The United Nations estimated Wednesday that more than 60,000 people have been killed in Syria’s 21-month-old uprising against authoritarian rule, a toll one-third higher than what anti-regime activists had counted, according to the AP. The U.N. human rights chief called the toll “truly shocking.”

The Bible has a lot to say about the destruction of Damascus. Today we  hear from Ryan Mauro, founder of WorldThreats.com, and Radical Islam.0rg. and an intelligence analyst with the Asymmetric Warfare and Intelligence Center.

This is what God revealed to the prophet Isaiah:

“This message came to me concerning Damascus: ‘Look, Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted. Sheep will graze in the streets and lie down unafraid. There will be no one to chase them away. The fortified cities of Israel will also be destroyed, and the power of Damascus will end. The few left in Aram will share the fate of Israel’s departed glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 17:1-3
