There is a story running on the DRUDGE report this morning that headlines…
Fear of new Mid East ‘Cold War’ as Syria strengthens military alliance with Russia
Here is the link to it and I would strongly suggest a read through.
It would seem from the article that the players mentioned in the Ezekiel prophecy are taking a bold step toward its fulfillment. As I read this, I was blown away to see the link between Syria and Russia. I have hinted at this union for some time, but to see it become a reality is another dynamic. The article also mentions Nezrallah, the head thug of Hezbollah, in Lebanon, that is backed by the Syrians & the Iranians, who remarked that the Israeli trained troops in Georgia, were poorly trained. It is reported that Hezbollah is 5 times stronger than it was several years ago when it clashed with Israel in the summer of 2006. Is Nezrallah hinting a t a coming war? Is he saber rattling again?
The world’s attention is on the Olympics. I’ve tuned in almost every night and I’m just amazed at what these athletes can do. In the meantime, there are fears of a new Cold War, because of the Russian presence in Georgia, that may spill over into the Middle East. I would argue that the balance of power in the region is shifting. As I posted recently, the US has sent three more war ships into the Persian Gulf, and with the Iranians launching a satellite over the weekend and pursuing, with impunity there goal to achieve nuclear power, the region is a time bomb, and it’s ticking away.
I have been asked on numerous radio shows if there is any way to stop the prophecy written in Ezekiel. The short answer is, no. Yes we have free will, but the prophet was somehow transported into the future and saw events that had already taken place! He saw what man would do 2500 years in the future, and it wasn’t pretty. Certainly no one is twisting Vladamir Putin’s arm, concerning Russian troops, in Georgia, and the newly formed liaison with Syria. Both heads of state are exercising their free will. Are their actions leading up to the fulfillment of the Ezekiel prophecy?
Remember that if you are a being that is not bound by space and time as we are, then you truly can see the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. Chuck Smith has a great analogy for this, I have taken the liberty to label it the “Eye of God.” He states that if you were standing on a street corner and watching a parade, you would see one float at a time. But if you were in a helicopter you would have a totally different perspective. Thus the term, “Eye of God.” As we watch the players of this ancient prophecy line up against the nation of Israel, can it be far off from happening? You decide…
