Reading Nahum and Habakkuk this morning and it occurred to me now and has in the past as well, but this particularly came to my attention. Today in Christendom that which is holy is in captivity, just as the King of Babylon drank out of the vessels of the house of the Lord he had taken from Jerusalem, so today there are spiritual powers that be. EVERYONE and anyone who names the name of God and succeeds dealing with the spiritual powers that are, must contend with these powers, if you don’t get their approval, you don’t pass go and you don’t collect $200.
The Prophecy of Nahum is against the Assyrians. Very important that one know that the Assyrians ARE THE LAST POWER IN CHARGE BEFORE THE DAY OF THE LORD, THE FINAL INDIGNATION!
(Nah 3:4-5) Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.
This “Well Favored Harlot” is Christendom, now the spiritual holy city is occupied by and controlled by the spiritual Assyrian. Compare the Harlot spoken of in Nahum with the Harlot spoken of in Isaiah.
(Isa 1:21-22) How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
(Isa 47:1-6) Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man. As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel. Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms. I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.
These two spiritual principalities, Babylon and Assyria both have had their time spoiling the people of God, Babylon taking Judah captive for seventy years and Assyrian taking Ephraim captive; then it was literal, now it is spiritual. Assyria and Babylon are from the same kingdom, notice what the scriptures say,
(Isa 23:13) Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.
What I am saying here is Assyrian and Babylon were founded by the same people, and today the spiritual powers that be of the Assyrian and Babylon are related. I believe that the last vile reign of the wicked, dominating over Christendom before the Lord returns will be the Assyrian, as spoken by Nahum the prophet and confirmed other places in scripture.
Finally let me just say, those who you see succeeding in Christendom today, don’t be so jealous of them, they are the “Well Favored Harlot” under spiritual control of the spiritual forces of the Assyrian. Don’t be deceived by what appears to be their success, don’t accept their compromise, be content to be unsuccessful for a little longer. Until the Lord comes and brings judgement against this “Well-Favored Harlot” you will not succeed against the Assyrian.
You yourself come out from among them and be separate and in due time you will be rewarded if you faint not. THE ASSYRIAN IS IN OUR LAND! Those who make a deal with the Assyrian will be exposed in due time as the treacherous traitors of the truth they really are!
