Bible Prophecy Commentary:
What's next amid these strong talks and rhetoric of strikes, wars, retaliation, etc? The Middle East is a woodpile ready to ignite against Israel. Since these past two airstrikes on Syria, Russia and China are taking sides with Syria. Iran is Syria's strong supporter along with Hezbollah – Lebanon. Egypt is also speaking out and condemning the attacks. We see the surrounding nations, including Jordan, speaking their mind about Israel's wrongful aggression against [poor] Syria. As I see it these could be the embers that ignite the war/conflict described in Psalm 83. Which in turn could launch the major war of Eze 38 and 39, involving Russia, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan.
I find it appalling that the Arab/Muslim nations surrounding Israel can stand with Syria even though Syria has killed 70,000+ of its own citizens in their relentless civil war. Yet the powerful nations of the world just sit back and do nothing except voice passive rhetoric. What is the value then of human life in their eyes … little I would presume. Isa 5:20
"In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place–Jerusalem." -Zech 12:6 (NKJV)
Keep alert, keep watch, keep your eyes on Israel and keep in prayer.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" – Luke 21:28
