New moves by Iran.

Comment on this article

Last month, Iran’s Foreign Minister was dismissed and replaced by the head of its nuclear operations. At the same time, Iranian armed forces concluded a covert “war games” exercise on the Iraqi border. Such demonstrations of force receive broad press coverage and are not kept secret. Analysts suggest these moves are aimed at sending a message to Washington that Iran’s nuclear ambitions will not be deterred.

One of the tasks of the new Foreign Minister will be to woo Arab states that are traditional U.S. allies. The previous Foreign Minister was fired while he was in Africa working on trade agreements to supply Iran with uranium (Debka.com, December 13, 2010).

Today, the Middle East is a powder keg waiting to explode. While Iran desires to lead the region, its aggressive actions worry and threaten its neighbors.

Bible prophecies indicate that events in the Middle East will escalate as the end of age approaches. A “king” or primary leader—the “king of the South”—will appear in this region who will gather Moslem nations together and eventually challenge the “king of the North”—a European power referred to as the “beast” (see Daniel 11).

The actions we are witnessing in the Middle East will most certainly play into biblical prophesies for the region. For more information about end-time prophecies, see our booklet The Middle East in Prophecy.
