The Next Great World Headline!
Turkey Invades Syria!
By Craig C. White
The destruction of Damascus, Syria is foretold in Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, and Amos 1. Jeremiah 49:23 tells us that Damascus will be attacked from the Turkish border. Today Syria is at war. Syria is fighting for its sovereignty. This is not simply a civil war. This is a struggle to overthrow the Syrian government from the outside. World powers find Syria such an essential prize that they have taken sides. Most outside support has gone to the anti-Syria forces. The US has given Turkey Patriot Missiles and troops. The US has also given the rebels food. funding, weapons, and training. The rebels fighting in Syria have received advanced weapons. This is sure to escalate the violence.
Syria is now in its third year of fighting. It seems that they are no nearer to a conclusion. From a biblical perspective I expect the worse to happen in Syria. That is an outside invasion and the ruinous destruction of Damascus. Waiting for these events is nerve racking. I am impatient but that counts for very little. World powers also seem more impatient. They are calling for military action against Damascus. I think that they will strike Syria when they see a possibility that they might lose their prize. If it looks like the current Syrian regime is getting the upper hand then the world will act swiftly and harshly.
Ezekiel 38 tells us about an invasion into Israel led by Turkey. Turkey leads Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. All of these nations are now fighting in Syria. In 734 BC the Assyrian King Tiglath-pileser led an invasion into Syria and then turned south to invade Israel. According to Old Testament prophets this ancient invasion is a harbinger to a similar future invasion. This future invasion is led by the Antichrist.
I expect the headlines to soon read “Turkey Invades Syria”. That is terrible news. Even worse news is that shortly after Turkey invades Syria and destroys Damascus I expect the headlines to read “Turkey leads invasion into Israel!”
These are the major events that usher in the end of the Church age and the beginning of the time of Israel’s sorrow.
