ISRAEL - The nation state of Syria has collapsed , a fact that Israel must internalize about its northern neighbour , a senior Israeli defence official said Saturday. “ Syria is a dead state, and Israel must understand this and prepare accordingly,” Amos Gilad , the director of the political-security division in the Defence Ministry and a former senior Military Intelligence official , told a cultural event in Beersheba. “ Assad’s grip on the country is faltering, it is a land without rule,” Gilad said , according to Army Radio. With swathes of Syria falling into the hands of opposition forces , including jihadist groups , Assad has increasingly relied on support from allies Iran and the Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah , both sworn enemies of Israel.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - So where is all this terrible conflict heading ? It is heading to one cataclysmic event. The total destruction of Damascus. The end of Syria as a nation state. But somehow at the same time Israel is drawn into the collapse of Syria. We know this because Isaiah 17 tells us that Israel is greatly weakened at the time Syria implodes. We can see Israel beginning to prepare for this eventuality. The nightmare for Israel is that if Assad falls the rebel and terror groups that will take over will be even worse than he was. It is when Syria comes to a final end that Russia takes on the mantle long foretold as the new king of the north. Daniel chapter 11 is all about the ancient king of the north – Syria. But it switches to the new king of the north in Daniel 11v40. It might well be that the “ push ” from the king of the south against the king of the north comes over Syria. The word push means to gore - as a goat would with its horn. The push has NOT happened yet. It happens at the time of the end. The time of the end is upon us. The question is ... WHO is the ' King of the South ' to emerge ??
ISAIAH 17 v 3-4 - The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria : they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. Ephraim = northern Israel . . . Jacob = Israel
