Could Iran wipe Israel off the map as Deputy Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi threatened?

Deputy Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi threatened Israel on Friday by saying, “Iran’s warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map.”

Will Iran be able to accomplish such a feat at this time in history?asia map

Certainly, Iran is much larger than Israel, and yet:

The fact that Israel exists at all is miraculous. Those who do not believe or know the God of the Bible, may not understand that only He will determine the future of Israel.

“Remember these, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are My servant; I have formed you, you are My servant; O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me!”Isaiah 44:21

But Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. Joel 3:20

Ahmad Vahidi should be very clear that any threat he makes can only be carried out if God allows it to be and will never succeed while God is protecting Israel. It is my belief that we are in the last days and that Israel will continue until the end.

It is only by God’s will that any people exists. We are all here by the grace and power of God:

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11

When we become so bold as to believe that we will be able to take out the nation of Israel that God has called His own, we have become arrogant indeed.

There was another time when an ally of Iran, Syria, gathered for war. The story is found in 2 Kings chapter 6. We find that the King of Syria believed he could take out Israel:

Therefore he sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city. 2 Kings 6:14

A young man in Israel’s army became very afraid.

And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

The prophet of God, Elisha answered,

“Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see. Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  2 Kings 6:16-17

I believe that the hills and valleys around Israel will again be full when Iran approaches to “wipe them off the map.”

    I think there is a lot of potential for Israel to be wiped off the face of the Earth. With Iran flexing its muscles and the US not supporting Israel like we used to. I think there is a widening opening of opportunity for Iran to do something stupid. But then again I think WW3 can start any day due to what N Korea is doing as well.

      Only the Lord can save Israel and I hope that at this time He will. I believe He will. The US is not mentioned in the book of Revelation as far as I can tell. We are the nation that will decline, it seems to me, if we are in the end times and many people agree that we are.
