Syria's Days Are Numbered

Damascus, Syria

Syria's Days Are Numbered 

 Author and Teacher Frank DiMora shows you the current news pointing to 
the destruction of Syria and the possible start of the Psalm 83 war 
which will be a major fulfillment of Bible prophecy 

Isaiah 17
 A prophecy against Damascus

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city

    but will become a heap of ruins.
The cities of Aroer will be deserted
    and left to flocks, which will lie down,
    with no one to make them afraid.
The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
    and royal power from Damascus;
the remnant of Aram will be
    like the glory of the Israelites,”
declares the Lord Almighty.
“In that day the glory of Jacob will fade;

    the fat of his body will waste away.
It will be as when reapers harvest the standing grain,
    gathering the grain in their arms—
as when someone gleans heads of grain
    in the Valley of Rephaim.
Yet some gleanings will remain,
    as when an olive tree is beaten,
leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches,
    four or five on the fruitful boughs,”
declares the Lord, the God of Israel.
In that day people will look to their Maker

    and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel.
They will not look to the altars,
    the work of their hands,
and they will have no regard for the Asherah poles[a]
    and the incense altars their fingers have made.
In that day their strong cities, which they left because of the Israelites, will be like places abandoned to thickets and undergrowth. And all will be desolation.
You have forgotten God your Savior;

    you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress.
Therefore, though you set out the finest plants
    and plant imported vines,
though on the day you set them out, you make them grow,
    and on the morning when you plant them, you bring them to bud,
yet the harvest will be as nothing
    in the day of disease and incurable pain.
Woe to the many nations that rage

    they rage like the raging sea!
Woe to the peoples who roar
    they roar like the roaring of great waters!
Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters,
    when he rebukes them they flee far away,
driven before the wind like chaff on the hills,
    like tumbleweed before a gale.
In the evening, sudden terror!
    Before the morning, they are gone!
This is the portion of those who loot us,
    the lot of those who plunder us.

Psalm 27: 1-6

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; 
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
 Whom shall I dread? 
When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, 
My adversaries and my enemies, 
they stumbled and fell. 
Though a host encamp against me, 
My heart will not fear; 
Though war arise against me, 
In spite of this I shall be confident. 
One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: 
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, 
To behold the beauty of the LORD 
And to meditate in His temple. 
For in the day of trouble 
He will conceal me in His tabernacle; 
In the secret place of His tent 
He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. 
And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
 And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
 I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. . .
