Damascus, one of the oldest cities in the world today, will be destroyed in the not so distant future. It has been nicked named the city of Jasmine and was once a great Christian nation in biblical times but today it is not so. It is not only the capital of Syria but it is also the second largest city in Syria, and it is in today’s news in a big way around the world.
The Judgment of God is near for this city because they have forgotten God. It is unknown if it will be now or later on God’s time clock, but with all that is happening there now, it can’t be far off in terms of days, months, weeks or years.
Let’s take a look at the prophecy itself.
Isaiah 17 verse 1: “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.”
Will America play a role in this prophetic fulfillment? Unknown. I don’t think Obama will get the support he needs in the United States House of Representatives to bomb Syria right now. However, no president has ever been turned down before when asking for this type of military strike that I know of. I would be surprised to see the House go against the majority of concerned public citizens and launch missiles against the will of Americans. Obama and his cohorts, not so much.
One thing is clear, the city of Damascus is toast in the future, and anyone living there reading this needs to leave before its too late.
