With the Syria pullout, are we seeing biblical prophecy unfold before our very eyes?
Recently President Trump announced that he is returning all of our troops from Syria home. I’m not sure how I feel about this move. I do think that in this day of evil, war is always necessary and that we need to be always fighting against evil on all sides in order to preserve peace.
However, according Washington, Jefferson and Eisenhower, we need to stay away from entangling alliances.
It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” Washington’s farewell address
Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none. Thomas Jefferson, https://video.foxnews.com/v/5982750061001/
We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. Eisenhower, https://video.foxnews.com/v/5982750061001/
These words from our wise founders seem to be quite contrary to what General Mattis said in his resignation letter about the need for alliances.
…One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies…
Well, whatever happens, I continue to pray for the president that he will be led of the Lord for the good of good people and for the Lord’s will. Also, as is the title of this blog, the pullout may be in the Lord’ providence to bring about his ultimate will, according to biblical prophecy.
How Syria Pullout May Be Prophetical
In the bible, in the prophetical writings, the United States is not mentioned. But much is said about the Middle East countries. Whether it is good policy or not, with the United States out of the way, this will catapult the world ever closer to the next major war, called the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39). When you see these countries come against Israel, hang on to your hats and look toward heaven!
