June 17/09. Students of Bible prophecy should keep a close eye on events
unfolding in Iran and the epicenter, and keep praying for the Lord to have
mercy on that country. With upwards of a million young, pro-democracy
Reformers on the streets of Iran demanding an end to the Radicals’ regime,
Iranian security forces have murdered as many as
two dozen protesters.
Iranian leaders are now threatening the Reformers
with the death penalty.
Ahmadinejad — freshly anointed by the Supreme Leader to stay as the face and
voice of the regime’s apocalyptic agenda — couldn’t care less.
Ahmadinejad headed straight for Moscow yesterday.
There, he met with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and leaders of the
Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO)
to continue building a political and military alliance between Russia,
China, Iran and Islamic countries in Central Asia.
Currently, Iran has
“observer” status in the SCO, but has requested full member status. The SCO
alliance is evocative of the eastern-portion of the biblical alliance
Ezekiel 38-39 that will come against
Israel and seek to destroy the Jewish people in what the Bible calls the
“last days” of history.
