LATEST on Iran’s dual-strategy against halting nuclear accord

Further to my re-blog of Joel Rosenberg’s report on Secretary Pompeo’s speech on the USA’s new strategy on dealing with the Iranian regime, this morning’s pre-mainstream media news reveals the latter’s dual-strategy. It involves not only installing new surface-to-air missile batteries around their nuclear enrichment facilities at Natanz to protect from any Israeli and/or US attack, but also giving European powers an ultimatum!

According to DebkaFile, yesterday Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei, ‘tried to counter Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s ultimatum with his own for the European powers, the UK, France and Germany, which are trying to save the 2015 nuclear deal after the US walkout.

‘The dictats he put before them included:

  • ‘European banks must safeguard trade with Iran, and
  • ‘stop seeking new negotiations on Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional Middle East activities to gratify the US president.
  • ‘The Europeans must further guarantee Iran’s oil sales and compensate Tehran for losses incurred from US sanctions.
  • ‘If Europe fails to meet Khamenei’s demands, Iran will go back to enriching uranium, effectively turning its back on the 2015 nuclear deal.’

The Debka report concludes, ‘Israel is now back to square one, ie. 2012, when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, then defense minister, and Eliezer Shekedi, air force chief at the time, had girded Israel up for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, only to be held back by the Obama administration’s push for nuclear negotiations with Tehran.’

I note CBS News reported Monday in European Allies Alarmed...‘Reacting to Pompeo’s speech, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson committed to shielding European companies from renewed sanctions. “We are going to do everything we possibly can,” Johnson said of protecting European companies. “I’m not totally pessimistic about the situation.” Johnson said a “new jumbo Iran negotiation” would not be “very easy to achieve.”

‘For the time being, at least, Europeans are not shrinking away from the JCPOA. Federica Mogherini, the high representative of the European Union, explained that Europeans will remain committed to “full and effective implementation” of the JCPOA so long as Iran upholds its commitments. She also explained that Europeans are still unsure of the U.S. rationale for leaving the deal. (She said Monday) “Pompeo’s speech has not demonstrated how walking away from the JCPOA has made or will make the region safer from the threat of nuclear proliferation or how it puts us in a better position to influence Iran’s conduct.”

Such clueless comments arise from failing to follow God’s written word, thereby gaining an appreciation of His purposes in establishing the Jewish state of Israel. In view of this blog’s material on the EU, the perplexity of its ‘high representative’ is not surprising and suggests an influence from elsewhere! (God’s ‘Sign-language’: follow-up to EU-web #2… refers.)

Any intelligent person, knowing how assiduously the homicidal thug Saddam Hussein sought to build nuclear weapons and missiles, only to be prevented by the second Gulf War, would be extremely wary of all other fanatics’ surreptitious schemes and strategies to do the same; especially when consistently proclaiming their aim of destroying Israel.[Saddam’s Secrets by the Christian Iraqi air vice-marshal and general Georges Sada, pp 71 and 200 refer.]

History in the making: Trump terminates US role in ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran

Thirty years ago my jaw dropped upon seeing an utterly amazing ‘coincidence’ between a book I was reading (The Invisible Hand) and a video of Iran’s elite troops rehearsing an attack upon, and liberation of, Jerusalem (see ‘Bio’ ). After many years watching the malign machinations of that regime, I’m pleased there’s now a non-Israeli world leader adamantly refusing to tolerate Iranian terrorism AND is already taking action – with Britain and France! – as well as knowing those ‘Twelvers’ hell-bent eschatological motives! [See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration & ‘Mahdi’ tag]. Here’s Joel Rosenberg’s on yesterday’s announcement:

(Jerusalem, Israel) — After a careful policy review by senior administration officials, and consultation with a wide range of U.S. allies, President Donald Trump today kept his promise by announcing the U.S. will terminate the nuclear deal that President Obama and Secretary John Kerry negotiated with Iran. The President also announced the U.S. will imposing […]

This is the right decision & the President deserves tremendous credit. But pray for peace in the region. Things might get bumpy. Here’s the latest. — Joel C. Rosenberg’s Blog

BREAKING NEWS: Israel PM Netanyahu to address nation tonight on Iranian nuclear threat.

This morning’s news (UK time) is that, on his first trip to the Mid-East, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has given Saudi Arabia and Israel the ‘thumbs up’ to deal with Iran. [Update at Netanyahu Reveals Stunning Intelligence Coup ie. Iran lied about Deal.]

