A wicked and evil game is being played out in the halls of power throughout the world. This diabolical ‘game of princes’ will lead to the death of millions, especially in the Middle East. Our amoral leaders know this, and don’t care. This is realpolitik at its darkest and most vile.
I already mourn for the Arabs and Jews who will die over the next few months. It will be the vilest of blood sacrifices by our Luciferian elites.
The Bible prophesied that this would happen, but that fact lessens my nausea by only a little.
God help us all.

The Murder of Syria
I’ve been pondering the geopolitical implications of John Kerry’s signing of the nuclear treaty with Iran. In fact, I was mystified by why they would sign such a thing in the first place.
Unfortunately, I am mystified no longer.
Long-time readers know that I have been pounding the table about how the Petrodollar is the foundation of Pax Americana. If you wanted oil, you had to please America, or you got nothing. Thus was the American Empire born.
The Gulf Arabs got fat on this deal. But, they worried about America’s hold on them, so they invested heavily on Islamicizing America. The elites were more than happy to see this Islamization, so they let them set up their mosques and Islamic studies departments.
After all, anything that tears and divides America is a good thing – in the eyes of the global elites.
Little did the Arabs know that there was poison in the Kool-aid that they where drinking.
Enter The Ayatollahs
Have you ever wondered why the New World Order elites let an Islamic Revolution take over Iran?
I mean, this guy doesn’t look all that cuddly and nice:
That guy – Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini – was the leader of the Islamic revolution that took over Iran, from the Shah of Iran – Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. And, that Ayatollah does NOT appear to be someone that you would normally want as a neighbor. And, you certainly wouldn’t want such a person near the one place that acts as a foundation of your empire – Middle East Oil. But, he is exactly who the New World Order installed.
Why? Why would they do such an insane thing?
Think Weapons Sales
Well, think of all the weapons that get sold because of that. Think of the aircraft carrier strike groups that need to be built, so they can patrol the Persian Gulf. Think of the expensive fighters and helicopter gunships that the Saudis, Kuwaitis, Omanis and Emeratis will need – because that brooding visage stares at all of them from across the Strait of Hormuz.
Now, Think Deeper
But, that’s not deep enough.
How is the New World Order going about to gain control of the world?
Well, I think that Julius Caesar said it best:
divide et impera
Divide and rule.
(And, NOBODY did it better than the Romans.)
It’s how the Romans took over Israel, in 63 BC. The British used it to conquer India and Africa. It’s how politics all over the world, works today.
Take one big piece.
Break it up into little ones.
Rule the whole thing.
And, if you can bring in one big threat to scare the [insert metaphor here] out of all the little pieces… well …all the better.
So, how are they doing that here?
Back To Weapons Sales
Well, let’s go back to those weapons sales:
In fact, Saudi Arabia is the biggest buyer of weapons in the world:
Wow. Even more than India. But wait. THAT was LAST year.
Wanna guess what those sales figures will be like, next year?
But… like I said …that’s not the main thing.
And Then The Deeper Reason
The main thing is to break up areas of unity and centers of power. Any country that gets too strong, will be knocked down. They did that with Iraq, Libya and Egypt. They’ve been trying it with Syria, with mixed results.
This is where the Iran deal comes in.
This deal with Iran has terrified the Arabs. The vast majority of Arab governments in the Middle East are Sunni and corrupt. Iran’s government is Shia, fanatic and Persian (i.e., NOT Arab). After the destruction of Saddam Hussein, the only Arab military left – with any power – is Egypt.
And Egypt hasn’t won a war in… um …forever.
Furthermore, Iran is almost impossible to invade. Saddam tried, and essentially failed. And, US generals with any sense, balk at the idea. Fighting in mountainous terrain against a determined and motivated defense… well …that’s a recipe for disaster.
Now, We Get To Syria
So, where is Iran weak?
