United Nations Bazaar

20 09 2013

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is pictured during an interview with U.S. television network NBC in TehranWith less fanfare than recent years, the UN General Assembly opened last Tuesday. However, it is bound to heat up next week. Two days are of particular interest prophetically speaking.

First: The UN BAZAAR next Tuesday 9-24 when President Obama and Iran’s new President Rouhani both speak the same day. The big news outside the speeches will be whether they shake hands in the hallway. The two countries have not had a Presidential handshake since the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Beware the Bazaar.

I call it the Bazaar because that is the Persian (Iranian) word for marketplace. In the Middle East it is usually characterized by a lot of trash talkin’ and wheeling and dealing, and serious haggling over the price. Anyone who pays the asking price is laughed at all the way to the bank.

Next week President Obama should be very careful because the new Iranian President is a master of the Bazaar. He is saying exactly what the West wants to hear, but is nothing but the mouthpiece of the Ayatollah whose hardline determination for nuclear weapons is unchanged. Beware the sweet talking Persian on Tuesday. Rouhani and Ahmadinejad remind me of the “good cop/bad cop” concept on American TV shows. Tuesday may turn out indeed to be a bizarre Bazaar (pun intended).

Second: Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu speaking on October 1, one day after meeting with President Obama in Washington, DC. Thursday, PA President Abbas will meet with Obama. Last year Netanyahu made major news with his “Iranian Red-Line” speech. This year the stakes are much higher with the events in Syria and Egypt, but primarily because Iran is a year closer to their goal of nuclear weapons. He warned the US: Don’t Be Fooled.

Ayatollah Khamenei shrewdly trumped President Obama’s 2012 campaign gaffe offering more “flexibility” to Russia, “after the election.” Last Tuesday, the Ayatollah almost mockingly called for more flexibility in Iran’s talks with the West. Beware the Bazaar!

Christian Zionists and believers everywhere need to undertake some serious intercession next week for Yehovah God’s purpose to be achieved and that His enemies be confused and confounded.

But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of Yehovah; their vindication will come from me. I, Yehovah, have spoken! Isaiah 54:17 NLT

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
