Russian Military Base Near Golan Heights

1 Comment

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.

God is talking to Gog of Magog who is in charge of Meshech and Tubal. Gog is the leader of what many scholars and historians believe to be modern day Russia. See the link below for detailed analysis.

The focus of the verse is the size of the army arrayed by Gog.

…and all your army…The Hebrew word for “all” is kol. Simply put, it means the whole or all of the army.

It is stated a second time, all of them clothed in full armor…Again it is the term kol in the Hebrew. This group is well dressed and has provision to fight. Their gear is “splendid” or miklol. This word could be translated as perfection or gorgeous. The army looks impressive.

A third time, the army is described as a great host. They are rab in the Hebrew which can be stated as much, many, or great.

And finally a fourth time, all of themYes, it is the word kol. This is emphasized four times. This is a massive army that is well armed and prepared to attack and defend. Definitions provided by Strong’s Concordance.

Russian armed forces first came into northern Syria in late 2015. Since then, the Russians have reached the Golan Heights on the border with Israel.

Russia now has a naval base in Latakia, Syria on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Russian Air Force bases are located throughout Syria. Turkey is looking to purchase and build the Russian S400 Missile Defense System. Russia has deployed the S400 and S300 Missile Defense Systems in Syria. Armed ground forces are actively engaged throughout the country of Syria.

July 7, 2017: Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the United States’ Donald Trump agreed to a cease fire in southwest Syria. The ceasefire in the southwest Syria “safe zone” started on July 9, 2017.

July 19, 2017: Russian troops are essentially on the Israeli and Syrian border at Quneitra, Syria. Russian troops are delivering humanitarian aid of food, basic goods, and medical care and supplies.

July 24, 2017: Russian military police were introduced to “safe zones” in southwest Syria in the Golan Heights near Quneitra, Syria.

August 1, 2017: Israeli Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren made the following statement to Sputnik News out of Russia.

“According to our legislation, the Golan Heights are an independent part within Israel. If anyone keeps thinking that this question has yet to be discussed, it is naive of them.” -Israeli Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren

If now is the time Ezekiel is discussing, the military buildup is just getting started. It will be massive and overwhelming.

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.

    Israel is Gods people and will always be Gods people… The Apostle Paul said it in Romans chp 11 and also the prophet Jeremiah 31:31-40 God has preserved his people for 2,0000 years and brought them back to the land exactly how he said he would in his word..the jews that are in Israel today are real Israelites…also in Revelation 7:4 talks about the 144,000 from each tribe.. so there should be no doubt to who they are..
