....."The Metropolitan Museum... It's filled with artifacts of ancient peoples, and it's enormous. So I figured that whoever these people were, if they were of any historical significance, their artifacts would be on display in that museum. I would go there with the seal, hoping to find a match."
"It was as impressive as I had hoped it would be, with artifacts from Egypt, Rome, Greece, Persia, Babylon...I started with the Egyptian wing on the first floor. But nothing matched. Then I searched through the Greek and Roman wing. But again, no matches. Then I made my way up the grand staircase and over to. the Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art. That's where I saw it. It was impossible to miss. It was gigantic."
"What was gigantic?" she asked.
"Massive stone walls covered with reliefs of giant figures— warriors, priests, and a numb er of creatures, part-human... part-bird composite creatures. I took out the seal and compared the figures to those on the wall. They were the same figures, the same squarish beards, the same clothing, and all in the same style of artwork and engraving. It was a match."
'An exact match?"
"It wasn't the same image," he replied, "but it was the same people, the same civilization."
"So who were they?"
"They were the ancient Assyrians."
"And what did you make of it?"
"I didn't have time to make anything of it. I was studying the images on the wall when I heard a voice from behind me."
"One word," said the prophet. "Terror. The Assyrians made terror into a science. They systematized it, perfected it, and employed it as no other people or kingdom had ever done before. They burned cities to the ground, mutilated their prisoners, flayed alive those who rebelled against them, and nailed their skins to the wall for public display. The Assyrians were the masters of terror."
"And what do they have to do with the mystery?"
"It was the dark shadow of Assyrian terror that loomed over the kingdom of Israel. This was the danger against which the prophets warned. And it was only the hedge of God's protection that was keeping that danger at bay. But that was about to change. With the nation's descent into apostasy, it was no longer safe."
"It was the Assyrians," I said. "They were the ones who caused 'the breach."
"Correct," he replied. "In 732 B.C., with the nation's hedge of protection lifted, the Assyrians invaded the land of Israel."
"So that must have made it all the more terrifying for the people of Israel... that it was the Assyrians."
"Exactly. There couldn't have been any clearer warning of the coming judgment than that. And when, years later, Israel's final judgment came, the Assyrians would again be the means through which it would happen."
"But you're not saying that God was siding with the Assyrians?''
"Not in any way. This is the prophecy He gave concerning them:
"Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger
And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.
I will send him against an ungodly nation
Yet he does not mean so, Nor does his heart think so; But it is in his heart to destroy, And cut off not a few nations.1
"The Assyrians were the epitome of evil, and God was against them. The prophecy continued:
"I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his haughty looks....
"Therefore the Lord, the Lord of hosts Will send leanness among his fat one; And under his glory He will kindle a burning Like the burning of a fire.2
........."An enemy strikes the land. The attack is plotted out by the merciless and executed by the brutal, designed to traumatize the nation, to inflict shock and fear, terror, the sign of the Assyrian. The Second Harbinger: the Terrorist."
"The Assyrians were terrorists?" I asked.
"As much as any people have ever been. Terrorism is defined as: the systematic application of terror, violence, and intimidation to achieve a specific end. Terror as an applied science—this was the dark gift the Assyrians gave to the world.".......
"From the temples of Nineveh to the beer halls of Weimar Germany... to the barren caves of Afghanistan... from Sennacherib to Osama bin Laden...it all goes back to ancient Assyria. The Assyrians are the fathers of terrorism, and those who mercilessly plotted out the calamity on 9/11 were their spiritual children, another link in the mystery joining America to ancient Israel. In both cases, the warning began with a manifestation of terrorism."
"Did the 9/11 terrorists see themselves as modern-day Assyrians?"
"It doesn't matter," said the prophet. "That's what they were. Remember the prophecy against Assyria: 'It is in his heart to destroy.'"
"Osama bin Laden,"
"'And cut off not a few nations.'"
"That was his intention."
"Then all those responsible for 9/11 are under His judgement?"
"I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria.'" said the prophet .......
The ruins are all that's left of the ancient city called Nineveh. Nineveh was the capital, the final resting place, and the graveyard of the Assyrian Empire."
"Assyria is Iraq?"
"It's the same land."
"The nation under judgment... is drawn into conflict with the land of Assyria... ancient Israel... now America."
