The Burden Of Damascus
Not since Israel, again, miraculously became a nation in 1948 will the Lord provide the Church with such a tremendous evangelistic tool. But He will do so in the form of another fulfilled prophecy with the destruction of Damascus, Syria. Damascus is the oldest, continuously occupied city in the world. But 3000 years ago, the prophet Isaiah wrote:

"Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." (Isaiah 17:1)

Israel has stated if they’re attacked by Hizbullah forces, which have threatened the Jewish state with cross-border rocket fire, they will hold Damascus accountable. Damascus is going to be destroyed, and it may be nearer than you think.

We have produced a short ninety-second video which you can use to win souls for Christ, especially after this event takes place. Here is the video:

I believe the Rapture of the Church is spoken of within the prophetic text of the Damascus prophecy. Consider these events in light of their Biblical correlation. Damascus is destroyed: "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." (Isaiah 17:1 KJV)

The initial attack against Israel resulted in multiple Israeli casualties: "And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean." (Isaiah 17:4 KJV)

At some point after the Damascus destruction, the Rapture occurs: "And it shall be as when the harvest man gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim." (Isaiah 17:5 KJV)

Those who will be Tribulation Saints are left behind: "Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outermost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel." (Isaiah 17:6 KJV)

I truly believe the Church is on borrowed time, soon to be united with her Lord and Savior. Until then, she must persevere and use this upcoming prophecy to win souls for Christ. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
