Damascus Destroyed (2011-2012)
Isaiah 17:1-3, 14 – “ 1An oracle concerning Damascus. See, Damascus will cease to be a city, and will become a heap of ruins. 2Her towns will be deserted forever . . . 3The fortress will disappear from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus . . . 14At evening time, lo, terror! Before morning, they are no more . . .”
Jeremiah 49:27 – “I will set fire to the walls of Damascus, and it will completely burn the strong cities of King Ben-Hadad.”
Amos 13:4-5 – “This is what the LORD says: “For the many crimes of Damascus, I will punish them. I will break the gate bars of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitants from the Valley of Aven, and the one who holds the scepter from Beth-Eden; and the people of Aram shall go into exile to Kir, says the LORD.”
Zechariah 9:4 – “But the Lord will take away all she has and destroy her power on the sea. That city will be destroyed by fire.”
Last year we learned that a nuclear reactor had once again been discovered nearby Damascus. I do not doubt that this reactor is of Iranian manufacture. We all know how much the Arabs and Iranians love guns, RPGs, bombs, IEDs, and other such killing items. The intelligence community believes that these items, biological agents, and other weapons of mass destruction are stored in or near Damascus.

This year, Israel and Syria are braced for war, and even the Arab League has placed sanctions against Syria.

The link between Syrian and Turkish peoples is stronger than ever as they both agree that Western countries are trying to divide the region and destabilize it. Syria has often accused the United States of gross interference in Arab League affairs, and claims that The United States is one of the western nations attempting to rekindle violence in Syria and other Arab nations of the Middle East. The Arab spring may yet become an Arab winter!

Syria’s President Assad has threatened to attack Israel if there is any Western military intervention in Syria’s domestic affairs. Assad states: “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.” He has also threatened “to set fire to the Middle East, and especially to Israel, if NATO attacks.”

Without doubt, Damascus is in for some interesting times, and will be destroyed. Isaiah 17 tells us that Damascus will be destroyed between evening and morning: “The city of Damascus will be destroyed; only ruins will remain . . . People will leave the cities of Aroer . . . The government in Damascus will end . . . At night the people will be very frightened. Before morning, no one will be left . . .”
Jeremiah 49, and Zechariah 9 tell us that God will destroy the city by fire. Amos 1 tells us that God will cut the people off. Some of these prophecies have been fulfilled in past history, and some are yet to come, and others may be repeated, as prophecy often has more than one fulfillment.
Note that Syria, however, is not one of the nations mentioned in Psalm 83! Is this because it has already been destroyed? Could all these conflicts listed above be the sparks that starts the war of Psalm 83 and destroys Damascus?

Scripture tells us that God himself is the one who destroys Damascus. Consider this scenario: The Iranian built reactor becomes infected by the Stuxnet virus. It blows up after sunset. The weapons stored nearby are impacted and also blow up and catch on fire. The city is leveled before the sun rises. Damascus is no more. . . Damascus is destroyed, along with nearby cities.
And guess who gets blamed? You’ve got it: Israel! Could this be the spark that starts the war of Psalm 83? Note that Syria is not one of the nations mentioned in this Psalm! See /2011/01/31/god-will-glorify-his-name-before-the-nations-israel-will-stand-alone
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set for all of the end times prophecies to be fulfilled. That being said, one can only ask: “How imminent is the return of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach?”
