Syria only the beginning
Turkey invades Israel!
By Craig C. White
New World Order types have been fighting to unify the Middle East under the mantle of the Muslim Brotherhood. They had Egypt under Muslim Brotherhood control and lost it. That made them furious. They’ll be darned if they allow Syria to slip the grip of Islamist rule. The US has threatened to attack Syria. If that happens then Russia has threatened to attack Saudi Arabia.
Who will attack Syria and destroy Damascus? I think that I will stick to the biblical model for this invasion. In 734 BC the Assyrian empire conquered Syria and then turned immediately south and attacked northern Israel. In 701 BC Assyria returned to attack southern Israel. Do I think that Assyria will attack Syria again? No, but I do think that the man called “the Assyrian” in Isaiah chapter 10 will attack Syria and destroy Damascus. This Assyrian isn’t from Assyria. The modern day Assyrian is from Turkey.
The bible predicts that Damascus Syria will be destroyed in the last days before a terrible time of God’s judgment on earth and before the day that Jesus Christ returns to defeat Israel’s enemies.
Isa 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
The Destruction of Damascus is a prophecy that seems to stand alone but it turns out that it is only the first in a sequence of even more dramatic and telling events. Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us about a Turkish led invasion into Israel. Turkey is accompanied by Iran, Sudan, and Libya (Ezekiel 38:5). Saudi Arabia is also mentioned in Ezekiel 38:13. Guess what? All of these nations are fighting in Syria today! Plus the Turkish army is aligned along the Syria border. The scene is set for the Ezekiel 38 battle of Gog and Magog. I know that Magog is a strange word but he is one of Noah’s grandsons. He is described as the most prominent prince amongst his brothers (Ezekiel 38:2). Today Magog represents the “primary governor” of Turkey. I would call him the Prime Minister of Turkey. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is the modern day fulfillment of Magog in Ezekiel 38. I think that he is also the fulfillment of the Assyrian in Isaiah 10.
After the destruction of Damascus, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan will lead Al-Qaeda terrorists from Libya and also Hezbollah jihadists from Iran and Sudan in an invasion into Israel. As if this wasn’t bad enough, the bible identifies the leader of this invasion as the Antichrist. To put a little more fire under your britches, the revealing of the Antichrist is the sign that the Rapture of the Church is eminent!
