With the US having already threatened Russia before this latest alleged chemical attack in Syria it seems like an absolutely stupid move by the Syrian Government to actually use chemical weapons against the rebel army in Douma. If a bully has the power to destroy your country such as America does, and then that bully threatens to destroy you if you use a certain kind of weapon, do you think that the leader of that Government would go ahead and sign the death notice for his country? Not likely!!
It is easy to see that this so called attack in Douma, Syria is a deliberately staged or fake attack fabricated entirely by those against Assad in order to get the USA to bomb the heck out of Damascus.
It is also a not so hidden warning to Russia that America will hit them hard also if they get in the way.
The city of Douma in Syria just happens to be pronounced the same as the Russian Duma (the Government)
Douma: Wikipedia:- (Arabic: دوما Dūmā)
Duma in Russian means “to think or consider.”
I am sure the Russians are doing some deep thinking right now as to what they should do if the US keeps it’s threat to attack Damascus and Russia.
I previously wrote that God is luring the Bully nations into a trap for their own defeat.
Jer 50:23 How the hammer of the whole earth has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for you;
Jer 50:24 You have indeed been trapped, O Babylon, And you were not aware; You have been found and also caught, Because you have contended against the LORD.
Jer 50:25 The LORD has opened His armory, And has brought out the weapons of His indignation; For this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts In the land of the Chaldeans.
Jer 50:26 Come against her from the farthest border; Open her storehouses; Cast her up as heaps of ruins, And destroy her utterly; Let nothing of her be left.
Jer 50:27 Slay all her bulls, Let them go down to the slaughter. Woe to them! For their day has come, the time of their punishment.
God says He has laid a snare for Babylon because she has been proud against the LORD (Jer 50:29) The Babylonian Empire which is headed by the USA and it’s allies in nearly every country are falling into God’s snare. The outcome shall see the Babylonian Buffaloes humbled and put down. The time of their rule has finished! The Kingdom of the Saints of the Most High God has come.
The very pride of believing that God is on their side in all that they do shall be their undoing. The hammer of all the earth. Yes yes…ho hum…so America is mighty …big deal! They have been allowed to become mighty so as to be God’s enforcer of prophetic judgements on different nations etc…but that time is come to an end.
This latest attack real or fake is a direct threat against Russia —Douma/Duma. On a chess board this is an aggressive move to destroy your opponent. What will Russia do? This is a showdown. Threats have been made by both sides.
Of course both words also sound like the English word DOOM.
What does the Bible tell us about Damascus. Isaiah 17 predicts that Damascus will cease from being a city and the picture the prophet paints is akin to a nuclear event or maybe continued bombing campaign. In any case Damascus is doomed. Is the Russian Douma also doomed?
Isa 17:1 The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.
I do not support the modern Zionist Sate nor their methods for conquering the Gentiles. Just because a Prophet saw destruction upon a place does not mean God is doing it or that He is on Israel’s side.
