I’ve blogged about it before but there is a coming the destruction of Damascus. Here is an excerpt from Rapture Ready.com. Its one of the oldest cities in the world and therefore this scripture is yet future. If you watched the evening news about Syria and chemical weapons, you’ll know Basher has readied them but has not given the go ahead to use them yet. Should he decide to use them, NATO in conjunction with the US has said that its use would be the red line. An allied attack would happen if he started using chemicals on the free syrian army or civilians. There doesn’t seem to be any end to the syrian conflict, no one is really winning so Bashers fuse may be short at this point. He has Russia and Iran on his side as well supporting him with intelligence and weapons. It would be a death sentence for Basher to proceed but it doesn’t appear he wants to give up power any time soon either so he will need to resort to larger weapons somehow some time unless he magically decides to sit down and work with the rebels. Thats not likely to happen if any of the other dictators ends are an indication. Mubarak, Gadaffi and the various others that have fallen to the ‘arab spring’.
This appears to be bible prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes. The birth of Israel was, the splitting of the land of Israel was (the latest UN vote to recognize the palestinian people as a country and their declaration of east Jerusalem as their capital), and the destruction of Damascus will be. Even if this is not the moment in time, it has to happen if the bible is correct and its never been destroyed as a city yet SO… this is a big sign post when it does happen. I didn’t say IF, its an obvious WHEN. Keep your eyes open, read the bible, its telling you whats going on in the news and in the world today.
Isaiah 17: Destruction of Damascus
In the last days, the Bible tells us of a horrible series of events that will take place in the lands of Israel and Syria. One of these events is the disappearance of Damascus as one of the premiere cities in the world. The oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet, Damascus has witnessed at least 5,000 years of human history, and some historians believe the city actually dates back to the seventh millennium BC. In fact, Paul was on the road to Damascus when Christ first appeared to Him, an event that transformed not only his life, but the course of human history.
In the very near future, Damascus will once again play a major role in human events. The prophet Isaiah provides us with God’s commentary on a future conflict between Damascus and Israel, and in so doing, he reveals certain prophecies which have been partially fulfilled in the past. However, the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah 17 remains in the future. The current existence of Damascus, which will one day cease to be a city, as well as the historical absence of the coalition of nations prophesied to attack Israel and be destroyed by God, is proof that Isaiah 17 prophesies events yet future.
This is what God revealed to the prophet Isaiah:
“This message came to me concerning Damascus: ‘Look, Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted. Sheep will graze in the streets and lie down unafraid. There will be no one to chase them away. The fortified cities of Israel will also be destroyed, and the power of Damascus will end. The few left in Aram will share the fate of Israel’s departed glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 17:1-3 (NLT)
These opening verses paint a bleak picture. The city of Damascus will become a heap of ruins, utterly destroyed. Few, if any, buildings will be left standing. The once great city will be devoid of human life and will become home to all manner of wildlife in the absence of humans to chase them away.
