Nahum 2:1 "He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily."
Though historically it represents Cyxares and Nabopolassar (Herod. i, 106): "He that dasheth" is a reference of type of the future destruction of the Antichrist.
"dasheth" in Hebrew is "Mephiz", which is a battle axe, or hammer (Jeremiah 23:29).
Nahum then gives us advise we better listen to. Our munitions is the "word of God" for the last battle, or war is a spiritual war of words and concepts; Of lies and deceptions, so that if you are not grounded in the "Word of God", the Antichrist will deceive you.
We are watchman, and as such we are to watch for the signs of the Antichrist and his "One World System". Any watchman who can not see the "One World" government is upon us, has to be spiritually" brain dead."
The 6 seals of Revelation, those dealing with the deceptions of the Antichrist, are well on there way. The actual showing up of the Antichrist is the fifth seal (Rev. 9:1), and the proportion by the four hidden dynasties will be completed then.
Wake up! It's last call before Satan's (Antichrist) coming. God is telling about this enemy, you better get all the firepower you can get for this final spiritual warfare. But it will not be enough to fight the elect of God.
Nahum 2:2 "For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and married their vine branches.:"
"Turned away" loses a lot in the translation; For He will "restore" the excellency of Jacob. That is to all tribes of Jacob.
In these latter days the "House of Jacob" don't know who they are, or what vine they belong to. Christ is the vine, and we are the branches, and God is the pruner. There is an other vine also, and He is the Antichrist, the first to come.
It's a pity how the, "so called" scholars of the Bible have lumped the "stars in the sky and the sands of the sea", into one little tribe of Judah. While the rest of Israel sits by allowing the Kenites to rob them blind of their heritage.
Nahum 2:3 "The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken."
There will be a great spiritual shaking. These are preparation's that the evil system will take up to fight God; but they will be of no use to them.
Nahum 2:4 "The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: They shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings."
With all the proportions the world system makes; when they will see Christ coming in the sky; it will be of no advantage. With one swift sweep that temple in Jerusalem will be gone, and not one stone left upon another. All evil rudiments will be wiped out, yet not one hair on the "elects" head will be touched. Satan's system will perish in the end.
People today are getting excited, and are trying to stop the World System and their plans. Most all of their plans are without reference to God or His plan, and they still reject God and are blind to His warnings. They will fail, and the system with the Antichrist will come to power, yet God will win.
Nahum 2:5 "He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared."
The King's "worthies", are his closest counselors, highest officers, and top military men. They will stumble to their posts, and in haste they will put together their defense against Christ.
Nahum 2:6 "The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved."
The "gates of the rivers" are the torrents of Gods wrath; they shall wash away all places of Antichrist's system. Once again, through it happened to the wicked ancient city of Nineveh; that was only a type of what is to come in this modern day Antichrists system.
The subject here is God's jealousy, and his wrath upon his enemies. He will take revenge, and chapter two is God getting even with Satan, and those who follow him; that is the Kenites, fallen angels, false shepherds, and all who assisted in leading God's people astray. God "dissolves" them here.
Nahum 2:7 " And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, tapering upon their breasts."
"Huzzab" is the Old Queen "Mystery Babylon", the queen of all false religions. She is the one that will lead many people astray. This is another name for Her.
She will be led away and all those who followed her will mourn her departure with their moaning: as they beat on their hearts. The old Queen has led them to the wrong Christ.
Nahum 2:8 "But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall look back."
Many of the tribes of Jacob's people will make up part of that Harlot Church. They have only been told about one Messiah, and they are anxious for his return, they dont know that the first one is the false christ and that The true Messiah is the second one to come.
In this verse, the "pool of water" looses in the English. It should read; is "a large reservoir of water" that could support an enormous population of people. This establishes a mark of wealth, and a center of strong influence.
This drawing of Nineveh is the type of the one world system, which draws those children of Jacob into the harlot religious order.
Even though it was so strong and protected, when it is gone, it will never be reestablished, or desired again. Why?
Nahum 2:9 "Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: for there is none end of the store and glory out of all the pleasant furniture."
This "One World System" will be storing it's gold and silver, and precious metals. It will accumulate the wealth of the world. Yet at Christ's return, they will run from it, and leave it like it were a piles of gravel.
Wealth will mean nothing to them because of their shame, when they realize that they have betrayed the true Christ. It is the loss of their soul and that is the only thing that matters.
Nahum 2:10 "She is empty, and void, and waste: and the heart melteth, and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gather blackness.."
The subject if "the big pool that is supplying the whole area of Nineveh." or in this case; the one world system (as a type) like in (verse 8).
Dr. Moffatt, as other commentaries say, "She is drained dry." When those Christians who were deceived wake up to who their false Messiah is, and that they have been deceived, the shame will be great. The reference to this is in Joel 2:6.
At Christ's return they will all be frightened. What they relied on and placed their eternal security on is gone, their false councilors is taken from them in chains, and before them is the true Messiah, and they stand not as his bride, but as a harlot with child. They have a right to be scared.
Nahum 2:11 "Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feeding place of the young lions, where the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lion's whelp, and none made them afraid?"
This is in reference to the fact that Lion's always take more than they eat. The One World System that is in the advanced stages today, always is taking far more than is needed, millions are killed in their preplanned wars, for the sake of their agenda.
Every part or agency, young and old alike, exceed their authority, stretch the truth, and become like the Lion; all for the sake of their system. In their greed and lies they have become bold. They take on the character of their leaders and father, Satan the Antichrist.
Nahum 2:12 "The lion did tear in pieces enough for his whelps, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey, and his dens with ravine."
So it is, they always take far more than they needed. Their balances "strangle" God's people.
Nahum 2:13 "Be hold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard."
God say's, I'm going to dry up and withdraw those people that you have been ripping off. When you send your messengers (Ambassadors, Tax Collectors, Collection Agents) out, I'm going to take care of them. They "Shall no more be heard".
The day is
coming when the Kenites and all their methods and systems
of bondage will be gone. Then the Lord God, Jesus Christ,
King of Kings will rule for ever and ever Amen.
