Ragnarok, maybe you can help me find this.
There's a rather obscure reference (at least, not many talk about it) in the Old Testament where God speaks of "Israel my son", and then names TWO ARAB countries, next-door to Israel, and speaks of them FAVORABLY as "My servant" and "My (something else--don't remember the word)"--but it's favorable.
I get the impression that THESE TWO NATIONS are spoken of FAVORABLY because they droped their antagonism toward Israel and MADE PEACE WITH THEM---and this would be PRIOR to Jesus' return.
Not trying to hijack the thread into religion---but it would be instructive (and interesting) I think, to find out again who those two nations were.
The reference is somewhere in the prophets--but I have no idea where or which one at the moment.
