My Trip to Iran: The Story Behind the Story

By David Mould: Updated September 6th, 2019


Enshrined inside the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (at the Dulles Airport annex in Virginia), the Enola Gay will forever be known as “the plane that dropped the bomb.” On August 6th, 1945, she was America’s Flying Superfortress … authorized by President Truman to conduct a mission debated to this day.

Here's the backdrop

World War 2 was coming to an end. Germany had surrendered, but not Japan. On July 26th, 1945, President Truman and the Allies issued the Potsdam Declaration, urging Japan to surrender, or face “prompt and utter destruction.”

Japan refused — and the mission to bomb went forward.

On this 1,500-mile flight from Tinian island to Hiroshima, the Enola Gay carried a crew of 12. Not privy to top-secret tests that had given scientists in New Mexico a pretty good idea of what was to come, they flew nonchalantly.

THE CREW OF THE ENOLA GAY


Incredibly, pilot and Commander Paul Tibbets wrote that some of his crew — in blissful ignorance as to the true nature of their cargo — actually played cards on the lethal bomb, code named “Little Boy.“

ALL 9,700 POUNDS OF “LITTLE BOY“


I sometimes wonder if we Seventh-day Adventists aren’t doing the same thing … playing cards on the bomb.

  • Do we really know what God has given us in the gift of prophecy?
  • Do we half know what lies in our collective womb, and in our books?

Take one prophecy for example — Daniel 9:25 (which predicted the year Messiah would come the 1st time). Its intricate interpretation is spelled out in The Great Controversy, pages 324 – 328, but how many of us have read it? Or even if we’ve read it, how many of us have simply skimmed over it, not realizing what we’re reading?

DESTINATION IRAN


Roughly 15 million Jews worldwide want nothing to do with Jesus as Messiah. Believing this one prophecy capable of making a major impact on them all, in June of 2019 I set out on the first leg of a journey to prove it.

Q.   Destination?

A.    Iran — where Daniel 9 was given in the first place!

To amplify this prophecy, we desperately needed footage of:

  • whatever’s left of the palace at Shushan, where the angel Gabriel met with the prophet Daniel (See Daniel 8: 2, 16), and
  • the tombs of the three kings mentioned in the interpretation of the prophecy: Cyrus, Darius and Artaxerxes.


We’d already found most of what we needed when one day, while filming in Hamedan (where the tomb of Esther and Mordecai is located) one of three Muslim men with me pointedly asked: “prophecy, what is that?”

What does this suggest to you?

To me it confirmed something I’d already believed.

This prophecy is not just for Israel, it is for Islam too. The lack of prophecy in the Quran isn’t just Islam’s Achilles heel, it’s a gaping hole, waiting to be filled. Properly presented, I believe Daniel 9:25 can not merely fill that hole, it can open new vistas to the Muslim mind and have a major impact on Islam. I really believe this.

COMPLETING OUR PROJECT


The task facing us now is the completion of our project.

To finish it — to film in every location called for in our script — we must now travel to the six remaining countries on our shot list: Israel, France, Germany, Scotland, Great Britain and one undisclosed location.


More than reconnaissance, these trips and videography are slated to cost us every bit of $30,000.00. No, we’re not playing cards with this prophecy. Not by a long shot. Rather, we’re determined to take Daniel 9: 25 to the ends of the earth.

With this world threatening every day to blow up in our faces, and with the question of that Muslim man still ringing in my ears, how can I not go forward?

“Prophecy, what is that?”

  • I’d like to answer him by finishing this project now.
  • I’d like to answer him by producing our version of “Little Boy.”
  • I’d like to answer him by producing a latter-rain tool that will not just reach him, but can be shared all over Islam.

That tool? The video we went to Iran to film: Cyrus the Great and the Prophecy of Daniel 9:25.

Can you partner with us?

The Story In Video

Below are four videos that chronicle our trip to Iran from idea to reality. The first, uploaded on September 12th, 2018, was only 36 seconds long. At that stage of development, we introduced our hoped-for trip to Iran as part of our Y-2K series.


By April 27th, 2019, we’d pulled Iran out of the mix and given it legs of its own. The result? Shushan. In this clip we focused on what our trip to Iran (and our focus on Daniel 9:25), could mean to the Jew.


This was followed by our actual trip to Iran, which took place from June 17th — 27th, 2019.

Anxious to show footage from this trip, by August 1st we were rushing to produce a report. In the end it wasn’t completed as we’d have liked, but we opted to keep it accessible to the public until we could produce it in the much more polished manner it deserves.

On August 31st we uploaded what our initial report lacked — i.e., an introduction that showcased the hand of God in the entire undertaking.


Below is the beginning of our initial report. As already indicated, it will be replaced as soon as we can return to it.


We solicit your prayers and financial support.

God bless you.
