Iran is now a nuclear power

Iranian President Ahmadinejad has declared that Iran is now a nuclear power and he claimed that Iran had reached that zenith with access to the nuclear fuel cycle because of the hard work of the Iranian people, their scientists, and authorities.

The announcement of Iran as a nuclear power is bound to significantly escalate tensions between the West and Iran and marks a dramatic stage in the Islamic Republic's nuclear campaign. In recent days, the US military has begun to build up forces around the Persian Gulf in what is seen as a warning to Iran.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The announcement by Iranian President Ahmadinejad that they are now a nuclear power is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days in the Middle East region.

For a number of years, the Iranians have been developing their nuclear program with the goal of producing a Nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction. This with the transfer of nuclear technology and technicians from Russia to Iran. Now, comes the announcement that Iran is a nuclear power; this declaration actually coming prior to what had been predicted by European, US, and Israeli intelligence. What has been feared by Israel, a nuclear-powered Iran, is now a reality, a reality that causes concern not only to Israel but to the European Union, the US and even the Arab states of the Middle East as well.

Anyone who would have read through the pages of Bible prophecy would have known that this would come about sooner rather than later. The ancient Jewish prophets Ezekiel and Jeremiah and even the Psalmist revealed in prewritten history that Iran, biblical Persia, would be a major power in the world at the time of the end, that's Ezekiel 38:5, Jeremiah 49:34-39, and Psalm 83.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad with a nuclear arsenal positions Iran to play the role called for by Bible prophecy.
