Israeli Intelligence says Iran could have a Nuclear WMD by 2009

Iran has achieved a landmark with 3,000 centrifuges fully working in its Uranium enrichment program according to Iranian President Ahmadinejad. This led the Israeli Intelligence Community to say that Iran could have a Nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) by 2009 instead of 2010 or 2011 as previously thought.

The Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, Tzachi Hanegbi, says that with this report from the Intelligence Community, the new timeline makes 2008 the critical year to deal once and for all with the Iranian nuclear program.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The announcement that Iran is several years closer than thought in the development of a Nuclear WMD is a precursor to the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

The best guessed scenario for Iran to develop a Nuclear WMD had been that they would be ready to become a nuclear-powered state in 2010 or possibly 2011. Now, with this latest intelligence from the area of Iran and with the materials gathered from the Syrian nuclear facility, Israeli Intel says that Iran could have a Nuclear WMD by 2009. This information is key to stopping Iran as well as Syria from acquiring a Nuclear WMD for their military arsenals.

The ancient Jewish prophets prewrote this scenario for the Last Days. Daniel and Ezekiel, contemporary prophets, both wrote of the Last Days when nations would move to destroy the Jewish state of Israel. Daniel, in Daniel 11:40-43, revealed that Syria would be the first state to make a move against Israel. Ezekiel in chapter 38:5, states that Persia, modern-day Iran, would also play a key role in the coalition of nations to come against Israel.

This latest intelligence information indicates that Bible prophecy may very well be close to fulfillment.
