Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.”

The original Hebrew is interesting in the description. Damascus is going to be wiped out. The grammar states it is going to be taken away and removed. One could state it will be a ruined ruin or a ruined heap!

This is the city of Damascus, Syria. Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city on the planet. The city’s had residents and inhabitants for over 5,000 years.

December 7, 2016: The New Arab is reporting Israeli jets have struck Hezbollah positions near President Assad’s palace in Damascus. The presidential palace is also located close to the Mezzeh Military Airport. This area is located west of Damascus. There were no injuries or deaths reported in the strike. This is the second strike in the last 24 hours.

Three military checkpoints were also struck near Zabadani. An undisclosed number of Hezbollah personnel was killed in the bombing.

This story is also being circulated by the Turk publication Anadolu Post, BBC News out of Britain, and The Financial Times.

The following excerpts are from Debka.com. Debka is a private Israeli intelligence service. Official Syrian regime sources claimed Israel fired ground-to-ground missiles at Mezzeh military airport which is west of Damascus. Reports stated the attack occurred about 4:15 am. Videos show explosions indicating ammunition, bombs, or missiles had been hit. There has been no Israeli comment on the incident.

Israel prefers the long standing position of “strategic ambiguity”. Translation, there will be no official comment out of Israel.

In Tel Aviv Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, “Israel acts first and foremost to protect its citizens and its sovereignty. We are trying to prevent the smuggling of sophisticated weaponry, military equipment, and weapons of mass destruction from Syria to Hezballah.” He emphasized that Israel is not involved in the Syrian civil war. Israel wants the Iranians and Syrian President Bashar Assad out of the country.

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
