JPost: After seven years of deadly civil war that has involved superpowers and dozens of rebel and jihadist groups, the Syrian regime has regained 70% of the country with the help of Russian air power and Iranian-backed foot soldiers.

The offensive on Beit Jinn – near the rebel-held city of Quneitra along the Israeli border – has Israel concerned. It is part of Assad’s push to reassert control of the remaining rebel-held areas of the countryside west of Damascus.

Israel “cannot tolerate the Iranians and its tentacles, like Hezbollah, to establish themselves on the Golan,” he said. “The question isn’t what the Syrian regime is doing, the question is, is it a cover for Iran and Hezbollah to create ‘Hezbollah-land’ on Israel’s border.”

 “The situation today is that Syria is breathing from the lungs of other countries,” Kedar said. “The full name of Syria is ‘the Syrian Arab Republic.’ But is it really still Arab and Syrian, or is it sustained by Russia, Turkey and Iran?”  more …

Opinion: Even after all this time it still astounds me to see the eventual fulfillment of Bible prophecy in headlines.

Russia, Turkey and Iran are the subject of thousands of our posts. That all three nations  are present and becoming entrenched just over the mountains of the Golan, and all three are prophesied to attack Israel from there is just amazing:

“I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel.” Ezekiel 39:2

What is so crazy is that if Russian, Iranian and Turkish leaders would read just two verses more they would know their fate:

“You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.” Ezekiel 39:4

Even the secular world knows that Russia, Iran and Turkey are stealth enemies of the Jewish state. I get the feeling that the Middle East is one or two globe-shaking events away from an invasion.

Not necessarily in order:

  • The total destruction of Damascus fulfilling Isaiah 17:1,14
  • Psalm 83 Arab invasion of Israel sponsored by Russia, Iran and Turkey
  • A major oil find fulfilling Genesis 49:25, Deuteronomy 33:19, Isaiah 45:3
