What do we know abut Syria?
In recent weeks that seems to be all we hear about on the news. Syria, should we bomb or should we not? Everyone seems to have an opinion. But what do we really know about Syria?
Lets start by looking at the facts of modern day Syria.
Syria has been embattled by a devastating civil war for close to three years now. By some estimates over 100,000 people have lost their lives in this conflict. Over 2million have fled the country in fear for their lives. On August 21, 2013 someone in Syria carried out a chemical weapons attack. Just who carried out that attack has been, and remains the source of heated debate.
So why the huge push from Barack Hussein Obama, the Noble Peace Prize winner, to run off to war against Syria and the current Syrian government in particular?
The Political Side:
Barack Hussein Obama in my opinion has proved time and again to be several things: A liar, an egomaniac, a narcissist, and extremely calculating.
On August 21, 2012 Obama gave a speech before the world claiming that the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a 'red line'. August 21, 2013, one year later to the very day, chemical weapons are used in Syria. The US immediately blames the Syrian government for the use of these weapons. Obama immediately starts planning a war! Then on 8/31/2013 our dear leader suddenly, for one of the only times in his entire presidency, decides to ask Congress what they think!!

Since then the American People, The Senate and Congress, and much of the world has spoken up and said "NO WAR!”
Remember the personality traits Obama which I earlier laid out? Obama will not simply stand up and say "I was wrong", "I give up", "you win, I lose", make no mistake, WE WILL WIND UP IN SYRIA!
How, you might ask, will Obama get us in Syria?
There are TWO scenarios to consider:
We are "attacked” in the U.S. by Syria.
Sounds impossible right? Syria cant fly a jet over us and drop a bomb or get ships of our coasts to launch missiles. But what if it is a "Syrian terror cell" that is "operating inside the U.S." that somehow sets off a "dirty bomb" inside the U.S.?
If we look closely, the stage could already be set for this.
Follow this timeline:
Tuesday 9/2/13 runs a headline article stating that they have received information from a "High Level Military Source" that nuclear weapons have left Dyess Air Force Base headed for the East Coast and particularly South Carolina".
Later that SAME DAY, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina gives a speech stating that if we don’t invade Syria the South Carolina will be hit with "nuclear or hydrogen" bombs!
This story starts to gain attention around the net and through other alternative media sources.
Friday, PPSIMMONS News and Ministry founder Carl Gallups receives a call on his FREEDOM FRIDAY with CARL GALLUPS radio program from a lady living outside Mobile AL stating that on Thursday 9/5/13 she saw an Emergency Alert System message on her television for a "Civil Warning for the state of Alabama until further notice". This same caller did some checking tnto this and was told by the television station that this was "only a test".
Saturday, 9/7/13, PPSIMMONS learned from a confidential source that fire departments around a major southeastern city will soon be set up as "Emergency Inoculation and Vaccination Centers". This same source confirmed to us that his department would be undergoing mandatory "mass inoculation and vaccination training" as well as possible "door to door training".
This could all be merely a coincidence … or it could be the start of a major event inside the US.
There will be another, and a massive, chemical attack inside Syria
Many have speculated, and I personally tend to believe, that there will be another "chemical attack" inside Syria. This would most likely be much easier to pull off and would largely have the same effect.
Just imagine, God forbid, 100,000 or more dead from a major chemical attack on Damascus.
Either way Obama gets to stand in front of the world and say "I Told You So!" Then it’s off to war with Syria but this way he gets to go in full force and with "boots on the ground"!
Remember Obama’s personality characteristics I described earlier?
The Spiritual Side:
Please understand that at some point Syria will be attacked and Damascus will cease to exist. This I can say with all certainty. The wheels on this were set in motion thousands of years ago and were prophesied by Isaiah over 2000 years ago.
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. The fortress also 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 the Lord of hosts. (Isaiah 17:1-3 KJV)
The only question that remains is will we see this happen as soon as it looks and will the US be the fulfillment of this prophecy?
Look at the following quote from Obama in a speech given 8/31/2013 concerning Syria.
"This attack is an assault on human dignity. It also presents a serious danger to our national security. It risks making a mockery of the global prohibition on the use of chemical weapons. It endangers our friends and our partners along Syria’s borders, including Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq. It could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons, or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm."
Full speech here:
Look at the nations he mentions by name, all nations that play specifically into Biblical prophecy and specifically "end time prophecy". We all know that Russia, Iran and China have had plenty to say about war with Syria as well. Three more nations that show up in Biblical "end time prophecy."
So you see the nations are lined up. All the players seem to be in place.
PPSIMMONS has documented in great detail our belief that the "7 Trumpets of Revelation" started blowing with WW1 and trumpet 5 was fulfilled in great detail through the 1991 Gulf War and then our continued involvement in Iraq.
Will we see the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy of Damascus fulfilled in the coming weeks or months? Will this lead the world directly into Trumpet 6 and a great World War centered in the Middle East with Israel at its center?
It certainly seems that this possibility gets stronger everyday.
And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. (Revelation 9:13-16 KJV)
If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and nothing in this world makes since then ACCEPT HIM TODAY! Let him begin to show you the truths of HIS word and take comfort in the fact that HE IS COMING SOON!
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15 KJV)
