"If Iran had the Bomb; Jeremiah 50 and 51"

John and Doves,

If Iran had the Bomb, they would for sure strike the United States, which they call " the Great Satan".

Our *total destruction* is foretold in the book of Jeremiah, chapters 50 and 51. Let's take a look.

JER 50: 39
"It shall no more be inhabited *forever*.
Neither shall it be dwelt in
from generation to generation."

JER 50:40
"no man shall abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell there "
(literal here, not a spiritual application).

Jeremiah 51:26
" thou shalt be desolate *forever,* saith the LORD."  

JER 51:29
" a desolation without an inhabitant".

JER 51:49
"As Babylon hath caused
the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth."

JER 51:64
"Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her.
And they shall be weary".

How do we know that the 'Babylon' in these 2 chapters of Jeremiah actually refer to America ?

Because she is called the"hindermost" of nations. JER 50:12
(last notable nation to come upon the scene in history."

Who are 'Merathaim' and 'Pekod'.
I really don't know.
Maybe because the Russian military dominates the Alaskan islands, then that could be one of those terms.

And Canada certainly deserves dis*honorable mention, as she is way ahead of the U.S. in the persecution of Pastors, Churches and Christianity (and the Jewish people too).

As one reads through  Jeremiah 50 and 51, one begins to realize that this prophecy is a tale of two nations...Israel and America, written in chorus style.

One is the "Apple of God's eye," and the other is destined for everlasting destruction from the Lord.

1A .Here are the passages referring to Babylon in Jeremiah Ch.50, verses...
1-3,  9-17,   21-27,  29-32,
and 35-46.

1B. Here are passages referring to Babylon in Jeremiah Ch. 51, verses...
1-4,   7,8  11-14,  20-33,
36-49, and 52-64.

2 A.
Here are the passages referring to Israel in Jeremiah Ch. 50 verses...
4-8,   17-20,  28   33, 34   

2B. Here are the passages referring to Israel in Jeremiah Ch. 51 verses...  5,6    9,10   15-19,   34, 35   45, 50, 51,

Who are the nations that attack the U.S. ? 

JER 50:3
 " *a* nation" (singular) from the north.
In my view,  that singular nation could well be
North Korea , who has threatened repeatedly  to use an E M P bomb above America  to disable all our electric grids, electronics,
infrastructure which depends upon them and cell phones, lights, radio, 
T  V , cars etc. you name it.

That shut down would be considered  most necessary for the Magog War to proceed without opposition.
Ezekiel 38 and 39.

Then in verse 50:9, it says that "an assembly of great nations from the North
Country" will come to attack America.

In my view that would be Russia and her confederates
(infiltrating through Alaska and Canada ?)
Jeremiah 51: 27 mentions confedrates such as Turkey (Ararat) ;
possibly Armenia (Minni)
and Ashchenaz ( Eastern European nations).
Jeremiah verse 51: 28
also mentions Iran and Iraq (the Medes) as confederated with Russia.

So if Iran gets the Bomb, they will use it against both Israel and the United States. Freedom and Democracy would be gone forever. 

How grateful Americans should be that tiny Israel is defending all of us against evil, in order to uphold our liberties.
Praise God for Israel !!
May we always come to her defence.
