, 39 BEFORE CHRIST COMES [WHICH IS ACTUALLY AFTER CHRIST HAS RETURNED]. AND HE STILL HOLDS TO A LAST 7 YEAR TRIBULATION, MISUNDERSTANDING DANIEL 9.
HE SAYS THIS WAR HE PROCLAIMS AS FROM PSALM 83, WILL BE SOON!!!
NOPE! IT WILL NOT ONLY NOT BE SOON, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AT ALL. REMEMBER WHAT I'VE JUST SAID. WHAT WOULD YOU CALL "SOON?" MAYBE SOON IS IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS......MARK IT......IT WILL NOT HAPPEN IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS, OR EVER PERIOD! IN 5 YEARS THIS MAN'S BOOK WILL HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN ABOUT. HE'LL BE THANKFUL IT HAS.....BECAUSE THE WAR HE CLAIMS WILL COME "SOON," WILL NOT HAVE HAPPENED, AND HIS BOOK WILL BE OUT OF PRINT. HE'LL HOPE YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN IT, SO HE CAN WRITE ANOTHER BOOK TO SELL TO YOU......AND ON AND ON IT GOES WITH THESE PROTESTANT PROPHETS. THE BIG PROPHETIC WRITER OF THE 1980s WAS HAL LINSAY......HIS BOOKS HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN, AND HE'S AN OLD MAN, IF HE'S STILL LIVING.
NOW STOP AND USE SOME LOGIC! This man wants you to believe there is soon a coming war between the Jews in the holy land and some Arab nations. Look on a map - see the size of the State of Israel. You can put it at least 4 times into the State of FLORIDA! Look at Iran, see its size. Even if the State of Israel has some anti-bomb rockets [to intercept in-coming nuclear rockets]; it would only take a FEW to get through the Jew's defensives and hit Jerusalem and a few other places, and the State of Israel would be no more. The land size of the State of Israel is so small, a few unclear bombs would wipe it off the globe......and this author wants you to believe the Jews will have a war with a number of Arab nations....AND WIN!!
COMMON LOGIC SHOULD TELL YOU THE IDEA IS SILLY, AND MORE THAN THAT, IT IS STUPID!!
WELL MARK IT DOWN......IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN - Keith Hunt)
During the Tribulation Period, this army, having previously won the acclaimed title of being exceedingly great, will be sidelined for the first three-and-one-half years while a false and temporary peace accord is confirmed.32 Then, in the second three-and-one-half years, this army is defeated, and the Jews flee Israel for safety elsewhere, as the Antichrist advances in an attempt to destroy them.33
(MORE SILLY AND STUPID ILLOGICAL IDEAS. A MIGHTY JEWISH WIN AGAINST MANY ARAB NATIONS, AND THEN THEY GET SIDELINED, PUT IN MOTHBALLS, THEN THE SAME MIGHTY WAR MACHINE GETS DEFEATED 3 AND 1/2 YEARS LATER. JUST AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN THE WAY THIS MAN PROCLAIMS - Keith Hunt)
8. Israel regains the title "My people Israel"
Somewhere, in the midst of events listed in this chapter, the Jewish State of Israel rises to its former status as the "Client Nation," chosen of God. When this occurs, the nation will again be identified as "My people Israel". The next chapter is dedicated to describe the significance of this national name-changing event. The compilation of scriptures contained in the following chapter encourages the placement of this episode here chronologically. I reference it now to introduce the topic, but defer to the forthcoming My People Israel chapter for further details.
(SO SOMEWHERE IN ALL OF THIS THE JEWS RISE AND BECOME "CLIENT NATION" - AND IT HAPPENS BEFORE CHRIST RETURNS, ACCORDING TO BILL SALUS - Keith Hunt)
9. Israel decisively defeats the confederacy
The army of Israel will defeat the Psalm 83 confederacy, and as a result God will fulfill the oath He made in Ezekiel 36:7. The confederacy of Arab nations will be humiliated for their attempt to expire the Jewish race. Historians will record their failed attempts alongside those of Hitler at the time of the Holocaust, and Pharaoh at the time of the Hebrew Exodus out of Egypt. Additionally the divine foreign policy contained in the Genesis 12:3 clause of the Abrahamic covenant, will be demonstrated again to the watchful eyes of humanity. The passages below pertain to the Israeli conquest over their ancient enemies.
"The house of Jacob shall be a fire, And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau shall be stubble;They shall kindle them and devour them, And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, For the LORD has spoken." (Obad. 1:18, NKJV)
(OBADIAH I HAVE EXPOUNDED FOR YOU ON MY WEBSITE - IT IS NOT AS THE PROTESTANT PROPHETS WOULD LIKE YOU TO BELIEVE - Keith Hunt)
Israel, represented by the house of Jacob and Joseph reduces Southern Jordan, which is represented by Esau, to rubble. This defeat is thorough leaving no survivor. Then your mighty men, 0 Teman, shall be dismayed, To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau May be cut off by slaughter. (Obad. 1:9, NKJV)......

13. Israel dwells securely in the land
Israel is elevated to a condition of regional superiority due to their decisive victory over the confederacy of the surrounding Arab nations. As such, they dwell securely in the Middle East for a time, a point already detailed in the chapter "Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38: What's is the Next Middle East News Headline."36
(AH YES, SO AFTER ALL THIS THE JEWS WILL THEN BE IN EZEKIEL 38 MODE.....JUST NOT SO AT ALL. EZEKIEL 38 AND 39 IS AFTER JESUS HAS RETURNED. SEE MY EXPOUNDING OF THOSE CHAPTERS AS I EXPOUND FOR YOU THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL ON MY WEBSITE - Keith Hunt)
14. Israel becomes an exceedingly great army
"So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army." (Ezek. 37:10,NKJV)
Undeniably, the result of all the events outlined in this chapter earns Israel the right to classify its defense force (IDF), as an "exceedingly great army," To genuinely achieve such a title, it is required that the army delivers a decisive victory in a full-scale war. The Psalm 83 confederate advance against tiny Israel will be considered by the international community a full-scale war. Repeating Jeremiah 49:21 :The Earth shakes at the noise of their fall; At the cry its noise is heard at the Red Sea.......
WELL REMEMBER THEN ACCORDING TO BILL SALUS, THE JEWS WILL DEFEAT A NUMBER OF ARAB NATIONS THAT COME UP AGAINST THEM IN A UNION OF ARAB NATIONS. HE SAYS IT WILL BE "SOON"......BUT DOES NOT TELL YOU WHAT HE THINKS IS "SOON."
MOST PEOPLE WOULD THINK SUCH LANGUAGE AS "SOON" WOULD MEAN.....WELL OKAY SAY BEFORE 2020.
SO MARK MY WORDS......IT WILL NOT HAPPEN BEFORE 2020 OR ANY TIME THEREAFTER, FOR IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AT ALL.
