In my previous installment I began a critical review of Bill Salus’ book entitled Israelestine. My contention is that Salus, who would consider himself a futurist, has put forth a historicist interpretative approach of Psalm 83, along with other exegetical errors. Salus contends that Psalm 83 teaches an Israeli war with her surrounding neighbors before the rapture takes place that will set the stage for post-rapture events like the Gog & Magog war and the tribulation. I believe that such a view is simply a product of Salus’ fertile imagination and has no basis in the biblical text (1 Tim. 1:4; 2 Tim. 4:3–5).
