Iran is now publicly threatening Israel, saying the “Zionist regime” will not exist in 25 years:
INDEPENDENT – Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, called on Muslims to “resist and fight” to gain control of Jerusalem, which is claimed as a capital by both Israelis and Palestinians.
“Any other solution is fruitless and infertile,” he wrote on Twitter, adding that Iran considers Palestinians a “priority of the Muslim world”.
Repeating comments made in 2015, he wrote: “As I‘ve said before, if Muslims & Palestinians unite & all fight, the Zionist regime will not be in existence in 25 years.”
It’s threats like these that remind us of just how contemptible it was for Obama to sign the nuke deal with Iran that led this Israel-hating terrorist nation to getting billions in cash! Ugh!
Netanyahu quickly responded to Khamenei, issuing his own threat to Iran:
Benjamin Netanyahu has warned Israel is a “tiger, not a rabbit” after Iran’s Supreme Leader claimed the country would be destroyed within 25 years.
The Israeli Prime Minister was asked if he would like to pass on a message to Tehran during a landmark visit to Kazakhstan.
“Don’t threaten us, we are not a rabbit, we are a tiger,” he said, according to the Jerusalem Post. “If you threaten us you endanger yourself.”
You may not feel this back and forth is very significant, but when you put this new threat from Khamenei together with what Turkey’s Sultan Erdogan said just the other day, it’s really very ominous:
“It is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem. Safeguarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque should not be left to children armed with nothing but stones”
Why is this ominous? Well outside of the fact that they are both talking about Muslims taking over Jerusalem, something we know is close to Erdogan’s heart, this is exactly what scripture predicts will happen in Ezekiel 38:
Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia,[b] and Libya[c] are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.
‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it? Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?
This will lead to Armageddon, as we’ve explained before, and this invasion will be led by Turkey and Iran, the same people threatening Israel now!
Remember, these threats aren’t being said willy nilly. Erdogan, as we’ve discussed extensively here, is reviving the 4th kingdom of Daniel 2 (Ottoman Empire) before our eyes. He calls it the ‘New Turkey’ and it is supposed to be completed in 2023, just 7 years from now.
Scripture points out Iran and Turkey will lead this invasion of Jerusalem with a large Muslim army and it will only be after 3 1/2 years of this invasion that Christ will come back to save Israel from this scourge. That will be Armageddon, as written about in Zechariah 14.
We are getting close to this monumental Bible prophecy being revealed. How close? I’m not sure exactly but I’m guessing soon, maybe within the next couple of decades! All of this is happening very quickly!
