The Damascus Prophecy
by William Frederick; M. Div.

Below is a post I wrote last November regarding Damascus. In light of the latest developments (HT Karen) between Syria and Israel at the links to follow I felt I should repost it.

5/5/13 BREAKING ALERT!! Russian sources: Predicted full-scale Middle East hostilities involving Israel erupting in the coming hours!

Israel Attack is a Declaration of War

Here is the original post from November;

Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Many of you are familiar with this prophecy, some of you may not be. It was spoken by God through the prophet Isaiah and will be fulfilled. The prophecy is clear that one day Damascus, which many claim to be the oldest continually inhabited city in the world, will no longer be a city—it shall become a ruinous heap.

As you are also probably aware; Damascus is in Syria, and the Syrian government has been in a bitter war with “rebels” or “opposition forces” as they are called, for many months. As you are also probably aware, Syria has stock piles of chemical weapons. So far none of these have been reported as being used in the conflict. Syria’s President Assad has threatened to unleash a brutal attack--which could include chemical weapons--on the Mid East, and especially Israel, if he feels he will face a loss to the rebels.

The Syrian ruler and his spokesmen have frequently threatened since the eruption of the popular insurrection that if Assad had his back to the wall, the entire Middle East would go up in flames, especially Israel.

How is Assad doing against the rebels? The quoted article above reports that rebel forces have just taken out a major radar site critical to Assad and his forces leaving him severely compromised.

Western military sources told debkafile that the destruction of this vital facility has blinded the two eyes which Syrian air, air defense and missile forces had trained on Israel. It has therefore crippled, though not completely dismantled, Bashar Assad’s ability to got to war against Israel, Jordan or Saudi Arabia.

The same article also reports that NATO has started the process to install patriot missile batteries in Turkey to be used against the Syrian government and help protect rebel forces. And it is also being reported that NATO is supplying the Rebels with tanks, which some are saying is a declaration of war.

It appears that Assad is being “cornered.” Will he unleash his chemical weapons and carry out his threat that the “Middle East would go up in flames, especially Israel?” If he does I could easily see how Israel could respond with nuclear weapons so that “Damascus is taken away from being a city" and made a ruinous heap.

Remember also that Syria and Iran are allies, and let’s not forget about Russia too, it is easy to see how the Syrian war could set off WWIII in the very near future, especially since we are in a prophetic time frame in which WWIII is likely to begin.

Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Update 11/28: As reported in the comments of the last post Fox News is reporting that Iran was resupplying Syria with weapons while all eyes were focused on the Gaza conflict. Here is the video link;

Update 5/6/13

I received the following email and wanted to pass it along.




You will recall the email put out over a year ago regarding a prophetic dream of a cruise missile attack against Tel Aviv. Please read all of this report and let me know if you will be praying. Here is the prophetic dream sent over a year ago... you will also read below why this being sent NOW: 

In the wee hours of this morning He sent me a very vivid dream. Let me give you the pertinent parts.
I was in Israel, I believe at Ben Gurion Airport (today is the 38th anniversary of the passing of Ben Gurion and He brought this dream today) andBibi Netanyahu was speaking to me and was expressing thanks for the intercessions that have come forth for him. ‘This has kept me’ he said.

Then suddenly a tall woman with long black hair in a red dress captured his attention and he followed after her. He went into a small conference room and was not seen again.

Suddenly a man was speaking to me and spoke of a man from CHINA and mentioned $500,000. 

At that moment I looked up and a large dark gun-metal grey cruise missile of some kind came overhead... the reason I believe it was a ‘cruise missile’ is because of its wings. I could clearly see the red-orange fire from the rear propellant... blazing hot. (end of dream) (end quote)

As a result of this dream and the clear message that Israel will be threatened with missile attack, you may recall we have also seen the David’s Sling anti missile attack technology being developed and we knew He had us praying into that. 

BUT THE TIME TO PRAY IS NOW... we cannot wait until 2014! We need to pray in the Root and Offspring of David, Yehoshua, now to see this threat stopped. 

There were several elements in the dream including Binyamin Netanyahu and CHINA. 

The dream also showed a live, up close and personal look at a cruise missile headed toward Tel Aviv. And in the dream Binyamin Netanyahu turned and followed a Chinese woman into ‘talks’ of some kind. 

NOW we have seen Israel target military sites in Syria as Iranian munitions were trying to funnel their way through to Hizbullah in Lebanon. 

SO we have this scenario developing where Syria/Iran/Hizbullah are highly motivated to lob one into Israel, and Tel Aviv has been an oft cited target. 

