The Trump administration has escalated the war in Syria by directly attacking the Assad regime forces more than once. It looks to prepare for its next attack:
The White House claims that the Assad regime of Syria is preparing for another chemical attack, which assumes that they have used chemical weapons previously. It will be the pretext for their next phase of escalation.
A nuclear, global war is implied in the prophecies of Revelation In Revelation 9: 14-15, it is written:
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Given that the four angels are bound in the Euphrates River, it is reasonable to assume that the war will start there. That river runs through Turkey, Syria, and Iraq. As the prophecy calls for a third part of men to die, it is also reasonable to assume that the war will result in an exchange of nuclear attacks. At present, the most likely scenario is a war which includes the US and Russia, given this assumption. However, it is too early for such a war to happen, as the Sixth Seal has not even been open, let alone the Seventh Seal.
Given our current understanding of the prophecy and the events in Syria, it is reasonable to assume that America will fail in driving out Russia from Syria at this time. Should Trump escalate the Syrian war into an all out direct attack against Assad, we can only assume that it will fail, and that some how, Russia will succeed in protecting their global interests by keeping Assad in power. Whatever actually does happen, the prophecies of Revelation tell us that the countries along the Euphrates River will continue to be full of trouble and conflict, eventually triggering a war that brings about the death of a third of mankind.
