Alert: Eyes on Damascus
I want to draw your attention to Syria. While the media keeps us distracted with one after the other scandal in Hollywood and Washington, a war against and in Syria has been in the works for a long time and is about to materialize. Syria is a powder keg ready to explode.
Let’s rewind a bit and look at what happened already in 2016 under the radar of most media.
A large shipment of military equipment was shipped from the US towards Bremerhaven in northern Germany. The vehicles were painted in desert camouflage and were said to be for war games in eastern Europe and that they would be painted in the right colors on arrival. A quite nonsensical explanation.
The vehicles were indeed transported by train to the eastern European border, but even all the way down to Bulgaria. There they were loaded into two ships, one of which sailed to southern Jordan from where they were brought to the southern border of Syria; and one was sailed to Beirut Lebanon from where they were brought to the Western border of Syria.
Mind you that this has all started in 2016 under the Obama administration and has continued under Trump. The military equipment reached its destination in March / April of this year 2017 and sits there waiting to be used.
The US is not planning to leave and is hell-bend on having a war. Last week they announced that they would even go to war in Syria without consent of the UN. And without having the incentive of the threat of ISIS this is the next step.
And just a few days ago a massive convoy of Turkish military rolled into eastern Syria.
Iran has now already 13 bases in Syria and tens of thousands of troops. Foreign minister of Russia, Sergei Lavrov, has just stated that this Iranian presence is legitimate.
At the same time Israel is not pleased with Iranian presence just over 30 miles from their border. They have already fired on several targets inside Syria.
And finally, the events in Saudi Arabia are connected with Israel, Lebanon and the buildup of alliances for the war that is in the making.
Why is all of this so relevant? Because this is prophecy unfolding, just look at what scripture tells us:
How true has this become the past few years. But it is not over yet:
The climax of this pending conflict will be the total destruction of the city of Damascus. It will happen overnight:
Only a weapon of mass destruction can do that.
And we can clearly see that the main players of that other future war, known as the ‘Gog Magog war’ – as described in Ezekiel 38 and 39 – are taking their positions: Russia, Iran, Turkey.
Keep your eyes on Syria, it will come to pass! If you know the Lord Jesus, there is no fear, our redemption draws near.
