OK. Whaddya Say We Let God Weigh In On Syria? Caution: Explicit Bible Words

Before you jump all over the voting button, remember you don't have to read this... and when God says stuff it always comes to pass.
I happen to find great peace in this little 'study' because I know God always has a purpose and His endgame is a good one.
And one last thing, I don't know everything...and neither do you!

Bible Prophecy

Damascus (Syria)

Will Be Destroyed

Damascus will one day be completely destroyed and left uninhabitable..

Syria is almost a 'city-state' with much of its population living in and around the city of Damascus. Some historians and archaeologists 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 also the home of many Islamic terrorist groups and its army invaded and has occupied Lebanon for almost 30 years. Currently, Syria (with Iran) is supporting the Hizbullah in southern Lebanon against Israel. Syria, like the rest of Israel's Islamic neighbors hate Israel, have invaded and attacked Israel on several occasions, and have publicly called for the destruction of Israel. It is interesting to note that a number of years ago an Israeli general, on commenting on the growing threat of Syria, said the easiest thing to do to protect Israel from Syria would be to drop a nuclear bomb on Damascus . . .

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

"The burden of Damascus.


Damascus is taken away from being a city,

and it shall be a ruinous heap" (This prophecy has not yet been fulfilled ... but it will be fulfilled)
(Isaiah 17:1)

The Bible warns it will also be a time of trouble for Israel...

"And in that day (usually refers to the coming 'Apocalypse')

it shall come to pass,
(when God's Word says "it shall come to pass" it always happens.)

the glory of Jacob (Israel) shall be made thin,

and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean."

(Isaiah 17:4) (Prophecies: ISRAEL and JERUSALEM)

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 ... and 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 'peace plan' upon nation Israel just before the coming 'Apocalypse' and Armageddon ...

We are told here (and in other prophetic passages) that a faithful few in Israel will turn back to God and His Word ... and may discover, from Scripture, that Jesus (Yeshua), IS the Eternal One (see Micah 5:2) 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)
(Prophecies of MESSIAH ...)
(The GENEALOGY of Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)

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)
(Prophecies: MESSIAH'S RETURN)

(Isaiah 17:10) (A Remarkable MATHEMATICAL Prophecy of Messiah ... WHEN Messiah would be "revealed") (The TWO Jewish Rabbis who DIVIDED the children of Israel 2000 Years Ago ... Rabbi Jochanan ben Zakkai and Rabbi Shaul)

God says none of His prophecies shall fail . . .

"For I am God, and there is no other.
for I am God, and there is none like me . . .
Declaring the end from the beginning,
and from ancient times
things that are not yet done."
(Isaiah 46:9-10)

"Search from the book of the LORD, and read:

not one of these (prophecies) shall fail;

not one shall lack her mate.

For My mouth has commanded it,

and His Spirit has gathered them."

(Isaiah 34:16)

"Indeed I (God) have spoken it;

I will also bring it to pass.

I have purposed it;

I will also do it.

Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted,

who are far from righteousness . . ."

(Isaiah 46:11-12)

"Before the decree is issued, before day passes like chaff,

before the LORD'S fierce anger comes upon you,

before the day of the LORD'S anger comes upon you!

Seek the LORD, all you meek of the Earth, who have upheld His justice.

Seek righteousness, seek humility.

It may be that you will be hidden

in the day of the LORD'S anger."

(Zephaniah 2:2-3)

Have a hard time believing in God? Just watch the news. We are living in dangerous times. The above verses are clear.

Why? God is warning us. God says He is doing these things both as a warning sign to the world and as verifiable evidence the Bible is true . . .

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 or ignore or treat as a common thing 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 ...

I don't like this stuff

It's a great example of how religion perpetuates war.

Now a group of Christians feel justified in destroying Syria because of some prophesy.

I'm sure the Muslims have their version too.

By the way, most people view Damascus as some sort of third world crazy land. Damascus is actually one of the most advanced cities in the region. Not only that its rich in human history and our intervention will likely leave scars that run deeper than most think.

The more I read the Israel comment you made I have to wonder how that's any different than what Amedinijahd said?

I steer clear of this stuff and did not vote it down but felt a comment was in order.

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

"Ruinous Heap" is a Natural State

"Ruinous heap" is the natural state. I'm pretty sure that's true, because when I defer maintenance on my house, it heads that way pretty quick.

I hear Chicago has the same problem. And California has quite a few ghost towns.

