“I watched the ram as he charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” (Daniel 8:4)
I was reminded again of this verse by a story that came out in the past day or two. The verse of course speaks of the Persian ram with one horn longer than the other, charging out to the north, west and south. This is the verse in God’s Word that tells us when Iran, the Persian ram, runs out no one – not even the United States – can perform rescues.
Thankfully we can still rescue people today right there in the region in which Iran will invade. The story talks about 30,000 Yazidi people – mostly women and children – dying of starvation and thirst if they stay on the mountain, Mt. Sinjar, or being beheaded by ISIS militants if they come down.
Thousands of times the people pictured here may need to be rescued when Iran finally invades, but there will be no rescue for anyone at that time.
