Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?
Who are Sheba and Dedan? They are first mentioned in Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.
The family tree starts with Noah, then his son Ham, then his son Cush, then his son Raamah and his sons Sheba and Dedan.
Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.
Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia.
April 2, 2018: The Saudi crown prince and king to be, Mohammed bin Salman, has declared Israel has a right to exist.
“I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Bin Salman also made the following incredible statements.
“Our country doesn’t have a problem with Jews. Our Prophet Muhammad married a Jewish woman. Not just a friend — he married her. Our prophet, his neighbors were Jewish. You will find a lot of Jews in Saudi Arabia coming from America, coming from Europe. There are no problems between Christian and Muslims and Jews. We have problems like you would find anywhere in the world, among some people. But the normal sort of problems.”
Many believe the cooperation with Israel is about the management of Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia see Iran as a mortal threat. Iran is supplying rebels in Yemen with missiles which are being launched into Saudi Arabia. The Crown Prince did not have kind comments for Iranian leadership. He specifically addressed Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic.
According to bin Salman, the Ayatollah “makes Hitler look good.”
“Hitler didn’t do what the supreme leader is trying to do. Hitler tried to conquer Europe. This is bad. But the supreme leader is trying to conquer the world. He believes he owns the world. They are both evil guys. He is the Hitler of the Middle East. In the 1920s and 1930s, no one saw Hitler as a danger. Only a few people. Until it happened. We don’t want to see what happened in Europe happen in the Middle East. We want to stop this through political moves, economic moves, intelligence moves. We want to avoid war.” -Mohammed bin Salman
Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil? Yes, Russia (as they see it) has economic reason to invade Israel.
Ezekiel 38:13 says Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) along with Tarshish (loosely Europe) will object and protest against Russia and its surrogates.
Lines are being drawn in the sands of the Middle East. Countries are in alignment according to Ezekiel’s prophecy.
Destiny waits, but for how long…
