Re: OMG! Ancient Niniveh, the capital of Assyria is actually ....
OP is a liar. No where in the book of Jonah in the Bible, does it say the big fish vomited Jonah out of his mouth near Nineveh. It says after the fish vomited Jonah out of it's mouth at the shore, then Jonah traveled to Ninevah and gave the message that God had given him. I don't know what OP's motivation is in trying to fabicate and confuse. Obvioulsly a tool of Satan. OP, don't add to or take away from the Word of God. I said it once before, Sir, you are an idiot.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20794080


You are not just an idiot but a very ignorant liar as well.

After being vomitted by the big fish, Jonah was able to enter the city on his first day's walk. Now tell me, which sea shore do you believe the big fish vomitted prophet Jonah? And how many miles do you believe that sea shore is from Nineveh? I can then use Google Earth to measure the distance from your proposed sea shore to where you believe Nineveh is.

1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you.” 3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent. 4 And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”

Again OP, you are trying to twist the scriptures to make your point. A very dangerous thing you are doing. The city of Ninevah is described as a very large city, meaning it is so large, that it would take 3 days to walk across it. The scripture says that upon the first day's walk across the city, Jonah began to proclaim the word of the Lord as it was delivered to him. No where does it say that Ninevah was only one day from where the fish deposited him. Why? Why are you so desirous to believe the lie? Be warned from II Thessalonians, 2:9-10:

9.The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10.and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Please brother, give it up and repent before it is too late.

II Timothy 4:3-4:

3.For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4. and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

Don't let your pride in being caught in an untruth prevent you from repenting.

The sign of Jonah would be the only sign given to this adulterous and wicked generation.

Jonah was to go to Nineveh to "speak against it". Forty days and it would be destroyed if they didn't repent.

So, 40 Jubilee years is 2,000 years. Jesus is our sign - to "speak against" to reveal what's in our heart for Judgment.

Again, your pride is your downfall, and your reading comprehension is pathetic.

The scripture clearly said, "And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk."

And it also said "Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent."

Thie means, coming from the seashore, Jonah was able to enter the city on his first day's walk. And for him to traverse the entire city (upto its other end) so that he can warn all of its inhabitants, he has to walk another 3 days.

And stop calling me your brother, because you are clearly from your father the devil, which clearly I am not.

It wasn't a whale. It was a submarine of the Annunaki who picked up Jonah and airlifted him to Niniveh. Not as many stories about USOs as UFO's, but there's a few. So Jonah got a free ride from the Mediteranean to Sumeria.

Are you saying that the first time God commanded Jonah to go to Nineveh, Jonah had the option to obey the command weeks, months, or years after receiving the command, and not obey it immediately?

Are you suggesting that God had no sense of urgency when He commanded Jonah to go to Nineveh the first time?

Why should there be a delay between the first time God commanded Jonah to go to Nineveh and the second time He did after Jonah disobeyed?

Shouldn't God have said the second time he commanded Jonah to go to Nineveh that since he already delayed his mission for 3 days, he should now move faster when going to Nineveh in order to make up for lost time?

You do realize that by delaying the issuance of the second command to go to Nineveh, the Ninevites will continue with their wickedness for weeks ,months, or years without repenting because no prophet came to warn them?

1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”

God made Jonah His watchman for the people of Nineveh just like He made Ezekiel His watchman for Israel, and Jonah would have been made accountable for every Ninevite who died in their sins while Jonah delayed in delivering God's message (as you suggested).

17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.

Muzzle, I agree with you.

And I like the NLT version better. It's easier to understand.

Jonah 3:1-15

New Living Translation (NLT)
Jonah Goes to Nineveh

3 Then the Lord spoke to Jonah a second time: 2 “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh, and deliver the message I have given you.”

3 This time Jonah obeyed the Lord’s command and went to Nineveh, a city so large that it took three days to see it all.[a] 4 On the day Jonah entered the city, he shouted to the crowds: “Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!” 5 The people of Nineveh believed God’s message, and from the greatest to the least, they declared a fast and put on burlap to show their sorrow.

6 When the king of Nineveh heard what Jonah was saying, he stepped down from his throne and took off his royal robes. He dressed himself in burlap and sat on a heap of ashes. 7 Then the king and his nobles sent this decree throughout the city:

“No one, not even the animals from your herds and flocks, may eat or drink anything at all. 8 People and animals alike must wear garments of mourning, and everyone must pray earnestly to God. They must turn from their evil ways and stop all their violence. 9 Who can tell? Perhaps even yet God will change his mind and hold back his fierce anger from destroying us.”

10 When God saw what they had done and how they had put a stop to their evil ways, he changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened.

Georgia and Armenia and NOT Northern Iraq!

I always thought Niniveh must be located near a sea shore as the prophet Jonah was taken there via a big fish/whale.

Modern day Mosul, Iraq - supposedly the location of Nineveh is located deep inland, and far away from any sea shore that it will take prophet Jonah several days journey to get there coming from any known sea in that area.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

The whale's journey, I believe, must have been the Meditteranean sea coming from Israel, then to the Aegean Sea, then the Sea of Marmara, and finally to the Black Sea, where Jonah was vomitted near the shores of Georgia. The ruins of Mosul, Iraq, is just part of the vast empire of ancient Assyria, and not its capital Niniveh.