Syria is the only Arab country that is led by a Shia government. And, it is Iran’s only ally in the Middle East. And, it provides something of a raison d’etre for Iran:
A launching point for the capture of Jerusalem
To give you an idea of how important the ‘liberation of Jerusalem’ is to Iran, her largest special forces unit is called ‘Jerusalem Force’, also known as Quds Force. And every year, Iran has a special holiday, called Jerusalem Day – held on the last Friday of Ramadan. Quds Day is the brain-child of Khomeini – that stern-faced dude that took over Iran.
Do they wave Israeli flags like they do on Jerusalem Day in Israel?
In a way, yes…
…because they are burning them.
And, they have this quaint tradition of chanting Death to Israel and Death to America.
Someone once pointed out the difference between a moderate Muslim and a radical one. A moderate only wants to kill all the Jews in just Israel.
Oh, and do you remember the video that I pointed out to you last week?
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/WwiadYT-N9k
Nutjob does not begin to describe the kind of mentality behind such a government. And yes, the above video is an official production of the Islamic Republic of Iran. They just didn’t want you and I to see it.
Syria also provides an important naval base for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet – at Tartus. Without Tartus, Russia would have difficulty projecting power into the Mediterranean Sea. And, like Iran, Syria is the only friend that Russia has in the Middle East – outside of Iran, itself.
What Iran Is Going To Do
Now, let me remind you that Iran has just been given a big check for billions and billions of dollars – courtesy of the US State Department.
So, with all of that in mind…
What is going to happen?
A truly gargantuan pile of arms is going to flow into the conflict in Syria, and the country is going to be torn apart. It will become a wasteland, full of death and violence. Iran will send weapons and jihadis into Syria. The Gulf Arabs will also send their own weapons and jihadis.
And the people-of-uncertain-parentage who inhabit the White House, will cackle with glee. Their blood sacrifice of innocent humanity will number in the millions. And, the violence will spread to Jordan and Israel. It has already spilled over into Iraq.
And the group who will suffer the most?
We have already seen the massacre of Christian communities everywhere in the Middle East. Men, women and children have been butchered in the worst way possible. The rape, torture and murder of our brothers and sisters in Christ is beyond even my capacity to imagine.
Unfortunately, it’s nothing new.
The True Nature Of Islam
I stumbled across this video, just a few days ago:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/t_Qpy0mXg8Y
Unfortunately, Dr. Warner’s original website was taken down, but you can still find him, here:
The interesting thing about Bill, is that he is a scientist. His Ph.D. is in Physics and Math – not some useless political science degree. This guy knows how to think, and he even showed me a thing, or two.
So, watch the video.
No one has ever presented the Dark Ages like this, and he’s absolutely right.
But, let me get back to Syria. In fact, let’s talk about the prophecy that centers directly on Syria – in Isaiah 17.
Isaiah 17 – The Burden Of Damascus
Two commenters – DRG and Hajeer – woke me up to a need to explain my understanding of the timing of the salvation of Israel – and describe in better detail, why I believe that this will happen BEFORE the Antichrist. I went to work, putting together all the evidence that I could think of.
You can find the current result, here:
Why Israel MUST be Saved BEFORE the Great Tribulation
However, when I finished that addition to Ezekiel’s Fire, I realized that I needed to do more work. I needed to read through the prophets of the Old Testament – from Isaiah to Malachi – to make sure that I had covered all the bases, properly.
That’s when I ran across Isaiah 17, again. And, THAT is when I realized why Barack Obama made his evil nuclear weapons deal with Iran. However, this isn’t the first time that I’ve written about Isaiah 17.
I wrote about Isaiah 17, here:
Syrian Civil War – Isaiah 17
You will find some of what follows in the above two articles.
Isaiah 17 – From Three Years Ago
A friend of mine called me up from the Netherlands a few days ago. We talked about what we were up to and mutual friends that were still in Israel. Then we stumbled onto the subject of eschatology, and I said that the next big thing that’s going to happen is Gog and Magog and the salvation of Israel.
