Psalm 83 War Imminent?

I miss posting. 😦 Sorry again for the silence. I got a request from a poster called Truth to publish this post by him about a week ago and in the same time Berryblueberry asked me for the timeline that was published by the same poster. Well, eventually I get the time to just sit in front of the computer and DO it.

As said, the following is a study by Truth. Although I understand were he comes from in his findings, I do not always agree with him. But that does not make his study wrong! So please read study it prayerfully and lets learn from each other. Thanks for sharing Brother!

Psalm 83 War Imminent

An Israeli war appears to be imminent. Recent news articles hint that it may happen this spring. Watch a video about it HERE. It might be psychological warfare, or it might be real. I think that it is real.

Apart from the new articles, and based upon my own study of biblical prophecy concerning the end of the Church Age, I have reason to believe that Israel will go to war against its neighbors either this year or next year. More, I believe that the war will be the prophesied Psalm 83 War.


For the last several months, I knew that there remained only two timelines that could fit both biblical prophecy and the constraint that the animal sacrifice must be abolished within the seven years of the European Neighbourhood Policy Initiative (ENPI). This assumes that these seven years are the “seven” of Daniel 9:27.

On February 10, 2012, the “42 months” of Revelation 11:2 were given to my attention allowing me to eliminate the first timeline. There now remains only one viable timeline. That timeline is the second timeline presented in the Prophecy_v4.0.5.xls spreadsheet  associated with this article. Download it HERE. The second timeline is colored yellow.


This article is a follow-up to the “Truth” Update posted on this site on July 5, 2011. The downloadable spreadsheet, Prophecy_v4.0.5.xls, contains new information and is formatted to be more readable and more easily understandable. It is, however, too large to view all of it at once in one screen.

The spreadsheet lays out a logically and scripturally consistent pathway to the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning the second coming of Yahusha (the Messiah) and the end of the Church Age. The content of some of the cells change daily as they contain formulas driven by the current date in cell A3. It is the current state of the prophecy analysis work that I started when I became a believer in 1993.

Spreadsheet Colors

The spreadsheet contains three colored sections:

Green – events and timings that are independent of any other timeline

Red – Timeline 1, animal sacrifice is abolished August 15, 2012 (This timeline has been logically eliminated. It is included, however, to document why it was eliminated.)

Yellow – Timeline 2, animal sacrifice is abolished September 4, 2013


The summary and assumptions below, although stated as fact, are an hypothesis. I am not a prophet.

1) Israel will fight and win the Psalm 83 war in 2012 or 2013. After that, daily animal sacrifice will be instituted on the Temple Mount.

2) The daily sacrifice will be abolished on September 4, 2013.

3) Jerusalem will be divided by force on September 23, 2015.

4) The Abomination of Desolation will occur on March 17, 2017, which is 1290 days after September 4, 2013. The Abomination of Desolation will mark the beginning of The Great Tribulation.

5) The Great Tribulation will probably last 541 days.

6) The Rapture of the Church will probably occur on Rosh Hashanah (September 9 or September 10) of 2018. I do not know the day or the hour of the Rapture. However, the earliest that the Rapture could occur is March 17, 2017 and the latest that the Rapture could occur is May 11, 2019.


The following assumptions are used:

1) In his first coming, Yahusha fulfilled the Spring Hebrew festivals in precise, literal detail. In his second coming, he will fulfill the Fall Hebrew festivals (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah) in precise, literal detail.

2) The seven (7) years of the European Neighbourhood Policy Instrument (ENPI) are the “seven” (7 years) of Daniel 9:27. The ENPI marks the timeframe within which the daily sacrifice will be abolished. The Abomination of Desolation takes place 1290 days after the sacrifice is abolished. Ref. Daniel 12:11. The ENPI began on January 1, 2007 and ends on December 31, 2013. The sacrifice must be abolished before January 1, 2014.

3) The last “seven” of Daniel 9:24 is a Sabbatical seven (7 x 7 x 360 = 17640 days). It began on June 7, 1967 and ends on September 23, 2015.

4) The 42 months of Revelation 11:2 begin on September 23, 2015 and end on March 6, 2019. The Gentiles will NOT trample on the Holy City (Jerusalem) during the Millennium. This eliminates Timeline 1, which ends on Hanukkah, December 2, 2018, as a possible timeline for the fulfillment of prophecy.

5) The 2300 days of Daniel 8:11-14 refer to a time period that runs from the abolishment of the daily sacrifice to the restoration of the temple at Hanukkah.

6) The Abomination of Desolation takes place 1290 days after the abolishment of the daily sacrifice, and so, necessarily occurs after the conclusion of the ENPI. Ref. Daniel 12:11. It marks the beginning of The Great Tribulation, which will continue until the Rapture of the Church. Ref. Matt. 24:15-22.

7) The Great Tribulation has a maximum possible duration of 1260 days. Ref. Rev. 13:5 “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.” (42 months x 30 days/month = 1260 days)

8) The Great Tribulation will be cut short, but we do not know by how much. Ref. Matt. 24:22. However, the minimum possible duration of The Great Tribulation is zero (0) days.

9) The Rapture is followed by “a year of retribution” (ref. Isaiah 34:8) or “the year of my redemption” (ref. Isaiah 63:4). The fifth trumpet of Yahuah’s Trumpet judgments will last for five (5) months. 5 months x 30 days/month = 150 days. 150 days is the minimum possible length of “the year of my redemption.”

10) 935 days is the maximum possible length of “a year of retribution” (ref. Isaiah 34:8) or “the year of my redemption” (ref. Isaiah 63:4). This is the difference between 3/17/2017 (the earliest possible Rapture date) and 10/8/2019 (the final Yom Kippur before the Millennium begins). I fully expect, however, that “the year of my redemption” will last approximately one calendar year.

11) The sacrifice must be abolished on September 4, 2013 (2300 days prior to Hanukkah, December 22, 2019) in order to fulfill Daniel 8:11-14.

12) Hanukkah 2019 is the only possible date for the termination of the 2300 days. By subtracting 2300 days from Hanukkah 2019, we find that the date for the abolishment of the sacrifice is September 4, 2013. The sacrifice could resume on any date after the Psalm 83 War up to and including September 4, 2013.

13) The daily sacrifice will be abolished on September 4, 2013.

14) The Rapture of the Church will probably occur on Rosh Hashanah, either September 9 or September 10 of 2018, also known as the Festival of the New Moon. A new moon is completely dark. Ref. Mark 13:24. I do not know the day or the hour of the Rapture.

Guidelines for reading the spreadsheet

The best way to read the spreadsheet is to start with the comment in cell C2. Then read the comment in cell I5 (eye-five). After that, scan the green section. Then scan the yellow section. The red section is presented for comparison only, as I believe that I have been able to eliminate it from consideration as a possible pathway to the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. In the yellow section, read the comments for Seal 2 (cell N140), Seal 3 (cell Q141), Seal 4 (cell U142), Seal 5 (cell Z143) and Seal 6 (cell AB144). After that, you are on your own. Many of the cells contain comments in addition to what they show on the surface.


Will these things come to pass? I do not know. We will just have to wait and see. It will be a short wait. If the events and timings set out in this article are to be confirmed, both the Psalm 83 War must be fought and animal sacrifice on the Temple Mount must begin before September 4, 2013.

I am not a prophet and I am not claiming that office. I am, however, a believer, a man of science, and a practically minded watchman. My objective is not knowledge. My objective is to determine right thought, and then, as appropriate, engage in preparation and action for myself, my family, my friends and fellow believers. This is my calling. These are the “talents” that have been entrusted to me.

  1. Good post and you could be right but I think most people will miss sacrifice being abolished.. its only needs the ENPI animal clause to come into affect and they can just do that while most people are going about their lives. It is a law that is there and they can implement it any time and with just a couple of signatures i suppose.
    Also the AC: unless people are vigilant at watching most people will miss who he is too, He will crush people via inflation and people will be too worried about their own personal money issues to even care whats going on.

    Matthew 24:38“For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

    Not many people on this planet will even care or know whats going to happen so that implies that the signs people are looking for either will be a bit different to the literal thinking or most people will be tricked into thinking other stuff…

    Signs we will notice that will point to the right direction is in my opinion..
    People forced to receive a mark on the right hand or forehead ( RFID technology) probably.
    2 Witnesses possibly.
    Even up to Armageddon most people will have no idea.. remember the AC has massive amounts of armies fighting with him so not even they will know the AC is the AC or they wouldn’t fight with him.
    The system (BEAST) is what will trick people as so many will only care about their families and themselves and not others..

    It is going to happen right in front of people without them even knowing, Best way to hide something is put it out in front of everyone.
    Satan knows what he is doing and he surely will try to hide as much as he can.. But he cant hide everything.
    If you look at the judgements of revelation the 3rd horseman implies hyperinflation/ poverty before the 4th one comes (Death). When hyperinflation hits the world most people will turn against God thinking he isn’t helping them and turn to the system for help. That will be their downfall but it is how its suppose to be.
    I cant say for sure how what when exactly but i think the 3rd horseman is about to ride.
    But if you look at most countries bar a few western ones the world is nearly in that stage already. (working for a days wage just to feed their family).
    People need to really take a look at things around us to see the whole picture rather than a certain event or 2.


