Prophecy of Damacus: Syrians fire on thousands of protesters, killing 5

DAMASCUS, Syria – Police fired live ammunition and tear gas Sunday at thousands of Syrians protesting in a tense southern city for a third consecutive day, killing one person and signaling that unrest in yet another Arab country is taking root, activists said.

Enraged protesters set fire to several local government buildings, according to state media and a witness.

The violence in Daraa, a city of about 300,000 near the border with Jordan, was fast becoming a major challenge for President Bashar Assad, who tried to contain the situation by freeing detainees and promising to fire officials responsible for the violence.

Protesters in Syria, however, would face a tough time trying to pull off a serious uprising along the lines of those that toppled leaders in Egypt and Tunisia. Assad’s Syria is a country that crushes political dissent, closely controls the media and routinely jails critics of the regime.

Despite the political repression and rights abuses, Assad remains popular among many in the Arab world, in particular, because he is seen as one of the few Arab leaders willing to stand up to Israel. It is also not clear how much support any uprising would have within the country. A few earlier attempts to organize protests through social networking sites fell flat.

The confrontations in Syria began Friday when security troops fired at protesters in the city and killed five people.

My Comment:

It is not a coincidence that Syria is in the news in a time when God’s Word is proven 100% that we are living in the end of age.

Syria will not go unpunished assisting those who continue to do evil against Israel. And even so, the nations surrounding Israel will not escape judgment from OurMight God; Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 17

An Oracle Against Damascus

1An oracle concerning Damascus:

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city

but will become a heap of ruins.

2The cities of Aroer will be deserted

and left to flocks, which will lie down,

with no one to make them afraid.

3The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,

and royal power from Damascus;

the remnant of Aram will be

like the glory of the Israelites,”

declares the Lord Almighty.

4“In that day the glory of Jacob will fade;

the fat of his body will waste away.

5It will be as when a reaper gathers the standing grain

and harvests the grain with his arm—

as when a man gleans heads of grain

in the Valley of Rephaim.

6Yet some gleanings will remain,

as when an olive tree is beaten,

leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches,

four or five on the fruitful boughs,”

declares the Lord, the God of Israel.

One thought on “Prophecy of Damacus: Syrians fire on thousands of protesters, killing 5

  1. I was watching a show on FOX news this evening by a man that I rather enjoy watching because he tells the truth, which is rare for news these days. He made the very good point that none of the media is covering the full scope of the uprisings in the middle east…. and they aren’t. If I didn’t keep up with news on this site, and other sites, I would be blind to what is going on in the world. Prophecy sites are discussing these topics, among others non-stop. Mainstream media only informs us of what the government thinks we should know.

    I found it surreal that he had the guts to discuss the following topics on air. He was talking about people in our government trying to cause economic collapse, which I fully believe, and how the US is turning it’s back on Israel… which we all know.

    But here’s what was really interesting… He was discussing the islam belief in the 12th imam, and comparing it with the Christian concept of the antichrist. He also said that muslims believe that the 12th imam is already here, and will soon establish a movement of islam in every nation.

    His message was also that we should prepare because these uprisings will be starting in America. They already are, people are protesting and rioting in several states here for various reasons. We have people openly promoting the islam agenda on television, in government and at conventions in major cities. I just wish I could scream– HELLO, WAKE UP PEOPLE!! The sad part, is that it probably wouldn’t matter. America has become a fairly Godless country. Sure there are good Christian people here, but they are definitely a minority. Churches are being corrupted, and are preaching false doctrine all over the place… it’s terrible.

    He also quoted someone as saying that critics were polled as saying that most Christians only believe about 1/2 of Revelations, and that most religous people were viewed as stupid. WOW… As I told my husband, Christ is about to make a believer out of these folks very soon!
