Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of April 8 - April 14, 2018

Most everybody that visits this blog will likely be aware of this weeks events which suggest a steady march towards a Middle-East confrontation between an American led alliance and one backed by the Russians. All due to new accusations that the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria conducted a chemical weapons attack against civilians in Douma, Syria. It just so happens that exactly 1 year ago, (April 2017), Syria was also accused of conducting a chemical attack against rebel forces. After that event, the Trump administration in Washington D.C. authorized a series of missile strikes against Syrian military targets.

The world is now expected to believe that Bashar al-Assad is so obtuse as to once again use chemical weapons against his own people, (Syrians), and not expect the same response from Western governments. If one didn't know any better, one would conclude that a cadre of behind the scenes power brokers are once again trying to bring about world war for their own nefarious purposes, (world government).

It is not just ourselves that are scratching our heads over the dubious nature of the accusations and the resulting pounding of the war drums, (see videos and articles below). Even noted Fox News personalities such as Tucker Carlson are asking questions as to the believability of the accusations and whether or not there is enough evidence to support a military response against Syria. Such a response could easily lead to an actual hot war between the West, (America/Britain), and Russia, (ally of Syria/Iran). This may be exactly what the behind the scenes elites are looking for as it would change the look of the world forever. It has been noted that World War 1 brought about the League of Nations and World War 2 brought about the United Nations. Could World War 3 bring about a New World Order, (Kingdom of Antichrist)?

Bible prophecy tells us much about wars in the Last Days; Most prophecy scholars identify Russia, Iran and Turkey as the main players in an alliance of nations, (Ezekiel 38/39), which will eventually launch an invasion attack on the Jewish State, (Israel). They will be joined by several other Islamic/Arab nations in the quest to destroy Israel. According to the same Ezekiel prophecy, the Western nations along with what appears to be Saudi Arabia, will make diplomatic protestations against this invasion, but will not actually support the Jewish State militarily. Additionally, we are told that Damascus Syria will be destroyed, (Isaiah 17), at some future time due to war mongering against Israel. and that Iran, (Elam), will also be brought to ruin with the destruction of it's nuclear program, (Jeremiah 49:35-37).

Watching the events now playing out before our eyes certainly has us taking notice and wondering if what we are seeing is the beginning of the fulfillment of these age old bible prophecies. If they are, then the return of Jesus Christ is far closer than most people realize. The return of Jesus Christ would certainly impact a nation like the United States beyond most, due to the high percentage of Christ followers in that nation. The catching away of the Bride of Christ would destabilize the United States and make it a paper tiger in any potential Middle-East confrontation. Just as it would seem to suggest in the Ezekiel prophecy. Why else would the West only protest an invasion attempt rather than join forces with Israel to repel such an attack? Of course God wants the playing field to himself as he looks to destroy the invaders and proves himself once again to the hard headed Jews.

‘I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel. It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of. Ezekiel 39:7-8 NIV

So as always, keep a watch on the Middle-East as it is God's time clock and gives us insight into the return of God's only son, Jesus Christ. When you begin to see all these things, look up, for your redemption draws very close.

Until next week. Maranatha

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War

A prophecy against Damascus: "See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. Isaiah 17:1 NIV
In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us. Isaiah 17:14 NIV

So just what happened?:

Dozens dead in 'one of worst chemical strikes in Syrian history'
The US has called on Russia to end its support for the Syrian regime after at least 70 people were killed in an alleged chemical attack. The State Department in Washington said it was closely following the "disturbing reports" from the city of Douma in eastern Ghouta, which an aid group with links to opposition forces in the region said had been subjected to "one of the worst chemical attacks in Syrian history" late on Saturday. As well as the dead, more than 500 other civilians were injured in the strike, the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisations (UOSSM) told Sky News.
