The Bible prophesies that Damascus is to be reduced dramatically.
“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” (Isaiah 17:1).
Current world events show that that this prophecy is well underway to being fulfilled. The Syrian city of Aleppo is already being reduced to rubble.
That same passage speaks of the diaspora of the Syrians. Multitudes of Syrians are being scattered all over the Earth.
This is an email I wrote to someone asking questions about the word “spirit” and why it is sometimes lower case in the King James Bible (PCE). My correspondence here is a bit rough and ready, but that’s because it’s real.
Starting from a believing, assured view is going to be a helpful thing for you, rather than just “trying to figure” it out.
First, the examples like Judges 3:10 and many others are where a person has a specific anointing come upon them.
Whereas, the examples like Numbers 24:2 and 27:18 are, in the first reference, where a person has insight from God, but is exercising their own spirit, and in the second reference where Joshua was conformed to a godly heart and attitude.
