This prophecy of Nahum is so important yet rarely spoke of when the bible is discussed by youre average christian. This prophecy actually foretells the invention of the car and the modern weaponry we know today. This is absolute proof of the validity of Nahums prophecy and the words he spoke regarding the days of preparation. Which I have faith to understand is the preparation for the second coming of the Lord. Because of these words I absoluteyly know and have strong faith to understand the Lord has already prepared a place for us in his kingdom and the Glory of the Church is preparing for the last and final days. Because a day to the Lord is 1000 years it is not really something I believe we can know. Yet the last days are here and because of this prophecy having come true when the absolute last days are upon us as Nahums prophecy is true so also all those prophecies of the end times which we have read in the gospels.
2:1 He who dashes in pieces has come up against you. Keep the fortress! Watch the way! Strengthen your loins! Fortify your power mightily!
2:2 For Yahweh restores the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel; for the destroyers have destroyed them, and ruined their vine branches.
2:3 The shield of his mighty men is made red. The valiant men are in scarlet. The chariots flash with steel in the day of his preparation, and the pine spears are brandished.
2:4 The chariots rage in the streets. They rush back and forth in the broad ways. Their appearance is like torches. They run like the lightnings.
2:5 He summons his picked troops. They stumble on their way. They dash to its wall, and the protective shield is put in place.
2:6 The gates of the rivers are opened, and the palace is dissolved.
2:7 It is decreed: she is uncovered, she is carried away; and her handmaids moan as with the voice of doves, beating on their breasts.
2:8 But Nineveh has been from of old like a pool of water, yet they flee away. "Stop! Stop!" they cry, but no one looks back.
2:9 Take the spoil of silver. Take the spoil of gold, for there is no end of the store, the glory of all goodly furniture.
2:10 She is empty, void, and waste. The heart melts, the knees knock together, their bodies and faces have grown pale.
2:11 Where is the den of the lions, and the feeding-place of the young lions, where the lion and the lioness walked, the lion's cubs, and no one made them afraid?
2:12 The lion tore in pieces enough for his cubs, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his caves with the kill, and his dens with prey.
2:13 "Behold, I am against you," says Yahweh of Hosts, "and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword will devour your young lions; and I will cut off your prey from the earth, and the voice of your messengers will no longer be heard."
