Since I am more geared to the supernatural, fallen angel and “sciencey” things of the End Times I am going to post a few writings and posts by others who have a better handle of the things going on in the Middle East and the wars leading up to the beginning of the Tribulation. This war will help to usher in the New World Order that the Antichrist will rule over during the 7yr Tribulation see: Coming chaos by those who would have the New World Order…Time to make your choice . While Americans are focused on the Bread and Circuses and being inundated with selecting the next person who is supposedly going to “save” The United States. Things between Russia,Turkey, Syria, Saudi Arabia et al. have been heating up daily. Please keep an open eye on this and keep watch. Not sure how long it will last before it breaks out into full on World War III but the balloon is on the verge of busting! See also my posts for a basic premise of why these battles are beginning here: These are the days called The End Times and here: The Coming End Of Days Wars…(Gog Magog etc.). This has been building awhile now here is a post with some headlines from September Just A Few Headlines On The Heels of the 4th Blood Moon and they have only been getting worse, not abating. The most important thing you can do in all this besides praying is to make sure you have accepted Jesus as your savior because these wars are not going to pass on over to “back to business as usual” as others in the past. This time it will start the time clock to Jesus’ return to this Earth for the 2nd time and this time it will be to reign and rule over it! Make sure you are saved and stop putting it off if you have been. <<~~ That is what I would do but, that’s just me, or is it?

Are Saudi Arabia and Turkey planning to invade Syria?
This is the single most important question of today. It is much more important than the machinations of the upcoming presidential elections in America, more important than the turmoil embracing the European Union as a result of mass migration, more important even than the impending worldwide economic collapse.
Right now, whether Saudi Arabia and Turkey are planning a joint invasion of Syria is the single most important question of our time.
The reason for this is that if Saudi Arabia and Turkey do decide to invade Syria, Vladimir Putin has let it be known that he would use tactical nuclear weapons against Turkey to stop them. Vladimir Putin does not make this kind of threat idly.
A steadily building antagonism between Russian and Turkey in Syria has existed for a number of months. It is not an exaggeration to say that a proxy war between Turkey and Russia is already well underway.
Almost two weeks ago the Syrian military air base of Minagh, some six kilometers from the Turkish border was seized by Kurdish forces heavily backed by Russian air power. There they attempted to dig in, until Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan launched a two hour artillery bombardment of the base from within Turkey. This Turkish bombardment was an indirect attack on Russian forces and is an example of the deadly tit-for-tat being played out between these two powers.
Vladimir Putin is waiting for the right opportunity to settle accounts with Turkey for the shooting down of a Russian fighter plane on November 24th. The question is whether Putin will feel the need to react and strike back now or wait until later. In this context the Turkish artillery bombardment was a highly calculated risk from the Turkish president.
Russian-Turkish relations are extremely volatile, they rest on a knife edge.
Then comes news that has rocked the Middle East to its core. Turkey and Saudi Arabia seem to be massing huge numbers of troops on their respective borders to Syria. Saudi Arabia and Turkey have both dismissed any talk of an invasion with the explanation of it being merely an internal military exercise. If this is so, it would be the largest military exercise in the history of the Middle East.
At the same time the Saudi’s are warning that Bashir al-Assad will “be removed by force,” if necessary. Turkey is also suddenly claiming that it may be necessary for them to establish a “safe zone” in northern Syria, strictly for “humanitarian reasons.” All the while their troops are building up on their respective borders in huge numbers.
Saudi Arabia and Turkey have both invested significant amounts of money backing Sunni groups in the Syrian civil war. These same groups now stand on the edge of total defeat. Despite this fact, Saudi Arabia remains just as resolute that Assad will be removed from power.
The Saudi Foreign Minister, Jubeir, even went so far as to say that if necessary Saudi forces will cooperate in a ground invasion to “hold ground…that one cannot…from the air.”
If this comes to pass, and Saudi Arabia do invade Syria alongside Turkey, with a view to proactively removing Assad from power in Damascus, then Saudi Arabia and Turkey will be fighting directly against elements of the Syrian army who would still defend Assad. These elements of the Syrian army would be backed and bolstered by Hezbollah, who are backed by Iran, who are in turn backed by Russia.
Effectively the Syrian civil war could morph from an internal conflict between transnational actors into an international hot war between nation states. Iran and Russia would be on one side and Turkey and Saudi Arabia on the other.
The huge danger at this point is that any outright clash between Turkey and Russia would allow Turkey to invoke the NATO charter, demanding allied protection against Russian “aggression,” thereby sucking America, Britain, France and all NATO members directly into a confrontation with Russia.
This, by definition, would be another world war. At the very least it would be the most dangerous point of international diplomacy since the Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1960s.
Tensions between Russia and the West are already heightened. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last week claimed that Russia and the West are in the grips of “…a new cold war.” Outspoken Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, has gone even further claiming that a third world war is actually already underway, “…I call this struggle a third world war by other means.”
Syria stands on the brink. Nation states are greedily snatching up land for themselves and the competing interests that are driving them are increasingly drawing nations into open, outright conflict. As this is read today, the air forces of twelve separate nations are in combat over the skies of this one single country.
The world is sleep walking into a new world war. While people are watching the outcomes of presidential debates, primaries and caucuses, chaos in Europe and just trying to cope with the day to day issues of everyday life, anarchy is breaking loose in Syria, anarchy that may engulf the entire region, or beyond.
The Syrian landscape is moving and shifting rapidly. Syria may provide the spark for a lager conflagration that is yet to come, one that has the potential to drag all nations down into the abyss.
With so many end times Bible prophecies seemingly on the brink of fulfillment, the events that are occurring now on a daily basis can only lead us to conclude that the end of this age approaches rapidly.
Time is short. Keep looking up.

