March of Prophecy: US Airstrikes helping Islamic State
The occupant of the Oval Office’s airstrikes in Syria and Iraq on the political surface are aimed at destroying the Islamic State, but in reality may be accelerating its development across the region. From Psalm 83 to Isaiah to Ezekiel to Daniel to Joel to Revelation and many other prophetic writings, the traditional enemies of Israel gather to wage war and take a spoil against Jerusalem. Nearly every Middle East foreign policy effort of the US “president” has strengthened and advanced the agenda of a worldwide Islamic caliphate. Islam is a true antichrist thearchy, as described in 2 John 7, “…who confess not that Jesus Christ (Messiah) is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
In a September 24 editorial, the New York Times criticized the “president’s” airstrikes as a “bad decision,” warning of “unforeseen consequences in a violent and volatile region.” The UK Independent is far more blunt in an October 12 article: “The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked…In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.” The article says Islamic State fighters are inspired: “Part of the strength of the fundamentalist movement is a sense that there is something inevitable and divinely inspired about its victories, whether it is against superior numbers in Mosul or US airpower at Kobani.”
The article points out the complex support of Turkey for the Islamic State, while claiming to be an ally of the US: “Turkey is demanding a high price from the US for its co-operation in attacking Isis, such as a Turkish-controlled buffer zone inside Syria where Syrian refugees are to live and anti-Assad rebels are to be trained. Mr Erdogan would like a no-fly zone which will also be directed against the government in Damascus since Isis has no air force. If implemented the plan would mean Turkey, backed by the US, would enter the Syrian civil war on the side of the rebels, though the anti-Assad forces are dominated by Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra, the al-Qaeda affiliate.”
While the secular media appears to have no clue about, or belief in, end time prophecy, it is describing the conditions precedent to a rising union of the traditional enemies of Israel as prophesied throughout the Bible. Turkey is key, as Gog of Magog, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal will lead Persia (modern Iran), Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah against the mountains of Israel in a colossal end time battle. Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer and Togarmah are located in modern Turkey. Currently, Turkey is supporting the Islamic Caliphate while telling America she is an ally. The US “president,” while appearing to Americans as fighting the Caliphate, is actually strengthening it. America is currently on the wrong side of prophecy, and even the New York Times believes there will be consequences.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
