World’s Media Pays Attention To Biblical Prophecy Regarding The Destruction Of Damascus, Syria
As reported in my popular May article: ‘The Bible Predicts the Destruction of Damascus, Syria in End-Time Prophecy,’ I highlighted some important Biblical prophecies regarding the coming destruction of Damascus in Syria. Whether this is the period when the important Isaiah prophecy is fulfilled or not, one cannot dismiss a prophetic passage that deals with the region that all eyes are focused on right now.
Now with the news that Obama is considering military action, some of the world’s mainstream media are also referring to these relevant pieces of Biblical prophecy regarding Syria, especially the passage in Isaiah 17:1, which says…
“The oracle concerning Damascus. ‘Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin. “
and a passage in Jeremiah 49:23-27…
‘Concerning Damascus. ‘Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, for they have heard bad news; they are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, it cannot be calmed. Damascus has become helpless; she has turned away to flee, and panic has gripped her; distress and pangs have taken hold of her like a woman in childbirth. How the city of praise has not been deserted, the town of My joy! Therefore, her young men will fall in her streets, and all the men of war will be silenced in that day,’ declares the Lord of hosts. ’I will set fire to the wall of Damascus, and it will devour the fortified towers of Ben-hadad.’
A prophecy in Revelation 9:14-15 also indicates that one third of mankind will perish in a world war (three) which will originate from the area of the Euphrates river (which runs through Syria and the Middle East). However, although some are suggesting this war could escalate into world war three very shortly, we should be reminded of a passage in Matthew 24:6…
“…In the last days…You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”
