Many analysts are calling the civil war in Syria the result of the Arab Spring that has spread across the Middle East and threatens to bring down Syrian President Bashar Assad with the opposition forces involved in fierce fighting in Damascus, the capital city of Syria.

The recent attacks on the Syrian leadership at the security headquarters in Damascus by a suicide bomber is evidence that the civil war is becoming more deadly day by day.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The recent suicide bomb attacks at the security headquarters in Damascus, Syria and the civil war raging throughout Syria is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As a result of the Arab Spring spreading across the Middle East, the people of Syria have become a major threat to the Syrian government led by Bashar Assad who actually followed his father's 40 year tenure as president of Syria. The opposition has suffered over 19,000 deaths in their struggle to bring down President Assad but have and are continuing to gain ground. What is now termed a "civil war" has world leaders calling for Assad to step aside which he has refused to do.

These same world leaders are mostly standing by and watching this horrific conflict seemingly unable to decide what action to take. Meanwhile, the Assad regime continues to fight on which is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The ancient Jewish prophet, Daniel prewrote history 2500 years ago when he laid out the scenario for the end of times. In Daniel 11:40 it states that the King of the North will be the leader to take a coalition of nations into Israel to destroy the Jewish state. The King of the North, defined in Daniel 11 verses 5 and following, is the nation of Syria today. Actually, Syria will make the first move against Israel followed by an alignment of nations which are mentioned in Daniel 11:40-43, Ezekiel 38, and Psalm 83. The end result of this attack on the Jewish state will be death for the attacking nations, Ezekiel 39:1-6.

The civil war developing in Syria is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
