A wave of euphoria swept the Arab lands in 2011. Demonstrations after demonstrations became common across those lands into what became known as The Arab Spring. Nation after nation in the Arab world where shaken to its core.   Governments and thrones were replaced with a religiously-based autocracy we know of as Islam. From Egypt Hosni Mubarak to Libya’s Muammar Ghaddafi each was disposed of and Islam began to spread its influence of power by the Muslim Brotherhood. Its current attention now lies on Syria where its creation first came into effect after World War 1 as a French Mandate, before that; the Ottoman Empire controlled the area around Syria. Fast forward to the present and a civil war is erupting in that country.  You can’t describe it any other way with the syria warMuslim Brotherhood Al-Qaeda backed rebels the Al-Nusra Front vying to wrest the power of control away from Bashar Al Assad. In return Bashar has ruthlessly attacked and killed innocent men, women, and children in the process showing no compassion to keep himself in power. The Al-Qaeda backed rebels have not been innocent by no means in their struggle recently beheading three men on video who supported Bashar and shooting a Catholic priest and killing him with eight bullets, while showing the world what waits for Syria and its people if Bashar is removed. The Al-Nusra Front has gone around specifically targeting Christians in an ethno religious cleansing campaign. Letting them know that they are not welcome.  As the situation keeps deteriorating we look to the outcome of who will be in power and a future prophecy awaiting Syria and its capital Damascus. This prophecy where Damascus will be ruined in one day will be terrible day for Syria that the world will witness. We have to understand that Egypt and Syria are not mentioned in a future broader war that will befall Israel towards the last day. The Bible seems to talk about nations falling before the Gog Magog war and even after that war the coming tribulation upon the world. It seems like there is a smaller regional war that needs to take place before those two latter time events. This regional war is spoken of in Psalms 83, Jeremiah 49:23-27, Ezekiel 35,  Amos 1:3-5, Isaiah 17:1 and Isaiah 17:9. This could explain why some Arab nations are not mentioned in the Ezekiel prophecy or during the Tribulation period. Trying to put everything together can be complicated and the diligent Christian must understand that when everything falls into place is when prophecy becomes reality. bashar

Regardless of the outcome, a dark day will come on Syria and the city of Damascus will cease to exist and its smoke will rise to the sky into heaven “Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” (Isaiah 17:1). Some bible teachers believe that Syria will be destroyed with nuclear weapons which could make sense if it is be destroyed in an hour. Tensions continue to rise in Syria and its borders with Israel, in fact a Syrian envoy over a year ago threaten to destroy Israel nuclear facilities with 20 missiles. The Regime of Bashar has become increasingly paranoid with the civil war in his country and trying to keep his stranglehold on his people  We continue to watch the chaos growing more and more unstable in that region. If Bashar begins to lose control can we see him making a drastic move to unleash chemical weapons on Israel? Joel Rosenberg believes that the Isaiah prophecy is after the seven year tribulation, but to me it makes no sense since Syria is not mentioned in the Gog Magog war in Ezekiel or the Tribulation period.   You would believe that Syria would make a move to destroy their hated rival while salivating at the prospect of wiping Israel off the face of the Earth in the prophecy of Ezekiel. There is no mention of Syria in those two end time events. We continue to watch end time events unfold before our very eyes as God begins to move the pieces of the prophetic chess game in His direction. When the smoke of the ruined city of Damascus is revealed you will witness a ruined heap. Then God will begin a chain of events where He will hook Russia by its mouth and force it to move on Israel. When that happens the prophecy of Isaiah will be fulfilled while the Ezekiel prophecy will commence and the world will witness The Day of The Lord.
