Old Damascus neighborhood must be destroyed

Old Damascus neighborhood must be destroyed

The city of my praise

By Craig C. White

Most Christians are familiar with the bible verse that says that Damascus will become a ruinous heap. But the Bible defines a specific Damascus neighborhood that must be destroyed.

Isaiah 17:1-2 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Has Damascus already become a ruinous heap? Some outlying neighborhoods have. But the central core of Damascus remains relatively intact. Does this satisfy bible prophecy? Not yet. Jeremiah chapter 49 identifies the neighborhood of Old Damascus with its Old buildings and ancient renown.

Jeremiah 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!

Two different Hebrew words for city are used in the verse above. The city of praise is a fortified city that has been celebrated in song. When God says “how is the city not left” he could be communicating his astonishment that even after a terrible assault on Damascus, the city has still not surrendered. When God calls Damascus “the city of my joy!” he is specifically saying that he delights in the cities old buildings. So we are looking for the destruction of the old part of the city. The neighborhood of Old Damascus is the seat of Syria’s government as well as its center of ancient history. Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city on earth. It was founded by the Aramaeans over four thousand years ago, and was inhabited two thousand years before that. Damascus is a living depiction of human history.

After you view this video you will understand that the Bible does not require Damascus to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb as so many bible prophecy buffs teach.

Kir is Kerak – Damascus refugees will soon flee to Kerak, Jordan!

Damascus refugees will soon flee to Kerak, Jordan!

By Craig C. White

The Prophet Amos condemned Damascus. He said that God would send an army against Damascus and that the Syrian people would become refugees in Jordan. This prophecy was fulfilled when Tiglath-pileser the Assyrian king conquered Damascus (734 B.C.) and carried the Syrian (Aramean) captives away to Kir (mountainous region in western Jordan). However, like many bible prophecies this may also refer to a current event. Today the city of Kir in Jordan is called Kerak. Kerak is in south western Jordan east of the Dead Sea. It has a population of about 20,000. Not including the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees already there.The citizens of Kerak are poor and mostly Christian. By the way Kerak is in the Moab region of Jordan and is very likely where the Judean refugees will flee during Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation!

There are about 600,000 Syrian refugees in western Jordan today. This is further evidence that the destruction of Damascus as described in the bible is eminent. It is also evidence that the God of Israel is the one true God and that we all had better heed his word and we had also better humble ourselves before him while there is still time! In Amos 1:5 the plain of Aven is a valley in the northeast part of Lebanon near the Syrian border. Today it is called the Bekaa valley. It has been suggested that Saddam Hussein hid WMD’s here before the invasion of Iraq.

Amo 1:3-5 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron: 4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad. 5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.

God used the terminology to send a fire to mean that the Assyrian army would besiege the city. Just as the ancient Assyrians assaulted the city in 734 BC, I think that the Turkish army will do likewise soon. The palaces of Benhadad refer to the ancient thrones of Syrian Kings in Damascus. Like the ancient invasion, this future invasion will also destroy Damascus’ seat of government in the old part of Damascus.

Tens of thousands of Syrians have already taken refuge in Kir (or Kerak) in western Jordan. Many more will join them as Damascus flees. Bible prophecies are coming true. There is a terrible time of Satan’s anger and of God’s judgement coming on all of the world. It is High Time to surrender your soul into God’s care.

Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 also predict the destruction of Damascus, Syria. They both offer details that can be observed today!

Turkey may have begun entering Syria

Turkey may have begun entering Syria

Jarablus isn’t in Jeremiah

By Craig C. White

Jeremiah 49:23-27 predicts an Invasion into northwestern Syria coming from the Turkish border. It is being reported today that the Turkish Army has entered Syria. Jeremiah’s prophecy hasn’t begun yet. According to Jeremiah first Hamah and Tell Rifaat (or Arpad) hear about a coming invasion. The Turkish Army has been amassed along the Syrian border near Azaz and Tell Rifaat for a couple of years now. The Turkish tanks and troops that are now pouring into Syria at Jarablus just to the west of the Euphrates River are not necessarily Turks. They are foreign Sunni Al-Qaeda rebels from places like Libya and Sudan. These rebels are supported and directed by Turkey. Even though this batch of rebels have just now entered Syria through Turkey, they are already being labeled as belonging to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) by the media. The Free Syrian Army is not Syrian. It consists of foreign Sunni Al-Qaeda jihadists from Libya and elsewhere. These are the people who are described as moderate Muslims by the news media. That is a big fat lie.

This influx of rebels just to the west of the Euphrates seems to be part of the battle plan that finally allows the Turkish Army to enter Syria at the Azaz corridor. Be alert to Turkish Army advances at Hamah and also the Tell Rifaat area. Tell Rifaat is just south of Azaz. The news has been referring to that area as the Azaz corridor. It is the area between the Turkish border and Aleppo. This is the area that Jeremiah 49:23 identifies as Arpad.

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

Stay alert! It looks like this is the beginning of Jeremiah’s prophecy! The Turkish Army will enter Syria at Hamah and Arpad (or Tell-Rifaat) then Damascus will be destroyed! It is High Time to Awake.

The Next Great World Headline!

Turkey Invades Syria!

By Craig C. White

The destruction of Damascus, Syria is foretold in Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, and Amos 1. Today Syria is at war. Syria is fighting for its sovereignty. This is not simply a civil war. This is a struggle to overthrow the Syrian government from the outside. World powers find Syria such an essential prize that they have taken sides. Most outside support has gone to the anti-Syria forces. The US has given Turkey Patriot Missiles and troops. The US has also given the rebels food. funding, weapons, and training. The rebels fighting in Syria have received advanced weapons. This is sure to escalate the violence.

Syria is now in its fifth year of fighting. It seems that they are no nearer to a conclusion. From a biblical perspective I expect the worse to happen in Syria. I expect Syria to be attacked by a formidable foreign power and then the ruinous destruction of Damascus.

Waiting for these events is nerve racking. I am impatient but that counts for very little. World powers are also impatient. They are calling for military action against Damascus. I think that they will strike Syria when they see a possibility that they might lose their prize. If it looks like the current Syrian regime is getting the upper hand then the world will act swiftly and harshly.

Ezekiel 38 tells us about an invasion into Israel led by Turkey. Turkey leads Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. All of these nations are now fighting in Syria. In 734 BC the Assyrian King Tiglath-pileser led an invasion into Syria and then turned south to invade Israel. According to Old Testament prophets this ancient invasion is a harbinger to a similar future invasion. This future invasion is led by the Antichrist.

I expect the headlines to soon read “Turkey invades Syria”. That is terrible news. Even worse news is that shortly after Turkey invades Syria and destroys Damascus I expect the headlines to read “Turkey leads invasion into Israel!

These are the major events that usher in the end of the Church age and the beginning of the time of Israel’s sorrow.

Extra Extra! Turkey invades Syria! It is High Time to Awake!
