If you want to read it, you'll have to download a free copy of E-Sword and scroll down into the middle of the Bible, where the Old Testament is almost over.

There is a Book of Nahum there. It is only 3 Chapters. It talks specifically and only of Nineveh. In the ancient day, Nineveh was North & Northeast Assyria, which is modern day Iraq. Now it is a province specifically in the country of Iraq, slightly to the Northeast, mixed population, Sunni Muslim majority however.

It talks in Chapters 2 and 3 only of war, and only of ruin falling on Nineveh, because the Lord is against them. It speaks of helpers from Egypt, Punt, Kush. It is quite astonishing to read, it sounds like it is describing events that have unfolded since the Iraq invasion in 2003 and events yet to happen, prophecy.

Sadly, I cannot summarize it for you, for it is far too profound and I barely understand and grasp. But the end says nothing of good times, only that Nineveh's crack will be severe, and all people will pity her destruction.

Are you suggesting that the bible prophesised the current strife in iraq?

What about the previous strife? I mean, its pretty meaningless to say that there will 'one day' be strife in a particular region. Its true for everywhere.

4 The chariots storm through the streets,
rushing back and forth through the squares.
They look like flaming torches;
they dart about like lightning.

Interesting comparison nahum here is the link to bible gateway. You can read it in any version you want.

It is easy to overlook this story and its possible reference to Iraq. Some of it sounds quite modern, as described by a person who had no idea what he was describing. The human part could be for any time in history.

Put together in the same context gives us something to think about.

Basically. I'm saying that is possible, but not definite.

Yes theres always been strife, but .. since when have Egyptians, people from Punt (Somalia/Yemen) and people Kush (Libyans, North Africans) all been in Iraq in a conflict?

... I dont even think they were all together in Iraq since Jesus time. I mean large groups of foreigners there specifically to wage war and kill?

Sure, Saddam was bad, and rulers before him. But never total disorder and civil conflict sustained to this point, since QUITE some time. 100's of years. More people are murdered/killed there intentionally each day of every race color and nation than any time before. Did Saddam execute 100+ every day for 4 years straight?

Thats like 4200 people a year. Times four. 17,000 executions in 4 years time? I doubt it.

Even the gassing of the Kurds didnt kill that many.

Boy....this went nowhere fast.

The city of New Orleans, Louisiana, was reduced in one day to a garbage heap as countless thousands of houses and commercial buildings, shipyards, and enterprises of every kind were crushed like eggshells. Bodies were floating everywhere; and mud, sludge, and abominable filth were everywhere, too. Soon the military would arrive with weapons in hand and orders to shoot to kill as martial law was declared. A perfect description of this is found in Nahum 3:3-6 as follows: “The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses: Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well-favored 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 show the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.” Can any thinking person doubt that this is precisely what happened to New Orleans, Louisiana?

Here is another slant on the book of Nahum.

I am quite sure Nahum has something to do with the USA. Trying to figure it out is the big question. I will give the location of this quote.

Arrests made in twin truck bombings

"Iraqi security forces raided a home Tuesday in Nineveh province and arrested two suspects in connection with twin truck bombings March 27 that killed 152 people in Tal Afar, the U.S. military said Wednesday.

The Tal Afar bombings were the deadliest single attack since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, according to a high-ranking Iraqi Interior Ministry official.

The blasts erupted in Shiite districts of the predominantly Turkmen city and set off a wave of reprisals in which 70 people were killed in one of the city's Sunni neighborhoods."

Heres the article on CNN, scroll to 3rd portion to get what I've quoted

And now, my question to whomever has read the Book of the Visions of Nahum is thus: Does this not fit the page?
