purpose of the apocalypse. He believes that if he is able to destroy of the nation of Israel through nuclear holocaust and bring about war, chaos, and bloodshed in the world, it will usher in the hidden 12th Imam, otherwise known as the Islamic messiah. President Ahmadinejad has claimed the uprisings/riots in Egypt, North Africa, and around the Middle East is the work of the 12th Imam .
Principalities and Prince of Persia
Daniel 10:13 speaks about how the prince of Persia held up Daniel’s response to his prayer for 21days. This same principality is at work today in Iran. We have to remember that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). One can liken it to a puppeteer pulling the strings of a puppet. The nation of Iran may look like its being controlled by President Ahmadinejad (fleshly leader), but in actuality Iran is ruled and controlled by the demonic principality of the prince of Persia. Ahmadinejad is the puppet and the prince of Persia is the puppeteer pulling the strings.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Hatred of Israel
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has an intense hatred for the nation of Israel. He has stated on record that the World War II holocaust of the Jews never happened. Also, in June 2006 he stated that he wanted Israel wiped off the map. It is not a new thing in Persian history that a leader has intense hatred for Jews. The book of Esther tells us the story of Haman the Agagite, the Prime Minister of Persia. He devised a sinister plan to destroy all the Jews in the Persian empire at that time (Esther 3:6). The same spirit that drove Haman to destroy the Jews in Persia has been passed down through the centuries...from Antiochus Ephiphanes’s plot in the second century B.C., to Adolph Hitler’s plot in Europe’s Nazi Germany during World War II.
Ironically it is no surprise Ahmadinejad personifies the Persian version of Hitler. Iran had close ties with Nazi Germany before and during World War II. Iran was allied with Nazi Germany and was a supplier of oil to Nazi forces in Austria and Czechoslovakia. During this period in Tehran it was common to see placards in the marketplace that declared, “In heaven Allah is your master, and on Earth it is Adolf Hitler (source, source).” Tehran was used as a Nazi base in the Middle East during World War II. Nazi-Germany had a strong base of Arab-Muslims throughout the Middle East including the Palestinian Liberation Organization whose famous leader was Yasser Arafat, and Ba’ath Party the political party of the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Also the Muslim Brotherhood had connection with Hitler run Nazi-Germany.
Is Ahmadinejad Under the Influence of Demon/Jinn?
Some of the Iranian clerics claim that some of President Ahmadinejad associates are into black magic, and the summoning of genie's(demons/jinns). Ahmadinejad and some of the members of his cabinet consult with one of the most powerful sorcereres in Iran, Seyed Sadigh, to summons his jinn and to lead and direct government officials to give direction(source).
The spirit of the prince of Persia is strong in Iran. The same spirit that once possessed Haman is now leading it’s new host body Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with the goal of destroying the nation of Israel.
