The New American: Further illustrating what would at least appear to be the incredible absurdity of what passes for U.S. government “foreign policy,” Sunni jihadist “rebels” in Syria backed by al-Qaeda and the Obama administration have been battling against Shia militias that have also been backed by Obama.
Both sides are fighting with American weapons, according to news reports. How much money U.S. taxpayers forked over to arm the two warring Islamic factions was not immediately clear. But the enormous human tragedy on the ground is getting worse quickly.”
Opinion: Sorting out the chaos in Syria:
- John Kerry’s frenetic diplomacy has led to what’s being called a “cease-fire agreement” in Syria that begins at the end of this week.
- Under the deal, ISIS and the al-Qaida-linked al Nusra — the main anti-Assad forces — won’t stop fighting. Only U.S. allies will.
- Russia, Iran and Assad’s Syrian forces can continue their destruction of Aleppo without breaching the cease-fire.
- Bashar Assad’s government forces, the same ones the US is trying to defeat, are poised to win biggest victory of the war.
- John Kerry prepares his Nobel Peace Price speech while Russia and Iran toast champagne, again.
According to the Bible’s timeline this is not going to lead to World War III, at least right now. That war, when it comes, will be at the end of the 7 year tribulation period and involve 4 global power blocs that are only in the formation stage of existence right now.
Two world shaking regional wars involving Israel must come first.:
- A 10 nation Arab assault on Israel (Psalm 83:1-8)
- A 7 nation sneak attack led by Russia (Ezekiel 38:1-6)
Armageddon can only take place when all the Jews are back (Ezekiel 39:28) in the land so that God can protect them:
“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Matthew 24:15-16
According to Daniel 9:27, the abomination takes place at the mid-way point( 42 months) of the tribulation when Antichrist stands in the 3rd temple and declares himself god.
The Jews will flee to the mountain fortress of Petra (southern Jordan) that has bee desolate (Jeremiah 49:17) since the 6th century BC when God moved the Edomite Tribes into Southern Israel.
(See Bible Prophecy 101, chapter 10 for the 4 power blocs of Armageddon)
