Bashan Carmel and Lebanon - Nahum 1:4 Map

Why are the areas around Damascus and the Golan Heights mentioned in conjunction with the flooding and judgment of ancient Nineveh? Nineveh was destroyed with a flood in 612 BC. Today Mosul in northern Iraq is built around the ruins of ancient Nineveh. The Prophet Nahum predicted the flooding of Nineveh he may also predict the flooding of ISIS in Mosul! In Nahum it seems that Jesus Christ will personally judge ISIS in Mosul.

Nahum 1:3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

While describing the flooding of Nineveh the Prophet Nahum also mentions these other places; Bashan, Carmel, and Lebanon. Is it possible that Jesus will judge these places in person when he comes to collect his Church at the Rapture?

Nahum 1:4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. 5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. 6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. 7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

It is interesting to note that all of these places are the scenes of end time events that I believe will happen around the same time. I think that the flooding of Mosul (Nahum), and the destruction of Damascus (Jer 49:23-27), and the following Turkish led invasion into (northern) Israel (Eze 38) will all happen just before the Tribulation begins. The scene is set for all of these events to happen now!

Nahum also says that as the Lord comes in his anger that he knows who belongs to him (Nahum 1:7). Could this be describing the Rapture?

    Matthew 12: 18Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

    19He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.

    20A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

    21And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

    I feel verse 21 is somehow connecting to Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

    And it gives me more evidence and confidence that it is what you’re saying the rapture of the Church. 🙂

    1. Hi Tibs. That is an excellent observation. Even more so when you consider that Nineveh was the only time that God sent an Old Testament Hebrew prophet to preach to the Gentiles.
