Iranian President Ahmadinejad has challenged the United States to accept the fact that his country has a major role in the world and he told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly that the future belongs to Iran and the world will realize this fact sooner than later. Ahmadinejad said that anti-nuclear sanctions against his government would have no effect and the Iranian president said that his country is only seeking peace and a nuclear free world.
Ahmadinejad said that Iran considers itself to be a human force and a cultural power - a friend to all other nations and it is clear that the future does belong to Iran whose enemies will be fruitless.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The statement by Iranian President Ahmadinejad that the future belongs to Iran is only half correct - that is according to Bible prophecy.
In a very controversial visit to the United Nations in New York City, Iranian President Ahmadinejad has been outspoken about a number of issues including the statement that the future belongs to Iran. President Ahmadinejad had called for a new world order in the near future, said that his country was not developing a nuclear weapon of mass destruction, and that if his country was under attack, there would be a war without boundaries. Many world leaders have questioned the wisdom of allowing the Iranian president to address the United Nations General Assembly.
As to the future belonging to Iran, that statement is only half correct. Iran will be a major player in the coalition of nations that will try to destroy Israel in the last days. That is found in Ezekiel 38:5 where Iran is referred to as Persia. This attempt to destroy Israel will actually lead to Iran's total destruction (Ezekiel 39:2). This will happen early on in the seven year tribulation period when Israel is at rest in their land (Ezekiel 38:8,11). After these events, the future belongs to the Jewish people who will welcome their Messiah, Jesus Christ, and His kingdom to be set up in Jerusalem (Zechariah 14, Isaiah 63, and Revelation 20:4-6).
Sorry President Ahmadinejad, the future actually belongs to the Jews. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