Netanyahu

(Jerusalem, Israel) — The news is just breaking here that Prime Minister Netanyahu will speak live to the nation in a televised address at 8pm local time (1pm Eastern).

At this hour, the PM is meeting with his Security Cabinet.

What we’re hearing so far is that the PM will discuss new intelligence Israel has obtained about Iran’s nuclear program and new plots Iran is developing against the State of Israel.

The speech comes at a moment of high tension in the region.

  • The Syrian regime continues using chemical weapons against its own people, despite the fact Russian President Putin and then US-President Barack Obama assured us all chemical weapons had been removed from Syria.
  • Russia and Iran continue to consolidate their military positions in Syria, and to prop up the Assad regime to keep the dictator in power.
  • Both the U.S. and Israel have launched air strikes against the…

Thursday 19th’s prophetical musing found fulfilled Friday 20th April

Having prepared materials for the blog introducing the especial significance of the 3rd week of April, then being surprised by the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, I went on to finish publishing. Only then did I begin mulling over everything that’s going on in this ‘Month of Infamy’, as Eric Hadik regards April with its regular crisis days of 19th and 20th April.

So weird that Israel has Memorial Day and Independence Day on those two dates!

In particular last Thursday, 19th April, I mused over the purported anti-chemical attacks in Syria as cloaking Iranian activities to prepare for their eventual assault upon Israel,  and wondered if they may mount some sort of attack during the holiday celebrations. Those who’ve been following the news will be aware of America’s intention to revise the international ‘Nuclear Deal’ with Iran.

Then I chuckled on recalling the Lord’s promises to protect Israel and that Iran may well come a ‘cropper’ – then this popped into mind > the Lord could arrange for a huge hole to open up and swallow their nuclear weapons facilities!

On catching up with overnight news on Friday morning, 20th April, my jaw dropped on seeing this headline on Koenig’s World Watch Daily home page:

‘Iran quake, at least 5.5 in magnitude, strikes near nuclear power plant’

It was followed by the map shown published the previous day in The Times of Israel (click/tap image for link, opens in same window):

 

For more details read USGS’ earthquake report.

Therefore, we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear program at any time!

Moreover, its occurring on the the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

Also, highly ‘God-incidental that I just ‘happened’ to have blogged in depth on this topic – is it not?

LOL – what incredible timing when writing in connection with Time!!

Israel’s 70th Anniversary – may nation and citizens be blessed

Independence Day in Israel begins tonight, Wednesday 19th April. Forty ambassadors to the United Nations from Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America, accompanied by Israel’s ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, have arrived for Israel’s 70th Anniversary celebrations.

Independence Day is traditionally celebrated with music and bright lights across the country’s towns and villages and the Israeli air force is expected to stage a spectacular fly-past on Thursday.

This date ‘coincides’ with that of significant events during previous Aprils, indicative of the historical nature of a particular cycle in human activity. Read the next post for all the  fascinating facts.

Jurgen Buhler, President of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, writes:

‘Israel is a nation that has faced unbelievable obstacles, and yet over these 70 years our mighty God has breathed life into the land once again. Seventy years ago, Israel was an undeveloped nation filled with orphans who survived through the Holocaust, and yet, God used those very people to cultivate, develop, grow, and bring new life back into the promised land!

‘The ICEJ rejoices with the Jewish people on April 18th and 19th as the streets of Israel resound with music, dancing, singing, and festivities to celebrate this spectacular moment in history! The international commemoration date will be on May 14th, which coincides with the opening date for the new US embassy in Jerusalem, so stay tuned for more opportunities to wish Israel a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

‘Today, let us rejoice around the world in the miracles God has done in the nation of Israel!

Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Here ICEJ’s VP Senior Spokesman David Parsons brings to mind the miracles God has done over these 70 years in Israel:

UPDATE (Thursday am):

Queen Elizabeth II and US President Donald Trump were among the well-wishers for Israel’s 70th anniversary.  Her Majesty’s congratulations on Israel’s anniversary were  conveyed through the British ambassador. Trump tweeted,  “Best wishes to Prime Minister Netanyahu and all of the people of Israel on the 70th Anniversary of your Great Independence. We have no better friends anywhere. Looking forward to moving our Embassy to Jerusalem next month!”

