A Historic Nuclear Deal With Iran Has Been Reached!!! Now What? - A.V. Rauf - http://bibleprophecyfortoday.com/2015/07/16/a-historic-nuclear-deal-with-iran-has-been-reached-now-what/
In his speech yesterday, the president announced that the world was entering a time of peace and stability as a result of this nuclear deal. “Today after two years of negotiation the United States together with the international community has achieved something that decades of animosity has not: a comprehensive long-term deal with Iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” said the president.
As for Iran, in reference to the terms of this deal, Iran can continue enriching uranium. They don’t have to dismantle any of their nuclear facilities. Furthermore, they don’t have to shut down their ballistic missile factories or dismantle any of their ballistic missiles.
The one country that did not agree with this was……..Israel. According to Benjamin Netanyahu this landmark Iran nuclear deal poses a threat to both Israel and the United States,
“We think this is not only a threat to us. We think this is a threat to you as well,” Netanyahu said, a day after Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., reached the historic agreement. “Iran has killed more Americans than anyone other than al Qaeda.”
“They’re going to get hundreds of billions of dollars to fuel their terror and military machine,” he added. “This cash bonanza will fuel Iran’s terrorism worldwide, its aggression in the region and its efforts to destroy Israel, which are ongoing.”
“Iran is different. It’s a zealot country,” he said. “It’s killed a lot of Americans. It’s killing everybody in sight in the Middle East.” Let us not forgot that Iran also is made up of Shi’ite Muslims who are staunch supporters of the Mahdi. The leadership fully believes that the main purpose of his government is to promote the arrival of the “mahdi”, and for this purpose all military and economical resources will be given. In addition, the way to bring “the mahdi” (the Shiite “messiah” who is supposedly, according to their beliefs, going to impose the region of Islam on the whole world) is by creating a situation of chaos with local and international destruction.
Netanyahu contends Iran — long suspected of harboring enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon — cannot be trusted with any sort of nuclear program. Notice Netanyahu stated that Iran has intentions to ultimately destroy Israel. Even the Arabs are concerned. “When Arabs and Israelis agree, it’s worth paying attention,” Netanyahu said.For more insight I strongly recommend you see thes previous posts:
Thee former head of Israeli military intelligence, Amos Yadlin noted in assessing the situation: “The deal and the lifting of sanctions on Tehran will pour more than $100 billion into Iran,”. “Even a fraction of that sum will triple the budgets of terrorists such as Assad, Hizbullah and Hamas.”
Again, it is paramount to note that Iran, referred to as “Persia,” in the Bible may very well be the final kingdom that troubles Israel prior to the return of the Messiah.
In light of the current events involving Iran and their quest for nuclear weapons, a piece of rabbinic literature [written 2000 years ago] known as the Yalkut Shimoni touches on many future scenarios both for the nation of Israel and for the world. In its section on the biblical Book of Isaiah and the prophecies contained therein, a rabbi cited by the Yalkut Shimoni states:
MEDRISH “YALKUT SHIMONI”:
(Yeshiya 60“That the year the Messiah will arrive when all the nations of the world will antagonize each other and threaten with war. The king of Persia (Iran) antagonizes the King of Arabia (Saudi Arabia) with war. The King of Arabia goes to Edom (The Western Countries, headed by USA) for advice. Then the King of Persia destroys the world (and since that cannot be done with conventional weapons it must mean nuclear which can destroy most of the world). And all the nations of the world begin to panic and are afraid, and Israel too is afraid as to how to defend from this. G-d then says to them “Do not fear for everything that I have done is for your benefit, to destroy the evil kingdom of Edom and eradicate evil from this world so that the Messiah can come, your time of redemption is now.”
It has been reported that Jewish sages have assessed that soon there will be a nuclear war outside of Israel and in Eretz Yisroel will be the “selection” that was foretold in the prophesy of Zechariah and Isaiah by an earthquake, terrifying in its power, unlike anything known in the past.
Zechariah 13:7-8—And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.
Isaiah 6:9-13-–And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
In view of all this, it is clear that the words of this Medrish: “and the King of Persia returns and destroys the whole world” are very realistic and in light of ongoing world events, it is quite possible that this will actually happen in the near future.
There is also another striking event related to this in the words of the Torah Sages of 2000 years ago (in Yalkut Shimoni Shs”h 4:988) “Rabbi Barchiya said: in three hours in the future HaKadosh Baruch Hu will punish Esav and his men.” Thus our Torah Scholars (z”l) tell us here that the destruction of the evil Kingdom of Edom will be accomplished “in three hours”.
It is very possible that a nuclear war, as mentioned above, could last only 3 hours and in that time, the evil Kingdom of Edom could be destroyed . It is known from Jewish sages z”l [Malbim, Abarbanel etc.] that today Esav is America, the countries of Europe and the West.
I have said this before and I am saying it again:
It bears mentioning that in no other religious literature in the world do we find any specific predictive prophecies like we find in the Scriptures. In the Bible there are well over two thousand prophecies, most of which have already been fulfilled.
Though the Bible has been attacked, the one place where God rests His inspiration is that the things He foretells come infallibly to pass: 100% accuracy!!!
I again plea with you to study the Scriptures and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior while there still remains time and before it runs out.
