The resurgence of Iran was prophesied by Daniel.
I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. I watched the ram as he charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great (Daniel 8:3,4.)The angel told Daniel that this vison would be fulfilled during a time of wrath a the end of the times of the Gentiles (Dan 8:17,19). The ram prepresented Persia, which is now called Iran.
The the ram had two horns, representing two powerful leaders. The first horn was fulfilled by Ayotallah and the Islamic Revolution in the 1980s. The second leader emerges later, but is more powerful. I believer the we are now seeing the emergence of the second horn in Iran. That is why President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is provoking the West. He is attempting to re-establish Iran as the center of revolutionary Islam.
Christians should understand What is Going On.
The rapid advance of Islam in the least two decades is the White Horse of Revelation.
