I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is!

1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq .

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was 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 Nineveh - which is in Iraq ...

9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered 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 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.

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!) Hmmmmmmm?!

English: "The First Thanksgiving at Plymo...
English: "The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth" (1914) By Jennie A. Brownscombe (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It is hard to believe but in a few days, those of us in the United States, will celebrate our annual Thanksgiving Day. A time set aside to remind all of America to once again look up, and thank our Creator for the abundant blessings we all enjoy. Someone once said that the road to degradation and sin begins with an ungrateful spirit. People have abundance but want more, and are not grateful for what they have.  This we have seen in young and old alike. So how can we turn this around? Let me suggest a couple of things that might help: First, look around you and count all the things you have that others might not have. Begin with the tangibles such as job, house, clothing, health, etc., etc.  Next, count the intangibles such as friends, family, purpose, the opportunity to live here in the United States enjoying relative peace and prosperity, and so on.  Now ask yourself how you were able to accumulate all of this. Some might be so arrogant as to say "I earned it myself." That attitude is the first step toward degradation and sin. We need to look to our Creator, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and express our thanks to Him for being so good to us. We don't deserve it, but by His grace we have it, and we ought to thank Him for His goodness towards us. Remember that all assets belong to God. We are simply stewards of His property. It does not belong to us. Thank Him for His trusting you to care for His property.  Thanksgiving means a lot more than eating turkey.

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
1 Timothy 4:4

I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge--
1 Corinthians 1:4,5

A "Must Read" tribute to Veterans

English: BOISE, Idaho (Aug. 24, 2010) Sailors ...
English: BOISE, Idaho (Aug. 24, 2010) Sailors present the colors during a Veteran's Tribute on the Veterans Affairs Campus during Boise Navy Week, one of 20 Navy Weeks planned across America this year. Navy Weeks are designed to show Americans the investment they have made in their Navy and increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.

He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Joe has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Veteran died today.

He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Veteran died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young,
But the passing of a Veteran
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Veteran,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever-waffling stand?

Or would you want a Veteran
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Veteran,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Veteran,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his likes again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Veteran's part,
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:
