And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.Isaiah 30:25 (KJV)
IN this precious footage we see first hand how the events of September 11th bring to pass bible prophecy, in this literal modern day fulfillment of Isaiah 30:25.
Understanding the Prophecy in Context
Though the scriptures are multi-faceted, speaking in past, present and future all at the same time; and thus never pass away (i.e. the prophetic tense), a clear facet of Isaiah 30:25 indefinitely has come to pass before our very eyes for all to see at the September 11th Memorial:
In biblical language mountains and hills are symbolic of places of authority; whether it be of the worldly government, the church of God, etc. For example, consider Zechariah 8:3, Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.
In the case of Isaiah 30:25 — in context of the footage presented — we can clearly discern how the September 11th Memorial is undoubtedly recognized by every high mountain and every high hill of the earth (likely even beyond, as the scripture suggests!).
Though typically in biblical symbology water is a representation of the healing, love, and inevitably the Word of God (John 4:14 and 7:38); telling us, in the case of Isaiah 30:25, the elite of the earth — or perhaps even the holy and biblically discerned people of God — the scriptures began to open up in new endless facets of understanding after the events of September 11th. But in this case, we see something more blatant that almost anyone can perceive, as literal streams of water gush out of the September 11th Memorial. —This is without a doubt a facet of the scripture being fulfilled.
With this understanding, we can now unlock the meaning behind, In the day of the great slaughter when the towers fall. On the surface it seems the interpretation would be literal; meaning the very DAY of September 11th; yet as the word of God never fails to leave us in reverent awe, we can discern the context would also refer to, THE DAYS of the great slaughter, when the towers fall [or rather, in this instance, “fell”]. Thus inviting that the Memorial will not be here for us to commemorate forever, as the next verse of Isaiah 30:26 helps us understand: Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
May it be understood: O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (1 Corinthians 15:55) — that the dead are not remembered in death, but will rise at the Resurrection (see John 11:25 and 1 Corinthians 15:12-54 for example)!
Truly, seeing the September 11th Memorial in the fulfillment of such an everlasting biblical lens, it becomes something matchless and precious in our sight — memorializing the Memorial itself! Thus we can be comforted that though it may not stand with us throughout God’s plan for our times, it surely will be revered and remembered throughout HIStory without end.
