Iran in the End Times (Qiamat)
Iran is screaming “Death to Israel!”
But Iran’s alliance with Gog against Israel will bring God’s anger and punishment (great hailstones, fire, and brimstone).
Qiamat is the Arabic term for the Time of Judgment, or the End Times
It is interesting that there will be a group of players in the Gog/Magog invasion of Israel, but there is only one at the present time who is making much noise.
It will be Iran that moves the Beast into action.
Why do I discuss this?
I am concerned for those who foolishly engage in unholy alliances in the end times.
I am concerned for those innocent people who will be punished, because their governments are so blind as to follow Satan’s path.
This is what is said about Iran (Persia) and its unholy alliances in the end times:
"Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal… Persia, Ethiopia, and Put with them…"After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come … to the mountains of Israel…And you will go up, you will come like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your troops, and many peoples with you." Ezekiel 38:3-9
Notice, God says that He is against them, not for them.
Gog = prince of Rosh
Meshech and Tubal = originally meant an area in Turkey, but these peoples may have also migrated northward…today, people think of them as Russians
Persia = Iran
Ethiopia = Cush
Libya = Put
Persia will be keeping bad company in the last days. There are some others as well:
Eze 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: [and] many people with thee.
Gomer = Germany
Togarmah = Turkey
Why will this attack take place?
Eze 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places [that are now] inhabited, and upon the people [that are] gathered out of the nations,
Eze 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
Iran does not Israel to exist.
Iran thinks it is doing God’s will. So, what is God’s reaction to attacking Israel?
Eze 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my fury shall come up in my face.
Eze 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Eze 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
Eze 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
So, the people of Iran should try to distance themselves from military action against Israel.
God is promising fury, earthquakes (shaking of the land), sword, pestilence, blood, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
God is obviously not happy with Iran and its friends.
According to the Book of Daniel:
"And four great beasts were coming up from the sea…And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear [Persia-Iran] …"After this … behold, a fourth beast [Greco-Rome & the Antichrist Kingdom], dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth [a 1st Destructive Force]. It devoured and crushed, and trampled down the remainder with its feet [a 2nd Destructive Force]. (Daniel 7:2-7)
Now, to the Revelation (Book of the Apocalypse) 13:1-2 passage…
And I saw a beast [the Antichrist Kingdom] coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads… And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet [a Destructive Force] were like those of a bear [Iran] …
Notice that, at the End Time (Qiamat), “the feet of the Bear/Iran” will be a Destructive Force used by the Beast—the Antichrist.
The feet symbolize what makes the beast move. The beast will be still unless its feet carry him.
So Iran is the moving force of the Beast.
