Ongoing events are continuing to prove that we are near the final happenings prophesied in the bible for the end times. On 20th December 2013, I had a dream that seemed to also confirm some of these events. In the dream, I saw three black missiles from Israel over Syria and they were going to hit targets there. I seemed to be viewing this from the air over Syria. The scene then changed and I was on the 2nd floor of a storied building and I saw people running around outside in panic. I saw my mum in front of a counter and she looked worried. I then told her that if this had happened, then other things were to follow soon, i.e the rapture and tribulation.
According to several news sources on 5th December, Syrian air defense units allegedly shot down three Israeli missiles that were targeting a military post near the capital, Damascus, only days after the Jewish state hit a military position nearby. Israel is suspected of making several other strikes in Syria since early 2013. These strikes seem to be a partial fulfillment of the dream and are signals that more is to happen soon leading up to the rapture and tribulation.
Isaiah 17:1 A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a citybut will become a heap of ruins…….” NIV
Jerusalem, a cup of trembling for the nations
Trump has also just declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, breaking away from international standing on the issue. This has occurred in the 70th year since the passing of the United Nations (UN) resolution 181. This resolution was passed by the UN General Assembly on the 29th of November 1947 and it called for the partition of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states, with the city of Jerusalem as a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) to be governed by a special international regime. The resolution was considered by the Jewish community in Palestine to be a legal basis for the establishment of Israel. (Source: Britannica.com). Trumps action has led to outrage from many Arab leaders.
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Look, I will make Jerusalem a cup that causes staggering for the peoples who surround the city. The siege against Jerusalem will also involve Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who try to lift it will injure themselves severely when all the nations of the earth gather against her. HCSB
I would also like to share the video below from the Midnight Hour Oil YouTube channel where Melissa does a good job at summarizing some of these events in recent hours. The video is about 5 minutes long.
