-Iran and Russia Headed for an End-Time Scenario?

Here’s a few articles I read this week that indicate that Iran will soon have nuclear weapons and a missile capable of delivery.  Also, Russia and Iran seem to be forming a close alliance that is causing some concerns:

While Bush was president the media tried to ignore Iran as much as possible hoping to head off military action by the former administration to stop Iran. In fact the media questioned any concerns that the former president had with Iran and always published data that showed Iran to be years away from going nuclear.

Now with a new president in charge that they trust, the main stream media is all of a sudden starting to let stories get through which clearly show that Iran will soon be a viable nuclear threat. This week Iran launched their first satellite into space–demonstrating that they now have a potential missile delivery system for their upcoming nuclear weapons.

You probably missed these latest developments on the nightly news programs, this news is still being downplayed for some reason.

Now the final article– I found it in WorldNetDaily, this one by Hal Lindsey: “Zero hour approaches

For those unfamiliar with Hal Lindsey, he has made it his life work to study current events and identify how they may be a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.  

In this article, Hal does what he is best at– identifying how events in the Middle East are quickly progressing towards an end-time Biblical scenario. With Iran on the brink of having nuclear weapons, Hal cites the beginning of an Ezekiel end-time coalition with Russia and Iran in the lead against Israel.

According to Lindsey, a potential Ezekiel 38-39 scenario attack against Israel now is beginning to fall in to place and coming at a time when we have a new administration that is ready to make concessions and might blink when it comes to a possible confrontation with a nuclear power like Russia. Hal always does a great job at scaring the heck out of me!           *Top

    There is not one iota of Bible prophecy related to Iran or any modern day country for an alleged future endtime.

    Hal Lindsey has proven himself to be a false prophet with his predictions of the end in 1988, (no personal disrespect) which he alleged to be within one generation (40 years) of the modern state of Israel (which has nothing to do with fulfilled Bible prophecy) resettling in Palestine.

    That prophecy documented in the Late Great Planet earth is a testimony of the continual barrage of embarrassment to the integrity of the Scriptures pawned on the world by these future doom and gloom fanatics fomented in the frenzy of terrorism and fermented in the media.

    The 70 weeks of Daniel re the end of national (Old Covenant Israel) and the fulfillment of Bible prophecy happened in 70 AD with the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple (sanctuary).

    That was the end/fulfillment of all Bible prophecy, per the Lord in Luke 21:20-22.

    But when you see Jerusalem compassed by armies, then know that its desolation is near [Dan. 9:24-27].

    For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. (Luke 21:20-22.

    Assuredly, I say to you, this generation [Jesus’ own in the first century] would by no means pass away till all things take place. (Luke 21:22)

    Can we have a little faith in the words of Christ?

    Thanks for your comments William,
    You do make some good points on Hal, but he never claimed to be a prophet–only a Bible teacher and he is very much a product of Dispensationalist Biola where he graduated from.

    I have long since left the Dispensational camp and actually have come to appreciate some of the Preterist views that you support. Actually I believe that there is something missing from every eschatological view and we will probably all be somewhat surprised how it all plays out. Here is some fuller comments I made on this same issue on another blog:
