Trump’s View of Syria and Assad Altered After ‘Unacceptable’ Chemical Attack

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: The US is now blaming Syria’s leader Basher Assad for the chemical weapon explosions that took place the other day. Yet, the news media originally told us it was the rebels who had the chemical weapons and Assad simply destroyed the facility. I do not believe the so called “rebels” were producing chemical weapons to begin with, they most likely received them from the West. We have a setup of great magnitudes here. Read trump’s quotes below, he is very influenced by the television set and of course Satan’s children are in his own stead. It would please the children of Satan greatly to step up the Syrian conflict and make it a full blown war. I imagine once Damascus falls it will not be long until Iran is next on the chopping block.

“It crossed a lot of lines for me. When you kill innocent children, innocent babies … with a chemical gas that is so lethal that people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines — beyond a red line.” – CNN

Syria was one of several places, along with North Korea and Iran, where Mr. Trump on Wednesday threatened a forceful American response. But in all these cases, he declined to disclose options, arguing that there was a need for surprise but stoking worries that his fledgling administration is not ready to deal with multiple threats across the Middle East and Asia.

Nothing, it seems, affects Mr. Trump’s judgments as much as what he sees on television. On Wednesday, he said the images of death inside Syria affected him, presumably in ways they did not under similar circumstances four years ago. “I will tell you that attack on children had a big, big impact on me,” he said. “That was a horrible, horrible thing.”

  1. To Jackbolin: Here is my take on “Kenite”

    According to Strong’s H7017 Qeyniy (1 Chron. 2:55), patron. from 7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:-Kenite

    H7014 Qayin, the same as 7013 (with a play upon the affinity to 7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Pal., and of an Oriental tribe:–Cain, Kenite (-s) Kenites are descendants of Cain.

    Cain was not the son of Adam. Cain & Abel were fraternal twins, but Cain, who became the first human murderer, was the son of Satan, the cherubim which covereth (Eze. 28:13-19) who murdered the souls of all mankind when he lied to Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden, causing them to fall. The fall of Adam and Eve, had nothing at all whatsoever to do with eating an apple. See the parable of the sower in Matt. 13:24-30, and then see Jesus’ explanation of the parable to His disciples in Matt. 13:36-43.

    1 Chron. 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.

    These 3 tribes are not of the lineage or genealogy of the 12 tribes of Israel, which are descended from the 12 sons of Jacob, who is descended from Abraham, who is descended from Adam. (See the true lineage of Jesus Christ in Luke 3:23-38) (Also see “The Book of the Generations of Adam” in Genesis 5:1-32

    How did the Kenites become intermixed with the scribes?

    See the description of the punishment of Cain in Gen. 4:10-12, He can’t farm for the earth will not yield produce out of her strength, and fugitive, and a vagabond he is to be, and his progeny with him.

    See Jer. 35:2-11 and compare what they say about themselves, to Cain’s punishment. And esp. vs. 8-9 they state “Thus we have obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us , to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; vs. 9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed: Vs. 10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us. Vs. 11 But when it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, ‘ Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians:’ so we dwell at Jerusalem.” (So, they, the Rechabites are of the Kenites, sons/descendants of Cain.)

    Hobab, Reuel, the Midianite priest, Moses father-in-law, was NOT a Kenite by birth or genealogy. He was descended from Midian, the son of Abraham by Keturah, his 2nd wife after Sarah died. (Gen. 25:1-4) I don’t agree with E.W. Bullinger, who stated in the note on vs. 4 “these=the tares, sown after Isaac, the good seed.” I disagree with him because Midian is a direct son of Abraham, and I believe he would’ve been included in the covenant with which God made to Abraham, and his descendants.
    Yes, I agree with you that a Kenite can repent, and accept Jesus Christ as his/her Lord & Savior and be saved. But Satan, himself, cannot.

    • Thank you for clearing that up rily. I do want to say there is nothing that documents Cain is the “first” murderer. We have a previous Bible Q&A where we went into this subject which can be found here:

      To alleviate confusion, I personally will call the kenites “children of Satan” as that is what they are. New Bible students will not know what a “kenite” is until they come along in the Word. Use whichever term you are comfortable with, but keep that in mind in your travels.

      • Gen. 4:8 “And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.”
        Matt. 23:35 “That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.”
        Jesus didn’t list anybody else as having been murdered first, when He was rebuking the scribes and the Pharisees.
        But, you have the right to your own beliefs.

        • I do not really follow your point here. No one is debating Cain is the son of Satan. Maybe you should read the study and Bible Q&A I left you so you have some perspective with your comment.

          Even so we have gone a bit off topic. Thank you.

  2. There are a whole lot of Christian people that might have voted for Trump. That’s a whole lot of judging and condemnation you’re passing upon a whole lot of people that you don’t even know, and I’m one of them. Do you have the absolute knowledge of God to be able to look into every heart and mind in the entire world to know who actually is a Kenite? I don’t think so.

    • Truth offends at times rily. I think many have a difficult time admitting that they fell for a lie. It is what it is. If you understand who the children of Satan are then you shoul know nothing I said is a lie. Look with your own eyes. Our Father’s Letter is coming to pass before our eyes an the attack that just took place is a prime example.

      P.S. Concerning your other comment, you will need to be patient for approval. But please do as you wish. Thank You.

      • And to my understanding of scripture, there are not just literal sons of Cain, but spiritual as well! If you are not with God, but against God for whatever reason, you have joined the opposing family! Yet what you do in ignorance as sinfulness may not be held as condemnatory per-say! Our actions do make up our heavenly garments! And the thread of those garments are weaved by our works.
        Revelations 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books was opened: and another book of life: and the dead were judged (spiritually dead) were judged out of those books, ACCORDING to their WORKS. Don’t know about everyone else, but I would personally like to attend the wedding supper of the lamb (Our Lord Yeshua’s) with more on than just my Hanes tighty whities! I really wear boxer’s, but you get my point! Lol! Seriously speaking though! God Bless!

        • Todd, Todd, Todd. That was pretty funny, but I definitely learned a bit more about you than I wanted to know.

          There are no spiritual sons of Cain, other than they are all wicked. In the spiritual realm it would be angels who chose to follow Satan. I think you were saying that in another form basically. I just want to be clear. Thank you.

          • Well, that is in response to my bible teacher that I agree with, as I do with you in abundance in the Word! However, as the otherwise wicked being the spiritual seeds of Cain! Not the literal! Which is only my scriptural opinion as I see it to be synonymously the same, so shall your definition be yours and mine as mine… And is what it is with no real indifference of significance! God Bless brother!

        • I’ll be lucky to own a swim suit up there!!!LOL!!!

    • Rily, I’m curious…what’s your definition of a “kenite”?I’m not trying to be condescending at all…I know for a fact that there’s a LOT of confusion out there as to what or who a kenite actually is. It’s a race of people, plain and simple…it’s not something that’s in their heart and mind, it’s in their blood. Of course a kenite can come to salvation through repentance just like all of us, but it is not something that’s reflective of their thoughts or actions…though their bloodline certainly does tell in their thoughts and actions. Keep digging, the truth’s there for you to see.
