Prophetic Theory # 17: ISIS/Ishtar Caliphate War, Micah Prophecy: Babylonian Neo-Nimrod: The Assyrian

Years ago, when I held to pre-trib (Rapture) eschatology, I read everything I could from Chuck Missler. In my estimation, he seemed to be the elite of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Brain Trust. One of Chuck’s best essays asserts that the antichrist will be called “The Assyrian,” and have a powerful present-day Iraq and Syrian spiritual war-connection to Babylonian leader Nimrod. If you analyze this war-torn region, this assumption is implausible, but what’s impossible for man is easy for God.

Over the last few years Iraq and Syria have been decimated by a splintered war run by factions. When you heard that ISIS, a new faction, was too radical for Al-Qaeda, one would've assumed that the region will remain powerless. However, there was a successful recent push by ISIS insurgents to unify ancient Assyria, and turn it into an oil-based Caliphate powerhouse. Although in the natural this seemed implausible, we were watching the spiritual reunification of Assyria before our eyes. They were preparing a spiritual Babylon for the next ruler—the antichrist. By Russia lending assistance, and the USA doing nothing, prophecy was matching reality, or was it? 

This is a supernatural war for the goddess Isis/Ishtar/the mother of Nimrod, to reunify Babylon/Assyria into a Caliphate, like a bride for her bridegroom, the Beast or the Antichrist. According to lore, Nimrod marries his mother, and this is the twisted messianic connection to today. According to the "Prophecy of Ten Jubilees" by R. Judah ben Samuel in 1217, every move by first the Caliphate and then ISIS, is prophetic.
 

It was in this year [1217] that Rabbi Judah ben Samuel began publishing his biblical calculations called the Gematria, plus his astronomical observations a gave us this summary which we can read today. Rabbi Judah ben Samuel - “When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem [1517] they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees [1917]. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee [1967], and then in the ninth jubilee [2017] it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.” http://joelblackford.blogspot.com/2012/12/prophetic-theory-1-rabbi-judah-ben.html 
Let’s address why the rebels chose the prophetic “ISIS” for their moniker, and then we’ll take a stab at biblical prophecy.

Isis (Ancient Greek: Ἶσις, original Egyptian pronunciation more likely "Aset" or "Iset") is a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans and the downtrodden, but she also listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers.[1] Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus [Nimrod’s brother], the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus's mother was Hathor). Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.

…Osiris's death and rebirth was relived each year through rituals. The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era.[4] The popular motif of Isis suckling her son Horus, however, lived on in a Christianized context as the popular image of Mary suckling the infant son Jesus from the fifth century onward.[5] (Wikipedia)

The Return of Nimrod? By Chuck Missler – See more at: http://www.khouse.org/articles/2002/433/
…It is provocative that the Prophet Micah refers to this final conqueror as the "Assyrian": And this [one] shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. - Micah 5:5, 6

Isaiah and Ezekiel also employ this very term.10 [Isaiah 10:5, 24; 14:25; 30:31;  Ezekiel 31:3f.] The Assyrian empire preceded the Babylonian empire by several centuries.  This empire embraced the region we know today as Syria and Iraq. The first world dictator was Nimrod (whose name means "we rebel"), who ruled from Babylon. 11   It is interesting that Micah also refers to this "land of Nimrod" in his passage quoted above. Could it be that this final world dictator will be, in some sense, a return of Nimrod? 

This may add an additional dimension to the mysteries surrounding the future of Babylon: is it just used as a symbol, or will Babylon literally rise to prominence on the banks of the Euphrates once again? Isaiah and Jeremiah clearly describe a destruction of Babylon that has never happened-yet.12

The war currently raging in north and central Iraq – with armed insurgents from a faction connected to Al-Qaida in pursuit of fleeing Iraqi army units – seemingly is the most important strategic development in the Middle East in recent months.

The fighting may not end in a conclusive outcome, but it is already sending shock waves through all the neighboring countries, and also requires the United States to rethink its policy in the region. A record number of players have been participating in the Middle East chess game in recent years, many of them new. But the shock being produced by this week’s occupation of the Iraqi city of Mosul could bring about a real change in the opposing deployment of forces and alliances in the region.

Editorial: On the unchecked ascent of ISIS – See more at: http://syriadirect.org/main/30-reports/1438-editorial-on-the-unchecked-ascent-of-isis
…ISIS is doing what it said it would – work to build a caliphate that traverses borders and breaks the Western-drawn boundaries of the region. Rival hardline group Jabhat a-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s Syria branch, paved the way by taking over the north-central Syrian province of a-Raqqa in March 2013 after battling the FSA and other groups for what is today Syria’s only rebel-controlled province.

My opinions: ISIS chose the name to warn of an Islamic Caliphate of all Muslims waging war against the west, and ISIL was their other name denoting them destroying Israel too. The timing was perfect, noting the 1917 Jubilee where the Ottoman Empire's 1917 collapsed, featuring Allenby’s famous walk, and the Six Day War of 1967 featuring the victory of Jerusalem.


ISIS is creating the Assyrian/Babylonian Caliphate that will begin the Fourth Seal War, that will be managed by a shadowing figure called "The Assyrian," somehow related to the 2017 Jubilee. You won't know it because he will remain quiet, but The Assyrian should be considered the Beast or the antichrist of Revelation, or he could be Obama, the shadowy figure protecting and guiding ISIS. Just as Yahushua (Joshua) lead Israel to fight God's battles, the Messiah will lead Israel to fight God's end time's battles.


The rule: Like Joshua and the Hebrews, one must fight to enter the kingdom! Watch for Obama to use ISIS or ISIL (his words) to kindle multiple fires in the Middle East until war breaks out. Then, Putin will enter the fray. Obama is Gog, the one from Ezekiel 38-39 causing the nations to war against Israel. WWIII is next.


The kingdom of Heaven, the New Jerusalem, establishes by clearing away with great power, against the violent. Matt. 11:12 (my translation).


Shalom!
