The prophet Nahum predicts the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq
Mosul is the hometown of ISIS.
By Craig C. White
The book of Nahum predicts the flooding of the ancient city of Nineveh. Nahum says that the place where Nineveh sits will be destroyed with a flood of water. Today the city of Mosul in northern Iraq sits in the same place. Mosul is Nineveh! Nahum may also predict the flooding of Mosul!
Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
The Mosul dam was built on water soluble soil called gypsum. So the foundation of the dam is dissolving. The dam was finished in the 1980’s. Since then maintenance workers have had to pump concrete into the holes. Ever since ISIS took control over the dam in 2015 the maintenance has been disrupted. The Iraqi Army retook control over the dam but the maintenance still isn’t being done. ISIS in Mosul controls the construction materials that are needed to pour the concrete. Now the gates of the dam have come off of their hinges and one of the spillways is jammed shut so that the water behind the dam cannot be drained. Right now the spring rains threaten to overfill the Mosul dam reservoir causing the Mosul dam to fail.
If the Mosul dam fails a 70 foot tall wave of water would roar over the city killing perhaps 1.5 million people. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS in northern Iraq. If the Mosul dam were to break it would mean the end of ISIS.
