Israel Will Destroy Iran’s Bushehr Nuclear Reactor – The Jeremiah 49 Prophecy

Comment by Truth:

Elam in red

It is not a matter of if, but when. Jeremiah the Prophet saw it long ago.

Jeremiah wrote a prophecy about the destruction of Elam. The name “Elam” means little to us until we realise that “Elam” is now part of modern day Iran. It is located in the west central part of Iran on the north end of the Persian Gulf. It is less than 200 miles across the Gulf from Kuwait, of Desert Storm fame.

But here’s the kicker – Elam is home to Bushehr, the site of Iran’s premier nuclear reactor. The Bushehr reactor was loaded with Russian nuclear fuel rods in 2010. John Bolton, former US Ambassador to the UN, said in 2010, “Israel’s got a problem, because once the fuel rods are inserted into the reactor, an attack … would almost certainly release the radiation into the atmosphere” ref. Fox News

John Bolton feared that an Israeli attack on the Bushehr reactor would release radiation into the atmosphere. His fears were well founded. Here is what Jeremiah (from Jeremiah 49:34-38) has to say:

34) This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah:

35) This is what the LORD Almighty says: “See, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might.

36) I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam’s exiles do not go.

37) I will shatter Elam before their foes, before those who want to kill them; I will bring disaster on them, even my fierce anger,” declares the LORD. “I will pursue them with the sword until I have made an end of them.

38) I will set my throne in Elam and destroy her king and officials,” declares the LORD.

Is it reasonable to equate the “mainstay of their might” with Iran’s Bushehr nuclear capabilities?

Is it reasonable to assume that Elam’s exiles flee to avoid the radioactive fallout released from a destroyed Bushehr nuclear reactor?

Given the hostilities between Israel and Iran, is it reasonble to assume that Israel will be the agent of that destruction?

Adrian Blomfield, in his “Iran analysis” article written for The Telegraph on March 7, 2012 said:

“There will be little time for further equivocation. Mr Netanyahu’s intelligence chiefs have concluded that Iran’s nuclear programme will be immune to a go-it-alone Israeli attack within six to nine months. After that, the bulk of Iran’s nuclear material will have been moved to the Fordow enrichment plant, which is buried so far into a mountain side that Israel’s US-provided bunker-busters may not be able to destroy it.”

Given Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at AIPAC yesterday, I think that we can expect to see the Jeremiah 49 Prophecy fulfilled before this summer.

  1. Elam was an ancient civilization centered in the far west and southwest of modern-day Iran, stretching from the lowlands of what is now Khuzestan and Ilam Province, as well as a small part of southern Iraq. The modern name Elam is a transcription from Biblical Hebrew, corresponding to the Sumerian elam(a), the Akkadian elamtu, and the Elamite haltamti. Elamite states were among the leading political forces of the ancient near east.[1]

    Gen 10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
    Gen 10:23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
    Gen 10:24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
    Gen 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
    Gen 10:26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
    Gen 10:27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
    Gen 10:28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
    Gen 10:29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
    Gen 10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
    Gen 10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
    Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

    Thanks for this information, so much in the scriptures for us to discover and see as we watch all these things being fulfilled. Never ceases to amaze me.

    and Justasheep7, perhaps in fact your article is related for the times we are living in.


  2. Reminds me that a very careful study of Jeremiah 46-51 is in order. All the players from that region are mentioned in quite a bit of detail.


  3. I’m getting really annoyed with all the banter I see from Bible teachers insisting that Russia is mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39. We’ve discussed it at length here, and I did some additional research on my own into each name. All the connections show up in Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan with some possible connections to the east in to Bulgaria and Romania. I don’t see any record of a migration of those ancient peoples of up to the area around Moscow or any other major Russian cities. I’ll give them – that people from the northernmost parts could refer to to Russia- but it hardly seems to be a clear requirement. Am I the only one that gets irritated when I see people basing Bible predictions on flimsy or contradictory evidence?


  4. Good job to Truth on identifying Elam by the way. I had not looked at that in a while and that was Rock-solid with the history of the region and what is going on there now.


  5. Israel became a nation reborn on May 14, 1948 (Ezekiel 36:24) Major War 1948.

    Four red moons followed. (1) April 13, 1949 Passover blood red moon (2)October 7, 1949 Sukkot blood red moon (3)April 2, 1950 Passover blood red moon (4)September 26, 1950 blood red moon.

    June 6 Day War in 1967. (1)April 24, 1967 Passover blood red moon (2) October 18, 1967 Sukkot blood red moon(3)April 13, 1968 Passover blood red moon (4)October 6, 1968 Sukkot blood red moon. (One red moon before the 6 Day War followed by three more red moons) Major War 1967

    What will happen in 2013 since Four blood red moons will follow? OR will April 15,2014 pass with one red moon like what happened in the Six Day War followed by three red moons meaning the Sunni Arabs will go to war against Israel sometime after April 15,2014 and before October 8,2014?

    (1)April 15,2014 Passover blood red moon (2)October 8,2014 Sukkot blood red moon (3)April 4,2015 Passover blood red moon (4)September 28,2015 Sukkot blood red moon.

    Will 2013 A.D. be the year when Israel crushes the Sunni Arab terrorists living along all her borders in fulfillment of the Psalms 83 prophecy? Or will this prophecy fulfillment take place after April 2014 & before October 8,2014? (Major War either 2013 or 2014)

    Syrian president Assad has told his generals should he die he wants his generals to launch their rockets upon Israel’s cities. Should the Syrian commanders follow Assad’s advice Damascus will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1)

    God used the sun to help Joshua destroy Israel’s ancient enemies. (Joshua 10:12-14) Today, God uses the four red moons to warn the Israelites their enemies plans of attack.
