The big news back in July was that Israel had taken control of the Temple Mount for the first time since 1967—albeit for only a few short days. But since that time, and spurred on my U.S., Guatemalan, and soon Honduran and Panamanian recognition of Israel’s right to Jerusalem, Jewish worshipers have begun showing increasing determination and now 42 Jews have openly prayed and worshiped on the Mount according to The Jerusalem Post and Breaking Israel News.
There is dramatic footage of the worshipers singing and chanting biblical and nationalistic slogans:
Not long before, Israeli warplanes again bombed Damascus, hitting the Mezzeh Military Airport. How much life does Damascus really have left? How many more bombs and tactical miscalculations before Isaiah 17and Jeremiah 49 are fulfilled?
A prophecy against Damascus: ‘See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.’
‘Hamath and Arpad are dismayed,
for they have heard bad news.
They are disheartened,
troubled like the restless sea.
Damascus has become feeble,
she has turned to flee
and panic has gripped her;
anguish and pain have seized her,
pain like that of a woman in labor.
Why has the city of renown not been abandoned,
the town in which I delight?
Surely, her young men will fall in the streets;
all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,’
declares the Lord Almighty.
‘I will set fire to the walls of Damascus;
it will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.’
The pieces of this cosmic, prophetic puzzle are still coming together. Perfectly. We would all be wise to be even more alert to the Lord’s imminent appearing because He is truly at the door. As “perfect” as this past September/October seemed to be, there is still a time coming that will be even more perfect—when all the dominoes are lined up with extreme precision. The perfect timing could very well be this year and there are some major reasons to think so as I discussed in my last article here.
