Isaiah 17: Pinpointing the Timing of Damascus’s Destruction

Isaiah 17 is a chapter that contains a prophecy about the total destruction of the city of Damascus and several other Mideast locations. Damascus is considered one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, if not the oldest, so the prophecy appears to be unfulfilled as of the time of this writing. Many people believe the events of Isaiah 17 will be some of the next prophetic events to occur. Some speculate that Damascus will be nuked by Israel when the events of Isaiah 17 transpire. Given the ongoing turmoil within Syria and the ongoing tension between Israel and Syria, it would be useful to examine when the events of Isaiah 17 might be fulfilled.

  • I will attempt to pinpoint the general timeframe when the events of Isaiah 17 will transpire in this article.

Isaiah 17 opens with the words “the burden of Damascus”, which indicates that Damascus is the subject of a troublesome prophecy. The troublesome nature of the prophecy is immediately revealed with verse 1 describing the city of Damascus as "a ruinous heap". In addition, Aroer (a city located in modern day Jordan) and Ephraim (northern Israel) are also described as desolate and forsaken. Other places in Syria will likely be impacted as well as Isaiah mentions “the remnant of Syria”.

  • Isa 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
  • Isa 17:2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
  • Isa 17:3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.

Before continuing it should be noted that some believe that Isaiah 17 has application to the eighth century B.C. when the Assyrian army attacked Syria and northern Israel. However, verse 1 describes Damascus being desolated to the extent that it is “taken away from being a city”. This level of desolation does not appear to have occurred yet, so perhaps Isaiah 17 is a chapter with multiple applications with its ultimate fulfillment in the future.

The cause(s) of Damascus’s desolation is not explicitly stated in Isaiah 17:1-3, but Jeremiah 49:23-27, a passage that potentially has end time implications, suggests that Damascus may be target of a military invasion.

  • Jer 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.
  • Jer 49:24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.
  • Jer 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!
  • Jer 49:26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts.
  • Jer 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

Isaiah 17:4-6
Isaiah 17:4-6 appears to provide the circumstances surrounding the general timeframe when Damascus will become a ruinous heap.

  • The connection between Isaiah 17:1-3 and Isaiah 17:4 onward is established in Isaiah 17:3-4. The glory of Damascus and the glory of the remnant of Syria at that time are compared to the glory of the children of Israel in verse 3 while verse 4 expands on the glory of Jacob/Israel at that time. “(3) The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. (4) And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean”.

The phrase “in that day” appears in Isaiah 17:4, which in an end time context refers to the Day of the Lord. The appearance of this phrase suggests the destruction of Damascus will likely occur around the approximate time of the Day of the Lord. Furthermore, Isaiah 17:4-6 indicates that the “glory of Jacob” will be greatly diminished to a small remnant, which is indicative that the events of Isaiah 17 will occur in the latter portion of the end times when Jacob’s population will indeed be greatly diminished.

  • Isa 17:4 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
  • Isa 17:5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
  • Isa 17:6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel.

The widespread desolation and large decline in the population of Israel at that future time period may be referenced in Isaiah 6:9-13. Isaiah 6:9-13 describes a time when the land of Israel will be greatly desolated and will only have a small population remaining, and this time period will coincide with the end of the spiritual blindness impacting (a portion) of Israel.


  • Isa 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
  • Isa 6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
  • Isa 6:11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
  • Isa 6:12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
  • Isa 6:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

The end of spiritual blindness impacting (a portion of) Israel will coincide with the coming of the Lord and the arrival of the fullness of the Gentiles according to Romans 11:25-26, Isaiah 35:4-5, and Isaiah 42:13-16. The following table displays the similarities between these passages and Isaiah 6:9-13. The highlighted colors cover the following details:

  • Green: The spiritual blindness that is impacting (a portion of) Israel
  • Yellow: The conditions surrounding the lifting of the spiritual blindness
  • Teal: The coming of the Lord at the time when the spiritual blindness impacting (a portion of) Israel will end

Isa 6:9  And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
Isa 6:10  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
Isa 6:11  Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
Isa 6:12  And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
Isa 6:13  But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Rom 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Isa 35:4  Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
Isa 35:5  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

Isa 42:13  The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
Isa 42:14  I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.
Isa 42:15  I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
Isa 42:16  And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

Consequently, if Isaiah 6:9-13 is indeed related to Isaiah 17:4-6 it would mean that the events of Isaiah 17 may occur near the coming of the Lord and the end of the fullness of the Gentiles. The following table displays key parts of both passages, and each respective passage’s reference to a small remnant remaining is highlighted.

