God & Country
The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible. Noah Webster
An Acrostic on How To Search The Scriptures
earch the Scriptures Acts 17:11
Earnestly Joshua 1:8
Anxiously John 20:31
Regularly Psalm 1:2
Carefully 2 Timothy 2:15
Humbly James 1:22
J. Wilbur Chapman said, "Anything that dims my vision for Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps me in my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me; and I must, as a Christian turn away from it."
Iraq In The Bible
David L. Brown, Ph.D.
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, mean country with deep roots. Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible. Here’s why.
Adam & Ever were created in Iraq – >Genesis 2:7-8
Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq >Genesis 3:1-6
Nimrod established the Babylon & the Tower of Babel was built in Iraq – >Genesis 10: 8-9 7 & 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 & Acts 7:2-4
Isaac’s bride came from Iraq – >Genesis 24:3-4 & 10
Jacob Spent 20 years in Iraq – >Genesis 27:42-45 & 31:38
The first world Empire was in Iraq >– Daniel 1:1-2 & 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 & 18
No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq. If you would like to study this more, go my web site – www.LogosResourcePages.org and click on Iraq’s Bible History.
Point To Ponder
Let the fact of what our Lord suffered for you grip you, and you will never again be the same. Oliver B. Green
From The New England Primer 1777
Those of you who regularly read the Iron Pen page of this paper know that I collect antiquarian Bibles and religious books. I have a small little book on my shelf that was used to educate young children in this country for many years. Below are two paragraphs from this little edition.
Have communion with few
Be intimate with ONE,
Deal justly with all,
Speak evil with none.
Remove far from me vanities and lies; give me neither poverty nor
riches; feed me with food convenient for me; lest I be full and deny thee,
and say, Who is the Lord? Or lest I be poor, and steal and take the name
of my GOD in vain.