  2. On a side note i found this rather funny. I remember this movie when i was a kid and looking that things today it is definitely getting that way 😉


  3. Read this in a article i was reading: statistics about those who call themselves believers or followers of Christ in Britain are disturbing. Granted, it was a survey by the Richard Dawkins foundation but I believe the numbers are legitimate. Here are some:

    60% of so-called Christians have not read any part of the Bible in the last year.

    26% believe in prayer and 21% do not do so at all.

    49% do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God with only 32% believing in the resurrection.


  4. Oh my goodness Vic how can you just spring this on us …just like that….LOL!!

    Man I took the night off to go though these two posts armed with a bowl of Tuscany hummus, red mini peppers with Rosemary and Olive Oil flat bread!! 🙂

    Ag toggie doesn’t beat the old boerewors and pap I tell ya!! yum….will have to wait for eternity for that it seems.

    Thank- you for the posts. I’m like a kid in a candy store!


  5. Israel cannot afford to let Iran go nuclear. However, Iran IS going nuclear.

    Once Iran has a nuclear bomb, it will use it against Israel. Israel cannot absorb a nuclear first strike, so it must stop Iran by force.

    When Israel strikes Iran, all of the countries that surround Israel will strike Israel.

    Israel cannot afford to fight any kind of protracted war. Israel will have to put a stop to the war against it immediately. It will strike its neighboring countries with a devastating blow. It will use a limited version of its Samson option. It will use nuclear weapons.

    The war will probably take place this year. The war will surely take place within the next 18 months.


  6. The reason I asked for Truth’s timeline:

    First of all I want to thank Truth for putting the time, thoughts and efforts into putting all these dates, days and time line together…. Great Job!!!

    I’ve been reading a lot of the prophecy boards, and talk of the Ezekiel and Psalm 83 War, and also Babylon’s destruction… In fact reading Scott’s “Born to Watch” site is where I picked up on Babylon potentially being the United States of America; however there is another section on his site where we see the US potentially being the 2nd Beast. I don’t think the US is the 2nd Beast: (that’s my understanding, and I have reason to believe that the 2nd beast is a man rather than a nation), but I do lean toward the US being the Babylon of the future…

    Anyway to the point… I was reading in Ezekiel 38 & 39, and noticed immediately following that war that the temple was the focus and that in chapters 40 and following there were specific instructions on the temple being rebuilt and the Glory of the Lord returning… I have not had much time to delve into this and so that is why I throw it out there to you guys to dig some… But my thought is: That something needs to happen for Israel to turn back to God… via war probably as we are seeing… I’m not sure if the Psalm 83 war is Israel striking first, then Damascus being destroyed or if it follows the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war, but Israel turns back to God. Part of their desire to turn back to the Lord, I think, is rebuilding the temple, and thus the daily sacrifice comes back into the picture… This was my thinking initially… Then I remembered Truth’s timeline, and I looked for it, but I couldn’t find it… Funny part is I remembered that there could probably be only 1 scenario or option left on his timeline…

    I’ll be honest, (personally I don’t like the timeline). Why, because of my own selfish reasons. I want the Lord’s return to be sooner rather than later, and with what we see everyday that relates to prophecy it seems like it should be sooner rather than later. God’s word, however says different. But, God said there would be 2,300 days in Daniel 8:11-14 that runs from the abolishment of the daily sacrifice to the restoration of the temple at Hanukkah, and there will be 1,290 days after the abolishment of the daily sacrifice before the abomination of desolation takes place… We can not refute, because that is what God says will happen. We know that the Anti Christ will be given authority for 42 months. Obviously Truth’s timeline hinges on the ENPI being the 7 year covenant spoken of in Daniel 9:27, which I believe is the covenant.

    Truth’s timeline is in all honesty a sort of outline of things to come… The dates within his timeline are on sort of a sliding scale of time, if that makes sense.

    Good news, Bad news…. The Good news is we can get our lives in order, start preparing spiritually and be witness to others to bring them to know Jesus… Bad news is things are going to get a lot worse… As if things aren’t already worse, but we know ahead of time, so we can prepare ourselves.

    Lafreak you are correct in saying that it will be as in the days of Noah, Matt 24:37. However I agree, that it is the stopping of the daily sacrifice that marks the timeline, what ever day we can pinpoint that occurrence is the start of our timeline. I’m not saying we won’t obviously recognize the 2 witnesses or the mark of the beast. We don’t know the day or the hour, but we have a good idea of the approximate time, which means we should all the more “KEEP WATCH”!!!



  7. Seconding Berry’s comments- I’m not disputing, but I am generally uncomfortable with some of the precise date setting in the timeline (I know you’re not claiming to be a prophet Truth- and just speculating, so it’s not a big knock on your analysis, just an observation).

    with the assumptions – I don’t see how biblical text can lead us to assume that the last “seven” is a sabbatical seven.

    I’m not comfortable assuming that the dates in future prophecy have to coincide with fall festivals – they may, but I don’t see anywhere in the scriptures that they must.

    I am not a Hebrew scholar – but I have to say I DO agree with your reading of Daniel 12:11. I always thought after reading various translations of that verse that it was odd to presume that the stopping of the sacrifice and the AoD were simultaneous events. I’m not sure, but the verse seems to lend itself to one event being at the beginning of a time period, then 1290 days,

    More news though that would lead us to believe the fulfillment of many of these prophecies are drawing near:
    Egyptian Official: War with Israel, US in Three Months
    – I wonder does a result of this war have the EU take control of the riches of Egypt, Libya and Cush (possibly Yemen?) Thus fulfilling Daniel 11: 43
    “Muslims: Israel to Give Half of Al Aqsa to Jews
    Al Aqsa Center says that Israel will create a Jewish section of Al Aqsa, similar to Hevron’s Cave of Patriarchs.”
    While the Waqf ramps up the rhetoric and provocation about the temple mount (which I suspect may be one ridge to the north of where the actual temples stood, but I digress).


  8. Here is my reasoning on the Sabbatical seven.

    A Sabbatical week is seven periods of seven years each. Each year is 360 days long. Daniel 9:24 states that “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city…” The difference between June 7, 1967 and September 23, 2015 is exactly 7 x 7 years x 360 days/year = 17,640 days and ends on a Yom Kippur. The holy city of Jerusalem was captured (gained) on June 7, 1967.

    Jerusalem will be captured (lost) on September 23, 2015.


    1) Daniel 9:24 tells us that “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city” (the ‘sevens’ clock only runs if the people of Yahuah are in possession of the holy city [Jersusalem]).

    2) Daniel 9:25-26 tells us that sixty-nine of those ‘sevens’ were complete by the time of the first coming of the Messiah (there is only one ‘seven’ left to fulfill).

    3) The last ‘seven’ began on June 7, 1967 when Moshe Dyan and his troops parachuted into Jerusalem and took control of it.

    4) If the ‘seven’ were ‘seven years’ it would have been fulfilled in June, 1974; any time of possession beyond then would contradict scripture. Daniel 9:24 says “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed…,” not more, not fewer.

    5) Jerusalem was founded in approximately 3000 B.C. If the ‘seven’ were a larger ‘seven,’ such as ’70 years,’ for instance, then it would have Jerusalem being founded more than 1300 year earlier; it would contradict history.

    6) The last ‘seven’ of Daniel 9:24 will be complete on September 23, 2015. I believe that the Israelis will have control of it until then; not a day fewer, not a day more.



  9. In my post i did say daily sacrifice will be stopped but it only takes a law to be passed by possibly the EU and considering so many laws are being passed all the time the Media probably wont even talk about it. In most peoples eyes it will just be another law. We might even miss it as well as I said it only takes a signature by a couple of people to pass laws these days. Also a heap of the population of the planet is Muslim and the rest are a mix of religions and only a handful are Christians most people wont even care. Lets see what the EU does soon as i think watching what the parliament does will point us to the direction regarding sacrifice being stopped probably via the ENPI. Stopping sacrifice will probably be a animal rights issue rather than stopping it via a biblical one. 🙂


  10. Call me crazy, but like you said Berry, i don’t like the timeline because i’m ready to go! But honestly, things don’t seem on the crazy scale like i thought things would be at the time of the end. But maybe what we need is a war and all the economies of the world to be turned upside down for the right conditions to be present. Who knows, but waiting another 5 – 7 years seem awful long.





    “Will these things come to pass? I do not know. We will just have to wait and see. I am not a prophet and I am not claiming that office. I am, however, a believer, a man of science, and a practically minded watchman.”


    1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
    1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
    1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
    1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
    1Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.




  13. By some chance could this happen before the Psalm 83 war?

    Elam is an ancient geographical location mentioned in the Bible. Today its location would be mainly in Iran with a small section in Iraq. Right now Elam/Iran is a fierce enemy of Israel and wants to wipe Israel off the map. Literally, a nuclear reactor sits in Elam for the purpose of destroying Israel. Elam is Israel’s most dangerous enemy. Today one of main sections of ancient Elam would include Bushehr Province with the capital city of Bushehr. Bushehr is very important today because it is the location of Iran’s nuclear facility and has the attention of the world.

    The Prophet Jeremiah speaks the most about Elam, as he describes a severe judgment against Elam. In very powerful language God describes His fierce anger and judgment against Elam. The judgment against Elam is very intense.

    Jeremiah 49:34,35 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
    (36) And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.
    (37,38) For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.


  14. wow Deb, it seems to me that this needs to be researched up, its interesting, and in all the prophecy talk, all over the place, for so many years now, i’ve never heard mention of Elam! what to make of this?
