Debkafile: “For the first time in the five-year Syrian conflict, Saudi Arabia is preparing to supply Syrian rebel groups with anti-air and anti-tank missiles in an attempt to stall Russia’s military efforts to extend Bashar Assad’s days in power. Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the defense minister, is choreographing this escalated Saudi intervention in the Syrian war.
He plans to arm Syrian rebels militias with missiles capable of striking the new Russian T-90 tanks, which debkafile’s intelligence sources disclose were shipped directly to the Syrian army’s armed divisions in the last two weeks from the Russian Black Sea base of Novorossiysk.
The big Russian landing craft Novocherkassk, which unloaded a further supply of tanks at Tartus port on Thursday.”
Opinion: How interesting form a prophetic view. Saudi Arabia has a big role in the wars of the last days.
Psalm 83:4 tells us that the Ishmaelites are part of a 7 nation Arab invasion force against Israel. With the exception of Syria which is 13% Shia, the invasion force is made up of Sunni armies.
Islam teaches that it was Ishmael who was to be sacrificed on Mt. Moriah and later settled in the Arabian Peninsula.
And isn’t it interesting that neither Saudi Arabia or any of the other nation in the Psalm 83 alliance are mentioned in the next prophesied war found in Ezekiel 38-39.
In that war (Gog and Magog) Saudi Arabia, along with Britain and America are found to be powerless only asking if the invasion force is coming to take plunder (Ez. 38:13).
In the final war of Armageddon, though the Saudi’s are not named specifically, Daniel 11:40 teaches that the King of the South and king of the North will rise up against Antichrist who came to do battle with Christ upon His return.
Since Armageddon is a global war as prophesied in Luke 21:20, the King of the South, Egypt, will likely include all Sunni Muslim nations who are still able to muster an army, to the south of Israel.
