Countdown To Armageddon?
Rob Rennie | Iran is one step closer to enriching uranium and building a nuclear bomb. Is this a signal of Armageddon? What should the response of the United States and Israel be?
According to YNet News, Iran has completed the installation of centrifuges in their Fordo underground nuclear facility:
“Iran has been enriching uranium up to a level of 20% – just short of what is considered a military level.”
They admit the centrifuges aren’t yet active, however, this new development illustrates how close Iran is to getting a nuclear weapon. Should Israel be worried? In short, yes. But the real question is, should they consider a preemptive strike.
I’m no military commander, but my common sense tells me that if they attack Iran, the retaliation will be fierce, of Biblical proportions, if you will, not just from Iran, but from all the countries in the Middle East. If they don’t strike, they risk Iran going nuclear.
But at the end of the day, if someone’s dead-set on obtaining nuclear capability, no one is going to stop them, so what can you do, other than to threaten and scream, “Stop!” at the top of your lungs, which both the U.S. and Israel have already done via heavy sanctions.
There’s only one thing left to do at this point and that’s pray. Pray that Iran, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and the rest of the Middle East come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. This is our last resort.
Israel can’t pray this on its own because most Jews are in spiritual darkness, so that leaves only one option and that’s for us, here in the U.S. to pray for them.
We need to pray for them to receive the Gospel message, come into a personal relationship with the Lord and for the Lord’s will to be done in their lives. This is the only thing that will save them and ultimately save their souls.