Further, the prophetic dream He sent caused me to research cruise missile capability inside of Hizbullah, and you may recall the article found... here is an excerpt: 

Terror With Chinese Missiles

Charles R. Smith
Wednesday, July 19, 2006

Terrorism took a new and bold step during the battle between Israel and Lebanese-based Hezbollah. The terror group raised the technological stakes by scoring a direct hit on an Israeli warship with a Chinese made radar guided cruise missile.

Press reports cited by the AP stated the missile was an "Iranian-made C-802 missile." The missile struck the Spear, an Israeli Saar 5-class missile ship. The warship is one of the most technologically advanced in the Israeli fleet, equipped with an array of high-tech weapons and sophisticated electronic counter-measures designed to defeat incoming missiles. ..

... The so-called Iranian made missile was actually manufactured in China and purchased by Iran. Iran recently test fired an air-launched version of the Chinese C-802 cruise missile, named "Noor" by Iran. The launch platform was believed to be a Russian Mil-17 helicopter. (end quote) 

The $500,000 in the dream pointed to the real time cost of securing a modest cruise missile. There was much more in the article including the fact that Israel herself sold capabilities to China which in turn appears to have found their way into Iran’s hands. Further that Chinese made cruise missiles have gone circuitously through Iran, and have found themselves nesting in Hizbullah strongholds. They are now highly motivated to use what they have, so we must pray. 

What has caused me to know it is time to put out this warning now is the following... during this time, right now, as Syria/Iran/Hizbullah would like to retaliate from the north, BIBI IS GOING TO CHINA FOR TALKS, just as in the dream, at the same time that the cruise missile was headed to Tel Aviv... today:

Despite tension in north, PM flies to China

LAST UPDATED: 05/05/2013 

Netanyahu leaves after brief delay for security cabinet meeting; China talks to include topics of Iran and Syria. 

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu set off for his five-day trip to China Sunday evening, despite the heightened tension following reports that Israel carried out attacks against Syria on Sunday.
Netanyahu went to the airport directly for a security cabinet meeting called urgently to discuss the developments in Syria. Netanyahu’s departure was delayed by two hours to allow for the meeting. (end quote) 

One thing to note. In the dream, the missile was identified as a cruise missile because of its wings.

But He is saying to pray that all Israel gets under HIS WINGS as in PSALM 91.

Further, remember in the dream this all took place in the Tel Aviv Airport, and Bibi was right then leaving to talk to CHINA. It is happening right now... so...
Let us pray: 

1. PRAY PSALM 91 OVER ISRAEL, sent below.
2. Pray for protection in Israel against all cruise missile attacks. Pray that He will ‘reveal, expose, uncover’ where the missiles are and will ‘move and remove’ them through targeted IDF strikes as this ‘heavenly intelligence’ is revealed. 

3. Pray that He will protect Bibi Netanyahu and send him back to Israel ahead of time... may He send him back right now... and give him wisdom, insight, LEADING by HIS SPIRIT. 

4. That America will come beside Israel right now in all manner of ways: intelligence gathering and sharing, military help of all kinds including equipment, statements of support (as BO recently did), no ‘behind Israel’s backs’ shenanigans, Congressional statements of support and help and more. US Navy positioned to dissuade any retaliations and to discourage any more Iranian transport of munitions for Syria and/or Hizbullah. And dissuading Russia and CHINA through back channels. And anything else He shows you. 

5. That He will continue to protect all Israel from all attacks of all kinds every where. Including attacks against Jews in all places. 

We must especially target 1 and 2 right now... but we must pray all 5 points. Let us believe Him that this possible attack will be completely prevented... that is why He sends prophetic dreams... so we can intercede. 

Remember Bibi Netanyahu in the dream thanking me for praying and helping keep him. This was from HIM letting us know that intercession will be needed during this time. 

Again, the attack against Syria and their wanting to retaliate from the north, especially through Hizbullah, and then Bibi Netanyahu planning right now to go to China, are the elements that have brought the timing. 

We need to pray now. 

Please let me know if you will take up this cause in prayer. 

In His shalom and for His purposes,


“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Who abides under the shadow of the Almighty,

He is saying of YHWH, ‘My refuge and my stronghold, My Elohim, in whom I trust!’ 

For He delivers you from the snare of a trapper, from the destructive pestilence. 

He covers you with His feathers, and under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armor. 

You are not afraid of the dread by night, of the arrow that flies by day, 

Of the pestilence that walks in darkness, of destruction that ravages at midday. 

A thousand fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it does not come near you. 

Only with your eyes you look on, and see the reward of the wrong ones. 

Because you have made YHWH – My refuge, the Most High – your dwelling place, 

No evil befalls you, and a plague does not come near your tent; 

For He commands His messengers concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. 

They bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. 

