Bible Prophecy 2014-2015 Timeline
By Craig C. White
Welcome to 2015! In an attempt to organize upcoming prophetic events I have created the Bible Prophecy 2014-2015 Timeline. The accuracy of this timeline is not definite. However we can be certain of a few things.
First the destruction of Damascus, Syria is forming now! How long will the siege of Damascus last? I don’t know. Jeremiah 49 seems to describe a prolonged siege with mass casualties. I think that Jeremiah tells us that Damascus will not surrender until the last man is dead. Jeremiah also tells us that Damascus will be attacked from the Turkish border! For a blow by blow description of the coming invasion of Syria please read my commentary titled “The Nations are Disquieted over Syria” in my eBook “Nation by Nation Verse by Verse”.
Second we can highly expect that the Turkish led invasion into Israel will happen after the destruction of Damascus. This invasion is known as the battle of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel chapter 38. Every nation that is involved in the battle of Gog and Magog is presently fighting in Syria. I don’t think that it will be very long after Damascus is destroyed that these armies will turn south a few miles to invade Israel.
It is my interpretation that Daniel 7:5 tells us about the formation of a Russian Union. I only suspect that the fall of Syria to Turkey and to the Muslim Brotherhood will prompt Russia to conquer several nations on its western border. The formation of this Russian Union may partially be a military campaign but Russia may also add countries to its Union through diplomacy. The creation of the Central Asian Union will probably happen after the formation of the Russian Union since that is the order that they are presented in Daniel chapter 7. The formation of the Central Asian Union may not happen in 2014 or 2015. For an explanation of the formations of these end time Unions please read my commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!” in my eBook “The Fall of Satan and Rise of the Antichrist”.
Something that we can be more certain about are the dates of the lunar and solar eclipses in Jerusalem. As far as I know the Bible doesn’t spell out specific events that happen on these dates, but it will certainly be interesting to watch. In the past these celestial signs marked significant events that happened during the same or following years, not necessarily events that happened on those specific days. I would keep an eye on March 20, 2015. That is the first day of the Hebrew calendar. One year after God appointed this day as the first of the year Moses set up the tabernacle. Perhaps Israel will begin a one year preparation to erect a temple and resume animal sacrifice?
I am sure that you are all aware that Egypt is in turmoil. The nation is operating under a temporary transitional government. Egypt’s fierce king could pop up at any time, or ousted President Morsi could reemerge, or both could happen. Recently Egypt’s interim government quit. This may create a power vacuum that allows Egypt’s fierce king to take control.
All you hear about these days is ISIS in northern Iraq and Syria. Is ISIS in Mosul talked about in the Bible? Yes it is. The prophet Nahum says that God will destroy the bloody city with a flood. ISIS will wreak havoc for a short time. Mosul’s fall will be sudden. I cover ISIS in Bible prophecy in my brand new eBook “The End of ISIS is near!“.
