Ezekiel 38-39 says Russia allied with Turkey, Iran and others are going to invade Israel from the north. Look who is getting together to form an alliance for peace on Israel’s northern border in Syria.

August 8-9, 2017: Turkey, Iran, and Russia are having peace talks about “safe zones” in Syria. The location of the discussion is Tehran, Iran. This is according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

According to Lavrov, there are three operating safe zones in Syria. They include: southern Syria, Eastern Ghouta, and north of Homs. The focus of the peace talks is the Idlib province.

The safe zones were allegedly brokered on May 4, 2017. Turkey, Iran and Russia signed the deal to establish safe zones in Syria. More discussion is scheduled for later in August 2017.

This per the Daily Sabah out of Turkey.

August 9, 2017: A peace deal has been reached in Cairo, Egypt regarding a safe zone. The meeting was between the Russian Defense Ministry and Syrian opposition. The safe zone is the area between Hama (ancient Hamath of Jeremiah 49) and Homs. Again…Russia, Turkey, and Iran are the enforcers of the ceasefire.

This per Sputnik News out of Russia.

August 8, 2017: Israel has held secret talks with the Russians and the United States. Meetings reportedly took place in Europe and Jordan. The Israeli concern is the increased presence of Iranian troops near the border in the Golan Heights. Increased Iranian presence is an Israeli concern all across Syria.

Here is the official statement from Israel.

“Senior Israeli officials said that the main dispute was that the Americans and the Russians see the cease-fire in southern Syria and the safe zones as a practical and tactical means of stabilizing the situation and enable a focus on wiping out the Islamic State and lowering the flames of the civil war. Israel, however, believes that the agreement should be considered from a long-term, strategic perspective and should focus on what the extent of Iranian influence will be in Syria after the civil war ends.

The Israelis told their interlocutors that the agreement should provide a solution not regarding Iranian presence in the 20 kilometers from the Israeli border, but for the rest of Syria as well. A senior Israeli official said the Israelis told the Russians and the Americans that they had to demand from the Iranians that the Revolutionary Guards, Hezbollah and the Shi’ite militias in Syria must leave the country.”

More troops are going to be necessary to keep the peace. This is escalating faster than earlier plans revealed by the Russians.

IDP_2017_Final_with UN logo_WebIn case you didn’t know…The United Nations International Peace Day is scheduled for September 21, 2017. This also coincides with the start of God’s Appointed Fall Feasts. This year’s theme: Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.

For those who have not made a decision on Jesus Christ. You might want to think about it. Did He really die for sin?

Time to be vigilant and pay attention…

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.

Trend Update: Russian Military Police to “Safe Zone” Near Golan Heights, July 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 24, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:8 After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.

…you will be summoned…The “you” is Gog of Magog. The ancient land of Magog is largely regarded as modern day Russia by secular and Biblical scholars. Jewish rabbis generally contend Magog is Russia. Gog is the leader of Magog.

The time point is in the latter years. The prophet Ezekiel documented this book roughly 2,600 years ago. The Hebrew language describes the time period as being toward the end or the final period. So the question remains, is now the latter years?

…whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.

The nation of Israel was reborn in 1948 and recognized as a nation by the world. The mountains of Israel are located in the Golan Heights. Since 1948, Jews from around the world have migrated and returned back to the Promised Land. The land was a desert and barren until the return of its people.

The immigration of the chosen people back to the land is called “Aliyah”. Israel has a “Law of Return” granting citizenship to people of Jewish cultural heritage. Today the population of Israel is roughly 8.3 million per the latest census numbers. http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/israel-population/

Some would argue whether or not Israel is dwelling safely in light of all the terrorism. That piece of the prophecy is up for debate as of July 2017. We also know the future holds a faulty peace deal for the people of Israel.

The context of Ezekiel 38 is a future invasion of Israel from the north. Gog of Magog will lead this invasion through the mountains of Israel or the Golan Heights.

July 24, 2017: The Russian Defense Ministry issued the following statement. Russian military police are being introduced to “safe zones” in Syria. Ultimately, there are to be four “safe zones” in Syria. For now, Russian troops are being sent to two “safe zones”.

Two of these areas have yet to be established at this time. One is believed to be in the northwest part of Syria in the Idlib Province. The second is thought to be in the Homs Province. A new round of peace talks for these two “safe zones” is scheduled for late August in Kazakhstan.

One of the “safe zones” is the eastern suburb area of Damascus in the Ghouta region. At this time, nobody is following the ceasefire agreement and fighting continues. Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 tells us what ultimately happens to Damascus. It is a burden too heavy to carry.

The-Golan-Heights

The last “safe zone” is in southwest Syria on the Golan Heights border with Israel. The following is from Senior Commander Sergei Rudskoi.

“Moscow has also informed Israel of its deployment and that the nearest Russian position is 13 kilometers (about 8 miles) from the demarcation line between Israeli and Syrian troops in the Golan Heights.”

The Russian military buildup near Israel’s Golan Heights border has begun.
