Biblical History Interesting facts

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 and Eve were created in Iraq -- Genesis 2:7-8

Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq -- Genesis 3:1-6

Nimrod established Babylon and the Tower of Babel was built in Iraq -- Genesis 10: 8-9 7 and 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 and Acts 7:2-4

Isaac's bride came from Iraq -- Genesis 24:3-4 and 10

Jacob Spent 20 years in Iraq -- Genesis 27:42-45 and 31:38

The first world Empire was in Iraq -- Daniel 1:1-2 and 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 of Revelation has prophecies against Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq -- Revelation 17 and 18

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

I just have one question, you said;

Eden was in Iraq.

I thought God planted a Garden east of Eden, could it have still been in Eden?

Eden was in Iraq -- Genesis 2:10-14
How do we know this?  The Garden of Eden was before the flood, so the Tigris and Euphrates of pre-flood and post-flood are most likely completely different rivers.

Petro
Genesis 2:8.  And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

The topography of the terrain did not change so the flow of water in the natural drainage of the land would remain the same.

You don't think the topography would have changed?  Riddle me this:  was the Grand Canyon formed by the Colorado River after millions of years, or by the flood.?

I believe the Grand Canyon was formed by the flow of water in the natural drainage of the land over a time period which has not ended. Man calls this natural drainage flow, "the Colorado river". It is probably what the natives to this part of the world called it for many moons before the European came.
