Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
I am watching the Middle East very closely. It appears that Saudi Arabia has no choice but war with Iran. With the fall of ISIS, the way is now clear for Iran to move its army into Syria which will threaten Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Iran is very aggressive throughout the region and the Saudis are backed into a corner.
If Iran moves it army into Syria or attacks Saudi Arabia, Israel will be forced to attack Iran which also means Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel can’t let Iran defeat Saudi Arabia. This war will drag Egypt into it.
No matter what keep you eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus coming for his bride!… read more

In its heyday, ISIS conquered large swaths of territory. Al-Qaeda and other terror groups have controlled pockets of land here and there, but not like ISIS. For a couple of years, ISIS was building a country. More precisely, they were building a caliphate.
In 2014, ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, made the claim that his genealogy went back to Mohammed himself — a requirement for a true caliph. His followers began using the title “Caliph” to address and describe him. They called him, “Commander of the Believers.” They saw him as the leader of all Muslims. ISIS changed names. It became simply “The Islamic State.”
Thankfully, all that is disappearing now. ISIS controls territory in Syria and Iraq, but less every day. Their hope of a grand future is dying. Young people from all over the world came to Syria and Iraq, eager to join “a great cause.” Thousands of them now lie in mass graves.
Our military commanders correctly remind us that there is much to be done. But the fearsome ISIS war machine long ago lost momentum, then began to lose its lands. In July, Iraqi forces retook the ISIS stronghold of Mosul. A few days ago, a U.S.-backed group called the “Syrian Democratic Forces” took over Raqqa in Syria. That had been the defacto capital of ISIS…. read more
