Pamphlet 1672 Nahum 7-1

 "History is prophecy" because it is true the "HIStory repeats itself"

The Book of Nahum gives great comfort to all of God's servants who mourn the evil ways of this world by giving them insight (vision, understanding) into the judgment of, and what happens to, that "great city" (typified by Nineveh) which is the One World System, the New World Order headed by Satan (typified by the Assyrian) and his band of merry men, when the King of kings and Lord of lords returns to this earth with ALL POWER to execute justice and righteousness and give unto every man according to his works. Yes, "our Father which art in heaven" is in total control and "His kingdom SHALL come" and "His will SHALL be done on earth as it is in heaven".

We learned earlier that the LORD of hosts, the great "I AM", is AGAINST that evil one-world empire, that "great whore" in these last days who "sits upon many waters (symbolic of peoples - Rev. 17:15)". We read that He shall expose her spiritual nakedness and her shameful ways to all the world when He brings old "Queenie" down.

Nahum 3:5 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.
In Revelation 18:3 we read that this great whore, the mother of harlots, causes all the nations of the world to commit fornication with her through her sorceries, i.e. to drink of her wine.

That is not new knowledge to students of God's Word for we read the same here in the Book of Nahum:

Nahum 3:4 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.
It is the judgment of this great whore that we are reading about in the Book of Nahum, just as we read of the judgment of the "great whore" in Revelation 17 & 18:
Rev. 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
We now continue in the final chapter of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite
concerning the "burden of Nineveh", which is her judgment and her destruction.
Nahum 3:6 And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.
To "make thee vile" is to "disgrace thee"! In other words, when God brings Satan and his New World Order down the whole world shall look upon and gaze in wonderment at what a filthy, abominable whore Babylon the great truly was! And no wonder for she was the creation and "fruition" of that "vile person" himself (Dan. 11:21), that filthy abominable one (Satan) who makes desolate the souls of men (Dan. 11:31, 12:11).
[7] And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee?
Yes, all that looked to her for security and prosperity shall flee from her and stand afar off, for great shall be her fall! There will be no more World Trade Organization when future "Nineveh" is laid waste! No one will ever again buy or sell his or her merchandise through that "great city" when the Day of Vengeance of our God is fully come, just as it is written in Revelation 18:
Rev. 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

[11] And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

Perhaps the most important thing to understand about the fall of Nineveh,
the capital of the Assyrian and a type of that "great city" of the last days,
is that this vision of Nahum the Elkoshite concerning her yet future destruction
SHALL come to pass exactly as it is written. You see,
there has never been nor shall there ever be an entity or a Stronghold or Fortress
that can withstand the fury and "Power of Almighty God" (El-Kosh)!

So do not ever entertain the thought that the One World System
with its full control over the Four Hidden Dynasties has any strength whatsoever
when it comes to standing against the power of His might! Be it known that just as Nineveh,
that great city, was destroyed as per God's decree and forewarning through His prophet,
so shall the future type she represents also be destroyed as per that same decree
and same forewarning of His prophet.

Note: We should also keep in mind that "history is prophecy" because it is true the "HIStory repeats itself", and that the events that took place in times past were ensamples (types) that have been written for the benefit and admonition of those of us upon whom the ends of the world are come! 1 Cor. 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
