Okay, so it hasn’t happened yet, but it will. The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap”. Isaiah 17:1.

Damascus will be destroyed. You can take that to the bank. The capital of Syria is the oldest continuously inhabited capital in the world. God says it will become a heap of ruins. It has never been destroyed in all the wars of history. Jerusalem has been destroyed at least eleven times.
We have seen the Psalm 83 prophecy building for several years now. It makes sense that the Isaiah 17 prophecy would be part of that war. Just today, the Jerusalem Post reported that 49 died in protests in Syria. YNet News later reported those killed today by the government passed 70. Fox News is also reporting the violence.
This may be the most important news story of the month. While most eyes are on Libya, the growing crisis in Syria has more direct significance to prophecy. CNN reported that Jordan also continues to experience growing anti-government demonstrations spurred on by the Muslim Brotherhood in the name of Palestinians.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will speak to a joint session of Congress next month. His pivotal speech will set the tone for Israel’s response to world pressure (Los Angeles Times) for the UN to unilaterally declare an independent state of Palestine.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
Jesus is alive, the grave is empty. Death has lost its sting. Hallelujah!
