The End of Damascus: Closer than ever!
The Bible says that a disaster looms over the city of Damascus, Syria. It will not be like anything else in history. The escalation of events is so severe that it appears we could wake up tomorrow and Damascus will be gone!
Isaiah 17:1 says, “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.” And Jeremiah 49:24, 27 says “Damascus has grown feeble... I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, And it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad."
Damascus is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It has never been turned into a ruinous heap. That means God’s word to Isaiah is still waiting to be fulfilled. And the prophecy is so specific that it even speaks of destroying the king’s palace. Currently that is the residence of Syria’s president, Bashar Assad. Are these prophecies about ready to be fulfilled?
