Be careful with all the talk about Isaiah 17 and Damascus future prophecy stuff in “American Christendom”. Read the chapter again and see if it was for a future modern time like ours. This falls right in line with Islamic Eschatology not Christian Biblical Eschatology. Umayyid Mosque…do you know what it is and where its at? So you understand the significance of the 3 Minarets that surround it? Did you know in some Islamic circles, Isa or lets say Esau (there version of Jesus) is to come to the Minaret of Jesus, their prophet (not Messiah), after Damascus has been “destroyed”. To then meet up with the Mahdi and conquer Jerusalem. Did you realize this? Don’t buy into the hype. Its all false.
