Damascus, Capital of Syria
The situation in Syria may now be at a new level of violence:
19 June 2012‘Iran, Russia, China, Syria plan ‘largest’ war game’Jerusalem Post – June 19, 2012Syrian, Iranian media reports say air, ground and naval forces to conduct “Middle East’s largest ever military exercise.”
Iranian media outlets reported on Tuesday that Iran, Russia, China and Syria are to conduct joint military exercises in Syria next month…
Last week, the US accused Russia of sending attack helicopters to Syria to support Assad’s regime, which Russia denied. http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=274425
Although Russia’s Putin wants to teach the West several lessons, as does China, the reality is that Russia and China will back away from Syria and Iran if they feel it is in their best interest.
Iran and Syria will change, now or later, as their current alliance will not remain. The USA and Israel seem to be working on something that will at least help change Iran as today’s Washington Post reports:
The above may embolden certain Muslims, Russians, and Chinese to do something similar to the West in the future (and popular rumor suggests that they all are working towards cyber-attacks, etc.)
The King of the South will rise up in the Arab world (Daniel 11:40), Syria (directly or indirectly) is likely to play a role in that occurrence, and Iran will not be the leader. Thus the situation in Syria and Iran must change.
While Russia and China are prophesied in having important end time roles, it may be partially because of what will happen to the coming King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43), that Russia and China will eventually invade Europe (cf. Daniel 11:44).
As Jesus said in Mark 13:37, we all should watch.
