Item description for Isralestine: The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East by Bill Salus...
Overview There is an abundance of prophetic content about the "End Times" contained within the scriptures. Information that not only authenticates the sovereignty of God, the only true Author of prophecy, but is furthermore intended to prepare humanity for the times in which they traverse. The intent of this book is to explore that prophecy which is receiving little regard and yet appears to be most relevant in time to the proximity of today and its nearest future.It is not difficult to find prophetic Christian commentaries written about the Rapture of the Church, whereby Jesus Christ returns, "in the twinkling of an eye" to miraculously remove from the earth millions if not billions of His true believers. Nor are writings scarcely scattered upon the shelves of bookstores regarding the coming Russian Iranian confederate invasion of Israel, commonly referred to as the "Magog Alliance".It is also extremely easy to find and expository explaining the epic events of the Tribulation Period, and the onethousand year Messianic Kingdom period that follows, but is there a chapter missing? A matter concealed in desperate need of being searched out? A chapter unfolding before our eyes, apparently going unnoticed with little to no commentary? In light of the events developing on the world scene in these days prophetic scriptures are written that command equal attention!Yes indeed there is such a missing chapter and it is that critical component that completes the final peace of the prophetic puzzle. Until it is understood these other four events listed above find themselves out of chronological sorts.The Bible tells of a time to come in the worlds future whereby Israel amasses an "Exceedingly Great Army". It develops out of the need for national defense to protect against the continued advance of Arab aggression. At some point this finely tuned military instrument unleashes its force against these aggressors and achieves a decisive victory. As a result of this "Israeli Conquest", over the "Inner Circle" of the core "Surrounding Arab Nations", Israels borders are enlarged, prosperity increased, and national stature enhanced. It is at that time that Israel will become recognized as one of the wealthiest nations in the world, perhaps even the wealthiest of them all.When Israel finds itself in such a condition, these other afore mentioned prophetic events more clearly understood regarding Israels future are set forth for their final fulfillment. This book is purposed to explore th
Publishers Description ISRALESTINE; The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle EastSet to explode in the not so distant future, is a devastating war in the Middle East. The Jews will fight off Arab aggression and end terrorism once and for all ISRALESTINE; The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East, boldly unveils significant Bible prophecy that has eluded the discernment of today?'s great scholars.Once upon a foretold time the Jewish people were to meet with a holocaust type condition, out from which they would return back to their ancient homeland of Israel. They would begin as refugees, but promptly emerge into an exceedingly great army. As per Psalm 83, destiny?'s design for this great army is a head to head confrontation with a formidable Arab confederacy consisting of Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians, Jordanians, Saudi Arabians and Egyptians.This Arab coalition has been developing in its fledgling stages since 1948 and will climax and officially confederate in the very near future. The Israeli Defense Force will decisively defeat this offensive and prove to be the exceedingly great army of Ezekiel 37:10. They will expand their territory, become regionally superior, take prisoners of war and exploit the resources of these conquered Arab nations. In that condition they will become one of, if not the wealthiest nations on earth. It is from that position of empowerment that the Jews will dwell securely in the Middle East.

I have been a student of prophecy for many years and this book is one of the best I have read with CURRENT thought on the Psalm 83 prophecy. I believe this book is a must read for anyone who wants to have an understanding of prophecy and some very near term events on the horizon. It is very well researched, with excellent facts. This book will give the reader a very clear view of the current nations/peoples surrounding Israel,their ancient roots,the "everlasting hatred", what is being played out in todays headlines and the outcome.
It connects the dots... May 3, 2010
Most prophecy scholars conclude that Ezekiel 38-39 is the next big prophetic event to unfold. Yet they have no explanation for how we get from the current state of the Middle East to the situation described in Ezekiel. Some obvious unanswered questions are how did Israel get so rich that Russia is "compelled" to attack, how did Israel get so secure it is known as a land of unwalled villages, and why aren't the hostile countries immediately surrounding Israel on the combatant list of Ezekiel 38? Bill Salus's answers from Psalm 83 are logical and ring true to me.
One would expect that the closer we get to the end of the End Times the better our understanding of the Bible prophecies would become. So I'm surprised that there are not more books like this that fill in the gaps and highlight how current events are aligning with the Scriptures. Contrary to Mr. Salus's critics, I found his presentation easy to follow and appreciated his references to previous and upcoming chapters. It served to tie his various points together, to support them, and to avoid repetition. And Mr Salus's mastery of Hebrew oddly validated the strength of his arguments also.
Lastly, let me give a few one-liners to the critics. A man is known by his enemies as well as by his friends. And a stupid argument against something is as good as a good argument for it. Since I'm critiquing the book and not the reviewers I'll say no more.
Yet more quality material for the ediface of scriptural prophecy. . Dec 16, 2009
After getting started, I found this a hard book to put down. It is not a light read. As a student of biblical prophecy for many years I found myself cross referencing and connecting the dots that I have many times grappled with before. "Has this prophecy been fulfilled? If so when?" Most of the prophecies in question are to do with the nations immediately bordering today's Israel. I don't want to take any of Bill Salus' "thunder" here, so to the students of prophecy I say "You need to get this book". Not just for reading, but for studying and keeping for reference. It took me a proverbial "lot of heavy chewing" to get it down but all the trails need to be explored if you are like me and need to test the presented hypotheses, which incidentally, do hold up well. Yes, there are always questions left in the pursuit of the meaning of many prophetic scriptural passages, and this is the norm. This book is worthy of a place in your study library.
Very disappointed - traditional dispensational view Nov 20, 2009
I bought this book because I agreed with the premise that Israel is going to have greater strength and prosperity in the coming years as the USA's strength and prosperity decreases. This will cause many Jews to move to Israel. I thought I would get a refreshing look that was different from past dispensational eschatology or "Left Behind" view. I was wrong. It is the same views packaged differently. Mr Salus says there will be a war before the Gog Magog war between the Sons of Esau and Ishmael and the sons of Judah. He is not the first one to make this claim on the Psalm 83 war and really provides nothing new.
Interesting and exciting, THANK YOU! Jun 26, 2009
Actually lent this book to our Bible study teacher. Will get it back soon. However, had a chance to scan and read excerpts. Thank You!
