In an interview about the latest global developments in light of End Times prophecies, apologist Don Stewart told evangelist Greg Laurie that the Bible points to Iran as a major threat not only to Israel but also to the United States.
Iran, formerly known as Persia, is mentioned along with Rosh in Ezekiel 38 in relation to a prophecy about a coalition having a military alliance in the last days, Stewart said in a Q&A with Pastor Laurie at the Harvest church in Irvine, California, this past week.
Rosh seems to refer to the modern day Russia, Stewart explained, saying we can see that the two countries are signing military pacts, which had never happened earlier. What seemed impossible in the past “is now falling in place,” he said.
Iran’s Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Minister Brigadier General Hosein Dehqan last month met with his Russian counterpart, General Sergei Shoigu, for a mutual defense pact to prevent “foreign meddling” led by the U.S., according to The Jerusalem Post.
People in Iran are Shia and they have a prophetic view of the last days that a final Imam, the 12th one, will come, and they will know who he is by the fact that he kills Christians and Jews to make this world a Caliphate, said Stewart, who has authored several books, including Living in the Light of Eternity, his latest, and The Rapture.
“They [the Shias in Iran] think they are divinely ordained to do this,” which explains their determination to have nuclear weapons, Stewart added.
About 10 percent of the Muslims in the world are Shia. Sunnis have a different view of the last days.
“We [the U.S.] are the big Satan; Israel is a little Satan,” for them, Stewart said, after he mentioned a 90-feet high inter-continental ballistic missile Iran has made “to hit us.”
