Trend Update: ISIS Kicked Out of Mosul, July 2017

Posted in Mosul/Nineveh, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on July 6, 2017 by paulthepoke

The Prophet Nahum had this to say regarding the future of ancient Nineveh about 2,700 years ago…

Nahum 3:1 Woe to the bloody city, completely full of lies and pillage; her prey never departs.

Nahum 3:3 Horsemen charging, swords flashing, spears gleaming, many slain, a mass of corpses, and countless dead bodies. They stumble over the dead bodies!

July 6, 2017: Roughly nine months later from the beginning of hostilities, ISIS appears to be on their way out of town.

The Mosul Offensive to liberate ancient Nineveh began in October 2016. The goal was to rid the city of ISIS or Daesh. In January of 2017, eastern Mosul was controlled by the Iraqis. ISIS was left only on the west side of the Tigris River. One month later in February, the battle for western Mosul began.

The toll on the city has been great. The devastation has been tremendous with thousands of lives lost. Tens of thousands of citizens have been displaced. Water and food shortages are at critical levels. Health care supplies have dwindled as well as the number of caregivers. Property losses are reported to be in the billions.

News began to leak early in the day, Iraqi forces were having a successful day against ISIS. At the time, only two small pockets of resistance were noted. One was on the western shore of the Tigris River and a second was located in the heart of the Old City.

Remaining ISIS fighters are reported to be shaving their beards and trying to escape the city.

ISIS has been reported to use their own children as human shields to the bitter end.

 

Multiple, independent journalists are beginning to indicate ISIS has been eradicated from Mosul.

@Mosuleye is reporting that Mosul has been fully captured.

Trend Update: Mosul, Iraq, ISIS Digs In, November 2016

November 4, 2016: Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has issued a statement on the internet. He has encouraged ISIS to defend Mosul. He is also calling on ISIS members to invade Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Here are excerpts from his statement.

“To all the strugglers and the people of Nineveh, beware of any weakness…fight and struggle and face your enemy,” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Notice the leader of ISIS still refers to Mosul as Nineveh.

“Confront the enemy and transform their blood into rivers…transform their days into dark nights.”

al-Baghdadi also took a shot at Turkey. “The fighters of the Caliphate, here comes the atheist, Turkish soldiers…show them your strength.”

al-Baghdadi makes this statement knowing Turkey is massing tanks and military equipment about 60-70 miles north of ancient Nineveh on the Iraqi/Turkey border. The military buildup continued for the fourth day in a row.

Nahum 3:1 Woe to the bloody city, completely full of lies and pillage; her prey never departs.

Nahum 3:3 Horsemen charging, Swords flashing, spears gleaming, many slain, a mass of corpses, and countless dead bodies—they stumble over the dead bodies!

Look at the adjectives and language describing the number of dead.

many slain…The Hebrew word for “many” is rob. It means: multitude, abundance, greatness, and numerous.

…a mass of corpses… kobed is the Hebrew word which means: weight, heaviness, mass, great, abundance, or vehemence.

countless dead bodies… without number is the idea. There are too many dead to count.

One cannot walk because of all of the death. The book of Nahum is a grim and gruesome picture of a future Nineveh or modern day Mosul, Iraq.

This is the last verse of the book of Nahum. ISIS has occupied the ancient city since 2014. Islamic State is digging in to defend and protect their territory in the ancient capital of the Assyrian Empire. This is the response to the destruction of Nineveh.

Nahum 3:19 There is no relief for your breakdown, your wound is incurable. All who hear about you will clap their hands over you, for on whom has not your evil passed continually?

If now is the time Nahum is discussing, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will get his wish.
