We have been reading the news as of late and we all know Syria is ground zero for this particular incident. But let me lay some information on anyone who truly wants to know. I've been studying this stuff for nearly 15 years now and there is alot to cover so I'll try to break it down and lay it out in a way that perhaps you'll understand.
If you don't want to read, or you don't believe, this is YOUR personal choice. All I ask is that you don't hinder others who may find it interesting to know
First, i want to lay key scriptures down as they pertain to this whole middle east mess.
Scriptural references, not in particular order**
Ezekiel 38 ( knows as the GOG Magog war) where an alignment of nation will come against Israel to destroy her, those nations are: reference link
Gog and Magog (Russia), then, Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya, Gomer and Togarmah( both settled after the flood in what is now known as turkey), Sheba, and Dedan (are known as Yemen and Saudi Arabia), Tarshish (the UK) and with all the young lions ( the US) as the US came out of England in the beginning then, other nations later through immigration at Ellis Island.
Next scripture.. ISAIAH 17. starts out stating Syria will be taken away from being a city(destroyed) and becoming a ruinous heap (Verse1) the destruction of Damascus ends in verse 14 where there will be trouble during the evening then, the morning it is not a city anymore.
then there is Joel 2:30-32 verse 30 details that there will be a war. Verse 31 the sun shall be turned to darkness (solar eclipse), the moon into blood(lunar eclipse). How do I know this? I go all the way back to Genesis 1:14. God put light in the firmament(space) to be for signs, seasons, days and years. So as a billboard to let us know what is going on.
So what happens to the Palestinians(Edomites?) Ezekiel 35, known as the curse against Mt. Seir. Promises to destroy the Palestinians, Edomites and make them desolate. which is why they are getting killed by the Israelis now for their perpetual hatred of Israel and killing the Jews.
For the next 2 years, there will be 4 blood moons(lunar eclipses) and in the middle a solar eclipse(sun turned to darkness) also known as a "Tetrad". they are RARE and there have been only 3 tetrads in the 5,000+ years during the life of the Earth.
2014 on passover and sukkot(feast of tabernacles), March 2015 a solar eclipse,then the next month on passover a blood moon and finally again on sukkot(tabernacles).
Nasa has a website that uses mathematics to determine lunar and solar eclipses. They are stating a tetrad will happen during 2014 and 2015. I found a video whereby a Pastor with the help of Jewish rabbis in better explaining this.
now a little history of the past tetrads:
the first was in 1492 with the edict of eviction of the jewish out of spain by the king and queen of spain
the second one was when Israel became a nation about 1949/1950.
the last one was in 1967, the Yom Kippur war when Israel took Jerusalem.
2014/2015?? I "think and believe" that Israel could possibly take the temple mount.news out of Israel has stated that the Israelis have created all the artifacts, high priest clothing, trained the priest, EVERYTHING so all they need to do is build the next temple.
So.. I See Syria being the start quite possibly for all of this being made manifest. Syria has already threatened Israel should the US attack. my dad this evening tells me Syria is also threatening Saudi Arabia a kingdom versus kingdom definitely bringing Matthew 24 in to full view
Matthew 24:6-8 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (refer above to Joel 2:30-32 please)
I see alot of what I studied coming together to a head.we shall see...
