UPDATE 25 April 2018: This update is intended to make folks think. A lot. Cast aside preconcieved notions about how and when the prophetic flood will runs its course; if one knows where to look one might see that the course has always been determined and is discussed within the prophecies themselves.
For example, Jeremiah 49:35 where the LORD of hosts says, "Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the foremost of their might." This has always been interpreted to refer to Iran's preeminent weapon of modern warfare - the ballistic missile. Here's the thing: Iranian missiles are not just in Iran, they have also been deployed to Syria, to Lebanon and even to Yemen.
The Houthi's of Yemen have fired off dozens of Iranian missiles, but not one has yet to actually hit its intended target. Most have been shot out of the sky, others left to fall harmlessly in desert expanses. Just an interesting observation I suppose.
In Iran itself, and in Lebanon with Hezbollah, the missiles have a more menacing impact upon Israel, and to a lesser extent US bases in the region and also the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Yet we are left with the refrain of the LORD of hosts (i.e. Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as The Existent ONE, and His innumerable army of angelic beings) is going to break (shabar) as in a violent act of wrecking, crushing, destruction into many pieces of this weapon of war. The question is, is this applicable just to the thousands of missiles in Iran which pose a direct threat to Israel, or does this shabar also include the throusands in Lebanon as well?
Final Update 2 May 2018: One final item to add to Global SITREP B2-18. Back in February, within SITREP A8-18 Regional Warfare and Global SITREP A5-18: Syria - Part III, readers were introduced to the Russian mercenary corporation known as ChVK Wagner. A rather large component of this Russian mercenary group was annihilated by CJTF-OIR at the battle of al-Tabiyeh in Dier Ez-Zor.
A late April OSINT report by the Conflict Intelligence Team, based upon British and French news reports, revealed an interesting detail about where ChVK Wagner has deployed its mercenrary troops that has a direct linkage to Ezekiel 38/39 as well as Daniel 11.
One of the Magog allies in Ezekiel's prophecy is Kuwsh. The nation of Kuwsh are are black men descended from Ham who have lived in Africa, south of Egypt for millennia. Also, in Daniel 11:40 this same ally is found "at the time of the end" in league with the "king of the north," but here he is identified as the "king of the south."
ChVK Wagner troops, allegedly serving as "instructors," have been deployed into the war-torn Central African Republic (CAR) and the Sudan. A quick look at any map of Africa locates the Central African Republic on the southwestern border of Sudan... a/k/a Kuwsh.