Isa 6:11  Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
Isa 6:12  And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
Isa 6:13  But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
Isa 17:4  And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
Isa 17:5  And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
Isa 17:6  Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel.

Isaiah 17:7-8
Isaiah 17:7-8 may cover the result that the desolation has on the people of the region at that time. The punishment may bring people to look to the Lord instead of false idols.

  • Isa 17:7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
  • Isa 17:8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.

This change in people’s regard for the Lord is consistent with what will happen around the time when the spiritual blindness impacting (a portion of Israel) is lifted (Isaiah 29:18-19). This again suggests that the events of Isaiah 17 will take place in the latter portion of the end times. Isaiah 10:20-22, a passage which may have end times implications given the phrase “shall no more again” in verse 20, describes the remnant of Israel as those who will depend on the Lord.

  • Isa 10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
  • Isa 10:21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
  • Isa 10:22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.

The term “remnant of Israel” again suggests that the conditions of Isaiah 17:7 and Isaiah 17 in general will take place in the latter portion of the end times after a great decline in the population of Israel.

Isaiah 17:9-11
Isaiah 17:9-11 may cover much of why there will be so much desolation in the future. The passage explains that the widespread desolation is part of the chastisement for the forsaking the Lord.

  • Isa 17:9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
  • Isa 17:10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
  • Isa 17:11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.

Does Isaiah 17:9 Say Israel Destroys Damascus?
As an aside, some people cite Isaiah 17:9 as evidence that Israel will be responsible for causing the destruction of Damascus. However, it is not completely clear which forsaken, strong cities Isaiah 17:9 is referring to. For instance, Keil and Delitzsch believe Isaiah 17:9 is a more detail restatement of Isaiah 17:3 in describing Ephraim’s strong cities:

The statement in Isaiah 17:3, "The fortress of Ephraim is abolished," is repeated in Isaiah 17:9 in a more descriptive manner. The fate of the strongly fortified cities of Ephraim would be the same as that of the old Canaanitish castles, which were still to be discerned in their antiquated remains, either in the depths of forests or high up on the mountains[1]

The following table compares Isaiah 17:3 with Isaiah 17:9.

Isa 17:3  The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.
Isa 17:9  In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.

Regardless of the location of the cities, some Bible commentators like John Gill [2] believe that Isaiah 17:9 is only comparing the forsakenness of the cities at the time of the prophecy’s fulfillment to the cities the Canaanites abandoned when the Israelites came to the land (and not saying that Israel is responsible for the forsakenness of the cities at that time).

In sum, the argument that Isaiah 17:9 is evidence that Israel will be responsible for causing the destruction of Damascus depends on the assumption that the strong cities in Isaiah 17:9 belong to Syria being true and on the assumption that Israel is responsible for making the cities desolate at the time of the prophecy’s fulfillment being true. Both assumptions can be disputed.

Isaiah 17:12-14
Isaiah 17:12-14 shifts the focus to the demise of a group of nations who are likely the attackers that desolate Damascus, northern Israel, and other places. Some believe that the passage refers to Assyria back in the eighth century B.C. However, the warning in Isaiah 17:12-14 is directed towards several nations instead of just one. The Lord will rebuke the attacking nations and will rout them according to Isaiah 17:13.

  • Isa 17:12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
  • Isa 17:13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
  • Isa 17:14 And behold at eveningtide 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.

The passage above is very similar to Isaiah 29:5-7, a passage that I believe has end time significance, namely the end time siege of Jerusalem. The highlighted colors cover the following similarities:

  • Yellow: Like Isaiah 17, Isaiah 29 describes multiple nations attacking.
  • Green: Like Isaiah 17, Isaiah 29 mentions that the Lord will intervene to deal with the nations.
  • Teal: Like Isaiah 17, Isaiah 29 depicts the defeated nations as chaff that is blown away by wind.

The parallels between the two passages mentioned above are shown in the following table.

Isa 17:12  Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
Isa 17:13  The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
Isa 17:14  And behold at eveningtide 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.
Isa 29:5  Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
Isa 29:6  Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
Isa 29:7  And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

Isaiah 17:13 also parallels Isaiah 33:10-13, a passage from a chapter that primarily deals with the Assyrian threat to Jerusalem but potentially could be another chapter with multiple fulfillments.

