The Coming Destruction of Damascus

Ghoti Ichthus

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
Damascus is definitely identified as being totally destroyed in the scriptures but right now it's hard for me to feel things are happening that would result in the sudden and quick destruction of this city; unless the way we are needing to interpret this has to do with a longer term cycle of destructions leading to a final conclusion of eventual uninhabitable destruction.

All it would take is one terrorist nuke/accident
Or a big enough storage facility of military munitions exploding (on purpose or accidentally from improper storage, etc.), especially if it caused other storage facilities or natural gas lines to go up
During Gulf War, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) (chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons/munitions/materials) allegedly evacuated across the border from Iraq into Syria and that's why U.S., etc. didn't find them in Iraq. Hiding them in Damascus, thereby using the entire civilian population of Damascus as human shields, not out of the realm of possibility. If this happened, more than likely at least some of it not properly stored and/or secured, so an accident or theft would not be unexpected.

Or there could be a military strike from any number of places/groups. Turkey, Iran, etc. Both are currently persecuting Christians. Russia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, ISIL, Hezbollah, and Yemen are all involved in the Syrian mess. Over half of the population of Syria has been displaced over the last 10 years, and millions are refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Don't forget the Kurds, whose areas cross borders, and who are persecuted/attacked from all sides

It would take an entire book to explore and explain the situation over there right now, and by the time the first chapter were written, it would be out of date because everything changes on a daily/hourly basis.

And how did they do that without going through Israeli territory?
Through Syria or Syria and Lebanon then by land or sea to Gaza, etc.

This part of why Israel attacks parts of Lebanon on a regular basis. Kind of like the U.S. did with the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos during the Vietnam War.

For those too young to remember, it would be like Mexico bombing I-10 if terrorists/cartels/rebels were using it to move military equipment and munitions so they could attack/keep on fighting against the Mexican government in Mexico.

This is also why Israel intercepts and searches boats it finds in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea from the north end of Lebanon south. to Africa.

Stuff can also go the long way around via the Suez Canal and/or Sinai and/or Red Sea and/or Gulf of Eilat.

I always thought Damascus was a major hiding place for a serious arsenal. Then, it would make sense that it would be targeted/destroyed.
