I just wanted everyone to see it before I went down.

But as it was they were taken by surprise. The Babylonians themselves say that owing to the great size of the city the outskirts were captured without the people in the centre knowing anything about it; there was a festival going on, and they continued to dance and enjoy themselves, until they learned the news the hard way.
It certainly shows how Jehovah can put the thought into someone's head to carry out his will, doesn't it? Like He will do soon with the UN.

Chris, thank you! That is so faith building to see secular history confirming what the Bible has to say.
That is an excellent point you make about the UN. Jehovah can manuever matters to bring a seemingly impervious enemy to their knees!!
Before you hit that button, were you kind to your brothers and sisters?? Are your words upbuilding?? Php 1:3

I heard that the Watchtower Society had joined the United Nations about 10 years ago as a NGO (Non Governmental Organization).
I could not understand why they would do this.
I went to the UN website to confirm this last November and sure enough the Watchtower Society was on their list.
They have just been removed from the list so I Guess everything is OK now.
We just have to wait on Jehovah.
