Israel and Iran made direct military contact for the first time 10 days ago (Saturday 10th February). At around 4am Iran sent a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) into Israeli airspace from a base in Syria. An IAF (Israeli Air Force) Apache helicopter shot down the UAV, and Israel subsequently launched multiple airstrikes inside Syria. This development contains unique elements that many prophecy experts are now saying is a sign of the beginning of the Messianic war of Gog and Magog.

Syria launched a barrage of surface-to-air-missiles (SAM) at the Israeli warplanes, damaging one F-16 and forcing the two-man crew to eject with one pilot suffering serious injuries. According to Breaking Israel News, this was the first time since 2006 that an Israeli warplane had been shot down by an enemy and the first time an Iranian drone entered Israel.

The confrontation marks a serious escalation in an already volatile region that brings the armies of many nations in closer proximity with one another.

In the famed war of Gog and Magog, mentioned in the 38th and 39th chapters of the book of Ezekiel in the Bible, we see Persia mentioned as one of the main powers attacking Israel. (The land of ancient Persia is now modern Iran.)

To see Israel and Iran having a military confrontation for the first time, along with all the other “end times” prophecies happening right now (such as earthquakes in many places), is a sure sign we are in a very significant period of time – a time that has been foretold and warned of.
