At a recent conference of Jewish leaders from around the world held in Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told those attendees that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not terminated its pursuit of a nuclear weapon of mass destruction and that the free world must do whatever it can to prevent a nuclear Iran. Olmert told the Jewish leaders that Iran cannot become nuclear - Israel cannot afford that to happen - and that the free world must not accept a nuclear Iran.
Prime Minister Olmert did not give specific warnings about a possible Israeli action against Iran, but he did say that together the world can meet the challenge to stop Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon of mass destruction.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The call by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for the world to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power comes even as the rumors increase of an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran, a scenario that could well lead to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
There has been much speculation over the last several months that after the United States presidential elections, Israel might mount a preemptive strike against Iran's nuclear program. These rumors of such a strike have been fueled recently by the public remarks of many leaders in Israel. Prime Minister Olmert's most recent warning to the world that Iran must be stopped from developing a nuclear weapon of mass destruction only enforces what many believe will happen sooner rather than later.
Even the talk of a military action by Israel on Iran fits the scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for these two nations. Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 mention Iran as an enemy of the Jewish state of Israel. Psalm 83:4 sounds exactly like what Iranian president Ahmadinejad called for - Israel to be destroyed and her name forgotten forever.
The warning from Israeli Prime Minister Olmert to the world to prevent a nuclear Iran is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
