Russia Starts Bombing Syria While Asking USA to Stay Away

Poor Obama!  His Middle East withdrawal efforts are all going haywire!  He thought we could pull out of Iraq and "bring the troops home"....which sounds really good on paper but in reality it seems ISIS has filled the vacuum and put the country into mayhem.

And now the mess in Syria continues to thicken...and Putin seems to be playing him like he KNOWS Obama isn't going to do a thing about it.

Russia's move into Syria is SERIOUSLY prophetic.  Most prophecy watchers agree that land that Ezekiel called Magog is now called Russia....and they are now on the very door of Israel.  How long can it be before they come knocking?

In today's news we find that a Russian General asked the USA to stand down with it's Air Force missions in Syria.  How long might it be before an incident happens between the Russian and US Air Force?

Russian warplanes began bombarding Syrian opposition targets in the war-torn nation's north Wednesday, following a terse meeting at which a Russian general asked Pentagon officials to clear out of Syrian air space and was rebuffed, Fox News has learned.

A U.S. official said Russian airstrikes targeted fighters in the vicinity of Homs, located roughly 60 miles east of a Russian naval facility in Tartus, and were carried out by a "couple" of Russian bombers. The strikes hit targets in Homs and Hama, but there is no presence of ISIS in those areas, a senior U.S. defense official said. These planes are hitting areas where Free Syrian Army and other anti-Assad groups are located, the official said.

Activists and a rebel commander on the ground said the Russian airstrikes have mostly hit moderate rebel positions and civilians. In a video released by the U.S.-backed rebel group Tajamu Alezzah, jets are seen hitting a building claimed to be a location of the group in the town of Latamna in the central Hama province.

The group commander Jameel al-Saleh told a local Syrian news website that the group's location was hit by Russian jets but didn't specify the damage.

A group of local activists in the town of Talbiseh in Homs province recorded at least 16 civilians killed, including two children.

According to a U.S. senior official, Presidents Obama and Putin agreed on a process to "deconflict" military operations. The Russians on Wednesday "bypassed that process," the official said.

"That's not how responsible nations do business," the official said.

The development came after Pentagon officials, in a development first reported by Fox News, brushed aside an official request, or "demarche," from Russia to clear air space over northern Syria, where Moscow said it intended to conduct airstrikes against ISIS on behalf of Assad, according to sources who spoke to Fox News. The request was made in a heated discussion between a Russian three-star general and U.S. officials at the American Embassy in Baghdad, sources said. 

"If you have forces in the area we request they leave," said the general, who used the word "please" in the contentious encounter.

A senior Pentagon official said the U.S., which also has been conducting airstrikes against ISIS, but does not support Assad, said the request was not honored.

"We still conducted our normal strike operations in Syria today," the official said. "We did not and have not changed our operations."


So are the Syrians running away to Europe because of ISIS or because of Assad dropping barrel bombs on them?

It's being reported that Russia (who actually support Assad) is going to start bombing (and maybe already have) the Freedom fighters in Syria who the USA is supporting who are actively fighting against Assad's regime.

It's like playing chess in 4 dimensions....and every move you make has cascading consequences.

Soon the world will ask for a man, ANY MAN, who can come up with answers for the world....of course WE understand that the conditions on earth continue to be primed for the Antichrist.  The Bible says he will come to town as a man of peace and the world will accept him as such....but 3 1/2 years after signing a peace agreement with Israel....all hell will break loose.

Our blessed hope, as followers of Christ, is that we will be taken BEFORE he is actually revealed.

2 Thessalonians 2:
5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

We believe that the "the one who now holds it back" is the Holy Spirit that indwells in all followers of Christ....and when WE are taken out of the way...the Antichrist will be revealed.