"And American troops were now walking the same earth on which the feet of Assyrian soldiers had once marched. And among those watching them pass by were those who could still claim to be the descendants of the ancient Assyrians."
"Their actual flesh-and-blood descendants?" I asked.
"Yes," he replied. "And who knows but that the veins of the 9/11 terrorists did not also flow with the blood of the ancient Assyrians?"
"So ancient Israel, in its time of judgment, was drawn into war with Assyria, which is now Iraq.".......
"And now, the same sign that signaled the judgment of ancient Israel two and half thousand years before reappears in the modern world—no less dark and no less threatening—the sign of the Assyrian, the attack of the Terrorist.".......,
NOW THE AUTHOR BEGINS HIS TIE-IN WITH SCRIPTURES SO HE THINKS.
HE MAKES HIS FIRST HUGE MISTAKE - HE TELLS YOU THE TERRORISTS OF 9/11 WERE THE SAME PEOPLE (DESCENDANTS) OF THE ANCIENT ASSYRIANS.
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!
THE ARABS WHO PLOTTED 9/11 WERE ARABS - ALL ARABS COME FROM ISHMAEL THE SON OF ABRAHAM. IT WAS PROPHESIED THE SONS OF ISHMAEL WOULD BE A GREAT PEOPLE....AND THEY HAVE SO BECOME.
THE ANCIENT ASSYRIANS WERE NOT AN ARAB PEOPLE, THEY DID NOT DESCEND FROM ISHMAEL. THEY WERE SEMETIC PEOPLE, BUT NOT FROM ISHMAEL, AND WERE NOT THE PRESENT IRAQ PEOPLE, WHO ARE ARABS FROM ISHMAEL.
THE ANCIENT ASSYRIANS WERE VERY CRUEL PEOPLE IN WAR. AFTER THEY HAD TAKEN ALL THE HOUSE OF ISREAL CAPTIVE AND DEPORTED THEM TO THE LAND OF ASSYRIA, THE BABYLON EMPIRE ROSE UP AND PUSHED THE ASSYRIANS AND THE PEOPLE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL NORTH AND WEST, WHERE THEY CONTINUED TO MIGRATE THROUGH EUROPE. THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL BECAME KNOW AS CELTS, ANGLO-SAXSON, JUTES, DANES, AND THE ANCIENT ASSYRIAN BECAME THE FEARED GERMANIC TRIBES, FEARED BY THE ROMANS BECAUSE OF THEIR BRUTAL WARS AND FIGHTING POWER. ACTUALLY IN TIME THE ROMANS EMPLOYED MANY GERMANIC TRIBES AS MERCENARY FIGHTERS IN THEIR ARMIES.
THE AUTHOR HAS NOT STUDIED IN ANY SERIOUS WAY WHERE THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH HAVE COME FROM. IT'S ALL THERE CONTAINED IN THEIR HISTORY.
CRAIG SMITH HAS DONE MANY DECADES OF RESEARCH AS TO THE ORIGIN OF ALL NATIONS ON EARTH. TWO GREAT BOOKS HE HAS PUBLISHED: ONE "THE ORIGIN OF NATIONS" AN OVERALL BOOK OF AS IT SAYS THE ORIGIN OF ALL NATIONS. THE SECOND BOOK "THE GREAT GERMAN NATION" WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND WHAT END TIME PROPHECY TELLS US WHAT THEY WILL DO IN THE LAST 3 AND 1/2 YEARS OF THE END OF THIS AGE. THE TWO BOOKS ARE HIGHLY DETAILED WITH MANY REFERENCES FOR EACH SECTION. THEY ARE OBTAINABLE FROM AMAZON.COM
THIS PROPHECY OF ISAIAH 10 IS AN END TIME PROPHECY, FOR THE LAST 3 AND 1/2 YEARS OF THIS AGE. THEN GERMANY WITH A COMPANY OF NATIONS WILL RISE UP WITH AN ARMY (NOT JUST 20 OR SO TERRORISTS AS IN 9/11) AND INVADE AS AN HUGE ARMY THE ISRAEL NATIONS OF AMERICA, THE BRITISH COMMONWEALTH, AND CERTAIN NATIONS OF NORTH-WEST EUROPE. THE ASSYRIANS MOVED OUT, WERE PUSHED OUT OF THEIR LAND BY THE BABYLONIANS, AND LIKE ISRAEL MIGRATED NORTH WEST INTO AND THROUGH EUROPE.
