CNBC: The sanctions will be lifted unless something happens that we are not happy with,” Trump says at the White House.

  • Trump also fires back against criticism leveled, even by members of his own party, that slammed his decision to pull American forces out of northern Syria as a major geopolitical misstep.

Opinion: First the US was getting out of Syria. Then the US was moving the troops to Iraq. Then the US threatened to go to war with Turkey, and today it is a permanent peace, sanctions are lifted, and the troops are coming home again. All that in just two weeks.

This is what happens to leaders when the Scriptures are ignored.

A deal that puts Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan in charge of Syria is paving the road to the fulfillment of prophecy. That the US is pulling out of the Middle East leaving Israel to fend for itself, validates the prophecy.

Barack Obama tried to pull out of Syria in 2013 with his infamous red line. President Trump is following suit, and before the next election, the US will likely have zero presence in the most volatile neighborhood in the world.

I can’t help but wonder what Ezekiel would say:

I warned you that a Russian prince (Ezek. 38:1-2 NIV) will amass such great power that he will bring Turkey, Iran and North Africa to attack Israel (38:3-6 NIV) in the last days to take her wealth.

I warned you that Israel will be living in a false peace after recovering from war (Ezek. 38:8 NIV)

I warned you that none of Israel’s so-called allies will come to her side (Ezek. 38:13 NIV)

I warned you that God will use the war and miraculous victory to bring His people to know that He is still watching out for them (Ezek. 39:22 NIV)

I warned you that after this war God’s people would return to the land (Ezek. 39:28 NIV)
