Isn't there a Bible prophecy somewhere that says in the final days about Damascus lying in ruins and this is when Israel gets attacked from all sides for the final battle or something?

If we see Damascus destroyed, does that mean that it is a surefire sign that the Kingdom of God is drawing near? I don't need answers like "duuuuh no it means nothing because the Bible is a bunch of crap" or "no man knows the day or the hour" because I have already heard the same cliches from both sides of the issue here. Assuming that the Biblical prophecies were correct, does that mean that if we see Damascus falling we can assume that Israel will be in trouble soon and God will have to send Jesus to establish His Kingdom because the time is at hand?

'Damascus' in the context of scripture must be interpreted allegorically with this passage. 'Damascus' refers to 'Wealth'. It is the 'where the money is at'. The 'rich land', That is the allegorical interpretation.

Paul was on the 'Road to Damascus' when he was 'knocked down' by the LORD and converted. He was, like most of us, trying to get ahead in the world. That is living on 'the Road to Damascus'.

The destruction of Damascus would therefore be better understood as the 'fall of the monetary system of the rich'. When the economy goes, that is the 'Fall of Damascus' , so to speak.

That would be one allegorical analysis, anyway.

I would say OP from a Literailst point of view, that your analysis is correct.

From a Figurative point of view as someone just said, it may be referring to another event...

But most prophecy is interpreted in the Literal sense. I believe that if you see these things coming to pass you can honestly assume that those who created the story are now working to make it appear that it is happening for the total control of the masses.

Zech.9[1] The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.

Ever heard of the 'land of Hadrach'?

Wherever it is it is resting in Damascus.

HADRACH
ha'-drak, had'-rak (chadhrakh): "The land of Hadrach" is mentioned only once in Scripture (Zechariah 9:1), and there it is grouped with Damascus, Hamath, Tyre and Sidon. It may be safely identified with the "Hatarikka" of the Assyrian inscriptions, against which Assur-dan III made expeditions in his 1st (772 B.C.), 8th and 18th years. It also appears in inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser III. They place it in the North of Lebanon."

Isaiah 17

"17 * The aburden of bDamascus.

Behold, Damascus is taken away cfrom being a city,

And it shall be a ruinous heap.

2 dThe cities of Aroer are forsaken:

They shall be for flocks,

Which eshall lie down, and efnone shall make them afraid.

3 gThe fortress also shall hcease from Ephraim,

And gthe kingdom from bDamascus, and the remnant of Syria:

They shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts. "

Kwisatz Haderach

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For the related Hebrew expression, see Kefitzat Haderech.

In Frank Herbert's fictional Dune universe, Kwisatz Haderach (pronounced /ˈkwɪsɑːts ˈhɑːdəræk/[1]) is a term which refers to a prophesied messiah and superbeing. In the series, the matriarchal Bene Gesserit hope to create a male who can survive the deadly ritual spice agony that changes a capable female acolyte into a Reverend Mother. A female Bene Gesserit is limited:

She ... was confronted immediately with a cellular core, a pit of blackness from which she recoiled. That is the place where we cannot look, she thought. There is the place the Reverend Mothers are so reluctant to mention — the place where only a Kwisatz Haderach may look.[2]

The Sisterhood theorize that such a male would possess absolute prescience, seeing all possible futures thus being able to cause select threads of time to be realized through manipulation. The Bene Gesserit intend to use their Kwisatz Haderach to make their order more powerful than the other factions within the Old Empire.

In the texts, Herbert also refers to the Kwisatz Haderach as "the one who can be many places at once." He provides the following definition in Terminology of the Imperium, the glossary of the 1965 novel Dune:

KWISATZ HADERACH: "Shortening of the Way." This is the label applied by the Bene Gesserit to the unknown for which they sought a genetic solution: a male Bene Gesserit whose organic mental powers would bridge space and time.[3]

Interpreted Allegorically? Says who?

That is the problem with what have been called the religionuts. Everything supposedly has a different meaning than what is plainly written. Bible specifically states "Damascus will be flattened" yet you folks put more spin on scripture than the liberal pundits do on the daily news...

If you want to understand scripture, hand your bible to a 12 yo and ask them what they think. The answers will surprise you, and it is no wonder that Yeshua stated that we "must become like little children" to enter the kingdom... You keep looking for hidden meanings contained within the literal truth staring you right in the face... Children take things at face value...
