US Defense Secretary Robert Gates believes that Iran's nuclear program is the greatest current threat to global security because there does not seem to be any good options where the rest of the world can see a scenario that would keep the threat from becoming a reality. Gates said that the international community's inability to affect Iran's apparent determination to seek a nuclear weapon of mass destruction sets up the possibility of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East as very real.
Mr. Gates said that if something is done to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon of mass destruction the consequences of that are completely unpredictable and, frankly, very bad.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The statement from the United States Defense Secretary Robert Gates that Iran is the greatest threat to global security is a page out of Bible prophecy for the end times.
A recent statement by the Secretary of Defense in the United States, Robert Gates, that a nuclear powered Iran is the greatest threat to global security is in line with Israeli intelligence which has for years said that Israel's biggest threat is indeed Iran. This report is so close to the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy and all the players that are listed in the pages of God's word are on the stage ready to begin the final drama.
For example, Iran is the Persia that is spoken of in Ezekiel 38:5. Iran and Syria already have a partnership in the nuclear arms business and Syria is the King of the North mentioned in Daniel 11:40-42. Hezbullah is an arm of the Revolutionary Guard in Iran and they are now located in southern Lebanon which is mentioned as Tyre in Psalm 83:7. Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, and many other of the Minor Prophets all call for a coalition of nations to attack the Jewish state of Israel in the last days.
As Iran continues to develop a nuclear weapon of mass destruction and at the same time declare that Israel must be wiped off the face of the Earth, the stage is indeed set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
