“Hezbollah fires 19 rockets at Israel, in heaviest barrage since 2006 war”

(Times of Israel – August 6, 2021)

This recent rocket attack, which came on the 15th anniversary of the Hezbollah vs. Israel war of 2006, moved prophecy buffs to the edge of their seats. Hezbollah, who is armed to the teeth with about 150,000 missiles from Iran, some of which are precision guided, poses a major threat to the well-being of Israel. This terrorist group inhabiting Lebanon is a powerful proxy of Iran, who just three days prior to this rocket barrage, inaugurated a new radical president named Ebrahim Raisi.

Nicknamed the ‘Butcher of Tehran’, Ebrahim Raisi was the youngest of four members in the so-called Death Committee for Tehran which was responsible for the execution of political prisoners at the end of the eight-year war with Iraq. Over a period of five months, approximately 5,000 prisoners from armed opposition and leftist groups were given death sentences as part of a political purge.

It seems that the tension between Israel and Iran has reached a breaking point and a second massive conflict between Hezbollah and Israel could be imminent. Adding fuel to the fire is the recent acknowledgment by Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz, that Iran is merely ten weeks away from being able to make a nuclear bomb.

Hezbollah vs. Israel will it lead to Ezekiel 38 or Psalm 83?

Some prophecy teachers are suggesting that the recent rocket attack from Hezbollah might burgeon into an expanded regional war that might lead into the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 38 prophecy. However, neither Hezbollah nor any other of Iran’s proxies are identified in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy. Read the article below that addresses this topic.

IRAN is in Ezekiel 38, but why NOT their PROXIES?

Although Hezbollah is not listed in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy, they do appear to be listed as the “inhabitants of Tyre” in Psalm 83. Recent Mideast developments, coupled with Hezbollah’s potential role in the Psalm 83 prophecy has prompted more and more prophecy students to ask their pastors and favorite prophecy teachers if Psalm 83 is a prophecy in process. I believe it very well could be and invite you to read the article below.

Psalm 83 – A Prophecy In Process

Amazing Discovery in 2006 may connect Hezbollah with Psalm 83

The summer of 2006 appears to have been a prophetically eventful. While the Israelis were fending off Hezbollah, the Irish found a forgotten Psalm 83 prophecy buried under muddy bog soil.

Are the events you are about to read below a random coincidence, or a divinely orchestrated act of providence?

Psalm 83 predicts the formation of a ten-member Arab confederacy that someday seeks to wipe Israel off the map. Coincidentally, Hezbollah appears to be listed among the Psalm 83 confederates as the “inhabitants of Tyre”. Tyre is located in Lebanon and has become infiltrated by the Hezbollah terrorist organization.

When the war was over the Economist news headline on August 17, 2006 read, “NASRALLAH WINS THE WAR”… The sub-caption stated, “Bad news all round, especially if more of Israel’s neighbors come to believe in Hezbollah’s methods.”

That was 15 years ago, but many inside Israel are concerned that a round two is coming between Hezbollah and Israel. Today it is estimated that Hezbollah has about 150,000 missiles pointed at a bank of strategic targets within Israel, like the Ben Gurion Airport, the Dimona Nuclear facility and Tel Aviv high-rises. Some of these are precision guided missiles with a high degree of accuracy.

That summer of 2006 I was 75% completed with my book Isralestine, the Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East, of which Psalm 83 is the central theme. I had become enamored with the Psalm 83 prophecy after the events of September 11, 2001. My goal was to find out what the Bible had to say about the Arab – Israeli conflict and terrorism, its ugly bi-product. I was seeking to make prophetic sense out of the decades of Mideast chaos coupled with the catastrophic events of September 11th. In the midst of my research I discovered Psalm 83.

Several years later I discovered that the Psalm had surfaced in Ireland at the same time Hezbollah was warring against Israel and I was penning Isralestine. In retrospect it appears that the past, present and future became infused together during that eventful summer. Psalm 83 made front page headlines worldwide at that time.

Several correlating headlines read,


Ancient Book of Psalms Found in Irish Bog” – Associated Press July 26, 2006

Israel Mourns; Hezbollah Exults” – Washington Post July 17, 2006

Was God attempting to tell humanity something through these above correlating coincidental events?

