Assyrian palace found in Mosul!
Last seen when Nineveh flooded.
By Craig C. White
ISIS destruction in Mosul has unearthed Assyrian King Sennacherib’s palace from the time that God destroyed ancient Nineveh with a flood (612 BC). The palace ruins were found underneath the Shrine to the biblical Prophet Jonah. ISIS used high explosives to blow up the Shrine to Jonah in 2014 when they took control of Mosul. Iraqi soldiers have entered the now buried palace by way of ISIS tunnels. The soldiers reported that the two story structure is in eminent danger of collapsing. This is the palace that is identified in Nahum 2:6. Evidently the flood of 612 BC buried Sennacherib’s palace.
Nahum 2:6 The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved.
The Prophet Nahum predicted the flooding and plundering of the ancient Assyrian capital city of Nineveh. Today the ruins of Nineveh lay within the Mosul city limits. Nahum says that God would destroy the place where Nineveh was built with an overrunning flood. Nahum may also predict the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq. Nahum says that the inhabitants of Nineveh would be gathered together when their destruction came. Today the Iraqi Army has pushed ISIS close together in western Mosul. The Mosul dam is in danger of busting. If Mosul is going to flood then it seems that now would be an appropriate time!
Let’s notice that Assyrian King Sennacherib’s palace has once again been seen by human eyes after 2,600 years. Just like 612 BC this palace has resurfaced at a time when Nineveh (or modern day Mosul) is once again under siege and also in danger of flooding. If the Mosul dam breaks then Sennacherib’s palace will most likely be dissolved once again and for all time. Do you think that God is trying to tell us something? Is anybody listening?
