Assad: Syria Will 'Give Hizbullah Everything'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 5/9/2013 | Arutz Sheva staff

Posted on 05/09/2013 4:57:13 AM PDT by TruthInThoughtWordAndDeed

Syria will "give Hizbullah everything" in recognition of its support and will follow the terrorist group's model of "resistance" against Israel, a Lebanese newspaper on Thursday quoted President Bashar al-Assad as saying.

--snip--

Assad was quoted as saying Syria could "easily" respond to Israeli air strikes by "firing a few rockets at Israel."

Assad is begging for the prophesied destruction of Damascus.

Isaiah 17:1-2a

1 An oracle concerning Damascus. Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city, and will become a heap of ruins. 2 Her cities will be deserted for ever;

I am fully expecting this prophecy to be fulfilled within weeks.

Yep many, many Christians are seeing this as a prophesy being fulfilled right before our very eyes... which also means that the return of Christ is truly imminent. God help us stand for Christ in these end times, Amen!

There has to be more to happen before Christ returns. We have been in the end Times since Christ’s Ascension into Heaven. The final battle takes place in the Plains of Megiddo (Armageddon). Christians well know that there will be more to occur prior to Christ’s return.

Damascus is the opening salvo...from the destruction of the city one starts counting the 42 months....

Things appear to be moving quickly from the changes in Rome(Pope of Humility) to the Arab Spring to now Syria...

Keep in mind the time of the gentiles must be fulfilled as well. Gentiles doesn’t mean Christians marching in the Holy City, it means Egyptians....Just 5 years ago we would have not thought that possible.

Yes. Not even Jesus Christ himself knows the hour of his return.

This report sounds like Syria intends to launder weapons through terrorist groups. However I am not sure why this would be announced to the world.

Exactly a month ago I was standing on the hill of Megiddo, looking at the valley. It is almost incomprehensible that so many will not submit to God, and the blood will run horse’s bridle deep from there to the Valley of Jehoshaphat in Jerusalem.

He may not have been privy when He walked among us, but you can bet, being wholly God, He knows now. He is an active participant in being the Great I Am.

No. Jesus was quite clear on that point and referred to the 2nd person of the Trinity not knowing the hour.

Mark 13:32 “but about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father”

The point being that even if the Son (Christ) Himself doesn’t know the hour then certainly no man would know. We aren’t supposed to know. Run away from any so-called “teacher” that thinks THEY know when Jesus will return.

>Yes that description is accurate

Assuming 6 billion people with a gallon of blood each, that would be 18,365 acre feet of blood. Divided by a five foot harness, we have 3673 acres of land to account for.

How many acres are in this area that is to be horse harness deep in blood?

Some have said it is 200 miles long, some 150 miles long and something like 20 miles or 30 miles wide.

A person usually has 5 quarts of blood, if I’m not mistaken.

I’ve always assumed the blood ran that high because there is war machinery, even horses, occupying some of the volume.

But it is what the Scripture says.

I agree that we will not know until all eyes see His return. Until that day, only God will know - God has all 3 facets and I can't believe that two facets remain ignorant and unable to reside outside time to be aware of all that happens in the relatively tiny capsule we exist in. What purpose to keep the Son ignorant now that He resides as a reconnected facet with the Father and the Spirit? All that He said when He walked with us was absolute Truth - it was also Old Covenant Truth with a reassurance that Prophesy was being fulfilled through Him. The New Covenant did not begin until He arose and joined the Father - I personally believe it change more than our future. It's even possible that He became aware before He died. He was given full authority over Heaven and Earth (Matthew 28:18) before that event and yet He remained obedient instead of using the power of God to save Himself the pain. That makes His love for us even more awesome.

He told me that when the news came that the Whole of Eastern Jerusalem had been retaken the entire community went absolutely ecstatic with joy.

5Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, 6“As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”

7“Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?”

8He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. 9When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

10Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

12“But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13And so you will bear testimony to me. 14But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17Everyone will hate you because of me. 18But not a hair of your head will perish. 19Stand firm, and you will win life.

20“When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

25“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

Interesting topic and I have thought similar thoughts as you. We do know from scripture that the Holy Spirit is mentioned in context of certain tasks / functions that it fulfills. Also Jesus many times distinguishes the Son from the Father. So Father, Son and Holy Spirit are separate persons and apparently have distinct roles. However the details of how the trinity works is beyond any of us. All we have is the scripture.

Basher has to be thinking ‘use ‘em or lose ‘em. And spreading them around would be his idea of a nice touch. He’s also the same kind of punk that the NGook is so throwing out a few random threats would be about page 9 in his playbook. And remember he has to keep a few friends so that he ultimately has a redoubt to retreat to.

Well, divide by 1600 furlongs-—that’ll give you one direction. But subtract one gallon or so because I’m not going. Maybe you’d better subtract a couple extra to account for the first couple dummies who try to round me up for the trip-—that blood will be spread around the farm right here.

I was there on April 9, Friday. There was a group of French Christians at the same time, singing hymns. Probably, the last Christians left in France. We spent there a few hours in the afternoon, but had to leave a little early because it was Friday and they close an hour earlier than usual because of the Sabbath.

I agree. Scripture gives us much to ponder and be in awe of. Even with the personal relationship He established by walking among us, we will not comprehend everything until He brings us home - and even then some may remain beyond us. God Bless.
