I will pay for the following article The Greatest Things to Remember about Seeking Biblical Justice. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Worldwide efforts are taken to rebuild Iraqi society. However, from a biblical view, this situation is a prophetically significant one as it fulfills the end-time prophecy about the rise of Antichrist and war. Bringing justice and reconciliation to the land is already happening and so a theological analysis of it could provide more insights into the issues surrounding the country’s state of affairs. The discussion provides a biblical analysis of what the Bible says about justice, truth, and reconciliation in Iraq. A clear interpretation of the situation is provided by relating it with the book of John, chapter 16.
Iraq is one of the most mentioned nations in the Bible, next to Israel. Interestingly, it was the home of the Babylonian Empire, the Assyrian Empire, and later day Mesopotamia. Iraqi people were the descendants of native people who lived in the region since time immemorial, including the Babylonians, Syrians, Arcadians, and the Sumerian people.
According to the Bible prophecies, God would bring ‘foreigners’ from every side to rise against Babylon, which is probably modern Iraq. In addition, there has been increasing evidence regarding the biblical prophecy of Antichrist being fulfilled in Iraq and nearby territories. This is because as per the Bible, the Antichrist would emerge from the lands between Assyria and Babylon, which is now a part of Iraq. The verses say that “when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin because they do not believe in Me. of righteousness,” (John 16:8-10). So, the judgment that God delivers for Iraq is that “He” would remove any egotistical leader of nations from his throne and bring peace to “His” people through reconciliation.
Historically, the then Iraq was ruled by the Turkish-speaking Ottoman Empire for centuries until it was taken over by Great Britain. After the independent ‘Iraq’ was created by the British, the country underwent various political changes over the years, until the authoritative government of Saddam Hussein took over. He was also removed by the U.S. led coalition, as his ruthless government suppressed many sections of the Iraqi people.
