. . . so said one of the kings of the Persian ram.
Once again we see the Iranian regime speaking prophecy from Daniel.
If the Signpost interpretation is true, the Iranian regime is planning a massive invasion of the Middle East. Daniel 8’s Persian ram, and Daniel 7’s second beast, the bear, tell us of this invasion, otherwise known as the Second Signpost.
A First “Prophetic Utterance”
A few months ago, the regime spoke of itself as the ram from Daniel 8 when it mentioned the IRGC (the second horn) growing (from Dan. 8:3) and the military being concerned with the west, the south, and the north (from Dan. 8:4).
A Second “Prophetic Utterance”
Now in this story from MEMRI, one of the kings of the Persian ram speaks about their military in language eerily reminding us of the bear in Daniel 7:5.
General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force (the rocket force), spoke of American bases in the region referring to them as, “pieces of meat before our teeth.”
Daniel 7:5 (NASB) says,
And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and thus they said to it, ‘Arise, devour much meat!’ (emphasis mine)
General Hajizadeh said,
Take a look here. This is the Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar. . . This is the Al-Dhafra Air Base, located in the UAE. . . This is the situation of the Americans. They are like pieces of meat before our teeth.
The meat that Daniel 7:5 refers to is that of many nations, for in that vision nations are represented as wild animals. Iran is to devour many nations, gorging on “meat.” This would also include with the nations, all those who as Daniel 8:4 says, would be “anyone to rescue from his power.”
That would potentially be the United States and its military capabilities.
The Persian ram earlier spoke of the horn that grew and that it is concerned with running north, south, and west.
Now, the bear has spoken of targets in the Middle East that are like meat waiting to be gorged on, to be devoured by its teeth.
What else might the regime say, prior to the Second Signpost, that is “coincidentally” from the verses telling us of this horrific event? What else might God let the kings of Media and Persia say that bears witness to God’s Word?
