Baghdad looks like it's about to go down to Islamic Militants.
Some say Baghdad is Babylon? What happens when it falls?
The stuff is really about to hit the fan.
Hope Israel is staying on guard 24/7.
Because Baghdad falling is BAD news for them!
Look up the prophetic passages that talk about “the Assyrian” in an end-times context. Mosul is the modern city on the site of Nineveh, which was the capital of the Assyrian empire. And Baghdad is near the site of Babylon. Could the Antichrist turn out to be the leader of a Muslim caliphate based in Mesopotamia?
Easy! Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice all blame it on a You Tube video.
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are considered to be one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. They were built in the ancient city-state of Babylon, near present-day Al Hillah, Babil, in Iraq.
Babylon (bÄbËÉlÅn) [key], ancient city of Mesopotamia. One of the most important cities of the ancient Middle East, it was on the Euphrates River and was north of the cities that flourished in S Mesopotamia in the 3d millennium B.C. It became important when Hammurabi made it the capital of his kingdom of Babylonia. The patron god of Babylon, Marduk (identical with Bel), became a leading deity in the Neo-Babylonian pantheon. The city was destroyed (c.689 B.C.) by the Assyrians under Sennacherib, and its real spendor belongs to the later period of Babylonia after the city was rebuilt. The brilliant color and luxury of Babylon became legendary from the days of Nebuchadnezzar (d. 562 B.C.). The Hanging Gardens were one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The walls of Babylon, its palace, and the processional way with the famous Ishtar Gate were decorated with colorfully glazed brick. Among the Hebrews (who suffered the Babylonian captivity under Nebuchadnezzar) and the later Greeks the city was famed for its sensual living. Under the rule of Nabonidus the city was captured (538 B.C.) by Cyrus the Great and was used as one of the administrative capitals of the Persian Empire. In 275 B.C. its inhabitants were removed to Seleucia, which replaced Babylon as a commercial center.
NOT that this is related but isn’t this coming Sunday the day the Pope and a muslim pray together at the Vatican? What timing!
It will be a blood bath. Iran will invade to save their brothers and we will stay out.
I’m afraid of the same...
We just spent how many years in Iraq and lost how many soldiers.. only for Obama to turn it back over to the terrorists?!
“Media” and “Persia” are worthwhile biblical word studies too. Look to the prophets. Whatever hasn’t been fulfilled yet will be.
So Babylon is near Al Hillah, Babil, in Iraq then?
Hash Tag #ObamasfaultIraqisaredying
Obama lied, Iraqis died..
And remember 60 miles was a great distance back then.
What’s the status of that area in regards to who controls it now?
Meanwhile - back in Washington, the Pentagon is making sure someone in jail get's their sex change operation.
I thought it was more than 450 million dollars?
Grand Ayatollah Sistani: Shia call to arms.
And the State Department is wringing its hands over "global warming."
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people,and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent:they are confederate against thee:
6 the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ish'maelites; of Moab, and the Hag'arenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Am'alek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assur also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot
Daniel 11 excerpt:
40 ¶ And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
Use the map in your Bible to understand this.
What I read earlier mentioned $450M plus a bunch of gold bullion so yep, much more! This is gonna get real ugly there....
King of the North is likely another way of referring to “The Assyrian.” From the Israelite perspective, what comes from Mesopotamia comes from the north.
I had read it was in the billions with a B.
So yah.. not good.
Islamic militants taking over country by country.. soon we will have 5 or 6 Irans. All orchestrated by Obama.. or his handlers.
Since the hanging gardens existed in what is now Iraq and Babylon was part of what is now Iraq, I would suggest that it has fallen many times.
Are we living in the end times of the Bible??? Maybe but I have not seen the things that would make me say definitely yes.
So what happens when Baghdad falls??? Wait a while and see
If someone puts on shoes in the Middle East, it’s going to be called a sign of the end times. I hold firmly to the belief that it will only come when even believers aren’t looking for it. You could have people claiming that every year for the next century was going to be the year, and they’d all be wrong.
Saints preserve us
I agree but these last 5 years have been different. Really these last 10 years.
Ever since 9/11 things changed.
Things began moving a lot faster. The birth pangs increased.
Libya fell, they tried to take over Syria, Iraq is falling.
I thought the biblical Whore of Babylon was a metaphor for the USA?
History is replete with nations rising and falling. Iraq is not unique, and its proximity to Israel doesn’t make it special.
I’ve heard this theory as well...
What happened the last time it fell?
The more I study and the more I see happen, the more I believe you are likely correct.
You might find this interesting.
I wonder if they have billboards in Iraq with Bush’s face and the caption, “Miss me yet”.
I would guess once the Rapture and end times as a evangelical concepts stop being taught. Since they are big cash cows now, I don’t look for it to be any time soon.
But the Bible says to “Watch” and “Pray.”
The rapture and end times stuff can be taught until the people teaching and selling it are blue in the face.
But those that are blind and lost.. will never see it no matter what happens on this Earth.
It could happen in the twinkle of an eye.
I think what we’re seeing right now is old scores being settled. Remember muslims don’t work and play well with other muslims unless they are the same brand. Most al quaeda are sunni, I believe. The shias in iraq, which are a slightly in the majority, are being slaughtered right now, and the iranians (also moslty shia) are sending troops to suppport “their” people. I think we’re going to see some semblance of a replay of the iran-iraq war, with iran deploying NBC weapons. Not a good scene.
Just my 2 cents worth
Meanwhile in America.. Iraq is a billion light years away.. and Kim Kardashian is the only thing they know.
How many islamic militants are there that they can take over the country in a matter of days?
