    IRAQ IN THE BIBLE -- INTERESTING FACTS1. 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 3 Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (that's good news 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. 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 & theTower of Babel was built in Iraq -- Genesis 10:8-32 & 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 -- Esther. The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq -- Nahum. 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 with it than Iraq.

    Sorry I missed this post, as I see it was posted a few days ago, but I also want to mention about Iraq being associated with Assyria.In the latter days we read in Micah 5:6-7And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.I would like your insights on these verses specifically, but for sure it seems that Israel will turn on them and the roles reversed. Today, America ousted Sadaam Husein and occupies that land of the Assyrians, our previous captors. In previous generations, the British did likewise.
