 Iraq

My aunt and I had been discussing this on the phone yesterday, and today, she E-mailed this to me. I wanted to share it with y'all.

Did you know...
1. The garden of Eden was in Iraq. (It sure doesn't look much like Paradise on earth today thanks to Saddam.)
2. Mesopotamia which is now Iraq was the cradle of civilization!
3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.
4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq.
6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor which is in Iraq.
7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq.
9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel.
10. Amos cried out in Iraq.
11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem.
12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq.
13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (that's good to know that JESUS has been in Iraq too as the 4th person in the fiery furnace!)
14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing on the wall" in Iraq (which hopefully Sadaam will too!)
15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.
16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq.
17. The wise men were from Iraq. (where are the "wise" men today?)
18. Peter preached in Iraq.
19. The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called Babylon which was a city in Iraq!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And you have probably seen this one. Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible. But do you know which nation is second? It is Iraq!
However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible. The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia. The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The name Iraq, means country with deep roots. Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible. Here's why.
* Eden was in Iraq -- Genesis 2:10-14
* Adam & Eve were created in Iraq -- Genesis 2:7-8
* Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq -- Genesis 3:1-6
* Nimrod established Babylon & Tower of Babel was built in Iraq -- Genesis 10:8-12, 11:1-4
* The confusion of the languages took place in Iraq -- Genesis 11:5-11
* Abraham came from a city in Iraq -- Genesis 11:31 & Acts 7:2-4
* Isaac's bride came from Iraq -- Genesis 24:3-4 & 10
* Jacob spent 20 years in Iraq -- Genesis 27:42-45 & 31:38
* The first world Empire was in Iraq -- Daniel 1:1-2 & 2:36-38
* The greatest revival in history was in a city in Iraq -- Jonah 3
* The events of the book of Esther took place in Iraq
* The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq
* The book or Revelation has prophecies against Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq -- Revelation 17 & 18
No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated it than Iraq.

Did he finish it? Had heard that it was in process.

Is it in Daniel?
(The prophecy)

 Re:

That's not entirely true; the Old City still remains a ruin, fulfilling biblical prophecy. Hussein wanted to rebuild it and built a new city nearby, but the Old City remains a ruin.

Jeremiah 51:64 "Just so shall Babylon sink down and not rise again, because of the calamity that I am going to bring upon her; and they will become exhausted.’" Thus far are the words of Jeremiah."

 Re:

All mention of Babylon in the book of Daniel are more talking about events in Daniel's life, not prophecies he made.

Thats true Jason, but there seems to be prophesy's on both sides. One on side that the ancient babylon will never be inhabited agian, and on the other side that it will be re-built and will be part of the end-times scenario.

----
Hardly known for humility, Saddam Hussein had thousands of statues and posters of himself placed in every corner of Iraq, including a huge portrait of himself and Nebuchadnezzar at the entrance to the ruins of Babylon. This not being enough to satisfy his ego, Saddam copied Nebuchadnezzar by having his name and praises inscribed on countless bricks used in the rebuilding.

One repeated inscription reads: "This was built by Saddam Hussein, son of Nebuchadnezzar, to glorify Iraq." Of course, we know whom the glory was meant for. And yes, Saddam is a true son of the tyrant Nebuchadnezzar who declared: "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built ...by the might of my power, and for the honor of my majesty?" (Daniel 4:30). The Creator of the universe immediately sent him to eat with the beasts of the field.

And also these two articles are of some intrest proving the point that there are two babylons prophesied about in scripture:
