Wow!

Read down to the very bottom , IT’LL GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS!!!

You don’t want to miss this! ((*_*) )

VERY INTERESTING-

1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq

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 (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth 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

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.

No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated With it than Iraq

And also, This is something to think about: Since America is
typically represented by an eagle.

Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages …

The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

Koran ( 9:11 ) – For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle.. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the
people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah;

And there was peace.

(Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!

**Note: Noticed this when I was in a cultural geography class having to find interesting country facts…my countries were Iraq and Uganda. It did not occur to me at the time that Iraq was the cradle of civilization (of course back then it was Mesopotamia)…it was a surprise reading this a few months ago…Iraq–the birthplace of Christianity as well…has been losing its identity the last several years due to not just the war but religious conflict (The area is a hotbed for conflict between three religions: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism)…In the case of Iraq–it is becoming an increasingly Islamic country unaccepting of Iraqi Christians…so they have had to leave the country…identity (something to think about myself–globally).
