Damascus’ Days are Numbered

There’s a Storm Brewing in the Middle East

We would think that storm would be bearing down on Jerusalem, maybe Tehran. No, this one is targeting Damascus. The entrenched Assad regime is battling to retain its power against insurgents. Meanwhile innocent civilians are being slaughtered by both sides. Christians, who refuse to take sides in the conflict are being targeted, tortured and martyred. They are being drug from their homes and churches and executed in the most horrible fashion.

US war ships are steaming toward the region, Turkey is amassing armaments and troops on the Syrian border. Nations and powers are weighing in from around the region and around the world.

Also weighing in is the Word of God, which predicts:

Isa 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Jer 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. 24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail. 25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy! 26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts. 27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

The bottom line is this, a day is coming when Damascus, Syria will no longer be a city. Presently, it is one of the longest continually inhabited cities in the world. But her days are numbered.

The internet has offered some grizzly images of Islamic crazies sawing the heads off of innocent civilians while chanting “Allahu akbar!” God in the heavens has taken note of these atrocities done in the name of the moon god and will not continue to countenance this fanatic barbarity. Syria is about to go down.

More proof that the end is near. We had better take note and prepare!
