Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.”
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…
Historically, Iran has been called Persia until the name change in the 20th century. Iran is a key player in the Ezekiel 38-39 narrative. The Bible says Iran will be aligned with modern day Russia and Turkey for an invasion of the mountains of Israel.
August 28, 2017: Iran continues to fill the void of a defeated ISIS. Initially, Iran was building a single missile factory. Now, Israel is reporting multiple missile factories are being built in Syria and Lebanon.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel had the following comments.
“(Iran’s) base of military entrenchment as part of its declared goal to eradicate Israel. It is also building sites to produce precision-guided missiles towards that end, in both Syria and in Lebanon. This is something Israel cannot accept. This is something the U.N. should not accept.”
Israel is prepared to act independently to stop Iran’s military expansion in Syria.
Israel has also stated a defined objective. An Israeli official stated President Assad’s palace would be targeted. Assad’s palace is located in Damascus, Syria. Israel sees the situation inside of Syria changing rapidly with Iran asserting itself in the country.
Israel states they will not acknowledge cease fire agreements reached by the United States and Russia.
Trouble is building in Syria and throughout the Middle East. Iran is replacing ISIS. Shia Muslims are replacing Sunni.
Consider the Burden of Damascus (Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49:23-27) and Magog’s Invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39) happening at the same time. Iran moving into Syria may be the catalyst. It is starting to look like this is a possibility. God has options.
