IDF Chief: Other Countries Are Ready For Potential Strike On Iran's Nuclear Sites-Jeremiah 49:34-39

The IDF Chief, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz has made what appears to be a very prophetic statement, perhaps unwittingly. The IDF Chief said recently that other countries have readied their armed forces for a potential strike on Iran's nuclear sites.

Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz did not specify which nations might be willing to support or take direct action against Iran. Still, his comments were one of the strongest hints yet that Israel may have the backing of other countries to strike the Islamic Republic to prevent it from developing nuclear arms.

"The military force is ready," Gantz said. "Not only our forces, but other forces as well." Read more.

The prophet Jeremiah prophesied that in the latter days that Elam, which is a province in modern day Iran, would be sent a sword by the Lord that would consume them.

One of Iran's main nuclear facilities, the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, is located slightly to the south of Khuzestan Province in Bushehr Province. Second map below shows Bushehr Province where Bushehr Nuclear facility, the main facility for Iran's nuclear project is located.

From wikipedia, Khuzestan Province (Persian: استان خوزستان‎, Ostān-e Khūzestān is one of the 31 provinces of Iran.

Historically, Khuzestan is what historians refer to as ancient Elam, whose capital was in Susa. The Achaemenid Old Persian term for Elam was Hujiyā, which is present in the modern name. Khuzestan, meaning "the Land of the Khuz" refers to the original inhabitants of this province, the "Susian" people (Old Persian "Huza" or Huja (as in the inscription at the tomb of King Darius I at Naqsh-e Rostam, (the Shushan of the Hebrew sources) where it is recorded as inscription as "Hauja" or "Huja"). This is in conformity with the same evolutionary process where the Old Persian changed the name Sindh into Hind/Hindustan. In Middle Persian the term evolves into "Khuz" and "Kuzi" The pre-Islamic Partho-Sassanid Inscriptions gives the name of the province as Khwuzestan. As the most ancient Iranian province, it is often referred to as the "birthplace of the nation," as this is where the history of the Persian Empire begins.

The prophecy, from Jeremiah 49:34-39 reads: (Please note that Jeremiah's prophecy is specific to Elam, and not the entire Islamic Republic of Iran (Persia).

Jer.49:34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,

Jer 49:35 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.

Jer 49:36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.

Jer 49:37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, [even] my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:

Jer 49:38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.

Jer 49:39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days,[that] I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.

This gives us yet another clear picture of just how close we are to the Lord's return. The prophecy specifically tells us that Elam will be destroyed in the latter days. Are we now seeing the beginning of the fulfillment of this prophecy being set up, with a coalition of other countries mentioned by the IDF Chief Benny Gantz along with Israel who are now ready to strike Iran's nuclear sites which will set off WWIII?
