For today’s post, I asked Frank Raccioppi of EzekielThirtyThree.org to write a guest post on how the conflict in Syria could play into Bible prophecy for end time events. Frank was also recently on the Prepper Recon Podcast to talk aboutSpiritual Preparedness. Frank is well versed in Biblical prophecy and has written an excellent explanation of what we are seeing. A big thanks to Frank for writing today’s post. Heads up, you will need to get your Bible for today’s study.
What does Bible prophecy tell us about Syria?
As we read this, the stage is being set for the war of Gog and Magog most noted in Ezekiel 38. The major players are being led by GOD into the arena and will eventually all focus their combined force against Israel. Currently all events are revolving around Syria, whom is not mentioned as one of the players of the war of Gog and Magog.
Before looking into what Scripture tells us about Syria/Damascus (or sometimes referred to as Aram, Arameans, or the fortified towers of Ben-Hadad), we must look to Isaiah and understand a few interpretative challenges with his prophecies. (click)
