Jeremiah 46:10 That day is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, to avenge Himself on His foes. The sword shall devour and be sated and drink its fill of their blood. For the Lord GOD of hosts holds a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

The context of Jeremiah 46 is the pending judgment of Egypt at the hands of Babylon’s Nebuchadnezzar. Egypt and Babylon were the world powers of their day. History shows that Egypt received their judgment per the prophet at the hands of the Babylonians. The area discussed is near ancient Carchemish on the Euphrates River. This is the modern day area of the northern part of Lake Assad on the Euphrates in Syria.

Today in the 21st century, military conflict is taking place again on the Euphrates River. The same areas on the Euphrates River are the source of major conflict. As in the past, fighting started near the Syrian/Turkish border and moved south along the river. Operation Euphrates Wrath has moved east to the city of Raqqa, Syria.

June 6, 2017: The battle to remove ISIS from Raqqa, Syria has begun. The United States is supporting the Kurds and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

“We declare today the beginning of the great battle to liberate the city of Raqqa, the alleged capital of terrorism and terrorists. Morale is high and military readiness to implement the military plan is complete, in coordination with the US-led coalition,” Talal Sillo, spokesman for the SDF.

As the campaign into Raqqa begins, the terrorist group Hezbollah from Lebanon is threatening the United States. The US is being warned not to cross “red lines”.

For the second time in less than three weeks, the US has bombed Iranian supported forces in southern Syria.

“Despite previous warnings, pro-regime forces entered the agreed-upon de-confliction zone with a tank, artillery, anti-aircraft weapons, armed technical vehicles and more than 60 soldiers,” US coalition forces.

The US is also suspected of bombing a van near Deir el-Zour, Syria.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan is also warning the United States.

“Those who justify terrorist organizations for the sake of their regional policies by depicting them as militia, instead of taking a decisive stance, will soon realize they made a vital mistake,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has accused the United States of violating International Law with the military strikes.

In the past, King Josiah of Israel wanted to intervene in the conflict in 2 Chronicles 35:20-27. King Neco of Egypt warned Josiah not to intervene. Josiah did not listen and met his end. The location was a place called Megiddo…

2 Chronicles 35:22 Nevertheless, Josiah did not turn away from him, but disguised himself in order to fight with him. He did not listen to the words of Neco from the mouth of God, but came to fight in the plain of Megiddo.

The next time a Jewish king intervenes in a war in Meggido, the result will be quite different.

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
