Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron: But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad. I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD. (Amos 1:3-5)
Also, just as He cuts off nations because of their actions against Him, so shall He cut off people that reject GOD and His Word. Those that die without Jesus Christ will be cast away from His presence, because He is Holy and Righteous and cannot abide sIn in His presence. When He finally destroys Syria, it is only after every attempt for its people to repent and receive Him and they have refused to surrender to GOD. But that time is not yet, GOD is not willing that any should perish and so calls all men everywhere to repent, surrendering themselves to Him on His terms and receive His free gift of salvation while there is still time. Don't wait until a more convenient season that may never come. Receive Jesus Christ today.
And if you are already safe in His loving arms, tell someone else the message of Hope and redemption today.
