    my aunt sent this to me....THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT IS TRUE....

    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 prophecyassociated with it than Iraq.
