Keith's Comments
The Next Big Event?
The past few months everyone in America has been watching the debates, comments and criticisms of both party's nominees for the upcoming US Presidential election. As exciting as this is, and as much as it warrants our attention as voters, we must not let that override our focus on God's land and chosen people.

This past June, according to an article on the United Kingdom’s website the Telegraph, former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has predicted that Israel could attack Iran after the November presidential election but before George W Bush's successor is sworn in.

All due respect to Mr. Bolton, but I simply don't see this happening. It doesn't fit any of the End Time scenarios described in the Bible.

If Israel attacks Iran, Iran retaliates with indescribable force against Israel and would, as Iran’s President Ahmadenijad has said, wipe them off the map. However, we know that type of an offensive by Iran against Israel doesn't take place until the Gog/Magog conflict of Ezekiel 38-39, which this scenario doesn't fit, for Russian forces aren't directly involved in the current situation, but they’re shown to participate during the Ezekiel Scriptures. If the United States attacks Iran, same scenario. Iran retaliates against Israel as their proxy target.

Which leaves me with one thought: This attack against Iran will never take place. What will happen first, I believe, is Syria will attack Israel by air with biological/chemical weapons (already supplied by Iran), forcing Israel's retaliation against Damascus, thereby fulfilling Isaiah 17:1. This infuriates the Arab world to such an extent that the Gog/Magog attack comes shortly after, by way of land, fulfilling Ezekiel 38-39 by laying waste to their forces upon the mountains of Israel (Ezekiel 38:8, 39:2,4, & 17).

What we must now consider is how close these events are to fruition: Israel feels a time constraint due America's President taking office in only a few months, and they're already training for an airborne incursion into Iran. If they're planning on taking action that soon, I believe the destruction of Damascus is very near.

Also, I believe there is a correlation between what's about to happen with Damascus and Psalm 83. I think Psalm 83:6-7 is speaking of Israel's 'near enemies' of today: specifically the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Hezbollah, and the entire Psalm of their destruction. By the way, those organizations are all headquartered in Damascus. So when Damascus is destroyed, so will the aforementioned organizations.

As I said before, when this takes place it will infuriate Israel's 'far enemies', the coalition of Ezekiel 38-39, who will attack during the later conflict of Gog/Magog.

All we can actually do is surmise when these events will occur. We don’t have direct knowledge of God’s timetable. However it plays out, what a time to be alive and serving the Lord! If you don't know Him as Lord and Savior, please visit our page The Truth.
