The Significance of Syria In the Bible Prophecy Today

Is the Syria of Today the Assyria of the Bible?

In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day, Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” (Isaiah 19: 23-25)

Does the Bible Predict End Times Destruction in Syria?

With Russia’s recent airstrikes targeting rebels in Syria, this end times subject matter is once again getting some attention, though it remains controversial, as many counter that the Old Testament simply doesn’t offer up any eschatological proclamations about the modern era.

Some Evangelicals See Biblical Prophecy In Syrian Crises

That’s a prophetic passage from the Biblical book of Isaiah, chapter 17, and now some fundamentalist Christian blogs are buzzing with the belief that the escalating violence in Syria means the ancient text may soon be fulfilled. “The long prophesied end days are here,” one blog announces. “With the terrorist groups that operate out of Damascus building up arms caches on the border of Israel in anticipation of another war in the near future, it may not be long before this prophecy from Isaiah 17 becomes history,” another group awaiting Jesus Christ’s return predicts. Nearly all Biblical scholars, however, argue that such a literalist interpretation of the text is highly problematic. The passage was written more than 2,500 years ago, and it condemns Jerusalem’s enemies around the time of the Assyrian invasion. The prophetic oracles, as that section of Isaiah is called, name not just Syria but numerous ancient nations, including Moab, Babylon, Egypt, and Tyre, that threatened the Jewish people at the time.

Prophetic minister Perry Stone, in Israel for an upcoming telecast when Iran struck a historic deal Sunday with six world powers over Tehran.

Also the prophecy about the assassination of “4 Heads of State” could be correct :

After the fourth head of state Bashar al-Assad is removed, World War III will start and we al know that Iran or Syria cannot start WW-III, if there is a third world war, the only nations that can start or have to fight for getting a third world war are : US/NATO against Russia and China. All the other nations will pick a side, here is a possible scenario :

EAST : Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, N.Korea, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, …

WEST : US, Europe, India, Japan, S.Korea, Australia, Israel, …

THE PROPHECY OF DAMASCUS: The Heap Of Ruins City! : Isaiah 17  And the prophecy of Isaiah 17:1 has yet to be fulfilled: “A prophecy against Damascus: ‘See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.’” Damascus, the capital of Syria, has a longstanding reputation for being the oldest continuously occupied city in the world.

    Jim Daniel Are you excluding Syria by focusing on Turkey? Turkey is mentioned in the Bible much less than Syria and with only partial focus on the end times. While Syria seems to be quite central to the prophetic patterns

      No. I am excluding Russia as a major player. The leader of the attack is from the region of modern day Turkey. In the days of the Bible, Assyria would have covered the eastern portion of Turkey, northern Iraq and part of present day Syria. The southern Islamic territories of the former Soviet Union could also play a part, but this is an Islamic coalition of nations by today’s reckoning.

      How do you reach this conclusion? These former southern Islamic territories are very much part of Russia today and there is a push for more even sovereign Ukraine currently again in the midst of the fire

      Because the coalition is Islamic. There is a possibility that they could be drawn into the conflict, espevially if they go the route that the Islamic world seems to be moving, i.e. towards a more militant and fundamentalist form of Islam. Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah and Gomer are all found in Modern day Turkey which is presently trending away from secularism and towards fundamentalism. Persia (present Iran), Lybia, Ethiopia (modern Somalia and vicinity) are also Muslim.
      For all Putin’s bluster, he is apparently having a difficult time subduing the Ukraine and is presently stalemated. Not exactly a conquering powerhouse.

      The antichrist will most likely come from the area of the old Assyrian Empire and the Muslims will accept him as their Mahdi. He will be accompanied by someone claiming to be Jesus, who acts as the false prophet and denies the gospel. It appears that events will eventually turn the world against him leading to Armageddon.

    Stan Wayne Ricky Grimsley The US military dropped America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb on ISIS targets in Afghanistan Thursday, the first time this type of weapon has been used in battle, according to US officials.

    A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” was dropped at 7:32 p.m. local time, according to four US military officials with direct knowledge of the mission. A MOAB is a 30-foot-long, 21,600-pound, GPS-guided munition.

    A bomb called MOAB Stan Wayne

    Trump bombed Asad in Syria who is also fighting ISIS, but is friends with Russia; Russia is now at all time low friendship with the USA. UN and NATO are both on a note. So how does Trump resolve the world war crises – bombs the Afghanistan (enemy of Russia since 1979) with the biggest bomb ever.

    Complicated alliances. Iran is another complication. This weekend could get worse with North Korea. I wonder what Trump and Xi agreed to.

    As I said earlier concerning the highway between Syria Israel and Egypt and the seeming indication that these nations will be under God: I believe this can only happen after Jesus has returned and set up his thousand year reign. So that passage of scripture (Isaiah 19) is pointing to the thousand year reign.

    As far as predicting which nations will be in the battle of Gog – it is clearly stated.

    As far as which nations will be in the battle of Armageddon – is unclear. Only the kings of the east may indicate China. But which nations will be under the anti-christ is anybody’s guess.

    But for sure these two battles should not be conflated. As I showed in my previous post I can find off the top of my head at least nine differences between the two battles.

    should first try to understand Erdogan. His problem is simply the 14 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, 6 million in Istanbul alone. Never before on my trips here did I ever see such throngs of scarf-headed women who Parasut explained as being Syrians. They must be cared for by the Turkish army and they take jobs and compete in the market with the Turkish people, a far worse immigration problem than in the US. Erdogan wants to know what country will take them. Otherwise, he aims to make a home for them in Syria.

    Now, who caused this problem? Isn’t it a result of the US starting a civil war in Syria? Exporting US ideas about democracy is the cause of problems here.
