Isaiah 17:1-Destruction Of Damascus/Not By The Hand Of Man

  While it is certain that many prophecy scholars today have embraced the idea of Damascus becoming a ruinous heap as a result of military action, the truth however, reveals this to be a miscalculated error.  It is in their zeal to see every potential build up of U.S./N.A.T.O. forces in the region or subsequent warnings by Israel, as proof to the coming destruction of the Syrian capital or even Tehran (Iran), yet they have obviously missed significant portions of prophecy pertaining to this alliance being formed before their eyes. 

  The Prophet Ezekiel declares the intentions of the Lord God to gather a mighty coalition consisting of much of North Africa, Central Asia, Iran, and those confederate with them in the form of proxy militias(bands) such as Hezbollah and Hamas.  It is recorded that this confederation will be brought from the extreme north and assemble on the mountains of Israel (northern borders).  If then they are to assemble on the northern borders of Israel, exactly where will the primary force gather? 

  The appointed Watchman of Israel (Ezekiel) provides us valuable clues where this assembly point is located as we consider the following verses: "Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee:  I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.  Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD"-Ezekiel 39:4-5.  Notice the reference to an open field or plain here, this marker indicates a large plain along the northern mountains of Israel wide enough to host several armies as they gather.  What is this vast plain and where is it located? 

  The fertile plain here identified by the Prophet Ezekiel is known as the Plain of Hauran, situated in southern Syria adjacent to the Israeli held Golan Heights and Damascus  This fertile plain is a volcanic plateau identified with previous volcanic activity with basalt stone seen in many areas and the presence of dormant volcanic cones adjacent to the Great Rift Valley.  This is the location where Gog/Magog will assemble while the West and their Sunni allies (Saudi Arabia/GCC) observe and inquire of their intentions.

  Ezekiel declares that the leader of this great confederation (Russia) will be the chief arms supplier/financier and guard protecting the alliance as it forms and prepares for battle.  It is in knowing this portion that we can identify that no Western military intervention will occur against Syria or Iran compromising this prophesied confederacy.  It is certain that the rhetoric has climbed in the region and that Western forces are being marshalled in to the region and withdrawn several times, yet none of this will change the truth concerning what is to come.

  It is therefore paramount that we as students of Bible Prophecy understand that the destruction of Damascus as recorded in Isaiah 17:1 will not be the result of any military action but by the hand of the Lord God.  The great earthquake of Ezekiel 38:19,20 directed against the gathered forces of Gog/Magog will bring Damascus to a ruinous heap and the Land of Israel will be shaken violently reducing the Islamic shrines now on the Temple Mount to rubble and dust.  From this point the fury of the Lord will be poured out upon the gathered host arrayed against Israel and the nations bordering Israel will slay each other as recorded in Ezekiel 38:21.

  Scholars today are captivated by every military movement, taking away from the prophetic picture and missing the point of the Lord God establishing his glory in the presence of all nations as the enemies of Israel will be laid waste in unison in one combined prophetic event.  The prayer for divine intervention of Psalm 83 will be fulfilled in Ezekiel 38:21, while Isaiah 17:1 will be fulfilled in the context of Ezekiel 38:19,20 in the form of a great earthquake.  There will be no mistaking the hand of the Lord God upon all those seeking to destroy the House of Israel and the inhertiance of Jacob (Land).  In the coming days we will see this draw closer to final fulfillment.

Why Israel Will Not Attack Iran!!!

   Israel, a nation that has known every form of terrorism and presently surrounded by a sea of enemies must always be prepared to preempt a direct threat to their national security and very survival.  It is vital for their intelligence and military to be in a constant state of readiness, any delay in action, could result in tremendous casualties.  We have witnessed the Jewish State of Israel increasingly wary of the threat that Iran presents in their suspected drive for a nuclear weapon.  Israel is in the process of deploying several Iron Dome antimissile batteries, they have called up several IDF (Israeli Defense Force) Reserve Battalions anticipating a growing threat on their northern border with Syria as well as the prospect of security threats from Egypt!  Israel has also committed itself to build a security wall on the Lebanese border to prevent the influx of Hezbollah threats to the Galilee region.  Naval security has also been increased with the deployment of 4 German Dolphin Class submarines!  In every instance Israel is preparing for conflict!

