Iraq

No matter what your political, or religious persuasion may be, I think that you will find this intersting.

The Garden of Eden was in Iraq.

The cradle of civilizatiion was in Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq.

Noah built the ark in Iraq.

The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.

Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq.

Isaac's wife, Rebekah, was from Nahor, which is in Iraq.

Assyria, which captured the ten tribes of Israel, is in Iraq.

Babylon, which destroyed Israel, is in Iraq.

Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq.

The three Hebrew children were in the fiery furnace in Iraq.

Belshazzar, the King of Babylon, saw the "writing on the wall" in Iraq.

Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.

Ezekiel preached in Iraq.

Peter preached in Iraq.

The "Empire of Man," described in Revelation, in the bible, is called Babylon, which is a city in Iraq.

Israel is the most mentioned nation in the bible, the second most often mentioned is Iraq, however, Iraq is not the name that is used in the bible.

The names used in the Bible for Iraq are Babylon, the Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia.

Mesopotamia means "between the two rivers," more precisely, between the Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers.

The name Iraq means, "country with deep roots" and is a very significant country in the Bible.

No other country, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq.

The symbol representing America is an eagle, which makes this verse from the Koran, the Islamic Bible, rather interesting:

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.

Another irony? The particular verse in the Koran, 9:11

Just something to ponder.

Postscript:

A reader brought to my attention that the informatiion, while implying that the verse quoted from the Koran refers to the military action in Iraq, that it is actually a hoax.

Here's the link: Koran 9:11 refers to the war in iraq?-Fiction!

I've read this before... thanks for posting it again.

I have, too. It's been around for a long time, but I think it is interesting.

Probably, only those interested in biblical prophecy are interested in reading it, so I thought I would post it for those who haven't read it.

The Koran is the Muslim bible.

Jan said...

Yes..that's what I had in the post first, then changed it to Islamic...thinking of how many Muslims I would offend, seeing as how they would take that whole Sept.11 incident PERSONALLY.

But ssriously...

The followers of Islamic religion, Muslims, believe the revelatations given to Mohammad, and others, was recorded in the Quran, and consider it to be the flawless word of Allah.

So, is it not proper to call the Koran an Islamic bible? If it's not, I stand corrected!

Jan said...

Make that 'seriously'..LOL

Jan said...

...and if any of you out there have any 'revelatations' let me know, okay? (referring to my comment up there) I simply MUST start checking for typos before posting!

It sounds good, but I hate to tell you this--it ain't so: Truth Or Fiction

Jan said...

Hmmm..that is interesting,DC..just goes to show you that you can't believe everything you hear, and only half of what you see!

I know that has been making the rounds for a long time, and is the kind of stuff that should be checked out, before being taken as the gospel truth.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