Bible Update: Gog-Magog developments

Further to February’s Bible Updates on Israel & USA vs Iran & Russia, I’m now reading  DebkaFile’s exclusive report issued just after midday, Jerusalem, about Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and Russian president Putin at loggerheads during yesterday’s phone conversation, which Bibi had initiated:

‘Vladimir Putin warned Binyamin Netanyahu to discontinue Israeli strikes in Syria because they may rock the Assad regime [backed by Moscow] and insisted on Israel respecting Syrian sovereignty and security. By this warning, Russia clamped down on the freedom the Israeli air force had hitherto enjoyed in Syrian air space for striking hostile elements, primarily Iran and Hizballah.

‘Netanyahu shot back, according to our sources, that Israel cannot possibly desist from action over Syria, since this would leave Iran at liberty to establish a permanent, hostile military presence in that country. And so, said the prime minister, Israel would have to persevere in its efforts to stop this happening. The conversation between Putin and Netanyahu ended in total discord…

Previously, Israel had kept Russia appraised of possible action against Iranian military activity inimical to Israel’s safety. As well as his knowing the existence of many sources of the nerve agent toxin Novichok, the release of which necessitated continued closure to the public of many locations within the city of Salisbury, that most sensitive working relationship meant Netanyahu refrained from joining the wide, international censure of Russia over the poisoning incident.  It’s no wonder their villainous and deeply sinister schemes countenance their Syrian vassal’s continued commissioning of war crimes.

[UPDATE: ‘Without revealing his source, French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday: “We have proof that last week chemical weapons, at least chlorine, were used by the regime of Bashar al-Assad” in Douma – Debka Breaking News.]

There was, however, another reason: Israel was preparing a pre-emptive airstrike against Iranian hardware at the T-4 airbase near Homs in Syria and this time kept Russia in the dark but informed President Trump!  This change of tack brought forth a dramatic change in Kremlin’s longstanding practice of letting Israel’s military operations pass without comment. Moscow’s tone towards Israel turned hostile (9 April) reports:

‘DebkaFile’s military and intelligence sources say that Moscow’s ire was prompted by five causes and more hostile steps against Israel may be coming:

  1. Israel’s reported military strike in Syria hit President Vladimir Putin at a highly vulnerable moment, when the US and its Western allies were holding him directly accountable for chemical weapons attacks in Syria and the United Kingdom.
  2. Putin never imagined that the nerve agent attack on the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter would be tied in with allegations that the Russian-backed Assad regime was using poison gas against Syrian civilians in Douma near Damascus.
  3. The Russian president suspects that Israel struck the T-4 airbase, a shared Syrian-Russian-Iranian air facility, as an advance foray on behalf of the US for testing Moscow’s reaction to a larger operation. He is therefore pushing back strongly against the Israeli attack to ward off a US sequel.
  4. After Israel’s wide-ranging air offensive on Feb. 10, which ended in one of its F-16 jets being shot down, Putin warned Jerusalem to desist from further attacks on Syrian targets, else the Russian air force would hit back. Israel complied for two months. But then, the compulsion became pressing to take out a key Iranian target, even at the risk of Russian disfavor.’

On the ‘Ezekiel 38 Alliance’, or Gog-Magog, political front we need to note the recent summit in Ankara between the leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran. Most noteworthy is the fact their currencies are ‘tumbling in tandem’, as reported by Asia Times.

Close on the heels of the summit Iran’s supreme leader once again spoke about their intentions of removing Israel. On arriving in Damascus on Tuesday his senior adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati, bluntly stated, “Israel’s air strike on the Syrian air base will not go unanswered,” he said, At the same time Tehran gained support from its Russian ally in the visit of special Russian emissary on Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev. In a long meeting with Iran’s national security adviser Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani, the Russian said Iran’s decision for a military response to the T-4 attack was understandable. He proposes combining Iran’s action against Israel with Russia’s plans for countering the forthcoming US-British-France operation in Syria (Moscow-Tehran link up to strike Israeli targets in response to US-led operation in Syria).

Those familiar with the prophetic nature of the holy scriptures watch all developments with deep interest. For example, here’s what the prophet Isiah brought that’s now coming into fulfillment in our days on ‘The burden (oracle/prophecy) against Damascus’ (Isaiah 17:1):

“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.”

Selah!

Further headlines/reading at Bill Koenig’s World Watch Daily.

