The Reemergence of Assyria? Triple Play - DVD, MP3 and Digital Copy. The rapid rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has caused many in the world to wonder at its apocalyptic implications. We will examine this emerging problem with what I like to call the “Issachar Challenge” Therefore, we need to address three questions concerning this area of the world: -What is its history? - Who are its leaders? - What is its prophetic destiny? When you consider the coalescences of current events in the former region of Assyria with Biblical precedents and prophecies it should not seem strange to see this region of the world once again at the centre of the world’s prophetic stage. The question is, “What should we be doing during this time of great uncertainty?” Join Ron Matsen from the Executive Briefing Room of The River Lodge, New Zealand as he examines the past, present, and future events associated with this troublesome region of the world.
