Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you; O Caanan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity. I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of hosts. The Lord will be terrible unto them: for He will famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen. Ye Ethiopians also,shall be slain by my sword. And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like the wilderness.

Notice that since Ashkelon is now in the hands of Israel it is protected. Ashdod and Ekron are also in Israeli territory at the moment. We will see if it stays in the hands of Israel and what happens as the two-state agreement unfolds and as more terrorism advances. To clarify some Philistine is known today as Palestine which was also associated with the coast dwellers the Cherethites. Moab and Ammon are currently in Jordan's possession. Ethiopia would be considered modern day Sudan and Ethiopia. Assyria of course is now Syria and part of Iraq, and Nineveh is in northern Iraq near Mosul, which is currently under the control of Isis. The area known as Assyria in the days of the bible, especially in the Old Testament, is now pretty much the area known as the caliphate belonging to Isis. It included Syria and northern Iraq stretching down to Babylon. Just like in Jonathan Cahn's book " The Harbinger", The Assyrians are once again the terrorists.

List of some of the deaths in Syria alone and these don't include all categories of people: only innocent civilians.
Other estimates range from 140,200 to 330,380. Except for the SNHR figure, which excludes pro-government and ISIS fighters, all of the following totals include civilians, rebels and government forces:
Over 9 million have fled becoming refugees and a great percentage of them dying trying to escape the country.
Starvation is killing even more.Syrian devastation by sword and desolated areas( warning some photos are graphic)Kobani desolation, dry like a wildernessDamascus, Aleppo, more destroyed Zephaniah 2:13
Over half this prophecy is already almost complete and the other half is obvious to see coming or started. This is explained in Zephaniah 1:14-18 to be the end times and warn that the day of the Lord is near and hasteth greatly. Wake up people . TIME IS UP! If you have not given your heart to Jesus and surrendered your life to Him fully and live a life becoming of that then you will not be safe from the tragedy that is coming. The day of the Lord is at hand. Tribulation is about to start and if your name is not in the book of life then God himself will see to it you are deceived into following the devil to your own demise in the lake of fire.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-15
You must surrender your heart, soul, mind, body, plans for your life, children, everything to Jesus immediately. Jesus loves you and does not want to lose one soul. He is waiting. Come as you are. He will take it all: the good, the bad, and even the ugly. He will rid your life of everything that is not of Him and you must let Him, but when you do you will live forever with Him. We will all live forever, the question is where will you call home? Heaven or hell... God bless you and may Jesus keep you.
