Q. I was wondering with all that’s going on in the middle east right now, I see it has a countdown / ticking time bomb to usher in a world war in the middle east. My question is this: Is the Ezekiel War and Psalm 83 war that is prophesied the same war??? And this war is different than Armageddon right?
A. Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 are not the same. Psalm 83 involves those countries and people groups who share a border with Israel. In Ezekiel 38 none of the attackers has a common border with Israel. Also neither of these battles is the war of Armageddon. They both take place before Daniel’s 70th Week begins and involve only some of the world’s nations. Armageddon takes place at the end of the 70th Week and involves all of the world’s nations.
