"IRAQ'S FUTURE IN BIBLE PROPHECY"
Genesis 10; Isaiah 13;- Jteremiiah 5r05-; Revelat.on 17-A8
March 3, 1991
Does the Bible have anything to say about the country of Iraq? We learned last week that the
old ancient Babylon is modern day Iraq. We learned that Iraq's present leader, Saddam Hussein,
refers to himself as the modern day Nebuchadnezzar. King Nebuchadnezzar was the ruler over
ancient Babylon that held God's people, Israel, in captivity. The same battle in Old Testament
days exists still today.

1. Rebellion. (Genesis 10:8-10)
Ham was the son of Noah - virtually all of Israel's major enemies came from the family
Notice Nimrod - the Hebrew word basis "marad" meaning rebel. Nimrod was a rebel
and the cities he founded were rebellious cities. Due to Nimrod being a hunter he gained
a strong position of leadership. Nimrod used his God-given skills for conquest and his
own good. This was the beginning of Babylon. Genesis 11:1-9 tells us Nimrod led a
united charge against God. He built the Tower of Babel (Babylon). It was their effort
to become God. But the Lord confused their efforts in judgment. So Babylon (Iraq)
has been rebellious to God and His ways since the beginning.
2. Demonology (Revelation 18:2)
All evil and demon or occult comes out of Iraq.
Astrology goes back to ancient Babylon.
New Age theology comes from the den of demons ...
