“Destruction of Damascus?”
by A Sadlier   
October 1st, 2007

Isaiah prophesied the destruction of Damascus in the last days, is that event soon to happen?

The world’s most reliable source of information on military matters is, “Jane’s Defense Weekly Magazine.” Jane’s has confirmed the story about a number of Iranian Engineers and Syrian workers who were killed in an explosion in Syria.

Jane’s reported that while these men were loading a chemical warhead into a Scud-C-Missile, an accidental explosion occurred. They were loading the deadly nerve agents VX and Sarin Gas, as well as Mustard Gas. How many others are loaded and ready to go?

The story also broke last week that Israel has attacked and destroyed, in Syria, a Nuclear Bomb or materials for a Nuclear Bomb that Syria had obtained from North Korea.

Israel has a policy called the “Samson Option.” It is named after Samson who sacrificed himself to destroy his enemies. In the event of Israel’s imminent destruction, it would launch its nuclear weapons to destroy its enemies.

It is now obvious that Syria is totally committed to utterly destroy Israel. The capital of Syria is Damascus; the Bible has some ominous words for Damascus.

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

Damascus is the oldest city on earth, though it has been conquered many times, it has never been destroyed, but has remained in tact until this day.

This timing of the destruction of Damascus is revealed in verse 4, at a time when Israel is greatly threatened and is reduced to a state of peril and fear.

Another indication of the timing of this attack is implied in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The fact is that although Syria is now closely allied with Russia and Iran, yet they are not mentioned as being a part of that war, implying that the destruction of Damascus may well be imminent.

It is obvious that Syria with the help of Iran, Russia and North Korea, is preparing an arsenal of biological and possibly nuclear weapons to destroy Israel. I believe the moment Israeli Intelligence is alerted to such an imminent attack they will exercise the “Samson Option”.

Israel has low yield weapons that give a minimum of radio active fallout. These weapons could be used with pinpoint accuracy.

The whole scenario is falling into place. It is amazing how after 2800 years Isaiah’s prophecy seems about to be fulfilled.

A full scale nuclear war by Iran does not fit into the end time Biblical scenario, nevertheless the whole Mid-east crisis is rushing toward some kind of cataclysmic event which would finally set up the world for a Peace Treaty, even though it will be a false peace, by a false Messiah.

Isaiah 17:14 may well be a description of Damascus’ fate. “And behold at eventide trouble, and before the morning, he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us and the lot of them that rob us” (seek to take the Golan Heights).

These are awesome, momentous days in which we live!


Editor’s Note: I had just finished writing this article when the following item came off the news wire:

Israel to Syria: Use Chem weapons & we’ll wipe you off map

Israeli officials vowed to wipe Syria off the map if it is attacked with chemical weapons like one that reportedly exploded in July at a secret Syrian base staffed with Iranian engineers.
