Where is he who counted the towers? (Osama Bin Laden, Isaiah)

The sign of this change are right across the earth…

And upon every high mountain and upon every high hill there will be brooks and streams of water

in the day of the great slaughter

[the day of the Lord], when the towers fall [and all His enemies are destroyed]. – Isa 30:25

Why rain? Rain is a sign of blessing and it comes when God’s Presence increases (see this bible study on rain)

He will be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth. – Psalms 72:6

For the soil which has drunk the rain that repeatedly falls upon it and produces vegetation useful to those for whose benefit it is cultivated partakes of a blessing from God. – Heb 6:7

The towers

That phrase “when the towers fall” in Isa 30:25 popped out to me many years ago. I noticed that “towers” are mentioned in several of the prophesies which are coming true. I kept quiet about this and never wrote about it, because I didnt’t understand it.

I shared about this with a (seemingly) random man at MMC 2009 and he asked me if it was possible that the towers were the really famous ones which “fell”. At the time I hardly replied, stunned, I just turned the page and left it, ignored it. I told him it would be better not to think about that, because of the implications.

But it’s now much more than a year later, and those scripture verses have been repeatedly shown to be accurate. Indeed there was a great slaughter (see My sword is bathed in heaven) and indeed there are brooks and streams of water everywhere… so the evidence is strong that these words indeed point to those towers.

And it’s backed up by these verses just 8 chapters later…

Your mind will meditate on the terror: [asking]

Where is he who counted? Where is he who weighed the tribute?

Where is he who counted the towers? – Isaiah 33:18

And tell me… have we been meditating on terror? Since the towers fell, have we wondered “where is he?”. So let’s step back for a moment and ask WHO is he? Is this accurate? (See Blind yourselves now if you choose)

The person who we are prophesied to be looking for would have “counted” the towers. So there are more than one tower, and this person will have been seen to count them, and those towers fell down.

And indeed I have a clear memory of seeing “that” person on a clip on tv, as he sat in a room, he counted them, he giggled, he was saying to his colleagues to wait and be patient.

The tv commentary used this clip to prove to us viewers that he knew the metal sub-structure would heat up and weaken and melt and indeed the towers fell donwn, in a horrifically awful and painful experience for a nation and for the world.

I have not been able to find a copy of this clip. But it’s imprinted in my memory. Perhaps you remember seeing it on tv too?

UPDATE: 5 June 2011 – I found the clip and have got the audio, see below…


So we have the following:

  • water, streams, brooks everywhere
  • a great slaughter
  • falling towers (plural)
  • people thinking about terror related to the towers
  • asking where a particular man who is connected to the terror

I totally accept and recognise that many people may find this laughable. But if you think about it logically, it’s one heck of a co-incidence, don’t you think?

Imagine YHWH shooting an arrow in 500BC and it hits the bulls eye in 2000AD. That is what we are witnessing right now, in front of our eyes. (See Blind yourselves now if you choose)

And please let me remind you of my words in the “clapping” post

The thing to understand is that we – the world – are being set free. We are being liberated. The fruit of the evil that contained us is being destroyed. New clean and wonderful fruit is growing in it’s place, right now as we speak. – Clapping

Bin Laden

So WHO was the one who counted the towers?

In September 2001 Four aeroplanes are hijacked by men believed to be working for al-Qaeda. Two are flown into the World Trade Center in New York and one hits the Pentagon in Washington, while the fourth is brought down in a field in Pennsylvania. 3,000 people are killed in the attacks, the worst ever on American soil.

In May 2010 US President Barack Obama announces Bin Laden’s death.

WHERE was the person who counted the towers?

In Abbottabad, Pakistan.

WHAT were the towers?

They were the World Trade Center towers in New York.

Did Bin Laden actually watch the WTC fall?

According to scripture not only was he to be involved, but he will watch them, count them

Your mind will meditate on the terror: [asking]
Where is he who counted? Where is he who weighed the tribute?
Where is he who counted the towers? – Isaiah 33:18

The Pentagon released this video tape (NPR website, CSPAN White House daily briefing)…

Dec. 13, 2001 — The Pentagon has released a videotape of Osama bin Laden, that it says provides additional evidence that the al Qaeda leader is responsible for the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Administration officials say the tape shows bin Laden had specific knowledge of when and where those attacks would occur before they took place.

“[inaudible] We calculated in advance the number of casualties from the enemy, who would be killed based on the position of the tower,” bin Laden said, according to a translation released by the Pentagon along with the amateur videotape.

We calculated that the floors that would be hit would be three or four floors. I was the most optimistic of them all,” the Saudi-born militant is quoted as saying in apparent reference to the two hijacked jets that slammed into the World Trade Center.

“Due to my experience in this field, I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all we had hoped for,” the translation reads. – Source: ABC News


The person was to “count” the towers, and in fact the word counted is in the scripture twice. Right there in that extract Osama  clearly says twiceWe calculated“.  Calculated is surely the same as counted?

What is the significance of all this? Let me say it again… we are living in momentous times where 2,500 year old prophecy is being fulfilled.

Update: 5th June 2011

For the sake of completeness and to help us understand prophecy, I must state that the bible is not saying that Osama DID IT. The bible is reporting the context of our awareness – meaning, that our newspapres and our awareness is of this man who has fulfilled prophecy.

Did he actually do it? I don’t know. At the time of the bombings he claimed not…

Bin Laden says he wasn’t behind attacks -September 17, 2001 Posted: 11:21 AM EDT (1521 GMT)

DOHA, Qatar (CNN) — Islamic militant leader Osama bin Laden, the man the United States considers the prime suspect in last week’s terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, denied any role Sunday in the actions believed to have killed thousands.

In a statement issued to the Arabic satellite channel Al Jazeera, based in Qatar, bin Laden said, “The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it.

“I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons,” bin Laden’s statement said.

“I have been living in the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan and following its leaders’ rules. The current leader does not allow me to exercise such operations,” bin Laden said.

Bin Laden denies role 2nd time – Sarasota Herald – 17 Sept 2001

It is quite unusual for a terrorist group… intent on terrorizing their perceived enemy… to deny their moment of perceived victory.

Only in the future can we find out the truth about some very dark years… but right now we know one thing for sure… what God spoke through His prophet Isaiah over 2,500 years and those words are now coming to pass right in front of our eyes.
