The U.S. is bombing Syria but Turkey will destroy Damascus!

“President Trump stressed the need to intensify cooperation with Turkey with respect to shared strategic challenges in Syria.”

By Craig C. White

Wow what a week!  First there was an alleged chemical attack in Douma, a northeastern suburb of Damascus. Nobody knows if it really was a chemical attack or who did it. But this is being used to condone counter attacks by the U.S. and Turkey. Just a reminder, the so called innocent civilians in Ghouta and Douma are Al-Qaeda fighters and their families who have been shelling Damascus for months. Now that the Syrian Army has begun fighting back these Al-Qaeda fighters are being relocated to Idlib. Some 8,000 more Al-Qaeda fighters from Douma are being relocated to Idlib. I estimate that there are currently over 100,000 Turkish, Free Syrian Army, and Al-Qaeda fighters in Idlib. In Idlib they are certain to begin fighting against the Syrian Army in Hamah. That is what Jeremiah 49:23 predicts.

Then there was an airstrike on a Syrian military base that was home to an Iranian air-force headquarters. Of course Syria, Iran and Russia blame Israel. It is most likely true that Israel bombed the Iranian headquarters. Israel has been steadfast in saying that they will not tolerate Iran gaining a foothold in Syria. Israel is on its highest alert on its northern border with Syria. Iran has threatened to retaliate after the airstrike on the Iranian airbase in Syria.The airstrike will most likely heat up things on the Golan Heights between Israel and Syrian and Iranian forces.

Folks, a similar scenario took place in 734 BC. The Bible tells us all about it. Israel asked Assyria for help to fight against Syria. After Assyria conquered Syria then they invaded northern Israel. This is going to happen again. Today Israel needs help in order to prevent an all out Middle East war. Jeremiah describes the invasion of northwestern Syria and the destruction of Damascus. Today Turkey has invaded northwestern Syria. Turkish President Erdogan said that Turkey will not stop until Syrian President Assad is removed from power in Damascus. Ezekiel chapter 38 describes a Turkish led invasion into Israel. Every nation that is listed in Ezekiel 38:5 is now fighting in Syria. I wonder if Israel will ask Turkey for help to fight Syria on the Golan Heights? 

Last but not least, The U.S., Britain, and France conducted airstrikes in Syria. The latest news is that they targeted chemical weapons related facilities in a Syrian airbase in Homs. I have heard that some sites in and around Damascus, Syria’s capital may also be targets. We won’t know the extent of the bombing until the dust clears. In U.S. President Trump’s address to the nation he said that the U.S. would not stay in Syria but that he was strengthening partnerships with Middle Eastern allies. President Trump recently said that it was important to cooperate with Turkey in order to achieve U.S. objectives in Syria. In his national address Trump didn’t mention Turkey by name but Turkey is the only U.S. ally who has a strong military presence inside of Syria. Turkey also has the will to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus. Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes the Turkish conquest of northwestern Syria and the destruction of Damascus.

Here is a small observation. Russia moved their naval vessels out of harms way before the attack on Syria. During the attack Russia didn’t shoot at any advancing war planes. This ought to tell you that Russia is not willing to stick their necks out for Syrian President Assad. On that note, neither will Russia lead the Islamic nations into Israel. I’m talking about the Ezekiel chapter 38 battle of Gog and Magog. The idea that Russia is Gog and Magog is a popular misconception. Gog is Turkey and Magog is its ruler. After Turkey destroys Damascus they will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel.

The bombing of Syria isn’t the beginning of World War III but it may be a catalyst to finally mobilize the Turkish Army against the Syrian Army in Hamah and in Tell Rifaat just as Jeremiah 49:23 predicts. We may be seeing the beginning of one of the widest known prophecies in the Bible; namely the destruction of Damascus.

I have got news for Christians today. The Church age is almost over. The Tribulation period is about to begin. If you want to have any hope of escaping the terrible things that are coming upon the earth then you only have a few months to make your salvation certain.
