The details in this series of prophecies are both remarkable and hard to ignore. Interestingly, as a note, much of this Bible Prophecy study was first written before the fall of Saddam Hussein, which seems to show these Bible prophecies concerning Iraq are now in process and on schedule.

Study your history books and the Bible. Ancient Babylon was conquered by just two nations, the Medes and the Persians led by Cyrus the Persian , without firing a shot! Look at a globe to see where the US is compared to Iraq Babylon … then study your history books. The Persians took ancient Babylon without a major battle. They first lowered the river by diverting it, and then snuck in at night to capture the Palace.
The judgment against Iraq Babylon is shown as both a pre-cursor and a major part of the coming Apocalypse and Armageddon. Apparently this coming destruction of Iraq will somehow be linked to the coming Apocalypse and Armageddon when God will judge ALL the nations and people of the world …. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the Sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the Moon shall not cause her light to shine.
And I God will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, this means all nations and people and will lay low the arrogance haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; very few will survive even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
It is interesting that it was the Medes the Kurds in northern Iraq who Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons on and killed an estimated 50, These same Kurds Medes just recently declared themselves an independent nation. Both Turkey and Iran are now enemies of the Kurds. This army from the north will have no compassion on the men, women, or children, of Southern Iraq, and will not be interested or swayed by money, silver, or gold to stop their deadly march and slaughter ….
Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. God warned He would one day raise up foreigners from every side to rise against Iraq Babylon …. Foreigners will come and winnow her, blowing her away as chaff. They will come from every side to rise against her in her day of trouble. Iraq Babylon will once again become a powerful enemy against Israel. No one will be spared! Young and old alike will be completely destroyed.
They will fall dead in the land of the Babylonians, slashed to death in her streets. He is still their God, even though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One Messiah of Israel. Save yourselves! For her sins have reached to Heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Raise the battle flag against Babylon! Reinforce the guard and station the watchmen.
I will dry up her river Euphrates , her water supply, see prophecies of the Apocalypse and Babylon will become a heap of rubble, haunted by jackals.
It will be an object of horror and contempt, without a single person living there. And while they lie inflamed with all their wine, I will prepare a different kind of feast for them. The world can scarcely believe its eyes at her fall! The sea has risen over Babylon; she is covered by its waves. Her cities now lie in ruins; she is a dry wilderness where no one lives or even passes by.
He warns all those living in Iraq and anywhere in the world who will hear and believe His Word while there is still time ….
Daniel acknowledged both sin and guilt, which had been incurred in two ways—first by disobedience to the Law of Moses, and secondly by disobedience to the prophets who came after Moses. He did not see sin as merely a bad habit, but as something ingrained in the people that had brought on divine judgment.

It also resulted in the need for forgiveness. Here Daniel confessed that to God belong forgiveness and mercy, and that forgiveness was needed. Daniel concluded the first part of his prayer by describing the punishment for sin and guilt. That punishment, captivity in Babylon, confirmed the words of the prophets who had predicted it and confirmed the Law of Moses, which taught that divine judgment would come as a result of disobedience. The second part of the prayer verses is a plea for mercy. Furthermore, the righteousness of God required him to fulfill his promises, and therefore he should do so at the end of the year period.
Then, while Daniel was presenting his supplications, he was interrupted. He apparently had intended to say more, when Gabriel arrived. Although it had not been practiced for seven decades, Daniel showed his longing for the return from captivity and for the rebuilding of the temple by remembering the sacrifice.
Geology and End-Times Prophecy
Here it is obvious Daniel had been thinking in terms of years—specifically the 70 years of captivity. Daniel had assumed that the captivity would end after 70 years and that the kingdom would be established after 70 years. For Jews, whether they are in the land or outside the land, their city is always Jerusalem and not any other. Daniel was next told by Gabriel that the 70 sevens are to accomplish six purposes.
The first is to finish transgression. This act of rebellion or transgression is to come under complete control so that it will no longer flourish. The second purpose of the 70 sevens is to make an end of sins. Even these sins are to be put to an end and taken away.
This, too, is quite in keeping with predictions by the prophets that proclaim that in the messianic kingdom, sinning would cease from Israel Isaiah , Ezekiel , , Jeremiah The third purpose is to make reconciliation for iniquity. In fact, it is by means of this atonement that the first two purposes will also be accomplished, that of finishing the transgression and making an end of sins.
The fourth purpose of the 70 sevens is to bring in everlasting righteousness. It is this very age that Daniel had been expecting to see established after the 70 years of captivity, but now he is told that will only be after the year period. The fifth purpose is to seal up vision and prophecy. Thus, vision and prophecy are to be completely fulfilled. Both oral and written prophecy will cease with the final fulfillment of all revelations. The final purpose of the 70 sevens is to anoint the most holy.
Daniel was clearly told when the 70 sevens would begin their countdown. Not everything in Persian chronology is as clear as we would like to have it, and there are still some gaps in our knowledge of history. But from what biblical and historical records we do have, there are four possible answers to the question of which decree the passage refers to. One is the decree of Cyrus, issued somewhere between B. Another option is the decree of Darius Hystaspes Ezra , issued in the year B.
A third possibility is the decree of Artaxerxes to Ezra Ezra issued in B. The last option is the decree of Artaxerxes to Nehemiah Nehemiah , issued in the year B. This decree specifically concerned the rebuilding of the walls around Jerusalem. Of these four possibilities, only the first and fourth are valid in fulfilling the wording Gabriel gave to Daniel. It goes beyond the purpose of this article to deal with the various arguments of either option, but one thing is certain: by the year B. The 70 sevens are divided into three separate units—seven sevens, 62 sevens and one seven.
The obvious conclusion is this: If Messiah was not on earth years after a decree was issued to rebuild Jerusalem, then Daniel was a false prophet and his book has no business being in the Hebrew Scriptures.
Most mainline churches are "joining hands" toward an ecumenical one world religious system. They talk about ecumenical dialogue; ecumenical worship services; and ecumenical agreements. This of course is exactly what the antichrist will desire. A famous preacher said, "The reason for this is that the devil can swallow them up in one big gulp.