July 26, 2006: In what was heralded as the Irish equivalent to the “Dead Sea Scrolls”, numerous notable newspapers reported that Psalm 83 had been discovered in Irish bog soil. Preserved and opened in place, this parchment potentially represents a seedling planted in the past designed to be uncovered at the opportune time. Apparently that was the summer of 2006.

I find it curious that, although there are 150 Psalms, 1189 chapters, and 31,173 verses in the Bible, this one Psalm with a mere 18 passages was discovered preserved and open in place. It simply required a little careful handling and some skilled dusting off in order to read its prophetically timely contents. Other Psalms were found alongside at the time however, they were severely fragmented and scarcely salvageable.

Analysts were shocked that this ancient parchment buried for over 1000 plus years under heavily weathered bog soil was virtually unblemished. Additionally, they were astonished that the manuscript wasn’t destroyed during the time of discovery. This wasn’t a skilled carefully orchestrated archaeological dig, rather a bulldozer trying to clear some landmass.

July 12 – August 14, 2006: Israel and Hezbollah, opponents of each other in the Psalm 83 prophecy, were involved in a 34-day conflict. The Hezbollah-Israeli conflict was a turning point for Israel. Single handily Hezbollah humiliated Israel, something the Arabs failed to do in their 1948, 1967, and 1973 conventionally fought wars against the Jewish State. In so doing, Hezbollah, a terrorist group turned political party, elevated the Palestinian plight and reinvigorated Pan Arab Nationalism in favor of it.

The Palestinians appear to be listed in first position among the ten-member confederacy of Psalm 83. They seem to be identified as the “tents of Edom” in Psalm 83:6. Being identified in a “tents of” condition probably identifies them as the “Palestinian refugees”. Biblically, a “tents of” condition often represents an ethnicity dwelling as refugees. The Edomites of old have some ethnic representation in the Palestinians of today.

Thus, the plight of the Palestinian refugees today is likely related to the Psalm 83 prophecy. Psalm 83:4 declares the ten-member Arab confederacy seeks to destroy the Jewish State and Psalm 83:12 describes their intent to form a final Arab State called Palestine. This verse says, “Let us take for ourselves, the pastures of God,” i.e. the Promised Land!

Hezbollah, a Shiite Muslim group, has emboldened and united Israel’s enemies. Hezbollah’s successes in the summer of 2006 have served to unite predominantly Sunni populations, like Hamas and Syria, with Shiites like, Iran and Hezbollah.

Perhaps the Lord is telling eschatologists today to keep a close watch on Hezbollah-centered Mideast events. Hezbollah military actions could easily initiate the destruction of Damascus in Isaiah 17 and perhaps the Psalm 83 event.


July 26, 2006: As stated above, Isralestine, a book detailing the prophetic significance of Psalm 83, was being penned for future publication at the time of the discovery of the Psalm 83 parchment in Ireland. It is now available and has caused many eschatologists to rethink their end time’s models.

This book has since been upgraded after the Arab Spring into the book called Psalm 83: The Missing Prophecy Revealed, How Israel becomes the Next Mideast Superpower. This book also answered all of the objections about the Psalm 83 prophecy below.

• Why Psalm 83 is a Prophecy
• Why Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 are Different Prophecies
• Why Psalm 83 Precedes Ezekiel 38
• Why Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 are Pre-Tribulation Prophecies
• Why Psalm 83 was not fulfilled in the Arab-Israeli War of 1948
• Why Psalm 83 is a NOW PROPHECY
• Why Ezekiel 38 is a NEXT PROPHECY

Historically many Rabbis have taught that “Coincidence” is not a kosher word. When we consider the above correlating summer of 2006 events and their seeming past, present, and future infusion, should they be classified as coincidental or providential?

Some say that coincidence is, “God’s way of remaining anonymous.”
Should eschatologists be rethinking the time placement of Psalm 83? Is it possible that the summer of 2006 was a prophetically relevant season?

After all, Amos 3:7 declares; Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. Is it possible the Lord used the summer of 2006 to warn the world that the Psalm 83 prophecy is about to find final fulfillment?
