JD: The top United States Commander says that Iran is the greatest global threat there is, boy that’s pretty strong.
KT: It is, this is US Central Command Commander General Joseph Votel and he was testifying in Congress and he went down Iran’s threat around the world but specifically in the Middle East. He said there’s been no reduction in Iran’s bad behavior since the nuclear accord and he warned about the activities of the Iran Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp. the IRGC around the world and their efforts to subvert US allies. So this was a significant statement you’re right.
JD: Well at the same time Iran is calling on the United States to stop their harassment I guess it’s because of some of the naval activities going on in the Persian Gulf.
KT: Well I think they’re also worried about this stepping up of the rhetoric against the Iranian Regime that statement came after Votel’s testimony. The Iranian’s were listening and here you have the defense minister in Iran clearly referring to Votel and reiterating a long standing Iranian demand. I mean this goes back 30 years that the United States leave the Persian Gulf that we no longer patrol with the United States Navy. But it shows the Iranian’s are worried, they’re nervous they believe they’re going to face a more aggressive United States that will enforce freedom of navigation around the world and will check Iran’s expansionist ambitions.
JD: Ken Timmerman in Washington reporting on the issue that Iran is the greatest global threat today.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
For many years Israel has said that Iran is their number one threat. Prime Minister Netanyahu even addressed the joint houses of the United States Congress in an effort to stop the Iranian nuclear deal. He failed and the United States moved to allow Iran to continue its research on developing a nuclear weapon of mass destruction.
Many Arab countries in the Middle East are very much concerned, that would include Saudi Arabia. In fact, the Saudi’s are seeking to become a nuclear powered nation today to be able to combat the Iranian threat. The ancient Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel warned of Iran as a threat they did this some 2,500 years ago; that would be Ezekiel 38:5 and Daniel 11:43 & 44. Iran referred to as Persia in the Ezekiel account will help lead an alignment of nations that will go against the Jewish state of Israel in the last days. That stage is set, prophecy will be fulfilled.
