"Damascus & 1 Thessalonians 4:16"


Readers -

1 Thessalonians reads as follows:

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"

"http://www.biblewheel.com/GR/GR_Database.asp?bnum=52&cnum=4&vnum=16"

This is verse number

29620 (2962 x 10)

2962 = 1481 x 2 (1481 is the base prime number)

going to Strong's 1481g =

ethnarches {eth-nar'-khace} from 1484 and 746;; n m AV - governor 1; 1 1) an ethnarch, one set over a people as ruler, but without the authority and name of a king

from 2 Corinthians 11:32

the word by itself would seem to have no connection to the 1 Thess 4:16 verse, but reading the (only) verse it is found in seems to indicate something -

"In DAMASCUS the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:" (emphasis mine)

This might place Damascus square in the middle of the 1 Thess 4:16, which is something I've been theorizing about for quite a while; specifically that Damascus is destroyed at the time of the Descending/Resurrection/Rapture event that is coming.

Damascus is really in the news now.
