Russia and Iran are about to part ways in Syria
Iran and Syria are preparing to attack Israel from Syria’s southern border.

Russia and Iran are about to part ways in Syria. This is big news. Russia and Iran have been allies of Syrian President Assad. Russia only wants a stable Syria so that they can ship oil from Syria’s warm water ports. Iran however has different goals. Iran is setting up military bases throughout Syria and especially bases that will serve to attack Israel. Iran wants more turmoil while Russia wants less.
After the recent Israeli airstrike on an Iranian airbase in Syria, Iran vowed to retaliate. Israel has made it clear that they will not accept Iranian military build-up inside of Syria. The U.S. airstrikes on Syrian chemical weapons facilities have steeled Syria’s and Iran’s resolve to attack Israel.
Last week Syria violated a decades old peace agreement by placing Syrian tanks in the demilitarized zone of the Golan Heights. The Golan Heights are a buffer zone that divide Syria from Israel.
There is a power struggle happening in Iran. Iranian president Rouhani rules the country but on the field Major General Qasem Soleimani leads the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or Quds Force. Soleimani controls territory from Iraq to Syria. The economy in Iran is terrible and the citizens of Iran are in revolt. General Soleimani has a strong hand. Soleimani is inclined to start a war with Israel despite what Russia or even Iranian President Rouhani dictate.
If you watch the news closely then you have noticed that the message of the day is that Iran and Syria are about to start a major conflict with Israel.
My fellow Christians, this is to be expected. This is Bible prophecy unfolding. I’m certain that the Syrian and Iranian skirmish will be dramatic but it won’t be the main event. Syria and Iran fighting on the Golan Heights will be a catalyst for Turkey to finally destroy Damascus and then to lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. This is described in Ezekiel chapter 38.
The events that we can expect to happen before Turkey invades Israel also happened long ago. They are described in 2Kings chapter 16 and 17. In 734 BC Israel asked Assyria for help fighting against Syria. Assyria conquered Syria and then invaded northern Israel.
Today Israel is once again having trouble on its northern border. Iran and Syria are amassing on the Golan Heights. This time Turkey will destroy Damascus and then lead Iran, the Free Syrian Army, and Al-Qaeda into northern Israel.
In the Bible the Antichrist is compared to the ancient Assyrian kings. The reenactment of the Assyrian conquest of Syria and the following invasion of northern Israel identifies the Antichrist. It’s High Time to Awake.
