Nimrud was the ancient capital of Assyria until the time of King Sennacherib, who moved the capital to Nineveh. Sennacherib was the Assyrian king who came against Jerusalem in the days of Hezekiah (2 Kings 18:13). His predecessor had captured Samaria and deported the remaining Israelites to Assyria, but Sennacherib tried to do the same with Judah.
Nimrud obviously bears the name of Nimrod, the founder of both Babylon and Assyria (Genesis 10:8-12). So it is certainly prophetic that last month (March 5, 2015) Nimrud was destroyed by ISIS.
While this act has horrified archeologists, it is also a sign of the overthrow of Mystery Babylon and prophetic Assyria. It is no coincidence that this historic event coincides with the transfer of authority from the kingdoms Nimrod founded to the Kingdom of God and the saints of the Most High.
