Is Damascus On The Brink Of Being Destroyed?
Could it be possible that World War 3 has already begun or is there another war approaching? There are many wars that have taken place, but a world war involves many large nations in all different parts of the world (per google).
Just exactly how many nations are involved in war today? Well, there is Russia, Syria, Iran, Israel, and now France who is at war against ISIS, ISIL, IS (Islamic State), and any terrorist group. China is preparing for war, and the United States is poking at China. So, have we begun WW3, well the answer is no.
We do not have large nations coming against one another, as of yet. World War 3 is on the horizon for the future as God begins to move toward the Tribulation. However there is another war that is being laid out, and this war involves Damascus. We do not know when the destruction of Damascus will take place, but you can definitely see the foundation being laid out.
Most people believe that this war is leading up to the Gog & Magog War . Is this true, yes, everything is coming together slowly to prepare for this war as well. However, we do not know at this time when this war will be completely set. More time needs to take place. If you want to know more about Gog & Magog War visit our page here. Or read Joel C. Rosenberg’s articles below:
“What is the War of Gog & Magog?”
Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four
Do you believe this war will stop at anytime? No, we do not believe these wars will stop but will only progress. As we watch the world being engulfed in violence we can clearly see scripture setting up the stage for future events to take place like the destruction of Damascus and much more. Let’s begin with what is happening right now, then we will show you how this lines up with scripture.
What is Russia's Part?
Russia is part of the Gog & Magog war that will happen during the Tribulation period. The Rapture will have already taken place when this war is full blown. Russia is preparing to be the top leader in the world, and in the war of Gog & Magog, Russia is the top nation with a top ruler that will move against Israel. Where is Russia now?
On 30 September, Russia’s parliament approved a request by President Vladimir Putin to launch air strikes in Syria. Within hours, the country’s first intervention in the Middle East in decades began. Russia quickly went into action to fight and destroy jihadist group, Islamic State (IS), which controlled large parts of Syria. Russia is creeping in the back door towards Israel’s and the United States. Russia is coming through the back door of Israel by occupying the Mediterranean Sea during the Syrian Civil War. Israel has located gas off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and how convenient that Russia is there. Russia is also gallantly making there way into the Golan Heights area exactly where the oil is located. They are creeping at the back door of the U.S. by building their largest military base 320 miles from Point Hope, Alaska.
Russia also took back Crimea while the world voiced disapproval.
Russia is wanting to take back Ukraine. They will do this the easy way, or if this is not accomplished then another way will be established. The reason Russia wants Ukraine back is Putin wants to re-establish the power of the Soviet Union before the Soviet Union was dissolved. Russia is heavily invested in Ukraine and Ukraine was once part of the Soviet Union. Why Ukraine Is Such A Big Deal For Russia.
What does Russia want from all of this, read the article
What is Syria's Part?
The Syrian Civil War started in 2011, it wasn’t until September 30, 2015 that another nation, Russia, came to the aid of President Assad. Isis is occupying areas of Syria and because of this Syria is being destroyed from within. In scripture it talks about Damascus being destroyed. The capital of Syria is Damascus, and look at all the war taking place in this region.
So what does the bible say about this?

Other Countries Involved In War or Rumors Of War?
We have other countries involved in this war as well, we have Iran who is on the path to destroy Israel and America. The Iran Nuclear Deal is a joke, and they have no intentions of following this deal. So what was the Nuclear Deal all about?
Since we are all being lied to the only thing we do know is what it wasn’t about, it wasn’t about peace. Since the approval of this deal and the release of Iran from sanctions, war has only increased. Isis has become strong and capable enough to shoot down planes and carry out effective terrorists attacks in France and other places. Iranian officials see the Nuclear Deal as a sign of weakness and their talk and behavior is reflecting that.

France is the new player in the war against the Islamic State after their country was attacked. France is now bombing in Syria.
China is preparing for war, but they are not fully engaged in any war right now. The United States keeps approaching the China Seas due to the man made island they are using for warplanes. The U.S. is more concerned about China then the Terrorist groups happening around the world, and they are threatening to attack the U.S. The only thing Obama is doing is defending the Muslims and focused on China. How interesting this is.
Towards the bottom of this article “The US is challenging China’s claim to the islands by sending its warships and warplanes through the space Beijing insists is under its sovereignty. Washington says it has every right to sail and fly through international waters and airspace. China says it considers such actions provocative.”
What is America's Part?
Obama was in no hurry to fight against ISIS. It took Russia to step up and do something about them. So why is Obama not interested in protecting our country. America is also going after China, why? We do not know the real reason why Obama is going after China.

So just exactly what is the United States doing?
What Does The Bible Say
The next war looks like it could be Damascus. In scripture it says “Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins.” Currently today, Damascus is still a city. However lots of military action is happening in the capital of Syria, and they are systematically warring in that region still. You have Russia, France, Syria, and Israel coming against the Terrorist groups in the country of Syria. They are mostly located in Damascus, and destroying everything in their path.
Isaiah 17 Living Bible (TLB) 17 This is God’s message to Damascus, capital of Syria: Look, Damascus is gone! It is no longer a city—it has become a heap of ruins!
2 The cities of Aroer are deserted. Sheep pasture there, lying quiet and unafraid, with no one to chase them away.
3 The strength of Israel and the power of Damascus will end, and the remnant of Syria shall be destroyed. For as Israel’s glory departed, so theirs, too, will disappear, declares the Lord Almighty.
4 Yes, the glory of Israel will be very dim when poverty stalks the land.
5 Israel will be as abandoned as the harvested grain fields in the valley of Rephaim.
6 Oh, a very few of her people will be left, just as a few stray olives are left on the trees when the harvest is ended, two or three in the highest branches, four or five out on the tips of the limbs. That is how it will be in Damascus and Israel—stripped bare of people except for a few of the poor who remain.
7 Then at last they will think of God their Creator and have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
8 They will no longer ask their idols for help in that day, neither will they worship what their hands have made! They will no longer have respect for the images of Ashtaroth and the sun idols.
9 Their largest cities will be as deserted as the distant wooded hills and mountaintops and become like the abandoned cities of the Amorites, deserted when the Israelites approached (so long ago).
10 Why? Because you have turned from the God who can save you—the Rock who can hide you; therefore, even though you plant a wonderful, rare crop of greatest value,
11 and though it grows so well that it will blossom on the very morning that you plant it, yet you will never harvest it—your only harvest will be a pile of grief and incurable pain.
12 Look, see the armies thundering toward God’s land.
13 But though they roar like breakers rolling upon a beach, God will silence them. They will flee, scattered like chaff by the wind, like whirling dust before a storm.
14 In the evening Israel waits in terror, but by dawn her enemies are dead. This is the just reward of those who plunder and destroy the people of God.
Everyone in this Syrian war has an agenda. Russia is looking to take Israel’s energy resources and be re-established as a world power. Iran is looking to kill Sunnis, this is a religious war. ISIS is looking to kill Shiites and all who disagree with them, this is a religious war. France is looking to protect their country. China is looking for power and dominance. America is pretending to do something but in reality is doing nothing to protect its people. Israel is looking to survive and protect its land.
All of this is immaterial because God is working His plan. He will allow Damascus to be totally destroyed. He will come against Syria and all those who come against God’s people. His purpose is for people to remember Him, turn from their idolatry, and turn to God.
