Bible places, Countries and Where They are today.

As we watch the news today so many people have a hard time realizing what is actually going on. As most people who read the Bible study many still don't realize the areas and what it means in today's standards.

I hope that somehow as you watch and see the events today, we may start to realize the Prophecies spoken of from thousands of year ago and today in fact coming true.

Here is a list of the Countries from yesterday to today. Hope this helps out some.
