Bible's End Times Prophecy Linked to Possible US Attack on Syria
BY ANUGRAH KUMAR, CHRISTIAN POST CONTRIBUTOR September 2, 2013|8:47 am Some Christians are declaring the destruction of Damascus, Syria is fulfilling an end time Bible prophecy: “The burden of Damascus, "Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap” (Isaiah 17:1). This is coupled with the last verse in the chapter, they say relates to Armageddon.

"Isaiah 17 predicted the destruction of the city, along with the destruction of the northern kingdom of Israel…Damascus was captured by Assyrians in 732 BC and the northern kingdom of Israel fell when the capital city of Samarai was captured by the Assyrians in 722 BC."
