What do Iranian missile strikes, a solar eclipse and two earthquake have in common? I’m not sure, but it has my attention.
The Iranian regime’s official news agency, Fars News, reported on the missile attacks aimed at Americans stationed on Iraqi bases calling it “hard revenge” for Soleimani’s death. The Gateway Pundit reported that Iranians were heard shouting, “Allahu Akbar!” as the missiles were fired off.
Earlier this week top Iranian lawmaker Mojtaba Zolnour warned the United States that if they are attacked, Israel will be annihilated in half an hour. And there you have it—Iran’s Great Satan and Little Satan, and just one of the many reasons the United States has remained an ally to Israel.
And while Iran believes the threat of destroying Israel will be enough to stop the United States from engaging in an all out war, it might want to rethink that plan.
There is an ancient Elam—or present-day Iran—prophecy by the biblical prophet Jeremiah that has yet to be fulfilled that depicts a nation utterly and totally destroyed. According to Jeremiah 49:34–39:
The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, 35 “Thus says the Lord of hosts:
‘Behold, I will break the [a]bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
36 Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.
38 I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord.
39 ‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days:
I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord.”
Obviously, this prophecy has yet to be fulfilled. Notice that the prophecy indicates that Iran will be struck at the foremost place of its might, which today could mean an annihilation of its nuclear program.
Iran was behind a string of recent attacks across the Persian Gulf region and has exceeded its limits set on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium under the nuclear deal.
According to The Times of Israel, “The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as making the uranium announcement. IRNA reported that Zarif, answering a reporter’s question whether Iran had broken the limit, said: ‘Yes’.”
One of Iran’s most strategic and vulnerable nuclear targets is its Bushehr nuclear reactor, which is located in the heart of ancient Elam.
In a shock and awe plan between the United States and Israel, Iran could be so severely damaged, including its nuclear power plant, that its people would have to flee, creating a great humanitarian crisis.
Interestingly, a 5.1 magnitude earthquake struck southwestern Iran less than two weeks ago on December 27, 2019. The earthquake hit in a region that houses the country’s first nuclear power plant.
Hours after Iran launched several missiles to American-occupied bases in Iraq, another 4.9 earthquake rocked Iran, with an epicenter just outside of Borazjan. This happens to be just about 30 miles from the Bushehr nuclear power plant.
The Sun reported today on images that appeared to show giant devil horns rising over the Persian Gulf during a solar eclipse, treating us to a creepy preview over an evil region.
It was widely reported on in 2018 that Muslims in Iran were seeing many visions and having dreams of Christ. Iran has the highest percentage (of the population) growth rate of Christianity in the entire world. More Iranians have come to Christ in the last 17 years than in the previous 1,400 years combined.
If Christians are wondering whether God still speaks, they may want to turn their minds to what is happening in the Middle East and consider what these accompanying signs may mean. Surely, two earthquakes and a solar eclipse within a two-week period has my attention.