What does the future of the Middle East Hold? Are we looking at a soon rapture of the church? Is the fight against ISIS and the Syrian Civil War a stepping stone to a peace with many?
A fellow watchman friend of mine shared this news:
Things are defiantly, not calming down My Brothers and Sisters..!!! ~ Mike McVey
Two days before Christmas, as American policymakers were settling into the holidays, Russia quietly signed a sweeping air defense agreement with Armenia, accelerating a growing Russian military buildup that has unfolded largely under the radar. It was the most tangible sign yet that Putin is creating a new satellite state on NATO’s border and threatening an indispensable U.S. ally.
The buildup in Armenia has been glossed over in Washington, despite being a key piece of Vladimir Putin’s plan to dominate the region — along with its proxy Syria and growing military ties with Iran. Most importantly, Armenia shares an approximately 165 mile border with Turkey, a NATO member and the alliance’s southern flank.
Over the last six months — as Russia’s war in Syria and pressure on Turkey has intensified — the flow of its arms and personnel into Armenia has escalated to include advanced Navodchik-2 and Takhion UAV drone aircrafts, Mi-24 helicopter gunships and Iskander-M ballistic missiles. Last July, Putin ordered snap combat readiness checks in Armenia to test the ability of his forces to react to threats to Russia’s interests abroad.
Earlier this month on orders of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu, Russia began a massive military exercise in its “southwestern strategic direction,” which includes Armenia. The total strength of the regional operation included approximately 8,500 troops, 900 ground artillery pieces, 200 warplanes and 50 warships….CLICK HERE OR HIGHLIGHTED TITLE LINK FOR THE REST
WW3 / ISAIAH 17 WATCH:
More than two dozen Saudi Air Force personnel and a cargo of military equipment have arrived in Turkey to prepare for a joint air campaign in Syria.
Turkish media said on Thursday that some 30 officers had arrived onboard two C-130 military cargo planes at Incirlik military airbase south of Turkey two days ago.
The military personnel are expected to prepare for the deployment of Saudi fighter jets which are due to arrive in Turkey in the coming hours.
Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday that he expects the warplanes, which are to allegedly take part in an air campaign against Daesh Takfiri group in Syria, to be stationed at the Incirlik later in the day or on Friday.
However, some reports said the Saudi jets had already been deployed to Incirlik.
The deployment would be the first ever for Saudi warplanes in Turkey. There are already jets belonging to the United States, Britain and France at Incirlik, all allegedly involved in ongoing US-led air strikes against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
Despite having an array of differences on regional issues, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have coordinated efforts aimed at ousting the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. The two countries recently announced potential plans for dispatching ground troops to Syria to fight Daesh. The plan was later apparently withdrawn with Cavusoglu saying that sending troops to Syria is not on the agenda.
Riyadh and Ankara have widely been blamed for the surge in the deadly militancy in Syria as the pair have been supporting militants with funds, training and weapons.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon paid a working visit to neighboring Cyprus on Wednesday as the guest of Cypriot Defense Minister Christoforos Fokaides. During the visit, Ya’alon issued a stark warning about Iran’s regional aggression, adding that Tehran is constantly seeking to arm Hezbollah, and that Cypriot security forces have in the past year foiled an Iranian-Hezbollah attempt to set up terror cells on the island. He also described the chaos in Syria and the region as a kind of a third world war in which cultures and powers are clashing.
“The State of Israel views Cyprus as a true friend. Relations between the defense establishments, militaries, and intelligence communities go back years, are deep, and important. My arrival here symbolizes that,” Ya’alon said. The SOFA agreement with Cyprus, alongside close ties “with our good friend, Greece,” is vital for all states, he added. READ MORE
Things are heating up in Syria.
Dozens of Russian generals at a military base near the eastern Syrian city of Latakia were killed Sunday afternoon in a deadly car bomb attack committed by two opposition factions, Ahrar al-Sham and Bayan movement, Syrian opposition groups reported on Wednesday.
According to the media office of Ahrar al-Sham, the two factions, in coordination with local jihadists who were located at the Russian military base, decided to bomb the car after they observed a gathering of senior Russian generals at the military base….MORE AT HIGHLIGHTED LINK ABOVE OR HERE

AND HERE IS A BIG BONUS POST BY GONZ AT CANARY CRY RADIO TODAY!!
Hey it’s Gonz:
Breaking Israel News dot com published an article titled “Is Nibiru Coming and Bringing Messiah In Its Wake?” In it, Rabbis are quoted with their belief of a coming Messiah, in step with the prophecies written in the Zohar. These prophecies are tied to celestial events, in particular Nibiru, or Planet X. Recent reports of the “discovery” of Planet X, in conjunction with an alleged asteroid approaching Earth called the 2013 TX 68, all appear to be part of the set up for the “big announcement,” or perhaps more tangible, the “big event!”
In addition, a story that a meteor exploded over the Atlantic ocean with the power of 12,000 tons of TNT, along with the fact, that I’ve personally witnessed an increase of chem-trails in the sky (Geoengineering), as well as a light, streak across the sky at 4 AM just a few days ago…things are a little crazy right now!
Principalities and powers, rulers, darkness, and spiritual wickedness are manifesting at a higher and higher intensity level. Between the technological/virtual worlds, and the high strangeness of the times we are in, the enemy has gone into overdrive. So tune into God, and let Him lead your path.
The Full Armor of God
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