“No it’s not,” he responded.
I was taken aback. Here I was, incredibly knowledgeable about Israel and the Bible and eschatology, and this… this… Dutch person DARES to disagree?
“Why?” I growled menacingly.
“Damascus hasn’t been destroyed yet,” he replied – blissfully ignorant of how close he was to being rhetorically torn limb from limb.
I sat and blinked for a moment. I remembered reading something in the Bible about Damascus being destroyed, but I thought that it had already happened – and that the prophecy didn’t apply to the future.
I sputtered a bit in deflated indignation before flitting through the scriptures that referred to Damascus. Sure enough, it needed to be destroyed.
Once THAT was clear, I did a quick search of the history of Damascus and found that it had NEVER been destroyed – at least as far as we could tell.
That is an incredibly serious problem.
Well, if Damascus has never been completely destroyed, then it is going to be completely destroyed in the very near future.
(There’s not a whole lot of future left
in our ‘future’ – if you know what I meant.)
But, there’s worse.
It appears that a lot of Israelis are killed also. A LOT of Israelis. In fact, I can see how this fits with Zechariah 13 when it speaks about the same time frame:
Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith Jehovah, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
If there is anyone out there that can prove that all of this has already happened, and that there is going to be no massacre of Israelis in the future…
Well, my joy would be boundless. [Really. I’m not kidding.]
However, until someone can prove that Isaiah 17 and Zechariah 13:8 have ALREADY been fulfilled, I live in dread of the future.
But, let’s start working through the terrible predictions of Isaiah 17.
1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken; they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
3 And the fortress shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria; they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith Jehovah of hosts.
4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the standing grain, and his arm reapeth the ears; yea, it shall be as when one gleaneth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
6 Yet there shall be left therein gleanings, as the shaking of an olive-tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost branches of a fruitful tree, saith Jehovah, the God of Israel.
THIS is utter destruction, an utter destruction that has never happened, except POSSIBLY during the Assyrian conquest. However, it is my understanding that Damascus was not made a ruinous heap by the Assyrians, and that they left much of it intact as a city. It was certainly a city when Alexander the Great was rampaging through the Middle East. So, as I said before, it doesn’t appear that Damascus has ever been utterly destroyed.
But, if Damascus is to be utterly destroyed, who destroys it? Who destroys Damascus?
Does the Assad regime use chemical weapons against Damascus?
Does Gog and Magog do this?
What does it mean when verse 4 says, “the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean”?
This sounds like Israelis being killed – lots and lots of Israelis being killed. And that is beyond disturbing.
Unless someone can prove to me, beyond the shadow of doubt, that all of this has happened already and that there is no possibility that this will happen in the future – I will live in dread of the near future.
7 In that day shall men look unto their Maker, and their eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
8 And they shall not look to the altars, the work of their hands; neither shall they have respect to that which their fingers have made, either the Asherim, or the sun-images.
9 In that day shall their strong cities be as the forsaken places in the wood and on the mountain top, which were forsaken from before the children of Israel; and it shall be a desolation.
To me, this confirms my understanding that this is in our future, because the Assyrian captivity did not result in Israel looking to God.
Furthermore, do you remember these verses from Ezekiel 38?
Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: It shall come to pass in that day, that things shall come into thy mind, and thou shalt devise an evil device:
Ezekiel 38:11 and thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates;
Ezekiel 38:12 to take the spoil and to take the prey; to turn thy hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and against the people that are gathered out of the nations, that have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the middle of the earth.
Both verse Isaiah 17:9 and Ezekiel 38:10-12 indicate that Israel will be rendered defenseless.
Could it be that Israel will be forced to use nuclear weapons against Syria after suffering horrific civilian casualties?
…and that the terrible devastation in both Israel and Syria will cause the world to demilitarize the whole area?
