Revelation13.net: Saddam Hussein, the former evil dictator of a modern-day Babylon, and the Wars in Iraq
-- A Bible prophecy and New Age analysis
We will discuss here the issue of Iraq by using Biblical prophecy to understand the war in Iraq. On December 13 2003 Saddam Hussein of Iraq was captured by the U.S. Army; Saddam was found hiding underground in a hole in the ground in Iraq.
This brings to mind Revelation 13 where the 2nd beast comes out of the earth, like Saddam coming out of his hole in the ground. Also, Saddam was found near a sheep pen, bringing to mind also Revelation 13 where the second beast has "two horns like a lamb", Revelation 13:11 King James version:
"13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
Also, the sheep pen near where he was found was shaped like the Greek letter Omega, bringing to mind the "Alpha and Omega" quote in Revelation concerning Christ: "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last". And Saddam was captured when he was exactly 66.6 years old, 666 being the number of the beast in Revelation 13.
There had been a great danger that Saddam
tinkering with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons could come up with some
method of mass destruction, such as a doomsday virus; it was very important for the
safety of the world that Saddam be removed from his position of power. Remember
the 700 oil well fires Saddam set on fire during the first Iraq war? Remember Saddam
firing off missles at
Israel during the first Iraq war? Saddam's crimes against
humanity include using nerve gas against the people of Iraq. There was a major concern that Saddam could have been working on a Smallpox biological weapon, since when the weapons inspections were done previously, one piece of equipment was noticed that was labeled "Smallpox" in Arabic. He could have been working on biological weapons to unleash on the West, or even give them to Osama. Suggested reading: the very scary book "The Demon in the Freezer", by Richard Preston, published in 2002 by Random House. "The Demon in the Freezer" discusses viruses and biological weapons including Smallpox, and discusses what is known of Saddam's research into Smallpox and other biological weapons. Previous arms inspections in Iraq had found definite evidence that Saddam was developing Smallpox and similar viruses for weapons use. "The Demon in the Freezer" discusses how when the U.N biological weapons inspection team in Iraq in 1995 talked to Dr. Hazem Ali, Iraq's top virus expert, who had a Ph.D. in virology from England, and when they asked him what he was doing in his Level 3 Biolab in Iraq, he replied that he was trying to turn Camelpox virus into a bio-weapon, Camelpox being a close relative of Smallpox that infects Camels. If that was what he was doing in his lab, its an odd area of research. Although maybe he was actually working with Smallpox. The scariest possibility mentioned in "The Demon in the Freezer" is that Smallpox could be changed by genetic engineering into a form that vaccines no longer work on, that could quickly wipe out mankind. A similar example in the book concerns Mousepox virus, that infects mice, being modified by an Australian group of scientists into an unstoppable mouse-killer virus that vaccines would not stop. So the same thing might be done to Smallpox, modifying it to make it more lethal, and so that vaccines would not stop it.
Saddam might have developed a vaccine for this super-Smallpox, and vaccinate himself, his friends, and his army against this virus, and then turn this doomsday virus loose on the world. Osama bin Laden would do the same thing.
The interesting thing about Iraq is how it fits into the pattern of Biblical prophecy,
especially the prophecies of the book of Revelation and the Book of
In the Book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, had his dreams
of future events interpreted by the prophet Daniel. Today Iraq is located
where Babylon was, and I have read that Saddam (in his insanity) believed
he was Nebuchadnezzar returned, and therefore he thought he was destined to
rule over a new resurrected empire of Babylon. That is why he had been
rebuilding the ancient city of Babylon, so he could sit on the throne there
like a reincarnated Nebuchadnezzar. (Note also that in the Book of
Daniel 4:33 Nebuchadnezzar becomes insane, and "did eat grass as oxen".)
This attempt to create a new Babylonian Empire explains Saddam's
unfortunate attempt to expand Iraq.
Daniel's prophecies help explain the Book of Revelation's prophecies of
a future empire to come, in Revelation 13. In chapter 7 of the Book of Daniel,
Daniel saw a vision of 4 beasts rising out of the sea, representing
future empires to come. The first beast was like a lion, and had
a man's heart. The second beast was a bear with three ribs in its mouth.
The third beast was a leopard with wings and 4 heads. The fourth beast
had iron teeth and 10 horns, one of which was a man that spoke great things.
These are believed the represent the Babylonian empire (the lion),
Medo-Persian empire (the bear), and Greek empire of Alexander (the
leopard-- Alexander had the speed of a leopard during military conquest),
and the Roman empire (with iron teeth). It is also believed that the final empire may be talking about the Antichrist -- the man who speaks great things.
Note that these beasts are combined into the 10-horned beast of Revelation
13, which has the mouth of a lion, feet of a bear, the speed of a leopard, and
10 horns representing a confederation of 10 states. This
could be Russia and the Commonwealth
of Independent States, evolving into this angry beast, or the SCO alliance of Russia, China, and 4 Central Asian nations. Since Revelation
13 describes the empire of the Antichrist as having the mouth of a lion
and the feet of a bear, this could mean that the lion had been Iraq under Saddam Hussein (where the
lion in Daniel's vision was Babylon, which is now Iraq) and the bear is Russia.
This may relate to the past alliance
between Russia and Iraq under Saddam, and also a Russian alliance with
Red China , since the beast gets its power from
Now I think the lion-bear-dragon is:
lion: Hong Kong, now part of China
Note that the lion shown above is on the
Ishtar Gate, from the ancient city of Babylon in Iraq.
And in Revelation 16, the River Euphrates in Iraq is dried up so
that the army of the King of the East (China?) can cross it to the
Battle of Armageddon. It is interesting that a severe drought was
drying up the River Euphrates in 1999, this was the worst drought in
Iraq in this century, and also Turkey is building dams upstream
which could dry up this river, so this is another sign that
Armageddon is approaching.
In Revelation 18:2, King James version of the Bible,
"Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the
habitation of devils" (devils -- Saddam and his government of Iraq).
Concerning Saddam launching missles against the state of Israel in
the Gulf war, this can be explained by Nebuchadnezzar being
the conquerer of Jerusalem in chapter 1 of the Book of Daniel.
So apparently Saddam had dreamed of resurrecting a Babylonian empire
that includes Israel in his conquered territories. Also, on the page on the War against Terrorism I discuss how Osama bin Laden appears to be a demon from Hell in Revelation 9:11, the unholy angel of the bottomless pit, also called "The Destroyer".