Isa 17:13  The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
Isa 33:10  Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
Isa 33:11  Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.
Isa 33:12  And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
Isa 33:13  Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might.

The repelling of the attacking nations by the Lord also compares to Joel 2:20. The Lord promises in Joel 2:20 that He will drive away and defeat the northern army that will attack places like Jerusalem.

Isa 17:13  The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
Joe 2:19  Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
Joe 2:20  But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.

The parallels between Isaiah 17:12-14, Joel 2:20, Isaiah 29:5-7, and Isaiah 33:10-13 suggest that the demise of the attacking nations will come during the end time siege of Jerusalem when the Lord intervenes. Given this, we can presume that the desolation of Damascus and northern Israel will come just prior to the end time siege of Jerusalem.

Nighttime Defeat?
Interestingly, Isaiah 17:14 suggests that the attackers will be defeated during the night.

  • Isa 17:14 And behold at eveningtide 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.

The statement harkens to Isaiah 37:35-37, which is a passage that records the angel of the Lord’s overnight defeat of Sennacherib’s Assyrian army.

  • Isa 37:35 For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
  • Isa 37:36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
  • Isa 37:37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

Isaiah 17:14 may be another case where a prophetic event occurs multiple times in a similar manner. The first occurrence was the overnight defeat of the Assyrian army. The end time occurrence may involve the overnight defeat of the nations that attack Jerusalem and other places like Damascus and northern Israel.

  • Interestingly, Isaiah 29:7 compares the sudden demise of the nations that besiege Jerusalem (Ariel) to a nighttime dream. This analogy harkens back to Isaiah 17:14’s suggestion that the attackers will be wiped out during the night.

Isa 17:14  And behold at eveningtide 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.
Isa 29:7  And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

My Closing Thoughts on Isaiah 17’s Fulfillment
I believe the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 will not come prior to the start of the end times or even at the start of the end times. I believe the fulfillment of Isaiah 17, particularly the destruction of Damascus, will come during the latter portion of the end times near the start of the end time siege of Jerusalem, the coming of the Lord, and the arrival of the fullness of the gentiles. The participants of the siege will likely travel through Syria and northern Israel and leave a wake of destruction as they advance to besiege Jerusalem. Joel 2:2-3 may provide a fitting description of how this military force will leave a wake of destruction behind as it approaches Jerusalem.

  • Joe 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
  • Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The question that arises from this conclusion is: "What will motivate the military forces to come down to destroy Damascus and other Syrian cities on their way to Israel?" Syria presumably will be a part of the Antichrist’s empire, so the military forces that desolate Syria presumably will not be affiliated with Antichrist or the kings he will work with. What will motivate a significant military force comprised of troops from many nations to attack a presumed ally of Antichrist (Syria) on their way to Israel?

  • I am currently developing a theory that attempts to explain which nations comprise this military force and why they will attack. I hope to share it in detail when it’s ready to be presented...

Wayne very good analysis however you need to think outside the box. It is not nations of men as such that attack Israel and Syria God describes them as a supernatural army an army which he directs and also ultimately destroys. It is an army unlike anything we have ever seen they climb up walls with ease they are not easily killed. When God refers to the land of the north that does not refer to Russia or any other nation on the earth. God opens up the underworld which some might find hard to believe or grasp the reality of but nevertheless this is exactly what He says throughout Scripture. Keep up the good work excellent blog and great insights on prophecy.
God Bless

I understand that some may see the forces as non-human but I think they're human at this point. There's a lot of ideas that I've been developing with regards to this army which I haven't shared yet.

word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

the writing of Atmak is אתמך
the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

Isaiah 42:1

God says

“Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

God mentioning about the coming of His servant

Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

He is none other than

Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - Prophet Muhammad s.a.w

I just learned of your site and love it! I too have asking these same questions and came to the conclusion Damascus would be destroyed in the Day of the Lord. A thought, is it possible when you refer to the strongholds of Ephraim and of northern Israel being devastated could this also be a reference to modern day Golan Heights? Also Mt Hermon is there but i recalled Deuteronomy in what this land contained the cities etc. Deut. 4:44 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel:

45 these are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, when they came forth out of Egypt,

46 beyond the Jordan, in the valley over against Beth-peor, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, when they came forth out of Egypt.