  It could be safely said that Israel is indeed secure militarily and can be confident, it is with this confidence in their homeland security, that depicts a portrait a workable strike on Tehran with the possibility of significantly reducing the number of casualties among Israeli citizens by any Iranian retalitory measures.  The portrayal is one of might and security yet the Word of God identifies that Israel is in fact not secure by their own hand and the Lord God is prepared to reveal this without question to his people Israel!  The word of the Lord as declared by the Prophet Ezekiel indicates that the Lord God is preparing to bring a mighty coalition against his people known as Gog/Magog, recorded in the Book of Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.  Though much of the world anticipates an Israeli strike on Iran to be forthcoming, the Lord God will bring Russia, Iran and a vast coalition of many nations against them in a preemptive rapid deployment operation.

  The Prophet Ezekiel identifies the current Western coalition formed consisting of the United States, European N.A.T.O. partners, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the U.A.E. (Sheba, Dedan, merchants of Tarshish and all the young lions thereof) positioned against Iran and Syria, declaring that these will be assembled in the region when the Lord brings the Gog/Magog coalition south against the Land of Israel!  Though most scholars seek to identify that the West will only offer a diplomatic protest as this invasion takes place, it is with careful examination of the scriptures that I have come to the conclusion that this Western coaltion is also gathered by the Lord God that he might also judge them.  As the present Western coalition is positioned in close proximity to the borders of Israel the Gog/Magog coalition will deploy in opposition to a planned and coordinated attack on Syria as well as Iran (see Ezekiel 38:7).  While both forces will be joined in the region judgement will come forth from the hand of the Lord God, "And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains (borders of Israel), saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother"-Ezekiel 38:21.

  It would then appear that the Lord God will judge many nations concerning his people Israel, for the sake of his Holy Name will he judge them.  It is also clear that this judgement effects the Western forces as well as declared by the Prophet Ezekiel, "And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD"-Ezekiel 39:6.  This passage identifies that it is the plan of God to judge all those who seek to destroy Israel whether militarily or through diplomacy or policy.  The United States and the European Union continue to voice their opposition to the Israeli settlers building settlements on Israeli land, even compelling the Israeli leadership to forcibly evict these Jewish citizens from their homes and land to appease their enemies, who seek to claim the inheritance of Jacob for themselves.  Let it be known this day, that soon the Lord GOD will declare to all the nations, it is HE alone that holds the deed to the Land of Israel and he has declared his intention to honor the covenant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and to their seed, that they should dwell in the Land that the Lord has chosen!!!

Rapture Ready/Rapture Forums Gestapo Administrators and Moderators

  I have personally visited both these sites and the accompanied forums for discussion of scriptural matters yet more specifically prophetic events to take place!  While both of these sites claim to welcome discussion regarding these subjects, they readily set parameters to prevent true analysis of key events portrayed in the prophetic scriptures.  They will not allow any thread that identifies the United States as the fulfillment of Modern Babylon, they continue to cling to the fable of Rome or Iraq as being identified in these prophetic passages.  They also do not wish to discuss the possibility of the Doctrine of Imminence being a fable.  If they are uncomfortable with truly discussing scriptures they will begin to pack together like wolves and provoke individuals to respond to their accusations.  These sites readily quote specific scholars whom they recognize as being knowledgable yet fail to understand that their opinions regarding the interpretation of scripture as it is presented is no greater than our own!  I recommend that anyone seeking serious fellowship and study of the Word of God stay away from these particular sites as they are not designed for true discussion but to carry on the views and opinions only of the site administrators and their clones!
