Iranian President Ahmadinejad Has Made A Historic Visit To Iraq

By Jimmy DeYoung

Iranian President Ahmadinejad received a warm welcome in Baghdad, Iraq on the first ever visit to Iraq by an Iranian President. This visit marking the culmination of a process of normalization between the two countries after the eight year long war they fought back in the 1980's.

At a joint news conference with Iraqi President Talabani, the Iranian President said that his visit to Iraq opened a new page in the Iraqi-Iranian relations and that the two nations were determined to strengthen their political and economic cooperation, adding that a united and powerful Iraq is in the interest of all countries in the region.

The Iraqi President Talabani, who warmly greeted the Iranian President, said that Ahmadinejad's visit to Iraq was truly an historic event.

The visit of an Iranian President to Iraq is not only an historic event, but a prophetic event as well.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad's state visit to Iraq, the first ever by an Iranian President, marks the end of normalization for the two Middle Eastern nations who fought an eight year long war that resulted in the deaths of millions of Iraqi's and Iranian's.

During Ahmadinejad's visit he called for the United States military to withdraw from Iraq so that this war-torn nation could rebuild itself and become a major power in the region.

President Ahmadinejad's counterpart in Iraq is President Talabani who you may recall is not only the President of Iraq but also the leader of the Kurdish people of Iraq. Let me remind you that the Iranians of today are the Persians of Biblical times. And the Kurds of northern Iraq are the Medes of Biblical times, the Medes and the Persians.

Ahmadinejad spoke prophetic words as he called for Iraq to become an economic and political powerhouse in the region. That's exactly what Bible prophecy says will happen. Iraq today was Babylon in Biblical times and will become the economic, political, governmental capital of the world in the last days.

Revelation 18 reveals this scenario, a scenario that calls for the world leader during that time to be the antichrist, who will set up his headquarters in Iraq or Biblical Babylon, only to have it destroyed in one hour, Revelation 18: 10, 17 and 19 and also Revelation 16:17-20.

By the way, the Medes will assist in that destruction and that's found in Jeremiah 51:11. The Medes in this passage are the Kurds of today. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
