Iraq, Babylon, and Biblical Prophecies

Ok, I just got this forwarded to me in an email–one of those notorious chain mail emails that you’re supposed to forward to 13 people in the 15 minutes after reading it so that something good will happen to you at 11:11 p.m. tonight. Not too exciting. However, what IS exciting….the message. Wow! Good grief.  Here it is, in all its glory. Unfortunately, I could not duplicate the large 45 pt. font or green color.

And all I gotta say is….since I’m posting this online, which surely accounts for thirteen people in thirteen minutes, someone damn better call me and say they love me at 11:11 p.m. tonight. I won’t be online so it has to be a phone call. Any takers? Hmmm? Anyone?

And I quote, keeping all original punctuation, meaning random exclamation points:

“READ ALL OF THIS ONE, IT IS INTERESTING!

READ DOWN TO THE VERY BOTTOM HIGHLIGHTED IN GREEN,

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 WAS IRAQ, IS 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 NINEVAH-WHICH IS IN IRAQ

9. ASSYRIA, WHICH IS IN IRAQ, COMQUERED 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 NATOIN 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!) Hmmmmmmmmmm?!

I BETTER NOT HEAR OF ANYONE BREAKING THIS ONE OR SEE IT DELETED.

THIS IS A RIBBON FOR SOLDIERS FIGHTING IN IRAQ.

PASS IT ON TO EVERYONE AND PRAY.

SOMETHING GOOD WILL HAPPEN TO YOU TONIGHT AT 11:11 PM.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE.

SOMEONE WILL EITHER CALL YOU OR WILL TALK TO YOU ONLINE AND SAY THAT THEY LOVE YOU.

DO NOT BREAK THIS CHAIN.

SEND THIS TO 13 PEOPLE IN THE NEXT 15 MINUTES.

GO.”

    If you were living East of me (in Central time zone) I’d call you in 15 minutes…but I don’t want to stay up until 12:11 my time!

    I love you!

    I’ve seen this one before. I think I broke it, though. Interesting reading.
