What do the Syrian Civil War, Russia’s military presence in the Middle East, and Bible prophecy have in common?
To understand the current conflict in Syria – and its wider global implications – we need to rewind to a foggy morning, and a high-speed car crash.
- The Bible predicts the rise of a huge, militarily powerful nation “from the uttermost parts of the north” – a power which in Ezekiel’s time (c.600 BC) was labelled “Rosh”. It speaks of a time when this nation will move out of its northern lands and come down to invade Egypt and the land of Israel, looking for a spoil. This again is a topic in its own right, but for the sake of brevity: I – and most other Christadelphians – believe a Russian-European alliance fits this description; certainly in the last decade Russia has been growing in military strength and casting hungry eyes down towards Israel and even as far as Egypt (more on this in a moment).
- Ezekiel 38 goes on to say that “in the latter years” – just before the physical, actual return of Jesus Christ to the earth – this massive power will move south towards Israel and Egypt, “like a storm” with “a mighty army”. BUT: they will meet an obstacle. A group that the Bible labels as “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, and the young lions thereof” appear to stand up to this mighty army. They aren’t successful – only Jesus Christ can be – but they attempt to stem the tide. But who are these mysterious parties, prophesied thousands and thousands of years ago? The territories of Sheba and Dedan we can look up – they equate to the geographical land of modern-day Saudi Arabia. But who is Tarshish? And what does this have to do with ‘Brexit’?
“The days are quickly flying, and Christ will come again!”

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
