Punishment of Syria
While modern Syria has an historical connection to ancient Assyria there is no political connection. But there are important spiritual connections and applications between Assyria and the nations of the earth today.
God speaks warning of judgment to Assyria, but note that it extends to all the nations of the earth. He will end all Israel/Jewish oppression and persecution.
Isaiah 14: 24-27
The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying,
“Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
And as I have purposed, so it shall stand:
That I will break the Assyrian in My land,
And on My mountains tread him underfoot.
Then his yoke shall be removed from them,
And his burden removed from their shoulders.
This is the purpose that is purposed against the whole earth,
And this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.
For the Lord of hosts has purposed,
And who will annul it?
His hand is stretched out,
And who will turn it back?”
“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.
The cities of Aroer are forsaken;
They will be for flocks
Which lie down, and no one will make them afraid.
The fortress also will cease from Ephraim,
The kingdom from Damascus,
And the remnant of Syria;
They will be as the glory of the children of Israel,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE CHURCH OF SYRIA TO BREAK FREE OF ANY ANTI-ISRAEL, ANTI-JEWISH FEELINGS.
