Psalm 52 verses 4 and 5 above indicate something that I believe is going to happen at some time quite soon. The time for the counterfeit State of Israel to produce fruit worthy of the Kingdom of God, reflecting His nature and character and His plan and purpose is now expiring. Edom is symbolic of the flesh and can therefore never yield Kingdom fruit. There can only ever be one end. The picture is given in Isaiah 29 not only of the end of that nation but also of those who are involved in the final conflict. I believe it pictures a nuclear event that will render the Land uninhabitable for anyone so that no-one will be the victor.
"29:1 Ariel is as good as dead – Ariel, the town David besieged! Keep observing your annual rituals,celebrate your festivals on schedule. 29:2 I will threaten Ariel, and she will mourn intensely and become like an altar hearth before me. 29:3 I will lay siege to you on all sides; I will besiege you with troops; I will raise siege works against you. 29:4 You will fall; while lying on the ground you will speak; from the dust where you lie, your words will be heard. Your voice will sound like a spirit speaking from the underworld; from the dust you will chirp as if muttering an incantation.
29:5 But the horde of invaders will be like fine dust, the horde of tyrants like chaff that is blown away. It will happen suddenly, in a flash. 29:6 Judgment will come from the Lord who commands armies, accompanied by thunder, earthquake, and a loud noise, by a strong gale, a windstorm, and a consuming flame of fire. 29:7 It will be like a dream, a night vision. There will be a horde from all the nations that fight against Ariel, those who attack her and her stronghold and besiege her. 29:8 It will be like a hungry man dreaming that he is eating, only to awaken and find that his stomach is empty. It will be like a thirsty man dreaming that he is drinking, only to awaken and find that he is still weak and his thirst unquenched. So it will be for the horde from all the nations that fight against Mount Zion."
The "hordes" mentioned in 29:5, 29:7 and 29:8 are I believe the "enemies" of Ariel (Jerusalem) and are none other than the carnal Zionists who have laid siege to the "bloody city" and will be destroyed along with it. Their dreams of possessing the Land will disappear and come to nothing.
"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
