Kedar shall soon fall
13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye travelling companies of Dedanim.
14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled.
15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
16 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:
17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel hath spoken it.
Today's message really gave me the gitters for it is a straight declaration of the Lord, of what is happening in the Middle East.
When the Lord started teaching me the symbolism of the words in the Bible I was taken aback by one particular flow of event how people will embrace Christianity from Islam. The way Islam is spreading around the world and entrapping people, it requires only God's interference to change things.
When I told a Muslim evangelist about what the Bible says will happen to Islam he just would not believe and instead said that the Quran stated Islam will rule the world. The Bible says in a short time Islam (specifically Arabs - not people but they who follow the faith) would be almost destroyed, confusion and unrest would grip them.
The cradle keepers of Islam are the Arabs and if they are shaken then Islam would just collapse and converge.
As we read today unrest is spreading throughout the Arab countries and like the word the Lord gave me last time about a powerful (nuclear) Islamic country would also go into unrest, today the message is even more powerful that very soon the whole of Islamic roots, Arabs will collapse.
Edom means anger, Arabia means evening or darkness and Kedar means dark. These are the terms used for Ishmaelite - spiritual children of Ishmael (slave son of Abraham) considered founder to Islam by their prophet. Ishmael had twelve sons and one daughter, the daughter was taken wife by Esau (Edom). All Muslims who follow example in Mohammed claim descent in Ishmael.
In today's message it is written that these people (Arabs) entrapped people with false teachings and with bribed with worldly riches, people who fled from the anger of God. These people started to realize the existence of a true God and wanted to come out of idol or pagan worships but Islam by the power of the rich Arabs entrapped them saying Islam offers them relief from this. Ironically Islam is based on Moon worship and other pagan worships (the Kaba was originally a temple of 360 gods).
Today's message is also telling us the time duration in which this great even will happen, it is written year (period) according to the period of hired man. Since this is a political unrest the term hired man refers to the leader of a country. In most countries this term is a four year period. So we should see within four years most of the Arab countries will collapse with very few remaining and this is the promise of the Lord God of Israel.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You are Almighty God and nothing is impossible to You. You also are a patient God and wait for the right time to punish those who revolt against You because You do not want to destroy your own in your anger towards those who are not yours. Lord, as we lift our hands unto your mountains in these times of wrath, we pray for your lost ones and their families, protect them and provide for them as You provided for Elisha in the brook...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
20 And God was with the lad, and he grew; and he dwelt in the wilderness, and became, as he grew up, an archer.
