As Syria and Israel posture toward each other in a relentless march toward war, Israel suddenly warns Syria that she might face "devastating" war with Israel, as Israel threatens to use her nuclear arsenal. This ominous development is studied in light of our earlier article on God's pronounced judgment against Israel's immediate neighbors, including Syria (NEWS1035, "SCENE SEEMS SET FOR WORLD WAR III IN MIDDLE EAST!! REQUIRED ANTAGONISTS NOW IN PLACE FOR BOTH PROPHESIED WARS!!")

NEWSBRIEF: (Jerusalem Post, International Edition, No. 1882, Week Ending November 30, 1996, Kislev 19, 5757, Rajab 20, 1417, "Syria accuses Israel of warmongering", p. 1-2.) "Syria's official newspapers accused Israel last week of pushing the region to war by taking the first step toward building 900 new housing units on the Golan Heights ... Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approved the project, newspapers say."

Everyone should immediately sit up and take notice whenever perennial enemies begin to use the word, "war", as Syria, Israel, Egypt, the Palestinians, and the Jordanians are now. Actual events have a way of following rhetoric as surely as morning follows night, in too many instances in human history. Jesus understood this when he warned that words flow from the condition of the human heart, and that a man will be judged guilty of murder who simply hated his neighbor!! And, certainly, the Middle East has seen its share of "murder of the heart" between Jew and Arab but especially from the Arab.

In this situation, President Assad of Syria is simply trying to achieve at the bargaining table what his armed forces lost on the battlefield, i.e., control of the Golan Heights. But, this is the Arab strategy overall, in the West Bank and Jerusalem. The only reason Egypt got the Sinai back was because Israel gave it back as part of a "peace treaty" agreement. Remember this and remember it well: the Arabs want Israel DEAD, annihilated, finished, and thrown into the Sea. The Arabs are not interested in "peace" any more than you might be interested in contracting a deadly disease. They view "peace" as part of an broad campaign of achieving their goal of finally killing Israel.

Do not be deceived by their rhetoric.

Now, let us return to this most interesting story. "In an interview with 'The Sunday Times', [Israeli Defense Secretary] Mordechai revealed that Russian scientists were helping Syria develop lethal nerve gases. These include VX, one of the most toxic nerve agents, said Mordechai in the interview ..." [Ibid., p. 2].

Suddenly, the pressure against Israel has just been turned up a full notch, hasn't it? Israel may have the nuclear bomb, but if Syria possessed such deadly biological weapons, and had the capability of delivering them, they could conceivably even the military equation. And Mordechai knows this, which is why he delivered this warning to Syria: "... if someone dares carry out a threat against us, a missile threat, and certainly a threat of chemical weapons, they need to know that we have all the forces and capabilities to reply with a devastating war."

A "devastating" war. Isn't that exactly what the Bible predicts against the Arab neighboring countries in Obadiah, and isn't that exactly what it predicts against Damascus, Syria's capital? We covered this subject thoroughly in NEWS1035, "SCENE SEEMS SET FOR WORLD WAR III IN MIDDLE EAST!!"

Let us quickly review these prophecies.


"For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been. But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it." {Obadiah 16-18}

"And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it." This war, when it breaks out, will be so devastating to the House of Esau that they will be as thought they have never existed. And, their physical destruction will occur by a war that destroys primarily through a great fire, i.e., possibly nuclear weapons.

Now, exactly who comprises this "House of Esau"? The modern day Palestinians, and about two-thirds of Jordan, located right across from the West Bank, comprise the House of Esau. Thus, if our scenario is correct, we should be able to see both the Palestinians and Jordan lining up together in threatening war against Israel, an event which just solidified in mid-November.

Thus, we see that the modern day 'nation' called The Palestinian Authority, lead by Yassir Arafat, is the "House of Esau" mentioned above. But, remember that modern Jordan is comprised of Palestinians, which puts Jordan at the center of this prophecy, as well. This is the reason it was so very significant that Jordan's King Hussein suddenly shifted diplomatic gears a few weeks ago, from siding with Israel to opposing her, and siding with Arafat. That action placed Jordan squarely in line with this prophecy.

God's prophetic Words ring continuously in my ears: "... the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it." {Obadiah 16-18}

There will be total annihilation of the House of Esau, "for the Lord hath spoken it". In other words, God has placed His Holy Name on the line here; if these nations are not devastated then our trust in God's Holy Name is going to suffer. This prophecy does not make me happy, for I do not harbor any ill will toward the Arabs. But, God's Word seems firm on this issue, so I accept it literally.

Then, remember the prophecy against Damascus, Syria's capital?

BIBLICAL PROPHECY OF ANNIHILATING JUDGMENT AGAINST DAMASCUS, CAPITAL OF SYRIA: Isaiah 17:1 "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." When God begins a pronouncement with the word, "Burden", He is signifying calamitous judgment. In this 'burden', God is foretelling that Damascus, the capital of Syria, will be reduced to a "ruinous heap", and shall cease being a city. This kind of devastation has never befallen Damascus. Archeologists call Damascus the 'longest continuously occupied city in the world". In its long, long history, Damascus has never, ever been so thoroughly destroyed that it has ceased being a city. But, certainly, in this coming war with Israel, Damascus could be this thoroughly destroyed if she were attacked with Israeli nuclear weapons.

Thus, when Mordechai threatens to "reply [to a Syrian attack with missiles carrying either chemical or biological weapons] with a devastating war" and is quoted by 'The Sunday Times of London' as "threatening to topple Assad's rule if war broke out", this seems to set the stage for the fulfillment of God's prophecy in Isaiah 17:1.

