Interfax: The Russian military police will deploy eight posts in the vicinity of the demilitarized zone near the Golan Heights on the Syrian-Israeli border, and the first such post has already been set up in the populated locality of Al-Wesiyah, Col. Viktor Zaitsev, deputy commander of the Russian group of forces in Syria in charge of the military police.
“We are now in Al-Wesiyah in the Al-Quneitra governorate, where the first stationary observation post of the Russian military police has been deployed. Another seven posts will be set up in the future. All of them will act as a guarantor of security for civilians in the Al-Quneitra governorate,” Zaitsev said.
The Russian flag raised in this territory will act as a guarantee for the local population that “peace has come to this land forever,” he said. Read More …
Opinion: What a backdrop for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled!
“You will come from your place in the far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. 16 You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land.” Ezekiel 38:15-16
This mighty army from the far north is a Russian alliance led by a prince called Gog (Ez. 38:1-2). That Russia has taken a position in Syria puts Gog in closer proximity for the attack. With hooks in the jaw, Gog will bring in Turkey, Iran, and their North African allies who have been busy in recent years providing weapon sales and forming economic (Ez. 38:3-5) partnerships.
From a geopolitical view, the attack feels like it could happen at any moment except for two verses:
“After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war” Ez. 38:8.
Ezekiel didn’t tell us what war, but if we read a little further we find that it must be one that wipes out Israel’s hostile neighbors:
‘You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars” Ezekiel 38:11.
Israel has not had one day of peace since May 14, 1948, and has been building walls and gates non-stop to protect its citizens. And Israel is anything but unsuspecting having built two of the best intel/security agencies in the world in Shin Bet and Mossad.
One war prophesied 3000 years ago fits Ezekiel 38:8 like a glove. Psalm 83:1-8 lists every one of Israel’s irascible neighbors by their ancient name with a battle cry that sounds like it was written yesterday:
“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”