You tread upon lion and cobra, Young lion and serpent you trample under foot. 

Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name. 

When he calls on Me, I answer him; I am with him in distress; I deliver him and esteem him.

With long life I satisfy him, And show him My deliverance (‘YESHUA’!).’” 

Psalm 91



  1. Thank you again William! My friend received many confirmations today from the Lord, "Get Ready" "It's time to Go"
    He sent me this video and WOW the Holy Spirit had me buzzing all over! Please check it out and be encouraged!!!!

  2. Thank You for the time that you put into this. What if it turned out that Ezekiel 38,39 was really a description of an invasion of the new Jer-USA-lem? The land of unwalled villages is not really a description of anywhere in the middle east.

  3. This could very well be the "indicator" God gave me in a dream/vision I had in January, 1975--about 7 weeks after I became a Christian. At that time I asked God how I would know when it was the beginning of the End. He told me to "watch China." I understood that this was also a warning. Everything else He told me has come to pass, so I am thinking that this will too.

    1. THX for sharing Kay, I also believe that China will be a key player in the end times.

  4. Netanyahu is a globalist and is doing the wishes of his masters. William knows as well as anyone and probably better than most that their plan is to have a 3rd great war involving Islam, Israel and the west.

    (Joh 17:9) I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

    (Rom 9:1) I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

    (Rom 9:2) That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. (for Israel according to the flesh)
    (Rom 9:6) Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
    (Rom 9:7) Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
    (Rom 9:27) Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
    (Rom 9:28) For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
    (Rom 9:29) And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.

    (Rom 11:25) For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
    (Rom 11:26) And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

    (Rev 7:2) And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
    (Rev 7:3) Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
    (Rev 7:4) And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

    I can pray that their government stop following the globalist agenda so that those who belong to God can live in peace and that he will strengthen and help such ones.

    1. There are definitely many forces at work and many are being deceived into conforming with satan's plan. I pray many would repent.

  5. Interesting comments about the timing of Ezekiel 38. It is very difficult to place this chapter. However, just in reading it as is, first comes this massive assault and then comes what appears to be the messianic reign. Un-walled villages? I read long ago that modern warfare makes walls irrelevant which is true. However, in context it appears to indicate a sense of the land inhabitants of being secure. That's how I see it anyway. Perhaps this coalition attack is part of the gathering for the battle of Armageddon or it will occur before then.

    1. There is language in EZ 38 that matches closely with the language describing the 6th seal.

      19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

      20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

      Thus I place it just after the rapture.

  6. can anyone tell me about the "Day of Jacob's Troubles"?

    1. I believe it will most likely be the antichrist war against Jews and Christians after he takes over the world at the midpoint.

      13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

      14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Rev 12

  7. I am happy to come across your site. God has spoken to me through dreams throughout my life. So I take them very seriously. I had a prophetic dream about Damascus in March 2012. It literally changed the path of my family (as we relocated 1000 miles away from the CA city we were living in) Without writing out my full dream I can give you a quick summary of what I got from it. I had a terrifying dream in which all kinds of lawlessnes, destruction, and evil had taken over the city that I lived. In my dream my family was being terrorized. I woke up, obviously shaken, and asked God what that was all about. I heard one word "Damascus." Honestly I didn't even know where Damascus was at the time & there wasn't much news coverage in it at that point. A few days later their was a bombing in Damascus. I began to pray & read my bible where I discovered the prophecies concerning Damascus. It didn't take long for me to connect the dots that Iran, Russia, & China backed the current Syrian regime & the possibility of WWIII beginning. Over the last year I have watched how the US & Israel are moving. I believe I was given this dream for several reasons. One: to pray for the women & children of Syria who are being terrorized as they were in my dream. Two: to pray for the Christians who will be slaughtered in this conflict for loving our God. Three: As a timeline and warning for us in the United States. As we see the destruction of Damascus nearing we will also see a shifting in the United States. One of lawlessness & terror.

    As I stated previously this dream was real & convincing enough that my family moved out of California and 1000 miles away. Within a few months of this dream my husband & I both got jobs in another state (where jobs are hard to come by), had housing (also hard to find), and all on a tiny non existent budget. God obviously opened the doors for us to move. I began praying after this dream that God would position my family where I could raise my young children in safety. Needless to say I watch Syria & Damascus.

    1. THX for sharing, Damascus is definitely a major prophecy item to be watched. Just a few days ago I had a dream of riots and lawlessness coming to where I live, I had the dream in 3 parts waking up between each part, In one part I was prepared and was able to hold my own, in another part I was not prepared and was overcome, In another part I was prepared but others were not and was overcome. The message to me was be prepared for lawlessness.

  8. Thanks for this nice blog post about the prophecy.
