The West vs. Iran: The "Next Prophetic War" 

The IRAQ War began at Shushan Purim, March 19, 2003 and continued to December 15, 2011, just as Hanukkah was about to begin that year. 


Years ago, Kevin Swift wrote in his book Insights in Prophecy: Unlock the Ancient Prophecies of Daniel & Revelation (pg. 45), "Global tensions have been escalating over the last two decades. The U.S. led NATO alliance will one day be forced to attack and overthrow Iran, further enraging Islam and her allies—the Chinese-Russian-Iranian coalition"

Iraq’s defeat by the American-led coalition commenced on March 19, 2003, at Shushan Purim—the day Purim is celebrated in Jerusalem. Triumph over neighboring Iran by Western powers has also long been predicted in Daniel 8:1-8. In fact, this Persian Gulf conflict with old Persia seems to be the catalyst that sets in motion a torrent of end-time war following disaster after disaster, which pounce in quick succession. 

The prophet Daniel was taken into vision “in the province of Elam; in the vision I was beside the Ulai Canal (8:2),” which is in the Iran, Iraq and Kuwait region near the Persian Gulf. Daniel “looked up, and there before me was a [Islamic] Ram with two horns [two countries—Iraq and Iran], standing beside the canal, and the horns were long [two prominent Islamic nations in the Gulf region]. One of the horns [Iran] was longer [geographically bigger/stronger] than the other and grew up later… suddenly a Goat [Western powers] with a prominent horn between his eyes [America] came from the west, crossing the whole earth [a great distance] without touching the ground [with speed]. He came toward the two-horned [Iraq and Iran Islamic] Ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at him in great rage. I saw him attack the [Islamic] Ram furiously, striking the Ram and shattering his two horns [Iraq and Iran]. The [Islamic] Ram was powerless to stand against him; the Goat [from the West] knocked him [Islamic Ram] to the ground and trampled on him, and no one could rescue the Ram from his power. The [Western] Goat became very great, but at the height of his power his large horn [America] was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven [dispersed in all directions of the globe],” (Daniel 8:3-8). According to Daniel 11, the key figure who set the stage for this conflict with the West because of his push for Iran's Nuclear Program was Iran's 4th president Hojatolislam Ali Alvar Hashemi Rafsanjani.


Most people believe the Ram and Goat confrontation of Daniel 8 occurred long before the birth of Jesus, and therefore has nothing at all to do with our modern world. However, Daniel was told in no uncertain terms, “the vision” of war concerns “the appointed time of the end” (Daniel 8:19). These Persian Gulf regional clashes, Iraq’s defeat followed by Iran’s demise, set the stage for a wider Middle East war, the last days and the fulfillment of THE KINGDOM CALENDAR

Gabriel explains the vision of war to the prophet Daniel later in the chapter . He is told the conflict involves Media (modern-day Iraq) and Persia (modern-day Iran), which two horns sit atop the Islamic “Ram”. Iraq is overcome first, followed by Iran. Daniel said, “One of the horns was longer than the other [Iran is larger geographically, and stronger than Iraq] but grew up later [meaning, the Iranian confrontation would follow some time after the Iraqi overthrow],” (8:3).

Centuries ago, Bible translators connected the confronting “Goat” to “Greece”; however, the Hebrew word interpreted as Greece is “Yawan” (“Javan”). Javan was one of the sons of Japheth , and at the writing of Daniel, Javan implied not only Greece, but also regional powers from the West. Furthermore, Daniel’s vision involves events at the “time of the end,” so it must be applied to modern times. Javan, Greece and the Western powers, are said to have a prominent horn—the first king (United States).

Prophecy indicates the Western NATO Goat will defeat the two-horned (Iraq/Iran) Islamic Ram. Nevertheless, the prominent horn (America) will quickly be “broken off,” indicating her loss of world dominance. In its place, four major power bases will emerge—the New World Order. From one of these horns of power (Western European Union) the “little horn”—literally the smallest nation in the world (0.2 square miles)—will gain worldwide supremacy. The “stern-faced king, a master of intrigue” who blasphemes the Holy One of Israel and persecutes the true believers, will emerge from the vestiges of darkness to rule with great authority.

Civilization originated in the Middle East, and the end of civilization as we know it will likely begin there. Regional and global tensions have been escalating in the last two decades. Iran's ramping up of military adventurism in the region and against Israel, and/or the restarting of their nuclear enrichment program may be the catalyst that forces the West to confront Iran.  Nonetheless, the U.S.-NATO-Israeli alliance will quickly overthrow Iran, adding to the rage already spinning out of control between the West and the Chinese-Russian-Iranian coalition, quickly leading to global confrontation between the East and the West and nuclear holocaust.

Israel and Syria will also likely clash; Egypt may rebel against Israel if El-Sisi is overthrown by a more powerful military leader in Egypt. The Russian Bear will likely attack NATO countries with overwhelming force, devastating three countries in Western Europe. Daniel 7:5 predicts, “And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a BEAR. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!

Once nuclear armaments are unleashed, mayhem and global holocaust will spiral out of control. America will falter and collapse and this once powerful nation will lose her prodigious superpower status. 

"Haggai picked up the idea of God shaking the nations (2:6-9), only this time not only would the economic situation be changed, but political powers would be restructured. The shaking of the nations would be an eschatological intervention by God into world history, causing the nations to destroy themselves through war, massive fratricide," Asbury Bible Commentary.

We're living in the final days -- and God's prophetic time clock has already begun as Jerusalem and the state of Israel reaches their 70th anniversary as a nation on May 14, 2018, and President Donald Trump opens the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, but abandonment and hatred of this small nation will rise quickly in the troubled world just ahead.

"The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it," Zechariah 12:1-3

The faithful who adhere to the "commandments of God" will experience unjust hatred and persecution, but ultimately they will receive their reward of an eternal home in the New Jerusalem basking in the glory and presence of Almighty God and our Messiah--Yeshua, Jesus.
