2-11-2003 .. Damascus Will Cease To Exist Written by Angela Watkins 2-11-2003 . [Thinkers, -- This is remarkable thinking. Angela emphatically states that she is not a prophet, but only brings out what the Scripture says, what is there within it; and sticks to the Scripture. I find myself fascinated by her points. -- Ellis] THE BIBLICAL TRUTH ACCORDING TO THE HOLY SCRIPTURES: And again I am jumping ahead of some of my studies but it will be okay. IMPORTANT: I am not predicting when but I am teaching according to the Holy Scriptures. There are some tuff days ahead... Isaiah 17:1-14 and Jeremiah 49:23-27 - will Damascus cease to exist in the end times? ISAIAH 17:1-14 verses 1 - 3 The burden of Damascus, Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 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. OTHER NATIONS - NOTICES OF GENTILE NATIONS - PROPHETIC & DENUNCIATORY "WARNING" verses 4-6, 9-11 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of this flesh wax lean. 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. Yet gleaming grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bought, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel. 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. 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: In that 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. TILLING OF GROUND - EMPLOYMENT - SORROWFUL HARVEST verse 7 ...At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. OBEYING GOD - DUTY TO GOD - WAITING ON GOD verse 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. IDOLATRY - GROVE WORSHIP FORBIDDEN verses 12, 13, 14 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! 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. 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. OTHER NATIONS -- ENEMIES OF ISRAEL JEREMIAH 49:23-27 verses 23 - 27 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. 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. How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy! 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. And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Ben-hadad.
