Bodies of ISIS fighters litter the streets of western Mosul
The Prophet Nahum predicted slain bodies littering Mosul
By Craig C. White
The battle to liberate Mosul in northern Iraq has been ongoing since October 16, 2016. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. The Tigris River flows southward through the middle of Mosul dividing the city in half. Eastern Mosul was retaken by the Iraqi Army by mid January 2017. Now the Iraqi Army is fighting ISIS in the much more densely populated western side of the city. ISIS has put up a fierce resistance using car-bombs, armed drones, and snipers against the Iraqi Army. Because of the danger of being out in the open the Iraqi Army has been forced to leave the bodies of slain ISIS fighters laying in the streets where they fall. The rotting bodies are creating disease outbreaks. The Prophet Nahum predicted that there would be slain bodies littering Mosul.
Nahum 3:3 The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
Mosul is ancient Nineveh!! The Prophet Nahum foretells the destruction of Nineveh. In 612 BC the city was flooded by the Tigris River and was also besieged by three nations. After the Tigris River overflowed its banks knocking down part of the city wall, Babylon, Persia, and the Medes plundered Nineveh for two months leveling the city. Today the same three nations are fighting against ISIS in Mosul. They are Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds. Perhaps God will send another flood along with these three armies to once again overwhelm Mosul at Nineveh!
Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
Conditions in Mosul are the same as they were in ancient Nineveh. There is overflowing bloodshed. Dead bodies lay in the streets. The Mosul dam is in danger of bursting. The same three armies are set against Mosul. Nahum likely also foretells the destruction of Mosul. I expect the Mosul dam to burst very soon.
One thought on “Bodies of ISIS fighters litter the streets of western Mosul”
Observers point out that there are almost no captives on the part of ISIS, militants prefer to undermine themselves, but do not give up.
