MIDDLE EAST - Iran is buckling under the pressure of a massive heatwave passing across the Middle East, with temperatures soaring to nearly 70C. Scorching heat levels of 50C have already paralysed nearby Iraq, where officials were forced to call a four day public holiday because it was too hot to work. But the word " hot " has taken on an entirely new meaning in Iran's city of Bandar Mahshahr, where it was claimed that the city's heat index, or "feels-like temperature", was among the highest ever recorded. The heat index was recorded by a group of astonished weather experts who predict the country could be enduring some of the hottest urban temperatures ever endured by mankind. " That was one of the most incredible temperature observations I have ever seen and it is one of the most extreme readings ever in the world " said AccuWeather meteorologist Anthony Saglia. It is just a few degrees lower than the highest ever recorded heat index, which was 178F (81C) in Dhahran,Saudi Arabia on July 8, 2003.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The heat index is not the same as air temperature. It is a recognised index that combines air temperature and relative humidity in an attempt to determine the human-perceived equivalent temperature. In other words how hot does it feel to a human! It’s like the wind chill index. How cold does it actually feel. The heat index in Iran reached incredible figures - nearly 70C ! Great heat is mentioned in the Bible & almost every time it is in conjunction with God’s punishments & anger. See Revelation 16v9, 2 Peter 3v12 , James 1v11, Deuteronomy 29v24.
We know God’s punishments will be poured out on Iran ( the " treacherous dealer " ) who want to destroy Israel. Only last week , within just days of the signing of the highly controversial Iran Nuclear Deal ( after ' 10 years ' of negotiations ) Iran was struck by an massive meteor close to the capital Tehran , which caused widespread damage through several townships. Are all these events just a bizarre co-incidence - or - are they clear warnings of impending judgment ?? The signs are there if we are awake & watching !!!
REVELATION 7 v 16-17 - They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more ; neither shall the sun light on them , nor any heat. For the Lamb ( Christ ) which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, & shall lead them unto living fountains of waters : & God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
( ie. There will NOT be searing heat & drought in God's coming kingdom on earth )
