There is a change within the Watchmen’s stance. It is going from looking for a day to looking for an event.
Much of this was triggered by this video:
It may be true, I cannot say. But one thing that this video brings is a remarkable revelation on the possible importance of the destruction of Damascus.
This is one prophecy I had not noted or heard about until recent months. But Zachariah chapter 9 proves to be very interesting:
1 ¶ The burden of the Word of the LORD against the land of Hadrach, and its resting-place, Damascus (when the eye of man, and all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD);
3 And Tyre shall build herself a stronghold, and shall heap up silver like the dust, and gold like the mud of the streets;
4 behold, the Lord will cast her out, and He will strike her wealth in the sea, and she shall be burned up with fire.
5 Ashkelon shall see and fear; Gaza also shall writhe in great pain; and Ekron shall be ashamed for her hope. And the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
9 ¶ Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you. He is righteous and victorious, meek and riding on an ass, even on a colt, the son of an ass.
13 For I have bent Judah for me as a bow; I filled it with Ephraim, and I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and make you as the sword of a mighty man.
14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth like the lightning; and the Lord GOD shall blow the ram’s horn, and shall go out with the windstorms of the south.
15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour and trample the slingstones. And they shall drink and be boisterous, as through wine. And they shall be filled like a bowl, and like the corners of the altar.
16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of His people; for they are as stones of a crown, lifted up as a banner over His land.
Here we see Damascus, but also Gaza and the Philistines, which is believed to be the Palestinians. They will be involved.
Notice that Judah is like a bow, and the Lord will shoot His arrow like a lightning. Israel in recent months just received their new Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II jet!
But what is most remarkable is in verse 14, the Lord blows the trumpet (ram’s horn), it is now believed this goes with:
1 Thess 4:
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Thus it is now believed that it is possible that when Damascus gets destroyed, possibly by an Israeli nuke, or by weapons they themselves hid under their hospitals and schools, are set off when Israel hits the city.
This will infuriate the enemies of Israel and they will come together to start the prophesied wars.
But it appears there may be a miraculous element in this attack with Damascus, as the verses speak of God Himself acting. This coupled with the weapon(s) of mass destruction may be the trigger for the rapture and the working by God with Israel for their last 7 years.
Another possible trigger for the rapture would be a nuclear attack on Saudi Arabia by Iran. Some believe this is prophesied in scriptures, others say Saudi Arabia has been noted in scripture after such an event. I am not sure, I do not know the the modern names of the Biblical peoples mentioned. But it is a possibility.
So in essence it may be a lie, told about the rapture that this weapon caused the disappearance of millions. Do not believe it!
