Opening volley:

 

Isa 17:1  The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Isa 17:4  And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.

Isa 17:12  Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!

Isa 17:14  And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

 

Here we can read how the city of Damascus is destroyed in a few hours time(v14); also marking the time of "Jacobs' Trouble"(v.4, Jer 30:7), the time, times and a half  time (3.5 years) in which Israel is oppressed by the nations. Clearly it is visible that during the fulfillment of Isa 17 this has period is already underway.

 

Jer 30:7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

 

How could this calamity have happened?

 

Israel came into a very, very narrow corner to nuke the capitol of Syria. Let's go to Matt.24 to get some more information :

 

Mat 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Mat 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

 

The abomination of desolation, also named the abomination that makes desolate.

Let's go to Daniel :

 

Dan 12:10  Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Dan 12:11  And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  A thousand, two hundred and ninety days : 3.5 years.

 

What is this detestable thing that destroys and maketh desolate?

 

And even more : suddenly it became quiet on the other side of the pond……

Why is America not coming to the rescue for Israel ?

 

 

 

 

 

First things first: let us focus in the political situation and the movement of troops in and around the time of Jacob's trouble and the destruction of Damascus.

 

 

1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

 

Paul here refers to the peace and safety-deal that is struck in Daniel, Isiah also mentioned the deal when he writes :

 

Isa 28:15  Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

 

Also in:

 

Jer 30:6  Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

Jer 30:7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

 

Details of this political deal can be read in Daniel :

 

Dan 8:25  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

 

The person described here is called in verse 23 a king of fierce countenance,  direct translated as " a mighty mouth" (az paw-neem') which is a pointer towards the little horn that speaks great words  (eg: Dan 7:8 )

 

This king is helping the Jewish people to confirm this deal that they'll be protected and have peace, even when a vast army comes in and runs over them. They think that the king will protect them…..

 

Isaiah 28 clearly states that the people know that they'll be threatened, yet they believe their peace is secure through this covenant. Isaiah 28:18 states :

 

Isa 28:18  And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

 

Notice once again the words "overflowing scourge" directly translated as a "rushy whip" (sha^t?aph sho^t? )  

 

 

 

Analysis of troop movement in the last days will reveal the rushy whip; this whip is also called "whirlwind" in Dan 11:40. But how did this plot thicken ?

 

Remember, we're still talking about the same king that confirmed the covenant (of death) and apparently he has his armies close to Israel. His political career is even more detailed portrayed in :

 

Dan 11:36  And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

 

And further:

 

Dan 11:40  And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

 

Notice: any direction that is mentioned in a prophecy is from the place it has been prophecied from. In Daniels' case we are dealing with ancient Babylon; modern day Iraq.

 

The king of the north is identified as "the bear" or "Gog and Magog" (Eze 38), modern day Russia and some rogue Islamic states. They will conspire to attack Israel.

 

This overflow in verse 40 is overflowing and passing through Iraq (towards the Holy Land.) is the same as mentioned in Isa 28:18. The sudden destruction that comes upon the Jewish state gives the reaction as described in Isaiah 17. Read again :

 

Isa 17:14  And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

 

The attack starts in the evening, and the response on that attack is done before the next morning; Isa 17v1b […] Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

 

 

 

 

 

On to the big question that was mentioned at the beginning of this document !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is America not responding, not retaliating ?

 

 

Ezechiel 38 will unveil this 'mystery'. For a mystery she has been….

 

Eze 38:2  Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

 

 

Eze 38:9  Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

Eze 38:10  Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

Eze 38:11  And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

Eze 38:12  To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

 

 

Ezechiel once again confirmes and identifies the whirlwind of Dan 11:40b. In verse 10 however the plot thikens in a very big way. Verse 10 reads : "at the same time shall [..]thou think an evil thought:"

 

Eze 38:11  And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

 

The land of unwalled villages is identified as the USA, one reason is that because of the covenant that is confirmed and protected by them, and make them desolate (v12).

 

Once again: an abomination that maketh desolate. (v12)

 

In short: the USA is targeted by several nuclear devices and destroyed at the same time the armies do their run towards Israel. At that time, Matthew 24 reads :

 

 

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Mat 24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Appendixes :

 

 

Rev. Kenneth Hagin confirmed the imminent nuclear attack on Israel on March the 2nd 2005 through the TCT Network. He also received confirmation about this attack on Israel from Mr. Netanyahu, 2nd in command in the Israeli cabinet. Mr. Netanyahu also pointed out that with the intercontinental ballistic missile Iran now has, a nucleair device could potentially hit targets as far as the coastal cities of the USA.

 

 

Received from the Lord on January the 29th, 2005 +/- 3:00

 

"The region where you live now will see the fulfillment of the prophecy for the whole world in regards to Mijn Spirit that will cover the earth as a blanket. Even the full outporing of My Holy Spirit will not get some places out of darkness." ( Europe and other places came to my mind )

 

This place and others will receive this. This is the harvest, as often called 'the end-time harvest' Where I saw the image of an atomic bomb exploding.

" Satan has desired a harvest for himself and it will come in the appearance of the black/pale horse (in Rev.)" en He went on with the time after I thought about the timing. "The time of My harvest will be fulfilled before that time, the other will take place in the period of 1260 days, before the end of days, My Coming"
