Iranian and Russian personel and small forces are in Syria. Turkey is amassing a small force of military hardware and armies north of Syria. Lybia has shown it is a small nuesance, while Sudan's Islamic army causes headaches in North Africa. You put Egypt as a new enemy of Israel, we are seeing prophetic geo-political moves in the Middle East. As I said, I think we may be a little ways off just because of certain geo-political developments, but it would not surprise me one bit if I am wrong. Time will tell.
According to the ancient prophets, Israel does not attack, but is attacked by the demonic union of nations spoken above minus Egypt, which is spoken in Ezekiel 38/39. In due time Egypt will get involved. It is important to understand this as we look at the near future in the Middle East. Israel cannot successfully take out the Iranian nuclear program without the help from the West. I do not see how it is possible without that help, so I suspect Israel's attack plans rely heavily on Europe and America. I do believe a skirmish on Israel's northern border may bring about the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17), which in turn may be the catalyst of the Gog/Magog War spoken above in Ezekiel 38/39. I amy be wrong, but it sounds sensible. A chemical war between Israel and Hezbollah/Syria, and then the world will be against Israel because of the destruction of Damscus just as the Russian/Iranian alliance attacks.
I do know the Scriptures speak about the Israelites being at peace. In a sense they are even with the threat of war today. Israelites still go to school, work, and celebrate festivals. America today is under a threat of economic calamity, but yet Americans go about life in ignorance, so it will be in Israel. Israel is ripe for the events of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38/39.
I will be in Louisville, Kentucky tomorrow. I suspect a good diagnosis, but prayer is needed for great health. I will share more as I know exactly what is going on with me. I feel great, look healthy for a 37 year old, but I do know something is going on within my body. It is not cancer, but by tomorrow I will know. Thank you for your emails and support.
P.S. This commentary had to be done on IPAD, so the look and means about doing this is different. Spelling mistakes are probably there. God Bless.
