The Fate of Damascus, Syria of the Bloodshed That Progresses Now
As accounts of Syrian deaths and accounts of morally perverse state violence by president Assad during his regime, most importantly his regimes' use of very extreme torture on his dissident citizens as various international news agencies and other sources have reported, many are left wondering what shall be the fate of Damascus as well as the rest of Syria. As proclaimed by the prophet Isaiah, Damascus shall see its end as even being a city and shall be reduced to rubble. That is the near and present road set before us and those blessed with the eye for seeking the truth in prophecy and those who wisely look at the road ahead of them, desiring to know the truth, understand this. What will happen in the near future will be the ruin, indeed of the physical Damascus; its buildings, its infrastructure, its roads as well as its bridges, etc, but those many blessed and cherished peoples among the Syrians,who escape the end of this conflict, should escape Damascus, and its leaders, though, shall be shattered, for the political leadership as other authorities there have violently pressed upon those seeking of peace and those seeking of life, lovingkindness and the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the real point, in truth, of the Arab Spring, in Syria, and amongst other so-called Arab freedom loving people in general. To quote Isaiah again (Isaiah:17) The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 3 The 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.4 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. This prophecy shows that the Syrians who escape this civil war shall become as the glory of Jacob, Jacob being the descendants of the patriarch of people of European and Jewish heritage. But this prophecy also shows that this time shall see a weakening of power of the people of Jacob, likewise. Interesting stuff, no? Blessed be God and may he protect those both in Syria and the rest of the world who love him and fear his name.
