The prophecy of Damascus; behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap (Isaiah 17:1). Perhaps what I have to say today by now will be a moot point. But as of this writing, the United States is contemplat- ing going to war with Syria. There is anxiety as to whether or not Congress will approve our President's desire. He will be speaking to the nation the evening that this is being written. Syria's capital is Damascus, and it is said to be the oldest continuously inhabited capital in the world. Yet Scripture declares in our text above that one day it will be destroyed. Will that day be soon, or is this something in the far future? This has been a topic of speculation since Isaiah wrote these words some 2750 years ago. I believe that those who see the destruction as already having taken place are mistaken. While it is true that Damascus has been attacked, it has never been fully destroyed as the text foretells. Therefore this must be a future event. Will it occur before Christ returns to rapture His church, or will it occur during the seven year period known as the Tribulation? We cannot know, only that it wil_._! occur because God has prophesied it in His Word. How can we be sure that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled? The answer is that it has been fulfilled many times in the past, without error, and therefore we can depend on it for the future. On a larger scale, if we turn to the book of Ezekiel, we find that prophetically, there are several other nations that are men- tioned in Bible prophecy. I am referring specifically to Ezekiel 38, 39, and what is called the 'War of Gog and Magog.' Magog refers to a portion of Russia and many of the former Soviet republics. Gog is a reference to Russia's ruler. A care- ful study of this passage will reveal that in the end days there will be an alignment of nations against the nation of Israel. This is primarily Russia, but includes Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, and other nations of the Persian Gulf. Isn't it interesting that these nations are often in the news today; especially Russia and its President, Putin? I fred it fascinating that he desires to intervene in this Syria situation with an attempt to broker peace. And then there is Iran which promises to intervene if Syria is attacked by the West. Could our opening text come to pass right before our eyes? When the OT prophets wrote their books, Islam had not yet been invented. It is a relatively modem religion, the prophet Mohammad having been born in 570 AD. How could the OT prophets know about the various Islamic nations and how they would play a part in the politics of the end times? Only a God who created the world by the breath of His mouth, and who sees the end from the beginning, could foretell such world- wide happenings. As I have written many times in this column, it is important to keep our eyes on Israel. If the United States attacks Syria, what have some of her neighbors (Iran and Russia) promised to do? Attack Israel. This writer is not looking forward to the Battle of Gog and Magog. It will involve the destruction of much property and the death of untold millions. Yet one can't help but be capti- vated as we see the biblical prophecy played out in living color before our very eyes. What is a person to do? Repent of sin and believe the gos- pel of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is God and our coming King. Believer, keep looking up!
