US strikes Syria after suspected chemical attack by Assad regime

So now it begins. Not only did the United States, Britain and France launch military strikes against Syrian chemical bases, but it has now been reported that Israel only hours later bombed an Iranian base near Aleppo Syria.

Of course these strikes have the other side, (Russia, Syria, Iran), threatening their own responses at both Israel and America. No idea if this is anything but bravado and bluster, or perhaps something more concrete and with the potential of descending into full-scale war. One thing it has done, and that is firm up the alliances for future confrontations between Israel, the West and the alliance which will eventually come against Israel, (the Gog/Magog alliance of Ezekiel 38/39).

With so much going on and with the potential of this becoming more that it presently is, we remember that God has asked us to pray for peace, ('blessed are the peacemakers'), and specifically for the peace of Israel and Jerusalem.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. Psalm 122:6

Stay tuned; It could be a very interesting next few days and weeks ahead.
God Bless, and if the Lord willing, we will post soon again.

US strikes Syria after suspected chemical attack by Assad regime
The United States, Britain and France launched precision military strikes in Syria to punish the Assad regime for an apparent chemical weapons attack against civilians.
