The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Aerospace Division says that his country will destroy US military bases across the Middle East and target Israel within minutes of being attacked by any foreign military forces.
Revolutionary Guard commanders have also threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz through which more than a third of the world's sea-born oil trade passes out of the Gulf which could cause a major global problem.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Iranian revolutionary guard commander who threatened all US-Middle East military bases and the Jewish state of Israel with a ballistic missile attack is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
During a recent military war games drill in Iran, the Islamic republic test fired ballistic missiles at mock targets representing the US military bases in the Middle East and they threatened America saying within minutes of an attack on Iran these US bases would come under heavy attack. Iran also said that their ballistic missiles had a range of 1300 miles and could target any site in Israel.
This Iranian threat is, as I said, helping to set the stage for an end of times scenario that was foretold in Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote in chapter 38 of his prophecy that Iran, mentioned as Persia in verse 5, would be one of the major players as an alignment of nations attack the Jewish state in the last days. Iran will be joined by a coalition of Arab and Islamic states that are listed in Daniel 11:40-45 and Psalm 83. These prophecies will be fulfilled soon after there is a peace, howbeit a pseudo peace, in the Middle East that allows the Jewish people in Israel to seem to be dwelling safely in their land, Ezekiel 38:8-11. One other very interesting thought is that the first three nations to move against Israel in this time will be Syria, Egypt, and Libya, Daniel 11:40-43.
The situation in the Middle East today and this threat from Iran does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
