The Israeli Defense Force is preparing to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat

The chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Force has prepared a report that declares, for the first time in years, that the state of Israel is under and existential threat from Iran, which the defense establishment says is a threat to the very existence of the Jewish state. The threat consists of information on Tehran's nearly obtained nuclear capability, its existing ballistics aptitude, and proven embassary fighting in the form of funding for Hamas, Hezbullah, and other terrorist organizations.

The Israeli Defense Force chief of staff, General Gabi Ashkenazi, defines the Iranian peril as the number one threat that the Israeli Defense Force is now preparing for in this next year and the military leader says that this is the case because of the methods employed by other governments including the sanctions and negotiations which have failed and Israel must to that which is necessary to defend its very existence.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The evaluation by the Israeli Defense Force that Iran is the number one threat to the Jewish state is a page out of Bible prophecy.

For a number of years the world has watched as the Iranians have been developing a nuclear weapon of mass destruction and have only been willing to talk about this threat and put in place sanctions that have completely failed. Now, the Obama Administration wants to have a sit down conversation with the leaders of Iran and try to negiotiate this threat away. Meanwhile, the chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Force and the Israeli military establishment are preparing a way to defend and deal with the Iranian threat which is the number one threat to the very existence to the Jewish state.

As I mentioned, this scenario is a page out of Bible prophecy for the last days. 2500 years ago, the ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel and also the Psalmist wrote about the Iranian threat. Ezekiel wrote, in Ezekiel 38:5, that the Persians would be one of the alignment of nations that will rise up to destroy the Jewish state in the last days. By the way, Persia is modern-day Iran. Psalm 83 states that the leader of this alignment of nations will call for the total destruction of Israel and that her name be forgotten for ever.

Iran, Israel's number one threat, will indeed play their end time role as Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