It seems like a certain line has been crossed here. Israel has just publicly threatened to "devastate" Syria if Syria attacks with chemical and/or biological weapons. Will Syria heed such warnings, and refrain from attacking Israel with these weapons? If we are, indeed, in the Last Days' of Time then the answer is a resounding 'NO'. Remember, we are talking about Spiritual Warfare here, with God's Holy angels battling Satan's demonic host, and they are both working through human leaders to accomplish their goals. Read Daniel, Chapter 10 for the most remarkable account of this supernatural battling.

But, remember, this battling does not imply that the outcome is uncertain, that Satan's demonic host might pull off an upset victory, a knockout punch that is unanticipated. God's Will and His prophecies will prevail 100% of the time, with no exceptions. The situation we are witnessing here is that God's Will and Prophecies have decreed these events to occur, as judgment, and Satan's demons are manipulating key world leaders to conceive plans and carry them out, in order to fulfill God's Prophecies.

But, remember, also, that God might act directly to plant the idea in a key leader's mind to take action to fulfill His prophecies. In Revelation 17:17, we read, "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled." While this prophecy deals specifically with the leaders of the final 10-Nation confederacy of the End of the Age, the principle holds, that God controls the minds of human leaders. In Daniel 2:21, we read that "God removes kings, and sets up kings".

Even though King Assad, and other key Arab leaders may be facing overwhelming odds against them, do not conclude that they will not attack. If the timing is right in God's calculations, they will attack, even if they are reasonably assured of total destruction.

At this point, I wish to point out a spiritual truth here. God is not being unjust in planting this Plan is the minds of these leaders. God is not taking someone who might accept Jesus Christ as Savior and damning them by implanting a Plan in their minds that will damn them. What is happening here is that God is taking men who have ALREADY rejected Him and His Truth in Jesus Christ, and is taking Divine action to ensure that the actions they are about to take will fulfill His prophecy. The Bible is quite clear on this point, that God is Merciful and wishes no one to go to Hell. But, the Bible is also quite clear that God may take action in a person's mind and heart, to further harden them in their rebellious state, so that their actions fulfill His Plan. This is precisely what happened to a most rebellious Pharaoh, as recorded in Exodus, Chapters 6-11. Time after time, God hardened Pharaoh's heart, stimulating him into even greater rebellion against God than he had heretofore demonstrated.

I am convinced the same thing is occurring here. The heart of King Assad is being hardened to believe he can win this war. He is being led down a path of total destruction. With this in mind, I offer you the following article about the supposed weakness in Israel's current leadership. When a leader is contemplating an attack on an enemy, he is guided by two factors: 1) His own military strength, and 2) The strength, or perceived weakness, on the part of his enemy. In this article, you will see that King Assad may be reaching conclusions about Israel's weakness that may cause him to miscalculate badly.

NEWSBRIEF: (Jerusalem Post, International Edition, No. 1882, Week Ending November 30, 1996, Kislev 19, 5757, Rajab 20, 1417, "Shaky Soloist: Has the PM's failure to trust military advisors endangered security?", p. 8.) "The Prime Minister [PM] has been receiving regular briefings on the current tensions in the north, particularly the renewed attacks by Hizbullah in southern Lebanon and the Syrian troop deployment in the Golan Heights. It's a situation so tense that one of his closest cabinet colleagues ... has advised him to 'start preparing the nation for the possibility of war.' "

"But the worst part of the current crisis, say both critics and supporters of Netanyahu, is found in the Prime Minister's office. The say the Prime Minister is isolated from the experts whom he needs to consult, and often dismisses the vital information he is given. Since he became Prime Minister in June, Netanyahu's relations with the army have grown worse, and are now marked by suspicion and doubts about its loyalty and competence. The army is consulted as little as possible..."

"For most governments, such a situation would be troubling. But, government officials and defense analysts say that, given a freshly elected Prime Minister who has never held a cabinet post, a defense minister just out of the army, and inexperienced outsiders heading both the Mossad and the General Security Service, the situation borders on dangerous."

"With no security council, no advisors and distrust of the army, critics and supporters say, Netanyahu is walking around with blinders. 'The Prime Minister and the defense minister have no military thinking', says Arie Stav, editor of the right-wing publication 'Nativ'. This is unprecedented." [Page 8]

If I were King Assad, reading this information would probably cause me to think that my perennial enemy, Israel, might be ready for the taking. History is full of instances where such calculations have played greatly in the decision to go to war. If Assad, Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan, and President Mubarak of Egypt, believe that Israel is being led by an inexperienced incompetent Prime Minister, they might be very encouraged to believe that NOW is the most opportune time to attack. Think of the information given above! The vaunted intelligence service Mossad, is being led by an inexperienced incompetent? Ditto for the General Security Service? Netanyahu is estranged from his vaunted military leadership? King Assad and the other Arab leaders in this region must be literally licking their chops, anticipating a final, climactic battle in which Israel is finally annihilated.

When you further understand that the United States, in cooperation with Israel, is going to be implementing the new, very effective, Arrow Antimissile defense system within 6 months, you have got to believe that this devastating, annihilating war between Israel and her immediate Arab neighbors might be ready to explode.

And, out of this planned war, New World Order leaders plan to stage the appearance of Antichrist. Stay tuned to the Middle East, because events there hold the key to understanding the events of the End of the Age. As one Anonymous Author stated it,

"This hour is not the end of anything,

But just the pause

Before the massive wheels of circumstance

Grip firmly once again,

Iron to iron

Pulling to Jerusalem."

What did God foretell, almost 2,500 years ago? "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." (Zechariah 12:3)

Fasten your spiritual seat belts, for the world is about to be taken for a ride that is also unprecedented!! Antichrist may very well be waiting in the wings, ready to be revealed, for his appointed time may be at hand.