47 And they took his land in possession, and the land of Og king of Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan toward the sunrising;

48 from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, even unto mount Sion (the same is Hermon),

49 and all the Arabah beyond the Jordan eastward, even unto the sea of the Arabah, under the slopes of Pisgah.

Prophecy Proof Insights said...

I could see the Golan Heights as a place that could be desolated at that time. The trail of destruction will be probably very large as the troops advance southward to lay siege against Jerusalem.

Laura Halfpenny said...

it is also near the valley of Megiddo which is the west of Galilee. It all ends up in the final battle but it makes sense that as the nations rushing in like might waters and in so many references to the destruction coming from the north through the Mtns of Israel, that whole region is very mountainous and then you have the plain of Megiddo. Gets real interesting when thinking the day of the Lord and all this destruction of the enemy during the night ... to wake the next morning and see your enemies in a huge heap over the plain will be astounding.

Prophecy Proof Insights said...

I am strongly considering the possibility that this military campaign in Isaiah 17 is different than the one that will take place in Megiddo even though the destruction of the forces of Isaiah 17 and the destruction of the forces that assemble in Meggido may take place in the Day of the Lord.

Laura Halfpenny said...

I have been wondering if Daniel 12:12 where it says blessed is he who waits until 1335 days if that time between 1290 and 1335 is the Day of the Lord. The fact that Damascus is demolished overnight and in other passages there is evidence that the whole coastlines are devastated as in Tyre and into Lebanon etc. Zechariah 9, Amos 1 etc... all the enemies will be humbled with only remnants remaining. Most all these judgments are by fire too.

Prophecy Proof Insights said...

I used to try to define the Day of the Lord in terms of time, but I think it's now better to define the Day of the Lord in terms of the events that are associated with it. There are references to the Day of the Lord as a time of judgment, but then there are references to "that day" as a time of tranquility (i.e. Zechariah 14). My current view on the Day of the Lord (which I haven't put on this blog yet) is that it starts on the 1260th day after the abomination of desolation and extends into the Millennium. The start of the Day of the Lord would include the annihilation of the military forces that attacked Damascus and later besiege Jerusalem. The Armageddon portion of the Day of the Lord would come at 1290 days after the abomination of desolation. Then the Day of the Lord would extend beyond into the Millennium. I think the Millennium starts around 1335 days after the abomination of desolation.

Wayne,
now I wonder whether you think or not that the current situation in Syria may be an answer to your question "What will motivate a significant military force comprised of troops
from many nations to attack a presumed ally of Antichrist (Syria) on
their way to Israel?"
Chemical weapons is a serious issue and I think the USA probably will not ignore this any more. It's not hard to imagine that something may go wrong and soon it will escalate to a much larger conflict than the leaders of the USA now imagine.

I think this conflict in Syria is a very dangerous moment and things may rapidly accelerate from now on...

Chris said...

...and what I mean by saying that it's a "very dangerous moment" is that we don't really know yet what others (outside the Western world) will react to a U.S. agression in the Middle East. What will Russia, Iran, China, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and most importantly, Israel do? Actually we cannot even be sure what military answer Syria is capable of if attacked. I am only sure about my lukewarm Europe. We will speak like an ally but feel like an enemy. Soon we will hate the USA for whatever they do and blame them for the consequences of their actions, whatever they will be. And we will do nothing, as we always do.

Given the circumstances, it might be time for an article about the Syria situation.

Thanks, I would really appreciate it!

New article on the Syria situation and Isaiah 17 posted here: http://prophecyproof.blogspot.com/2013/09/why-isaiah-17-unlikely-will-be.html

Adam Maarschalk said...

I believe that current events in Syria have nothing to do with Isaiah 17 (or Isaiah 7-8 and Amos 1). Isaiah and Amos were contemporary prophets, and both predicted that Syria and Israel would soon be destroyed by the same opponent, Assyria. II Kings 16 shows in detail that their prophecies were fulfilled, and this is validated by historical records as outlined in this article:

http://kloposmasm.com/2013/09/08/the-bible-does-not-teach-that-damascus-syria-is-about-to-be-destroyed-2/

One of the biggest keys pointing to the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 in Isaiah's own time period is the phrase "in that day" in verse 4. Isaiah clearly prophesied that Damascus and Syria would fall in the same "day" that Israel would fall. And we know that Israel (the northern kingdom) fell in 722 B.C.

Now, consider the chemical weapon their country used on its own people of Damascus. Great sadness and grief (desolation) and horrific event that fell silent very quickly and from our sight.
