The art of compromise has brought a political stalemate to an end in Iraq

After four ardulous months of political stalemate, Iraqi leaders have finally agreed on a new Prime Minister(PM) to lead the government in the rebuilding of this war-torn Middle Eastern nation.

Iraq now has a new PM designate, Jawad Miliki, a close associate of the incumbent PM Al Jaafari who was seen as a weak leader and inept in battling the bloody insurgency.

With a new PM designate in place in Iraq, this Middle Eastern war-torn nation can continue to rebuild and become the Middle East power that is foretold in Bible prophecy. During the four months since the historic Iraqi elections that has enabled Iraq to setup a permanent parliament, there has been a roadblock to forming the new government and that now has been removed.

The two minorities in the body politic of the Iraqi people, the Sunnis and the Kurds, had refused to accept the Shiite endorsed candidate for PM, Al Jaafari, a man they considered too weak to lead the nation and its rebuilding into the future. With this recent compromise, the way is clear for the PM designate, Jawad Miliki, to form the government of Iraq and be about rebuilding his nation. This achievement by the Iraqi politicals is inline with what must happen in Iraq in order for this nation to play the role that Bible prophecy calls for it to play in the Last Days.

John, writer of the prophetic book of Revelation in the New Testament, reveals that Iraq, in the Scripture referred to as Babylon, that this nation will be the superpower of the future headquarters for the one-world, economic, political, governmental system, that's found in Revelation 18. The one-world political leader of these times will be the Antichrist headquartered in Babylon, that's Revelation 13, 17. By the way, this superpower will be brought down in the End, just before Jesus Christ returns to the earth, that's Revelation 16:17 and following.

These recent political activities in Iraq are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
