Syria, Isaiah and Obama


The United States has already imposed sanctions on Assad and members of his government, and is thought to be weighing new sanctions including ones on the Syrian oil and gas industry.


The United Nations, Security Council condemn human rights violations and use of force against civilians by Syrian it’s president Bashar al-Assad.


Are we heading down the same road as Libya? The Middle East unrest is part of the fulfillment of End Time prophecy.



The Obama administration seems to have lost control over World affairs in the last year leading to the Arab Spring, Summer and Fall.


Syria has an unfulfilled prophecy that has yet to come to pass:


Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. 2The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 3The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.


Is the current civil unrest in Syria the beginning of what may turn out to be the fulfillment of this prophecy?


The United States views Bashar al-Assad as the cause of instability in the country:

“Syria would be a better place without President Assad,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said at a news conference.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Syria of deliberately attempting to inflame tensions along its border with Israel in order to divert attention from its bloody crackdown on internal protests.


If Bashar al-Assad makes a wrong move he could bring fire down on Damascus from Israel as the prophecy foretells.


The Obama administration dispatched the U.S. ambassador to Syria to meet anti-regime protesters in a besieged city. Robert Ford was greeted by demonstrators with roses and cheers.

So far, the U.S. government has refused to call for an end to the Assad family’s four-decade dynasty.
