Mosul, the modern city built on the ruins of Nineveh, was overrun by Sunni ISIS militants just a few days ago. Now, contrary to earlier promises, they have recently given an ultimatum to the Christians living in that city; convert to Islam, pay the jizya (tax on Christians), leave, or die.
According to reports, all of the Christians in Mosul have chosen to leave.
Well, is this the end of “Christianity ” in Iraq?
According to the article above, this is the end of Assyrians in Mosul, but I would have to differ with that interpretation. Many Assyrians have already converted to Islam, and are still in Mosul, perhaps even supporting ISIS.
The Psalm 83 war will include Assyrian representation in the armies that attack Israel at that time;
Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot.
As I have noted before, Assur was the patriarch of Assyria, but that does not mean that the Islamic armies of Psalm 83 will have a Christian Assyrian contingent? No, they will be Islamic Assyrians.
I think the reason that the professing Christians of Mosul, and probably the rest of Iraq, are leaving is because eventually they will return. After the massive Islamic defeat in the Psalm 83 war, the millions of displaced Iraqi “Christian” citizens will be able to return and take back their country.
If, as I suspect, their capital Baghdad, is flattened in that war, where might the people of Iraq/Assyria set up their capital at that time?
Babylon. Or more probably, al Hillah, the modern city which has built up around the ruins of Babylon.
As you study the ancient prophecies of the demise of Babylon, you should notice that Babylon was never destroyed the way those prophecies describe. Furthermore, those same prophecies are referenced in the book of Revelation, which is a strong indication that Babylon will be resurrected before God’s judgment falls on her. (Jeremiah 51:13, Revelation 17:1)
Although the Church of Rome does indeed embody many of the elements of the ancient Babylonian religion, Rome is not Babylon. God’s judgments are specifically aimed at Babylon. It looks to me that the Church of Rome will one day soon be forced to relocate their headquarters, and I think those new headquarters will be located on the plains of Shinar.
7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. 8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof. 9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. 10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? 11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base. Zechariah 5:11
Why a lead woman? She is a heavy burden, and an idol. While they have a type of “Christ”, to them His mother is more important! This is the mother-goddess of pagan religions, including the Mary of the Catholic Church, the church of these very same Assyrian refugees from Mosul.
Notice that this woman has “her base” in the land of Shinar. This should indicate to us that she has already been there. It belongs to her. These two female angels are moving her back to her own base, the place where she first came to prominence, and yes, she will have a new house built in Babylon, a relocation of the Vatican!
And the Assyrians will return, rejoicing and singing that ISIS is defeated! Oh, but they will go from the frying pan into the fire!
This is the place where the human race began its war with God, and they will take a last stand there. God will use the Beast, and the ten world kings, to destroy Babylon after he uses her to set up his kingdom.
After the destruction of Babylon, the Beast will move his headquarters to his own home town, the city of seven jabals, or seven mountains, Amman (formerly known as Philadelphia).
