Isaiah 17:1 fulfillment coming near?

This is worrisome... Israel National News reports,

Report: New Activity at Syrian Chemical Weapon Sites
There are signs of new activity at Syrian chemical weapons sites, Western intelligence officials said, according to The New York Times.
"There are signs of new activity at Syrian chemical weapons sites, Western intelligence officials said, according to The New York Times. The report, published Saturday, quoted a U.S. intelligence official as saying the regime of President Bashar al-Assad is “doing some things that suggest they intend to use the weapons. “It's not just moving stuff around,” he explained. “These are a different kind of activities.”

"It is possible Syrian Army forces are preparing to use the weapons in a last-ditch effort to save the government, officials told the paper. However, it is also possible they are simply warning to Western nations about the implications of providing assistance to rebel forces, they added."

"Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said repeatedly that he will not allow an existential risk to the Jewish State. This past summer, Netanyahu said during an interview on the U.S.-based television program “Fox News Sunday” that it is essential to prevent Syrian weapons from falling into the wrong hands."

"One major concern is the possibility that part of the Syrian arsenal may be transferred to Lebanon. "Could you imagine Hizbullah – the people are conducting with Iran all these terror attacks around the world – could you imagine them having chemical weapons?” he asked the interviewer."

"It would be like Al Qaeda having chemical weapons,” he continued. “It's something that is not acceptable to us, not acceptable to the United States and to any peaceable country in the world. "So I think that this is something we'll have to act to stop if the need arises,” he said. “And the need might arise if there's a regime collapse, but not a regime change.”

A little-known fact is that Syria's chemical and bio-weapons are highly sophisticated. Dr. Jill Dekker is a consultant to the NATO Defense Establishment in bio-warfare and counter terrorism. Dr. Dekker is also a member of the board of advisers of the Intelligence Summit. She gave an interview to the New English Review in December 2007. I wrote about that in 2010, here. In Dr. Dekker's interview, she said,

"In 2007 Syria promised bio-weapon retaliation against Israel should Israel strike Iran. In the New English Review, consultant to the NATO Defense Establishment in bio-warfare and counter terrorism expert Dr. Jill Dekker said that "Contrary to how the US State Department and other agencies tend to downplay the sophistication of the Syrian biological and nuclear programs, they are very advanced. Syria has always had the most advanced chemical weapons program in the Middle East." At that time, Dr. Dekker said that Syria had shifted in their philosophy of  using bio-weapons from special weapons to conventional arsenal, and they have the will to do it. Why? Realizing they have no practical opportunity to reach parity with Israel or the US on conventional weapons, they decided to pursue bio-weaponry and were at that time fixing conventional missiles with a highly virulent anthrax germ with the help of Russian scientists. Ominously for the world, the US nor the UN were particularly reactive to the Syrians' re-definition of bio-weaponry as conventional and offensive. Ominously for prophecy, the Syrians run their biological programs out of the Syrian Scientific Research Council (SSRC) in Damascus."

"Isaiah 17:1 states that Damascus will be destroyed. It will be a heap of ruins and will cease from being a city. That prophecy has not been fulfilled yet because Damascus, being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, has never been abandoned nor destroyed."

The prophecy does not state how Damascus will be destroyed. The prophecy only says it will be razed to the ground. It doesn't say who destroys Damascus. It could happen by nuke accidentally unleashed by terrorists, by God's direct hand, by Israel, or by some other nation, (Turkey??) or in a way we can't foresee. However it happens, it happens fast. (Isaiah 17:14).

Please keep the Syrians in your prayers. They have a devastating and bitter road ahead. God loves them, too. So many are rebelling against Him, judgment will come. Damascus is a city of 2 million, with an additional 2 million in suburbs. They will all die. And with chemical weapons being moved about, the ongoing revolution in Damascus, and the prophesied wars and rumors of wars everywhere, as stated in Matthew 24, life is hard and mean, getting worse by the day. Their death will be eternal and agonizing. Have compassion for the deluded Muslims who live there and beg God for mercy on their souls.


  1. Isn't it odd that the ministry to the gentiles began as he journeyed to Damascus. That road for the church age may end at Damascus. Damascus is an important piece. In His own timing the Lord will bring all those that He has reserved in Christ.
    Also , I love this New Christmas song with Video if I may.

    1. Hi Jeff,

      That is an interesting synchronicity, I hadn't thought of Damascus that way. Thanks for the insight.
      I listened to your song, and it is such a good one! Thank you again, for sharing it!
