Bible Prophecies






 Prophecies of Syria


Many historians believe Damascus may be the oldest continually inhabited city in the world, and there is no record in ancient history of it ever being fully destroyed. Syria is almost a 'city-state' with much of its population living in and around the city of Damascus.

Syria, like the rest of Israel's Islamic neighbors hates Israel and has publicly called for the destruction of Israel. Syria has also, for the first time in history, recently formed a strategic military alliance with both Russia and Iran, with their armies currently taking up battle positions along Syria's border with Israel. Turkey has also recently formed a military alliance with Russia and is holding high-level military cooperation meetings with Iran. An article from Israel recently reported Iran now has at least 13 permanent military bases in Syria.

It is interesting to note in the 1973 Yom Kippur war Israel considered using nuclear weapons against their enemies when early in the war it appeared Israel would be overrun and defeated by the invading Islamic armies.


Bible Prophecy warns Damascus will be utterly destroyed ...


Damascus, Syria will someday be utterly destroyed, and will become "a ruinous heap" ...


"The burden of Damascus.
Damascus is taken away
from being a city,
and it shall be
a ruinous heap"
(Isaiah 17:1)


This prophecy has never yet been fulfilled. It is also notable that Syria (or its ancient name Aram) is not listed among the Russia-Iran allies which will attack and invade Israel in Ezekiel 38. It may be this prophecy concerning the destruction of Damascus will be fulfilled just prior to the Russia-Iran invasion, or could even possibly be the catalyst for this coming Russia-Iran invasion of Israel.


The Bible then goes on to warn this prophecy will be fulfilled during a time of great trouble for nation Israel ...


"And in that Day it shall come to pass,
the glory of Jacob (Israel)
shall be made thin,
and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean."
(Isaiah 17:4)


There will be a coming time of trouble unlike anything in the history of the nation coming to the land of Israel. Jeremiah calls it “The Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7). It is hard to tell if this happens after Damascus is destroyed, or at the same time.

We do know from Bible prophecies there will be a coming 3 1/2 year period of false peace in Israel brought in by a strong, powerful, and very popular world leader (also called the "Antichrist") who will someday enforce a covenant or 'peace plan' upon nation Israel which will mark the exact beginning of the coming 7-year "Apocalypse."

We are told here (and in other prophetic passages) that a remnant in Israel will turn back to God and His Word around the time of Armageddon as they come to believe, from Scripture, that Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew), is the Eternal One (“from of old, from everlasting” see Micah 5:2), the Messiah and Holy One of Israel ...

"At that Day shall a man look to his Maker,
and his eyes shall have respect
to the Holy One (Messiah) of Israel."
(Isaiah 17:7)


God tells us WHY Jacob's (Israel's) "Trouble" will come . . .


"Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy Salvation,
and hast not been mindful
of the Rock of thy strength."   (The "Rock" is Messiah!)
(Isaiah 17:10)



Please remember . . .



The Kingdom of Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world, no matter who they are, where they live, or what they have done.  It is freely offered to any and all who will receive it.  Simply learn of Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah, invite Him into your life as Lord, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (proving there is a Kingdom of Heaven ... and a Hell).  Learn of Him and believe in Him . . . for He was the only one who has ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross.  He shed His blood, suffered, and died on the Cross to save you from your sins and from the utter darkness and torment of Hell, if you will accept it, believe it, and trust in it.  That is why Jesus is called Savior.  He now lovingly and graciously offers you life in Heaven (and we are warned it is a "take it or leave it" proposition.)  We have to consciously receive it and accept it in faith.  If you sincerely admit you have sinned (which means you will need a Savior to get into Heaven) and ask Jesus to come into your life and honestly try to stop doing (and saying) those things God says are wrong, you will go to Heaven ... and with open arms and tears of joy He will receive all who will come to Him in faith and in love ... It's God's Promise!!!



The only unpardonable sin is to reject God's love and His free offer of life in the Kingdom of Heaven by rejecting Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) who stepped forth from Eternity ("from of old, from everlasting"... see Micah 5:2) ... not to condemn the sinner, but to save the sinner (from the torment of Hell) and who willingly and lovingly shed His blood on the Cross so we can be washed clean of all our sins.  The Bible warns there will be no peace in our lives until we make peace with God through His Son, Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah.  The Bible also says there will be no peace in Israel or on Earth until Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah returns . . .