Two critical Qs: First, did Putin order nerve agent attacks in the UK? Second, are NATO allies (eg. Baltic States) at risk of Russian attack?

This deliberate act of covert warfare against Britain may bring a couple of blessings in disguise: first, bringing the nation together after the deep divisions caused by the EU-referendum; secondly, the public awakening to the utter unsuitability/incompetence of Jeremy Corbyn in leadership of either his party or the nation!

Putin-phone

(Dallas, Texas) — First, a few thoughts on the situation unfolding in the U.K.

  • The poisoning of a Russian father and daughter — opponents of Vladimir Putin — on British soil by a military-grade nerve agent was reprehensible. It must be condemned by every world leader. The number of Putin critics murdered or severely injured in Great Britain is in the double digits and continues to rise. This is absolutely unacceptable and must not go unpunished.
  • I applaud British Prime Minister Theresa May for announcing an immediate series of punitive measures against the Russian government, including the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats suspected of being spies, the largest number of such expulsions in thirty years. 
  • NATO HQ also just issued a statement on these attacks on British soil, which reads in part: “The UK confirmed the use of a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia and…

The spiritual significance globally of Billy Graham’s ‘going home’

Thank you immensely to Suzanne Payne at UK Prophetic Words for this compilation, and to Jenny Knight for drawing my attention to that issued by Veronika West:

BILLY GRAHAM HAS GONE HOME – SEVERAL PROPHETS PROPHESIED A GREAT MOVE OF GOD BEING RELEASED ON THE EARTH

BILLY GRAHAM HAS GONE HOME TODAY

Several relevant prophetic words, including from Kim Clement and Veronika West:

Benny Hinn 1989: “The Lord said to me in 89, “When Oral Roberts and Billy Graham go home, it will be the key; it will be the sign of the beginning of the greatest revival on earth.” [Watch short video here.]

Billye Brim 2007 heard the Lord say: “Tell Oral Roberts some can choose the date of their departure as is revealed in the writings of the Apostle Paul. But some cannot; for the dates of their departures are in the sovereign plan of God. Two who cannot choose are Billy Graham and Oral Roberts. Their departures are in the sovereign plan of God and at their departures there will be a major shift in the heavenlies.” [See this link.]

Wanda Forbes 2007: God said to watch his generals. When Oral and Billy went home it would be a sign of a new facet of Gods glory and power. Their mantles – I saw a large shield burst into small ones. God said one would no longer carry the mantle but Gods faithful. God began to pour out small shields on the earth.

Jeff Kingshot 2010: The graduation of Billy Graham will be a sign of a great release of fire worldwide.

Kim Clement 12th Sep 2006:

God says, it shall come to pass, and you know it already that My great generals who have stood the test of time shall decree before they die “it is time for me, it is well with my soul.” Billy Graham, I am calling you to be with Me that the earth may see the Lord in a greater way, for your death will not bring about tears, but your death will bring about the unveiling of the Lord high and lifted up. For your death shall not bring, your death shall not bring the closing of the eyes of a generation, but your death shall bring the raising up of great evangelists of this time, says the Lord of Hosts.

“Billy Graham, it is time, for you have said it yourself, for this day God says, as it comes to pass that you come to Me, as it comes to pass that soon Oral Roberts comes to Me, that I will take these and I will anoint the earth with a gracious, gracious double portion and they, the people shall see the Lord and He will be high and lifted up…”

For I announced in Oregon a few months ago that there will be four great anointings that shall be released: the release of the anointing of Joseph, the release of the anointing of Enoch, the release of the anointing of Daniel and the release of the anointing of Isaiah. Tonight I speak of Isaiah, says the Spirit of the Lord, for you stand in the same place. For a veil has been rent and you can see Me that I am high and lifted up, says the Lord of Hosts. Now I say those words from My father, whom shall I send? Who shall go for us? And I hear the people say, “here am I, Lord, send me. Here am I, Lord, send me. Here am I, send me.” [Read full prophecy here.]

