Trend Update: U.S. Bombs Syrian Forces, September 2016

September 17, 2016: Syria has claimed the United States has bombed their forces. The incident took place at Jebel Tharda near Deir al-Zor airport. The airport is located in eastern Syria on the Euphrates River. This area has been surrounded by ISIS. The bombing allowed ISIS to take control.

There is conflicting information regarding who controls the area. ISIS says they are in control. Russia and Syria say they are in control.

Syria states the bombing is “conclusive evidence” the United States is supporting ISIS. The Syrian army states the act is “dangerous and blatant aggression”. Dozens of Syrian soldiers have been killed.

“Syria is a complex situation with various military forces and militias in close proximity, but coalition forces would not intentionally strike a known Syrian military unit,” U.S. officials said.

The United States and Russia had agreed on a cease fire in Syria last week. Russia has consistently backed the Assad Syrian army during the civil war. The United States has called for a regime change in Syria.

Russia has called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations. ABC News is reporting the United States is upset with Russia for calling the UN meeting.

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?’

Many people ask the question. Where is the United States in Bible prophecy? The simple answer, the United States is not there. Some take Tarshish to be Great Britain and the British Empire. A young lion of the British Empire would be the United States… so goes the thinking. Even if that is the case, Tarshish and its young lions are going to do nothing and watch a Russian invasion of Israel as prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39. Do your own homework. Investigate and come to your own conclusion.

Trend Update: Russia (Magog)/Israel, Ezekiel 38-39, February 2016

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2016 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, ‘Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?

Who are Sheba and Dedan? They are first mentioned in Genesis 10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

Seba-Dedan2

The family tree starts with Noah, then his son Ham, then his son Cush, then his son Raamah and his sons Sheba and Dedan.

Historically, per Strong’s Concordance and NET Bible, Raamah settled in the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula. Sheba settled in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Dedan settled in the northern Arabian Peninsula. These areas make up what is modern day Saudi Arabia.

Dedan was an ancient capital of Saudi Arabia. It is modern day Al Ula in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Tarshish is a term and people that is difficult to define. Some believe Tarshish to be nations of the northern Mediterranean. Some believe Tarshish to be Spain. Either way, this region appears to be modern day Western Europe.

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. Gog is their leader. See attached post.

The brothers of Magog appear to be linked to modern day Turkey. They include Gomer, Meshech, and Tubal. Historically, Turkey is also known as the House of Togarmah. See the link below for specifics.

In the last weeks (prior to February 14, 2016), there has been a military build on the borders of Turkey. Alliances are being formed.

On one side we have NATO (United States and European Union) with Turkey as an organization member. Turkey is now being supported with military hardware from Saudi Arabia. Both Turkey and Saudi Arabia are Sunni Muslim nations.

On the other side we have Russia, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon. These Muslim nations in alliance with Russia are Shia.

For the first time in history, Israel will be exporting natural gas. Israel has recently contracted with Turkey to sell natural gas. The deal is worth $1.3 billion. The Leviathan reserve is online and open for business. Delivery to Turkey is expect to begin in 2019.

Israel already has an agreement with Cyprus. Delivery is expected to begin in 2019. A further connection to Greece is also under consideration.

This is going to cut into Russian energy market share.

The Russian economy is in the tank. Inflation is spreading in Russia due to a weak ruble. $1 is equal to 80 rubles. Hyperinflation is starting to occur throughout the nation. Translation…that is an expensive loaf of bread.

Have you come to capture spoil? Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil? Yes, Russia (as they see it) has economic reason to invade Israel.

Ezekiel 38:13 says Sheba and Dedan (modern day Saudi Arabia) along with Tarshish (loosely Europe) will object and protest against Russia and its surrogates. Currently (February 2016), the protest is against Russian activity in Syria. Ultimately, the protest will be against the invasion of Israel.
