Chapter 1 - Letter from a Friend

What happened to Babylon?

Many years after the prophecy was written Babylon was attacked
and the great walls were broken in pieces.

  • The city was destroyed by fire.
  • The city is still in ruins and has never been rebuilt.
  • Not one person lives in Babylon. Wild birds and beasts
    occupy the ruins.

More than 100 years before Cyrus was born, what did the
Lord say he would do?

'This is what the Lord says to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right
hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him; to open doors
before him so that gates will not be shut: "I will go before you and
will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut
through bars of iron."'
Isaiah 45:1,2

'Who says to the watery deep, "Be dry, and I will dry up your streams."'
Isaiah 44:27
