The old city of Damascus

The old city of Damascus


DAMASCUS WHAT WILL HAPPEN THAT IT BECOMES A RUIN? Isaiah 17: 1The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2The cities of Aroer are forsaken they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 3The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.

When we read these parts of Isaiah it is obvious that Damascus of today is still there, and it is one of the oldest cities in the world. Conclusion must be that Isaiah 17 is still a future event.

Furthermore, we read that it will become a ruinous heap, but it is a very large city! What will happen? Besides that, these verses tell us that from then on there will not be a kingdom anymore in Syria. Even today with all the other armies of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others Syria is still a kingdom with Assad as their leader and king.

So, what will happen that such a sudden change will take place for this kingdom and its city?

A suggestion: Iran has many proxies in Syria and other countries. Today they are completing a nuclear bomb to destroy Israel, a plan they are working on for decades. Why sent a bomb from Iran directly and not use a proxy in Syria?

Iran sent already daily a lot of weapons to Syria, why not sent all the goods for an atomic bomb to Damascus and assemble it there? Then you can fire the rocket with the bomb from Damascus.

A weird idea?

Where would Israel retaliate when a destructive bomb comes from Damascus instead of from Iran?

Iran sent its drones and rockets now already from Lebanon and other places. So nothing new to that. And where would you hide such material that is necessary to make that atomic bomb? Well mostly in a place where nobody will be allowed to search, and Israel is not so stupid to bomb.

The palaces of Assad in Damascus will be the best spot to hide this installation. And during the launching of this rocket something goes wrong and will explode in their faces?

Stupid idea?

Ask where Hamas places its rocket launchers! In hospitals and schools!

Damascus will be destroyed very sudden, that is what Isaiah 17 tells us. One such bomb is enough, besides we read those other cities from Aroer will be abandoned. Can nobody live there because of radiation?

The future will tell us what really will happen. It is even possible that Israel will deviate the rocket from their country towards the north, from whatever place it will be fired.

Isaiah 17 tells us furthermore that in this time Israel becomes very poor (vs 4-11) A Day of grief and desperate sorrow it will be. To make the people of Israel to repent and return to the Lord.

The end of the chapter (vs12-14) tells us what will happen to the many nations that came to plunder and loot Israel. In the evening there is trouble, but in the morning, it is gone! The Lord will destroy these enemies.

See also Ezekiel 38, where we find these same events.

That means that Isaiah 17:1-3 will happen just on the brink of the Rapture, while the war of Ezekiel 38 is the opening of the second seal of Revelation 6. And at that moment, the opening of the seals, the Bride of Christ, the Church is already in heaven with the Lord.

We might ask: But what will happen to the USA, we read nothing about them? Not taking sides in the war of Ezekiel 38 or anything else.

Surprise answer: after Isaiah 17 comes chapter 18, and there we find what will happen to the USA. They are the very busy country with a lot of interests all over the world in very close connection with Israel, the land with the strange language and most important: it is very small compared to the former days from Salomon, but it will be a great nation again under the Kingdom of the Lord.

This very busy country is the USA and a woe is spoken about it: a disaster will come. See my website:
