"RE: Lauren"

 
Hi Lauren,
 
I realize that we have two very different views on how the end times are going to play out, so I don't expect to change your mind. 
There is one point I would like to make, however, on the following:
 
"You said that you believe, "there will be a confirming of the Abrahamic land covenant after the Psalm 83 war"
 
That will never be, their will be a 'dismantling of the "Abrahamic land covenant" because the antichrist "parcels the land out for gain" Daniel 11:39 "
 
I believe the parceling of land is after the "abomination of desolation".  In other words, the covenant, if it is the Abrahamic land covenant with provisions
for a temple, would last for the first 3 1/2 years of the 7 year Tribulation and then be "dismantled" in the midst.  Daniel 9 shows us that the main event
that breaks the covenant is the "abomination of desolation".  But then Daniel 11 goes on to show a conquest of the region.  There appears to be three
larger kingdoms at this time that consists of the antichrist's kingdom (the kingdom to the north of Israel), the glorious land (Israel), and the kingdom to the
south (likley Egypt, Lybia, Sudan, and perhaps a larger area).  All this fits with a reorganzition of the land into at least three larger kingdoms in the Middle 
East (perhaps more that aren't listed specifically in Scripture) through a covenant or peace treaty after the Psalm 83 war.
 
Maranatha!