Veronika West 2 Dec 16: Heaven’s Government Being Established on Earth:

Then again I heard His voice, “MY GREAT AND LATE REFORMERS ARE NOW BEING GATHERED TOGETHER IN THIS HOLY AND SACRED PLACE, FOR AS IT IS IN HEAVEN SO SHALL IT BE NOW UPON THE EARTH”, then I looked up and I saw 10 Thrones sitting high upon a marble platform, as I drew a little closer suddenly I saw nine bright and radiant lights appear over the thrones, as I watched closely all nine of the bright lights moved upon the thrones all EXCEPT one which remained empty, now as I looked upon the empty throne it was quickened to me in the Spirit the name ‘BILLY GRAHAM’, then my eyes were drawn back again to the nine bright and radiant lights, and by just looking at them I knew and recognised all who were now sitting upon the thrones. I saw in the Spirit the late and great John Paul Jackson, I saw the late and great Bob Jones, I saw the late and great Miles Monroe, I saw the late and great Kim Clement, I saw the late and great Peter Wagner, I saw the late and great David Wilkerson, I saw the late and great Oral Roberts, I saw the late and great Kathryn Kuhlman and I saw the late and great John Wesley.

Now Again I knew by divine revelation that this Holy and Royal Counsel of God’s Great and late Apostles, Prophets and Evangelists were being gathered together in this most sacred place to bear Witness to HIS MIGHTY GOVERNING Hand moving upon the Nations of Earth. The atmosphere was exhilarating and pregnant with great expectation, I stood trembling but silently watching, listening and waiting and then again I heard these words, FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NOW BEING ESTABLISHED UPON THE EARTH.

The dream/encounter ended!

As I have prayed over this second dream encounter I have been somewhat perplexed by the 9 Great Reformers that I saw and the 10th throne yet to be filled. I have been seeking God for the meaning and significance of these particular saints that are being gathered together as one, prophetically I believe it has something to do with the mantles that they carried, the new Breed of leaders that are now emerging and the legacy they have left behind. Furthermore I felt a great significance to seeing 10 thrones and only 9 being occupied, I HUMBLY submit that when there are 10 thrones occupied that is when we will see a SUDDEN AND MIGHTY MOVE OF GOD COMING UPON THE EARTH like we have NEVER SEEN before. I believe there will be an UNPRECEDENTED OUTPOURING OF GOD’S GLORY UPON THE EARTH AND WE WILL SEE THE GREATEST MANIFESTATION OF SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES BEING BIRTHED IN THE NATIONS.

Veronika West 21 Feb 18:

“I PROPHESY THE TENTH THRONE IS NOW OCCUPIED….WATCH! FOR A GREAT AND MIGHTY SHIFT WILL NOW BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH”.

HA! THE WORD OF GOD IS BEING ESTABLISHED IN THE NATIONS.

On hearing of Billy Graham’s passing today it was quickened to me the powerful encounter I had concerning his passing and how it would be a great sign of “Gods Government being established upon the earth.”

FOUR Jesus’ End-Time Signs Seen – Pray for Christian ex-magistrate before Tribunal

‘As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, Peter, James, John and Andrew asked Him privately, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?“…Now learn this lesson from the fig-tree. As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening you know that it is near, right at the door!”  (Mark 13:3, 28-29 NIV).

Today, Croydon Employment Tribunal starts hearing the case of Richard Page – a Christian who was removed from being a magistrate after he expressed his belief that children do best with a mother and a father. The case is scheduled to last for five days.

An ‘Action Alert’ has been issued today to Pray for a fair, just outcome for Richard from Christian Concern (click to read full details)

Richard was first challenged by his seniors in late 2014 when, after hearing an adoption case, he could not agree with his fellow magistrates that placing a child into the care of a same-sex couple was ‘in the child’s best interest’. Richard says,

“As a magistrate, I have to act on the evidence before me and quite simply, I believe that there is not sufficient evidence to convince me that placing a child in the care of a same-sex couple can be as holistically beneficial to a child as placing them with a mum and dad as God and nature intended.

“I am surprised that this Lord Chancellor should seemingly pander to the new political orthodoxy when what it amounts to is social experimentation on the lives of the most vulnerable children in our communities. To punish me and to seek to silence me for expressing a dissenting view is deeply worrying. I shall challenge this decision as it is deeply illiberal and intolerant. It is vital the family law courts always have in mind the best interests of the children…”

Richard is supported by the Christian Legal Centre and represented by its Standing Counsel, human rights barrister Paul Diamond. The Centre’s chief executive, Andrea Minichiello Williams, comments:

“The Lord Chancellor has removed Richard from the magistracy for allegedly being ‘prejudiced’ and for speaking out in the media about what has happened to him.

