The Damascus Domino and the Rapture

Whether you believe we have entered a third world war or not, it is evident that the dominoes are set and in motion towards the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 38 prophecy of the attack on Israel and events that will lead to the snatching away of the Overcoming Church Bride. As our Brother at End Times Darkness Descending blogsite noted--


. . . Damascus is missing from the hoard of Israel’s invaders.  This is persuasive evidence that the ancient city is destroyed prior to the coming of the Russian attack and invasion of Israel described in the great prophecy of the Gog/Magog war in Ezekiel 38 & 39.  Perhaps the invasion is even a response to a sort of Israeli nuclear self defense against Syria.  In any event, Isaiah 17 also pictures a coming invasion that greatly resembles the invasion by Gog in Ezekiel 38.  It’s concluding verses suggest the horror of modern warfare … PROPHECY ALERT: COUNTDOWN TO WORLD WAR 3 – THE SOON DESTRUCTION OF DAMASCUS


On March 1, 2022, The Watchman with Erick Stakelbeck reported that despite their current understanding that Israel can strike in Syria to protect herself, Russia announced that it did not recognize Israel’s control over the Golan Heights. I believe this has emboldened Iran (who has a stronghold in Damascus, Syria) and may force Israel’s hand to be the agent to fulfill Isaiah 17:1--


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


The Exodus of the Overcoming Church


This led me to look again at a study I did of Isaiah 17, which I shared in a September 2, 2020, article--Events Before the Rapture.


In that little study of Isaiah, I saw prophetic foreshadowing linking JACOB’S TROUBLE and the END OF THE SUMMER HARVEST with the demise of DAMASCUS and perhaps a link between the fall of DAMASCUS and BABYLON. It would have behooved me to first read End Times Darkness Descending’s article posted two years prior. He wrote:


. . . the sequence of events begins in Isaiah 26 verse 17 alluding to Israel’s rebirth as a nation in 1948.  It has generally been a matter of debate within prophetic circles on whether or not the church will still be on Earth to see the destruction of Damascus. . . When examining Isaiah’s sequence of events, it would seem to strongly indicate that the sequence puts its destruction immediately after the rapture in close proximity. Isaiah Chronicles the End Times Timing of Damascus Destruction Solved


So our Brother at ETDD makes the conjecture that the Rapture will likely occur before Damascus is destroyed. In Events Before the Rapture:


. . . I propose that there may be a link between the fall of DAMASCUS and BABYLON.


Revelation Chapter 18 contains the prophecy related to the destruction of Babylon. I agree with James Smith and others who believe that America is part of the Babylon system and it must fall for the New World Order to rise: 


James Smith’s wonderful video in which he harmonizes the Scriptures related to "The Sea and the Waves Roaring" shows there is a great convergence of destruction that includes America on the Day the Lord comes for us! [Excerpt from Prepare to Meet Your Maker!]


The point being that the Rapture of the Overcoming Church Bride will occur at the same time as the destruction comes. . .


If all this is a prophetic insight into our very last days, we will soon see converging events leading to the fall of America and Damascus with the glorious Rapture event before God intervenes in the coming Ezekiel 38 war.


The current United States administration has been the perfect wrecking crew to begin the destruction of America. It will most likely be nuclear weapons that will finish it up, HOWEVER, those who are in Christ have nothing to fear.

Dreams and Visions


I have written many times before of dreams, words, and visions Brethren have shared where the Lord has shown nuclear warfare occurring simultaneously with the Rapture. (See Endtime Dream & Vision YTC video Dreams & Visions of Nuclear War Rapture Resurrection Event! Evacuation of NY Has Begun! for a compilation of some of these dreams.) Scripture promises an escape before the sudden destruction of the Day of the Lord (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).


The Scriptures indicate a GREAT HEAVENLY EXCHANGE occurs for in Verse 5 of Revelation 12 the Man Child is caught up--harpaz┼Ź-ed or RAPTURED--BEFORE the Dragon devours him but SIMULTANEOUSLY with the Dragon casting the stars/fallen angels down to earth! (Job 38:7 alludes to angels as stars.)


So, Brethren, “when they come down, we go up”! Many brethren have been shown this by the Spirit of the Lord. What is coming down has been revealed as: missiles, asteroids/meteorites, and fallen angels. This leads me to believe there will be a Great Convergence on the Day of The Rapture of fiery meteorites falling along with earthly and heavenly war. [Excerpts from The Revelation 12 Dragon and The Rapture]


Stephen Dexter shared a dream he believes is from the Lord Jesus Christ in his 20-minute video posted March 6, 2022--Prophetic Dream (Israel/Iran) and WW3 (Russia/Ukraine). At about the 10-minute mark in his video Stephen tells his dream given to him a few years ago before the plandemic. It was Wintertime in the dream and thousands of people (who were not wearing masks) came running by and told him volcanoes were erupting somewhere. His Dad shows up in the dream and says there was a 9/11-type attack on Israel adding, “So much for the peace deal happening”. Stephen replied, “That’s going to be the thing that forces them to have to sign a peace deal.”

