Time seems to be fleeting these days; literally. The world and the physical makeup of the earth are changing at breakneck speeds. We are living in perilous times, and the confusion and deception grows almost exponentially by the day.
The Apostle Paul said we would be able to “see the day approaching”, and certainly in the general sense we can, as the world descends into uncertainty. But perhaps there is also a more direct meaning to his prophetic utterance. Perhaps a certain biblical prophetical event will take place, a warning if you will, and without exception the believers on the earth will “see the day approaching”. That is to say, the day of the Rapture.
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:23-25
In Jeremiah there is the Prophecy against Elam. The Lord is angered by what is taking place in Iran/Persia and says he will break Elam, the chief of their might. Elam is home of the Bushehr Nuclear plant and there have been unconfirmed rumors of hidden nuclear weapons beneath the facility. Certainly that would be “the chief of their might” if the rumors are true.
4 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,
35 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.
37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: Jeremiah 49:34-37
The ongoing nuclear talks have stalled and resumed, but all to the dissatisfaction and fear of Israel and very lax oversight from the U.S. administration. Now Russia has supplied Iran with the S-300 Surface-to-Air Missile System, and once operable will provide Iran with an impenetrable shield against an Israeli military air strike.
If anything, Russia’s move has clarified the situation. Israel’s duty to defend itself has never been more urgent and an attack scaled to wipe out Iran’s nuclear emplacements would likewise be a favor to any number of Sunni states that tremble from Iran’s Shiite encroachments throughout the Arab world.
The U.S. administration has now stated publicly that Iran only needs 2-3 months to produce a bomb.
Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz on Monday acknowledged that the US has known for years that Iran is just two to three months form having enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb.
When asked how long the Obama administration has known this, he responded, “Oh, quite some time. They are now, they are right now spinning, I mean enriching with 9,400 centrifuges out of their roughly 19,000. Plus all the…R&D work. If you put that together it’s very, very little time to go forward. That’s the 2-3 months.”
Two days ago Iran’s seismological centre says a magnitude-4.1 earthquake has jolted a sparsely populated district some 200 km southeast of Bushehr, a Persian Gulf town that is home to Iran’s nuclear power plant.
The nuclear accord talks and the Bushehr Nuclear plant located in ancient Elam complement the Prophecy against Elam. Whether by Israeli airstrike or massive earthquake, the Prophecy against Elam will be fulfilled, and soon.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
That name is Jesus
