Sound Alarms Continue Down Dark Path Very Bad
Did President Trump sound the alarms? President Donald Trump did what he said he would do. Trump said bomb Syria for its participation in gassing its own civilians. Therefore, the president made it very clear what he thought of Russian President Vladimir Putin by his tweet. Trump tweeted: “President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing animal Assad. Big price to pay.” In announcing the missile response, Trump said, “Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with the civilized nations as a force for stability and peace.” Interesting that many of the prophetic players on the world stage are gathered in Syria where the prophet Isaiah wrote, “Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” Have you sounded the alarms yet?
Turkey and Iran are there in Syria. Turkey has been, at least publicly, supporting the removal of dictator-president Bashar Assad. Iran is supporting Assad because Syria is essentially a vassal state of Iran. They have a mutual defense pact. Russia, Turkey and Iran recently met to develop a peace plan, not only for Syria, but for all of the Middle East. Russia supports Assad and Iran in this conflict. But Turkey, Russia and Iran appear to be working together more than just in the public relations/propaganda world. The entire conflict arose out of the immediate past US “president’s” support for Arab Spring uprisings where the US supported various terrorist groups connected with al Qaeda to overthrow Assad. Have you sounded the alarm yet?
There has been a lot of talk that this is the time that perhaps Isaiah’s prophecy will be fulfilled. Damascus, after all, is hardly a city nowadays. It is maintaining a heartbeat after years of civil war. For example, they have been fighting various al Qaeda terrorist groups, Hezbollah from Iran, Russian interests, American interests, Turkey, the Islamic State, and, of course the Assad government. Therefore, the ingredients are there for the total destruction of Damascus. Damascus may be devastated by this massive gathering of many forces. However, it is not the total destruction prophesied by Isaiah. As with most prophecy, it often appears to be fulfilled. Types and shadows, layers, and signs still have to occur before it is ultimately fulfilled.
The context of Isaiah 17 is judgment on nations that come against Israel. For example, Assyria in Chapter 9 and Palestina, Moab, Ethiopia, Egypt, Shebna, and Tyre through Chapter 24 are some of the nations. The phrase “In/At that day” is mentioned no less than four times in this short chapter of 14 verses. This phrase is an indicator for the Day of the Lord, meaning when the Lord returns to judge the nations that came against Israel. Verse 7 says, “At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.” Verse 11 speaks that the harvest shall be a day of grief and of desperate sorrow. Context is key. It’s dangerous to take just one verse and develop a scenario or doctrine around it. In Syria, we are seeing prophetic movement. As a result, we will know when God fulfills the prophecy. It will be clear.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
In conclusion, who do you choose to serve? You do know you cannot serve both GOD and mammon. For one you will love and the other you will hate. You choice but that choice only determines your eternity location. God is still and always will be The Omega Judge.
