The US Missile Strike on Syria. The Bible Prophecy Angle?

US Missile Strike on Syria and it's Prophecy implications

A look at the recent headline concerning the US missile Strike on Syria and destroying an Syrian military airbase in response to  the recent Chemical Weapons attack on it's own people killing at the time of writing around 100 people.

This article will take a closer look at this recent headline that emerged literally hours ago which is still developing, with further details emerging as we speak and will also look at this news headline from a Bible Prophecy perspective to see whether Iran is mentioned in Bible Prophecy and the role it has to play in the End Times if any.

Firstly the headline itself here's what is known so far.

The US has for the first time since the civil war began, targeting an airbase from where the US said this week’s chemical weapons attack on civilians was launched by Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Here’s what we know so far according to The Guardian UK
1. The airstrikes targeted al-Shayrat airbase near Homs. The US has said this is the location from where Syrian forces launched a sarin nerve gas attack on the rebel-held town of on Tuesday morning.
2. The Pentagon said 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from the warships USS Ross and Porter in the eastern Mediterranean in the early hours of Friday morning, Syria time.
3. The Syrian military said six people were killed and several wounded in the strike.
4. Officials said senior officers had evacuated the base before the airstrikes happened.
5. Russia, a Syrian ally that has been helping the Assad regime target rebel-held districts, condemned the US action.
6. Russia said Donald Trump’s move would have consequences for the relationship between the two countries.
7. The Pentagon confirmed that Russia had been told in advance of the strike through military channels?
8. The move was supported by key US allies, including the UK, Australia, Israel and Saudia Arabia.
9. Iran said it “strongly condemned” the strikes, as it condemned “all unilateral military action”. It said the action was taken under the “pretext” of the chemical strike.

Implications of this airstrike.
1. As mentioned above this  further drives a wedge between the US and Russia potentially souring relations even further which were not strained at best under the previous US Administration
2. Oil Prices have risen at about 2% but news sources state that oil supplies in the Middle East are robust so no massive rises in oil prices are anticipated at present
3. The World War 3 card has been pulled out again. It raises the prospect of such a scenario to a heightened level and could inflame tensions with neighbouring countries within the Middle East.
4. The result looks to be a hardening solidarity of Iran with Syria as a result of this airstrike
5. Syria has a very close proximity to Israel

Views on this US Missile Strike on Iran

1. The process that the US President employed to launch such an attack leap frogging the democratic decision process was in violation of the US constitution and raises alarm bells that the same tactics could be used for initiating a nuclear attack on any nation. Under current law the US President can launch a military response to a terrorist threat within the US but outside of the US is questionable.

Rand Paul a Kentucky Republican said this:
"The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different,"

2. The chemical attack in Syria was a terrible thing, but fighting fire with fire is not really the answer especially in these politically sensitive and unstable times and the tinderbox situation that exists in the Middle East which has been so for some time.

3. True Christian believers in such a position would have taken a different approach to the actions that were taken by the current US President who claims he is a Christian. Maybe going down some sort of constructive talks and if that failed an economic sanctions route rather than potentially initiating a World War 3 situation which in all honesty the US cannot afford to enter into with a near $20 Trillion debt pile showing no signs of waning

4.  As a result of this attack Iran has shown solidarity with Syria on this matter, other nations in the Middle East may follow the same route and further inflame an already volatile situation.

Is this news headline prophetic in nature and is Syria and Iran mentioned in Bible Prophecy?

1. Syria
With this recent headline we draw ever closer to the Prophecy mentioned by Isaiah in the Old Testament being fulfilled. Damascus which is the capital of Syria which  since it's very beginning has always been inhabited, would become a "ruinous heap" according to the words of the Major Prophet Isaiah. At present there has been massive destruction in Damascus and it is close to that statement, but that prophecy has yet to be fulfilled in totality as it is still inhabited. The current war in Syria and certainly these recent events could take us one step closer to the words of Isaiah and the "burden of Damascus" being fulfilled.

Isaiah 17:1

The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

2. Iran
With the recent US missile attack headlines showing backing from US allies Saudi Arabia, UK, Israel and Australia but receiving condemnation from Russia and especially Iran who is now showing increasing solidarity with Syria, where does Iran stand in Bible Prophecy?

Iran formerly known as Persia is mentioned in End Times Prophecy Iran’s involvement in the end times will be as one of the nations involved in the battle of , which is mentioned by the Prophet Ezekiel in the Old Testament in which specifically mentions Persia as an ally of Russia. Other nations that would form and be involved in this coalition will be Sudan, Turkey, Libya, and others. This massive coalition army is predicted,  will come against Israel, which at the time will be a peaceful nation and the prophecy states they will fail because they will be defeated by The Lord mentioned in Ezekiel 38:2

Ezekiel 38:2-11
2. Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3. And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6. Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

8. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

10. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

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 safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,


Today's headline was a monumental one not only for the media but also for Bible Prophecy as well, and is just further confirmation that we are in The Last Days mentioned in the Bible. As I always say, keep your eyes on the Middle East especially Isreal and Jerusalem and the bordering countries. Keep an eye on any developments and breaking headlines, but without a doubt we are in those Biblical times mentioned all those thousands of years ago by those Great Prophets Ezekiel and Isaiah.

When Damascus does finally fall and become a totally uninhabited pile of rubble, you will know the Biblical Prophecy events that follow will not be far behind. We are without a shadow of a doubt, that generation that will witness these events.
