Here we go again!

Fastfoward to 2017 and its deja vu. Same old script.

Following Russia’s air strikes
targeting rebels in Syria in
October 2015, questions began reemerging in evangelical circles
about whether events
surrounding the country’s ongoing civil war, which began in 2011, were tied in any way to biblical prophecy. Rosenberg published a blog post in the wake of the air strikes claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin is “working hand-in- glove with Iran’s government” in formulating operations in Syria. It came the same week as reports that Iran was waging a ground attack,
while Russia was carrying out
assaults from the air. “The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel
wrote 2,500 years ago that in
the ‘last days’ of history, Russia and Iran will form a military alliance to attack Israel from the north,” Rosenberg wrote. “Bible scholars refer to this
eschatological conflict,
described in Ezekiel 38–39, as the ‘War of Gog & Magog.’” He added, “Are these sudden and dramatic moves by Moscow and Tehran…simply coincidental, or [do they] have prophetic implications?

Iam so sick of the way Isaiah 17 is being tossed out, since last year, to justify this war. Hopefully cooler heads in the evangelical camp will prevail.
“Bible Answer Man” Hank Hanegraaff also spoke about supposed biblical prophecies
associated with the end times back in 2013 on his radio show.
A caller asked about claims that the Book of Isaiah details coming destruction for Damascus, a notion to which
Hanegraaff pushed back. “So, what you’re saying is they’re tying in the passages in
Isaiah to what is currently
happening in Syria…and this is just a classic example of
newspaper eschatology and shame on the pastors that are
doing this, because it either is a case of them not knowing the word of God, which seems unlikely to me, or simply wanting to invite sensationalism and sophistry,” he responded. “If you look at what the Bible actually says, it is very clear that the fulfillment comes in the biblical text as well.”
