Assyriously Amazing: Fan Club Hits 85,000
Mon., Jun. 18. 2007 10:20am EDT
Our online fan club now has over 85,000 members, having reached that mark last week. We've added 10,000 members in the past seven months.
If you think that's amazing, consider this: That's still 100,000 fewer people than the number of Assyrians who fell by the hand of the Angel of the LORD, as told in 2 Kings 19, Isaiah 37, and 2 Chronicles 32.
2 Kings 19:35-36
That night the angel of the LORD went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies! So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke camp and withdrew. He returned to Nineveh and stayed there.
If you've never read the amazing story of how God delivered King Hezekiah and the land of Judah from the world's greatest (and cruelest) superpower at that time, you should check it out. In the early days of ApologetiX, 10 years before we recorded "Smells Like Thirtysomething Spirit," we did different parody of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" about that particular story. It was called "Sounds Like Mean Assyrians" and appeared on our earliest homemade studio cassette, "Parable Guy."
