The Burden of the Damascus Ruins
The Bible is specific in terms of prophecy. And if you pray and ask GOD to give you discernment then you will SEE even more within GOD’S Word.
Prophecies can, and do have dual aspects.
Isaiah prophesied the destruction and abandonment of Damascus, Syria over 2700 years ago.
Damascus has proved to be a most resilient city. It was conquered by the Israelites (1000 BC), the Assyrians (732 BC), the Babylonians (606 BC), the Persians (530 BC), the Greeks (330 BC), the Nabateans (85 BC), the Romans (63 BC), the Byzantines (634 AD), the Mamelukes (1250 AD) and the Ottoman Turks (1516 AD). But the city itself has always survived and is now claimed to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world with a 5,000 year history.
Another thing to note about Damascus was that it is also “home” to many of the world’s leading terrorist masterminds.
The city of Damascus will become a heap of ruins, utterly destroyed. Few, if any, buildings will be left standing.
How much more can it take?
The Ruins of Homs, Syria and the Refugee Crisis – Feb 3, 2016
From these three places in The Bible, there is NO DOUBT that this is a time when Revelation speaks of the entire Earth being plagued with darkness, hail, and other horrific events.
Seriously, combining the deaths of fowl, animals, and sea creatures…we are witnessing a time like never before and it precedes the descriptions we read here.
The Bible tells us when Damascus has seen its ruin, we have little time left to make our peace with GOD.
THE ETERNAL JOURNAL
GOD knew the end then the beginning…
The religion we see, its version cheap,
with no talk of sin not thinking they will reap.
Waxing cold the love held with wrath,
slipping and sliding down the wrong path.
Eternal life is changing to eternal chaos and decay,
With lawlessness, downloading our lives-they do play.
But the time is coming, we are in the prime,
when the skies will reveal all the due signs.
The earth has faced much turmoil,
its creatures, people and fruit are spoiled.
But, the last events are coming soon,
and the gargoyles coming- it all be in ruin.
The truth of it all, very few breakthrough,
the serpent is about to reap his due.
one fratricide since Cain, envy the asp,
that strings itself to anguish, avarice whose
palsied did grasp.
The sting of the bite as evil doth manifest,
But horses of four colors with a certain quest.
Sadly, people are obsessed, oppressed and possessed
with only a fraction who are actually blessed.
Preachers leading the sheep astray,
with children who don’t even know how to pray.
But our actions are accounted for and seen,
The Book of Life will gather and glean.
