The gates of the rivers shall be opened
and the palace shall be dissolved
By Craig C. White
Construction of the Mosul dam was completed in the mid 1980’s. Ever since then the gypsum soil foundation of the dam has been dissolving. Liquid cement called grout has been required to be constantly pumped into the voids since construction. The brief takeover of the dam by ISIS in 2014 and the ongoing war in Mosul have interrupted the maintenance schedule of the Mosul dam. Several flood gates of the Mosul dam had also been damaged. The gates had actually broken off of their hinges. Since late in 2016 the Italian contractor Trevi has been performing grouting operations to fill in the voids of the dissolving soil foundation. Engineers have also been working to repair the inoperable flood gates.
Well just now one of the broken floodgates of the Mosul dam has been repaired and has been opened for the first time in twelve years. Engineers say that the Tigris River will rise next week.
The Prophet Nahum predicts the flooding of ISIS in Mosul. He says that the gates of the Tigris River will be opened.
Nahum 2:6 The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved.
As of May 4, 2017 gate No. 5 of the Tigris River has literally been opened. The first part of Nahum 2:6 has been fulfilled. If the Mosul dam were to break it would send a seventy five foot high wave of water over Mosul flooding the last remnant of ISIS fighters trapped inside of the city. By the way; I think that Nahum identifies the Al Nuri Mosque as “the palace” in the second part of Nahum 2:6. ISIS is making their last stand at the Al Nuri Mosque in western Mosul.
Here is a video presentation by Paul Leyer about the flooding of Mosul. Paul is the only other Bible teacher who has observed that the Prophet Nahum predicts the flooding of ISIS in Mosul.
