Judgement to the north and south
God hates pride, in a person and in a nation. Ancient Assyria now includes parts of Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Syria, all Muslim countries. Once a proud nation, God will bring judgement and total destruction to these
“You Ethiopians also,
You shall be slain by My sword.”
And He will stretch out His hand against the north,
And make Nineveh a desolation,
As dry as the wilderness.
The herds shall lie down in her midst,
Every beast of the nation.
Both the pelican and the bittern
Shall lodge on the capitals of her pillars;
Their voice shall sing in the windows;
Desolation shall be at the threshold;
For He will lay bare the cedar work.
This is the rejoicing city
That dwelt securely,
That said in her heart,
“I am it, and there is none besides me.”
How has she become a desolation,
A place for beasts to lie down!
Everyone who passes by her
Shall hiss and shake his fist.
PRAY FOR THE INHABITANTS OF ANCIENT ASSYRIA TO RECOGNIZE AND BELIEVE THAT THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND HIS MESSIAH IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD.
