Why is ISIS missing from Ezekiel 38?

Why is ISIS missing from Ezekiel 38?

Ezekiel meets Nahum

By Craig C. White

Ezekiel chapter 38 lists every nation that is fighting in Syria today! Ezekiel lists every nation except Iraq. ISIS from northern Iraq is fighting in Syria but it is not listed in the Turkish led invasion into Israel that is described in Ezekiel chapter 38.

Why is ISIS missing from Ezekiel chapter 38? Because God is going to marginalize ISIS before the Turkish led invasion into Israel happens. In Bible prophecy ISIS represents the Ancient Assyrians from the city of Nineveh. Ancient Nineveh is the modern day city of Mosul in northern Iraq. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. The Prophet Nahum says that ISIS will be gathered together in Mosul at the time that God sends a flood of water to drown them! The city will then be plundered by its neighbors; Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds. Now the Mosul dam is in danger of failing. Nahum says they will be in the midst of a drunken celebration when the flood hits.

Today the battle to retake Mosul from ISIS is underway. Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds are all fighting against ISIS near Mosul. ISIS is also occupying much of northeastern Syria. Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes a Turkish invasion into northwestern Syria. The Turkish Army is already amassed on the Syrian border. Turkey President Erdogan has threatened to enter northwestern Syria. It could be that Turkey will chase ISIS in Syria back to their home base in Mosul, Iraq.

Be aware; ISIS in Mosul will be destroyed by a flood. Turkey will invade Syria and destroy Damascus. Then Turkey will lead Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. Today they are all fighting in Syria!

Get up to speed with these three important Bible prophecy books!

  1. “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country is ready to move towards the Syrian city of Raqqa in Aleppo’s countryside to liberate it from Daesh on condition that terrorists are not involved in the operation, the Safa news agency reported yesterday.

    Erdogan reiterated that Turkey is moving to have a “terror-free zone” in Al-Bab neighbourhood in the northern part of Syria, noting that his country had a goal to form “a 5,000 square kilometre terror-free zone” around Raqqa.”



    1. When Erdogan says “DAESH” he isn’t necessarily referring to ISIS. He usually means the Kurds or the Assad regime.

      Erdogan considers the Kurds as terrorists. Turkey does not necessarily consider ISIS as terrorists. There is evidence that Turkey is buying Iraqi oil from ISIS. As a matter of fact ISIS has safe houses on the Turkish border right next to Turkish border patrol outposts.

      So far Turkey has not fought against ISIS. ISIS has retreated well in advance of approaching Turkish forces. I doubt that Turkey really wants to fight ISIS in Raqqa. Turkey may want to secure Raqqa for themselves or as a fighting base.