If my theory is correct, then Georgia and Armenia, as the King of Assyria, together with its allies, Russia, China, and Iran, will attack Israel soon.

It is easy to sea why Armenia will be involved in a future catastrophic war with Israel.

Israel has military presence in Azerbaijan, which israel might use as its base in attacking Iran. Armenia, Iran's ally and in territorial dispute with Azerbaijan, might attack Azerbaijan in defense of Iran.

And since Azerbaijan is Israel's ally, Israel will then attack Armenia.

2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.

3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, (Here Jonah travels to Nineveh) according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey.

4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, (When Jonah reached Nineveh, he traveled for one day into the interior of the city before he spoke) and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

Mosul, Iraq, supposedly the ancient city of Nineveh is located east of the Tigris river, and the Tigris river is located east of the Euphrates river.

This means, this city is nowhere near the Euphrates river and cannot be associated with it. If there is a river that this city can be associated with, it is the Tigris river.

Nineveh was an ancient Assyrian city on the eastern bank of the Tigris River, and capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. Its ruins are across the river from the modern-day major city of Mosul, in the Ninawa Governorate of Iraq.

7 therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the Euphrates— the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks

As for the Euphrates River, it appears to take its rise in Armenia, where Mount Ararat is. The mountain is still called by that name by the Armenians. It is where, according to scripture, the ark came to rest, and they say that considerable remnants of its wood and nails are still preserved there.

From there the Euphrates starts as a small stream at first, growing ever larger as it advances and sharing its name with the many rivers that empty into it. It makes its way through Greater and Lesser Armenian and then proceeds on, dividing first the Syria that is properly called Euphratensis and then also the rest of Syria.

Having passed through this region, and the remaining part [of Syria], and having broken up the lands through which it passes into a series of convolutions of every sort with its crooked course, it draws near to Arabia. There its way takes it in a circle opposite the Red Sea as it loops around a wide region, after which it turns toward the Caecias wind, midway between north and east. It then heads toward the Tigris River, although it cannot join its whole self to it, but wasting part of itself on the way, it empties the remained of itself into the Tigris quite near Susa, this remainder being a mighty stream quite capable of carrying ships. There it also abandons its name and flows with the Tigris down to the Persian Gulf. The land between these two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, is called Mesopotamia."

The 1st century Judaeo-Roman historian Flavius Josephus gives the following statement: "Ashur lived at the city of Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others”

 Quoting: Wikipedia


Asshur, the founder and original king of Assyria, built 3 cities, although Nineveh was chosen as his capital.

As such, Rehoboth and Calah must have palaces, libraries and all other facilities available in Nineveh as well.

The city found in Mosul, Iraq may have been one of these 3 cities, but not necessarily Nineveh (which I believe to be in Armenia).

I find it interesting that so may posters have contended with OP in his interpretation of the scriptures, but they are all wrong and he is right (in his own eyes). I guess when he gets to heaven, he will tell God that He (God) is wrong too.

You people are quick to judge, which is why God will judge you quickly, and show you no mercy.

Re: OMG! Ancient Niniveh, the capital of Assyria is actually ....
God compared the king of Assyria and his allies to the river Euphrates for a reason.

The flow of the River will also be the movement of the king and his great armies.

Since the Euphrates starts in Armenia and then passes through Turkey before reaching Syria, similarly, Armenia will first make war with its enemy Turkey and win this war overwhelmingly.

And since the king is a devout christian, he will then seek to regain control of all sacred christian sites in Turkey that fell under muslim control, most importantly, the Hagia Sophia. The king will then install christian Turks to lead the government of Turkey to keep its tight control over this conquered country.

After winning the bloody war with Turkey, it will then move on to "liberate" Syria and the Palestinians from Israel's control after Israel wins its coming war with these countries.

Much to the dismay of Syria and the Palestinians, the king of Assyria will seek to regain control of all sacred christian sites in their territories, most importantly, the Umayyad mosque (which was formerly the Basilica of St. John the Baptist). The king will also install christian Syrians and Palestinians to lead the government of these countries to keep its tight control.

1 Moreover the Lord said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz.

2 And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

3 And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the Lord to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz.

4 For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.
 Quoting: Isaiah 8


Finally, the king of Assyria will be joined by Egypt and together they will invade Israel.

18 In that day the Lord will whistle for flies from the Nile delta in Egypt and for bees from the land of Assyria. 19 They will all come and settle in the steep ravines and in the crevices in the rocks, on all the thornbushes and at all the water holes. 20 In that day the Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates River —the king of Assyria —to shave your head and private parts, and to cut off your beard also.
 Quoting: Isaiah 7


God will use the king of Assyria to humble Israel and to punish it for its past and future excesses. Any attempt by Israel and its allies to resist or fight the coming invasion of Armenia and its allies will be like resisting the razor blade of a barber, which will only result to serious bloodletting.