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night

America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
Will Jesus come again
And leave us slumbering where we lay
America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping
Will we be sleeping

Thank you

Working on "the burden" now

Anyone have input on: "The Burden of Damascus"

This is what I just keep turning up with:
That is the Mystery
More than you can see
Give up on your pondering
And fall down on your knees

Thank You so much for this post!Want to share this with you Barracuda-Trader.

It always comforts me especially what is going on.

"There Will Be A Day" Jeremy Camp


God never wrote a book.

People claiming to have spoken to a God, interpreted his words, then wrote it down.

Faith is a wonderful thing, however, blind allegiance to the words of man is dangerous.

Just about every good book ever written, has been made into a movie.

With billions of people believing every last word of "script"ure, one wonders how easy it would be to recreate the prophecy. Hmmm.

"The Destruction of Damascus", a live television event, brought to you by General Electric and The Book of James.

try reading a Bible with a Concordance

it always proves itself that way. Only the Bible can prove the Bible.

To think people believe the word of man that we evolved from apes and everything came from a big bang! People are so gullible.


Pick your poison.

1. We all came from apes.

2. We all come from the incestial relationships of Cain, Able, Seth and their sisters.

The only post on this thread that makes sense is Cuda's...Nobody Knows, oh and maybe yours.....People are so gullible.

Yes and no

We are the product of genetic engineering. We were formed (not CREATED mind you, but changed... formed) in the likeness of a "higher life form". Genesis and the Bible as a whole clearly recounts the story of our creation, unfortunately, people don't take the time to learn the actual Hebrew meanings behind the words and fail to realize that here are well over 5,000 typographical errors in the King James Bible that, when fixed, give a significantly different story than the fairy tale that the sheeple are taught.

He trained as a CNN talking head liar propagandist

To become the The Rothschild puppet in the liar state of IzUnReal.

If you see his lips moving he is lieing. I truth smaked Nitwit Yahoo in the face he would call it somthing else just to lie.


Who is that?


The supreme liar of the free world.


Oh geez...

...here people go quoting a book of which they have absolutely 0 understanding and applying it to modern-day situations. Also, "God" is a title, not a name... no more than calling someone President. Which God are you praying to? You don't even fucking know.

Thanks Barracuda I liked that alot

if you get a chance check out www.amazingdiscoveries.org, and click on media and then videos on demand, there are some amazing prophecy videos on there. I believe the Antichrist will come from the Catholic Church in my understandings of Prophecy. I could see the Pope coming in after this all happens asking us to unite under one god and that all religions worship the same god. If you get a chance check out www.amazingdiscoveries.org, it has some really awesome info.

Damascus has been destroyed twice

And, this same second coming crap is rehashed every 20 years.

Sorry, but when your god says stuff, it doesn't always happen. Even Jesus got the end of the world wrong:

Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. Matthew16:28
But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. Luke 9:27
Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. Matthew 23:36
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Matthew 24:34

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Do you just repeat what others

Say..these two verses you quoted - 23:36 & 24:34 are not about the end of the world. are both dealing with the destruction of Isreal which did come in 70ad. In this generation.

Will go look at the others to refresh my reference not that you care about the truth, at least any truth that would require to admit you are not god of your world.

He comes to raise the living and the dead, it is plainly stated in the Bible, so I don't know what you are trying to say? Oh and if you could state which version your passage came from? I find the King James Version to be the most precise.

First of all, it doesn't matter what the Bible says, it is a book of fiction about a myth.

My issue with all these "end of days" predictions coming out is that it happens every time something happens in the Middle East. That is the problem with "poetic" prophesy (Revelations, John, etc...). These exact same claims happened in the 30's, then again in the 60's, I remember them happening again in the 80's.

Tricksters and con-men have made millions off of this stuff over the decades.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

So you prefer the version of

So you prefer the version of the bible that was stripped down of any portions that the current king didn't like from the version that was selected by a group of men, selecting 'scripture' they agreed with rather than one that was selected by a group of men, selecting 'scripture' they agreed with.

And by what standard do you judge it to be precise? Are you immortal or have a lifespan over 2k years to have been there when most of the events took place. Oh wait make that 6k years since you would have had to be there for the creation of the universe as well.

Just because it fits you're beliefs the best doesn't make it precise.

I can cross reference it with the Concordance

and it has not failed the test yet. I don't read the Bible blindly.

By precise

he also may mean KJV 1611 it is the most traceable to an original Greek manuscript that hasn't gone through the edits of the other versions such as the NAV, NKJV, ASV and countless others that have been edited to serve the prince of the air. You know him right devisdevine?
