Trend Update: Assyrian Empire/Damascus, November 2014

ISIS and Al Qaeda have agreed to play nice and stop fighting each other, allegedly. Both parties want to take out the President Assad of Syria. Both parties want control of Syria and specifically Damascus. They have agreed in part to unite against their enemies. That would also include the United States and Israel.

If one does not think ISIS is serious about Damascus, consider this. ISIS has announced they are going to start minting coins of gold, silver, and copper. The coins worth will be backed by the physical properties of the coin itself. Their money will be actually worth something other than the good word of any particular government.

Granted, they have to accumulate the precious metals for this undertaking. The plan is to have seven different coins. One of the gold coins implies world domination. One of the silver coins has the white minaret of Damascus. See the link below for the design of the coins.

Remember, there is an end times figure the Bible refers to as the Assyrian. He launches an invasion of Israel from the north in Damascus. Isaiah 10:28-32 describes an invasion of Judah from the north to the south. These verses describe the Assyrian advance toward Jerusalem. All the cities named are within a three-hour march of Jerusalem (Ryrie Study Notes). He is stopped short and north of Jerusalem.

Isaiah 10:28-32 He has come against Aiath, he has passed through Migron; at Michmash he deposited his baggage. They have gone through the pass, saying, “Geba will be our lodging place.” Ramah is terrified, and Gibeah of Saul has fled away. Cry aloud with your voice, O daughter of Gallim! Pay attention, Laishah and wretched Anathoth! Madmenah has fled. The inhabitants of Gebim have sought refuge. Yet today he will halt at Nob; He shakes his fist at the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
