The Prophet did not have to say why Damascus would be ruined as the capital of Syria upon the return of the glorious
Messiah of Israel to set up his throne in Jerusalem. It is not necessary to think too hard of the advantage destroying the
capital of Syria would have to the thousand year reign of Christ upon the earth. From the first day, the antagonistic
Syrians who survive Armageddon and the burning of the earth with fire will have a much better attitude toward Israel
and the glorious Son of David reigning there and there will be peace upon the earth. The capital of their former sinful glory
will be gone.
