Saudi Arabia is tossed into the mix.
By Craig C. White
Please allow me to clear up a widely held misconception. The Syrian people are not revolting against their President Bashar Assad. The rebel forces fighting in Syria are foreign terrorists supported by the US, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. The US is supplying money, flour, and facilitating arms shipments all on a wide scale.
The rebels fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad consist mostly of Al-Qaeda terrorists from Libya. They call themselves “the Free Syrian Army”. Al-Qaeda fighters from northern Iraq or ISIS seem to be fighting to gain territory in Syria. Fighting against the rebels are Hezbollah jihadists from Iran and Sudan. Lately a new group of soldiers has joined the fight. They are yet another band of Al-Qaeda fighters from Saudi Arabia. You might think that these fighters would get along with the Al-Qaeda rebels from Libya but they don’t.
Al-Qaeda terrorists cause a lot of trouble in Saudi Arabia. Yet the Saudi government is supporting them in Syria. Saudi Arabia fears that Al-Qaeda from Libya or Hezbollah from Iran will gain the upper hand in a vanquished Syria. Saudi Arabia has taken a firm stand against Syria and its President. Saudi Arabia is arming Al-Qaeda in Syria as well as sending in its own Al-Qaeda terrorists. Saudi Arabia is also trying to deal with Russia to drop its support for Syrian President Assad. Russia has shown no interest in complying.
The arrival of Saudi fighters in Syria is significant in light of bible prophecy. Ezekiel 38:5 lists a small group of nations that will invade Israel led by Turkey. They are Libya, Iran, and Sudan. As mentioned above, all of these nations are fighting in Syria today! Saudi Arabia is also mentioned later on in Ezekiel 38. Sheba, and Dedan refer to Saudi Arabia in Ezekiel 38:13 below.
Eze 38:13Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
So what am I saying? Turkey will lead an invasion into Israel. Libya, Iran, and Sudan will be with them. Saudi Arabia is also involved. Ezekiel chapter 38 doesn’t necessarily implicate Saudi Arabia as part of the force that invades Israel, but they do obviously play a role. Although Al-Qaeda terrorists from Saudi Arabia are fighting in Syria, they may not participate in the invasion into Israel. Art thou come to take a spoil? This sort of reasoning sounds like a way for Saudi Arabia to condemn the actions of the invaders without actually taking action against them. I would expect to hear this sort of statement on the news shortly.
