Israel will burn in the fire it started in the Gaza Strip - Iran

A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry in Teheran, says that Israel will burn in the flame of fire that it started when the Israeli Defense Force entered the Gaza Strip to rescue the kidnapped IDF soldier and after Israel detained a number of Hamas officials and parliamentarians.

The Iranian official said that the moves of the "Zionist regime" are against any international criteria, and they came about when Israel was enraged when they saw the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority take charge of the affairs of the Palestinian people. The spokesman said that Israel had taken insane measures against the Palestinians after seeing their continuing resistance against the Jewish state.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman's statement that Israel would burn in the flame of fire that it started in the Gaza Strip is similar to Bible prophecy, but not exactly correct.

The rhetoric out of Iran continues to go after the Jews and the state of Israel with this latest statement from their Foreign Ministry. The statement by the Iranian official has some aspects of Bible prophecy in its content, but the players will be reversed in the actions.

The ancient Jewish prophet Obadiah wrote that at the time of return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, the Jewish people will be a flame of fire and the Palestinians will be the kindling or stumble. Obadiah 18 says the Palestinians will burned up and completely consumed by the flame. That same verse says that none of them will be left. Jeremiah 49:18 says the Palestinians will be as Sodom and Gomorrah, as if they have never been.

These descendants of Esau, the Palestinians, will indeed be the victims of the fire - not the Jewish people, as the Iranian official has declared. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
