Today’s headlines, on the DRUDGE report, stated that Iran now has enough nuclear material to make a bomb. Isn’t that comforting to know? Of course that’s still a long way from actually making a nuclear device that can be detonated, let’s say over Tel Aviv, but still it’s a step in the right direction. Iran should be proud that they have defied the U.N and everybody else and are only a small step away from joining, a select group of nations, that have the ability to kill hundreds of thousands of people with just one bomb. Yes, it’s quite an accomplishment. God help us! What most people, in the west do not understand is that Iran is primarily made up of Shiite Muslims. They have a peculiar theology, in the that they hold a belief in a figure, who is called the Imam Madhi. This enigmatic figure will return at a time when there is total Chaos. He will return with Jesus and take him to Jerusalem and show him how to pray. Seriously, I’m not making this stuff up. Mahmoud I’m-in-a Jihad has stated publicly that he is willing to sacrifice up to one third of his own people to bring about the advent of the Mahdi.
So let’s walk through it. Iran has stated over and over again that Israel should be wiped off the map. As I’ve said before, there’s not much room for detante’ in statement like that. It’s hard to sit down with a group of people, and have a chat, who have declared that they are looking forward to wiping you off the face of the earth. What’s more is that I’m-in -a-jihad, has stated, in a variety of ways, his intentions toward Israel.
Recently I ran a story about the Holocaust. I did so because many of my daughters peers, have no idea of the horrors that mankind is capable of. Make no mistake about it, with a group of people who believe that they must somehow bring about a time of chaos, in order to have the Mahdi manifest, is a very serious situation.
Several months ago Israel conducted military exercises, in what some say was a mock air strike on Iran. We also know that Syria has surrounded Lebanon with over 10,000 troops and tanks and as of this writing the situation has not changed. We also know that Russian military and nuclear advisers have met with and have ongoing relationships with both Iran and Syria and now Libya. What I find so fascinating is that these are some of the nations that are mentioned in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy. Will Israel sit back and do nothing for fear of starting a regional war? Will Iran make the first move, with a confederacy of nations, against Israel? There’s lots of jockeying for position and it’s hard to predict what will actually transpire. One thing is for certain. With Iran now a step away from the completion of a nuclear bomb, the balance of power, in the Middle East has begun to shift. We will continue to watch and see what develops. Hopefully this will not be a prelude to the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 38 war…
