Discussion for Isaiah 17

    Thank You Father our Lord our Saviour, Christ Jesus, for Your Word. Amen. The prophecy of this chapter is happening today before our very eyes. Syria is destroyed, people are fleeing when allowed and the United Nations are rushing to the diplomacy table, appearing to seek peace. Arise LORD and have mercy on the people: all for Your glory. Let our days here be few. In Christ Jesus we live! Amen
  • This verse is related too this verse...are days on earth are like grass and wild flowers, we bloom then die.

    I am for sure that this Chapter is about the woe upon this earth. That we to need listen to God so that we will know what is about to come to us so we can be ready for him that he will fight for us If we are for his Son Jesus and have his blood apply to our heart.

    It 's 3 30AM 04 11 14 The Holy Spirit spoke to me concerning Chapter 17 of Isaiah and to look at it from the standpoint of the Psalms 83 war. Chronology is a major problem when trying to line up the wars mentioned in Psalms, Isaiah and Ezekiel 38,39. The fact that Psalms 83 might trigger the Rapture and the 83 war along with the start of the Tribulation Period. It seems that the 83 war could be tied in with the facts of Isaiah 17...I am still praying about under standing the three places in Scripture of wars concerning eschatology. Any comments would be greatly appreciated...G d Bless....JEB
