I few weeks ago I commented on Isaiah’s oracle concerning Damascus which has yet to be fulfilled. I offered some helpful advice to Damascans, based on recent events: move.
But Syria seems more determined than ever to pursue a policy of self destruction. Assad says Syria will retake the Golan Heights from Israel. Hezbollah is already resupplying (from guess who?) since the ceasefire. Lebanon is not going to disarm Hezbollah; Hezbollah is clearly running Lebanon’s foreign (Broken link, active August 23, 2006) and military policy (Broken link, active August 23, 2006) (is that not what state- sponsored terrorist groups do?).
But if destruction comes on Damascus, it will be of the Lord Himself:
And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. Zechariah 14:12
08/17 Update: Now Syria wants to make its own Hezbollah- like organization, because Israel does not have enough terrorists and crazies trying to wipe them off the map.
08/18 Update: Syria is acting as the conduit for Chinese- built missiles coming in from Iran.
08/23 Update: Syrian president Assad rejects Israeli demands for UN troops on Syrian border to halt arms smuggling to Hezbollah. I should rename this post Damascus Destruction Watch.
