Assyria God's Plunderers 

King of Assyria

Isaiah 10:5-6

5 "Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.

6 I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.


God raised up the Assyrians as an invincible army who would defeat the strong Northern Kingdom of Israel and bring down their strong walls.
Assyria was raised up by God to be plunderers who had one of the mightiest and most strategic military forces ever.
Military strategists today study the tactics of the Assyrians and admire their skill more than Alexander the Great and the Roman legions.
Only God could defeat this army (Isaiah 37:36).
