23 May 2019: Jeremiah 49 is figuring prominently these days with aspects relating to BOTH Iran and Syria standing front and center. As noted in the comments section, SITREP C5-18 from last August had the expected battle for Idlib (northwestern Syria) as a key focus. Well, the battle there has been joined and has been raging for a couple weeks or so. Russian and Syrian aircraft have been bombing the daylights out of the region. And, as of yesterday, the US State Department, officially announced its suspicion that the al-Assad regime is once again using chemical weapons against the insurgency. Will cruise missile strikes from the Western alliance result again? It's a very distinct possibility.
As some may be aware, Eschatology Today does not see Egypt as a part of the current and final fulfillment of Psalm 83 (plus Isaiah 11:14 and Ezekiel 28:24-26). Egypt and Israel have been partnering for some time now in their common war against terrorists, mainly the IS branch in Sinai. There's a new aspect to this partnership. The massive fires raging in central and southern Israel have severely taxed the Israel's fire fighting capabilities. So Egypt has offered and Israel has accepted Egypt's offer of two additional fire fighting aircraft to join the battle. The Egyptian aircraft will arrive in a few hours time and get to work.

Contrary to the predictions of some phoney teachers, the EU Parliamentary elections did not launch the antichrist onto the world stage. This is what happens when phoney teachers utilize non-bliblical sources for their prognostications, which fail, first time and every time. The prophetic truth for Bible students on the rise of Antichrist is found in II Thessalonians 2:3 and Eschatology Today posts of two years ago regarding the Ten Toes and The Little Horn. Even at this late day, there is no human being on earth who can, with absolute certainty, identify who the ten toes are, much less the little horn to rise up among them. And that's the truth. In 2019 we continue watching as our Lord has commanded us.
And, nevertheless, what actually took place were paradigm changing big political wins for Nigel Farage and the UK Brexit Party; Marine Le Pen and the National Rally (RN) over the existing order of thir nation states and, more importantly, the European Union. In France, that order had been led by Emmanuel Macron, who will now face even more calls for his resignation and new national elections. In the UK PM Theresa May just resigned during the voting that occurred between Thursday and Sunday (23-26 May). Perhaps she had read some tea leaves or accurate exit polling data to know that the time to get out is when the getting out is good? One cannot abandon ship after it has sunk, right?
The electoral victories of the anti-EU parties is a political paradigm shift that may well lead to the only accurate description, the one given by God Himself, to the prophet Daniel in a vision concerning those ten toes as recorded in Daniel 2:40-43. When those ten toes can be identified with certainty, then watching for the 11th, the little horn, should begin in earnest., but only within the context of Gabriel's interpretation of another vision given to Daniel and recorded in the plain text of Daniel 8:15-27. All of this is but a prelude to the details revealed by Gabriel to Daniel circa 539 BC, as recorded in Daniel 9, and known as the Seventy Weeks prophecy.
Apologies for repeating previous eschatological data here, but there are some folks who seriously require sound Bible-based instruction on these issues to offset the nonsense they've ben taught thus far by others.
28 May 2019: This update is specific to the first paragraph of the 23 May update above. The assessment for this update is that something very big is brewing in northwestern Syria. This something is a direct challenge to those who say the Syrian war has ended and Bashar al-Assad won.
For at least ten consecutive days it has been observed that a massive, even unprecedented, Russian Air Force (RuAF) heavy airlift (we call it a surge operation) has continued, non-stop, from Moscow Chkalovsky Air base and Mozdok (southern Caucasus) Air Base into the Hmeimim and Hamah Syrian Air Bases. The aircraft are strategic heavy lifters such as the Antonov-124 and IL-76MD. As these aircraft cross southwards over the eastern Black Sea they are entering and flying directly over Turkey proper before entering Syrian airspace. This is combined with Iranian and Syrian heavy lift aircraft flying daily to and from Tehran to Damascus and Tiyas (T4) Air Bases. Yes, something very big is brewing in northwestern Syria.