THEY WERE INDEED CERTAINLY A CRUEL AND DEGRADING FIGHTING MACHINE. AND THIS WAS CLEARLY SHOWN TO THE WORLD IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR, AND ESPECIALLY IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR, WITH DEATH CAMPS, STARVATION TO SKIN AND BONE OF THOUSANDS, AND MEDICAL NEXPERIMENTS ON MEN, WOMEM, AND CHILDREN. SOME OF THE MOST CRUEL AND INSANE PEOPLE WERE PART OF THE MODERN ASSYRIAN ARMY....THEY WERE OUT TO BUILD HITLER HIS "MASTER RACE" - THE GERMAN RACE.
THERE IS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN THE MAD CRAZED MIND OF HITLER AND HIS CLONES, WITH 20 OR SO ARAB TERRORISTS, WHICH WORK WOULD ONLY LAST A FEW HOURS AT THE MOST. HILTER WAS OUT TO DESTROY NATIONS - PLURAL, AND CONQUER THE WORLD. THE ARAB TERRORISTS WERE OUT TO GIVE A FEW DEATH BLOWS TO ONE NATION. AND SURELY WERE NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO THINK THEY COULD BRING DOWN AN ENTIRE POWERFULL ARMY THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.
THE ANCIENT ASSYRIANS DID HAVE IN MIND TO DETROY THE ENTIRE NATION OF ANCIENT ISRAEL, WHICH THEY ACCOMPLISHED IN THE YEARS 721-718, WHEN THEY KILLED AND THEM DEPORTED THE SURVIVORS TO THE LAND OF ASSYRIA.
THE TERRORISTS OF 9/11 WERE CRAZY IN THE HEAD TO THINK THEY COULD BRING DOWN THE ENTIRE NATION OF AMERICA, DESTROY THEIR CITIES AND CARRY OFF THE SURVIVORS BACK TO IRAQ.
THE WHOLE IDEA GIVEN IN THIS CHAPTER BY THE AUTHOR IS NEITHER LOGICAL OR EVEN COMMON SENSE. IT WAS THIER ONLY IDEA AS TO BE ABLE TO DO SOME KILLINGS IN THE USA. AND THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN STUPID IDIOTS TO THINK THE USA WOULD NOT FIGHT BACK IN NO UNCERTAIN WAY, JUST AS THEY DID TO THE JAPANESE WHEN THE SILLY JAPAN GOVERNMENT THOUGHT THEY COULD DESTROY THE UNITED STATES. ONE JAPAN OFFICIAL AT THE END OF THE MOVIE, SAID, WHEN HIS PLANES WERE HEADING OUT TO ATTACK PEARL HARBOR, "I THINK WE HAVE WOKEN UP A SLEEPING GIANT."
THE USA HAS BEEN ENGAGED IN MANY SINS SINCE SLAVERY; RASISM FOR 100 YEARS; ABORTION ON DEMAND FOR DECADES; NOW SAME SEX MARRIAGE; MINISTERS OF RELIGION MANY NOW BEING OPENLY GAY; PRAYERS OUT OF SCHOOL; SEXUAL IMMORALITY; FORNICATION; ADULTERY; MURDERS, FRAUD BY BANKERS AND MONEY MEN; SABBATH BREAKING WHERE WE HAVE A 24/7 WORKING SOCIETY; PAGAN FESTIVALS WITH-WHICH WE THINK WE WORSHIP GOD; SPORTS FIGURES WHO GET GREAT HONOR AND ADORATION ONLY TO BE FOUND LIARS AND CHEATS.
TAKING THE AUTHORS POSITION, THE KATRINA STORM, SUPER STORM SANDY, THE MASSIVE CRAZY WEATHER THE USA HAS HAD THIS WINTER......WELLLL....COULD ALL HAVE BEEN HARBINGERS. BUT THIS AUTHOR HAS FOUND ONE WHICH HE THINK IS RIGHT FROM THE BIBLE AND FORETOLD THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
MORE ON THAT HUGE MISTAKE NEXT TIME.