Our Brother in Christ believes there is a high possibility that we have entered the time of his dream coming to pass! As I write this article, there is less than two weeks left of Winter (Spring begins March 21). Stephen was also shown that when there is a full moon over Israel something significant will occur. The last full moon over Israel within this Hebrew (religious) year will appear on March 18.


Stephen concluded that if something significant does happen around this time, it would be great confirmation that we are going to go Home this year--he projects by June 2022!

Lyn, during the pause in your writings I was imagining your fingers trembling with undeniable urgency. Glad you came back on. The pictures I saw just yesterday of snow on Purim in Israel gave me quite a chill when I heard what Dexter had to say. Talk about cusps!

Lyn Melvin said...

Ozark, dear Brother Tony, somehow your Comment was not automatically sent to my email (as Blogger is supposed to do), so I just saw it today. Blessings & Shalom to you as we take the Lord's hand on this wild end times ride!

CY, thank you for thinking of me. Have taken a much needed break from writing. My articles may be fewer and farther between but my research and collective thinking continues LOL!

After leaving a Comment at his website letting him know I referred to his blog in the above article, our Brother at ETDD wrote this:

I just read your latest article and a couple links you had within it. It is a interesting scenario for one glaring reason (at least for me): I’ve long been talking about the evidence of America’s role in prophecy as the Vineyard of Matthew 21 – or its close connection to it as you may know. That role and purpose was to be a nation that would produce the fruits of the kingdom of Heaven.

That said, it rather interesting that the Apostle Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus occurred when Christ suddenly appeared to him. It was Paul who was first given the revelation of the rapture and he is the Apostle that represents missionary work. This is what the Apostle Paul’s assignment was. With America being so tightly associated with the Vineyard prophecy of Matthew 21, its assignment has been to be the spiritual lighthouse to the world. So when that assignment is completed at an appointed time, the Lord shall “appear” once again. The idea is that Damascus is the beginning of the cause of evangelism, while America will be the end of the cause of evangelism. So here in the end times when the rapture is ready to occur, the idea that Damascus would fall in one night at the same time that America falls immediately before or during the rapture certainly is quite prophetically interesting. It really does fit. As you say, a convergence. It does seem that we have a fall of Damascus/America rapture theme going on here.

Church Age conversion through evangelism starts with Damascus and ends with Damascus along with America’s Vineyard theme.

Interesting indeed.
To understand more about the Vineyard Prophecy ETDD refers to, go to his latest article related to this at:

[My Comment continued:]

Within the BEAR PROPHECY article is a link to a previous article explaining "America And The Great Vineyard Prophecy". Here is an excerpt:

"(Isaiah 5:1-7).

It is clear in this prophecy that, as a result of Israel’s rejection of Jesus Christ as the promised Messiah, that God was going to take the vineyard from Israel and transplant it to the Gentiles. . .

. . . let’s look at the . . . prophecy that was introduced by Jesus approximately 2000 years ago concerning the transplanting of the vineyard from Israel to the Gentiles …

“Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof” (Matthew 21:33-43)."

An interesting event happened to me personally yesterday regarding that Bear Rapture prophecy I've been hammering on. I've just completed an update section to the article at the end titled ""The 'Black Bear Diner' And Globalist’s Predictive Programming? Russia Conducting Nuclear Evacuation Drills And Demands Return of Alaska And Part of Northern California."

Black Bear "Diner" you say? Yep ... "Diner" - lol. Take a look at Mt. Shasta on google maps and you will see what I mean. Covered in the update.


Lyn Melvin said...

ETDD--Thanks, Brother, for sharing your bear diner experience! It may or may not be balaamically prophetically significant but I agree that with God there are no such things as coincidence!

In the prophecies I have read and trust related to Russia's invasion of America, the West coast of the USA is mentioned but no specific city. On the East coast only NYC is specifically mentioned. HENRY GRUVER was given many specifics by the Lord of America's invasion. He was taken to Astoria, Washington, and saw a Chinese invasion attack by sea (

DUMITRU DUDUMAN and DAVID WILKERSON were also shown the attack on America. (For more info see the links in my article The Revelation 12 Galactic Federation, The Great Re:Set, and The Rapture