Does Iran attack Israel with a massive barrage of missiles, leading to horrific civilian casualties?
Does the economic catastrophe that is coming lead to a demilitarization of Israel?
Is Israel attacked by an EMP weapon?
Any one of those would explain why Gog and Magog say that Israel is a country of unwalled villages – in Ezekiel 38:11.
But, there is a very, very important and positive development in Isaiah 17:7:
7 In that day shall men look unto their Maker, and their eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
Almost any amount of horror is worthwhile if it ends in redemption, but you will forgive me if I do not look forward to seeing people that I care deeply about, suffering and dying.
10 For thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength; therefore thou plantest pleasant plants, and settest it with strange slips.
11 In the day of thy planting thou hedgest it in, and in the morning thou makest thy seed to blossom; but the harvest fleeth away in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
12 Ah, the uproar of many peoples, that roar like the roaring of the seas; and the rushing of nations, that rush like the rushing of mighty waters!
13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but he shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like the whirling dust before the storm.
14 At eventide, behold, terror; and before the morning they are not. This is the portion of them that despoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
Both verses 13 and 14 sound like Gog and Magog.
Again, if anyone can prove to me that I have the wrong interpretation of Isaiah 17, I would be truly, truly grateful.
Back To Today
I wrote most of that discussion about Isaiah 17, more than three years ago. What John Kerry and Barack Hussein Obama have done, is to bring the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 much, much closer.
The Gulf Arabs and the Iranians will pour arms into the conflict in Syria, and the blood will run in the streets. Both the United States and Russia will sell them all the weapons that they could possibly want.
It will be murder.
The murder of Syria.
Unfortunately, the anti-semitism of people like Sean Geoffrey Turnbull of SGTReport continue to poison minds to what is really going on in the Middle East. Websites like Veterans Today, Information Clearing House, 21st Century Wire, BlackListed News, AWD News, The Liberty Mill, Intellihub and a host of other websites continue to slander Israel and the Jewish people.
Such sites DO provide good research material, in other areas, but they will never show you the truth of what is going on in the Middle East.
I find this to be extremely perplexing. If it wasn’t so awful, I would be utterly fascinated.
Why do so many hate the Jews so much?
Such irrational hatred defies logic.
Anti-Zionism Is Anti-Semitism
And yes, anti-Zionism IS anti-semitism. Don’t let ANYONE tell you otherwise.
Zionism is the desire for the Jewish people to live in their own land, in peace and security.
Why would ANYONE object to this?
Yet, they do. And, I do not understand.
So, when someone launches an attack on Israel, do the right thing and leave them a comment. Tell them why it is an evil thing to condemn the just:
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.
Uncounted millions of Arabs owe their lives to Israel. The Jews cured malaria, enabling millions of Arabs to live – who would have died. Israel stopped Syria from invading Jordan. They brought science, education and healthcare. They developed sanitation networks and brought electricity. They paved roads and brought modern agriculture. They built factories and railroads – along with new ideas about freedom and the rule of law. They did all of this, and so much more.
And, the Arabs of the Middle East copied what they saw in Israel.
Of course, when you make such points to anti-semites, they mutter about a global Jewish conspiracy. And, that’s where I want to get out my rhetorical baseball bat and start bashing heads. However, I must keep reminding myself that we are all victims of the foolish ideas that our teachers taught us. We all tend to parrot those that we respect, so I should give people a break.
The Center Is Jerusalem
Please remember that the Bible account of the Last Days – the days that we are living in, right now – all center on Jerusalem. As the disasters that come on the world grow bigger and more catastrophic, we will also see Jerusalem grow in importance. The coming of Gog and Magog – and with it, Ezekiel’s Fire – will be because of Jerusalem. And, when the Antichrist comes, he will proclaim himself, in Jerusalem.
If you lose sight of Jerusalem…
…you lose sight of the future.
Lord willing, I will send out an update on this week’s events, tomorrow.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
