Zechariah 5 and Iran’s Nuclear Threat

Is the vision Zechariah saw of a flying roll with a lead basket in the end carried on stork wings, based and housed in Shinar (Iran), the nuclear threat we see today in Iran. The release of U.S. diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks reveal North Korea’s proliferation activities to Iran.

One leaked cable notes that some of the shipments for ballistic missiles and components from North Korea to Iran passed through China, raising questions over China’s role in proliferation

Iran and North Korea were both customers of the Khan network run by Pakistani nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan, and that they have collaborated on ballistic missiles.

The North Koreans call the missile the Musudan. The Musudan is listed in the document dump WikiLeaks’ released of U.S. diplomatic cables. One of the documents says that Iran has obtained 19 of the missiles from North Korea. The Islamic republic can now hit targets in Western Europe and deep into Russia.

The Taepodong X is also known under the names Nodong / Rodong-B, Mirim and BM25 Musudan. The missile is Developed by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, based on Soviet Union’s R-27 Zyb.

Musudan-ri is a rocket launching site in North Korea at 40°51′N, 129°40′E. It lies in southern North Hamgyong province, near the northern tip of the East Korea Bay. The area was formerly known as Taep’o-dong (대포동), from which the Taepodong rockets take their name.

North Korean media reported the successful launch of the Kwangmyŏngsŏng satellite by a Taepodong rocket from Musudan-ri. North Korea claimed their first satellite was successfully placed into orbit, but no independent sources have confirmed this. If this is true, the Iranians now have a platform that can put a nuclear payload into low orbit and deposit it thousands of miles away.

What Does Zachariah 5 say about the Missile

Zechariah 5
King James Version

1Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. 2And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. 3Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth:

The length of a cubit was based on the distance from the elbow to the fingertips, so it varied between different ancient groups of people. The average was 18 inches.

20 x 18 inches = 360 inches or 30 feet.



C is the circumference of the circle
π is Pi, approximately 3.142

(10 x 18inches) \ (3.142 x 2) = 180 \ 6.284 = 28.64 inches or 2.38 feet Radius

30 by 5 feet approximately

BM25 Musudan

Specifications Weight 12,000 kg Length 12 m Diameter 1.5 m, Warhead Conventional, Nuclear, Chemical, range 2,500 km – 4,000 km (est.)

Zechariah also informs us that it has a lead basket full of evil fire. The word used can be translated as woman\fire.


H784 אֵשׁ ‘esh (aysh) n-f.
1. fire (literally or figuratively)
[a primitive word]
KJV: burning, fiery, fire, flaming, hot.

Heres where someone either intentionally or accidentally made a mistake in the translation. The ephah (Basket) is filled with a fire offering instead of a woman.


802 is not spelled אִשָּׁ֣ה – Woman. 801 is spelled אִשָּׁ֣ה – Fire Offering


This mis-translation was noticed by Michael Rood in 2002 which caused a firestorm of criticism from the religious community.

However it is clear that a missile would not have an evil woman in a lead basket in the end of it flying with stork wings, based in Iran (Shinar).


Since the release of U.S. diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks we can see that we are much closer to this prophetic sign than anyone would have imagined. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is doing everything possible to bring the Mahdi back. The translation of evil fire (isheh = fire אִשָּׁה) (ishsa=woman אִשָּׁה) could not have been found until the 20th century. Zechariah did not understand the vision 2500 years ago and described what he saw based on objects of his time. Lead baskets with evil fire has a different meaning today.

    The commentaries for the Book of Zachriah and this chapter don’t say anything about a nuclear missile:

    The roll is mentioned in allusion to those large rolls on which the Jews write the Pentateuch. It is supposed that the roll contained the sins and punishments. This is wickedness;” that is, the woman represents the mass of iniquity of the nation. These women who was to carry the ephah (Basket), in which the woman INIQUITY was shut up, under the weight of a talent of lead. The strong wings of a stork points out the swiftness with which Judea was carried to captivity to meet the punishment which she deserved.

    It’s only world events today that make this chapter sound like they match what is going on in Iran.

      This is a spiritual writing.  The physical proponents represent spiritual things.  This is a writing about nuclear devastation and what brings destruction on the earth.  The writers denoting this are VERY correct.

       3Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth:

    Thank you, I have recently been searching for information about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have discovered so far.

    Ephah, measure:  “The measure you measure out will be measured to you again”.

    Ephah, a concubine of Caleb.  They had a son, Haran.  His name means “to utterly melt with fire”.

    Shinar is Bag h dad I raq

    This was given to me several years ago when God explained Zechariah 5 to me and I knew it was a cataclysm of unequaled proportion during our time.  I also had a dream twice in one night, 3 pages long, of some details of how it will happen.  It starts out, the earth was a clock and the hands were on 12 midnight and began to move counterclockwise, everywhere in the minute hand’s path were pinpricks of light…..

    In Christ, Victoria
