Yet Ezekiel mentioned a whole group of nations in those ezekiel prophecies, and Iran wasn't even the principle nation mentioned. All of those other nations are not gearing up for any kind of major offensive against Israel and neither is Iran.

I have read Revelations over and over again. However, there are events that have taken place recently, which I feel are relevant to today. I don't know if anybody has noticed the increase of geotechtonic activity, flooding, hurricanes, and the awakening of what was dormant volcanoes.
Not trying to sound like a doom-sayer, but I can see that we are definitely in the end times, and if not in our lifetime, but the lifetime of the children who will be living in those times-it will be a time of great upheaval.
Also, why on the 6th of this month-there are telly programmes centering on what I would term the 'dark lord' that rules this planet. Why is he being given credibility? He has not done any favours to anybody; except create chaos.
As the translator notes, this collection should more properly titled 'the Pseudo-Sibylline Oracles'. The original Sibylline Books were closely-guarded oracular scrolls written by prophetic priestesses (the Sibylls) in the Etruscan and early Roman Era as far back as the 6th Century B.C.E. These books were destroyed, partially in a fire in 83 B.C.E., and finally burned by order of the Roman General Flavius Stilicho (365-408 C.E.).
There is very little knowledge of the actual contents of the original Sibylline Books. The texts which are presented here are forgeries, probably composed between the second to sixth century C.E. They purport to predict events which were already history or mythological history at the time of composition, as well as vague all-purpose predictions, especially woe for various cities and countries such as Rome and Assyria.

Simple question for the OP
Who exactly wrote the bible?

Is nice and interesting to find links between the past and the present in the name of prophecies.
But what many fail to understand is that many of these happenings of the Bible specially in the old testament was the struggles and happenings of the world at the time with the outcome in that time.
Yes many look at it like may fit or explain the present but actually is still the past.
But as time tells sometimes events in history may repeat themselves in the future.
