Damascus Will Be Hit First, Then Iran Will Shake.


On April 14 2015 I saw a vision. I was awake, but my eyes were closed, so I saw this with my heart.

I saw Jesus usher me through a white threshold into a great expanse. First, I looked to the left and saw a scene taking place behind a wall where smoke was rising. There had been a major explosion, so massive it reminded me of a mushroom cloud.

I heard: “Death, destruction, embitterment, chaos, disorder.”

Then I heard the word “ka-yed”, which I initially thought was spelled Quayed. See the following definition.

When a smoking pipe’s contents have been reduced to complete ash it is said to be kayed. (S0urce: Urbandictionary.com)

In the Arabic language, the word qayid means commander or leader. (Source: Google Translate)

Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant in Iran

Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant in Iran

Then I heard “Iran”. I felt led to understand that the shaking or explosion that I saw behind the wall would impact the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, which I later found is located in southwestern Iran. Iran spent over 3 billion euros to produce this power plant with the help of specialists from Russia and Germany. The plant began producing power for Iran’s power grid in September 2013. (Source: Wikipedia)

Damascus was also brought to my mind. Damascus is the capital city of Syria.

I searched for “Ka-yed” in Iran and found five Iranian cities include the name Qaed. One of them, Qaed-e Ebrahimi, is located in Bushehr Province in southwestern Iran, very close to the Bushehr Nuclear plant. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Lord did not give me any further understanding about kayed or qaed, so this is purely speculation, but it could be that there would either be an earthquake or some kind of bomb that could impact the Bushehr Nuclear Plant.

After seeing this wall to my left, I was led to Psalm 53.

“The fool says in His heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good. God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on God. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them. Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!” (Psalm 53:1-6)

In the vision, I then looked straight ahead of me and saw a picture of another wall and a gate.  I saw a crown of gold behind the gate and I knew that this was Jerusalem. Then I heard Leviticus 26:1-13.

‘If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and you will eat all the food you want and live in safety in your land. “ ‘I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country. You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you. “‘I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you. You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new. I will put my dwelling place among you, and I will not abhor you. I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high.” (Leviticus 26:3-13)

In the vision, I then looked to the right and saw a third wall. Behind the wall was a huge tree. I knew this tree was the Tree of life. It represented protection and provision. I knew there was good fruit in the tree. It was meant to be a covering for God’s people. I felt like God was showing me that it was a safe haven for His children. I heard 1 John 3 and Matthew 6.  I felt like God was saying that these were His instructions and His promise to His children.

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” (1 John 3:1)

On October 1 2015 at 3:00 am I heard the following word from the Lord, which I believe was related to the vision of the three walls.

“This is what I have to say to the nations. My anger burns against you. You have stepped aside and deserted My people in their hour of need. You have selfishly guarded your own self-interests in attempt to raise up greater riches for yourself.  I say to you, you will have nothing when I am done with you.  All will be laid waste. Lives will be lost. As you seek to protect yourselves, wolves creep in day by day and they will devour you without My hand of protection.  I have removed the hedge I placed around My people in THE nations because they no longer call me Lord. The voice of My people ceases to cry out to Me, and therefore you shall receive your due reward. I have spoken.

It is a time to draw ever closer to Me, the source and creator of life. There is a heartbeat that beats in time with Me. Seek to hear it.  Seek to be synchronized with it.  That heartbeat is Mine and it will ensure protection in the hour that is coming.

Those that hear My voice and follow My directions will make it through the dark and terrible day.  Those that seek self-reliance shall surely perish.  Oh America, a land that once was flowing with milk and honey, now all waters have been polluted with all kinds of perversion.  My disgust is great and I will hold back My wrath no more.

You sick generation of heathens. Even as my anger burns against you, I will be merciful.  I send out signs and warnings of that which is to come so that my children will turn to me and be spared.  Oh that they heed My warning.  It is not time to live for self.  It is time to live for life, the life I gave to you, the life I honor in you.  Those that lay down their life for My sake will prevail.  As you give your life to Me in this final hour, I give you eternal life in heaven with Me.  The glory that awaits you is beyond human understanding or description.

It is time to raise the banner.  I have sent out My flag-bearers and they are ready to begin marching in step.  When you see that which is out of place, that which does not belong, you will know.  It will turn your stomach sour and cause sweat to pool on your brow.

Damascus will be hit first, then Iran will shake.

I will cause the waters to pull back from the shores and to advance on the land with such fury that no eye has seen the heights the water will rise to.  I will lay waste to every scheme of the enemy of My people.”

A prophecy against Damascus:

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.” (Isaiah 17:1 NIV)

Just a quick update here. On Sunday January 1st, Iran had 3 earthquakes just miles from the Bushehr power plant at a depth of 6.2 miles and ranging in magnitude from 4.0 to 4.4. This is pretty strong for this reason. I do not think this s the fulfillment of this prophecy, but I continue to watch for signs as the Lord prompts me to, I believe we will seek Damascus “hit” even to a greater degree, and the Iran will have a massive shaking.

It is amazing and sobering to watch Bible prophecy be fulfilled before our very eyes. Damascus will go first. The creation and funding of Isis by the West has been exposed… and now we learn that Turkey is the one buying Isis oil. Yet Obama still insists on the removal of Assad… and Russia still insists that Assad will stay. Damascus is caught in the East-West cross-hairs. Keep in mind that Damascus is only about 35 miles from the Israeli border… and the mushroom cloud in Damascus will be visible from the Golan Heights. Obama is the puppet of the insane and evil… Russia has a hook in its jaw… and Israel needs our prayers. The start of the prophetic battle of Gog and MeGog is being shaped in our daily news. I know that it is essential that we keep our eyes on God… but the Bible also trains us to know the tricks and plans of our enemy… Lucifer. This week, I researched Albert Pike and his book “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rites of the Scottish Freemasonry”. After checking Wikipedia… I also came across the following article on Pikes vision of the three world wars: http://www.threeworldwars.com/albert-pike2.htm I only use the word vision because he did. We must understand that Albert Pike was an atheist and then a luciferian… however, I was amazed at the accuracy of his description of the three world wars. It was supposedly written in a letter in 1871. I am left wondering if Lucifer gave him a vision or if the NWO elites just adopted and implemented his plan. Either way… it is obvious that the NWO crowd is planning the demise of Israel and Christians. Jesus is our Refuge and Rock.

Providing an update: It’s getting prophetic up in here! Almost exactly 3 years ago, the Lord gave me a vision and spoke to me regarding destruction that was to come upon Damascus and Iran. We know that with the US/UK/France attack on Syria last week and threats coming from Russia against the US and Iran against Israel this week, that time is short.

“Damascus will be hit first, then Iran will shake.”

The full vision and prophetic word:

A 5.9 earthquake struck very close to the Iranian Nuclear power plant early this morning. I believe we are very close to the fulfillment of the word the Lord gave me almost exactly 3 years ago. A shaking much bigger than this is coming, either by an earthquake from the Lord, or from an Israeli attack on Iran.

Something to note and watch – In the last 5 days, there have been 4 earthquakes in the neighborhood of Bushehr. The magnitude ranges from a 3.5 to a 5.0, the greatest which occurred today, Dec. 4.

Everyone assumes that Damascus will be destroyed because Israel gets backed into a corner somehow. But suppose this plays out differently? Could someone, somehow, take out Damascus and then blame it on the Israelis? This would make Russia upset enough to do something against Israel, and the outrage in the Islamic world could bring enough temporary solidarity to form the alliances foretold for the Ezekiel 38 event.

But you’d really have to hate Israel to pull a stunt like that.

November 23, 2015 4:41 PM

Let’s not forget, if Damascus is destroyed according to Isaiah 17, that means Israel will be devastated also.
Lord have mercy and remember your covenant with your people.

This sentence too just before the last one I quoted above is very significant: “When you see that which is out of place, that which does not belong, you will know.” That appears to be a paraphrase of the warning of Christ regarding the abomination of desolation standing where it should not be – in the holy place.

This rings true. These sobering messages are becoming very specific: Damascus hit first and then we’re pointed to scripture – Isaiah 17. I read that chapter on the destruction of Damascus a few weeks ago and wondered if it had a future application. Damascus is one of the oldest cities in the world. I don’t know much of the history of Damascus but it would be interesting to check to see if it was ever desolate and uninhabited in the past. If there is no passed fulfillment it would be more evidence of a future fulfillment.

This sentence towards the end stood out to me: “It will turn your stomach sour and cause sweat to pool on your brow.” That’s an allusion to the last part of Revelation 10 and gives some sense of the magnitude and intensity of the coming ordeal.

Hi Mark… according to my resources… Damascus has been conquered numerous times but never completely destroyed. Isaiah 17 is unfulfilled. Check out the following video recently taken by a Russian drone:
Although this devastation is horrendous… it is still only part of the city and the prophecy is still unfulfilled.

Remember the “red line drawn in the sand”, the use of chemical weapons that Obama spoke about? The rebels finally said, ” If you don’t help us in this war, we’ll tell where the Sarin gas came from” (analysts say Saudi Arabia). I’m glad that Putin is standing up to Obama , but like Nebuchadnezzar, he seems to be the LORD’s war club to shatter the ungodly nations that knew better, yet had forsaken their GOD.
