  11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem.
  12. The Prophet Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq.
  13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq.  Noting that the One Who became Jesus Christ, had also been in Iraq, 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. The Prophet Ezekiel preached in Iraq.

  18. The Apostle Peter preached the Gospel to the "lost 10 tribes of Israel" in Iraq.
  19. The "empire of Man" described in Revelation is called "Babylon"; which was a city in Iraq.
  20. Iraq is one of seven captor nations mentioned by the Prophet Isaiah, in his prophecy regarding Israel's 2nd captivity in these end-times.  It will be from those nations, plus from the "coastlands" (undisclosed in Scripture), out of which Israel will be miraculously delivered by God.  The Biblical name for Iraq, in that prophecy, is "Shinar"  (Isaiah 11: 11-12).
  21. There are other names in the Bible, many of course mentioned in prophecy, ;which refer to Iraq.  They are "Babylon," "Land of Shinar," and It is interesting to note that this later word means Between the two rivers,"  but more specificaly, between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.
  22. Though the nation of "Israel is mentioned the most often in the Bible; the second most-mentioned nation is Iraq.

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

  23. The name Iraq, means "Country with deep roots."  Thus Biblically, a very significant country.
  24. The region of Iraq is from where the ancient 10 captive nations of Israel commenced their trans-migrations into Central and Northern Europe; and from there ultimately unto the North American continent, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.


One final coincidence of recent occurrence should be noted:  To what significant extent -- if any -- involving Biblical prophecy that eventually may be derived from the following; God will reveal to His people at the right time: Since America is typically represented by an eagle; Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages.  The following verse is from the Islamic bible, the Koran (Chapter-9, verse-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.

Take careful notice of the above-quoted verse number ( 9:11 ).
Hmmmmmmm !?!

But also realize that Germany (prophetically the leader-nation of the "King of the North" power -- Daniel 11: 36-45), also is represented by the Eagle.  As the result of a premeditated provocation by the "King of the South" the "King of the North" mobilizes their huge "whirlwind" military strike-force, which may very well result in being the ones to cause, at least both a short-lived temporary "cleansing" of the land as well as a temporal form of "peace" to the Middle East; by completely destroying the Islamic threat to the world !
