This title indeed encompasses a huge question, seeing how the most previous crisis—COVID-19—slammed the planet out of nowhere. The next crisis could be most anything. It could be the Rapture of the Church. That is the hope of all who name the name of Jesus Christ, of course.
That would not be a crisis for us. But it sure would be for the world!
However, in this article I’m thinking more in terms of a crisis of prophetic import that we can see gestating in today’s news. The fact that it possibly involves nuclear weaponry makes it indeed a crisis of potential world-affecting dimension.
We begin by thinking on how former President Donald Trump spoke frequently, as did Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on how Iran would never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
Trump, as we remember, took away the “nuclear deal” the Obama administration had made with the Iranian Ayatollahs. That greatly slowed Iranian progress toward development of such weaponry. But it didn’t stop it, as Russia, China, and even North Korea are thought to continue contributing to Iran’s quest to obtain a nuclear arsenal.
One of the first actions the new administration took after January 20, 2021, was to enter into reactivating the “nuclear deal”—to the great consternation, of course, of Netanyahu and IDF leadership. The Israeli prime minister has expressed yet again his unyielding contention that the Israel-hating Iranian leadership will never achieve nuclear status. The following news excerpt explains.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told US Vice President Kamala Harris in a late-night phone call on Thursday that he will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons…
Netanyahu in turn said that the US and Israel will continue to strengthen intelligence and security cooperation. He added that he is committed to preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons intended to destroy Israel.
Harris and Netanyahu agreed on the importance of the close cooperation between the two countries on regional security issues, which includes Iran’s nuclear program, according to the Vice President’s Office. (“Netanyahu tells Kamala Harris he won’t let Iran obtain nuclear weapons,” Jerusalem Post, March 4, 2021)
With the Biden administration thought to be largely run by Obama administration officials, it’s difficult to believe that the new administration won’t subvert any and all efforts of Israel’s actions to halt the nuclear development efforts in Iran’s underground mountainous facilities.
In all fairness to now VP Kamala Harris, she, surprisingly, consistently refused as a US senator to join in harsh criticism or condemnation of Israel for the most part. She and Benjamin Netanyahu, at least in the cursory contact they have made, seemed to have been in agreement on such things as dealing with hostilities in the Middle East and with actions against the COVID-19 so-called pandemic. Still, it is highly unlikely their seemingly cordial agreement in these matters will hold once the globalist momentum reaches full throttle.
Israel, according to the prophet Zechariah, is in for total condemnation in the future from all nations of earth.
And, at the moment, Iran seems to be the catalyst that could galvanize the world’s ire against the Jewish state.
As stated above, Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly made clear that Iran will never be allowed to achieve the ability to produce nuclear weapons. Now that his colleague in the US presidency, Donald Trump, is no longer in the White House, his determination seems to have doubled down to assure that Iran as a nuclear state never happens.
Netanyahu is backed even by those politically at odds with him, as reflected in the news excerpt that follows.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Thursday said the Israel Defense Forces is continuously updating its plans for a prospective military strike on Iranian nuclear sites.
Gantz, in an interview with Fox News, said the military plans would not be finalized until right before such a strike was set to be carried out.
“Until then, we will continue to build them [the plans], to improve them… to the highest professional level possible,” he said. (“Gantz: IDF updating military plans for potential strike on Iran nuclear sites,” Times of Israel, RR News, March 5, 2021)
We have written a number of times regarding the prophecy of Elam found in Jeremiah 49:34–39.
My friend Bill Salus, a highly studied prophecy writer on foretellings involving the region in question, gives fascinating insights into the developing crisis. Bill says the prophecy in Jeremiah 49:34–39 might be dealing with this very issue. Jeremiah says that Iran experiences a disaster, which, from the details of the prophecy, appears to be the result of a nuclear catastrophe. Salus unveils this prophecy in his book entitled, Nuclear Showdown in Iran, Revealing the Ancient Prophecy of Elam.

I highly recommend this as reading, if interested in what certainly looks to be stage-setting for the fulfillment of a catastrophe on the brink of taking place within the mountains of Iran.
Again, Israel is the number-one signal to watch to determine the lateness of the prophetic hour. The developing crisis is a reminder to, as our Lord commands, keep looking up in anticipation of His sudden coming for all who believe in His death, burial, and resurrection for their salvation (Luke 21:28).