This unmasks the face of the new political orthodoxy; it is unkind. It tries to silence opposing views and if it fails it crushes and punishes the person who holds those views.

“To remove someone like Richard from the bench is modern-day madness. He has a lifetime of public service and expertise in mental health. He is motivated by his Christian faith and a deep compassion for people.”

APPLICABLE SIGNS (About Signs refers):
  • #2 – Disciples will stand to testify before councils, rulers and kings and be beaten in synagogues.

Bible Update: Ezekiel 38-39 – Iran vs. Israel : USA and Russia?

After the weekend news of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s threat to ‘open the gates of hell’ over the Zionist regime (not the first such threat) and all American bases, we look at the headlines from pre-MSM (mainstream media) DEBKAfile and a few from MSM in Israel as a synopsis of latest events in Israel and in Syria. Links are provided should you wish to read further (MSM ones are slowed by adverts):

NB: Underlined items all now available (added 14 & 15 Feb ) per further Update with explanation of Iran’s deep animosity towards Israel:

Yesterday’s DEBKAfile report Iran’s Saegheh drone in Syria a worry for US as well as Israel gives penetrating insights into this conflict, as hinted in this extract:

‘The infiltrator drone was discovered to have been part of a whole fleet of advanced armed Saegheh UAVs housed at the T-4 base. The second wave of Israeli air strikes against 12 Syrian and Iranian targets decimated this fleet. Most importantly, the drone intrusion and its sequel exposed the incident to have been no one-off,  but part of a calculated Iranian plot against Israel at the highest level, that was coordinated in advance with the Russian air force, which shares the use of T-4, and the Syrian air defense systems, which operate under Russian command. It is equally important to note that Iran brought its Saegheh UAV’s to Syria with Moscow’s consent.
This may be accounted for by the drone’s unique provenance.

‘In a long and arduous process of reverse engineering, Iran’s munitions industry copied some of the components of the CIA’s most secret stealth drone, the RQ-170 Sentinel, after it was intercepted and captured over Iran in December 2011. The American drone, armed and capable of detecting clandestine nuclear tests, is rated the finest UAV of its kind in operation. Tehran claimed it had intercepted the Sentinel’s overflight by taking control of the American surveillance satellite communications which navigated the drone’s course. This was vehemently denied by Washington. At the time, DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources revealed that the those responsible for the feat of bringing the secret American drone down intact were not Iranian but Chinese cyber experts.

‘The Russians were keen on getting a look at the wonders of the American drone, but the Iranians refused to give them access. Eight years later…’ (click to read in full).

The Israeli-Syrian clash and what it likely means, by Mark Davidson

Mark’s opinion here is of interest relating to the prophecies in not only Daniel chapters 7 & 8 but also in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So what happened? According to Israeli authorities an Iranian drone flew into Israeli airspace yesterday. Israel responded with some F-16’s taking out the drone. (By the way, military drones are not the little 4- or 6-propellar toys we see flying around in the local news—they are unmanned aircraft which can be as large as manned fighters themselves.)

An IRGC officer being interviewed while standing next to one of Iran’s purported drones.

An antiaircraft missile launched from Syria downed one of the F-16s while in Israeli airspace. Israel then responded by taking out targets on the ground in Syria they thought were responsible for launching the drone and the missile.

An Israeli IAF F-16 fighter.

This Reuters article summarizes everything nicely.

Fulfilled Prophecy #26 – Exposed: ‘coup’ threats against Brexit and against Trump

UTTERLY fantastic ‘coincidence’ with what I’ve prepared for publishing today, as though more pieces of God’s ‘Invisible Jigsaw’!  One warning of a possible coup d’etat, another of international meddling, both exposing corrupt and apparently centrally directed, anti-democratic chicanery on opposite sides of ‘The Pond’.

Daily Telegraph’s investigative journalists are to be warmly congratulated (click to read)

The strap-line and opening paragraph of this exclusive investigation read:

‘Billionaire financier Soros hosts campaign dinner to undermine May and keep Britain in the EU – George Soros, the billionaire known as the man who “broke the Bank of England”, is backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, the Telegraph can disclose.

‘The investor is one of three senior figures linked to the Remain-supporting campaign group Best for Britain who plan to launch a nationwide advertising campaign this month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep Britain in the EU. The campaign is trying to recruit major Tory donors in an attempt to undermine Theresa May.

