1 - Updated article on how to discern Damascus' destruction...
As many prophecy fans already know, Damascus is a doomed city. Isaiah prophesied that the world's longest inhabited city will "cease to be a city..[and]...become a ruinous heap."(Isaiah 17:1). So why do things keep going on the same with the prophecy unfulfilled?
The Syrian uprising certainly seems different. If the US. goes ahead with her "shot across the bow" punishment for the chemical weapons or the uprising simply continues to expand, Syria looks to be going through big changes.
Naturally, this has prophecy students wondering if Damascus' end is near...again. As someone who has been watching the Middle East in light of the prophecies about Damascus for the last two decades, I can tell you this is nothing new. I have seen many fruitless predictions of "the end of Damascus soon" with almost every M.E. conflict.
Why do these predictions keep failing?
Obviously, something has been missing in people's analysis of Isaiah 17 if they keep expecting it and it keeps not happening.
