Jordan is the country on the eastern side of the Jordan River, bordering Israel. It is known as a moderate Arab nation, ruled by a king (the official name of the country is The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan). It was established as an independent nation after World War II. At that time its territory included some land on the west side of the Jordan (the area now known as the "West Bank," including East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount).
Jordan has observed a peace treaty with Israel since 1994, and has been active in promoting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. It is threatened by the new Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL) in their barbaric march to reestablish an Islamic caliphate and destroy Israel.
There are several Old Testament prophecies about the ultimate destruction of parts of Jordan. These prophecies could be fulfilled during the course of the End Times wars that are yet to come.