‘It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election, according to a strategy document leaked from a meeting of the group….’ [NB: ‘premium’ content, but one item/week may be accessed free-of-charge.]

This isn’t entirely new because in Why Leave the EU? Jonathan Ely posted rumours of Soros’ interference in our democratic decision to leave the ‘Tower of Babel/Brussels’. Also, December’s issue of Christian Voice published an in-depth report on Soros’ pan-EU anti-Brexit web by Stephen Green (see Farage Exposes Soros Plotters). AND his dealings were exposed in June 2016 ( Is Brexit an ‘Act of God’? Yes, but it challenges Churches!).

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF ‘THE POND’

A fortnight ago today I blogged about corruption worse than the Watergate scandal surfacing, as another example of fulfillment of my prophetical musing about the exposure of rotten politics and corruption in the UK, USA – and EU? (Months later examples erupted here and here, then a year later here; others brought prophecies on it, as blogged here and here in November 2016 and here a year later.)

Thank you Jennie C and Lynne H for informing me of news emerging the day before my blog of Franklin Graham’s warning about the ‘Deep State Threat’ – even a ‘coup d’etat’ – against President Trump.

In recent months the so-called “deep state” has been all over the news in America. A WND report of January says, “Loosely defined, it’s the career bureaucrats who wield considerable influence on the policy and practice of the federal government. While the heads of agencies are political appointees changing with each president, “deep state” members, with their own political ideologies and agendas, remain.”

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Franklin at a dinner held on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and his famous international charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, I recall Franklin having fallen foul of Obama’s policies in his first presidential term and I mentioned a couple of instances in an email of 2010 to friends: the Pentagon had withdrawn their invitation to attend a prayer breakfast and Muslim activists wanted him banned from attending America’s National Prayer Day!!! 

Yet he was one of several pastors who were invited to pray for Donald Trump at his Inauguration!

Fox News’ Franklin Graham Warns of Deep State Coup Against President Trump, is summarised as follows (courtesy Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House of 26 January, Bill’s emphases retained):

‘One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday (24th) on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

‘Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

‘The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

‘Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

That was a fortnight ago. For an update, with interpretation for we Brits, on the situation let’s check out the lady journalist ‘going wherever the evidence leads’, Melanie Phillips. In last Sunday’s article on the now-famous Nunes Memo her analysis leads her to note and conclude:

‘Bottom line seems to me to be that the FBI and DoJ misled the FISA court by failing to provide it with information that seriously called into question the reliability of the evidence put to it to support the request for a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. That would seem to be, to put it mildly, a serious abuse of legal process which totally undermined the protection afforded to the public against abuse of the FISA surveillance powers designed to guard against terrorist offences

‘We don’t know anything like the full picture on all this and so must be cautious. It may be that further information will emerge which will radically change the story that’s now unfolding. But as things stand, it looks very much as if, under the Obama administration, certain senior figures in the FBI and DoJ corrupted the administration of law enforcement and subverted the US constitution.

‘This is deeply shocking, and Congress must now continue to place more information in the public domain so that we can all finally assess just what took place here and just how deep this most fetid swamp has become.’

It must NOT escape our attention that Soros and Obama are in cahoots as more-or-less leaders of the Organization for Action (OfA) – AND the Telegraph’s journalists point out its violent nature as witnessed in the US and warns of a distinct possibility of similar deliberately organised manifestations happening in Britain!

On the Soros meeting in London, those investigators tell of a leaked strategy document for a campaign to undermine Brexit that reveals,

‘…a series of Momentum-style mass rallies and concerts are planned and the campaign will have a “heavy youth focus”…and reveals a plan to  “pressure” MPs in 100 Leave-supporting constituencies and sets out how organisers have a range of guerrilla marketing tactics” to build momentum.

‘(Soros’) involvement comes more than 25 years after he made over £1 billion betting against the pound shortly before the UK withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. More recently he has been accused of organising rallies against Donald Trump in the US and interfering in the democracies of several European nations.’ (Emphasis mine)

A year ago the New York Post, as part of the MSM not noted as a Trump supporter, reported on How Obama’s Scheming to Sabotage the Trump Presidency via the OfA.

As there’s no smoke without fire, maybe the Christian journalists who were deeply wary of the person and policies of the past American president, claiming he and Soros may be furthering the Antichrist’s agenda and strategies, could have discerned ‘the devil in the detail’?
