Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami, the commander-in-chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), predicted that Israel would soon fall and Iran will use the impending “world war” as a “graveyard” for the policies of the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and their allies.
According to a report by MEMRI, Salami, in a speech that was broadcast on Ofogh TV (Iran) on Nov. 27, said, “Rest assured that we will witness the collapse of the Zionist regime, but we will never witness any serious damage to our revolution.”
He added, “Our enemies—America, England, Israel, and the regime of the Saud clan—have left their dens and are overtly meddling in the domestic affairs of this country. We are determined to confront them.”
“The Quran instructs us…, ‘do not take the Jews and the Christians as your allies,’” said Revolutionary Guards head Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami.
Biblical end-times prophecy tells us that Iran (Ram) would charge westward and northward and southward and we are already seeing Iran do that with its proxies in Bahrain, Iraq, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories, Syria, and Yemen.
“I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam (Iran). And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns (Ayatollah and IRGC), and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” Daniel 8:2-4
However, we also know from Biblical prophecy that Iran’s efforts to become the dominant Muslim nation in the Middle East are short-lived as Turkey (Goat) defeats Iran and attempts to re-establish its former Ottoman Empire. It must be remembered that Turkey is Sunni and Iran is Shia. Intolerance between the two often leads to violence. Also, Sunnis represent almost 90% of all Muslims.
“And the goat (Turkey) had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram (Iran) with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. Then the goat became exceedingly great (revived Ottoman Empire),” Daniel 8:5-8
Biblical prophecy then reveals that Turkey’s revived Ottoman empire is broken up into four possibly by the U.N., who would not want to see a revived Ottoman Empire established. We then see that out of one of these nations the Antichrist (Little Horn) arises.
“but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven. Out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist), which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven. And some of the host and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them. It became great, even as great as the Prince of the host … As for the horn that was broken, in place of which four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise from his nation, but not with his power. And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their limit, a king of bold face, one who understands riddles, shall arise. His power shall be great—but not by his own power, and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints.” Daniel 8:8-11,22-24
