A prophecy against ISIS

A prophecy against ISIS

Assyria will not rise a second time

By Craig C. White

Today the Iraqi Prime Minister announced the beginning of the offensive to retake Mosul in northern Iraq from ISIS. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. Mosul is also the ancient city of Nineveh. The Prophet Nahum predicted the flooding of the Assyrian capital city of Nineveh that happened in 612 BC.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

In 612 BC God sent torrential rain to swell the Tigris River and flood the city. When Assyria’s enemies saw that the city was in distress they rushed in and plundered the city for two months until nothing was left. Three nations plundered Nineveh. They were Babylon, Persia, and the Medes. Today the same three armies are fighting against Mosul. The Mosul dam is also in danger of bursting. Nahum may have also predicted the flooding of ISIS in Mosul.

ISIS represents a revived Assyrian State. ISIS has been working towards establishing a new Islamic Empire but God told Nahum that that would never happen again. The Assyrian Empire will not rise a second time!

Nahum 1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

If ISIS had read the book of Nahum they could have saved themselves a lot of trouble for nothing. If we had read the book of Nahum then we could have saved ourselves a lot of worry.

I think that Nahum’s words apply today. The city of Mosul will be destroyed in a flood and then Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds will plunder what is left.

    1. You could be right Matthew. The timing seems about right. The same armies that conquered Nineveh now surround the outskirts of Mosul. If there was a flood then they would be ready to go in. Although I am not sure that a forty day countdown begins on the first day of the battle for Mosul. Iranian backed militia have cut off the road from Sinjar to Syria. That means that ISIS could escape only as far as Sinjar to the west of Mosul. Nahum says that the Assyrians (or perhaps in this case ISIS) will escape to the mountains where nobody will help them. The mountains west of Sinjar is where the Yisidis took refuge. One thing that I suspected might happen is an ISIS conquest of Kobani and a greater influx of ISIS fighters from Syria into Mosul.


  1. Wow, some pretty intense stuff going on. I was watching a couple of videos on Live Leaks and looks like ISIS is ready for all out war in Mosul. If there was going to be a flood, I would assume before the three armies begin their attack. Otherwise all those troops would also be victims of the flood.


  2. Craig,

    Yesterday, Iraqi engineers were celebrating the reopening of the Mosul Dam gate and spillway operations. Their claim was that “All is well.” I remember reading a report about a year ago, that said “when that much water is released it creates some swirling back currents around the base of the dam.” This swirling effect can cause increased water flows and erosion in the cavities. It was pretty alarming to see the video of the release and the Tigris is rising. I don’t think they should be celebrating yet. I wonder if ISIS has ordered the food and drink for their final all nighter?



    1. Wow David you are alert and on task. I will check out the Mosul dam gate reopening news. Nahum says that the gates of the River will be opened and the palace will be dissolved.

      PS: I couldn’t find a news story about fixing the floodgates.
