October 30: The Nations

God’s judgement on Damascus for their treatment against Israel is recorded several times by different prophets.  Today we see the continuing battle with Israel bringing destruction closer and closer to Damascus.

Amos 1:1-5

The words of Amos, who was among the sheepbreeders of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.

And he said:

“The Lord roars from Zion,
And utters His voice from Jerusalem;
The pastures of the shepherds mourn,
And the top of Carmel withers.”

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron.
But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael,
Which shall devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad.
I will also break the gate bar of Damascus,
And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven,
And the one who holds the scepter from Beth Eden.
The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,”
Says the Lord.

 

PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE OF DAMASCUS TO TURN FROM THEIR SIN AND HATRED OF ISRAEL AND LOOK UPON JESUS AND BE SAVED.
