The circle of armies around Jerusalem draws tighter

Today’s headline has an unspecified number of US troops moving into Jordan to support the influx of refugees and reinforce the Jordanian military as the skirmishes increase between Syrian and Jordanian troops along the border.

What is not mentioned is the disposition of Syrian rebels to the Hashemite regime in Jordan. I think as much a hedge against the Syrian military, it is even more an effort to prop up a regime that is also teetering on the brink of collapse to the Islamists. Why else locate US troops in Jordan specifically when there are hundreds of miles of direct border between Iraq and Syria where US troops could establish a presence in the area?

The noose it tightening – and it appears that in a very short time, Jerusalem could be tightly encircled by armies.

  1. “Britain has sent military personnel to Jordan, according to the Times after it confirmed it had sent troops to the Jordan-Syrian border to as part of a taskforce aimed at stopping the Syrian conflict spreading south. A foreign office spokesman told the Times: “We are working with international partners and countries neighbouring Syria to improve border controls to reduce the risk of weapons proliferating to third parties. We have made clear to Assad, directly and through other parties, that any use or proliferation of CBW [chemical and biological weapons] would be completely unacceptable.”

    Is this a case of armies surrounding Jerusalem or Tarshish’s young lions assembling? It was Operation Eager Lion that was cover for the US forces remaining in Jordan. Just a thought….


  2. Thanks so much for keeping us udpated, I have not commented for a while as I have a 93 year old man who lives with us who has been ill and in hospital for over a week. Very vulnerable so I had to stay up there with him. We have him home now on Hospice, although doctor says he is not saying only 6 months left but because of his age and the trauma it causes him being in the hospital best thing for us to do. And because even though I am there telling them not to do certain meds and questioning some of his reactions, you cannot get an answer out of the nurses and boy let me tell you I am certain that this is worse than when I used to work in the hospitals. I cried out to God as my heart told me it was just not his time and he has protected him from so much that could have gone the other way. I know all of you have been praying for my family as well, as I pray for you and yours. Certainly this clock must be winding down as we see all these signs.


  3. “Even as German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, who was on a visit to China, diverted himself to Istanbul in a mission on Saturday aimed at tamping down Turkish-Syrian tensions, Der Spiegel calmly reported that the information about the “non-civilian cargo”, which led to the interception of a Syrian aircraft by the Turkish Air Force the previous Wednesday night, was actually passed on to Ankara by US intelligence.

    Furthermore, Der Spiegel disclosed authoritatively, “Ankara only forced the plane to land after close contact with its Western allies.”

    The question naturally arises: Was it an incident that had been

    choreographed by Washington with a view to change the dynamics of the Syrian situation? Stranger ways have been found to kick-start wars in history. Or did the United States have another motive?”


  4. The article goes on to assert that the US is trying to drive a wedge between Ankara and Moscow, but i t looks to have failed as Moscow is promising to amke sure Turkey has enough natural gas through the Winter if Tehran’s supply faulters.

    I think Russia is going to want to team up even more with Turkey now to protect their interests in Syria and cement their relationship.


  5. “Turkey and Iran hold surprise talksIntriguing … Syria’s main regional foe has held surprise talks with its main ally

    The Turkish daily Zamam reports:

    Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in a surprise move, met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the sidelines the 12th Summit of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) in Azerbaijan on Tuesday.

    The meeting was closed to the press and no statement has yet been made regarding its content. According to reports, the two top officials met to discuss the situation in Syria.

    The meeting lasted 40 minutes, according to Hurriyet.

    On Monday the international envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, urged Iran to help broker a ceasefire on Syria to mark Eid al-Adha, the four-day Muslim holiday later this month.”

  6. Amen Mr Sheep.

    James this quote sends chills down my spine ” The question naturally arises: Was it an incident that had been

    choreographed by Washington with a view to change the dynamics of the Syrian situation? Stranger ways have been found to kick-start wars in history. Or did the United States have another motive?”

    Things are not as they appear.

    I asked a pastor friend last week if he thinks we are about to enter into the “strong delusion”. Enter ? he exclaimed!….we are already in it!

    Don’t know how else to say this , but there is a universal ( I hate using that word ) deception that has blanketed the world as evil is called good and good is called evil, yet most of the persecutors are the ones that have a outward form of godliness,,,like what is this!

    I had to chuckle this morning as Mr Obama habitually ignored the question on the ” Benghazi” attack and pray that the Lord will expose the innocent blood that was shed there!

    Reminded me of a verse in Habakuk 2 again this morning.

    Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and [for] the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.

    So we have : Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finally Iran?

    May God have mercy!

    I suppose speaking the truth is now seen as a ” revolutionary act ” righttt!! 😦


  7. you are ” one of us “, Colleen. i LIKE your words and thoughts here. All stated sooo well! Yes, it IS happening,…unfolding, befor our very eyes! Unholy smokescreens,….HOLY SMOKES! Hang tight to JESUS all!,amen


  8. Wow, I can’t believe I missed this thread.

    I’m just wondering if the Ezekiel 38/39 (Gog-Magog) ; Isaiah 17; and as some have mentioned Psalm 83 (although I don’t see it) – aren’t just a series of wars leading up to, and include Armageddon.

    In other words, it may not be just a single war event that destroys Damascus in a day, or the events in the Gog-Magog war are a separate event – but they are all combined together over a period of time that includes the Return of Christ at Armageddon.

    After all wars are decreed until the end of this age, and the events that are happening now with the wars could very well describe what is going on today. The End will come in like a flood.


  9. like you all i do not know the exact sequence and timing of all the happenings but do know that all the “players” are lining up as we speak as is brought up in this post and comments. taking their places to fulfill the prophecies. people-nations-who previously hated each other for 1000’s of years are becoming “friends” together in an evil plan. and aiming at israel–jerusalem is-without doubt-the burdensome stone. russia and iran have terrible interests in syria and beyond. found this at bro brians site. – – the “hook” may be set soon…the world’s economy tanking will only help spur this on in my understanding. incredible times to be living in amen? the Lord is going to take all the guesswork out of what we are seeing……that they (the nations) may know that I am the Lord. ezekiel 38:23


  10. Ahaha seems I’m in good company here and Andre thank’s for the link sis. I missed that from Bro Brian but as a dear friend and sis in Christ said in the wee hrs of this morning… something stinks and we smell a rat….another ” Kosovo” ? yes/ no / maybe?

    Jerusalem is the PRIZE for sure Andre and how much more does it all fit into the puzzel with the foreign ” armies”…And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed 😦

    Where is our man hmmmm? oh wait he still has to cause all h*ll to break loose first , so I guess we must be found in our hiding place till then 🙂

    Isa 26:20 — Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

    Guys like seriously is it just me or have you seen a “upturn” of spiritual darkness descending on our world or what lately!

    You guys are daily in my prayers and do covet yours.



  11. yes dear Hisown. darker everyday-quickly descending in my book too. and to go right along with your thinking of that secure place–that secret place of His Presence and Favor as His Beloved. psalm 91!
    Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    Psa 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
    Psa 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
    Psa 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
    Psa 91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
    Psa 91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
    Psa 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
    Psa 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
    Psa 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
    Psa 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
    Psa 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
    Psa 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    Psa 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
    Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
    bless you for your prayers and i couple mine with yours. He is a Magnet to the humble cry of His people.
