The crisis in Syria has some people looking at end-times biblical prophecies.
Florida Today reports that some Christian bookstores are seeing an increase in sales of books related to prophecy and the end times.
But others say they don’t see any connection between what’s happening in Syria and predictions about the end of the world.
“In this case, Isaiah was predicting the demise of Damascus at the hands of Assyria in the eighth century,” Dr. Robert Mulholland, a retired professor of New Testament of Asbury Theological Seminary, told the Christian Post.
“If one wanted to try to make the case for Isaiah 17 predicting the end times, then Iran (the present day successor to Assyria) would be responsible for Damascus’ demise and not its primary ally,” he said.
May God bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May God make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
