PREPARING FOR THE OVERFLOW
HERE ARE 101 SIMPLE STRATEGIES TO HELP BRING IN THE HARVEST.
HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE END TIMES
13 – What is a Ruinous Heap?
Will Damascus become a ruinous heap? What is a Ruinous Heap? It is exactly what is described, a heap of ruins. According to bible prophecy, things could definitely end up that way. Pray for the people of Damascus. According to bible prophecy, the future of Damascus doesn’t look too bright.
“As civil war rages in Syria and other nations ponder potential involvement, some Bible teachers believe we can see biblical end-times prophecy unfolding right before our eyes. The Middle East is a religious-political powder keg and has been for years, but the Syrian Crisis seems to be making the situation that much more explosive. Because of Syria’s proximity to Israel, Egypt’s troubles, Iran’s threats, and the United States’ ultimatums, there is talk of the end times, Armageddon, and World War III.
It is true that, with every passing day, we draw closer to the Second Coming of Christ (James 5:8). And the prophecy of Isaiah 17:1 has yet to be fulfilled: “A prophecy against Damascus: ‘See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.’” Damascus, the capital of Syria, has a longstanding reputation for being the oldest continuously occupied city in the world. It has never been without citizens or totally destroyed. But Isaiah’s prophecy still stands; there is coming a day when Damascus will be nothing but a “heap of ruins.” The current war in Syria could indeed be one of the events leading up to the capital’s destruction.
There are other verses in the Bible tethered to Isaiah 17:1, but the idea of a ruinous heap suggests that not one building is left standing in Damascus. The city will no longer be a city. Some students of prophecy believe a nuclear bomb could be the means of fulfilling this prophecy; others suggest the possibility of an earthquake. Regardless of exactly how or when it happens, two things we know for sure: God is sovereign and His Word will stand (Isaiah 40:8).” Notes taken from Got Questions See Link below.
So if you read this article and want to know how to avoid the Great Tribulation Period and how to be ready for the rapture, the answer is simple, You need to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Romans 10:9-13 says, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
So pray this prayer,
I come to you in the name of Jesus.
I accept that Jesus came into this world to save me.
I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that He was raised again from the dead for me.
Jesus, I confess you as Lord today. Please come into my life and be my Lord and Saviour. I say today, before God and people, that I belong to Jesus.
Thank you, God, for saving me from my sins. Thank you, Lord God, for forgiving me of my sins and granting me life and love for all of eternity.
If you prayed that prayer, Jesus heard you and you are now saved. Now, you need to connect with other believers in Christ and learn how to build a relationship with Jesus. We have a community and lots of online resources to help you do that.
