Russian troops announced Monday plans to coordinate a peace-terms agreement with a major Syrian rebel group.
Revelation 20:8 NLT
“He will go out to deceive the nations–called Gog and Magog–in every corner of the earth. He will gather them together for battle–a mighty army, as numberless as sand along the seashore.”
Many have speculated whether which modern-day nations Gog and Magog may be referencing. But as the end times draw near, the chess pieces appear to be linked to Russia and Syria.
At the close of 2017, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu publicized over twitter Russia’s newfound, permanent presence at two Syrian military bases by tweeting:
“Shoigu Last week, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief confirmed the structure and staff of the main basing points in Tartus and Khmeimim. We proceeded to form a permanent grouping”
Douma, the last town in eastern Ghouta to be controlled by rebel oppositions, is essentially well-armed by the formidable Army of Islam.
Deputy head of the Chief Operational Department at the Russian General Staff, Lt. Gen. Stanislav Gadzhimagomedov, told agencies he plans to “take them out soon” in reference to the Islam insurgents maintaining power over Ghouta.
Negotiations with opposition forces have only come as the result of thousands of rebel fighters and their families leaving the area due to weeks of Russian air forces bombing the lands while Syrian military troops moved in on foot.
According to the Syrian Central Military Media, 18 buses transporting 1,100 civilians, containing 238 opposition rebels, flowed from the eastern towns of Jobar, Zamalka and Arbeen heading straight toward Idlib.
Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Reconciliation in Syria released a statement acknowledging that more than 400 people left Douma early Monday as well.
114,000 Syrian refugees have been evacuated from Ghouta since Russian troops arrival, leading many in the Syrian government to favor Russia’s presence.
Sounds like not only the beginning of a solid alliance, but the potential happenings for World War III.
