Iran at war with Israel – Bible prophecy happening in Syria!
The beginning of the destruction of Damascus
By Craig C. White
May, 9 2018: Iran and Israel are fighting in Syria!
Do you know what happened in 734 BC? Well it’s about to happen again. If we understand Bible prophecy and Bible history then we should expect things to heat up between Syria and Israel. Today Iran and Syria are at war with Israel.
In 734 BC Israel was also having trouble on its northern border with Syria. 2Kings chapters 16 and 17 tell us all about it. In 734 BC Israel asked Assyria (or northern Iraq today) for help to fight against Syria. After Assyria conquered Syria and took Damascus they then attacked northern Israel. This is a model for the end time events that are unfolding now. Iran is at war with Israel in Syria but Israel may ask Turkey for help. I think that Turkey will destroy Damascus!
The destruction of Damascus begins in northwestern Syria. In the following verse, Hamah and Arpad are two cities in northwestern Syria. The Turkish Army is amassed outside of these two cities now. Arpad is called Tell Rifaat today.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
Turkish President Erdogan said that the Turkish Army will attack Tell Rifaat next. Erdogan said that he will not stop until Syrian President Assad is removed from power in Damascus. So we can see that Turkey intends to attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat soon. Turkey also plans to conquer Damascus just like Jeremiah predicts.
Ezekiel chapter 38 describes a Turkish led invasion into Israel. Every nation that is listed in Ezekiel 38:5 is now fighting in Syria. Ezekiel chapter 38 describes the battle of Gog and Magog. There is a popular misconception that Russia is Gog and Magog but the truth is that 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. That includes Iran. Iran is listed as Persia in the following verse.
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Israel and Iran are now fighting in Syria. Christians are saying that “World War III has begun!” Nobody understands what truly is coming. The fact that Israel is at war in 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. The war in Syria may bring the Turkish Army southward to destroy Damascus.
My fellow Christians, the war between Iran and Syria, and Israel is to be expected. This is Bible prophecy unfolding. I’m certain that the skirmish between Iran and Israel will be dramatic but it won’t be the main event. The war at Syria’s southern border will be a catalyst for Turkey to finally destroy Damascus. These events also happened long ago. Israel is at war with Iran in Syria, but that isn’t the big news. The bigger news is that Turkey will destroy Damascus in the guise of helping Israel BUT after Turkey destroys Damascus they will then lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria 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. That means that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist! It’s High Time to understand end time Bible prophecy. It’s High Time to Awake.
