Bible Prophecy : Damascus Will Be Destroyed Before The End of Times !
Syria is almost a ‘city-state’ with much of its population living in and around the city of Damascus. Some historians and archaeologists believe Damascus may be the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and there is no record in ancient history of it ever being fully destroyed. Syria is also the home of many Islamic terrorist groups and its army invaded and has occupied Lebanon for almost 30 years. Currently, Syria (with Iran) is supporting the Hezbollah in southern Lebanon against Israel. Syria, like the rest of Israel’s Islamic neighbors hate Israel, have invaded and attacked Israel on several occasions, and have publicly called for the destruction of Israel. It is interesting to note that recently an Israeli general, on commenting on the growing threat of Syria, said the easiest thing to do to protect Israel from Syria would be to drop a nuclear bomb on Damascus.
Damascus, Syria will someday be completely destroyed and become a ‘ruinous heap’ : “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap” (Isaiah 17:1) This prophecy is happening at this very moment !!! The Bible warns it will also be a time of trouble for Israel : “And in that day (usually refers to the coming ‘Apocalypse’) it shall come to pass, (when God says ‘it shall come to pass’ it always happens.) The glory of Jacob (Israel) shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.” (Isaiah 17:4) Serious problems for Israel after the Destruction of Damascus !!!
We are told here (and in other prophetic passages) that a faithful few in Israel will turn back to God and His Word and may discover, from Scripture, that Jesus-Yeshua, is the Eternal One (see Micah 5:2) and Holy One of Israel : “At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One (Messiah) of Israel.” (Jesus-Yeshua, the promised Messiah) (Isaiah 17:7) There will be a coming time of trouble unlike anything in the history of the nation coming to the land of Israel … Jeremiah calls it ‘the Time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) Trouble … and it is hard to tell if this happens after Damascus is destroyed, or at the same time. We do know from Bible prophecies there will be a coming 3 1/2 year period of false peace in Israel brought in by a strong, powerful, and very popular world leader (also called the “Antichrist”) who will someday enforce a ‘peace plan’ upon nation Israel just before the coming ‘Apocalypse’ and Armageddon …
God tells us why Jacob’s (Israel’s) ‘trouble’ will come : “Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy Salvation, and hast not been mindful of the Rock of thy strength (the “Rock” is Messiah) (Isaiah 17:10) God says none of His prophecies shall fail : “For I am God, and there is no other for I am God, and there is none like me . Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done.” (Isaiah 46:9-10) “Search from the book of the LORD, and read: Not one of these (prophecies) shall fail, not one shall lack her mate. For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.” (Isaiah 34:16)
“Indeed I (God) have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it. Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness.” (Isaiah 46:11-12) “Before the decree is issued, before day passes like chaff, before the LORD’S fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger comes upon you! Seek the LORD, all you meek of the Earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the LORD. (Zephaniah 2:2-3)
Several Prophecies ForeTold the Destruction of Damascus before the start of World War III
Edgar Cayce foresaw the third world war even before the end of the second world war. He spoke of strife arising near the Davis Straits, Tunis, Libya, Egypt, and Damascus. The funny thing is that he named Damascus last ! When you look at the Arab Spring : It started in Tunis, Egypt, Libya and at this very moment we are at the time of the LAST prophecy : DAMASCUS ! When you look at the Nostradamus Prophecies and the prophecies of Baba Vanga : World War III would start in November 2010, when you look back in time : the end of 2010 was the time the Arab Spring was planned and started !!!
Also the prophecy about the assassination of “4 Heads of State” could be correct :
- President of Tunis Zine El Abidine Ben Ali (first head of state)
- The Libyan leader Moammar al Qadhafi was killed (second head of state)
- Hosni Mubarak of Egypt (Third head of state)
- The last one, the fourth head of state is Bashar al-Assad the leader of Syria !
After the fourth head of state Bashar al-Assad is removed, World War III will start and we al know that Iran or Syria cannot start WW-III, if there is a third world war, the only nations that can start or have to fight for getting a third world war are : US/NATO against Russia and China. All the other nations will pick a side, here is a possible scenario :
EAST : Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, N.Korea, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, …
WEST : US, Europe, India, Japan, S.Korea, Australia, Israel, …
Given the wars in the last years in Afghanistan, Iraq, Tunis, Libya, Egypt, Syria and the tensions in the Middle East with Iran right now, a third world war could certainly be a certainty. Edgar Cayce spoke specifically about a “wild dictator” that would lead to the fall of the Mideast (This could be Bashar al-Assad but it could also be the Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) and a global war that would “decimate humankind.” He predicted that it would all happen after the Damascus prophecy.
When asked in June 1943 whether it would be feasible to work towards an equitable international world currency or a stabilization of international exchange levels when the war WW III had ended, Cayce replied that it would be a long, long time before this would happen – it would be centuries before humans enjoy the freedoms and liberties that mankind experience in the 1930s and 1940s.
