Iran's Moves in the Middle East - Why Should You Care about the BEAR?


This is why you should care about the Iranian Bear:  Iran's moves in the Middle East:

Revelation19:10  Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Prophecy is Important!!! It is the testimony of Jesus and it reveals Him!
This is the prophecy of the last and final Beast Kingdom:
Revelation 13:2 (KJV) 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD (Ancient Greece)and his feet were as [the feet] of a BEAR  (Ancient Medo-Persia) and his mouth as the mouth of a LION  (Ancient Babylon) and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat and great authority.
Daniel 2&7 tell us who the leopard, the bear, and the lion are. It is not left to speculation. Daniel tells us that the Lion is Babylon, the Leopard is Greece, and the Bear is Medo-Persia. And he tells us just how this final kingdom will behave:

Daniel 7:19 (KJV) Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
The FEET of the last Empire is IRAN in modern day geography.  It is the area of the Ancient Medo-Persians. This is why it matters! Many prophecy teachers are teaching it is Europe, but the BIBLE tells us exactly who is involved and what we should be watching for.  Will we listen to the words of JESUS or man? Iran is the FEET of the BEAR which will stomp and crush.  Watch IRAN closely.

Here is an excerpt from a lengthy essay by Michael Doran for Mosaic Magazine Obama’s Secret Iran Strategy- The president has long been criticized for his lack of strategic vision.  But what if a strategy, centered on Iran, has been in place from the start and consistently followed to this day? Although the article is long, if you are a student of prophecy is packed full of information and it really helps us to make sense of why the POTUS acts the way he does toward Israel, and toward the Middle East as a whole.
President Barack Obama wishes the Islamic Republic of Iran every success. Its leaders, he explained in a recent interview, stand at a crossroads. They can choose to press ahead with their nuclear program, thereby continuing to flout the will of the international community and further isolate their country; or they can accept limitations on their nuclear ambitions and enter an era of harmonious relations with the rest of the world. “They have a path to break through that isolation and they should seize it,” the president urged—because “if they do, there’s incredible talent and resources and sophistication . . . inside of Iran, and it would be a very successful regional power.”
How eager is the president to see Iran break through its isolation and become a very successful regional power? Very eager. A year ago, Benjamin Rhodes, deputy national-security adviser for strategic communication and a key member of the president’s inner circle, shared some good news with a friendly group of Democratic-party activists. The November2013 nuclear agreement between Tehran and the “P5+1”—the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany—represented, he said, not only “the best opportunity we’ve had to resolve the Iranian [nuclear] issue,” but “probably the biggest thing President Obama will do in his second term on foreign policy.” For the administration, Rhodes emphasized, “this is healthcare . . . , just to put it in context.” Unaware that he was being recorded, he then confided to his guests that Obama was planning to keep Congress in the dark and out of the picture: “We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away.”
Why the need to bypass Congress? Rhodes had little need to elaborate. As the president himself once noted balefully, “[T]here is hostility and suspicion toward Iran, not just among members of Congress but the American people”—and besides, “members of Congress are very attentive to what Israel says on its security issues.” And that “hostility and suspicion” still persist, prompting the president in his latest State of the Union address to repeat his oft-stated warning that he will veto “any new sanctions bill that threatens to undo [the] progress” made so far toward a “comprehensive agreement” with the Islamic Republic.
As far as the president is concerned, the less we know about his Iran plans, the better. Yet those plans, as Rhodes stressed, are not a minor or incidental component of his foreign policy. To the contrary, they are central to his administration’s strategic thinking about the role of the United States in the world, and especially in the Middle East.
Moreover, that has been true from the beginning. In the first year of Obama’s first term, a senior administration official would later tell David Sanger of the New York Times, “There were more [White House] meetings on Iran than there were on Iraq, Afghanistan, and China. It was the thing we spent the most time on and talked about the least in public[emphasis added].” All along, Obama has regarded his hoped-for “comprehensive agreement” with Iran as an urgent priority, and, with rare exceptions, has consistently wrapped his approach to that priority in exceptional layers of secrecy.  Click here to read the entire essay.
